And yes, this ship has sailed. It's just too cute. And the name I decided on was Rockshipping - since they met, fighting over a rock. <3
The way it works out, in a story sense, is Rudder immediately took a shine to Marsha, from the moment he fought her, really. And even though she was irked at him on first sight, she took a shine to him after she was caught. Then he offered to help her train to get up to level. And both of them are pretty straight-shooters, open individuals, and after a while of training and fighting together, they just fell in love. I'm so happy I found a girlfriend for Rudder. <3 How it happened probably went down like this -
Rudder - "You know, Marsha, you're pretty amazing."
Marsha - "You are too, Rudd."
Rudder - "I may even love you. Crazy, huh?"
Marsha - "Ditto. Guess I'm crazy too."
Rudder - "Let's be crazy together, then."
Marsha - "Sounds like a plan to me."
Rudder - "...You're sure you want a big lug like me?"
Marsha - "S'long as you keep me."
Rudder - "Don't worry, I'm planning on it."
And thus, Rockshipping sailed. Woohoo!
