Look at the way she is looking at him when they took the throne away from him and tell me she didn’t care… Nothing after S2 between these two makes sense to me. How did she change her mind so quickly from caring to hating him and wanting the throne for herself?!
I really hate the fandom discourse because lets face it…its all fictional, we have day jobs, school, not to mention people are dying and suffering from oppression and poverty everywhere and we debate all day long about fictional people.
Honestly, when people in huge fandoms gatekeep the content and social platforms by throwing words around like racist, and sexist over their ships OR start accusing women of being fake geek girls (especially other women),
I obnoxiously crack my knuckles and take out all my minority cards and star wars seniority. Mixed race brown woman with 88,000 different pieces of merch here to tell you NO and NO.
OK so @whitechoko asked about my reasons to ship Haruka/Rin.
This turned into a really long post, because when I start to talk about these two losers, it always turns into an essay.I JUST LOVE THEM SO MUCH OKAY. THEY’RE SO SPECIAL TO ME. I’M SO EMOTIONALLY ATTACHED TO THEM. THEY’RE AN IMPORTANT PART OF MY LIFE.
This ship is the otp of all otps I’ve ever otp’d. First time in my whole shipping life my otp fits in EVERY trope I adore. They’re just perfect like that. I don’t ship these two only because of ~rival x rival, sexy glaring, sexual tension, they look hawt together~ reasons. Those things are spicing up things and that’s awesome, but this ship is more than that, at least to me. This ship has EVERYTHING. I can go from “ Aww they’re so cute.” to “ Oh my god help them, they’re idiots.”, from “ Wow what is this shojo?” to “Holy hell that’s hot.” They can make me laugh and cry, give me so many different emotions.
I officially got into this ship from the “Romantic, right?” moment. I thought “Why that cheerful kid from the whole group
the grumpy kid and teasingly smiling to him said those lines? And why the grumpy kid got embarrassed and blushed? Hey, there is something special going on here and I’m so into that.” And so it began and here I am. I got it bad when I rewatched the series and reread the novels last year. I paid attention to every single detail and symbolism and really fell in love with this wonderful and inspiring relationship even more. Now let’s get to the real point of this post. Why do I love them? What do they have that made me love them so much? I tried to keep this as short as possible (originally this was 7k+ of word vomit). Ok so, things I love about this ship.
