The only reason that I love their first kiss is because is GRABBY ya know. Their kisses most of the time are too short and without a tongue or anything too explicit and sexy. So their first is the only one where there is grab, possession, hunger. So the fact it was grabby saves the day for me.
Hulllloooooo Nonnie! Thanks for sharing your thoughts! I’m so glad you liked their first kiss so much. I have to admit I don’t disagree, despite what I said to @thisdamndesire, you’re right the grabbiness gave it something that kisses like this…
just don’t have. ITV is a pretty conservative channel, so I imagine there needs to be a real narrative reason for a passionate make out sesh.
And what reason can top the literal start of their affair? Seriously, it needed to be breathless, urgent - just goddamn EXPLOSIVE. And it was. Em is so right, it’s iconic, a landmark for them and it can be appreciated for that alone.
I love it because Robert was just so desperate for Aaron. He didn’t know why, but there was this intense gravitational pull to this scruffy little greasemonkey. And Aaron was kind of expecting it because Robert’s desire almost had a physical presence between them (lol, boner jokes are always funny)… But, bless his sweet soul, when Robert grabbed him - I think it was mostly just surprise. No, shock. That this gorgeous, rich businessman who had so snarkily turned him down for a beer, wanted him so badly, he would call him out to the side of the road under the pretence of fixing his car and try and fuck him in a lay by. I love those elements of it.
But honestly? I would prefer 100 more kisses like this…
where their lips don’t even touch. The reason being… they are so at ease, so comfortable with eachother and their kisses now show it. The history between them, the connection, all the many, many things they’ve shared over the years tell in the way they hold eachother. The grief, the pain, the joy and the intimacy. How well they know eachothers bodies. To me, that clumsy first kiss doesn’t even compare, why would you want to go back?
The urgency may have dissipated (a little)… but what was just a casual, spur of the moment hook up then (even if they were crazily attracted to eachother) has become so much more than that. They are soulmates, husbands, family. They literally fucking live and breathe for one another.
And besides, they still do great make out sessions now, with added belt pulling… lol
Thank you so much for giving me a reason to pore over gifs of them kissing Nonnie! And thanks to all the gifmakers for giving their time and talent to this very important cause.
VERY IMPORTANT INDEED:
(Cos how can you write a post about Robron kisses and not include the Xmas kiss?)
