Alright so Cursed Child gaybies...
I’ve seen CC 5 times, this Sunday (16th October) was by far the gayest I’ve ever seen Albus and Scorpius.
The first hug (4th year, on the train) was short and sweet but when they were climbing up onto the train roof, they were touching eachother so much. Like going for it. Basically hugging as they got up. Totally flirty.
The staircase ballet: Anthony actually CRIED. Like during the whole seperation section, he was crying real tears (honestly that mans talent). It was heart wrenching. It is pining on another level, honestly, I can’t get enough of the looks they give each other during this.
The library scene/hug number 2: Anthony is still crying at this point. Sam didn’t cry today (well if he did I couldn’t see cos I wasn’t super close) but he was very much more sad than angry. These boys are heartbroken about being apart, its so clear. And the hug. They held it for so long, probably double the time I’ve seen them hold before. Super satisfactory considering the conversation they’d just had.
The Myrtle/ bathroom scene: Sam almost nose booped Anthony as he was passing him the gillyweed (more on nose boops to comeeee…).
The Scorpius torture scenes: I think these get overlooked as scorbus scenes but watching Albus as Scorpius is being tortured is kinda all I need. Its like Delphi is crutio-ing him too. Such a testament to their acting. Today Sam was a little more subtle when begging her to stop- it was more pained and desperate than angry and that just worked so, so well. Albus is so desperate to save Scorpius and I think this is the point that people really start to believe it.
Act 4, scene 14: So Rose walks out onto the stage and Anthony falls backwards, flails his cloak everywhere- it hits his head, the banister, Sam- like brilliant and hilarious. Rose does her thing and runs off laughing. Then they go in for the final hug and its about the length I’m used to but as Sam delivers “you better ask Rose if its the right thing to do” he BOOPS ANTHONY ON THE NOSE. THE NOSE BOOP HAPPENED. I thought it was a lie too but OMG there it was- totally clear to see and so incredibly cute.
Scorbus is real guys and I think Sam and Anthony are finally starting to ship it too.
