I have the memory of a goldfish at the moment and I completely forgot that the adorable and lovely Siiri tagged me in this tag (created by Paper Riot) forever ago. I was stressing out last night because I didn’t have anything to post for the remainder of the week, and then I remembered that this was a thing and that Siiri thinks I’m cool enough to be tagged in it. I’m not the biggest fan of Halsey after discovering that she was rude about my Queen, Taylor Swift, but whatever. That’s not the point.
CASTLE: YOUR FAVORITE QUEEN
HRH Queen Elizabeth II Are we sure this is a book tag? Okay then. So I absolutely HAVE to mention Aelin, because she’s literally the queen of shadows. Then there’s Arianne Martell, who is the future queen of Westeros (I’m a stan), Raisa from Seven Realms, and yeah, I think that’s it.
HOLD ME DOWN: A SERIES YOU JUST CAN’T SEEM TO QUIT, NO MATTER HOW HARD YOU TRY
I’m perfectly fine with quitting series when they annoy me or I’m not enjoying them. I guess Hush, Hush has to be mentioned because even though I know it’s awful and problematic with a horrible love interest, I really enjoyed reading the books and I am still planning on eventually reading the final one. I don’t know, I apparently don’t have standards.
NEW AMERICANA: THE FICTIONAL FRIEND GROUP YOU’D WANT TO BE YOUR FIGHT THE APOCALYPSE SQUAD
Harry, Ron, and Hermione, of course! Or the Marauders (minus Wormtail) because I think they would be pretty useful. I also loved Siiri’s answer where she included Janelle and my SHIP from Unravelling, because they would be epic together. Working together, I mean. Obviously. *shifty eyes*
DRIVE: A COUPLE THAT NEEDS TO COMMUNICATE BETTER
EVERY. SINGLE. ONE. OF. MY. SHIPS. Bellarke especially.
HURRICANE: FAVOURITE STANDALONE
What’s a standalone?
Anything by Morgan Matson, or Ruta Sepetys’ WWII stuff. Because they’re absolutely fabulous and they kill me.
ROMAN HOLIDAY: CUTEST CONTEMPORARY COUPLE
Why is this restricted to contemporary? EVERYTHING IS SO UNFAIR. Fine, fine. I’m going with Gemma and Ford from Broken Hearts, because “cute” is the first word that comes to mind when I think of them. They’re absolutely adorable and they’re not even together yet. DON’T FUCK THIS UP FOR ME, MORGAN!
GHOST: MOST TRAGIC BREAK-UP
I’m stealing Siiri’s answer and saying Lara Jean and Peter because THAT WAS HORRIFYING. Can I also say that Tiger Lily and Peter from Tiger Lily ABSOLUTELY RIPPED MY HEART TO SHREDS. I was weeping on the floor. Also, Clarke leaving Bellamy at the end of Season 2. It totally counts as a breakup. Also VERONICA AND LOGAN. SLDHGDLKHGDKLHG.
P.S. I don’t know what Burn for Burn ship Siiri is going on about. There was no break up at all. Nope. She’s completely off her rocker and making stuff up.
COLORS: ONE OF YOUR FAVES WHO HURTS YOU A LOT BECAUSE THEY MAKE TERRIBLE DECISIONS
Ramsay Bolton I KID, I KID. His decisions aren’t that bad. I’m going to hell.
My faves never make terrible decisions because I stand by them no matter what. Yes, even Bellamy Blake. When I stan, I stan hard. I can justify pretty much everything.
STRANGE LOVE: CHARACTER A LOT OF PEOPLE DON’T GET BUT YOU ABSOLUTELY LOVE
Sansa Stark. Seriously. The fandom seem to hate her and her decisions but SANSA FOR QUEEN! Also people seem to misunderstand Gannicus from Spartacus a lot and it gets on my nerves. They don’t get his motivation or character at all and I want to hit them all with a wooden spoon.
COMING DOWN: BEST SEXY TIMES SCENE
HAUNTING: A BOOK OR CHARACTER YOU’RE STILL THINKING ABOUT
- The Martian by Andy Weir
- The Song of Achilles by Madeline Miller

- Unbreakable by Elizabeth Norris (*whispers* I hate youuuuu <3)
- Tiger Lily by Jodi Lynn Anderson
- Since You’ve Been Gone by Morgan Matson
- The Ask and the Answer by Patrick Ness
- Dark Places by Gillian Flynn
GASOLINE: FAVOURITE (SELF-)DESTRUCTIVE CHARACTER
GANNICUS. He is so broken and precious and I can’t even deal.
CONTROL: BEST VILLAIN
The ones from Gone Girl. Also that guy from Red Queen because he’s hella evil and I love it.
YOUNG GOD: CHARACTERS THAT SECRETLY WORSHIP EACH OTHER
- ROWAN AND AELIN
- ROSE AND DIMITRI
- JANINE AND BARCLAY
- VIN AND KELSIER
- LOCKE AND JEAN
- KELL AND RHY
WALK THE LINE: BEST RETELLING/REWORKING
Tiger Lily always and forever *weeps*. Also THE SONG OF ACHILLES. Just tear my heart out now.
IS THERE SOMEWHERE: OTP WITH OBSTACLES
Rose and Dimitri. Veronica and Logan. Katara and Zuko. Vin and Kelsier.
EMPTY GOLD: AN OTP THAT BECAME A NOTP
Mate. I stick with my OTPs until the very end.
TROUBLE: TOXIC RELATIONSHIP YOU SHIP EVEN THOUGH YOU KNOW BETTER
????????????????????? I don’t ship toxic relationships. Bad ones, yes, but not full on toxic. I honestly can’t think of one but if I’ve ever mentioned one then feel free to point it out. Admittedly, I used to ship a few horrible ships but I’ve since realised that they’re gross and I’ve ceased shipping them.
