^ Too true! It's the same with Alan Gray, I guess. Expect the unexpected...
Although, who do you like better? I like Alan, but I like Cary better, because his pranks are more my style: secretly done and clever, I think, as opposed to fake vomit and whatever else. (Like the 'While you were out: Liz called.' thing in 'Stacey and the Haunted Masquerade.' Mean, yes, but clever, in my opinion.)
Comparing those two to the established boyfriends (Let's forget FF for a moment and Claudia/Alan): I like Alan and Cary wayyyy better than Logan and most of the BSC Boyfriends. I know they were 'cool' and 'hunky,' but I always found them boring- too serious for their age.
... Is there a 'Guys of the BSC' discussion anywhere? Or a poll? I'm derailing this thread.

I was absolutely convinced that Kristy and Cary were going to kiss at the end of Kristy Power!. Or something like that. They had a moment. I was rather disappointed when it didn't happen. But I could definitely see that happening. I like them because when they do get along, they REALLY do get along. Their minds work in the same way.
Even with the everything in the FF books, I don't really see Cary and Mary Anne as a romantic couple. I don't see MA going for him at all. I could see him with Abby, though.

^ I thought I was the only one! I really expected that something would happen by the end of that FF between them, and I was so sad when it didn't. Oh, well.
Re-reading some of the Cary-heavy books, I don't they hated each other *that* much. They weren't exactly friends, but they did respect each other, and I think that if they got to know each other beyond the 'the bossy club president' and 'the sneaky prank-puller' thing, there would be a good chance for a relationship there.
... I'm thinking way too much about this. I can't believe I'm so addicted to the BSC again.
^ ;D Laughing at the Tom Sawyer comparison because a kid who liked me when I was about 14 looked exactly like Tom and we called him "Tom Sawyer". ;D I don't think Cary and Kristy are anything alike - I think that Cary has a mean streak and get kind of a "psycho" vibe from him. Again, this is just my perception and not sure where I get it from.

I wrote a fanfic years ago where Cary went to a mental hospital. Maybe you read that. Though I don't remember if it was ever confirmed that he went or he was just very consistent in saying it....
Kristy might have been cute with Logan. They have a lot in common, and she would have the really strong personality to deal with Logan's habit of trying to control people. But he might have been too sensitive for her, whereas Alan Gray or Cary? Not so much.
