Yes, I’m finally making a post that’s not book related! I’m not going to list all of my favorite ships, obviously, but these are my ten favorites. First two are my OTPs but other ships aren’t in any kind of order.
Warning: This might contain spoilers on certain TV shows.
1. Spike and Buffy Summers (Buffy The Vampire Slayer)
“A hundred plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of. You. Hey, look at me. I’m not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you – it has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try… I’ve seen your kindness, and your strength, I’ve seen the best and the worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one, Buffy.”
This is from my all time favorite show, so it shouldn’t come out as a surprise that it is my number one. I have loved these two since I can remember and they better be the endgame in the comics!
These two invented the enemies to lovers trope. She’s the vampire slayer and he’s a vampire, whose known for killing vampire slayers. Not enough to convince you?
Men have left her time and time again, starting with her father but he was always there for no matter what.
They understand and love each other.
2. Klaus Mikaelson and Caroline Forbes (The Vampire Diaries/The Originals)
“Tyler is your first love but I intend to be your last. However long it takes”
These two stole my heart from the start. After 3×11 I was hooked and there was no coming back. Klaus is a thousand years old original vampire and Caroline is a baby vampire. Before Caroline, we never saw the good in Klaus.
I love Candice and Joseph’s chemistry on screen. Klaus and Caroline didn’t have a scene together in like five years (with all the time jumps it was 16 years for them while we waited for five years) but they still had more chemistry between each other than they had with any other character on either show. They show the chemistry just by looking at each other.
Those who have watched the pilot of the vampire diaries know how Caroline told Bonnie that she’s never the one. This was proved again and again in the show by all her love interest and even friends. Klaus is the only one who chose her first.
Now we just need to wait until season five finale to their endgame.
3. Kara Danvers and Mon-el (Supergirl)
“As long as you’re safe”
I won’t go great detail in this ship because I’m still bitter. They went through so much and deserved so much better. Mon-el deserved better.
A boy from Daxam and a girl from Krypton. These two didn’t get along well at first, mainly because they were raised to hate each other but they fell in love. They even had their true love kiss. She gave him her mother’s neckless and he gave her his legion ring.
I know a lot of people hated Mon-el, mainly Supercorp fans but I just can’t even talk about it yet. It’s just too fresh.
4. Killian Jones and Emma Swan (Once Upon A Time)
“Our story began on the beanstalk and I’ll be damned if it ends there, too.”
Savior and the pirate who fought for their happy ending. These two would literally go to hell and back for each other.
I’m so happy to ship this endgame. If you haven’t watched OUAT yet. Go watch it now. It’s a show about Hope.
5. Magnus Bane and Alec Lightwood (Shadowhunters)
“You gave me that omamori charm that I carry with me every day.”
This is the only gay ship in my list and I’m sorry but I don’t like that many LGBT+ ships in television. These two are the reason I love Shadowhunters so much. Let’s be honest and say that I don’t like TV! Jace and Clary… like at all.
They are opposites and they always worry about each other.
6. Katherine Pierce and Elijah Mikaelson (The Vampire Diaries)
“If we ceast to believe in love, why would we want to live?”
Am I the only one who is bitter about this? I have shipped these two since season two. Writers why did you have to give me those amazing flashbacks and then just not to get them together, huh? They should’ve had more scenes together.
They loved each other over 500 years and they expect us to believe that after teasing us with that episode in season four Katherine is suddenly in love with Stefan again and he falls for Hayley.
Katherine and Elijah belong together. I’m still in denial, OK?
7. Freya Mikaelson and Lucien Castle (The Originals)
“Don’t tell me you haven’t felt the spark between us?”
Don’t get me wrong: I’m happy that Freya is getting her happy ending. That doesn’t mean I’m still not upset over the power couple we could’ve had if the writers wouldn’t have screwed another of my favorite ships.
I feel like writers ruined every single one of my favorite ships and only kept the ones I can’t stand.
8. Winifred Burkle and Wesley Wyndam-Price (Angel Tv Series)
“I’ve loved you since I’ve known you. I think maybe even before.”
This was my only ship in the show. I have mixed feelings about season five because they finally got together but they were destroyed too. Why did Whedon have to give them to me just to rip my heart out?
He just loved her so, so much and made her happy.
9. Logan Echolls and Veronica Mars (Veronica Mars)
“I thought our story was epic, you know. You and me. Spanning years and continents. Lives ruined and blood shed. Epic.”
This is probably one of two contemporary ships here. To be honest I don’t remember much about the movie. I remember they were together in it but were they endgame? No idea.
Logan and Veronica were on and off through three seasons of Veronica Mars. He wanted always to keep her safe and they were a great team.
10. Nathan Scott and Hayley James Scott (One Tree Hill)
“Always and forever.”
These two aren’t way up in my list but they were the definition of goals. I wish I had a relationship like theirs.
They met in high school and they had big dreams that wouldn’t have mattered without each other. She loves every version of him.
I also loved their rain kisses. They invented them way before Delena did.
What are some of your favorite TV ships?
