    • Well, I have no idea 'bout that paring and I don't think, that it is canon, but I find it very cute!

    • I remember when fear said, "I wish Joy was here!", hint he has feelings for her.

    • this pairing has been a thing for a while and I support it, despite the Disgust x Fear parings. Personally I like Disgust and Anger and this makes more sense if you've seen the movie so.

      BUT they were originally going to be the main two as opposed to Joy and Sadness so its possible :)

    • I doubt Fear and Joy will ever be a couple. I mean That's not a good idea. I really support Disgust x Fear

    • Shipping the emotions? Come on, I can't be the only one who finds that a little odd. Keep in mind that the emotions aren't really full characters; they're parts of Riley's psyche, pieces of who the girl is. That's like shipping Riley with herself!

      Also, remember that Riley has no clue that her emotions are personified and running amok through her mind; like any other person, she only knows when she feels those emotions and when she makes a choice based on how she feels. If she doesn't know about them, how could she make them fall for each other?

      When Riley is old enough to start falling for someone, I'd take it to mean all her heart would fall in love, or, in this case, her mind. What sense does it make that the inner workings of her head fall in love with each other? If she's in love with herself, that could affect her ego bigtime. Frankly, I don't see Inside Out as a particularly shippy movie, but to each their own. I'm sticking with shipping full characters, all their emotions.

      That's a good point, but I still think its cute. I don't really have anything to back me up, so you win but i still like the pairings(this is the part where we turn them into humans and call it good XD).

    • but personally i like Disgust and Anger better because of the way they interact in the movie(its not alot, but one scene in particular made me 100% on that pairing) and I like Fear and Joy because people portray Fear as having a distance type of crush which I find adorable.

      I also kind of like Fear and Sadness, I know it seems strange but really I just like to at least see them interact, it doesn't have to be romantic. Also Anger and Sadness, that one is because of a misunderstanding in a commercial starring sadness XD and a picture I found on DeviantART.

      As far as shipping with Bing Bong, I just can't. I like seeing him interact with both Joy and Sadness, but not romantically. Like, Bing Bong is just to inocent and all, ya know?

    • Yeah. But I like Disgust and Fear better. Even if they didn't have very much friendly interaction with each other. I just hope it can be them someday

      Same here! Disgust and Anger just has better chemistry for me, and FearxJoy is my OTP for the movie.

    • oh yeah I almost forgot! As far as shipping Bing Bong with the emotions... ehhhhh... You can if you want, but Bing Bong doesn't seem like the kind of person to be in love, he's too much of a three year old XD

      But I like seeing pictures of him interacting with the other emotions, but I don't, like, ship it or anything.

    • FearxJoy is my Inside Out OTP. I agree with you, and certainly like to believe it's true. In all their interactions, Fear has a rather close affinity with Joy, adopting a WWJD? mindset in her absence {"Until she get's back, we'll just do what Joy would do!"; "No, no,no! Stay happy!"; "Find a happy place!"} and was BY FAR the most visibly upset of the three remaining at Headquarters about Joy's disappearance, spoken in a nutshell by his lines: "Joy, where ARE you!?", "I wish Joy was here!", and "THANK GOODNESS YOU'RE BACK!!!" ((you could argue this was directed towards both Joy and Sadness, not just Joy herself, but as mean-sounding as it is, this was still before Sadness was not yet truly accepted by the others [regardless how 'right before'], and she wasn't really paid too much mind by any one other than Joy at that point until after saving Riley; neither he, let alone Disgust and Anger, really showed any visible concern for Sadness)).

      You can also see Fear almost always standing right next to, or at least in a very close proximity to Joy at the console {he had his hand on her SHOULDER when he was first introduced, and like the picture at the top, pulled Joy in REEEEAL close to express his trepidation towards Riley being called on by the teacher}, consulting various decisions with her the most [during the 'first day of school', these two are the ones participating the most; Riley even notes to her parents that she's feeling "a little nervous, but mostly excited"], and to me from what I saw in the film, always seemed to be the most elated when Joy appeased a situation, where he's constantly looking towards her direction for answers, then with a smile when Joy comes up with a solution and even pitches in compliments on them you need to listen carefully for. Additionally, you can't deny how MIFFED Fear sounded going off on Disgust for not correctly mimicking Joy, then how crestfallen he looked learning he wasn't any more successful at acting like her either, or the fact that Fear, though he voices his concerns for Riley and the new potential dangers to be encountered with moving, unlike Disgust and Anger, he doesn't call Joy out for things not going as smoothly in the move and failing to make light of the situation. Not to mention, that it wasn't Joy, but FEAR to first coin the name "Team Happy" for the group; that has to at least indicate admiration to some degree.

      In turn, Joy is the only Emotion to directly (effectively) appease his anxiety [telling a white lie about earthquakes being a myth to limit his paranoia during the move, then calming him down when he starts to panic when Riley is called on by the teacher at her new school], whereas in all other instances Fear is told off by Disgust or Anger to get over it, or hyperventilates into a paper bag. Joy is also the one to extinguish Fear after Anger sets him on fire, which while not much, is still a kind gesture and an act none of the others considered doing when he was running around frantically. I'll also make note of the minor moments in the deleted scenes/clips 'Five-Second Rule' and 'The Shoes of Doom'. In the first, he compliments Joy's feat and quick-thinking recovering a grape in the rather intense five-second countdown, then in a more vague example, shows concern when Joy and Disgust start arguing, even considering intervening. In the second, Joy warns/cautions Fear about the scary movie, skeptical that he'd take it well, which he rather cockily responses: "Uh, thank you, Joy, but I'll have you know I'm not scared of EVERYTHING" (impress attempt?); then when he does freak out, momentarily appeases him by switching the TV to the nature channel [putting her hand on his shoulder], and when he passes out, she casts him a brief worried look, where the others just look indifferent before resuming the movie.

      Furthermore, in the book 'Driven by Emotions', where it accounts the different POVs of all the Emotions {I'll try not to spoil any big details, but it's definitely worth checking out}, Fear's chapter certainly goes into a bit more detail regarding his concern and ['slight'] affinity towards Joy, as well as [for me] showcased the 'platonic relations' he has towards Disgust and Anger (dually supported by both their individual accounts also; they both recalled the majority of the events involving him/his actions with sarcasm or annoyance, and Fear's POV recalled moments helplessness in his position to do anything about Anger's outbursts, or fixing the situation; he even sound hurt and dejected to an extent in response some of both Disgust and Anger's abrasiveness towards him)), and the same with Sadness, revealing Fear's quite surprising, passive-abrasive opinion of her prior to her eventual acceptance. In short, Fear seems to really like Joy's company {and seems to get along with her the best}, where he tolerates/respects/is somewhat apprehensive of everyone else, namely Anger.

      The chemistry for them together I believe can very plausibly work. Fear's caution compliments Joy's fun-loving nature in limiting the recklessness side of it, and with keeping Riley safe, she will be able to enjoy the fun times and stay happy for longer periods of time without the risks and interruptions from getting hurt. At the same time, Joy's confidence and determination encourages Fear to mellow out his paranoia and overcome 'lesser worries' to strengthen Riley's self-esteem, which results in decreased insecurities and irrational fears, but doesn't completely abandon caution or common sense. Plus, if you think about the possibilities of what results from them working together at the console, I imagine several scenarios where Riley overcomes her insecurities to accomplish big achievements, making her a more confident person and, ultimately, achieving a goal for a greater good, such as public speaking and trying new things. Another thing that comes to mind is asking a crush out, or going on a first date; I don't know about everyone else, but mine was nothing but nervous excitement. Potential hint? Speaking of which, it's a possibility for when the upcoming short "Riley's First Date" is released {super excited for that :D}! Early drafts for the film originally had Joy and Fear paired together to get lost in Riley's mind and teach the importance of Fear's purpose; I do love the final product and the direction the movie went with ultimately taught a better and more profound lesson, I would've loved to see how a Joy and Fear buddy comedy played out too {the potential ship tease moments glalore and no doubt there'd be a more vocal fanbase for the pairing if it happened; it's how the JoyxSadness ship came to be, most likely}, it sounds just as good, and the lesson equally important. Fingers crossed future projects may refer back to that idea or use it somewhat in one way or another. 


      In regards to Inside Out pairings as a whole, I personally never really understood the FearxDisgust pairing or it's hype. How I see it from the trailers and the movie itself, the majority of their interactions are fighting, and particularly from Disgust's part, it comes of more "mean-spirited sibling" than "I secretly like you". True, they had the one mixed memory in the film's ending, and you could argue they have similar jobs with similar interests for protecting Riley, but the similarities stop there, and in how I see Disgust's personality, a relationship with Fear doesn't seem to fit in her "tastes". I'm not saying that because of stereotype 'status quo' logic of their character arcetypes or that I think Disgust is more shallow than she actually is [the wiki itself states she's vain, so I'm going off of that fact], just that Fear doesn't seem like her type, and vice versa. As for FearxSadness, I can see it as a possibly more so than I can FearxDisgust, but they only come across to me as having a closer sibling bond as brother and sister (after reconciling, of course). 

      Like Lederhosen4life said, the Disgust and Anger pairing fits better if going by the movie, and to me definitely has better chemistry. True, while they argue just as much as Disgust and Fear, it's a much more believeable "romantic tension" to interpret in context, and they also have more positive interactions as well, which I only see one with Fear and Disgust, and even then, it mostly overshadowed by the stress and panic of the situation they were in ((if you've seen the movie, I think you'll know which part I'm talking about)). Not only do Disgust and Anger have many similarities in mannerisms and goals ((in which their jobs give them prominent 'abrasive' protective natures over Riley)), out of all the girl Emotions, I see Disgust's personality as the one having the best match with Anger. She has the most amount of attitude, snark, and sarcasm to keep up with and match his temper, as well as that these characteristics, according to the movie, Anger has shown a keen liking to, on top of in the 'Five-Second Rule' deleted scene/clip, Anger REALLY seemed to enjoy the minor 'catfight' between Joy and Disgust, which predominantly consisted Disgust's snide and disapproving quips. When teamed with Disgust at the console, Riley would certainly be a force to be reckoned with {just imagine them as the ultimate tag team should Riley be in a situation where she stands up to a bully!}.

      Both the AngerxJoy, AngerxSadness, FearXAnger, and JoyxSadness pairings come in to play from the idea of 'opposites attract' relationship from what I can tell. Again, I don't mind them, they're just not my prefered cups of tea. To me, Anger has a more "unspoken respect" towards Joy as the unstated leader and teammate; they share the common interest in wanting what's best for Riley, and no doubt make a formidable team at the console (I imagine Joy + Anger = unrelenting determination/willpower, competitiveness, passion, courage, and perseverance), but otherwise, Anger tends to get really ticked by her excessive perkiness more often than not {"Don't touch me."; "No, Joy, there's absolutely nothing for Riley to be happy about right now. Let US handle it."}. AngerxSadness don't interact too much for me to develop anything distinct; according to the wiki, "after Joy, Anger is the most abrasive towards Sadness", which in the movie, I can argue Disgust (at least openly; though in 'Driven by Emotions', Anger's abrasiveness is very evident), but it does make sense. Still, Sadness' compassionate side I could believe in driving an attraction (Anger + Sadness = resentment and vengeance/desire for vengeance?; that last one comes from how I feel when sympathize for someone, real or fictional, that has endured a tragedy or hardship, and oftentimes want to serve retribution on those responsible {or at least hope towards it happening when I can't} in hopes of giving some closure to victim), and this one has really started to grow on me recently, though I still see AngerxDisgust as the best match for Anger.

      Now for FearxAnger, JoyxSadness, and DisgustxJoy/Sadness, please no one take this the wrong way, but I don't see these pairings as anything beyond platonic or a BROTP for JoyxSadness. Sadness just wants acceptance, and eventually achieves it from the others, particularly Joy, but comes across to me as estranged sisters reconciling and becoming best friends (crap, I may have just started another Frozen crossover). The sisterly relationship also applies to both pairings shipping Disgust with Joy or Sadness; in my head canon and going by the basis from the movie, Disgust acts like the uptight, somewhat-conceited sister most of the time, but does have her sweet moments, only she's too proud and stubborn to admit it/show it openly. FearxAnger, again, doesn't extend to me as being anything more than platonic. I can see from the trailers where this ship originates, but Fear mostly appears to be acting on nervous impulse and Anger, no surprise, gets irritated by it, responding to it with either a glare or punching him away, which brings me to the conclusion this was mostly intended for comedy's sake. As from what I've seen in the movie, Anger and Fear argue & fight (though the latter is very one-sided) like brothers, and Anger (when not operating the console to express rage) most often takes the brunt of his irritation out on Fear, directly provoked or not {"GET OFF OF ME!; "IDIOT! IT WAS A DREAM!"; "We're taking the bus, nitwit!"}, very much like a hot-headed [no pun intended] older brother, though my personal head canon also sees Anger having a lesser seen paternal-like role towards the others too, as well as a that of a brother.

      I promise, I'm not homophobic, nor is my opinion of such relationships at all reflected solely by my prefered pairings for this movie. I do, in fact like and ship certain yaoi/yuri relationships, just not for Inside Out. For those who do support these pairings, it's just not my thing, but I will respect your opinions, if you respect mine. Don't hate, just respect and tolerate, or not comment at all if you don't have something positive to say; others will do the same, and we can avoid starting another unnecessary flame war.

      Wow. you literally just like explained everything for me. I feel like the same way about these parings! I have nothing against the parings(in fact I look at a few of those other parings a lot) but It's just that JoyxFear and DisgustxAnger overpower the others. But then I feel bad for Sadness not having anyone so this is where I like the other parings XD 

      I also sometimes simply just like to see all of the emotions interact with eachother, especially since I don't really ship sadness with anyone, I just feel really bad because she's, well, sadness XD

    • They could be! It would be cute, seeing as they balance each other out so well.

      Also I don't get why people think it's weird to ship emotions. I mean, the whole movie revolves around how they're all personified. They can wear clothes and have conflicts, but they can't fall in love with each other? Riiight.

      True. But i think that would raise too many eyebrows seeing two emotions that are part of the same person in love.

      BUT they were originally going to be the main two as opposed to Joy and Sadness so its possible :)

      FearxJoy is my Inside Out OTP. I agree with you, and certainly like to believe it's true. In all their interactions, Fear has a rather close affinity with Joy, adopting a WWJD? mindset in her absence {"Until she get's back, we'll just do what Joy would do!"; "No, no,no! Stay happy!"; "Find a happy place!"} and was BY FAR the most visibly upset of the three remaining at Headquarters about Joy's disappearance, spoken in a nutshell by his lines: "Joy, where ARE you!?", "I wish Joy was here!", and "THANK GOODNESS YOU'RE BACK!!!" ((you could argue this was directed towards both Joy and Sadness, not just Joy herself, but as mean-sounding as it is, this was still before Sadness was not yet truly accepted by the others [regardless how 'right before'], and she wasn't really paid too much mind by any one other than Joy at that point until after saving Riley; neither he, let alone Disgust and Anger, really showed any visible concern for Sadness)).

      You can also see Fear almost always standing right next to, or at least in a very close proximity to Joy at the console {he had his hand on her SHOULDER when he was first introduced, and like the picture at the top, pulled Joy in REEEEAL close to express his trepidation towards Riley being called on by the teacher}, consulting various decisions with her the most [during the 'first day of school', these two are the ones participating the most; Riley even notes to her parents that she's feeling "a little nervous, but mostly excited"], and to me from what I saw in the film, always seemed to be the most elated when Joy appeased a situation, where he's constantly looking towards her direction for answers, then with a smile when Joy comes up with a solution and even pitches in compliments on them you need to listen carefully for. Additionally, you can't deny how MIFFED Fear sounded going off on Disgust for not correctly mimicking Joy, then how crestfallen he looked learning he wasn't any more successful at acting like her either, or the fact that Fear, though he voices his concerns for Riley and the new potential dangers to be encountered with moving, unlike Disgust and Anger, he doesn't call Joy out for things not going as smoothly in the move and failing to make light of the situation. Not to mention, that it wasn't Joy, but FEAR to first coin the name "Team Happy" for the group; that has to at least indicate admiration to some degree.

      In turn, Joy is the only Emotion to directly (effectively) appease his anxiety [telling a white lie about earthquakes being a myth to limit his paranoia during the move, then calming him down when he starts to panic when Riley is called on by the teacher at her new school], whereas in all other instances Fear is told off by Disgust or Anger to get over it, or hyperventilates into a paper bag. Joy is also the one to extinguish Fear after Anger sets him on fire, which while not much, is still a kind gesture and an act none of the others considered doing when he was running around frantically. I'll also make note of the minor moments in the deleted scenes/clips 'Five-Second Rule' and 'The Shoes of Doom'. In the first, he compliments Joy's feat and quick-thinking recovering a grape in the rather intense five-second countdown, then in a more vague example, shows concern when Joy and Disgust start arguing, even considering intervening. In the second, Joy warns/cautions Fear about the scary movie, skeptical that he'd take it well, which he rather cockily responses: "Uh, thank you, Joy, but I'll have you know I'm not scared of EVERYTHING" (impress attempt?); then when he does freak out, momentarily appeases him by switching the TV to the nature channel [putting her hand on his shoulder], and when he passes out, she casts him a brief worried look, where the others just look indifferent before resuming the movie.

      Furthermore, in the book 'Driven by Emotions', where it accounts the different POVs of all the Emotions {I'll try not to spoil any big details, but it's definitely worth checking out}, Fear's chapter certainly goes into a bit more detail regarding his concern and ['slight'] affinity towards Joy, as well as [for me] showcased the 'platonic relations' he has towards Disgust and Anger (dually supported by both their individual accounts also; they both recalled the majority of the events involving him/his actions with sarcasm or annoyance, and Fear's POV recalled moments helplessness in his position to do anything about Anger's outbursts, or fixing the situation; he even sound hurt and dejected to an extent in response some of both Disgust and Anger's abrasiveness towards him)), and the same with Sadness, revealing Fear's quite surprising, passive-abrasive opinion of her prior to her eventual acceptance. In short, Fear seems to really like Joy's company {and seems to get along with her the best}, where he tolerates/respects/is somewhat apprehensive of everyone else, namely Anger.

      The chemistry for them together I believe can very plausibly work. Fear's caution compliments Joy's fun-loving nature in limiting the recklessness side of it, and with keeping Riley safe, she will be able to enjoy the fun times and stay happy for longer periods of time without the risks and interruptions from getting hurt. At the same time, Joy's confidence and determination encourages Fear to mellow out his paranoia and overcome 'lesser worries' to strengthen Riley's self-esteem, which results in decreased insecurities and irrational fears, but doesn't completely abandon caution or common sense. Plus, if you think about the possibilities of what results from them working together at the console, I imagine several scenarios where Riley overcomes her insecurities to accomplish big achievements, making her a more confident person and, ultimately, achieving a goal for a greater good, such as public speaking and trying new things. Another thing that comes to mind is asking a crush out, or going on a first date; I don't know about everyone else, but mine was nothing but nervous excitement. Potential hint? Speaking of which, it's a possibility for when the upcoming short "Riley's First Date" is released {super excited for that :D}! Early drafts for the film originally had Joy and Fear paired together to get lost in Riley's mind and teach the importance of Fear's purpose; I do love the final product and the direction the movie went with ultimately taught a better and more profound lesson, I would've loved to see how a Joy and Fear buddy comedy played out too {the potential ship tease moments glalore and no doubt there'd be a more vocal fanbase for the pairing if it happened; it's how the JoyxSadness ship came to be, most likely}, it sounds just as good, and the lesson equally important. Fingers crossed future projects may refer back to that idea or use it somewhat in one way or another. 


      In regards to Inside Out pairings as a whole, I personally never really understood the FearxDisgust pairing or it's hype. How I see it from the trailers and the movie itself, the majority of their interactions are fighting, and particularly from Disgust's part, it comes of more "mean-spirited sibling" than "I secretly like you". True, they had the one mixed memory in the film's ending, and you could argue they have similar jobs with similar interests for protecting Riley, but the similarities stop there, and in how I see Disgust's personality, a relationship with Fear doesn't seem to fit in her "tastes". I'm not saying that because of stereotype 'status quo' logic of their character arcetypes or that I think Disgust is more shallow than she actually is [the wiki itself states she's vain, so I'm going off of that fact], just that Fear doesn't seem like her type, and vice versa. As for FearxSadness, I can see it as a possibly more so than I can FearxDisgust, but they only come across to me as having a closer sibling bond as brother and sister (after reconciling, of course). 

      Like Lederhosen4life said, the Disgust and Anger pairing fits better if going by the movie, and to me definitely has better chemistry. True, while they argue just as much as Disgust and Fear, it's a much more believeable "romantic tension" to interpret in context, and they also have more positive interactions as well, which I only see one with Fear and Disgust, and even then, it mostly overshadowed by the stress and panic of the situation they were in ((if you've seen the movie, I think you'll know which part I'm talking about)). Not only do Disgust and Anger have many similarities in mannerisms and goals ((in which their jobs give them prominent 'abrasive' protective natures over Riley)), out of all the girl Emotions, I see Disgust's personality as the one having the best match with Anger. She has the most amount of attitude, snark, and sarcasm to keep up with and match his temper, as well as that these characteristics, according to the movie, Anger has shown a keen liking to, on top of in the 'Five-Second Rule' deleted scene/clip, Anger REALLY seemed to enjoy the minor 'catfight' between Joy and Disgust, which predominantly consisted Disgust's snide and disapproving quips. When teamed with Disgust at the console, Riley would certainly be a force to be reckoned with {just imagine them as the ultimate tag team should Riley be in a situation where she stands up to a bully!}.

      Both the AngerxJoy, AngerxSadness, FearXAnger, and JoyxSadness pairings come in to play from the idea of 'opposites attract' relationship from what I can tell. Again, I don't mind them, they're just not my prefered cups of tea. To me, Anger has a more "unspoken respect" towards Joy as the unstated leader and teammate; they share the common interest in wanting what's best for Riley, and no doubt make a formidable team at the console (I imagine Joy + Anger = unrelenting determination/willpower, competitiveness, passion, courage, and perseverance), but otherwise, Anger tends to get really ticked by her excessive perkiness more often than not {"Don't touch me."; "No, Joy, there's absolutely nothing for Riley to be happy about right now. Let US handle it."}. AngerxSadness don't interact too much for me to develop anything distinct; according to the wiki, "after Joy, Anger is the most abrasive towards Sadness", which in the movie, I can argue Disgust (at least openly; though in 'Driven by Emotions', Anger's abrasiveness is very evident), but it does make sense. Still, Sadness' compassionate side I could believe in driving an attraction (Anger + Sadness = resentment and vengeance/desire for vengeance?; that last one comes from how I feel when sympathize for someone, real or fictional, that has endured a tragedy or hardship, and oftentimes want to serve retribution on those responsible {or at least hope towards it happening when I can't} in hopes of giving some closure to victim), and this one has really started to grow on me recently, though I still see AngerxDisgust as the best match for Anger.

      Now for FearxAnger, JoyxSadness, and DisgustxJoy/Sadness, please no one take this the wrong way, but I don't see these pairings as anything beyond platonic or a BROTP for JoyxSadness. Sadness just wants acceptance, and eventually achieves it from the others, particularly Joy, but comes across to me as estranged sisters reconciling and becoming best friends (crap, I may have just started another Frozen crossover). The sisterly relationship also applies to both pairings shipping Disgust with Joy or Sadness; in my head canon and going by the basis from the movie, Disgust acts like the uptight, somewhat-conceited sister most of the time, but does have her sweet moments, only she's too proud and stubborn to admit it/show it openly. FearxAnger, again, doesn't extend to me as being anything more than platonic. I can see from the trailers where this ship originates, but Fear mostly appears to be acting on nervous impulse and Anger, no surprise, gets irritated by it, responding to it with either a glare or punching him away, which brings me to the conclusion this was mostly intended for comedy's sake. As from what I've seen in the movie, Anger and Fear argue & fight (though the latter is very one-sided) like brothers, and Anger (when not operating the console to express rage) most often takes the brunt of his irritation out on Fear, directly provoked or not {"GET OFF OF ME!; "IDIOT! IT WAS A DREAM!"; "We're taking the bus, nitwit!"}, very much like a hot-headed [no pun intended] older brother, though my personal head canon also sees Anger having a lesser seen paternal-like role towards the others too, as well as a that of a brother.

      I promise, I'm not homophobic, nor is my opinion of such relationships at all reflected solely by my prefered pairings for this movie. I do, in fact like and ship certain yaoi/yuri relationships, just not for Inside Out. For those who do support these pairings, it's just not my thing, but I will respect your opinions, if you respect mine. Don't hate, just respect and tolerate, or not comment at all if you don't have something positive to say; others will do the same, and we can avoid starting another unnecessary flame war.

      Wow. you literally just like explained everything for me. I feel like the same way about these parings! I have nothing against the parings(in fact I look at a few of those other parings a lot) but It's just that JoyxFear and DisgustxAnger overpower the others. But then I feel bad for Sadness not having anyone so this is where I like the other parings XD 

      I also sometimes simply just like to see all of the emotions interact with eachother, especially since I don't really ship sadness with anyone, I just feel really bad because she's, well, sadness XD

      Thanks so much! I got a bit wordy there, but it feels great to get positive feedback :D

      On the contrary, I think Joy would work with Fear because her positivity would calm Fear down when he's being too paraoid and Fear would remind Joy not to get overly excited about things that could potentially harm Riley. I know they're emotions and it's their job to be themselves, but in a technicality they're all 12. Riley's trying new things out and some of those things are probably just phases. The emotions in the other characters we saw in the movie aren't as exaggerared as Riley's emotions and if we're being technical they'll probably calm down a bit as they get older.

      Just my two cents. Also I can't really imagine Sadness being with anyone. I kind of think she's fine being single, but she'd still have friends so she's not actually alone. Not everyone ends up with a love interest, even at the end of the day. I'd probably rather have her with Joy if I had to choose, but I don't so I won't, heh. Not to say I'm not open to a new character being with Sadness.

    • He'd only be repressing the strong feeling and repressing emotions like fear isn't safe to do all the time, that's another silent way to keep the main problem hidden it can aggravate how serious the emergency or emotional problem or in some situations both. Fear is one who needs help with actually be cautious. We don't want danger being too myseterious. Plus responcsibility we can;t help everyone's emotions especially when the result isn't our fault. But people with fear blame other quite often since their fear can easily get the besst of them.  Some frightened people are scared enough to argue with others.


      Careful with consequences and true emotional reactions Young Ones. Fear would struggle with lovely Joy in several ways. This stuff is clear when you know how to read behavior accurately.

    • Here bigger fans if you want the best results of consequences and emotional reactions that don't aggravate cofusion or danger or make them too mysterious here are the couples I'd form adding a few new Optimistics to the sequel.


      SADNESS IN LOVE WITH GRATTITUDE

      FEAR IN LOVE WITH HOPE

      ANGER IN LOVE WITH STABILITY ( feeling safe)

      DISGUST IN LOVE WITH RELIEF

      JOY IN LOVE WITH  a feeling we need to cure like SHYNESS or LONELINESS


      couples like these are safe Sadness and Grattitude would be like oh thanks things are going much better. Fear and Hope would be like oh I don't what's happening but together we'll accomplish this. Anger and Stability would be like good finally I know what to do life feels easier now thank you.Digust and Relief would be like I didn't like how the situation started to luckily I made it through. Joy with Shyness or Loniless would be like finally I'm not as bored as I used to be and I know who I am.
