“I know that if you’re lucky in this life, you get an extraordinary relationship. My mother and my father met each other very early and stayed together for the rest of their lives. Our first boyfriends, Maya. So who knows how long that’s going to last? We’re going to meet new people all of the time. But, if there’s one thing I know for sure in my life, it’s that you are my extraordinary relationship, Maya.”
I’ve been reblogging and fangirling on my FB all day about this but…
THIS IS WHY I STILL SHIP SO HARDCORE AFTER TWENTY YEARS.
They are OTP. Sarah attests to it, David has given interviews for eons about how he knows they end up together and now even Joss admits it’s the greatest love story he’s ever written.
THEY ARE OT-MOTHERFREAKIN’-P.
ARGUMENT IS INVALID. I CAN NOW DIE A HAPPY SHIPPER.
Also, it should be noted that David has maintained for years that he doesn’t do reunions – OF ANY KIND. He hates them - he prefers to move forward to new projects. He’s been maintaining this mantra since at least 2003 – FOURTEEN YEARS AGO.
That’s also another concept that makes this so interesting – you could tell DB was a bit uncomfortable/anxious – yet when it comes to SMG, there’s this camaraderie and closeness that they have…it’s unlike any other. I think he went back on his anti-reunions mantra because of SMG and their mutual adoration for one another, not to mention this ship. He still goes on record to this day and thanks her for a lot of the great successes in his career, and that RL friendship and their fictional pairing is still the ONE thing that he looks back on when he refers to the Whedonverse.
“It’s beautiful when you find someone that is in love with your mind. Someone that wants to undress your conscience and make love to your thoughts. Someone that wants to watch you, slowly take down all the walls you’ve built up around your mind and let them inside.”
I couldn’t find an author of this beautiful poem :(
