I'm relatively okay with most ships as long as I'm comfortable with the person I'm roleplaying with. That said, some of my most successful ships have been one that's just.. pure, stupid fluff. And the other was a sadistic/masochist combo, lmao.
Though if I had to say what I love, it's likely equal parts fluff and angst. Or even more angst than fluff, I like the drama, the feelings of hardship and the pain that my characters endure. Wondering if it's worth it and maybe it is and maybe it isn't. But give me drama, give me feeling other than just the rose-tinted glasses anyday.
Was thinking about it today, so I guess I'll post it here.
I love hateships played straight. But the hateship, for me, can't be hate for any ol' reason. The hate stems from being on opposing sides of a conflict with incredible stakes, with both characters believing strongly in their side (hero and villain, wars, rebellions, etc.). While there's an undeniable attraction between the two characters, their feelings are always subsumed into this conflict that is larger than themselves, and the relationship always exists underneath its shadow. Rather than being soft with one another, they take out their fear and anger and sadness on the other person, like a pressure-release valve, then return to their respective sides. They're together because it's thrilling, and maybe just to see if they can bend the other person to their will. Even if both characters survive, they never end up together, because they don't love each other.
To say the least, the relationship is toxic and self-destructive. In my preference though, it's rarely abusive, because there's a lack of one person clearly holding the power in the relationship, though power dynamics may shift from time to time, and though they're very much fighting for ultimate control.
(A variation on this I also enjoy is only one person knowing they're on opposing sides; for example, a spy and a target. While whatever feelings there are are mutual, Spy still fully intends to carry out their mission, and Target does not see reason and elope.)
Basically, my favorite hateships are the ones where the characters' loyalties to their convictions are stronger than the bond they have to each other. That sort of festering relationship that leaves a bad taste in the mouth when morning comes.
