Okay. Think it’s time I talk about this moment properly. Held off all day but thread incoming #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
I wasn’t an Earper back in 2016. By the end of the year I had heard of both the show and Wayhaught but I could not bring myself to watch. The Bury Your Gays was strong that year and my head and heart couldn’t take it. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
In 2013 like a whole lot of the world I was obsessed with OITNB and obviously I am a Vause woman BUT boy oh boy did Poussey Washington steal my heart also. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
By 2016 Poussey had become one of my favourites in the series. Like she did everyone really. And like everyone else I was disturbed. Deeply. By what happened to her character. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
While I acknowledge what happened was important to address the disgusting murders POC face in prison systems and in the world and I do think the story was well done, I do have to wonder why they picked the lesbian to be that character. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
Particularly as Poussey and Soso were starting to become a really steady and solid couple. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
Next up I’d be remiss if I didn’t talk about Lexa from The 100. And I’m going to be remiss because I’m still far too salty to talk about that. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
Denise of The Walking Dead. Like what was the point in that death really? Yeah yeah comic blah blah but it didn’t, and doesn’t, sit right with me that she was the first of Negans kills. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
I know there are more but those are just three from the shows I watched. 3 LGBTQA+ women killed on 3 different shows in 1 year. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
I knew that I couldn’t face another. And because of all these and more I knew in my heart and my soul that whoever this Wayhaught was, they wouldn’t last because one of them would die. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
I mean, to feel that sure about it is scary but it’s not surprising is it. Because TV shows never know what to do with with the queer characters do they? #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
There’s only ever 3 stories with them: the realisation and dramatic coming out, the pursuit of happiness and gaining it, and then death at the wedding. That’s it! That’s our lot. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
Crumbs then death. That’s all we as viewers deserved. And then along came Emily and her WEARP Team and wrapped Nicole in a bulletproof vest that might have well have had “fuck you tropes” stitched into it #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
Like I say, I wasn’t around at the time but I can only imagine the exhales of relief. The delight. The “fucking finally” feelings everyone must have gone through. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
No one is doing it like Wynonna Earp. And it’s worth the fight. They fight for us. #WynonnaEarp #BringWynonnaHome
