Favorite CANON pairing (singular) (22)

1 Name: KatonRyu : 2010-07-08 22:15 ID:6jNUjisG

There is a thread about people's favorite pairings, but I couldn't find one quite like the one I had in mind, so I'll just make one. What is your favorite CANON pairing, and why?

Mine is Kouta/Lucy from Elfen Lied. Lucy killed Kouta's father and sister, and of course he can't forgive her for that, but he still loves her. He loves the girl he knew when he was ten, and the person she became(that is, the real Lucy, not her murderous side). He loves Lucy for who she really is, not the serial killer everyone else sees. Lucy loves Kouta because he befriended her when everyone else hated her for her horns. He was the reason she didn't want to kill anymore. When she thought he had betrayed her she gave in to her psychotic side, but she spent the rest of her life regretting it. Somehow, those things make me a huge fan of those two together.

Mine is Haruka & Michiru from Sailor Moon.
They are the first Yuri couple in anime world. They have been shown to be perfect together complete one another. Haruka is a tall short haired blond woman. in the anime she was wearing men's clothes most of the times, though she didn't clain ever that she was a man.and she didn't hide the fact that she is a woman. a very beautiful woman at that. in the manga she was seen wearing mini skirts all the time. She is an androgynous woman also she was created as if she was an actress in the Takarazuka revue playing the male roles. Michiru on the other hand is the epitome of femininity and beauty. in the anime is way more feminine than in the manga. Personality wise she is a very strong, sure for herself, blunt,naughty, out lesbian character. Together they are the epitome of perfection, Michiru was the one hitting on Haruka. Michiru is also stronger than Haruka NOT physically. They are equals in this relatioship, since Haruka is a strong yet very soft character, and Michiru is simply a woman who NOONE could ever tower over her. Women like Michiru would never fall in love with a man, Haruka fits Michiru so well because she has manly personality/mind but she also has the softness of a woman not only mental softness but also physical softness [velvet hairless skin, beauty] and she also doesn't have the need for dominance. Michiru fits Haruka for the same reasons except that Michiru doesn't have a manly personality but the female mastermind and the naughtiness of a vixen ;). In the manga there was a scene that can be labeled as the aftermath of a kiss. In the anime in the fifth season they shameless kinky flirting was just priceless, and in the Musicals 2 of the actresses shared a kiss on stage. Other than that everything else is left to the H&M fan's imagination. And all the above are the reasons I love them so fucking much!

Jack/Carly (Retributionshipping) from Yu-Gi-Oh! 5D's -- Riddled with spoilers!

When we were first introduced to these characters, Jack was a brash and difficult young man with an overinflated ego, caught up in the delusions of grandeur that his manipulative "mentor" wove around him; Carly was a well-meaning but ineffective reporter who tried her best, but as constantly walked over by her boss and the competition - she had dreams but not the force of will to make them happen, because people pushed her back.

They met under unusual circumstances, but even then there was a spark of <i>something</i> between them, as she tried to shield him from an attack and he was concerned for her (which, for an arrogant man like him, was quite something!) Carly, of course, developped a crush on him rather quickly, which led to a rather amusing "date" scene; Jack's feelings were much more ambiguous, but eventually left her "because he wanted her to be safe".

Stuff happened. She died, but for some people death isn't quite permanent. Jack found only her glasses, and assumed she had been sacrificed to the darkness; and he resolved to fight the enemy and save her, only she wasn't just part of the opposite side now, she was the one he was destined to fight.

Beautifully tragic, and it led to a mutual love confession and the first romantic-hug scene in YGO, before she died again. (But even that wasn't permanent!)

The reason why I like this couple is because they just fit, as the start of Jack's journey to redemption only came when Carly suggested "the old Jack Atlus had died, and now, the new Jack Atlus could live." But it's not completely one sided, as Carly has also developped thanks to Jack -- in a more recent episode, not only did she try to prove Jack's innocence of a spate of crimes, but she also stood up to her boss, refused to write an article that assumed he was guilty, and even said she didn't care if she was fired. This from a young woman who was frequently driven to panicking when the same threats were made, before she ever met Jack.

Unfortunately their relationship is currently in the vagueness of "more-than-just-friends-but-not-lovers", as there was a complication with her second resurrection, however she remains the only character who Jack will allow to invade his personal space! In my opinion, they really are the best possible thing for each other. He's steady enough to make sure that she doesn't dream too much and get hurt because of it; she's stubborn and now confident enough that she won't allow him to get away with his old nonsense, or slip back into bad habits.

If this became tl;dr, I'm sorry. Summarised: I love this couple because it works, it's healthy for both parties, they grow from each other and don't stagnate. The fact that it's canon (or as close as YGO will ever really get) is just the icing on an already satisfying cake.

Mine is Flaky x Flippy from HTF.

Flaky is the only characters in the series that can calm Flippy down when he Flips out. They are also both compassionate and caring at times, and insane at others.

Artemis Fowl X Holly Short

From the Artemis Fowl series

OF course it isn't official yet, but from what's been said about the plot and the way things are going, I'm expecting it to turn out like this in the end....IF the next book is the end.

6 Name: CiliaRAWR : 2010-07-16 04:18 ID:Np/PxxfQ

Shizuma x Nagisa from Strawberry Panic.

First anime I've ever watched and the canon couple made it to my OTP. It's kinda depressing/sad how they got together but in the end, they all get happy ^^ (Shizuma has lost her former lover and is all emo in the anime. Nagisa is the girl that brings back the color in her life and they both get drawn to eachother)

Jack/Renee, 24... since Calleigh/Horatio from CSI:Miami don't even have scenes any more, and since FIX is toying with us concerning Bones/Booth. Too bad we only got to see one episode of 'real love' from J&R, even though it has been building up for some. Why did they have to kill her? Ugh.

8 Name: Bitch Goddess : 2010-07-24 16:51 ID:KvolLJTp

Emma/Spinner from Degrassi. I've watched this series since it started in 2001 and have loved both these characters from the beginning, though never even thought of them being together. Up until this past Monday (the season premier for the who knows what season of Degrassi) I was always an Emma/Sean fan, but no more!

Emma is an animal loving, tree hugging, vegan do gooder. She sets up lunch time clean ups for the woods around the school, holds seminars on the benefits of wooden toilets, and gives presentations to the principle of MSG in the school food. She has an attraction for bad boys, but particularly Sean who she dates on and off for 7 years until he joins the Army.

Spinner is the teddy bear hidden in punk's clothing. Pierced, tattooed, complete with criminal record and bad ass band.

Such an unlikely pair but so adorable!!

Aang/Kaatara from Avatar: the last airbender

Such a nice and cute couple. Simple as that.

10 Name: Yemi Hikari : 2010-07-27 12:01 ID:/cS7fS6X

Martin and Rose, from the Redwall series. It was just so, very tragic, and plus, Martin is one of my favorite characters. Truth of the matter is, I tend to stay away from canon pairings, or the fandoms I am in, don't have any definate pairings to them.

11 Name: XxObsessivexX : 2010-08-09 06:39 ID:YZS6fhLs

i would have to say... SasuNaru

They have a very close bond in the anime and book, despite the asshole-ness Sasuke is being right now. They personalities even each other and guess what? Libra and Leo are a great compatible match =D

12 Name: xxLilMizCaityxx : 2010-10-31 14:50 ID:xeetfMHZ

My favourite CANON couple.... This is difficult.

Probably Hatsuharu Sohma and Isuzu Sohma from Fruits Basket.

Their history together and the fact that Rin had such a traumatic childhood from which Haru saved her... it just made me cry again and again. Albeit a LOT of that manga did make me cry again and again, but these two are so beautiful it's hard for them NOT to be my favourite! :)

13 Name: Lupa Dracolis : 2010-11-01 14:25 ID:7C7SBCI/

Rogue and Gambit... it's an interesting one. If you ask Gambit, it's definitely canon. Asking Rogue, however, is a whole different kettle of fish.

14 Name: TV Geek : 2010-11-01 15:27 ID:2qfJx62l

My favourite canon pairing ever?

Chris and Bianca from Charmed. I can't explain why, but I just loved the chemistry. The circumstances in which they managed to make a relationship work, and the fact that the writers of the show put so little time or energy into telling their story also just grabbed my attention. All you get to see is a couple of snapshots of their relationship and then her death, and his reaction to it, then she's only mentioned almost in passing in the next episode.

They just deserved more airtime than they got in my opinion.

Now I must apologise for going on so much in a thread where other people who post may not have much of a clue what I'm talking about. I'm sorry.

My favorite is Tenshinhan/Lunch in Dragonball, which is debatable for canon for the only reason that they aren't really discussed that much (more in the anime than the manga, certainly).

I'm really fond of many little flavor pairings like that. Like the couple that got engaged randomly near the end of Shaman King... that stuff amuses me.

16 Name: KaityT : 2010-12-11 12:01 ID:qb/uWkrL

Is a canon couple a couple that is actually in a series or show or whatever? Cuz my favorite coupling that I can think of is ShadowxAmy from Sonic but I don't think that counts...

17 Name: Marth : 2011-01-02 16:41 ID:c3qZkGe0

>>16 Yes. "Canon" is an official body of work, so a canon pairing is one that actually appears in an official body of work.

I tend not to gravitate toward canon pairings in the rare instances where I ship anyone at all, but I guess my favorite canon pairing right now is Scrooge McDuck/Goldie O'Gilt. Their canonicity is kinda debatable, since they've never officially been a couple (because they're both stubborn assholes), but they're obviously the love of each other's lives--Don Rosa has always been really clear on that point, and even way back in Carl Barks' "Back to the Klondike," they either have strong feelings for each other or Scrooge is acting really weird for no reason. Also, it's heavily implied that they've had sex, which is a pretty big deal, considering I don't think that happens anywhere else in Disney comics.

18 Name: kiotsukatanna : 2011-01-02 21:21 ID:3LqZrLRx

I'm actually pretty fond of Kyo Sohma and Tohru Honda from Fruits Basket.

:D Even before the manga ended and we discovered who ended up with who, I had thought that Kyo and Tohru were a much sweeter couple and better match than the now non-canon Yuki Sohma and Tohru Honda coupling.

19 Name: Mungetsu : 2011-01-03 08:56 ID:stQTIr5J

Does KiraxHinamori from Bleach count? It hasn't really happened, but it's not crack. (They're good friends.)

20 Name: THEKyuubi27 : 2011-01-03 18:38 ID:xHkId/hZ

I happen to like a good crack pairing of Naruto and Anko. Similar, only problem is age....but it could work if they were close to the same age.

21 Name: C : 2011-01-03 19:03 ID:N+R8hZfl

I would normally say something like, perhaps NaruHina, but fact of the matter is that it isn't technically, 'canon' in the manga.

If I could choose a one-sided romance of sorts in Naruto, it would have to be NaruHina, due to the fact that they work together and that it seems to be the only case of unrequited love that could still happen. I'm fairly sure that Sasuke has destroyed all chances of redemption, thus making SasuSaku rather improbable.

22 Name: jyuuken114 : 2011-01-03 23:11 ID:t3aH9VDF

>>17 I used to watch the cartoon when i was too young to know pairings and stuff... you know what i mean. i was very surprised when you said Scrooge and Goldie were a pair.

>>21. yeah, Naruhina would be my favourite too even though it is one sided
