Friendly reminder that Francis can defend himself from Arthur and does argue passionately with him over lots of petty things. Like don’t think Francis will keep to himself or will feel afraid to call Arthur out or call him a bitch as a response to one of Arthur’s insults. Francis is sassy and will destroy anyone who wants to mess with him and even though he loves Arthur, if Arthur starts with his bullshit, Francis won’t stand for it because there is no way this one is going to get away with calling him win-loving bastard, like Francis WILL think of something to counter him like blood-pudding imbecile. He is willing to fight. He won’t stand on the side and let Arthur insult him. Francis isn’t a pansy. And that isn’t to say that Arthur won’t hate Francis for answering back. They fuel each other with every word they say when in a heated argument or debate. And Arthur wouldn’t CRY when Francis insults him. These two make each other feel an intense fire in their souls and they feel alive like “you insult me, gues s what, I’m going to tell you something 1000x worse”. It’s a cycle for them. And I don’t think they fight every 2 seconds, but when they do argue, you best believe they’ll fight until one of them tires out or runs out of insults. I’m just trying to say Francis is strong and won’t let Arthur walk all over him. That’s not how they work. Its not all about Arthur just saying something mean to Francis. There needs to be a balance for them. And Francis fighting back is that balance. And that’s what Arthur likes, that’s what he LOVES about Francis because they push each other’s buttons and they don’t know WHY they do it, but they enjoy the feeling of teasing each other because they know that they don’t hurt each other 100%. Their comments are admittedly sarcastic and hurtful sometimes, but they don’t let each other win. Francis doesn’t stay quiet and Arthur won’t let him stay quiet. Just a psa.
