30 Days Shipping Challenge, Day 15- What is your favourite real life pairing?
Jeremy Petter and Tally Heilke/Graham Stark and Kathleen DeVere (LoadingReadyRun)
So, I so not expect anybody who follows me to understand this, but I will explain why I chose these guys in a second. First, if you want to know who LoadingReadyRun are, and so who Graham, Kathleen, Tally and Jer are, refer to this post (although Desert Bus is over now).
I felt like to pick a favourite real life pairing I would ahve to have some kind of personal attachment to it. With fictional ones we have that emotional connection, but with RL couples it their business, they’re personal life (and a lot of the time I’m biased against pairing because of my crush on the guy). But with LRR (short for LoadingReadyRun btw) they’re so very connected with their fans, talking to them on twitter and on the forums all the time. They meet their fans sometimes and just hang out, and because they’re not uber famous or anything it’s more friendly and less ‘omg I love you’. So I feel, having been a fan of LRR for a few years now, that I know these guys a little. I know what they like and their quirks and I recognise that these relationships are so adorable in their own ways.
You can probably gather the dynamic of them from the pictures. Both Graham and Kathleen (right) are goofy, hilarious people. Kathleen’s kind of crazy and Graham’s sarcastic and neither are afraid to act ridiculous. They’re perfect for each other- they’re not obviously gooey or romantic, but they’re sweet in their own way. Jer and Tally (left) are a lot more adorable in the conventional sense. Tally’s so sweet and lovely, she’s funny (kind of a given with the LRR cast and they’re friends) but she’s soft and gentle as well while Jer is adorkable and silly. Again, perfect for each other.
