It's February again! Guess what that means? Yep. It's our month to celebrate geek love!

Join us all of February for our House of Love. Feel free to jump in and vote anytime this month as we celebrate our favorite fictional couples. Couples were nominated from books, television, movies, etc.

In 2015, you all voted on your favorite fictional couples in six elimination rounds and the finals (see below).

This year, we'll be voting again to eliminate our least favorites each day, until only the best remain! Our first round starts with: (Pictured from left to right, top to bottom) Simon and Kaylee (Firefly), Aeris and Cloud (Final Fantasy), Vin and Elend (Mistborn), the Ninth Doctor and Rose (Doctor Who), Buffy and Angel (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Molly and Sherlock (Sherlock), Han and Leia (Star Wars), Karrin Murphy and Harry Dreden (The Dresden Files), and Lan and Nynaeve (The Wheel of Time).
