Wes & Laurel came out of nowhere when they’ve always been there for each other. Wes & Laurel came out of nowhere when Laurel was the only person who gave a shit about Wes from the very beginning. Wes & Laurel came out of nowhere when Laurel was the only one who defended Wes from the others.
Wes & Laurel have always been close; they’ve always been best friends, but it came out of nowhere? People on here always talk about how much they love the friends to lovers trope, but they change their mind when it’s an interracial or slash/femslash ship. God forbid the slash/femslash ship is an interracial one; the peanut gallery somehow ends up shipping the non-Black character with a White trash character. It never fails.
Besides, Wes is amazing. In fact, Wes is the only one on this show who hasn’t treated Laurel like shit. You guys love to conveniently forget about S1. Laurel doesn’t need to ‘raise the bar’ with her dating choices if she has feelings for Wes, because he is no worse than anyone else on this show. Yet people single him out, when everyone on this show is awful and has done awful things. I wonder what the difference could be where Wes is concerned. Any guesses?
I really do love Arthur and Gwen together there’s absolutely nothing wrong with them as a pairing but the love and chemistry between Arthur and Merlin is so completely undeniable and beautiful and perfect that I can’t help but want them to be together
something that caught my eye and surprised me in the past few episodes is how much casual interaction Yoshiko and Kanan have? and then i realized how similar Yoshiko and Mari actually are to each other?
so now i’m gonna headcanon that Kanan took one look at ‘Yohane’ and decided that she’s gonna be Yoshiko’s Dad now too
My puppy’s been sleeping behind me while I’m at the desk tonight, and even though I’m wearing headphones, I heard her stir for a moment to stretch and she made the tiniest little “Mmrrrpewwww~” noise. It was so cute, I almost died. ; -;
your first relationship might not be perfect. your first couple relationships might not be perfect. teenagers don’t tend to have very long lasting relationships and with the added stress of being a f/f couple, it might not last very long or work out well. this doesn’t mean that you’re never going to be in a long lasting relationship with a woman, just that this one ended quickly
every girl who isn’t straight isn’t going to be the right girl for you. you might start dating a girl and then realize you’re not actually into her, or she might feel that way about you. this doesn’t mean you’ll never find a girl you really like who really likes you back, just that this wasn’t the right relationship
there might be issues in your relationship. you might have different expectations, different needs and desires, different interests. you don’t need to change yourself or pretend to be something that you’re not to make the relationship work, you’ll have other chances
given how few other lbpq girls most of us know, i know that a lot of the time it feels like your first relationship is the only chance you’ll get and that you need to make it work out. don’t force it. don’t pretend to be or feel something you aren’t/don’t for the sake of the relationship, don’t let her cross your boundaries because you’re worried she’ll break up with you and you’ll never have another chance at dating a girl if you don’t let her
this is coming from my personal experiences- the first time i dated a girl, i did everything she wanted to, ignored my own preferences, pretended to like what she liked, let her do whatever she wanted. this didn’t make the relationship last longer or be better, it just made it lopsided and unhappy. she wasn’t right for me, i wasn’t right for her, and that’s alright. just because it didn’t work out doesn’t mean i’ll never date again
you’re going to get another chance. you’re going to date another girl. everything doesn’t hang upon this first relationship
