Pop-Culture Characters Who Would Make Perfect Couples

When you’re as obsessed with pop culture as we are, you can’t help wondering what would happen if some of your favorite characters could break out of the confines of their individual universes and get to connect. Not that this doesn’t occasionally happen, but it’s not often enough to stop us predicting things like which TV characters would be friends in real life (or literary characters, for that matter). Our latest musing along these lines took us into more romantic territory, as we started to imagine which far-flung pop-culture characters were practically made for each other. In fact, some of them were so obvious, we’re amazed we didn’t make the (love) connection before. Join us as we play matchmaker for everyone from Harry Potter to Sookie Stackhouse, and then let us know what you think the chances are for these star-crossed couples in the comments.

(Note: We realize that some of these characters ended up married or in relationships with other people, so for the sake of this discussion, we’re focusing on their single days.)

Harry Potter and Sabrina the Teenage Witch

Sure, they inhabit vastly different worlds, but Harry Potter and Sabrina Spellman also have a whole lot in common. Both grew up ignorant of their magical powers — Harry discovered his at 11, Sabrina at 16 — both start out with a whole lot to learn, and both have responsibilities thrust on them that they’d rather deny at first. Frankly, we think Sabrina could do Harry a whole lot of good by exposing him to the sillier side of the wizarding world — and we’re also pretty certain she could become quite a bad-ass in Harry’s realm, if it came down to it.
