I’m not a sucker for love stories.
When I say I ship something, I don’t care about the happily ever after. I don’t care about romantic comedies or princess movies with a seamless love arc and a fairytale ending. That isn’t what I’m in it for.
I’m not a sucker for love stories. I’m a sucker for character stories.
I want to read a story in which the characters don’t fit perfectly. Where they complement each other when they’re happy but tear themselves apart in desperate situations. Where their relationship is healthy but not always, equal but not always, happy but not always.
I want to see characters suffer because that’s how I know they’re real.
I don’t ship to be happy. I ship to feel real. I ship because I love relationship dynamics, not relationships themselves. That’s why I don’t just have otps. I have brotps and dream teams and favorite family dynamics and favorite characters alone.
I ship because I like to see how a given character will respond to another given character in any given situation. I like to see how they mesh together, how their personalities match and mismatch, how they push and pull at each other and then come together or fall apart.
I don’t ship for the what of the situation. I ship for the how and the why. Don’t give me characters waywardly thrown together for the perfect puzzle-piece ending. Give me the two people who would seemingly never fit. Make it work. I don’t want fireworks or fairytales. I want realism. Passion and lack thereof. Heat and coldness and love and hate.
Don’t give me love. Give me character. Don’t just tell me. Convince me.
THIS THIS THIS THIS.
THIS IS WHY I LOVE THE CRACK PAIRINGS THAT I DO. It’s not about them never even meeting and that makes no sense, it’s about the possibilities of their interaction if they ever did meet. How would it affect them. THAT’S WHY I LOVE MY CRACK PAIRINGS.
Mum: don't talk to strangers
Me: they're not strangers, we're in the same fandom
DEAR ALL FANDOMS.
Listen to this song, look at the gifs.
sorry were yOU TRYING TO DESTROY MY SOUL?!
WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT TO ME? :’(
I CAN’T. THERE ARE TOO MANY FEELS.
WHY WOULD YOU EVER, EVER DO THIS TO ME.
The song’s known as ‘Doomsday’ by Murray Gold, and it’s one, if not the, most upsetting thing I have ever heard #sobbing
