Romance Fails in Fiction Tag

Happy Valentine’s, everyone!

Two days late. Because I had no time. My bad. I hope you had a nice book to love, or a person, or a pup, whichever you like best! And since you’re here, why not keep celebrating  by talking about all the tragic romance fails in fiction?? such a terrible idea, who left me in charge of this

Thank you to Sophie @Blame Chocolate for tagging me! She’s awesome, you should definitely visit her and give her all the chocolate.

The Rules:

  • Please PINGBACK to me at Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities. Or just Kate. And PINGBACK TO A SPECIFIC POST OF MINE.  I won’t see the post otherwise, and I’d like to see it.
  • You can choose ten romance fails from ANY media you like: books, movies, anime, manga, T.V shows, or Webtoons. You can even mix them up if you want.
  • You can choose funny fails or serious ones; for the serious ones, phrase it humorously. Remember, this is a fun tag! It’s not meant to be serious.
  • Mention who’s who in the fails. (I.E, who fails and who is the recipient of the failure). If there isn’t  recipient, per se, just state the couple (or non-couple).
  • Optional: Rank the failures from least extreme to most extreme.
  • 5 failures at LEAST.
  • Tag as many people as you want, but at least one person.

There are some big spoilers coming, so keep that in mind if you plan on reading/watching any of these:

~ The 100 (season 2) ~ Glass Sword ~ The Arrow (season 4) ~ Crown of Midnight ~ Red Queen ~ When We First Met ~ The Death Cure ~ Game of Lives ~

Finn and Clarke

Finn’s death is more tragic than A.L.I.E.’s nuclear apocalypse. Yes, that’s an absurd thing to say. Yes, I said it anyway.

Shade and Farley

It was all nice and good until Shade teleported out of everyone’s lives.

Felicity and Oliver

I’m not caught up with this show, so I don’t know if they get back together… But they should never have broken up in the first place, okay??

Chaol and Celaena

stolen slice of cake by Deesney


They were so great. Until that whole mess happened and she tried to kill him.

Maven and Mare

Red Queen by MargaHG


WHYYYY???? 😭 Yeah, that’s all I have to say.

Noah and Avery

Image result for when we first met noah and avery

This guy keeps going back in time to make his best friend fall in love with him, and always fails. It’s so sad. In a funny, ridiculous way.

Teresa and Thomas

All the betrayals and lies, and when they finally make up, she dies?? This is not okay.

Michael and Sarah

She basically disintegrates and he has to code her back to life, but we never find out if he pulls it off? Normal relationship stuff.

No pressure to do it 😉

Let's talk!

Do your ships usually sink? And do you wish any of these couples had made it??

  1. Hahahah “who left me in charge of this?” 😂 That… That would be me… YAY TO FAILED ROMANCES 😄😄😄
    Argh yes! Thomas and Teresa, what the hell was that??? I have no idea why they started hating on each other and putting distance between them. Honestly, it just felt like the author was bored and needed a new flavour of the week.
    Which brings me to Chaol and Celaena. That was SO a ploy to get her together with Rowan and no one can tell me otherwise. That whole fight made NO SENSE. It was like Maas decided: “oh yeah you know what, Rowan is hotter. Let’s get her with Rowan.” Ugh, NO.
    About Clarke and Finn, I didn’t actually mind because that’s one step closer to Bellarke 😂
    Great post! Thanks for doing this ❤️

    1. YES I BLAME IT ALL ON YOU 😂 Thanks for the fun tag ❤😄
      And I know, right??? I so wanted them to stop fooling around and be normal again 😢(though I have to admit, the end of Fever Code does make things look a bit different… 😅). And Rowan!! I liked him better as Celaena’s friend… Maybe he’ll grow on me, but how could she suddenly hate Chaol so much?? 😧
      That’s true 😂 I wonder if they’ll ever get together 🤔


      1. YES, THANK YOU!!
        I don’t know, the whole series became so weird super fast… By the end I was completely eh about it.
        YES, Rowan and Celaena as bffs was great! I loved their friendship and have no idea where the hell the whole romance thing came from. They have zero chemistry! And her reasons for hating Chaol all of a sudden are stupid af. Just Maas trying to force them together, really.
        I sure hope they will! I don’t know if you’ve read the books but if you did, then you know why there’s hope here 😉

        1. There was nothing between them at all until she left for Adarlan. I guess she wanted to add “I can’t live without you” to Rowan’s reasons for following her… 😝🙄
          I haven’t read theeem! I need to do that 😅
