Hey, everyone! I’m Marta and I’m very sorry for not posting more frequently these past weeks, but I hope I’m back with inspiration and some posts that you hopefully will enjoy.
Today, we’re going to talk about crossover bookish couples, if you’re not familiar with the term crossover couples – it’s basically a pairing formed by two characters from different universes (different books, movies or video games).
I have some favourite crossover couples from different movies or tv shows due to the amazing fanvideo creators from Youtube, but I rarely see crossover bookish couples, so I thought I’d try to come up with a few of mine.
Let’s see what bookish characters I’d love to see together! Maybe you ship some of those as well and we can fangirl together.
Warning : you might get hungry and there are also lots of kissing pics, don’t say you haven’t been warned.
1. Circe & Atalanta (Cirlanta)
Two of the most badasses women in Greek mythology. I ship it. I mean, they will probably bond over how awful men are, it’s inevitable. I love how Atalanta is a hero and Circe is a goddess that keeps in touch with her human side and they both struggle very much with patriarchy and their family’s expectations. They have lots in common, which is great for a relationship, right? When Atalanta’s father tells her that she has to marry someone, she organizes races against her suitors and she puts all of them to shame. Circe literary transforms men into pigs. They are both very #girlpower, alright? OTP goals.
2. Eelyn & Aragorn (Aralyn)
Vikings & Middle Earth? Sign me up for this crossover. I really think Eelyn would do so well in the fellowship considering what a badass fighter she is. Also, Lord of The Rings is in a desperate need of more girls and Eelyn would be an amazing addition. I think these two would be a very powerful couple, I see them as kind of angsty and not wanting to admit they like each other, but everything becoming very obvious whenever either of them is in danger and the other one is super concerned.
3. Damen & Patroclus (Dameclus)
I love Laurent and Achilles (at least Miller’s version), but I have to admit that they are both kind of problematic. On the other hand, Damen and Patroclus are both rays of sunlight, so why not put them together, right? I can imagine Damen being supportive of Patroclus and trying to make him more confident, but also making him blush constantly in public because Damen is an embarrassing boyfriend. And there would be lots of training involved and surprise kisses.
4. Evelyn & Nina (Nilyn)
These two would be such a power couple! I’m thinking that maybe Nina is an actress as well, I can totally see it since she’s so charming. They are both very confident, they are rooting for each other to have success in their careers, they always eat breakfast in bed together, which usually involves only sweets. Everyone is secretly terrified of them and their confidence. Bisexual icons together. I’m living for this ship, make it happen.
5. Hermione & Peeta (Hereeta)
Peeta baking for Hermione while she’s researching stuff, Peeta treating Hermione like the queen she is, Hermione listening to Peeta’s plans and them working together as a team. Everyone underestimating Peeta left and right, but Hermione knowing his full potential. Peeta giving Hermione the credit she deserves for being so brilliant. I’m soft for this ship.
Do you ship any of the couples I chose?
