*SCAM/SAM ART GROUP NOW ON DeviantART! (Founded April 5th, 2013)
Feel free to join if you have an account on DeviantART. I, and other fellow Sam/Scam fans who have joined and are running the group would LOVE to have you all with us. It's basically a gathering place for Sam/Scam enthusiasts! Go take a look. Lots of great art is constantly being added as well as discussions about the pairing! It's awesome! :)
1. Totally Spies - Sam/Tim Scam: Will ALWAYS be my number 1 pairing. (That's right FOREVER and EVER because they are PERFECT/FUN/HOT together! And not to mention Sam had a monster crush on him upon their first meeting and then continued to fall for guys who resembled Scam afterwards (such as James, Dean, David, the guy in the episode "Nature Nightmare" who Sam liked but learned he was married with kids, and MORE). What a "coincidence" is it not? Sam is the best and smartest spy and Scam is just wonderfully smart, witty and amazingly evil. I adore this guy soo much. I am a Scam and Sam writer as you can tell, so of course I like the pairing. DU'H!
*ALSOOOOOO* and this should get Sam/Scam fans hyper as it did me and to an extreme level at that. A few days ago Espionne discovered something in a TS episode that basically makes a strong case for Sam/Scam being canon! In the Spanish(Latin America) version of "The New Jerry", the first episode Scam was in, during the scene where Sam discovers Scam's true identity and he stuns her with the Stun-Tan Lotion while she's running away, he says, "Por que tienes tanta prisa, linda?" which in English means "Why are you in such a hurry, beautiful?"
As Espionne said this could be just because Spanish is a very romantic language to begin with, but to have Scam come right out and call Sam "beautiful" in the Spanish dub confirms it: SAM/SCAM IS CANON. I mean seriously, the makers allowed it to be in there and that says a lot and so does the fact that Scam has never said anything of this sort to ANYONE else in any episode.
Espionne also Googled the definition of "linda" (what Scam calls her) and found out that when used as a figurative term (as was the case in the context of the scene she mentioned), the word literally means "perfect" or "exquisite" according to the dictionary definition. In Espionne's words and to this I agree 1000% percent: This is significant because it means Scam actually isn't just calling Sam "beautiful"; he's describing her with a word reserved only for things that are attractive beyond the level described by "beautiful" (i.e. really "perfect"/"exquisite"). Apparently, this is also why Spanish-speaking people use "lindo/linda" primarily around people they are close/emotionally attached to.
If THAT isn't reason to freak out over Sam/Scam then I don't know what is! :D Here is the link to the episode who want to see it for themselves:
It's at 3:10. Thank you SO MUCH Espionne for this amazinggggg discovery! Sam/Scam fans are forever in your debt. :)
2. Inuyasha - Inuyasha/Kagome, Miroku/Sango: *heart* I also like Sesshomaru/Kagura and of course LOVE Inutaisho/Izayoi :) (Where it all began lol).
3. Merlin - Merlin/Morgana, Arthur/Gwen: Arthur and Gwen are just so cute as a couple. Seriously, they have got to be the most beautiful couple I have seen on any TV show in a VERY long time and Merlin and Morgana are my dose of good guy/evil girl. Go ARWEN and MERGANA!!!
4. Castle - Richard Edgar Castle/Kate Beckett, Ryan/Jenny, Esposito/Lanie :Love them, love them, LOVE THEM!
5. Criminal Minds - Hotch/Prentiss: Just started re-watching this show (from the first episode) and remembered how much I love them together. :)
6. The X-Files - Mulder/Scully
7. Dallas (1978, The Original) - J.R. Ewing/Pam: I know, I know Pam was married to his brother lol but they had sooo much chemistry with J.R. being the full-on baddie and Pam being all defiant and hateful of him, I am kinda shocked it never happened. :P Anyway I just got into this show NOW lmao. Thank goodness for classic shows being available online. :)
8. Hey Arnold! - Helga/Arnold: I am fairly certain this was my first pairing EVER. Also love Gerald/Phoebe, Eugene/Sheena and Rhonda/Harold. XD
9. Sailor Moon - Darien/Serena, Rei/Chad, Amy/Greg, Lita/Andrew, Mina/James: Yep. lots of em'.
10. Medabots - Ikki Tenyrō/Arika Amazake, Metabee/Brass: I loveee these ones :P, Yes BOTH (Metabots included lol, and METABEE IS A LEGEND, TOTALLY EPIC! XD)
11. Class of the Titans - Jay/Teresa, Archie/Atlanta, Neil/Echo, Odie/Calypso: The canon pairings.
12. Monsuno -Dax/Jinja: Just started watching this anime and despite the hints between Chase/Jinja being a couple, I like the whole love/hate going on between Dax/Jinja more lol. Because I like bantering between my couples. *nods*
13. Martin Mystery - Martin/Diana: Three words... Family by Marriage, that's why I still support them.
14. Reaper - Sam/Andi, Sam/Cady, Ben/Nina
15. Yu-Gi-Oh! - Dark Magician/Dark Magician Girl: *nods*
16. Sabrina, The Teenage Witch - Sabrina/Harvey: I grew up watching this show and remember screaming in joy when Sabrina got cold feet marrying Aaron during the final episode and ended up back with Harvey (her soulmate) in the end. :D Perfect ending to the series.
17. Pokemon - Ash/Misty, Jessie/James : XD
18. Beyblade - Tyson/Hilary, Ray/Mariah
19. Fairly Odd Parents - Cosmo/Wanda, Wanda/Juandissimo, Vicky/Mark Chang, Timmy/Tootie, Chester/Tootie, Crimson Chin/Golden Locks, Jorgen/Tooth Fairy
20. Wildcard - Zoe Busiek/Dan Lennox
21. Danny Phantom - Danny/Sam
22. Winx Club - Riven/Flora, Brandon/Stella
23. Di-Gata Defenders - Seth/Mel
24. W.I.T.C.H. - Caleb/Cornelia, Will/Matthew, Caleb/Will: They have their moments especially in Season 1.
25. B&B - Bill/Steffy, Wyatt/Steffy, Taylor/Ridge, Thorne/Macy, Pheobe/Shane: I actually got into this soap thanks to my mommy dearest who watched it since it first aired back in 1987 when I was not even born. Rofl. I don't watch it so much now due to boring storylines taking over the show. -_-
1. Harry Potter Series by J.K. Rowling - Harry/Hermione: Sigh... Draco/Hermione would have been cool too though. Another sigh...
2. Princess Series by Dawn Cook - Captain Jeck/Tess: I hope there is a third book because I am hanging onto this one. Also Captain Jeck reminds me A LOT of Tim Scam (my hero) so that's always a plus! :P
3. Heir Apparent by Vivian Vande Velde - Giannine/Kenric (a.k.a Nigel) - I wish she'd continue. That ending is such a tease. :P
4. Howl's Moving Castle by Diana Wynne Jones - Howl/Sophie: Their bickering is so hilarious. XD Howl with his colds and Sophie's cleaning fits...these two were made to be together.

If it's not up here yet it's probably because of one of the following reasons:
a. I'm too lazy to update.
b. I don't have a proper summary.
c. I don't have a proper title.
(It's most probably because of a. though (shrugs)
Also sometimes when I feel like it I also write random oneshots. I do that more than often, so expect a lot of those.
