I cannot be coherent about this, so:

Imagine seeing on your screen a BLACK WOMAN, let us call her Kat Edison, being a protagonist and being involved in a canon romantic storyline with a MUSLIM IRANIAN LESBIAN, Adena El Amin.

Imagine seeing them KISSING ON YOUR SCREEN, IN THE YEAR OF OUR LORD 2017, WHILST A STREETLAMP CASTS ITS SOFT GLOW ON THEM AND AS ALESSIA CARA SINGS "YOU DON'T HAVE TO CHANGE A THING/ THE WORLD CAN CHANGE ITS HEART/NO SCARS TO YOUR BEAUTIFUL"

*breathes deeply*

*sips lemon water*

Kat: a trust-fund baby, relentless, brave, super smart and efficient and social media director of a magazine. Adena: passionate, self-proclaimed provocateur, proud, activist multilingual photographer. CANON WLWOC ON MY TV.

And we see them FLESHED OUT, and DEAL WITH THIS RELATIONSHIP IN WARM AND FUNNY AND ANGSTY AND TENDER AND DIFFICULT AND REAL WAYS, AND KAT COMING TO TERMS WITH BEING BI.

And as if I wasn't being fed enough the show decides to give me A HEALTHY FEMALE FRIENDSHIP AS ITS FOCAL POINT, a friendship amongst Kat and her two best mates Jane Sloan and Sutton Brady.

I admit I wasn't expecting much from "The Bold Type," but god damn. It delivered for me. It's the show I needed. You know that delightful fuzzy feeling when you're sitting back and sinking into your fave 20k-word fic after a looong week? That's it.

(My icon: my precious ones Kat and Adena. Intimidatingly gorgeous couple, both of them with intimidating-at-first personalities like woah.)
