Simon&Pulse recently held a contest, and they wanted to know your favorite fictional couple, and the winner is?

Oh! And one really interesting thing from the now-closed Pulse Spring Fling contest…

The most popular couple was Bella and Edward, from Stephenie Meyer’s Twilight series. No surprise there. However, the second most popular couple?

Elizabeth Bennett and Fitzwilliam Darcy from Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.

    Good thing they came in first!!!! Cuz if they didnt I would have been mad. But Pride and Prejudice is pretty sweet too!

  2. Twigurl says:

    IIII love the results. though the book of Pride and… bore me to death,
    the movie wasnt bad considering

  3. Twilight Fan UK(Cat) says:

    Thats amazin lol πŸ˜€ but wat a coincidence that a pair of Jane Austens characters should win second place because her characters get mentioned alot throught all of Stephenies books lol. They are Bella’s favourite books too!!!!!!!! πŸ˜€ πŸ˜›

  4. Amanda says:

    lmao thats perfect.
    and predictable.

  5. Janeanne says:

    Funny, cuz Stephenie relates Edward and Bella to Mr. Darcy and Elizabeth in the stories.

  6. Michele Celine says:

    Hah, no surprise there. πŸ˜›

  7. Jasmine says:

    Sweet! but no surprise there obviously! LOL! πŸ˜›

  8. Shteff says:

    Go Pride And Prejudice! I’m sorry, but I adore that book and the movie =]

  9. Tiffany C. says:

    as much as i love edward and bella together…. i love lizzy and darcy more!

  10. Brandi says:

    I am sorry SM and RP but my heart has always belonged to Mr. Darcy (the one played by Colin Firth of course!!!) ::

    :::::::::takes deep breath and lets out a sigh::::::::::

  11. Caitlin says:

    I am really likeing these results!!!! Of course Bell and Edward won. Yay go Pride and Prejudice. That’s another one of my favorite books by Jane Austen and favorite movies. I love the one with Collin Firth but also the one with Kiera Knightley.

  12. Cedar says:

    I sort of wish Edward and Bella hadn’t been in first place.

  13. Cathy says:

    Go P & P!!! I absolutely adore Bella & Edward, but Pride & Prejudice has always been my fave book of all time. Lizzie’s wit is scathing and the interplay between her and Darcy is magical. The Colin Firth movie version is the best.

  14. Dana says:

    no doubt that they were not first

  15. Daniella says:

    absolutely!!! of course πŸ˜€ i couldnt expect more haha

  16. Reema B. says:

    but, Mr. Darcy was way more fickle than Edward. I love Jane Austens writing and I absolutly love that Elizabeth Bennet an Mr. Darcy were second! You gotta love the classics… until you fall asleep. zzzzzZZZZZ. LOL, jk, i never fell asleep reading that.
    Did you know that Mr. Darcy’s first name is Fitzwilliam… hawt. jk
