My Favourite Couples-(Movies,TV,Literature)+Crazy Shipping
In no particular order,I have included a list my favourite couples in TV shows,movies and fictional novels.Some of the couples are just basically fanboy shipping.Have a look!
Ronald Weasley and Hermione Granger
-They have been bickering throughout the series and yet its one of that kind of relationship where you know they're gonna end up snogging like crazy.In the movies,the chemistry between Rupert Grint and Emma Watson was convincing enough to create the magic between Ron and Hermione.I guess the final scene in the Chamber of Secrets where Hermione hugs Harry and then hesitates to hug Ron was the first clue of their blossoming relationship.The novels are filled with Ron Hermione moments that just makes one to smirk at the pages.
Sansa Stark and Gendry Waters( ASOIAF)
-Sansa realising that no man will ever love her for herself but only for her claim is one of the signs that she is becoming wiser and growing up.In the universe of ASOIAF ,I don't think she would ever meet a nice guy that would love her for herself except for Gendry Waters.Gendry hates the royals and seems to be a guy with principle.Plus their current geographical location makes sense and by these pairing ,the Stark /Baratheon promise made by their fathers can be fulfilled.
Harry Potter and Luna Lovegood
- I always liked Cho Chang and Harry as a couple but after coming across the fan made posters of these two,it kinda feel right.They are both quirky and loners and it would be amazing for these two individual to fall in love.I felt the Ginny /romance part came out of nowhere especially on Harry's part and Ginny looking exactly as Harry's mum makes things a bit creepy.
Achilles and Patroclus( A Song of Achilles)
-The relationship between these two characters are portrayed with dignity and respect by the author Madelline Miller.It's also refreshing to see two masculine male characters falling in love as media loves portray LGBT characters according to stereotypes .The stages of their relationship are depicted beautifully and I liked the fact that Achilles was very human only towards Patroclus and therefore showing love is a very mortal thing.
Daenerys Targaryen and Khal Drogo( A Song Of Ice and Fire)
-A barbaric leader and a virgin exiled Princess..that sounded quite scary .Not to mention Daenerys age in the books and she was basically sold by her brother to Khal Drogo.Every element that could go wrong in a relationship are present in this particular and yet somehow love manages to blossom between these two different individual.She manages to tame his fury and make him more tender and loving while he made her bold and strong.So TV Daenerys and Khal Drogo are a perfect match.
Emma Swan and Regina Mills(Once Upon a Time)
-Well this one falls under the category of shipping.The chemistry between Lana Parilla and Jennifer Morison is so great that even when they at each others throat ,they look so good together as a couple.Wanna be different than other fairy tales adaptation..how about making the Evil Queen falling for Snow White's daughter.That would be really different and bold!Plus Henry gets both his mothers.Everyone is satisfied.
Barney Stinson and Robin Scherbatsky(How I Met Your Mother)
-The womaniser meets the Canadian sweetheart.Legendary!
Elizabeth Bennet and Darcy Williams(Pride and Prejudice 2005)
-growing up as a boy with feminist ideologies ,I find the character Elizabeth to be quite inspiring .I'm a huge fan of Joe Wright movies and this film is no exception.All the long shots looks gorgeous and the chemistry between Keira Knightley and Matthew Macfayden is another plus point.
Arwen and Aragorn(The Lord of The Rings)
-The love between an immortal Elve and a mortal human being.While in the books,very less of Arwen was mentioned,the movies basically immortalised their love story.The fanboy in me screams 'Liv Tyler is so Hot"
Evelyn and Rick(The Mummy)
-Chasing mummies in Egypt with a wife like Rachel Weisz ,thats a dream of every guy.
Yukito Tsukishiro and Touya Kinomoto(Cardcaptor Sakura)
-I was literally 10 when I started watching this anime and I was always intrigued by the relationship of these two male characters.I would be like 'there's something weird about these two' and years later when I re watched the Japanese version , I got a better understanding Yukito and Touya.
Richard Castle and Kate Beckett(Castle)
- They are so funny together!
Ruth& Tommy &Kathy(Never Let Me Go)
-I couldn't choose only two as i feel they fit perfectly as a trio and complement each other really well.Andrew Garfield,Carey Mulligan and Keira Knightlety performance in the film adaptation is equally superb.
Katniss Everdeen and Peeta Mellark(The Hunger Games)
-The only couple in the list where the roles have been reversed and surprisingly it works really well.Katniss being the hunter and tough one complement well with the soft spoken Peeta who is a peace lover.Gale who?
Hans Hubermann and Rosa Hubermann(The Book Thief)
-Even though both of them are always cursing at each other ,they embodies that old couple that everybody knows,the couple that cant stop bickering but love each other very dearly.I would love for Imelda Staunton to play Rosa.
Liesel Meminger and Rudy Steiner(The Book Thief)
-The pure bond between two children during WW2 where hatred slowly changes into love and attraction.
Charlie and Claire(Lost)
-I just love these two.The fact that Charlie wants to be responsible for the first time in his life in order to look after the already preagnant Claire and Claire learning to trust a man even though with her bad history with man.
Charlie Kelmeckis and Sam(The Perks of Being a Wallflower)
-The awkward and naive Charlie meets Sam the girl with a bad reputation who wants to reinvent herself.He loves her genuinely for she is and thats something she never got from her older boyfriends.
Edward Scissorhand and Kim(Edward Scissorhand )
-Winona Forever!That fake snow scene was really beautiful.
Jack Dawson and Rose DeWitt Bukater(Titanic)
-Kate Winslet and Leonardo DiCaprio remains one of the famous couple that ever grace the screen.Its different take of the famous Romeo and Juliet in a ship.
Derek and Stiles(Teen Wolf)
-Okay I dont actually watch this show but the hype and craziness around this couple(shipping) got my attention and after watching few clips in YouTube,I kinda like these two together.I guess its the chemistry between the two actors and funny situations these two end up in.
Whats your favourite couple?Just leave it in the comment section.
Happy Valentine's Day
