For many fans of scripted television, half the fun of tuning in each week is to measure the progress of your One True Pairing: That one couple, or would-be couple, bumbling their way towards a happy union despite all of the plot-wrenches thrown in their way. Whether they're an actual couple like Pretty Little Liars' Hanna and Caleb or one brought to life mainly on Tumblr, such as Supernatural's Dean Winchester and his bestie Castiel, these pairings feel real to us...even though they're complete fiction.

Our Fan Choice Awards' Best Couple category is all about the 'ship.

Love bad romance? Maybe you're drawn to American Horror Story: Hotel's bloodthirsty, gorgeous and poly-amorous couple Donovan and The Countess.


The Vampire Diaries' Stefan and Caroline are a much kinder, way more emo vamp couple — or, whatever they are currently; it's hard to tell with the various pregnancy dramas currently getting in their way. But as Stefan told his possible true love, "You and I have had more history in the last five years than most people have in a lifetime."



Ooooolicity. Arrow's Oliver Queen and Felicity Smoak kill it on the crime-fighting front, but it took them three seasons to get it together in the love department. Now that they're all shacked up and making omelettes, do Queen and Smoak still light your fire?


Perhaps you hold out hope that Pretty Little Liars' Emily Fields will find love with Alison DiLaurentis, despite several false starts and the fact that Alison is married to a man in the impending series jump-ahead. Don't rule anything out on PLL, right?

ABC Family


Can anyone but Cookie handle Empire's Lucious Lyon's crazy life? To say they've had their ups and downs is an understatement, but they always find their way back to each other. They share a mutual love — and a love for the music biz and general shadiness.



Awkward's Matty and Jenna have put their fans through the wringer over four seasons, and things got pretty messy on the road to their confessions of love. But now they'll stay together through college and the rest of their life....right!?!?



While a faction of Teen Wolf's audience is still prays that Stiles and Lydia are an endgame couple, Stiles and Malia are just about the cutest human-on-werecoyote couple ever. They hit a rough patch this season, but true fans won't count them out just yet.



How to Get Away With Murder's Connor Walsh can be conniving when he wants something – in fact, that's kind of how he and Oliver met. Connor developed feelings for the goodhearted Oliver despite his initial ulterior motives, and despite career and health issues they're adorable together.
