Your soulmate is not someone that comes into your life peacefully. It is who comes to make you question things, who changes your reality, somebody that marks a before and after in your life. It is not the human being everyone has idealized, but an ordinary person, who manages to revolutionize your world in a second.
ok but imagine when amy was telling simon about what happened with kieren and rick and out loud simon’s just like nodding solemnly like oh yes thats terrible but inside he’s like HE’S GAY HE’S GAY HE’S GAY THIS IS MY TIME TO SHINE
The way Simon reacts to Kieren’s kisses is the most important. Like he’s so surprised every time and that is simultaneously so endearing and so so tragic.
Like he’s surprised that someone, especially someone as good as Kieren, would want him. That someone would want to touch him without hurting him. Cause all he knew for so so long was pain. Pain that encompassed needles and torture and rejection.
And he’s been searching for a home and for acceptance for so long that having someone as gentle and kind as Kieren want to show him love and comfort is completely shocking.
It’s something that he’s craved so deeply that he’s willing to turn his back on everything to protect this incredible boy.
