I’m playing Horizon: Zero Dawn and how is every character so pretty??? I keep taking screenshots of the NPCs because my bisexual heart is suffering. Listen I found this guy, Varl? Varl is a goddamn super model. He is a damn pretty dude. And there was this one girl? And this other girl? And idek I’m not that far at all and I’m hopelessly in love with all the NPCs (also Aloy)
The first character I ever fell in love with: Ryan Evans. It was basically love at first sight.
A character that I used to love/like, but now do not: Gabriella Montez. At the age of thirteen, I latched right onto her, being a shy, bookish nerd, myself. It wasn’t until I was a little older that the rose-tinted lenses fell out and I started seeing past her wholesome, supposedly “kind and compassionate” veneer.
A ship that I used to love/like, but now do not: Troy Bolton/Gabriella Montez. I remember actually crying when they broke up, the first time I watched High School Musical 2. It’s crazy to reflect on that, in light of the opinion I currently have about their train wreck of a relationship.
My ultimate favorite character™: Ryan Evans, forever and always.
Prettiest character: Troy “Bluest Eyes In The Universe” Bolton.
My most hated character: Gabriella Montez.
My OTP: Troy Bolton/Ryan Evans; the healthiest relationship in the series, founded on mutual support, respect, and admiration. (And, the fandom completely ignores it… )
My NOTP: Ryan Evans/Members of the Opposite Sex (he’s canonically gay), Troy Bolton/Gabriella Montez, Troy Bolton/Sharpay Evans, and Ryan Evans/Chad Danforth are basically in a four-way tie for this dubious honor.
Favorite episode movie: High School Musical 2
Saddest death: The death of Troy’s self-esteem, character arc, and, finally, the metaphorical death of his character, itself.
Favorite season: N/A
Least favorite season: N/A
Character that everyone else in the fandom loves, but I hate: Gabriella Montez.
My ‘you’re piece of trash, but you’re still a fave’ fave: …Jack Bolton, maybe? This isn’t really applicable to this series.
My ‘beautiful cinnamon roll who deserves better than this’ fave:Troy Bolton. A character this likable, realistic, and relatable deserved infinitely better than having his self-esteem gradually, painfully eroded over the course of a school year and a half, being forced by his girlfriend, supposed friends, and occasionally, his father, to cram himself into a box that someone else set out for him, and following said girlfriend, who couldn’t be arsed to do one single thing to make Troy happy and even dumped him over the phone two days before his senior prom, to college.
My ‘this ship is wrong, nasty, and makes me want to cleanse my soul, but I still love it’ ship: Chad Danforth/Gabriella Montez.
My ‘they’re kind of cute, and I lowkey ship them, but i’m not too invested’ ship: Anything I ship that isn’t Troy/Ryan.
