Sci-Fi & Fantasy’s 14 Greatest Romances
1 Aeryn & Crichton
John: “There is no home. There is no wormhole. There’s only you.
Aeryn, anywhere in the universe. You pick the planet.”
It’s hard to figure out who wears the trousers in this particular relationship, so we’ll settle with “both of them”. Despite being different species, it was clear almost from the start that John and Aeryn were made for each other – one glance at their taste for (a) leather outfits and (b) Very Big Guns was enough to give that away.
Their often prickly love affair was just as weird as Farscape itself, surviving everything from multiple John clones (the death of “her” John leaving Aeryn distraught and “our” John baffled as to how to steal her heart away from… well, himself) to eventual parenthood during a deadly battle. Rarely soppy, this was a relationship built on blowing things up together and enjoying every bang – surely the best kind there is.
