Two years and a month ago, a Sherlock RP blog was introduced to an Irene Adler RP blog by an OC RP blog named Audrey. Audrey’s mun, Ivanaa, knew the two and decided that they needed to meet because she thought that they would be fast friends (Sabrina would like to add that Ivanaa shipped those muns from the beginning). She couldn’t have been more right. Sherlock and Irene muns (Rachel and Sabrina respectively) hit it off. They talked OOC on the blog, through messages, sharing secrets, gushing about fandoms, sharing pain and joy. They moved on to skype and text messages and became even closer. A year after the introduction, they spoke on the phone together. May 13, 2013, the conversation went like this:
Sabrina: You’re cute.
Rachel: I’m not cute, I’m a dork.
Sabrina: Hey, so…Hypothetically, if I was to ask you to be my dork…
A lot of giggling ensued and the two were bonded. They began to talk all the time, over text, and quickly on the phone. Sabrina listened and supported Rachel through College, visiting during vacation and shared her 21st birthday. Five months into the relationship, she traveled 2,672 miles to continue a romance that was still new and their love was set in stone.
Now, approaching the halfway mark to our second anniversary, Sabrina and I would like to announce that we are engaged to be married sometime in the near future and that she will be making her dream move to California before the year is out. Then we will have our happily ever after.
And we met on TUMBLR!
