I saw your tags for the Suliet post yesterday (today? I don’t time difference is confusing and it’s already almost Friday here) and you were saying how not since Suliet have you shipped anyone so much AND I AM RIGHT THERE WITH YOU!
I was a Jate shipper and it consumed my life in every way possible! And then for five years after that nothing came close. Hell, no one was even in the running and I had thought that that was it, a once in a life time ship that could make me feel like that. Honestly, I know how this sounds, but I’d given up on ever finding another ship that I could love as much and care about as much and have it take over my life and every waking (and sleeping) thought the way Jate did. And I was ok with that. I was happily living and reliving Lost/Jate over and over and it was perfectly ok.
AND I WAS NOT PREPARED FOR JELLER TO HAPPEN!!
They quickly found themselves up there, sharing that pedestal with Jate while all those other couples are like specks of nothing in comparison and I honestly have forgotten how I am supposed to function because I never thought this would happen again.
listen ik if you follow me you’ve probably figured this out but i am??? legitimately so emotional because of the rellamy moments we had in that finale??? like i said i don’t even fucking watch the show anymore, i only keep up with raven because i love her more than life itself but. even a year and a half removed it means so much to me. and i don’t need canon, i really really don’t, but getting these in character moments where they tell each other how much they care for one another (”you with me?” “always”), the fact that they are spending six years in space together…. fuck me the fuck up. i am genuinely feeling pure unadulterated joy because of this. the writers of this friggin show can’t do much but i’m glad they got this right. if they had to have continuity for only one thing in this entire show, i’m glad it was bellamy and raven always caring for one another.
pits two unconnected female characters who probably would get on like a house on fire if they ever met over shipping business
Um let's take a step back and look at their amazing development and the journey they went on and how they are so fucking awesome that they can rule the world together and not undervalue them over a guy's dick
jake and amy’s relationship is one of the best heterosexual relationships i’ve come across in a while because:
it’s an interracial relationship between an ashkenazi jewish man and a latina (specifically cuban) woman
it’s genuinely loving, healthy, and dorky
they support each other and they make each other better. their relationship adds to their happiness instead of taking away from it
they always communicate and resolve conflicts maturely
they retain their independence, personalities, goals, and ambitions while still sharing each other’s hobbies and ideas and enjoying each other’s favorite activities
they don’t let their relationship get in the way of their career, goals, or obligations
they have their own lives outside of their relationship and we actually get to see them navigate the lines between a professional and romantic relationship
unlike most het ships, amy’s autonomy and personality aren’t reduced to jake. she isn’t jake’s love interest - she’s a main character of her own and her relationship with jake is just one part of her storyline and character
unlike most het ships, jake doesn’t bemoan being in a committed relationship. he loves amy wholeheartedly and is willing to do anything for her, and his friends actually support him instead of mocking him for that
they were friends before anything else. which means that they actually have fun. there’s nothing toxic or unhealthy about their relationship because it isn’t mired in heteronormative, misogynistic stereotypes. that is, they have a realistic and authentic dynamic because it isn’t all about ~ooh passion and melancholy and angst~. they’re cute and fluffy and it’s always presented as a good thing
