T/K is a...well, they're relationship is endleslly a lot more shallow than T/L, because T/L are very different
to each other, where T/K hold more similarities than they do differences. You can do more with T/L, which is why they appeal
to me as a writer. And the T/L fics that I've read, as well, have used this fact to great effect, and I resultedly enjoy reading
T/L fics, where the two of them play off each other really well, both deeply emotional ("Splintered Reflections" being the
most obvious one to point out) and light and fluffy (any number of T/L fics on ff.net). T/K just don't seem to have the same
appeal. (I'm not saying that there aren't good T/K fics out there. I've read some good ones, as far as writing goes. But the
couple just don't have the same appeal, in my opinion)
Also - and I don't really want to count this as a reason - I just
think T/L are cuter together. That was hard for me to say...
By the way - I'm not trying to convince anyone that they're floating the wrong ship here
- as I've said previously, that's not possible. Just offering my reasons. And I'd appreciate it if people didn't waste words
trying to convince me that my views are wrong, as that won't work either, no matter how open minded I am.
When Kimi entered the scene she was officially cloned off Tommy. Like a female version
of him. It was done as an intent to break her in easy because she cold use a similar dynamic with her new brother Chuckie
the same way Chuckie does with Tommy. So T/K really has alot in common.
Superficially thats cute but thats as far as it
goes. Good writers and artists create characters with alot to go on so they don't paint themselves into a corner. Like having
a bigger canvas or a bigger block of marble to work with, the potential is much higher.
It also applies in real life. Sure
relating to a girl/guy you like is easier if you have stuff in common but that only goes as far as small talk or crush stages.
It is the couples who strive to over come each other's differences to maintain their relationship that are STRONG and will
last longer. They know what its like to make sacrifices for each other and to love someone else selflessly despite their short
comings. T/K does not posses that potential cause they're like two of the same person. They have no interesting challenges
to overcome. But T/L does and so does P/K... AND C/A has the most.
