Below is a fabulous musical accompaniment for the subject:
Wuthering Heights (Heathcliff and Cathy): my all time favorite novel got me hooked on love/hate when I was about thirteen. I borrowed the book from the library and never returned it, covetously hiding it under my bed until I needed the gut wrenching prose of Bronte. I've never seen a movie rendition that rocks my world though... "Catherine Earnshaw, may you not rest as long as I am living. You said I killed you--haunt me then." Heathcliff, you have a thing for melodrama, but it works for you.
Pride and Prejudice (Darcy and Lizzy): The ice cube and the stinging flame, Darcy and Lizzy meet each other with imagined detachment and Austen puts us through a journey of deception until, of course, this love/hate couple finally prevail. I quite like Darcy and Lizzy although they have been overdone in almost every sense possible. “She is tolerable, but not handsome enough to tempt me.” Oh Darcy, your denial is wrenching.
Star Wars (Han and Leia): "I love you" --"I know." Need I say more, it doesn't get any more boss than that.
Inuyasha (Inuyasha and Kagome): I'm a geek, I'm a geek, and hulu gave me such are terrible excuse to revisit all my favorite episodes. Inuyasha's faked indifference and Kagome's denial, it just works so well. I fangirl over this show and its on the pathetic side. "Osuwari!!"
Ranma 1/2 (Ranma and Akane): Basically the same story-line as Inuyasha but less angsty and completely hilarious. The voice actor for Ranma and Inuyasha is actually the same. It's an adorable show. "Akane, you are so uncute!!"
Beauty and the Beast: Robbie Beson essentially playing the same domineering role as in Ice Castles but furrier. And yes the beast does transform into a bit of a beefcake Prince Adam, but honestly, would you complain if you were Belle--er yeah, didn't think so. "Flower, chocolates, promises you don't intend to keep," the usual.
Any more love/hate shippers that rock your socks?? Share 'em!
