No, I don't do much for Valentines day. Actually, I don't do anything. I might write down a romantic scene for the occasion, and wear a red top, but that's as far as it'll go. And no, I am not against Valentines day - I like the festive occasion, and maybe one day, if it's God's always-perfect-plan for me to have a romantic relationship with a second Mr Knightley, I shall start really celebrating it. But now it's kind of this weird-festive-day we tend to ignore.
But still! I have scrambled up my favourite sweet-romance-scenes for you all to enjoy! I've been wanting to do this for quite some time, and I thought today was the perfect occasion to actually get to it.
I have to say, I planned on ignoring all the Jane Austen romance scenes in the post, because I've talked about these SO many times. But yeah... ignoring THIS Emma-Knightley scene? IMPOSSIBLE IMPOSSIBLE IMPOSSIBLE. I HAD TO DO ZTIS ONE. (Eck, loads of capital letters. Beh, I don't care - it shows you how enthusiastically I am grinning and Knightley and Emma's faces right now.)
Honestly, THESE TWO.
I jest... jest... adore this scene to shatters and letter-by-letter. Her dress, his sweet words, their TENSION.
AHHH. THIS SCENE.
Oh, and Emma and Alex in the adorable Youtube series Emma Approved have sooo many squeeful moments that I can't pin down on one. But this one - the one with the cuuuuute explosion noise - is definitely one of them. And then the way she stares as he leaves the room.... D'AWWWW.
I adore Rose and Atticus as a couple, and their engagement scene in the little private dark hall was so adorable. I personally thought it perhaps a little too hasty, but it was Adorable with a capital A. I absolutely love Atticus, and he and Rose are SO well suited. It's a pity about his father and her mother, though. huh.
Just cuz. Yeah. Mary and Matthew will NEVER get old.
I loved Matty and Ned in Berkerly Square. There were times I wished their relationship went a bit faster (read: a LOT faster) and when I wished they'd forgive each other and so on, but seriously, those two gave me warm fuzzy feels inside. They were adorable.
There was this ridiculously romantic scene on the roof tops too. It was sooo romantic and sooo fuzzy feels-ish. :-) And I lovelovelove the way Ned says, 'Matty.' He says it like this: 'Mah-y.' Yup. These two are sweeeet together. And the silent filled looks they give each other - and when they hold hands in the park. LOVE THAT.
Every Period Drama couple with Dan Stevens as the guy is one of my favourites. Loved these two as Elinor and Edward. Great E's.
The only person who treats Amy Dorrit in the way which she deserves is Arthur Clenham. He's so sweet towards her and caring and gentlemanlike. And it takes SUCH a long time before they are finally reunited, but my word, it's SO worth the wait. The scene where those two hug and openly love each other in the Marshalsea... SO PRICELESS.
I was crying. :-) Cuz I was just soo happy to see those two happy and cuz they're gorgeous.
I can't even tell you how my insides are smiling right now. I love my favourite couples sooo much. :-)
How do you spend Valentines day?
What are some of your favourite couples?
