This is why I prefer to stay away from shipping wars; I'll get myself in trouble. (My favourites are ThomasxLady, PercyxEmily, JamesxDaisy, TobyxMavis, RosiexCharlie, MollyxArthur, BellexFlynn, JackxIsobella and BertiexElizabeth) Anyway, let me know what your favourites are.
Okay, I'm weirded out that the whole shipping thing has gone down THIS FAR. I have a brother (age 2) and sister (age 4), and they sit to watch it every night. I also know a boy (who is the son of my parents' friends) that loves the show, and I believe it's his favorite. So to say that I'm surprised about discovering shipping here by accident would be an understatement, so... yeah.
... There's PAIRINGS for this?... How would that even work? They're TRAINS... Trains can't be intimate, even if they CAN talk... It's official, childhood-destroyed.
On an unrelated note, I'll never get used to the name "The Fat Controller". It's pure nostalgia from being a 2-4 year old American at the time, and it doesn't matter as I'm not involved with anything beyond what I knew as a kid, but he'll always be Sir Topham Hat to me.
Thomas the Tank Engine shipping. I really don't know how to respond to that. It's kind of weird. Then again, all of my memories of Thomas the Tank Engine are back in its older days, when they were still using the original stories. Those were good days. I grew up on this. Thomas the Tank Engine will always rule!
