Fictional Couples

This week my husband and I will be celebrating our twelfth wedding anniversary, so to celebrate on the blog, I thought I'd share some of my favorite fictional couples.
  • Buttercup and Westley from The Princess Bride by William Goldman.

And a lovely quote from the book: “But just as he knew the sun was obliged to rise each morning in the east, no matter how much a western arisal might have pleased it, so he knew that Buttercup was obliged to spend her love on him. Gold was inviting, and so was royalty, but they could not match the fever in his heart, and sooner or later she would have to catch it. She had less choice than the sun.” 

The book has some great lines. Many made it into the movie, but not all.
  • Fawn and Dag from The Sharing Knife series by Lois McMaster Bujold.
  • Buffy and Angel from the TV series Buffy the Vampire Slayer
  • Willow and Tara, also from Buffy
  • Castle and Beckett on the TV series Castle
  • Joan Wilder and Jack T. Colton from the movie Romancing the Stone
  • Dr. Prentice and Christina Drayton in the movie Guess Who's Coming to Dinner
  • Princess Leia and Han Solo in Star Wars
Who are your favorite fictional couples?
