honestly i ship hamliza purely because eliza is lovely and wanted to be with alexander and loved him. she did deserve far better, but she also deserved who she loved, and she loved alexander. she DIDNT deserve to be alone.
Honestly, this is me too.
I want her to have who she loved and wanted. Like, that’s where my heart is.
I love her so much and so much more than I’ll ever love him. But she wanted him, so he comes with her story.
And, also, you know, it’s interesting to find all the ways that he wasn’t this ultra terrible husband because I don’t want her to have put up with constant awful shit. Did she have to put up with a lot? Yes! But it was not all bad. And she never described her marriage that way, and she had many years to reflect. And I think it’s important to recognize that, too. They were married for almost 24 years. I don’t think either, at the end, were thinking of anything bad. Instead, they were remembering that most of it was probably really fucking good.
I have remarked to you that I have had a double share of blessings
