favorite-romance

Confession:  I really want someone to make tarot cards for Oghren, Shale, and Duncan.

Oghren and Shale are my favorite non romance characters, out of all three games. I know many people probably hate Oghren, find him obnoxious, or even hate Shale because of the attitude she has.

Duncan…even though he dies, even though many people in the fandom hate him because he forces the Warden to join, I still really love him. He resembles my father, in a way.

This is a strange confession I know. I just want to see tarot cards for the three characters I will always love and know that there are some people in the fandom who agrees with me.

If I’m alone, that’s okay too. I won’t have to share them. c’:

My Favorite of the Race of Men

Okay, so in no particular order, my 10 favorite humans:

  1. Tar-Ancalime: Numenor’s first ruling queen, Tar-Ancalime is probably the best thing I got out of reading The Unfinished Tales (and that’s saying something, because I freaking love that book.) And I’ve written before about how much I relate to her (except for the whole monarch part, lol.)
  2. Faramir: Honestly, who doesn’t love Faramir? Boy’s got a heart of gold, and while the movies didn’t focus as much on this, he really stands out in the books as an upstanding sort of guy (and given Tolkien’s tendency towards Pure And Noble heroes, that’s saying something.)
  3. Andreth: Not only do I just love Andreth on her own (she’s smart and wise and shares her lore with Finrod and wants so badly to understand her people’s place in this world) but she’s also one half of one of my favorite romances in Middle Earth.
  4. Cirion: In my opinion, Gondor’s greatest ruling steward. Established Gondor’s most important alliance, is to thank for the creation of Rohan, and generally a pretty great guy. And I just love his friendship with Eorl.
  5. Eomer: Aaw, Eomer. He’s been one of my favorites from the very beginning. I mean, talk about holding down the fort. This guy was trapped in a pretty tight spot (Theodred dead, Theoden controlled by Grima, Grima recognizing Eomer as the last obstacle in his path), but he still does everything in his power to protect Rohan. Also, this happened.
  6. Queen Beruthiel: Granted, we don’t know too much about her. But what description we do get for Beruthiel is straight-up Disney evil queen status, and that’s a really beautiful thing.
  7. Helm Hammerhand: Okay, so was Helm good at diplomacy? No, not really. But the dude was just cool. Oh, you think your son should marry my daughter? Let’s talk about that outside - WHAM! No more Freca. And he only got more badass as things got worse - stalking his enemies camps during blizzards like a snow-troll? Grade-A awesome.
  8. Tuor: You know what? I really love Tuor. He’s pretty much your classic epic fantasy hero (son of a great warrior, raised by elves, chosen by a demigod to deliver an important message to a hidden kingdom, falls in love with a princess, becomes a lord of the city, fights bad guys, sails off into the sunset), but he just does it all so well. And I will never stop being fascinated by the way Tolkien uses Tuor and Turin as foils for each other.
  9. Aghan: Okay, this ones’ kind of obscure, but bear with me. In the short story Tolkien included in the Druedain chapter of the Unfinished Tales, the main Drug character is Aghan, and I kind of think he’s the bee’s knees. He’s such a good friend to Barach and his family, and works some of the coolest and most mysterious magic you’re going to see among the race of men. I actually recorded his story here, if you’re interested.
  10. Haleth: Could anyone who does not consider Haleth to be one of their favorite humans please come to the principle’s office? Because we’re going to have to have a long talk about recognizing perfection when it’s right in front of you.

[Flower Boy Next Door Episode 13]

I really like how often Dok-Mi and Enrique attempt to communicate about real things. They aren’t caught in a loop where they reaffirm that they are in love. They are constantly checking in with each other even when it is not only difficult but also during those times when saving face would be not only easier but kinder. Neither one is willing to risk miscommunication and I love it.

So one of my favorite romance tropes (when it is done right) is when the couple goes shopping and there is a little fashion show. Like most romance tropes, it can fail and be a horrible miss, but I was delighted with Dok-Mi and Enrique’s shopping date. For me, it was the highlight of the episode. Let me tell you why!

It starts with Enrique being the one to try on clothes for Dok-Mi. He even says earlier in the episode: don’t girls like dressing their boyfriends to fit their style? He is so excited to do that for her. Of course, being Enrique he picks the most ridiculous jackets and combinations but they are both having fun when she rejects his choices.

Now, this is where the trope gets tricky–Dok-Mi’s outfits. Is the girl just an object for the boy to dictate to or is she choosing what to wear and enjoying his reactions. If she isn’t having fun, if he’s constantly rejecting or putting her in hyper sexualized attire, then it is just another piece of sexism that makes us uncomfortable.

Look at her face! Look at the entire sequence! She is putting on cute clothes and having so much fun as Enrique likes everything she comes out in. There is a sense that these are her choices. She is playful. This is something they are doing together–as evidenced at the attempt to purchase couple’s shirts.

There isn’t any point that Dok-Mi is a reluctant or uncomfortable participant and that is important, especially for a girl taking steps to believe that she can attain her own dream.

Angel 30 Days Challenge

Day 3: FAVORITE ROMANCE - Cangel (is that even a surprise)

I’m a HUGE Cangel shipper and would die for them! Here’s why:

Angel and Cordelia were so perfect for each other. No one would ever even think about those two completely different people becoming best friends and eventually falling in love when they were still in Sunnydale. But they did.

And it was beautiful.

In the beginning of season 1 it was fairly obvious Angel was annoyed with Cordelia at times (Rm w/ a Vu), but when Doyle asked him about her he would describe her with this cute smile on his face. And after Doyle died Angel and Cordelia were the ones left behind and they grew closer. Of course Wesley joined them, but they had a stronger bond. And this is how it stayed - them being closer to one another than anyone else. By the end of the season 1 Angel saw Cordelia as his dearest friend and he knew he needed her and that she’s very important to him. 

They took care for each other like no one else did. No one cared for Cordy like Angel did and no one cared for Angel like Cordy did. This is portrayed very well in Epiphany when Cordelia gets a vision and Angel catches her before she falls and then she asks Wesley and Gunn, who were standing in front of her like always, why is she not on the floor this time - implicating they never caught her when Angel was not around. 

They also made each other smile and laugh and they lit up the room sometimes. Cordelia was a natural when it came to making Angel smile like an idiot. No one did that as well as she did. He became broody quickly when she wasn’t around - season 5 - he didn’t smile as much anymore. And if it weren’t for You’re Welcome, I don’t know if I’d have noticed it so quickly. The moment he saw her, his smile lit up his whole face. And he hugged her so tightly! And even did a teeny-tiny dance! He got his energy and will back immediately. He was so happy with her by his side. And so was she. She always stood beside him. 

Angel and Cordelia trusted each other and believed in each other perpetually. This was very obvious at a lot of occasions. Starting with Somnambulist. Ending with You’re Welcome. He was often worried about how others would accept his past and the things he’s done and if they’d distinguish him from Angelus. But there was Cordy who could always make him feel better and re-assured him she sees his good side and that that side dominates when it comes to her perception. 

They always saw each other’s better sides, no matter what. And they always stood by each other’s sides. Angel never left her side when she was in coma and was always so amazingly happy when she woke up! They needed each other really badly and that was evident in so many cases. He said it like a million of times and he meant it every single time. Their personalities were so different at first - she was carefree, had the brightest smile in the whole LA. He was this serious, broody kind of a guy. And they had such a big influence on one another - she realized they all share a mission and that she is a HUGE part of it, and his smile could lit up a city. 

We also saw what would happen to Angel without Cordelia. He would have gone insane after Doyle’s death because he would have been all alone. And he would inherit the visions which would make him completely incapable to be in the outside world whatsoever. She was his link to humanity, she showed him the importance of fighting for the good in this world. And she also learnt that her place was with him, fighting, and so she accepted the visions and became a part-demon.

Even the PTB saw the importance of Cordelia for Angel when they sent her to him in You’re Welcome.

They grew close to each other and at the end of season 3 it was obvious even to a blind man that they were in love and that it was very mutual. The whole season 3 was a Cangel dream! All moments with them and Connor (especially at the beginning and end of Provider) made them even more connected. They felt so comfortable with each other and that was very evident in Benediction when Angel was telling her about Connor’s skills in the bar fight - and the way he was sitting and the way she was lying on his bed were more of an intimate nature. Like two people who feel completely comfortable around each other. Angel was very well aware of his feelings for Cordelia - if it weren’t for Lorne and Fred he would never be. Cordy, on the other hand, didn’t see Angel as someone she would be in love with, even though it was very clear she was. In Benediction when Angel leaves, she tries to get him to stay, and then when she’s closing up she sees a man and convinced it’s Angel, she happily runs to him, with a LOT of love reflecting in her voice when she says that she’s so happy he stayed, only to see it’s actually Groo, and the dissapointment was so obvious, I felt sorry for poor Groo for a second. 

I loved the scene where both Groo and Lorne were proving Angel and Cordelia that they are really in love and that is mutual. It was so perfectly put together. 

Their relationship (whether is was platonic or romantically colored) was full of mutual respect. And I think this is one of the most important things in any relationship.

But sadly, they never got their happily-ever-after ending (no one did as a matter of fact). In season 4 a lot of things were going on and Angel saw that the woman who looked like Cordy wasn’t truly her and he never held any grudge for the things “Cordelia” did. 

The way he wanted to take care of her in season 4 is so heartcrushing. He remembered all those small details about her likings and he always made sure she had everything she needed. It crushed him when she didn’t know who he was. He wanted her to remember him, everything they shared and his effort was so sweet and cute. Especially when he took her up to her room and she saw the shoes she was wearing in the Waiting in the Wings and he immediately told her something about that night - that they went to a ballet and that they had such an amazing night and that he wishes she could remember that night. And when they almost kissed, but didn’t - it crushed my heart. He missed her so much and loved her so much and he wished she could remember him, but she didn’t and he had to give her her space and let her be alone. 

They had this really big question they both wanted answered - were they in love - and he only knew for himself which he admitted immediately, but then they had to figure out if she felt the same way and when she got her memory back and they got the answer … It was really really sad. Angel looked so torn, so sad. 

Their love was so great, but they never got to experience it. They never had what they both wanted so badly. 

(Plus Cangel was the only ship from the Bangel/Cangel/Spuffy ships that was shipped by both actors)

30 Day Buffy Challenge: Day 9- favorite romance: Buffy x Angel!!

There is no competition in this department!!! Buffy and angel have always been my favorite couple!! Buffy didn’t have to fall in love with Angel, but she loved him even though he was considered “the worst” match for her (her being a slayer and him being a vampire) and even after Angel became “Angelus” for a while and all the horrible things he did… In the end she still loved him… The end of their relationship was the hardest… They both loved each other so much and no matter how hard she tried Buffy could t find someone to replace the love she had for Angel.

When Buffy showed up to Angels place on his show for the one episode he was human… God that episode is eternally my favorite!! “I will remember you” was the episode where every fans dream came true!! They got to spend a whole day together not worrying about anything else around them… Until he had to turn back time to keep her safe. He has to live the rest I his life remembering the most perfect day of his 200+ years that he had the one woman he truly lived… And now she forgets and will never know the amazing time they had together…

Through all of their ups and downs they still love each other and are always there for each other no matter what!!
