I’m gonna ship you guys.
I’m okay with this but she has a boyfriend so it may be kind of awkward.
Do we get a cute ship name? That’s important too.
Natica. Which also sounds like an alien world.
You are brilliant!
I know you do. But this will start shipping wars. Soon people will be divided between Team Erica and Team Karly.
Team Erica. Definitely.
Or. Team Karlica. It could happen.
Oh I hadn’t even thought of shipping wars! Fantastic. This could be fun!
What’s worse is now people are going to start the fic and of course some rebel is just going to ship Karlica and leave Natica and Natly out of it entirely. See? Erica has already started!
LEAVE ME BE I SHIP WHAT I WANT.
I think Natica will be the most likely choice since you know each other in person, but that makes me a strong underdog for either ship because I’ll have that whole foreign mystery thing in my favor.
OMG! Fanfic is a thing I want now. Maybe. I agree that you have the whole mystery thing working in your favor. Oh dear, what have we created? Who do you think will jump on board with this?
Hey, you two are the writers. I expect fanfic of the juiciest sort.
I’m still on the fence about who I ship the most. Maybe I’ll just be a disruptive third party you both have feelings for and that is the primary obstacle in the way of your relationship.
Erica does have a boyfriend…
That’s why it’s called fan fiction.
Or maybe Natalie is subtly trying to say that she and I belong together since you are clearly in a conflicting relationship, Erica.
That’s exactly what I’m trying to say! Karly knows me!
You bet I do.
I feel betrayed.
