The same? Probably not - unlike you and your partner, Nine, Ten, and Eleven are all fundamentally the same character; they're all the Doctor. You are two different people with different strengths and weaknesses, different things to love about you. Equally, though? Heck, yeah! Sounds like you've made a lovely triad; here's to much love together.

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 03:49 am (UTC)(link)
I was about to say exactly this. I can't conceive of loving two people the same way, but equally? Yes, that I totally understand. I really hope your arrangement works out OP!

I think OP probably meant something like the same amount, rather than for the same reasons.

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 12:37 am (UTC)(link)
Aw! This makes me smile :)

This secret boggles my mind a little bit. Not that it's not sweet, but I personally can't wrap my head around functional, non-jealousy infested, relationship triads. It's probably a personal problem and I know they exist, but I just don't understand.

(In any case, congrats OP!)

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 01:15 am (UTC)(link)
Aww congrats to you. Your tiny secret gave me warm fuzzies.

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 01:17 am (UTC)(link)
Go you :)

Although I don't see the comparison considering they're essentially the same person, minus the quirks, and minus the inconsistencies from more than one writer, BUT WHATEVER. It worked out for you, and this is swell ♥

Yeah, but just because they factually are the same person, doesn't mean to an observer they are effectively the same person. Hence Doctor wars.

That's why the second part of my comment with "minus ___" is there. I can see the train of thought here, especially when a specific actor pulls off (or fails) a moment more than another, but not when it applies to two different

Okay wait. Scratch what I said earlier. Was writing my comment, and now OP's logic suddenly makes a ton of sense to me.

That's adorable. Good for the three of you.

I love it when relationships work out! And I can see your point; even if they technically are the same character, they each have different quirks, and the actor brings them to life in different ways.

It's strange how fiction sometimes gives you insight in a area you totally don't expect. :)

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 03:29 am (UTC)(link)
Like others have said the comparison isn't completely the same, but I'm glad it helped you! And yay, glad things are working well for you, anon!!!

(Anonymous) 2011-12-30 03:58 am (UTC)(link)
(I think) I am in a similar situation to anon. Hopefully op!anon is talking about a threesome relationship?

I haven't exactly fully become comfortable yet with my relationship, because sometimes it's really, really awkward. The two men have been together for awhile now, and the dating dynamic is weird because we do things as a "group". Even though we do things together that people in a relationship do normally (especially, exclusivity in dating/sex), I sometimes feel like the third wheel and not like an equal partner in our relationship =C and sometimes I feel like I'm just "short-term". Even though the sex/companionship is great especially the sex, I don't know if I actually love both these guys, because I'm not sure if they would actually love me back since, again, I feel "short-term" sometimes. Sometimes I think I should just break away from them and sometimes I think I'm just waiting for them to tell me it's over.

And since I'm technically in a relationship with two other guys, it's not like I can really discuss it with anyone, because it is kinda abnormal. I can already see my father reaching for the shovel if I ever had to explain it to my parents.

I'm not sure if OP's situation was similar, but damn it's nice to know that maybe there's another person out there in a similar situation. *waves hand at OP*

Also. What show is this?

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 04:19 am (UTC)(link)
The show is Doctor Who.

Also feel free to PM me. I'm in a relationship with a established couple as well. It has its ups and downs and I'm not sure how it'll all work out, but if you need someone to talk to...

I'd like to say that you can PM me as well. I'm quite shy, but it would be nice to talk to someone in a vaguely similar situation.

<3 I love this secret. I love the comments on this secret. I love knowing that not everyone judges people who have these relationships. I am married to a wonderful man and I have an amazing girlfriend and I love them both equally. I love knowing that other people have non-traditional relationships.

...just so much love right now.

(Anonymous) 2011-12-30 07:16 am (UTC)(link)
I think that if it's healthy for everyone in the relationship (like, no major jealousy issues and stuff like that), then is kind of relationship is absolutely wonderful. I love that there are people out there who can devote themselves to more than one person without things getting weird. Go you. ♥

[identity profile] 2011-12-30 06:02 am (UTC)(link)
That's so wonderful, OP!

[identity profile] 2011-12-31 09:37 am (UTC)(link)
Fuck yeah, happy poly moments. :D
