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.

  • Simon: There's something incredibly special about him, Julian. He's everything the Prophet said the First Risen would be and so much more.
  • Simon: And I also want to bone him so hard
  • Simon: Have you seen him
  • Simon: You should see him
  • Simon: He's b e a u t i f u l
  • Simon: But, like
  • Simon: Guys
  • Simon: Guys I think I want to marry him
  • Simon: Guys
  • Simon: Seriously

#i just ADORE this moment so much because #when kieren gets all ~angry~ and wound up about simon not being a ~normal person~ #and he looks up with his big big eyes all defensive and ready to give simon a piece of his mind #simon just can’t help but look at him with SO MUCH awe and his expression is just so TENDER #and he’s mirroring kieren’s face - lips parting slightly and his eyes searching kieren’s #and he’s probably not even listening until about 5 seconds in #(psst you can actually pinpoint the exact moment in the third gif when he starts to actually listen) #because LBR he probably finds it absolutely adorable when kieren’s like this #and every single ‘you’re incredible kieren’ and 'you should see him… he’s beautiful’ is right there in his expression even before he says them and thinks he’s the First Risen #and it just further proves that simoN MONROE IS SO FAR GONE IT IS ACTUALLY RIDICULOUS #I AM 1000000% DONE WITH THESE TWO

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.
