We all love to have our favorite ships be endgame, right? But can we talk about how shitty it is when that doesn’t happen? Like seriously, it makes me so bitter that no matter how much time passes I’ll always be bitching about it. And I’m not talking about when one of them dies and it breaks our hearts in a thousand pieces… It’s more of a they picked the wrong person, how could they?
I read this series soooo long ago, and I’m still bitter about the fact that Lena ended up with Alex. I mean, it wasn’t really a surprise but I still hoped she would pick Julian. I didn’t really enjoy the trilogy all that much so I just blocked everything out of my mind, but that still bothers me.
02. The Secret Circle (the books, not the show).
There was a time in my life where I was so obsessed with The Secret Circle (TV show) that when it was cancelled I lost my shit. So as any rational human being, I went deep into everything related to it, and that’s when I decided to start the book series. Honestly best decision I’ve ever made, because it’s honestly so good? And also very different from the show, I love both so much, but in different ways.
In the books, I rooted for Nick and Cassie so hard. They’re perfect for each other and you can’t tell me otherwise after the last book where Nick —not perfect Adam— loved Cassie enough to break away from the ghosts.
I know people just don’t care for this series, but oh well, I’m still not over it.
Okay so this is another not that popular series that I loved. And also left me bitter af.
Here we have four guys who are kept as experiments to this scientist, and other than him they basically only interact with his daughter Anna. We have brooding bad boy Nick, fun-loving and easy-going Cas, Anna’s best friend and sweetheart Trev, and lastly, we have Sam who is suppose to be the shit, the perfect guy that Anna has had a crush on since always.
Now Anna and Nick’s love/hate relationship is amazing and how their relationship develops is so on point. When I was reading the second book I was so sure they would be endgame by the way things were progressing and how they were spending so much time together. Talk about a bucked of cold water thrown at you when she actually ends up with Sam.
This sucks because for one the story is amazing and could’ve reached another level if the author didn’t go with the obvious and expected choice of pairing up Anna and Sam at the end. Nick and Anna had a past together as kids that was erased from their memory, they were actually pretty close, and seriously how perfect would this be? Also Nick is the only one of the boys that Anna can’t control. TALK ABOUT OTP GOALS.
04. The Grisha Trilogy.
This is probably the one that frustrated me the most. I mean, I love Leigh Bardugo’s writing and her stories are great. But will I ever be over the fact that queen Alina ended up with fucking Mal? Nope. Never.
Look you can say whatever you want to be like “they have always been friends and blah blah blah” but that’s not going to change my mind because a) Mal never saw Alina that way until people started paying attention to her, b) he doesn’t support who she really is and always makes her feel bad for it, and c) he’s just a trash character altogether who doesn’t deserve my sweet child Alina.
Although I dislike Mal, I don’t mean that she should’ve ended up with The Darkling either. Would I have loved that? Oh, yes, yes I would. But I do see the problematic side of it and even though it’s a guilty pleasure of mine, I understand how that would be fucked up —but just putting out there that The Darkling saw Alina as an equal, didn’t want her to pretend to be someone she wasn’t and loved her for who she really was.
I really think Alina should’ve ended up with Nikolai, they aren’t exactly my otp from the series, but they could’ve been amazing together and honestly anything is better than Mal.
05. Harry Potter.
Oh yes, I’m one of the Harmony shippers out there. Look, I don’t hate Ron or am particularly mad at this like I am with the other ones. But I still wish Harry and Hermione ended up together, it would’ve been perfect and you can’t tell me otherwise, even J.K. thinks so, so there’s that.
Bonus: TV shows OTPs.
Lucas and Maya (Girl Meets World), I CAN’T EVEN WITH THIS.
Hyke and Jackie (That 70’s Show), don’t get me started on this couple. They literally invented hate to love relationship and I’m not okay.
Tim and Lyla (Friday Night Lights), is anyone out there over it? I doubt it. I’ll die bitter about this fantastic relationship not being endgame.
Seth and Kate (From Dusk Till Dawn), I’m too weak for them, sorry.
Clay and Shelby (Quantico), ugh why am I weak for problematic and fucked up relationships? I DON’T KNOW.
Nate and Serena (Gossip Girl), SERIOUSLY THOUGH, WHAT THE FUCK? Not over it.
Rory and Logan (Gilmore Girls), I suffered for this for way too long and the revival wasn’t exactly what I had in mind. I do love Jess and Rory as well.
Klaus and Caroline (The Vampire Diaries)*, they’re my favorite tv show pairing of all time, easily. Let’s see how things go in this last season of The Originals, I’m keeping my expectations very low though.
Buffy and Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)*, I’m actually still following the development through the comics, but in the tv show they weren’t endgame, so I’ll always be bitter about it.
* OTPs that still has a chance of ending up together, but probably won’t.
What about you guys? Any OTP that broke your heart by not being endgame?
