Why does sam always get himself tangled in a mess? Whether together or not, he could learn a few things from Caitriona. What a embarrassment.
I keep going back to his comment at Comic Con about him doing anything for her and wondering. I mean, I don’t know if that’s the reason. It kind of makes her look terrible if she’s the driving force or reason behind all this - I think they both want privacy and something to keep for themselves. But I do wonder. Someone, I forget where or who, said how Sam is a bit like a bull in a china shop and I think that’s like the perfect analogy. He can do these fake things but he’s gonna look awkward and uncomfortable AF doing them. That pic from last night is the happiest I’ve seen him with her and it comes right after we all talked about how miserable he looked. It’s all just kind of hilarious at this point.
ALSO. I think another reason Sam seems to get himself in the most fandom messes is because he interacts so much with the fandom, not just shippers. He’s been doing it from the beginning and it’s made him much more approachable and less far away than Cait. Cait kind of stays out of it just by nature of her not being on SM anywhere near as much as Sam. It means, though, when shit happens in the fandom Sam gets dragged into it because either he’s too fucking nice or he was dumb as to how fandom worked at first and now can’t pull himself back out. I think he’s trying but he got himself into a tangled web.
