You know, I’ve just realised that I don’t think I’ve declared my ships or OTPs* all in one place before. When I’m reviewing a book, sure, I’ll screech on and on about my little darlings and how perfect they are and send out multiple painful threats to anything that endangers their blissful future and existence… but outside of reviews, I don’t really talk about them too much. I’ve been debating on how to approach this topic without it turning into a spoiler-filled mine field, and I think I’ve succeeded in being as vague on the specifics as I possibly can be! (Also, this list isn’t in any particular order. RANKING my OTPs... that's a pain I couldn't even imagine enduring!)
I want to mention that the characters I’m including in this list aren’t necessarily cannon ships/OTP’s, nor are they official endgames. It’s just who I personally ship within each book/trilogy/series, and I’ll probably attempt to launch a rescue fleet to save my little darlings if one hair on their heads is in any danger of being damaged. Not that I'm obsessed about this. Of course not! What in the world would give you that idea... *cough*
* Note: OTP = One True Pairing; and Ship = Relationship.
I'm linking up with Top Ten Tuesday, which is a weekly meme run by The Broke and the Bookish. This weeks topic is a Valentine's Day themed freebie.
Elizabeth Bennet and Mr Darcy
Pride and Prejudice is one of my favourite books of all-time, so it isn’t too much of a surprise that I ship Lizzie Bennet and Mr Darcy to the ends of the earth! If I read any book that has a similar romance to P&P, then I’m in heaven.
Hermione and Draco
Yes. I ship Dramione. There. I admitted it! But… it’s not really that surprising that I’d ship these two. I could imagine them becoming the Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy of the Wizarding World! Seriously, there is not enough YES and NEED in the universe to cover how I feel about this. It would be perfect! I ship them SO. FREAKING. HARD, and they’re probably my OTP to end all OTPs.
Rachel and Tobias
Rachel and Tobias was my ultimate OTP before I even knew what an OTP was! The Animorphs series was one of the first Sci-Fi series I fell in love with, and… yeah, it was helped by loving these two characters so much! (I’m still not over that ending, by the way. And I read it 14 years ago!)
Isobel and Varen
These two would easily make it into my top three OTPs of all-time list. (Please don't make me create that list! I beg you. It'd kill me!) I love them individually, I love them together as a couple, and they are just all kinds of PERFECT. And, yes, I ship it with all my heart!
Katniss and Peeta
Perfect, perfect, perfect! That’s all I can say about these two. I mean, how could you NOT love the boy with the bread? HOW??
Alyssa and Morpheus
I think everyone on the planet knows my feelings on this one by now! I will only say this: Morpheus. Is. Life.
Celaena and Chaol
Don’t mind me. I’ll be over here, championing my ship. Forever. Carry on, carry on!
Fayre and Tamlin
*Reads A Court of Mist and Fury synopsis*
*Stares at plans for my Faylin Citadel* 10,000 foot walls should be high enough, right? … Hum, no, better make it 20,000. Just to be safe. Oh, and maybe I should start with plans for an Armada to defend my darlings…
Lia and Kaden
These two are perfect together. P.E.R.F.E.C.T. Sorry, but it's impossible convince me otherwise!
Aria and Roar
I know I said my list would be OTPs, but I HAVE to include my most loved BrOTP. Their friendship in the Under the Never Sky series was all sorts of perfect, and I actually preferred it to the romance sub-plot.
Thanks for stopping by, and Happy Reading!
