Five Favorite Couples

You know what I love? Being tagged. You know what's really hard? Picking favorites. So you could say this is a bittersweet moment because I'm here to narrow down my many ships to a list of favorites. Thanks ever so much to the wonderful Evangeline, from An Odd Blog.

Quick little thing here, there's a major Legends of Tomorrow spoiler at the bottom. So if you want no spoilers then only read to four... or just don't read the post to be safe. Just sayin'.

Pick one couple from each category
Tagging is optional

1.) Period Drama Couple
2.) Sci-Fi/Fantasy Couple
3.) Superhero Couple
4.) Preferred Couple (from a love triangle)
5.) Couple Ended Too Soon

1. Danielle and Henry

Okay maybe this doesn't exactly count, because it's more of a historical fiction. BUT I don't care because Ever After is a beautiful movie and they are the most wonderful couple. I've loved this movie from the first time I watched it, and it will always be my favorite Cinderella story. Always.

2. The Doctor and Rose

Yes I said The Doctor, not particularly Nine or Ten because they were both adorable together and technically they're the same person. But they were the absolute cutest together and the way things ended was NOT OKAY but like I guess 10.1 was okay but it wasn't the same ya know?

3. Roy and Thea
Roy & Thea:

I WILL GO DOWN WITH THIS SHIP. Seriously, they are the cutest couple. The way they came together, and trusted each other, and just uggg whyyy. Seriously though they're just the best, and I wish their ship didn't sink.

4. Raoul and Christine

I don't really watch/read a lot of stuff with love triangles. Mostly I don't like them, but in this case I love it. I'm a huge Phantom of the Opera fan, particularly Hadley and Sierra. And they're my preferred pairing. Like, yes I know lots of people wanted Christine to end up with Erik but honestly I think she's best off with Raoul.

5. Captain Cold and Black Canary

I thought they'd be cute together. Then the show started hinting. They kissed THEN BLEW HIM UP. THEY BLEW UP MY BLOODY SHIP.

I cannot believe they'd tease me like then, and then BLOW HIM UP. Not cool. Like seriously that was the shortest lived ship I've even experienced. It needed to be longer. How could they end it so quickly? How could they!?

I too shall include some honorable mentions because I have a lot of ships.

Honorable mentions:

Olicity - because they're meant to be okay
Percabeth - #relationshipgoalz
Caleo - Legit the best couple
Thress - Seriously so cute

I would tag people but I have like, one blogging friend and she's the one who tagged me.

Stay classy my friends.

I'm at such a loss as to what I should post, you have no idea. So I'm going to do a life update. Because I have a lot of tiny noteworthy things that have happened in my life that I would like to document.

My saddle rack is finally built, after having owned and awkwardly stored my saddle for months. While Tiana and Mamma went to California, my dad and I finally found the time to build it. The best part, it was free! We used scrap wood from previous deck building, and screws that my dad had bought... at a time. The best part of building it (besides the math, I KNOW CALL ME CRAZY IT'S FUN THOUGH) was burning it. I decided to go for a rustic look because of reasons. I'm very happy with how it turned out.

I forgot if I ever mentioned this on my blog, my Tiana and I are working with Rogue ZoHu to make an LCC film. And Monday was my second choreography day and I'M IN LOVE. Swordfighting is basically the best thing in the world. I can't say much, but Annie did reveal a video so I can say that grappling with Max was so much fun! Oh gosh. I was a little nervous at first but it was actually so much fun you have no idea. Max also showed me his Rapiers, which are amazing. It was great, because after lunch he just handed me a Rapier, and without a word walked onto the grass so we could fight. And let me say, he's a really good fighter. It was an honor to battle him.

Monday led to many injuries, which I will cherish forever. Nothing long lasting, but I did bruise my shoulder, and twist my ankle. My ankle seems to be healing, but I keep walking on it weird and making it hurt. I'm so uncoordinated I can't walk properly, and am probably making it take longer to heal. I also, at some point in time, hurt my shoulder. Whatever I did, it hurts when I move it certain ways. So that's annoying. Honestly I could care less about the pain. I'm more worried about if I did something serious. Which I doubt. But I'm a pro at overthinking so...

I've become obsessed with the band Skillet (thanks Micah). I heard one of their songs a few months ago and was like, "hmm not bad" and then Micah shared another on Facebook and I was like "okay this is really good" and then I listened to the entirety of their latest album Unleashed and basically I can't stop listening to their music. My favorites thus far are Feel Invincible, Stars, I Want to Live, Lions, Watching for Comets, and The Resistance. It's kinda weird, because I generally don't like an entire album. I usually like a few select songs from an artist but so far I like all of Skillet's songs. They're up there with Imagine Dragons, which anybody who knows me, knows they are my jam.

I saw Star Trek: Beyond today! Despite various problems I have with the film, it's won my heart because Michael Giacchino is a master of music, Bones is perfection, Kirk was of course awesome, feels about Ambassador Spock's death because Leonard Nimoy died so sadness. And just EVERYBODY. Ug not to mention Chekov. Every scene with him was sad because I know he'll never be back. I lost it when the credits started and it said "For Anton." It's so sad.

Lastly, I've finally finished season two of The Flash. MY FANGIRL HEART. Let's take a moment to appreciate two things: Fourway crossover is happening because Stephen Amell posted a photo so I'M INCREDIBLY HAPPY (Flarrow, Legends of Flarrow, and Super Flash already broke me) and secondly FLASHPOINT. OH GOSH. Daniel gave me the Flashpoint comic, and I'm almost finished and awww... feels. Like. My fangirl heart can't take this. BRUCE NO. I CAN'T TAKE THIS. BARRY DON'T FORGET. STOP KILLING EVERYBODY I CARE ABOUT. DIANA AND AUTHOR STOP FIGHTING. UG.

This has been a life update by me.

Stay classy my friends.
