22 love stories better than Twilight

Everyone loves a good love story, and rom-coms must be the most heavily made movies of all time, and there have been some incredible love stories in our time. But I think it's safe to say that some of them just aren't up to scratch - I'm looking at you, Twilight. 

After the extreme success as my previous post, 22 fictional deaths I'll never get over, I thought it was about time I did another one!

Now, before you go mad at me I have seen and read Twilight, so I do actually know what I am saying! Don't get me wrong, they aren't awful films or books (mostly), but that "love" story is shocking. I won't go in to the whole thing, but it is just awful. 

There are so many better love stories out there, so here are 22 of them!


1. Ellie and Carl | "UP"

 Ellie and Carl have the ultimate love story, I don't think anything beats this. Their love story doesn't even have any words all throughout it yet it can reduce even a grown man to tears. This has to top the list for pure brilliance.

2. Snape and Lily | "Harry Potter"

 There is one word I need to say to sum this up - always.

3. Romeo and Juliet | "Romeo and Juliet"

  Romeo and Juliet cannot be denied as an awesome love story. Both of them die, but it still beats Twilight - at least they were both alive at some point.

4. The Cookie Monster and Cookies | "Sesame Street"

 No one loves cookies more than the Cookie Monster. Even Edward and Bella can't beat this soul mate pairing, and one party is a food.

5. Ross and Rachel | "Friends"

  Ross and Rachel had a better love story even when they were on a break!

6. Emmet and awesome | "The LEGO Movie"

 Emmet loves awesome more than the Twilight Emmett loves Rosalie. I don't think stupid shiny vampire Emmett would pay $46 for a coffee for Roaslie now, would he?

7. Kermit the Frog and Miss Piggy | "The Muppets"

 Kermit and Miss Piggy's wedding day didn't end with a killer vampire baby...

8. Gnomeo and Juliet | "Gnomeo and Juliet"

 A rip off of the traditional Romeo and Juliet is still better than Twilight...and they're freaking gnomes!

9. Hazel and Gus | "The Fault in Our Stars"

 There aren't words to describe the love story here. Okay? Okay.

10. Katniss and Peeta | "The Hunger Games"

 The whole thing was fake at the start, yet it was still better and cuter than vampire love. They managed to survive the Hunger Games too, try that one sparkly vampire!

11. Hermione and Ron | "Harry Potter"

 They might be the most predictable, yet wrong relationship during Harry Potter, but I still prefer it to Edward and Bella. I mean, they were friends for years and didn't meet over the fact that she dropped an apple in the school canteen.

12. Captain Jack Sparrow and rum | "Pirates of the Caribbean"

 Yup, still better than Twilight.

13. Drogo and Daenerys | "Game of Thrones"

 Oh gosh, I love this one. The moon and the stars, not a spider monkey.

14. ET and home | "ET the Extra-Terrestrial"

 ET wants to go home to escape the ridiculousness of the Twilight love story. I don't blame you, dude. 

15. Rocky and Ginger | "Chicken Run"

 Animated chickens learning to fly > badly CGI'd vampires.

16. Carrie and Big | "Sex and the City"

 The biggest "will they, won't they" couple of Sex and the City is so much better than Twilight. He even jilted her and I prefer it to that weird garden wedding scene.

17. Edward and Vivian | "Pretty Woman"

 He picked her up off the side of the road, she was a prostitute. He was a pale person who couldn't go out in the sun, and she was a terribly grumpy bitch. I know which one is better. Do you?

18. Harry and Ginny | "Harry Potter"

 Harry and Ginny's first kiss was significantly less awkward and cringy than Edward and Bella's whole 4 movie relationship crusade.

19. Gollum and the ring | "The Lord of the Rings"

 Gollum adores the ring so much that he would die for it. Edward tried to kill himself because he is a crying little bitch. Even Carlisle couldn't revive the awfulness of Bella and Edward's relation-shit.

20. Ron and Lavender | "Harry Potter"

 Their whole relationship was because of a love potion yet it still worked better than a vampire and a human.

21. Kristoff and Anna | "Frozen"

 Well aren't they unbelievably cute?! He saved her life completely selflessly, and she is a Princess. Need I say more? No.

22. Homer and Marge | "The Simpsons"

 The ultimate TV power couple makes Edward and Bella seem like a silly schoolgirl crush. Oh, wait....

BONUS. Draco and Hermione | "Harry Potter"

 This isn't even a real thing! It doesn't exist! Yet their fictional relationship within a fictional relationship is just completely flawless.
