I love how I had said to myself that I didn’t see myself making a post like this, but here I am anyway, with super girthy cankles after 3 days of walking around Manhattan, while Izzy flies across the country to her home on the West Coast. so hey it’s been almost one year since Izzy and I first bonded over our shared derision for Mary Crawley hating numbnuts. things kinda escalated rapidly and steadily from there, and now even though she’s on semi-hiatus from Downton fandom and instead spams my dash with The Lizzie Bennet Diaries and even if I were to find out that she secretly writes Hughes/Branson fic,
I can honestly sayI probably wouldn’t hold it against her. I guess what I’m trying to say is that it’s pretty great that our friendship transcended fandom itself AND I’M JUST REALLY HAPPY THAT WE ACTUALLY MET IN PERSON AND ATE AND BREATHED AND WALKED TOGETHER AND EVERYTHING WAS AMAZING. And yeah other things happened on our trip (like uhhhhh watching The Heiress from our orchestra seats and meeting Dan Stevens and conversing~ with Jessica Chastain), but tbh that was all just great backdrop. this post turned out to be even more ineptly written than I had envisioned. TLDR: I LOVE YOU IZZY.
