Do you remember your first OTP? Who was in it?
Oh, my. That would be the Ninth Doctor, Rose Tyler and Capt. Jack Harkness. Yes, my first OTP was an OT3.
Another early OTP was probably Laura Roslin and Bill Adama, because they are both awesome, ruthless, brave, brilliant, and unexpectedly gentle and vulnerable. Karl “Helo” Agathon and Sharon “Athena” Agathon, too, are a favorite couple, because of everything they went through to keep their love, and their daughter, alive. But those two BSG relationships are less OTPs than TPs, I guess.
I suppose another caveat in my answer to this question is that I might have had some OTPs, or at least TPs, in my book reading — for example, Aral and Cordelia from the Vorkosiverse, (although I fell for them after I discovered online fandom, so that's not a first) or Corwin-Deirdre in Zelazny’s Amber series; hush, I know they’re siblings, or half siblings. It’s Amber, and they can do what they want.
I can’t remember any others. I might, if I trotted off to my bookshelves, but if I can’t easily remember them, then I don’t think they fit the bill.
