Best Fantasy/Sci-Fi Couples To Date

Lyndsay Moir

To once again celebrate the famed month of loved, I thought I would compile a list of my favourite all time geek couples. Couples that have had me weeping in their saddest moments, and rooting for them to finally make it work when everything else seems against them.
