I hate/love OTH so much. The parts I love, fucking destroy me. The parts I hate give me so much rage.
So far in my rewatch I’m up to s5, and at least twice an episode I shout “DICK!” to Lucas. Seriously, what a dick. I know it should be water under the bridge because of the perspective that comes with knowing how it all turns out, but apparently fangirl rage isn’t logical like that (who knew, right?).
Can I just rant for a second…because let’s keep in mind that when he proposed they were 19..NINETEEN! And everything she said was SO smart and empowered, about them both needing to follow their dreams otherwise they’d end up resentful, and all she wanted was to wait one more year. And because she won’t abadon her dreams to be a 19 year old wife he ends the whole thing?
Like I said…DICK.
I really shouldn’t be trying to make sense of OTH. I know this. And yet, my Lucas rage burns strong. I wonder if there are any other fandoms in which you are passionate about your OTP and yet also think one of them is a tool who doesn’t deserve the other one.
