Fraggle Pairings

Discussion in 'Fraggle Rock' started by Redsonga, Mar 18, 2009.

  1. Opps I didn't realize that Redsonga had already bought up Sidebottom's Blues episode. Anyway Red and Boober always seemed to act like a sister and brother to me.

    Yup, yup 'Sidebottom Blues' is epic flinging :3
    I think the brother/sister idea for Red and Boober holds up very well :).

    Mokey and Boober always seem a bit happier when they are together I've noticed :). Even though Mokey is often seen as a very happy fraggle she has a sort of unspoken gloom that she uses in poems and things (I think it might have something to do with her wanting to change the fraggle world to make even better somehow but not really having the know how to do it). When they are together a lot of both glooms seems to be canceled out :).
    With Gobo/Mokey I think that the crush that doesn't go anywhere is just very realistic. I mean it happens all the time in real life, why not with fraggles? :)
     
  5. True, also I see Mokey as being Boobers comfort too, I don't remember what episode it was, but the mine fraggles were upset about something and Boober was sort of hugging Mokey from behind and when she started to walk he was still holding on to her and walking with her. It was really cute.

    ^ Yeah, Mokey is all about peace and art and a worried, paranoid fraggle like Boober really needs somebody like that to keep things calm.

    (Sorry if I'm intruding. :o It's been a while since I've been on, but when I found this thread, I just had to reply!)

    I personally was totally for Mokey/Boober when I was introduced to the series, mainly because they were my top faves. But once I got into it, I also liked Red/Gobo, Sidebottom/Red, C-John/Pink Fragglette, and a slew of others.

    Also, while this is not canon and possibly unlikely in the first place, I thought, since the Minstrels and the Old Gypsy Lady travel around a lot, they probably somehow met by chance at some point. ;)

    Well, the good thing about the writing side of fandom is that you can do stories for many couples and make it all fit. IMHO I don't think Mokey/Boober cancels out Red/Boober in fanfic-dom, but I think as far as the show goes there might be more support for Mokey/Boober or Sidebottom/Red (A note on pairings, usually I put the more forceful of the two first. Where as Boober is happy to be 2nd 99% of the time IMHO, I think Sidebottom would be..something to be in love with. *pictures Sidebottom/Mokey* *rating of pretend story goes up by itself* O.O)

    That's the fun of fanfics: Anything is possible! *Spongebob-style rainbow hands*

    Then again, I'll support just about any pairing that sticks to me, whether or not canon applies! :flirt:

    Personally, I just go with whatever order I think sounds catchier, and if I can, I'll even mash the names together.

    That must be some really awesome story! :crazy:

    Let's just say it would be at least PG-13 if Sidebottom had anything to do with it o.o
    *story taps on shoulder*
    No, I will not write you :p!
     
  11. What would be really funny if Mokey didn't know it was Sidebottom.

    LOL! I'm trying really hard not to think about it. How un-Fraggle-y it would be :crazy:

    Actually, it could be very fraggle-ly if written a certain way..I just don't have the guts for it *lol* ;).

    I disturb this old topic for a reason... :D
    Mokey and Boober are something which makes me happy when put together. Very cute, implying that they're just close friends. I actually can't see any Fraggle paired with another out of romantic feelings.. :zany: In fact, Red and Gobo are like siblings for me.
    Gobo and Mokey should work well. However, when Boober demands help and support, he won't resist at all, meanwhile Gobo should stay the leader all the time and Mokey's caring attitude could be seen annoying to his self-esteem.

    Some Boober and Mokey moments:

    You Can't Do That Without A Hat - Mokey makes a 'hat' for Boober and kisses him.
    Feel So Bad (song from "Don't Cry Over Spilt Milk" ep.) - it is what Alpha Centauri mentioned. He literally rushed into Mokey.
    Mokey and The Minstrels - when she's going away, her farewell with Boober seemed a little more special than other ones. Not to mention how Boober literally stuck to her robe.

    I have all sorts of oddball opinions on this. Anything I post is just what I think, and applies only to my own fanfics, so don't take it as me putting down anyone else's notions.

    I don't like the idea of the Fraggle Five pairing off. It would divide them and change the nature of the group. They have a wide mix of personalities, and they function well as a family already; I say let 'em stay that way when they grow up. After all, what evidence have we seen that Fraggles marry?

    Of course, there will be pairings of various natures, romantic and non, within this group. Most obviously, Red & Gobo, Gobo & Wembley, and Red & Mokey, but also Mokey & Boober and Boober & Wembley. I don't include Sidebottom as a character because I like to think that later on Boober stopt trying to deny the basic fact that fun is fun, so Sidebottom doesn't need to separate himsels from Boober and act out.

    As for Lou and Tosh, I think Lou is just Wembley's good friend, but since nothing really story-worthy happened afterward involving her, we never saw much of her again. Tosh seems to have been an adolescent crush for Boober. Remember how Gonzo fell in love with Madeline Kahn on the basis of one compliment? I see something similar happening with Boober. BTW, this wasn't only in "A Tune for Two" - in "Gobo's School for Explorers" Tosh was clearly the teacher's pet.

    The Storyteller & Matt: I fully support this! If only I ever found a way to work it into my stories. Shoot, there's a story in the idea of The Storyteller finally getting Matt's attention. Given how oblivious Matt is, that might take a bludgeon.

    On a note about "Mokey's Funeral" and that phrase, "so many things"
    Those things are probably apologetic words, because Gobo didn't believe in her at first. But, the fact is that Boober is the one who apologised for their behaviour, and how he did it! The last rowing sequence is just another minor-valued proof for Gobo-Red and Mokey-Boober.

    I agree, they are kind of young, but if it ever did happen it would be so cute! :coy:

    Thank you, Redsonga, for creating this thread --- it's sort of my dream thread! Please, let nobody be mistaken here, because I love the friendship in FR (there are a few really great Gobo/Wembley songs that bingboingcutie and I often imitate), but it's just that my favorite romances lie in Fraggle Rock.:3

    I'll tell more later.

    Yeah, I agree. I'm likely just going in a little too over my head here, but I've always sort of thought that, while Gobo and Red went to see Mokey when the Gorgs held her funeral, Boober must have been too devastated to see her lifeless. He's just such a sensitive Fraggle.

    Heh heh. I just posted the first chapter of a fic, The Mamas and The Papas, which is gonna be pretty heavy on the 'shipping. Gotta admit, I'm looking forward to writing for Boober & Mokey. Or vice versa.
