If Milo Yiannopoulos was fictional, would you ship him?
Heartless (but surely there’s a heart of gold in there somewhere, though it probably only comes out by the thin light of early dawn, when he’s leaving his bedmate for the night, looking back and seeing how the other man’s white t-shirt has risen up to reveal the stretch of skin above his waistband, looking at the pale, vulnerable flesh there with a sense of loss and longing only he and we will ever know?)
Blond or brunet as needed
Bigoted (but probably just a bit misguided right? there’s probably a heart of gold underneath there somewhere if only the right man could find it?)
Just a little alternative but ultimately
This question has been plaguing me. Because whatever the answer, with even the possibility of comparison:
What does that say about who we’re shipping? Who we’re teaching each other to empathize with? To like? To understand? To forgive? To accept?
And this is also in a romantic way, if it wasn’t clear.
- Donna thinks it’s funny how much she has to bend over Jackie to kiss her. She teases her girlfriend about her height a lot and Jackie always ends up slapping her shoulder or throwing her hat to her face.
- But her small figure is also convenient when they are sharing the a bath, their bodies fit perfectly against the other and they can spend hours inside the bath doing nothing but cuddling and talking.
- Jackie is always incisting in giving Donna make overs all the time, while Donna is always trying to convince her to joing her in her feminist reunions. None is never able to give up, and when it happens, it always ends up in “I’m never doing it again!”.
- They are always holding hands, always. It doesn’t matter where they are and with who, their hands are always joined together, fingers interlased.
- Clothes sharing is funny because Donna’s clothes are too big for Jackie, and Jackie’s clothes are too tin for Donna. But they still get to share some shirts and jackets, and things for their hair.
- Jackie in particular likes to use Donna’s shirt to sleep. She’s also always stealing her jackets for her normal use.
- While Donna does the most cooking, Jackie always makes dinner on especial ocasions and when the romantic gen hits her. Donna is always surprised at how good Jackie has gotten with time, but it wasn’t always like this.
- Donna’s favorite piece of clothe to steal from Jackie is her sweater on shades of pink and soft purple.
- They still call each other names, but in a loving way.
- Once they get in sync, they go out to buy icecream and donuts, then spend their days cuddling on the couch, watching soap operas or what not on TV.
- Donna almost died when Jackie started to call her ‘pumpkin’ like her father, she asked her to stop but Jackie refused. So she started to call Jackie ‘kitten’ like she knows Jack does, she stopped doing it immediately.
