What I really loved about Alex and Maggie tonight is that they are getting the build up that so often is just reserved to het ships. As much as I love my wlw ships there are times when it does happen suddenly and then the hets of a shows fandom can easily jump to the argument that “there was no build up” or “that came out of no where”. What the writers seem to be doing is clearly building up the ship, they had the typical meet and greet episode that so many het ships get. They didn’t shy away from having them have a serious conversation about Maggie’s sexuality and they made sure to add that look of Alex watching Maggie walking away after saying she had a hot date. This might just be a jumble of words because I’m just really pumped after that episode but the meet and greet ship build up of this episode was so freaking spot on I just need to get this all out.

He’s still getting used to the phantom feeling he has. He
reaches for things with his left hand more often than he’d like to admit. He
thanks the gods above that he wasn’t born left handed because he isn’t sure he
could handle having to start completely from scratch.
It’s been about a week and a half since the accident and
while he should be recuperating at home, with the aid of physical therapy and
the comfort of his own bed and the familiarity of his apartment, even just the
thought of returning there has repulsed him to the point of nausea.
It’s been a whirlwind couple of weeks. He went from being
broken up with to getting piss drunk and getting into the accident that caused
his hand devastating enough damage that doctors decided to remove it entirely in
just the course of a day.
I’m not much for public speaking, or much for speaking, or come to think of it, much for the public. And I’m not very good at lying. So let me just say that, in my experience, high school sucks. If I could do it all over again, I’d have started advanced placement classes in preschool so I could go from 8th grade straight to college. However, given the unalterable fact that high school sucks, I’d like to add that if you’re lucky enough to have a good friend and a family that cares, then it doesn’t have to suck quite as much. Otherwise, my advice is stand firm for what you believe in, until and unless logic and experience prove you wrong. Remember, when the emperor looks naked, the emperor is naked. The truth and the lie are not “sort of” the same thing. And there’s no aspect, no facet, no moment in life that can’t be improved with pizza. Thank you.
