Subject: My greatest soap loyalty is to the character of Sonny Corinthos. Sometimes I cannot force myself to watch what they are doing to him, but my heart always belongs to him. I am and always will be a Sonny Firster(click)

even when he annoys me to the point that I want to kick his as@ all over Port Charles. When Sonny first came around he was teamed with Luke during the revisited Frank Smith era but he was basically a one note slimy guy meant to cause trouble with Jagger and Karen.
Over time Sonny evolved sand grew, and as a fan I was able to see and feel that growth. They took the character of Sonny beyond the simple villian, or mob boss with a heart stereotype. His past shaded everything he did and his love for Stone was felt in the way he looked out for him and cared for him while he was ill.
He loved Robin because of Stone and did everything to make her life with HIV better. One scene in particular made me fall for Sonny. Robin and Stone were alseep in Sonny's bed when things were drawing to an end for Stone. Sonny sat quietly in a chair in a dark corner with such a look of helpless agony radiating in his dark eyes. Mac walked in and looked at his neice with Stone and then looked at Sonny. It was then that he knew that there was more to Sonny than crime boss. There was a heart that was breaking over the loss of Stone. I felt that pain and that change in Sonny.
His torture over the loss of Lily and their baby, his undying passion for Brenda that seemed to set a fire in his blood, his love of Jason and Robin, and the way he stood by Carly when she lost their son. He did not travel to his dark abyss instead he was the anchor that kept Carly from falling off the edge.
Sonny is so complex and much of that si centered around the terrible abuse he suffred at the hands of Deke, his stepfather. It colors hsi relationship with his father, with women, and with those he trusts. Sonny carries the burdens of many losses on his shoulders and Maurice Benard brings Sonny's struggles as well as his happy moments to life in such a real way. He is indeed the most layered daytime charcter i have ever seen and for teh reasons I have listed and so many others, I will always be hsi loyal fan.
