    To be fair, I don't "ship" many characters... I'm the least enthusiastic about relationships, real or fake, out of everyone I know in my life... and this is the first "shipping" since Andrea and Michonne I've cared for that wasn't canon... (I mentioned that I thought Daryl and Beth were kinda cute together once, but I never cared enough about that one enough to really REALLY hope for it to happen - I REALLY wanted Michonne and Andrea to be in a relationship...) I'm very selective in my shipping though, and don't force characters together in my mind if it doesn't already seem like a little something might be there...

    I'm not ship-crazy, and certainly don't feel the need for everyone to be paired up. In fact, most of the pairings on the show don't make sense to me... I've just finally come around to accepting Glenn and Maggie. Here are the ships I appreciate:

    Canon:
    Glenn x Maggie
    Aaron x Eric

    Non-Canon:
    Michonne x Andrea
    Daryl x Jesus

    That's it... Unless I'm forgetting one, in which case it couldn't have excited me too much... Every single other relationship from the show or "shipping" I've seen other people go on about... I do not care... So don't take this as me wanting to make sure everyone has a partner... because I certainly do not care about that. I like plenty of characters being single. I'd prefer it.

I acknowledge that this ship is 90% out of nowhere. Only 90% though. They are 10% gay together already... at least.

    But if Daryl isn't gay then friends maybe
    Yes JERYL!!

    I'm in only if I can take it 100% not seriously Is this what people call a "crack ship"? I'm aboard

    There was another thread that brought this up and described Jesus flirting with Daryl just to make him uncomfortable and bug him and I thought that would be hilarious too!!

    Not a shipper also as I find it mehh for me. Not maybe my kind of thing but the pairs I currently do like right now are:

    Canon:
    Glenn and Maggie
    Carol and Tobin (not totally in a relationship yet but they already shared something sexual)

    Non-Canon:
    None, hahaha.

    Dead:
    Lori and Rick

    I also like Tara/Denise and Sasha/Abe team-up only some times. Others to me are just okay or a "don't care" thing.
    I'm more into friendships in the show than into romantic relationships. Friendship is more enjoyable and sweet to watch for me.

    As for Jesus and Daryl, I like their interaction as one is feeling indifference to the other and the other one doesn't care for it. It's funny. But I cannot think of them in a relationship right now maybe because I don't care or I don't see it for now. Daryl is just growing again and Jesus is still showing some more because he is so new so I don't want them yet to bang bang each other or any other in the TF as of this moment.

    Maybe we could stop shipping Daryl with every fucking character?

    I know Jesus is gay in the GN but until that tidbit is divulged in the TV series, maybe we could not be so premature (hehehe) about things?

    If this is truly just a crackship, then by all means, ship away.

    Now that Abe has dumped Rosita, how long will it be until fans start shipping her with Daryl?

    Not for me. And my opinion on it being shipped depends on the why. I don't view people objectifying queer female characters (or what people wish were lesbians) kindly and it's absolutely no different if it's guys. If it's slash that's based on character story and interaction (and not just cuz "they're hot") I don't mind that so much, but I'll prolly find myself disagreeing with the opinion. And I do kinda question it when it's from a show that already has queer representation that fans are ignoring in favour of wishing the white male was gay.

    I don't view Daryl as gay. I don't believe he has ever been portrayed as queer. I'm gonna be pissed off if they've changed Jesus' sexuality on the show, but Daryl is completely irrelevant to that.

    I personally could never understand how someone can ship someone without there being something very tangible to base it off, but I know some people do so and with fair intentions, but it's not my thing.

    If I wanna get off to queer interaction, I'll go watch porn. If I wanna get invested in a queer storyline, I'll find a good queer character. I already have an opinion on Daryl and who he is and his relationships based on 6 seasons worth of characterisation. I'm not gonna just dismiss it.

    Friendship: don't mind it and it could make for some good scenes, but considering the criticism Daryl has had in the past regarding other big characters and him overshadowing/ruining them, I'm happy that so far Jesus' characterisation is going well and they're building him up with Rick. Jesus is an important character and can be influential to an audience. I don't want that ruined. And definitely not for a fantasy crack ship that may get my oh-so-very-queer back up.

    I still think Daryl could go either way, or neither way in regard to his sexuality. It's been very unclear. I'm not saying I want Jesus and Daryl to randomly have sex in the next episode. I'm saying that they had good chemistry in their first scenes and I would enjoy watching a relationship between the two progress over time.

    The reason people tend to ship Daryl in particular with lots of different characters is because he's such a mystery. With lots of characters, shipping them would just be insane. Like, we know for a fact that Tara is quite gay, so we can't ship her with any men without pretty much 100% ignoring what we know about her. We know for a fact that Rick is quite hetero, so we can't reasonably ship him with any men. We know Glenn and Maggie are very faithful to each other, so we can't ship either of them with anyone. While everyone has a little gay and a little hetero somewhere in them, and anyone could potentially cheat on their partner, so technically there could be a *chance* that Tara could be with a man, or Aaron could be with a woman, or Rick could be with a man or Glenn and Maggie could part ways and end up with different people besides each other... It's possible - just not very likely when we've seen them clearly show a preference one way or the other. Most of the characters have shown their sexual preferences quite clearly. Daryl is one of the only ones who hasn't, so of course people are going to wonder about him and hope he might end up with one character or another who he seems to have good chemistry with.

    I don't recall any moment at all when Daryl has been portrayed as gay or straight. But everyone ships him with Carol anyway... So far, he's not been portrayed either way, which means he can still go either way... or neither way. I wouldn't mind him being asexual. It's actually very nice to have asexual representation in fiction, especially in a character who is so well-respected among the fanbase.

    - - - Updated - - -

    I'm not objectifying Daryl because "he's hot" either. I actually don't think he is. It's a personal opinion, of course, but I've never found him very attractive. I'm shipping them because I liked their chemistry... as I've said already. Same reason why I shipped Michonne and Andrea - they had good chemistry. I don't think either of them is "hot" either.

    If I wanted to objectify the characters and ship the hottest ones, I'd ship a three-way between Glenn, Jesus, and Father Gabriel.
