Chocolate Peanut Butter Cookie Sandwiches

I’m a shipper. I ship Carol and Daryl from The Walking Dead. I ship Sherlock and Irene from the BBC’s Sherlock. I also ship Clara and Eleven.

I know, I know. Eleven is married to River. But he and Clara are just so darn cute together.

So, who do you ship?
