Battle ‘Ships Never-Lose-Hope Edition: Delena vs. Klaroline!

in Fiction by

Most of the time, I like to root for couples that I know stand a chance at Happily Ever After. Sometimes, I’m bitterly disappointed (don’t even get me started on How I Met Your Mother’s Barney & Robin), but I can usually spot a life-long love a mile away. It’s why I stuck around for the Blair & Chuck drama on Gossip Girl.

And once I’ve fallen for a show, I’m loyal to a fault, watching for years and years, and trusting that the creators are going to consistently deliver an awesome product. Even when they don’t, I tend to stick around, hoping and praying the magic will come back (hello, Nashville). But sometimes there are shows that never seem to bounce back. Shows that get caught up in boring drama, irrational deaths and terrible writing, leaving almost nothing left to love or root for. That’s…
