Queerplatonic ships!


Recommended Posts

One of the many joys of being aro is discovering queerplatonic ships.

So, what are some queerplatonic ships you like? I personally love Denji and Power from Chainsaw man and Hilda and Claude from FE3H as queerplatonic partners. I headcanon them all as aro besides Denji but I could definitely see an aro headcanon.

Legolas & Gimli, LotR, all the way. Elves & Dwarves, at odds since creation, because of their creation, & Legolas & Gimli go

Spoiler

from suspicious hatred to let's travel middle earth together forever & because the elves were supposed to leave middle earth & go back to the sacred undying lands (no outsiders allowed) to literal immortality, Legolas just puts Gimli on a boat & sails over like this is my emotional support dwarf. You can't send him back he's medically necessary

. Ultimate QPR for me.

IzuOcha (Izuku and Ochako from MHA) is a ship that I would like to headcanon as a QPR. I just keep thinking I don't really want their ship to be romantic or sexual.

Finn and Jake from Adventure Time! In this iteration they are brothers, so that is more of a familial love but it is revealed that

Spoiler

they reincarnate time and time again and in every incarnation they find each other and become best friends

Maybe Klaus and Camille from the Originals. Before I knew I was aro I was shipping them, but I didn't want hem together before the end of the show because for me, if they started to date, it would mean the end of their relationship... Now I get that I like them together, but not as romantic partner.

Anne and Diana from Anne with an E. They really are written with this deep friendship, and for Diana it seems to matter even more than her romantic one (I also headcanon her as aro, so...).

Joan and Sherlock from Elementary - the whole show is centred on their relationship, their deep commitment to each other and the way their lives are inextricably linked. The show actually explores each of them dabbling in romance and dating (not with each other), but ultimately it never works out because their lives aren't suited to 'conventional' romantic relationships. It's not perfect, but in my eyes it is some of the best QPR rep! They care about each other so much and it's not romantic or sexual 😍

And simply the fact that this is a show where the two main characters, a cishet man and a cishet woman, do not fuck each other and have no romantic tension throughout all seven seasons is groundbreaking 👌

I don't particularly care for QP ships, but I think Saiki & Mera from The Disastrous Life of Saiki K is perfect for it. A lot of people headcanon the protagonist as acearo (sometimes aplatonic), and canonically Mera is one of the few people he actually tolerates (She's a waitress who can make his favourite dessert perfectly, he starts getting to know her better after this).

Ohhh I've never really had any QP ships before now. 100% QP ship Claude and Hilda from 3H too, I love them so much. I think Reimu and Marisa from touhou as well I think.
