and my favorite movie couple

3

The “me” couple are not really partners. They may love each other; they may be happy enough. But they don’t operate as effectively in love or work as the “we” couple. The “we” couples are unquestionably a team. You see it in their body language and especially in their speech. And when they have successes or problems they view it as something happening to both of them.

Favorite Couples, Past & Present

By Charity / ENFP Mod

I told my co-mods to do their own thing. I intended to do a list of my favorite romantic movies but… truthfully, it’s the couples that interest me. I also noticed a distinct pattern when compiling my list of favorite couples: they improve one another in being together, or lead each other on a redemptive path!

Monroe & Rosalee, Grimm (ESFJ + NFP)

They’re adorable. They support one another. They stand beside each other. They overcome arguments, face their differences, and compliment each other. One of my favorite episodes is when they come under persecution for marrying someone of a different “kind” – a group takes Monroe, and Rosalee stops at nothing to get him back. They’re the only reason I still watch Grimm.

Damon & Elena, The Vampire Diaries (ENTP + ESTJ)

Stefan is the better man, but I like that Elena brings out Damon’s humanity. He tries to become a better individual for her, and in the process starts finding his true self. You can’t force someone to change, but sometimes they will change for you. I liked seeing the shift in their dynamic, as it slowly built up over a few seasons, from hatred to love.

Erik & Christine, The Phantom of the Opera (INTJ + ISFJ)

This one doesn’t have a happy ending, but that’s fine – I’m okay with sad endings. It’s also not a healthy relationship at all, with Erik manipulating and controlling Christine… but what I like about it is that Erik is redeemed through love; he finally lets go, and truly loves Christine, in giving her up – in recognizing through her kiss that true love is sacrificial.

Oscar & Lucinda, Oscar & Lucinda (NFPs?)

This film is a tragedy and I’d love to punch the author in the face for the ending, but Oscar and Lucinda are so adorable, so perfect for one another, so quirky, with all the same flaws, that 90% of the story is utter delight in watching two unique souls find one another and dream big together.

Lex & Lana, Smallville (INTJ + ISFJ)

Don’t get me started on the train wreck this ship turned into due to incompetent writers – what I loved most about Lexana was that they made one another stronger, better people. Lex never tried to protect her, he handed her the tools to protect herself and challenged her to grow up; Lana was a moral balance, a compassionate voice of reason in his darkest hours.

Adama & Roslin, Battlestar Galactica (ESTJ + INFJ)

What I loved about this show, other than the TOUGH QUESTIONS it asked week after week (like, would you sacrifice many to save more lives? is stealing an election to prevent a horrible person coming to power still immoral?) was this duo – the “father and mother” of the fleet. They started out distrusting and hating one another, even planning to assassinate each other (yes, that’s how epic it was) and by the end, as they guided one another toward greater faith in the unknown (on his part) and more stability and moral decisions (her part), somewhere along the way they fell in love. And the series gutted me with it. But that’s fine, it’s part of the beauty of this pairing.

Darcy & Lizzie, Pride & Prejudice (INTJ + ENFP)

I know, it’s a cliche to love this pairing, but there’s something emotionally fulfilling to me about the repressed, socially awkward, super-rude Darcy falling in love with the opinionated, witty, flippant Lizzie. This is my favorite adaptation because Lizzie’s personality is so marvelous (I know, I know, somewhere twelve former friends are getting ready to lynch me), but I love them all.

But… my favorite romantic film is…

Emma (1996)

Jeremy Northam’s Knightley is far more likable and charming to me than any other variation – elegant, with a hint of teasing beneath his criticisms, while Gwyneth Paltrow’s Emma is so catty I can’t help loving her. Everything about it from the picturesque shots to the wry humor (Knightley, standing in front of an enormous house, deadpans, “I just want to stay here, where it’s cozy”) and especially the proposal beneath an enormous, sprawling tree, is perfect.

Happy Valentine’s Day, Tumblr!

Hi, my name is Madeline. I’m a 17 year old lesbian from the USA and I have no idea how to make friends. 

Fun facts:

-I’m into visual art and writing. I also love learning about biology (I plan on studying vet med)

– I like Gorillaz, Sufjan Stevens, Led Zeppelin, and old RnB is my jam. I’m into sci-fi, including Star Trek and Star Wars, and a couple of my favorite movies are Moonlight and Inside Llewyn Davis.

– My ideal future involves either having a tiny farm with goats and bees or living in a cave and scaring hikers that pass by. Either is fine. I also like flannel and whittling so maybe I should be a lumberjack or something.

I don’t really mind if we don’t share a ton of interests, as long as you’re up for conversation! Tell me about your day, or politics, philosophy, lizards(?), whatever. I’d ideally like to get a real friendship out of this and make a connection with someone.

Hope to hear from you soon!

got to see beauty and the beast~ it was good! i dont see why remakes are even needed considering they, for the most part, follow the exact same script as the original, minus a few minor changes, but i grew up a disney girl and getting to relive some of my favorite movie moments was kind of awesome ; v ; a couple of the musical numbers i think were a bit too much???? it was hard to follow some of them and hard to understand what they were saying, but then again i know the words by heart so yknow i guess i wasnt bothered too much.

I DUNNO all in all while i liked getting to re-experience one of my favorite disney movies, ultimately it was just beauty and the beast again. it was pretty cool to watch, but obviously my heart will still belong to the animated classic~

Get to know me meme: My 25 Favorite movie and TV couples/relationships

(23/25) Blake and Amy in the documentary Amy from 2015. Amy Winehouse and Blake Fielder. I have been in love with Amy Winehouse since I was a little girl, and when she died I cried for hours. I think Amy and Blake were perfect for each other.
