You dorks! I was actually trying to ABSTAIN from posting a response to that one because um... MY ANSWER IS SO OBVIOUS. Also, I'd kind of like to hear a Nay answer? EVEN THOUGH IT'S THE WRONG ANSWER.

But since you're all waiting for it!


Up front they seem terrible for each other - he's a slob and she's a snob! He's into Patty and Curly loves Rhonda! They'd do nothing but fight all the time! HE ATE THEIR BABY!

And to that I say:


I don't even know where to begin really. I just.... they work for me because they're so different, but they're also both two people who go out and get what they want. There's this idea that she'd walk all over him, but he's a leader of his own right. They both are too loud and too bossy.

And she LIKES him and it's not a high stakes thing! It's just a silly crush on a stupid boy and it's not the be all end all of her life like Helga's feelings for Arnold. It's embarrassing, sure, but it doesn't define her! And he enjoys teasing her about it (as evidenced in Egg Story) in a way that isn't cruel, but just... a tug of the pigtails, maybe? But he also has no idea what to DO with her feelings because he's only just beginning to think about girls in a romantic way. And Rhonda is intimidating in that regard! Pretty and popular and kind of a snot and practically otherworldly.

Which is why Patty is so much easier as a first love - because they're similar and it doesn't HAVE to be about romance, just friendship and I'm not saying that isn't a good foundation - friendship and comfort is a GREAT foundation for a relationship. Harold/Patty could be great!

But it's not my OTP! It's too easy to be my OTP. I like H/R because it'll be a balancing act and yet they have roots together - they KNOW each other and always have. There's already an intimacy built between the kids at PS 118 because they've literally been together since PRESCHOOL.

Ugh, I'm just rambling now.

I just want them to smooch face forever. FOREVER. And when they hook up in high school they both assume it'll just be a stupid two week fling, but then it just... doesn't end? They just keep going? Because, it's easier than they thought and hotter than they expected and OH NO THEY'RE IN LOVE HOW DID THAT HAPPEN?!
