two people who love each other

something else that helps me with being a recluse and feeling like i’m destined to be a misunderstood recluse my entire life is that all my favorite artists are/were reclusive. even these famous, talented people telling incredibly dramatic and emotional stories through music, through fiction, through art, they’ve all led small and petty lives and most of my faves don’t like people, they feel isolated, they feel lonely. they write beautiful expressions of isolation and loneliness, and even if it finds success, they remain isolated and lonely. musicians who i once imagined had strings of lovers probably wrote all their songs for one or two vital loves. we are all living small lives. and my favorite artists are people who couldn’t relate to others, so they created something, and what they created is stretching across time (and space, and us never meeting or knowing each other) so they can have a conversation with me, so they can teach me and talk to me, somebody else who is isolated and lonely and misunderstood and looking for someone who can relate to my big thoughts and my loneliness

So I have this friend.

Her name is Chrissy.  Christine if you wanna get technical. @chrissy22787

And about 6-8 months ago she found my blog.

People talk about things being fated.  People say two people were meant to be in each other’s lives…and I didn’t ever really believe that until now.

Chrissy is one of those people who doesn’t approach others with cynicism in any form.  She is one of those people who wants to walk away from an interaction with someone and leave them smiling.  
I mean…honestly?  She’s the female version of Harry Styles.

She has seen me at my worst and never once has she held it against me.  

So today, on her birthday I wanted to take a moment to make sure she knows I love her.  Because sometimes I might not make that evident even though it’s always true.  

I love you Chris.  You are the Ethel to my Lucy.  I dunno what I would do without you.  

Her birthday is tomorrow and I’m posting this early just so I can be first.  Because I’m a competitive fucker like that.

Have the happiest of birthdays, My Friend….you deserve it.

Unpopular Caryl opinion

Carol and Daryl don’t need exploring their physical intimacy. They are pretty much “canon” without a kiss or sex. All this associating them together, their history, connection and chemistry. They are together. Always have been always will.
Platonic relationships, they are also viewed as being very close ones. They ARE VALID.
I don’t discourage romantic feelings. I simply imply that there’re certainly things more important in a relationship, and Daryl and Carol have it all. Protectiveness, support, trust, acceptation, longing.
They are two broken people who found each other. They both are a mess, but they are messy together.

who is this joey n what happened bw you guys? sorry if Im being intrusive you don't have to answer if you're not comfortable with it. lots of love

joey has been my best friend since i was like 12, we always loved each other but were always in two different places and were very different people. he’s a very very special person tho & i love him with my whole heart. im always going to support and care about him he’s one of my best fucking friends. but i gotta be happy without him, gotta find myself or somethn Idk

honestly tho, fuck straight people who, when gay people see two fictional men or women as gay because their affection to each other, step in and say “uwu but remember!! you can still be friends hug them and compliment them and say you love them!! remember!! platonic love is important and we never see that much so don’t assume they’re gay!! platonic love is so underrepresented!!”

like?? do you honestly think that platonic love and affection is that important and needs to be represented more than gay love? do y'all really think that platonic love represented LESS than gay love? and how come y'all only come out to talk about “platonic love is underrepresented” when involves gay coded characters, same sex relationships, and gay people interpreting characters relationships as gay?

I’m sorry but, representation of gay love will always be more important yet more underrepresented than platonic love between two people of the same sex. Get over yourselves.

aileuromania replied to your post “why do people gotta label wlw and f/f art, whether nsfw or sfw,…”

I freaking hate this, whether it be art, writing or whatever. I resent that I was directly asked to put up a warning about same sex relationships in my writing, even if they were just holding hands. “It’s against my religion and I don’t want to accidentally see it.” It’s not sin, and people labelling it such annoys the crap out of me. Rant over.

why would they even be following you your blog is literally covered in two blue boys who love each other wHAT ELSE WERE THEY EXPECTING?? ? ?? 

a gay friend of mine supposed to me that maybe some queer ppl are trying to reclaim the term and make it their own and i was like “?? it was never our term to begin with, it doesn’t belong here”

it just. it isn’t really cute, and its angering on a level, and also sad, bc you know they’re still super trapped in their own self-hate brought on by the heteronormativity of our society. whether they see it or not. describing same sex art as “sin” is just. so. destructive.

It is so funny the competition aspect of fandoms. Gwen mooching off Blake, and vice versa. When two people who love each other almost completely merge lives, they do something called sharing anon. Gwen has no doubt used private jets more in the last couple years than before, but most are headed wherever. Blake is headed so how is that mooching? If she uses Blake's jet service it's because he insists, because he cares for her safety, and it'll get them together quicker than commercial. All love

Yes, thank you!! Preach!

Coliver got screwed over in S2 and S3, IMO. The whole S4 should be about them. Their families, issues, possible engagement/wedding, relationship development, couples counseling ( if necessary), dates, in-depth conversations and LOTS of dirty, sex. People who love each other know how to get down, dirty, and nasty too.

You’re setting your hopes a bit high. I’ve learned it’s best not to have too many expectations for this show. Pick like two out of those eight, and I think we’ll be okay. Surely the writers can handle that much. 

we love to glorify best friends who fall apart, but what’s sadder is two people who never were friends to begin with. because you’ve had a chance with your best friend, you’ve tried being with each other, but all the pinky promises in the world can’t erase the fact that she’s the sun and you’re the moon and you two just weren’t meant to exist in the same sky.

but maybe the guy who sits behind you in chem class could have been your real best friend if only you’d talked to him. maybe the girl who was reading the same book as you on the subway could have been your future love. and all it took was one missed opportunity, one moment of possibility that died when you swallowed your words. maybe you could have been more than stars gathered in different constellations, strangers sent adrift on diverging paths, never knowing what could have been.

“People who see us from the outside think that our greatest struggle is the disability. It’s not. Our greatest struggle is that we’d fallen out of love with each other. I lost a lot of my independence when Tatiana was born. I fell into a depression. He was working a lot. We grew distant. I didn’t think I could ever love him again. Two years ago I prayed one night, and said: ‘God, you’ve done so much. Please grant me one more miracle and make me love him again.’ The first change came from me. He’s always been the easygoing one, so I had to change first. I started trusting more. I tried to be more forgiving and understanding. I started to cook for him and organize things around the house. And he started spending more time at home. We started enjoying each other’s company. We talked about things other than diseases. And we started going out together– just like this. It was like I suddenly met a friend, who became my best friend, who became my love. And our life started over again.”

(São Paulo, Brazil)

I realized that once two people have a real connection, it never goes away entirely, you could not speak to them for months, years, fucking decades or not even remember what their face looked like or what they smelt like when they got out of the shower but the moment you see them again it’s as if time stood still for you all those years. And maybe you don’t get to choose who those people are, maybe what you have for each other can’t be tamed.

Your ships don’t need to be “healthy”

I don’t know where exactly* this idea that your ship needs to be „wholesome and healthy“ comes from, but can it disappear again, please?

Ships can be variety of things. Yes, there’s the ship where the characters are great together, make each other happy and complete and the world a better place. There’s those people who are scorching hot together and should totally hook up. But there are also ships that are all about imperfect people coming to terms with each other’s flaws. People who should be really bad for each other, but somehow find happiness against the odds. Terrible people loving no one but each other. People being really, really bad for each other, but in an interesting way. There’s the ship that’s a beautiful disaster and the one that will end in murder and bloodshed. Ships are just two (or more) people who are interesting to you when they’re together.

Also, there’s a variety of reasons for why you would ship, why you want to read fic, write fic, draw art, write meta, chat with your friends about it. „I think they should be canon!“ is common, butfar from universal. „I want some hot porn with attractive people!“ is totally legit. „I want to read about people like me!“ is great, but so is „I want to read about people who are not like me at all!“  „Life sucks and I just want a happy escape“ is fine, as is „I want to safely explore things that scare me in real life.“ „This ship lends itself to my narrative and/or sexual kinks.“ “They interacted a lot in canon and I want more of it.” “They didn’t interact much in canon, but I thought it would be interesting if they did.” And so on. 

The thing is, none of this makes your ship any more valuable or right. It does not reflect on your morality or your worth as a person. Some of the sweetest people I’ve met in fandom have written the filthiest, most “problematic” smut.

You are allowed to let Kylo Ren and General Hux find true love in each other. Or have them hate each other’s guts and still do it like rabbits. Have Snoke arrange a marriage between them for political reasons. Explore what it would mean for them if one of them changed sides. Have them meet in an alternative reality where they’re a Jedi and a rebel, or baristas or high school students.

Let Rey rescue Kylo from the Dark Side with her love. Let Kylo corrupt her. Let them be star-crossed lovers who are eternally caught on two sides of a conflict. Reverse their roles from the beginning. Let them be strangers, let them be cousins. Hell, ship them as siblings; it’s Star Wars after all.

You are allowed to ship Shiro and Keith as a 24-year-old instructor and a 16-year-old cadet having a forbidden relationship. Or maybe you prefer mutual respect growing into a relationship after they have fought in an intergalactic war for a few years. Or maybe Keith is an enemy Galra prince and Shiro is his prisoner?

It’s all good.

Your ships don’t have to be healthy role models for RL relationships. Your ships don’t have to be “pure”. The only one your ships have to be good for is you. And you are the only one who gets to decide if they are.

*actually, I do have some ideas.

Happy holidays everyone!

I love how Yuri!!! On Ice is just a normal story about two individuals who fall in love through a sport they’re both passionate about. There’s no emphasis on the fact that they’re both men; they’re just two people who meet each other through a sport they love and in turn, fall in love. It’s simple and beautiful and makes me cry every time I think about it…

Imagine if on top of robberies, Roadhog and Junkrat also make money off of stupid people who think Roadhog can be bribed. Just think bout some suit or even other junkers who convince Mako to turn Jamie over for cash. Then when Roadhog bring him in, kicking and screaming and yelling that he always knew his bodyguard would betray, they hand over the cash and don’t realize their mistake until Junkrat stops screaming and starts laughing. For a few seconds, they just think he’s crazy, until they hear Roadhog chuckling too and by that point its too late. There are never any survivors to let others know that the two junkers don’t hate each other, that Roadhog isn’t being forced to be a bodyguard, that they love each other in fact. That’s why they let everyone think they can’t stand each other, thats why there’s all the names and insults when they’re around other people. because they never know who around them would pay a pretty penny to get Junkrat, but they do know that no one would be that stupid as to try to bribe Roadhog into betraying the person he loves.
