Hancock: Say Luffy, tell me about your crewmates.
Luffy: Well, which one of them should I start with? Zoro, Sanji, Usopp, Brook, Franky, Nami, Robin...
Hancock: Nami? Robin? There are girls?! -Imagine Spot-

Hancock: Why?! Why, Luffy?!
"I'm fascinated by the "shippers". Utterly fascinated by that. They will take the tiniest clue — the tiniest smile between two characters — and see that as evidence for something."
— David Slack on the subject of Beast Boy/Raven shippers.
Joey: I hate you, Kaiba!
Kaiba: And I despise you, Wheeler.
Fangirl interpretation: They must be in wuv.
"Yes! Misunderstanding! That's precisely it!" Twilight agreed with a prim nod. "You have all of these romantic notions, and then you find a way to interpret even the most innocent of interactions as evidence justifying a non-existent relationship! It can be endearing, sometimes, but it's also risky!"
"It's...okay to pretend, I guess, but honestly, Rarity, please don't jump to conclusions," Twilight pleaded weakly. "At least, not unless something actually happens.

"Ooh ooh ooh ooh ooh
People are talkin', talkin' about people
I hear them whisper, you won't believe it (Ah ha)
They think we're lovers kept under covers (Ooh hoo)

(A little too loud)
Stand just a little too close
Stare just a little too long
Maybe they're seein', somethin' we don't darlin'"
—Bonnie Raitt, "Something to Talk About"

Can't help it, I just think that they would make such a good pair,
In canon they have never metó
I don't care, I ship it. I don't care.
I know that they are siblings but I think there's something more
If she weren't dating that guy, they'd be banging, I am sure.
The third scene in episode four, come on, look at him stare.
Twincest can't really be that bad
