Speaking for myself, the reason I come to you for Sam/Cait or OL asks is that while you aren't technically a shipper, you are not opposed to the idea of them together. The fence sitter extraordinaire. I appreciate that you look at the fuckery/foolishness from Sam/Cait/OL with a discerning eye and a taste of snark. That is why I take I take your opinions and listen because it's a real though process with you (except sick/snark days-haha). (1)
(2) I’ve thought a lot about the manic Shawks twitter fest, the NC kale trip and other recent shenanigans. To me, it’s almost like a giant Hollywood spotlight is being shined on the “red carpet” actions while the real guests are being escorted out of sight through a side door. There is a sense of “Look at me-I’m over here!” about all of it. Yesterday was such a “DaFuq” that Sam almost seemed like he was melting down or drunk. I don’t think that is the case so hence the question, why the need?
(3) My last thoughts. Unless Sam has suddenly either become (one of his favorite words) Buddy the Elf, or is in serious running for Elf 2, the “I’m in love! I’m in love! And I don’t care who knows it is weird as fuck. Do you think Sam would choose this format to declare his true love and devotion to a woman? DSC or not? I’m gonna go with not. I, for the first time am now believing in some form of fuckery and smoke/mirrors. Can’t figure out who’s running the smoke machine. Any guesses?
I’ve been sitting on this for a few days. Partly because, I’ve been too busy to properly consider an answer, but mostly because I didn’t actually want to find time to properly consider an answer.
I think there is no truth to be had in the nonsense that is Twitter. It’s a huge pile of fuckery occasionally (and probably coincidentally) dusted with particulates of truth.
Why the need? Fuck if I know, but if I’ve learned anything in 42 years of living (and maybe I haven’t) it’s that most everything that exists, exists to screw me out of my money in one way or another. Don’t ask me why or how, but the answer is money.
Would Sam use Twitter to declare anything real or meaningful about his personal life? Has he ever? Nope! Not even a happy birthday mom you’re the best mom ever tweet. You know why? Because his mom knows how he feels without him tweeting about it. Neither he, nor his mom give a damn what the rest of the world thinks about their relationship. They have nothing to prove to anyone.
And while I do love to use buddy the elf to poke fun at Twitter Sam, the truth is, in this weird Outlander Twitter Universe, make no mistake, Outlander Fans on Twitter are the clueless Elf fresh from the North Pole wandering about New York City making a complete idiotic ass of himself. Sam was never waving at you guys… Just trying to catch a ride to work. 😉
