i haven't seen dunkirk, so i'm basing everything off the trailers, what if the reason alex/harry is so eager to get home (aside from not being killed) is because the love of his life promised to marry him if he came home? how cute would it be! i bet he'd race to the local church to marry her straight after he landed back in england, not going home first or anything
OKAY BUT I LOVE THIS. While I was watching I kept thinking about what Alex’s backstory would be and I am so here for him being a grumbly grump during the war and trying to act all tough and we know he comes off like a butthole, but back home he has a girl waiting for him that he loves so much and with her he is the sweetest and softest boy. And maybe they were friends as kids, so they’ve known each other a long time and shortly before he left, it turned to more and he decides the moment he gets home, he’s making her his wife. xx.
