I CAN’T DEAL WITH THIS
frankturnerofficial: Come on Brooklyn!
Can we just talk for a moment about these two precious people here?
Sometimes I just get hit by an overwhelming surge of emotion for these two because for me, their story will forever be one of the most heartbreaking love stories ever told.
At first she hates his world and his ways and him and all she wants is to leave, and he hates her for being too similar to and yet so different from Sam. But with everything they go through together, they develop this beautiful relationship whereby they trust each other implicitly, and considering that they are two people not apt to fully trust others, that’s amazing. And then he falls in love with her sexy, confident, no-nonsense exterior and the frailties she hides inside of herself, and she falls in love with the rude, sarcastic, alpha-male image he likes to perpetuate and the fears and the insecurities he does his best to hide from even himself.
But they never get a chance. Not one single chance to even acknowledge that they love each other, let alone act on it or tell each other. They’re both torn a million different ways by a million different other factors - they go through so much together, they reach breaking point time and time again, but time and time again they come through it, together, and it takes my breath away how deep the trust between them really ran in the end. The dynamic between them is so complex - far more complex than I could ever summarise here or in any fanfiction, but that moment where Alex is standing there and Gene is on the floor, broken, and she says ‘I’m not leaving him’. That moment is one of the most powerful of the series and it breaks my heart. They deserved so much better than their fates - they deserved each other.
And then when they finally did get the glimmer of a chance, when the possibility of an opportunity to be open with each other, to be together, came along… He sent her away. And she went.
And that will never not kill me.
