28 Fictional Couples That Should Have Ended Up Together

With added polls for your pleasure.

We asked the BuzzFeed Community to tell us which fictional couples should have ended up together. Here are the results.

Note: We only chose couples from shows and movies that, as far as we know, have concluded. 🚨Spoilers ahead!🚨

1. Jack and Rose (Titanic)

Paramount Pictures

"Why couldn’t Rose get on the lifeboat? Then, when Jack landed in the water he could have been on the floating wood, and then they could've found each other after!"

shelbys4801a11f0

"A true tragedy."

    Nah, Jack's death was necessary.

2. Robin and Barney (How I Met Your Mother)

CBS

"He respected her and loved her for who she was and even gave up the idea of having his own kids to be with her. Meanwhile, Ted told her that she needed to be less independent because 'some guys like to feel needed' and made her give up her dogs because he was jealous that she dated guys before him."

milkteapapi

"The last few seasons highlighting the ups and downs of Barney and Robin's relationship felt so right. They grew into each other and made the other their priority. Their divorce wasn't fleshed out enough and went back on all of their character development."

lisah4f7be2850

"It’s been almost five years and I’m still pissed about the finale."

3. Katniss and Gale (The Hunger Games)

Lionsgate

"They were perfect for each other, goddangit!"

edynwebbz

"The fact Katniss ended up with Peeta and not Gale REALLY annoys me."

chloem4350bba95

"She should not have ended up with Peeta, she did not love him as he loved her."

4. Shawn and Angela (Boy Meets World)

Buena Vista Television

"They had shared interests and connected over similar issues with their families. Even though they had difficulty confronting their feelings for each other, they understood one another better than anyone else ever could. All hope was lost after their storyline concluded in Girl Meets World, and I will forever be sad that they didn’t end up together!"

5. Beca and Chloe (Pitch Perfect)

Universal Pictures

"They are repeatedly put in 'will they/won’t they' situations and are used for queer baiting."

leot4bde01e65

"Even Anna Kendrick and Brittany Snow shipped them!"

6. Buffy and Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)

WB

"They loved each other more than anything or anyone and how their romance ended was heartbreaking. I still think they're the greatest couple ever."

bruce9752

"He was obviously still in love with her and vice versa, judging on the amount of times they showed up to save one another. I’m sure there was SOME spell that’s like a condom, but instead of preventing STDs and pregnancy, it prevents him from turning into a murderous beast."

7. Phoebe and Joey (Friends)

NBC

"Although I love Mike, Joey and Phoebe should have gotten together and I'm still a little sad they never really did."

kateflowerhome

"I know they weren't actually a couple, but they should have been! They had a special connection and just got each other. Matt LeBlanc and Lisa Kudrow even pitched to the show's execs an idea that they had been sleeping together the whole time. How perfect would that have been?"

8. Rachel and Joey (Friends)

NBC

"The buildup to their brief relationship was fantastic, but then they killed it by deciding it was awkward. It didn't have to be, writers! Ross is the worst and deserved to be alone."

c452f9e68c

"Ross was whiny, selfish, and SO insecure! Joey and Rachel had such a sweet connection."

kayleeb4390f5879

"God, I hate Ross."

9. Elio and Oliver (Call Me by Your Name)

Sony Pictures Classics

"Their relationship was so raw and real, but on the other hand, the reason the story resonated so deeply with me was because it was about losing your first love."

CW

"Despite everything the world threw at them, they trusted each other and their love knew no boundaries. They brought out the best versions of each other and would sacrifice everything for one another. They are the most beautiful love story and deserved so much better." —carolync4178cbdc3

Disney

"I know what actually happened to Pocahontas was terrible, but I felt that in the Disney fictional story she should have ended up with John Smith."

bradford97

"Disney, you shat on history in the first one, why couldn’t you have done that in the second one? John Rolfe was the most boring basic white boi."

CW

"They were such good friends their whole lives and he loved her from the start. He treated her better than anyone ever did and they were the cutest together. Dan, on the other hand, basically tried to destroy them. What a creepy jerk to do that to your 'friends' and the woman you supposedly 'love'."

mollyslays

"No one played love better than Alyson Hannigan on that show, and she lost so much and I wanted her to be truly happy. I wept."

NBC

"They had such good chemistry, and not in an annoying 'will they/won’t they' way. Watching them flirt and crush on each other reminded me of every random infatuation I had in college."

redtoenails

"1. Sexual tension since season one. 2. Katara was the first to believe that Zuko could be good. 3. Zuko helped her get closure after her mother’s death. 4. He confided in her about his mother’s disappearance and his guilt over betraying his uncle. 5. HE ALMOST DIED SAVING HER FROM HIS SISTER. Enough said."

jsws17

"The writers even said that originally they were suppose to end up together. It would have been perfection."

"Their chemistry was sizzling and I loved watching how their characters grew and actually formed a deep connection over the course of the series. All their scenes together were fire."

rachelj43312bbe2

"He was flawed and evil, that's true, but Bill was so much worse! At least Eric truly cared about Sookie, and they really did love each other. And in the end she doesn't end up with either of them, only to marry some guy we never met."
