Is it wrong of me that of all the grief and badassness and everything, my favorite bit of writing that was Mito seeing this dirty, cut-up, burned woman breathing hard and covered in blood and she's like "Oh!" ? Because that's just. the most relatable thing I've probably ever written? I think all sapphic women have had the moment where a gorgeous fearless (preferably sweaty or otherwise badass) women has appeared and suddenly everything makes sense. That moment of: oh! (So this is why)
YES. That’s absolutely a relatable thing, and that moment is so memorable when it happens the first time.
(I totally married the woman who gave me that feeling too, so I absolutely agree with Mito here. Her instinct [and I adored that little Kushina-like moment, it fit so well] was dead-on and perfect.)
