I remember in my podcast of 2020 June, I wondered if there were any non-canon romances that really interested me beyond Jo and Laurie from “Little Women”. Well… I finally remembered today there definitely was one for the two original seasons of “Twin Peaks”. Here is an image of it:
Audrey Horne and Special Agent Dale Cooper
Yep! That was THEE one for me! Of course, with this style of image, one can certainly get the impression this is a canon couple, right? Just like some of the Doctor Hoffman and Barnabas Collins images. Either way? Both couples on the original television series’ were one sided. She was interested, and he was not.
Sure, one can come up with the idea that *maybe* under much different circumstances perhaps an older Audrey Horne might have been to Dale Cooper’s liking, but, for all regards, in the original “Twin Peaks” series, no, sadly enough. I would not be opposed to reading some fanwork that got this couple together, but I wouldn’t pretend it was canon, simply a fancy I’ve had in the past.
With this I feel I may be able to identify a little bit more with preferences for non-canon couples. Took a long time to remember, but I am relieved I finally have.
Stay safe and be well,
