"Guess the 'ship" meme, ganked from ariadneelda and a few others

I love this meme. But I've turned out to be a terrible guesser on everyone else's, so I'm going at it from this angle.

I haven't written all of these pairings; maybe half of them? But I love them all.

"Guess the 'ship"

1. The young cripple/The scarred loner
2. The terrorist prince/The patricide
3. The guy with the red sportscar/The geezer
4. The plucky reporter/The devil
5. The black-haired chosen one/The mouthy blond
6. The altar sacrifice/The perfect servant
7. You were trying to impress him/You assumed he was their chief
8. The infinitely rich alien/The one who is not his son
9. "Don Jose"/"Carmen (understudy)"
10. The Englishman/The Russian
12. The would-be god/The one who knew it was him all along
13. His socks are so disgusting that.../...they cause this person to inadvertently fire employees
14. The time-traveling medical person/The redhead with great legs
15. Hates being called "little princess"/The one who's starting to root for him
16. The L.A. cop/The shopkeeper
17. The one named after the inquisitor/The one named after the Marlowe character
18. The vampire/The Italian
19. The watchdog/The spider
20. The one who's not left-handed/The not-so-master of disguise
21. She knew he would save her when she jumped/His heart dried up long ago
22. Always number two, but at least you have chocolate/Always number three, but at least you have number two
23. The bleached blond/The pageboy
24. You couldn't leave him to burn/You couldn't give him up to your parents
25. Rather had than a heap of gold/Rather had than any ship in the navy

Some are meant to be a little misleading and some are from more obscure fandoms. To me they feel so obvious it makes me blush. ^_^
