@KTC: 'Die for our ship', yes?
And I'm not exactly hunting for shipping subtext per se, but I agree with D_A. Sometimes the writer allows two characters to have suggestive interactions- but although one (or both) parties have hidden/selfish/non-romantic motives to do so, such details can't really be shown on screen- and the viewers would probably interpret it differently.
About how I personally like my pairings... I'm honestly not certain how my brain works with shipping. I'm not overly excited with romance, and I loathe overly fluffy pairings. I tend to dislike canon pairings (or fan-preferred couples) for no real reason- despite the writer's attempts to avoid/parody normal pairing cliche. Sometimes I randomly ship two characters who doesn't seem likely to be a pairing, and sometimes they actually end up together for real. Sometimes I see another fan shipping unlikely pairing, and I just sorta go along with it.
@Kirroha: Same here. If the villain have to reform, or the hero becoming evil, the shift must not be too sudden like Dameon and Rhen in Aveyond 1. Their change of views/character should at least be implied through interaction with the other character or inner monologue.
