a brief infatuation

anonymous asked:

oh gosh i used to have a brief infatuation with you. i'm sorry if this comes off as unsettling for you?? i really don't mean to be. i just remembered your blog and decided to see if you are doing alright.

i can guarantee you that this comes off opposite of unsettling… in fact, it’s an honor to receive this attention from you! i apologize if that’s gross coming from someone like me, but i… feel it’s more simply gratitude. 

Some of y'all wanted Rick to talk about Jessie? Well he did. He made it clear to his son that what he had with Michonne Is DIFFERENT. And worth discussing with him as a family. In other words, not some brief infatuation, but something real and lasting built on friendship and love and mingled with passion for how awesome they are together.

Or something like that.

i really just do not understand the logic wherein

the culmination of a three season slow burn between best friends with an impenetrable bond who have been co-parenting for like a year

is somehow “cheapened”

because of its perceived proximity to the ignominious end of rick’s non-relationship with a woman he knew for two weeks

how does the abortive rick/jessie relationship being unconsummated, unimportant, and unmourned before the show moved along to the main event, aka richonne which it’d been carefully building towards for seasons, cheapen anything but rick/jessie?

i mean, as much as you even CAN cheapen something that literally exists for no other reason than as a narrative primer for the actual storyline.

like that shit doesn’t even sound right

ah yes well rick began and ended a brief infatuation w/ a rando that was 95% him projecting about his inability to protect his dead wife right before rick/michonne happened

so clearly him realizing that he was and has been deeply in love with michonne, the person closest to him in the world who he trusts the most in the world, and them being together is the only thing that makes sense and the only thing they want is IRREPARABLY CHEAPENED and their de facto marriage of respected partners and equals ETERNALLY BESMIRCHED


but i guess if you want to just ignore the reality of the relationships in question and create your own narrative??? …okay?
