Okay, so One Tree Hill is the reason I decided to blog about fannish pursuits! Well, that and Sarah’s post on Dawson’s Creek. As I said on Twitter, I have a lot of feelings about both. And, as a follow up, I also said that might be an understatement.
(If you’re wondering why I didn’t post about Dawson’s Creek for D, it’s because I really cannot top Sarah’s post about it. I mean, seriously.)
The fact that I never finished watching this series is my greatest shame because it is, possibly, the show I am most fannish about.
(I didn’t finish because of grad school. I don’t want to talk about it.)
Anyway, I love this show with my whole heart. It was frequently terrible, but the showrunners valued what was important to me: emotional continuity and, of course, friendship. Also, they were supremely loyal to their ships. Never let it be said that having a couple get and stay together is boring: Nathan and Haley were a mainstay from season one. I think they had only one major break-up, and the show ran for nine seasons. NINE.
I can’t believe that either, honestly.
Sometimes I randomly think about what an ass Dan is and have a rage blackout. Still. After all these years.
However, instead of doing that today, I am going to post a vid of Nathan and Haley’s first kiss because it is one of my favorite first kisses ever. (Also, I can’t find a video of Bevin Notebook-ing Skills.) So!
Also, major props to this show because Peyton was probably my least favorite character in season one, and I actually grew to love her with my whole heart.
This is another one of those shows that I have TOO MUCH to say so can’t think of anything that adequately expresses the true depths of my love. I mean, I haven’t even talked about Keith or Karen or Lucas or Brooke or Mouth or Jake or…I mean, I could go on. Just know that I love it that much. Even if I haven’t finished the series.
For the A to Z challenge, I’m blogging about fannish pursuits (aka things I’m a fan of or have strong feelings about). Tune in tomorrow to see what I picked for P!
