I ♥ Mallie! I miss you guys so so much! See how he lifted her mood just like that? That is one of the reasons I love them. Others say they don’t have romantic potentials. Are you people blind, insensitive or something?! If the show’s story was written for them to be together, you can’t deny the fact that they’re perfect for each other.
Mallie had all the makings of a romantic pairing without the romantic plot. They had affection, adoration, understanding, support, chemistry -both emotional and physical- and unconditional love. The *only* reason I didn’t ship them is because I thought it was much cooler and rare to tell the story of a man and a woman who could be this way -could have this truly deep friendship- without falling in love or having a romantic relationship.
