❝ How pathetic, to be harassing such a sweet young lady like her. Honestly, have men forgotten how to treat women with respect? You can make your interests clear WITHOUT being a revolting little creep. Ugh, absolutely disgusting. ❞
I never walked the party line, doesn't mean that I was never afraid.I'm not your hero, but that doesn't mean we're not one and the same.
Sometimes it feels like the side that I'm on plays the toughest hand, holds the longest stand.Sometimes it feels like I'm all that they've got.It's so hard to know I'm not what they want. (x)(x)(x)
Of all the characters in Carmilla, Perry perhaps presents as the least “heroic.” Nevertheless, she shows an entirely different kind of bravery, one that doesn’t include such things as stakes and war paint and grand gestures. One that’s much more human. We watch her cling to her comfort zone in the midst of an ungovernable world, and later watch her overcome intense anxiety, doubt, and fear in order to take action when she knows she must. If she’s proved one thing this season, it’s that the people she loves and cares about are worth far more than “normality.” As LaF would say, that’s hardcore.
Perry’s not the hero. But that doesn’t mean that she wasn’t brave.
I love watching LaF and Perry. Just like, my queer little self is totes thrilled with the Hollstein “stargazing”, but the whole LaFerry dynamic gets me right in the feels.
Perry’s all, I hate change but you need me to understand so I’m gonna learn and I’ll be the voice of caution when you need one and I watched over you when you were pod-peopled and I never want to lose you again so if you want to light things on fire I’m gonna be there with an extinguisher and a band aid.
Laf’s all, I’ll be patient, probably make a joke and if that doesn’t help I’m not going anywhere even if you snap at me and it hurts and I will stitch you up and club soda or burn shit or follow you to hell and back because you’re you and I’m me and that’s just the way it’s meant to be.
It’s the way it’s been since they were kids. LaF and Perry. Both fierce in their own way. Both having each other’s backs.
