because he wanted to protect her as well as what he has with her

I can’t express my genuine respect for this sweetheart. The trials she goes through for one boy who dismisses her actions time and time again, yet that doesn’t deter her efforts to want to help Ciel. But then you have to realize Ciel is stubborn and keeps her best interest in mind and he pushes her away, not because of who SHE is, but because of who HE is. He understands perfectly well that his coming death will rip her apart and tries to detach from people close to him to ease that pain, even though it will barely matter. But many fans overlook how stubborn Ciel can be as well. It’s not that he CANT feel happy again, enjoy what little time he has left, he just refuses. He won’t waste what time he has left on being happy, even though he still can live a good life with what he has left of it while still fulfilling the contract. His current self is a reflection of how the world has treated him. The Ciel we see now isn’t necessarily who he really is deep inside. It’s just like Sebastian wearing a human mask to hide his true demonic nature. Ciel’s mask is cruel, heartless, shameless to hide his still childish nature that can easily be taken advantage of by a more knowledgable and experienced adult. Ciel knows he’s a still a child, he just tries to not see himself as one and let others see him as one or else he is vulnerable to be hurt. But we can clearly see how truly kind he can actually be with people through this series. Elizabeth is a weakness in him. He will not hesitate for her especially and I think he hates that he can’t say no because all he’s going to do is make her suffer in the end. But Elizabeth, through it all, can still see good in him and she’ll never give up on that. Even Sebastian sees good and childishness still in Ciel, something he will criticize the boy for. Elizabeth already lives in a sexist and oppressive society, but she oppresses herself an extra mile just for Ciel. I respect Elizabeth for her sacrifices at such a young age and her determination. She is far under appreciated than many believe.

I have been lying to you. Since the day that we met. Ok, no surprise there. Alright, let me start over. Ummm……I didn’t travel to the Cape when I was a kid. Well, we didn’t travel anywhere. No one ever left Corwich. Not until the war came. And my regiment went off to fight the British. […] I know historical events really really well. That’s because I lived them. And events from my childhood….they’re so sketchy because I haven’t been a child since the 1760s. Alright, it’s not making sense. It’s not making sense. It’s not making logical sense. But listen. You’ve been thinking it. Something is off. Every time that I have made a bad excuse or every time that I haven’t been there for you. Or made you question yourself. Now I didn’t want that for you, Kat.

You deserve the truth.

Peggy is Human

I see people say they dislike the fact that this season has a more romantic and personal feeling aspect to it. We all know and admire Peggy for the strong person that she is, but she is human and every human has a vulnerable side in their personality. Peggy is not different. She has an older brother, of course he knows her inside and out well enough to know her. He did grow up with her after all.
People that dislike the idea of her brother helping her see what she really wants and feels aren’t being realistic. People need support, some people don’t see what is best for them because they protect themselves for emotions, feelings or certain situations because of things that happened to them in the past.
Peggy is the same way as all of us. She is strong, has feelings and she finally opens up and be vulnerable sometimes as well. Why because she finally has people supporting her and she knows always being strong is not the way to go.
Every person has a past, has a journey that made and still make them to the person they are today. I love to see Peggy’s back story. We see why she became the person she is now and I find that promising.

Maya and Riley have the most Slytherpuff friendship I've ever seen. (Maya is always aware of who has the power in the situation -- see her reaction to Mark Cuban, for example. And Riley is enormously loyal to her friends. Like, that's what keeps her going.) I sort people based primarily on what they value most and not personality traits. Which is why, even though I think Lucas is clever and loyal, I'd put him in Gryffindor. He wrestled a bull because he wanted to be brave!

This is an interesting way to look at it. While I agree that Maya/Riley do embody the Slytherpuff relationship really well, I’m not so sure that I agree with Lucas being a Gryffindor because I do think that his bravery is more connected to his desire to protect his friends than anything else (shoving Billy against the wall when he started badmouthing Farkle in 1x13, defending Zay from the bully in 2x03, wanting to go beat up Riley’s bully in 2x17). I’m not saying riding the bull didn’t take courage; I just think that at the end of the day, his friends are what matter most to him. As Zay says, “Lucas does anything for anybody.”
