Top 3 Thursday – ‘Ships’ That Never Sailed

The theme for Top 3 Thursday this week is ‘ships’ that never sailed. I really had to think about this week’s theme as often when my “ships” sink, they are usually replaced with new ones I grow to love just as much if not more. With that in mind, here are three ships that never sailed but I still wish did.

Frodo Baggins and Samwise Gamgee
Lord of the Rings Trilogy
by J.R.R. Tolkien

These two are just so darn cute and I love how much they care about each other. Yes, this is just the purest form of friendship which does include a degree of love, but I wish there was more to it. Watching how Elijah Wood and Sean Astin portrayed these characters in the films did not help. Needless to say, I was very disappointed with the ending.

Sherlock Holmes and John Watson
Sherlock Holmes Series
by Sir Arthur Conan Doyal

It is difficult not to ship these two. They are both quirky in their own ways but they seem to be made for each other. Watson would die for Sherlock and Sherlock would die without Watson. Also, Benedict Cumberbatch and Martin Freeman only made me ship them more.

Mary Bennet and Mr Collins
Pride and Prejudice
by Jane Austen

I believe Mr Collins thought too highly of himself to notice Mary would have happily accepted his marriage proposal. Jane and Lizzie may have been considered the “prize” sisters of the five, but Mary would have been a perfect wife for Mr Collins. He was not my favourite character, but I believe Mr Collins could have made Mary happy.

Who is your ultimate “ship” that never sailed?

Until next time bibliophiles!
