* ''Fanfic/ChildOfTheStorm'' has Loki and Sif, who seem to be blind to how into each other they are (particularly the guilt-riddden Loki), while EveryoneCanSeeIt and pretty much everyone (particularly Fanral for some reason) is a ShipperOnDeck). It gets to the point where [[spoiler: part of Harry's plot critical letter from the future is an irritable exhortation to his uncle to open his damn eyes.]] As of the time of writing, there's no sign if it will be victorious or not, but it seems to be getting that way.
