Because I can. So I will ~
-Seriously that's it
Why I ship it:
I don't know where Lucky stands in the eyes of this fandom nowadays, but one thing I love about this ship is it helps him grow up. I don't think Lucky is a bad guy, he's a kid/teen, still learning who he is and what he's meant to do. Rebecca's arrival tests his strengths and weaknesses: can he step up and really help this girl? Should he take her word for who she is? (He remembers eventually but it would take a while.) He'd be frustrated at first, uncomfortable and would learn very quickly to try this patience he never had time for before. But bit by bit, Rebecca's confidence grows. Her adventurous spirit starts to show and Lucky realizes that they really aren't so different. But they are where it counts. Rebecca is like Lucky, yes, but the bolder she grows the more she challenges his irrationality and honestly I think Lucky might love that. It would annoy him, yes, but at the end of the day he's left smiling and looking forward to the following one with her.
Pudgy awkward guy and rough&tumble tomboy. Two misfits in their circle of friends/families. I love this ship because of how odd, playful and unexpected it is. Neither one of them expected to fall in love. They befriended each other during a time they felt isolated from their usual group, instead of letting envy and dwindling confidence consume them. They found attention, acceptance, in the most unlikely of places, bringing out the best in each other. They're both lovers and best friends for life. Two halves a whole they didn't realize they were missing until they met.
I like this ship. I do. Badgirl falls for the good boy because he relates and understands without even meaning to. Call out your trope-alerts, I don't care. I'm sure Two-Tone is at least somewhat self-conscious about her weight, even though she doesn't say anything. Rolly's been called just about every overweight insult in the book; he sympathizes and might awkwardly try to comfort her by offering snacks and saying she looks fine the way she is. Or something like that, but more Rolly. They'd be friends at first, without question, and though Two-Tone tries to keep it secret at first, Rolly isn't happy about that. He confronts her, calling off their friendship and unknowingly forcing her to make a choice. This is the one 'goodgirl' Two-Tone ship I like because I honestly think Rolly could bring out the best in her. I'm not sure how long they'd last as a couple, but I at least see them dating for a while.
This ship is so cute. Soooo cute. But I really only see it happening in a world Lucky didn't mature as quickly as recalled, and Rebecca ended up growing annoyed with him/his inconsideration. I definitely think she'd side with Rolly in that case, telling him not to listen but he'd say 'you don't know Lucky, he doesn't mean it' and Rebecca would remark that that's no excuse. Rolly helped her, starting out, and she can't stand to see him treated this way. Which is the one thing I don't like about this ship in my head. It only works where Lucky is a jerk and I do not believe he's /really/ that way. Plus it's an overused trope and blah.
I'm still getting to know Grizel, but she's undersized and floppy-eared and talks fast AND IT'S JUST CUTE, OKAY??
This isn't my favorite ship, and I honestly can't remember why I ship it XD but I know there are legit reasons, and Cadpig and Rolly really seem to care for each other. There are several moments on the show I feel they're closer than Rolly is to Lucky. They're a good match: brains and empathy. Sensitive and logical and.. yeah.
If you guys don't know why I ship this one, I am so done XD No I'm kidding, but really. I started this ship. I think they're perfect, I really do. Size difference, personalities that mesh well in unexpected ways (at a first glance) and with each other a real chance and understanding to be vulnerable without criticism. They are and always will be one of my favorite dalmatian ships <3
They match well, I think. They're smart, possess similar insight, are both mature but where Spot is anxious, Cadpig is mellow. It's been a while since I really took a look at their characters but I just think one makes up for where the other falls short.
- Fitz (OC)-
Because Pride and Prejudice. I LOVE that kind of situation when done right, and with these two, it is. Spot and Fitz are so different, possess different wants and beliefs, ways of life... but there's still something about the other they can't get away from, and as they grow up, they discover what it is.
I don't love this ship like I used to, but one thing I do still love is Patch brings back a little of that happy puppyhood Angel never had. I don't think Patch would fall for her until he's older, even though he'd undoubtedly find her beautiful. I also think he's a good comeback after her falling out with Scamp: he is a little like Scamp, but stronger, happier and by the time they meet, surer of who he is as an individual. But he's also kind, empathic and a solid heart of gold.
I don't know why I like PennyPatch. I just do XD; I had a reason once, but it's been a while. I think it was DWoW initially, the bond I remember shared and frustration over Lucky leaving their posse for Rolly, Cadpig and Spot. But I think they'd be a cute and witty couple. Lots of doting sarcasm.
See 'Cadpig' for reasoning. I've tried to find someone else so fitting for Tripod, but I can't. They are perfect <3
This one I know started on DWoW. But even so. Mooch is a good guy, a smart and misunderstood punk who acts out because (imo) he's a lonely and sad individual underneath. I honestly think Rebecca barking at him to 'shove off' would startle him. She looks cute and dainty but there's a great dane under those hearts. She'd earn his respect and... honestly I haven't got anymore than that. I'm not sure if/how Rebecca would fall for him, but.. I dunno. There's something cute imagining the two years later looking back at how much they fought when they were young. (See I told you I liked that trope.)
NEED I SAY ANYTHING? OH MY GOSH THIS SHIP. Oh my gosh. OH. MY. GOSH. OTP of all canine OTPS. ALKJSLKAJS;;; BusterxTwo-Tone is amazing. They're the badboy/girl-but-not-entirely-kings and queens of their ego and domain. Irresponsible to all but each other. Two-Tone doesn't run away until she's older but she proves herself right quick. Buster is both annoyed, impressed but also resentful and tougher on her with his initiation than perhaps he would be otherwise. He's been hurt, abandoned and even though some part of him knows he deserved it, he's never taken well to it after personal headcanon says he was abandoned as a puppy until Tramp took him in. So he's got a lot of abandonment issues. I honestly think Two-Tone initiates their relationship after a while: for all their flirting, I think Buster migh be too wary to hand her his trust/heart. But once he does, there are no regrets. These two think on the same wavelength, and what they don't keeps their relationship exciting. They're completely caught up in their world and each other.. which unfortunately makes them irresponsible parents but in that way they're both immature. They never had children on purpose but never resented them. As they grew older, they did leave their children to other junkyard dogs to raise but at first, for all their.. poor choices, they did try and really do love their puppies.
I like this ship short-term. It's cute, sassy, and I mean it's actually canon which always fascinated me. I had more about them but it's been so long I've forgotten. I do like them though. They're like a slightly toned down and unhappier version of BustTone, since I do think they want different things, deep down. Mooch wants a family, to be loved and REALLY accepted. Two-Tone is more materialistic. She has deeper wants and needs but a lot of that is buried under what I consider coping mechanisms to make her feel better about herself. Plus I think she'd see this side of Mooch now and then and realize with time that he's a boy. She wants a man.
I may be the only one left who likes this ship but my gosh I REALLY do like this ship a lot. They aren't in love, never were, but hold each other's fascination all through their lives. Colette can hold her own against Mooch, which he didn't expect from the prim and proper princess. Mooch is cute but easily flustered, something Colette didn't expect but finds... not quite entertaining because she's not cruel. They challenge each other, but hold the other dear at the same time. Colette knows Mooch isn't father material, but doesn't really care. Something about him tells her he'll be in her life and her puppies' eyes for a long time. And she's right. They don't know him well, but he makes sure now and then to drop by and check in.
- Gregor (OC)-
ALKJDLAKJDKLAEJLRKJALRKJA;;;; I LOVE THIS SHIP. I LOVE IT. Jewel is PERFECT for Gregor. I like to imagine her with almost royal/regal personality traits: kind, responsible, maybe a little too serious at times but more mature than some of her siblings. I also think Gregor would be drawn to her because these qualities remind him of the world he left behind. And he's cute, unhappy and undersized (not a lot but he is smaller than Lucky) but sweet in his own way. She'd take it upon herself to help this lonely dal and through her approach (sympathizing, going the extra mile to try understanding his past and equally trying to ease him into the future in a way he's comfortable with) befriend him. On Gregor's end I think he's a good match for her. He may be the huffy twin brother at times but his attitude stems from fear and concern: with Jewel I think he'd learn to let go a little and grow up. But he's also more a gentleman than some of the Dearly/Radcliffe Dals; he'd offer courtesy, sometimes making a fool of himself, sometimes warming Jewel's heart. I like them together and I like them as a young couple that grew apart but remained very close, and always wondered what life might have been life if they'd stayed together.
I ship this because of the plush toys I had when I was younger. I'm sure I headcanoned Wizzer had a crush on Jewel, even though Jewel didn't appreciate his attitude most of the time. They're very different, but I dunno. There's a nostalgia I still hold dear. I like GregorJewel better, but even in AotW, I like to think Jewel was that girl he told many he'd moved on from, but maybe deep down always had some kind of lingering resentment towards her because she held a piece of his heart she wasn't even aware of. Maybe. I'm not sure if I can see it two-sided. I want to think I can, I just haven't found a way to do it that I really like apart form that oen drabble I wrote a long time ago.
Fanners' OC from the very beginning. He's changed a lot, but this was the first Jewel ship I got into (besides WizzerJewel) and I've always loved it because. Plus they're really pretty, together.
Try as I might, I have no other Dipstick ship. XD; I loooove this ship because of Bri. And because I LOVED Oddball and co when I was younger. But more to DipnDots, it's a beautiful ship. A lot like LuckBecca in that the girls unintentionally force the boys to mature. But Dipstick finds happiness with Dottie. It's awkward and frightening at first, being so far away from home without his gang to cushion his antics (he'd rather be the butt of a joke than stand alone.) But Dottie isn't like them. She's as uncomfortable as he is at first. But they grow and change together and with Dottie he gets to know himself in a way he always feared to before. He's happy with her, for the first time in a long time <3
-Really though I prefer her an Aromantic Ace.
I don't know why, it's always been my headcanon without realizing it. One of those things you try to understand why you don't ship a character; when you go back, when I went back, that association felt 'right.' Ace Penny is best Penny <3 At least to me.
AKJSLKAJSALK I HAVE SO MANY UNREQUITED LOVE FEELS FROM THEM IT HURTS ME. IT DEEPLY HURTS ME. Oh my gosh. I just.. gaah. I have no words I just deeply ship them forever and ever and POOR PATCHES. POOR PATCHES. LOST THE GIRL YOU KNEW YOU WERE BEST FOR TO THE GUY WHO ULTIMATELY BROKE HER HEART. AND WHO YOU THOUGHT 'HEY, MAYBE I CAN FIX THIS NOW, MAYBE SHE'LL SEE HOW RIGHT I AM' BUT PENNY TELLS YOU OTHERWISE AND YOU REALIZE THAT ISN'T WHAT'S BEST FOR PEPPER. AND BECAUSE YOU LOVE PEPPER YOU DO WHAT YOU ALWAYS DO: BE HER BEST FRIEND UNTIL SHE SMILES AGAIN. ASLKJAELKJALWKJEKLAWJE;;;;;;;
I can't remember my exact reasoning for this ship. I had very good reason for it but I cannot for the life of me remember it exactly and I'm just too tired to browse my old journals. But I love it. I REALLY love it. I think the personality I crafted for her fits Scamp better than Angel does long-term. I just wish I could remember why DX;;;;;;;
Honestly, because I can't think of another ship for her. And because after what happened with Connor (OC) Pooka's demeanor kind of healed her.
- His ego
Because of the 102 Dalmatians PC game. I've always kind of half-shipped them. Always will XD Cruella's pet with Dipstick's daughter.. I dunno it's cute. And Oddball in the game kind of reminds me of Kiara. Maybe that's part of it. Also Fluffy was so cute and their dialogue was even more adorable.
I really don't ship these three with anyone from AotW because they live in London and AotW takes place in America, but it's possible Erzuli is adopted by a family that moves there because of work or something and runs into Little Dipper that way. I'm not sure... we'll have to see XD; Either way, I think they're cute. Their colors/patterns mesh well enough and I think their personalities would too.
I'd NOTP this bitch but I'm toooo tired.
I'd also include next gen stuff but like I said, tooooo tired.
