16 signs that you're more obsessed with your top than your own life

Before I go any further, OTP means your One True Pairing, a.k.a. your ultimate ship.

1. You thought “Pshhht my OTP is my life,” when you read that post title.

There’s no life without my OTP

2. You think about your OTP more than you’d like to admit.

Nah you guys go, I’ll just sit here and daydream about my two favourite people in the universe

3. You link everything in your everyday life back to your OTP.

OMG look at that patch of grass, guys! IT’S EXACTLY LIKE THE PATCH OF GRASS WHERE ANNABETH JUDO FLIPPED PERCY!!!! This patch of grass is sacred. NO ONE GO NEAR IT. ITS MIIIIINE. *pets grass*

4. Your friends worry about your wellbeing constantly.

*shakes head* They just don’t understand how beautiful my OTP is…

5. Then you decide that those friends suck and you dump them. You go and make new friends that share your same OTP passion instead.

Time to go find some people who can fully appreciate the beauty in this world, ugh

6. You compare your own relationships with your OTP to determine if he/she is ‘The One’.

And this is why you’re probably single

7. And you instantly dislike and judge anyone who doesn’t ship/ know your OTP.

There’s something wrong with you…seriously…

8. But it’s even worse when some CRITICISES your OTP.

I keep a handgun in my bag just incase any haters come a’hating. I suggest all y’all do the same.

9. But, we all know the worst is when your OTP break up.


10. Then you start getting real angry


11. And you start being pissed at everyone who dares to even look at you.

You say to everyone who looks at you funny.

12. But deep down inside you know that the writer is just playing with your feels.

We must have faith *sniffles*

13. And when they do get back together all is well again.


14. Then you find another OTP to fangirl over.


15. You want to just explode with joy.


16. And the cycle repeats…


Let’s Talk OTPs 

Anyone who knows me, knows my OTP is Percabeth. (Percy Jackson and Annabeth Chase from Percy Jackson series by Rick Riordan) Anyone who never knew that until just now, I’m sorry but you clearly don’t know me. Why do I say that? BECAUSE THIS OTP IS MY LIFE. You know me, you know Percabeth. And vice versa. Honestly, I think Percabeth has been my ship from the second I put down the first novel in the series, The Lightning Thief. The cheesy Mel likes to say it was “OTP at first sight” because that was my first ever OTP, and it has stayed as my no. 1 OTP to this very day. Percabeth is one of those most beautiful ships that are so freakishly swoon worthy and adorable, AND SLOW BURN, BABY! My no. 1 favourite relationship trope. Percabeth also contains my no. 2 fave relationship trope too. Hate to love. IT IS THE BESSSST.

As for my favourite TV OTP that honour goes to Bellarke of course (Bellamy and Clarke from CW’s The 100). Once again, it sorta has this hate to love thing going on. I mean, Clarke did not like Bellamy at all at the start for his attitude and way of doing things was simply horrid but YAY for character arcs and character building, for now Bellamy is like the only person Clarke can trust. They don’t love each other yet (heck, Bellarke hasn’t even had their first kiss) but THEY HUGGED!!! The slow burn is verrah sloooow but it totally gets you right in the feels. BELLARKE WILL HAPPEN. IT MUST.

So what about you? Who are your book and TV show OTPs?

  2. Hilary says:

    HAHAHAHA! That’s TOTALLY NOT ME. *slinks away in a dark corner to continue shipping my OTP*
    My ultimate book OTPs:
    1. Percabeth <333
    2. Harry and Voldemort (HA! I'm joking.)
    3. Ari and Dante because YES.
    4. Kestrel and Arin from Winner's Curse
    5. And probably a bunch more but I can't think of any right now.

    TV OTPs:
    Meredith and Derek from Grey's Anatomy.

    • Melanie says:

      Pfffft yeah, this is so not anyone. Who can be that crazy about their OTP? 😉 YES I love Ari and Dante and Kestrel and Arin! They’re bootiful couples. xD

      • Luna says:

        What did I just find? This is like heaven! I swear that you are the best person ever.
        My ships are
        Percy and Annabeth,
        Neville and Luna
        Ron and Cho (I know, bit strange)
        Harry and Katie (also a bit strange)
        Squaishey and Stampy
        #troylerforlife Troye and Tyler

      • Caitlin says:


    • Jord says:

      Meredith and Derek are goals but my main OTPs are Lexie/Jackson and Teddy/Henry

    • hannah says:

      omg i am instantly friends with you cause your tv otp is meredith and derek

  3. I don’t instantly dislike people who are not on my ship, but at the same time I don’t get why they don’t see it :p Like, when some people don’t ship Celaena/Chaol, HOW? The thing with this ship is that you never sure what’s going to happen, so I prepare for some painful situations and tears, haha.

    One of my favorites is Sybella/Beast from the His fair assassin series by Robin LaFevers, this OTP is in Dark Triumph. They are amazing together. So much respect and they complete each other.

    Cause if someone doesn’t like my OTP: Not mad, but get out of the room right now and may the door hit your ass when you walk away u.u
    My OTP right now is Emma and Julian from Lady Midnight. And the book isn’t out yet!! See?? As I was saying, I have a problem. And I’m happy. Oh yeah!

I do have quite a few couples that I ship, but I don’t know if any are my OTP. I do love Rose and Dimitri but I don’t know, I don’t feel as strong about them as you do about Percabeth. Which reminds me, I really must continue my Heroes of Olympus series…great post Mel!

    I was going to make a coherent comment and then I got distracted by aaaaalllll the .gifs!

    A friend of mine and I go through similar OTP phases, usually around the same time. Or I’ll say something like ‘OMG HAVE YOU WATCHED THIS THING?! YOU NEED TO WATCH THIS THING AND SQUEE WITH ME!’ or vice versa, and then we blame each other for being total enablers.

In Riordan's Norse series since the MC's last name is Chase — the same as Annabeth! But probably not so much…)

    I never got into the OTP thing until I watched The 100. Holy cannonballs, Bellamy and Clarke just turned my life around and showed me the light. Now, I pretty much google images of them regularly on tumblr BECAUSE THEY’RE JUST SO ADORABLE AND GAH ASDFGHJKL; They give me all the feels! I never thought I’d relate to this post if you asked me last year, but now I do. I really, really do. BELLARKE ALL THE WAY!

    But yeah, gotta love OTPs. The two main stars of Emma Approved are together in real life and I ship them so hard, it’s not even normal. Not to mention OTPs on TV shows and books–the list is TOO LONG.

    LOVE this post, though! 😀

  17. Irish says:

    I can definitely relate with this especially with 9 and 10! I rarely choose OTP that will NOT end up together, I want to avoid that heartache. However, I have experienced this lately with one of the Manga that I’m reading. The heroine choose the second guy! But I was shipping her with the first guy. You can’t imagine the heartbreak I went through that ending. It broke my heart to million pieces and until now, whenever I hear news about the first guy, I can’t help but feel sad about it.

  20. OTPs ARE my life! It’s why I hate love triangles SO much, because no one better get in the way of my ship, damn it!

    “You compare your own relationships with your OTP to determine if he/she is ‘The One’.”

    I have a very bad feeling that this will be a problem for me in the future. D:

    My OTPs? Oh dear. Any of Melina Marchetta’s couples, but mostly Jonah/Taylor. Tarver/Lilac. Josh/Skylar most recently. I have too many to name. I can’t help it! I get so attached!
    Danielle @ Love at First Page recently posted…I’ll Meet You There Blog Tour: Guest Post + Giveaway!My Profile

  21. PERCABETHHHHH <3 <3 <3 Definitely my OTP too. Those two are the BEST depiction of real teenage love. Their relatkonship is so real it's almost unbearable. If anyone knowshowtowrite teenage relationships, it's RickRiordan. Iloce themm.
    Caitlin (Books and Window Seats) recently posted…I love a good romance….mostlyMy Profile

  22. Ah, Bellarke! Bellarke is new to me, last season I was pretty “meh” about them, but now? I need it to happen. Like, tomorrow, perhaps? (We all know this is not going to happen tomorrow. Or probably until at LEAST the season finale. But probably longer.)

    I get really into OTPs too, mainly because I want one myself! I have always been a hopeless romantic, and OTPs get me through the day 😉 My all time, #1, no question is Katniss and Peeta. But there are so many others, it would take me way too long to list them all! I am planning a posts about my favorite couples on Friday though, so I guess I should really get my list better organized!

    Also, these gifs are perfection and truth.

  23. OMG THIS IS 1000% CORRECT AND YOUR GIF USAGE HAD ME LAUGHING ALL OVER THE PLACE. *applauds wildly* I have too many OTPs. Well, pfft, there’s never too many, but I feel like I ship most people equally. Except for Chaol and Celaena from Throne of Glass. I ship them most awfully and the fact that they’re broken up makes me screech. I JUST WANT TO SHIP ALL THE SHIPS, OKAY??!
    Cait @ Paper Fury recently posted…Fairest by Marissa Meyer Is A Deliciously Villainous PrequelMy Profile

  24. You nailed it with this post. This is a 100% accurate description of me.
    I ship soooo many couples:
    -Percabeth (still haven’t read BoO because I’m not ready for the series to end)
    -Day and June from Legend
    -Arin and Kestral from The Winner’s Curse
    -Ed and Winry from Fullmetal Alchemist
    -Roy and Riza from Fullmetal Alchemist
    -Adelina and Enzo from The Young ELites
    -Kat and Hale from Heist Society
    -Zach and Cammie from Gallagher Girls
    -Meghan and Ash from The Iron Fey series
    Soooo many OTPs! Just thinking about them puts a massive grin on my face!

    PERCABETH IS MY OTP TOO. This is why we are friendssssss. lol jk, there’s also our love of MLP. WHO SAYS IT’S BIZARRE. lol. actually, i don’t even know if you still like MLP? ahahaha just giving you crap.
    BUT let’s get back to Percabeth….I do daydream about them…like, will I ever find my percy? which is kind of weird, since I’m 28. but whatever. you know what I mean, yo. OTP at first sight! LOVE THAT. I want to re-read the entire series (again) after reading Blood of Olympus I feel bereft…but I need to read other books…so it’s SO hard…
    oh and I love the gifs you used in this post, they made me smile. 😀

  26. I don’t think I have found that one OTP for me yet. There are plenty I ship, but no OTP…I know, I’m sad 🙁 I WANNA KNOW WHAT IT’S LIKE TO BREATHE THE FANDOM waaaah. I will keep searching! 😛

    OMG Percabeth is my OTP too! And I knew I was more obsessed with my otp than with my life as soon as in the title image I saw that sketch of Percy and Annabeth and just leaped up in joy (metaphorically;))! It’s so nice to meet someone with the same OTP and someone who just gets how perfectly Rick Riordan built up their beautiful, hilarious, moving and just right relationship:) I want a Percy Jackson! He’s always on the top of my book boyfriends list because he’s so kind, funny, smart and Percy in every way!
    And it’s so hard to deal with anyone criticizing the Percy Jackson series- it’s like a literal shot to the heart:P
    They are the best slow-burn, friends to more than friends- basically everything that could be romance!
    LOVE this post Melanie!;)

    I only just read started reading Percy Jackson, so I’m not a Percabeth shipper (yet- please don’t shoot me.) My first ever OTP that I can remember was Liz/Max from the Roswell High books (this makes me feel really old, but since I didn’t read them until I was like 13, I feel a little better about that, ha.) Think they were my first TV show ship too, weirdly. Then I think it was Veronica/Logan (and now in book form too.) And then Romitri, haven’t watched the VA movie (and kind of don’t plan to form what I’ve heard) but I think my current book OTP (and still obsessing over) is CHAOL AENA. TV show, Once Upon a Time because Captain Swan, and I’ve just started The 100, so totally starting to ship Bellarke too. Haven’t gotten to that hug yet, so I have that to look forward too. 😉 But indeed, IT MUST HAPPEN.

    Haha–I laughed so hard reading this post. I definitely have my ships but I don’t know if i’m full on OTP-ing??? (can I call it that?) LOL, quiet yet. I ship hardcore ship a certain ToG couple. Like HARDCORE. So maybe i’m on my way??

    Yes, Percy and Annabeth are the best OTP but they have always been. They are meant to be together and I love them both so much. I’m still hesitant to watch the 100 because I got ruined a certain death and it just makes me anxious. I feel like I would be on the edge of my seat all throughout the show.

I invest when I am reading then move on. I have to admit though. I was that way with Twilight Bella and Edward. Don’t judge. It was the first real romance driven book I had read and I was like um 30’s. So yea never been much of a romantic. Do love your post though!

    First I must say, I enjoyed this post more then I should have because I’ve been on the roller-coaster of feelings oh so many times. There is nothing simple about being a fan. Being a fan is so much more then just liking something; I don’t thinking some people understand this. In my family I’m the huge fangirl of so many things and have been seen crying, laughing and more feelings over books, T.V. shows and movies more times then I can count but other then a character dying your; favorite couple splitting could be the hardest thing! I hate is when it happens. When you see them together but there not to together it’s heart breaking! Thank you so much for this post as it reminds me that even thought I’m the only one in my house, I’m not the only one in the world! xox

    Bellarke! I could ship those two until the cows come home. My ultimate book ship is both Arin and Kestral or Celaena and Chaol. Of course Percy and Annabeth, that just goes without saying. I only watch a few shows on TV, The 100 being one and The Walking Dead. Daryl and Carol are my ultimate ship. They’ve been dancing around each other for five seasons now, come on! It’s a zombie apocalypse, characters are being killed off left, right and center, how about giving the fans a little love here.

    I just realised, I think The Walking Dead might be my fandom. That counts, right?

  46. Haha, first of all I love this post so much! It’s the best!

    And Percabeth! Nothing beats Percy and Annabeth. I remember reading the end of Last Olympian (when they get thrown in the lake) at least a dozen times when I first read the book because… Swoon!

    I have to say though, that my number one OTP has to be Ronan and Adam from the Raven Cycle, technically they aren’t together but there are hints! TV show wise, I have to say either Felicity and Oliver from Arrow or Stefan and Caroline from Vampire Diaries!

    Great post melon! haha! My OTPs are Leia and Han Solo (Star Wars), Quinn and Puck (Glee), Eugene and Rapunzel (Tangled) and Edward and Winry (FMA). Yes I have many. I think Percabeth is great also! xxx

  48. Oh my, this post is everything! I don’t dislike people who don’t ship my ship but I do wonder just why don’t they do. Argh.

    My first ever TV show OTP was Chair was Gossip Girl and I still love them but my always and forever OTP will be Bellarke from The 100. *high five* The slowest of burns and damn, I’m hooked! The ship is my life.

    As for books, Pynch from The Raven Cycle is my OTP and I’ve declared 2015 to be the year of Pynch because I want them to kiss so bad. I’ll go sit in a corner now.

  49. Loved this post Mel!I agree with every single point!
    My OTP is Adrian and Sydney from Bloodlines.I am utterly obsessed with them to the point where my phone password is often hacked by my friends as they’ve all guessed that it will be Sydrian.

    And,that other day while I was in my school computer lab,a worker delivered a package to the teacher who was not in the lab at that time.So he just left the parcel on the table,and I soon noticed that the parcel was from Sydney and someone called Adrian has sent it.
    As soon as I saw it I started to fangirl and begged the teacher to give me the mail cover to take home while my friends were sitting next to me with their heads in their hands.

It is one of my favorite series. The first book is kind of slow because they are introducing every information on the gargoyles. The other books have more action and romance. I hope you like it!

    YES TO THIS POST!!! I’m currently reading the second to last book in the Skulduggery Pleasant series by Derek Landy and I am completely obsessed with it and I started playing a song I liked and I started immediately thinking about this one character’s relationship with the other character and then I started getting all teary-eyed. I’m basically relating everything I see and hear to that series at the moment haha! ;D

    And YES, Percabeth is utter perfection!!!

  55. PERCABETH YES. I love them. They’re too adorable. This post is all kinds of amazing. And I’m going through #9 right now thanks to Arrow… you have no idea how much I’m suffering. I love this post <3

  58. Bellamy and Clarke’s relationship is very interesting. I haven’t seen the last couple of episodes, because I’ve been busy, but I think they would make a cute couple 🙂 I think Twitter would explode if they ever kissed haha.
    My favorite TV OTP though would have to be Emma and Hook from Once Upon a Time! THEY ARE SO CUTE AND I LOVE HOOK!!

    OTPs are EVERYTHING to me. It’s almost sad, actually, how much time I devote to my OTPs. I have no regrets though. ;D And all of these things are true, too. My friends laugh at how much I love these fictional relationships, but they know it’s just my “thing.” It pleases me that they understand these things, and a few of them even relate!

    So, my ultimate OTPs are as follows:
    1. Destiel (Dean/Castiel from Supernatural)
    2. Pynch (Ronan/Adam from The Raven Cycle)
    3. Gallavich (Mickey/Ian from Shameless)
    4. LoVe (Logan/Veronica from Veronica Mars)

    Seriously. If you want to get me emotionally riled up, just bring any of these 4 ships up, particularly the first 2. I become a mess, an absolute mess.

    Awesome post! I completely related, and you had me laughing. (Honestly, any chance I get to talk about my OTPs is a good chance.)
    Sydney recently posted…Tales of a BooksellerMy Profile

  60. I can relate to all of these because I am a Percabeth shipper too and because when I ship, I ship hard. Right now, I am obsessed with a few Korean dramas and by obsessed, I mean doing research online to check if my OTPs are dating in real life or just how close they are in real life. And I download gazillions of wallpapers to use on my laptop, tablet and phone. I have stopped questioning my behavior and just embraced the fact that shipping makes me very, very happy. Anyone who tells me that I’m crazy earns a death glare from me.

    Excuse this lame comment but I don’t really know how to follow up with that awesomeness… like best post ever, Mel! I just finished Throne of Glass & Crown of Midnight so CELAENA AND CHAOL are at the top of my mind and I’ve never shipped a pair so hard as I do them. They’re just so perfect and I – UGH. And Bluesey of course and Rose and Dimitri. Annnndddd that’s it. I don’t honestly have that many OTPs bc very few pairs actually get me to have that intense feeling for them.

  62. Emily says:

    my shipping methods are extremely complicated, so i have too many otps that i can handle, and yet i love all of them the same. i noticed that percabeth is your top priority, but along with them i ship frazel and caleo. i watch way too many tv shows, anime, and read too many books and become obsessed with them and thus my otp list grows. have you ever watched once upon a time? that show has me shipping left and right, constantly changing ships. first emma’s with graham, oh look at that, he’s dead. then we flashback to emma with neal and they are so adorable!!! but wait, it appears that hook is in love with emma. gahhh!! this show is so frustrating!! i’m just in a hard place right now. i started watching psych on netflix 2 weeks ago and i just finished it yesterday and it’s hard to cope with the emptiness inside. speaking of which, i ship shules (shawn and juliet from psych) so hard it hurts!!

  63. Nirvana says:

    OTP as in One True Pairing?

    NOPE. I THINK IT SHOULD BE INFINITY TRUE PAIRINGS. I ship way too many people for my own good xD PERCABETH IS LIFE. Totally shipped it the moment where it all began with Annabeth saying “You drool when you sleep”

    Gaahhh saghfdsahkla <3

    I know this is kind of late, but I thought I’d share.

    Ash and Misty. They’re from pokemon, if you don’t know. Also, Jessie and James. Also from Pokemon.

    Kohaku and Chihiro. They’re from a movie called ‘Spirited Away’.

    Sheeta and Pazu. They’re from ‘Castle in the Sky’, a movie made by the same studio as ‘Spirited Away’.

    Sherlock and John.

    Akane and Ranma. From a manga called ‘Ranma 1/2’.

    Tomoe Ame and Usagi. From a comic called ‘Usagi Yo Jimbo’.

    So, yeah.

    How has no one here mentioned the OTP to end all OTPs, Elsanna? Has no one else here seen Frozen?

    Okay, now that that’s somewhat out of my system(EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE I CAN’T STOP FANGIRLING), these ALL apply to me. Like, I can never have a gf who isn’t into this again. XD I NEED CHOCOLATE NOW!!!

  68. Alex says:

    That was WAY too accurate

    Phan is my OTP Phan is ma Lyfe

    Lovely and 1000000% accurate piece. I loved this!!!

  69. C says:

    Solangelo is my ultimate OTP. Then it’s Percabeth, then Fax (Maximum Ride).

  70. Jani'ce says:

    Okay, so I can’t believe no one has mentioned this but my ultimate OTP *drumroll please*


    I swear on everything their romance made my head explode! I was soo happy when the finally got together and it couldn’t have been more PERFECT and OMG OMG OMG OMG AHSHXJXHXBRHHFNEDHBRNCJKDICJNE

    phew….kay I’m done.

  71. Jani'ce says:

    Oh, and how could I forget my beloved Aang & Katara from ATLA. I cried over that series finale for weeks. Mostly because I knew I had nothing better to do with my life….so I went back to the first episode of the first season and took the ride all over again! *sigh*
    Ok, no I’m really done

  73. Buse says:

    My OTP is Jessick ( The Walking Dead) I guess.. Everybody finds that weird, but I think its lovely. I hope Kirkman wouldn’t kill Jessie..

  74. Chris Cannon says:

    I just found this blog. I’m obviously late to the party, but I love it.

  75. Fangirl TO THE EXTREME says:

    My one OTP is a creepypasta/Slenderverse thing:


  76. Modiru Girun says:

    My true OTP is Papyrus x Sans. I don’t read too many books or watch too many shows/movies, but I also ship Elsanna and Pearl x Amethyst (but Amedot is slowly winning over)

    • That Undertale Shipper says:

      Um, not to be rude or anything, but why do you ship Papyrus and Sans? I mean, they ARE brothers. I can get that you ship them platonically though.

  77. Haya says:

    I have never met anyone before who also ships Blarke. Percabeth is, and always will be, my no. 1 OTP. After that it’s definitely Blarke, Wessa, Olicity, Malec, Clagnus, …. I could go on FOREVER.

  78. J says:

    SO RELATABLE man. I just read this and I was like, damn… I need to get a life – oh wait my OTP IS my life – hah.

    The sad thing is that I never get to have #13… My ships don’t just sink, they crash and burn. Curse my attraction to (love)-hate relationships.

    My OTPs? A lot of them are actually from anime :p also once I say it I just start spasming and I’ll probably write a load of rubbish about it in the comment box and make a fool of myself so I probably shouldn’t

    (trying to exercise self-control here)

  79. Lili-Rose says:

    My OTP are:
    – Destiel (Dean and Castiel from Supernatural)

    – Klamille (Klaus and Camille from The Originals, MY LIFE IS RUINED!)

    -Lexie X Jackson (GA)
    -JohnDave (Homestuck)
    -Tenry (GA)
    -Malec (TMI)
    -Rosemary (Homestuck)

    I literally obsess over every OTP I have and me and my friends exchange our different OTPs and since a lot of mine are weird (Mikasa X Hanji from AOT for example) we get in a lot of fights.

    • Dawnfire5212 says:

      Oml frEAKING JOHNDAVE AND ROSEMARY ARE MY LIFEEEE HAAAA okay I’m glad SOMEONE finally mentioned Homestuck (lol I’m a few years too late but I honestly don’t even care).

    • Colleen says:

      Lexie and mark😭😭😭💔R.I.P

    • Nicole says:

      Looking back on this post with my list of otps, I have to change something. Instead of McGee/Abby(I only see them as friends now), I’d replace them with Jim and Pam on The Office + Dwight and Angela too.

      • Nicole says:

        Also scratch off the couples on the Big Bang theory. I actually hate that show now. I also forgot Lily and Marshall from HIMYM and Eric and Donna on that 70s show too. (Sorry if I keep changing, but I keep adding and changing otps)

        • Nicole says:

          And taking off Meredith and Derek too. I’m so wishy-washy. lol. Does anyone else have this problem where they change their minds about some otps?

          • Nicole says:

            I’m also scratching off Eric and Donna now too. Seriously though, why do I keep changing my mind on otps?!? lol

            • Nicole says:

              I think I figured my list out. I am just making a new one because I was very wishy-washy about what couples I shipped but I now know who my otps are. I wish I could delete this thread I made. lol

  88. Anonymous says:

    Omg yes. This is the whole Steven Universe fandom. Ever heard of Garnet? Yeah. She’s basically a personified version of my OTP. It’s canon. It’s also spoiler-y, though.

  103. Emma J Richardson *AKA Fangirl Of All Rick Riordan Books* says:

    Oh my Gosh, that is totally me! I have so many OTPs BTW. Adrienette, Ladynoir, Marichat & Ladrien from Miraculous
    Percabeth, Solangelo, Jasper, Frazel, Thaluke, Caleo & Brason, Tysa, Melon,Gruniper from Percy Jackson/Heroes Of Olympus
    FierroChase/Beatrice, Gallery, Samirr, Rick & Blitzstone from Magnus Chase Gods Of Asgard
    Salt/Sabis & Zarter from The Kane Chronicles
    Some might wonder why i have fierrochase/beatrice but a true magnus chase and the gods of olympus fangirl/boy will most likely know why. Some asked rick riordan what alex and magnus’ ship should be and he said “How about Beatrice? That’s a lovely name.”
    Also, just wanted to say this. The 3rd book in the Magnus Chase series is The Ship Of The Dead right? At first I thought it was because of Loki’s ship, Nagelfar but then realized it was because of this. We all know Magnus and Alex would be a great couple right? So they would be ship right? Also, they are dead so it is literally, A Ship Of The Dead.
    And (i know, my comment is super long) I put rick in the part about magnus chase gods of olympus. Thats because of Jack and Riptide.
    If you have any questions about my other ships then just ask me.
