Top Ten Tuesday

Top Ten Tuesday is hosted by The Broke and the Bookish.  This week's topic is:

Top Ten Book Romances That You Think Would Make It In The Real World (outside the book)

1.  Ron and Hermione 
First, they have both been through so much together that no one else would understand and they were friends for such a long time.  I think this relationship is a good, solid one.

2.  Tucker and Clara
If Clara would just stop being so darned wishy-washy, this is obviously a match made in heaven (lol!).  Tucker has been phenomenal when it comes to accepting the weirdness and I think that he would continue to show that rock solid steadfastness that makes real relationships work.

3.  Peeta and Katniss
This one is similar to Ron and Hermione because they have both experienced something together that no one else can understand.  Also, I think Peeta is one of those people who always puts others needs before his own so he will be understanding of Katniss and her need to space and solitude.  His softness combined with her hardness balances everything out in a way that Gale never would be able to.

4.  Amy and Roger
This one is so much fun to think about!  I really think that they did make it after the book and I think that they would make it in the real world.  They both had a growth experience in their trip and they had the time to actually learn a lot about one another.  I like to think that they continued that long after the book ended. : )

5.  Abbey and Caspian
These two were perfect for each other, except for that pesky problem that one of them was dead!  I think as long as they were both breathing, this pair would have a good shot in the real world!

6.  Vivian and Gabriel
This is the relationship that really would make it in the real world.  Not because they are the "same" and Adrian is a different species.  Adrian cannot accept Vivian as she is, but Gabriel can.  He not only understands that she is a werewolf, but he understands her need for independence and her stubbornness.  Even if there were no wolves, it is clear to me that Gabriel accepts the real Vivian and that is why this relationship would work.

7.  Kyle/Adrian and Lindy
There's a reason that a story like Beauty and the Beast still resonates with modern day audiences.  It's because there is a fundamental truth to the tale.  I think that some people really CAN see beyond the ugliness of a person and help that person to find the beauty within.  That's what this story is about.

8.  Ari and Bastian
I think these 2 are very much alike.  They both are pretty tough on the outside but willing to fight for those they love.  I think these qualities would make them compatible in the "real" world as well.

9.  Jase and Samantha
I think that this book was very realistic to begin with, so I think that this relationship could progress and make it the same way it did in the novel.  And I really root for this 'ship!

10.  Alina and Mal
This is the classic story of childhood sweethearts!  Of course it could happen in the real world.  It happens all the time.


So, what couples do you think would make it for real?   Any of mine that you think are doomed in the real world?  Leave me a comment and let me know!
