<Beware, Anti-shipper remarks may follow>

Perhaps Leela's part as 'The Other' was already fulfilled in TDTESS.

That's why I posed the 'maybe' and question mark. She could have already fulfilled whatever 'the other' was supposed to do, maybe in caring for Nibbler as a pet she is doing what the Nibblonians foresaw. Unless we gain some confirmation from the creators, we won't really know.

@Shiny Yes, there is a list now. That's something that should have been done long ago. God bless your anal retentive heart.

@Xanfor Thanks for posting the FemJesse pick, saved me use of my suicide pistol.

Unfortunately Xanfor's hypothesis is all too possible. I just hope that they are not that horribly sadistic.

FemJesse is a shipper of the highest order - her artwork over @ TLZ shows that.  The young lady is busy with college and is trying to get her name out in the artitic field, so being able to do anything Futurama related is difficult.

I feel like a kid in a candy store when she makes a rare appearance and shares her artwork with us.

The other major artist of the 'silver age' The voices, pulled most of his art from most sites.  I get the feeling that he's a major perfectionist and he felt that his earlier art was somehow flawed.  He couldn't be more wrong - the stuff that I've gotten from Russian and other sites shows a great talent with a creative mind.  I can only hope that he makes a comeback when the new DVD's get released.

Then we have the very young and very talented Demeter.  Still in High School, she's a mod for FM/TLZ, does a lot of art that is amazing.  She is rapidly becoming one of my favorite artists - anywhere.

Almost all the great work from the above named artists have a Fry/Leela shippy theme to them.  Coincidence?  I think not!

I'm reasonably certain that "the other" means more than just what happened in TDTESS or "Why of Fry." 

Exhibit A:
 
Quote
Fry: "If you ever need a saviour again, just ask!"

Lord Nibbler: "Oh, we will.  We will!"

 wink

Being among those who understand anality is good.  FemJesse rocks.  Xanfor, I love ya (you know I was just kidding in my grouchiness, right?).  And SpaceCase, Hopeless, and Ralphmeister, I love you too.  In fact, I love everybody.  I love PEEL.  PEEL rocks.  Futurama rocks.

Three-day weekends rock.  big grin

Oh great, I turn my back for a couple of minutes and everyone takes MDMA.

As a booby prize, I'll just say that I love you too, Shiny. (In a respectful way. It's not like I live in your city or anything...)

You know, the nice thing about being a shipper is that you never have to double post in the same thread. Shippers have multiple threads. And thanks to me (Does happy dance) they're all cross-referenced. (Dances) Now, to start off another dicussion of which we are renowned the board over, (Dances) allow me to present... This!

For God's sake, I've been on for a couple of months and have lost count of the "Leela is a tease" stupid comments. That's like saying that all new members are flamers, true in some cases, but not in all of them.

Don't forget that damn HopelessShipper. I hate shippers, especially hopeless ones. They're all so in touch with their "feelings" and "emotions." All they ever do is flame and troll about how Fry and Leela should be together! Fry is too stupid and Leela is using Fry just to get pampered.
Oh wait...
I love shippers, especially hopeless ones. Fry and Leela should be together!

I'm not sure we need to refute...I think the point futz is making is that IF Fry&Leela were to remain "status quo" till they're the Prof's age, THEN Leela would qualify as a "day tripper" (and in that case, even Fry would catch on, invalidating the whole thing). 

Of course, I could be wrong.  In which case I'll have to crush futz's head most egregiously...

Time to bring this thread back to life. I'm on Ralph's side on the page 9 debate over the relationship affecting the show. I don't buy that Fry and Leela getting together (even getting married) would take the lustre off their relationship or the show. Ever heard of "Everybody Loves Raymond", "King of Queens" or "My Wife and Kids?"  Those shows are/were pretty funny.

I don't need to see the same old Fry gets close to Leela/Leela starts to reciprocate/They get interrupted or Leela rejects Fry formula any more. The Futurama staff could pull off a few more episodes like that but I think it's time for the 'ship to take a different tack, hoist the mainsail and make some headway.

To remain on topic, I agree they should be together, and no, they shouldnt tie the knot at the very last episode   hmpf To be honest, the show could still work just as well and be just as funny, if not funnier than if it would be otherwise. I wouldnt lose any ship for it even after they (AND THEY WILL) tie the knot... Why? Because Fry has done everything for her, risked his life, switched his hands, (and switched back) with the robot devil. I would lose all respect for Leela if she doesnt tell him she loves him after all he's been through for her.

Secondly, in the very last episode TDHAIP, Leela tells Fry that she never knew he had this incredible talent, and that she has been a justified, prudent fool. She was referring to the music he was creating by himself... and not actually being able to play the music. For Real
