      Yes, I'm a shipper! I feel that M and S secretly love each other, but can't express their feelings right now due to their partnership. so I'm technically a finishipper!

      I have some respect for the views of the finishippers, as they realize that a romance would ruin the show, so they'll put it off till the end.

      I think that if they showed us a consummation or even a simple acknowlegement of their wuv at the end of the series, there would be no way they could focus on it, except in a movie, and even then, I wouldn't want more than one or two scenes that acknowlege[sic] the relationship. I guess that makes me more of a finishipper.
