Day 21 – Favorite romantic/sexual relationship
The tragic in me is torn between Aragon and Arwen, Owen and Hazel (Simon Green’s Deathstalker series), and…
The sentimental in me is drawn to Lizzie and Darcy.
The realist in me drowns out all the rest for Benedick and Beatrice. I studied Much Ado in year 10, I think, and to discover that the acerbic, outspoken woman could get with the witty, smart-mouthed dude was an awesome thing.
Really, though, I am quite the most remarkable sucker for a good romance. Where ‘good’ is what I mean when I point at it and say, This is good… to coin a phrase. I actually don’t mind sappy, for example, when it’s done well and the characters are believable outside of the romance. And if there are explosions to liven the rest of the book up.
