Inktober - Day 19 - Loop
Tumblr media
They think they're tired of this song? Once I figure out the magic, I'm going to loop the same two lines again and again...That's the part that hurts the most, and I've decided that it helps to hurt the most.
- Any Way the Wind Blows, Chapter 16, Rainbow Rowell
As someone who will listen to the same sad song on endless replay, I get it.

So @carryonsimoncarryonbaz and I were back on our bullshit, yelling in DMs about our unabashed love for Wayward Son and how it’s necessary and probably the best book of the trilogy (I said what I said, I will absolutely fight on this) and this was born the following badge:
Tumblr media
“Hey, Stardust,” I heard you say through clenched teeth, “why would you say such a controversial and hot take; are you some kind of edge lord who hates happiness?”
No. Because the end of Carry On wasn’t true happiness. That was bullshit. They were broken and drifting, both in their space and from each other. You can’t survive that way; LOVE can’t survive that way. Love isn’t passive- it’s active. That’s the entire point of Simon’s post-breakup realization. It finally sinks in that love isn’t effortless and meant to be; you have to make it happen. Every day. Every day, you have to choose to make love happen and he wasn’t doing that. Baz was, and that’s another reason that book was so stunning and perfect and glorious - you get that inside look at Baz settling because he was settling. I know you don’t like it, but he was. He thought that’s what love was and the breakup was like a bucket of ice water over his head. Sure he moped, but he processed all those things that had been buried but there during WS. HE HAD TO IN ORDER TO DEMAND THE LOVE HE DESERVED. And he had to do he could make that boundary with Simon.
Love has boundaries. I have boundaries with my husband and sometimes, we screw up. Sure, we could choose to stop working on the love and our relationship would die, as it should. But we don’t. We move forward and work together to fix it. That’s what WS set up. It set up a precipice for Simon and Baz- one way leads to destruction of the relationship and survival of the individual, the other leads to a more meaningful and fulfilling relationship and survival as a pair. You can’t have it otherwise.
And I could literally rant about this forever but yeah. It’s the best book.

Baz takes a step back, into the living room. His hand is on the door. And he's looking at me the way he did in my flat last night, like I've got a knife in his heart, and I'm holding it there.
Any way the wind blows. Rainbow Rowell

Not only did Simon find his family in AWTWB, but so did Baz. Baz adopts Simon's family, as we've seen in WS-how he thinks of Penny as family. It's nice to know that there's an adult in Baz's life that he can openly talk to while sorting things out with his parents and aunt Fiona (no shade on them, there just so much baggage in the way of open communication that has to be worked through).

Inktober - Day 18 - Moon
"How do you think the goats are getting out over the wall, Agatha?"
"I thought they were jumping. They're magickal, flying goats?"
- Any Way the Wind Blows, Chapter 31, Rainbow Rowell
When I was about eight I had a poster or pencil case or something with a Pegasus flying in front of the moon, looking almost painfully magical. You know the type. Did you have one too? I tried to recreate that scene, but use a goat. I like the result. It looks like it would eat a patch of caustic poison ivy, poop on the roof and then soar over the school walls.

unpopular opinion: sometimes... fandom isn't that important. sometimes fandom isn't "that deep" to someone. sometimes people don't interact within the fandom and like to watch from afar. sometimes people just want to look at cool art or read cool fanfics, and that's it.
let's normalize fandom being a hobby or an interest and not a lifestyle. normalize taking a step back, taking time off and disconnecting from fandom without feeling bad. it's okay and healthy to prioritize yourself over media instead of consuming it 24/7. it's okay to set boundaries and enjoy something the way you need.
