Ship Tease: Fanfiction

Stories with their own page

Cross Over
  • In the Megas XLR and Touhou crossover Fantasy of Utter Ridiculousness, there is a shiptease between Jamie and Patchouli. In the credits Koakuma has to slap Jamie to make him stop hitting on her.
  • In Kyon Big Damn Hero, Kyon has had Ship Tease with every female character he's not related to. And one of his cousins, though that's one-sided. To be fair, though, he has that in canon, too.
  • The Bridge: The author noted that he did not intend for any romance, but after the fans picked up on the subtext and commented on it, he decided to expand a bit on it.
    • Godzilla Jr. has had a lot with Princess Luna (he gave her flowers for Hearts and Hooves Day, but thought they were for eating) and Blade Dancer, though it's stymied by his ignorance about romance.
    • Blade Dancer then starts having it with Junior's brother Xenilla.
    • Aria Blaze has some with Monster X of all people. His Super-Powered Evil Side Kaizer Ghidorah briefly mistakes her for Monster X's late wife.
    • Anguirus has some with Ki Seong.
  • There are subtle hints of ship tease between Fluttershy and Shamrock in Ace Combat The Equestrian War.
  • Shinji And Warhammer 40 K of course has Shinji/everyone teases, though Rei gets the largest chunk of moments in her favour. Asuka/Kaworu got a lot of teasing too (including kissing) before Kaworu revealed himself as an evil bastard.
  • Evangelion 303: There was plenty teasing, mainly between Shinji and Asuka in the earlier chapters (such like Shinji staring at her bottom when she wore tight short pants or Asuka making excuses for sleeping in her bed) and between Rei and Kaworu later.
  • Thousand Shinji: There were some Shinji/Rei and Shinji/Misato hints, but ninety percent of the teasing was Shinji/Asuka as soon as Asuka's first appearance (sooner, actually. Shinji was scanning the ship mentally, and when he found her mind burning with passion he was instantly drawn to it. And when they met he thought "So this is what lust feels like"). Teasing in that chapter included Shinji and Asuka sneaking peeks at each other when they were undressing and Shinji wondering if he could romance that wounded, hot-tempered red-haired berserker.
  • Fate Stay Night: Ultimate Master has some ship tease between Ben and his Servant Avenger, very much in the same way as Shirou and Saber have in the original source material. Examples include both acting like a Battle Couple, Ben being clearly stunned by how beautiful she looks and Avenger insisting on sleeping in the same bed as him for better security measures.
  • My Little Castlevania has dropped hints of Rainbow Dash/Shatterstorm and Applejack/Soarin'.
  • Child of the Storm has a lot of this, possibly, in part, thanks to its Trolling Creator.
  • The Equestrian Wind Mage: While primarily shipping Luna and Vaati, with some side flirtation between Rarity and Maulgrim, readers have also picked up hints of attraction between Twilight and Nigellas (though Word of God is that that last one was unintentional).

  • In the fanfic based off Help Me! Dr. Hazama! called Disaster Piece Theatre, there is quite a lot with Ragna and Noel. It is also heavily implied that there would be a fanfic that would delve more into it.

My Little Pony: Friendship Is Magic


  • In Forward, there are a number of scenes that tease River/Jayne. The author does, however, twist these around quite a bit, and one of the most tense moments between the two is ruined by a realization that psychic mind-manipulation was involved.

Final Fantasy

Haruhi Suzumiya
  • The writer of You Got HaruhiRolled! has some fun with this.
    • He is believed to be the first person to ship Fujiwara/Kuyou, and has since turned it into a Running Gag that the pairing is very much one-sided. Chapter 84 is devoted to the Anti-SOS Brigade and deliberately has a lot of moments where Kuyou is affectionate towards Fujiwara. Fujiwara, who regards Kuyou as an Abhorrent Admirer at best and a rapist at worst, promptly Breaks The Fourth Wall and implores the author to stop it.
    • He has also parodied the concept when Kyon becomes a pervert and starts propositioning every female character in the show, as well as some of the men. They all give him a slap in the face.

Tengen Toppa Gurren Lagann

  • Imperfect Metamorphosis has no explicit pairings whatsoever, but loves to drop hints regarding popular fandom pairings such as Marisa/Alice, Yukari/Yuyuko, Kaguya/Mokou, and Yuuka/Wriggle. There is also something developing between Rumia and Rin Satsuki, though what exactly is difficult to determine given the general Mind Screw nature of their relationship.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles
  • The TMNT stories written by author Zarius tease the fanon pairings of Donatello/Irma and Leonardo/Lotus, and tries it's luck at a unique pairing by hinting at April/Michelangelo.

  • Fallen King has Ryou and Tea, but in a twisted way as he uses it against her and her friends.

  • In The Kobold Necromancer's fic TDWT: Reducks Redux, pretty much everything that's been published so far has been dedicated to this trope. Five chapters in we have: Ezekiel/Bridgette, Ezekiel/Izzy, Ezekiel/Lindsay, Courtney/Duncan/Gwen, Gwen/Tyler, Harold/Bridgette, Harold/Lindsay, Cody/Sierra and Noah/Katie. Also Alejandro/Leshawna, Bridgette and girls in general, but that's sort of his schtick anyway.
  • Equestrylvania drops hints of Rainbow Dash/Shatterstorm and Applejack/Soarin'.
  • Despair's Last Resort is filled with this, as the author wanted to keep all relationships ambiguous. The ones that are hinted at the most are Ayame/Hikaru, Shigeru/Naomi, Satoshi/Takara, Masaru/Takara, one-sided Kazumi/Shizuka, and Shuuya/Miyako. It's also hinted that Shizuka was involved with someone during their year at Hope's Peak from the 78th Class, but she can't remember if she was in love with him or if they were close friends.
  • The last scene of "Solaere ssiun Hnaifv'daenn" has some banter between Jaleh Khoroushi and Tovan tr'Khev about whether or not them having dinner together in his quarters counts as a date. After he suggests trying out a new holodrama, Jaleh decides that would be a date.
