so i just reblogged another rose an mickey gifset
they always make me cry. they’re SO MUCH like my best friend and me. we loved each other so much when we dated, and he was a little stupid about how to be a good partner and i was REALLY stupid about how not to be a fucking jerk to someone (we were very young), but through it all, we knew that we were there for each other. we grew up in NYC about 6 blocks from each other (though we didnt meet till high school); even went to the same playground. He taught me how to roll cigarettes and play guitar, I taught him how to dance and not be scared of talking to people. He’s the most supportive fucker in the whole world. And when Rose and Mickey talk about “you and me off the old estate going and seeing the stars” oh my god that resonates. we sat in his dad’s smoke filled apartment drinking king cobra and Ballantines for so many years, and now every beautiful thing we do feels like seeing stars.
so, in case anyone cared, this is why rose and mickey mean so much to me. exes and besties. flawed and flawless.
PLus the brotp portmanteau can TOTALLY BE RICKEY OMG
