Never trust a man who "brags" to all his friends how perfect you and your relationship are that has his friends saying aww I wish I had what you guys have but then he treats you like shit behind closed doors
Don't you think it's lovely how the changes to Escalus' and Ros' relationship will add that Extra(TM) layer to epilogue!Benny's Anguished Pining(TM)? My, how he's going to beat himself up over falling in love, despite knowing from the very beginning what the deal was. How stupid it was to have all the "evidence" staring him right in the face and believe, against all odds, that he could have that one perfect thing in his life, just for him. I think it's just delicious.
lmao i’m pretty sure @allisonswan said this exact same thing in my DMs sometime last week
one of my favorite things from the book is Ben’s “Mercutio would be laughing his ass off at me right now for doing this shit for ~love ugh” and listen, i need that so much. I need Ben to be disgusted at himself for fALLING FOR THIS WOMAN but god she’s so lovely and he’s gonna be an idiot for anyway like once he realizes he doesn’t try to deny it he’s more just mad at himself for it like the Broodster he is
and yeah it’s also going to make Rosaline’s decisions even more powerful… which makes their partnership and relationship more powerful… which I’m always for.
