Addison and Derek - the idea of ‘forever’.

Lately, I’ve been overcome by a lot of emotions concerning pairings I used to love. Well, I still do, but either the show isn’t airing anymore or the pairing isn’t on it anymore. Either way, all of these ships are personal to me, because together they make this puzzle of how I want to love and live and be loved and wanted. Second on that list is a pairing from Grey’s Anatomy, Addison and Derek.

Why them? Essentially, it is about the fact that we are a generation of quitters. It does sound harsh and a part of it is meant to be harsh, to be rude, to be loud in its message. Also, what I love about them is not for everyone, it’s not necessarily something that makes everyone happy or fulfills everyone’s desires. For me, though, the idea of Addison and Derek is that marriage isn’t about being in love for the rest of your life. Frankly, I don’t believe in that idea. I don’t believe in this picture painted by Walt Disney. For me, marriage is a promise to be loyal, to be supportive, to be courageous enough not to give up. Adultery is a huge blow, it’s a difficult thing to work through, but I guess I like to believe that committing yourself to someone in the way marriage demands of you, I want to think it’s possible. I want to believe that people can grow old together, that instead of telling the stories of things that almost happened, they’ll tell their children and their grand-children about the stories that did. They’ll tell them that relationships are hard, that marriage is hard, that you have to get up and commit yourself to it everyday, just to make it through the day, the week, the month, the year, but that it’s worth it. That there’s nothing like being with someone for 30 or 40 or 50 years and knowing them inside out and also knowing that they know you inside out, too, and are still with you. I want marriage to be friendship, loyalty, support and faith.

Bette and Tina - a tribute of sorts.

Lately, I’ve been overcome by a lot of emotions concerning pairings I used to love. Well, I still do, but either the show isn’t airing anymore or the pairing isn’t on it anymore. Either way, all of these ships are personal to me, because together they make this puzzle of how I want to love and live and be loved or wanted. First on that list is a pairing from The L Word, Bette and Tina.

Why them? The way they loved, mostly. There is something beautifully romantic and brutally devastating - or rather brutally romantic and beautifully devastating, about the way they loved each other. To me that love was most evident when they were not together, when they didn’t even like each other. All it took then was for either of them to look at the other and it was all there. The way they loved wasn’t bound by rules of engagement or defined by a sexual relationship. The way they loved was through friendship, through loyalty and support. It didn’t start again in season five, because it never ended in the first place. That’s what hurts the most for Jodi, the inevitability of it all. I loved that what they had wasn’t the I-can’t-live-without-you kind of story. I wouldn’t have bought into that. They lived apart from each other and understood that they could do that for the rest of their lives, but chose each other instead and continued to choose each other for as long as the series lasted. For me being in love isn’t about inability to live without someone, but about knowing you can and the free will to choose to be with that person. That’s love for me.
