In a magical world full of shippiness, I hold high the white flag of "No Ship!" That's right: I don't ship. I might allude, imply, hint, or even subtextualize, but there will be no pairing off in whatever I write. Partly because I can't write romance worth a darn, and partly because I think that the characters are so much more, and have much larger "destinies" than who they end up with. *blinkblink*
Not that I'm against shipping, or have anything against shippers. I just don't do it, and I'm usually not that interested in "romance" stories. I would rather see a psychological thriller over a chick flick any day of the week. However, if a relationship can believably be built during the plot, and isn't actually *the plot itself*, I find the story much more charming and interesting.
Now if only I could write something half as interesting as all of the shipper fics! Ha.
On a more personal (but not too personal) note, I'm big into Astrology. Yes, I know it isn't anything approaching a science, and tends to be too vague to be of any real use, but I think it's interesting. However, it's not the fluffy, brighten your day Horoscope stuff that keeps me entertained: It's the dark, more negative (and completely hilarious) side that I love. For example:
Aries: Contemplates taking a hammer to a computer at least 3 times a week for trivial reasons. And then taking a hammer to that hammer.
Taurus: Secretly wants to break into a stranger's home and eat all of their food. In their kitchen. And then do their dishes.
Gemini: Buys a dozen cell phones so that they can leave messages to themselves on voicemail. Always forgets to get back to them.
Cancer: Stays up late at night waiting for the neighbors to go to bed and put the cat out so they can "adopt" it under the cover of darkness.
Leo: Thinks that a business of "paparazzi for hire" is a great idea, and would sell their motorcycle for a Prom Night entourage of them.
Virgo: Will try to finish your sentence before you've even started it. Claims that they already knew that.
Libra: Wants to clone themself so they can have someone who loves them like they deserve. Creates a 2nd clone behind the 1st clone's back.
Scorpio: Plots your death down to their last alibi, but decides that you get to live because your stupidity causes others suffering.
Sagittarius: Takes candy from strangers, looks at boxes of puppies in unmarked vans, but refuses to bathe for fear of drowning.
Capricorn: Would almost rather be a farmer than a CEO, so that they could live the simple life of genetically engineering trees that grow money.
Aquarius: Aspires to open a private island for orphaned children. Opts-out for robots instead, because of the profound emotional connection.
Pisces: Sometimes experiences bouts of homelessness because they can't actually remember where they live.
See, now wasn't that fun? Don't we all feel good about ourselves?
