I think the best way to look at this whole sl is to imagine it’s just a long af angsty slow burn reunion fic which is on like chapter 15/? and we know they’re 100% gonna get together at some point we just don’t know what chapter so we can either decide to carry on reading chapter by chapter because we guess the author’s gonna sprinkle some hope in there along the way and probably spring the reunion on us without warning and we don’t wanna miss it or we can just wait until it’s complete and binge it in one go
like I know none of us would have written the shitty ‘bisexual character cheats with a woman and gets her pregnant’ part but like…this at the moment? the angst? the wall shoves? robert being trashy and breaking down without aaron? the both of them believing they don’t want each other anymore even if it’s obvious they’re both totally still in love with one another? aaron protecting robert despite it all? hell, even throwing another love interest in there to add to the TensionTM??
totally sounds like something I’d write tbh
