Thus became the unpublished spin-off series that developed in my imagination and daydreams. I researched my pairing in popular fan-fiction websites as well as Google searching to see if anyone else in the fan fiction writing community had similar inspiration. I only saw a few mash up pictures, a YouTube video that mashed up the Lynda Carter and Matt Salinger roles, and quite a number of cosplay pictures. This unique pairing would only have to come from the fan fiction community - as both characters are owned by rival publishing companies.
Captain America and Wonder Woman.
I've studied relationships for a very long time and have arrived through my own thesis have come to several observations on the dynamics of real functioning relationships. Granted that this blog is about a proposed fictional fantasy relationship, it still needs to function under the same guidelines as real-world relationships.
There are several aspects of this featured relationship that I think could make Captain America and Wonder Woman successful fictional exploration.
- Opposites attract. It's good for some couples to have similar world views and perspectives, but for other people, finding a mate in which traits and personalities conflict, can be an attractive connection that completes two people - making them whole. This is not to be confused with co-dependency. Offering a different context helps many couples.
- Physical attractiveness. There is not an exact science to what chemicals in the human brain or body causes people to be attractive. But it is a key ingredient to any relationship.
- Common goals/directives. Failed relationships find that peoples lives grow apart from one another. So, it is wise that long-term monogamous relationships function on the belief that the couple aims for similar aspirational achievements.
- Shared Experiences and Teamwork. Couples need to grow together in harmony along with their own individual growth. A great way to grow as a couple, people must share the "workload" and exemplify a teamwork strategy of partnership.
