the thing i love about fshenko and mshenko is that i used to think they were the same ship just a different gender and i didn’t really understand how the fandoms were so different.
but i’ve realized that mshenko has the dynamic of lost time. this tension that’s been building up for years because of unsurety and is there really time with a war on. they finally find themselves together on the eve of the end of the universe. but it’s almost too little too late
with fshenko it was all so innocent in the beginning, so perfect. dying ruined everything. the relationship is never the same after that and they’re left longing for the simplicity of mess hall late nights and battlefield flirting. just take me back to the start.
i guess what i’m trying to say is no matter how you ship it, everyone ends up in tears and i think that’s beautiful.
