Long and Short Reviews has a set of prompts for their Weekly Wednesday Blogging Challenge for 2020. If you'd like to join me, the prompts are here and you can check in on their home page every Wednesday to find a post with links to people's responses. (If you do participate, add your own links so the rest of us can come and read them!)
This week's prompt is "best book/movie/TV couples", which I'm taking to mean one from each medium. (I'm pretty sure it doesn't have to be read that way, but this reading keeps my answer nicely contained.)
Best Book Couple:
The one that first comes to mind is Captain Thomas Boniface and Kade Carrion from Martha Wells' debut fantasy novel The Element of Fire. To be fair, this is a fantasy novel with a romance subplot, but it's very well done and there are some very nice moments as it develops.
Best Movie Couple:
Okay, don't hate me for this, but among the relatively recent movies the one that really stands out to me is Iron Man and Captain America. Talk about opposites attracting! Yes, I know we never get a revealing kiss (let alone a Happily Ever After), but man there's a lot of unspoken emotion there.
...But all right, if we have to one where the romance is canon, then I'm going to go with my favorite Couple Who Never Got Their Chance: Ellen Ripley and Dwayne Hicks from the second Aliens movie.
Best Television Couple:
Gomez and Morticia Addams, independently sentient hands down. They're creepy, they're magical, they're romantic, they're... well, Life Goals for me, to be honest.
What are yours?
