Someone come co-admin a Shameless rpg with me.
I feel like a lot of people don’t understand Svetlana’s character and just think she’s a bitch because she’s always trying to come between Mickey and Ian.
First of all, she didn’t want to fuck Mickey just like he didn’t. She probably didn’t want to marry him either, but it is better for her that they are married since she’s illegal.
I don’t think she ever loved or even liked Mickey. They don’t fucking know each other. She’s stuck around because it’s better for her son. Her son has a nice(-ish) place to sleep, food, whatever he needs.
And as the man, as the father of her baby, Mickey is supposed to provide for them. But Ian gets in the way of that. Lana doesn’t give a shit about being married and having a perfect happy family, she has always known that that wasn’t going to happen.
Literally all she’s bee fighting for this entire season is for Mickey to step up and be a dad.
Sure, she’s been pretty manipulative and aggressive about it, but Yev is probably the only thing in live she really loves and she’s proud of, and she wants to give him the best live she possibly can, which includes a father.
