What if slash shippers ruled the world?



5) Blair and Jo, The Facts of Life

If the internet had been around in the ‘80s, Rachel and Quinn would have had some competition for most mooned-over subtext. Every lesbian I know over the age of 30 shipped Blair and Jo before shipping was even a thing. In fact, most of them wrote Blair/Jo fanfic in their Trapper Keepers.

6) Aria and Spencer, Pretty Little Liars

Yes, it’s true — you can’t not ship Spencer with whomever she’s standing beside. But she and Aria are the real deal. For real. Maybe it’s their shared love of Scooby Snacks or how they spend half their lives sleuthing in the Mystery Machine or maybe it’s just the way they look at each other. It’s the way spies look at each other — when they’re in love.

7) Buffy and Faith, Buffy the Vampire Slayer

What do you call it when you stab a girl instead of kissing her? Unresolved sexual tension. Which is always more dangerous when both women carry stakes in their back pockets. 

8) Anne Shirley and Diana, Anne of Green Gables

Anne Shirley: “A bosom friend — an intimate friend, you know — a really kindred spirit to whom I can confide my inmost soul. I’ve dreamed of meeting her all my life. I never really supposed I would, but so many of my loveliest dreams have come true all at once that perhaps this one will too. Do you think it’s possible?”

Marilla: “Diana Barry lives at Orchard Slope and she’s about your age.”

9) Serena and Blair, Gossip Girl

If I had a quarter for every time I’ve shouted at Blair and Serena to just kiss already, I would be rich enough to takeover Chuck Bass’ empire. And, I mean, it’s totally canon. They absolutely made out in the Gossip Girl books.

10) Rose and Blanche, Golden Girls

The Golden Girls was ahead of its time in a bazillon ways, and in retrospect, there’s so much lesbian subtext flying around — especially between Rose and Blanche — that it’s ridiculous I missed it the first time. I was only a child, but still. There’s nothing these two couldn’t solve with a cuddle and a cheesecake.

If slash shippers ruled the world, what would be your dream come true?
