Top Ten Fictional Couples

“Every story, tale or memoir, every saga or romance, whether true or fabricated, whether planned or happenstance, whether sweeping through the ages casting centuries aside or a hurried brief recital, just a thirty-minute ride. Whether bright or melancholy, rough and ready, finely spun. Whether with a thousand players, or a lonely cast of one. Every story, new or ancient, bagatelle or work of art – all are tales of human failing, all are tales of love at heart.”*

I love all forms of love stories, wether it is in book form or on the stage or screen. My top ten (as hosted by The Broke and the Bookish) favourite fictional couples are:

1. Claire Beauchamp Randall Fraser & James “Jamie” MacKenzie Fraser Outlander, book series

2. Elizabeth Bennett & Mr Darcy Pride and Prejudice, book/movie

3. Scarlett O’Hara & Rhett Butler Gone With the Wind/Scarlett, books

4. Aida & Radames Aida, musical

5. Johnny Castle & Frances “Baby” Houseman Dirty Dancing, movie

6. Veronica Mars & Logan Echolls Veronica Mars, tv series

7. Luke Danes & Lorelei Gilmore Gilmore Girls, tv series

8. Jack Dawson & Rose DeWitt Bukater Titanic, movie

9. Kathleen Kelly & Joe Fox You’ve Got Mail, movie

10. Romeo Montague & Juliet Capulet Romeo and Juliet, book/play/movie
