was as open to shippers as Dr. Who

because look at this

no matter who you ship

there is a kissing scene




one of them

I'm in many different fandoms and I like to think of them as several different people just chilling in my head

Harry Potter: *has been resurrected* *confused muttering* *deep shock*

Merlin: ptsd

Sherlock: setlock. fake child. johnlock. pain.

Doctor Who: *is satisfied with my care*

Percy Jackson: *heavy breathing* dO YOU HAVE A MOMENT TO DISCUSS SOLANGELO

Supernatural: *yelling* *red and blue flashes* *fire* #destielstillnotcanon *is dead* *crying* *high pitched wailing* *frantic beeping*
