Here, there is only Zuul hunting/curating: consider this an Exhibit of Suspiciously Similar Shows at a Museum of Fine Gifs).

Once, on this High School Show, there was this Tall/Dark/Handsome Moody Boy…

…so, like most High School Shows ever made…

except in this story he’s a Moody Alien Boy (it’s way more fun when the men are really from Mars)…

No, wait, not the Moody Alien Boy currently on the WB CW who speaks in dry sarcasm like it’s the native tongue of his home planet and is destined for leadership… 

The one from 1999.

Easy mix-up though, since Roman from Star-Crossed, like Max Evans from Roswell:

…falls for with this Thoughtful, Kind Human Girl…

who he first met as a child and had a thing for even then…

- though Roman’s got an obviously-also-an-alien sister, who wants to be more human…

image

…Oh, right.

…also a sullen/angry right-hand man/BFF who thinks he needs to be a warrior and is not down with the whole human/alien romance gig…?
