Okay, guys, I’m gonna talk about IbuAtsu for a minute because I was looking at things about love languages yesterday, and I realized that talking about this ship in terms of love languages makes it really easy to explain why I love it so much.
Like, okay. For both of them, acts of service is an important one. For Atsushi, it’s probably his primary love language, and for Ibushi there’s no competition. It blows all the rest out of the water. So it’s sweet to think of the two of them helping each other out and doing things for each other. But then like… I think Ibushi is such a private person that any other love languages he favors, to a much lesser extent, must be quiet and indirect in the same way. Quality time, I think, and gift-giving. Meanwhile, Atsushi also appreciates quality time, but I think once he gets to a certain point in a relationship, he wants words of affirmation (though not too cheesy pls or he’ll blush) and some degree of physical touch as well. Gift-giving probably wouldn’t really move him.
