#fuuuuuuuuck you man #i still get otalia pangs sometimes #they were so beautiful #remember how this was the only time they kissed? #hahahahahahahahaha #laughing bc it's tragic #otalia #guiding light


"But see, that’s just who she is. She’s just innately good. She’s decent, she’s kind, she’s warm, she’s beautiful and she’s a lot stronger than people give her credit for. She has worked her whole life, and not for herself, but for other people. So even after I got out of the hospital— and I didn’t want to live— she fought for me. She fought for me to live. And not just for me, but for my daughters, because she wanted them to have their mother there. And now we have a home, and it’s different. but it’s safe and it’s warm and it’s decent, and that’s because of her.
That’s because of who she is. That’s because of what she makes it."

Favorite Lesbian Ships - Olivia/Natalia - Guiding Light
Natalia: I am thinking clearly. Probably for the first time I am. I can’t marry Frank!
Olivia: Yes, you can! You can marry Frank!
Natalia: No. I don’t love him. I love you! I love you, Olivia.
Olivia: Do you know what you’re saying?
Natalia: At Gus’ memorial, when you told me that you loved me… I wasn’t exactly surprised.
Olivia: You weren’t?
Natalia: I think that I’ve known for a while, and I was just so afraid to actually hear it, that I would change the subject.
Olivia: We could do that now, if you want? Last chance.
Natalia: No. Whatever this is— I— this doesn’t happen, not in my world. And it really scares me. And then something changed. Something happened, and I started to feel the same way that you felt. And I don’t know when. I don’t know— I don’t know if we were getting Emma together, to take her to school. I don’t know if we were just sitting around and talking and it just felt so right. But it happened. And I realized…
Olivia: What?
Natalia: That you are my family. That you are everything to me. If that’s not love…

Guiding Light - Natalia/Olivia
Natalia: You’re talking about Emma, and how you share her with me. And I think that’s so…
Olivia: Not that kind of partner. Natalia, they think that we’re close. They think that we’re very close. They think we love each other.
Natalia: Well, we do. And I know we don’t always say it, and I know we argue about everything, but, you know, deep down…
Olivia: Oh, my gosh! Do I have to hit you over the hit with it? They think were … [kisses her]


I was a bit nostalgic today and watched some of this storyline. Even after all this time, I will always laugh at this. Natalia is so clueless, it is adorable. Olivia is so frustrated that kissing Natalia is the only logical step. I choose to forget that their storyline didn’t involve more making out and just involved lots of sexual hugging even after they declared themselves soulmates. Urgh, okay, I’ll stop talking now before I ruin this gif set.

“I don’t know when this happened. I-I-I just know that somewhere along the line you just stopped being my roommate, and my friend, and Emma’s other mommy, and even the person who gave me Gus’ heart. You became the woman I love. And, I know that it’s a sin in your book, and I get that, and I get that Frank can give you love, and security, and a home for you and Rafe. And, you know what, I-I could give you a home too but it can never be as safe as anything Frank can offer you. […] All I could offer you is whispering, and-and, uh, cancelled playdates for Emma, and-and-and tormenting Rafe, you know, at a time when he needs to feel like he can make a fresh start. […] This would be so much worse, it would be a world of trouble and, I don’t want that for you! […] You’re gonna get hurt. I can’t-I can’t live with that. I love you, but I don’t know what offering my love will do to you. It will ask you to change who you are, and what you believe, and that would make this whole thing a lie, wouldn’t it?” 

My original Jane Rizzoli <3

Forever my favorite soap OTP… These ladies did amazing things with what little they were given.

Oh god, why does this always happen?

Reading the Otalia Manifesto and internally weeping.

Remember early Otalia? And how beautiful it was?

Natalia: All I really wanted to do was just come back here. I wanted to come back here and be with you. (02/16/09)

…I am no longer just internally weeping.

#otalia #guiding light #reading this and going back over this storyline just makes me ache because so much of it makes me think of my two otps at the moment -- téa/blair and jane/maura -- and how much i want them to be canon #but then i think about how fucked up otalia got and i start having all these feelings #ALL OF THE FEELINGS: I HAVE THEM


Forever my favorite tweet ever.

This.
I’m glad for the All My Children gay ladies and all that, but I keep thinking GOD DAMMIT THAT SHOULD HAVE BEEN GUIDING LIGHT.

I don&#8217;t think mad is the appropriate word. It lacks the hate and anger and rage that I feel towards Ellen Wheeler and the show in general for screwing us out of having one fucking proper kiss.

OMG, Guiding Light/Reva Shayne mention on One Life To Live!

"Maybe they’re clones. I’m serious! You want everything to be the same, get a clone. It happened to some woman in Springfield, I read about it!"

Why do all of my late night YouTube excursions end up with me watching Otalia videos and faux-sobbing?

Now I’m watching the scene when Olivia and Doris were eating ice cream in Liv’s office and Olivia kissed Doris on the cheek. 

I JUST MISS THEM ALL SO MUCH.
