Okay, schist got real on Tuesday, and the story has been passed along. And we all know what happens then: facts are left out, or one side is shown more so it’s favored over the other.
Of all people, I’ve been in the middle since the beginning, and know it all from both sides. [And trust me, it's been hard.]
And here is the story I have donned as “Who Shot Cupid’s Arrow”. Sit back and grab some popcorn folks, because after all…
All’s fair in like and war.
Once upon a 2014, there was a girl named Mickey.
Mickey started to like a boy named The Doctor. The Doctor was in her Spanish class, so they would see each other every day. To her, he was funny and outgoing, and this year they became really good friends. He was nice, didn’t judge her, and didn’t care what others thought about him.
The Doctor liked Mickey back. Aw, simple right? Sadly, that isn’t the case. He waited a while to ask her out. [A couple months previous, he had just broken up with one of her best friends. He couldn't just ask her out so soon after the break up... That just isn't right.] He also wanted to ask her out at the perfect moment… Valentine’s Day. He even had chocolate ready to give to her.
Aww. Mickey even thought it would be really sweet if she ever got asked out on the famous holiday.
Oh but Houston, we have a problem. The weather is insanity these days… Maybe Apollo is feeling hotter than usual, or maybe Elsa can’t keep her ice powers under control or Jack Frost is just having fun. Who knows?
It was so bad, school was cancelled. And on Valentine’s Day of all days.
So in the end, he didn’t get to ask her out… But that isn’t the entire problem here.
The musical is a beautiful thing isn’t it? Everyone is there like a big, happy bunch of crazy amazing people. There are practices practically every day, some are mandatory and some aren’t. The Doctor didn’t go to several of the not mandatory rehearsals, because it’s your “days of rest” and whatnot. And since he is not there, Mickey is left to hang out with all of us… And our other friend Dipper.
After a while, she started to like him too.
Dipper is on her team, and in her Science class. To her, he is funny, easy to get along with, and nonjudgmental. Plus she thinks he has a good taste in music, and he also likes her favorite YouTuber of all time. *cough*PEWDIEPIE*cough*
Anyway, back to the story.
Since The Doctor isn’t there, Dipper has to hang out with Mickey and me, and as I have noticed lately… Mostly Mickey.
Turns out he likes her too. And the plot thickens…
Mickey likes Dipper back, but she did like The Doctor first.
She has thought about it, and she can’t decide who she likes more. “Which one is better? Which one is nicer? Which one has a better personality?” They’re both equal to her. She can’t choose.
Now we are at Tuesday, February 18th. It’s been several days since Valentine’s Day passed, and The Doctor hasn’t yet made a move, and Dipper decided to confess.
Not necessarily ask her out, but just confess and tell her that he really liked her. He waited a while to tell her because he wanted to be sure that he did like her, but I don’t believe that’s the only reason.
Dipper and The Doctor are best friends, and have known each other even before middle school. They are really close and everything. And they both like the same girl.
I warned him of how complicated everything would get, and oh snap. Everything following that went downhill.
Dipper wanted to confess to Mickey, yes. Before his friend could come in and take her away. Because who was going to get the girl? The one who told her first.
But whenever he tried to talk to her alone, The Doctor would come and wouldn’t leave them alone. Because of this, Dipper had to tell The Doctor why he was trying to talk to Mickey. In other words, tell his best friend that they both like the same girl.
The Doctor felt like his best friend was betraying him, and the girl he waited so long to ask out was at risk of being taken away. There wasn’t much room for discussion, the so called “talk” lasted not that much longer than three minutes.
Five minutes after this, The Doctor goes up to Mickey and asks her if she will go out with him. And Mickey says sure, not knowing about Dipper yet.
It was a competition to see who would get her first, in the beginning. The Doctor waited, and tried to make up his missed opportunity. He also felt like his best friend was betraying him, and didn't know that a confession isn’t the same as asking out a girl. Dipper knew that The Doctor liked Mickey, and tried to get to her first. He wanted to tell her that he really liked her, and just confess. But his friend kept interfering, and ended up asking her before he could even say a single word.
Thinking and talking things through does not seem to be a common thought through all of this, apparently.
She isn’t a prize to be won, and they know that. I asked if she could have time to think. The Doctor said, “Absolutely, I didn’t want her to feel pressured” and Dipper said “Yep, whatever happens, happens”.
All of this is true. And here we are, with the story of a girl. Torn between the two, doesn’t know who to choose, and doesn’t know what path to go down on.
No matter what she chooses, someone is going to get hurt.
And that is the end of Part I of our epic saga...
