* Many ''Webcomic/{{Gaia}}'' fans started shipping the thief Viviana and Ilias due to the fact that she kept conning him, much to his chagrin. It only intensified after their dynamic set into a friendly one as she [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2012/11/30/shadowdancers-067/ pretended to be his fiancee]] for [[UndercoverAsLovers a heist]] and [[http://www.sandraandwoo.com/gaia/2013/03/26/shadowdancers-092/ gave him a kiss]].

* In the ''SomethingPositive'' fandom, Davan/Pee-Jee continues to be one of most popular ships, despite being repeatedly [[ShipSinking sunk]] by [[WordOfGod the author]]. (His own opinion is that they could never work, but that and any amount fan appeals are trumped up the real-life woman who he based Pee-Jee on insisting that he didn't.) It doesn't help matters that the majority of their canon love interests are either [[{{JerkAss}} jerks]], insane, or [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs insane jerks]] and given R.K. Milholland's [[TrollingCreator fondness for twitting the more annoying members of his fanbase]] (as he sees them) and his general lack of concern for collateral damage among the remainder, it's not terribly surprising that the Davan/[=PeeJee=] ship sails on.

** The OneTrueThreesome of Tedd/Grace/Sarah was also popular enough to get [[http://www.egscomics.com/index.php?id=2201 acknowledged]] in a [[FourthWallMailSlot Q&A strip]].

* John/Dave is probably the most popular ship in the ''Webcomic/{{Homestuck}}'' fandom. To give an example: Archive of Our Own has, as of February 2014, ''2500'' fan fics with that pairing despite being sunk over two years prior to that date with the [[InternetBackdraft still somewhat infamous]] "i am not a homosexual" quote, ''1000'' above the second leading couple (Rose/Kanaya, which, by the way, ''is canon'').

** It also helps that, due to the sheer number of different alternate timelines, Hussie has officially declared that "every ship is canon".

* In ''Webcomic/CheckPlease'' the fandom for Jack/Eric is a juggernaut compared to the others. For an idea, on the AO3 site, about 70% of the fics are about them. As of the end of the second year, [[spoiler: They are also an OfficialCouple]]

** It's often hard to tell when this is going on in Homestuck as there is a very high amount of ShipTease and relatively few actual {{Official Couple}}s. However, there's a pretty straightforward example with the post-scratch kids - Jane/Jake is clearly being worked towards, but Dirk/Jake (which was canon anyway) and Roxy/Jane are much more popular.

* ''WebComic/EerieCuties'': Even though Layla is [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/boys canonically straight]], fans wanted to believe she was either bisexual, or in denial, in hopes of seeing her pair up with either Brooke, or Tiffany. Of course, now that Tiff's officially made it clear that she and Layla [[http://www.magickchicks.com/strips-mc/when_there_are_more_boys_around are just friends]], they're hoping there's still a chance of Layla getting together with Brooke. Even it it means [[spoiler: Layla being taken over by Lamia's persona and [[http://www.eeriecuties.com/strips-ec/a_close_circle enthralling Brooke to make it happen]]]].

** Eridan/Sollux has the most fanfictions on A03 of any ship not including one of the kids, despite the fact that they tried to kill each other at least once.
