So a couple of days ago dearest finkpishnets
made a post about how she had been thinking about Luke/Reid's storyline from US soap As The World Turns and how angry and sad she was about how it ended. I commented asking whether I should bother to watch it as I used to watch As The World Turns for Luke/Noah's storyline, but I stopped watching a little while after Noah's firework accident as it was just horrible to watch. Noah became a complete douche and it was just unfun to watch.finkpishnets
told me that I should in an epic comment of a sales pitch. I blitzed through the majority of it last night (in a desparate attempt to ignore current family issues, I'll explain later...maybe) and instantly fell in love. Here's why:
+ Dr Reid Oliver is the best and most snarkiest brain surgeon in the world
+ His people skills are crap and it's hilarious
+ The chemistry between Luke and Reid is amazing
+ it's just nice to see Luke smiling and happy after the utter douche that is Noah Mayer
+ They're both cute as hell
+ The way they snog is just UNF UNF UNF
+ Reid sews teddy bears when he's angsty BECAUSE HE'S BADASS
+ Reid being freaked out by the feelings of love is ADORABLE
I just loved them fighting, hating each other, getting together. I just loved them as a couple.
Then their getting together story-line ended and they got involved in a new story-line; Chris' bad heart due to a magical tropical bug. Uggggggh. What a dull story-line. Eventually it ended in Reid getting into a car/train collision (which btw is the worst stunt sequence I've ever seen on television) whilst he was on his way to another hospital to get Chris a new heart. He survived the accident and made it to hospital but the doctors (HIS FUCKING COLLEAGUES) just seemed to give up on him straight away. Brilliant. Reid then agrees to give his heart to Chris before he goes brain-dead. SUCH A WASTE OF A GOOD CHARACTER. Chris is one of the most worthless characters I've ever seen. Even his own father thinks he will amount to nothing more than a pediatrician Just ugh, no wonder As The World Turns was cancelled.
So I shall join finkpishnets
in denial of anything that happened after Reid said "I love you" to Luke. THEY LIVED HAPPILY EVER AFTER OK.
Now can everyone shower me in fanfic and fanvids for these two please to heal my pain?
