FULL VIEW! THY WINGS COMMANDITH YE!
I figured my pens and markers needed a break, so I decided to try out my new colored pencils. Been a while since Iíve done anything with those. At any rateÖ
THAT RING NEEDS TO DIE! Iím serious! Donít get me wrong, I love a good D/S story, but itís really starting to irritate me how so many people have adopted the Wes ring as the symbol of the D/S relationship. I think everyoneís forgetting a few key facts about the stupid thing;
1.) Danny had meant to give it to Valerie. (Which I wasnít too happy about, given the fact that Samís name was still on it. You think Danny would be smarter then thatÖ Then again, he was taking dating tips from Jack Fenton, of all people, so I guess that doesnít rate his intelligence too high, ne?)
2.) The only reason Samís name was on it was because of Jack. (It was a little presumptuous of him to do that, but then again it *is* JackÖ at any rate, Danny never intended to have it engraved to Sam, considering that he didnít even know it existed until his dad gave it to him.)
3.) Danny did not give Sam the ring as a way to secretly tell her that he was madly in love with her. (LET THIS ONE DIE ALREADY!!!! Danny was depressed over his break up, he wouldíve given the ring to TUCKER if heíd been the one to approach Danny first! Itís a total insult to Dannyís character to assume heís shallow enough to move on just like that.)
4.) Even if Danny and Sam do get together, the ring should still be left out of the relationship. (This is just a personal opinion of mine. Recycled tokens of affection seem extremely tacky to me, and Sam deserves to get better then that. Especially given that she knows itís a recycled token of affection. Thereís no way sheíll be able to look at that ring without thinking about how it was originally meant for Valerie, which would in turn lead to her feeling totally insecure about the relationship.)
OkayÖ I think thatís allÖ Definitely feel better now that Iíve got that off my chestÖ DOWN WITH THE WES RING!
Iím done now.
