I've been approached by the people over at The Shipper's Manifesto (http://www.livejournal.com/~ship_manifesto) to do an essay about Carter and Luka. It's due to be posted in December, and, despite going over things a million times in my mind, I can't come up with why I like Carter and Luka as a couple. I feel like the kids in the television commercial for the American cereal Apple Jacks. They're usually shown sitting around and enjoying their cereal when someone else (usually an adult) looks at the box and asks them why they like it. The kids just stare at the adult, and sometimes will even go so far as to say "we just do", as if the reasons should be crystal clear.
I'm like that with Carter/Luka. I just like them. I can't seem to be able to come up with any concrete reasons as to why I like them, I just do. They go together (of course, I could say that about one of my other favorite Carter pairings -- Carter/Dave, although with them, I CAN come up with reasons).
So, I need your help. I'd like to know why you like Carter and Luka as a couple. What about them do you find attractive? Why do you think they work as a couple? Is there any one scene or episode that cemented them as a couple in your heart?
