Top 10 romantic ships in One Tree Hill (as voted by my followers) → #1: Haley James Scott and Nathan Scott
“Haley, you got a tattoo for God sakes. It just freaks me out a little bit because obviously this whole thing with us means a lot to you. I just don’t want to do anything to pressure you or drive you away. Even though sometimes I can’t help it. Just like I can’t help that I fell in love with you. Cause I did. I love you, Haley. And it scares me, a little bit, but, there it is.


I screw up a lot, alright. And being around you, I just don’t want to be that guy anymore. Who do you want to be, Nathan? I want to be somebody who’s good enough to be seen with you. You should have thought of that last night. You know, I keep putting myself out there and you keep blowing it. That’s probably a good thing…


No amount of falls will really undo us if we keep on picking ourselves up each time. We shall of course be very muddy and tattered children by the time we reach home. But the bathrooms are all ready, the towels put out, and the clean clothes are in the airing cupboard.” -C.S. Lewis, in a letter to Mary Neylan, January 20, 1942



You know, I was sitting in class and I looked over and saw your empty seat and it struck me; that not too long ago, it was just you and me. Suddenly, it felt wrong; that you weren’t there. Here’s what I think: you stood by me when I left the Rivercourt because a voice in my head told me that it’s what I had to do. So I’m here for you, Hales. And I always will be. Even when I don’t understand it.
