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.

Everything about it felt simpler: a less complicated superhero, more humor and an established love story from the very beginning. This show had none of the Laurel/Felicity/Oliver angst of Arrow. Though it might take a while to get there, it was clear that Barry Allen and Iris West were endgame. Fast-forward to a year and a half later, and I’m forced to eat my words. The Flash might actually be more complicated than Arrow at this point, with time travel, alternate dimensions and two pretty solid ‘ships to choose from. Some…
