Sheldon and Penny do NOT have a “sibling-like” relationship. At least no more so than any other famous couple on TV has…. like for instance Luke/Lorelai and Jim/Pam and even though they are not a “couple” yet, TONS of fans of the mentalist root for Jane and Lisbon to hook up at some point, and they have a very “playful” relationship.
I would not imagine someone who thinks of his friend as “like a sister” would intentionally look at her butt when dressing her and grab her boob as well, and YES he knew it was not her arm, it was the sake of comedy, I realize but none the less, he knew it and he didn’t let go right away even when she says, it was still a few seconds.
Also they are “sibling-like” but he asks her on a date?? AND they pretend to be like a “old married couple” no siblings I know would do this stuff. Just because they care about each other and tease each other doesn’t mean they are like siblings, it just means, they are good friends who care about each other, plain and simple. That is a GREAT basis for a solid relationship.
Regardless of what you think of them as a couple, please stop throwing reasons like this at us Shenny fans to try to make us feel stupid or mock us. Just let us be and ship who we want. We can give you a 100 reasons why they should be together and a 100 more why Lenny and Shamy shouldn’t, but most of us, are not like that. We are not out to get at other ships, so why do it to us?
We are not crazy, we are not “seeing things” we are seeing the faces they give each other and the actions that speak louder than words, the real love between them, also the facial expressions, siblings would so not give each other those types of looks. She practically melts smiling at him sometimes. Its adorable, we love them and we just love our ship, we are not going anywhere, regardless of what the show throws at us. We are a strong, hopeful, group, we may be on a different ship than you, but we will be with the show til it ends. So get used to it.
This is by far one of the silliest reasons I have heard for why Shenny would not work. I just had to rant about it because it was driving me nuts seeing it all over the place today.
On a final note, happy 2012 everyone
I’ve put the parts I loved the most in bold (I swear I could have put everything in bold xD) Well, well, well. I’m not going into that shipping stupid war thing because I don’t want to, I find it extremely childish and useless because everyone has its own opinion about who’s the best for Sheldon and Penny and we’ll never agree. At first, it made me mad when a non-shenny shipper was throwing stupid reasons at my face as to why Sheldon and Penny are not meant to be together. Now, I don’t care because hey, you can like whatever ship you want. It takes all kinds to make a world. It would be boring if everyone loved the same things. So yeah, the non-shenny shippers have every rights not to like Sheldon and Penny. As long as I have every rights not to like Lenny and Shamy, that’s ok for me =)
I find it weird that people think that Sheldon and Penny could have a sibling realtionship. As you said, ilovelovelovejimparsons, there are many reasons as to why they are so not sibling-like. I won’t tell them again because you already said it =) I just want to say that Penny and Sheldon have a wonderful relationship. They trust each other, they care about each other. Sheldon has done so many things for her that were so un-Sheldon-like. He did things for her he would never have done for someone else. And most importantly, there is reciprocity. <3 And THAT makes their relationship really amazing because its foundation is solid.
I never saw a “brother-sister” aspect in their relationship so I find it very weird to hear people say they have a sibling relationship. Sometimes I feel like we don’t watch the same show xD But anyway, I do understand that each human being doesn’t perceive the same thing his/her neighbour is feeling. So well, let’s hope every shipper will bury the hatchet in 2012. Let’s ship in peace people. We all love the same show <3
Sheldon’s hugs to all the TBBT shippers! And a lot of kisses to my Shenny ones, I love ya!
I like the well worded reasons people have for this ship.
