day 20!  
I swear, I will switch up the posts soon but for now, it's Day 20 of my 30 Day Multi Fandom Meme. :)

Day 20: A pairing you like, but don't like what canon did/is doing with them

There are many ships that I love and was frustrated at how canon treated them. For instance, Brooke/Lucas, Jake/Peyton, Will/Elizabeth, Lorelai/Luke, and Lex/Lana, but I didn't choose any of them. I went in a different direction: Rory/Jess (Gilmore Girls).



Unpopular opinion: I love Jess Mariano. I think he's fabulous and not just because of the whole bad boy thing. I usually actually lean toward the nice heroic boy (e.g. Clark Kent, Harry Potter), but I really liked Jess, because yes, he was a rebel and he could be an ass but he was smart. He loved to read! That's why I liked Belle growing up and it's what drew me to him. Books were the love that he and Rory shared and it's such a huge part of her life that this connection really meant something.

What I also love about Jess is that he matured. I love that Rory believed in Jess and thought he could do more. Then, when Rory was at a low point in her life, he came back and was the one person who got through to her. Yet canon really screwed up this ship that I love. Honestly, they had some great scenes when they were together but their scenes were so much more fun when they weren't. He left when they were on bad terms, and then when he finally came back, it resulted in him telling her he loved her and running away.

He came back again and asked her to run away with him. WTF? Jess knows Rory; he should've realized that she would never leave Yale and do that. They redeemed themselves in my eyes with Jess coming back, having written a book, and sending Rory back on the right path. But they had her go to Philadelphia to see him, resulting in a kiss, where Rory ended up declaring her love for Logan. Don't get me wrong; Logan grew on me and I ended up liking him with Rory, but the fact they had her use Jess to get back at Logan never sat well with me. To have that be their last interaction broke my heart. :( [Though I like to imagine that they reconnected at Luke & Lorelai's wedding and ended up together but that's another story]

I haven't watched much of Gilmore Girls, but what I have, I really liked Jess as a character :)

I loved Gilmore Girls! And yay for liking Jess. :D

I really liked them together as well. It was one of my favorite pairings on the show.

Oh yeah? That's awesome.

It was one of my favorite pairings on the show.
They were definitely OTP for me. :)

I didn't watch Gilmore Girls, but I noticed you put Jake/Peyton and Brooke/Lucas as two, and I have to say that I just love those two together!
Oh yeah? I loved Brooke/Lucas and Jake/Peyton. I felt they were perfect together. :(

I know Jake comes back eventually from reading a few descriptions (and I'm currently on ep 3x11), but I also know it's not going to end well already *facepalm*
Yaeh, at least you're mentally prepared. A part of me knew that Brucas wouldn't last (and Sophia & Chad Michael Marray's divorce didn't help) but I wish they could've brought back Leyton in a way that didn't involve breaking Brooke's heart again. I hate when triangles ruin friendships and Brooke/Peyton make me sad when they fight. :(

i didnt know jess wasnt popular!
anyway, i liked him...he brought something different to an otherwise fluffy show
and i did like his badassness, as well as his ass
the one i didnt like was logan!
gah, he was horrid!

I am not sure whether he's popular or not but I think a lot of people seem to like Dean. But that just may be the Jared fans.

anyway, i liked him...he brought something different to an otherwise fluffy show
True. He had a lot of layers and I found that interesting.

the one i didnt like was logan!
gah, he was horrid!

I actually liked Logan. He kind of reminded me of Tristan (Chad Michael Murray's character in season 1/early s2) 2.0 but he grew into his own. He pissed me off when he cheated but I liked him because he could actually go toe to toe with Rory.

ahjhhhhhhh, omg love Jess/Rory! They should have gotten married and had lots of little Rory's.
svgurl: rory/jesssvgurl on February 18th, 2011 02:27 am (UTC)
You too? Yay!

They should have gotten married and had lots of little Rory's.
LOL I like to imagine they did. I mean, they had to meet up at Luke & Lorelai's eventual wedding, right? In my head, they found their way back to each other and had lots of snarky children who loved to read. :D
