Benefits of Invisibility

I think my very first instance of “shipping” involved the Dungeons & Dragons cartoon from the 1980s. This was long before I even knew what “shipping” was. I just mentally paired off Hank the ranger and Sheila the thief, as well as Eric the Cavalier and Diana the acrobat. Poor Presto was left alone, along with the prepubescent Bobby.

While many people get their start at relationshipping cartoon characters by mentally pairing off Fred and Daphne from Scooby Doo (Or Velma and Daphne. Both are good.) it says something about the inevitability of my nerdiness that I started with the D&D cartoon.
