My whole life I’ve been looking to be a part of something special, to feel special, but the truth is that I am special.
Queerbaiting hurts because it’s just authors fucking mocking you for daring to hope that queer subtext might lead to explicit canon queer characters but “nope no representation for you you silly queers it might make cishet people uncomfortable and we value them more”
I felt it crucial to demonstrate that sex and romance aren’t the only ways that Bo measures a relationship’s worth, to give the show balance. Fans may have noticed that Kenzi clarified her hetero orientation at the end of episode one. That line was necessary because I was determined to protect their platonic-yet-epic BFF-ness, so I made sure it was written in as canon. Partly, this was to debunk the gay-panic cliche that bisexual people sexualize everyone, and are incapable of platonic friendship. But there was another, simpler and more personal reason: I think friendship is the fifth element…So, hidden in amongst all the romance and cleavage and threesomes, the Lost Girl Bo and Kenzi relationship is my own little love poem to all the BFFs out there who do it right.

old ships you forgot you loved that come back and just punch you right in the face
*looks at you seductively* *lowers glasses* i can’t see a thing
you and i, we fought in your past life. you weren’t always my favorite — you rubbed me the wrong way. but i never hated you. in fact, i thought you were incredible.
we all can change
