I'm actually beginning to grow tired of the debate and I'm considering rooting for Lucas to choose Lindsay or run off with Skillz. Im a Brucas fan but I strongly dislike the animosity that keeps appearing between the shippers. Admittedly Brucas Vs Leytoners are not nearly as vicious as some of the Nachel/Rathan or the Brathan crowds, I've no idea what that is but some of them just seem plain mean.
There are a thousand reasons for Leyton and a thousand for Brucas, but Im tired of the 'Who should Lucas be with' picks, especially since whenever I read them I seem to catch spoilers without any spoiler warnings.
Mark Schwahn will be creating alternate endings for alternate choices because when the fanbase is divided in the way One Tree Hill's is they have to, a)to stop people spoiling the plot and b)so he can decide or change his mind at any point.
We've all followed One Tree Hill for a reason, we should have faith that whatever he picks in the end he will sufficiently write it to the point we'll be happy with it. Peyton, although I've previously found her character annoying, has evolved to the point where she doesn't need Lucas to provide her a reason to be in the show, Im bored with the only storyline her being involved with is Lucas. Brooke has equally evolved and with the new baby storyline, which I cited originally in the picks as being a great idea, has turned into a great idea, giving her her own independent role too. Screw who they pick, just be patient and wait to find out.
