Castle: Richard Castle/Kate Beckett (They might take their time for various reasons, but the chemistry was obvious even before the Season Four finale made it official (Although I will confess that, ever since reading stories such as "", I've had a greater appreciation for stories featuring this pair that also explore Kate as a mother, either just assuming that role for Alexis or having a child before meeting Castle; it's really rather cute if handled properly))Charmed: Piper/Leo (After all they've been through, I think it's pretty much a guarantee that they're meant for each other, wouldn't you say?
)Phoebe/Cole (It reminds me a lot of the Buffy/Angel romance; I'm just a sucker for that kind of 'love makes the bad guy defect' thing, I suppose.
RIGHT to me)Marvel Comics: Avengers (Movie): No slash, but Bruce Banner/Natasha Romanov could have potential if handled properly (I was neutral on Clint/Natasha even before we learned that he was married; I got why people like it, but I personally thought that both sides were too emotionally repressed to feel inclined to explore it)Wanda Maximoff/Vision (As with Bruce and Natasha, they had some interesting moments in 'Age of Ultron' that I'd like to see developed further, even before their further chemistry in 'Civil War'; the fact that they had to fight during the resulting conflict just made it all the more tragic)Iron Man: Tony Stark/Pepper Potts (They had some great chemistry in the film, and I'm sticking to it regardless of Tony's comments in 'Civil War')Spider-Man: Peter Parker/Mary Jane is an obvious positive- I can never read anything with Gwen as a character without anticipating her death- but I've read stories pairing Peter off with a variety of other female heroes in the Marvel Universe, such as She-Hulk, Rogue, or Carol Danvers, which were also fairly effective so long as it's not taken too far Thor: Thor/Jane Foster (The movie really made it work; what can I say? They've been together in pretty much every X-Man continuity in existence; it may be a bit cliche, but sometimes cliches become such because they fundamentally similar; both of them can never be totally normal because they can't turn off their powers and require 'artificial' means- likes Rogue's gloves and Scott's glasses- to keep them under control)Matrix: Neo/Trinity (Like some other couples, these guys need only one explanation for why they make a good pair; they together, and that's the end of the matter as far as I'm concerned)Merlin: Merlin/Morgana (Things between them took a downturn in the later series, but that just makes it more tragic; they had great POTENTIAL as a couple, but it could never happen because Morgana was driven to take another path while Merlin was left in the unenviable position of having to oppose her even as a part of him wished for a sign that she's still the person he knew)Pirates of the Caribbean: Philip Swift/Syrena (There's something kind of sweet about their relationship, really; it's a shame that the only good story I've read with them as a couple is "")I like Will/Elizabeth, but I'm not sure I'd read a story exclusively about them; Jack's the more interesting character, after all Pokemon: (Another case where I feel the importance of childishness is underestimated) Ash/Misty (No matter how many other girls Ash travels with, only Misty was there for him when he was finding his way and really somebody that he could rely on to help him and give him advice while he was trying to find his way in his new world.
Besides, not only was Misty the only travelling companion who left Ash through necessity rather than choice- she had to 'save' the Cerulean Gym where everyone else just decided to travel somewhere other than where Ash was going- but Ash still carries around a memento of Misty in the form of her special lure even after she's been away from him for so long, when the only memento we've seen of his other female companions is that half-ribbon he won with May after they drew in a contest which he would also be interested in keeping for 'professional' reasons; suggestive about his feelings for Misty in comparision to the others, no?
)Lost Girl: No DEFINITE favourites, but I prefer Bo/Dyson to Bo/Lauren and Bo/Tamsin, considering that Tamsin's goals were ambiguous at best when she was introduced (Dyson's motives were questionable at times but we never doubted that he wanted Bo safe) and Lauren failed to tell anyone about Nadia until someone else brought the issue up where Dyson has at least always been honest about whatever issues he might have about entering into a relationship with someone once he was aware that they were issues (Him not mentioning his deal with the Norn to Ciara doesn't count because he had no reason to believe that the deal was an issue until he learned about the fact that it took his love from him completely, and his initial distance from Bo can be attributed to the mystery about her own knowledge of her background rather than a flaw on his part exclusively)LXG: Sawyer/Mina (The most Extraordinary member of the team, paired up with the 'least'?
Add in the obvious on-screen chemistry they had in the movie- particularly in that deleted scene on the conning tower where Mina almost seemed to be encouraging Sawyer not to give up his attempts at flirting with her-, and it just seems...
Of course, it doesn't work if Cole turns Phoebe evil, but hey; details, details, right?
)Danny Phantom: Danny/Sam (Admittedly, my experience of this show in general is kind of limited, but what I've read and seen is definitely... Maybe it's the names reminding me of my 'Stargate' favourite pairing- Samantha Carter and Daniel Jackson-, maybe Agent-G's cast having a relationship with Peter Parker/Spider-Man- gave me a fondness for goths getting the guy, maybe I think their pre-existing connection translated well into a closer bond...
In many ways, it's kind of cute; the member of the Bat-family with the most life OUTSIDE crime-fighting, helping to give the one whose ENTIRE life is the Bat-costume a reason to live that DOESN'T involve just beating up the bad guys all the time)Batman (Bruce Wayne)/Catwoman (Selina Kyle) ( made it great again, but I prefer AUs where they met earlier or stories exploring them in costume; it's great that they got a happy ending in DKR, but I just don't feel that interested in seeing how they got to the café where Alfred saw Bruce at the conclusion in favour of seeing them come together as the Dark Knight and Gotham's ultimate thief)Justice League (Animated Series): Batman/Wonder Woman (In many ways, I just think it's too predictable to pair Wonder Woman up with Superman.Besides, that fight scene in the bar got me thinking; why, after knocking out and/or killing everyone else in the bar- including Jayne, whom she also knew-, as well as later attacking Simon " for a story that provides more information about this theory))Friends: Ross/Rachel (Eh, it's destiny; sometimes, predictable is good)Chandler/Monica (Pretty much the same as above)Chandler/Rachel (So long as Ross doesn't act like a jerk in it, and Chandler isn't cheating on Monica, it could have potential...)Grimm: No major favourites, but I liked Nick/Juliette before she went insane (I just don't get why the show's attracted so much slash fanfic; I can't recall a SINGLE moment that could be interpreted as Nick being anything more than good friends with Monroe and a tentative ally of Renard)Harry Potter: Harry/Ginny (In the immortal words of Andrew Lloyd Webber, 'My first love was my true love, and it should have been my last'.Sometimes, it's good to see stories where that phrase manages to come to pass, as Ginny's childish infatuation grows into genuine romance. (And to anyone who thinks that this pairing points to Harry having a Oedipus complex, he never even knew what his mother LOOKED like until he was eleven; how can he have a complex when he only learned what she even looked like at that point in his life?))Artemis Fowl: Artemis Fowl/Holly Short (So long as the writer acknowledges the difficulties that the two of them would have making it work, it has potential; I may like the pairing, but you have to be realistic, given the double-age-difference- Holly being (Apparently) younger physically while Artemis is younger - and the fact that Artemis is NOT the most emotionally aware of people)Battlestar Galactica (2003): Karl 'Helo' Agathon/Sharon 'Athena' Valerii (She defied her programming, purpose and species for him, while he went against the beliefs of practically every one of his friends and allies to love her; what is NOT cool about that?)William Adama/Laura Roslin (Never thought I'd say this about a couple who have to be in their at the youngest, but...
