Quote ErikaKayy: I always seem to get insightful when I'm in bed. Weird.
I said I was done but I need to get this off my chest.
I have shipped these two blindly, debated with a few haters & chewed out some people on a intellectual level because outright attack someone for what they ship is whack & frankly stupid.
Every time Villy has fought there's been a glimmer of hope. Something. This time all I see is a dark abyss that will eventually lead to divorce. Prove me wrong. I wanna be.
I fell in love with Billy & Victoria not just because Billy Miller & Amelia Heinle had chemistry that intrigued me. I fell for them because Victoria matured Billy while Victoria allowed Billy to discover that there was more to being Victor's daughter & the heir apparent to NE, and she had a playful, silly side. While business is very much a part of her core as a person, all of a sudden Victoria was smiling more & laughing and she just lit up from the inside. Billy, with Victoeia in his life, was his saving grace. Literally and figuratively. He got his ish together, became a more attentive dad to Delia & although still funny and witty, actually grew up when it was called for.
They went through horrible things but at least they had brains. There was a logic to it, no matter how convuluted and twisted it was to me. Something there always made me sympathize & root for them.
Now, it's a different story for me.
There's no logic to anything right now. None. I always said that I'd be okay with Villy splitting if it was done right (...if they even split at all -- I don't know), and it's not. It's really not. The idea that these two could have a kid that would tie their little family was a joke. I'm sorry I ever hoped for that. Serves me right.
Nothing makes sense & I'm left scratching my head with Villy & the show in general. I want to escape & be entertained. I dont want to be lefy feeling confused & stupid. I hate when shows treat me like I'm stupid. Shipping Villy isn't fun for me anymore. It hasnt been for sometime now. If they're regressing, what is the point? There is none. The show in general, is not fun for me anymore.
So, I'm done. I quit. Until they write these two with half a brain & some actual sense, I'm going just tap out.
The hour I use to watch Y&R will be used for something else. I will write any Y&R stuff I promised because I don't like people hanging. And lo & behold, people actually like my writing. Weird in an appreciative sort of way.
My friendships with all of you are built on a ship, yes, but it goes deeper than that for me. This has been an incredible three years. Posting. Writing. Debating. Fangirling. All of it. Thank you. It's been an experience I won't forget <3
Somewhere deep down I mostly won't forget Villy either whether their paths cross again & their paths are pulled apart.
Once again thank you.
As Villy's song says, "Until We Meet Again",
If you leave, you will surely be missed. I too love your insights. I will continue to look for and enjoy your fanfics. Especially if they are Villy. I know you tend to write along the lines of the show, and create terrific private moments in between what is actually happening. Since you are discouraged, they might not inspire you much anymore, but I love to read what you think they should be, and how their story should play out. I know you've sort of done that with the 50 words piece, but I just can't get too much.
I hope you'll come back to post with us again really soon.
