I honestly don’t know how I feel about Sanvers getting engaged (if Maggie says yes). On the one hand, hot damn, well done! You know what you want in life and you get it. Also, I got engaged after six months (we’ve now been together nearly six years) so everything I’m about to say makes me a hypocrite. But…
I kinda wanted them to get a full story, but it feels like they’re rushing it so they can say “ha! We gave the lesbians a happy ending first! We win at Diversity”, and that’s just not fair. These characters are perfect and well rounded, and their story (while rushed), feels utterly authentic. This feels like the writers second guessing themselves and they shouldn’t. This is the story they’re not screwing up, and they need to pace themselves.
On the other hand: OH MY GOD THEY ARE HE CUTEST COUPLE EVER AND I THINK THEY SHOULD GET MARRIED ASAP AND GET A DOG AND GO ON ADVENTURES TOGETHER AND ARGUE ABOUT HOW TO STACK THE DISHWASHER!! I want it all, and I want it all now.
But, in the regular season, Sanvers are all we have, so I want this thing done right. So I want at the start of season 3 for Maggie to say “babe, I love you too. Of course I’m going to marry you one day, but let’s just enjoy this part now. We have the rest of our lives to be married. Let’s move in together, though. You’re not a lesbian until you U-Haul.” Alex will be a little disappointed, and look a bit sad and Maggie will say “hey, this isn’t a no. This is an absolute yes, because there is nothing I want more than for us to be together forever, but later. Because I don’t want you to ask me because Mon-El got sent away, or because we keep being in life or death situations and you’re worried you’re going to lose me. Not because you need security, but because you already have it. We’re going to have adventures, you and me, and marriage will be one of them. Not out of fear, but out of love. Not because you’re afraid you’ll lose me, but because you know you’ll always have it.”
“Plus I want romance, and the rubble of the DEO ain’t that.”
I am loving the top 10 lists!! Can you please do one that is like "top 10 vacation/travel stories"
