I got the idea to write about this from Tina because we were talking about the types of pairings in the fandoms we don’t like or just don’t support. This kind of ties into the wider topic of fandom fanfics which I still need to do on this blog. I will get to that side of things eventually – I have faith lol but for now, lets talk pairings.
For anyone that isn’t aware of what OTP means it stands for “One True Pairing” and is kind of the ultimate pairing you support in any given fandom. In Star Wars here are some examples of OTPs that fans have supported over the years and/or still do:
REYLO AND BENREY
This one is kinda obvious which is why it makes the list. Thousands upon thousands of fans all over the world support this pairing in the SWCU and rightly so, they made it canon 😅
This hopefully, doesn’t need explanation and it’s SUPER big on Tumblr so yeah, if you want to see more, that is where you should go 😬
Finn and Poe together as a couple wasn’t only a fan thing. Oscar Isaac apparently approached Disney about the possibility of these two having a relationship and Disney was like “uh no”. What does that say about Disney? Food for thought my friends, food for thought. Here’s a snippet of an interview where Oscar talks about asking Disney to make Stormpilot a thing:
There are others but the ones I’ve mentioned above are the biggest in the fandom so far. Let me know if you have any others that should have made it on this list or any other fandom pairings you enjoy or support?
As always hit me up in the comments because that’s where I live 😁
