Rip It or Ship It [Book Tag]

On this relaxing Sunday, I should be finishing the last of my schoolwork for this session since I’ve been so busy with NaNoWriMo, yet here I am doing a book tag that I wasn’t tagged for.

Besides, we could all use a little break now and then. And books tags are always fun and motivating and give me a chance to reminiscence on old reads of mine. (I also needed something to wake me up because I was about to fall asleep at my desk because schoolwork is BORING.)

If you don’t know how this tag works, here are the rules (or at least, how I’ll be doing it):

❥ Choose a few books that you have read (I’ll be choosing six)

❥ Write down a select few of the characters names from each book and place the names in a jar or bowl

❥ Randomly select two names and decide if you would rip or ship their relationship

❥ LET THE RIPPING AND SHIPPING BEGIN

RIP IT OR SHIP IT

Etienne St. Clair (Anna and the French Kiss) + Tris Prior (Divergent)

A: RIP IT

BECAUSE ST. CLAIR IS MINE OBVIOUSLY.

*fans self*

Okay but really, St. Clair and Tris would never connect, not even as friends. Tris is serious and somewhat stoic, whereas St. Clair is silly and flirty and doesn’t mind being the center of attention. They’re basically polar opposites, in my opinion. And in this case, I don’t think opposites would attract.

BUT I’M STILL SHIPPING MYSELF WITH ST. CLAIR AND THINK WE WOULD BE A GREAT COUPLE TBH.

❥ Sevro (Red Rising) + Margo Spiegelman (Paper Towns)

A: SHIP IT

Here me out on this one. If you know Sevro, he is a crazy little thing. He’s deadly and wild like the beast he dresses up as. He is fearless and willing to do whatever will work best for him (and his team).

Margo is also a crazy little thing in her own way. She is rambunctious and free-spirited, flying wherever the wind carries her. So maybe she doesn’t kill people, but if it came down to it, she probably could.

I don’t know. I think this could be a cute coupling. Perhaps a little wild. But NOT like the Joker and Harley Quinn. Because abuse is NEVER EVER cute or acceptable.

❥ Peter Hayes (Divergent) + Quentin Jacobsen (Paper Towns)

A: RIP IT

I mean, do I even need to explain? Peter is a jerk and Quentin is a little cinnamon roll. They are opposites in every way. They would never work as friends, let alone a couple.

❥ Julie Cabernet (Warm Bodies) + Ben Starling (Paper Towns)

A: RIP IT

I personally found Ben annoying and obnoxious, and I’m quite sure Julie would feel the same. Though, Julie can be goofy and forward in her own ways, so I suppose they could be friends, but certainly not a couple.

❥ Darrow (Red Rising) + Peter Pan (Tiger Lily)

A: RIP IT

One of them would probably end up killing each other within seconds so …

❥ Tiger Lily (Tiger Lily) + Mustang (Red Rising)

A: SHIP IT

Talk about power couple. Tiger Lily has persevered through abuse and heartache. She has made many mistakes and committed selfish acts along the way–as we all have–but she ends up doing the right thing in the end. She keeps her head high and fights for what she loves.

Just like Mustang. The girl who was ruthless in doing what she needed to do. A girl who is incredibly smart and plans her each and every move. And yet, she still has a soft core of goodness.

These two would be such an incredible couple and now I want it to be a thing.

❥ Wendy Darling (Tiger Lily) + Nora (Warm Bodies)

A: RIP IT

Nora would most likely shove Wendy out of a window because she would find her way too soft and annoying and a burden through the apocalypse (or Neverland). So a BIG no.

❥ Anna Oliphant (Anna and the French Kiss) + Tobias Eaton (Divergent)

A: RIP IT

I think Anna would find Tobias too serious and brooding for a boyfriend, and I don’t think Tobias would take Anna seriously (which is wrong). I could perhaps see them being casual friends, but nothing more.

❥ R (Warm Bodies) + Josh Wasserstein (Anna and the French Kiss)

A: SHIP IT

This one might seem strange, but if you think about it, it makes perfect sense.

Josh is a complete nerd whose dream is to be a graphic novelist. (Is that a thing? I’m making it a thing.) It’s all he strives for. What he dedicates his life to.

R is a ZOMBIE. Josh would have a character stencil for his comics before his very eyes. Not only that, but both boys are smart and thoughtful and real. I think they would bond within minutes (if Josh doesn’t mind hanging around zombies) and be an adorable couple.

Someone write this fan fiction, please.

  1. Awww, thanks for the tag!! 😂 I LOVE THIS. And like omg I can totally see Sevro and Margo!? Like that is actual perfection right there. And I’m pretty sure Margo would be able to handle the fact that Sevro is 10000% INSANE so that’s nice. And I was about to say “I really can’t see Tobias and Tris with anyone else ever”…but you knoooooow. I think someone really light and fluffy and happy could get on well with Tobias and bring out his softer side? I’M JUST GIONG TO SAY TOBIAS AND LUNA LOVEGOOD AND HAVE NO REGRETS.

    • Thank you so much, Cait! I’m glad I’m not alone on that one because now I am FOREVER shipping Sevro and Margo.
      I can’t either! But I also thought the same thing–someone soft could be good for one of them. But certainly not St. Clair because he is MINE.
