Grrrr.... by WingsofMorphius Grrrr.... by WingsofMorphius
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!

Ö

Iím done now.

I agree wholeheartedly, that ring bugs me too...

he's an idiot to say "whos was?"

then again, sam isn't none to intelligent either, she didn't get the ring either...

I agreed WHOLEHEARTEDLY about this ring...In fact, I've only read one story involving this ring that I liked, and thats because it actually drove a wedge between Danny and Sam, starting a chain reaction to bigger stuff. And it mad Sam angry because she found her name engraved on it, knowing Danny intended giving it to Valerie, i.e. recycled token of affection like you said.

But I really agree with you, this ring needs to be melted to scrap before I read another "Wes" story and barf!

Good points. But it was SO FUNNY when she said "Wes? Who's Wes?" Yeahh...I didn't know people were using that as a symbol now >.>
Actually, it does sort of work. He got over Valerie, so now it's going to its true owner...

That's not what I'm saying, a gift originally meant for one girl shouldn't just be handed over to any other like that, since it makes Danny look cheap and superficial.

:lmao: I completely agree with your stand. Specially with your point about recycled tokens of affection. Heck... Sam (supposedly) doesn't like conventional things, right? So why would she make an exception when it comes to making a relationship 'official' with a ring or any other token?

*Sigh* People can be weird sometimes... (:roll: No, really? =P)

I hate the WES ring with a passion, though I loved Danny's obsessing over it in FWD. ("I have to give her the ring, she's not my girlfriend until I give her the ring")

I agree with all over those points. Especially the last one. If Danny does love Sam, he wouldn't give her the ring. That's just insulting.

We should start an anti-Wes club :XD:

>_< Thank you! Glad to know I am not the only one who is bothered by the WES ring.

If Danny is gonna give Sam a ring at some point, fine. I don't really care. Infact, I think the idea of that is pretty cute. But for crying out loud. If he gets her a ring, get her a different one and not use the stinking WES one. You know how cheap that'll make him look? I'm just saying.

Because Danny still couldn't see that se liked him more then as friends. That bothers me a little too, actually, considering the fact that I think Danny would notice if he wasn't busy forthing to protect himself and those around him while still attemtpting to pass high school. That's enough stress to load on once kid without getting all over their case because thier best friend is too shy to come out with how she really feels.

I think the ring is pretty. XD; It's a pretty color. Although there should be something else as a token for their (pending) relationship, that's the only tangible thing that hard core D/S fans ( aka myself) have. XD;

Okay, okay, I think the ring is a little bit stupid, but hey, whatever, man. :D

Btw, nice blow torch.
