MY TOP TEN FAVORITE SLOW-BURN ROMANCES

ttt

Top Ten Tuesday is a weekly event created and hosted by The Broke and The Bookish


As you all probably know by now, I am an unapologetic shipper. I ship all the things. In fiction as well as in real life. I just can’t help myself. I enjoy romance when it’s not sappy and ridiculously cheesy.

So when I found out that this week’s TTT was a romance trope freebie, I was ecstatic. I GET TO TALK ABOUT MY FAVORITE KIND OF ROMANCE TROPE!  THE SLOW BURNS!* HECK YES.

Anyway, here’s my list.

 

1. Darcy and Elizabeth

Okay,  I know they’re technically a hate to love trope, but I count Dizzie as a slow burn trope because they took freakin’ FOREVER to realize that the crackling intensity between them was A T T R A C T I O N. Fight me.

Who’s surprised to see these two here? lmao

 

2. Kaz Brekker and Inej Ghafa

So pure, so innocent. Just thinking about these two ruins me. My heart is literally slamming against my chest and crying a million tears. Like, I can’t. I shall be Kanej trash for all eternity.

COD: These two. Every damn day.

 

3. Art and Kat

10+ years of this damned webcomic and these two STILL haven’t gotten together. I mean, why? Why must they be so BLIND. (Yes, yes I know one of them is an anthro cat. I’m weird. Leave me alone)

okay, so they’re webcomic characters. That still counts.

 

4. Agnieszka and The Dragon

The relationship between willful, bumbly Agnieszka and grumpy, snarky Sarkhan is something I will always cherish because omg these two are so cute and I can’t.

There is zero fanart for this ship and am I MAD.

 

5. Veronica and Logan

Yes. ANOTHER HATE TO LOVE SHIP. I DON’T CARE. THE SLOW BURN AND INTENSE FEELS RUINED ME. LoVe FOREVER. AHAHAHAHAH.

Not even a little bit a bookish ship, but my Lord, ALL MY WORDLY POSSESSIONS for more of these two.

 

6. Katniss and Peeta

I don’t think I’ll ever stop shipping Everlark. My love for these two burns brighter than a thousand suns.

7. Rapunzel and Flynn

If you expect me to explain myself here, then there’s something wrong with YOU.

STOP USING THE TOILET PAPER TO WIPE AWAY YOUR FEELINGS!

 

9. Don and Sloan

DO YOU KNOW HOW LONG I WAITED FOR THESE TWO TO GET TOGETHER?
NO. YOU DON’T.

10. Jesper and Wylan

Sweet baby Jesus did these two take forever to get together. BUT AT LEAST THEY GOT A FULLY CANON ENDING WHICH IS MORE THAN I CAN SAY FOR MY OTP OF OTPS BUT LIKE I’M SO HAPPY FOR THEM.

WHERE’S MY EPIC FANART, MAN???


And that’s my list done.

looks at all of you

Now it’s time for you to tell me about YOUR slow burn ships. And/or if you love any of these shippies the way I do. Leave me a comment, fellow captains! I’m waiting.

*If it isn’t filled with intense angst and doesn’t give me incredible, destructive feels, it’s not worth shipping

    Oh my gosh, I love like all of these. I love Veronica and Logan. I love how organic it was, but kind of hate how we never really got to see them together for a long period of time before the writers decided to throw a wrench into their relationship. All the Six of Crow couples are fantastic. I can talk forever about each of them. Nothing beats Elizabeth and Darcy, I will love them forever. Great list!

      Oh God, yes. It’s so sad that Logan and Veronica couldn’t be together for long. And then, just when you thought they would get back together, THE SHOW GETS CANCELLED.

      But eeee! We’ve got the same favorite ships. This is so cool!
