how did you start shipping mantimer?
I shipped it before I even saw the film. @mcicioni-blog told me it was shippy and I watched the film with full intentions to write a fic. I had a notepad open where I’d write down times of shippy moments that I liked for idea fodder later.
I honestly had never done that with a ship before, like gone in to the content expecting to ship them. For Mantimer that turned out really well, but for other ships I’ve seen (notably Farasquez), I went in expecting something different, and came out feeling like they were profoundly unshippable.
Lbr though, Mantimer is the most shippable pasta ship other than Cudvac. What’s not to love? :’)
