`I Ship It' Mini-Contest

'I Ship It' Mini-Contest:iconDreamingAutumn: :iconIrrevocableFate:
The 'Caitlin + Stephany' Ship that is.
DreamingAutumn and I are bestest friends, so we need a shipname to celebrate our love for one another. :eager: Besides, what great friendship DOESN'T have a ship name? EXACTLY. This is where you come in, we'd like you to come up with a shipname for us. True, we could do it ourselves, but we're indecisive and kinda lazy. Plus, we want to give away 50 points, just because we can.
Not interested in this shipname contest? Don't worry BestestFriendContest has you covered, we'll be announcing a new contest as soon as this mini-contest is over! There are amazing prizes so you should totally get yourself pumped for the contest. :eyes: No really, I mean it, the prizes are super cool.
