(If you saw Springle’s stream from a couple days ago, you’d understand lmao)    Many brain cells were lost in the making of this. Rip brain cells. I blame @springledongle  for this bullshit coming to be, but what glorious bullshit it is.      I had to draw @foxygogogo too, since their Fun Foxy fits this perfectly to me, but that might just be me. Idfk lol. (This is based off the vine at 7:34)

This show has been trash since the end of third season so don’t come here and tell me you’ve just realized that. Because that idea of “yeah let’s go and make them cancel this shit” is and pardon my french totally bullshit!! I love Regina Mills way too much to give up on her and if that show dies she also dies so NOPE. I’ll keep watching that trainwreck just because if I don’t then where am I going to see my favorite character and my bby girl Lana?¿

Y'all we are lucky we live in a world w no mating bond where we can fall in love and break up with people and be okay with it 2 years later instead of being emotionally traumatized for 300 years.

But tbh the mating bond is really just Sarah’s (and any paranormal romance writer who uses a bond’s) way of making true love more tangible so that the thing that marks the couple in love feels like an actually earthly thing rather than this great mystical thing that exists only in our minds. And the compulsion of the bond is tbh just like soul mate shit but rewritten to have more of a physical shape. Because it is in fact easier to believe in true, soul mate, destined love if there is some type of force compelling it rather than just random luck and chance of meeting the right person. And so many times in love one person doesn’t feel it or they do and won’t admit it and the mating bond obviates this.

But also the problems with the mating bond mirror the way love works in the real world: both the mating bond and real life love are not enough for a healthy relationship. You need the other bits and pieces.

So mating bonds are really just a way for the author and the reader to express anxieties about the myth of true love (that is fixes everything and is forever) and how we all know it’s just a shot in the dark but like to pretend that it was fate that we met x person, or that the fates will align for us eventually or that the time we fucked it up meant it wasn’t real etc etc.

Mating bond gives love more tangible form and this is cool.

But I digress and it’s midnight and it’s still good that we don’t have mating bonds.
