i haven't been on tumblr since last year

  • June: you know that tumblr meme of like, grossly misnumbering the amount of objects in the picture
  • June: e.g. (pictured: a pile of five hundred potatoes)
  • 'wow that is at least two potato'
  • Ember: Yeah?
  • June: that is totally how pearl would be with human time and age. like she sees a teenager, looks him thoughtfully up and down, and determines him to be a human of 'maybe four decades'.
  • Ember: Hahaha oh my God.
  • June: 'goodness, we haven't been to this forest since at least... twenty years ago?' 'pearl it was last month'
  • June: it's steven's birthday. 'oh god, how many candles do i put on this cake? two? DOES TWO SOUND RIGHT'
  • What they say: I'm fine.
  • What they mean: JACK IS CANONICALLY BI/PANSEXUAL WHICH MEANS HE COULD HAVE CHOSEN TO PURSUE A FULFILLING RELATIONSHIP WITH A WOMAN WHICH WOULD BE EASIER IN THE LONG RUN, BUT INSTEAD HE CHOSE TO FOLLOW HIS HEART AND DATE BITTY EVEN THOUGH HE KNEW IT'D BE HARDER IN THE LONG RUN. HE BELIEVES THAT BITTY IS WORTH THAT, IS WORTH THE SECRECY AND THE MEDIA SCRUTINY JACK HAS ALREADY HAD ENOUGH OF TO LAST A LIFETIME. HE CHOSE TO MAKE HIS FIRST YEAR IN THE NHL - SOMETHING HE'S WANTED HIS ENTIRE LIFE - THAT MUCH HARDER, BECAUSE HE LOVES BITTY, AND HE'S NOT AFRAID.
