Loathe at First Sight

"What, my dear Lady Disdain! are you yet living?"
-Benedick, Much Ado about Nothing, Act I, scene 1

Beatrice and Benedick. Elizabeth and Mr. Darcy. Leia and Han. Swoon-worthy couples and romances for the ages, all of them, but what else do they have in common? At the beginning of their stories, each of these couples absolutely detested each other.

To be clear, I'm not referring to impersonal enmity, here-- these are (for the most part) not people placed at odds by warring nations, class conflicts, or clan feuds. (You'll note Romeo and Juliet didn't make this list-- they had family problems, sure, but they loved each other straight away). No, I'm talking about couples who pretty much do the opposite of "hitting it off" when they first meet. This is the classic "enemies-to-lovers" trope, and it's one of my personal favorites.
