coprime: two game-obsessed, winning-obsessed nerds (ships that I ship)
Friday, February 24th, 2017 08:48 pm
Canon: Babylon 5
Pairing: G'Kar/Londo Mollari
Canon Level: Enemies to Friends

There is something intensely compelling about these two very complicated characters and how their relationship evolved over the course of the series, from bitter enemies to close friends. They're both fascinating on their own, G'Kar's self-possession and deep faith, Londo's hubris and fall and desire to set things right. And from the start of the show, there has always been deep feelings between them, and for those to undergo such a complete about face? I can't not want to read about what these two mean to each other.

Canon: Babylon 5
Pairing: Delenn/John Sheridan
Canon Level: Married

When I was a bitty [personal profile] coprime, I used to watch this show every week with my mom, and both of us were rooting for Delenn and John throughout the series. Theirs was clearly a love for the ages, and they managed to make it work! There really wasn't anything more I could ask for. But to elaborate as much as I can given that the show is over two decades old and I wasn't fannish back then in the way I am now, Delenn as a character has always been one I've looked up to and admired--her strength and convictions, her desire to make things better, and her serene grace. And their romance reminded me of a great romance novel, complete with marriage and a kid (even if it was more of a happy-for-now than a happily ever after).
