I’m seeing a lot of posts floating around that are questioning how much craig cares about tweek and is invested in their relationship and I might pose it to you to eliminate some of your expectations. Their subplot is about expecting what your partner does to fit your narrative about what love is. Both Craig and Tweek make speculations on why the other left Coon & Co. or chose to stay without actually communicating about their feelings. Both of them feel justified in saying they are the victim of the other’s percieved wrongdoing (abandonment/lack of support) and they both felt the burden was on the other to apologize. They both had expectations of their partners that were built on fantasies of how a partner *should* act or what a partner *should* do- instead of dealing with the reality of what their partner actually did. Healthy, long lasting relationships are built on trust, understanding, & compromise. You can’t expect that everything in a relationship is going to play out the way you imagine it. Thus, you need communicate about your expectations and compromise on them, so your relationship can be built on a sustainable reality rather than fantasy. The player must also dismantle their expectations and look at the reality. You believe that Craig not responding exactly the way you (and Tweek) wish he would means that he must not love Tweek, but you need to trust that Craig reciprocates Tweek’s feelings and the reality is that he just expresses those feelings in a different way. You expect that he, and any partner, *should* show their love in one outwardly verbally affectionate way, like Tweek. But Craig can’t do that- and Tweek no longer *expects* him to. Craig needs you to look beneath the surface and recognize his more subtle, more physical brand of love to be just as valid as Tweek’s, and not expect him to be verbal in a way he’s not comfortable with or ready for- even if it doesn’t quite fit your fantasy of what love should be.
It’s so wild to me like there are people on here and some I talk to and know reasonably well and others I’ve just been mutuals with for years but don’t necessarily talk to and like I look at them and i’m like… taylor has things in store for you!!!!! bc ur a wonderful person and u deserve it and it’s gonna happen!!! but of course they don’t see it like that bc how can u view yourself like that so it just makes me sad bc u guys are wonderful and I have full confidence she’s gonna meet u one way or another
true INTJ aesthetic is that sequence where the hero collects all the items needed for the Awesome Plan™ without really having
to search, like THAT pen from the glass of pens and THAT tool from
the toolbox and THESE four thingies to put together for Aweome Device and then leaves without looking back
the exact moment all the scheming comes together for action
