The Childhood Connection. It’s not the bare fact of them having known each other since age five, even if just from afar, that matters. Time does not by itself create anything meaningful. It’s who they are now that makes it important, in their own minds, for someone to have seen them through those different incarnations of development. Dylan and Kelly are two people who feel having such continuity allows them to trust the unconditional nature of the other’s love even more. They can believe that someone has watched them grow, fall, and get back up again, able to recognize their most primal instincts/patterns and authentic self in the face of any false projection. This is paramount because their entire individual stories rely on the fact that they have duplicitous images to resolve, both for themselves and other people. Their union mandates accountability for being who they are, as they have the support and freedom to change self-perceptions long-morphed by public reputation. And, for emphasis, Dylan is virtually defined by his desire and ability to call up sincerity around him. He’s the only one who can see Kelly, immediately, for everything she was, is, and might be. It’s no coincidence that he would usher in her coming-of-age story, and very fitting that this occurs at a time when he needs some element of his past to protect.

I just want to go away, to someplace new,
where nobody knows me ... but you.

[For the Super Swinger FanGeek Within]

Even before he noticed her,
he noticed her boat.
A sleek, two-footer she had been given
for her fifth birthday a few days before.
She was sailing it
upside down in a large pool that had formed
during a winter rain.
The rain, again. In a marina this time.
The boats, like the girl, had grown.
Beautiful ... inspirational.
After the explosion that killed his father
she was the only beauty, the only inspiration ...
left in his life.


I love thee to the depth and breadth and height
my soul can reach
when feeling out of sight.
For ends of being and ideal grace.
I love thee freely
as men strive for right.
I love thee purely
as they turn from praise.
I love thee with a passion put to use,
in my old griefs,
and with my childhood’s faith.
I love thee with the
breath, smiles, tears ... of all my life.

He taught her that its okay to love.
She compelled him to love again.

End Notes/Disclaimer/Thank You:
First of all, thanks for waiting this out, everybody, LOL. We surely didn’t expect to deliver the 100th in nine months time (since initial planning) but, well, I guess it really is our baby. ; ) It’s also very likely that everything you believe took months actually took days and what looks like it could be done in a few days actually took months. There have been many revisions, to say the least. This is just a first step towards truly clarifying what the Dylan/Kelly story represents, in simple terms. // Corrections (general): the S6 write-up includes the mention of Charlie Rose (should be Tom Rose!), a character for which there was no room to discuss in S5. Several plotlines were omitted here and there for this very reason, esp. unrelated near-death experiences. The chronological ‘reasons’ lists may give a more thorough impression of each season. // Songs: we included tracks that play during group scenes too. Basically, anytime they interact whatsoever. As such, some are immediately reminiscent of their scenes while others are not. There is some overlap with other couple's songs. We make no claim that a track is necessarily pertinent to the Dylan/Kelly story exclusively. // Add. Credits: the black/white illustration of our couple is made by Anton Hare, a famous illustrator. // Graphs: specific episodes/incidents counted will be disclosed to mods. Please note that comparisons between different sets of data can only be done accurately if all categories are defined the same way. S6-S8: these seasons have not been thoroughly reviewed in the making of this thread. We might have missed something. Eh, but we doubt it.

Coming Soon:

1. All past threads are currently being reread. The best posts will be saved and used for a future anniversary, with the correct permissions. Small/interesting facts, things we wish, things we wonder about, and our looming debate questions are also under collection [status: 0 more (out of 100) threads; need to organize]. Your conversations have not been in vain, lol. 2. S9/S10 instrumentals. 3. Continuation of the novel transcribing. 4. Downloadable cap/pic sets and a makeover for the LoveVault PB.

Okay, roll call!
Cause we never forget a fan and you're always welcome to return.

Well I'm sure the guy's out there somewhere.
___ Maybe. But I'm scared to open up my heart like that again.
