when you genuinely like and care for someone but can’t express it without being weird
it doesn’t matter how many “pretend to be dating” fics i read, i’m always fucking in it headfirst every time and i fall for that shit every time. i know the pattern i know the plot twists i know what’s gonna happen but every single fucking time i’m fucking on the edge of my seat wide-eyed whispering like “what’s gonna happen are they gonna fall in love” to myself like of course they are you fucking idiot this happens EVERY TIME but as soon as i see the description and it’s like “x person and x person pretend to do the dating” it’s eternal sunshine of the stupidest fucking mind over here
slow build???????? nooo i want fast build i want tHE FASTEST BUILD i want orgasms in chapters one through four and “fuck i’m in love” by chapter five then i want misunderstandings from chapter 7 through chapter 9 and some sappy ass ending with an epilogue that makes me bury my face in my pillow and aggresively click away through my tabs and grin like an idiot because everything is great and my otp is gonna be in love fOREVER get that slow build shit outta my face if i wanted to know “will they won’t they” i’d just watch the fuckin show
P.S. The real world isn’t going to accommodate you and your “comfort.” When you get off Tumblr, there aren’t any trigger warnings. Wearing a nametag with your “gender identity” on it would be absolutely laughable. You’ll have to learn to be an adult and deal with people without being psychotic and wishing death on them.
Can’t wait for someone to tell me to turn off a pit bull song Bonita triggering ngl
