but let’s be real: Hugo most likely won’t have conventional relationships. He may have grown up in a conventional family, but he’s smart, clever, intelligent. He can look at things from different points of view, he thinks a lot about the implications of everything and he’s the ‘what if?’ man. Yes, he doesn’t see things as black and white, and that has his pro and cons, but it’s something he learned growing up in his family. Hugo could never be in a relationship that doesn’t stimulate all of that, thus why impossible ships are his thing.
