okay so this is the ONLY thing i will be posting addressing the ship hate going around. and i’m not gonna be answering any asks about it (publically. i’ll answer non-anon asks about it privately). this is my opinion on the matter and it probably is not going to change.
as you know, this blog has never tolerated ship hate of any kind. even for ships that i personally do not like, even for ships that personally squick me, i simply blacklist them and do not reblog them. i never post hate.
so i am absolutely appalled by the new surge of hate the antis are spreading against sheith shippers. because of one line: “you’re like a brother to me”
and like? i get why that could make some people - both shippers and antis - uncomfortable. trust me. but you know what other pairing said that? katara and aang. she canonically viewed him as a brother for part of the show. and then, due to the fact that they were - y’know - not actually siblings and were not raised as such either, her view of him eventually changed from that of a friend, to that of a brother, to that of a very close friend, to something more. things happen. people change. bonds change. feelings change.
shiro and keith are also not actual siblings. he says “like” a brother. if they were actually brothers - even adopted brothers, as so many antis like to believe - he would’ve straight up said “you’re my brother” not “you’re like a brother to me”. have they been very close for a long time? yes. but i think this is evidence enough not just for “#brotherzoned” as antis like to put it, but to say that they were not raised as siblings in any way. so that’s that about that. him saying “you are like a brother to me” does not erase all future sheith possibilities. nor does it negate all of the wonderful moments they had together this season. things happen. people change. bonds change. feelings change.
but, what really strikes me hardest is that if klance were ever to get a “you’re like a brother to me” or even a more general “you’re like family to me” moment, antis would be up in arms trying to defend the ship. and before any of you jump down my throat and say “but klance didn’t get a moment like that sheith did!” yes. i know. i’m saying if. i’m speaking hypothetically. but anyways, i’m 100% sure that if klance were to ever get a moment like that antis would defend it to the death.
but because it is sheith - something they’ve been attacking since day one, even before any legitimate controversy over ages began - they attack it, put it down, spread hate within the fandom, invade tags and blogs, go on a massive witch hunt fueled by mob mentality and venom.
it’s disrespectful. it’s hypocritical. it’s hurtful. it’s spiteful. it’s shameful. and it is completely uncalled for.
so yeah, that’s my stance on the matter. if you’ve reblogged any #sheithisdead posts, i ask that you reflect on your actions, and if you disagree with my above statements, i ask that you unfollow me. and if my stance on things makes you uncomfortable, the unfollow and block buttons exist for a reason. i do not want anything to do with spreading hate within the fandom. so yeah. bye.
Harry Potter And The Cursed Child Soundtrack by Imogen Heap (contains spoilers)
Not sure if someone has already done something like this @hp-and-the-cc. Thanks a lot to @bounding-heart for creating the Cursed Child playlist on Spotify without which I wouldn’t have been able to do this!
Absolutely love the soundtrack so much that I tried to identify the moments in which Imogen Heap’s songs appear throughout the play. Of course I haven’t seen the show since September so I’m not sure about some songs (the only one I’m 100000% certain is the sad staircase scene lol), feel free to add/correct me ;)
I’m going back to see the play tomorrow so I’ll be able to complete this with more details hopefully!

To the one who thought that oblivion would bring me peace of mind..
The moment our eyes met, I knew that you too, retained your memories
I pray that in our next life
The waiting will be short and the meeting shall be long..
That we won’t need an excuse to see each other..
Entitled with our dearest names..
So we could greet each other when we accidentally run into each other
With our love always being the solution..
I pray that we can meet like that
I’m just happy by seeing your face
Sometimes you’re Kim Woo Bin.. and sometimes you’re Wang Yeo
Please live a long and happy life..
Sunny’s Letter to Wang Yeo/Kim Woo Bin (Goblin, 2017)
