I SO agree with u. NPL triangle was so much more interesting than BLP which sometimes makes me sick to my stomach. So yeah, I would have done the same thing u did, also HN wouldnt have been the shining example of love, if I wrote them and had them married at 16, they would be REALISTIC. And JP would have never gotten together.
And Dan wouldnt have been a murderer, Keith would still be dead tho. All of the characters (besides Brooke) would still have their S1 personality.
And I would bring back S1 Haley! As well as all the other S1 personalities minus Brooke, like Chick said, but Haley most of all. I agree with everything Chick said basically.
And I would take out Dan's whole, 'I've seen the light' epiphany cuz it was just ...crap for lack of a better term.
