The lovely Sarah Alderson is here today, talking all about her favourite fictional couples!! Enjoy! :D
The Best Fictional Couples EVER.
1. Augustus & Hazel from The Fault In Our Stars
Tragic, doomed, real. This book has haunted me since I read it. Mainly I was completely sold on them as characters and on their relationship. There was such a tenderness and desperation in the way they were trying to fit everything into their limited time together. Broke. My. Heart.
2. Alex Fuentes & Brittney from Perfect Chemistry
I have to admit I’m not a fan of Britney but Alex Fuentes and his six pack totally makes up for it. I love this book.
3. Hermione & Ron from Harry Potter
A romance built on friendship, H &R are one of my all time favourite fictional couples. I love it that they went through so much together with Harry. The best non-love triangle ever invented by an author.
4. Han Solo & Princess Leia from Star Wars
Han Solo was the first fictional boy I ever fell in love with (aged about 7). I would dream I was Princess Leia. And let’s face it, PL is the most awesome princess to ever have graced our screens. Disney could learn a thing or two from her. She’s a brilliant fighter, a fearless leader, witty, smart and a resistance fighter to boot, out to save the galaxy. Han’s a loveable rogue, a pirate, a cynical anti-hero who can’t help but fall for the girl. I love the banter between her and Han.
5. Spike & Buffy
OK, for years I was a Buffy & Angel fan but then something happened – Spike gave that ‘you’re the one’ speech to Buffy and suddenly I was like ‘Angel who?’ This scene is so epically perfect I could watch it over and over and over.
Would you give up immortality for a man? I would for this man. Aragorn – the noble Ranger of the North who leads the hobbits on their quest. I didn’t notice much else on screen beyond Aragorn’s thighs on that horse.
OK, OK, I’m a little biased here, but Jesse – the brooding, book reading, musician who’s great with his hands and known for being trouble is exactly the kind of boy I would fall for as a teenager. And Ren, the English girl who’s a music blogger, book lover and on the verge of giving up on boys altogether and definitely on any notion of there being ‘a one’. Can Jesse change her mind? The chemistry sizzles between them – what do you think?
Thank you soo much, Sarah!! Oh, I'm so a Spuffy girl!! Spike just melts my heart!! And that speech... *sigh* ;)
