MY OTP’S:

Piper and Leo:

image

Piper and Leo’s relationship ran for the entirety of the series and had it’s ups and downs. It was a reliable relationship that even when Piper and Leo were fighting and at odds there was a light at the end of the tunnel.

Phoebe and Cole:

image

While Phoebe and Cole’s relationship was ultimately doomed the connection and chemistry between these two was no doubt sizzling. The struggle of Good vs. Evil is displayed extremely well in this pairing.

Paige and Henry: 

image

Paige and Henry’s relationship was the shortest in terms of length for the show. Their relationship was not short of its miscommunications and arguments and their caring and love shone through.
