Me as a consumer of entertainment: wants drama, bad decisions, complicated relationships, high emotion, villians with chemistry, dysfunctional lust, addiction, fights, like literal first meetings being in battle, volatile conflict, #notrelationshipgoals and sweeping passion.
Me as a human: likes kindness and communication, mutual respect, brunch, healthy interactions, hiking
“When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you. It has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try… I’ve seen your kindness and your strength. I’ve seen the best and the worst of you. And I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are. You’re a hell of a woman. You’re the one, Buffy.”
Love is such a beautiful thing. It really is a power that people control (and sometimes can’t control). Everyone loves and wants to be loved. Everyone wants to be understood and accepted. When we understand human nature, I believe that’s when we finally are able to see the layers in people. The best villains are deep, well-written, fleshed-out, baddies and most everyone agrees-
Think about it: A villain, seemingly unlovable and cold, having layers to their personality that could eventually lead them to the path of redemption.
Interesting, right? and from that the villain x hero ship is born.
I’ve been alive a bit longer than you, and dead a lot longer than that. I’ve seen things you couldn’t imagine, and done things I’d prefer you didn’t. I don’t exactly have a reputation for being a thinker; I follow my blood, which doesn’t exactly rush in the direction of my brain. So I make a lot of mistakes. A lot of wrong bloody calls. A hundred plus years, and there’s only one thing I’ve ever been sure of. You. Hey, look at me. I’m not asking you for anything. When I say I love you, it’s not because I want you, or because I can’t have you - it has nothing to do with me. I love what you are, what you do, how you try… I’ve seen your kindness, and your strength, I’ve seen the best and the worst of you and I understand with perfect clarity exactly what you are.
