Does anyone else find irony in how the boy who used to calm crying babies by saying “shh little puff” calls himself disturbed. Baz is a marshmallow who has fabricated the idea that because he’s different that he’s evil or broken. It’s tragic, and honestly absurd. However that’s probably why he’s drawn to Simon. Simon questioned his place being an orphan mage (which literally has never happened before) and being the chosen one and yet instead of feeling remarkable he feels hollow and confused. Baz is incredibly kind, intelligent, powerful, unique and free thinking, but instead of being proud he is confused and ashamed. Simon and Baz don’t match because Baz thinks he’s a monster and Simon is an accidental villain, they match because both boys are extraordinary and yet see themselves as inexplicable disasters.
