Everybody's doin' it

Name your 10 absolutely favorite couples (het/slash/canon/fanon) and ask people to see what trends they notice about your couples. Try to pick different fandoms.

This doesn't mean sexual couples because (disdainful) I don't Do That any more. It means binary relationships. And nobody has to try and find a pattern here, because I doubt there is one.

In no particular order:

1. Gou Jian/ Ya Yu (Woxin Changdan)
-- Gou Jian and everybody, in fact, because he's *so* much all things to all men-- or different things to each individual. Gou Jian/ Ku Cheng, Gou Jian/ Wen Zhong, Gou Jian/ Fan Li, Gou Jian/ Ye Yong, Gou Jian/ Wu Zi Xu. But Ya Yu is the most satisfactory and unpin-down-able relationship.

2. Goujou /Hakkai (Saiyuuki)
-- returning to my roots here, the satisfaction of that tacit friendship whose unspoken boundaries take in most of the known world

3. Haruka/ Michiru (Sailor Moon)
-- still the acme of how f/f should be done

4. Elizabeth/ Darcy (Pride and Prejudice)
-- just because one would rather like to be married to either of them

5. Fan Li/ Wen Zhong (Woxin Changdan)
-- old marrieds. I just wish I knew what they were *saying* whn they snipe at each other.

6. Aoarashi/ Ritsu (100 Demons)
-- people who get on each other's nerves but can't do without each other

7. Koh/ Kubota (Wild Adapter)
-- always wondered what that's all about. But neither is the kind to talk and tell you

8. Marlowe/ Shakespeare (RPS)
-- if someone would just do it *right*

9. Hakkai/ Hakuryuu (Saiyuuki)
-- Hakuryuu's devotion is the purest in the series. Even Gokuu's devotion to Sanzou has a reason, but Hakuryuu's just is.

10. (shameless self-indulgence) Goukou/ Hisui
-- I have a thing for managing types, especially when they manage with grace

What we need is a meme for the Solitaries, people one wants to see in a relationship with someone but for whatever reason doesn't, short of fanfic. My own shortlist:

1. Vetinari (Discowrld)
2. Keiki (10 Kingdoms)
3. Katse (Ai no Kusabi)
4. Kinu (100 Demons)
5. Goujun (Gaiden)
6. Ageha (Basara)

    You know, I don't think I've ever seen a copy of Yoshitoshi's Sotoba no Komachi for sale and I probably wouldn't have bought it in my giddy thirties…

    How very 1993 it's being just now. Grey, washy, cool but humid, with cicadas. Fine by me: time travel removes me from the frets of the present.…
