My Favorite BrOTP’s

The Reader Diaries is a discussion feature in which I rant, unleash my inner psycho fangirl, and discuss bookish topics. Todays topic was inspired by Snuggly Oranges fantastic post on Ship-Defining Quotes

Untitled1

Unlike OTP’s (my favorite word in the universe) BrOTP’s are those that you ship together as best friends and who are destined to remain that way forever and for the rest of eternity. In many cases they could be considered “frenemies”

Mary // Catherine from Reign

There is so much relationship development with these two. They’ve gone from Catherine trying to kill Mary multiple times to two queens on the same team who know what its like to rule in a world where men hold all the power. When they work together the result is often hilarious, compelling, and entertaining. Easily the best most complex dynamic on the show.

IGNITEME

Juliette // Kenji from Shatter Me

This relationship gives me the feels just thinking about it. Kenji truly saved the Shatter Me books from being overtaken by the dramatic (yet entertaining) love triangle. He offered some much needed comedic relief and the friendship between him and Juliette is beautiful. He calls her out on her shit and gives it to her straight no matter how hard the truth might be.

“Kenji snorts.“That’s because you’re not fragile,” Kenji says. “If anything, everyone needs to protect themselves from you. You’re like a freaking beast,” he says. Then adds, “I mean, you know—like, a cute beast. A little beast that tears shit up and breaks the earth and sucks the life out of people.”

Rose // Christian from Vampire Academy

Rose and Christian from Vampire Academy are just so amusing to read about! They’re complete opposites and are the perfect example of a relationship that goes from clear hostility to respect and eventually friendship.

“You know, if you weren’t so psychotic, you’d be fun to hang out with. Same to you, creep.”

 

MARADYER

Mara // Jamie from The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer

Another hilarious yet heartwarming friendship. These two make for one of the most humorous most witty pair of partners in crime I have ever read about.

I planted a kamikaze kiss on Jamie’s cheek.
“FUCK,” he shouted, wiping it off. “What if you killed me!” He threw a Skittle at my face. It hit my forehead.
“Ow!”
“Taste the rainbow bitch.”

Meredith // Christina from Grey’s Anatomy

One of the many reasons why Grey’s Anatomy has kept me hooked for over ten seasons. This friendship is absolutely amazing. Their scenes together always made me crack up or sob quietly in the corner. Now that Christina left the show Grey’s is not the same, nor will it ever be.

HEIROFFIRECelaena // Rowan from Heir of Fire

THESE TWO. My babies. My orignally-hated-each-other-and-then-slowly-flourished-to-become-the-most-beautiful-relationship-I’ve-read-about babies. Their relationship is not romantic (YET!) but its more intimate than one between lovers. Rowan undeniably understands her, he accepts her, he listens, he calls her ‘fire heart,’ knows her entire story, and ugh they’re perfect for one another okay? I apologize for the fangirling.

 

ORIGINALSKlaus // Rebekah from The Originals

Much like Mary and Catherine from Reign (CW am I seeing a trend here?) Klaus and Rebekah have an extremely complex relationship, a result of a thousand years together. They’ve killed each other, betrayed one another, hurt each other in the worst way possible, but its obvious that theres love between these two even though it might be a bit messy.

    OMG YES MARY AND CATHERINE ARE MY ABSOLUTE FAVOR5ITEEEEEEEEE. And Celaena and Rowan. Don’t even get me started on those two. I SHIP THEM >_> AND NOT IN A FRIENDLY ONLY WAY. But god yes. They’re so much closer than just lovers and I don’t know if I love the fact that they don’t act on the chemistry between them or hate it.

      ARENT THEY AMAZING?? I live for their scenes on Reign. As for Celaena and Rowan I SHIP THEM SOOOOOOO HARD. On one hand I love the fact that for once theres an intimate relationship between a guy and a girl without it being romantic. BUT SCREW IT I WANT THEM TOGETHER. And if they ever act on their chemistry.. *hyperventilates* that scene is going to be explosive and crazy and I’m freaking out just thinking about it

    Ah, I love this so much! Mary and Catherine, yes! I’ve only seen half of season one because I dropped it around the mid-season finale when all that happened to poor Bash. I shipped them *sobs* But this also reminds me of the Catherine / Henry pair, I thought that one episode when they worked together to cover up that body was hilarious!

    Juliette and Kenji are a great pair of friends as well, I love how supportive he always was of her. It’s funny because I wasn’t too fond of Rose and Christian in the books but the movie really brought out the excellent dynamic they had together, loved the jokes!

    I haven’t really read The Unbecoming of Mara Dyer or have seen Grey’s Anatomy (crazy, I know!) but I really want to.

    DON’T GET ME STARTED ON ROWAN AND CELAENA ASDFGHJKL. I ship it so hard. I feel like even if you didn’t ship them together you have to admit they have a freaking amazing dynamic, like you mentioned. BUT CAN YOU IMAGINE THEM ACTUALLY TOGETHER? Unstoppable. It must become canon!

    I’m loving The Originals right now too. I like Klaus with everyone because he’s such an interesting character with so much depth.

    Fun post :)

      OMMMGG YASSS That episode when Henry/Catherine worked together was one of my favorite ones ever. It was just so hilarious and entertaining 😀 One of the main reasons I loved Juliette/Kenji was because he told her the truth, no matter how hard it was. I completely agree with you on Rose/Christian dynamic being wonderfully highlighted in the move.

      AND YEES ROWAN AND CALAENA ARE ADJNSAJKDBAJBD I ship it SO hard. Them together would be absolutely crazy, they would be unstoppable and totally badass. AND THINK OF THE SCENE WHEN THEY ACTUALLY GET TOGETHER. WHEN THEY GIVE INTO THEIR AMAZING CHEMISTRY AND ACKNOWLEDGE THE FEELINGS THEY’VE BEEN HARBORING SINCE THEY MET AND JUST LET ONE ANOTHER IN COMPLETELY AND MAKE SOME LOVE CONFESSION THAT WILL BECOME THE NEW SLOGAN OF THE THRONE OF GLASS FANGIRLS CLUB. *criiiies ugly tears*

    YESSSS, Celaena and Rowan are the BEST. They are my babies and I shall love them to whatever end. Can’t wait to see where their relationship goes in the next books (hopefully romance? You really can’t top their relationship :) )!
