okay but seriously tho brandon and callie don't get enough credit
let me explain..
THEY COULD EASILY BE MAKING OUT ALL THE FUCKING TIME. THEY COULD EASILY BE FUCKING ALL THE FUCKING TIME. (the show would be more hbo/showtime than freeform but w.e you get my point)
but they don’t. they try. they understand their situation and they try so fucking hard to make it work the way everyone wants it too. and they just don’t get enough credit for trying! they want to be with each other (nearing the end of season three, we’re still talking about ‘what if things were different’), but they date other people ‘for the greater good’. they keep it platonic even when they’re alone when they don’t technically have to. they’re genuinely trying.
and i get that the stakes are high, so when they do slip up and act on their feelings that hell breaks loose but come on bruh. give em credit.they tried.
like when jude was going off on callie for kissing brandon … he was all like YOU RUIN EVERYTHING! and it’s like okay but yoo, where’s her credit for not kissing him up until then? i’m dead ass serious tho like? wheres her credit for pulling away ‘because of their situation?’ she fought her feelings for him for as long as she could and the moment she gave in she gets yelled at like that? like he thought she didn’t try? how is that fair?
that’s like having a button in front of you that says do not touch and all you do is stare at it and stare at it and you like the button and you know the button likes you just as much as you like it and you trust the button and you talk openly and honestly with the button and the button just knows you better than anyone, better than you know yourself because the button is your best friend and in a world of uncertainty that is your life and situation, that button is a constant that you can rely on and you can trust the button to just always be there for you no matter what and you just fight the urge to touch it until you’re like, no one is looking *touch* and then RED ALARMS GO OFF! LOL and its like AWW COME ON!
brandon and callie give in but you have to be trying in the first place in order to ‘give in’. not doing something is required in order to ‘relapse’ or ‘fall back into’ and like addicts get a ‘chip’ acknowledging and crediting them for how long they ‘didn’t do something’ i just feel they need credit for that. sure. they fail (which is my favourite part, like ha. losers. you still like each other) but they deserve credit for what they don’t do. sure they kissed again in 2x10, but they didn’t do anything up until then and they only kissed when they thought they could and sure they had sex in 3x09 but they didn’t do anything up until then and only when they thought they could. they never do anything when their situation is ‘ON’ .. only when ‘OFF’. the moms might not even believe that considering they thought she was pregnant with his child (meaning they think they’re fucking behind their back) and i’m sure with the sex secret ‘out(?) the entire family isn’t going to buy the fact that they only fucked once. NO ONE WOULD. but it’s true. they work so hard man. they have feelings but they fight it. constantly. daily. and it’s shown to be exhausting. but them falling back into each other shouldn’t be seen as them fucking shit up all the time but like yo… they’re in a shit unique situation and they held on for as long as they could. they’re trying and making the best of the situation everyone is putting them in.
