In Which I Steal A Tag

Hello peoples! I'm stealing the Five Favorite Couples Tag from Olivia, because I feel like it and I'M THE TAG ROBIN HOOD. Olivia was rich in tags, I'm poor in tags, let's call it even. :)

1.)  Pick one couple from each category
2.)  Tagging is optional
3.)  Link back to my site

1.) Period Drama Couple
2.) Sci-Fi/Fantasy Couple
3.) Superhero Couple
4.) Preferred Couple (from a love triangle)
5.) Couple Ended Too Soon

Well...I couldn't find the link to the original site, so I'll skip that. ;)

1.) Period Drama Couple

Beatrice and Benedick from Kenneth Branagh's Much Ado About Nothing

Shakespeare totally counts as Period Drama. :) Anyway, this witty couple is such the best. (If I had to pick more of a period drama period drama, I'd do Eleanor and Edward from the 1995 Sense & Sensibility. They're really cute too! I know they both contain Emma Thompson and alliteration. My two favorite movies are extremely similar; what can I say?) I love them SO. MUCH.
"The world must be peopled!" Kenneth Branagh is a genius.

2.) Sci Fi/Fantasy Couple
(No pic, sorry)
Cinder and Kai from the Lunar Chronicles

They're the best. All the other ships in the series are adorable, but Cinder and Kai are the best. If you haven't read the series, do so IMMEDIATELY. (It's technically futuristic fiction or something like that, but you know what? No one likes labels anyway. ;) )

3.) Superhero Couple

Natasha and Bruce from The Avengers

So...Natasha is with Cap for a while? I did not know this. All I know is, these guys.
"You still think you're the only monster on the team?"

4.) Preferred Couple (From a Love Triangle)
(Again, no pic.)
Blue and Gansey from the Raven Cycle (over Blue and Adam)

So this is all kinds of cheating, because I've only read the first book and it is clear that a) Blue and Gansey are true loves and b) neither of them is conscious of romantic feelings toward each other and c) Adam and Blue have romantic feelings for each other. However, despite my love of Adam, this ship is all kinds of perfect. (Also, this question was super hard because I don't read many love triangles, and the only ones I could think of were either super obvious (such as Percabeth, which is forever) or ones I couldn't decide on (Wild Swans by KM Shea).)


5.) Couple That Ended Too Soon

Anita and Bernardo from West Side Story

MY BLEEDING HEART. When Bernardo tragically died, I literally sobbed uncontrollably for the rest of the movie. I LOVE LOVE LOVE this ship--even more than Tony and Maria, actually. While Tony and Maria had a dreamy, otherworldly relationship destined to end in tragic death, Bernardo and Anita had a good, solid relationship founded on good ol' fashioned sarcasm and loving insults.
"I don't know what's thicker, your skull or your accent!" I loved them so. much. I never expected Bernardo to die. I loved these guys. I'm dying.

Spoilers over!

So there you have it, folks. While I have yet to post the tag I was actually tagged for, I stole one. I am as ever a wicked, wicked tag thief. See you later!
