Top 6 Fictional Couples

There are many fictional couples who inspire us. We look for these traits in others, and we believe in their love. The following is a few inspirational and well loved fictional characters in no particular order.

1. Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy – Pride and Prejudice.

Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy’s two’s relationship begins rocky, and remains so for much of the book due to misunderstandings, by the end of the novel it’s smooth sailings for Jane Austen’s couple. Pride and Prejudice is a story of love and courtship, in which love is the goal for these two young people in a society who base marriage on a “good match”.

2. Sabrina Fairchild and Linus Larrabee- Sabrina

In the 1954 romance Audrey Hepburn plays the Larrabee’s chauffeurs daughter, Sabrina, who returns from culinary school in Paris as a elegant and attractive woman, and Humphrey Bogart plays the Larrabee’s eldest son, Linus. Most of her life Sabrina had been in love with the younger brother, David, who finally notices her when she returns from Paris with her new elegance, but will soon fall for Linus as he falls for her when the family charges him with keeping her away from David.

3. Princess Leia and Han Solo – Star Wars

Leia and Han are both brave, outspoken characters. Upon meeting there is tension. Tension sometimes arises when there is attraction, but both refuse to admit it, and that is just the case with these two. Eventually the two would swallow their pride and admit their love for one another.

4. Molly and Arthur Weasley – Harry Potter

 

They are the creators of the much loved Weasley Family in the Harry Potter series. They’re the ideal parents to orphaned Harry; caring, sweet, fond of one another, and slightly smothering. They love one another and every single of their red-headed clan, and whomever else they happen to take in.

The two have their strengths, and come together as a wise team. In marrying Aragon, Arwen chooses to be mortal and stay in Middle-Earth. Arwan’s choice shows us that she would rather live a mortal life with love, then an endless life without it.

Romeo and Juliet, a tragic love story known by all. Though these two will not live ‘happily ever after’, their story shows the power of love and has been cherished for many centuries.

 

 

Travel Essentials

Packing for a journey I am soon to take got me thinking about what my travel essentials are. It is very easy for one to take hopping on a plane for granted, but for me each time I get on a plane it is exciting and new. The following are some of my travel essentials.

1. A small journal or notebook.

I like to write things down in the evenings when I am somewhere away from home. A small notebook that fits into your bag is perfect for this. My favorite notebook, and the one I will be bringing on this trip, is the classic Moleskine notebook.

2. A good book.

When traveling anywhere there are always moments to kick back for a moment and a good book is perfect for that. Picking books that have to do with your travel destination is always nice, if you’re reading on the way or while there. Classics or books you know you can read again and again are great for trips. Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice is one of those for me.

3. Converse

Wherever I go I always know I can count on my trusty converse. Any pair of sneakers that you know you can use are great!

4. IPod

Whether you listen to music on a plane, in the car, or just hanging out it’s always great to have a soundtrack to your travels.

5. Patagonia down sweater

It’s always great to be prepared for whatever weather that may come at you and a Patagonia down sweater does just that for you. Patagonia’s are sometimes referred to as “patagucci’s” due to their expensive price, but in the long run it is definitely worth the price.

6. A small bag

Though it is not always possible, I always strive to fit into a small carry on luggage. If possible, this makes traveling much easier and less stressful.
