Wayhaught, Wynonna Earp
We’re still crying over the writing when it comes to Wynonna Earp‘s Waverly and Nicole. And it’s not because it was bad. We’re still crying over how amazing their development was, the honest & heartfelt sex scene we got between a same sex couple in 2020, and their subsequent engagement in season four. Wayhaught is what OTP goals are all about and we can’t wait to see more of them!
Peraltiago, Brooklyn 99
This was the most domestic year for Jake and Amy, who ended the last season of Brooklyn 99 as new parents. And yet, from going through work stuff together, to deciding to start a family, to fertility issues, to just being each other’s backup, in everything, these two continue to prove that the Moonlighting Curse is nothing but a myth. Happy couples aren’t boring, not if you have a good writing staff. And yes, there are storylines to be found for a couple without the constant will-they/won’t-they.
Ana and Yessika, Gentefied
My favorite part of seeing these two on my screen was how normal it was for these two to be on my screen. Ana and Yessika just were, and as a latina, that was a balm upon my soul. And it wasn’t just because they were pushed to the background, either. No, they had issues, with each other and outside of the relationships, and they just go to exist as normal people – with the good and bad that entails. And I am rooting for them, I really, really am.
Shirbert, Anne with an E
I will probably never get over how much we were cheated out of with Anne with an E, especially knowing what was coming next for Anne and Gilbert. They were literally just getting started, and they already loved each other so much – we already loved them so much, that I will forever be bitter we didn’t get to see the life they were going to build together, the obstacles they were going to face, again, together. This is one of those all-time ships, and the show did such a good job of building up their love story that there’s no way to make a list like this without them.
Stellaride, Chicago Fire
I came back to Chicago Fire for other reasons, but I stayed for Stella Kidd, and later, for her relationship with Severide, a character I had a hard time loving in the first few seasons. Maybe what I needed – what he needed – was for Stella to come into his life. Because this is a different Severide, and a different show, because of her, and because of the loving, supportive relationship of these two, a relationship that is at the center of everything the show has done right in the past few years.
I’d swear Vagrant Queen’s Amida was on this list, am I just imagining things?
I think you might be thinking of this list: https://fangirlish.com/2020/12/21/our-top-lgbtq-couples-of-2020/!
Was literally just on my way over to say that, and delete the comment LOL
