not to be dramatic but is “carol and daryl deadass sitting down, arranging a candle center table setting, carol cooking for her man, daryl remembering to speak full sentences and then smiling at each other shyly while eating” too long to put as ‘reason for death’ on my birth certificate
remember that time someone literally said to me “it’s THEIR story” talking about the characters in a fic that i, the author, am writing. it’s their story. not mine, the author. i’m just observing and documenting what the characters do, i have no control over them whatsoever. because it’s their story. not mine. the author.
