Mmm yea me too. I’d actually like to say a few words on this because I don’t know if I’ve ever heard anyone claimed Thomas was bi as well? (Just James.) I would have no problem whatsoever if Thomas were bisexual so let me just get that out of the way. But to me all evidence points to the contrary.
Let’s also get the usual disclaimer out of the way that yes, Thomas absolutely loved Miranda and she him.
Okay. We saw Thomas and Miranda interact only a few times directly with one another, and in each of those interactions you could tell their was love and affection between them, however, there was never any indication that they were sexually attracted to one another.
And especially in this show, the seeing or not seeing of something is important. Because the relationship between Thomas, James, and Miranda was vital to the show. We were shown Miranda and James’s relationship develop. That included the carriage scene where they (presumably) had sex for the first time. So while James and Miranda were definitely sexually attracted to one another (at least during that time), there was no scene that let the audience know that Thomas and Miranda’s husband and wife duties were sexual. I’m not saying they never had sex (perhaps when they first fell in love, perhaps in an attempt for Miranda to get pregnant, who knows); I’m saying I don’t think that Thomas loved Miranda in that way.
So again, if the creators wanted Thomas to be bisexual, they would have very clearly shown us that he was. As it is, we know that he only ever interacted with James in a way that was read as sexual (all the looks, the grins and smiles, the body language, etc). I think Miranda served as a beard for them: as a woman who loved both of them enough to deflect her gay husband’s activities away and onto herself by being promiscuous.
I think some people tend to overlook the importance of the time period too. Any nobleman who was gay during that time would have had to hide it from most people AND they would had to have gotten married. That wasn’t exactly a choice the way it is today–it was expected and was simply a part of being able to function in society, regardless of your sexual orientation.
All of that being said, I don’t necessarily think that means they couldn’t have been an ot3, with Thomas and Miranda focused on James during their sexual encounters (though I tend to think after James and Thomas hooked up, James and Miranda no longer saw each other that way).
But these are just my thoughts and feelings and honestly, at this point, who cares anyway? Because Thomas’s One True Love is a man and he will be living out the rest of his days on a peach farm with his one true (ginger) love and that’s all that matters. :)
I feel like the entire Shannara fandom is just really under-rated. Not just the Princess Rover part, because if I’m being honest, the Princess Rover part of the fandom is probably the most vocal and active on social media. But the fandom as a whole is just super lovely and there’s no drama or ship-hate. Like no matter if you ship Princess Rover, Wiletria, or Wilberle, we all just want our trio together and happy. Hell, the majority of us actually want an OT3 (WILBERLETRIA FTW!) because come on, it’s obvious they all love each other. (Plus poly rep is so important and it’s lacking!) This is probably the least problematic fandom I’ve ever been a part of and I really wish more people would watch the show. I just hope that if/when that happens, they won’t bring problematic people with them hahaha. But yeah, WATCH SHANNARA GUYS, WE’RE GETTING A SEASON TWO!
Every time I see your art of a rare pair I somehow become a huge fan of that rare pair. I have too many otps...,
…is it okay for me to be happy I’m dragging you down with me on all of my weird ships because tbh I am for a lot of them there’s just a handful of people shipping them I’m happy you’re joining us hahaha
because of your tags on that kamisero post i now love the hc that kirishima just uses loving bakugou as an excuse to get out of conversations that make him uncomfortable, even if it makes no sense. Like ‘any advice on how to confess?’ 'I’m dating bakugou, you probably should ask someone else.’ or 'how do you think snow works?’ 'Dude I’m dating bakugou, i don’t know.’
I’m in love with this ask because this has been my most ridiculous headcanon for an age I’m glad I could subtely make you share it, anon - Kirishima being perfectly aware of the fact that aside from the face there is no objective reason why he should be that smitten with Bakugou? That’s my jam, he’s as surprised as anyone else so when people ask him anything love related he’s like “do I look like a reliable source man DO I I think it’s hot when Bakugou yells there’s obviously something wrong with me you don’t want my advices”
But also for however aware of it he might be he’s still in love with the dude so people pointing it out to him gets old really fast, like, “it’s one thing if I say it myself and another it’s you talking shit about my boyfriend stop that”, which is why he just starts using “what do I know I like Bakugou” as an answer to anything - it starts with him being a smartass and it becomes just habit by the end of it, sometimes he uses it when Bakugou is around or with Bakugou himself and Bakugou doesn’t understand, doesn’t want to understand, has pondered the option of getting angry/offended/demanding an explaination and has deemed it not worth his time because the answer is most probably just gonna be that his boyfriend is an idiot anyway
(also he might or might not like how Kirishima’s pretty much just going around telling people he likes him over and over again, tbh)
Favorite male character: I love and appreciate so many of them, but I am really fond of Fillmore. Like him, I’m usually chill and I love the classics lel, music and car-wise. I even have this little plush of him that I’ve owned since the start of my Cars obsession, which was way back in November of 2011.
Favorite female character:
Sally undoubtedly. She’s so level-headed, kind, and confident, traits I highly admire.
Flo falls in second place. I love how upbeat she is :3
Nothing says “fandom binge” like posting a fic rec list before you even finish the show ~*~*~
Descriptions here are by me, with apologies to the authors. (sorry/not sorry these are basically all ot3)
Odd Jobs (series) - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 18,026 words, Explicit - this is a gloriously charming ot3 get together series. Part slapstick, part romance, part casefic, each of the three (as well Nate and Sophie) are so in character and so disgustingly in love. Also there’s kittens.
Shelter Me (series) - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 21,193 words, Explicit - there’s this recurring theme in this fandom of “Eliot is watching Parker and Hardison’s relationship and wants in but doesn’t think he deserves love” and this fic is probably the most amazingly well done example of it. For all your angst and very hot, slightly weird porn needs, look no further.
Odd One Out - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 27,697 words, Explicit - my notes on my bookmark of this one just read “Yessssssssss” because this is such a satisfying read. It’s a get-together ot3 fic, but with Parker and Hardison in a romantic relationship and Eliot as casual third, but where they all love and take care of each other (as in canon). Each one of them has complex needs and emotions and it makes such a good read watching them all figure it out together.
Nerds of the Earth, take note! - gen, 7951 words, G rated - Hardison POV MCU crossover in which he’s kidnapped by SHIELD to stop one of Tony Stark’s AI’s from taking over the world. Even if you’re not a Marvel fan, this is an excellent, fun Hardison-centric fic with lots of team-feelings.
like a map of a place you’ve never been - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 24,549 words, Explicit - this is what the fake!married trope was made for. While Parker and Hardison are already together, Parker and Eliot have to go under cover as a married couple. Sexual tension, angst, and feelings ensue, with a happy ending.
Fair Share - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 9,579 words, Explicit - starts out with cute comedy and friendship through food sharing, winds up as an equilateral get-together with excellent porn + feelings.
The Safe and Sound Job - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 15,721 words, Teen - Eliot-centric case fic + ot3 get together. Eliot is injured on a job and then hurt/comfort, angst, feelings, and romantic realizations ensue. Excellently plotted and fantastic characterization of all three of them.
It’s a Long Way to Zanzibar - Parker/Hardison/Eliot, 11,722 words, Explicit - circa season 2, the trio go on a road trip to the Grand Canyon. I love a road trip fic, and I love a porny fic, and I love a slow dawning of feelings fic, and this is all of those.
i need a movie that is more or less les mis modern au (even better if its gay af) pls
YAAAASSSSS!!!!! I have a mighty NEED for this!
Y’all wanted gay af? I’ll give you gay af, with just a little hetro and bi on the side ;)
I’ll give ya a socially awkward Marius as the new kid at university, falling in love with the Dean’s daughter Cosette. And dean Valjean who used to be involved in some shady business when he was young but now is so clean you could eat off him. But Marius, a business major (since his grandad bullied him into taking a degree that would get him ‘a real job’, though he realizes he actually does have the mind for it), is absolutely terrified of him, even when he sees how much of a softy he becomes around Cosette, his smol 5 foot fashion and design major daughter.
Enjolras, a French culture and language major minoring in politics, shares an apartment with Courfeyrac and Combeferre, two idiots so in love with each other and don’t even notice that it makes Enj wanna vomit. But really it just makes him roll his eyes and smile knowingly, patiently waiting for them to get there damn act together. And Courf is a theatre major (an idea and au I just can’t get out of my head) and Ferre is a med student. Enj leads Les Amis at a small cafe called the Musain on the university campus. They do rallies, petitions, and other social justice-y stuff. E is passionate, wild, ruthless, and beautiful.
Then there’s Jehan, a linguistics major who becomes fast friends with Cosette (I just think they’d get along so well). Jehan has a certificate of fluency in English, French, Italian, and Greek. Though they are also learning Latin and Hebrew. Their proficiency in languages leads to them write poetry in multiple languages and win many awards for it. They’re kind of famous around campus and anyone who needs an emergency romantic poem for a date or otherwise goes straight to them.
Joly, who lives with Bossuet, Musichetta, and Grantaire in a tiny 2 bedroom apartment, is also a med student who wants to specialize in paediatrics. He has a prosthetic leg on his right side but he’s had it his whole life and deals well. Bossuet is a history major and Musichetta is a music major (don’t get me started on Chetta playing the cello). Also, slight tangent, but in this modern au Joly/Bossuet/Chetta got together in a *cough* innocent *cough* way. Originally, it was just Joly, Chetta, and Taire living in the 2 bedroom. But Bossuet was couch surfing and ended up staying with them for a few weeks. One night it’s cold so Joly and Chetta invite him spend the night in their bed, absolutely platonically right (??????), then ‘why not spend a few more night with us I mean it is cold’ and then 'oh I guess I might a well, and wait are we having a threesome?’, then 'wait! Bossuet you might as well stay! Whoops we’re all together now. We’re gonna need a bigger bed’ They’re room is pretty much 95% bed.
Feuilly works at the university in the library but is taking night classes to get his degree in child care and development. He wants to work with underprivileged kids and help them the way no one helped him. He and Bahorel, who is of course a law student, have been together for years and their relationship is surprisingly healthy considering both of them are constantly busy with work and school and life.
Grantaire, wonderful Grantaire, is a visual arts major who had a fucked up childhood and a fucked up adolescence in a fucked up household yet his art is full of vibrant colours and life, just like his laugh. He’s best friends with Eponine, a bioscience major who works 2 jobs as well as going to full time classes to take care of Gavroche and Azelma both in elementary and high school respectively. Grantaire lives with the ot3 Joly/Bossuet/Chetta.
He and Enjolras are most definitely not in love, no sir! They fight and argue but there’s rarely any animosity behind their jabs, though I’m not sure Enj has realized that yet. He says he doesn’t consider R part of Les Amis and yet has has photos of R and the rest of Les Amis on his wall in his apartment. He actually keeps the art R gives him and cherishes them. In fact they find a strange fondness in their fights. And R, well R just loves to fuck with Enj. Taire loves to get him going. Purposefully saying things he knows will get his blood boiling. Does it infuriate Enjolras? Yes. Does it turn Enjolras on? Perhaps.
And it takes them almost to graduation to finally admit it. Finally an argument pushed to far leads to some yelling, a little screaming, and a little or a lot of pent up sexual frustration. They emerge from the bedroom in Enj’s apartment to a small note on the kitchen counter simply saying ‘congrats on the sex - C & C’ in nice gold lettering.
And they all lived happily ever after (and no one dies)
Now hold your horses. Before you send me an angry ask calling me a bitch or scream at me in the replies for being wrong, let me be more specific.
I hate the way H2OVanToonz is being shown as in this fandom.
Let me explain; As you all know, H2OVanToonz is an OT3 of Evan, Delirious, and Luke. Right?
As much as I want to say yes, that answer is sadly a definite ‘no’.
Ever since it was created, H2OVanToonz has been a love triangle. A polyamory relationship is a three-way love, where each member loves each other equally. That is not what I see when I see H2OVanToonz.
What I see is two men always fighting, for the most part with guns, knives, bombs, and even beating until they’re on the brink of death, for the third person in their party.
Do you have some rare pairs or at least slightly less popular ships cause ive been dabbling in jotapol and i was curious if anyone else had random pairs
Oh hell yeah, alright so listen up I ship wayyyyy too much Jojo, I guess you can say that’s why I limited this blog to specific pairings to save myself. (BTW 9/10 of these are OT3 so…..) Thank you for this great ask anon!
Part 1: Uhm I always considered Jonadio a “rarepair” before I got into this fandom and was completely taken aback by the amount of fanficition for them on AO3 where they have the most. I ship Erina x Jonathan x Dio because I am IN LOVE with OT3′s.
Part 2: Just CaejoseQ really, this is a great OT3 and makes more sense than the one above.
Part 3: I dig some Jotapol, Also the OT3 of Jotaro x Polnareff x Avdol that’s good shit. Uhm Joseph x Avdol I guess, personally kind of surprised this isn’t a bigger ship.
Part 4: Jotahan (not Josuhan, I am not a fan of that pairing) But Jotaro and Rohan, that’s a good pairing, I really like the dynamic because of their personalities and how Jotaro is calm and collected and Rohan is an evil asshole (I’m kidding….he’s great) They don’t have like any fics about them but the ones that they do I have read too many times. Also best OT3 by far is Jotaro x Kakyoin x Rohan ‘nuff said.
Part 5: I love me some Mista and Bruno but they are almost always with Giorno in an OT3 which is fine. (Seeing a trend here? lol) Trish x Narancia is quality. Also my favorite author on AO3- etymologyplayground writes the rare pair of Fugo x Giorno and I never would have shipped them as much as I do if it weren’t for her.
Part 6: Weather x Anasui maybe??? not really rare per say but eh. (Enjoying part 6 so far though)
Something interesting that I've noticed about Romione shippers is that they can be perfectly fine with people shipping Hermione with anyone else (especially Dramione), but when it comes to people shipping Harmony, they completely lose their minds. It really goes to show how insecure most Romione shippers are because Harmony poses a genuine threat to their ship; Harmony had genuine potential to become a reality. Errr... yeah... Just something interesting I noticed and wanted to share.
no but i’ve picked up on this in my years on tumblr. for the most part, romione shippers hate harmony (and harmony shippers hate romione). but outside of romione (and hinny too bc jfc that just came out of nooooooowhere), harmony shippers don’t mind other hermione or harry ships! like, take myself for example, if you forced me to choose someone else to be with hermione besides harry, i wouldn’t complain if krum or draco or luna got with her (ahah thank tumblr for my hermione x luna ship :P). and same with harry; if hermione wasn’t an option, i fucking love harry x luna like nobody’s business (so i guess my dream OT3 would be harry x hermione x luna ;dlaksjf;akldfa)
anyway, yes, you are absolutely right. loads of romione shippers may say that harmony had no chemistry or was incestual or whatever, but clearly they single us out from all the other non-canon ships bc there was some basis for it and ‘IT COULD HAVE GONE THAT WAY’ ;)
cleaning out my wips folder! I found this adorable sketch from over a year ago and decided to throw some color on it
Back in the day I was deeply discussing OT3 headcanons with someone- I can’t remember who message me- about Parmak/Garak/Bashir, but mainly focusing on the Parmak and Bashir part. Somewhere along the line, we decided that Bashir went to work at the same hospital as Parmak, and Bashir told Parmak of an old earth tradition of doctors giving children patients lollipops after a visit. Parmak was absolutely delighted by this, and decided to start doing this for cardassian children.
It’s still one of the most delightful ideas and I love it
Takeo friend has to have him stand behind him to act tough
They’re just way to cute I can’t even!
Suna’s just the best!!!
She really loves him!
He called her by her first name finally!
And it looks like the pervert has learned to be more respectful
These guys are so OT3!!!
So in all, this entire show was a feels trip! But I never came away feeling sad. Honestly one of the most mature romance shows in a while, thanks in part to Suna saving us from so many misunderstanding tropes! Everything is ending this week and next, and I’m just not ready for my summer to end!!
waves that rolled you under - 31k / this is actually an ot3 fic so there’s some zarry and ziall buT IT’S SO GOOD the description says “the one where they burn out, fuck off, and try to figure it all out.”
Havenly Nights Wrap Party Favorite Relationship: Threegulls
All aboard the S.S. Threegulls!
This is my favorite Haven ship. The thee above from left to right are Duke Crocker, Nathan Wuornos, and Audrey Parker. As @fiore-della-valle tags them, they are “cops and robber”- Audrey and Nathan being the cops and Duke being the smuggling pirate. Literally, he owns a boat and everything!
These three go through a lot of shit together, and for the most part, it ends up bonding them closer. One of my favorite aspects of this OT3 is the candid nature of their relationship; it’s not a secret that Nathan and Audrey love each other. It’s not a secret that Audrey and Duke love each other. It’s clear, if not actually verbally established, that Nathan and Duke love each other.
Regardless of anything else, these three end up trusting and counting on one another. They make plans around what they know the others will do even then the others aren’t there to tell them. They make plans through silent communication. They have a lot of wonderful, snarky, affectionate, soft moments together. I could watch these three interact forever.
What is Leverage about? And does it really have a canon polyamorous relationship?
Oh, anon! Come to the wonderful joyous bosom of Leverage, I have watched all five seasons of this show three times through without skipping an episode and sometimes wonder when my next rewatch should be, that is how good it is.
Leverage is the story of five thieves stealing from and pulling cons on the rich and powerful and evil in order to give back to their victims. The team is led by Nate Ford, who is unfortunately the least compelling character on the show but who still gives me feelings. He’s a mastermind trying to walk the line between “honest man” and thief, he deals with alcoholism (poorly, but the narrative never shies away from showing and acknowledging that his choices are poor), and he gathers this family around him. Sophie Devereaux is the grifter, able to put on someone else like they’re a perfectly tailored gown she’s wearing–and who deals with all the questions of identity inherent in a talent like that.
Then there’s the OT3 (more on the canon-ish status of that soon). Eliot Spencer is a growly, terrifyingly competent man who does a lot of beating people up but hates guns, and who protects his team and feeds them and does a lot of the home-building of it all, along with Sophie. Alec Hardison is a genius hacker who unfortunately gets mistreated by the show sometimes but who is also so sharp and so kind and so glad to have this family. Parker is a thief who can steal anything, and she isn’t great with people in the beginning, but she has one of the best character arcs I have ever seen in my life.
Really, in general, it is the best group-of-misfits-becomes-a-family show I have ever seen.
Now, as for the canon status of the OT3, which is a complex question. Two members of it are canonically in a really really well-done relationship, for one thing. But all throughout and ESPECIALLY in the final season, the last character in the OT3 is–well, he has the occasional one-episode love interest, but he is very clearly part of their unit. There’s an episode that’s just the three of them and it’s the most poly thing I’ve ever seen (which contains the words “for better or worse, we change together”) at least until the finale (which contains the words “till my dying day”).
That being said, within the text, the third member never kisses the other two. He doesn’t express overt romantic interest, there’s never a love triangle where he shows interest in either of them, it’s not the relationship cues we’re used to seeing on our screens.
But, like, the creator almost-confirmed a while ago and apparently actually confirmed now, so I am going to take that and run with it!
