Greetings My Lovelies!
In honor of Valentine’s Day, I decided to do something a little different this Monday. Instead of reviewing a book, I’m going to talk about my favorite couples in books and other media. Let’s get going.
5. Percy and Annabeth (Olympians and Heroes of Olympus)
I love these two because they don’t start off liking each other. They’re barely even friends. But as the series progress we see them start to recognize each other’s strengths and support each other when lacking. Their romantic feelings evolve slowly over the years until they finally admit their love for each other and fight tooth and nail to stay together. They are a good, healthy relationship that I can stand behind 100%
4. Daine and Numiar (The Immortals)
I loved this couple when I was younger, but now….the age difference is a little cringy. But if you put that all aside, they start off respecting each other. Numair is Daine’s teacher but he never makes her feel inferior. He pushes her to be more and truly seems to care for her. Now at some point, their relationship shifted from mutual respect to attraction. Even they don’t know when it happens. When they realize that they have romantic feelings for each other, they don’t know how to handle it. They don’t want to trap the other in a relationship that they might regret later. Well, that proves to not be true and they have a wonderful marriage built on trust and respect.
3. Feyre and Rhysand (Court Series)
If you haven’t heard by now, I’m a huge fan of Sara J Maas. Of the multitude of couples in her books, Feyre and Rhysand and my hands down favorite. Rhysand is willing to give up his mate and let her marry another man if that is what it takes for her to be happy. Feyre takes in Rhysand’s past abuse (to him) and doesn’t try and make him take part in something that he may not have any desire to do. Both put the other’s emotions above their own. And we all can learn from that.
2. The 11th Doctor and River Song
I’m a third gen Whovian and I love it. The 11th Doctor will always be my favorite because he’s the real reason why I love Doctor Who. And when he and River get together it is nothing but pure gold. I can’t get enough of their sass and love for each other. They play so well off each other that I can’t take my eyes off them.
1. Harlow and Augustine (House of the Rising Sun)
What do you get when a computer hacker who can’t touch people because she gets overloaded with their emotions and an ex-criminal and playboy turn Guardian? A fucking epic story. I love these two. Augustine falls for Harlow the moment he meets her but doesn’t try to push too far. He respects her boundaries. Harlow is a whole heap of issues but eventually she comes to terms with her baggage and realizes that he’s not as bad as she feared (and she hates it). Augustine is not ashamed of his Fae heritage, but Harlow is. Through him, she learns to accept a part of her that she’s tried to ignore. They are so different but come together to create this wonderful duo that is unstoppable. They are their own people, but they are definitely stronger together.
Well. that’s all I got today. Do you have any other favorite couples? Let me know by commenting below.
See ya next time!
