I am so loving Kyle and Fish on One Life to Live. This story hits so many of my favorite tropes it isn't even funny. Toss in the brother of Chris Evans and I am a very happy girl. Honestly Brett Claywell and Scott Evans are so good together it isn't even funny. I just want to watch them all them time. I can't wait to see what comes next (as we surely move into the even more angsty part of the story.) I love my soap angst. It's always so delicious.

I do have a tiny bit of an (probably) unpopular opinion I don't want Fish's parents to accept him. I want them to be horrible and mean and say things like "You aren't our son." It will hurt terribly but I feel like it's necessary. I don't want them to be crazy evil (no attempted murders or mysterious Iraqi girls) just intolerant. One, it gives Fish a lot of goodwill. He's certainly gotten some of it over the past few days but if he comes out to them and his parents accept him then why was he so worried. Also I feel like it's real. It sucks but it does happen. Maybe I'm just the kind of person who wants her favorite characters to suffer a lot but I just like the idea of Fish losing his parents. I would almost like him to come out fully expecting it because he decides that the price was too high to stay in the closet. They aren't worth lying to. I'm probably the only person who feels this way but I do. The possibility of drama is too high!

I too want crazy-ass but also plausible (AKA not trying to get Iraqi refugees to marry him) homophobia from the parental units. But nice and deliciously complicated. I get the feeling Fish and his parents have been dealing with this "issue" together for his whole life, and I want his freaked-outness to be justified. I'm really, really looking forward to how he deals with his parents in town now that he's in the process of coming out to himself and his friends.

But I want REALLY FUCKED UP parental units, in the meantime.

(and not just because Ive had bad, bad thoughts about Fish at some gay reeducation camp when he was in middle/high school where his parents sent him and he ended up having his first real boy/boy experience.

But, yeah. I want ANGST w/ the parental units in town, and I want them to be a seriously fucked up barrier for him.

I keep toying with the idea that his parents totally realized there was something up with Kyle in college (they had to have visited at least once and met him) and in an offhand way drove Fish even further into the closet. Of course this has to come out at some point, all to further the cause of ANGST. I have faith that no Iraqi refugees will show up. Everything in this story has been handled realistically so far I think they can do this realistically too.
