The beauty of Sanvers
Yeah ik, this is outta nowhere but I wanna express my feelings for my OTP. Ok, so the show Supergirl is already great cuz it had a female badass as a protagonist and Alex is also a female badass. But you can never have too many female badasses. When Maggie showed up, she seemed cool but I thought that since she was just local police we’d never get to see her again cuz ya know the DEO is all about the secret organization that doesn’t really need the police. But when we saw that Maggie stayed even after that case and that she was lesbian I was like omg Alex is getting a crush on her. And who doesn’t love the first gay love arc? Alex, the one who was usually always strong and calm, was excessively worrying, nervous and confused. She was also so used to holding back her own feelings, but then she finally decided that she would admit it to herself and go for it. Then she does. Maggie at first doesn’t really acknowledge it at first, not thinking it was anything serious and that it was just a trial for Alex or something and she didn’t want to be in something so flimsy. Then Alex saves her and welp what’s better than that fam. Maggie then realizes that first love or not, Alex was amazing and worth it and then the beautiful relationship began. Alex started actually getting excited for once, after being so used to not letting herself enjoy anything to protect Kara. It was so adorable to see her gush and be nervous. The progression of their relationship and how they made each other even better was also adorable. Maggie had been in a lot of relationships and seemed to have certain expectations for Alex and certain things she shouldn’t do since she was a “newbee” at this or whatever and at first Alex let her have her way with it all. After a few threats to leave the relationship, Alex finally told her that it was a relationship and that it needed to go both ways. Maggie slowly starts to crawl out of her shell and learns how to actually work together in a relationship. She learns to consider Alex more and that it was something real and starting enjoying being with her more. Then it was just that cute relationship everyone gets jealous over. Giddy when they see each other, gushing over each other, making excuses to see each other, working together, oh they gave us a lot of beautiful sanvers moments. Then Alex got kidnapped. We saw the extent of Maggie’s feelings for her, she truly loved her at this point. She was worried sick, falling apart, she was willing to risk some morals for her safety, willing to do anything to save her. And the beautiful relief when they rejoined safely. And then finally, the proposal. Alex didn’t want to wait anymore, she knew that being with Maggie was what she really wanted. Oh, I really hope that nothing terrible happens to Maggie and Sanvers because of the actress’ leave of the show, it’s been a really beautiful journey.
