Ethan-8 is honestly the best. his posts never fail to amaze me, his metas are always on point, the way he talks about swan queen makes me so emotional & ship it harder, his hilarious screencaps always make my day. He’s so funny, a complete dork, sassy, kind and respectful toward all the shippers. I wish all the ouat fandom were like him. i’m so happy he’s part of us!
