Back by popular demand from the Ryder shipping archives!
Back when Blood Heir was a weekly serial, a certain Horde I know and love used to have shipping wars in the comment section over their favourite Julie match. Ilona wrote this tongue in cheek conversation amongst the various factions.
Thank you to House Andrews for the permission to share!
Team Derek: Grown up Julie is going to meet Derek and there will be kissy face.
Team Ascanio: Excuse me? Have you even read the part with THE BOUDA?
Team Derek: Who cares? Derek can do everything Ascanio can do, only better.
Team Ascanio: He has scars!
Team Derek, clutching pearls: He is battle scarred. Women dig scars.
Team Ascanio: Our boy is hott.
Team Derek: Your boy is a sexual deviant.
Team Ascanio: Derek and Julie are like brother and sister. Show me chemistry! Where is the chemistry?
Team Derek: But Magic Stars!
Team Ascanio: That’s ambiguous.
Team Yu Fong: Excuse me. Has everybody forgotten that there is an extremely hot and powerful dragon who has shown interest?
Team Ascanio: He is a side character.
Team Yu Fong: You’re a side character!
Team Derek, chanting: Metal rose, metal rose, metal rose…
Team Dark Horse: Wait, wait, I have a theory. What if Saiman isn’t really dead and she finds him and they hook up…
Team Derek: PERVERT!
Team Ascanio: Burn the theory. Burn it with fire.
Team Yu Fong: You know who has fire? Yu Fong.
