either way, I think this one works best, so long as the accompanying story is also well-written)DC Comics: Batman: Robin (Tim Drake)/Batgirl (Cassandra Cain) (Having read the absolutely FANTASTIC "" by Phoenix83ad, I was INSTANTLY a fan of this pairing even before I reached the end of the story.
In many ways, it's kind of cute; the member of the Bat-family with the most life OUTSIDE crime-fighting, helping to give the one whose ENTIRE life is the Bat-costume a reason to live that DOESN'T involve just beating up the bad guys all the time)Batman (Bruce Wayne)/Catwoman (Selina Kyle) ( made it great again, but I prefer AUs where they met earlier or stories exploring them in costume; it's great that they got a happy ending in DKR, but I just don't feel that interested in seeing how they got to the café where Alfred saw Bruce at the conclusion in favour of seeing them come together as the Dark Knight and Gotham's ultimate thief)Justice League (Animated Series): Batman/Wonder Woman (In many ways, I just think it's too predictable to pair Wonder Woman up with Superman.
Besides, they're total opposites- the Dark Knight, keeping to the shadows, and the Princess, bringing a message to the world- and I've always rather liked the idea of opposites attract...
up to a certain point, of course, as with Jack O'Nell/Samantha Carter, sometimes the differences are just great)Green Lantern/Hawkgirl (Well, it seems appropriate somehow. Talk about a match made in heaven)Smallville: Clark Kent/Lois Lane (What else needs to be said?
I was born in Edinburgh and have lived there for much of my life.
)Animorphs: Rachel/Tobias (Come on, a girl and a boy dating when the guy spends most of his time with wings and feathers? (Besides, after the way Tobias basically abandoned humanity after Rachel's death I think it's pretty clear that she meant a great deal to him; it's really a tragedy that the two never really got a chance to be more than what they were)(Used to like Jake/Cassie, but Cassie lost serious points when she gave the Yeerks the morphing cube because the alternative was to kill a human host; evidently, as far as she's concerned- to paraphrase Rachel in "The Departure"-, the whole world can drop dead just so long as doesn't work; what happens to those Yeerks who keep the morphing power in their hosts rather than morphing themselves?
After that discovery, I then got a bit more interested in Buffy and Angel books- but I mostly favour the crossover novels rather than a book featuring just one or the other-, and from there, having discovered this web site, my writing interest has just snowballed onwards into all kinds of movie, book and TV show genres , although some attract more interest than others; I prefer crossover fanfics where they're all human as otherwise it just seems like the writers were being too lazy to come up with their own characters for a plot- the vampire angle is part and parcel of the whole CONCEPT of that series-, and I've never read any Stephen King because I just can't imagine anything being series is also exceptional.
In my spare time, when not writing, I enjoy reading, walking or cycling, checking out some DVDs, and working on job-related issues (The economy is really difficult right now).
Besides, it adds to the tragedy of the relationship by giving it the 'forbidden love', angle, and in the end, who really cares what they do together; it's their choice, and, so long as they're not hurting anybody and they're happy, does it matter that much?
)Hunger Games: No specific favourites, but I generally think Katniss/Peeta works the best; he might lack her strength, but at least he had the nerve to say how he felt, whereas I just can't believe that she ever saw Gale as anything more than a brother/cousin no matter how she tried (And that's before you consider Gale's more violent approach to revolution)In general, I prefer stories including Katniss as a main character; I found a couple of interesting stories showing her working with other Tributes in the games ('I Am Not a Victim' and its sequel create a very interesting team of Katniss and District One's Glimmer, as an example), but I find it hard to get behind a storyline where she ended up dead.
