Story Time: English class, with my wonderful teacher. (It’s a homeschool class, with maybe 20 students.) We were discussing poetry, and the topic of conversation was William Shakespeare’s Sonnets. One girl (obviously a fangirl,) cried, “I ship it.”
My poor teacher. She was like, “what on earth are you talking about?” So the girl repeated herself. “I ship it.” My teacher had no idea what she was talking about. No one really wanted to try and explain our craziness to the world, so eventually, my teacher gave up, and turned back to discussing people that were like summer days.
Read on for ship worthy fictional couples. ❤
Reading fiction has its ups and downs. like the FEELZ. If you’ve read anything lately, especially in YA, you’ll notice that there is some aspect of love in it. and FEELZ tend to come along with it, whether related to love, or not. fangirl squeals tend to come along too, but only at the best fictional couples.
(might be some spoilers, so read with care)
7. Marguerite and Percy
MY, did I have different feelings when I first started reading The Scarlet Pimpernel. But this couple is totally awesome, and unique in their own ways. Everyone, go read The Scarlet Pimpernel RIGHT NOW if you haven’t.
6. Scout and Dill
Now, who doesn’t love innocent child “romance?” It’s from To Kill A Mockingbird, so you know it’s good. Look at them. They look like a little gang. 😛 Scout, Jem, Dill.
5. Anne Shirely and Gilbert Blythe
Even though I didn’t like Anne (gasps come from crowd), the two of them are just perfect for each other. And super cute.
4. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy
So, my English teacher introduced me to Pride and Prejudice. I loved the book, (seriously, this is a classic. Read it.) and the relationships. The turmoil, anxiety, drama… And (finally) the sweet relationship that begins.
‘I cannot fix on the hour, or the spot, or the look, or the words, which laid the foundation [of love]. It is too long ago. I was in the middle before I knew that I had begun.” -Mr. Darcy
3. Arwen and Aragorn
She gave up immortality to wait for him. That’s dedication right there. Besides, Elf-Princesses and Kings, you know?
2. Annabeth Chase and Percy Jackson
Notice that the fanart is from the BOOK, not the movie. (saves that rant for later.) Anyway, he denied immortality for her. AND he went to Tartarus with Annabeth. Besides, who doesn’t grow to love someone by fighting monsters alongside them? I’ll also add that their dates are the best.
Buttercup and Wesley
Tru Wuv. Right here folks. Not only were the book and movie the best ever, but you couldn’t help but root for the Dread Pirate Roberts and Buttercup. And, the guy died for her. (Well, he was mostly dead. Not all the way dead. They are quite different.) Let’s also point out that he saved everyone from an unnecessary war, and rescued Buttercup. Quite a feat.
What are your favorite fictional couples???
