12 ONE TRUE PAIRINGS - 06. RYAN ATWOOD & MARISSA COOPER
Fandom: The O.C. Reason: The Pilot episode made me a Ryanissa shipper. Right from the start there was something about these two that I really loved. I don’t know what it was that made me a Ryanissa shipper. But the way he cared about her, the way he saved her every time, the way he never stopped loving her completely and the fact that he wanted to bring her to the airport, when she was about to leave. Oh my gosh, seriously. And when she died, I cried like a baby. My poor Ryan lost his biggest love. I have to admit, Marissa annoyed me like crazy, but when she was with Ryan she was a better person, somehow. I don’t know. They helped each other to grow, to improve and to develop. They loved each other even when they were with someone else and Ryan still loved her after she died. I really loved their relationship, even though it was pretty much fucked up, but it was them. It reflected them as characters, how they were and behaved. Their relationship was full of them, full of love and joy and happiness, but also full of sadness and drama. Maybe that’s why I loved them so much.
12 ONE TRUE PAIRINGS - 03. FREDDIE MCCLAIR & ELIZABETH ‘EFFY’ STONEM
Fandom: Skins Reason: These two are epic but fucked up love. They’ve always loved each other, but still they’re with other people. In the end, they tell those people that they’re in love with someone else. They’re in love with each other and that scene in 4x07 where Freddie visits Effy and she tells him she loves him. I couldn’t breathe. Seriously, it was so perfect, so complete, so unique. I still think this may be the most epic “I love you” scene that exists on this planet, because it really was epic. Everything about them is epic and Freddie really cares about Effy, he really loves her. And she also loves him so much, I can’t..
12 ONE TRUE PAIRINGS - 08. ROSS GELLAR & RACHEL GREEN
Fandom: Friends Reason: I don’t know where to start with these two. I have watched ALL 10 Seasons of this incredible and unique show and enjoyed every second of it. I fell in love with them through all this time that I spent watching this show and everytime when I look at my cupboard and see my 10 Friends DVD Boxes I immediately think of Ross & Rachel and their perfection. Their on and off relationship and their happy ending made me crying rivers and lakes through the entire series finale. My shipping heart broke into a million pieces when Rachel left, leaving Ross behind with Phoebe at the airport. And when she actually got off the plane I was screaming, shouting, crying like never before lol. And when they finally reunited I was in heaven, seriously. They played with my heart for 7 years and 10 seasons now. And it keeps going on, even if the show is already over. They’ll be in my heart forever. For being my first TV Show OTP.
