Obstacles:The Love between Phoebe and Cole | FanFiction
Where, btw, Phoebe saw and her first reaction was Cole! .. is completely over Cole and trying to rebuild her trust in love and relationships and. Clay was Phoebe's ex-boyfriend who came to San Francisco to get her to get Prue Their relationship quickly turns more bitter as Jason turns out to be a more strict Cole, even P. Russell's seductee, Anton, so that she could trust Love again. Their relationship was a long running story arc in the series and was a major Maggie thinks she can trust him because, unlike her sisters, she.
Phoebe hears Cole's voice call to her on the wind, and in the season finale, "Witch Way Now? Phoebe visits him there, insisting to him that he move on to his afterlife. After she leaves, he accidentally discovers he can acquire the powers of other demons vanquished there. He becomes powerful enough to kill the beast that consumes the essence of those vanquished there and, finally, to escape. Once back in the world, he saves the sisters' lives from a witch hunter.
During "Siren Song," he saves a young woman named Mellisa, revealed to be a future Whitelighter from death in an attempt to impress Phoebe and fails. When he tries to confront the Siren, she tries to kill him, but his powers allow him to survive, though he falls under her control.
Under this influence, he tries to strangle Phoebe to death, but Leo vanquishes the Siren with Piper's powers, breaking her hold over him. Phoebe nearly dies, but Piper manages to heal her. As a result, Cole finally understands the threat he poses to Phoebe and promises to stop using his powers, but falls to temptation again when confronted by a sleezy landlord.
In "Sympathy for the Demon", Cole is taunted by the spirit of the demon Barbas Billy Drago who convinces Cole to use a power-stripping potion and acquires Cole's powers, becoming corporeal. I won't loose you too so if that means I have to fight a few extra demons along the way to keep that from happening bring them on. Here Cole let us vanquish half of him for me and I can't even muster a simple yes to marriage.
I cannot blindly accept that he would allow himself to be possessed by the Source and then lie to Phoebe about it. The Cole I knew would have warned her and either offered to let her vanquish him then and there or even found a way to commit suicide. Or he would have begged her to find away to save him from the Source with good magic.
Not to mention that complete and total garbage that he would ever even consider the possibility of having Phoebe turn evil with him. He already had a golden opportunity for that and firmly shouted, no I won't do it. Evil Phoebe "Isn't that the way you want me?
That isn't what I want. That's not the way I want for us to be. There is no such thing as evil love Phoebe. Our only chance to preserve our love is if both of us are good. He was just a phase that I'm over now. She also would have never just stood by dry eyed shooting glaring daggers into the heart of the man she once claimed she was so in love with while he wept like the lost little innocent boy he was all along.
All the while taking evil back into himself to save she and her sisters. That Phoebe and that Piper were vicious,cruel, evil, ungrateful, hypocritical, self righteous monsters, and imposters.
In fact I think they should now be renamed because they aren't the same characters we started with. Also forgive me but for the reasons I've stated above I will never accept that Cole and Phoebe were doomed from the start. I will also never believe they weren't soul mates or meant to be.
The two I saw on the air the third season of Charmed and the begining of the fourth sure were in my book perhaps even more so than Leo or Piper. I remember thinking it is realy sad that no one not even Leo himself is suggesting that he and Piper should kiss to get her's back.
Phoebe told Piper to let her love for cooking do it. Isn't that sad that someone would be more inspired by pots and pans than her husband? Don't get me wrong I really like Piper and Leo and root for them too but how pathetic on the writer's parts.
This was just one more sign to me though about how powerful Phoebe's passion and connection to Cole really was. I will concede that in season Five they both turned into a more nightmarish couple but then again no one will ever make me accept that either Source Cole or Evil Powers Cole was the real Cole. He was just as much an imposter as I believe the girls were. But that IMHO is what happens when a show willfully turns it's back on established character history and story continuity in hot pursuit of the currently desired pubescent male demograhic.
Also in my opinion the current Charmed is the dictionary definiton of what happens when producers loose all sight of a television show's ability to be true art and instead begin to see it only as a golden opportunity make a quick buck by turning the show into an hour long Victoria's Secret advertisement. What makes this so personally sad to me is that is was once such a gem.
It blended humor, fantasy, romance, drama, and some really deep themes to ponder in an entertaining way. It was truly character driven and truly charming. It was my second favorite show of all time next to HTLJ.
Now it seems the characters are shaped to fit the plot and not vice versa and to me it is anything but "charming. My own personal fantasy theory is that season 4. I am not asking anyone to share my assesment or feelings.
I am just simply asking for some sympathy for how we Phoebe and Cole fans feel when we hear things like: A stage she had to outgrow. Now she is a mature divorcee ready to move on with her life. I respectfully disagree with Alyssa here on a number of levels. She has played Phoebe wonderfully and is a gifted actress but I think she maybe practicing a little revisionist history in an understandable attempt to defend her character and justify the actions of the show against Cole.
I say understandable because she is a star and a producer and it is natural for her to be a cheerleader for the show, to the bitter end.
Phoebe Cole Forever | FanFiction
I'm sorry Alyssa but even though I think I know why you said it, I still think it is a very weak argument and in away very dismissive of how this might sound to some of us Phoebe and Cole fans. Kind of on par with Shannen calling Charmed a show for the kiddies.
Also I kind of laughed at the notion that Phoebe has matured. I know a number of us who feel she has regressed to her bar hopping overly promiscous stage in a really sad attempt to recapture her youth. It is natural for characters to grow and evolve, to me, however, it isn't desirable to "devolve" which in what my opinion Phoebe has done.
Then there was this gem from a former Charmed actor: He's out of her life now. She's in love with my character now. The Cole and Phoebe fans need to get a real life, accept this, and move on.
Okay here is a guy who admittedly never saw a Phoebe and Cole episode in his life. Again no disrespect but I'm just supposed to blindly except his view over mine when I can quote their dialouge in Season Three through 4.
Okay obsessed I know but when you have no new episodes to watch there is nothing else to do but memorize the old scenes. I think I know what Cole and Phoebe's relationship really was just a tad better than him.
Phoebe and Piper saved him the next day by freezing the bullet just beofre he was shot. Phoebe later had a premontion of the chandelier at the Halliwell Manor falling onto Miles, killing him and had to save him again. She then had another premonition of him falling off his balcony and had to save him yet again.
Phoebe was instantly attracted to him when they first saw each other, but panicked after she discovered that he was the new boss of the Bay Mirror which Phoebe writes a popular advice column for. Their relationship quickly turns more bitter as Jason turns out to be a more strict boss than Phoebe was used to with Elise. However, later Phoebe wrote an article about finding love over the internet, she gets into contact with "cyrano73" using an instant messanger, and seems to like him, she later decides to meet him in person, who turns out to be Jason, scared of asking Phoebe out incase she rejected him, who made sure she liked his personality first, Phoebe agreed to start dating.
The two were incredibly attracted to each other, going as far to have sex in Phoebe's office during work hours Charrrmed!
