There’s nothing more depressing than a ship reaching the end of it’s journey. But that’s exactly what happened with Medea and Chris. What’s happening with them. They had a great plot which is drawing to a close. We have more things in store for them, smaller things which will keep them alive, but it is like watching an era come to an end. Chredea will always be one of my favourite ships because they are so epic together.

I do not give Seamus or this ship enough credit. It is one of those things that when I thread them, I fully remember exactly why I love them. I love them because they are flawless and they are different. They have a different aspect to a relationship and to roleplaying, even without the fact that Seamus belongs to a crime family. One of my favourite things in roleplaying is when I get to start a relationship or a friendship from scratch. That was what happened with Lydia and Seamus here. We built them up from nothing and then brought them into something fantastic and amazing. Seamus is so in love with this girl and he does not even realize it. Something which he had always considered to be a fickle emotion, a weak emotion, it’s going to rattle him to his bones when he does realize.
Clearly, the first and most important thing that I want to happen here is that I want Seamus to realize his feelings for Lydia. He’s close. He knows that there is a void in his life when she is not there. He knows a lot of the small details which makes up the big picture, he just refuses to see that big picture. I want to explore his jealousy and then I finally want to lead into Lydia getting to know the real Seamus. With her getting to see his life and who he is. Because there is no way for this relationship to work if he does not end up being completely truthful with her. Or, I guess they could pull a Ashton Kutcher/Katherine Heigel from Killers. Actually, both would be fun. Who knows. I love the spontaneity of this couple, and it’s an aspect of them that I hope perseveres.

These two are not exactly a couple yet. They are still in their first thread together, but they are plotted together in the hopes of getting there one day. In theory, it’ll work. When it comes to Prudy? Everything is a toss up. But the dynamic that they have is fun right now. He is a contrast, a perfect foil to Nick which is something that Prudy needs. She does not need a constant reminder of the man who put her back together. What we have stored for these two is all kinds of epic to be honest, and I hope every puzzle piece falls together in the end.

↳ with jay
Let me start off with the fact that this was one of my favourite ships ever. It was different, it was unique, and though they never actually made it to a couple I still thought that they were one of the best thing that I ever wrote. Jay was a flawless writer too, one who challenged me and pushed me to write better. I became a better writer because of this couple. I pushed myself harder and it was a flawless symbiotic relationship. Prudy and Nick - they were amazing. He met her in trying to find out more about his sister’s drug addict boyfriend and quickly realized that she was an addict as well. He took an interest in her, and when Nick took an interest in someone it never ended well. He was almost a full on certified stalker and Prudy should have been scared, but she wasn’t. When she found out that she was going to be an aunt, she freaked. She couldn’t be an addict around that baby. Addicts in their family died. The person she went to for help? Was Nick. And he did so without a question. He swept her away an put her through detox. Six months they spent together holed up as she went through some of the worst spells of her life. He was there, the entire time.

Prudy had once been a girl called Persephone and she had a boy called Dallas and they were perfect in every way. He was sweet and kind, a complete foil to the shattered and broken girl that he had found in Percy. He worked his way into her shell and he brought her out of it. He drew her out to him. And she challenged him, making him do things which were outside of his comfort zone and which had him having a lot more fun in life. They were extremely cute and precious.

Ugh. ugh. Ugh. These two man. These two. They are easily my favourite ship that I have with Lily, edging out Preston and Blaze only by a little bit. But the thing is, Vanna had never clicked with a person in the way that she ended up clicking with Grayson. I was given so much free reign when Lily asked me to make a girl for Grayson and I thought Vanna was perfect to remove the stick from Grayson’s ass. But it turned out that more than her being good for him - he was so good for her. He is so good for her. The two of them, they have gone through so much in the last year. It really is one of my favourite things to start a couple from scratch. To start them where they did not know of each other at all and build them up from nothing. That’s what Granna has. They soon started to mold and shape each other, making the other better people without really pushing them into anything that they did not want to do. It was like a guiding hand through the past year. Course, it’s never fun until you cause the drama, which came in the form of Grayson realizing that Vanna had kept an entire part of her life a secret from him. And now for the first time, Vanna has to fight instead of run.
It is obvious that I love these two. More than anything because Lily’s boys are really flawless and whenever I get to play a girl for one of them, I fangirl. Granna obviously has a long way to go, starting off with rebuilding what she broke in her insecurities and secrecy. She’s going to have to learn that secrecy is something that Grayson will never accept. More than that, she is finally going to have to trust someone with all the pain that she has been through, because only then will she be able to heal. These two have been dancing around their feelings for so long. They obviously like each other, but for their own reasons were too afraid to admit it. Not until shit hit the fan. It’s time for them to start cleaning up the mess that has resulted.

I love Christian and Roxy in ways that I cannot even explain. Roxy was a transfer from another site where i had a plot with another boy. That plot couldn’t have been more different from what Roxy has now with Christian. In moving her to Unkindess, Christian was adapted into her past and what emerged was such a great plot. These two are as thick as thieves. Both of them had shitty parents and were born into shitty lives. The only good things in their lives were each other. When Roxy was pulled away into the foster system, she lost contact with him. He thought she was dead, killed by her abusive step-dad. She had no idea where he was. More recently, they found each other again and have embarked on incredibly trying and terrifying situations that no teenager should ever face. But the thing is, that they have each other. They are each other’s anchors to reality, they are the ones who protect each other and care for each other. They take the phrase - i’d kill for you to an entirely new meaning because Christian has actually killed for Roxy.
These two, are just flawless. I hate myself for ever thinking that I was going to drop her. But I am not. She is here to stay and she is so preciously intertwined with him. They are struggling to be normal, to be normal members of this society which has outcast them for so long. All Roxy wants is a normal life, and she wants that with him. But the thing is, that these two are anything but normal. They are so much more than that. They are those idiots who are going to end up married in Vegas when she turns eighteen. They’re going to do a much better job with their kids than their parents ever did. They might not ever reach the sense of normalcy that Roxy so desires and craves, but they are going to attain happiness. Because happiness to them, is when they are with each other.

↳ with matt
So clearly, Kelly is only allowed to be in ships with Matt’s boys. Which I don’t mind one bit because Kelly and Jace are actually so good together. They’re not typical, and it’s a different aspect to roleplaying which I really enjoy threading. First, Jace is blind. Second, Kelly is bipolar. Not only that, Kelly is not the kind of person who is good with empathizing with other people. These two first met when Kelly accidentally spilled her coffee on Jace. From there it became clear that Jace was a person who challenged Kelly. He didn’t take her bullshit. He didn’t take her overdramatic behaviour. He didn’t take any of it, instead he challenged her and he called her out on her shit. With him confessing that he liked her, it was one of the hardest things for Kelly to accept because she was still reeling from her break up and the words that Porter had told her in breaking up with her. She was clingy, overbearing, essentially a bitch. Then there was Jace, who could not see and therefore could not be attracted to her looks. He was attracted to her flawed personality so she did not get it.
Jace and Kelly have so much ahead of them. They are one of my favourite couples to play because of the amount of things that we have in store for them. Working through both of their medical problems. Working through their relationship problems. Jace is going to really help Kelly grow into a well rounded and better person.

Once again, I covered a lot of what I adored Noah and Kelly under Kelly’s blurb. I will never regret making this character because if there is one thing that i love, it’s a good break up. While we didn’t actually get to thread the break up, I’m having too much fun exploring the psychological aspects of what the break up has had on Kelly. When they were together though, Noah was the sweetest thing to her. They were blissfully perfect, except for the fact that they - weren’t.

I covered a lot of the reasons why I loved Jellie so much. I credit them for my return to rp and more importantly the reason that I stayed. They were so perfectly bad for each other. They exemplified one of those relationships where you think you know a person, but you really don’t. As time went on, they realized more and more how different they were. And that caused their demise. Never forgotten.
