"I love you. All of you. Not just the parts that are pretty, or sweet, or nice. I love your bitterness. I love your jagged edges. I love the scar left by your heartbreak. I love everything about you."
Penzima, from Encanta (via eshusplayground)
How the hell did this line from my play get so popular all of a sudden?
I know right??! We were just quietly passing it around the little Encanta fandom again… and then it exploded!
*sigh* really makes me wish there was more info along with the quote so that everyone could know where to reach the awesomeness that is your play…
For all of my followers who reblogged this, or liked it, or even stopped briefly in their scrolling to read it and thought it was lovely… Please give this another read, then reblog it and let your followers know, because honestly, if you thought this quote was nice, knowing the context makes it infinitely sweeter!
This quote is from a play, Encanta, written by the wonderful eshusplayground. I know a lot of people who follow me are here for the queer ladies and the femslash, and much like me, you desire more than most of our favorite shows will ever give us. You want canon relationships and queer main characters (and QTWOC main characters, though you always feel like that’s probably asking for too much) and happy endings where no one dies or ends up with a broken heart, and damnit! why can’t we have that all in a fantasy setting??? Well, that is what this play is all about! Encanta introduces us to a cast of characters who are all (Afro)Latin@ and LGBTQ, with the main characters being Penzima, a pirate, and Katrina, a witch who is an outcast in her community. Like many of us, Katrina has gone through life feeling that no one will ever love her and has decided that she must be undeserving of love. That is when Penzima says this line, and after everything we have witnessed the two of them go through, hearing this line is a sigh of relief.
If you reblog this again (or for the first time), please don’t delete this! Please please please go to Eshu’s blog and learn more about the play and support her as she works towards making it a reality. This is something we are constantly talking about wanting to see, and someone is trying to actually make it happen!
