the difference between friendship and relationship

frostbite883  asked:

Homestuck Question: Could you describe Roxy and Jane's friendship for me?

Yeah, sure, although I flip between reading it as a romantic relationship and a platonic one. 

Most of their problems stem from Jane’s tendency not to believe things unless the evidence is right before her eyes. Her drama with Jake also eats away at the Alpha Session, alienating Roxy, who backed off Jake when Jane expressed her interest. Their differences in personality – Jane being a no-nonsense, straightforward thinker, and Roxy being a whimsical and witty fun-lover – can lead to conflict and exasperation on both sides. 

But likewise, their differences compliment each other. Jane grounds Roxy, and Roxy lets Jane enjoy herself once in a while. I think that when they both grow up a bit, they learn to appreciate each other’s company as a much-needed break in their usual M.O. 

They’re also both (usually) on top of communicating themselves clearly, unlike certain other (coughJakecoughDirkcough) friends of theirs. Except when flustered, Jane is honest and direct with her words, to the point of occasional and unintentional cruelty. Roxy has little to no filter, and it’s hard for her to conceal things from her friends (a nice little nod to her classpect.) Once Jane learns to believe others more freely, their relationship has a lot of mutual trust and respect. 

They’re rarely anything but supportive of each other in canon. Roxy weathers Jake Drama with Jane, and Jane expresses affection for Roxy often, which is something that Roxy, as a person who grew up without any human contact, sorely needs. 

Generally, they’re good to one another and although there’s a certain amount of mutual exasperation present, their relationship is a strong one. 

Not to be dramatic but the relationship between Marlin and Dory in both Finding Nemo and Finding Dory is so pure why can’t we have more bonds between two adults of different genders in popular movies why can’t adults enjoy friendships this innocent and supportive why can’t we portray the development of platonic affection between adults instead of making them ‘childhood friends so we assume they have a bond even if you won’t see it lol" why can’t we have nice things

Friendships between Team RWBY.

I hate it when people act like friendship in a show is a negative thing. Like, take RWBY for example: People act like Yang and Blake or Weiss and Ruby being friends is a bad thing. I don’t mind Bumbleby or White Rose (or Freezerburn etc) and I would be happy if those ships do happen, but that doesn’t mean that their friendships are any less valuable. I love Team RWBY’s friendship with each other. Romance or not, the most important relationship is the friendship between all the members of Team RWBY (and the sibling bond between Yang and Ruby of course). Stop acting like people can’t care about each other if they are not in love. It is unfair to the characters. Every member of Team RWBY cares a lot for every other member of the team. Because friendship can be as valuable as romantic love, if not even more sometimes.

Friendship is not a lesser version of romantic love. They are different kinds of love, but neither is less valuable than the other.

(Disclaimer: I love these ships. This is not against any of these ships, it is against the idea that any scene between these 4 girls that doesn’t involve romance is useless.)

The fact that Jordan Gavaris and Tatiana Maslany can play so many different dynamics between the two of them and still maintain that chemistry that they always have shows how talented they both are.

Why the OA is Amazing

-deals with realistic symptoms and family dynamics of someone who has escaped being stolen
-dealing with disability
-Diverse realistic characters without shoving Hollywoods stereotypes down their throats
-amazing story telling
-nonsexual innocent relationships between characters of all different age groups
-a pure powerful romance that didn’t involve sexual behavior to be strong (OA/homer)
-a sci-fi that also deals with the supernatural and spiritual beliefs
-healthy strong friendships
-dealing with overeating
-a boy in high school having to raise his family
-a boy who tries to change his life around (dealing with metal issues I think(Steve))
-a boy raised without parents and is staying strong

You know what sucks about being in the pjo fandom sometimes?

We have to create all these different brotps/otps and headcanons with absolutely no history or background of the compatible (for friendships or romantic relationships) characters being in some sort of relationship.

Like, Pipercy for example. They would totally get along and lot’s of the fandom ships it as a brotp, There’s a bunch of fanart and headcanons for their friendship. But Rick never let them have a conversation alone, just the two of them.

I just sometimes wish Rick took the time to build friendships between every member of the seven, making them an actual family.  



  • 10/20 Favorite friendships.

Luffy and Usopp: BEST FRIENDS. This one it’s my favorite of all. They are all friends and they all have different relationship as friends, but this one honestly I love this. Like it might be because both are the same age and enjoy the same things, but they are always having fun and being excited for the same things, they understand their stupidness. And like, it works since Luffy is a reckless guy and Usopp is coward so the scenes between these two are really funny. The fight they had because of Merry in water 7 broke my heart because Luffy didn’t want to do it, he had to as a captain. Like I cried a lot with them but I was really happy how they fixed everything. And even if they make joke and stuff, Usopp respects him a lot too. And protects his dream as well. HE DOESN’T ALLOW ANYONE TO LAUGH OF LUFFY’S DREAM.

Zoro and Luffy: this friendship it’s loyalty more than anything. They are all loyal to Luffy as captain and friend but Zoro definitely wins this award. I love this one just like I love the first one. Luffy’s personality works well with every member I have to say. Zoro is a lazy guy and a really serious man as well. And he respects Luffy more than anything, even if he acts like a kid, he recognizes him as his captain more than anything. And he protects his dream more than his own and that’s honestly beautiful. He was wiling to give up about his dream if he can protects his like like COME ON THIS FRIENDSHIP ITS GOALS. And Luffy as well, he trusts Zoro so much. Like I really love when Luffy is like: if Zoro says he will, then he will. I’ll leave it to him. He loves his vice-captain so much.

Zoro and Sanji: it’s actually a rivalry for not a real reason actually. Since little garden they established this rivalry because they couldn’t decide which of them brought the biggest animal to cook. This one it’s specially for comedy and I love it too. Like they fight for the tiniest thing but when it comes to help and works as teammates, they can relay on each other to accomplish that goal. Even if they fight a lot, I’d say it’s a good friendship between these two. I really loved how back in Foxy’s arc, Sanji asked him to be friends for 10 minutes and unite so they can win the game and Zoro was agree. When it comes to seriousness they have pretty much the same thoughts as well. And their nicknames are actually funny as well; ero-cook and marimo~ // Even if they can’t admit it they actually care for each other, they wouldn’t be the same with their partner of fights.

Nami and Luffy: Well, even if I secretly ship them as a couple, even if I don’t make a big deal for it since One piece it’s pretty awesome without romance and I would hate to see ships wars because of this, I’m going to focus on them like that; Luffy treats all his friends the same, of course he takes care of girls in his crew, I’m not saying they are weak but I bet he understands sometimes they need to be protected I guess. Nami’s personality it’s of the girl that doesn’t understand Luffy’s stupidness and it’s always hitting him for the ideas he jumps with. Even if she doesn’t posses haki lol. But never mind, this friendship/relationship have been developing through the series just like the others. At the beginning Nami didn’t trust any of them, but Luffy did since he met her. Luffy was the first one Nami asked for help after 8 years. I believe he became someone in her life with who she feels safe and protected from that moment. She’s the navigator and he’s the captain, she’s a part of as I call it, the coward group and it’s always arguing with a Luffy about the islands they should go, so at first she was always trying to persuade Luffy and avoid danger and the and Luffy would always win. But I feel like she doesn’t feel scare at all anymore. She respects him as captain even if she acts/looks like the actual captain sometimes and Luffy doesn’t seem mad at all about this, and what about him? Well, he decided she was going to be his navigator even after she betrayed them… even if Johnny told then she killed Usopp. He didn’t believe so..

Chopper and Usopp: as I mentioned with Luffy, they are around the same age and enjoy the same things like Franky’s creations. Chopper cares a lot for all his friends, but he spends most of his time with Usopp and is always believing what he says. I really like this friendship. Back in Water 7 when Luffy won against Usopp, he went down to take care of Usopp in tears even if he didn’t have to, that was honestly really touching for me because chopper really cares about his being. And well, they are really funny together!

Robin - Franky - Brook: I haven’t related them in special relationship YET. If you read above, I have focused in the firsts arcs and I was used to see all of them together. At least Robin, I really like her relationship with Usopp. He’s always scaring the shit of him and that’s really funny and she’s like the crew mom and chopper’s moma, she’s really cute with him. Brook and Franky joined the crew and fit perfectly with them. They create a really good friendship atmosphere. Franky Is really funny as well with Usopp and Chopper. And Brook can have a good time with all of them too, specially with Sanji from my perspective, pervs.

Nami - Usopp and Chopper: this is a really funny group. The coward group. Whenever they are together you know it will be fun. Just remember thriller back arc. I laughed a lot with them. Like they are cowards but when they have to fight, they fight. Normally it’s really funny when they are together so I really like them!

Sanji - Zoro - Luffy: The monster trio. Do I have to write much reasons about this one? They are the strongest of straw hats crew and I really love how Sanji and Zoro are always taking away the enemies when the boss is coming. I really love the way they act around each other too, they are really funny too because Luffy is the one who jumps with stupid ideas and he would get hurt in s comic way from both rivals. This team works really well when it comes to fight. I really love seeing them together. And the fact that they can beat anyone but the three of them lose against Nami by herself lol.

INTP: *Bursts through the doors and make a B-line towards ENTP*

INTP: You.


ENTP: INTP! You’re approaching me?

INTP: I have to vent to you about something.

ENTP: Oh no.

INTP: *Long gasp*

INTP: my trigonometry teacher is really interesting and i wanted to see if i was right about her personality type so i asked her if she’d heard of mbti and she said she did and asked me what my type was if i wanted to share and i said i was an intp and i asked her what she was and she said that those didn’t care to reveal that informaTION AND I’M SO MAD.

ENTP: Whoa.

INTP: *Is seething*

INTP: And I know this is really misleading because I still have a huge smile on my face but believe me I will reign terror if literally anything nudges me any further I swear to you.

ENTP: I’ve never seen you this way, oh my god.

ENTP: I’ve seen you get pissy and beg for attention because you’re sick or something, but this is like… anger. Like, INTP, I did not know you were capable of anger.

ENTP: I’m not sure I’ve ever even seen you not smiling, either. Even when your face is neutral, you still look like you’re grinning, slightly.

INTP: Wait, really? Huh. That’s weird, I never knew that.

INTP: Anyway… that did not go according to my plan, and that made me upset.

ENTP: I know, I was there for your outburst just now.

INTP: I’m pretty sure I know her type anyway, so I guess it’s not a huge deal.

INTP: Anyway… that was really all, I’m pretty okay with things, overall. I’m just going to go… brood over this, now.

ENTP: OH, hey, by the way, I don’t know what you’re doing but, if you want dinner, I can make something for you. INFJ isn’t here, so I really don’t have anyone to bother for the next few days.

INTP: Oh. That sucks, sorry she’s gone. But, no thanks, I’ve got to… uh, I’m… not, interested.

ENTP: WOW. Way to be subtle, INTP.

INTP: That was really blunt oh my god, haha, sorry!

INTP: I’ve just got a lot of stuff to do tonight.

ENTP: Hah, It’s cool. See you around.

INTP: *Waves*

-Imagine Monstrous/Inhuman/Ugly Characters forming close bonds with a human and starting to understand friendship and companionship or differences between their species/worlds as the human learns from them.

-Imagine the Monstrous/Inhuman/Ugly Character over time realizing that they start to feel more for their human companion but refuse to say anything, secretly holding a one sided relationship in fear of loosing them.

-Imagine the Monstrous/Inhuman/Ugly Character being told or finding out that their human companion has been in love with them too or realizes that they love the monster back.



‘’Friendship can mean different things to different people. For some people it is simply the trust that someone will not hurt you. For others it might be unconditional love or just normal companionship. Whatever your own definition is, friendship is often considered as a mutual and agreeable relationship between two individuals, and that’s a good thing, as it has been said that a person who finds a true friend has found a priceless treasure.‘’

Best Man
  • Iwaizumi knows that he’s liked Oikawa for a long time. But it felt wrong that he had these feelings for his best friend. 
  • Always being in a different class than Oikawa was a blessing and a curse. He was able to concentrate on himself, but at the same time, he was pining. 
  • Every confession that Oikawa showed him was another spike in his heart. He knew that Oikawa didn’t mean to upset him, but his cluelessness was frustrating. 
  • Not that he wanted Oikawa to catch on. Iwaizumi was too afraid to ruin their friendship by trying to start a relationship. 
  • The small touches and interactions between the two didn’t help Iwaizumi get over Oikawa. And with Oikawa being as free with skinship, it was hard to tell if it was Oikawa just being Oikawa or if he was trying to send Iwaizumi a message. 
  • So from junior high through highschool, Iwaizumi kept it to himself, determined to be able to at least be Oikawa’s best friend if not his boy friend. 
  • He walked Oikawa through breakups and toxic girlfriends throughout their university days, even though they went to different schools. 
  • But one day, the thing he most dreaded happened. Oikawa, jubilant, called to tell him that he was planning on proposing to a girl that he’d been going stead with for a year and a half. 
  • Iwaizumi felt his mouth dry, and could only choke out his congratulations. Oikawa noticed and teased, “Are you crying Iwa-chan?” 
  • Of course he was crying. But only after he’d hung up. Only after he promised to be the best man at the wedding. Only after he promised to help Oikawa pick out the engagement ring. 
  • As he planned the bachelor party, he was able to see Hanamaki and Matsuka for the first time in years. 
  • The pounded him on the back, congratulating him on finally being able to pop the question.
  • “What question?” 
  • Confusion on their faces, the two asked, “Aren’t you marrying Oikawa?” 
  • Finally catching on, Hanamaki dragged his hands over his face while Matsukawa looked at Iwaizumi in disbelief. 
  • He’s liked you for years! DO YOU KNOW HOW MUCH OF HIS WHINING WE HAD TO LISTEN TO. You were so obvious too, but HE WOULDN’T LISTEN. He gave up! He thought it was impossible. We thought you guys got together, why aren’t you together?”

If they insist on making Lena evil I really hope at least a couple of these things happen:

1. It’s not that Lena has been evil since day one. I want it to be a process filled with tough choices and Lena having to make a genuine choice between Kara/Supergirl and Cadmus/her mom. We don’t know her relationship with her mom. 2x05 suggests it’s not full of sunshine and rainbows. But who knows. 

2. That her friendship with Kara is genuine, whether she knows Kara is Supergirl or not. If she doesn’t, she’ll have to choose between her “only friend” in National City and Cadmus/her adoptive family. Or if she does, I hope it’s a process of coming to terms with the different pulls in her life of her family vs the aliens. 

3. That she can be redeemed rather than just killed off. This obviously comes from my love to Katie McGrath and Lena Luthor’s character than any possible plot device. There’s always the one villain that is redeemed in the end. I hope it’s Lena if they insist on making her evil. 

Out of the three things, I want number one the most. I hate when villains who have the potential to be complex characters with complex motivators just end up as simple baddies with no character development. Lena Luthor has so much potential to be a complex af bad guy. And Katie McGrath is one hell of a good actress when it comes to bad girls (Morgana pls). I almost want her to be bad just so Katie McGrath can flex her bad girl muscles. Since I doubt she’ll get to flex her gay actress muscles much in this one. 

Let’s get this straight. Stiles in no way ever felt like he deserved to be with Lydia. He never tried to force her into a relationship with him because he had a crush on her. He never stalked her. 

What he did do was check up on her after traumatizing experiences she went through when no one else was there for her, he offered her friendship and emotionally comforted her when she felt like she was completely alone, he defended her to everyone despite all evidence pointing at her during the kanima situation in Season Two and most of all, he respected her. 

There’s a difference between what antis try to claim happened: I like you, you don’t like me which means you’re stupid for not liking me because I’m a nice guy who deserves you. 

And what actually happened, which was a situation like: I like you, you don’t like me, I can’t get over my feelings for you but I’m not going to pressure you in any way so I’ll just keep my feelings to myself to not ruin the friendship. 

However antis can confuse what actually happened in canon and what they think happens in their own delusional Teen Wolf universe, I will never understand. 

Max and Chloe’s relationship is so important, here’s the thing, it isn’t just about wanting something gay in a video game, it’s the fact that a game displayed a relationship between two best friends who fell in love as something natural and not as a plot point, max and chloe’s relationship is so dynamic and fluid, they’re both so different yet so similar, they have such a unique bond and relationship, no matter what happens they put each other first, pricefield shows girls in love in the most natural of ways, just the little simple things they do together and the body language around each other, the friendship to lovers but not all at once, but slowly and naturally

I guess the difference between you and her is that she doesn’t make me question everything I do. She doesn’t make me feel like every word I say is a mistake. Most of all, she doesn’t make me feel like a shit person every time I speak.
—  In a nutshell: she loves me back.
