[B]: Can I say hoe on this channel?
[A + K]: Yes.
[B]: I’m a hoe. [Kav]: Hello you gorgeous individuals, it’s Kav
here and today I am here with [Adriana]: Adriana from perpetualpages and [Brody]: Brody from ettubrody.
[K]: And we are here at booknetfest, as this backdrop points out – very emphatically points out, to do a enbytastic collab video…cuz we’re all enby,
that’s the joke. I was really struggling to come up with an idea and then Brody
was like “oh we should do rip it or ship it like Rhiannon just did” – I will
link their video below ‘cuz everyone loves Rhiannon and they’re also enby so
they fit the theme of this video. I was like what if we did that…but made it
sapphic? So instead of just rip it or ship it because that’s boring; we
don’t need heterosexuality in here, we’re doing a sapphic rip it or ship it. Now all
of these characters are not canonically queer, but they’re queer in our hearts. Now I have eighteen names in here, so that gives us about nine rounds. I know
Adriana has read all of the books.
[A]: I hope so. [K]: I have read all but one of the books, and Brody has read some of the books.
[B]: I’m working on it, okay!? With that, we’re gonna start ripping and shipping. [A]: Leah from Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda or Leah on the Offbeat, [B]: and Abby from Simon vs. the Homosapiens Agenda or Leah on the Offbeat. [A]: I feel like we have to ship it. Like, Becky Albertalli does so we should, right? [K]: Yeah, they’re canonically a thing so…
[A]: They are canonically a thing and if you think that’s a spoiler, you suck.
[K]: Yeah, ship it.
[A]: It’s unanimous, we’re shipping it. [K]: Estrella from Wild Beauty
[A]: and Alice from Let’s Talk About Love. [B]: Ooooh, I don’t hate that.
[A]: I don’t hate that. I like the
idea of an interracial relationship between two people who are not white
[K]: same [A]: and who are not allonormative so…
[K]: That’s true. [B]: I like this. [A]: I like it.
[K]: I like it. I feel like they have, like, similar personalities, too.
[A]: Yeah. [K]: Like, they’re both kind of, like,
quiet, more introverted, so I feel like they could get along.
[A]: I like this. I’m, like, getting inspired.
[K]: Where’s the fanfiction!? [A]: Yesss! We’ll call it “Wild Love.”
[B]: Yes, there we go.
[K]: I love it! [B]: I like this one a lot.
[K]: We’re gonna very happily ship this.
[A]: Ship it. [B]: So we have Blanca from Blanca y Roja. [A]: I have Roja from Blanca y Roja!
[B]: They’re sisters!
[K]: Rip it! Rip it! Do not ship it. [A]: No no no no, absolutely not
[K]: We don’t stan incest.
[A]: This is a big ol’ no.
[K} We’re gonna, we’re gonna rip it. [K]: Starr from The Hate U Give
[A]: and Sana from Tell Me How You Really Feel. [K]: You haven’t read this one.
[B]: I haven’t
[A]: But you need to.
[B]: It’s on my radar, though. [B]: I can’t see Starr being with a cheerleader, though.
[A]: I can’t remember if her boyfriend was
like a jock or not. [B]: He kind of was, wasn’t he?
[A]: He kind of was.
[B]: KJ Apa played him – he has to be a jock. [K]: Sana’s also not, like, a typical cheerleader. Again, like, I like the idea of two women of color [A]: Yes.
[K]: and I feel like there are similarities in their upbringing, you know? Especially with Sana also being Muslim.
[A]: I’m not against it
[K}: I’m leaning towards ship it. [B]: I don’t hate it.
[A]: Okay! We don’t hate it.
[K]: We don’t hate it. That’s all we’re looking for! [B]: Hannah from I Wish You All the Best
[A]: and I have Lei from Girls of Paper and Fire. [A]: I thought Hannah had a really cute
relationship with her husband and I don’t want to break that up.
[K]: Had you pulled Wren, I might have shipped it, but I think the Lei and Hannah
might be too similar in personality. [A]: Yeah, that too.
[B]: There needs to be, like, some kind of dynamic going on. [A]: They both seem like girls who could take down the empire.
[K]: Maybe they could be best friends. [B]: Okay, yeah.
[B + A] We friend-ship it. [B]: I’m taking a second, okay? I’m hijacking the video.
[A]: No, please, please! Zoom in on Brody’s face right now. [B]: Everyone talks about how they want sapphic, like, f/f rom-com books – why can’t we get, like, a lesbian version of “Love, Simon!?” Read Nina LaCour. Read Nina LaCour.
[A]: Yes. Yes! She did it! [K]: Emi from Everything Leads to You
[B]: and Rachel from Tell Me How You Really Feel. [A]: Oooooh, interesting. Thinking of them together doesn’t generate any, like,
[A]: Yeah. [B]: And I feel like if they did get together they would be, like, over within a month.
[A]: I say rip it.
[K]: I think we’re gonna rip it. [A]: Wren from Girls of Paper and Fire
[B]: Circe from Circe. [K]: I haven’t read Circe. Tell me about
[B]: Circe is, like, the world’s first, like, magic user – sorceress. She, kind of, gets, like, isolated to this island and whatever travelers are lost – they, like, come to her island and she turns them into…
[A]: into, like, whatever she feels reflects [them]. It’s usually people who are, like, trying to take advantage of her ‘cuz they’re like “here’s this woman alone” but she is–like, actually has all the
defenses in the world…
[K]: But, like, that’s so similar to Wren, too. [K]: So I feel like the same way Lei and Hannah could take over the world, I feel like Wren and Circe could, and I feel like I’d let them.
[A]: That is true.
[B]: Madeline Miller’s Circe is, like, one of the most feminists depictions of
anything in Greek mythology. [K]: Based on that description I’m gonna have to say ship it.
[A]: Yeah, I’ve been swayed. Ship it, for sure. [K]: Badass women [A + K]: taking over the world –
[K]: that’s all I’ve ever wanted. [K]: Here we have Evelyn from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo
[A]: and Xiomara from The Poet X. [K]: This is another relationship where I feel like they might be a little too similar. [A]: That would be like if Evelyn and her were the same age.
[B]: Evelyn, like, at the start of the book when she was, like, fifteen
[A]: Okay, okay. They’re both so headstrong that I don’t think it would be a good relationship. [K]: Yeah, I think we’re gonna have to rip it.
[A]: Yeah, for sure. [B]: Ava from Everything Leads to You
[A]: and Celia from The Seven Husbands of Evelyn Hugo. [A]: Again, challenging dynamic!
[B]: Once again, if Celia and Ava were…
[K]: If Celia was age-appropriate! [K]: I see so many similarities between them again.
[A]: That’s true.
[B[: They’re both super headstrong. They’re both very, like, “I’m gonna get what I want,” you know what I mean? [K]: But, like, I love them both so much as love interests that, like, I want to ship it. [A]: What are you Celia’s, like, top traits? I
think she’s very vocal about her needs – like, she needs to be loved, she needs attention,
which is fine. That’s good. [B]: She’s a water sign. Ava is a fire–yeah, she’s a Sag. A Sag, 100%. [K]: Okay. So maybe they both have enough of a parallel to work. [B]: I don’t think would be bad.
[A]: No, I don’t think it would be bad. [K]: They might crash and burn, but they’d both get fame out of it. [B]: Fake-dating. Fake-dating trope.
[A]: Yes, fake-dating.
[K]: Yes! Okay. [A]: Okay, so, ship it I guess.
[K]: We’re gonna ship it. If Celia was age-appropriate
[A]: and living in this day and age, thank you. [B]: So, fake ship.
[A]: We fake-ship it. [K]: Well, that’s that – now we have a stack of
paper on the ground. This was fun. I had a blast, I hope you guys did too.
[A]: I did, too. Yeah.
