It's not a case of what I want. All I want is consistency...

I'm digging a hole aren't I.

Placing you there was just an incentive for people to come and begin filling it out. Or to come and begin removing things. As a responsible wiki editor, I'm supposed to encourage and promote others to do stuff like that for themselves. Or something.

You could if you wanted, you know. I'd welcome you wholeheartedly.

And as for an image...



There you are.

If anyone wants themselves added to the shippers' table, tell me, and I'll battle the fierce wiki-code beast of lore to put them there.

First off add me to that table as full support to Fry/Leela, Amy/Kif, Farnsworth/Mom, and since it's on there mild support Kirk/Spock you put on there.

Second, I can see that Fry could have noticed that his friendship with Leela had gotten stronger so her just let it but there is a distinct possibility that Fry and Leela did date but something happened to mess it up.

I had typed my last post at school while there was about 30 seconds left of the period during physics so I couldn't read everything that was posted after that. which I had quoted.

Why must everyone insist on the one possibility that someone must have messed it up? This is depressing, disheartening, and demoralising. What evidence is there at all in favour of this view? Why is it so popular? Why?

Are you really my... friend?
</cable guy>

I'm willing to entertain any idea that lets the ship off the hook for teh period. The possibility that they simply didn't match up at the time, the possibility that they mutually decided to remain very close friends without ever pursuing a date or even the possibility that they got married, had two kids and then had an acrimonious divorce followed by an emotional reunion that brought them back to where they'd been beforehand. All of these and more I am wiling to entertain...

Someone, write fanfic about these things!

Because it's less depressing than the idea that they just drifted apart.

You may find that the Shipper table is a bit easier to edit now, I added some templates to make it easier.

Leela might have been partially assimilated by the Borg during that 2-year period, resulting in memory loss and a fractured sense of self leading to emotional instability.

I don't particularly find it depressing that they might have drifted apart. There are points when people just don't click, they don't need to mess anything up, they can be completely in love, but they both realise that it just isn't going to work at that particular moment.

That said there isn't much evidence for it.

Also, I think coldy is projecting his own experiences onto the show again.

Regarding the Borg?

I will not sacrifice the Futurama shipper thread! We've made too many compromises already; too many retreats. They invade our forum and we fall back. They assimilate entire threads and we fall back. Not again. The line must be drawn here! This far, no further! And I will make them pay for what they've done!

I just sat at my coffee coffin (I have a coffin as a coffee table) for a few hours putting together a few model aircraft for my collection, and by osmosis I happened to absorb pretty much all of Four Weddings and a Funeral, which happened to be playing on the television. I mention this because I think that anyone who is depressed by the rise and fall of our favourite animated couple's troubled relationship might want to have a watch of it.

Also, it has a hilarious bit where the British twat with the wanker hair sits beside some old man at a wedding party and introduces himself:


Twat: Hello, I'm Charles.

Old man: Don't be ridiculous! Charles died twenty years ago!!

Twat: ...Must... be a different Charles.

Old man: Are you telling me I don't know my own brother!?

Ha. I don't normally watch movies that don't have a vampire and an explosion.

Xanfor, my good man, put me down in Blue for Fry/Leela and teal for Kif/Amy.

Might want to add this page to the infosphere too. Just a thought.

PS: I just noticed I don't have a page.

Professor: "I'm sad now."

What are the criteria for getting a page on wikiPEELia?

Yep I got it to work there. Now all I need is to find out how to create a page/have a page created for me.

I've got a kind of "Bender from APTR" vibe going here. Plus I'm recovering from surgery and have nothing else to do.

I want to create a wikiPEELia page how do I do that. I already have the account there's probably some big botton there some where that says create page that I'm missing... or does someone need to do that for me. And what should I put on it. God I need sleep.

We should get back on topic....

Sorry about that, there were three images flush right, which were overlapping the table (which hid the column for Spock). Maybe they can go back up if there's more text between the TOC and the table.

Eh, the point is that you go to http://www.splitmonkeys.de/wiki/index.php/  and then stick your name on the end. If there's a page already, great. If not, you'll be able to make one.

Now how's about more Leela/Leela? Come on, you know you all secretly want to see it. Ralph has said that Leela only thinks about herself! So obvious really. Yeah...
