A HEARTWARMING LOVE STORY ABOUT TWO PEOPLE.

Naomi Campbell and Emily Fitch. Mrs and Mrs Campbell. Their story begins with once upon a time and ends with they lived happily ever after. They've loved each other since they were twelve years old, and though it was love at first sight, they were both too scared to tell each other how they felt. So Naomi ran and Emily chased. Emily saw something in Naomi that no one else did and that was what made her keep loving and chasing Naomi after so many years. And no matter how hard Naomi tried to deny her feelings or how fast or far she ran, she always ended up back with Emily.

They were each others' first and last kisses and each others' first and only loves. It was only when Naomi stopped running that they could become something. It was only when Emily took a chance and kissed Naomi again, that their story really began. Emily kissed Naomi and Naomi ran again, but not for long, because she realized that her feelings weren't something that could be pushed aside and ignored. They made love by a lake, held hands through a cat-flap, kissed breathlessly against a row of lockers, and laid their souls bare at the Love Ball.


But that wasn't the end. Like all epic love stories, things were never simple. They spent the best summer of their lives together, but as the summer ended, so did their happiness, and slowly their relationship began to unravel. Emily kept giving and Naomi kept taking, until they tore each other apart. Emily became the runner and Naomi, the chaser. But no matter what happened, they couldn't stop loving each other and they couldn't stay away.

They fought and cried and stripped each other of everything until nothing was left but love. Real, true love. Their journey was perilous and heartbreaking and more than they could bear at times, but it was all worth it in the end. They couldn't have gotten there -- the end, where their story both ended and began anew -- without the journey. And like every fairytale, like every epic love story, their story ended and began with a kiss.

And so, heartfelt declarations aside, they'll love each other forever. Soulmates. Lobsters.

Emily: I can see it now, in lights: Naomi, get to know me.
Naomi: I thought it was quite catchy.
Emily: Yeah, well, so's AIDS.
Naomi: Do you think I can do it?
Emily: I think you can do anything.
#2 | Naomi, 306


Naomi: Can we go somewhere? Anywhere.
#3 | Naomi, 306


Emily: Do you want to do blowbacks?
Naomi: I never got blowbacks. Why can't people just smoke the damn thing straight?
Emily: It's fun. Have you even tried it?
Naomi: No. But, being all-seeing, I already know it's s**t.
Emily: Come on, everything once.
#4 | Naomi, 306


Naomi: Say something.
Emily: I'm all about experiments, me.
#5 | Naomi, 306


Emily: I know you, Naomi. I know you're lonely. I think you need somebody
to want you. Well, I do want you. So, be brave. And want me back.
#6 | Naomi, 306


Naomi: I do want someone -- need someone. You were right.
Emily: And?
Naomi: And, when I'm with you, I feel like I'm a better person. I feel happier,
less ... alone. Less lonely. But it's not that simple, is it? Being with someone.
Emily: Isn't it?
Naomi: No. I mean, I don't know. I mean, I don't think so.
Can't we just sit like this? For a bit?
Emily: Yeah, we can. For a bit.

Emily: I'll miss you.
Naomi: I can't stand it. I can't.
#9 | Katie & Emily, 309


Naomi: Don't do that ...
Emily: No, you don't do that. I'm not your fcking experiment! ... I'm tired --
so sick and tired of it. We're still holding hands through a cat-flap, aren't we?
#10 | Katie & Emily, 309


Emily: I like girls. No, I like a girl. No. I love her. I love ... her.




why we love emily & naomi :
Why do we love Emily and Naomi? It's pretty easy to see why: they're made for each other. They've loved each other since they were both twelve years old, and while the journey was never easy, they never gave up and they never stopped loving each other, no matter what. Naomi and Emily are unique in the world of Skins, because the hugeness of their love is just so profound. Every time they tried to break apart, they just came back together again, bound even tighter than before. Their love is unrivaled in the Skins universe; there is no other couple that can compare.

And that doesn't just apply to the Skins universe. There is no other lesbian couple in the history of television that has had a story and love as great as theirs -- they rank among one of the most epic love stories of all time in any world, ever. They have made people believe that there is someone out there for them, made them realize that being gay is not only normal and okay, but that gay couples are just like heterosexual couples. And gay couples and characters, just like in real life, can be happy. Emily and Naomi have given strength to countless people, encouraging them to be open and honest. To just be themselves. No other couple can make that sort of claim.

Emily and Naomi love each other, so we love them. They bring out the best in each other, and even if their romance hasn't always been lovely and sweet, they've always managed to endure the rough spots and come out as a stronger couple than before. Naomi gives Emily confidence and Emily lets Naomi be herself. They support each other, they are each others' shadows; it's easy to see why they're so in love. They're beautiful together, and that's why we love them.

why we love lily & kathryn :
LilyKat -- they're the actresses who made Emily and Naomi as epic as they were. Kathryn Prescott (Emily) and Lily Loveless (Naomi) originally met at drama school together and then three years later found themselves in Skins, playing best friends and lovers. Kathryn and Lily are best mates; they spent most of their time on set together and frequently attend events together. They're as awesome as their fictional counterparts. Kathryn has said that Lily knows her the best and Lily has said that Kathryn is the one she gets along with best. Naomi and Emily could not have been nearly as great without Lily and Kathryn.

Kathryn and Lily are of course the biggest shippers of Naomi and Emily. When Naomi cheated in Series Four, Kathryn and Lily actually had arguments about it. They genuinely care about their characters and their fans, and it really shows. They've both said that they love their characters and are glad that Naomi and Emily's story was so groundbreaking; they are happy that the story they told made people feel comfortable about themselves and love and sexuality. Neither of them can see anyone else playing their characters, and neither can we.
