This week’s topic is all about non-canon ships, and I love it.
These are the couples you love, but they never got together in canon (canon meaning: what actually happened in the text). Or that did get together, but weren’t together in the end of the series. Or a couple you ship but it’s actually impossible for them to be together because they are from different worlds, franchises, etc. Let your shipper heart run wild. I know mine will.
I decided to keep this topic in between characters from the same books/series. Be warned, there will be rants. (Yeah, there’s overlapping books from last week- sorry!)
Nikolai Lantsov and Alina Starkov- I will forever 100% be mad that this was not the main relationship of this series. I don’t even know how long ago I read these books now- 1 or 2 years, but I still ship these two hardcore. Mal sucks, the Darkling has always been kinda meh in my mind, but Nikolai is a precious little gem. #Nikolai4lyfe
Rose Hathaway and Adrian Ivashkov- If you’ve read literally any of my six Vampire Academy book reviews, you may have picked up that I absolutely despise Rose and Dimitri’s stupid relationship. Rose may have treated Adrian like crap, but they worked so much better in my opinion.
Simon Lewis and Maia Roberts- I adore Simon and Izzy, but as they are very canon, they don’t count for this. However, I did really like Simon and Maia together. Maia was his first real relationship getting over Clary, and I appreciated the fact how Clare handled the mess of a vampire and a werewolf dating.
Celaena Sardothien and Chaol Westfall- Real talk time. I don’t like Rowan and Aelin one bit, but more on that when I actually get around to finishing Empire of Storms. When reading the first three books, I was a hardcore Chaolaena fan. I think their personalities fit and they had some fun, witty banter.
Eadlyn Schreave and Kile Woodwork- While I did like who Eadlyn chose in the end of this duology, I do have to admit that she and Kile had an actual relationship, and I suppose they were pretty cute together. I’m sure America liked Kile better, considering he was Marlee’s son.
