So here we go!
>Rey and Finn of The Force Awakens
In Last Jedi? Maybe not so much. But in TFA?
I dare you to tell me they're not precious and perfect.
>Cassian and Jyn of Rogue One
You'll find no spoilers here, but suffice it to say...I cried my little head off at this ship. I adore it. The two of them are my favorites, both separately and together and just all of it. This movie, y'all. This movie. <333
>Beatriz and Pete from All the Crooked Saints
I had not planned on reading this book. I also didn't plan to fall absolutely head-over-heels in love with it. But did I anyway? Yep.
Even with everything there is to love about this book (it's pretty much perfect just as it is) the highlight is the ship. Pete is a young man with a hole in his heart who wants to help people and maybe is TOO selfless. Beatriz is a girl who is convinced she has no feelings and sort of hates people. The romance is a slow-burning one that is utterly satisfying, swoon-worthy, and beautiful. I adore it with all my heart.
>Cress and Thorne of TLC
Okay, so I'm not a HUGE fan of the "bad-boy-plus-good-girl" trope, especially because that sets unhealthy expectations for REAL girls who think they can change the bad boy. It's not true, and it doesn't work. However, when there's a boy who's determined to change HIMSELF to make himself worthy of HER...BE STILL MY BEATING HEART. One of my favorite tropes of all time and agghhh.
>Leith and Renna of Blades of Acktar
They're precious and adorable and I adore them. With all my heart. Leith is a little assassin and Renna is a healer girl and they fit together SO nicely. I love it.
>WALL-E and EVE
I'm aware that they're robots from a kids' movie. I'm aware that they don't have a REAL romance, if that's what you're looking for. But WOW I love them.
>Yael and Luka of Wolf by Wolf
They're kind of the star-crossed lovers of this list...I don't usually go for star-cross-ism but in this case YES. YES PLEASE. ALL THE YES.
>Leonard (Lionheart) and Rose Red of Tales of Goldstone Wood
These two ARE my OTP. I adore them with all my heart. My sweet precious babies who are so broken and alone, but so so beautiful...I cried and shipped and I LOVE THEM SO INSANELY MUCH.
>Howl and Sophie of Howl's Moving Castle
The original grouchy old married couple, and I love them. The banter is the best, as is Sophie's habit of bossing Howl and Howl just hating it. These two are one of my ultimate ships. Thank you. That will be all. *sweeps a bow*
>Father Tim and CynthiaPersonally, I think the Mitford Novels series is what you get when you're looking for Christian fiction that really stands out in its depiction of mature adults seeking Christ. Godly characters, strong stories, beautiful homeiness combined with the horror of the real world....it's wonderful and I can't recommend them enough. The main romance between the two main characters is one of my favorite relationships of ever.
(Note: none of the above were in any given order. Just the order in which I thought of them.)
Now for the Honorable Mentions!
