ugh june is actually one of my all time favourites on this show

anonymous asked:

Out of all the love stories that are done well, that you like, which one is your fave (kdramas and american dramas included)? And also list them in order. Please and thank you!

It’s really interesting because I have a few of these lists floating around because the more I get exposed to television, the longer my list gets. What I’m going to do is, tell you my top two that haven’t changed and will most likely stay my top two, then I’m going to include the love stories that I’ve been recently exposed to but that have affected me deeply or made me gush and then my old reliables and I’ll try to do them all in order.

Top Two.

1. Kim Shin and Eun Tak, Goblin The Lonely and Great God

I’m sorry if it’s repetitive but it’s the sheer emotion in this love story. It’s one of those unshakeable, profound, cosmic, epic romances that really touch you and the chemistry is just sheer magic (part of it is because of the fantastic element and how that bleeds into the romance, for instance Kim Shin has the power to control the weather. If he’s sad it rains, if he’s happy — or drunk — cherry blossoms bloom and that directly relates to what happens or doesn’t happen to Eun Tak who is in a way cursed)

In The Vampire Diaries, the show always talks about how everything is heightened as a vampire, extreme highs and earth-shattering lows and that’s like the romance between these two characters, it’s highly dramatic without veering into melodrama and they can also be quite adorable.

The show and their story stayed with me for months, I’ve said it time and time again but I couldn’t hear any music from this show without crying because I was so emotional and I couldn’t shut up about it because it moved me that deeply and I’ve just never had such a strong emotional attachment to a couple before. Like with Stelena, I love them, I’ll cape for them, I’ll vid them, I think they’re a beautiful love story and I’m attached to them for sure but not in the same way as Kim Shin and Eun Tak where I was almost, like, devastated by how attached I got to that story. And I think another reason why I got attached to it so severely is because if it was a North American show, I think it would’ve been a disaster and the declarations they make to each other would’ve been severely codependent and toxic but it worked so beautifully and seamlessly here.

2. Stefan and Elena, The Vampire Diaries

I had ships I was passionate about before Stelena but it was more like, I really liked seeing those two characters together. Stelena was the first ship where I think I was actually invested in their story and could fully articulate why

and saw chemistry and knew what it was right away.

It was a relationship that made complete sense and was still magical and passionate and transcendental at the same time and it was the first time I was really inducted into fandom where I’d be like, No, they’re actually a well-written beautiful love story. Fight Me.

Very Recent Ships

1. Yuri and Victor, Yuri on Ice

Barring sort of watching Inuyasha as an angsty teen, this is the first time I’m watching anime and my friends are all huge anime people so my facebook was going crazy about Yuri on Ice when it was on and I was still uninterested but I decided to watch it and the relationship between Yuri and Victor is so heartbreakingly intimate, like there is sexual tension and it’s very sensual and erotic without being pornographic but what’s really great about it is that the sensuality and the eroticism springs from the fact that this is a love story beyond platonic love, beyond romantic love, it’s just love? Like it’s actually pure, true love between two human beings who share a connection with each other and it isn’t innocent it’s just uncorrupted but also surprisingly seductive. Like I didn’t anticipate to get excited and for my heart to race seeing their story unfold.  

It was a very happy surprise.

2. Dong-Man and Ae-ra, Fight For My Way

Literally started this drama yesterday and caught up to all of the episodes today, very sad there are only 4 episodes left. This is actually probably my favourite friendship to romance relationship because it’s super realistic in really funny

and vulnerable ways.

But I also really love these two characters paired together because they’re both extremely independent people who rely on each other, this couple manages to strike a balance I rarely see on North American television where they’re fiercely, ferociously protective of each other

without being codependent. And I just really like how Dong-Man encourages Ae-ra to be emotional, to be vulnerable, how e tells her it’s not cool to pretend to be OK when she’s sad, how being strong is being in touch with how you feel and how Ae-ra pushes Dong-Man to have confidence, to be strong and determined and it’s not a big deal. The reciprocity is on point. Plus their chemistry is insane.

3. Eun Chan and Han Kyul, Coffee Prince

This love story was hard for me to watch because it was a romance that tore each of them up since Eun Chan was lying about being a boy and falling for Han Kyul and Han Kyul thought he was falling for a boy so went through a lot of psychological and emotional turmoil and it goes on for a very long time but their chemistry was really great and the sense of push-pull was done extremely well, the angst, the struggle, the way they show how much they like each other, like it just hit all of the notes though really good acting so it’s a story that stuck with me.

4. Noah and Rosalee, Underground

It still hurts me that the show got cancelled but Noah and Rosalee’s relationship really stuck with me partly because of the insane chemistry, I had a post on them talking about gazes and you all know how much I love gazes and for gazes to work you need potent chemistry which they have

Also partly because there’s a delicateness and gentleness and just pure affection in their romance in a world and environment that is so harsh and so brutal and so unjust and so violent towards them for being black in America and partly because it’s symbolic.

5. Nick and June, The Handmaid’s Tale

That chemistry, that pure things unsaid, intense, heart pounding, quiet yet potent chemistry.

[ READ ON AO3 ]

There are two regular presences in Isak and Even’s bed – Isak and Even – but sleep does not always join them.

Some nights, it’s fine. They fall asleep curled around each other within minutes of turning the light off, and don’t wake up until sunlight is blaring through their badly-hung curtains or one of them tries to kiss the other one awake.  But other nights, things don’t run so smoothly.  It’s not always one thing; sometimes, Even’s brain is running just a little bit too fast to keep up with, and it won’t let him lay down for long enough to fall into in unconsciousness, and other times his meds have just been adjusted and are keeping him up, or he’s stressed about how soon he’s finishing school and what he’s gonna do after that ends.  Sometimes his artist’s brain just only floods with inspiration at two AM, and he has to get up and draw portraits or sketch storyboards of movie ideas by the dim light of his phone so as not to wake up Isak.  Sometimes, he’s just too distracted by the beautiful boy in his – their – bed, and he’d rather stay up for hours, watching Isak snuffle into the pillows and curl his fingers around nothing and twist his legs in the duvet, than close his eyes and miss a single second of it.

Then, sometimes, it’s Isak who’s the one left awake.  His insomnia is a lot less frequent these days; he’s out, he’s happy, he’s resolved to not stress about the little dramas of the world and just to focus on living him life.  But still, when Isak does find it impossible to get to sleep, it’s usually because he’s worried. If his mum has sent him a particularly fractured text that day, he worries, and it keeps him awake.  If some people made a few snide comments about him and Even holding hands, he worries, and if keeps him awake.  If he has a test coming up, or an essay he’s not sure he’s done his best on, or just suddenly remembers how much pressure he has put on himself to do well at school – he worries, and it keeps him awake.

Individually, they’re both used to it.  And they can take some comfort from each other, just by lying there, listening to the steady breaths of another sleeping body, having someone warm and loving to curl up against in the darkness, even when their minds won’t leave them alone.

One night, though, Even and Isak’s insomnia happens to coincide.

In a way, it’s amazing it hasn’t happened sooner.  They’ve been living together for months and spending most nights together for longer still; but other than the tremulous beginning of their relationship, they manage to make it until June before one of their sleepless nights lines up.

They’d tumbled into bed early, but that was all hot hands and pulsing kisses and frantic scrambling to get clothes off – not for sleep.  After they’d finished and cleaned up lazily, they lay there, Even’s arm around Isak, Isak’s head on Even’s chest.  They both tried to fall asleep.

But Isak had an exam the next day and he’d drunk a red bull earlier trying to psych himself up for studying, and his brain still hasn’t calmed down.  He finds himself shuffling his legs restlessly under the covers, tapping his fingers against Even’s chest in an uneven rhythm, trying to force himself to take deep breaths.  They’re curled up under the warm duvet, the flat quiet, everything pitch black, and he’s had a long day – he should be tired.

But he’s not.  And as Even shifts underneath him, one of his fingers relentlessly twisting a curl above Isak’s ear, Isak begins to suspect that Even isn’t dropping right off to sleep either.

“My brain is buzzing,” he admits into the darkness, his words a little muffled by Even’s chest.

“Mine too.” Even’s voice is quiet, but sounds a little amused.

“Never let me drink red bull again.”

“Babe, you threatened to shove your pen into my eye if I took the can away from you earlier, remember?”
