ok this is a night for realizing things but just.
while it’s OBVIOUS that fred’s best relationships / loves throughout her verses are ( they kind of have to be ) the exact opposite of what her dynamic with jimmy was, it’s kind of really blatant on a structural level when you think about the fact that jimmy FED into her unhealthy habit of serving, annihilating herself for others, to the point where her giving her everything still wasn’t enough and there was simply no way to make him satisfied —— it was a fight she would lose over and over again, and yet she would keep giving away bits of herself until, by the end of it, she was barely a shadow of who she used to be. whereas the partners she has / has had throughout her verses ( the ships i’m mainly thinking abt rn are kalix/fred, tom/fred, vince/fred although tangentially it also involves moafred — but really this applies to every ship w fred one way or another ) who have truly loved her have easily recognized this as unhealthy behavior on her part and have either tried to counter-act her instinct ( providing for her when she couldn’t provide for herself ) or pushed her to care for herself a little better.
and it’s! blatant in a lot of ways but it becomes absurdly clear when it comes to FOOD —— this is a bigger headcanon i’m gonna have to write but basically fred’s refusal to cook / learn to cook all comes down to jimmy demanding food be cooked for him and when fred failed to deliver ( she simply did not have the patience or the skill ) he’d find a new excuse to lash out and rain hell over her, hence why she dreads cooking so much now. and yet the people who have loved her the most throughout her verses, and this has been discussed through actual headcanons, have made food an important element of their dynamic, either cooking for her or bringing her food or taking the time to teach her how to sustain herself in a way, and i —— had no idea food, of all things, could be such a fundamental symbol of fred’s rebirth through love but holy shit, it is.

hi loves, so quick update regarding what i want to do with izzy, going forward. this blog will be archived, and i’m moving her to a new blog, for a fresh start. one thing i want to express though is that i’m going to be focusing on izzy a lot differently now. i don’t want to make things too rambly as usual, but i’m treating izzy as a 1x1 more, going forward. my main focus is going to be things with @hesalvation, since our threads and our development bring me joy and make me excited to write izzy, but i welcome other interactions, too. so long as we’re actively building a dynamic, or at least talking about a dynamic that works and compliments what moose and i have built nicely. this goes for blogwide, moving forward.
basically, what does this mean going forward? long story short, i’ll be super selective on this new blog going forward, and my focus is going to be the things that i have with moose, and anything else will be built to fit into our version our characters, and what expands what we’ve built <3

PLS what i wouldn’t do to be held,,, i’ve been staving off a breakdown all day fhskfjs i’m a mess 🤧,,, but!! i understand what you’re saying,,, but i don’t think it’s necessarily bad to feel out of place even if you’re in a good situation ! when i feel that way (n disclaimer this might make no sense) i like to liken it to a piece of decor,, it might look pretty in one room, but it might fit another room better, you know? (1/2)
(cont’d) n i think it’s the same with us ! nothing in life is rlly stagnant/stationary, so we’re always either adjusting to our environment or trying to adjust our environment to us ! i don’t rlly know where i was going with this but ig i’m trying to say don’t feel bad abt feeling that way?? even tho ik that’s super hard to do !! esp since we start feeling guilty since it’s like,,, i should appreciate what i have,,, but i think it’s natural in a way? like part of the growing process maybe?? - 🍄
