By today's societal standards, Ashley, your dream could come true without Whit being thirty years younger. People do that in everincreasing numbers nowadays. \:D/

Amy. ;) I liked them for a little while too, until she disappeared....

Connie and Rodney, eh??? That's an interesting ship.

What about the most obvious of all? It has been right in front of everyone this whole time...

Buck/Emily

Sure, everyone expects Matthew to marry Emily. They are childhood friends after all. But Matthew will probably grow up to be a world famous inventor and be more focused on that. Even now he sounds like a hopeless NON romantic.

But SPOILER ALERT:


Buck is back in town, and trying to make everything right. He is attempting to be nice to everyone, which means his friendships around Odyssey will only grow.

Or, if Emily doesn't work out, Buck/Olivia would be interesting. Especially since the ship-mix-up name would be BOLIVIA.

So, yeah. Give it 30 years or so of AIO, and Buck will have married Emily or Olivia.

Of course, if he marries Olivia, her name will be Olivia Oliver...

Is it bad that I have a bit of a soft spot for Buck/Olivia? They've never even met in canon, but my love for a similar concept for a pairing from another show has given me the idea.

What show?

I really have a thing for Kai and Jinora from Legend of Korra. She's smart, reserved, sensible, and a daddy's girl; he's a street orphan and a thief who ends up joining the Krew after a change of heart (there's more to it than that, but it would be spoilers and I know you were thinking about watching the show). Obviously Olivia and Buck are different from Kai and Jinora, but the "good girl falls for reforming and atoning ex-bad boy" trope might be common to both, depending on in what direction Buck's character development goes.

Also, CT, Buck and Jules could be referred to as Bules. (Pronounced "bulls," one could even spell it as such, making it one of the few relationship names that is actually a word.)

I don't know, I'm kind of shipping Jules/Buck. Emily around Buck is just annoying. Though I can totally see Olivia/Buck.

(BTW, Tigershadow, is LOK good? I've seen ATLA, and am thinking about starting it.)

Is it bad that they've never interacted and yet Olivia/Buck is becoming one of my favorite ships?

YES. 300000000x YES. It's very different from A:tLA, though, just to forewarn you. It's much more serialized and plot-driven and it definitely pulls no punches in terms of "mature" themes; to put it in a non-spoilery way, some rather...unpleasant things happen to the characters, both good and evil. Korra is also a very different character from Aang, and her story reflects that; her journey is more about finding balance within herself and learning what being the Avatar really means, while Aang's was all about bringing balance because he was the Avatar. (Personally, I find Korra to be much realer as a character because of it, but that's just me. =/)

Additionally, I should warn you that Book One might feel a bit too neatly wrapped up, but that's because originally, those first twelve episodes were all we were supposed to get. Book Two, and then later Books Three and Four, weren't greenlit until after production for Book One was well underway. Book Two also had some issues, both with writing and with animation, and Korra's behavior may seem annoying at first, but there are very good reasons and she gets better. I say these things not to give you a pessimistic view from the start, but just to give you some context.

...Anyway, back to AIO shipping. If I spend more time enthusing about LoK, I'll write a three-page long essay, probably.

High five, bro. They're totally meant for each other. \:D/ However, I like the sound of "Whonnie" much better. :)

Anyway, the idea of "Bules", as TOJ calls it, is really growing on me. It'd certainly be much better than Emily and Buck (And believe me, that's not just because I hate Emily. The truth is, they have no chemistry, and Jules and Buck sort of do).

You people are totally weird. I agree with almost none of them Bules is the only one.
