If it ships, it fits! Think Jennie is a match made in heaven? Think Jason and Tasha are meant to be? Here's where to discuss your OTP!

Why are we humans so obsessed with romantic love? Why does it fill our movies, our songs, our thoughts? It seems obvious. After all, it excites, it brings some of the most passionate, powerful emotions we can feel. We identify with love. For we have experienced it, or will experience it.
But, when we think on romantic love, we think on something that we do not know for certain shall be carried into the afterlife. Shall we experience passion for one particular, special human being there? Or shall our unity as souls adoring God in Heaven bring us so utterly together all romantic love ceases forever?
We don't know.
Personally, I hate the thought of amour ceasing to exist.
One of my best friends, an intelligent cousin of mine, compared it to a child being talked to about marital intimacy as he or she is playing. Suppose he or she asked "Can I play with my toys while I'm doing all that?"
The parent would reply, "Err, I guess you could, but I doubt you'd want to."
In any case, for better or worse, our thoughts are destined to contemplate love a lot. And in our search for love, our experimenting, and wondering, we meet many different individuals who tantalize us with the thought of what might happen if only...
Jason Whittaker. I guess it’s because he’s a government agent AIO has given him more love attachment than any other character. He's been drifting. It started with Tasha...
Why is it most love novels end with the first candidate we met the winner, no matter how many rivals we met later? Perhaps because our emotional attachment goes out to them, and they are the one we first start dreaming and planning will get the victory. In any case, it's almost destined, in fiction, for the first suitor onscreen to be the last one standing. Tasha's a cool girl. She's the fast moving, no-bunk government agent girl in love. I always enjoy Tasha's scenes with Jason. They work together. Yet, they are now only friends. It would be clean, simple, and traditional for Tasha to end up at the altar with Jason. On the other hand, it would also be the redundancy of wishful thinking. In the end, the first go-around is just the first go around. The reality is, it tends to find a lot of tries to find a matching puzzle piece.
Connie. Now, how did she get into this? Well, she's in everything, I guess. I've come across more than one online wish-on-a-star that Connie would marry Jason. Connie, after all, for one episode, did find Jason attractive. Of course, the complication arises that Whit, in a sense, is Connie's adoptive Father. And with Jason being his son and all… However, this fatherhood, is, in the end, an honorary title. But, really. Connie suddenly re-developing a Jason-longing after it's been forgotten, except by some fans, for whole albums? No, thank you.
The final option... Monica Stone. Ohhhh yeah. The lady with a gun who doesn't like guns. A marauder who wanted to help the world. A woman who met Jason to steal from him, and fell in love with him.
One of many tittling aspects of their relationship is it is uncertain just when the heck it started. Just how long did Monica fake it? When did real emotion creep into her thoughts? Did attraction sneak up on her the first time she saw Jason? When did she begin to truly care about him? All we can do is listen and guess.
Their flirtation is delightful, and I found it much more grabbing and enjoyable than Jason and Tasha’s relationship, amazing as it was. We don’t know if Monica became Christian, but we can assume. It seemed that was one of the things we didn’t get to see because there was only so much AIO could show. Who knows? Perhaps Monica accepted Jesus with Jason. Perhaps they’re incredibly close.
But does the AIO team care? The storyline’s been a motionless, forgotten rock for years. I fear Monica is one of the characters AIO has decided to leave at the roadside and look away from.
Sad. But the purpose of speculations like this isn’t to see guess what will happen, it’s to wonder. What could happen to Jason? What, dare we imagine, is going on in his private life? Surely he hasn’t forgotten a daredevil who attempted to seduce him and rob him… and fell in love with him.
Love holds us. It makes us think upon emotions, hearts, and souls. Or, for some of us, it just touches us and makes us laugh and hope. Or it disgusts us. Whatever the case, it’s not something we can ignore.
I doubt, if we were to know the truth, Jason is ignoring it.
Perhaps romantic love is one of the greatest tastes we can have the eternal love of Heaven. Perhaps every kiss has a spiritual meaning we have not yet begun to discover. Perhaps Juliet’s whispers, perhaps Elisabeth’s unexpected desire for Mr. Darcey, perhaps Eowun’s yearning… all speak of a celestial magic. Perhaps the sensations of love and Gods plan for it, perhaps… surely… there’s a reason none of us can ignore passion.
Or maybe people are just dumb.
In any case… let’s talk it up!
“What do you think love is, Chuck?”

I love reading long posts- thank you PF:)
Jason?? Out of the 3 people you talked about, my hope is for Connie. I mean, Monica and Tasha are past characters and havent been on the show or mentioned for years. Connie and Jason are old friends, and have been through a lot together. But i dont think the writers would start up a relationship between them right now, because they have other things to write about. They all ready have Penny and Wooton to worry about, they dont need to worry about Connie and Jason. But maybe, just maybe, we can hope for the future

You little hopeless romantic, you!;) I must admit, I did enjoy reading this...you have a way with words, Pound Foolish.
Gahh...I've always had a great concern for what will happen in Jason's future and love life. Sometimes I've wondered what he and Connie would be like together. But honestly- out of all the woman you mentioned, I, too, think it would have been beautiful if Monica stayed around and became a Christian, then she and Jason develop a real, true relationship again. But then again, that probably ain't ever happenin'...sooo...*sighs*
Tue Aug 07, 2012 6:42 pm
I'm a hopeless romantic, dear? Talk about the pot calling...
Thank you, prez. I do my best for you guys. =P
And what did you MEAN about it being longer than the last book you read!? I'm NEVER too long! Well... I mean, not compared to a presidential acceptation speech...
Jason+Monica almostt almost definitely won't happen. But it SHOULD!
Tue Aug 07, 2012 6:45 pm
Well, I never said I wasn't
a hopeless romantic, smarty pants! =P And YES! The should! AMEN! AMEN! AMEN! I think I shall go message FOTF...

Fantastic post, PF! It went much deeper than I thought it would! And the Peanuts quote! Wow.
I think that Tasha would be best for Jason. As Grady once said, "Maybe she'll become a Christian after you get married!" Haha, I'm just kidding. Of course we shouldn't marry unbelievers. But I want Tasha to just hurry up and become a Christian already so she can steal Jason's heart again!
Monica would be another great choice. Their flirtations were indeed, fun to listen to. But I just can't see that ever happening. She was a major villian, after all. But I guess God can change anyone's heart.
As for Connie, no. Just no.
Mon Aug 13, 2012 9:28 pm
Vote! I think I covered everything.
Mon Aug 13, 2012 9:36 pm
He shoud Die???? What? Haha
Mon Aug 13, 2012 10:05 pm
I was trying to give a full rang of options for people to choose from.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 12:03 pm
Maybe, I'm not sure. I kinda think he should, but only if it's not Connie or Monica or Tasha.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 12:19 pm
So that leaves Miley Cyrus... and you.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 12:25 pm
Well, Miley is enganged, and she also just got a horrible haircut. As for my sister, no.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 2:51 pm
Hmm... I voted It Depends and Maybe. Those seemed like the logical choices, because I'm not incredibly keen on the idea like all female Odyssey fans are, but I wouldn't mind it if he got married to the right person.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 8:45 pm
As for Miley Cyrus, why would he want to marry someone with an atrocious haircut?
Monica Stone could become a Christian...or he finds a fellow missionary friend.
Tue Aug 14, 2012 9:24 pm
Vote vote vote!
Tue Aug 14, 2012 10:20 pm
I voted 'it depends' and 'He should get engaged'. I think Jason was a more interesting character when he was paired with Tosha and Monica. However, I doubt AiO will do anything for a while, seeing as how they didn't want continued romantic interest between Connie and Mitch.

If Jason did get married, I wouldn't want them to bring in a new character. It would have to be Monica, Amy, Tasha, or Connie, in my opinion. I'm tired of AIO bringing in new fiancees, to be honest.
Sun Sep 09, 2012 5:39 pm
I LOVED Amy!! I really wish Jason would have married her (or Tasha if she became a Christian).
I never thought of Jason and Connie together. What makes you think they would be a good couple? Are there any specific episodes?
Sat Nov 24, 2012 3:16 pm
I think he should marry Connie, then adopt Buck!
Sun Nov 25, 2012 12:44 pm
Monica should become a Christian in jail, then come back and marry Jason.
