Care of Magical Shippers Podcast
Hey there listener Fancy seeing you here. Look, sometimes due to the things we discuss on the pod, it might contain potentially triggering content. But the good news is you can always review the episode description for a full list of the warnings applicable to this episode. Oh, and just so you know, this episode is rated are really filthy. It includes adult themes and explicit content. So if you're an adult, buckle up, Gird your loins and prepare to flood the basement because we are going down with these ship
crashes ship space, let's go to ship. Don't care if I guess he has stolen my bearings. Well, then you can get the bricks. This is my own TeeSpy
Welcome back to Care of Magical shippers podcast a Harry Potter ship culture podcast. I am Meg's
and I, Nathan,
if you don't know that by now, well, now you do. Like
we don't know how many of our listeners have amnesia like this. Really helpful for them? Like what are their names again?
Anyway, Gilderoy Lockhart could be listening to this. We
don't know exactly. Exactly. Have you accidentally obliviated yourself?
Or not? You can still enjoy this pot.
Well, you're going to enjoy it, especially this week. I feel because we are getting silly this week. Because Max Guess what? Its one year anniversary?
I I can't I mean, I can't believe it. Because of course like going in. It's like, we're gonna go into this thinking that we're going to do it for a while, right? Like, it's not just like, Yeah, we're gonna do five episodes. And then it'll have been a thing we did. But it's just as far as like, what we've made, how much fun we've had all the listeners and the community we've built is just absolutely amazing. I have just, I feel so enriched and happy. And it's just it's yeah, the best things to come out of like, I mean, it started with quarantine of being like, I can't go anywhere. How do I do something? It's like, oh, that's how I found fan found phantom again, and then got into the writing and then into multi shipping. And then apparently was like, yeah, why isn't there a podcast that talks about ships? Well, I'm going to make a podcast that talks about ships. And here we are doing Oh,
yeah, still, and still so full of ideas. And like I am, I'm just really happy that we will because I always knew we were sort of going into for this for the long haul. But I'm really happy that we are not just that we're still doing it. But like, every time we come to record, we have something new or exciting to share or it'll be like the thing that lifts us up that week. I I love getting to be a part of that. That makes me happy. And so I'm just like, I'm glad that exists. I'm glad that we get to interact with all of our listeners, all the lovely people in the discord. It just people are lovely. I just I'm just so you know, the Hufflepuff in me feels very appreciated and loved. And I love sharing that love with you guys.
Know, it's great. And so, okay, so I'm gonna be boring slash interesting. And share some some podcasts back for you guys. So in the past year, we've gotten 6.5 1000 listens in total amazing. I mean, obviously, I don't know how other podcasts do but I don't care. This is pretty freakin amazing to think that I depending on how many episodes you know, people, either one or all or whatever. Like that's a lot of ears that have heard my voice, which is terrifying and amazing.
Yeah, it is both. Absolutely. There is a duality there of like, wow, that's a lot of people. But then also you're like, Wow, that's a lot of people.
I know crazy. And what was it? We I think we're about halfway through that we had reached 40 or some odd countries and we did like a geological shout out thing. And now 73 countries I serious. Can't I can't believe it. I just this is just that seven
where 73 countries
way more than
they probably are but my knowledge of geography is about as stable as my knowledge of Weasley brothers. So
I'm gonna go less because we have Do I was typed how many Weasley brothers?
So for those listeners of you
95 That's a that's a pretty big dent.
It's a solid percentage. Yeah.
That's probably like, I don't know, but I know math 40 ish.
Let's not try and do maths, it's not going to move. Compensation looking? No, no, no. But for those of you for those listeners of you that held out for a year and stuck with us and thought, Okay, well, no, they're starting off a little bit giddy. Maybe as time goes on, they're gonna get more sensible. And we'll get more sense out of them. Clearly, I think as time has gone on, we've slid sort of down the other end of the spectrum. And at this point, we're just I'm unapologetic about that because the world needs more silliness at a time when a lot of very serious things are going on. And is good not to be serious for a while. I love just being able to switch that analytical side of my brain off and enjoy myself. So. So on that topic mags on that subject. Was that is that anything like cast your mind back to the past illustrious year? Has there been any, like standout moment for you, or anything that you've particularly enjoyed?
I don't know. I mean, it's just so I have to, I have to confess that editing is a joy, like, it's a time suck, but it is a joy. Because half the time we just are like, we just do our thing. And then it's weeks later that I come back to actually edit and save with you for sound editing. And then I'm literally listening through and like gut busting laughing at us, which is like, my husband thinks I'm crazy, because he's like, how he's like, you're just sitting there laughing at yourself. I was like, Yeah, cuz we're funny. Like, sorry that I that I think we're hilarious. So if I'm laughing hopefully other people are laughing with us. And but I Gosh, I'm trying to it's so hard to to think of course, just a standout isn't one that we released publicly. It's on our ao three, but I will I will treasure forever us reading. He'll me
that Oh, my God.
fanfic together, which is barely upon fics it's literally just us. Just, we're having a time. Let me let me tell you
was that was that the hot and salty line? was was that when I last? Did it hot and salty? Like?
I think so. Probably. No, no, I think that, um, that was when you and fi read for my birthday? You would? Yes. Well, is it the boy who loved I think it was one of my first fanfictions and you guys just would like read something and be like, Oh my gosh, I cannot believe this was used as a descriptor.
It was so good. Guys, if you have not read the boy who love go read that because that's incredible. I don't know. I don't know if the pod Fick is fit for public consumption. But it was, it was absolutely filthy. But very much in the same vein, as when we did heal me. There were some cracking lines and heal me though, as well that I could not get through. I'm trying to cast my mind back. There were a lot of happy tears. That's what I remember.
And I love that even though we going back like we think of, you know, a lot of people when starting out a podcast, like it's gonna be a little bit awkward. And yeah, we had some sound like weirdness, because obviously, we're getting used to like doing sound things and making it sound more official and whatever. But as far as like content goes, like we hit the ground running and I'm so proud of ourselves for that. And I think it goes yeah, it's definitely the foundation of it is, is us like the fact that we met and we're able to do this thing together. It's just like we were meant to do this together. And it's definitely just two friends having fun and so people are having fun with us and it's just yeah, so great. And even just the people that we've you know, met through it like getting to do an episode on podcast and then have the girls from puff cast on.
Red double Oh, there's so much fun on there. So up for it as well. And you know, when you just get like, this is what has been amazing about all the guests that we've had on really is that they get our vibe, they know our wavelength and they just like hop on board, and everybody has been so engaged and so all in that I've looked because I was worried whenever we started like asking guests to be on the pod. I was worried I was like, Well, is it going to be a different atmosphere? Because you don't necessarily know what people are going to contribute and how is it going to change? Right that but everybody was has been so much fun. I loved every single guest we've had on. But yes, particularly, I loved podcast I love when we had fi on and we had a great episode. There have been so many fantastic guests we had big black dog did did the wolf ish. I will never let me live this down.
It's not your fault. It is all
fandom things characters who Peter Pettigrew, Severus?
No, I mean, he doesn't want to talk about Peter, particularly for half an hour. That was something that we did. Yes. That's there if you want to go listen to that. I mean, I was like, the first episode I remember being really proud of was Linny. I came away from Linny. Because we that was around about the time where I had just like, I my mental wheels weren't working. And I lost it in the middle of the episode. And I was just like, my brain is going off the rails. But you know, we made it work. And ever since then you've been really accommodating of my crazy. And I just feel like we've made that work for us. So yeah, so I particularly enjoyed Linny I also really enjoyed Oh, let me see. I loved Ron and pansy. That wasn't the standard. And then, and then when we were like coming up with fanfic in the loose See ya. So
yeah, we pretty much wrote a fanfiction. Together.
That was that was next level incredible. There's been so many episodes that we've done that have been great. But it's hard for my brain to like, pick them apart. Because like you say, when you're editing them, you like they all sort of bleed through into one thing of awesomeness. So I imagine it's different from a listener perspective, where you're maybe getting an episode, like you're listening to an episode two weeks apart. So they're really separate. And you could sort of see how we've evolved over time. Right? We are, we're too close to the subject. Exactly. So we both love it, and are perhaps not the best at reading it either. Too close to it. But it's it's all good. Like I just the bottom line is that I love spending time with you. I love that we get to talk about everything. And there really are no holds barred. And you know, everything is on the on the literally Yeah, exactly. And you know, there's no, I haven't ever felt like we've run aground to use a ship metaphor like that.
The only time we do is literally every single closing of every single episode. We have done the one day seven episodes and we have yet to say goodbye, properly.
You Yes. Look, I know that this is our chief failing. Like, even when we asked you guys for feedback on those lovely feedback forms, you may have you know, given us very detailed feedback, some of the people were just like, you can't sign off. Look, we know where we know we're on weaknesses. So the thing is now though, is I feel like bad sign offs are our bit yeah, as well. Yeah. Like, like, no, but
yeah, it's just expected at this point. What are we get we we just it's pay, we aren't great at a bunch of other things, if we're going to be bad at something, the end of the episode is prefer?
Well, yeah. But also, as I'm sure that the listener is acutely aware by now, look, the alternative is that we just finish what we have to say. And then there's silence. But either because well, it's better now that we have a sort of a pre recorded ending where I go and next week we'll be looking at and then we fill the blanket, right. So so there is always something to follow the silence. But before where there was nothing, I was just like, we can't just leave this hanging. This is just dead air. Like what what's happening. So I don't know, I don't know that there is a proper way to sign off. And I definitely don't want to start saying holy. It's not
Landau so see
you next time mateys. No, it's not it's not gonna know. So obviously
listeners So tell tweeted us or in the discord or whatever, let us know what your favorite moments are because obviously we're going to like you said we're too close to it and we can't remember all the things but I'm sure it you know, there are things that stand out most to some listeners if they've you know, only listened to a few episodes versus whatever. I will forever love Jedi just because of the fact that and then I Okay, that's my favorite moment when you were like we have what was it? You have? Megan? In the what was it? The red corner? Who? What? No, you've me and the red quarter that doesn't know anything in Mexico. The other corner who can't remember anything? Yeah. An idiot. One has
now it's still it's still true. Officially, the Will i am the world's dumbest Ravenclaw it's official, like even like Moaning Myrtle outstrips me that that is the that's the level. That's the level of my Harry Potter argument. So you can see why I'm perfectly suited to do this podcast. Because I have a nice voice and no brain can't find her breaks
know, exactly misplace it on multiple occasions. Oh, man,
so why not keep doing this for another year? I can't wait to see what we do. And another year from now and we're like, oh my god, we're two years in. I honestly the one thing that surprises me about this point where we're at right now, is that I can't believe it's been a year I cannot believe. Yeah, okay, we've put a lot of time and work into this. To make it really good. But as well as that, because we've enjoyed it and because, you know, we are so enthusiastic about it. It doesn't also feel like a year's worth of work.
No, no, I just it's really gone. So, so quickly. And, and even like our time in between recording like, every time we see each other, it's I'm like, oh, it's been two weeks, or even sometimes three, four weeks, depending on life. And it's just yeah, I look forward to it every time and even sometimes we do go in and it's like, we don't know how this is gonna go. Like I think Linny we went in we're just like, because it's just, we're weird. It's just femslash is something that we think we struggle with. But then we've heard that you will actually really like our femslash episodes and I'm not you know, that's amazing. So that's really makes us feel way better about the fact that we feel like we're like are we enthusiastic enough? Like do we know enough whatever but I think we've done so many different things and probably one of my favorite episodes of course is the what we consider the snot early you know episode or like Cheverly, the Jade, Severus and, and Lily that was so much fun. And of course I'll never forget what was it? Seahorse, Snape who's like carrying the babies and then then Giuliana from puff cast drew a picture of Snape the seahorse which was fantastic and yeah, I don't know. It's just there's just a lot of nonsense in our very like it's just we've made some really amazing things and I'm so proud of what we've made and we've just had so much fun and everything's been so positive like there's just we went into this to celebrate fandom in an environment that can be very toxic and we haven't been touched by that and that at least you know knock on wood but it's it's just amazing that we have so much positive feedback and support by so many people which is just it's amazing. I'm just so yeah,
and with in relation to the snorkeling episode I remember that was the one and only episode that I ever wrote show notes for because that was released after after feedback. So I decided that because so Okay, so we know that you love us but some of the feedback was you meander around the plane and we'd love more like ship focused stuff. So we were like Okay, so we need to get our our stuff together. So I wrote a show notes to like as an outline and and then I remember I know that you were really excited about the episode and I remember making a particular bullet point and it was like mags I know you're only excited about this because you finally get to talk about Snape.
Yeah, and I lost it. I absolutely lost it. It's just an excuse for you to talk about Snape Maher.
Yeah, I would I know what you say Snape is your favorite character like of all of the following options?
I don't know. I mean, I probably at the beginning of this podcast, I'd say yes. But now I've really gotten into so many other ships and things but as far as like I definitely think Snape is one of the most interesting because I can write them in tons of different ships at different points in time or whatever and yeah, I'd say that he's probably one of my my favorites but I just I don't know I just love so many characters but I definitely come back to him is like the person that I want to ship with everyone so I guess yes, that's that's fairly true. I mean, next would be I don't know I feel like Harry is like a default like of course I love Harry Of course everyone you know has that love for Harry but as far as like having one you like to create around and have a lot of fun with because Snape is so complex and has a lot of angst and potential for you know, things like that. That makes him really Yeah, I don't know just makes him compelling to me, I guess but I don't know that I could really say hands down favorite character, but I guess it would be him. Because yes, oh, I don't know.
I don't know. See because there's a difference for me between favorite character. And then favorite character in fanfic. Because I get what you're saying about Snape is because he's so dynamic, and there are so many like shades of grey with Snape, you can take him in so many different directions. And you do and that's what's fantastic. But like, one of my favorite characters of the entire franchise is Dumbledore. But I haven't read an awful lot of Dumbledore, fanfiction. Yeah. Because fanfic Dumbledore, it tends you tend to get into sort of either Dumble bashing, or Well, I suppose the landscape of it is a bit different now. Because you have fantastic beasts coming up as well. And we have the new film coming out or it's, well, it well, it's out by now. At time of recording, it's still not there. I don't think it's out yet. I don't know. Anyway.
By the time you leave whatever, right? Yeah,
yeah. It'll be out by the time you hear these words. So it's cool. But you know, maybe so maybe there'll be different stuff written about Dumbledore after we get more sort of Jude Law, older stuff. But, but, you know, it's the characters that I love to read in fanfic, are often the wackiest, you know, versions, like, you know, like, overdramatic, Draco is incredible.
Yeah, Draco is.
Yeah, he is, especially, you know, with the guyliner and the cape on the like boots. There's always boots, I love it so much. So I just, I just want to read more, I just, I thought I did worry at the start of this, that I would be somehow because you know, when you look into something to a certain degree, and at a certain depth, you worry that you're going to lose your enthusiasm for it or that it will like the shine will wear off after time. But if anything, that the the more fanfic I read, it just makes me want to read more. And I thought I like I thought the opposite might happen. But I just find myself getting more enthusiastic about chips and characters that I would never have even considered, like when we did the spoof episode, I would never have pictured those two together. And now I can't unsee it.
Hmm. Yeah, that's, I mean, that's another thing that I love about this. So we'll take something seriously or pick something like Lockhart and McGonagle and be like, Okay, this is ridiculous. But then you come out, we went through everything of like her at his bedside at the, you know, at the memory Ward and all this. I mean, it just got so wholesome, and whatever, you just all these things, and it's just, it's just so much fun. That's all I can say about this as this is such a joy to create. And it's such a joy to know that you all you know, are enjoying it with us. Because, I mean, we would make this regardless of if it was like two people listening to us to be real. If anything, it's like, hey, if we're laughing at ourselves, like yeah, that's, that's great. And I love that we can find like, we've only done a couple of these episodes like I think like with the recently with the Flintwood, and then the Tomarry. And then the Lucy, those were like the three that we actually talked about a fanfic specifically that we both got excited about. And so I love that we can do that when we're getting into I mean, Flintwood was one that isn't new to us, obviously, like it isn't new. But in the other ones like it's like, oh, new ship, we talk about it, and then we're like, wow, we found this fic that like made us love this ship. And so it's really fun that we're able to like talk, talk through that and get excited about it because it's just, I love that we're able to find new things that we love to Read and it's just going in I thought I was like a multi shipper and now I'm like literally just I don't if someone asked me what my OTP was, I don't know what that I would have an answer like I've done there. So
the lines have gotten blurred.
I just, I, I just love so many that it's like on a random day, I'll just be like, I feel like some Ron and Harry today. So I'm just gonna find Ron and Harry Fick are like, Oh, I think I want to do some you know, James slash, you know, Regulus or whatever. Like, it's just, it'll just hit me that I'm like, I'm in this mood, and then I go for it. Or if I'm into a certain like trope or something like that, like usually I can bounce around to different ships and be enjoy it immensely. And I just, I think that has helped me feel even more confident in what we're doing. And the fact that we can keep doing it is that there's I haven't reached a point where I feel like new new chips or new characters aren't interesting. Like anymore, like I get, it's overwhelming the number of things that I'm invested in now and it's just, it's wonderful. It's so exciting.
Well, if you're overwhelmed, now, you're gonna be your mind is going to explode at the game. We're about Oh,
yes. So yeah, so we decided we wanted to have some, some silly fun this like, we look back at our first episode, which kind of like we didn't have a plan. We literally were like, Okay, this is gonna be the first step.
You're exposing, you're exposing how unprepared we were. Like, let's sit down and talk work.
And it did great.
But if you but I'm so embarrassed about how formulae sound because I'm just, I'm clearly you know, relying on because I'm nervous. So when I'm nervous I go all wordy, because it's that's my academic training kicking in. So I'm, like, use 10 words when one will do. Listen back to that episode. And it's not it's not that bad. But I'm like, Oh, Jesus. Pull yourself together. So yep, so we just sat in front of a microphone that day. Yeah. Words happened. And I feel like now, with what we're about to do, we're gonna come full circle. Yeah. Do you wondering do you want to explain what we, what we're about to subject the listeners to?
So we're gonna play a couple of different games. And we're gonna see how these go. We haven't done it yet. So if they're absolute if they're garbage, or just be like, Okay, we're moving on. But, okay. losing it. Okay, so to start, we're going to use a character generator. And so what we're going to do is generate either like probably two characters, or potentially three characters, depending on what we're feeling. And then we will. And then what we're going to do is, in some fashion, we're going to discuss it like a mini episode. So in two minutes, we will discuss this do ship. And yeah, how many episodes is so two minute episodes is what's going to happen. And so then once we reach a point that we're like, I don't know, we'll see. We'll see how much fun it is and how far we get. So our second game is going to be the trope guessing game. So we have my husband made a trope generator that so we'll give us a random trope. And so then we have to try and explain it to the other person to guess using like non synonyms. So like, obviously, you know, ways around the actual name and not just saying a direct like similarity to it and see how well we do. And so we'll get two minute blocks of seeing how many we can guess from the other person within that time period. And then we'll keep track of points and we'll see how well we do with the estimate. So this is going to be silly and weird.
I am going to fail. It is going to be a disaster. I'm just telling you now, like I have no like I don't predict the future. I'm not a prognosticator. I'm not going to do well at guessing tropes but with but you know that's what's going to be great if you want to listen to me crash and burn. I can't wait it's gonna be so exciting. I'm I'm ready to be a catastrophe.
So I guess Care of Magical shippers, the what Express
Do you want to go first or Chalon?
Sure. I can go first and so so content warning, apparently this generator includes creatures.
So we're definitely please look please Before you continue listening, review the review the episode description for all the content warning. Yeah, well, because you could probably
list we could try and list the, whatever the chips are, but just go in open minded to know that it's like we're just here to be silly. It's going to be cracky. So it's Don't you know, take it too seriously, we're just we're just having fun with it. So hopefully it's not anything, you know, upsetting or whatever. So, we'll see what happens. But yeah, but of course, if either of us run into a ship that we're just like, No, we can always we can always generate a new ship if that's what
we want. So, absolutely, yes. Yeah.
Okay. So, okay, ready to get started?
I am so ready. Hit me with it. Okay. So
my first generated pairing, okay, this is wild. Okay, so we have Elvis Severus Potter and Rowena Ravenclaw.
Wow. Oh, okay. No, I can actually see that happening. Because that like he's Hogwarts. Go Stone Age, because they stay the age they were
well, that's how Lena Helene is the ghost Rowena is the founder, not to see if there wouldn't be a founder portrait so like, maybe he interacts with of course, I mean, I being me get into time travel for whatever reason, Elvis sufferance goes back in time, to the founding founding era, and falls in love with Rowena Ravenclaw, for whatever reason, and I, if
I look in my head, like Rowena disappears from her own time, and she travels forward in time, and ends up where our services and our services like, but wait, you're a winner. Ravenclaw you can't be here, right? She's like, well, I'm the only wizard to have ever perfected this particular branch of time travel magic, like
without a time turner, possibly, yeah.
And then they have to spend time together. Because she's like, for some reason, maybe she didn't intend to come to that time when she's like, oh, I need to make sure or travel back. And so they spend a lot of time together to be like researching how she can do it with the materials in that time, whatever. And then they just grow closer as a result of, you know, bonding over over bookstores.
Yeah, I mean, and then we could get into an alternate universe where Elvis is actually a Ravenclaw. Instead of like a slither in or whatever. Like, I mean, technically, if we go off of like the epilogue, we're not given a house. It's given and cursed child, so he could be a Ravenclaw. Who knows. And so then her portrait could be in their tower or, you know, something like that. And he's just
kissing the poultry.
I don't know. I mean, it could be as simple as like, you know, when you have, like, you know, how, like, it's, it's normal to have like, as a younger child to possibly have a crush on like a teacher or something like that. Like, he could just be like, you know, 12 year old Albus just being enamored by the pretty, you know, woman in the portrait who's nice to him or whatever, because maybe he still has issues with his dad or people not seeing him for him. And instead of being you know, Potter's child, so so that's what I was thinking. They're just you know, he portrait interaction doesn't have to be two way. Maybe it's one sided. So there we go. All right. On to the next one.
Hi, Rudolph. So my first generation is Colin Creevey. And Katie Bell.
Oh, interesting. So just
calling live so I'm assuming this is where you where Colin lives? Yeah,
we could do that. Like it could be. I mean, here's another instance where like, it could possibly be a one sided like he's has a crush on her because he's always taking photos of Harry and like at the at the, the tryouts for Quidditch. And maybe he like plays it off as like, Oh, I'm following Harry around, but when he really just has a crush on Katie Bell. Oh,
is it like, but is it like weird still qualified because he's taking photos of Katie's car. So yes, so reads obsessional.
Potentially Yes. Like it could be post Hogwarts. Who knows what maybe she is a professional Quidditch player and then he goes to be a professional photographer for sports and things like that. And so then they I was thinking that tact or like he's a photographer for like a magazine or things like that and maybe it's like a it could be like a conflict enemies to lovers situation where it's like he's doing like all these tabloid, like, you know, like, fake like, exploits like theater. sighs Yeah. And it just oh, man, that could be that would be so funny. So
I could see him like doctoring the photos as well like adding in things and having like, what that's not real.
He's like, he's like wizard Photoshop. thing and like putting himself in the in the photos like she'll be on her broom like with a cloth towel and he's like on the back of her broom looking at the camera smiling like holding, like fake holding waist.
Precisely. Oh, I see this. I didn't know I needed the ship but now I know.
I know. Yeah, so that's obviously something to do with cameras and Quidditch apparently is the foundation of this. Baby. I'm excited for this one. Okay, so I'm getting ready to start the timer. So I have Albus Dumbledore and Lucius Malfoy Oh, yes. Do I mean we know why he's a Hogwarts governor. Obviously. Dumbledore put him on it or Lucius is obviously thirsty for Dumbledore. So he applied and as a governor so and he's definitely doing the like. He's needling and anti Dumbledore because he's that you know doing the the schoolyard bully thing of like, Oh, I gotta be mean to the person that I have a crush on or whatever. So yeah,
right. But it's fake it's theatrics because underneath it all, they are like absolute firecrackers in bed and you have to know it's all about the long like, long on each other. Yes.
Like Lucius has his fingers through Elvis's beard. And Elvis has his fingers through looses hair. Oh my gosh, like I just I could see them and like having like a what if they're just having like a I don't know like just a chill night at home and like they're braiding each other's hair and like
oh my god so just just a quiet little domestic moment over a tea set. You know maybe outburst is pouring the tea. Lucius is braiding his hair. Like I didn't know that I needed this but I I'm I shipped this. I'm for it. And of course Draco would be furious, which is just you know, it's another reason that I need to read it. Like
why didn't Draco is actually Elvis's son.
Wow, what it takes. So he's always the seat horse in this situation.
Possibly, possibly. Like what? Like this is so what if Lucius is the spy instead of Snape? Oh, like he's Oh, wow.
Oh, this is quite this is quite wholesome. Harry Potter and Dean Thomas.
Oh, that's so sweet. Okay, so when it comes to Harry and Dean, I'm thinking that it's like it makes sense because of course, like we'll see other you know, chips like Harry and Ron or that, that friends to lover's trope. And what if Oh, what if? Harry isn't jealous of Dean Virginie, but he's actually jealous of Ginny with Dean.
I exactly. Yeah, I was gonna say like, Jenny is the is the secret. Oh, she's also the secret weapon and bringing the two of them together because Jenny has to realize before either of the two of them, because let's be real, they're both lovely people, but they're both pretty oblivious. So I could see her being matchmaker to the two of them and setting them up. And you know, they have easy access to each other. They share a dormitory. They are you know, they're both Griffin doors. It's, you know, it's easily workable. It's so it isn't like it's not top of my hairy chips list. But now that it's in front of me, I also want to see it because I don't feel like Dean gets enough airtime. Now read it. And he's definitely a character that I want to read more about and see more of so maybe like if I was looking for this ship, I'd look for it from Dean's perspective.
And something that they could mutually connect on is what if, what if Harry is a football fan? Like what if they do love Muggle sports together? And it's something that they connect on because they both come from up to you know, Muggle background in comparison to I think all the other ones Neville and Seamus and and RON are all from at least like heavily magic households. So that yeah, that would be an instance that they could, you know, get together on as well as Oh, and then dean becomes a member of the Quidditch team. So it's there's a lot of interaction that they could have that could happen to lead into a romance of some sort. So
Dean's broom breaks so he has to write the back of Harry's and then
times up. Oh my god, okay, this is okay, okay, so we have Cho Chang and Barty Crouch Jr.
Wow. Wow. Well, I, what if they met the Quidditch World Cup? What if they like, like because Bharti was there secretly, and under the invisibility cloak, but what if he snuck away? And what if she snuck away? Because let's say when the Vela arrived or whatever, and the mascots are on the pitch, he's just like, No, I'm not not digging this, need some fresh air, whatever. And so they're both sort of like, like on the sidelines bumping into each other. Neither of them knows who the other is. And they're just like, caught up in the moment that's what I'm seeing.
What if she's the one she actually is someone who witnesses like when he puts the dark mark into the sky? And then she goes you know, like runs off and it's something that she never tells anyone about because at first she's like, maybe she's following this hot dude you know what I mean? Like she's just like, Oh, who is this mystery dude? Oh, whatever is going along to to you know see what he's what he's about and but but yeah, obviously potentially it would be a Bardi lives situation or once again, you know time travel because we have the cross generation like relationship thing and but but yeah Oh isn't party isn't show cups the dogma Well, what isn't party had can and as a Ravenclaw because they would both I am not sure but I I hear that a lot. A lot of people will say Bharti is a Ravenclaw as as far as in Fannin goes so that's an opportunity where like, somehow Ravenclaw connects them like who knows who knows what that could mean. But hey, same house that's
modeling the tiara. The diagram.
Yep, exactly. Yeah.
So yeah, okay, my next pairing is Kingsley Shaka volt and Igor Cocker off
oh my okay that's definitely a forbidden love because we have an order member and an order and then obviously a death either slash written you know, denounced death either thing. Yeah. Oh, wow. I love I love that. I love Forbidden Love. That's so great.
So I love the idea of Kingsley being around for Eagles trial, and just liking the idea of seeing him in that change chair a bit too much.
Oh, we need to try that at home.
Exactly. Exactly. So you know, I definitely see that being a kink ship. You have to know that I mean, eagles are headmaster at Durmstrang. So you know, some kinky stuff. Kings and Kingsley is all about that, because he spent his day working hard trying to catch dark wizards. And all he really wants to do is catch a very specific dark wizard in compromising
position, potentially a Stockholm Syndrome syndrome situation where Kingsley gets captured. And like Igor is the one who's Oh, you know, his minder or whatever, and then they fall in love and whatever. So that's, you know, that's always that's always a trope that works when it comes to fun. Yeah, so
it's just more proof that I can ship any slash ship. Yes. Yeah, absolutely. I'm prepared to eat my words. I'm prepared to get something really silly in a minute and a half to eat my words and backtrack, but for now, I'm just like,
oh, man, well, you and you would think that they probably didn't go to school together, you'd assume that I go like Igor went to Durmstrang as well, I imagine. Yeah. So maybe, maybe it was a past Triwizard Tournament from back that, you know, the first time someone died. They met each other then so Oh, wow. We'll go with that. Okay, so now it's my turn. Yeah. Right. Yeah. Yeah, let's see. Okay, so this one is a double like, do we want to do it even if we've had a character before? Does it matter? No, we can do I don't think it matters. Okay. So this one is Madame rose Murta and Rowena Ravenclaw.
Wow, rowing that is popular today. That is a really interesting one. I want to know how Roz met is going back in time and want to know if you if you have a specific like, does she does she drink some Mead that that's been altered in some way? And she ends up like the effect of it is so mind boggling that she is transported back to I
well, when it comes to I don't know that we know for sure how old she is like we know that she's attractive and but has been around like she remembers the marauders when they came to her place. So it's like, what if she was someone who like had like some sort of like D aging or was maybe she was one of Yes, yes, something like that or had some sort of ability, maybe, you know, part like she's a part human situation with some creature that helps prolong her life even longer. And she actually knows or went to, you know, new Rowena as a child or something generations ago. I mean, there's a lot of opportunities there. But, but I mean, then obviously, there's the, you know, Madam rosemary, if she went to Hogwarts, depending on what house she was in, it could be another instance of like her crashing on one of the founders or thinking of them as like the perfect partner. And then maybe the way she goes for partners that like look alike or resemble or have traits like Rowena Ravenclaw, or something like that.
The Oh, that's really fun. That is such a fun idea. Also, she could be like Rose Mehta herself, could be an orphan, and just looking for that sort of maternal figure that she never had. And so it could be a kind of a wholesome thing there as well. That eventually she ends up finding this in this really unlikely place. I see that happening as well. Okay, this is another duplicate character do we want to?
We will well, we'll do this. Well, just yeah, just say what it is. And we can either be like, oh, let's do another one or whatever.
It's really weird. Grendel world and Colin Creevey.
Time travel and
this is where I like, I can ship any slash ship. Yeah.
You did say that. You did say that we might reach the point of of doing something. Yeah. All we can say is obviously time travels involved.
Photographs and maybe we know that
what if he has old? What if he's like obsessed with Grindelwald and actually has like newspaper clippings and images like photographs of him like all over his room and stuff like that? Like, I mean, who knows? Maybe that's kind of what inspires him to try and do you know, make his images magical? Because obviously, it's not till he gets his letter that he knows that the wizarding world exists, but after that, I mean, who knows what he could be one of those. I mean, he's very like, obviously super high strung and he I could see him being kind of similar to Hermione in the sense of like, I need to know everything and figure out how to do everything and understand everything and then read up on Dumbledore slash Grendel vaulted found out and learned more about this guy in this character and became just totally obsessed with and so yeah, I don't know. I
don't know. I also see like Colin going back in time in some fashion and dressing like Elvis like to just be like, fulfilling the like to as a sort of a fulfillment of like a history thing. And like being in the moment, like as a dramatic fulfillment, and then But then gala ends up fancy him and things are complicated. Yeah,
very complicated. Wow, we did that. We did that thing. Yeah. Let's see what we got now. Oh, damn. Oh, damn, I am so here for this. I am. So here for this. We have Cornelius fudge, and Percy Weasley. Oh.
That's perfect. We could just leave it at that. It's like it is perfection. I'm done. I just need to say.
I mean, we can all assume and understand where this ship would go. Like obviously Percy is very ambitious, willing to apparently do anything to get places so
and he's getting places he is hoping he is restricted access to some ministry. Booty.
Wow, okay. Yeah, I'll say yeah, we know we know where that would go and it absolutely works and yeah, so we'll we'll leave it at one minute on that one. Yeah, man. That's so fun. Okay, so good. Right.
Next one is Hermione Granger and Barty Crouch Jr.
Now is this Bharti as moody or is this Alright Do you party
I want it to be Bharti as bathtub because as as moody it's a little bit like another bit that's a bit much I mean, he's performed the the unforgivable curses in front of her. You know, maybe she had more of a reaction to that than we previously anticipated law was revealed in the text. And that comes up she she What if she rumbles his poly juice stone have early but in order to but in order to keep everything under wraps and make sure that bowtie, you know, maintains his disguise that a romance blossoms I don't know.
Oh, okay, so this is kind of what if it's the same similar situation to like Hermione discovers that Rita is a anime guess and like, captures her and threatens to tell people but so that she doesn't do anything bad. I don't know what would matter in this case, but like, yeah, she discovers the poly Deus, that it's not really moody that it's a Death Eater trying to do things and then maybe she uses it to some level, but she's able to keep him from putting the plan into action. And like maybe, you know, she becomes, you know, feels bad for him when she hears his story of being like trapped in his house and losing his mother and the way his father treated him, because it's obvious that she hates Barty Crouch Sr, by the way that he treated Winky so I could see her sympathizing and empathizing with him in that regard. So who knows? Like that could be something that they kind of kept in contact throughout later times or things maybe he redeemed himself at a later time and boom, bromance. We can we can, it doesn't make sense. It doesn't have to make sense. But we can.
I mean, this is the ethos of our podcast. Doesn't have to make sense. Oh, but we love it anyway.
Oh, okay. So now we get to go. We get to, I mean, hey, for forgetting what I kind of started on. So this one is Arthur Weasley slash Alastor. Moody.
Wow. I yeah, I shipped that so hard. They're both in the order. They both have experience, you know, fighting dark wizards. Maybe the maybe they're in the Department of Mysteries late at night, you know, somebody slips under an invisibility cloak.
And things happen I think we've talked about before, like, we don't know, like before, he literally is like throwing himself out there and getting like chunks of his face chopped off. And he replaces his eye with a thing. Like he could have been some like really handsome like kid in school, and I'm not sure what his like, I know that, like Arthur and Molly are like 10 years older than the marauders generation. So like they are older. And I'm not sure what his you know, age area is maybe they went to school together and had like some sort of, you know, fling or romance before Mali and something like that, and have remained really good friends through, you know, then with the order and whatnot.
I also really see this part of Arthur that's really wholesome. And it's like, you know, in spite of Alice's grizzled appearance is still like, you know what, I love you anyway. Okay, I have Professor Telone. And Zen affiliates love good.
Okay. Yes. I mean, they're both very eccentric individuals. I could see him absolutely believing all of her nonsense and being really intrigued by her seeing abilities and things like that. And maybe that's where he gets a lot of his stories from, what if he is in contact with her and she supplies insight for the future so he can anticipate and plan stories and then and then that's where he gets his, like, conspiracy theories and stuff, because she'll be like, Oh, it'll come to light later on about you know, such and such things. And so part of the Quibbler is like a she's kind of an in to like it to information even though a very often more often than not, it's there's not really any like Foundation to support it. Yeah. And which is very love. Good. You know what I mean? And yeah, absolutely. And who knows, maybe they went to school together, you know, like maybe they're about the same age and and all of those things and what if she's actually Lunas mother
you on today? Well, I was just gonna say, you know, that they're buying each of the fancy shows and quirky clothes. Like i i could absolutely see it being like gifting is their love language. Like they they're just very extravagant with each other. And I will now I want Luna to be Trillo knees secret child. Yes, absolutely.
to I mean, they probably have matching like radish earrings. And I mean, it's like you just think it is that
I'm who's to say who say they have to stop the accessories at earrings. You have to know that those two are I mean, we know that benefit is his wife was like a big fan of experimental magic. So they they have to be very creative people and I think it could be like, I really think they are like secretly both passionate because, you know, they're, like timid on the outside. So I can see them being like really fiery when they get together that Yeah, so I shipped that one hard. Oh,
oh, My oh my goodness. Okay, you are not ready. You are not ready. Hey, we have Madame Maxime and forenza Oh wow. I mean, the Hagrid episode we talked about frenzy and Hagrid, so why not bring her into the equation? Maybe it's a polyamorous thing, and the three of them are just having a great time and forbidden. Oh, I
love that. I love that. Yes. I mean, there are all sorts of things you could say about that. But I don't think I need to go into exquisite no like you know what's happening. You just there's a party in the forest and everyone's Wait, maybe that's why for NZ shunned from the tribe because they find our friends. He's like, Well, I love them. So I'm gonna be doing my own thing. And who cares what you think I'm living my best life.
Oh, that's so sweet. All right, we'll move on from this one because nothing more needs to be. Alright.
I have a ship that is fire. I'm very excited about this. George Weasley and Cormac McLogan.
Oh, my good.
Muscles. Absolutely. Fantastic. Because Because Cormac comes in in the sixth book, right? Yeah. So he technically he doesn't meet the twins in Hogwarts like, Oh, not that they couldn't have met before that he just tries out for the team the their six year so obviously, he's been at Hogwarts, so they could have known each other previously. Oh, yeah. What if George was the one who was training with him? Like he was waiting for the keeper position to open up and like they were working together. But then George felt like he had to support his brother. And like not, you know, get in between everything, but still was very supportive of his boyfriend. And like, I mean, who knows? Do you know what I mean? So it's just no
i. Yeah, I love that. Well, we know that Maclagan is a member of the slope club, so he has to be reasonably well connected. So maybe I see. I see him trying to like escape a lot of those pure blood ties by getting together with someone like George who is light hearted and aloof. And can you know, meet him behind the broom shed? Yeah, it's all very, you know, there's a lot of catharsis,
I'm gonna and of course, of course we know that like Cormac is very like cocky and kind of full of himself. And maybe he becomes like the first prank when they're like starting their ways, you know, wheezes business and like give him something and he gets the first Canary cream and turns into a canary and he like has resents him for whatever and then ultimately creates you know, an eventual like enemies to lovers thing because he either has a vendetta against George or something like that. So
I am trying very hard not to make a creamed Canary joke
time's up anyway so me now right yeah to you. Let's see.
This is the this is the ship to like, defy all ships. We have what's hot. We have Argus Filch and Tom Riddle, Jr. Riddle. Yeah, so we have a squick
Oh I just couldn't see. I just couldn't see Mrs. Norris being like, what is happening? Oh, guess what's happened to you? What are you doing like that? There has to be some sort of, again, time travel involved here for this to work
well, technically older, like, like Elvis was a teacher when Tom went to school. So who's to say that our guests wasn't in school, or working there? While you know Tom was there? And maybe they connected based on the fact that he like, he loves torture, and then like capital punishment. Initially, like, well, he went he technically probably he wouldn't have gone to school because he was a squib. So he probably started as like, you know, he may be he was working there and whatever and was younger, and then at first Tom hated him because he's like, Oh, the squib or whatever, and then whatnot happens from there, but then maybe he has like skills and, and abilities to do certain things because of his lack of magic that he uses to his, you know, his benefit. Yeah, not so. Yeah.
Well, I was well, I was thinking, you know, he has the quick spell. Course. Maybe he tries one of the spells in the Quick spell course. and something happens to create like accidental time travel magic and then because of that, like he meets Tom and things
what book what book is it that we find the quick spell
that's in Chamber of Secrets?
Okay, okay, so that's like I mean that's pretty early on so obviously like Voldemort is gone at this point so yeah that could you send him to a point where either later on when he's back or previously time is up? That was insanity.
Okay, Draco Malfoy and filius Flitwick
ah dueling champion obviously so he's very you know, obviously very gifted and like charms and dueling and whatever and maybe a timed like we're doing a lot of time travel here but time travel for him to like learn from you know from Flitwick like before everything or who knows I don't know this is this is definitely crack beyond I don't I honestly don't know definitely like a if it's after you know after Hogwarts like of age situation like it definitely is like a would be a fuck you to his parents because like absolutely yeah, like not you know, he's a like part human and whatever and all that stuff and it's just like, I don't know, I just because he's had he's technically has Goblin, but blood doesn t isn't that.
Yeah, he's think he's half goblin. Yeah. Yeah. And well, he has to know like the grin Gods goblins and Draco's in green gots a lot and that's potentially how that could. I don't know
if Draco wants to be the tall one. You know, we have some some significant size difference here. Like he wants to feel powerful and he feels very, the big spoon. He feels very powerful with this with this adorable little man. Oh, man. Oh my god. Okay, well, we'll do it. Okay, oh my okay. Okay, so we have Remus Lupin and Fleur della core.
so she obviously has a thing for wolves but she doesn't know it
Yeah, she she has a liking for like
because she's just like cuz you know you in the book she's like I am you know pretty enough for the both of us. So she you know, she's like, Oh, my husband will be brave with the scars and whatever. And then we have Remus where it's like he's completely covered head to toe and yeah, maybe she scars Oh,
yeah, maybe what if it's like FLIR and Bill and Remus?
Yeah, because what if he like he comes in like maybe talks isn't like never happened or whatever. And obviously alternate universe everyone lives and whatnot and like he's obviously a support system for Bill like after it happens when they're like worried that maybe he's able to transform or it's gonna have some sort of like complications and so then he's like their advocate and helps them through like the first couple months because maybe like I say, like, oh, he likes his meat on the rarer side and you know, things like that. So, yeah, then it just was someone who is like, Oh, he's genuinely concerned and invested and cares for Bill and Fleur sees that and Bill sees that and then yeah, that absolutely could be a thing.
That's a very wholesome ship. Actually, really, I appreciate that. I was expecting you know, we were on a roll with the crap stuff. I got that cuz I can see a lot of like charming domesticity with that as well. And just cuteness so
yeah. Okay, so one last one. Watch it be absolutely insanity.
So okay, so I have Severus Snape and Narcissa Malfoy. Oh,
I love that. Oh, I love that so much. Because definitely, like I could see this could obviously be an infidelity situation, where like, obviously Lucius is focused on power and status and could be very neglectful of his wife as far as like, you know, emotional like needs of like a partner. And he's, like people will headcanon him as like Draco's Godfather so he's been a part of like their family for obviously a long long time. So that you know, growing into something on the side behind closed doors that no one you know knows about and that could be part of the reason why she goes to Snape, you know, to protect Draco because she's like, I know I can trust you to take care of my son and you would do anything to you know, to protect him. So that yeah, because it's like because he would love him as a godson, but also, like, you know, be potentially in love with Draco's mother. So yeah,
yeah. And it's definitely coming out of a place of vulnerability for them both. And this allows them to be more open with each other, and let their walls down that for for each other more than they would so with anyone else, because they're both characters that have to present really strong front. So with when, when they're around each other, and they can just be themselves. It is much of a sort of a personal release as anything else, you know, it could be romantic, but I also just see it as an opportunity for the both of them to just be relaxed around each other. And to not really have to keep that guard up all the time.
Yes. Wow. That we did a lot. That was a lot. That was fun
was really fun. Like, we could do that for hours. Yes. So
many, many episodes. Yeah, we I mean, we did it for almost an hour. Wow, that was amazing. So now we're gonna pivot to something different. We brought it up before so we're going to be trying to guess as many tropes explained by the other person it within two minutes, and then we'll keep track of points and see who wins at the end.
do you want me to describe to you first you want me to start or do you want to start?
I feel I feel like you started last time. So I should start but I'm very nervous. I don't know. I don't know how this is gonna go. This is probably gonna be terrible. Bear with me listeners while I attempt to. Okay, okay. So here goes. Okay, so this so I know exactly what this is. That's the first good thing. But I Yes. So, this is a very common trope. It happens I will say after a period of common action has already happened. And it usually involves a lot of characters getting together post trauma posts. So, let's say like, like the the the the nastily exhausting wizarding tests have happened,
okay. Okay. So, so, um, oh, so is it eighth year? It is. Okay, next one.
Okay. So this is, how do you how do you even describe this? So it's
going really well, everybody?
Yeah. It's just it's trying to find an analogy that doesn't use any of the words that because right okay. So, so there are spoons, and there are, there are spoons and they are not, they don't fit into each other easily.
So, there is a, there is a grander spoon, and there is a there is a spoon and a spoon of diminished proportion.
Okay, so So I think the points should go off of how many we can get the other person to guess like how efficient we are? Because otherwise Yes, like, it takes forever to try and like, figure out well, we'll, we'll see how it goes. Okay, so it's so hard not to
use the words.
I know. I'm not good,
Tony. Anyway, yeah,
be great. Okay, so Well,
did you have a guest for that? What for
that? The spoons? bigger spoon. They don't fit.
Because yeah, so So what I said was just to recap, was that one that there is a grander spoon and a spoon of significantly diminished proportion. Do you have any idea? No. Okay. All right. Let's just move on.
Well, yeah, well, we'll leave it and then yeah, because if I get it, then we'll put up Oh, so it's um, so it's like, if two characters are not necessarily two characters, one character becomes different from what they are.
Oh, like creature thick.
So So one would be able to go up the other stairs in Gryffindor Tower, or is it body
close? Oh, genders? Yes, correct. Correct. Oh, okay. Excellent. Okay, so this one would be like, Well, it'd be like Harry and Ron or Harry and Hermione. Like falling, falling.
Feelings are involved. And
Not like if if Draco and blaze, you know? Oh,
it's friends to friends. Excellent.
Okay, yeah. Oh, okay, so this person works in a Muggle profession and it's a common trope that people like.
Is it coffee shop?
Yes it is. Okay. Oh, this is we love this. It's what happens when we do mayhem? We make things very blank. It's wild.
It crushes smoked crack. Oh, excellent. Yes, yes. Well we do smoke as well. Yeah, exactly.
Okay, disturbing stories up times up. You have a
dark fake? Yes. Okay, so I completely failed, as I knew that I would so so the one that the one that you didn't get it was by the way we're size difference, where? How would you? How would you describe size difference without mentioning size or difference at all? Like
beggars. Spoon the lesser because you couldn't do little spoon
you this was what I was gonna do.
Oh, wow. Okay, that was great.
Okay. So this is where things are uncomfortable. A lot of characters having to deal with a lot of baggage. Things are uncertain. They're up in the air. They don't know what they're going to do. They are coming up against a lot of very difficult thing. Yes. Okay, this is to do with characters that have happened after the trio happens.
Oh, next generation? Yes. Correct.
Okay. Okay. This has to do with finding and collecting all three of a particular thing in order to achieve a
master of death. Yes.
Okay, okay. Okay, so this describes the kind of thing where things start out intense and moody. But then they move to a place where characters are a lot more cared for. Nurtured.
Hurt comfort. Yes. Okay.
Correct. Okay, so, so this describes like, two people in Diagon Alley, they both have the ones out that hunting for dark wizards. They Oh,
are our partners are casement? Yes. Nice. Yeah. Okay. Okay.
Okay. This describes the magical process of becoming older, often to make certain ships work together. Um, time travel. So it will often involve like taking a potion or oh, oh,
aging up. Aging up? Yes. Correct. Okay, okay. Okay, up times up. So there we go. So how many did I guess for you?
Awesome. So I skipped one. And we did one of those before, so I'm going to count them up. So 1234567 Lucky you
go one last time, and now you're at seven. Fantastic.
I had a lot of ground to make.
Yeah, okay. I'm so sorry.
Okay, yeah. So I'm not gonna tell you what we missed in case you correct against it, then then have to do it.
And, of course, watch me know what something is and try and explain it to you and you're just feeling and I don't understand what I'll just say. You'll just say, Is this the one that yeah, hey, that's allowed. If you want to say pass, it's just good. So I obviously didn't do a good job.
Okay, that's fine. There's gonna be things I don't know. It's fun.
So this is like classic like Harry and Draco like a really popular trope. When the you know,
enemies to enemies to lovers. Yeah, good.
Um, okay, so this one is like, so someone who was like, like if a teacher
is this like, age difference? Yeah, like
so so let's lesser than, like, becoming lesser as a
big small thing.
No, so like the opposite. It's the opposite of a trope You already gave me. i That's probably cheating. Oh, aging down age. Yes. D aging. Okay, so this one is like would be like serious and hairy or like Draco and Albus Severus like this relationship.
So intergeneration so like, Yeah, I know what it says. But I don't know the word like multigene like close. What's the word? cross cross? Jen? Yes. Is it? Yes, yes.

to do here? It's well, we're almost at two hours so we probably should wrap it
but I'm glad we only played two games because I wasn't sure if two games would be enough. Yeah, but I forgot that it was so well. I have one that I think that you're going to enjoy and we can potentially end on perfect so I have run Weasley, Severus Snape and Igor Cocker.
Oh my goodness. Okay, so obviously Ron had a terrible time at the Yule Ball. Because he couldn't go with the person he wanted to, which obviously was Severus Snape and Eiger Karkos. was jealous of Hermione, because Crum was like I gored adjacent so it was like this. You know this twisted
you knows way to get to ego.
So it's obviously pining Ron, desiring these two. dark haired, brooding You probably lose Evilish men and that's what he's into. And so
he's got both of the dark marks. And he's like, Yes, I need to get me one of those.

This actually went for there was planning, there was some planning but also were like we are going in like not sure how and if this is going to work well, and I think it went pretty great. Like that was that was a lot of fun.
It went a lot better than I thought it was gonna go I fully expected to crash and burn outs game wasn't too bad. Yeah, there were a couple of moments where it was like, oh, yeah, what are words?
