Why spend hours rewatching shameless when this is why you’re looking for?

Do you ever think about how worried Mickey must have been in 4x01 to ask about Ian with his father sitting right next to him? After everything that went down, Mickey openly showing concern for Ian in front of Terry—even if only for a moment and even if he tries to brush it off—feels so incredibly brave and meaningful. It’s amazing how subtly Mickey’s feelings for Ian come to the forefront in moments like these, and I feel like sometimes they’re easy to miss, but if you’re paying attention, they’re really fucking beautiful.
