ROSEMANDO (Rosemary/Fernando, Ashita no Nadja)
when I started shipping it if I did: I don’t remember how it started but I know veteranfangirl was largely to blame.
my thoughts: It’s total crackship with them aged up. The concept in my head is that post-series, Rosemary stays working as a servant in Fernando’s estate. She works in the laundry and brings his fresh clothes up to his rooms, which is how it all starts. They’re terrible for each other; they constantly fight to gain the upper hand; the whole affair (because it’s an affair, not a relationship) is very competitive and power-play (and not in a healthy way) and sometimes cruel. Rosemary ends up fully seducing him and they have a torrid secret sexual affair. They begin to have some sort of feelings for each other but they both know they’re messed-up feelings and not really healthy ones. Sometimes this bothers them but mostly they just keep the game spinning and don’t think about the future when it’s inevitably going to fall apart. It’s a delicate delicate balance between “I don’t give a shit about you, I just use you for your body and to feel powerful” and “I feel a tenderness towards you that I will never fully admit but comes out sometimes in gestures” (both feelings occuring in both parties). It’s really fucked up and I love it.
What makes me happy about them: They’re like fuckin firecrackers and it’s awesome.
What makes me sad about them: God, everything when you think about it too much.
things done in fanfic that annoys me: Haha none exists so N/A.
things I look for in fanfic: Again, N/A.
Who I’d be comfortable them ending up with, if not each other: ANYBODY GOD.
My happily ever after for them: They don’t have one. Because while they feel a fondness for each other, they’ll never be in love, so Fernando would never do the backflips necessary to get away with courting a commoner. Their best-case scenario is ending their affair on equal footing and Rosemary leaving the estate forever.
who is the big spoon/little spoon: Fernando grabs onto her in the night because he gets night terrors, especially if the windows are closed. Fernando gets really claustrophobic when he sleeps.
what is their favorite non-sexual activity: They don’t have one oh my god.
this is one of my favorite ships and this explains it quite nicely and omg I love this ship they’re so fucked up @u@ I just want to reblog to spread the gospel of rosemando
