Stop Hating on Brallie
Firstly Brandon and Callie had an immediate connection, and had a feeling that they could trust each other immediately. Not everyone believes in love at first sight, and this is a different way to explain it. An instant connection. It was completely obvious the more they started talking to each other, and trusting each other they, the more you could see that they like each other romantically.
Yes they were foster siblings, and they knew it was wrong, but who gets to choose who you fall in love with? You don’t get to choose, and it’s never easy when it’s real love.
They both tried pretty hard to conceal their feelings for each other, but gave in before it was too late. Moms asked Callie if she wanted to get adopted, but she has feelings for Brandon. She wanted to know how far her relationship with Brandon could’ve gone, so she kissed him afterwards. They trust each other completely. (A major component in a healthy relationship) Brandon taught Callie how to trust other people, after she trust him.
They snuck around and continued dating until she realized she needs a family. She didn’t break up with Brandon because she didn’t love him, she just couldn’t live on her own. It hurt Callie and Brandon pretty badly when they broke up. They truly love each other, and they couldn’t be together, not because they didn’t want to, but because it’s not what she needed at the time.
Then he moved in with his dad, to try to move on from Callie, to benefit the family, but it didn’t work, they are still in love with each other, and when Robert didn’t want to resign the papers, she thought she was not getting adopted, and thought she was giving up Brandon for no reason. It’s not that she loves the family more than him, it’s that she’s afraid she’ll lose the family if she gives in to her feelings for Brandon, but she did, and she kissed him, again. Brandon respectfully walked away so Callie didn’t give up on getting adopted. He knew that she might regret it later (which she didn’t), so he stopped it so she can get adopted, even though he loves her. He thought that she only comes to him when things are going wrong with her, and that’s true to an extent.
Yes, she goes to Brandon when she’s vulnerable. It doesn’t mean she doesn’t love him. It also means that he’s her support for anything. He didn’t want to get heartbroken again so he told her it was over (which it wasn’t). She was heartbroken, she would’ve chose Brandon if he told her that he wanted to.
So the whole time between 2x12 to 3x09 Callie thought that Brandon didn’t want to be with her, so she continued fighting for the adoption. Brandon just needed to tell her he loves her, and she would’ve choose him, but he is selfless, and decided to continue helping her get a family.
They continued seeing other people, and fight for the adoption until they thought it was all over. They thought Carmen was going to reveal their whole relationship, and if she didn’t they were sure that Rita would, so they gave into all of their feelings and slept together. They put a lot of love and passion into it. It showed how much they truly mean to each other.
They came home from Idyllwild as a couple and planned to tell moms the whole truth, but to be shut down by finding out she can be adopted.
Daphne told Callie to go for what she wants, then Callie goes into Brandon’s room confessing her love for him, and almost choose him. “What if I call Robert? Maybe-” The a door slammed to interrupt them. They were so close to choosing each other, but then they saw how happy the family was, and they both couldn’t ruin that.
(Brandon and Callie are the two most selfless characters in the show.)
She decided to get adopted, and they tried to shut down their feelings.
It failed. They still love each other after the adoption. I mean they were forced to shut off their feelings to keep their family happy, of course it wouldn’t work. They were forced to try to move on, but like Brandon said “What we feel only happens once in a lifetime”, they won’t love anyone like they love each other.
Brandon and callie are soulmates, forced to be siblings.
Incest is illegal mainly because if a child is conceived it can have deformities, this obviously doesn’t apply to adoptive siblings.
Morally they wouldn’t be wrong, they are ex lovers. Soulmates, forced apart by parents and their selflessness. Also it’s not illegal for them to date in California.
You can say it’s gross, but it’s not. They will never see each other as true siblings, unlike Callie-Jesus Callie-Mariana Jude-Callie Jude-Mariana Jude-Jesus Jude-Brandon Jesus-Mariana Jesus-Brandon Mariana-Brandon. Would you be able to see an ex that you’re in love with as a brother or sister, no, so why do you expect Callie and Brandon to?
You can say “DNA doesn’t make family, love does.” And this is true, but nowhere says what a family should look like. Anyone you love could be your family, a friend, a lover or siblings could be classified as family. This show proves there are no structure for a family. The stereotypical family is a mom, dad and few kids.This show features Two Moms, a mixed of Biological and Adoptive children, but why can’t a family included lovers, soulmates. It includes Stef and Lena, but Brandon and Callie could be included as lovers, and everyone could still see each other as family.
Also “A piece of paper doesn’t make family”. For the whole time Callie wasn’t adopted she still saw Jesus and Mariana as siblings, and Moms as her moms, and Brandon as the guys she’s in love with, and the adoption didn’t change any of those feelings. They could find ways in the future where Callie and Brandon are together, and Callie is still part of the Adams Foster family.
Callie and AJ are unhealthy. He doesn’t respect her decisions to help people, and yes it may get overboard, but he doesn’t take interest in it. Also she barely knew his interests such as carpentry and other interests. They don’t truly know each other as well as Brandon and Callie know each other. AJ and Callie are mostly physical than emotional, and I do believe she does love AJ, just not the way she loves Brandon.
The writer won’t just make Brandon and Callie soulmates (which they basically confirmed in many interviews), and not put them together.
Brallie is endgame. They’re not gross or incest and they completely support The Fosters theme.
The theme is family, love, acceptance and equality.
All love is equal, no matter what age you are, if you found a true love, and you know it, don’t let other people tell you otherwise. Teenage Love is no different from finding love as an adult, you just found it earlier. Just because Brandon and Callie fell for each other when they weren’t supposed to, doesn’t mean they don’t love each other. Stef’s dad didn’t approve of Stef and Lena being together, and she fought and all the fans are proud of her, and when Brandon and Callie fight for their relationship, they get hate. And the theme is all love is equal, and if you don’t believe Callie and Brandon truly love each other, but believe the themes of the show, then you’re hypocritical.
This show is also about acceptance. And I believe one day everyone in the family will accept Brallie, and it will continue supporting the theme of the show.
Brandon and Callie are currently forbidden, so they have to show their feelings through eye contact, body gestures, facial expressions and etc. Most people don’t pay attention, and don’t understand the love signals they give each other emotionally, not verbally.
People should actually give Brallie a chance, and I bet everyone will stop hating on them less when they are accepted by moms, and allowed to be together, and seen as a couple. Not as “siblings” as they are forced to be seen.
They are only human, do you expect humans to be able to put off true emotions for so long? No. They aren’t sociopaths, so at least try to pay attention.
They’re not incest or gross, they support The Fosters theme and they truly love each other, and if you don’t ship them, then sorry. It’s painful to ship them, and you have to be really patient, but if you do ship, when they become canon then the payoff will be so fulfilling. And if you don’t ship them, then sorry that you’ll miss out on the fulfillment, but I do believe Brallie is endgame.
You don’t have to ship it, just don’t call them “incest” or “gross’’. No need for hate, you can just say you don’t prefer them and be respectful about it.
