first. he touches you and you light on fire. your wrist blazes where his fingers meet your skin. the burns don’t show, but it’s hard to breathe with ash in your lungs. it’s so hard to breathe. you’re suffocating daily. second. it hurts to watch him. he shines. he’s brighter than the sun, he’s too beautiful for your eyes. it’s hard to look at him. it’s even harder to look away from him. you’re going blind. third. your ears are tuned to his voice. you could pick him out in a sea of thousands. his voice makes pretty singers who sing pretty songs sound dull. his voice makes everything else sound ugly. fourth. the color of his eyes is blue enough to drown in. he is turning you into a clichéd love-wrecked being. you’re drowning, always sinking. down, down, down. fifth. you know him. you love him. through a thousand lifetimes, across millions of stars, you’d find him, you’d never leave him. you love him, till death do you part.
Unpopular opinion: While I do think that Jeffrey Mace makes questionable decisions and does lie about things, I do think that he does actually want what’s best for the world (humans and Inhumans alike) and what’s best for SHIELD. I do think that he cares genuinely.
(Why he wouldn’t be more suspicious of Nadeer has me eyerolling, but I can’t have it all.)
I love how Gotham didn’t make a big deal out of Oswald’s gay feelings. There was no struggling with it or “omg but he’s a man what do I do”. It was just “wow, I’ve fallen in love with Ed.” And I feel like, if they do eventually get together, everyone in Gotham won’t be like “wtf gay villains”. I feel like the normality will continue - “so they’re together now? okay.” It’s so nice because being gay isn’t being portrayed as an Identity Crisis or some big horrible thing that they have to work out. It just is. It’s refreshing to have a show creating non-hetero characters that aren’t all about their sexuality or struggling with it. Loving someone happens regardless of gender and I feel the Gotham universe accepts that as part of life. Honestly bravo, bravo to the writers and producers for doing it in this way.
