I've been on a Dawson's Creek kick for quite a while now, and it has been such a blast blowing through each season. I get so wrapped up in this little show that I have to pull myself back to reality and tell myself that Capeside, MA does not really exist, so I need to get off of Travelocity.com and quit planning a trip up there.
In my mind, it does exist and all of my favorite people are still living there. Dawson, Joey, Pacey, Jenn, Gran, Jack and the rest.
There is something about this show that drives me crazy, though. It's the love triangle between Dawson, Joey and Pacey. Now, it's not the actual triangle that makes me bananas, it's my stance on the whole thing. One minute, I'm rooting for Dawson and the next minute, I'm pulling for Pacey. Basically, I am the mind of Joey Potter.
First you have Dawson. They are soul mates. They know each and every little thing about the other, are best friends, and do not know and can not fathom life outside of the other. Dawson puts everyone before himself and is the ultimate romantic. I love how dreamy he makes everything seem. He is an absolute idealist and to him, nothing is out of his reach. He is the definition of dependability.
Then you have Pacey. He's an adventure. He says what he thinks and is the life of the party. He is one giant mystery and once you think you have him figured out, he does something to surprise you. When he falls in love, he jumps in full force and there's no looking back. He is ornery, hilarious and super sweet - but a different sweet than Dawson.
Joey seems to be perfect with each of them, but for totally different reasons.
I am currently in the middle of season 4, and just when I thought I had settled on Pacey being "the one" for Joey, Dawson did something so sweet that it made me cry. Yes, I cry over decade old teen dramas. It's the Dawson in me.
So, fellow Creekers, what are your thoughts? Who (regardless of what happened in the finale) do YOU think belongs with Joey Potter? Dawson - Pacey.
Please. I need some "Creek Talk" in my life. I'm about to make Husby crazy with it.
