I sort of like to think their relationship is like... the movie "Memoirs of a Geisha". If you've seen it? It's about a girl who meets a kind gentleman when she's younger, grows up into this lovely Geisha woman so that one day she could meet him again and make him happy. >w<
The age difference is just as large as these two, but it's so romantic how she grows up and is waiting for him. I can imagine Ib after leaving the gallery and promising to meet with Garry again, that she'd probably just as to go out
I'm in the middle of the book and I think you are definitely right
Did you know that Garry is only 18 years old? Then age difference is "only" 9 years, so in my opinion there's nothing bad in their relationship in future But oh my god, your headcanon is my headcanon, it indeed would be amazing
Aww I never read the book~ I bet it's better than the movie~ it always is.
Yeah I never thought it was too bad. I mean honestly I support the relationship, and I don't care what people think. It's cute, some people take it super seriously because they're worried it's child porn o.o; when in actuality we have movies like this everywhere, as well as art work. It's different if you're taking pictures of actual people... If Ib were a real little girl who was taking pictures with a real young man named Garry I would be worried. On the other hand, Garry and Ib aren't real people, they are a lovely pairing and we as fans can do WHATEVER WE WANT WITH THEM!!
To an extent of course since we don't own them.
Who ever dislikes it really should not even be poking their nose into this pairing.
Give it a try if you find some time, it's really good
Well, I have ambivalent feelings about those hipothetical real Ib and real Garry, because of course, their relationship would be suspicious BUT people would as well misunderstand it. In our world we are all worried about pedophilia, rapes and other horrible things, everything is sex-related and there's no place for pure feelings. I'm an idealist, I know but I still believe that such relationship of lovely little girl and caring young man without any sexual content would be possible.
And of course I agree that fiction is fiction and everything is possible in our heads and for God's sake, what's wrong with supporting such a cute couple? Seriously, there are worse things all over internet and nobody cares about it ._.
Yeah, in the end I believe Ib and Garry will find happiness no matter what. I enjoy them and they are a fanpairing, unless the creator says otherwise, they are simply a fanpairing. Today's people have their minds so far in the gutter that they can't see a simple relationship for how it pretty much is... either family wise or loving wise. If a child is being spanked they automatically think it's abuse, just like if two people are holding hands then they are automatically dating, and such.
