Of Six Million Papal Fans, Settling (Hopefully Soon) in SG and Shipping Like It's No One's Business

+ Let us start with a meme just because leobrat tagged me.
Choose 5 OTP’s without looking at the questions behind the cut first, then tag friends to do the same.

1. Danny/Mindy (The Mindy Project)
2. Harvey/Donna (Suits)
3. Oliver/Felicity (Arrow)
4. Quinn/Carrie (Homeland)
5. Rafael/Jane (Jane the Virgin)

I didn't answer all the questions (sorry!) but you can. I pasted all the ones I could find below in the text box.

1. Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter that you first started shipping 5 (Rafael/Jane)?
Pretty much from episode one. Jane the Virign set me up really early on and though I was slightly torn for a while there because of Michael, it was always Rafael for me. Now get to know each other more. Nothing like a baby to force two people together.

2. Have you ever read fanfiction about 2 (Harvey/Donna)?
Yes, and I don't know if I just have weird fic standards but I haven't found much good fic (or I don't know how to search for the right fic or where to find it) but I wasn't too impressed with the few fic I read on the two of them. I actually really need fic for these two just because we know so little and see so little of the actual relationship since they're not in one.

3. If 3 (Oliver/Felicity) were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?
Well they aren't together to begin with, but I would be terribly disappointed that they didn't even give it a chance. I would be sad because they've teased us terribly only to not give us what we want. I know they're going to drag this one for as long as they can. So they need to build up to something SUBSTANTIAL.

4. Why is 1 (Danny/Mindy) so important?
Because Mindy is my hero. Unlikely because I didn't even get obsessed with it till late last year after reading her book and marathoning the show and it just showed me that romcoms still exist -- even if everyone bashes it. And Mindy is the romcom lead girl (as unlikely as it may seem) and she got her guy. And what a guy he is. It's a YES WE CAN shoutout to all the girls out there who think they can't get a guy or a Danny.

6. Is 4 (Quinn/Carrie) a funny ship or a serious ship?
I wish they had more funny moments but they're definitely a serious ship. how can one not be when they're always in the situations they're in. Which is why I'm shocked they still find time to be cute when there's so much VIOLENCE around them. We don't even need the drama with all the bloodshed.

7. Out of all your ships listed, which ship has the most chemistry?
I really like Donna and Harvey just because it's a total what might have been, what could have been and whenever I see the two of them separate or together I just get shivers down my spine. Someone needs to get them together even if only in a dream sequence or in a flashback because I am dying to see them exploit this chemistry. They just GET each other.

8. Of all the ships, which ship has the strongest bond?
Still Donna and Harvey just because they go back the longest than everyone else. And they've been through so much together. As friends, they're A+ and I believe as lovers, they'll be indestructible (or not because the show is Suits and they ruin everyone). But it's okay. I feel like they could withstand so much more than the show has thrown at them and they're not even together yet.

9. How many times have you read/watched 2 (Harvey/Donna)’s fandom?
I don't get to rematch Suits much but I would totally go back to their clips just to see the banter. I love their banter. Their banter reminds me of Don/Sloan who didn't make it to the 5 I listed just because the show is over.

10. Which ship lasted the longest?
By default it's Mindy and Danny just because none of the others are together. I just realised there must be something wrong with me shipping people that aren't even together yet. It must be some sort of unrequited love thing. Though Jane/Rafael just got together and barely so it's definitely 1.

11. How many times, if ever, has 5 (Rafael/Jane) broken up?
Almost once? But I think that they'll be doing it a lot more as the season progresses just because they got them together really quickly too. It's impossible they won't break them apart what with Michael there and all the secrets and it's the CW, so yes, there will be more.

12. If the world was suddenly thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which ship would make it out alive, 1 (Danny/Mindy) or 3 (Oliver/Felicity)?
Oliver and Felicity just because he's the Arrow. But I wouldn't give up on Danny or Mindy. They're New Yorkers and are pretty tough but who are we kidding? Arrow is a super hero and we all know they're the ones who come out alive with the girl (and Felicity isn't just a girl -- she will kick ass).

13. Did 4 (Quinn/Carrie) ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?
I think they're hiding their feelings, YES. I haven't seen the finale yet though I know what happens vaguely so my answer here could also be muddled but I think they've been denying and/or are too busy to actually admit to anything but I hope they bring it somewhere next season because I can only wait so long.

16. If all five ships were put into a couple’s Hunger Games, which couple would win?
Carrie and Quinn for sure. Though Oliver and Felicity have the best chance on paper, they're still on the good side of things. Carrie and Quinn are master manipulators and you need to be devious (a bit and crafty really) to survive the arena. Unless Felicity and Oliver do a berry stunt, I'm giving this to the CIA. You know they'll have the best backers.

17. Has anyone ever tried to sabotage 5 (Rafael/Jane)’s ship?
EVERYONE IS and everyone will continue to despite their ultra new relationship. Do I like it? No, I don't but I know it's happening and I have to accept it. This show is so cute though that even the saboteurs, I like. Petra is the best villain ever and I find myself rooting for her but also not rooting for her. It's confusing.

18. Which ship(s) would you defend to the death and beyond?
I love them all but I respect everyone's opinion and we can all disagree anytime. Plus, I'm way too lazy to be defending them. I just enjoy them. A LOT.

19. Have you ever spent hours a day going through 3 (Oliver/Felicity)’s tumblr page?

20. If an evil witch descended from the sky and told you that you had to pick one of the five ships to break up forever, which ship would you sink?
You're evil. How could you. Harvey/Donna because they both probably has too much pride to get together anyway. Might as well tear them apart already. I'm sorry guys.

Now you can copy and paste the questions! Yes, there doesn't seem to be a number 5

Tagging: malicat, earnmysong, nemophilist, icecoldrain, mightymermaid and everyone really! Come along!

+ In other news, I've arrived in the Lion City of Singapore last Thursday night and it was the longest 'journey' ever. Technically it's a three hour plane ride but because I left on the same day as Pope Francis's arrival to Manila, they were closing a whole lot of roads and I wanted to make sure I made it to the airport in time. I did at like 7am. And 12 hours later, I was at home with my siblings.

And I'm really nervous but also totally just taking Singapore a day at a time. The immigration officers were asking if i had return tickets and all and I do but hopefully I won't have to use it if I find a job within my month in Singapore so I'll need everyone's prayers and fingers crossed. I've been applying since I was in Manila but now I'm looking for referrals from friends who are here and looking for headhunters and signed up for multiple job search sites so I'm hoping this turns into something fruitful.

My siblings have been very sweet in treating me everywhere and inviting me to dinners with their friends/girlfriends and I just hope so hard that I find something here. I know it may not be for me if things don't pan out but at least I can say I tried.

+ And though I'm not in Manila, #PopeFrancisPH fever is felt all the way in SG. My sister and I do nothing but stalk the hashtags on Instagram and Twitter. Other than missing the five day holiday back home, I don't think I'd be daring enough to actually stalk the Pope live.

Apparently 6 million people went to one of his masses and I saw photos and it's pretty crazy. I kind of wish I was there but can also imagine the panic attack waiting to happen. And for all the craziness of the church in the past years, Pope Francis just seems like a nice guy. So I'm hoping the rest of his visit is A+

And even the corrupt politicians can't resist his awesomeness. I hope everyone has like some sort of miraculous conversion just by seeing him and that his visit actually has lasting effects on everyone. It's amazing to see everyone turn out to the streets to see like a split second of him as he passes by. Rockstar status, I swear.

+ In other news, I've been eating less (because things are pretty expensive here and I'm paying for everything -- except for all the times my siblings treat me which is so fantastic and sweet of them) and I've shockingly taken to jogging more. I feel so safe (I don't want to jinx this but it had to be said) in Singapore -- a far cry from how I feel in Manila (don't get me wrong, I love MNL but wow SG is just a world apart) so I'm actually stepping out of the house a lot and exercising.

Sure, it's a slow jog that I probably walk faster than I jog but if I keep this up, I might actually turn it into a habit. And it's weird not living with my parents. I know I'm 27 and should have moved out a long time ago (but we're Filipino and we never do) and so even if my siblings and I live together, everyone has their own thing and I can come and go as I please -- mostly to just walk to the park or walk the block.

I usually do a lot of walking in SG or anywhere I travel really, but this unemployment thing and the fact that everything is so accessible here is going to have me walking a lot. I really want a Nike+ Fuelband to just measure it all, but that's neither here nor there.

And I've prattled on way too long. How is everyone's weekend? I hope you're all fine and dandy. Here's to a great week up ahead for everyone.
