I did this for the Kim Possible forums, and I figured I might as well do it here. I woke up way too early today, so I did a good bit of number crunching to compare as many main ships as possible, not just the 'who gets Katara' aspect. I tried to look at all characters who were involved in at least 2% of the category's romance stories, so if your favorite character isn't listed, that's why.

What did I learn? Well, as a whole, you guys like the bad boy. While Zuko isn't the most paired character (that would be Katara), he's the most popular love target of three characters (Katara, Mai, and surprisingly, Jet) and the second-most popular love target for two others (Sokka and Ty Lee). Also as a whole, you guys hate canon. Of the nine characters I looked at, five of them have a canon romantic partner (Katara & Aang, Zuko & Mai, and Sokka [with Suki, who missed the 2% threshold]). Only two of those characters are most-paired with their canon love (Mai and Aang), and neither of them top their lovers' lists.

Please note that the numbers listed below count only stories sorted under that character's name. For example, if a story is listed as "Romance, Aang & Katara" but also names Sokka/Toph and Ty Lee/Azula in the description, it's counted only as a Aang & Katara story. Also note that in each character's list, "Other" includes stories where that character is paired with a character not on my list as well as stories where that character is paired with no one. A "Romance, Zuko & Iroh" story as well as a "Romance, Zuko" story both count as "Other."
