The OTP Book Tag

otp

Okay, I am terribly behind on my tags and I am sorry for that, so it has occurred that I wasn’t just tagged by one person, but by two people to do The OTP Book Tag! Thanks to Jordyn @J. Bookish and Cristina @My Tiny Obsessions for giving me the chance to talk some more about bookish love! ❤

1. AN UNPOPULAR OTP THAT YOU SHIP

So difficult! I can’t believe I am even saying this after Glass Sword, but Mare and Maven? I wouldn’t even know how to explain it and it’s not that I don’t like Cal, because I do, but … Maven. I think I might need help …

2. AN OTP THAT YOU DIDN’T SHIP BUT NOW YOU DO

Well, I definitely couldn’t see what all the fuss about Juliette and Warner was when I first started the Shatter Me series. By the end I most certainly got it and wouldn’t have wanted it any other way! Go Warner!

3. YOUR MOST HATED OTP

Is that a thing? Do people really hate couples? … hmm, I know something! Whichever poor chap ends up with Eadlyn Schreave from The Heir has my pity. She’s more than just a piece of work.

4. AN OTP THAT TOOK WAY TOO LONG TO GET TOGETHER

Almost every book couple ever? Well, Lila and Kell from the Shades of Magic series sure are taking their time. We are on book two and they are clearly meant for each other but they are nowhere near that stage of getting together. I wouldn’t say it’s frustrating, but it definitely would be easier to just see them happy together.

5. YOUR FAVOURITE NON-CANON OTP

The Magicians are very different in their book-form than they are on TV, but then they are very similar again as well. I’m probably not making much sense to you right now. I just feel like Eliot loves Q more in the books and I kind of shipped them in a weird way, even though I know Q never really considered it. Doesn’t mean I can’t, right?

6. YOUR FAVOURITE BROTP

Ugh, my answers are so darn repetitive. I am going to think of someone other than Will and Jem from TID. I CAN DO THIS!

*15-30 minutes of thinking later* AAAAH! Why didn’t I think of that faster? Darrow and Sevro from the Red Rising trilogy belong together forever. They are bros for life and probably even after that, because let’s face it, not even death could really sever their connection.

7. AN OTP YOU ADORED IN THE BOOKS BUT NOT AS MUCH IN THE MOVIES OR TV ADAPTATION

I wouldn’t say I “adored” Clace during The Mortal Instruments, but I liked them. Obviously! They were the main characters and I stuck with them through 6 books. However, they don’t really work on Shadowhunters for me. Both, Dom’s and Kat’s acting improved over the season, but they are still not there for me. The looks they give each other and whenever they kiss … I am just scared that Kat is going to smear Dom’s runes because they look like bad make-up to me.

8. A POPULAR OTP THAT NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY YOU JUST CAN’T SHIP IT

Totally have to steal Jordyn’s answer here, but I simply don’t feel Emma and Jacob from the Miss Peregrine’s Peculiar Children at all. They were children, that wasn’t love! It was just ridiculous. And the fact that she already unsuccessfully dated his grandfather should have been a serious red flag as well.

9. YOUR FAVOURITE LGBT+ OTP

I hope you are not getting bored of this answer, but it is still Malec. Those two just have the biggest room in my heart and they will stay there for a whole lot longer.

10. YOUR ALL TIME FAVOURITE OTP

That’s like asking me to choose a favourite child and I don’t even have children! Currently reading Lady Midnight makes me really like Emma and Jules together, but to say they are my favourite of ALL TIME would be the overstatement of the year.

I TAG:

This tag has been around for a couple of months and I have lost track of who has done it or not. That means, I tag EVERYONE who hasn’t done it yet!

  1. Malec forever and ever! Love those two as well! And Clace on Shadowhunters is just weird. No chemistry whatsoever. I was actually relieved when they had the brother/sister storyline start so I wouldn’t have to deal with their awkward kisses.

    • Malec are just such a lovely couple! My heart glows whenever they come up on the show or the books or just generally anywhere.
      I was worried they might skip the sibling-storyline because they changed so much, so I was relieved when that happened too, even though i hated it in the books.

  2. Awww! I love this post too much *add more love to the air* ❤ HUGE YASS to Lila and Kell, and I have a great laugh on your most hated OTP haha… I actually enjoy The Selection a lot, but The Heir & Eadlyn just wear me down. Awesome post!! 😀

  3. Red Queen is one funny series. I could have gotten on board with Mare and Cal in RQ (or her being solo, whatever). I also could have gotten on board with Mare and Maven in GS (or her being solo, whatever). SO IT IS ALL WEIRD.

    While I saw the one-sidedness in Eliot and Quentin…I’m more for this polygamous ship of the three-way sexy times with Margo, Eliot, and Q LOL.

    • Yeah, I get that Mare could always just be solo, but it was the OTP tag. I had to mention some sort of coupling hahaha
      I KNOW that you are more for the threesome version, but I was going for the book characters more than the TV ones and I hated Margo (who was called Janet) in the written version. She wanted to break up Q and Alice on purpose and she wasn’t nearly as fun with Eliot.

  4. It’s also really disturbing to me that Jacob looks so much like his grandfather. Like is that the only reason Emma ‘fell in love’ with him? (I refuse to acknowledge that they even loved each other. It went so fast that it was incredibly unrealistic) And I have no idea why Jacob even fell in love with Emma. And definitely agree with you on Clace of course! I think Kat and Dom are at their best when they have scenes with other people, instead of each other. It’s crazy because when you watch behind the scenes videos they look like they’re having fun and they actually have chemistry. Why can’t they have that on screen haha. *oh and insert fangirl moment over MALEC*

    • I refuse to acknowledge that too! Emma and Jacob are the most ridiculous couple ever and I don’t know why anyone would ship them. I think they might work way better in the movies. I just never really got Emma as a character … so that didn’t help in making me like her.
      The BTS footage of Shadowhunters can be so deceptive, because you are right, they have more chemistry off screen than on screen, which makes me sad. I think the show got better, but never really as good as I hoped it would be. Except Alec Baewood, he is just gorgeous!

      • I definitely hope they work better in the movie! Yeah same here, but then again I never really got any of the characters.
        My expectations for the show were pretty low (even though I was excited) since I’ve been disappointed in adaptations before, so it was a welcome surprise. It could still get a lot better though! It already improved within one season, so who knows how much it will improve in season 2 🙂 Alec Baewood is just perfection.

      • True … how do you feel about Hollows now?
        I hope they get some more money for special effects and think the story through more than one episode at a time. They closed some doors for things from the book already.

      • I definitely get why you want one as a pet! Though I do prefer my pets fluffy and adorable 😛 Yeah that’s what worries me too. I really hope they didn’t just make things very difficult for themselves. I do like that Jocelyn is already awake though. If they had kept her asleep for three seasons it would be quite boring haha.

        Liked by 1 person

      • I prefer fluffy animals too, but they kind of grew on me. I even felt sorry for them and Jacob just let them all get slaughtered.
        I like that Jocelyn is awake too. Opens up for some good possibilites (like the sibling-story not stretching on forever maybe?)

        Liked by 1 person

      • Yeah Jacob could’ve taken better care of them. Those poor things. I felt sorry for them too, especially for the one they put inside the machine.
        Yeah I really hope the ‘incest’ plot line will be over and done with soon (I even hoped that they wouldn’t introduce it, but I guess that would be too big of a change)
