Favorite Fantasy Couples

Posted by on February 18, 2015

Well, the reds and pinks have faded from the stores only to be replaced with pastel colors of spring. But we have one more favorite couples post before we can finish out this series.

We’ve had our Favorite Almost Couples, Sci-Fi, On Screen, and now Fantasy. I was going to divide this post in two to feature young adult couples separately, but it’s been awhile since I’ve read Young Adult. Besides, I’m sure many of you have heard enough on Ron and Hermonie. Ha!

So without further ado:

My favorite couples in fantasy.

The Chronicler and Lady Leta

He’s a cripple with a dangerous secret who spends most of his time in the shadows of the library. She’s betrothed to Earl Alistair, the heir to his uncle and possible future king of the North. She struggles between doing what is the practical, duty-driven role she is supposed to assume and her desires. You know, impractical stuff like learning to read and thinking for herself. Which is where The Chronicler comes in. A Beautiful story filled with love, sacrifice, adventure, and the fantastic.

Kiana and Skaric

She’s a goddess reincarnated and can’t ever leave her tower for her own safety. That is until the Wolves, who seek her death, blast it apart. In her escape, she heals one of them. Skaric. Now a disgrace to his own people and better off dead, he is on the run with Kiana, who seeks an end to the war between her people and her enemies. Such a sweet love story of redemption and forgiveness.

Siri and Susebron

A second-born princess, Siri does not have to worry about court etiquette, nor the marriage-alliance between her nation and their enemies. That’s her older sister’s duty. But when her father decides to send her instead, Siri must learn quickly about politics, etiquette, and who to trust. She does her best to fulfil her role as bride to the foreboding god-king and to maintain peace. The god-king. Susebron. He is powerful and threatening and scary! But he is not what you think. The story is a mix of political intrigue among minor gods and humans, figuring out who is the real villain with characters jumping off the page and a talking sword. What an adventure! But Siri and Susebron–a beautiful love story indeed.

So what say you? Who are your favorite fantasy couples?

    Good couples!
    I liked Ron & Hermione in Harry Potter. (Wasn’t as big a fan of Harry/Ginny – they just seemed out of nowhere.)
    Also, Tohru and Kyo in the manga series Fruits Basket, Jem & Tessa (Infernal Devices), Wynter Moorehawke & Christopher Garren (Moorehawke trilogy).

      I loved that they got together. I just love the supporting cast in Harry Potter. They are awesome. And I love that the sidekick got together with the girl who typically would have gotten together with the main character.

      I haven’t heard of the other books, except Infernal Devices. That one is on my to-read list! Thanks for stopping by!

    Hmm, favorite fantasy couples. I think I must have been confused by the “on screen” post, because my comment there made much more sense here… as Taran/Eilonwy and Cimorene/Mendanbar are both in books that haven’t made it to the big screen (and no, the horrible animated “Black Cauldron” movie does NOT count!)

    I am, of course, rather partial to the relationships in my own series – Oraeyn and Kamarie… and two others I can’t mention here because: spoilers! 🙂

  4. Kessie

    There’s this little book called The Sherwood Ring (nothing to do with Robin Hood), and I shipped the girl and Peaceable Sherwood so HARD. And he’s the bad guy! Sort of. I need to get that book for my library.

    I’m reading this book called Nice Dragons Finish Last, and I’m already starting to ship Julius and the girl–and I’m not even far enough in it to know her name yet.

      Interesting titles! I will have to check them out. By the way, “shipping”??? Princess Bride jumps to mind…”You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.” Ha! Where do you all come up with these slang words?

      Thanks for sharing!

      Internet-speak I understand! J.L. Mbewe, shipping is short for relationship – so to ship a couple is to want them to be in a romantic relationship. Often used in conjunction with OTP – one true pairing – to express the couple that a fan prefers over all other ‘ships’ in a specific movie/tvshow/book. (I only know this because of my involvement in the Asian drama internet community. But it’s very handy speak and expresses well!)

      So I’m curious, Kessie – you shipped them but were they a couple or were you just wishing? I haven’t heard of either book but I’m looking them up now!

    Eowyn and Faramir from LOTR, and Achan and Vrell from Jill Williamson’s Blood of Kings Trilogy. 🙂

I love hearing from you!
