Fictional Love Must Last
I recently read Amy and Roger's Epic Detour by Morgan Matson and I fell in love with Amy and Roger's stories. I didn't want the book to end! I was sucked into their story and when the book finished, I kept thinking that in my fictional world of what happens next is that Amy and Roger stay together forever-because I don't think I could handle it if they didn't! So it got me thinking about what other fictional couples I must have stay together forever. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good romance and when I find a great couple, I want them to stay together. Like, I might cry if they ever broke up forever. We all have those, right? (I hope so!) So here's my made up world forever together list:
Side note: My list doesn't include couples who we know stay together (like Anne and Gilbert) but instead couples who stay together in my made up what happens next world.
Katsa and Po in Graceling
-OK, so I know they end the book with an open relationship and all and leave it up to life and fate, but in my mind, they keep that relationship forever and never meet anyone else that's a perfect fit like they are to each other.
Ryan and Sarah in The Unwritten Rule
-I could say this about pretty all of Elizabeth Scott's couples, but Ryan and Sarah in The Unwritten Rule rank among my favorite. They have a sweet, tender romance, even if it is rocky and messy to get there. I read the book wanting them to be together and was happy when they were-so they better stay that way!
-I've also gotta give a shout out about Hannah and Finn from Something, Maybe. I adore them too!
Lucy and Nicholas from Hearts at Stake (The Drake Chronicles)
-Sigh...Nicholas and Lucy. I'm a sucker for romance, but I'm especially a sucker for best friend-turned-romance storylines. So of course I was sucked into Lucy and Nicholas's story! Plus, they have many swoon-worthy moments and lots of witty banter-I love the two of them together. The entire series is good, but I'll admit-I read it for Lucy and Nicholas.
Anna and St Clair from Anna and the French Kiss
-No list of couples who should stay together would be complete without Anna and Étienne St. Clair. SIGH....I fell in love with St. Clair and the romance between Anna and St. Clair is another friendship first that turns to romance. They have a great banter between them, they tease and have fun and they also rely on each other during the serious times. If they ever broke up, I think I would be the one who needed lots of chocolate, break up songs, and kleenex-I couldn't take it! Seriously, stay together Anna and St. Clair-for my sake!!
Veronica and Logan from Veronica Mars
-OK, not a book, but they are fictional characters. And in my made up world of happy endings forever, this two are king and queen. I remember watching season one and hating Logan and then slowly feeling sympathy and understanding for him and then liking him. When Logan and Veronica first kiss, it's a surprise but it makes so much sense you can't help but realize these two were meant to get together all along. The show ended prematurely and I'll admit, I haven't yet watched all of season three because I want to leave the story with Logan and Veronica together. But if I got my way, they'd be together forever!
Who are your fiction couples that must stay together forever?
