Hello all and happy Tuesday! Considering it is Valentines Day this weekend, I thought I’d take the time to write a little Top Five all romance related, meaning that this week I’m going to be talking about my current Top Five fictional couples! I’ve written a piece like this a few years ago, but I thought I’d write an updated version for this year.
Tohru Honda and Kyo Sohma | Fruits Basket
Now, how can I start this post without mentioning these beauties. This couple is my all-time favourite in the Fruits Basket universe, and has been since I was a little girl. I admire their strength and perseverance so much and it means so much to me whenever I see them interact on screen or on the page. They’re adorable, and I have spent many childhood evenings watching compilations of the two on them on YouTube. How can you not love them?
Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell | Stalking Jack the Ripper
Audrey Rose Wadsworth and Thomas Cresswell are personally one of my favourite couples across YA Fiction, namely because of their pure adoration for each other. Although, this was an arguably slow burn romance, they become closer across the four books and I fell hard for their antics. Thomas’s pure adoration for Audrey Rose was beautiful, and an incredibly addictive page turner. Just reading him say her name was enough to project his love for her across the pages. If the Victorian Era wasn’t enough to lure you into the series, the spark and respect these two have for another is. They’re just perfection.
Nymphadora Tonks and Remus Lupin | Harry Potter
I can’t write this list without starting with one of my favourite fictional couples of all time. Lupin and Tonks were a beautiful tragedy in the series, having to overcome so much hatred and pain to be together. They deserved so much better, and although, they had their disagreements and problems, they came together in the end to overcome a higher power to make the world a better place for their child. They’re an incredibly underrated couple within the series, and I love everything about them.
Tina Goldstein and Newt Scamander | Fantastic Beasts
As anyone who follows this blog will know, my love knows no bounds for this series; I adore it. So, naturally when it comes to this list, one of which has to be dedicated to my favourite fictional couple from the franchise. The pair understand each other on a level that not many of those around them do, and its instances throughout the series where we discover them coming out of their shells around another. They bounce off each other perfectly. Tina appears stand-offish at the beginning of the series, yet gradually melts around Newt whilst he overcomes his socially awkwardness around her. It’s the perfect love story.
Hanna Marin and Caleb Rivers | Pretty Little Liars
So, these pair have been through some struggles, and yet they’re the most solid couple in the series. Caleb is very protective of Hanna, knowing all she’s struggled with in the past and yet continues to watch over her. That’s not to say that Hanna is in any way weak, more the opposite, but she somewhat melts around Caleb, allowing her the time to recharge and be her vulnerable self in his arms. It’s a beautiful relationship from start to finish, and I truly love this couple. They’re the highlight of the series for me.
