Sophie. You are my best friend, my lover, and my rock. Your kindness and unconditional love have helped and guided me through the good times and the bad. And today, as we join our lives together before our family, and our friends, and our God.. I want you to know that I will always be by your side, ready to share in every success, and every failure. And I promise to faithfully love, trust, and respect you, from this day forward.
Caught up on Sophie’s storyline on Corrie. Can someone write me a fanfic where Sian comes back and finds out it was all Ryan’s fault then proceeds to rage at him?
“I can’t wait to marry you, Sophie Webster.”
Woah Sian is now living with Chloe. I hate Corrie.
DAY 7: Your favorite Sophie and Sian scene, pre-relationship.
Okay, I know this is a really weird scene to pick since it isn’t exclusively Sophie and Sian. But hear me out.
Remember in the episode after Sophie kisses Sian for the first time? Sian comes back from Southport and they sit on a sofa and talk about what happened. Sian says she’s never even thought about Sophie romantically before, and Sophie says “I don’t believe you.”
Now, I was with Sian for a long time. I was like “No, Sian’s never shown ANY signs of liking Sophie.” Until I watched their storyline over again and realized that Sian was actually really obvious in her feelings. This is the first scene where you really start thinking, “Hmmmmm.” She leaves her boyfriend, her first day back in Weatherfield, to comfort Sophie. Leaves in the middle of foreplay.
Ohhh, the signs. And after this scene it just gets more and more obvious that Sian, though she doesn’t even know it herself yet, loves Sophie as more than just a friend.
Remember when they were written so well? Sigh… still haven’t watched their end.
The past couple days I have been watching old Sophie and Sian scenes from back a year ago, and I’m reminded how much I love them. I have been watching Corrie for almost five plus years now, and not once did I find myself attached to any storyline as much as I was with theirs. Every line seems to be rushed, and within the first date everyone was “in love” or living with each other. It was the same old soap lines, but when Sophie and Sian started to come together you could tell the writers wanted to do something special with them. Their struggles, and their happy cute moments. Everything about that line made me love it for how realistic it was. They didn’t fall in love with each other after that first kiss. It was what they always had. You could tell from previous episodes. It was perfectly strung out, and things fell into place that had to happen to make the good come later. When I found about about Amber’s return, I was angry like most fans were. It was out of the blue and for the sake of “ratings”. It took away from the wonderful storyline that was already being told and thrown in to make it sloppy. By that time, I was watching episodes and I was like “Whatever happened to Amber anyway?” It seemed that even Dev didn’t care to talk about his own daughter to his “new family” he was obsessed about creating. Then she randomly shows up on the street, and it was like ‘What the? Where did you come from?’ Then Sophie and Amber’s kiss was thrown together, and it was something that Sophie wouldn’t do because she loved Sian too much. In the “Sophie and Sian reality” it wouldn’t. It did in the “Coronation Street reality” which is the terrible things about soaps. They like to soak up the drama, and ruin wonderful lines. When Sacha left, they could have closed the line with her wanting to leave or make some kind of wonderful ending to the storyline but they had to take it to a different turn. I haven’t watched any current episodes since summer because part of me doesn’t want this line to end. I want to stay in the old days where Sopian are adorable and cute with each other during their hard times and their good times. I’m not sure when I’m actually going to sit down and watch what’s left. It’s already January and I’m five months behind. Gesh that’s a lot of garbage in between to catch up on too. Lines I could care less about since no other storyline has attracted my attention as much as this one has. However, I could never fully quit watching this show since it’s a lot better than most American soaps. Minus Audrey’s new boyfriend Mark. That was interesting. It didn’t mush. They didn’t have a lot of chemistry like Brooke and Sacha. That’s the final thing that I have to say about this line too is that they take their friendship off screen, and they are adorable.
This turned out longer than I thought it would be, but I felt like getting my why ‘I love Sophie/Sian’ out there. I will miss them, but at least there’s youtube to keep me occupied with old scenes of when Corrie took time to develop a real storyline with heart.
