My classmates are so cute lmaoo. Today we had to present our short animations and so I showed the more finished version of Rein and they were asking questions about his character and what he does. And then when I presented my story pitch for my final animation, a number of them joined in and got excited bc they were like “we should all just combine our projects together and have Rein fight all our ocs for some reason.” LMAO AHFKSJFIS. They said they really liked my story pitch bc it really got them thinking on how I’m going to end mine because I left my summary in a cliffhanger. Compared to my other classmates, theirs are more serious and mine is Rein trying to help a granny cross the road LMAO. Not only that, but they found out about my Instagram account and they saw I played OW, and said they really liked my ow art too. I hope I have more classes with them since they’re really fun haha.
WHAT THE HELL DID YOU DO TO SB?! You turned it into some weak story about a bully falling in love with a loser, fucking ruined an amazing story mate.
Fyi, this isn’t some lovey dovey falling-in-love-against-all-odds kind of story. So no, I didn’t ruin anything. You don’t know what my plans are, nor what my intentions were behind this less angsty chapter.
Besides what I do with my story is my decision, not yours.
Ps: don’t lose your shit just because one chapter was less violent, like Kenny said: “Maybe it’s time for you to take a shit, maybe you’ll loosen up a little bit after a good dump.”
Imagine Lance being a total dork in his and Keith’s relationship.
Like the very first day they start dating and he and Keith are holding hands. Lance pauses, glancing down at Keith with an impish grin that already he’s fond of.
“Hey Keith, you ready to take the next step in this relationship?”
And Keith is obviously flustered because “Jesus lance we only just started dating-”
But he breaks off as Lance walks a pace; takes a legitimate ‘step’ forward.
“Hah,” he chortles. “First step in the relationship.”
“Oh my god,” Keith groans as he moves to follow Lance.
“Woah, another step! Geez Keith, better slow down-”
“You’re the worst,” Keith says, but he’s smiling nonetheless
And on it goes. Each new milestone, every little accomplishment: another step. And it’s always Lance to do it. Always him to walk them forward, mostly literally, sometimes metaphorically.
Keith let’s him, and each time he laughs, no matter how many steps Lance has had them take now; no matter how many times he’s done the same bit.
Because Keith loves it, quite frankly, and he loves Lance.
Finally, they’re relaxing after the war is over, days into the galaxy wide celebrations, and Lance and Keith have found a quiet corner to have for themselves, free from the revelries of the parties next door.
And Lance is being his usual self; playing with Keith’s fingers and making his joke about taking the next step.
Only Keith holds him back. Prevents Lance from completing his joke.
“Actually, Lance, I don’t want to take the next step. I think I wanna try something else.”
And he get’s down on one knee, clasping Lance’s hand in his own and withdrawing a small silver band from his pocket. Lance is watching with a comical mixture of awe and surprise; tears beginning to form in his ducts.
“Lance, will you marry me?”
And then Lance is laughing, and it startles Keith for a moment until Lance himself is kneeling, pulling out his own ring from his pocket, and grinning as wet droplets cascade down his cheeks.
“I was just about to ask you that,” he chuckles, and now Keith is beaming as well. “You stole my bit.”
“Yeah well,” Keith replies, shuffling closer. “Say yes, and what’s yours becomes mine.”
Lance follows suite, until their foreheads are touching and the words they share are heard only by them.
“Pretty sure it’s ‘what’s mine is yours’.”
And Keith feels his eyes begin to shut; tilting his jaw upwards to meet Lance halfway.
“It already was,” he breathes. “Ever since that first step.”
What I mean: IT (2017) erased Beverly’s childhood feelings for Ben that were present in the novel and made his feelings for her non-mutual in order to have Bill/Bev as the straight, non negotiable romance of the film. They did this because people are more willing to accept Jaeden as a serious love interest than Jeremy. They heavily promoted Bilverly scenes in TV spots and trailers whereas Ben was only shown as the nerdy kid, to the point where I was concerned that his feelings for Bev had been cut. Even though they weren’t, they were portrayed as pathetic or funny in most scenes since the film made it clear that Bill/Bev was going to happen and Ben was sad for thinking otherwise. And even though Bev and Ben get married as adults, now it’s going to be that she developed feelings for him when he lost weight which is really harmful and gross, plus the emotional weight behind them finally finding happiness together after all that time is lost. Bill/Bev was given backstory, development, a proper kiss because why not? They LOOK just like the pairing you’d expect, the most conventionally attractive guy got the girl. Of course I think Bilverly is cute but I can’t detach the fatphobia that motivated their storyline from their relationship and I just wish that there had been a more balanced love triangle because Benverly is an important couple to me and the fact that they erased it in this film is really upsetting to people who relate to Ben (me)
