Ship Tease: Web Original

  • Chapter 21 of Broken Saints features a tender moment between Shandala and Oran that can be interpreted this way, although it also has a platonic skew as well, since... well, she's an All-Loving Hero - she can be tender with whoever she wants.
  • That Guy with the Glasses:
  • Draco and Hermione get a lot during A Very Potter Musical. He has a crush on her but she hooks up with Ron. Then A Very Potter Sequel, which is set one year later, has a ton for Hermione and Ron, showing how they ended up hooking up.
  • Dana and Tom sure do look cuddly in The Stinger of Echo Chamber's "Trope Of The Week" Unresolved Sexual Tension...
  • We Are Our Avatars:
    • Mega Man and Luca's respective players have a little too much fun with this.
    • Michael and Melody, with the Shipper on Deck and She Is Not My Girlfriend (and, inversely, He Is Not My Boyfriend) moments.
    • A!Rika/Catherine was teased a bit, though Word of God says that she only did it for the lulz. She later admitted that she wasn't really trying anymore.
    • "Raven" and Fred might go this route, whether or not it'll come to fruition is another story.
    • Roachey and Violet was planned at one point, then later on, Mara and Roachey.
    • "Raven" and Aya seem to go this route.
    • Hakumen and Tsubaki have their moments.
    • Mana and Axl, a bit.
  • Deadly Mistakes:
    • There was a brief one-sided bout of this towards the beginning with Dusk Boogie and his long-time childhood friend, Piper Cheeks. The two later became the first Official Couple.
    • Kyle Macleod and Ellen "Newt" Ripley Junior had a lot of this, which later led to them becoming the second Official Couple.
    • Yuuka Kralie and Xavier Draven have tons of Unresolved Sexual Tension.
    • Despite only starting off as a slight joke in another thread, Thaddeus Blackstone Granger and Charity "Jezebel" Smurf-Helmet have quite a bit of this.
    • Before Thaddeus showed up, there was a little of this between Jezebel and Wilson Wilson. It didn't work due to the latter being Oblivious to Love and his roleplayer is not into Shipping.
    • There's a significant amount of Ho Yay going on between Rowan Inspector-Matthews and Kainashi Namine. Especially since the latter isn't completely fond of anyone else in the group.
    • Before Kainashi showed up, there was some slight one-sided ship-teasing (or something like that) between Rowan and Wilson. That obviously didn't work out, and one particular part killed the idea completely.
    • Despite Dorian's roleplayer saying that she wouldn't ship him with anyone and Susan Xian's roleplayer's major disinterest in Shipping at all (yes; Wilson's roleplayer is also Susan's), the two characters have a few moments that could be interpreted as this.
    • Madigan Hightop and Bernard "Bernie" Stewart have a little of this since the latter seems to like her the most out of everyone else. Though neither roleplayer had thought about shipping them with anyone at first since Madigan is twelve and Bernie is fourteen.
    • Mathew and Fawn seem to have developed a few possible feelings for each other despite not knowing each other for too long.
    • Cass Hackwrench and Augustin seem to get along fairly well, despite the slight Furry Confusion.
    • There is some between Ted and Delta, though it seemed to be awfully one-sided on poor Ted's part.
  • The War Comms has this all over the place. Zacharias/Esmeralda, Kristan/Morgan, Alyssia/Hannah, Missy/Trisha, Missy/Esmeralda, Syrius has it with three different people (Molly, Julia and Ralph), Janet/Alyssia...
  • Due to Noob having a couple of more or less official couples (one of which only lasted about a season) for a little more than twenty characters, many pairs that seem a little closer to each other than to the rest of their circle come off as this. Also, the fact that one of the characters is a Yaoi Fangirl who keeps picturing two of the male characters together makes same-sex shipping feel less of a leap than in most series.
  • RWBY:
    • Nora is attracted to Ren, and the two have a very close friendship. Characters have confused the nature of their relationship, but Nora has even tried to convince herself they're Just Friends. Nora's Image Song clarifies that she's completely freaked out by the realisation that she's fallen for her best friend.
    Nora: We've been friends for soooooooo long! What are the odds we'd still be together? Well, not "together-together"... Not that I'm not saying that you're not handsome; you are handsome, but that'd just be weird, right?
    • Pyrrha was eager to get to know Jaune from the moment they met, saves his life despite barely knowing him, and quickly becomes his mentor, unlocking his Aura with an intimate gesture. She's willing to give Jaune' relationship advice over Weiss even though it hurts her to do so, something Nora takes note of. Several songs have been written that cover Pyrrha's feelings for Jaune.
    • Ozpin and Glynda are always together and act like 'parents' to their students. Even at the dance, they gravitate towards each other and remain quietly off to one side together even though the teachers are allowed to have fun as well as the students. In Episode 1, the glance they share over Ruby's antics resembles that of an old married couple. When Ironwood doesn't know if Ozpin can be trusted, Glynda's faith in Ozpin is immediate and unwavering. When asked by fans what their relationship really is, the staff joked that they "share a toothbrush" and avoided answering the question.
    • Ironwood and Glynda's first scene together has her sarcastically and mockingly rebuff his effusive and suggestive greeting to her and she openly disapproves of his gung-ho, militaristic approach to dealing with any problem. However, she also thinks he has a very good heart and is the first to offer genuinely warm support when he's troubled. When Glynda's voice actress was asked what their relationship really is, she joked they probably just need to get laid.
    • Sun keeps pursuing Blake despite her constant rebuffals. He seems genuinely interested in her well-being and warns Neptune not to do or say anything that'll ruin his chances with her.
    • Neptune and Weiss are interested in each other. Weiss tries to arrange the scouting groups so that she's paired up with Neptune, and asks him to accompany her to the dance. He only turns her down because he can't dance, but once he gets over that, he jumps at the chance to spend time with her.
    • Dance, Dance, Infiltration is devoted to ship tease. Pyrrha is pining over Jaune, who is pining over Weiss. Jaune gives Neptune advice over Weiss and officially lets her go in favour of spending the dance with Pyrrha. Blake dances with Sun; Ren and Nora spend all evening dancing with each other. Jaune and Ruby's awkward punch bowl moment cuts straight to Ozpin and Glynda standing off to one side together. Ironwood pursues Glynda for a dance, but she only agrees after seeking, and receiving, silent permission from Ozpin. At the end of the episode, Cinder dances intimately with Mercury.
  • In The Zombie Knight, Hector seems to act more shy than usual around Lynn, and Queen Helen comments to Lynn about her and Hector making a cute couple, although she states that she was joking and shouldn't let it influence her either way.
  • In Worm, Taylor initially interprets Brian's kindness towards her as attraction - which Brian is quick to refute when she brings it up. They try dating several chapters later, though, and actually manage to make it work pretty well until... well, the below occurs.
  • Happy Tree Friends has some between Flippy and Flaky, mainly from Flippy's side. She's the only animal he doesn't kill in two of his Split Personality-induced rampages, and her screams are what snaps him out of a third one. Furthermore, he seems more resistant to said split personality when she's nearby in "Party Animal".
