Welcome back to Top 5 Wednesday. This is a meme started in November of 2013 and is still going strong! If you’re interested in being a part of it please see the group on Goodreads.
This week’s topic is Favorite Non-Canon Ships. By ships we mean couples we wish would get together. By non-canon we mean maybe they didn’t actually get together in the book, but you wish they did or would in future.
Fitz + The Fool
This is definitely non-canon. For one thing, they are both … men? Ugh, this is so hard to do without spoilers. Let’s just say that this is completely feasible because…
- The Fool’s questionable gender
- The Fool’s other than human genetic makeup
- The incredible love they have for one another. It transcends romantic love, friendly love, familial love. They are m-f-e-o in the most real sense.
Jasnah + Kaladin
I know it seems like Kaladin and Shallan are slowly orbiting each other with intent, but I think Shallan needs to stay with her current guy. I think Jasnah is a real tough cookie, and independent. She is a better match for Kaladin once he grows up a little. I foresee fireworks!
Elias + Helene
Regardless of how drawn he is to Laia, he has a deep connection with Helene. She has been his friend and ally forever, and obviously loves him deeply. I think if he can stop running long enough to take stock of how he feels he might see that he cares for her that way too.
Miles + Elinor
It’s pretty much a foregone conclusion, but it was fun shipping it while the book lasted. It’s a done deal.
My ultimate ship … ship to end all ships … Jamie + Brienne
They belooooooong together. They must be together. They make each other better. Please George, please don’t kill them. Let them sit on the Iron Throne. I’m begging here …. he’s not listening is he. Dang it!
My second favorite ship is a t.v. only relationship. It’s short-lived but oh so good!
Brienne + Tormund
Don’t worry Tormund, she’ll come around.
