It really is. I wish that the love I experienced with my ex was a love founded on friendship. We might have lasted if we had actually, you know, liked each other instead of just loved each other.

friends-to-lovers ships are my my fave, so it's odd that BC took so long for me.

You were distracted by the Clexa of it all, same as me.

Yeah, pretty much. Which is funny, cause Clexa isn't normally the type of ship I like, but they got me.

I'm glad I ship both, though. Gives me the opportunity to try and see both sides of it from opposite perspectives, and also, both groups of shippers are very talented, so I get to enjoy all of it.

It's nice being able to enjoy every facet.

So I bought a HDMI cable today and just watched some Bellarke vids on a huge HD flat screen, took my breath away!

That's cool, Amelia. Didn't it kind of take Bellamy a while to grow on you, too? I remember you making a list of, like, polarizing characters last hiatus, and you put him at the top of it, and I remember you saying that you wanted to like him but just struggled with it. I mean, season four ended up being a pretty pivotal season for Bellamy's development, and I don't think you'd be alone if you're one of the fans who needed to see that change from him in season four in order to start to ship Bellarke.

Ooh, which vids, Becks?

Man, I want to write some fanfic tonight, but I'm so tired!

this one is a fave of mine:



Also I love the parallel vids, part 1 and 2. I'm a huge fan of Bellarke paralleling canon ships, it says a lot.

Personally, I thought that shipping BC in season 3 was so hard and aggravating sometimes. Even though I ultimately loved all their scenes, it was tough being in the fandom (apart from FF). It's been a lot easier this season.

Yes. I didn't like Bellamy in season 1 (at least at the beginning), but he was supposed to be an ass back then anyway. Season two made me actually like him quite a bit, but wow, yeah, season three kind of ruined him and I wasn't sure if there was a way for me to like him again. But season four definitely changed that. I needed that change and progress before I could ship BC fully, I guess.

That makes sense. I mean, I think it's really hard to ship or even support a ship when you aren't really liking half of the pairing.

Oh, wow, Becks, I wasn't ready for that. Now if only "Seeing" wasn't misspelled.

I don't even know when I fell for Bellamy

Damn, I didn't notice the typo the concept is still pretty powerful though

Yeah, the concept can overpower the grammar mistake.

For me . . . I was always intrigued by Bellamy, but I don't actually remember when I started to like him. I think it just kind of happened naturally and gradually. All I know is that, by the time the 1x06 flashbacks happened, he was my favorite character already.

I really didn't like Bellamy in the first two episodes, such an ass there but then the real Bellamy started to emerge and I was intrigued and started liking him. Whereas I didn't like Finn from the start and that feeling never changed. Bellamy was always inherently a much more compelling and complex character and his interactions with Clarke just enhanced that because they have such an interesting dynamic.

I agree, Sarah. Finn was the supposedly "likable" guy, but there wasn't enough substance there with him for me to like. So Bellamy was much more compelling, as you said. Bellamy benefits, too, from being the character who is part of BOTH the show's most central relationships (or at least what I interpret to be the most central relationships: Bellarke and The Blakes). So much of his character is revealed in his interactions with the two of them.
