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.
