Impossible Love Original_9.12

“That Boy (/Girl) is a Monster”

Sydney & Adrian, The Bloodlines Series vs. Eros & Orion, Only Everything

Sydney & Adrian: Your classic star-crossed lovers belong to two radically opposed factions of supernatural society. They break countless rules and disregard countless stigmas in an inspiring pursuit of love. –PLL Trendsetter Reut

Eros & Orion, Only Everything—This fledgling goddess of love and her mortal boyfriend were separated by Zeus—and what Zeus says goes. To win him back, Eros has to brave the mortal world and match up three couples without her powers. –PLL Trendsetter Emily R.

Clara & Tucker, The Unearthly trilogy vs. Meghan & Price Ash, The Iron Fey series

Clara & Tucker, The Unearthly trilogy: Clara is part angel, Tucker is “just” a Wyoming cowboy. When they first meet, no one expects sparks to fly, especially not with that dyed orange hair Clara is rocking. But the course of true love never did run smooth, and things only get harder with the involvement of Christian, who Clara is meant to save, not to mention the dark forces coming their way. –PLL Trendsetter Reut

Meghan Chase & Prince Ash, The Iron Fey Series: What love barrier is bigger than the difference between being a human and being a faerie? Initially, this stark difference keeps Prince Ash away from Meghan, but not even the cold ice prince can help himself from his heart warming toward Meghan. Together, they fight against the powers trying to destroy the world of faerie, and while many events and people threaten their relationship, nothing can keep them apart. –PLL Trendsetter Caitlin

Tessa & Will, The Infernal Devices vs. Clary & Jace, The Mortal Instruments

Tessa & Will, The Infernal Devices: these two have to battle with the fact that warlocks and Shadowhunters are not allowed to be together. Add in the fact that Tessa is about to marry Will’s best friend, and you have some complications. –PLL Trendsetter Alexandra

Clary & Jace, The Mortal Instruments: they thought they were related for a good while and the dark forces of the earth (led by Clary’s father who was also the man that raised Jace and Clary’s brother) were looking to use and destroy them, and yet they decided to not totally give up on each other. Come to find out – THEY ARE NOT RELATED!! (yay!) and they persevere through the evil around them and end up happily together. (I mean, yeah it was a weird journey but it was so worth it and it all worked out in the end.) –PLL Trendsetter Corinne

Bella & Edward, Twilight series vs. Annabeth & Percy, Percy Jackson & The Olympians series

Bella & Edward, Twilight: Come on, let’s face it – they overcame A LOT to be together, and though many people love to hate this couple, I think it’s really sweet how dedicated Edward was (now Bella on the other hand…). –PLL Trendsetter Bre

Annabeth & Percy, Percy Jackson and the Olympians and The Heroes of Olympus: These two have literally been through hell and back for a future together. Oh, not to mention Percy’s memory getting erased and the impending apocalypse. –PLL Trendsetter Julianna

“Haters Gonna Hate (Hate, Hate, Hate, Hate)”

Eleanor & Park, Eleanor & Park, vs. Deryn & Aleksandar, The Leviathan

Eleanor & Park, Eleanor & Park: Eleanor and Park meet through unlikely circumstances, and are able to withstand the social injustices of their time, including domestic abuse, child abuse, racism, bullying and body image. Their love is not an overglorified puppy love, but a love that truly shows agape.  –PLL Trendsetter Michelle

Deryn & Aleksandar, The Leviathan: Deryn and Aleksander meet on an airship during the brink of WWI. Deryn’s peasant status and Alek’s royal one would have made their love impossible, had it not been for the war. They both make immense sacrifices and disrupt social order, to fight for what is right. –PLL Trendsetter Michelle

Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy, Pride & Prejudice vs. Reena & Sawyer, How to Love

Elizabeth & Mr. Darcy, Pride & Prejudice: Well this lovely couple had to overcome pride and prejudice. (Imagine that!) The differences between their social standings deterred their love for each other throughout most of the book. The pride they have in themselves and the prejudice their families have for each other trapped them in an endless cycle until they both put it all aside and realized that they were actually perfect for one another. –PLL Trendsetter Corrine
Reena & Sawyer, How To Love: Three years ago, Reena and Sawyer fell madly in love under the hot, bright Florida sun. But then Sawyer leaves her, without a trace. He leaves behind Reena, and their daughter, Hannah. Now, Sawyer, characteristically, appears out of nowhere. Can Reena and Sawyer patch their relationship, or will it remain in shreds? –PLL Trendsetter Amy

Hector & Elisa, Bitter Kingdom vs. Craig & Noelle, It’s Kind of A Funny Story

Hector & Elisa, Bitter Kingdom: Bitter Kingdom — Despite incredible odds, different social status, magical blizzards, missed chances, and a civil war, Hector and Elisa continue to fight for each other for all the right reasons: true love.  –PLL Trendsetter Kate H. 

Craig & Noelle, It’s Kind of a Funny Story: Craig and Noelle meet at a psychiatric hospital, and are able to confide in each other, about their mentally destructive pasts and help each other find a way out of their unfortunate mental situation. They are more than just a teenage couple, but are also a deep, understanding, complicated friendship with intense loyalty and camaraderie. –PLL Trendsetter Michelle

Kartik & Gemma, A Great and Terrible Beauty vs. Isla & Josh, Isla and the Happily Ever After 

Kartik & Gemma, A Great and Terrible Beauty: Kartik is ordered to stop Gemma from fulfilling her destiny as a witch but he can’t stop himself from wanting her. A brooding young man with a history of ancient secrets, we’re never quite sure of Kartik’s motives…will he kill Gemma, or will he fall in love with her? Their society doesn’t want them to be together, but love conquers even opposing destinies!  –PLL Michelle M.

Isla & Josh, Isla and The Happily Ever After: Isla and Josh have a beautiful, perfect, artistic, international love, but Isla is her own worst enemy and must overcome her own insecurities for their love to last. –PLL Trendsetter Kate H.
