Day 21 - Favourite ship.

Today was going to be one of the easiest ones to do, as there simply wasn't a choice. I say 'was', until a certain person (who shall remain nameless but knows who she is) asked yesterday if I was going to use a canon or fandom ship. And with that question I stopped short and realised that really this meme is out TV and thus it should really be a canon ship.

So back to the proverbial drawing board because even though my favourite ship is as canon as it is possible to be canon without actually being canon *g*, I decided I would go with a canon ship. I also decided to rule out any ship from NCIS (even though it would have been used until 'someone' asked the question) as I have used the show quite a bit and will be using it again.

Thus, I went with Buffy/Angel.

What can I say about them? They are the ultimate doomed couple. The vampire slayer and the vampire and not only that, but a vampire who has a soul but will lose it again should he ever experience a moment of true happiness. And he does experience that moment, when he and Buffy make love and he does lose his soul only to get it back again at the second Buffy sends him to hell to save the world. He returns; only to finally walk away from Buffy because he loves her that much.

Poignant, full of pathos, the couple who loved but couldn't afford to love. Meant to be enemies who turned into lovers, both physically and emotionally. Even thinking about them and what they could never have moves me and makes me sniffle a little. I know, soppy fool.

As Giles says in 'Out Of Mind, Out Of Sight', when Angel does to see him: A vampire in love with a Slayer. It's rather poetic . . . in a maudlin sort of way.

That really says it all.
