It’s Valentine’s Day. Siiiiiiggghhhhh….
This is the most annoying, divisive holiday on the planet. People who are in love (and aren’t too cynical) like it because it gives them an excuse to be romantic with their significant other. Florists, candy makers, and greeting card companies LOVE it because it gives them an excuse to market their products more aggressively than at any other time of year.
Everyone else hates it. I’m part of “everyone else,” so today tends to bring out my misanthropic side. However, I am trying very hard not to be cynical. Love is, after all, a thing worth celebrating, and, to a certain extent, so are chocolate hearts.
So, in an effort to bring a little bit of positivity to this day, here are a few happy couples that don’t nauseate me–largely because they’re not real, but still. Happy Valentine’s Day from:
1. Eowyn and Faramir
2. Ten and Rose
3. Han and Leia
4. Wash and Zoe
5. Remus and Tonks
6. Dean and Baby
Here’s hoping all you readers find a valentine as wonderful as these characters did.
