An OTP I have discovered is a One True Pairing. I've heard the term OTP but never knew what it was until today. I have a strange surge to talk about some of the wonderful romances I've come across in my years of reading. I don't think I've met a pairing that didn't get together that I loved more than the actual pairing.
Some people apparently like to pair two people who aren't canon which means it didn't happen in the original story. For example: Some people thought Harry and Hermione should be together. It's not canon because those two didn't end up together. I'm writing this down because I want to have it somewhere where I can remember it since I've always seen it around but never figured out what all this means.
I was going to use Juliet and another character from the Shatter Me series to represent my OTP. I also thought of Clara and another character but I figured with both picks I would have to put up spoiler warnings everything. So I decided to pick two characters from the book I just read. Karou and Akiva from Daughter of Smoke and Bone.
These two! They just have the craziest relationship. And you don't even figure out (at least I didn't) what's happening between them until the last chapters. Their growing relationship was built on curiosity and tenderness. I just love the way Akiva looks at her like he knows that she's the one. From the beginning they were drawn to each other. Karou's kindness bridging a gap between her kind and his. It just makes me so happy to see them together. I don't get super giddy with this couple like I usually do. I feel a calm happiness towards their love because it's like I already know they belong together. Their love is so natural. But, almost everyone is against them. They just don't understand them together. Such sad star-crossed lovers. *Sigh*
I know I wrote only a small amount but this is only book one! And this is how I feel about them. They are so right together. If it doesn't work out I think I'm going to cry!
Challenge #4: Book Spine Poetry
The fourth challenge I am participating in is a Book Spine Poetry over at My Little Pocketbooks. I am creating a poem with at least 3 books. For each book I can add one extra word that's not on the spines of the books.
Desires of the dead
Echo in time
Searching for the end;
It's not the worst poem in the world. I kind of like it even if it's kind of morbid.
