hey everyone! i’ve been seeing this tag around the blogosphere lately, and while i haven’t been tagged, it looked so fun and i still wanted to do it.
explanation: i put 10 girl character’s names in a cup and 10 boy character’s names in another cup. i then picked one from each and decided if they’d make a cute couple or not.
- natasha kingsley (the sun is also a star by nicola yoon) and august pullman (wonder by r.j. palacio)
hmm….let’s forget the age difference for a second….
ugh, this is tough. it’s hard to judge natasha’s personality because there’s two of them: her before she meets daniel, and her after she meets daniel.
ok, that’s still a no. natasha loves science, and while Auggie is pretty good at school, i just can’t see them together. their personalities and lives are too different. i feel like natasha would maybe make better friends with auggie, and that natasha would pity auggie more than actually like him.
i rip this ship.
2. hermione (harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and augustus waters (the fault in our stars by john green)
hmmmm, yeah, i ship it! i feel like hermione is a tough character to get into a romantic relationship with, but augustus could definitely manage to attract her and charm her. they’d actually be so cute together- they’d care about each other a lot. and guys i know this is weird, but THEIR KIDS WOULD BE SO CUTE.
3. luna lovegood(harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and ponyboy curtis (the outsiders by s.e. hinton)
i feel like luna would either want to be in a relationship with someone exactly like her- eccentric, brave, and a complete angel- or someone who’s a polar opposite of her- someone who doesn’t really stand out from the crowd.
i ship it, because ponyboy’s portrayed as someone who cares a lot about the people he loves, and he and luna are different enough to balance each other out.
4. neville longbottom (harry potter series by j.k. rowling) and jill charron (with malice by eileen cook)
nah. it’s not that they wouldn’t make each other happy or anything, or that they’d be gross as a couple, but them in a relationship is just kind of…blah. also, jill doesn’t care that much for boys, and neville…well…he’s not the most attractive or popular among the ladies, so i really don’t think he would manage to get someone like jill to date him.
i rip this ship.
5. annabeth (percy jackson series by rick riordan) and nico landini (with malice by eileen cook)
no. even if nico somehow managed to attract annabeth, they for sure wouldn’t stay together for long, because annabeth is so smart and talented, and nico is such a selfish jerk. quite honestly, nico’s a dirtbag and doesn’t deserve any girl in the y.a. fiction world.
i rip this ship.
6. cassie sullivan( the fifth wave) and daniel bae (the sun is also a star by nicola yoon)
i put off writing this one because i honestly didn’t know how to feel about it. cassie is super loving and nice and everything, but she doesn’t seem interesting enough to be daniel’s girlfriend. daniel likes poetry and is kind of a hopeless romantic, and i think it would be hard for him and cassie to be together, especially during the fifth wave.
buuut. they would make a pretty attractive couple.
i honestly don’t know. how about you guys decide? tell me in the comments…
truth be told,
i never was yours it’s very hard to ship the characters from the sun is also a star with anyone but each other. they’re a huge part of each other’s lives and have such an impact on each other, that when you take one person away from the other and try to put them with someone completely different, it’s tough to know how you feel about it. daniel is a big part of natasha and natasha is an even bigger part of daniel. without each other, their lives are less interesting and kind of hard to fuse with someone else’s. does that make sense? idk.
7. monica (the fault in our stars by john green) and ren (love and gelato by jenna evans welch)
noooo. monica dumped isaac because he was going blind. like what??? she doesn’t deserve someone committed and sweet as ren. they would nottt be good together. monica was kind of a brat…
i rip this ship!
8. anne shirley (anne of green gables by l.m. montgomery) and ron weasley (harry potter series by j.k. rowling)
awwww, two redheads! that alone- and the fact that they’re both sweet characters- is enough to make me ship them. anne is super nice and smart and enjoys life, and ron was raised by a good family and is super funny and loyal. their families would get along well, and they’d be a positive influence on each other. they’d just be so cute together, and THEIR CHILDREN WOULD BE THE CUTEST LITTLE REDHEADS! (just kidding, i’m not sure if that’s how genetics works. is it? it probably is. whatever.) ron should just never let anne cook for him, because….we know how that went.
i ship it!
9. bronwyn (one of us is lying by karen m. mcmanus) and leo valdez (percy jackson series by rick riordan)
bronwyn is a smart and strong girl, and leo is…a goofball. opposites may attract, but meh, i just can’t see these two together. bronwyn’s very focused and knows what she wants in life, and i feel like a boyfriend who has a dragon named festus is not one of them.
i rip this ship.
10. charlotte holmes (a study in charlotte by brittany cavallaro) and olly (everything, everything by nicola yoon)
olly’s family story is not the happiest, so i feel like charlotte could help him realize that what his dad does is wrong and he shouldn’t be used to that. charlotte is super determined and is one of those people that seems tough, but is sensitive when you get to know them. olly is the same way, and if they were a couple they’d definitely be a good match. they’d probably argue a lot, but in a cute way.
i ship it!
may @ forever and everly
arunima @ dreamer’s dreams
tabi bear @ busy bee
let’s talk! do you agree with my ships? or should they be ripped?
p.s. someone count the number of times i used the word cute in this post. XD
