"The Doctor Is Dying, The Doctor Is Dying!"  
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 and broadlicnic 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?

I'M SO GLAD YOU LOVED THEM TOGETHER. I just love everything they were, seriously. But, yes, the ending did not happen.

This was one of the fix-it series I read (maybe not the most brilliant prose but it will make everything happier!). The lj comm is lure_atwt and also lure_ficlibrary. ♥

I sent the link on Twitter, but here are my absolute favourite fics:

And here is my youtube, featuring the Reid cartoons that got so big they ended up in Soap Opera Weekly (and Eric Sheffer Stevens was a fan too), and a few other things I did, including the Orchard Endgame trailer. NOAH/RICHARD WERE THE TRUEST LOVE.

Don't be modest, dear! Eric Sheffer Stevens said you were BRILLIANT. There's audiotaped proof.

And I miss Orchard, too. Man, those ATWT writers sure did their best to mess everything up.

Hallo! *waves*

Followed the link from broadlicnic's recommendation post and thought I'd welcome you to LuRe fandom. So nice to see new fans of the good doctor and his do-gooder boyfriend, even though the writers tried to mess things up in the end.

Train? What train? There's no stinkin' train. Just the epic love of Luke and Reid. And hours of snarkiness.

As for fanfic and fanvids, I'm nowhere on the level of the work recommended by broadlicnic, but I do have a few fics and one video you might enjoy.

Pride and Prejudice, LuRe edition

Baked Goods, Part One
Baked Goods, Part Two
AU. Luke is a model, Reid a photographer. Written for the Queensland auction

Phone sex.

"This is a bad idea, Mr. Snyder."

All my fics are R to NC-17, so you're warned. :)

Hope to see you around Noah_Who ! It's lots of fun over there.

HI :D Thanks for the welcome. I love them so much and I have a ton of catching up to do fic-wise lol. Ugh words cannot describe the stupidity of the ending.

Thanks for the links! :D
