Abandoned Ships
« on: November 24, 2015, 05:52:54 PM »
Is there any ships that you used to love but now don't? This could be either found out they were related, found a different ship that better etc.

For me, a long time ago I shipped Mousefur x Runningwind. I noticed that they were together a lot, and was wondering why no one else seemed to ship them. They weren't over the top obvious, but they seemed to have chemistry to me, and I wasn't the type to ship everyone x everyone. Then eventually I found out they were brother and sister, and I then I was pretty much: ABORT MISSION  D:

I can't remember if I shipped Whitestorm and Bluestar it would have been the same problem I'm not too into the obvious incest shippings, my line for warriors is if they are first generation related, or if they themselves acknowledge it imo.

At the beginning I also shipped Dustpelt/Sandstorm, but eventually the plot got in the way for that.

I was not a fan of Bramblestar/Squirrelflight, so at first I welcomed Ashfur/Squirrelflight with open arms. To me, it seemed better than the alternative. Then Ashfur went downhill from there and decided maybe it's not the best idea after all. I think this is about the time when he actually threatened Squirrelflight's adopted kits. Like wtf man. Rejection hurts, but gdi Ashfur, was that really necessary?

So what's yours?

Crowpaw x Feathertail and subsequently Crowfeather x Leafpool

I thought forbidden romances were the coolest until I realized that it's actually a really dumb practice

I really supported Bluestar and Oakheart until I read Bluestar's prophecy. That book pretty much killed it by revealing that they barely even had a relationship, they just had some belligerent sexual tension and a one night stand.

This is my reaction to a lot of the popular shippings in Warriors, honestly. So many of the popular ships are these... one-night-stands that result in kits and are hardly touched upon afterwards. Bluestar and Oakheart, Crowfeather and Leafpool, Dovewing and Tigerheart, ect.. they're all just flings that got so popular, but they really aren't much more than some built up tension.. and I wouldn't be surprised if Dovewing and Tigerheart produces kits as well.

The game is on again- a lover or a friend?
A big thing or a small, the winner takes it all.

Oh, man. I think I was guilty of Bluestar/Whitestorm for a while. Oops.

I don't have a lot of abandoned ships because I don't have many warriors ships to begin with, but there were some pairings in the early books of DotC that I was maybe kind of rooting for that eventually got wrecked ;(

I think I used to ship Bluestar and Tigerclaw/star until the special edition came out and revealed that age difference..and I definitely shipped Firestar and Spottedleaf for the longest time.

I really supported Bluestar and Oakheart until I read Bluestar's prophecy. That book pretty much killed it by revealing that they barely even had a relationship, they just had some belligerent sexual tension and a one night stand.

hmm...I think that the fandom collectively gravitated towards those ships since they were very angst-ridden, punctuated with strong (if brief) emotions, and left a lot of room for exploration in fanfics and the like. It also probably speaks to the main age group that the books attract - it's much easier for younger teens to relate to themes like this over themes that come up in long-term relationships.

When I was younger, BlackstarxRussetfur was my OTP, and now I don't feel much about it. Like, I can still ship it? It just doesn't compel me the way it did before.. guess my taste has changed

Honestly Bluestar/Oakheart train is something I'm on as well. I love them still but after reading Bluestar's book I am very very behind Crookedstar and Bluestar. Idk they just had such an amazing friendship and seemed to care about each other a ton? That might be borderline crack ship for me though lol, I just feel like they would have had a lot more of actual chemistry since they both had to give up a lot to get to leadership and also they both had a lot of influence from the afterlife. While Oak/Blue felt a little forced.

I had a hard time remembering what I used to ship but I recall Graystripe/Fireheart and Graystripe/Silverstream being favorites that I'm no longer a fan of -- I'm not even quite sure why, but it may be because Graystripe turned out to be a rather boring character to me after a while..

Not sure if this counts as necro, I'm so sorry if so-

For some reason when I was younger I shipped Whitewing and Jayfeather? Now I'm kind of creeped out by that pairing, lol...

If a thread's on the first page of a board I'd say it doesn't count as necro even if the topic's pretty old personally. ^_^ (also welcome to the forums omg--)

Crack ships are pretty common in the warriors fandom tbh, finding non-problematic ships is night on impossible. I know I used to ship stuff but I can't even remember what pairs anymore, I just kinda sorta don't ship anything anymore?

Why are Cinderheart/Lionblaze called Rewindshipping?  It's a cool name, I'm just curious about its origins.

And is there a ship name for Leafstar/Billystorm?
