top 5 formative otps

  1. Disney - as I’m sure y’all are well aware, it’s impossible to be born in the middle of the Disney Renaissance WITHOUT at least one of these pairs becoming formative. And like, I literally could not choose between them like THINK ABOUT THE RELATIONSHIP ARCHETYPES YOU LIKE princess/thief? THANKS ALADDIN complex women and goofy dudes who love them? I WATCHED ‘I WON’T SAY I’M IN LOVE LIKE A THOUSAND TIMES red riding hood/wolf and every single riff on that trope? TALE AS OLD AS TIIIIIME and like, even just images/scenes from Disney were so formative like POCAHONTAS THROWING HERSELF OVER JOHN SMITH OH GOD OH GOD I AM A LEGALLY RECOGNISED ADULT AND I STILL CRY EVERY SHITSUCKING TIME ITS NOT OK ITS NEVER GONNA BE OK 
  2. Sailor Moon/Tuxedo Mask - when I was a kid - like, kindergarten or earlier - they used to play the golden trifecta of Pokemon/Sailor Moon/Dragonball Z in the morning and we would watch them every day before school and oh man Sailor Moon was like my LIFE for a good while there. Like once my mum got really angry at me for breaking an umbrella because I had been using it as a sailor sceptre in our garage i was OBSESSED. So yeah this otp got me real early and man okay I HONESTLY DON’T UNDERSTAND WHY PEOPLE DON’T LIKE BICKERING/GRADUAL LOVE STORIES BECAUSE THAT SHIT WAS MY BREAD AND BUTTER AS A KID like he called her meatball head!! She found him irritating but actually was kind of fond of him and at night theY FLIRTED AND FOUGHT CRIME TOGETHER HE THREW ROSES AROUND and okay like THEY ARE REINCARNATED SPACE ROYALTY THEIR DAUGHTER TRAVELS BACK IN TIME TO BE WITH THEM LITERALLY WRITTEN IN THE STARS OTP
  3. Rhett/Scarlett - THEY WERE THE BEST THEN AND THEY ARE THE BEST NOW but yeah when i first read this book i was soooo young and i was really confused because like they were both really? awful people? and like idk most of the things you watch/read as a kid have a pretty straightforward, justifiable hero and scarlett is just… not like SOME OF THE SHIT SHE SAYS AND THINKS ABOUT MELANIE ALONE LMAO but yeah the way they’re written and how through the whole book Rhett is the one person Scarlett KNOWS she can depend on and how she always unconciously goes to him for help or just to be understood and he like takes all her shit and gives back in equal amounts because he understands that they’re true equals and he knows how rare that is LIKE I SAID THEY WERE A LOT and like, I know the ending leaves a lot of people angry but imo it’s obvious that they’re gonna end up together again? Because the story initially seems like it’s framed around the war/reconstruction but it’s actually framed around their relationship IT IS THE STRUCTURE OF THE WHOLE BOOK because itS THE MOST IMPORTANT RELATIONSHIP IN BOTH OF THEIR LIVES so yes baby’s very first horrible people who love each other otp AND PROBABLY STILL THE BEST NGL NGL i could talk about them forever
  4. Heathcliff/Cathy - oh god this fucked up lana del rey song relationship oh mAN. I read this book pretty soon after gone with the wind (just after jane eyre, actually. it was a very intense month of reading on the bus for me) and like damn. daMN here is a relationship that is 100% completely the villain of the story, the driving force for the misery of pretty much EVERY SINGLE CHARACTER and like, Heathcliff and Cathy just DO NOT CARE becausE WHATEVER SOULS ARE MADE OF, HIS AND MINE ARE THE SAME and like, to me the book/relationiship isn’t a romance, it completely throws all concepts of romance out the window and shows you this connection between two people that is like a black hole and it just sucks in and feeds on everything around it because it’s just impossible for them to care about anything or anyone else EXCEPT EACH OTHER. Idk I think that was a really fascinating idea when I was younger and it still fascinates me now. I also remember being really shocked at how visceral the book - and especially Heathcliff - were. Because like you’re so used to seeing/hearing that love will ~last forever and that the spirit~ of a person lives on after they’re gone but Heathcliff is just like NOPE. I LOVED A /PERSON/ AND THAT PERSON IS GONE SO I’M GOING TO DIG UP HER GAVE AND DANCE AROUND WITH HER BONES IN THE MIDDLE OF THE FUCKING NIGHT and it was really mindblowing to me i don’t know IM STILL MESSED UP ABOUT IT NOW 10+ YEARS ON GOD DONUT EMILY BRONTE
  5. Vegeta/Bulma - lmao ok there are people out there, in the world, who watch this show anD HATE VEGETA THEY HATE THIS IDIOT DOUCHELORD PRINCE IT IS UNFATHOMABLE TO ME we started watching in like the cell saga??? i think?? i definitely remember like 10 episodes of goku gathering a spirit bomb WHATEVER anyway the Buu arc is literally EVERYTHING and like VEGETA. USING HIS WISH TO RESTORE THE WORLD IT’S SO MUCH IT’S SO MUCH and okay like vegeta and bulma are the GREATEST because she’s like this high strung semi-wreck of a person and he’s just the vainest most self absorbed IDIOT but they love each other SO MUCH and she won’t take any of his bullshit and he’s just like ‘ok bulma, whatever, ur freakouts mean nothing to me ME KING VEGETA’ he fucking named his planet PLANET VEGETA im gonna and also TRUNKS TRUNKSSSSS THEIR TIME TRAVELLING HEARTTHROB DICK CHILD AND ACTUAL DRACO MALFOY OF THIS SERIES goten/trunks is the most harry/draco dynamic tbh T B H but yes i loved this whole trash family a lot 


Shoutout to Niles/CC THE ULTIMATE LOVE/HATE PAIR and also the american dude/the russian girl from Captain Planet THEY LOVED EACH OTHER AND THEY WERE SO MAD ABOUT IT, Darla/Alfalfa from The Little Rascals YOU’RE SCUUUUM BETWEEN MY TOES, and Brandi/Prince Charming from that Cinderella she was in, i LOVED that movie as a kid

ATTACK ON FUCKIN TITAN

1. Favorite one-off episode

Probably the episode when Eren is going after the female titan and Mikasa and Levi are going after him and thEY HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER AND HE’S LIKE ~INSTRUCTING HER they’re my faves and their interactions are everything tbh. ALSO the episode with Mikasa’s backstory oh my GOD and like the scene where she realises Eren’s still alive and just flat out starts BAWLING nah mate n a h m a t e

2. Favorite villain

Annie? ANNIE. Can’t WAIT for her to bust out of that crystal shell incubation pod thing and join the main plot again. Actually like expand that to Reiner too because he’s so messed up and i love him a lot ‘hey eren actually me and bertholt are those giant ass evil titans that led to your mum dying and the start of the actual extinction of your race lol yolo’ BUDDY. BRO.

3. Least favorite “main character”

I don’t know??? I like all the main kids well enough, there’s just some I like more than others. Maybe erwin cause like THAT FUCKER IS NOT TO BE TRUSTED. HE KNOWS SOME SHIT. HE HAS THIS EVIL GLINT IN HIS EYE THAT ALMOST ASSUREDLY MEANS DEATH FOR LIKE 60-65% OF THE MAIN CAST AND I AIN’T DOWN WITH THAT

4. Favorite “sidekick”

I don’t knoooow like what do you consider a sidekick? Like I personally wouldn’t say Mikasa is Eren’s sidekick (their relationship is way more complex than that, and also she takes up such an important place by herself in the narrative), but I know some people would argue that she is idk idk I LIKE PRETTY MUCH EVERYONE OK

5. Character you love to hate.

Guys I don’t trust that gorilla motherfucker. Also I am highly HIGHLY suspicious of this ””king”” TRUST NO ONE IN THE TITAN DYSTOPIA

6. Favorite friendship

Levi/all his friends who DIE. Levi/Eren this fucked up manipulative possibly world saving relationship THERE IS NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT LEVI WOULD KILL HIM BUT THERE IS ALSO NO DOUBT IN MY MIND THAT IT WOULD DESTORY HIM TO DO IT and also I NEED A PROPER LEVI/MIKASA MENTOR/STUDENT RELATIONSHIP SO MUCH the weird gruding respect they have for one another is the best because THEY’RE SO SIMILAR I LOVE THEM A LOT

A lot of the other friendships I like (ymir/historia, hanji/levi) kind of verge into ship territory so

7. Friendship that never felt real to you.

I’m sure it was pretty great and it was sad when he died and all but like i just don’t care about Marco I’M SORRY I’M SORRY but he was like, not even a main character and he died so early on and i got so many kids who are, by some miracle, still alive to worry about and their impending deaths are gonna fuck me up hella good so i just DONT HAVE SPACE TO CARE ABOUT HIM OR MARCO/JEAN SRYSYERYRYRYR

8. Favorite wise-guy/jokester character

Umm i don’t know… Hanji? Like I don’t think she’s a ~wise guy~ but she tries to crack jokes sometimes and just the blase reception from everyone else (LEVI) is so good. Also YMIR OH MY GOD YMIR she’s so totally that person with the cheesiest sense of humor and she cracks like, the worst jokes or dorky puns and laughs super hard at herself and everyone else is like ‘ymir please god stop’

9. Least favorite villain

THAT TITAN THAT FUCKING LIKE CRAWLS ON ALL FOURS AND LIKE TILTS ITS HEAD UNNATURALLY WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCKEDY FUCK Y’ALL NEED JESUS

10. Least favorite storyline

I feel like they were jumping around rooftops for like 50 episodes at the start there. Like seriously.

11. Talk about a character with a bad story or character arc.

It’s hard to say with ongoing series because like, you can’t look at the character’s complete arc and it’s just guesswork for most of the main characters. Having said that - Petra :( Like I get /why/ she was killed but it still SUCKED and she deserved better smh smh. Also like the way the anime has treated Annie’s storyline and all the sexualised imagery associated with it just leaves a bad taste in my mouth WHY U GOTTA

12. Character that just pisses you off no matter how much you try to like them.

TRUST NO ONE IN A POSITION OF AUTHORITY. TRUST NO ONE WHO SAYS WEIRD SHIT AND DOESN’T CLARIFY. EREN’S DAD IS THE WORST. THE TITAN JESUSCULT MUST DIE

13. Plot device used too much

Look. No one can bite through their hand that easily I’M SORRY

14. Favorite character death scene

Literally how to pick???? lmao I don’t know, most of the deaths are really horrible in this series because you don’t see them coming and they’re so grisly on the real. I guess I’ll have to go with Eren’s ””’death”” because like here i am, watching critically acclaimed anime attack on titan, oh there’s the main character look at him go fighting those tita-OH G OH GOD?? OH MY GOD DID HE JUST GET EATEN WHAT THE FUCK WHAT THE FRESH ASS FUCK WHO RECOMMENDED THIS TO ME WHO CAN I SUE

15. An abandoned or unanswered plot line that will always bug you.

DID ASSHOLE PAPA JEAGER MAKE EREN A SHIFTER OR JUST GIVE HIM THE ABILITY TO CONTROL THE CHANGE? HOW DID THE TITANS TAKE OVER IN THE FIRST PLACE? WHERE EXACTLY IS THE WALL COMPLEX LOCATED? WHERE IS THIS MYTHICAL TITAN SHIFTER VILLAGE AND WHY DO THEY WANT HUMANITY DEAD AND WHY ARE THE SENDING 11YOS TO DO THEIR DIRTY WORK? WHAT DOES ERWIN KNOW? WHAT DOES THE WALL CULT KNOW? WHO IS THIS ”’KING”’ AND WHAT DOES HE KNOW? WHO IS THE GORILLA TITAN? WHY DOES HE LOOK LIKE A FUCKING GORILLA? HOW DO BERTHOLT AND REINER KNOW THE GORILLA TITAN AND WHAT IS THEIR ENDGAME AND MOST IMPORTANTLY IS ANYTHING IN THIS SERIES EVER GOING TO BE GIVEN A PROPER RESOLUTION
