TTT: My Top 10 OTPs


It`s Valentine`s Day tomorrow, and I`ll probably spend it binge-watching "How To Get Away With Murder" and eating too much chocolate. And yes, I`m still happily married, but my husband is away with his friends and we don`t celebrate Valentine`s Day anyway. Because I find it commercial and I don`t need a day to show my love. However, since I don`t want to be a total Grinch ( who`s his Valentine`s counterpart?) I`ll share with you 5 of my bookish OTPs and 5 of my TV Shows OTPs.

MY BOOK OTPs:

  • Katniss and Peeta from "The Hunger Games"
This was my first bookish OTP, and I`m nostalgic every time I think about it. Peeta is probably my number one book boyfriend because he`s kind, altruistic and reliable. He reminds me a lot of my husband. And to me, Peeta was exactly what Katniss needed: hope that life can still be worth living even after what they endured.

  • Will and Louisa from "Me Before You"
I hate reading romance books, but this was such a pleasant surprise. Louisa was such a fun and quirky character, and I loved how she made such an impact on Will`s life. I know the ending is quite controversial so I won`t get into that. But they`re still one of my dearest OTP.

  • Simon and Blue from "Simon vs. the Homo Sapiens Agenda"

These two are the cutest! I love that the fact that they fell in love online, proving that love is more about a connexion and less about physical infatuation. I can`t wait to see the movie!

  • Mr Darcy and Elizabeth from "Pride and Prejudice"
I wasn`t the biggest fan of the novel, but I loved their interactions. I`m a big fan of those relationships where both partners challenge each other and bring out the best in each other.

  • Scarlett and Rhett from "Gone With The Wind"
I`m technically cheating on this one, as I`m having this decision based on the movie. But hey, I girl can dream about Clark Gable, can`t she?

MY TV SHOWS OTPs:
  • Monica and Chandler from "Friends"

Can we all stop with the nonsense, and agree that Monica and Chandler were the real couple of "Friends"? Personally, I couldn`t give a damn about Rachel and Ross`s "will they-won`t they" shtick. It was useless drama. Monica and Chandler had their personal issues, but they worked on them together. He made her more mellow and she made him grew up.
  • Seth and Summer from "The O.C."
Seth was my ideal boyfriend when I was a teenager and to this date, I still have a crush on Adam Brody. He was sarcastic, smart and caring - the nerd chasing the popular girl. And although the popular girl was nasty at first, she turned out to be sweet, intelligent and loyal. They were the perfect match! (and that Spider-Man kiss was just goals)
  • Jess and Rory from "Gilmore Girls"

The most divisive thing in the Gilmore Girl fan base is deciding who was Rory`s ideal boyfriend. I still insist it was Jess. Although he was a jerk sometimes, he grew up and turned into a reliable guy that made it on his own. Plus, the guy loved reading so I don`t know why we`re still debating this.
  • Veronica and Logan from "Veronica Mars"
You can say that I have a thing for lost causes or the bad-boy with a heart of gold. I know, it`s such a cliche. But I suppose it all comes down to character development and acting.
  • Lily and Marshall from "How I Met Your Mother"
They represent one of the healthiest relationships I`ve seen on television. They support and love each other throughout the good and the bad. Although they have their ups and downs, it`s not for useless drama. This is the couple that reminds me the most of my marriage, and for that, it will always have a special place in my heart.

Here are 10 of my favourite fictional couples. I could have included more, but I`ve decided to stay away from controversial pairings. Anyways, let me know in the comments which of these couples do you like. Or which one you hate, I`m always up for a good old-fashion debate.

  3. Simon and Blue! Monica and Chandler! Jess and Rory! Veronica and Logan! You clearly have very good taste when it comes to picking your OTPs. I couldn't stand all of the Ross/Rachel drama (they were not good for each otherrr), but Monica and Chandler were hysterical and adorable. And Jess was best fit out of the three guys, at least in his later years when he got his act together.

  10. YES for Seth and Summer from "The O.C."!!!! Oh I miss that show so much and I never hear anyone really talk about it anymore. My hubby is from there, and we head down there a few times a year to visit family, so we use to be obsessed about watching shows that were in the OC. While the others were meh okay this one was amazing! Did I mention I miss that show?! Fabulous list and I also love Lily and Marshall and Katniss and Peeta too!
