the pairings meme, day 2

Day 02 - What was your very first ship?

This is the first two-for-the-price-of-one day. There will be others.

Probably Marius/Cosette from the musical version of Les Miserables, which is really weird because Eponine was far and away my favorite character. It just never occurred to me to question that Marius/Cosette was the OTP, and I loved Cosette too. To be more precise, most likely I wanted to be Cosette, and I was completely infatuated with Eponine. Her unrequited love just made her more desirably tragic to my seven-year-old-self. Really, I loved Les Miserables a lot when I was in elementary school, before I could understand half of it, and that included the pairings.

Yes, I did read the book. Sort of. I skipped huge chunks of Victor Hugo's meandering, but I read the plot-relevant bits. I may have been ten at the time.

If you want to go even earlier, there's Aurora/Prince Phillip from Disney's Sleeping Beauty, but since my investment in that was mostly "squee Aurora!" I'm not sure if it counts. I did later (much, much later) look up Perrault's version of the story and find Sleeping Beauty's meeting with the Prince utterly charming in that version (no, that was not one of the versions with rape, thankfully), so I guess I still ship some variant of that.
