they had an unspoken kind of love, full of accidental touches and truth and dare kisses. seven minutes in heaven was the only time they could really let their feelings show. they’d never admit that their trips to hogsmeade were really dates. they held hands in the hallways and slept in each others beds. they never could confess their love, but they never could let it go, because accidental love was better than nothing at all.
Screenshots from episodes 4 and 5. Things that are important here: the use of the words team and family.
Keith doesn’t want Pidge to leave the team, but he doesn’t specifically mention the team. He mentions people’s families, which is what Pidge was worried about. No doubt he was attempting to make her reconsider by using a word she was inherently interested in and was sensitive to. Others have mentioned before how ironic/nice is is of Keith to say that specifically, considering he’s an orphan and how the reason he wants Pidge to stay is because she, along with the others, are his family now.
It’s actually Shiro who uses the word team. He tells Keith that people can’t be forced into the team, they must want to stay. He’s not talking about family (specifically), but about the team of paladins they have formed.
Then cut to episode 5 and after they’ve dealt with Sendak, it’s Shiro who starts saying he can’t help but feel like Pidge was meant to be part of the team, but won’t stop her if she wants to leave. That’s when Pidge recalls her father’s words that his team was like family. Pidge is the first person to associate the two words, and Keith immediately says “welcome back to the team”, a clear call back to Shiro’s words back in episode 4 about how a team/family can’t be forced.
I’m honestly so married to the idea that ed will admit he loves oswald and loves him more than he’s ever loved anyone, but there’s no romantic (and maybe even no sexual) feelings/interest there at all. oswald is his friend, his best friend, and ed will never love anyone as much as he loves oswald. and although he loves oswald in a different way to how oswald loves him, that doesn’t make it any less. even just as best friends they’re soulmates and they belong together.
That’s an amazing question. I think maybe because they’re so intriguing together! I mean, I love the whole Sucy using Akko for her entertainment and at the same time loving and supporting her in everything. Sucy knows Akko so damn well, she can afford making jokes about her even when akko acts tragically. Like, Sucy is so misterious and probably she never had a friend before meeting akko on the road. Akko is not afraid of her being weird and different. She goes past her behavior, and she kinda forced Sucy to be friends, wich showed us a developing Sucy in the whole show. I like the chasing each other but still loving. The whole episode 8 didn’t help also, lol. And when Akko got bitten by those venomous snakes trying to save Diana, she showed how the poison Sucy gives her for tricks actually doesn’t affect her that much, besides, probably helped her getting stronger. That’s how I like them. Helping each other finding a way out from every mistake.
Also, we went from this
The theater in Sucy’s mind will never stop showing their first met, wich is also the actual first encounter Akko does starting her new adventure. They were both alone and both found their first best friend.
More things I love: Raimei’s character growth leading her to more deeply consider other people’s thoughts and motivations and using that to make her own decisions about the storyline. Especially when the decisions fly in the face of everything that Tobari wants and tells them to do, but also because her decisions align with her moral compass and match her trust in Miharu.
Which is GREAT, because that sort of defiant brand of independent thinking is what Miharu is doing now too, but they both got to this point through very different plot arcs. Miharu got there by learning not to trust the people who pretended to be on his side but constantly lied to him, and Raimei got there by learning that her limited scope of the world around let her lie to herself about what the truth was. And now they both know better, and are moving forward on their own paths into quite strange circumstances, but they both trust each other to do what is right.
250. When Harry was a baby Sirius, James and Lupin gave him several stuffed animals, a wolf, a dog and a stag. They tried to have contests to see who Harry loved most by which toy he would choose but every time they told him "Harry come and play with this one, show us who you love the most!" Harry would crawl over to Lily.
