Full disclosure: I’ve never seen Bones before. I mean, generally speaking, I know that it’s been on the air for a long time, and I know Ace watches it occasionally, and that’s about all I know about it. But when FOX announced that it was doing a special Sleepy Hollow and Bones crossover event for Halloween (with a namesmush hashtag, #HollowBones), I was actually kind of excited. I wanted to see how other detective-ish folks would react to Sleepy Hollow’s particular brand of crazy, and I wanted to see how Ichabod worked with people who were not as attuned to him as Abbie is. Unfortunately, by the end of the dual episodes, I was left wondering what the point of it all was. Spoilers after the jump!
Pretty much everyone who has read fanfiction has an OTP—a One True Pairing that they ship harder than anything else. But what about the couples that are just awesome buds, and who you like together as friends but not romantically? Well the recently coined term ‘brotp’ is there for you. And since Valentine’s Day puts and unnecessary emphasis on being in a romantic relationship, I figured I’d take this post to give a shout-out to some of the awesomest platonic friendships out there.
