Top 5 Wednesday: Favorite Non-Canon Ships

Posted October 19, 2016 by Rowena in Features | 12 Comments


Top 5 Wednesday was created by Lainey at Ginger Reads Lainey but is hosted by Sam at Thoughts on Tomes. You can read more about this meme on the Goodreads Group here.

This weeks topic is: Favorite Non-Canon Ships

These are the couples you love, but they never got together in canon (canon meaning: what actually happened in the text). Or that did get together, but weren’t together in the end of the series. Or a couple you ship but it’s actually impossible for them to be together because they are from different worlds, franchises, etc. Let your shipper heart run wild. I know mine will.

So…I’ve decided that I’m going to cheat this week and do TV Ships instead of Book Ships since I read romance and the ship is pretty set in stone in every book. Ha!

1. Bamon (Bonnie Bennett and Damon Salvatore) from Vampire Diaries.

It’s been a couple of seasons of me shipping these two. I haven’t been a fan of Elena’s in such a long time that I don’t remember what season it was that I stopped shipping her with either of the Salvatore brothers. It’s been that many seasons. These two started the series off hating each other’s guts. A few seasons ago, they still hated each other but they got stuck together and they learned to lean on each other to stave off loneliness and homesickness. They were protective of each other once they found the bad guy stuck in that Hell with them and in Season 6 when Bonnie sent Damon home without her, Damon was the only person back at home who never gave up on finding a way to get Bonnie back.

This hug in the gif above is the hug that cemented my love for these two. I want them to happen dammit but ugh, Damon’s one true love is supposed to be Elena so the odds of this happening are slim. Boo.

2. McKono (Steve McGarrett and Kono Kalakaua) from Hawaii 5-0.

I’ve never watched Hawaii 5-0 as it was going on. This is one of the few shows that I binge watch every summer. Ever since the first episode, I’ve wanted McKono to happen. Sure, I like Adam (Kono’s man) and I adore Catherine (Steve’s woman) but that doesn’t stop me from wanting my ship to have a chance.

I keep coming up with how they can come together and my latest thread is…something bad happens to Adam in jail, like..he dies and Steve wants to be there for Kono and with him grieving over Catherine’s shenanigans, they come together in grief and heartache but grow together in love. Haha, I need to cut it out. I don’t even care that Steve is Kono’s boss. That makes me want them together even more. My friend Grace (who got me on to this show) does not support my ship. Boo.

3. Sylveride (Sylvie Brett and Kelly Severide) from Chicago Fire.

We got a quick tease of these two in the early days of the show but they’ve gone away from them because Sylvie got with Cruise and Cruise and Severide are friends and well, bros and before hoes and all that. I wasn’t a fan of Cruise and Sylvie and I’m even bigger non-fan of Sylveride not getting their chance. They brought a new girl on to the show to be Severide’s love interest and I’m not a fan of that either. I hear that Sylvie is getting a new love cross-show love interest and while I’m curious about them, I still want her to end up with Severide. Plus, she was supposed to hook up with Jimmy and I guess that’s out too. Gah.

I don’t want a lot of things but I do want my ships to shine so make that happen, Chicago Fire writers. Pretty please. 🙂

4. Solijah (Sophie Devereaux and Elijah Mikaelson) from The Originals.

When The Originals first started, I wanted Sophie and Elijah to get together so stinkin’ bad. I have a thing when watching TV shows where I pair up the people that I want to get together and I wanted these two. The set up was perfect. When they first meet, they hate each other’s guts. They don’t trust each other and they were always trying to stay one step ahead of each other. I wanted their strong hate for each other to turn into a love that made Elijah forget about Haley, haha. The writers sure showed me, huh?

That ship didn’t even last a full season…and I’m still not over it. *sob*

5. Tom and Rachel (I don’t know their ship name) from The Last Ship.

Oh, Tom and Rachel. I was so invested in these two in my binge watch of The Last Ship. I was the freaking Captain of the Tom and Rachel Ship. I couldn’t watch the episodes fast enough because I needed more Tom and Rachel (and Danny and Kara) goodness. I didn’t even know how they would make a relationship with them work since he was married but that didn’t stop me from shipping them hard. Then there was no more wife and my hopes soared and then the season 3 finale happened and…I’m still not over any of it.

I haven’t recovered from the shock of what happened and the nail in my love coffin. Damn writers for playing with my emotions like that.

What ships do you support that are just…not going to happen or hasn’t happened yet and things aren’t looking good for them?

  1. You, my dear, watch WAAAAAAAY too much tele (bwahahahaha!!!). I’m just teasing!!!

    Btw, what ever happened with the guy from Chicago Fire and Lady Gaga??? They were getting married and now they’re not o.O They were so cute together!!!! Yeah, yeah, I could look it up but then I’d end up on some porn site or with a virus from pop-ups. Scary stuff, those entertainment sites!!!!

      Girl, I hear that all the time but I don’t even care. I love my shows. All of them. Ha! Maybe I need to get a life.

      I have no idea what happened with Taylor Kinney and Lady Gaga, they did make an awesome couple and I was sad when they broke up but I never heard an official story for why they broke up. Sorry dude.

      Hey Kim!

      Ooh, well if you like bad Damon you should tune in this season because he’s the bad guy again. The rest of the gang are trying to save him because he’s ripper Damon. Yay!

      I quit Originals for good a few months ago, during the last season. I just couldn’t get behind anything though I did watch one of those cheesy Hallmark movies because I saw that Jackson was in it. Ha!

  2. I’m so glad TVD only has one season left. I’m pretty much over it, but I can’t quit it as long as it’s on. lol. I like B & as only friends though. I’m all about her and Enzo. I’m still behind on the Originals.

    • Rowena

      Yeah, TVD is a show I couldn’t quit either. I love Stefan too much. Did you ship Stelena or Steroline? I’m so Steroline trash, it’s not even funny.

      I do like Bonnie and Enzo but I want to see Bonnie and Damon happen…mostly to shove Elena out of the way completely. Ha!

    • Rowena

      Yeah, it’s not looking good for Bonnie and Damon but that doesn’t stop me from hoping. It’s the last season before the show ends so I’ve got my fingers, eyes and toes crossed that this happens.

      Thanks for stopping by Nereyda!

  3. Love this post. I am the worst for shipping non-canon ships yet none of these are my ships (I am intrigued by McKono though because damn that would be good. Sadly, I love Adam and Kono so bad so it would also feel like betrayal). I think most of my non-canon ships tend to be the really obvious ones, like Lizzington on The Blacklist and stuff like that. I mean I think I’m to easily led to my ships. They are so fun to ship though aren’t they and getting sucked into fandom is awesome.

    • Rowena

      Hey Becky! Welcome!

      Thanks. That’s why I need Adam to die (haha, I’m so bad) so that Kono and Steve can happen without all of the betrayal stuff. Catherine doesn’t need to die because Steve moving on is what she gets!

      You should see my Tumblr, as soon as fall hits and my shows come back is when I’m the most active on Tumblr. I reblog the same scene from my ships over and over again. Being a part of the fandoms rock!
