Well actually then.
Donna or Kory
Misty or Colleen
Zoey from Nurse Jackie or a tiny kitten
Ok Misty/Colleen, because…like, both are wonderful friendshippy pairings of love and joy but Misty/Colleen have SLIGHTLY MORE STORIES that are literally just about them being in love and saving each other with their love, and they also win on the character front because Donna and Kory are so dear to my heart, yes, but Kory was totally an alien stand-in for a woman of color (I think she’s one of the best, FOR ONCE NOT WHITE-CODED-CULTURE-ENTRENCHED OR WHITE-DEFAULTING examples of this, but she is still an alien with orange skin instead of a member of an actual marginalized group that rarely gets stories told in comics/fiction, especially compared to the made-up group known as ‘hot alien babes’) whereas Misty and Colleen are ACTUAL women of color who have existed for just as long and have been able to be great from their very first appearances. But Donna/Kory has an ongoing cheesiness factor that Misty and Colleen have lacked a bit since the Claremont days, so: MISTY AND COLLEEN GET ON THAT START HAVING MORE CHEESY MOMENTS AGAIN SO YOU CAN KEEP YOUR OTP LEAD!!!!!!
And since both couples are broken up by shitty canon right now neither gets an advantage from that :( Also neither IS canon as much as I want them to be…I still keep my fingers crossed that this will change though NOT EVEN SELF-CONSCIOUS ABOUT THIS IF YOU’RE GONNA BREAK UP MISTY AND DANNY YOU BETTER MAKE MISTY/COLLEEN HAPPEN WTF IS THIS PALADIN SHIT, IF YOU’RE GONNA MAKE DONNA BE DEPRESSED AND CURSING LIKE A TRUCK DRIVER YOU BETTER MAKE IT BE BECAUSE SHE LONGS FOR HER GF WHO IS CURRENTLY OFF PLANET
I’M JUST SAYING
Kory! And Misty! By the TINIEST TINIEST MARGIN, I basically find Kory ~inspirational~ and there’s some real substance to her NTT writing that has never been replicated by anything else I’ve read in DC comics other than like, Cass’s Batgirl run? SERIOUSLY I LOVE KORY SO MUCH SO SO SO SO SO MUCH. So even though Donna is my super POV character who I project homoromantic aceness onto who is a mom to everyone with a heart of gold and pretty hair and pretty costumes, Kory is just…my love for her runs ever so slightly deeper, ok.
And Misty beats Colleen just because she gets the “I have more canon with more stories and more stuff to do” advantage. And because…..she has a bionic arm. With technopathic powers. WHAT CAN I SAY.
zoey beats the tiny kitten
by a large margin I’M SORRY KITTEN BUT YOU JUST CANNOT EVER IN YOUR LIFE BE AS KITTENDORABLE AS ZOEYKINS
