Shipper On Deck / Real Life

  • Peter Lorre convinced Humphrey Bogart to marry Lauren Bacall.
  • Happens from time to time. Especially if one has a Childhood Friend and an Annoying Younger Sibling, or if you happen to find a pair of people that are obviously Star-Crossed Lovers.
  • Happens with Rooster Teeth quite a bit... by the fandom, no less, and this has actually been lampshaded quite a bit by the staff themselves.
  • Often the topic in teachers' lounges at school.
    • And behind coworkers' backs at all manner of places of employment.
  • Who hasn't secretly (or not so secretly) tried to nudge a close friend towards someone? It's practically a rite of passage, especially among teenage girls, to meddle in your best friend's love life.
