Sonny and Brenda

Long ago, there were two forces of nature who came into direct contact on the docks of Port Charles, NY. Dimples flashed, flirting began, a little bit of a temper flared but what really happened was, a spark turned into a flame that very day. All across the country from little girls, to teenagers, and grown adult women, we all caught the fire of what was to begin. The development of the last ABCD supercouple.

Sonny and Brenda were really not ever together for a long time. They were always broken apart only to be brought back together again. The wonderful gift we were given, during our S&B ride, was the gift of watching them slowly fall in love with each other and as they did, we did. It was a story that has taken almost 20 years to play out. Our ride is still not over by any means, nor will it ever be finished. It doesn’t matter who Sonny is with, who he says he loves or whatever backstory may be written or rewritten. Sonny and Brenda are meant to overcome their obstacles, they are meant to find their way through the rain and be together again.

The thing about Sonny and Brenda is this, they were meant to be. Whether it is forever or for just a few moments at a time, they were written as soulmates in every sense of the word. Sometimes soulmates are separated because of timing or circumstances. This time the circumstances were troubling, sad and heartbreaking. Choices by each of them were made. Some choices were made for the good of someone else, like Alec, or were bad choices like siding with Carly.

I know that I am still quite sad with the fact that Brenda had to leave and in the way she left. I am also still angry at how Sonny behaved from mid-April on thru now. There were high hopes for a marriage, a happy, fun, sexy and joint marriage. I don’t see how they couldn’t have gone in a different direction with them. No matter what, whether Vanessa stayed, left or will return, the story could have been written with care, class, compassion and penned with love. But, it just wasn’t and we, the fans, were left with a huge void, lots of questions and cannot accept Sonny with anyone else at this point. For anyone to feel that we should accept Sonny with someone else at this point is barking up the wrong set of trees. It’s too soon, there’s no mention of divorce, no remorse by Sonny, there’s no discussion about Sonny taking his meds or going to therapy.

I think about soulmates and I think about their past, present and future, just like the rings. I think they need to complete each stage of their existence, learn what they need to about themselves and complete each task in their lives to get it right. They certainly don’t need to make any more of the same mistakes when they get together again. Sonny must take his meds and he must discover about himself what his triggers are. Brenda must overcome her insecurities and become the strong woman we know she can be. Once they complete their tasks separately, they will be able to come together again. I just pray we have a writer with heart, soul & compassion when that time comes.

To me Sonny and Brenda are:

Twin Flame Soulmates
This is the most popular type of soulmate. There is usually one twin flame soulmate for each of us. Twin flame soulmates have spent multiple lifetimes together in past lives. There is incredible chemistry and attraction towards each other. They “complete” each other and only few lucky people are able to find their twin flame soulmate. Twin flame soulmates, if separated, usually suffer enormous pain.

They were not only created that way, but how Vanessa and Maurice are with each other leads me to believe they are this in real life:

Twin Soulmates
These types of soulmate are your closest friends or a person whom you really click with. According to those who believe in reincarnation, you have already met them in a past life, and in this life you are continuing the relationship. There is an emotional bond between these soulmates and each is able to sense the feelings of each other..

Sonny and Brenda are the last Supercouple. I have yet to see another since they first came together. the glory days of soaps are over, sadly. The days of Luke & Laura, Frisco & Felicia & Sonny & Brenda are over. The soaps are ending and a new incarnation of them should show up on the internet in January and beyond. There is a chance that S&B will ride off into the sunset together. We have been promised this repeatedly. We believe this. We just need to continue to hold on to hope and be positive.

So many crazy things are happening behind the scenes. We found out Friday night that Lexi Ainsworth was let go and TPTB were taking Kristina into a different direction instead of working with the talent they have and finding a great story for her, they are going into a superficial direction to make Kristina fit into a story. It’s sad. I wish Lexi luck and thank her for all her years as Kristina. She is a sweet and lovely person who has a bright future ahead of her. But, just know changes are happening constantly behind the scenes.. Nothing is how it seems.

I’m not liking the show at all right now & am having a hard time talking about it. The  changes will make it worse I’m for all of us who continue to watch & talk about the show. I just hope that with the changes they leave the door open for Vanessa to return and to continue the story with Maurice. The story needs some closure, it needs to make sense.

Back to Sonny and Brenda, my muses for so many years. They are the couple who captured my heart, feed my dreams and inspired many stories… They always will because they are natural, organic and they not only have a spark between them, they have a flame that fed a fire in all of us. We keep coming back, we keep having hope that drives other fanbases crazy. We stick together & have forged great friendships. We are genuinely lucky. We have had the same two people portray our couple on and off for almost 20 years. No substitutions for us… Always the real deal. Only supercouples can say that. No one has yet recast Luke and Laura or even Frisco & Felicia in that way. Perhaps there was a stand in when someone was sick or to finish an arc, but never as together in the couple.

Some fanbases have no choice but to accept a recast of a fave. If we were given a choice to continue with Sonny and Brenda, but with a recast or not to continue with them at all, I think our fanbase would choose not to continue with S&B. I think that sets us apart. We don’t just accept what is thrown at us… I’m not digging at others because I obviously am not a part of some other fanbases but looking at how many times Carly was recast and how the SCummers all accepted each Carly is ridiculous! All to say that S&C are still together. RME

I’d rather S&B be apart and KNOW they belong together when time is right & to know that my original loves will portray them is enough for me. I can wait. I can be patient, I can know in my heart down the line things will be made right. It’s just too bad we all have to wade through the sea of nonsense and 2 person scenes until we get our wish granted again, probably for the final time.

 

We just need to keep the faith, stick together and have comfort in what we have had through the years. It’s more than what a lot of others have. No, we don’t deserve what just happened with our couple BUT we were given so much last year.

This is a season of thanks coming up. I am thankful for Sonny and Brenda, Maurice & Vanessa, the forum, Twitter, my #Team and all my friends who read my blogs about serious things, fun things and sometimes not much at all. All I know is that S&B/M&V/GH brought us all together… I wouldn’t change much, maybe just the writing. (LOL)

TTFN xoxo~Ro

  1. Ro,
    You continue to blow me away with every blog you write so much so that sometimes I swear you are in my head taking notes, or in my heart feeling the love I have for these two characters, actors, friends, soulmates. Thank you for keeping the flame alive.

  2. Another great blog Ro! It has been quite a ride for us S&B fans, but I agree that no matter what we are handed, we just have to believe and stick together because in my heart they are endgame & irreplaceable. They will find their way back together, as they always do, no matter the time or distance apart! There hasn’t & will never be another couple like them for me.. S&B Forever!!

  3. Ro once again you say it all. We are a strong fanbase who holds on despite everything. It’s very hard right now and it seems there is little light at the end of the tunnel but we hold onto the S&B endgame bus together. We love S&B and Mo and Vanessa. They are the last supercouple of daytime and their story is unmatched. Mo and Vanessa are acting soulmates and S&B are soulmates. That will never change! S&B always!!
