I mean, even though Odyssey time is a little messed up, I'm pretty sure they are different ages and it would just be weird.

Yeah, I agree, and I don't really think they should push it too much with the childhood friend romance thing. (Although they're not really "friends", at least from a Doylist perspective, if they've never actually talked with each other or been in a single episode with one another at the same time.) Like...Lucy gets married to Jack, the first boy she ever interacts with on the show. Mandy marries Trent, with whom she establishes a friendship in middle school. There are quite a few years between those two couples in-universe and there are naturally thousands of other students we don't hear who will date and marry outside of Odyssey, but like...the child cast is still relatively small and people already ship Jared, Alex, Liz, and Sarah around, so I'm not really sure about shipping more child characters together with friends they might have met in elementary/middle school.Didi wrote:I think they could be a couple but I think AIO is focusing too much on couples right now.
Especially when we have had ship tease a-plenty (unless, of course, I'm wearing my shipper goggles, which I could very well be) between Barrett and Priscilla, Matthew and Emily, Buck and Emily, and Buck and Jules (among others); Wooton and Penny just got married; Connie's 'first love' came back and they briefly teased them together...if Kelly or Grady get together with someone, I hope it's someone whom we've never met before. (Sort of like Mitch and Maureen, really.)
(Dunno if I've ever mentioned this outside of the one fanfic I wrote, but you know what relationship I want to see? Kelly and Buck. Not romantically, but like...two broken birds have a lot in common and form a friendship based on mutual trust and sketchy pasts. Shut up and take my money, Focus!)
I like the idea, and your right TigerSgadow that is not that weird. I know a real life couple like that!!TigerShadow wrote:Mrs. Washington states in "Chip Off the Shoulder" that Kelly is 10. Grady's probably about 9 or 10, though. That's not that weird. At the age they'd be dating, it'd be like, a junior in high school dating a sophomore, which is neither unheard of nor unhealthy.
I think this a cute idea!!
