I just realised, they all just so happen to be gay #sorrynotsorry
Btw, I might add some quotes from the books these ships come from, so there might be some spoilers (don’t say I didn’t warn you).
I don’t give a damn if JK says they’re straight – to me, these two are as straight as a spiral.
I mean, c’mon:
Albus looks at Scorpius and his heart breaks.
Scorbus and Draco are like the only thing worth saving from HP and the cursed child
Draco’s my baby, and as much as I like the concept of Dramione, I ship Drarry too. I mean, they’re sworn enemies, and as the saying goes in Spanish, “those who argue love each other” (it sounds better in OV, i swear).
If I can’t have either Drarry nor Scorbus as canon, at least I can have Snowbaz. Rowell, unlike JK, knows how to do things properly.
And when I felt myself slipping too far, I held on to the one thing I’m always sure of –
The fact that Simon Snow is the most powerful magician alive. That nothing can hurt him, not even me.
That Simon Snow is alive.
And I’m hopelessly in love with him
I swear my heart stopped there.
Oh, and also:
I just want to kiss him, and then go.
“Simon…” I say.
And then he kisses me.
Damen and Laurent. MY BABIES. They are my absolute favorite queer ship. I love both of them so much (specially baby Laurent), and I could never ever stop recommending the Captive Prince trilogy to anyone who likes action and queer romance (oh, and did I mention that it features loads of explicit gay sex?😏)
I think if I gave you my heart, you would treat it tenderly
Wylan ins my cinnamon roll, and Jesper is the sassiest character in the world. Their flirting all thoughout Six of Crows and half of Crooked Kingdom gave me life (that’s literally translated from a Spanish expression, and it mean it makes me very happy. I couldn’t find another nice way to put it).
“If only you could talk to girls in equations”
There was a long silence, and then, eyes trained on the notch they’d created the link, Wyland said, “Just girls”
Jesper restrained a grin. “No. Not just girls”
(No te digo nada, y te lo digo tó)
“I told you, I just like your stupid face”
Ever the romantic, Jesper.
It’s been a long time since I stopped reading the TMI books, but I remember Malec being absolutely perfect ❤
PATROCLUS + ACHILLES
My heart can’t even stand the thought of them without breaking. They’re the most beautiful thing in the world. They’re love is so pure, so terribly, tragically, brutally beautiful I cannot properly talk about it without sounding like a madwoman.
Had she really thought I would not know him? I could recognize him by touch alone, by smell, I would know him blind, by the way his breaths came and his feet struck the earth. I would know him in death, at the end of the world.
The never-ending ache of love and sorrow. Perhaps in some other life I could have refused, could have torn my hair and screamed, ans made him face his choice alone. But not in this one. He would sail to Troy and I would follow, even into death.
Yes, I whispered. Yes.
Can I please cry already? 😭
He is half my soul, as the poets say.
MONTY + PERCY
Monty’s an asshole, but poor Percy is such a sweet thing. They’re relationship moves forwart excruciatingly slowly (all thanks to Monty’s idiocy), but it’s all worth it in the end.
Though I could have done without any of it – the drinking and the parying and the revelers in a whirpool around us – so long as Percy and I were together. The would could have been a blank canvas and I still would have been exactly this livid with happiness, just to be with him.
HAZAN + CLARENCE (Títeres de la magia)
Serán adorables. Ojalá hubiera más fanart para expresar con imágenes lo adorables que son estos dos personajes. La manera en la que su relación pasa de la amistad al amor (a pesar de las reticencias de Hazan, que en un primer momento no se ve preparado para admitir que le gusta su tutor), y se convierte en una unión terriblemente fuerte de la que se benefician ambos.
Cuando lo abracé, me di cuenta de que me había enamorado de él.
“Sí. Quiero… Creo… que deberíamos hablar. Bueno, en realidad creo que debería besarte toda la vida y nada más, pero la razón me dice que deberíamos tener una conversación.
Oh, y por cierto. Iria y Selene escribieron un fragmento así picantón con Clarence y Hazan, que os dejo aquí.
