Why yes, I have the flu, glad you asked. And since I have been forced to leave the loving and dedicated care of the co-alpha, there is no one to stop me from indulging in some shameless feel-better activities. One of those – yup, you’ve guessed it again – is talking about shipping.

It can be argued about what a shipper’s tipping point is. Is it the moment you first think of the ship? The moment your ship is first recognized in the original material, if you’re one of the lucky canon shippers (or semi-subtext shippers)? The moment you fall for the ship, really, really hard? Or the moment when your ship’s sails spread themselves gloriously all over the place, when that private moment between characters explodes in the vast oceans of Netlandia and all of your patient waiting finally pays off?
For me, it’s a little bit of all of the above. And since the flu has some unexpected side-effects (like, being unable to really type due to over-the-top body temperature), for the Full Moon of February, please, enjoy just a few of my personal shipper tipping points.
Thus I leave you at the mercy of your own showrunners/screenwriters/authors, while I go catch up on some reading for work – not really much more I can do at the moment, y’know.
May this Full Moon find you and all your ships well! Easy on the wine.
