Anonymous asked: Someone mentioned on another website that effy and emily is possible and are more fitted and more compatible than naomily. DO you think that's right? Or is effily possible even? If naomi wasn't in the equation and in another reality, do you think effily could happen and would last?
For the purposes of this dialogue, I need to consider Emily as series 3 Emily, because series 4 Emily was only a by product of her history with Naomi. I’m not saying Emily would have never affirmed herself without Naomi, but, let’s face it, Naomi was a huge incentive. Also, it’s because Katie is so threatened by Emily’s feelings for Naomi that she gets super protective, enough so that Emily can’t stand it anymore.
Right, that being said, I don’t think Effily could be possible in that context. Emily is too fragile for someone like Effy. I mean, Naomi wasn’t even that nice to her and it really hurt her, Effy would have crushed Emily.
Emily would have wanted something more serious and committed and Effy wasn’t like that. Let’s all remember that series 3 Effy would have either A) not loved Emily back and therefore embarked in a friends with benefits relationship with her or B) loved her back and therefore ignore her. Series 4 Effy wasn’t much better guys. She was sick and in need of professional help. Even if Skins totally screwed up on that particular story line, Effy really did need professional help.
Also, I find it hard to see, Effily I mean, because I can’t help thinking that Emily’s emotional side would have been plain too much for Effy. I mean, Freddie wasn’t THAT emotional and she couldn’t handle his feelings. I can’t help thinking that Emily would have been worse… Probably more clingy. And could she have really taken all the shit Effy pulled? I mean, how many times did Effy break up with Freddie? Poor lad.
So no. I don’t see Effily happening.
