Prompted by a present I received from my best friend, I have been on a Daria kick. If you don’t know what that is, please, please for the love of pizza, fix that.
No matter how many times I watch this show, and no matter how much I agree that Tom might have been the better man for Daria, I am still a firm Daria-Trent shipper. Everything in me tells me I shouldn’t be, but I am. I mean, Trent was a lazy burnout, but he really cared for Jane, and give me a big brother that cares for his sibling and you’ve got me sold. Besides, I still squeal during the episode “Pierce Me” when Trent tells Daria she’d look cute with a belly ring. And if it wasn’t for Trent, Daria and Jane would have a hard time mending their relationship because of their stubbornness.
I think the main reason I refuse to accept Tom is that he started off as Jane’s boyfriend. I know that if Daria and Jane can move past that, so should I, but I can’t. Sorry Tom, take your conventional good looks and sarcastic attitude and leave me with my skinny unwashed Trent. (Ew, maybe not unwashed.)
What about you, were you a Tom or a Trent shipper? Why?
I leave you with some Trent to try and get you to join me on this sinkable ship:
