#T5W: Favorite M/M couples (+ mini rant?)

Top Five Wednesday is a book meme that Lainey started and I discovered through the lovely Samantha‘s videos. If you’re interested you can join the goodreads group to get the topics for each week.

This week’s topic:

February 7th: Favorite M/M Couples 
–Who are your favorite dudes loving other dudes? (Note: this isn’t specifically cis gay couples, but also applies to couples that include bi men, trans men, pan men, ace men, etc.)

OMG YAY I love this week’s topic and the next (F/F couples)! Also I want to mention that I’m only going to talk about couples that are canon because as much as I like making up headcanons for my fandoms, I don’t believe in queerbaiting my followers and I want to give canon queer couples the space they rightfully deserve!

So since these are all couples that become canon within the book/series/anime, be careful of spoilers if you don’t want to find out who ends up with whom!!!

  • 🌈 Damen and Laurent from Captive Prince: listen, if you know me you better have bet at least €50 on me mentioning D&L at the top of my list otherwise I’m gonna be very disappointed in you. THEIR LOVE IS SO STRONG!!! NO SCRATCH THAT! THEY INVENTED LOVE!!!!
  • 🏳️‍🌈 Victor and Yuuri from Yuri!!! On Ice260px-yuri_on_ice_hug_or_kiss hey nobody said this had to be strictly about books right..? I can’t not make a post about favorite M/M couples without mentioning Victuuri. Yuri On Ice still owns my ass after more than a year and I owe it more that I can ever begin to explain.
  • 🌈 Andrew and Neil from The Foxhole Court: oooohhhhhh boy ohh boy. It’s been one year since I’ve reread TFC and I seriously need to read it again because I can’t possibly have read my second favorite series only twice. All three books make me Feel Things and I miss the Foxes a lot. And Andreil are just so *clenches fist* theY’RE IN LOVE!!!
  • 🏳️‍🌈 Ben and Severin from The Darkest Part of the Forest: aaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh I actually don’t talk about them as much as I should? My problem is that the fandom isn’t really big but even though I never RT fanart and such (because there’s like, none), just thinking about them makes my heart explode.
  • 🌈 Patroclus and Achilles from The Song of Achilles: *bursts into tears* it’s still too soon and it’s been more than a year since I’ve read them.

Honorable mentions:

🏳️‍🌈 Pynch!!!

🌈 Snowbaz!!!

Also I know this is probably not the right type of post to discuss this but I do what I want so here is your friendly reminder that if you ship M/M couples you better also support LGBTQIAP rights in every form and shape in real life, like, you know, when it comes to actual, real queer people, and I better not catch you calling gay sex sinful and be generally gross about M/M couples. Thanks for coming to my TED talk and if you feel yourself called out, GOOD, now please go google how to not be a shitty human to queer people and come back to this blog when you’re ready to stop fetishizing queer people.

  5. This is awesome!!!! I have been wanting to watch Yuri On Ice for SOOOOO LONG. I really need to get on this!!! I also love your mini-rant at the end and I 100% agree with you. I hate when people are love m/m or f/f couples but then like “oh no, I don’t believe they should get married”. Like…no!! You can’t ship someone but then at the sometime not give two shits about their happiness or their human rights…argh, now I will start ranting haha. Anyway, great post!!

    1. EXACTLY omg I get so mad when I see people “supporting lgbtq+ rights” and really what they mean is they support cis gay males having hot sex but only if they can read about it. And god forbid a guy is bisexual because literally these people “don’t want to read about him having sex with a woman” (I’m 100% serious this was on Twitter last week) LIKE I SEE YOU FETISHIZER.
      I’m especially worried for next week’s topic because I just KNOW people are gonna try to justify why they don’t read F/F (which is valid until a point) but I can’t wait to unfollow people who “don’t read it because it’s gross” 🙃
      Oh oops I ranted again but 🙃🙃🙃 I have feelings about all this
      Anyway please go watch Yuri on ice!!! It’s ground(ice?)breaking for an anime and it gave the queer community much more than any other series ever did ❤

      1. I still to this day, cannot believe that people discriminate because of someone’s sexual preference. Like, it actually astounds me that people bother themselves so much about it. To me, if a person is happy, that’s all that matters. It also saddens me that there are those within the LGBTQIAP that discriminate against others in the community…we should all be allies, not fighting against each other! Omg I just keep ranting…SORRY!!! I rant a lot, because I really love ranting hahaha.
        But yes, I will definitely watch Yuri, it is something that I need in my life I just know it. Thank you for ranting with me!!!

  6. I knew you would say 4 of these ships lmao and thank you for not queer baiting!!! I’ve seen a couple posts that have head canon ships and I’m kind of annoyed???? Like why chose head canons where there are so many actual canon m/m relationships out there ????



      1. Yeah same I’m annoyed too to see headcanons! Like those are 100% valid but the post doesn’t say “mm ships” it says couples!!
        Also yes please read the darkest part of the forest you’ll love it 💞
