Hazel/Primrose Naming
« on: March 11, 2014, 09:41:23 AM »
Okay, so time to discuss the naming of Hazel/Primrose, the series' first official couple! So far, we have:

Starship/Starshipping: The relationship started developing in "Thank You Stars." Myrkin
Stareship/Starshipping: When they first met, Hazel and Primrose paused for a while to stare into eachother's eyes. [Myrkin]
Parentship/shipping: Hazel/Primrose is the only pair seen truly rearing kits. [Myrkin]
Autumnshipping: Hazel and Primrose's colors look like trees in the fall together. [Indi]

I have another name for this pairing: Parentship. In tv-series they are the only one who have kittens (at least on screen). Well... Strictly speaking, Marigold and Hickory had their own children too, but it was in only one episode of second season and after than they were never seen again... Wait a minute... What in Frith's name happened to M/H kittens?!  :blink


EDIT:

I watched part of the episode in which Woundwort and Vervain come to Redstone. Hickory actually mentions babies, so I guess they are alright, just not shown to us. In this case H/M could be called Parentship too, but then again Hazel's and Primrose's kittens show up far more often and we actually see H and P doing some parenting. Besides, they were first to have children. ;)

Good one, good one. ^^ I'll add it!

I also have one. I'm liking Autumnship, since Prim's colors next to Hazel's remind me of leaves in the fall.
