This is an...interesting one. Back when Fanfictiondreamer was watching Ratchet and Clank for the first time, she fell in love with the series. Her natural...urge to throw everything that she loves into a story kicked in and a story began forming in her head. Around the same time, Kim Possible was still airing and out of something that was seemingly random, her mind began to form this idea of creating a crossover with the 2 series. A little into writing out the story, her mind came up with another crazy idea of Kim and Ratchet for reasons that were seemingly random. Although, she thinks her own mind knows what ideas work before she does. Also, when you really think about it, these 2 are a lot alike. From the beginning, they became fascinated with each other, almost to a point where they both started to develop feelings for each other. She even threw in Ratchet calling Kim by her real name, Kimberly, as symbolism.
Also, throughout the first story, the 2 demonstrated how much they would be willing to help each other out however they can. It had always been that dynamic with them. They weren't aware of how much they really liked each other and in some ways, it was almost as though they were trying to hide it. However, Ron and Clank were never fooled. They saw right through their attempts to hide their feelings as they knew their friends all too well.
By the end of the first book, Ratchet and Kim finally acknowledged their feelings for each other and how much they really did care for one another. From there, they shared their first kiss and had remained in touch with each other ever since. However, within that entire year, Kim was afraid of being ridiculed for being in a relationship with an alien and Ratchet also feared that, so they decided to break off their relationship and remained friends. Also, within that year, Kim and Ron started dating because that's what Kim Possible fans wanted and to be honest, she wanted it, too, even though she felt that the idea was kind of weak.
Ron did enjoy being in a relationship with Kim but he knew that she decided to date him to keep herself away from Ratchet. Ratchet even went back to calling Kim by her iconic nickname. However, their feelings for each other never dissipated despite convincing themselves and everyone else otherwise. As always, their friends were never fooled by their masquerades and have wanted the 2 of them to get back together. This was apparent in the second book and by the third book, Ron was doing all he could to try and get them back together. He even vowed that they will rekindle their relationship even if he had to make it happen.
Within the fourth book, it was even more apparent how much they cared about each other and in a flashback, Ron did something that he believed he had to do: he broke up with Kim and demanded that she returned to Ratchet. Kim tried to convince him why they couldn't, but after seeing how avoiding Ratchet was eating away at her, he was fed up with seeing his friend in so much pain. Ron had known Kim for a long time and he knows that Kim and Ratchet really do care about each other regardless of their race. Throughout the fourth book, Kim tried to tell Ratchet this, but had been hesitant. Ratchet had also been realizing more and more how much he loved her. Within the end of the book, Ratchet and Kim finally confessed their feelings for each other and from there, they decided to remain a couple no matter what would happen, with Ratchet addressing her by Kimberly as well.
Much like the first shipping, she tried to resist this one, but in the long run, she went with it because of how the story went, it made sense and as she thought about it, she couldn't have written or dreamt it up any other way.
She also came up with a song specifically for them, "Say the Word." And she would love to see James Arnold Taylor and Christy Carlson Romano sing it. She even wrote the lyrics for that.
