For years, I didn't forgive Louisa May Alcott for introducing Laurie as a love interest for Jo and then having her spurn him. However, Alcott was above board in her presentation, and the reader could see how different the two people were. In TGL&PPPS, the authors present Sidney as the love interest until the reader is totally invested in the relationship, because the protagonist and Sidney are perfect for one another. Once the reader is hooked, the author lets it be known late in the book that Sidney is gay. I never could see the literary protagonist settling down with a bumbling farmer (any more than I could see Jo March with the old, shabby professor; however, with age, I've come to forgive Alcott and see the suitability of the match). It ruined the book for me. Perhaps, in 50 years or so, I'll come around as I have, begrudgingly, to Alcott's way of thinking, but I really doubt it.
