handwritten letters and postcards,
painting onto skin, being dragged outside on sunny days, lying side by side at the top of a hill, moments of inspiration, soft humming and guitar lessons, old dungarees, meandering through art galleries, patience and encouragement,
fighting off the numbness, noticing old scars, letting each other vent, cheap wine and picnic food, things you can’t tell anyone else. (requested by @a-maniac-and-a-queen)
The list is in no specific order. Please beware of spoilers.
Show: Once Upon a Time
Once Upon a Time was my first ever real TV show fandom and Captain Swan my first ever TV OTP. I started watching Once Upon a Time in the beginning of 2014. From the first moment that Emma and Hook met I fell in love with their relationship, even though at the time they were holding knives at each other’s throats. Their relationship has grown so much over the years and I am so happy I got to see it. Captain Swan is one of the best relationships on TV and I am obsessed with it.
Kara and Lena have an amazing relationship. While they are not canon, there is tons of subtext that make fans believe that they are into each other. From lines like “Supergirl may have saved me, but you Kara Danvers, you are my hero.”Kara always puts Lena first and they have such an amazing relationship. Not to mention that Katie McGrath (Lena Luthor) has mentioned the romantic subtext in the character’s “friendship”. However, the ship goes even past the subtext. Even Lena’s name proves she is perfect for Kara. Lena means ray of sun or sunshine and Kara gets her powers from the sun. Supercorp is perfect in every single way and should be canon instead of Karamel.
Show: Doctor Who
Unlike most people, I ship Amy and The Doctor instead of Amy and her husband Rory. I personally think that Rory isn’t adventurous enough for Amy. If you remember, Amy’s first adventure with the Doctor was the night that was supposed to be before her wedding but she called it off to travel. If The Doctor did not take them to Ancient Rome, they would have broken up. I personally do not think that Rory is right for Amy but rather Eleven instead. While the two characters might not be a common ship, a lot of people ship the actors Matt Smith (Eleventh Doctor) and Karen Gillan (Amy Pond). Their relationship is known as Smillan. I think that The Doctor and Amy have so much more chemistry than her and Rory. He was her raggedy man and she was his girl who waited.
Sanvers is an amazing canon relationship on Supergirl between DEO agent Alex Danvers and National City Police Department Detective Maggie Sawyer. Alex Danvers, adopted sister of Kara Zor-El (a.k.a Supergirl / Kara Danvers),and Maggie Sawyer are one of the healthiest sweetest relationships I have ever seen on television. They are both independent badass women who provide for themselves. The only flaw to Sanvers is the minimal screen time the show gives them and the little information we have got about Maggie outside of the relationship.
Show: The 100
Clexa is a relationship between leader of Skaikru and Wanheda Clarke Griffin (leader of the sky people and commander of death) and Heda Lexa kom Trikru (commander Lexa of the tree people) that took over the internet after Lexa was shot right after the two women got together. Fans were so mad about this they even created a convention called ClexaCon. The relationship between bisexual Clarke Griffin and lesbian Lexa was a groundbreaking extremely progressive romance between the two leaders of two groups of people who are fighting.
Kara and James had a short romance that was tragically cut off by Mon-El. James loves Kara and treats her with respect. Kara and James have a lot of chemistry and I can’t believe the writers just threw that all away for such an awful relationship.
Show: Jessica Jones
Jessica Jones and Trish Walker have such an amazing relationship. While it is not canon, there is a lot of subtext that imply it. Krysten Ritter (Jessica Jones) has shown support for the relationship on twitter by retweeting a tweet by actress Chloe Grace Moretz that says “is the plot twist of season 2 Jessica Jones gonna b that Trish and Jessica start dating!?”. The relationship is extremely popular with the shows fandom. However there is some controversy on it because Trish’s abusive mother “took care” Jessica for a while after her parents died in a car crash. Jessica protected Trish from her mother’s abuse and they became really close. A lot of people say their relationship is wrong because they are sisters. However, the characters, and the writers and actors, consider each them best friends, not sisters.
Kara Danvers was Cat Grant’s assistant. Cat Grant is a very independent woman who wants things her way. But, she opened up to both Kara and Supergirl. They are both strong independent women. Cat Grant always gives Kara motivational speaches and helps her live up to her full potential. They have so much more chemistry then Kara and Mon-El and Cat would be so much better for her.
Show: How I Met Your Mother
Barney Stinson and Robin Scherbatsky both thought they would never settle down and get married. Barney Stinson gave up the playbook for her and she settled down for him. They both come from a rough childhood and have commitment issues. They brought out the best in each other. Their divorce was stupid and they gave us no reason why besides so Robin could end up with Ted. They basically woke up in a random hotel room and decided that they should be over. Barney and Robin are perfect for each other and I will forever be bitter that they got divorced.
Show: Doctor Who
While Tenrose never dated, they are canon. Rose got trapped in a parallel universe that was impossible for The Doctor to get back to. However, The Doctor found a way to project a hologram of him there but, in order to do so, he had to burn up a sun. Rose told The Doctor that she loves him and The Doctor was about to say I love you too but was cut off after I because the sun finally burned out. Later, the meta-crisis Doctor (a.k.a. Ten Two) was created using The Doctor’s regeneration energy and has only one heart and does not possess the power to regenerate. The Doctor brought Ten Two to the parallel universe when the rift was open again and Ten Two and Rose got to be together.
Show: Crazy Ex-Girlfriend
Darryl Whitefeather and Josh Wilson are definitely the power couple on the show. Darryl met Josh after his divorce with his wife. He then realized he was bisexual and started dating Josh. Josh and Darryl are so amazing for each other and truly bring out the best in each other. Josh is also amazing with Darryl’s daughter Madison. Darryl and Josh are definitely one of the strongest couples on TV at the moment.
