Okay, so, quick little sassy comments aside, I just want to put my thoughts down because this is such a monumental win for her and to see so many of my queer tribe celebrating in my dash makes it feel like a win for us too.
We just watched an openly pansexual woman who plays mostly queer characters win a popularity contest over the two leads from Canada’s favourite show. I said this yesterday but Natasha’s creative work this last year has been so vibrant and diverse, and there is something so poetic about the little queer girl who got picked on and shoved into lockers for her homemade clothes winning the Fans Choice Award to a standing ovation in a dress her mother made for her.
All any bullied kid wants is validation that they are worthy and like many of us, Natasha has been open about her struggle with anxiety and depression and feelings of self-doubt. Tonight, we got to shoulder one of our own to that stage and she got her big moment of affirmation from the mainstream too and nothing can ever take it away from her.
I would bet you my last slice of pizza that when she goes home tonight—shiny trophy under her arm—and checks her social medias it will be our reaction she cares about the most and I’m so happy that she’s going to get to see how ecstatic we all are for her.
“The first draft of my vows - which I wrote the day after we got engaged - clocked in at around seventy pages. But I don’t have them with me today… Here’s what I’ll say, then. The things you have done for me - to help me, support me, surprise me, to make me happy - go above and beyond what any person deserves. You’re all I need. I love you and I like you.” “I love you and I like you.”

I actually cannot believe they are married. It’s been 8 seasons. This wedding was, in true TVD fashion, beauty in the midst of chaos.
Stefan and Caroline’s relationship was pure accident. I don’t think they ever meant TVD to end with Stefan and Caroline getting married. And no matter what happens next week, they will end this series with these two being the love of one another’s lives.
Let’s get down to this wedding because I LOVED IT (and need to write about it to share with everyone how much I loved it)
I loved the vows. The vows encompassed everything that Steroline is. It’s a relationship bound by their deep friendship. It’s built upon acceptance, grounded by trust. This is what their love is about. It’s a love that Stefan has never experienced before Caroline. Before her, he didn’t think he could have a relationship that is both friendship and lovers.
I think I’m not the only one who’s noticed that Stefan treats Caroline differently to the other girls he has loved. He’s not as…emotional. Some people react to it as a negative thing, like he doesn’t love Caroline as much as the other girls. I see a settledness in Stefan that I haven’t seen in him with anyone else. I like that he’s not as emotional and he’s not trying as hard. Being less emotional does not make his love for her any less passionate or just…less in general.
“Caroline, you’ve been my friend, my conscience, my sounding board. You saw light in me when all I saw was darkness. You saved me from despair. You told me once that I would fall madly in love without realising it. And that’s what happened. Day by day, bit by bit, year by year….with you.”
She seeped into his world without him even realising it. With her loyalty, her belief, her trust, her love, she seeped into his heart when he believed he could never love another again. She has seen him at his ugliest and still loved him, still believed in him, remained loyal to him. She constantly saved him from his greatest enemy - himself. Every time he left her, she never left him.
I think that’s what makes this so beautiful. He doesn’t deserve her love yet she has given her love to him with little hesitation. She has vowed to spend one lifetime with him because one lifetime is all they have.
“I remember saying that to you, we were dancing at my prom. It’s funny all the things we remember after all the years that go by. I remember how you told me that when I was ready for you, you would be ready for me. I’m ready now. I think a part of me has been ready for this day since the moment I first saw you. The new mystery guy in the hallway at school. I will always remember this moment, a hundred years from now, I will always remember this moment for the both of us.”
There is sadness in these vows because forever no longer exists for them. I think that’s partially why there seems to be a tinge of sadness in their wedding. Their love will be tragic. In the end, Caroline will have to live forever and lose the people she loves. But that’s how much she loves him. She’s willing to spend this lifetime with him and bear the pain of being the only one who will remember him forever.
Paul and Candice play their relationship perfectly. It’s an adult relationship, so different from the high school romances of their teen days. I am so thankful I get to witness the marriage of my two favourite characters on this show and see them find happiness.
Stefan and Caroline have both searched for belonging all their lives. They have finally found that in one another. They are home to one another.
I know you’re an Army doctor, and you’ve been invalided home from Afghanistan. You’ve got a brother worried about you, but you won’t go to him for help, because you don’t approve of him, possibly because he’s an alcoholic, more likely because he recently walked out on his wife, and I know your therapist thinks your limp’s psychosomatic, quite correctly, I’m afraid. That’s enough to be going on with, don’t you think? The name is Sherlock Holmes, and the address is 221B Baker Street. Afternoon.
I’m not sure which fandom you’re asking for, so I’ll just assume it’s for the two I’ve written for this year ^^
For Voltron, I love Lance + Keith, and Shiro + Allura! They are probably the ones I read and write the most. Lance is my favourite character so I’m pretty much open to any ship involving him haha, especially Lance + Shiro, Lance + Hunk, and Lance + Keith + Shiro ^^
For Yuri!!!, I love Victuuri (obviously ❤), and I enjoy OtaYuri, LeoJi, and LeoJiChu~ I will pretty much read anything if it involves Yuuri though, he’s my favourite ❤ I’ve read a few Yuuri/Phichit and Yuuri/Victor/Chris fics that I love! I wouldn’t mind writing my own, but I have no idea where to start haha
