Anastasia Steele and Christian Grey (Fifty Shades of Grey)

I guess this is me admitting that I have read The Fifty Shades of Grey… (I may or may not have seen the movies as well… in theaters…) I think everyone at this point knows that there are so many problems with this relationship. It is a toxic relationship and both parties involved completely suck and are so boring to read about!

But really can you blame me for watching the movies?!

Travis and Abby (Beautiful Disaster)

Another toxic relationship.  These characters brought out the worst in each other and I was hoping that they would realize that fact but no…

Harry Potter and Ginny Weasley (Harry Potter series)

This is going to be controversial but I could not stand Harry and Ginny together! I just do not buy in to it! I have said it before and I will say it again- Harry should have ended up with Luna Lovegood!

Katniss and Peeta (The Hunger Games)

Come on! She did not love Peeta! I was 100% team Gale! She only chooses Peeta because she blames Gale for what happened to Prim! If it wasn’t something she could get over than she should have just been alone and not settled for Peeta!

Rory Gilmore and Dean (Gilmore Girls)

I liked Dean at first but then no… just no! I am for sure #teamjess! I would even pick Logan over Dean! When I rewatch the series I have to skip the episode where Rory and Dean sleep together because it pisses me off so much!

Please do this tag if any couples came to your mind! I would love to see your answers!

  1. #TeamGale!! I’m so glad there’s another person who feels the same way. I didn’t like Peeta at all — Gale is way more interesting (and better looking). I love the shipping of Harry and Luna! I hadn’t thought about it before, but I think I agree. I never liked Harry/Ginny, but also don’t like the idea of Harry/Hermione.

  2. I hated Harry and Ginny in the movies, but I love them in the books, mainly because Ginny’s character is so much better in the books! Harry and Luna is such an interesting match, I never would have thought it. As for Katniss, I think she should have ended up alone, both of them were wrong for her, meaning she didn’t really love any of them! ALSO, DEAN IS THE WORST, #TEAMJESS 4EVER! This was a really fun post!

      1. You’re right, Peeta is the best, but I definitely think Katniss loved him. Maybe not AS strongly as he loved her but he almost idolized her. She loved him pretty fiercely, even sacrificing her own life for his, so I don’t think she was just settling.

  3. LOL your picks! I have to say, I like Harry and Ginny but I have to say I’m intrigued with Harry and Luna. I oculd have been behind that one. (I thought you were going to say Harry and Hermione and I don’t like that pairing. I thought it was awesome that they had a pure true friendship only relationship. We need more of those in fiction between a boy and a girl.)

    Also,Dean so sucked after the first season. Definitely Team Jess here.

  4. Harry and Luna are an…interesting ship. I never would’ve thought of it. I feel like the romance aspect in Harry Potter definitely needed some work, I’m not a huge fan of any of the pairings. They needed more hints/foreshadowing for me.
    Thanks for doing my tag! I was kind of worried that it was dead. 😅

  5. Oh my gosh yes. Peeta was just not right for Katniss and Dean was sooooo very definitely wrong for Rory. *cringe* He was such a cute and pure first boyfriend though, how did he go so wrong? #teamjess! I also think that Harry and Ginny weren’t right. I wouldn’t exactly ship him with Luna though.

  6. Hahaha! I loved this! 😀 I love that you included Gilmore Girls! 😀 Ha oh gosh Dean was so boringggg once they introduced Jess, and I have to admit I’m 100% #teamjess although I hate Logan so much that I would pick Dean over him #sorrynotsorry! I still can’t believe she was sleeping with him in the revival uhhhhhh.

    I completely forgot about Christian and Ana! That was a crappy relationship, and yes I’ve read the books too… even the book in Christian’s pov 😛
    I can get down with Harry and Luna. Ginny was never my favourite character so I wasn’t exactly thrilled when they got together. Great answers! 😀

      1. HA! I couldn’t agree more, Rory made some interesting decisions!
        Oh haha! Well now I don’t feel so alone! I felt like I was the only one who read it! 😛
        You’re welcome! 🙂
