Any thoughts on poly ford/lardo/shitty?
Metamours can be seriously weird. It’s like–Ford likes Lardo an awful lot and kind of can’t believe that Lardo chose her back; she’s over the moon at the chance to spend time with her. But she… feels kind of bad that she doesn’t like Shitty that much. Which is to say, she respects him as a human being, and she appreciates that he seems to love Lardo with the same passionate intensity that she does, but… oh god, he’s such a Harvard Law white boy who thinks he’s woke, he’s a little exhausting to be around. And then she feels guilty for feeling that when he’s nice to her.
Which is to say: Ford feels a little weird about vacationing with Lardo in the Knight house on Cape Cod, following Lardo when she wanders into the family wine cellar to pick a bottle to drink in the evening, and stealing a large men’s Samwell Hockey hoodie from a peg in the back entryway and wrapping up in it when she and Lardo go out on the back deck to enjoy the evening.
Shitty’s internship kept him in Boston this weekend, but he told them to go and enjoy the house anyway, since he did go twelve rounds with Cousin Gloria to keep her from bringing her friends out on a weekend Shitty’d had booked on the family calendar for months.
Take care of our girl, he’d texted Ford. She needs a break.
So it’s weird, but Ford thinks she might be able to get used to it.
