So we've all thought of those people that could be together , but what about people that you would never want to see together?

I wouldn't mind this at all. They had that one moment where they were talking about their humanity that felt very natural and organic. I think they'd actually be an interesting couple.

Mr Trick/Mayor - It would have kept me alive flonger for a start!:p

Fred/Spike - I think they worked better as friends, but wouldn't have mind seeing what sort of chemistry they had as lovers.

Oh good one with Anya/Angel! Don't think I've seen them mentioned as a couple before.

Hmm...without getting creative about it which could be considered downright trollish if I did list some possible crack ships that come to mind (that is, I'm restricting myself to what could actually be considered by the writers--and also leaving out those that DID happen that I would've appreciated if they hadn't), Eve with Angel (or any other "good guys"), Angel with that demon woman in She (and glad she's not a recurring character, though I don't hate her as many other fans do, I just think one episode was enough for her).

Connor/Lorne (ask me why)

I had Lorne originally for Andrew, because he would be a good mentor for Andrew, play charades with him, listen seriously and fatherly to his silly interests, since people probably think the same of his interest in movies and movies stars, they could talk pop culture together and he would show Andrew you can both grow up, be a man and keep your don't take life to seriously attitude at the same time.

Buffy is a very subtextually queer show with a huge lgbt fanbase, if Angel lacks in that department, then making Connor gay and pairing him with the series most fluid character would be doing a generosity to his character and give his very punchable angst, more heart, dimension and depth. The age difference is a little problematic (hello, Cordy) in this cse we will call it subversive. I picture Connor a youth in the style of Brian Kinney which gives him instant groupies and Lorne in a friendship-mentor will they wont they.


Faith/Anya. Am I the only one curious what reformed Faith would have to say about Anya's self pity and the world owes me attitude? Faith does not need Anya's poo pooing of accountability (they were bad men / they had it coming /they hurt me) and Anya is not the type to let any thing go, she is also violent and if she got her feelings hurt might answer with a back-hand, especially since a slayer is tough enough to take it.

Willow/Lilah.

Lorne/Andrew (Landrew?) sounds beautiful...and I never saw it until you described it. And the thought of Faith & Anya there did make me chuckle, I don't think they could stand the other beyond sex (if even that) and I'd sympathize with Faith there
