5 otps plus 10 facts about me
I was tagged by my neighbor @supricious (yes! you are a ferry away from me :D) Thank you so much! I think it’s a great way to start my day with something like this :)
The ultimate fave: River Song x The Doctor (Doctor Who)
I fell in love with River from the very moment she was introduced into the show, back when David Tennant was the Doctor. She knows everything about him but he has no idea who she is. Why? They keep meeting in the wrong order…so the Doctor seeing River for the first time means that is the last time River will see him. River has adventures on screen with three different incarnations of her husband (Ten, Eleven and Twelve) and her chemistry with each one is unique. (My personal favorite is Twelve, maybe because he is my favorite Doctor, but I cried my eyes out watching their last episode together.)
Thane Krios x Commander Shepard (Mass Effect)

Cassandra Pentaghast x The Inquisitor (Dragon Age)
I spent my first playthroughs ignoring Cassandra (to be more precise, it was the same pt over and over again.) One day I finally bothered to get to know her and I irrevocably fell in love with her. Because my game glitched, Cassandra ended up as the Divine during my male Trevelyan playthrough. Even though I was bummed about it at first, this is what made this couple my ultimate Dragon Age OTP. Bless that glitch. Here’s a little HC I wrote a long time ago about them:
“She serves the Maker and I serve her” -The Inquisitor about Divine Victoria.
Shortly after the Exalted Council, Inquisitor Trevelyan decided that his dragon hunting days were over and went on to study Dracology with Frederic of Serault at the University of Orlais. In the years to come, Ilya became a prominent researcher.
The Inquisitor’s heart remained true to Cassandra and he never married, in spite of her urging. He visited the Divine constantly “on Inquisition related matters”, while in truth, he talked passionately about new theories and discoveries. Cassandra listened closely to his stories, looking away as much as looking at him. Whenever Ilya caught her staring at her own hands, he was able to catch a glimpse of the woman who used to tell him “the sight of you warms the heart” and for a moment, he could feel as if nothing had changed.
Jesse x Celine (The Before Trilogy)
Celine: You don’t want to see me again?
Jesse: No, of course I do. If somebody gave me the choice right now of to never see you again or to marry you, I would marry you.
(Before Sunrise, 1995)
Jesse: In the months leading up to my wedding, I was thinking about you all the time. I mean, even on my way there; I’m in the car, a buddy of mine is driving me downtown and I’m staring out the window, and I think I see you, not far from the church, right? Folding up an umbrella and walking into a deli on the corner of 13th and Broadway. And I thought I was going crazy, but now I think it probably was you.
Celine: I lived on 11th and Broadway.
Jesse: You see?
(Before Sunset, 2004)
Jesse: I’m giving you my whole life, okay? I got nothing larger to give. I’m not giving it to anybody else. If you’re looking for permission to disqualify me, I’m not gonna give it to you. Okay? I love you. And I’m not in conflict about it, okay?
