I'm 25 with a BA in Comparative Literature (19th c. British & French lit), which I will obviously use to become an opera singer. I hate pretension and people misusing the fabulous thing known as capslock speech.
I ship the following couples (in order of when I got interested): John/Marlena - Days of Our Lives Mulder/Scully - The X-Files Jeff/Hilary - Remember WENN Frasier/Lilith - Cheers Janeway/Chakotay - Star Trek: Voyager Doggett/Reyes - The X-Files John/Elizabeth - Stargate: Atlantis House/Cuddy - House House/Stacy - House Adama/Roslin - Battlestar Galactica
Now let's see how said couples have fared, hm?
John/Marlena - One dead. But, wait — he might be alive again, but — aw, Alice has stopped caring. Mulder/Scully - Probably still together. Yayyy. Jeff/Hilary - Divorced. Frasier/Lilith - Divorced. Janeway/Chakotay - One ended up with someone else. Doggett/Reyes - Might have ended up together. John/Elizabeth - One essentially dead. House/Cuddy - Still up in the air. House/Stacy - She left him, he left her. Adama/Roslin - Ugh. I think I'm cursed.
I love Victorian literature, especially Dickens, and I think monkeys are hilarious. I'd like my life to reflect God being at the center of it, but I don't think it does. I guess I should thus work on that. Makes you think.
