Tag: RIP It or SHIP It

My close friend Rachel and I were talking about a YouTube we both recently saw by PeruseProject and it was the “RIP it or SHIP it” tag.  I really enjoyed watching what pairings she ended up with and I wanted to do my own. There was one during her video that I particularly LOVED the idea of so I’ll put that particular “ship” as a bonus after my own drawings.


Here’s how you can play this game:

  1. Write down characters from books on slips of paper
  2. Put them in a jar/bowl/hat/mug and pick 2
  3. Decide if you ship it or R.I.P. it (R.I.P. it means you don’t ship them, but not necessarily that you want them dead)

For mine, I picked a couple of books that I could get some “good” and “bad” characters to see what kind of ships I could come up with. The books I used are: A Court of Thorns and Roses, Six of Crows, Game of Thrones, Stalking Jack the Ripper, The Remnant Chronicles, Roar and The Infernal Devices. Now, click below to read the fun! (Also, some of the names are smaller than I anticipated but I felt like it was too late to redo everything. Hopefully it doesn’t look too bad on your devices!)

SynopsisNew York Times bestselling author Cora Carmack’s young adult debut: Roar.

In a land ruled and shaped by violent magical storms, power lies with those who control them.

Aurora Pavan comes from one of the oldest Stormling families in existence. Long ago, the ungifted pledged fealty and service to her family in exchange for safe haven, and a kingdom was carved out from the wildlands and sustained by magic capable of repelling the world’s deadliest foes. As the sole heir of Pavan, Aurora’s been groomed to be the perfect queen. She’s intelligent and brave and honorable. But she’s yet to show any trace of the magic she’ll need to protect her people.

To keep her secret and save her crown, Aurora’s mother arranges for her to marry a dark and brooding Stormling prince from another kingdom. At first, the prince seems like the perfect solution to all her problems. He’ll guarantee her spot as the next queen and be the champion her people need to remain safe. But the more secrets Aurora uncovers about him, the more a future with him frightens her. When she dons a disguise and sneaks out of the palace one night to spy on him, she stumbles upon a black market dealing in the very thing she lacks—storm magic. And the people selling it? They’re not Stormlings. They’re storm hunters.

Legend says that her ancestors first gained their magic by facing a storm and stealing part of its essence. And when a handsome young storm hunter reveals he was born without magic, but possesses it now, Aurora realizes there’s a third option for her future besides ruin or marriage.
She might not have magic now, but she can steal it if she’s brave enough.

Challenge a tempest. Survive it. And you become its master.
