“I don’t know if I will have the time to write any more letters because I might be too busy trying to participate. So if this does end up being the last letter, I just want you to know that I was in a bad place before I started high school, and you helped me. Even if you didn’t know what I was talking about or know someone who’s gone through it, you made me not feel alone. Because I know there are people who say all these things don’t happen. And there are people who forget what it’s like to be 16 when they turn 17. I know these will all be stories someday. And our pictures will become old photographs. We’ll all become somebody’s mom or dad. But right now these moments are not stories. This is happening. I am here and I am looking at her. And she is so beautiful. I can see it. This one moment when you know you’re not a sad story. You are alive, and you stand up and see the lights on the buildings and everything that makes you wonder. And you’re listening to that song and that drive with the people you love most in this world. And in this moment I swear, we are infinite.”

“I hope the argyle sweater (owned by Duncan, then by Logan, then by Piz) makes an appearance in the movie. I really enjoyed that gag in the show, and seeing it again would be a nice wink to hardcore fans.”
“Duncan was an incredibly dark character , otherwise he could never have ordered Clarence Wiedman to kill Aaron, and that was not explored enough in Season 2. I wouldn’t have minded Veronica and Duncan being together in Season 2 if the writers had put more depth to the Duncan character instead of being in such a rush to write him off. I liked it when Duncan yelled at Logan about Logan’s father killing Lilly. I wanted to see Duncan yell at his mother for telling him that Veronica was his half-sister. I wanted to see Duncan and Veronica fight about how he ignored Veronica for a whole year, how Veronica went out with Logan and how he knew about Meg’s pregnancy. I wanted to see the darker side of him which was there but never explored in much depth.”
“Logan will always be Veronica’s second choice and I think a lot of LoVe shippers choose to ignore that. She will always love Duncan and she would never pick Logan over him. Logan only has a shot because she can’t be with Duncan. I think that’s something to think about when people go on and on about how LoVe is epic.”
