Well, since I have seen a lot of this tag around I thought I could do it myself, because it looks like fun. Cordy from Any Merry Little Thought made it, and I'll be making it today.
Ivanhoe and Rebecca: Name a couple that should have been together.
I don't think Ivanhoe and Rebecca should have ended up together(that is, from what I can remember from the movie we saw a very long time ago, I didn't think they should've ended up together), by the way. But to the answer. I agree with Olivia that Rory and Jess should have ended up together, she's absolutely right about that one, but I will choose a different answer than hers.
Jo and Laurie: Name a couple that should have stayed friends...or did stay friends...
Jane and Mr Rochester: Name a couple that looked like the chances of a happily ever after were next to none!
Uhm...I'm trying to do couples that no one did yet, so this is quite hard. Maybe Lorelai&Luke from Gilmore Girls? Because they certainly had a rough path to their happily ever after. There was Max and there was Rachel, there was Christopher and Nicole, and Alex and Jason and then Christopher again and then there was this problem called ''Anna Nardini'' and her daughter April(who I liked, by the way, but she was a problem for L&L's relationship) and then again Christopher. And then in ''A Year in the Life'' there was this problem with Richards death and them hiding from eachother again. So yeah, they really had a lot of problems and it was only at the very last that they had their happily ever after.
Jane and Mr Bingley: Name a couple that is just sooo happy!
Kit and Ella: Name your favourite fairytale couple
Molly Gibson and Roger Hamley: Name a couple where the woman is basically ignored by the suitor until the end of the story (frustration at its finest!! :P :P)
Sarah and Jacob Witting: Name a couple that found love later in life
Oh man. Miss Matty and Thomas Holbrook are taken, and also Mrs Hughes and Mr Carson. I think...
Don Lockwood and Kathy Seldon: Name a couple from a musical
Uhm...musicals, musicals...Newsies is chosen, and so are The Sound of Music and Singin' in the Rain is above mentioned, so, I guess Truly Scrumptious and Caractus Potts then, from Chitty Chitty Bang Bang. I can't think of anyone else but them, don't know a lot of musicals.
Anne and Gilbert: Name a couple that didn't start out on the right foot
Faramir and Eowyn: Name a couple with the sweetest love story
As Hasan and Marguerite are already chosen, and Robin and Marian also, I will say
That was the end! I am not sure if you can tag anyone, so I won't. You can just do it if you want to, like I did. Consider yourself tagged by me, if you want to. (And I really mean that, you know :D)
And at last, a gif of Robin and Marian, because they just have to be in here.

Nr 1: Carter
...I wanted him to stay in the show, I liked him. He saved every member of the outlaws even though he was going against his king, did everything Robin Hood said him to do without hesitating whether or not it was too dangerous. And the sheriff killed him and we didn't even see a proper funeral. Just a grave with his shield on it. Okay, let's face it; the death of Marian was sad enough, I didn't need another reason for crying, but I would've liked him to have a decent funeral where we can see the gang actually say goodbye to him, however sad that would have been. I wish he hadn't died.
Nr 2: Legrand
Okay, maybe I shouldn't have done that, because I am the one tearing up here. My own fault. *trying to laugh it away, but miserably failing*
Nr 3: Queen Eleanor of Aquitaine
She's the mother of king Richard and prince John. And yeah, I didn't like her. Actually, I found it a bit weird. You know, Little John carrying her, and ''big bear''. Although I laughed at the end of the episode when the gang teased Little John with that nickname, because they were all happy and careless for a moment. But I didn't like the queen. I...I don't know, I found her a bit exaggerating(if that makes any sense). I just didn't like her.
Nr 4: Meg
|Ignore Isabella on the right for a moment|
Nr 5: Eve
Nr 6: Count Friedrich
Nr 7 and 8:
Nr 9: Roy
Nr 10: Devina
And her I didn't like, of course. She was the only one who the sheriff cared for, but she died. And then the sheriff wanted to get Robin, dead or alive. While it wasn't even really his fault that she died, it was her own. She moved and the snake bit. I was happy she wasn't on the show anymore.
That was all. I have the feeling that I just forgot someone, but anyway...that was the end. It was nice to talk about Robin Hood BBC again, it was far too long ago!

Anyhow, that's not the right way to do it, but I am very undecisive about when to begin and when to stop and to be honest; a few of those so-called ''snippets'' were just pieces from a beginning story. Today, I'm gonna change that *proudly raises head*. Today, I'm really gonna do snippets, and with that I mean that my snippets will be réál snippets, and no long-never-ending-short-stories. (Of course they're not never-ending, that's just a matter of speaking to be more dramatic) (Uh-hum, get to the point already, girl) Yeah, yeah, alright, don't worry, I'll start.
|Okay, so this picture is not very relatable to the snippet, just a bit related.|
'I'm alright.' I whispered, unable to speak louder, my voice would betray how I really felt.
'It will be fine, Edison,' Chip said with soft voice. I didn't move, a conversation was not what I wanted now. 'I'm not saying that everything will be perfect after this, that éverything is gonna be fine. I can't keep a promise like that. But it will work.' He was silent for a while. 'I get that you don't want to talk right now, Edison, and that's okay. But if you need someone to talk to, then...then I'm here for you. Whenever you're ready.' He squeezed my hand and raised from the bed. A second later the door opened and closed again.
'I'm sorry for the way I behaved, Eric,' He said, clearing his throat. 'I was rude and ungrateful and dumb. I'm sorry.'
'It's okay,' I turned his cap around teasingly, the way I always greated him when we were younger. 'I'm just glad you are back on track again.'
'Yeah...' He laughed briefly. 'Thanks for not giving me up.'
'That's where you have friends for,' I put my arm around his shoulder. 'Hey, you think we can go a little further? I heard Sally's had a new menu.'
'Let's go and cheer the place up a bit, shall we?'
'I have been in this house my entire life and I'm not about to leave it.' She would say with her trembling, but resolute, voice if we dared bringing up the subject. I was glad she stayed. With no friends, I could use some company when dad left for business. Which happened a lot lately, and the meetings didn't really turn out for the good.
'Why not?' She said. 'There is no soul who would notice that we were here. Don't be such a wimp. You have to take challenges in life, you have to dare things.'
'Just because you were dared to come here, doesn't mean I have to.'
'I told you you would withdraw, but you wanted to come with me.' Jess stepped closer to the old barn and tapped the wall with her hand.
'I couldn't let you go alone.' I shivered. This whole environment gave me the chills. Bare trees, everywhere dry leaves on the ground that crackled if you stepped on them, gray sky. The hayloft door fell to the ground, the rest was slowly sagging with an eerie cracking sound. This place was called bewitched for a reason. Suddenly the barndoors swung open and an old woman, skinny as a thin branch that would fall with one gust of wind, came out. Her face was pale, and the bones in her body stood out sharply, which made her look like a ghost. She shook her hand, holding a pitchfork, and screamed unintelligible words to us. Jess and I screamed even louder than she did and ran away, our feet hit the ground in the same rythm as our heartbeats. We ran far far away from that haunted house as soon as possible.
'Never...' I bent forward and leaned on my knees, still panting, and looked at Jess who was leaning forward a bit with her hands in her side, trying to catch her breath. '...ever, ever, take on a dare like that again. Next time, just choose ''truth'', not ''dare''.'
'Rya, put off that sweater. It is far too hot for sweaters.' Moms voice reached my ears, and a few seconds later she came into my sight together with dad, who was carrying Marty. Even though Marty was already five, he still had to be carried if we went somewhere.
'Yes, mom.' However, I didn't do it. In a while.
'Well, you're still wearing it.' She remarked.
'I'll put it off later.' I stroke a lock of my hear behind my ears. I actually had to pin it up in a bun or something, it was hot in my neck and on my back. Nora and Nick ran up the stairs, giggling, and Nora tagged me.
'I won!' She shouted, her face all red, as always when she was warm.
'That's not fair!' Nick answered irritated. He was red too, but not as red as Nora. Nobody was as red as Nora. Although Nicks hair was wet from the sweat already. 'You pushed me.'
'No, I didn't.' Lloyd and Raquel now came up the stairs, followed by Rebeccah. 'Becky, hurry up!' Nora jumped up and down. 'You're far too slow. As slow as a turtle.' She glanced at mom and quickly added: 'That was a joke.' Rebeccah tried to stay in the shadow, wisely, and had her vest tied around her waist with the sleeves.
'Traveling dreamers we are,' Lloyd said, with an eye on the sea. 'Traveling with our camper around the world.'
She laughed. 'There's no way out of this. Not anymore. You're done playing heroic and sacrificing gentleman.'
'Playing?' I raised my hands in the air and glanced over my shoulder. Where was Giulio with his promised ''army''? He said he wouldn't let me down again. Was he going to betray me like he did before? Leave me alone?
'You thought I'd believe your little show?' She snorted, with a tone of contempt. 'I can see right through your lies, mister.'
'Just...put down the sword, okay?' I looked at the sword pointed at me, which was held firm and not even a little trembling, and behind my back again.
'Jev!' Giulio came running towards me, with several armed men with him. 'Are you okay? What did she say? Where did she go?'
'She's...' I stopped when I saw the place where she was standing a minute ago before Giulio stormed in. Empty. 'She was right here.'
'Gone again!' Giulio stabbed his sword in the sand between the tiles, an angry look in his eyes. 'How does she do that? Disappear every time?'
'I don't know.' I stared down the hall. Nothing.
'That woman is extremely dangerous. We have to find her.'
'Good luck.' I said, watching them run away. Actually, the one who was in danger, was me. She knew me and my past. My mask was about to be ripped off my face, in figure of speaking, and even though the reason why I decided to help the people of Erenia had changed from selfless and for my one good only to really helping, they wouldn't trust me anymore when they knew about who I was. I had to find her. Immediately, and without people around me.
'Let's do this.' Mike expressed the thought first and held out his hand. We put our hands on his.
'Together.' Rafael said.
'Together.' We all agreed and broke up, each pair in different directions. Mike with Cedric, Rafael with Gale, Allen with me.
