Death by OTP
January 4, 2016 § 2 Comments
My OTP is legit killing me. Every time they are alone together, one of them almost confesses their feelings, but then gets interrupted. I’ve tried reading fanfiction like I’ve done with my other OTPs, but all of them are set after the series had ended so I can’t read it without spoiling everything.
Everybody on the show knows that they are totally into each other. They stare as if they are the only two people in the galaxy. They get insanely jealous whenever the other one is in a relationship (which usually only lasts an episode), and they have no personal space whatsoever, but they still don’t let it go anywhere.
The worst part is that I know they will kiss in the last season, but I don’t want to binge the show so quickly that I don’t get to enjoy it. I can’t even begin to describe my feelings when they’re together. It’s like I want to cry, laugh, hug something, and die all at the same time. I just don’t know what to do! Please help!
Morgan, here’s what I want you to do.
Step 1. Buy a catburger.
Step 2. Live in that burger every time your OTP is on screen. The burger doth protect and sooth.
Addicts experience the highest high right before they take a drug. Lucky for us, we have safer, legal drugs. AKA OTP MAKEOUTS. This is why the moments before our ship sails into Canon City are the best ones. The feeliest of feels. So cherish them.
You’re doing exactly what you should be doing by not rushing your ship. By prolonging the end, you’re actually making yourself less tolerant to the feels (meaning you’ll have less of a hangover when you finish the show).
The arc of shipping is a lot like life when you think about it. We want to rush towards the best moments in our future, but we also want to stay still in the present when life is good. But time moves at its own pace.
There will be plenty of time for fic and AU headcanon when you finish the show. THESE MOMENTS, those prekiss moments, are the ones you’ll never be able to replicate. You can never unwatch a show, and experience that all over again. So live, dammit! Savor the moment. Squee like you’ve never squee-ed before. And above all, snuggle in the giant catburger we call life.
