Survival of the Hottest Ship - Part Uno

[Please be advised that the comments may contain spoilers for manga/anime Bleach. Proceed at your own risk.


And so it begins (again)!

Even though we will crown an eventual champion from each of the four tournament sections, a total of 8 pairings will move on from here to battle it out to be ship_manifesto's hottest ship for 2009. So don't worry if your favorite doesn't make it to the to the Final Four; we're taking all who remain standing during the Elite 8 round onto the final showdown.

Since some of us may be undecided about who to vote for in today's poll we'd welcome your sound and reasoned arguments as to why your pick should move on the next round (please feel free to include lots of hot photographic evidence to substantiate your claim ). It will certainly be appreciated by your mods.

There will be a Part II to this Battle Royale wherein your remaining picks will battle it out to join our Part I winners for the August finale.

Please feel free to skip over any pairings you're not familiar with or have little interest in.

[ETA: I was in such a hurry to get the poll back up that I forgot to include the fandoms for a couple of pairings. Steven Hyde/Jackie Burkhart (That 70s Show), Rory Gilmore/Jess Mariano (The Gilmore Girls), and Sawyer/Kate (LOST). Thanks for your patience. ]

Ahh! I forgot to vote for Misty/Ash! :(

Cool poll btw!


Come on you know you like it ;D
Aww, man. Why are some of my favourite ships up against each other when other match ups are against people and fandoms I've never heard of!

(Count D/Leon against Ed/Winry was particularly evil)
Anne/Gilbert vs. Lyra/Will was tough, too!
Awesome poll! Can't wait to see the results.

title or description

'Tis the forbidden fruit of anime pairings. ; )

C'mon, you know you want to. ^^

SECONDED. SO HARD.
No problem! You want convincing? I can do convincing.

Haruka/Michiru (Sailor Moon)

The ultimate partner pairing! They fight together! They live together! They even have a daughter! Plus, Michiru fully believes that a world without Haruka is not worth saving, and she's not afraid to show it.

Besides, they're the classic yuri/femslash pairing. Show respect for the classics!

Riff/Cain (Cain Saga/Godchild)

Oh the devotion! Oh the love! Oh the extreme emotional dependence! Cain and Riff need each other. Neither one is quite complete without the other. With them, even shoelaces and tea take on deep importance. Riff can find Cain anywhere in London just by following his thoughts. Now, that's a connection. Plus, they're quite happy to go to hell, as long as they're going the together.

LOVE YOU SO MUCH!!
You voted for Shunsui/Nanao? *pets* I'm sorry.
MAN, YOU PUT GOKU AND VEGETA, one of my oldest fave ships (and I don't have that many!) against Ulquiorra and Orihime of Bleach! But Ulqui and Hime win out because, sheeeeesh, if there was EVER a hottest pairing of 2009, those two reaching hands for one another as he's effing dissolving and him thinking that he's FOUND A HEART IN HIS HAND. OMFG. OMFG.

CANON BABY. I cried for three days.

*squee*

I know, right? ^^
Awesome poll!

Scar/Alexa Woods

*squees*
Above icon speaks for Jecht/Auron. :|b

← this one speaks for Zelos/Lloyd. :|b (because heck knows manifesto-in-a-comment is not how I should spend this evening. THEY'RE VERY PRETTY, RIGHT? VOTE VOTE VOTE)

:D Yeah, I tapped-- I mean VOTED for that 1

Don't forget the arena quote of "Put on a show that will make me fall in love" or "Hey baby, how do you like me now?!" quote from when you take down Forcystus.

..or the fact that he calls Lloyd "Hunny" in the Japanese version. Or in the sequel how he's all "I TRUST LLOYD."

...although, technically I think my OTP is ZELOS/EVERYONE because the awesome, it is too awesome to keep in one place.

That's it, skriptspam to ensue.

Curry scene:

Lloyd: Zelos, how about you make some?

Zelos: Okay! I'll show you what I can do!

[After Zelos cooks the curry]

Gnomelette4: Oh! So this is "spicy"!

Zelos: Well? Well? It's spicy, but good, right?

[Gnomelette eats the curry]

Gnomelette4: Oh! Spicy! Spicy!

Lloyd: *sweatdrop* He probably doesn't understand what spicy is.

Zelos: (!) W...well, it's not like I put a lot of effort into it or anything,
anyway...

Presea: Zelos. You were dripping with sweat.

Regal: Yes, you appeared to be very serious about making it...

Zelos: (...)

Lloyd: I just tried some, and it's good. It's a waste to just feed it to that
Gnomelette.

Zelos: *walks over to Lloyd* Bud! <3 *holds out arms for a hug*

Lloyd: Hey! Stop that!


Shadow Temple or Darkness temple OR WHATEVER IT'S CALLED. (Sheesh, I hated that one)


Lloyd: It looks like I can go in through there. I'll go take a look.

Zelos: Ohh! Lloyd! What a brave thing to say!

Lloyd: Haha, don't worry. I'll be right back. Wait here.

[Other times in]

Lloyd: Wait here.

Zelos: Hurry back.

Iselia Ranch:

Lloyd: ...I don't have a clue what any of this stuff does.

Zelos: All right, leave this to me!

Lloyd: You sure you know what you're doing?

Zelos: I figured something like this might come up, so I found out how this
machine works.

Lloyd: ...Found out from who?

Zelos: Th...that doesn't really matter, now does it? Okay, here we go.

[Zelos shuts down the reactor]

Zelos: Well, that's that. How do you like me now, baby? You're even more
impressed now, aren't you?

Lloyd: Personality issues aside, I'm very impressed. I guess even you have your
uses sometimes.

Zelos: Lloyd, that was harsh, man....


!

Ah, Lost's Kate/Sawyer. I loved the chemistry these two had and I miss them being together.



Riff/Cain &hearts



Need I explain?

However, love UlquiHime. So poignant, and beautiful.

"Are you afraid of me, woman?"
"I'm not afraid."







"This here in my hand... is a heart?"


Edited at 2009-05-30 07:41 pm (UTC)

Re: !

My heart! It is broken.


What do you get when you pair a cute, happy angel who believes in the power of love above everything ever, with the hot-headed, grumpy king of demons who pretty much believes in nothing more than himself? The above image would imply tragedy, but IN MOST CASES you get instant fluff. Flonne brings out the good in Laharl, to the point where the final battle in Disgaea: Hour of Darkness happens solely because Laharl cares so much about Flonne.
Soooo voted for Roy/Marth (my favorite pairing of ALL TIMEEEE), though Wright/Edgeworth is going to be pretty hard to beat. -stares at numbers- Guh.

-is happy that at least one Pokemon pairing is winning-

And ICHIGO/ISHIDA.
-scrambles around for a pic-



^THIS. THISSSS. /o/ And rival pairings are so awesome. And their dynamic is so humerous. <3
But eh...I do like that KH threesome. A WORTHY PAIRING-ADVERSARY.

-is pleasantly surprised there is JD/Turk and not JD/Cox on the list-
While I do like both pairings, JD/Turk definitely wins out for me. :)

Mello/Near, but no Mello/Matt? or Light/L? Interesting...

/WANTS AZULA/ZUKO. But I did vote for Sokka/Toph (poooor Suki...)

Ino/Sakura! One of my favorite Naruto yuri pairings! And I'm also glad that Haruka/Michiru is still a favorite.

Link/Sheik...no Link/Zelda? Whatever, still voted for them.

-IS AMAZED THAT ONLY ONE TALES OF... PAIRING MADE IT-

Hehehe, Elizabeth/Darcy. A classical pairing.
This is just the first part of I think 3 Round 1 polls. You've still got some giants coming up including JD/Cox, many Potter and Buffy pairings etc. etc. As I said before, this is going to be the battle to end all battles. *g*
Can we get some more love for Count D and Leon up in here?? <33333

Photobucket
Fabulous art by Amarga, used w/o permission, but for a good cause!!

(I know, it's a small fandom up against FMA, so it's pretty much doomed, but I'm hoping PSoH can put up a good fight! *is resolved*)
They are certainly holding their own. We'll see how it all ends come Tuesday. *fingers crossed*
D: Sokka/Toph but no Sokka/Zuko?? That is a travesty. Come on, if you've seen the Boiling Rock eps you can't not love their interaction.

But SO MUCH WIN on SO MANY LEVELS.

VOTE FOR TOUYA/YUKITO OF CARDCAPTOR SAKURA. BECAUSE THEY ARE VERY CUTE AND VERY IN LOVE AND I SAIDED SO.

(Also, that Ichigo/Ishida picture totally made my LIFE. Thank you so much!)
Sorry no Sokka/Zuko submitted. Sokka/Suki, Sokka/Azula, and Sokka/Toph, but no Sokka/Zuko. I KNOW! I cry, too.
Vote for Nnoitra/Nel cause it's got this:

Photobucket

Photobucket

and this:

Photobucket

*baws*

UNF. I'm a fool for Bleach LOVE YOU AS YOU DIE pairings. Come to think of it NnoiNel and IchiIshi (!) and UlquiHime in this poll all had that going for them in recent canon. Nnoi saw Nel as he died, Ishi tried to save Ichi's humanity and was stabbed by him, Ulqui vanished grabbing for Hime's hand.

Kubo-sensei knows how to rip your heart out. Yeah, I voted for NoiNel. I can only imagine the sex because omg, what boobs and what a mfing tongue.

MUGEN/FUU

SHIT BRO, YOU KNOW YOU WANNA SHIP THE HELL OUT OF THESE TWO. Their dynamic is pretty awesome and there's more than enough evidence to support these two in the anime. Not to mention this:



Alright, now that that's out of the way, UlquiHime. :C So tragic. I am dearly hoping it makes it to the Final Four.
Alright, now that that's out of the way, UlquiHime. :C So tragic. I am dearly hoping it makes it to the Final Four.

That would be quite a feat but doable with proper pimping. *g*
