I like Ikari not because there’s a ton of canonical basis for it, but because from the few interactions they do have, we could reasonably say a relationship between them would be (a) hilarious; (b) angsty; (c) unique; (d) all of the above.
I say hilarious because half of Dawn and Paul’s interactions are, surprisingly, really funny. They’re very different people, and as a result, they don’t really know what to make of each other, and that can lead to some interesting situations.
