Trinity Appreciation.

The importance of this relationship  is not only the different abilities and skills they bring for the greater good or their different personalities which creates for entertaining dynamics. They are a team, yes, but they are also close friends and family. They have built up a lot of trust over the decades, and sometimes have had disagreement, but ultimately they have a lot of affection for one another. Clark is the glue that keeps this Trinity together, I feel.

 I love Clark and Diana as a couple, and their innate optimism and  compassion I think helps Bruce and tempers that loneliness and darkness that surrounds him. That they do this unconditionally is what makes their open heartedness so significant.  For me Bruce sees them as the brother and sister he never had. 

The greatest testament of their trust, love and respect is seen when they ask him to be Godfather to their child in Kingdom Come. The timing of it is perfect too because it is all earned via the narrative of hope overcoming tragedy/ light triumphing after darkness.  Bruce,  of course, says yes. I mean, the idea of training and influencing a Kryptonian/Amazon kid, I can just see a seasoned and older Batman would love that!

It’s also why I think Kingdom Come is such a great story and seen as a perfect finale to the DCU. It ends on a high note and a whole epilogue celebrating the Trinity.

Sometimes you have to be strong for yourself. You have to know that you’re a good person and a good friend. What’s meant to be will be and what’s not -won’t. Love is worth fighting for, but sometimes you can’t be the only one fighting. At times people need to fight for you. If they don’t, you just have to move on and realize what you gave them was more than they were willing to give you. Hopefully people realize great things when they come around and not lose something real. Always fight, until you can’t anymore, and then be fought for.

All I wanted was to know that the world had changed. All I wanted was to know that it’s okay to be myself to be gay and proud. All I wanted was to have a huge show have my love on it and not have it be for comic relief or another broken character. To see that a gay couple could be a powerful and brave couple. That being gay was just another part of who they are and not the entire picture. I guess 2017 is still too soon for this. I guess 2017 is going to be just like every year in the past. I am proud to be gay and I will not give up on the hope that one day having a gay couple on a global show like Sherlock will be a normal thing because it should already be a normal thing!!!!
