some ritshou things because im gay

ritsus powers always make him feel the way he did when he obtained them. his chest always aches and he feels that slightly nauseous way after using them because they’re rooted in guilt and corruption. shou felt the same way for such a long time since he was the awakened child, so obviously his powers are rooted in suffering and pain. shou is the one that teaches him he feels like that because hes only using some of his emotion to fuel his powers and shows ritsu how to use happiness/joy/comfort/courage as fuel for his powers instead of guilt and anger

ritsu gets bogged down by thoughts a lot. he literally just thinks the same things over and over again like a black vortex of awful mind thoughts, and it never stops because he never expresses his thoughts to anyone. he usually hates being alone because he’ll just end up lying in his bed paralyzed overthinking everything. i dont know how this relates to ritshou

ritsu uhhh gets jealous. leave me alone im a sucker for that jealousy stuff and it might not be healthy but this kid is a 13 year old with depression hes gonna get jealous when shou has friends that arent him. he ABSOLUTELY does not act like it though. shou is like “haha sorry ritsu i was hanging out with mezato i forgot to swing by last night! did you miss me?” and ritsu will fucking deadpan “i forgot you were supposed to come over”

ritsu knows he has a crush on shou. he just kind of accepts it as a fact of life instead of repressing it like everything else. he’d still never admit it out loud to anyone or ACT on his feelings or anything. its just something he lets lie dormant under the surface. while he’s around shou, he uses this to his advantage by staring at shou a little too long or having their hands accidentally brush, but he still has complete plausible deniability

hes horribly self conscious and narcissistic at the same time. he knows shou has a crush on him, he just k n o w s. shou talks about having a crush on someone and honestly who would it be other than ritsu?? ritsu is the only kid his age that shou hangs out with. he KNOWS that shou likes him, 100% no doubt. and yet he doesnt make the first move because what if he doesn’t and he ruins his entire friendship with shou

When you think about it, it’s actually quite sad and scary how many people ship Karamel not seeing how unhealthy and toxic the relationship itself is. They perceive the relationship as something normal thinking that’s the exact way all relationships should work because “who cares the guy treats the girl like shit if he’s hot;” they literally aspire to have relationship just like that only because that’s exactly what they’ve seen/read being romanticized and glamorized for all those years in movies, books or TV shows. And that is exactly why representation matters. 

Many Karamel fans are feeling insulted when someone tells them their ship is unhealthy and instead of listening for once they just give us irrelevant arguments, top it off with “it’s just a ship, chill,” and block us. No, the reason why many people are pissed off at what has been happening to Supergirl ever since CW happened is not that we are “heterophobic” or “trying to ruin your fun with shipping,” it’s the fact that there are many young people watching the show, looking up mostly to Kara, and when they see a scene where Mon-El literally intentionally insults her in front of everyone because something didn’t go his way but she ends up with him at the end of the episode anyway because that’s what “she’s supposed to do,” no one’s gonna tell them “well, that’s actually bullshit; that’s not how relationships should work.” And to top this all off, after episode those young people go around Twitter or Tumblr and all they see is y’all calling Kara a bitch and swooning 😍😍😍 over Mon-El calling Kara selfish for no apparent reason because that was so cute, relationship goals 👌👌👌.

So maybe try to pull your heads out of your asses for once, see what’s right in front of you and just stop. Don’t glamorize something unhealthy only because you find Chris Wood hot or whatever other reason you have.
