[POLL] Who is your favorite literary couple?


169 thoughts on “[POLL] Who is your favorite literary couple?

  1. Marius and Cosette from Les Miserables, Lizzie Bennet and Mr. Darcy… there are so many couples that aren’t in this list and that absolutely deserve to be!

  2. Erm, I don’t really care for any of the above, to be honest.

    Puck & Sean from The Scorpio Races are my absolute favorite.

  3. I like this poll. If you make another one, or can edit this, you should add Shane and Claire from Morganville Vampires.
    AND Rose and Dimitri from Vampire Academy!

  4. I think it should be Peeta and Katniss because they deserve each other! Go peeta and Katniss. Hunger Games shall rule! 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂 🙂

  5. I cannot believe that Lizzy and Mr. Darcy are not on the list. If you poll half the “Who would you be if your were a literary character” section on Figment profiles, you would find that the name that pops up the most often is Elizabeth Bennet. And why?

    Because she gets Darcy, that’s why.

    They are the most coveted couple…EVER

  6. I can’t believe Will and Tessa aren’t on top…has no one read The Infernal Devices…and Jace and Clary…Magnus and Alec…Isabelle and Simon…Maia and Jordan…where are theyyy. Obviously I love Cassandra Clare’s work…but at least Jace and Clary <3 <3 <3 <3 <3 <3

  7. This is impossible. Can’t decide!

    *just going with Hermione and Ron. I love Harry Potter. (Snape and Lily? I know they didn’t get together…but still, you can’t say that snapes memories in hallows part 2 didn’t make you cry).

  8. Didn’t J.K. Rowling recently say that Ron and Hermione should have never gotten together because Hermione is a lair?

  9. I didn’t even look at the others; as soon as I saw Katniss and Peeta I just clicked it. I only might have hesitated if I’d seen Augustus and Hazel, Lizzie and Darcy, or Ichigo and Rukia.

  10. Definitely Augustus Waters and Hazel Grace Lancaster from The Fault In Our Stars! 😀 They are such a cute couple and their undying love really served as an inspiration not only to me, but also to a lot of people out there.

  11. What about Tiny Cooper and everyone or Namomi and Eli (I know they aren’t that kind of couple, but they are just too perfect). Or Luce and Daniel? Becuase he courted her HOW MANY TIMES EVEN THOUGH SHE KEPT DYING AND DIDN’T KNOW WHO HE WAS AND THEN HE LOVED HER SO MUCH THAT HE FOUND HER EVERY TIME. Or Patch and Nora? Because, just look at how much he gave up for her.

  12. Does no one read James Patterson any more? Or the Iron Fey series? And really, Clary and Jace from the Mortal Instruments aren’t here. I think they suffered enough. Let’s give them their due.

  13. Caine and Diana from the Gone series!!! Has no one read it? If you’re into extreme character development and crazy plots, you should!

  14. I think if anyone’s favourite literary couple are Romeo and Juliet they need to take a long look at their choices

  15. Right now I am tied between Fang and Max or Four and Tris (Technically Tobias and Tris) mainly because I haven’t read any of the other books that the other characters are from.

  16. Okay, seriously, that was way too hard to choose! I am in love with half of those series – there is no way to pick a complete favorite!

  17. I can’t even honestly vote in this poll. There’s an obvious bias for YA lit, not to mention the ridiculous display of heteronormativity. What about any of the couples from any of Malinda Lo’s works (I recommend Ash and Kaisa from “Ash”)? And, if you’re willing to step away from young adult fiction for a bit, perhaps some Austen couples would merit consideration. Or, my personal favorite as a young adult was Jo and Laurie from Little Women.

  18. How many people think that Romeo & Juliet only got any boys because they accidentally got them instead of Tris and Four? …that’s what happened to me…

  19. Oh god, I have to choose between Harry Potter, Hunger Games, Divergent, and Vampire Diaries!!! NO!!!! My potterhead won out this time…

  20. I feel like if you’re picking Romeo and Juliet, there’s something wrong with your life……It’s obviously a marvelous work of literature, but the romance in it is outrageous……..Is that just me?

  21. Am I to assume that all the other couples could never compete with Percy and Annabeth so therefore, to give the other couples a chance, they were left off the list? It would be true!!! Percy and Annabeth are #1. Forever my favorite liters couple!!!!

  22. My favorite couple is… well… a tie between Carter and Alexis from “Bad Girls Don’t Die” by Katie Alender or Kate and Henry from “The Goddess Test” by Aimee Carter.

    • You are brave to take on all that passion! Although Heathcliff does have that smoldering tension thing going for him. I love a couple who start out unequally matched who gradually realize they’re perfect for each other like Margret Hale and John Thornton in North and South.

  23. The obvious answer is Elizabeth/Darcy or Benedict/Beatrice (from Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing).

    I am sorry but, Romeo and Juliet?? WHY?? A three day relation ship (based most likely on lust) between a 13 year old and a 20-something guy which ended in multiple deaths???

    • THANK YOU! I have no idea why anyone would think Romeo and Juliet were a better couple than Beatrice and Benedict. Anyone who’d read the plays, anyway.

  24. I find it hilarious that Ron and Hermione are the number one couple for most people… and, well, for those of you who know what J. K. Rowling has been saying about them recently, you know what I mean. XD

    And for those of you who haven’t, check out this article (minus the spaces). It will make everything clear:

  25. Aragorn and Arwen from Lord of the Rings. Ella and Char from Ella Enchanted. Severus Snape and Lily Potter (not actually a couple, but the one-sided love story is who beautifully tragic I need to include it)from Harry Potter.

  26. Ron and Hermione always and forever. I loved their relationship. At first they hated each other and then fell in love. With some help from Harry.

  27. Why is there only one “classic” on here? And why is there not a write-in option? None of these are particular favorites of mine. Given the choice, I would go with Thursday and Landen from the Thursday Next books by Jasper Fforde. Or, actually, possibly Polly and Mycroft from the same series. They were such a sweet couple.

  28. Whoa, where’s Percy and Annabeth? Hazel and Gus? Leo and Calypso? I mean, those are my OTP’s and NONE of them are on there!

  29. How could they forget Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy? They are classics! Their love is the kind that made them want to be better for each other. It wasn’t quick and lusty like Romeo and Juliet it developed over time and was based on respect for one another. It is just as fictional as the rest of these love stories but I think it is the best.

  30. I am not a huge fan of the Hermione-Ron couple… it just doesn’t make any sense!
    Tris and Four are a perfect couple. <3 <3 <3

  31. I voted Wessa, but Percabeth is forever my OTP! Some other, less common ones are Creel and Luka (Dragon Slippers), Vi and Jag (Possession), Eragon and Aryan (Inheritance Cycle), Nasuada and Murtagh (also IC), Wanda and Ian (The Host), Day and June (Legend), Fade and Deuce (Enclave), and Chase and Ember (Article 5). Also, I will forever think that Charlotte and Henry from TID are so adorable!
