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, since she's All-Loving Hero - she can be tender with whoever she wants.
  • Any time Nella and The Chick are on screen together. (Apart from when the Chick is treating Nella like her personal Butt Monkey - so, maybe a third of the time.)
    • Ditto Linkara and Marzgurl. Kickassia takes this to extremes.
    • Before it was made "canon" via "Spooning With Spoony" and "Linking Up With Linkara", Spoony and The Nostalgia Critic had a lot of this as well.
    • The Critic and The Chick do this a lot as well, only it's more Belligerent Sexual Tension (like most Critic pairings) coupled with The Masochism Tango, and their hideously awkward date couldn't completely sink it. In Kickassia he makes her vice president and she immediately starts trying to kill him.
      • Also, in the Chick's "11 Embarrassing Nostalgic Dance Crazes", the Chick mentions a date that Nella set her up on. Flashback to the Chick and the Critic on an awkward date.
      • In his Kickassia commentary, Doug says that calling her "Mrs. Vice-President" was a mistake but he couldn't be bothered to edit it out. So yay happy accidents!
    • Not so much anymore, but there was always a little bit of this with Critic's crossovers with the Nerd, especially with the term "Nerd-on-Critic action" being thrown around. Best described on their Foe Yay section.
    • And then there's Critic/Lupa in Suburban Knights. Even lampshaded by the commentaries as playing to the fem!dom lovers in the fandom.
      • It also takes a moment to tease Lupa with Angry Joe, who finds Lupa in Snow White cosplay sporting a leather jacket and wielding a semiautomatic to be extremely hot.
  • 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...
  • In We Are Our Avatars, Mega Man and Luca's respective players have been having a little too much fun with this recently. According to Word of God(s), though, it's doubtful anything serious will come out of it.
    • And before that, there was 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.
    • Quite a bit earlier, it was just avoided with Brian and Windy. Though Windy and Were Hare may be another story...
    • "Raven" and Fred seem to be going this route, whether or not it'll come to fruition is another story.
    • Roachey and Violet at one point(planned), then later on, Mara and Roachey.
    • "Raven" and Aya seem to have gone this route recently.
    • Hakumen and Tsubaki also have their moments.
    • Mana and Axl, a bit.
  • Deadly Mistakes, a roleplay which revolves around the children of characters who (randomly) got other characters pregnant on a certain meme, has a lot of these:
    • 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 as well.
      • 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.
    • 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 also seem to get along fairly well, despite the slight Furry Confusion.
    • There is some between Ted and Delta, though until recently it seemed to be awfully one-sided on poor Ted's part. (It still is, but now there's been a slight hint that she might like him as well.)
  • 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.
    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 saves Jaune's life despite barely knowing him, and later becomes his mentor, unlocking his magical ability with a spoken vow that sounds vaguely romantic. Technically, this shows her compassionate nature, but you can see why people ship them. Also not helping matters is the fact that she actively seeks him out during the initiation to be his partner, despite having only spoken to him once before.
    • Ozpin and Glynda are nearly always seen together and constantly act like the students' 'parents'. In Episode 1, the glance between them resembles that of an old married couple. When the staff was asked by fans what their relationship really is, the staff joked that they "share a toothbrush" and avoided answering the question.
    • In volume 2, Neptune successfully flirted with Weiss note . Later, she tried to partner with him when their teams went on a mission.
