“I hope this doesn’t show my fans that it’s okay to give up. I hope it shows my fans that when you’re put into an awkward situation where you feel like you’re surrounded by dark energy, you should be able to remove yourself. And surround yourself with love and positivity and beauty.”
Honestly one of the things that I love most about the comic, and the panels starting Junior Year, is we get to see how tactile Jack is.
We’ve all been given the understanding that Bitty is somewhat uncomfortable with physical contact with people – he cringed when he sees people getting tackled, he stiffens up at unexpected slaps on the back, etc.
And since the beginning, Jack has been helping Bitty with this issue through their checking clinics. We saw how much Bitty has improved since then, what with him being able to initiate checks with other players now. So we all know that thanks to Jack, Bitty has been able to work on his issues with physical contact.
Now, Jack isn’t at Samwell anymore, so there’s no more checking practice, but all of Jack’s easy affection seems to be bringing down Bitty’s walls as well. Jack is always touching Bitty – a hand on the back, playing footsie under the table, an arm swung over Bitty’s shoulders, hands grasping Bitty’s hips, etc.
Bitty is so obviously comfortable with Jack and his little touches here and there. And for someone who usually cringes at just seeing other people come into contact with each other, Bitty’s comfort level here is so important. Not only does he trust Jack immensely, but it also shows how Jack has been slowly helping Bitty overcome his fear, both on and off the ice.
Oh m y god? This is impossible?? I never imagined any blog of mine would hit such a number of followers and I’m honestly freaking o ut–
THANK YOU ALL SO MUCH FOR ALL OF THIS SUPPORT. When I first made this blog 3-4 months ago, I thought it’d go horribly. I was so sure that people wouldn’t like my designs or my interpretation of these two dorks and this blog would die out in a few weeks tops.
But now, here we are, 3-4 months later and all of you guys are here and you all support this blog and its headcanons and story and honestly, this has moved me in a way I’ve never felt before. It’s hard to believe 100 people care so much about something I created, let alone 4000. I’m actually getting super emotional as I type this– omg my eyes are literally burning with tears–
Thank you all so, so very much! We love you and appreciate every single one of you for being here at all and having the interest of reading our stories.
Anyway, as a celebration for this wonderful surprise, I’d like to invite every single one of you to a fun little event!
My brother and I decided we’d get back together for another round of Undertale to celebrate what we experienced together when we bought this game for the first time! Come join us as we take a stroll down memory lane through the Underground and enjoy the Pacifist story once more! The goal of this playthrough is to have fun and not die a single time! (which I’m sure we can do… maybe… who knows)
IDENTITY PORN STEVETONY IS SO GOOD????? any particular reason why it appeals to you? I love the 'Iron Man learning how Steve feels about Tony' part which becomes IM putting down Tony, which Steve doesn't like, then ~drama, but then ~the reveal :D
I’m 1000000000% here for pining and like……….the whole “they love the IDEA of each other but aren’t actually that compatible” sort of tragic love thing? Ultimately, I ship them in the sense that I think they love each other deeply, intensely, eternally, but…….not unconditionally, because there’s so much history and so many complicating factors between them. So like. Tony has always had a complex love/resentment relationship with Captain America, and Steve loves the parts of Tony that manifest as Iron Man, but when it comes down to the two of them as people, they both sort of burn too hot for the other’s safety and comfort, if that makes sense.
Okay but when it comes to fic I am a HUGE SUCKER for those EXACT “secret vs. superhero identity” shenanigans, ahhhhHHHHHHH
