I know I've done something like this before but I'm super blocked on fic bored so I stole this from tumblr (and altered it slightly, mostly for clarity).

Pick 10 ships without reading the questions, then answer.

My ships:
  1. Bruce Wayne/Selina Kyle
  2. Klaus/Caroline Forbes
  3. Draco Malfoy/Hermione Granger
  4. Thor/Jane Foster
  5. Neal Cassidy/Emma Swan
  6. Joey Tribbiani/Rachel Greene
  7. Fitzwilliam Darcy/Elizabeth Bennet
  8. Angel/Cordelia Chase
  9. William Turner/Elizabeth Swan
  10. Stiles Stillinski/Lydia Martin

1. Do you remember the episode/scene/chapter you started shipping 6?
I started shipping these two so slowly. I remember, after I'd stopped watching the show regularly, my friends talked about Joey/Rachel happening and where the hell that had come from. I thought it sounded crazy but sometime around Emma's birth I started loving this ship. They seemed like such a perfect fit. The core of the show was always Rachel's growth as a person. The whole gang showed her how to be an adult but with Joey she finally got the chance to relax as an adult in a way we didn't get to see her do before. Likewise, when Joey was in love with Rachel he got a chance to grow past his comic relief role.

2. Have you ever read fanfiction about 2?
Not enough. I keep looking but it's incredibly hard to find a plot I enjoy for these two that doesn't involve a triangle. :P

3. Has a picture of 4 ever been your wallpaper/icon/theme?
No. Shame on me.

4. If 7 were to suddenly break up today, what would your reaction be?
Initially shock at them being alive still. Then laughing because they'd get back together soon enough. (Basically in these circumstances they'd be Spike and Cordy in Supernatural.)

5: Why is 1 so important?
I saw Batman Returns from the backseat of my parents' car (I'm pretty sure it was the second movie in a double feature and they expected me to fall asleep after the more child-friendly one). I fell in love with these two right away and never looked back. It helped that the Batman series of the 90s shipped it too, giving me plenty of fuel. This was one of my very first ships and it actually became endgame, which I never dreamed was possible, pretty much cementing them in my heart.

6: Is 9 a funny ship or a serious ship?
Serious. They have their funny moments, being a Disney ship, but they've been tragic from the very beginning - separated first by class, then distance, and finally by magic.

7: Out of all of your ships listed which ship has the most chemistry?
I'm sorry to all of the other ships but it all comes back to that scene in "Waiting in the Wings." Angel/Cordy win hands down.

8: Out of all of the ships which ship has the strongest bond?
Dammit, Angel/Cordelia! Yep, them again. They're bound together by the visions, obviously, but more than that, she's his humanity. Nothing's ever gonna beat that.

9: How many times have you read/watched 10’s canon?
One and almost-a-half times. I watched most of season 1 twice (all but episode one, which I missed on my first run-through) and season 2 only once. I'm thinking I'm gonna do a rewatch come the new year though. :)

10: Which ship has lasted the longest?
Historically? Darcy/Elizabeth. Canonically? Will/Elizabeth. In my heart? Bruce/Selina.

11: How many times, if ever, has 5 broken up?
Once. Getting them back together is gonna be horrible. I just know it.

12: If the world was suddenly thrust into a zombie apocalypse, which ship would make it out alive?
Klaus/Caroline (sort of, they are vampires after all). I actually have a detailed headcanon crossing over TVD with The Walking Dead so I've thought about this too much. The infection can't beat a vampire's immunity so they'd have plenty of (disgusting) food to eat and even though a lot of the humans are using wooden weapons, they're all aiming for the head instead of the heart.

If you want to be technical and say only humans can "make it out alive"... Stiles and Lydia. Stiles would Shawn of the Dead his way through the whole thing and Lydia would have a cure figured out in within the first week. But damn do I want to see Emma and Neal in a zombie apocalypse now.

13: Did 7 ever have to hide their relationship for any reason?
I think they might have kept their engagement a secret for a day or so just out of propriety but otherwise no. They spent much more time hiding their feelings.

14: Is 4 still together?
Yes! It's long distance but they are together!

15: Is 10 canon?
[laugh-crying as a montage of Stiles' Lydia-pain flashes before my eyes]

16: If all ten ships were put into a couples Hunger Games, which couple would win?
Klaus is technically unkillable but Caroline isn't and Batman's on this list. No one beats Batman.

17: Has anybody ever tried to sabotage 5?
August/Pinocchio obviously. He said himself he didn't think Neal was good for Emma and, without any surrounding context, I think he only sent the postcard because he'd said he would, not because he truly wanted to. (I don't think Pinocchio's bad. I just think he takes his job as Emma's protector too far because of all the time he spent being a bad boy.)
Neal too though. Granted, I don't think he had all the information (even without Henry) but he still walked away and it's gonna be hell watching him make up for that.

18: Which ship(s) would you defend to the death and beyond?
Not all of them, I'm sad to say. There are several ships up there I can understand not working out or even not shipping at all. So: Bruce/Selina, Joey/Rachel, Darcy/Elizabeth, Angel/Cordy, Will/Elizabeth.

19: Do you spend hours a day going through 3’s tumblr tag?
No, but I used to follow enough people who shipped it to give me all the best stuff from the tag.

20: If an evil witch descended from the sky and told you that you had to pick one of the ten ships to break up forever or else she’d break them all up forever, which ship would you sink?
Draco/Hermione. I love them a lot but I also know my love comes from fandom and ship-convenient interpretations of events. So (assuming it's canon) I think this evil witch would be breaking up two people who honestly wouldn't want to be together.
