Beyond Good and Evil. Beyond Ever Afters. The tale of Sophie and Agatha comes to a dramatic conclusion. Prepare yourself for the End of Ends.

 

The first test was passed.

 

Excalibur pulled from the stone.

 

A new king named.

 

But two claim the crown.

 

The sword returns to the stone, 

 

for only one is the true king.

 

Who?

 

The future I have seen has many possibilities…

 

So by my will, none shall be crowned until the Tournament is complete.

 

The Tournament of Kings.

 

Three trials.

 

Three answers to find.

 

A race to the finish.

 

My last coronation test.

 

Excalibur will crown the winner and take the loser's head.

 

The first test is coming. Prepare . . .

 

—King Arthur

The world might be a strange, scary place at the moment, but thankfully we have books to keep us company -- and the reliable treasure trove that is YA Book Central!

For today's post, I thought we'd have a little fun. THE SCHOOL FOR GOOD & EVIL is notorious for it's very intense relationships -- i.e. "ships," as fantoms call them -- and there's quite a few opinions as to which of the ships in my series are Good or Evil. So I thought I'd look back at some of my own favorite series and mention my TOP 5 BAD SHIPS that should have happened… and didn't. 

  1. DRACO AND HERMIONE (Harry Potter)

Hermione is very bossy, and given her love for Ron, she seems to appreciate boys who need a bit of fixing-upping. So I couldn't help imagine her with Draco, who might grow wonders in the company of the brutally honest, openly communicative, and hyper-intelligent pride of Gryffindor. That is, of course, assuming Draco would have anything to add to the relationship himself. But despite his Slytherin nature, Draco always seemed more sensitive and vulnerable than he let on, the kind of boy who just needed a friend willing to accept his flaws before he could learn to accept them himself. 

  1. EDWARD CULLEN AND JACOB BLACK (Twilight)

For all its earnest seriousness, Twilight is so pulpy and fun that it's mind-boggling to me that Edward and Jacob didn't have their own moment. True, they are ice and fire and mortal nemeses. But come on, think of all the things they have in common -- obsessive tendencies, violent tempers, a penchant for the melodramatic… Put the two of them in a room and watch the fireworks (and fur!) fly. 

  1. KATNISS EVERDEEN AND FINNICK ODAIR (Hunger Games)

There was something deeply combustible and unpredictable about Finnick that always rattled Katniss. Not just because he's so smooth and handsome, but because he's a hawkishly intelligent survivor, just like her. Both of them are prisoners in Panem, both of them stripped of their free will. Imagine what a potent team they'd make…

  1. SIMON SPIER AND MARTIN ADDISON (Simon and the Homo Sapiens Agenda)

Yes, yes, I know Martin is terrible for blackmailing Simon and he has very little that's redeeming about him… and yet, I still have a soft spot for him. And when I have a soft spot for a character, I end up constructing alternative narratives, like one where Martin's preoccupation with Simon's friend Abby isn't about Abby at all, but about getting closer to Simon… and Simon's good nature would lead to him forgive Martin and bring out the best in him, the kind of couple forged in the fire of misunderstanding and reconciliation… Then again, I write books about villains with hearts of gold and heroes who turn out to be rancid. 

  1. PETER KAVINSKY AND PETER KAVINSKY (To All the Boys I've Loved Before)

Because who could ever make Peter K happier than himself?
