Hello Darlings and welcome back to Shipping 101!
I’ve been struck with an overwhelming need to share a new love of mine with you, the oh-so-perfect femslash ship “Cartinelli”; Peggy Carter/Angie Martinelli. In the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Angie is Peggy’s friend and neighbor, confidant waitress and only person besides Jarvis with whom Peggy can just be herself (sans superspy skills). Angie cares about Peggy too, and helped her find a new apartment (next door, TYVM). All Angie wants to do is hang out, eat pie and get tipsy, but Peggy is a little wary of getting involved with anyone who might get hurt because of her. Sound like a familiar romantic trope? Yeah…
The fanfic and fanart started as soon as the first episode of Agent Carter aired and the numbers are only growing. It’s exciting to see a ship develop, and, even though there are currently only 107 fics under the tag, I’m trolling AO3 patiently searching for the one. So far, my favorite is the Coffee and Tea series, but I need more. I’m hoping my favorite MCU fic writers will take this ship to sea soon, as I am in dire need of a nice, long, somewhat fluffy fic involving these two making heart eyes at each other and eventually, shmexy times ensue.
If you’re digging these cuties and the obvious chemistry they share, visit some of my favorite Tumblr sites for images, edits, ficlets and more. Check out Vintage Girlfriends, The Canary Lives and MCUFemslash and join me in a glass of schnapps and a slice of rhubarb pie and let’s ship it good, shall we?
