I’m terrible at trying to rank my OTPS! Especially since I’ve recently gotten into K-dramas and I love them so much and those ships seem to involve my feels so much more than I ever thought they could. Because of that, I’ll have to make two top fives - one list for my top 5 K-drama ships and one list for all the other shows.
Here goes…(in no particular order because choosing a top five is hard enough but ranking them is impossible!)
Dan & Blair (Gossip Girl)
Damon & Elena (The Vampire Diaries)
Ten & Donna (Doctor Who)
Kyon & Yuki (The Melancholy of Haruhi Suzumiya)
Carol & Daryl (The Walking Dead)
As for the K-dramas…
Gun Jun Pyo & Geum Jan Di (Boys Over Flowers)
Song Yi Soo & Song Yi Kyung (49 Days)
Go Eun Chan & Choi Han Gyul (Coffee Prince)
Joo Joong Won & Tae Gong Shil (The Master’s Sun)
Gong Ah Jung & Hyun Ki Joon (Lie to Me)
I have so many honorable mentions I want to add, but I shall refrain. Thanks for the question, lovely Nonny! :)
omg! i just read your post about BOF and got feels --- i felt the same way when i watched it. i think ive rewatched it like 20 times now lol
I know, right?
BOF was my first K-drama and even though I’ve seen several now, it remains firmly fixed in my top five. All I have to do is see a gif or a quote form the show and I’m bombarded with feels all over again. I just love it! :)
Just finished The Master’s Sun and I’m feeling really giddy because it was so freaking adorable and the ending was perfect. But I’m also feeling miserable because what the heck am I supposed to watch now?! I loved those characters so much. I’ve never before watched a show where I genuinely enjoyed every single character’s story and was satisfied with how they all ended up. I wish I could erase it from my memory and watch it all over again.
Seriously, if you’re into K-dramas (or even if you’re not) and you haven’t seen it yet, get on that because it’s seriously wonderful. A bit campy at times, but wonderful :D
I am considering renaming The Day of the Doctor, ‘The Day of Steven Moffat and yet another reason why he should step down as showrunner right now before it is too late, which it already may be.’
And for once, I am not being dramatic. Saturday’s much anticipated night of entertainment left many Whovians with a bad taste in their mouths. It left us scratching our heads, pulling out our hair, and gawping at our televisions with confusion and disbelief. Tearing off our colourful scarves, throwing down our fezzes, and sniffing Ten-style, whilst giving our screens a very dirty Nine-ish side-eye.
Because it was a shambles. There is no pleasant way to put it. It was an utterly awful piece of television that I am honestly quite surprised the BBC allowed to air.
It lacked plot, characterisation, and most importantly, lacked the essence of Doctor Who.
I came away from the episode feeling majorly disappointed and betrayed. After all the hype, we had some action-film with no heart. All flash and no substance. Brilliant effects, but no emotional depth.
And I was not the only one to be saddened by this sorry state of affairs. My ask box was flooded by devastated Doctor Who fans. Tumblr was in a state of disbelief. Despite the positive reaction the reviewers were boasting of, I saw none of it. Not on Gallifrey Base, not on Tumblr, and not amongst the fans I know to be absolutely dedicated and in love with the show.
To me, the message we take from this is clear. Moffat has to go. He honestly does.
I have nothing against the man in general, but his writing simply isn’t up to scratch. The plots make no sense, the characters lack any humanity or depth, his work is littered with sexism, he has no respect for classic Who, and he’s now upsetting the classic Doctor actors.
It’s just such an almighty shame that the fiftieth fell to him, of all people. It came at a time when the writing is weak, when the characters don’t fly, when the audience is losing their connection with the Doctor.
And yet this is what was beamed out to the globe. Our television event of the year, Britain at it’s creative best, apparently.
I’m ashamed of it. I truly am. New viewers won’t want to tune back in. Old viewers are giving up watching in disgust.
Doctor Who has lost its heart and soul.
But now begins my review of the episode. The Day of the Doctor. Watched by double the population of Canada, it’s said.
i actually like asshole couples best like the couples that pick on each other so much and call each other names but it’s okay because you know they’re actually totally in love and none of it is meant in a mean way and every insult is punctuated by a sweet comment to remind the other how much they actually adore them and i’m sorry but there isn’t anything cuter ok
“There’s an awesome moment—and this is why Adam Scott’s great—where Leslie’s giving a talking-head interview in the parking lot of the police station, and Adam is sitting in their car waiting for her to finish so they can drive home. Deep in the background, an unseen extra in a police uniform walks through the frame, and Adam reacts as if someone just jumped out and yelled “Boo!” in a haunted house. It’s this tiny little moment where no one told him to do that, he was just so in character, and he latched onto that character trait of being afraid of cops so thoroughly that he just did that in the deep background of a talking head.”—
In my experience, writers tend to be really good at the inside of their own heads and imaginary people, and a lot less good at the stuff going on outside, which means that quite often if you flirt with us we will completely fail to notice, leaving everybody involved slightly uncomfortable and more than slightly unlaid.
So I would suggest that any attempted seduction of a writer would probably go a great deal easier for all parties if you sent them a cheerful note saying “YOU ARE INVITED TO A SEDUCTION: Please come to dinner on Friday Night. Wear the kind of clothes you would like to be seduced in.”
And alcohol may help, too. Or kissing. Many writers figure out that they’re being seduced or flirted with if someone is actually kissing them.
IF YOU SAY YOU LIKE READING BUT YOU CHOOSE TO BUY A KINDLE OVER AN ACTUAL PHYSICAL BOOK THEN I SWEAR TO GOD I AM GOING TO COME INTO YOUR HOUSE IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT AND WAKE YOU UP AND HUG YOU SO HARD AND MAYBE WE CAN PAINT OUR NAILS TOGETHER AND TALK ABOUT OUR FAVOURITE BOOKS BECAUSE READING IS A WONDERFUL THING AND THE MAGIC IS IN THE WORDS SO WE SHOULD NEVER LIMIT OURSELVES BECAUSE SOME PEOPLE THINK THEY’RE BETTER THAN YOU FOR THE WAY THEY CHOOSE TO READ
You are good at something, stop lying to yourself. You’re good at breaking down comic book plots, cooking ramen perfectly, making your friends happy, knowing the time without looking at a clock, getting the perfect ending at RPG’s, or figuring out the twist ending to movies. Don’t let society tell you your talents are meaningless because they don’t serve an economical purpose. Your talents reflect your interests and passions, and what’s important to you is important.
those people you want to be best friends with on here and you want to go into their ask and scream about everything you two have in common and how funny they are and how great they are and how much you love them and want to be really cool friends with really cool inside jokes but the only thing you can bring yourself to say, if anything at all, is “hey! i really like your blog :)”
I just want to get a cute apartment with a cute person and wear nothing but underwear and a big t-shirt or sweater and dance around, cook for each other, make our own movies and record each other while we’re playing, smiling, and laughing, and lay in bed together at night snuggled up warm together so close that we can hear each others pulse, ya feel me
