Ian Gallagher

I’ve come to the conclusion that Ian Gallagher does not deserve Mickey Milkovich.

Some of you may disagree but while I do love the character of Ian and I have a love for the actor, Cameron Monoghan, I personally, don’t think that he deserves Mickey.

At the beginning of their relationship, it shows Ian as the more committed one and that’s how it seems for a little while but then you start to see differences as Mickey starts to fall hard for his partner, he even comes out as gay for him in front of his abusive, homophobic father, wiling to take any of the consequences just to prove to Ian that he’s in it for real and to keep him from leaving the bar and him.

Now while they both have their extremely disloyal moments, I feel that Ian is the worst out of them both. Mickey risks so much for Ian when he came out and then in an episode or two after that happens, we see Ian giving some other random guy a hand job! So while Mickey is getting his life on track and is as happy as can be with his new official partner, Ian is off doing his own thing with someone else, behind Mickey’s back and then goes home and acts completely casual about it. Yes, before their relationship was out in the open, Mickey had done some things that he probably wasn’t proud of, I mean, he gets married for gods sake, but never did he not tell Ian, never did he do it on his own terms. There’s a moment in the show where Ian gets forced to watch Mickey get ‘the gay fucked out of him’ by someone else but that wasn’t Mickey doing it to just simply cheat on Ian, he was getting forced to do it by his abusive, aggressive, homophobic asshole of a dad!

And then after they go through all of this drama and after they repeatedly to stay together and keep their relationship going, Ian goes and throws it away when he breaks up with Mickey in the season 5 finale, he says something along the lines of how he doesn’t think he needs help and he doesn’t need fixing and because he’s too goddamn proud to admit he needs the help from the love of his life, he leaves the beautiful boy instead and fucks everything up for himself by throwing away one of the best things in his life. Mickey adored Ian and would’ve done anything he could of to make sure Ian was okay. Mickey didn’t deserve the cheating or to be left by the love of his life. While Ian had his reasons, he should’ve pushed his pride aside and just let Mickey be there for him.

So, I’m not saying I don’t love their relationship and I’m definitely not saying that I dislike Ian Gallagher. All I’m saying is that he doesn’t deserve Mickey, especially when Mickey begins to become the completely committed, sweetheart of a guy he is until he leaves in season 7 to Mexico.

Mickey, please return.

Shameless… One of the best and most popular shows out at the moment, season 8 soon to premiere. But one bad and almost depressing thing is that the beloved character, Mickey Milkovich, has left. Now I’m not too sure as to whether he is gone for good but at the moment, it seems like that’s how it is and I hate that. Mickey (Noel Fisher) is one of the best reasons to watch Shameless and not just because of his character alone, but because of his enticing relationship with Ian Gallagher (Cameron Monoghan). Their relationship starts off in season 1,  with them sleeping together after getting into a punch up, but while Ian is out of the closet and comfortable with his sexuality, Mickey isn’t and even though that’s the case, and for a while at the beginning of their relationship Mickey just wants sex, it’s still one of the most enthralling and cutest TV relationships as they both grow strong as hell feelings for one another (even though sometimes it seems that Mickey does more so than Ian) and the fact that it may be over for good, is disrupting quite a lot of their fans lives.

Mickey and Ian’s relationship lasts 5 seasons with a shit tonne of ups and downs  set with Mickey getting married, Ian getting forced to watch Mickey get the ‘gay fucked out of him’ and in season 5, Ian showing his bipolar traits he took on from his mother, but through all of the drama and fights, they stick together because of their love for one another. Until the season finale of season 5 when Ian snaps and breaks up with Mickey, which broke every Gallavich fans heart, that is one of the last times we see the rocky but strong relationship between the two, while we do see Ian go visit Mickey in prison at the beginning of the 6th season, it’s not enough to last us until the last couple of episodes of season 7 when Mickey returns, once again, after escaping prison. Ian and Mickey spend a couple of days renewing their relationship until they go their separate ways when Mickey leaves to Mexico and Ian ditches him to go home. They say their ‘I love you’s’ and it’s over.

All of that drama happens, they stick together through it all, and then they decide to make Mickey leave again and only give us a very small ‘maybe’ to Mickey returning in season 8. It’s not right and I’m pretty sure that all Gallavich fans would completely agree with me when I say that they should definitely bring him back because Shameless just isn’t the same without the Gallavich romance.

Fans are broken without the two together and none of us like the thought of Ian, once again, finding someone else because it isn’t the same and it never will be the same. Plus, we all know Ian will never be over the one and only Mickey Milkovich. No one will ever be over Mickey Milkovich.

Now, I will beputting another post up in the next couple of days that in ways, kinda contradicts this one and you’ll all know what I mean when it’s up. But for now, I think all of us Shameless fans need to write and post as much as we can to try to get through to the Shameless people as much as we can. WE NEED MORE GALLAVICH!
