Trying Not to Love You


Yep, it's another Apriltello playlist, but this time I'm choosing to focus specifically on April and Don from the 2003 series, the show where I first fell for this ship.

April and Don's relationship in this show was subtle. In canon they had a beautiful friendship, but there was always that lingering suspicion that Donnie, and maybe April too, felt something more... But then the show ended with April marrying Casey Jones, wrapping up one of the clunkiest onscreen romances I have ever seen.

Quick warning, this playlist is pretty melancholy. I've always been oddly attracted to the inherent tragedy in April and Don's love story in this series, how hard it must've been for Don to see the woman he loved marry another man. And the tragedy of April discovering her feelings far too late.
