Marco’s unconditional love for Star and why it is still amazing
TomStar is really cute and I really fell for it at first, I was confused wondering if I still love Starco anymore. Then I re-watched the two previous seasons.
The amount of care Marco has given to Star is really something, from worried about her during the Blood Moon Ball to the point where he goes down to get her himself, to giving his 100% trust to her at everything such as Baby’s test and riding a bike.
Then, printing a bunch of flyers looking everywhere tirelessly for Star to the police station when she went missing. Understanding the way Star works at playing a game(changing the rules) and allowing her to do so, proceed to get Tom to understand it as well. There’s also the time he wanted to show Star the Old Youthful because he wanted her to see something amazing. During the two seasons, Marco has been noticeably teaching Star how to become a better person.
In the Season 3, Marco realized his feelings for Star. His love and care grew even stronger. When Star tried to contain her sleep-portal ability, Marco guards her as she sleep without any complain, not because he is a squire but is 100% willing to do it. As much as he wanted adventures with Heckapoo, he wishes to protect Star more than anything. When Star went off missing during sleep-portaling, he panics and used the wand even though he knows the risk.
Marco didn’t give up caring for Star even after acknowledging the fact that she’s with Tom now. THAT is true love.
Starco isn’t dead, it’s been there the whole three seasons. You just need to see it.
