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.
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.
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)
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.
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.
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.
8. Amy and Jonah
They’re gonna frikkkking get together. You know it. I know it.
Everybody knows it but THEM. Geh.
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.
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
