This Ship Sails Itself – [Bri] Geeks Out

Your One True Pairing. The fictional couple that potentially makes you weep…or embroils you in epic internet debates. You don’t care if they’re canon or not. You’re captain of that ship, and you’re willing to go down with it.

Some of you might be utterly baffled. What is an OTP? Well, you take one of your favorite characters and pair them with another character. Then you turn into a puddle while thinking about the romantic hijinks they would probably get into. If/when your OTP becomes canon (that is, acknowledged and confirmed by the person who creates official stories for the characters)…then you can proudly proclaim “this ship sails itself.

I, sadly, don’t have an OTP…but I totally love geeking out over other people’s OTPs and finding out why they enjoy pairing certain characters together. Members of the Educating [Geeks] crew were kind enough to share their OTPs for this [Geek] Out, read on to find out which characters make their hearts go wub wub wub.
