Before I start this post, I wanted to do a brief promo for a new Twitter chat/ blogger RT account that my good friend Vegas Girl created! It’s called US Blog RT, to make up for all of the UK accounts already out there!! Check it out, tag them in tweets for a RT, and make sure to join them for #USBlogChat on Mondays at 6pm EST. Look forward to seeing you all there!!
Happy (almost) Valentine’s day everyone!!! In honor of the most romantic holiday of the year, I decided to make a list of some of the fictional couples that I SHIP. As someone who seems infinitely alone, I’m jealous of literally every couple, so this is going to be kind of hard 🙂
Bella and Edward (Twilight, by Stephenie Meyer)
You can’t tell me that they’re not cute, you really can’t. Yes, a lot of people hate the books (although I genuinely don’t know why) and even more people think Edward’s gross (I blame the movies for that) but they’re perfect for each other. Their love is so deep and endless that I adore it. There’s no way that you could deny their chemistry and the way their personalities meet.
Clary and Simon (Mortal Instruments Series, by Cassandra Clare)
Jace was cute, and I liked him, but there’s something so alluring about Simon, he’s so sweet, and he’s always there for Clary. Even though he was friendzoned pretty consistently, he was super loyal. I feel like Clary didn’t go for him just because he wasn’t a Shadowhunter, because otherwise their personalities meshed perfectly. Ugh I don’t know why Cassandra Clare thought it would be a good idea not to make him more of a part of Clary’s love life.
Ron and Hermione (Harry Potter Series, by JK Rowling)
Yes, they’re the most argued about couple in all of Harry Potter. But seriously guys, they’re adorable. Ron so clearly had a crush on her forever, and Hermione needed someone like him to balance out her over the top personality. They’ve had so many cute scenes even before they started dating, and I love the fact that they are friends above all. Plus, those of you who thought Hermione and Harry would work, just picture their two Type A personalities trying to compromise on anything. They can’t. They’re too much alike to ever have a relationship.
Caleb and Margo Roth Spiegelman (Divergent, by Veronica Roth MEETS Paper Towns, by John Green)
Ugh. You are both disgusting creatures and deserve nobody but each other. Go run away and resist reality and betray everyone who cares about you together. You’d probably end up abandoning each other while you’re at it because you don’t understand what it means to be there for someone who is there for you. In Divergent, Caleb was basically a villain, and in Paper Towns Margo was what made me hate the book (she was also the reason for the book so I guess I hated the whole concept) so I would love to see them meet, especially considering the fact that their flaws are so similar.
Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth (Pride and Prejudice, by Jane Austen)
I LOVE THEM SO FREAKING MUCH!!!! There’s so much development between the two and it seems so realistic. This is by far my favorite classic and it’s mostly because the relationship was my absolute favorite in this book, they balance each other so well, and are completely real the entire time *cough cough* Jane Eyre.
Hazel and Augustus (The Fault in Our Stars, by John Green)
Yeah, this was a cheesy set up romance, but still they were perfect for each other. Augustus had a way that just drew Hazel out of her shell and back into the real world. They were exactly what the other one needed, and although I don’t know if the fact that they were dying just added to that perception, it made me happy to see their relationship grow so strong.
