? Rain Drops on Roses and Whiskers on Kittens… Confirmed Canon Stories and OTPs Smitten… the Happiness that a New Fandom Brings… these are a few of our Favourite Things! ? … Is that not how the song goes? Well it should be, because our favourite things are so much more interesting than kettles & wild geese. We are into heroes & villains, star-crossed lovers & tales of bromance, epic quests & stories of success… and boy bands… of course boy bands. Want to hear more?
Happy Valentines Day Fanboys & Fangirls! It’s the day of heart-eyed emojis and Bachelor-style roses…to put it in fandom terms. And what better way to celebrate than to talk OTPs! What’s an OTP? you ask. The definition in our Fangirl Glossary is:
OTP (noun) “One True Pairing” The pairing you believe in above all others, regardless of canon or the opinion of the masses. You would be be willing to metaphorically “go down with this ship.”
Basically it’s the people that give us all of the feels. Some OTPs are forever, while some are for right now… if you compare the couples we picked below to the OTP Roundup we did on Valentine’s Day 2015 only half are repeats (6 for KG, 5 for Justine, and 6 for me). Which is why we are constantly updating our favourite things lists!
Last time I displayed our favourite things (Our Favourite Literary Characters to be exact) in a Venn diagram. Could I still do that for OTPs? The answer is yes & no… Spoiler Alert: our OTPs had very little overlap. I had to modify into a template that still looked good for this new set of favs. One that would support the fact that Justine is a romantic, obsessed with forbidden love. That KG loves quirky couples, with light-hearted romances. And that I am a sucker for when two awesome people become even more awesome together, kicking ass & taking names.
So here they are: Our Favourite OTPs!
But we can’t forget our favourite OTP of all! The My Fangirl Life Team & All of Our Readers!
Happy Valentine’s Day!
Love & Luck,
