Do you hear the aros sing?
Singing the song of no romance?
It is the music of a people who
Do not love at first glance!
When the beating of your heart
Is just a standard bodily need
Emphasis on romance will end
And friendships will succeed!

Do you share platonic hopes?
Who will be bold and write with me?
Beyond the endless tropes
Is there a tale you long to see?
Then join in the fight that will allow you to write sans clichés!

Do you hear the aros sing?
Singing the song of no romance?
It is the music of a people who
Do not love at first glance!
When the beating of your heart
Is just a standard bodily need
Emphasis on romance will end
And friendships will succeed!

Will you give all you can give
So that our friendships may advance?
Some will fall and some will be shipped
Will you stand up and take your chance?
The aros with pens are determined to end the romance!

Do you hear the aros sing?
Singing the song of no romance?
It is the music of a people who
Do not love at first glance!
When the beating of your heart
Is just a standard bodily need
Emphasis on romance will end
And friendships will succeed!

Few things make me angrier than the second verse of “Castle on a Cloud” from Les Mis.  “There is a room that’s full of toys, there are a hundred boys and girls.” ARE YOU SERIOUS? It would have been SO easy to just switch the words and make it “girls and boys” and then it would be fine. You had one job, Herbert Kretzmer. One job.

this doesn’t even need to be a ship honestly just pick two characters who makes you think hah yeah they’re cute my puppups my babies yes cuties or choose any of ships it doesn’t matter as long as they’re screaming very loudly or yelling over this reaALLY large cockroach just minding its own business in the kitchen looking for food while these two characters are holding sticks and maybe devising a plan to kill it but they’re too terrified 

but can you imagine their conversation while cowering in fear of a cockroach?

j:”what the f*ck, hic?! hurry up and kill it!”

h:”me?! why not you?!”

j:”you’ve killed like 2 dragons and 1 homicidal maniac, and you’re asking why not me?!”

h:”you’ve fought the frickin embodiment of fear, jack! and won!”

j:”okay, that was fear. this… i don’t know what this is! just hurry up and kill it or call someone who can!”

*pause* *hic dials phone number*

h:”astrid? yeah, hey. can you come over like real quick?”
