Oh How Pinteresting! #FictionalCharacters : Shipping 'Em Like FedEx
I found the coolest thing on Pinterest. It's Isabelle Disraeli's boards, each and everyone one of them devoted to a different pairing of fictional characters. Okay, I'm being a complete fandom nerd, but if you're into any of these fandoms, these pinboards are so nerdy they're cool.
There's a board devoted exclusively to one of my all-time favorite fictional couples, Wizard Howl Jenkins and Sophie Hatter from Diana Wynn-Jones' Howl's Moving Castle (and the Studio Ghibli film of the same name).
There's a board for the innocent friendship between Lucy Pevensie and Mr. Tumnus the faun in The Lion, The Witch and the Wardrobe.
Isabelle has a few different Hunger Games fandom boards. Of course, there's Peeta and Katniss. There's also the Haymitch-Effie Trinket board, and one for the bittersweet romance of Finnick and Annie.
Finnick & Annie Board
Harry Potter pairings? Oh, yes - many. Albus Dumbledore/Gellert Grindelwald, Harry/Ginny, James/Lily, Severus/Lily, Sirius/Remus, Teddy Lupin/Victoire Weasley.
This happens to be Ron and Hermione.
Similarly, there are several boards for various pairings of Lord of the Rings and The Hobbit characters. I liked the movies, but I never read the books, so I don't consider myself a big LOTR fan.
Some of the fictional characters aren't from books, of course. Here's my personal favorite, the Rinch (Reese-Finch) pairing from Person of Interest.
Other TV shows represented include both the BBC Sherlock and Elementary, as well as Hannibal, Supernatural, Teen Wolf, Hawaii 5-0...the list goes on and on.
Oh, and if comic book characters are your thing, you're in luck. There are several Avengers pairings, from Clintasha to Thorki. If you're more DC than Marvel, you might enjoy the Bruce Wayne/Selina Kyle board.
Movies, anime, video games, Disney and Studio Ghibli movies, beloved books and comic books - Isabelle has a lot of the common and more unusual pairings from fan fiction. Check her out. It's my new favorite thing on Pinterest.
