If this is a duplicate thread, I’m very sorry. I hate to resurrect old threads.
So, CAF, I like a good love story, either happy or unhappy. What are your favorite romances and romantic pairings from books and television shows and such? I’ve been watching a lot of anime lately so I’ll start with that.
Two of my favorites are Ishida and Orihime and Renji and Rukia from Bleach. Neither of these is official, but the hints for them are definitely there. The first two have a very silly, flaky dynamic that just works for them, and Renji and Rukia are a great story of childhood friends who separated and then were reunited.
Also, despite (no, because of, I lie) it having a very bad end, I also have a soft spot for Captain Aizen and Lieutenant Hinamori. I know Aizen’s the villain and that he tried to kill her, but beforehand, when he was pretending to be a good man, it’s lovely and bittersweet.
Also, William and Emma in the manga Emma. It’s classic star-crossed lovers, but when they’re together and believe they can be together they’re cute and blushy. I also think Emma the maid is a great heroine, the way she’s willing to sacrifice him for what she sees as his own greater good.
