nike: TV Tropes = Well, there goes your day. (TV Tropes)
So, I decided to take a break from all of the games on my phone because they were literally eating up all of my free time and then almost immediately created a Tumblr account (I'm nkvictory, btw) because that seems to be where the fandom for my latest obsession is hanging out.

And, well, can I just say how much I love these dorks?

I have an OTP. I have never had a true OTP before. The closest is usually along the lines of "Yeah, I think this couple works best," which isn't the same as the whole "I need these two to be together forever RIGHT NOW!" I'm currently feeling. I didn't think I could feel that way. And over a het pairing, no less!

I usually don't like het pairings because I can't stand the dynamics most people use. The few I have liked were battle couples (or battle groups in the cases of the ones I tend to prefer poly groupings for) because they're more likely to be equals. This one is definitely a battle couple, even if they're still working out the 'couple' part, with her just as likely if not more to rescue him as he does her. That helps. As does that it's so sweetly innocent that I could write the characters as hetero-romantic aseuxals and not have to change a thing. And the fact he's the Disney princess of the pair. Literally. Not only is this show being distributed internationally by Disney, but the creators have compared him to a Disney princess and have had the character do things like actually swoon.

It might also help that I find the love square hilarious. You see, these two adorkable idiots are madly in love with each other and not only haven't figured it out yet, they've managed to combine their civilian and superhero identities into an incredibly tangled love square. It takes special talent to pull off what normally takes four people with just two.

Most of all, I love that they've been set up as a legitimate example of what a good and healthy relationship is supposed to look like in a series whose main themes are abuse and consent.

Cutting here to spare the uninterested from my fangirl squeeing and rambling. )
