Lucas Scott (Chad Michael Murray) and Brooke Davis (Sophia Bush) may not have ended up together on One Tree Hill but that has not stopped us from secretly rooting for them. Don’t get us wrong. We were happy to see Lucas marry Peyton and to see Brooke marry Julian. However, that did not stop members of Team Brucas from enjoying this relationship while it lasted. Whether you love sexy hot tub make-outs or the romance of writing 82 letters, Team Brucas will relate to these 11 reasons why we still root for the couple!
1. It’s absolutely adorable the way they play off of each other.
2. Lucas knows how to confess his love.
3. For the most part, they don’t believe in playing games.
4. Every time Lucas calls Brooke “pretty girl,” our hearts melt.
5. Just like when Brooke calls Lucas “boyfriend.”
6. They can be sexy.
7. But they can also be romantic and sweet.
8. They can’t be compared to other couples.
9. Lucas is the one who Brooke would have given up everything for.
But we are still glad Brooke asserted her independence!
10. Brooke always had the approval of Lucas’s mother, Karen (Moira Kelly)!
Karen Roe’s approval is all you need, after all!
11. And this scene where they got back together still makes us cry!
