S4S – Couples who need a sequel

Another week has gone by, another Sunday has arrived and it’s been somehow both a long week and a short one. It’s flown by but it’s been a hard one and I’m glad to see the back of it! I’m hoping things will calm down with any luck although amongst other things I’m off to Lego Land with my little family next week so we shall see. For now, at least it’s Six for Sunday time and this week the prompt is “Couples that deserve a sequel” which considering the past couple of weeks have been similar it was starting to get very difficult to pick some new and fresh ones but here we are and  I hope you enjoy them!

BRIEFING NOTE: Couple related spoilers are present throughout for Heartstopper, To Kill a Kingdom, The Mortal Instruments etc, Gemina/The Illuminae Files, Strange the Dreamer and Ouran High School Host club.

Nick and Charlie from Heartstopper by Alice Oseman.

I know they are getting a sequel and Alice updates Tapas with chapters regularly but these two will always need more because I love them so much.

Lira and Prince Elain from To Kill a Kingdom by Alexandra Christo

I would love for there to be a sequel with the gang all getting back together, crew and all!

Jace and Clary from City of Bones etc by Cassandra Clare

Okay so I know that they technically already have like, six books BUT I would love even just a short story about them running the institute or something. I hate to say it but I kind of miss them.

Nik and Hana from Gemina by Amie Kauffman and Jay Kristoff

I would love a story (short form or otherwise) of the two of them off on holiday or something after everything that happens. Hana just wants things to be normal so they try to go on a simple trip for a weekend, something like an exotic beach on another planet etc but then maybe there’s a hostage situation or something and things get all Die Hard? Oh my gosh. Die Hard meets Gemina yes, please.

Thyon Nero and Lazlo from Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor

So I know these two aren’t really a couple but I loved the chemistry between the two of them right at the beginning of Strange the Dreamer and I think I would love a soft little story with these two just being kind, it doesn’t have to be romantic, although I think Thyron has always had a bit of a thing for Lazlo, to be honest.

Tamaki Suoh and Haruhi Fujioka from Ouran High School Host Club by Bisco Hatori

So this couple is actually from a manga series I read years and years ago that ran for eighteen volumes (80-ish chapters) it was a sweet, silly series about a girl who pretends to be a boy in a male host club at a school for insanely rich kids so that she can pay back a huge debt she incurs when she breaks an incredibly expensive vase. Both Tamaki and Haruhi have trouble understanding and later confronting their feelings for each other but everything turns out okay in the end as Tamaki moves to the USA with Haruhi and unbeknownst to them until the last moment, the rest of the Host Club are their neighbours! I loved the series and it did have a really great end but I would still very much like to see another volume or maybe even a small mini-series about what the gang get up in the USA.

Let me know what your choices would be in the comments or send me a link to your Six for Sunday post for this week!

#SixforSunday – Fictional Partners

Sunday has arrived! The weather is glorious! Me and the little family went for a walk, I’m pooped. I proceeded to sleepily scroll through Twitter for about an hour when I came across the #SixforSunday prompts and knew this was something I had to join in for! This week’s prompt is from Steph at A Little but a lot and is….(drumroll please)

Favourite Fictional Partners!
This can be romantically, partners in crime or BFF’s.

I’ve never been a huge “Book Boyfriend” kind of person but on reflection there are a few fictional characters who hold my heart as well as a whole stack of them I’d love to hang out and cause mischief with! I had to think long and hard to narrow it down to just three.

  1. Jace Herondale – The Mortal instruments series etc by Cassandra Clare.
    Jace is the closest thing to a book boyfriend for me. I adore his sass, he’s gorgeous, talented, kicks butt and has the whole angsty puppy dog thing going on while being a little ambiguous at times which I’m all here for.
  2. Lazlo Strange – Strange the Dreamer by Laini Taylor.
    I will take Lazlo in any form, partner or BFF because I cannot get over him (especially with THAT VOICE! Thank you Steve West!) He’s a massive nerd that loves to read and he’s just so precious and pure. I imagine we’d probably just end up stuck in a library forever which I’m totally fine with thanks.
  3. Shazad – Rebel of the sands series by Alwyn Hamilton.
    This woman is absolute glorious, she’s totally kick ass, she is amazing at coming up with great strategies and she’s just downright fun. How could I say no?
  4. Newt Scamander – Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them.
    I would LOVE to go on adventures with this adorable, shy mazizoologist, exploring the world and learning about all the magical creatures in it sounds like my ideal career thank you very much. Well apart from the having to leave my house bit.
  5. Bilbo Baggins – The Hobbit and LOTR by J.R.R Tolkien
    Book Bilbo and film Bilbo both hold a very special place in my heart. Even as a child I thought myself rather like Bilbo, I loved the comforts of home, curled up with a book in the warm but I wanted adventure too but was always so bad at trying to find it myself so I think we’d get along and either adventure together or just eat a lot of second breakfasts. Burglar seeks advernture and great reward!
    6. Any member of the Court of Dreamers – ACOTAR series by Sarah J Maas.
    Cassian, Mor, Azriel, Amren, Feyre or Rhysand…any of them is fine for me in any capacity. Maybe Cas and Az could teach me to fight, me and Mor could go dancing, me and Amren could terrify the locals while we go out for food, Feyre could introduce me to Lucien and Rhysand could bestow sassy wisdom onto me while giving me an amazing tattoo?

So that was much much harder than I had at first thought. I literally got to five and panicked realising I could only pick one more so I kind of cheated a little bit with that sixth one I apologise! I will endeavour to join in with as many #sixforsunday challenges as possible in the future. That was far too much fun! Remember if you join in use the #SixforSunday hash tag on Twitter so I and everyone else can check out your posts! If you read this and do your own leave me a link to your post in the comments so I can see which six fictional characters you picked!
