Which Queer Ships Could Come True?

5. Emma and Regina, "Once Upon a Time"
While Emma and Regina could unite to create a pretty awesome couple nickname (SwanQueen) at least one of them would have to go through some intense character changes for this ship to make any sense. There just isn't a relationship book that covers how to deal with the fact that your girlfriend wiped your parents' memories, leaving you to grow up an orphan in a world that wasn't your own.

4. Maura and Jane, "Rizzoli and Isles"

It's not that the cop and the coroner wouldn't make a pretty cute couple, it's the show's demographic that makes this ship unlikely to be written in. Bottom line, this is a drama your mom watches, and whil you mom might be cool enough to keep tuning in if Maura and Jane start stealing kisses over the dead bodies, the network probably won't alienated the million moms with two lesbian protagonists

3. Dean and Castiel, "Supernatural"

Looking past any hints that this relationship is going canon in the actual episodes (and there are an endless supply) Destiel will most likely come true, however briefly, just because the writers will fear for their safety from what might be the most rabid group of shippers on the internet.

2. Sleeping Beauty and Mulan, "Once Upon A Time"
They're going to kiss. It's going to happen. Maybe it'll happen in a dream sequence, but the brave rescuer and the girl she's protecting are going to lock lips at some point.

1. Quinn and Rachel, "Glee"
After two and a half seasons of bitter rivalry and a kind of sudden friendship, Quinn and Rachel have one of the more stable relationships on "Glee." No couple is off limits in the world of spontaneous song, and it would be kind of interesting to see a pairing that had a half uninterested in pursuing a life on the stage.

I feel the same way, even with ships that were always intended from the start. If it isn't done properly, the entire dynamic of the show changes. It happened with Bones, and I don't want to see something like that happen with SPN.

Plus - I don't even FEEL it. I see more of a quasi-romantic vibe happening with Dean and Benny, and if either Winchester felt something romantic toward Castiel, I feel like it would be Sam. But I still wouldn't want to see either of those scenarios, either, tbh. That's not why I enjoy this show.

Romance always seem to turn people into the weepiest, sappiest of saps. Didn't Spike turn into a simpering love struck fool while he was in a relationship with Buffy? I haven't watched the show in ages and tbh I rejoiced when bad ass Spike came back to grace his bad ass presence in Angel.

tbh I don't want to see any relationship with Sam ever. After season one I've always found Sam to be a not-so-closeted selfish douche. Occasionally I wished than Dean would just punch him in the face. That's one of the reasons why I don't want Castiel/Dean; a) I feel like their bond to too sacred to be spoiled with half-ass romance plotlines and b) Castiel is like that one steady thing in Dean's like that he needs that doesn't take him for granted. Sure I like Sam and John, but they are both pretty selfish people if you think about it.

Mind you I haven't seen Supernatural upwards from season 5 except for random episodes here and there from 6.

IDKWTF Spike was supposed to be. What a mess that was, and yes, I enjoyed bad ass Spike in Angel more than Buffy S6 Spike.

I don't want Sam to have a relationship, either. I do want to see him get laid some more, though.

I disagree with you 100% on Castiel and Dean having a sacred bond of any kind, though. Dean's rarely treated Castiel like anything other than a nuisance. He obviously cares about him like family, but he spent more time treating him like shit than anything else. I've always felt bad for Castiel. Sam was clearly the one who revered Castiel, and the only one to stick up for him at times, and he understood what Castiel was going through when he went on his God trip, but Dean was always ready to let Castiel just fuck off to parts unknown.

John was a selfish ass, though, I agree with you on that.

Oh, you don't even WATCH the show anymore? Lol, welp. Okie dokie, then!
