carl gallagher is literally a gift to shameless

  • idolizes fiona
  • made debbie a shiv for guys who are mean to her
  • protects his family
  • accepts ian’s sexuality even though he’s been told nothing about it
  • respects his girlfriend
  • bails fiona out of prison 
  • lets like nine kids live with him because he doesn’t want them to be cold
  • probably the most emotionally intelligent character on the whole show
  • and the most selfless
  • and he’s only 12
  • god bless carl gallagher
