Couples You Dislike #251 ~ If this is true love, we'd rather be trapped in a life without it.

► No bashing real life people or other shippers
► No baiting and no defending
► NEW RULE: No individual character bashing


Clarification of Rule #3:

If you're listing a couple you dislike such as character/character - and then you write about them and why you don't like them, it's okay to include your dislike for a specific character....but not ONLY that character. Your post should not consist solely of character hate. If you're covering up specific character hate unrelated to what that character does within his or her ship, you'll be asked to edit your post.

"Character/Life", "Character/Existence" and variations thereupon are simply not allowed.

Thanks for the new thread! From the last one:

I still cannot believe this happened. Cutting your best friend out of the middle, then moving your picture in closer with her boyfriend's. LOL, you can't make this stuff up. So creepy.
OMG I forgot about that

I still don't get why Mark did that to his golden couple. He loved Peyton and instead of making her more relatable he made her be obsessive to the point of creepy

Bringing this over from the previous thread:

Yes, the very idea of E/E as a romantic pairing is cringeworthy to the core. I always perceived them as some kind of father/daughter relationship. Plus they only made ONE deal so that he won't hurt her friends and family, they worked together, THAT'S IT. I don't see any connection of the sort between them. The very thought just makes me wanna hurl.

And Jake/Nessie are all the adjectives combined: creepy, disturbing, unapropriate, and I just found myself saying "WTF bro!" when I found out about them. He used to have strong romantic feelings for her mom, and suddenly he's maddly in love with her new born child?! Just, ICK. Breaking Dawn should be banned seriously. How Meyer's editors allowed **** like this to be published is just beyond me.

Ceffy are as far from an epic romance as can be, lol. They used each other emotionally and physically. Effy only slept with him 'cause she hated herself, and Cook only screwed her in order to stake a claim on her. Not to mention that he never cared one bit about hurting her, like for example insulting her in front of JJ and Freddie, and disrespecting her several times by persuing other girls (Pandora and Naomi). They're just ridiculously FAKE. Nothing about them is epic or romantic.

B/Ju and B/L are so similar it's hilarious. Brooke turns into a shell of herself when she's with both guys. She becomes whiny, insecure and needy everytime Julian or Lucas interact with another girl (i.e. Peyton and Alex). We're supposed to perceive it as some sort of angst, but it just makes Brooke take several step backs as a character. And at the end of the day I just feel sorry for both Peyton and Alex.

D/E are also one of my biggest shipper disapointments to date. They could've been phenomenal had the writers taked into account the growth that these two made in S1/2, instead of giving the show lazy ass plot lines in order to make Damon look like a Saint regardless of the several mistakes that he made and make his romance with Elena seem somewhat "legit". Same with Naomily, who had such a beautiful developement in S3 before they tainted it with meaningless cheating that seems like an infamous pattern for Skins couples. I hate it when writers take such a cheap route with their shows because they're too lazy to come up with rational ideas for their plotlines. What's up with television these days? This is getting scary.

WORD on H/G and J/P, especially the latter. H/G sucks for obvious and numerous reasons but you hit the nail in the coffin by adressing Peyton's depression. It was one of the most interesting SLs they could've given Peyton, but they trew it under the rug as soon as Jake was here to save the day. Now that Brucas are the golden couple, why not stick Peyton with Jake to distract her from Lucas and cure one of the most difficult moments of her life. Nevermind that J/P are based on completely shallow reasons, like her craving for a family so much that she wants to play house with Jake and his daughter Jenny for several weeks cooped up in her house.

OMG, it's perfect Agreed with literally every word here.

I don't get the Elena/Elijah and Klaus/Caroline idea of romance at all, because as much as interesting Elijah and Klaus can be as characters, they are villians and they should stay that way. Elijah rips people's hearts without remorse, Klaus killed Caroline friend's aunt, was willing to let her die if her mom hadn't made a deal with him and the overall idea of her being able to love him is hypocritical taking that she dumped Tyler for being sired to Klaus. These guys could have killed those girls in a blink of an eye. Elijah and Elena made that one deal out of practically selfish reasons on both sides and Elijah broke this deal for same selfish reasons which greatly shows how much he cares about Elena. He was willing to kill all her family had she not freaking STABBED herself for heaven's sake. They are not romance and never should be. I like their scenes and I like some aspects of their relationship, but it is nothing like a basis for romantic relationship, the very thought of it makes me feel uncomfortable.

Jacob/Nessie gotta be the creepiest thing ever, and the worst "Couple" to ever disgrace the world of fiction It makes me sick to think that he could imprint on a newborn baby after being into this baby's mom. I don't know what Meyer was smoking when coming up with that and I don't know how could that be published under the Young Adult label. It is worse than Harry/Ginny and Rose/Dimitri combined.

Ceffy are definitely the opposite of epic Those contrived love declarations from Cook sound like a cheap boy bandy song especially taking that he never backed them up by actions. For the whole season 3 he only had sex with Effy and seduced other girls behind her back, including her best friend, and didn't even feel guilty about it at all, nor did he care about Effy's insecurities and true feelings as long as he was hurting his best friend who loved him so much. The season 4 comes and Cook beats up random by passers just because he cannot handle FE kisses? Sorry, writers, but if that's an epic romance then Meyer is Shakespear


BL and BJu are so laughable because writers tried to make them seem different yet they are practically the same. In both relationships Brooke turned into a whiny, insecure, bitchy person because of a guy and all her growth as a character is being almost undone. Writers try to pass those insecurities and her whining as angst but it is far from it, it only shows the horribly dysfunctional nature of both of those relationships. Mark tried to add a "villian" to both stories aka Peyton and Alex, but the truth was that I ended up sympathing with those girls instead of Brooke, because Brooke literally lost her mind and every sense of decency when she got involved with Lucas or Julian. And I wonder where did BL even come from in S2? Lucas suddenly had an amnesia and forgot that for the whole season 1 it was Peyton he wanted to be with and his relationship with Brooke fell apart because of it, not because Brooke was the one he really wanted and he "badly screwed up things with her"

Damon/Elena could have been amazing had writers actually addressed their issues and worked through them instead of coming up with the most ridiculous SL ever and turning Damon into the new Stefan by making Stefan bad They had all the chances to grow and Elena could have developed feelings for Damon slowly and naturally while he would have been on his way of redemption yet Damon's bad acts were brushed under the rug and Elena was turned into an idiot who settles to whichever brother is available.

With Naomi/Emily it was just stupid, but predictable taking that Skins love ruining good things by contrived SL's such as cheating and then pass it for the only bad thing that can happen to your relationship and apparently you can overcome it without even talking about it, it is enough if one of you states that he/she loved you since 12. Or develops an ability to run like a dog like in Thomas/Pandora case.

ITA! Jake/Peyton in season 2 was the epitome of shallow writing. Peyton's depression was one of a few interesting SL's in season 2, Hilarie did a great job with it, it was believable and relatable but then Jake comes back as the knight in shining armor and her depression magically goes away? Really, Mark? I suffer depression for years and I sure as hell know it does not go away because a guy you like comes back to town.Peyton spends the whole season 2 playing into a happy family with Jake because she wanted a happy and full family herself, while Lucas and Brooke are a supposed golden couple and Peyton shouldn't interrupt their happiness that's why writers decided to put her with Jake and almost completely erase her issues and her personal dramas.

You can't say I didn't warn you. The stupidity of what Damon & Carlton tried to pull with that final season - - just epic, epic failure. It's mindblowing, how they really seemed to believe that it was actually quality storytelling. That their purgatory gotcha! was a good thing. That Jack and Kate could ever have been a healthy relationship.

And the pitiful writing...good grief, the writing!!!

Keamy. What? He's already dead? Eh...die again, scumbag.

Jin/Sun's poor daughter. Fetus for eternity.

Des/Penny. Charlie? What? They had a son? Eh...they'll never miss him.

Aaron. Poor kid. Newborn for eternity.

Sayid/Shannon. Nadia? Nadia who?

Locke. Helen? Helen who?

Hurley/Libby and Charlie/Claire. They were sweet enough during their 10 minute relationships, but the most important people in each others' lives? WTF?

Jack/Kate. Sure. She missed being shouted at and mistrusted by him so much that it took her being up to her elbows in blood & guts before she could even remember him. Just as he luuuuurvvvved her so much that he found/married/raised a child with Juliet, and couldn't even spark on Kate until he rubbed on a freaking coffin. Blood, guts, coffins & death = Jack/Kate. Morbidity at it's finest.

Sawyer/Juliet. The Dumb & Dumber LaFleurs Amnesiac Tour Of the Afterlife. Why did Juliet die? Who cares, CANDY BARS FOR EVERYONE, YAYZ!

Wow. Sometimes it really hits you all over again. The level of pure, unfiltered stupid, and how it burns.

Caroline/Klaus - because I get the impression that the writers only wanted to create a media hype and an omg-moment (Klaus healing Caroline) and in the process really messed up the Tyler/Caroline relationship that never got the chance to get out of the honey-moon-phase.
other reasons have already been mentioned: Klaus turning into a whiny teenager, Caroline turning into a hypocrite, too many similarities to the D/E storyline, Caroline ending up alone (because Klaus will eventually get killed and her friends would turn their back on her).

Alaric/Meredith - did they really want us to like this "couple"?

Dan/Serena - they were great in season 1, but now it's just sad to see Serena pine over Dan.

all time "favorites":
Annie/Liam
Naomi/cowboy dude
ivy/photographer dude - thanx show, for destroying Raj/Ivy!
ryan/annie's mum

They changed all three characters for de. They removed Stefan as well as getting rid of his humanity and making him the 'bad bother'. They tried to make Damon a Stefan 2.0 because that's the only way Elena tolerates him. And they turned Elena into a Katherine 2.0, using and manipulating Damon and bouncing from one brother to the other when she feels like it. Not to mention they completely swept all of the **** Damons done under the rug like it never happened, and Elena seems to have no morals or self respect left.

Klaus/Caroline Basically what everyone's said about them. My problem with it is how much of a hypocrite Caroline will turn into if she starts falling for Klaus. Tyler was her boyfriend, he loved her and fought for his free will for her, and she broke up with him because of his sire bond to Klaus. Now I'm not a Forwood shipper, but if Caroline gets with Klaus then I think Tyler will deserve so much better. Not to mention the fact that the writers basically have to recton Klaus to make him into as Spike from BTVS would say "a big fluffy puppy with bad teeth" to fall in love with Caroline who's basically sunshine personified. I dont get this couple. At all.

Epic declared from the pilot as soulmates forever couples
Buffy/Angel
Edward/Bella
Stefan/Elena
Scott/Allison

Basically these four are everything I hate about media and TV. They're romance fantasied and none of them are realistic at all.

Klaus/Caroline make absolutely no sense, whatsoever. Caroline broke up with Tyler because he was sired to Klaus. If that's the only reason they're not together, then the second Caroline even thinks about getting involved with Klaus, she should go straight to Tyler and either a) get back with him or b) apologise profusely to him. I'm not even a Forwood shipper, but anything else just wouldn't make sense. Because NOTHING ABOUT THIS COUPLE MAKES SENSE.

I was wary about the idea of Klaus/Caroline because I almost always hate the "bad boy/villain falls for good girl" storyline. It's cliched and overdone and almost always results in the guy repeatedly hurting the girl yet she keeps on forgiving him to the point that the relationship appears abusive (ala Damon/Elena, Spike/Buffy). But K/C aren't even that. Instead, Klaus's character gets completely nuked and immediately transforms into some pony-painting teenager that is completely irreconcilable with the character we knew. If Klaus was hurting Caroline then at least he'd be in character.

Brilliant! The stupidity of Lost never fails to amaze me and make me want to throttle someone. That show was the biggest waste of time I love Skate but for me it's not even worth the rest of the crap I had to go through/take over the years.

I'm hoping I don't have to watch any more scenes between the Evil Queen and the Huntsman, it hurts my heart. I still have hope that because he's alive in the fairytale world that we will see Graham again.

Emma and August is already making me cringe and nothing has really happened yet. I hope Emma keeps turning him down. (And I don't like that they've styled him so similarly to Graham, and I realize how childish that is to say.) Emma and August have no chemistry and August is smarmy. I hate smarmy guys, the ones that are just convinced they can talk a girl onto her back Ick. Please please keep him away from Emma.

MM/D is such a disappointment to me. They started off so sweetly and I'm completely enchanted by their fairytale counterparts But a cheating storyline? Great way to put me off a couple. It's not a life or death situation, there's nothing majorly life-changing happening that justifies the indecision and dishonesty, it's just two people without spines. At least Mary Margaret has called it all off. David, however, is a jerk. I guess that's supposed to ironic or something: "if this was a fairytale he'd be a prince but it's the real world so he's a spineless douchebag."

Bo/Dyson - They'd work better as friendly-people-that-could-be-friends. Dyson lies to Bo, Bo and Dyson sneak around like teenagers, Bo exploits her nature to get laid, Dyson exploits her nature to get laid, they have no chemistry and are so so boring it makes me want to cry just having to watch them but I don't because even that would require I expend more energy on these two than I care to.
