No.. not shippers... Sippers.
I'm creating a new term.
(I don't think it's been said before...)
Anyway, Sippers. It's the shipper you love but never want to happen.
This may be because
1) You enjoy the tension way too much.
2) The show would jump the shark if the "sipper" ever came to be.
3) Any other reason you would find fit.
And the name fits too.... The word 'sip' means to drink (a liquid) a little at a time; take small tastes of.
Let's use an example.
One of my favortie sipper examples....
Sara and Grissom from CSI.
In theory, they would make a superb couple.
But at the same time, it ruined CSI when they did.
I stopped watching after that bullcrap started =/
Because for the longest time, I would watch CSI, and I would say to myself, in my head: "Here's a prime time show that doesn't have an ulterior motive. Here's a prime time show that does not have the two leads get together."
But no, because they can never have a prime time show without romance being one of the major themes!
Here are some icons I've posted in other entries, but because I cleaned up and deleted all the old entries, I'll post only my favorite ones I've made.
