the best ships are the ones who aren’t originally written to be together
they develop on their own, they get their stories beyond each other, it’s never about them-as-couple as it is about them-as-people
and then the story itself evolves until these characters make so much sense, they’ve come to life together in ways that no one could have expected, and suddenly there’s no option but for them to be together
not because of a script or a plot but because of pure chemistry and character development and the natural forces that create real-world relationships too. love isn’t scripted.
