anonymous asked:

Tuafw one of your Special Interests is a video game and, for some reason, has been designated "children's media", so everyone thinks you're really childish for liking it and some of the merch is kid based. Also, when the fandom for said SI is full of hella Discourse™ and you're just so over it but it still upsets you cause it's a SI really close to your heart. -💀🏍

Times We Knew That David and Gillian’s Relationship Wasn’t a “Showmance”

We have a connection not just in the fact that we experienced that together, but we have, as two human beings, we have a connection and a camaraderie and a dynamic between the two of us that is also unique to me than in any other relationship that I have in my life. You know, there’s an intimacy there that is, um, um, it only exists there, in that particular way.

                     OUT. || Someone didn’t believe me when I said that Nik and Kol are, largely, the same character, and now I feel the need to make an itemized list of all the ways these two middle children compare. Because the venn diagram between Nik and Kol has a whole hell of a lot of overlap.
