Half the fun of “shipping” a fictional couple seems to be coming up with the couple name, and the Lost Girl fandom has more than its fair share of creative ones. Along with our guest Kris (@krisgen), we discuss some couples that have multiple names and offer some suggestions for couples whose names are a little unclear.
Bo and Lauren
The Bo and Lauren pairing had been branded Doccubus for sometime, but Bo’s drunken phone call with Lauren in “Fae-ge Against the Machine” introduced BoLo into the mix. (By the way, if you don’t know what a bolo tie looks like, here you go.)
Bo and Tamsin
Bo and Dyson
We’ve only heard of DyBo. Are there any other versions people use?
Dyson and Lauren
While Stephanie thinks Wolfpants is a cute name, she suggests Wolfdoc for better parallelism. But if you think of Wolfpants as a combination of “wolf junk” and “hotpants,” then JunkPants might be another option. Or HotJunk? Any takers? No? OK.
Tamsin and Lauren
Stephanie thinks Copdoc can be confusing because Dyson and Hale are also cops, so the name doesn’t make it clear that it’s Tamsin people are shipping with Lauren. We suggest adding a Valkyrie reference to the name.
