[Theme of the Month] Happily never after
With Valentine’s Day around the corner, it’s the perfect time of year to watch a rom-com or romance. Love and romance are never lacking in dramas and while I love a good happy ending, I often find myself thinking about the star-crossed lovers who didn’t get a happily ever after. For every OTP that rides off into the sunset together, there’s another couple that fate decides to keep apart.
Did your hero or heroine fall victim to the Truck of Doom? Were you rooting for the second lead? Was there a time travel plot? I’ve learned that if I watch a drama involving time travel, I need to steel myself and not get too emotionally invested in the lead couple, because no matter how strong your love is, there are times when love can’t conquer all.
Which happily never afters touched you the most? Tell us about the happily never after that broke your heart or remained with you long after the drama ended.
