No One Writes Songs About the Ones That Come Easy

And other LoVe lessons from Veronica Mars the TV show and Veronica Mars the movie. SPOILER ALERT!

A long time ago, I used to be friends with this super cool girl Veronica Mars from Neptune. She was smart and salty, and she solved crimes. She would do anything for her very few friends, and they would do the same for her—all she had to do was cock her head and say hey with that infamous small smile. She looked dainty and harmless, but you did not want to be on her bad side.

This was about 10 years ago and there weren't a lot of girls like her on TV. She embodied girl power in the coolest way, without the moral lesson of the story underlined, boldfaced, and highlighted in Pantone number preachy.

Veronica Mars is the last girl on earth (or, TV land) who would ever be defined by a guy, but it cannot be denied that her relationship with Logan Echolls was one of the best things about the show. Their story was, as Logan would say, epic. "Spanning years and continents, lives ruined, blood shed." (This is mostly accurate.) Maybe a relationship shouldn't be that hard, but you know, "no one writes songs about the ones that come easy."

Sometimes there's more to the guy who you just can't stand... Logan started out as Veronica's boyfriend's best friend and Veronica's dead best friend's boyfriend. Complicated, yes. He was only supposed to be the "obligatory psychotic jackass," but his chemistry with Veronica was just insane.

Sometimes he's the guy who'll sweep you off your feet. So from "obligatory psychotic jackass," Logan became Veronica's big love.

The right guy for you is your kind of smart and funny. I'll never forget what Candy EIC Marla wrote in an ed's note about the right guy being not just smart and funny—but your kind of smart and funny. Logan and Veronica banter like no other.

Fate has a sense of humor. I know this is scripted TV, but hasn't something like this happened to you or someone you know?

Every relationship has its ups and downs. Granted, Veronica and Logan's were extremes that would have been very exhausting in real life.

Sometimes a break is just what you need. I've lost count of how many times Logan and Veronica have broken up, but somehow they always come back to each other.

Don't bother with something not good just because it's something. After Logan came Piz. He's a good guy—nice, funny, and dependable. He just wasn't the best guy for Veronica. She needs someone who can match and compliment her intensity. Wavelength matters, remember?

Real connection doesn't just evaporate even if you wish it with all your might. When the show ended, Veronica vowed to cut ties with Logan. She was true to her word until the movie came along and Logan called her to help him clear his name. She came to his aid, never mind that she had distanced herself from all detective work.

Silence can be comfortable with the right person. So maybe this scene from the movie isn't totally comfortable silence (more like super charged), but you get it.

When it's meant to be, it's meant to be. Logan and Veronica have the best ship name of all time: LoVe.
