Guys guys guys...you've abandoned discussing the deep significance of animated love lives just to frolic in the shallow, mindless enjoyment of world politics?!  You poor, ship-deprived people...

Here, have some framegrabs of doubtful shippy intent that I nevertheless interpret as shippy in my obsessive optimism....









Notice, they're cleverly bracketed by the Xmassy ones.... Merry eXmas!  ( "eXmas" cause it's past, and therefore ex-Xmas... so sue me, but we technically have till January 6th (Twelve Days, remember) before it's REALLY too late... )


But fie, fie on whoever changed the limit on images went from ten to eight.  Now I have to count to a whole 'nother number.  Razza frassin', shiznn gruzza puzzin....

And I mean Down Deep fellas, lower the egalitarian glasses for just a little bit

Doesn't bother me in the slightest. In fact in Leela's case I find it real turn-on, or at least as much as you can be from a cartoon character.  tongue

Dammit Shiny, damn you for posting those. There I was happily lurking on this thread and now I'm going to have to watch those episodes all over again. Damn all that shippy goodness.

Hear hear !! How could I ever miss this discussion? But hey you have forgotten the other lap-poodle, namely Ugly Duck Johnnie. Do not worry people. History will judge them as what they have been.

Saddam is dead; some may say 'rightfully so'. Now how about the other people that caused the death of thousands - and still do now? And I mean the Chimp and his willing pets. Do you guys in Western democracies realise what this looks like to others ? Meeeh... I am sickened, truly.

ColdAngel - no I did not have a great XMas and New Year. I am a pessimist - do you really expect me to have anything 'great'? I did have great XMases and New Year Eves whan I was a student and only a beginner in being depressed - oh boy, I guess most of you guys were probably in the pipeline or rugratz  smile - no offence.

And on the screencaps: nice work Shiny, as you may know from the angry reactions here, in Aust they've taken Futurama off altogether, so the price for the Futurama DVDs has increased on EBay Aust  wink

I have in fact always wondered if Fry is protecting Leela in the elevator, or just trying to hold on to whatever in the corner fartherst possible from Santa's rocket...I lean towards the second option unfortunately, also considering the episode sequence. Funny huh - I reckon many of us would try to protect the loved one from harm, but I am sure I could not help telling myself 'this is not gonna work, it is a damn large missile, we'll all be mince'. Maybe I'd rather go to it and try to ... er... dunno, disconnect the battery? I'm rather technical-minded  smile Yesss. that sounded stupid. I know.

Ah yes... and Happy New Year y'all.

Whenever I'm faced with a life and death situation, like an out of control car coming at me, or three enraged Dobermans, the last 'coherent' thought that hits me before flight instinct takes over is something along the lines of:
Well, at least now I can discover if I truly have superpowers or not.
This is how my mind works. Super-heroism is always an alternative to me, however remote. When I read Spider-Man comics, or X-Men comics, these aren't fantasies... they're options.

I love the pic of fry and leela on the log where leela is keeping Fry from falling. She is saving his life so i think she would do it if she liked him or not however it's not like the profeser is trying to help.

Well, Fry is in more danger that the others being the who's on the actual edge of the waterfall.


Now, there are 5 different 'love languages' in a special segment, and I reckon I've worked out the ones that are relative to them.

1: Quality Time: Fry and Leela spend alot of their time together and this is what builds their relationship from the start and then becomes something treasured in later episodes.


2: Physical Touch: (stop sniggering)
'I just wanted was a mum and dad to hold me and stroke my hair and tell me they loved me.'
Fry and Leela yearn for love which neither of them recieved much in their childhood. Late in the series they start comforting each other with hugs and such.


3: Acts of Service: How many of you would take on an army of angry water people? Go out and risk being caught be Santa? Give your Oxygen? Stand in front of a giant bee stinger? Make a deal with the Devil?
Leela and Fry have sacrificed so much for each other.

Love language eh? Heh, does that mean there's a country where everyone speaks in Love?
*shudder* Makes me think of that couple in Love and Rocket..

So...they're speaking these languages...is the point now to find out how they might become fluent in them?

They are... everyone is, it's a subconcious thing.

I'm a 'Physical Touch' and 'Quality Time' person myself.

The fourth and fifth one I haven't mentioned yet is the Giving/Recieving Present thing, I forget the name, and Words of Affirmation. There's a test thing somewhere, I have a book, but I'm sure it's on the internet somewhere.
It was originally a Christian thing, but you don't have to be a religion, everyone has one or two majors in it.

Lots of nice frame grabs. They are really physically comfortable around each other, aren't they. The "take it off or I'll break it off" quip from Leela to Fry was the exception rather than the rule of their encounters, wasn't it? Of course she generally rejected his advances that came from out of the blue, but in the right moments they just kind of melt into one another. I'll just sit here a minute and replay the end of L&R in my head... Damn you Zoidberg!!
PS: Hey you more experienced shippers, I just ordered the comic book collection; any shippy moments in them I should look for?

Yes. I don't have them all, but I know there's a really shippy scene in #21.

The 'take it off or I'll break it off' line was in A FLight to Remember, so that was pretty early on in their quasi-relationship.

I'd say 'Skeptical and Lazy' rather... M..az, the language of Love is felt. The part that is spoken is only to reaffirm, comfort and reassure. But that's only the tip of the iceberg.

And I believe TLF's five aspects are just one of the many frameworks trying to give shape to love. As for the quality time, I believe Fry & Leela do spend a lot of time together, but it's not all quality. Also self-sacrifice does not necessarily imply love (but strongly hints it   wink )


And here is one of my favourite fanarts:



Oh... let me die Defending my Love.

The sting that made Leela aware of her love for Fry and showed how much Fry really loved Leela. A great episode. My Favourite.

If it makes any difference, I though the post was lovely, I like it alot

*pokes Coldy* You mister man need to relax and enjoy shippy things, instead of going all 'macho', you're not fooling me, I know you like shippy really so stop hiding it.

ooooooh, just thought of a sad song! BY me, its based roughly on Leela's thoughts in the Sting, please don't flame me, I burn easily.

You gotta hold me,
You're the only thing,
That keeps my head above the waves,

You gotta save me,
You lift me up,
And stop me drowning in my sea of misery,

And in the darkness,
When I'm all alone,
I think of your name,
And picture your face,
You're the light my life baby,

Come on and hold me,
You're the only one,
Who stops me falling through my life,

Please save me,
You hold me up,
And stop me sinking in my pit of despair,

And in the darkness,
When I'm all alone,
I think of your name,
And picture your face,
You're the light my life baby,

Oh hold me,
Where are you where are you,
Come on save me,
I need you I need you,

Coz I'm lost in the dark,
And there's nobody home,
I'm calling your name,
but you're nowhere around!

You were the only one,
And now you've left me all alone,
I'm drowning in misery,
Falling in despair,

Oh hold me,
Where are you where are you,
Come on save me,
I need you I need you

Coz I'm lost in the dark,
And there's nobody home,
I'm calling your name,
but you're nowhere around!

I'm wondering through time,
Wait for the date,
When I'll meet you again,
The day I meet my fate...

Sweet art. The Sting's my fave ep too. It's such a well written episode and the shippiness is wonderfully deep.
