Can I just say...
How can people not ship Phoenix and Maya? I mean, srsly, they are just perf.
I mean, what is seven years age gap anyway for adults like them? They totally compliment each other. Phoenix would do anything for her, even called her “the person closest to me”
He was prepared to dirty up his own conscience by declaring a guilty man innocent just so he could save her friggin life.
When she was kidnapped and locked up in that dark place, she DREW A PICTURE OF PHOENIX WITH “NICK” WRITTEN ON IT, explaining either a) she trusts him so friggin much that she believes he could save everyone in the end or b) she thought she’d never get the chance to see him again so she draw that picture to remind her of his face or c) ALL OF THE ABOVE.
She was prepared to have 600,000 volts run inside her body just so Phoenix could escape von Karma’s taser with all the evidence (which didn’t work, but the thought was still appreciated)
Also, he ran across a burning bridge for her.
HE RAN ACROSS A BURNING BRIDGE FOR HER.
HE FREAKING RAN ACROSS A BURNING BRIDGE FOR HER GODDAMNIT IF THAT’S NOT LOVE, THEN I DUNNO WHAT IS.
