So here it is our FOTM interview for November with Maham! ;) 당신 may all know her from being very active on this spot, which shows how much she deserves this! Congrats hun <3 1. So Maham, 당신 won! =D Why don’t 당신 start 의해 telling us 더 많이 about you? ;)
"I fell in love with it the moment I saw it."
저기요 guys =)
So starting with the basics, I am Maham, as most of 당신 probably know, I am 17 years old and I live in California.
I am sucker for romance, chocolate, good 책 and of course TV. I don't really have any talents- I can't draw. paint, sing, act, play an instrument, nothing! It's kinda sad at times, but the one thing I take pride in is my 글쓰기 ability and 글쓰기 fanfictions is something I like doing on the side, as many of 당신 Leyton 팬 might know (Too Far Gone). My history on 팬팝 is relatively short since I have been active here for only about 8 months, but its been a lot of fun, and for the past couple of months I have been completely addicted!
This is my first FOTM, and it's really exciting because One 나무, 트리 언덕, 힐 is the one spot that I spent a lot of my time on because of my 사랑 of the show, and each and everyone has been so great to me, that it's been an amazing experience =) 2. Is One 나무, 트리 언덕, 힐 your 가장 좋아하는 tv show ever? If not, which show is it?
Yeah, it is. Even though I haven't been watching it from the beginning, I fell in 사랑 with it the moment I saw it. The characters, the storylines, the couples, they're all amazing. And even though at times I am tempted to kill Mark because of the way a season has been going and what not, in the end it all wraps up to be something worth watching!
3. How did 당신 find out about OTH? And what was the first episode that 당신 watched?
"I finally gave in and watched the pilot."
My 프렌즈 have the biggest hand behind my addiction to One 나무, 트리 Hill. When I started watching OTH, it was in its fourth season, and after every episode, my 프렌즈 would rave about how good the episode was, how much they hated/loved a certain character, and the discussions were never ending. I felt so out of the loop because I had no idea what they were talking about, and after a great deal of persuasion, I finally gave in and watched the pilot. Needless to say, I have been hooked ever since! 4. What is the thing about OTH that makes it different from any other show?
Hmmm...this is a good one. I think I would have to go with the fact that it deals with a lot of the everyday real life problems that other shows often fail to grasp. Especially during the high school years (S1-4) OTH has covered a lot of the topics that teenagers have to go through with everyday- social pressures, jack 나귀, 엉덩이 parents, drug abuse, suicide, falling in love, having your 심장 broken, and the list goes on. And while sometimes the storylines are a little exaggerated, they get the message across and that's what it makes it different and 더 많이 relate-able than most other shows out there.
5. Imagine 당신 can re-write all the OTH seasons. Would 당신 change anything 또는 the show would end up exactly like it is now?
"..it deals with a lot of the everyday real life problems."
Oh 당신 have no idea how tempted I would be to change what happened between 네일리 in season 2, but when I think about the reconciliation that took place in season 3, I won't be able to do it. That reconciliation/finding each other again gave us some of the best 네일리 scenes ever, and that would not have happened if Haley hadn't left (no matter how much I despised her for it).
In fact, I don't think I will change anything, because even though some storylines made me want to throttle Mark, most of the outcomes, at least to me, were worth the pain. 6. “The world 당신 desire can be won. It exists. It is real. It is possible. It is yours”; Season 1 favorites. Character:

It's an absolute honor to be recruited 의해 Duke University. I guess what I have to say to 당신 today is this: where I play basketball, if I play basketball, is no longer a decision for me to make alone. It's a decision that I make with my wife and my family's best interests at heart, and when I do I'll let 당신 all know. My wife couldn't be here today so, I just wanted to say one thing to her: Haley, no matters what happens, we face it together. I promise you, I've never been happier. Everything is gonna be okay.

"I was reminded today in a roundabout way that the most perfect act of 사랑 is sacrifice. It's what Keith did for Karen; burying his feelings for her for all those years so he could be a good friend. I 사랑 당신 Lucas. And I think I have since the first moment we locked eyes and it is going to suck but if what 당신 want is for me to let go then I'm gonna do it. Be happy Luke.

I And 사랑 And 당신 - The Avett Brothers Storyline:
Haley/Nathan/Renee sex & pregnancy 스캔들 and Clay's past with Sara 13. This season doesn’t have Lucas and Peyton, two of the main five characters. Do 당신 think OTH feels like a different show, 또는 it’s still the same?
OTH definitely feels different without the two because obviously they were a huge part of the show for the past six years, but I am not sure its a bad different. I mean, I 사랑 Lucas & Peyton both as characters and as a couple, and coming into the 7th season without them, I wasn't sure what to expect, but to be honest I haven't been disappointed so far (with the exception of 7x11 which was my least 가장 좋아하는 episode of the season). I am always going to miss Lucas & Peyton, but I 사랑 the new characters, especially Clay, and I think after 7 years it isn't the worst idea to try something new!
"I am always going to miss Lucas & Peyton, but I 사랑 the new characters."
And with the consistency with the rating, I think the freshness of this season is doing good with the viewers (I mean we beat GG in ratings like almost every week, and that is such an over hyped/advertised show!) 14. What do 당신 think it’s gonna happen in the future for Brooke & Julian and Nathan & Haley?
I honestly am not sure what's going to happen between Nathan & Haley. Right now they're making it seem like Nathan is headed towards Barcelona and Haley & Jamie are going on tour. I don't know about Haley's tour, but I doubt Nathan will be moving to Barcelona- I think they're setting the stage for a big "Clay comes to the rescue kind of thing".
Personally I am a huge supporter of Haley going to tour because that would be like 키싱 goodbye to the already meager 네일리 scenes we are getting these days. But who knows anything is possible.
And with Taylor coming to town in 7x13 (episode after midseason break), I am sure it's going to stir some interesting 네일리 stuff.
As for Brulian, I don't believe they are over for a second. We see her with him in the hospital where they bring Alex, I am guessing. I think they need a lot of issues they need to fix before they can get back on track. Julian needs to learn to keep his mouth shut, and Brooke needs to learn to trust her man. I am pretty sure Julian will want to help and be there for Alex, because he will partially blame himself for what happened to her, and Brooke will have to come to some sort of understanding with that. But I have no doubt that they will find there way back to each other, and hopefully get a miracle pregnancy out of it? 15. I’m gonna say a word and 당신 say a scene/episode that reminds 당신 of that. Happiness:
6x24- "You're in the NBA?" "I am in the NBA" Angst:
4x16- Battle between Psycho Derek and Brooke & Peyton Tragedy:
3x16- Dan kills Keith Hope:
"The roots are still there, it just takes time. Don't say I never gave 당신 anything." (3x07- 네일리 on the rooftop of Karen's Cafe)
5x12- Lindsay being the one to break of the wedding- with the comet analogy at that! Family:
6x09- Nathan gives up Slamball for his family Mistake:
Nathan not firing Nanny Carrie after her completely off the line behavior (flirting, skinny dipping, and kiss, I mean come one Nate, that was really stupid!) Mark is a freaking idiot (xD):
Brooke telling Julian that she can't have children 16. This 또는 that? High school years 또는 adult:
High School Chris Keller 또는 Miranda:
Chris Keller Brulian 또는 Jeyton:
Brulian <3 Mouth 또는 Millie:
Neither, but for the sake of picking, Mouth Season 2 또는 5:
5 (season 2 was a nightmare, never watched past episode 13) Brucas 또는 Leyton:
Leyton <3 Clay 또는 Quinn:
Clay Julian 또는 Jake:
Oh man this is hard, I 사랑 both, but I think Jake a little bit 더 많이 =) 17. Which season is your favorite? And least? What do 당신 think that could have been done to make that least one better?
For 가장 좋아하는 season its tough tie between 3 and 4, but for the sake of this 질문 I'll go for 4. We had some great 네일리 moments along with the pregnancy, the state championship, Leyton getting together, psycho derek attacks, Nathan trying to dance, Honey grove prom, and of course a reappearance of Chris Keller, could 당신 get any better than this?
It was the perfect ending of their high school career, and almost every storyline was interesting to watch =)
"Could 당신 get any better than this?"
Least favorite, well thats cake, season 2 hands down. For me, it was the most painful season to watch. I stopped watching after 2x13, and mostly just saw the Jeyton scenes after that (the only part of S2 worth watching). Even though I hated what Haley did to Nathan in this season, like I said before, I wouldn't change that because the pain was worth it in the end. But the one thing I would change will be Felix & Ana storyline. I swear, that was such a pointless storyline. Brooke/Felix being 프렌즈 with benefits, Lucas/Ana dating, Ana admitting that she's bi- it was all such a waste, so yeah I would definitely 삭제 that out of season 2 if I had the chance. 18. Imagine you’re Mark for one day. After getting a body-guard to protect 당신 from the 팬 (xD), 당신 can write an episode for this season. What happens?
Oo yes, I would definitely need someone to protect me from the fans. I find it hard to believe how Mark can come out of his house sometimes without being egged 의해 angry fans...lol!
But back to the question, what would happen if I wrote an episode for his season? Well, I would definitely 사랑 to ship Millicent away, somewhere, anywhere, I don't care, as long as she is away from 나무, 트리 Hill, I am good. I would also 사랑 to write a scene where we see some characterful development of Alex. I 사랑 her, but so far we've only seen her in a bad light, only being allowed glimpses of who she really is. I would like to see her character grow and mature after this suicide attempt, so that she could realize just how important and beautiful life truly is.
On the Brulian front, I would 사랑 to write the reconciliation scene, 당신 know in which Brooke lets Julian in all the way, and Julian finally acts like the boyfriend we know he can be. For Quinn, I would 사랑 for her to finally get a divorce from David, seriously its long overdue!
Finally, Naley! Mmm...a night alone sounds pretty awesome, maybe in the rain, with a return of the bracelet/purple 꽃 and the line "Don't say I never gave 당신 anything". I know, I am a complete sucker for old school Naley, and I would 사랑 to see a reappearance of all these little things that while insignificant to others, meant the world to them. 19. Season 8. Hot 또는 not?
Right now, it's too early to tell. A part of me never wants this show to end, but in the end it all comes down to the storylines and how they work out. So far, every character's life is in a mess, and I don't see a closure coming any time soon, but we're only at half season, so there are a lot of "what ifs" hanging there. However, if the quality of the storylines stay interesting, I wouldn't say no to a season 8...crazy I know =D
20. Finally, any last words? =)
"A part of me never wants this show to end."
I would just like to say thank everyone who voted for me. Thank 당신 so much guys, it means a lot. Also to everyone who's been so awesome to me here, for rating my stuff, leaving sweet comments, and just being great in general.
And last but not the least, a huge shout out to Cat for taking out the time to do this interview, thank 당신 so much hun, 당신 have been nothing but absolutely wonderful ever since I have known you, so thank 당신 so, so much =)
사랑 당신 all <3
