Who Do You Ship?

Robson Green and Hermione Norris in Wire in the Blood

We've talked a bit about non-romance books we've read, and as romance novel fans, we tend to look for the romance, even in books that aren't tagged as such. It's called 'shipping,' and we all do it, even if we're not always aware of it.

So which couples did you wish would get together romantically in a non-romance book (even if it didn't turn out that way)?

I just finished reading P.B. Ryan's Still Life with Murder, and I was totally shipping Nell, the Irish governess, and William, the son of the family she works for. They flirt with each other also, but given the times (1868 Boston) and the circumstances (he's an opium addict), it is highly doubtful anything could happen. Apparently they work together on future cases in the series, but I just wish they would get together. I doubt that will happen, though.

I'm a shipping fiend. Even TV shows where you would think there is no possible way of shipping people, I ship. For me romance is what makes a show/book/movie more interesting and adds a human element so I always look for it.
