Shipping Meme

Many of you have already done this meme, and I apologize. But I've been really busy lately, and reaaaalllly wanted to do this one. Snagged from kilodalton, jessicaqueen and who_in_whoville.

1. Think of up to 30 ships you support (20 wasn’t enough for me!).
2. List them using descriptions of the characters involved rather than their names.
3. Have your f-list guess as many of the ships as they can.

Not all of the ships I chose are listed on my user profile page. Also note this is only a fraction of the ships I love. Yes, I need help.
1. The typical love story: boy meets girl. Girl turns out to be an escaped convict; boy has daddy issues. Girl has fling with another boy. Boy and girl finally hook up and are engaged to be married when daddy issues flare up again. Boy and girl play the will they/won’t they game up til the boy dies. The End?
Jack and Kate from Lost

 2. She took care of his three kids for him, and his way of thanking her was to tell her he loved her and then immediately take it back. Good thing this girl has chutzpah. She finally wins her man, and the two get married and have twins.
Fran and Maxwell from The Nanny
3. They start out as boss/employee then slowly evolve into a deep, unbreakable friendship. Everybody else thinks they’re an item but it’s not until she’s leaving for another country that he figures out he’s in love with her.
Daniel and Betty from Ugly Betty
4. With just a touch of her hand and a single word, he led her to safety and changed the course of her average existence. She taught him how to live again, how to open up and trust people, and in exchange he gave her the universe…and his life.
Nine and Rose from Doctor Who
5. They have scalding hot chemistry, and they would do anything to protect each other. But he’s been undead for 150 years and she’s dating his brother. So that makes things awkward, to say the least.
Damon and Elena from Vampire Diaries
6. He was her dream. He taught her how to live, how to fight and how to love. But like all dreams, he faded away. But the gods were kind, and after saving the world twice, it only seemed fair she should end up with the one who first saved her.
Tidus and Yuna from FFX and FFX-2
7. She’s always had a thing for his type, but his lack of personal hygiene and lack of morals really gets to her, not to mention that fiancé she has waiting for her. But despite their differences and the odds against them, they are drawn to each other for one inescapable reason: curiosity.
Jack and Elizabeth from POTC
8. Their first date was perfect. She didn’t want to marry him until he no longer did. They broke up for a very stupid reason but then eloped in one of the oddest locations imaginable. They now have an ickle kid, and are so cute it hurts.
Angela and Hodgins from Bones
9. He’s known her since she was born, so they grow up thinking of each other as brother and sister…until a series of mishaps and misunderstandings forces them to face their true feelings for each other.
Emma and Mr. Knightly from Emma
10. They’re drawn together by their love of literature, music and pop culture, but his lousy attitude pulls them apart. A surprise visit several years later reveals that he still holds a torch for her, but is it too late?
Jess and Rory from Gilmore Girls
11. He waited for her for a really, really, REALLY long time, and when she finally noticed him, she realized he was the most beautiful person she had ever met.
Rory and Amy from Doctor Who
12. They’ve been the best of friends since they were kids. She’s his voice of reason; he’s her reason she breaks the rules. And even though they don’t end up together, they’ve shared “charged,” intimate moments that totally trump “monsters in the chest.”
Harry and Hermione from Harry Potter
13. He’s an ill-tempered, teenaged misfit. She’s an ill-tempered, ancient god. They’ve saved each other’s lives so many times they’ve lost count, but who’s keeping track (besides them)?
14. She promised him forever, but fate pulled them apart. If only he had found the courage to say how he truly felt before it was too late…
Ten and Rose from Doctor Who
15. They both appear to be on the same side of the law, but he’s got a secret agenda (and a secret lover), and she’s got some baggage to sort out. But who said love had to have a fairy tale ending? Oh wait…
Emma and Graham from Once Upon a Time
16. She was running away from an abusive childhood. He was escaping from a loveless marriage to a crazed wife. Through trials, tears and tragedies, they finally found each other, and their love for each other set them free.
Jane Eyre and Edward Rochester from Jane Eyre
17. Like Romeo and Juliet, these two started on opposite sides in a bizarre war. But circumstances beyond their control (e.g. disappearing islands and time travel) brought them together. And not even death could separate them.
Sawyer and Juliet from Lost
18. They’re friendly coworkers and they might even be a little sweet on each other, but it’s not until an old man in a box sweeps them off to adventures unknown that they realize just how much they mean to each other…and how much they miss home.
Ian and Barbara from Doctor Who
19. He first found her crazy and irritating, and she found him surly and unapproachable, but they grew to be close friends and each other’s confidantes. After years of everybody else seeing it, they realized there was something more between them, but an illegitimate kid and a persistent ex almost ruined their chance for happiness.
Luke and Lorelai from Gilmore Girls
20. She’s damaged goods, seeking revenge on her mother’s killer. He’s just…deranged (and ruggedly handsome). Together they balance out each other’s weaknesses and encourage each other’s strengths...and solve murders. If only she’ll admit her feelings for him!
Castle and Beckett from Castle
21. He was her Angel. She was his one shot at redemption. Together they made beautiful music. But he had to pay the price for his life, and he ended up watching her sail off with another.
Erik and Christine from The Phantom of the Opera and/or Phantom by Susan Kay
22. They’ve known each other their whole lives, but she’s always been too busy hitting on his best friend to notice how much he loves her. After the best friend runs off seeking revenge, they’re left to find him and bring him home, and it’s as they search for the friend that she realizes just what a remarkable guy was standing beside her all along.
23. He can give her everything she wants: love, family, someone to grow old with. Plus, he’s not afraid to say how he feels. Cue snogging.
Ten II and Rose from Doctor Who
24. He’s “twice her age,” not even “good looking,” and an insufferable jerk. She’s a gorgeous angel of mercy with a secretive past that he’s just dying to know more about. Despite the fact that things are so “sexually charged” between them, she ends up married to someone else and he starts macking on the woman in the slutty skirts. Chemistry wasted. *le sigh*
House and Cameron from House
25. He’s running from an insane father that wants to rule the world and, uh, the law since he’s now a criminal. She’s running from the government that wants her dead. He teaches her that revenge is not the answer, and she teaches him to take responsibility for his actions. They’re better people together, but with their diametrically opposed lives can they stay together?
Balthier and Ashe from FFXII
26. They perfected the “will they/won’t they” chemistry. Despite sultry looks, plenty of hugs and hand holding and near kisses, before they can officially “hook up,” her husband returns from the dead, and she slips out of his life forever.
27. When he first hits on her when she’s big and pregnant it seems a bit creepy, but it soon becomes apparent that he really cares for her. He even dies for her. Twice. And despite her baby-daddy issues, she grows to love him, too.
Charlie and Claire from Lost
28. They are a true testament that you shouldn’t judge a person based solely on first impressions. True, he is a bit arrogant and she is a bit outspoken, but they bring out the best in each other. They even defy local conventions and familial obligations to be together.
Elizabeth Bennett and Mr. Darcy from Pride and Prejudice
29. She’s rational, no-nonsense and an atheist. He’s emotional, impulsive and a Catholic. Add these two opposites together, and you get pure chemistry.
Booth and Brennan from Bones
30. The first time they meet, she’s got her lips all over him. And yeah, he’s got way too much baggage (plus that immortality issue), and yeah, she really wants to get married and he would never settle down, but their chemistry is sizzling hot. And they’re so cute together! Don’t knock the crack pairings!

1 Jack and Kate (Lost) (not gonna hold that against you, Sawyer/Kate fan here!)

2. Fran and Max (The Nanny)

Bit late, so several of the ones I know have already been guessed. But still.

7. Jack/Elizabeth from Pirates of the Caribbean?
8. I'm only up to the start of Season 4 of Bones, so I've got no idea if the later stuff is true, but the first bit sounds like Angela/Hodgins
9. Sounds like Emma Woodhouse/George Knightley from Jane Austen's Emma

18. I think, from what little I know of Classic Who, that this is Ian/Barbara from Doctor Who
