Every now and again I get these fangirl pangs of regret when I remember a favorite story is complete. One of these is Jenny Han’s To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before. Naturally when things like this happens, it generally signals a time to write something additional about the fandom, and so, today we add these characters to one of our series. It’s time to features this OTP favorite: Lara Jean and Peter (because they’re pretty dang cute).
These two are still teenagers so their romance is still growing and evolving, but I do like them together. They’re cute and they get lots of sweet moments, too. The plot follows a teen girl who writes a set of five love letters to the five boys she crushes on through her high school years. Unbeknownst to her, the letters get mailed which causes all kinds of complications!
Below I’m sharing just a few of my favorite scenes between these two.
OTP FAVORITE: LARA JEAN AND PETER
Spoilers below! Listed by order of events
1: THE LETTER
Of course, everything begins with a letter; letters that, quite unexpectedly, find their way to each of Lara Jean’s crushes. One of them being Peter. After receiving her letter, Peter gives Lara Jean a rough time, but he also doesn’t want to relinquish the letter suggesting that he too has a little thing for Lara Jean. Of course, later he writes her something of his own!
2: THE PACT
Their pact to “fake date” in the letter aftermath is a pretty dang cute scene, and sets into motion the real story that unfolds between them.
One of the cute little quirks I love about their relationship is that Peter calls Lara Jean “Covey,” which is her last name. It’s just always so cute!EIGHT OF THE BEST LARA JEAN & PETER ‘TO ALL THE BOYS’ MOMENTS (OTP FAVORITE!) #OTPS #NETFLIX #TOALLTHEBOYS #LARAJEANANDPETER #ROMANCE Click To Tweet
4: LARA JEAN GROWING UP
Though this quote (below) isn’t inspired by Peter per se (it is and isn’t), it’s indicative of Lara Jean growing up and realizing that sometimes love isn’t fireworks, but rather in the small moments.
In the third and final film, as an extreme romantic-comedy fan, Lara Jean tells Peter, “I Wish We Had a Meet-Cute.” Peter, of course, tells her they do, she just doesn’t remember it (because it was when they were kids). She doesn’t believe him, but, well, we have to wait until that letter from Peter to learn more about this.
6: ROMANITC COMEDIES
It’s quite cute to see Peter try and win Lara Jean back (after, say, a fight) with a reference to one of her favorite movies! It’s unrealistic, but still… cute.
7: PETER’S LETTER
In Peter’s letter, he recounts meeting Lara Jean with the reaction, “My Heart Did a Somersault In My Chest. I Didn’t Know Hearts Could Do That.” Speaking more of their present, he further goes on to write, that “It Won’t Always Be Easy, But I Want To Do Whatever It Takes To Make This Work. Because That’s What You Do When You Love Someone.”
8: HAPPY ENDING AND A CHOICE
Between Peter’s letter, and Lara Jean’s voice over in the end, though they’re not together exactly (physically), the words apply and it’s super sweet and a nice sentiment that wraps up their love story. Additionally, I love the more realistic romantics of choice.
