Day 26: Favorite Non-Canon Ship
I know, I know. Joey/Rachel is technically canon, in that it happened for five seconds and was not at all satisfying. But I am talking Joey/Rachel soulmates and together forevs, here. They have way more in common than Ross and Rachel, first of all. Same sense of humor, similar faults, similar strengths. And Joey’s growing up that season felt real to me. He loves Chandler and Monica and their relationship SO much and he wants that. Suddenly he’s Bobby in the finale of Company: he’s ready. What would make more sense than for him to fall for Rachel, who he has always been a little in love with anyway. And Rachel would have had FUN with Joey. Her relationship with Ross always felt a little too tragic for me. I know that Ross and Rachel had to end up together because of the baby and conventional family structure blah blah blah. And that’s probably why the end of the Joey/Rachel thing is such a throwaway. There’s really no reason for them NOT to go for it.
And also, hellooooo, they were crazy hot.
