One is in her early fifties. She was once married to a man, and even had a daughter with him. I don’t know when she discovered she is a lesbian, but she started living as a lesbian with a girlfriend almost halfway though her life. She told me she was a lesbian shyly, as if she had to prove herself.
One is thirteen years old. I babysit her, and she came out as lesbian to everyone she knows this week. She is taking a girl to her school dance, and she hopes that they will start dating.
They are both true and real lesbians. They discovered their lesbianism in vastly different times of their lives, and their experiences of coming out are very different. But one is not more “real” than the other because of age differences and the timelines of their lives.
All lesbians are true and real, no matter when they discover they are lesbians, whether they’ve dated or married men, or when/if they come out.
Summary: Loosely inspired by the song “Evermore” from Beauty and the Beast. Bucky had it all planned out. He spent days planning the perfect proposal - the perfect proposal for the perfect girl, but things don’t always go according to plan.

Bucky fidgeted with the velvet jewelry box nervously, pausing every now and then to glance back at the door to his apartment. Any moment, Y/N would come walking through, her warm smile lighting up the apartment. Hers was the smile that somehow managed to steal into his melancholy heart, the smile that melted the layers of frost and gave way to spring, the one that nurtured the tiny, fragile seeds of love little by little until they blossomed.
