It was a comet. The boy saw the comet and he felt as though his life had meaning. And when it went away, he waited his entire life for it to come back to him. It was more than just a comet because of what it brought to his life: direction, beauty, meaning. There are many who couldn’t understand, and sometimes he walked among them. But even in his darkest hours, he knew in his heart that someday it would return to him, and his world would be whole again.
I will never understand why people don’t believe wholeheartedly that Leyton were always endgame.
I’m sorry, but Brooke was never meant for Lucas. Hell, Lucas didn’t even LIKE Brooke in the beginning. He had a crush on Peyton for YEARS before they even met. “Peyton Sawyer will become Peyton Scott, that was like 8th grade.” “You know, I used to watch you.” Lucas ALWAYS had his eye on Peyton. And he STILL had a thing for Peyton when he met Brooke, or rather, when Brooke hid in the backseat minus her clothes because she wanted to sleep with Lucas. Brooke’s intentions starting out were never pure. Her only goal was to sleep with Lucas because he was hot and on the basketball team. But Peyton….. it wasn’t about looks or popularity to her.
Peyton found her inspiration in Lucas. When she thought she wasn’t good enough, that her art wasn’t good enough, he was there to let her know that she was, and that her art matters. And Peyton helped Lucas without saying a word. “Your art matters, it’s what got me here.”
Everything between the moment she almost hit him with her car and the moment she became Peyton Sawyer Scott happened because they both were afraid of their feelings. The only reason Lucas was with Brooke or even Lindsey is because the timing was always off with Peyton. They both wanted different things at different times. They both were afraid of being hurt. But there’s a reason that he was always saving Peyton. There’s a reason why Brooke was always insecure in their relationship when it came to Peyton. There’s a reason why Lindsey left Lucas. It’s because of Peyton. It’s because Lucas always loved Peyton. And everyone knew it. He knew it. She knew it. It was just a matter of admitting it and taking action. “The boy I love protected the girl I love and it’s the girl he loves too.”
Lucas and Peyton understood each other more than anyone else ever did. Brooke never understood Peyton on a deeper level. Peyton was into art and music with a meaning and finding a purpose and all Brooke cared about was boys and popularity, in the first few seasons at least. But Lucas understood. Lucas was also searching for a purpose. And he found it. It was Peyton.
I guess I’m partial to Leyton because I relate to Peyton in so many ways and I’ve lived my own version of Leyton’s story, aka lonely girl meets big shot basketball player. But their story is so special and it inspires me every day.
