I started #FridayFavorites back when I started up the blog again and wanted to make sure I kept at least one regular post a week. This was, of course, before I knew there were others out there. But I decided to keep it, especially since I have the whole year planned out. In December, I decided to change it to #FridayFives instead to have more room for topics. If anyone wants to join me, the list for future topics can be found here.
With today’s topic, you don’t have to read fanfiction to participate. What I really mean with this topic is what couples from literature would you have wanted to be together but weren’t in the book(s).
- Hermione & Draco (or Pansy): Is it cheating to include two different people that I would’ve wanted with Hermione? Maybe. But I don’t care. I’ve always thought when reading the books that Hermione needed someone to challenge her but also be there to say you’ve been at this project for five days with no sleep, go to bed! I’ve just never thought Ron could be that for her. With either Draco or Pansy, she is allowed to be challenged and cared for in the way she needs.
- Zélie & Amari (from Children of Blood and Bone): Okay, I absolutely loved how the relationship between Zélie and Amari came about. From hatred to unwilling travel companions to friends, by the end of the first book. I haven’t read the second book in the series because life (plus, I need to re-read the first one). I just thought there was a lot of chemistry between these two young women and would’ve loved if there was a romantic relationship explored between them.
- Verity & Maddie: I love, love, love the friendship between Verity and Maddie and am not upset that their relationship was only a friendship. BUT, I would’ve loved if there was more there because I definitely can see it happening between them, especially with everything they’ve gone through.
- Natasha Romanoff & Maria Hill: I know they’re not in the movies a lot, but I do not care! I love them and think they would be great together. They would totally kick ass and take names.
- Monica Rambeau & Darcy Lewis: As soon as Monica and Darcy had there first interaction, I was gone! I absolutely am here for this ship and want more scenes with them. I’ve always been a big fan of Kat Dennings (and her character Darcy) and am in love with adult Monica. I hope there’s more of them and that Marvel will stop being so heteronormative.
Happy Reading Darlings!
