it is just a nickname, but i think that the EJamis would be upset if someone started calling Sami & EJ "SamEJ", or if "Rate" became "Kafe", etc. each couple has one squish name, and I remember the discussions about what Hope & Vargas should be and "Vope" was the overall favorite.

Someone started a fan twitter for Hope/Vargas called @VarpeFans. I caution that anyone who tweets them saying that it's "Vope", not "Varpe" will get attacked for doing so.
IMO, "Varpe" sounds like some nasty disease or something.
I don't know... I kind of like Varpe! It sounds different, and I like that they used "Varpe Diem" as a twist to Carpe Diem.
but "Varpe Diem" implies that it's pronounced "Varpay", and Hope is not pronounced "Hopay", it's pronounced "Hope" which would make "Varpe" pronounced "Varp". you can't just change pronunciations of things to try to make them fit some sort of play on words.
Vope... Varpe... it makes no difference to me, it's just a couple nickname. :shrug:
