The Shipping News: Epic Love Story of a Slave and a Gladiator

Plus, hookers with a heart of gold, Mark Ruffalo talks “Science Bros” and an Awkward accidental ship.

Hi guys, Yvonne here again. No you are not going crazy, I’m doing two weeks in a row this month because my fellow slash experts are all otherwise engaged. I’m sure it’s something shipping related!

Fandom News Round-up:

The Backlot + VH1 = Vhot
Vhot Slash


You’ve probably noticed that this site has gotten a bit of a face lift… change is hard but there comes a point in every website’s life when it’s time to move on and up in the world. If you want to know all about TheBacklot’s (Lot for short) grown-up adventures then The Backlot Tumblr has you covered (with a little help from ImNotReallyAKitty). We here at The Shipping News are really only worried about how this effects the relationship with VH1 – but it looks as though Vhot (formally Vhelton) is going strong if the above image is anything to go by.

Two Doctors


Last week I was accidentally shipping the Doctor with himself and this week we got some images of Matt Smith and David Tennant shooting the 50th Anniversary special together (like the one above). Our shipper hearts (we have two of them) just can’t handle it.

Thanks to Vulture, Mark Ruffalo now knows about “Science Bros” (the pairing of Bruce Banner and Tony Stark) and apparently he thinks it’s cute. Vulture introduced Ruffalo to the phenomenon and his response is pretty cool. He asked: “So, are they all quasi-homoerotic?” The answer is yes, Mark. So how does he feel about the ship? Apparently he loves it: “I endorse it 100 percent. You know what it is? It’s open-source creativity.” Read the whole article here.
