My Favorite Fantasy Couples // A Shout-Out List


It’s Valentine’s time! (If a little late, but shh that doesn’t matter) And, of course, now is the prefect time to gush over share my favorite fictional couples. So, fitting in with the theme of February is Fantasy Month, I have a list of no less than 24 of my favorite fantasy couples.

{WARNING: There are moderate to severe spoilers ahead, so proceed with caution. Or if you’re into that kind of thing, read with reckless abandon. Which ever you prefer.}


Cinder + Kai

From the first chapter, I knew that this was going to be one of my favorite couples ever. And I was not wrong! These two are so ADORABLE together!! I’ve found that couples who can banter wittily back and forth with each other are my absolute favorite kinds of couples. Cinder and Kai nail that aspect, to be sure. XD


Scarlet + Wolf

This is one of those mushy-gushy couples that kinda make you want to throw up a little, but, in a good way, you know? Wolf is just such an over-protective little wolf pup and Scarlet pretends she hates it when she actually doesn’t and they’re basically SO CUTE.


Cress+ Thorne

Ah, yes, my favorite couple in the Lunar Chronicles. Thorne is the epitome of the bad boy, space adventurer, aka, Han Solo. Cress is a spunky, not-quite-as-fragile-as-you’d-think, yet she still manages to be totally adorkable and lovable. It takes a bit longer for Throne to see that Cress is what he needs in life because, obviously. But they’re definitely high on the list of best fictional couples.


Winter + Jacin

Winter is such a tortured little thing, and I can’t imagine a better person for her than Jacin Clay. He’s such a rock-solid, no emotion, kind of guy (for actual, legitimate safety reasons), and Winter is…Winter. Impulsive, cheeky, and adorable. They’re like polar opposites, but clearly opposites attract in this instance.


Ella + Char

My first ever ship. I read this when I was like 9 or 10 and I remember thinking ‘Will Char just propose to her already?’ Of course, this arrangement gets mess up, leaving me an angry heap. Things work out though, and they’re eventually together, after much frustration and secret-keeping. And even though I love the movie adaption, I still think the romance is better told in the book. They left out a lot of little touches that just make it so much more cute, in my opinion.


Alice + Jonathan

We don’t really get to see much interaction between these two, but I still think they’re adorable together for the, like, 10 pages we see them together. *nods*

Anna/Hannah + Lockwood

Oh, how do I begin to explain? I suppose I’ll just have to sum up. Lockwood is the most awesome pilot to ever grace the pages (well, except for maybe Carswell Thorne…maybe…) He pretty much pretends to have no emotions, and then along comes Anna, and…well, things change obviously. She’s not enticed with his fake charm, and instead actually gets him to open up. And the result is SO CUTE.


Liddi+ Tiav

Lesser known book that I just read, but I LOVED. Not just for the great story, but obviously for Liddi and Tiav’s amazing relationship. And trust me, it’s amazing when a girl can’t even say two words to this guy and they still manage to be the cutest couple. Communication is clearly not a problem here!


Wilhelmina + Engelbert

We see more of Mina and Etzel’s relationship in the second book, where they’re running a successful coffeehouse together. At first, I wasn’t sure how I liked them together. But the more I read and saw how much Etzel respected Mina (and surprisingly too, because it’s in older times and generally women don’t get respected like that), I started shipping them. Hopefully it’s a relationship to last. I can’t say what Mr. Lawhead will do with them. *nervousness*


Rose Red + Lionheart

This is the classic, guy-doesn’t-know-if-he-should-go-with-girl-but-girl-is-lonely-and desperately-loves-guy-but-guy-also-loves-girl-but-is-so-flighty-and-indecisive-that-he-ends-up-running-away-and-leaving-her-to-her-lonely-self. Um…okay, so maybe that’s not classic, but such is the case. Lionheart does make amends, though, and lucky for him. I might’ve had to shake him half to death and demand he return to Rose Red if he hadn’t. XD


Imraldera + Eanrin

SNARKY COUPLE. I loves them. Sarcasm literally oozes from Eanrin, while Imraldera tries to beat any kind of sense into him (which doesn’t work, by the way). Also, Eanrin is a cat half the time, which could explain his I-couldn’t-care-less attitudes. They’re totally amazing together, in short.


Ginger + Halcyon

So, technically, Hal is half-cat, which…I suppose makes things a bit strange, BUT THEY’RE JUST SO PERFECT TOGETHER. They’re both sarcastic, which is a total win in my eyes, and they both are so headstrong, they basically try to out headstrong themselves, which doesn’t usually end well for either participant, but it’s okay because they care too much for each other. They’re perfect. Now, if only there was someone for Azrael…


Catherine + Jest

They both share an affinity for food, which is definitely taking great strides and leaps to a great relationship, in my opinion. Catherine is perhaps a bit whiny and needy, but Jest is amazing, so it’s okay. And perhaps if they had had the time to actually get to KNOW EACH OTHER, Cath could’ve grown a back-bone. BUT NOPE. THAT’S NOT WHAT HAPPENED. AT ALL.


Inej + Kaz

This is one of those romances that I wish would’ve been just a touch more fleshed out. I mean, we’ve come to the hand-holding stage by the end of the duology. What. KAZ YOU’RE SUPPOSED TO PROFESS YOUR LOVE FOR HER WHAT ARE YOU DOING. Ahem, anywho…They’re still so cute together. I’m not complaining. Much.

Nina + Matthias

This relationship is so…how shall I put it? SAD. No, no, something nicer, maybe…DEVASTATING. All kidding aside, they’re pretty adorable. ❤ Except for that thing that happened. The thing that kinda ruined everything and crushed my heart. But anyway, it’s totally true love if he gets you a box of chocolate cookies to help you get through withdrawals and he knows just the ones you like. Just saying.


Drusilla + Frederick

At first, I really thought Frederick was a jerk, but I soon found that he was just a poor misguided soul that needed someone like Drusilla to steer him right. And now they’re an adorable couple! Yay! 😀

Rosalind + Marius

The first time I read this story, I didn’t know how I liked their relationship. BUT NOW IT’S MY FAVORITE. *aggressively ships* Couples who constantly try to out wit each other are my favorite.

Evelyn + Henry

This is just such a sweet, gentle romance. I immediately loved Henry from the start and my love only grew the longer I read. And when he met Evelyn for the first time? *sighs happily*

Alis + Auguste

Auguste was by far my favorite character in this story, so it would make sense that I was rooting him and Alis the entire time. Even if they couldn’t see it right from the start, they were clearly meant for each other. 🙂

Elsa + Karl

I only got a very small taste of what their relationship could be. But I definitely liked what I saw! They each have such big dreams and they’re both so passionate, and I just really need to read The Battle of Castle Nebula now…


Cecilia + Pepin

YES. THIS COUPLE. GAH, I LOVE IT SO MUCH. *smiles dreamily* So what if maybe halfway into the story I suddenly felt the urge to slap Pepin really hard? THEY’RE SO CUTE TOGETHER SO IT DOESN’T MATTER…Right?

Bet + Corwin

I just really appreciate this couple. A lot. Bet is so plucky and energetic, and Corwin is…well, he’s more laid-back, cautious. And given the circumstances, I’m very glad he’s cautious and overprotective of Bet. They’re wonderful together. ❤

Karyna + Barend

Karyna is the sweetest thing in the world. And Barend is…not. BUT IT DOESN’T MATTER. Barend is literally a half-bear, but Karyna loves him anyway and I just really love that they love each other, you know?

Bellenya + Ritter

I did NOT see this coming, honestly. It was hinted at a little by a few flashbacks from childhood, but I was not expecting it. They’re super adorable together though. Ritter is the best of ever and I just love him and Bellenya together.

Phew, that’s my parade of couples! It’s probably a jargled mess of nonsensical raving, but oh well. XD Do you have any favorite fictional couples? And how was your Valentines day? Let me know down below!

P.S. Question: how many times did I use the words together, adorable, and love? Answer: too many. XDuntil-next-time-1

  1. WHAT A FUN LIST!!!!

    Someone asked me recently about my favorite fantasy couples and I drew a complete blank. I was like, “Um… I know that there is a romance aspect in most of the fantasy books I’ve read…. but, yeah… I’ve got nothin.” So thank you for reminding me of a few of them! And reminding me that a ton of these are on my TBR pile… And I REALLY need to read the Lunar Chronicles. Everyone I know and their cats are talking about them and I’m starting to feel left out.

    d’awwwww, Karyna/Barend and Ritter/Bellenya both made the list?!?!?!!? I’m honored. 🙂 They were fun to write.

    Battle of Castle Nebula is REALLY good. But be warned… it’s a prequel… so there is no Elsa/Karl plot furtherment (oh, come on, how is that not a word?)

    Let’s see… some of mine in addition to the ones you mentioned would be: Arwen/Aragorn. Eowyn/Faramir. Cimorene/Mendenbar (though it continues to annoy me no end that they finally get together and are happy for like TWO SECONDS and then they get like 15 years stolen from them… AAAGGGGGHHHHH NOT FAIR!) Eugenides/Attolia. Ben/Willow.

  3. I’m screaming, I haven’t been able to talk to anyone about the Lunar Chronicles when I finished them a couple months ago and AHHH. Cress & Thorne are PERFECTION, they are one of my all time favorite book couples. Scarlet and Wolf weren’t my favorites, i totally ageee with what you were saying about the mushiness ahaha. Thanks for making this list, it brought back all the memories of me reading the series (I got pretty hooked, I read Winter in one day haha)
