Romance Fails in Fiction Tag

Hey! Thanks to Shophie @blameitonchocolate  for tagging me to do this tag! Her blog is content, ya’ll should so check it out!

The Rules:

  • Please PINGBACK to me at Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities. Or just Kate. And PINGBACK TO A SPECIFIC POST OF MINE.  I won’t see the post otherwise, and I’d like to see it.
  • You can choose ten romance fails from ANY media you like: books, movies, anime, manga, T.V shows, or Webtoons. You can even mix them up if you want.
  • You can choose funny fails or serious ones; for the serious ones, phrase it humorously. Remember, this is a fun tag! It’s not meant to be serious.
  • Mention who’s who in the fails. (I.E, who fails and who is the recipient of the failure). If there isn’t  recipient, per se, just state the couple (or non-couple).
  • Optional: Rank the failures from least extreme to most extreme.
  • 5 failures at LEAST.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but at least one person.

So i usually don’t have fails in books since most of the time you already know where it’s going, but in TV, that happens a lot of time.

  • Betty and Archie (Riverdale)


Although i am warming up towards Betty and Jug – not too much towards Veronica and Archie though,  i’ve just shipped Betty and Archie for too long, like dude what’s better than a friendship turned romance with their windows overlooking each other? NOTHING!

  • Serena and Nate (Gossip Girl)


Dan, Serena? Seriously? You choose him over the ever so charming and handsome and loving Nate? I still can’t get over how wrong Serena and Dan are and how she needs to end up with Nate.

Seriously Serena??

  • Lindsay and Lucas (One Tree Hill)


Dude so i’m going to be real. Peyton and Lucas are super cute- and so is their story, but i started watching OTH from season 5 and so I just started shipping Luke with Lindsay , and personally for me, my first ship always stays with me. Just like Betty and Archie.

  • Alicia and Jack (Fear the Walking Dead)


Like how can you leave Jack?? I would prolly just throw him down on the boat and take him away with me if i had a chemistry like theirs. I thought, old fashioned radio romance- Yes please! Apparently not for them.

  • Ophelia and Liam (The Royals)


Dude they had a connection and chemistry like no one else, what the heck? Why would you leave a hot prince?? aha

  • Ygritte and Jon Snow (Game of Thrones) 


Do I even need to say anything? Okay i agree whatever happened was not their fault but i can’t get over them.

Who is your favorite fictional couple?


I tag:




And of course anyone whom i haven’t tagged, can still go ahead and do this! Have a great time!

  1. Hahahaha I love how you’re in shock over Serena’s decision because I mean, what the heck indeed!!! I would never trade cute little Nate for… Awkward Dan? I don’t even remember what his personality is like. And they had such great chemistry! I don’t get it D:
    Ophelia and Liam were cute, of course, but my heart belongs to Jaspenor ❤ (still, why was she written off the show I wonder?)
    I need to check out Fear of the Walking Dead, even though I hate zombies xD
    Thanks for doing the tag ❤ ❤

    1. Hahaha I mean who would ever not want Nate? I was so sure they would still end up together in the end. Though Blair and Chuck made up for it.
      And I know! Jaspenor is one of my all time favorite couples, they’re just amazing. I love how Jasper is always so stoic and Eleanor literally ignores that and jumps on him haha.
      I find zombies fascinating but then I watch too much everyday and have nightmares. Not fun.


  2. Mine’s from a movie, but I loved Wonder Woman’s interaction with Steve Trevor, the pilot, in the movie. It was funny watching him have to defer to her in battle, and at the same time, he was never emasculated. It was well done!

  3. I totally agree with you on Prince Liam and Orphelia! They were AMAZING together. I’m so sad she’s not on the show anymore. :/
    And Serena and Dan… Well… They were kind of cute but Serena and Nate were a more power couple.
    As for Archie and Betty. I am so happy she’s with Jug now. Archie turned into such an annoying character, just like Veronica. So I guess they both deserve each other. HA! 😉

    1. Right? Me too! I legit shipped them so bad from day one. Any girls dream man… okay most but I would’ve dieeeed.
      Serena and Dan were honestly whatever for me, didn’t like dan much . Serena and Nate would’ve rocked it.
      Yes!! I thought I was the only one starting to like Archie and Veronica less lol. Good to know I’m. It alone!
