Everyone knows how Severus loved Lily, how Lily loved James, how Harry kissed Ginny, how Ron and Hermione danced into the sunset.

Everyone knows that Amos and Lily could have dated, that Sirius and Remus might have experimented, that Draco and Ginny might've shared the moonlight.

These ships sail proudly. Tall masts, a thousand seamen.

But there are other ships, lost ships, forgotten, dusty ships. Ships never taken from the boatyard. Ships that never see the sea. The improbable, the ridiculous, the disinteresting.

These are the ships without sails. The romances scorned, ignored and swept away.

They have their own qualities, their own stories; they have a right to see the light of day. We shall set them onto the ocean. Sail, ships, sail!

The canon battles and the clichéd stories get tiring, but browsing the lists of ships out there never gets old. This collection is due mainly to the overactive imagination of the fandom as a whole.

This scattering of drabbles is cowritten by Angel (WinglessFlight) and Sara (Insanguinare). We’re having a lot of fun browsing the UnknowableWiki for ships and writing them together. We beseech you to understand that not all of these ships are canon, and we don’t need you to tell us this. Read, and keep your mind open to what could have been.

Feel free to request a ship, but remember that we like to tell the stories that have never seen the light of day.
