I meant to start this meme on Feb. 1st - but as usual, the days got away from me. So I'm going to start tonight and just take it as it goes. But I will try my level best to post everyday - because I'm OCD and I hate skipping days on a meme.

Er, so here's Day 1.

Day 01 - What is your current favourite ship?

Sometimes I think it’s going to be my one and only for the rest of my life, my forever ship. I can’t even really explain why, either. Most of the ships I’ve had in the past have either been impossible, next-to-impossible, or more along the lines of Spike/Buffy or Wesley/Lilah, the love/hate energy.

Cordelia and Angel snuck up on me. Their entire relationship, it seemed, grew naturally out of the narrative without the writers intending it to. I think that's why it worked so beautifully, it was woven into the plot without being the point of it.

You can pretty much tell when the writers noticed what they had and zeroed in on it - we started getting words like kyrumption and moira. Even so, Angel and Cordelia survived it, and the shitstorm of s4. Their love story remained intact, and ultimately tragic, because it became secondary to all the forces swirling around and against them. And it's quite simply the most beautiful love story ever told because of that.

I can’t ever imagine not shipping them.

I love you :) This was beautifully writen.

Dean/Castiel has taken over my life but Angel/Cordy remain my all time heterosexual OTP lol! ;) Of course, technically these are pairings which are vampire/human and angel/human so not sure the sexuality element even plays a part... ;)

Aww, thanks, bb. I'm glad they're your OTP still. :)

And I can bring the 'sexuality' to C/A, don't you worry. ;)

This. So much. Angel and Cordelia snuck up on everyone. Audience, writers, actors, characters...everyone..because they were NEVER the point.

Loving forward to the meme.. I have a sneaking suspicion these two will make it to multiple entries..:P

YES. I feel like they got away with something, sneaking their chemistry and their love in when everyone was all "blah, blah, Kate, blah, blah, Rebecca, blah, blah, Darla"....

because they were NEVER the point.

Which is why, I truly believe, the ship had room to grow and become what it was in You're Welcome.
