And yet he never stopped. Never wavered. Never gave in. He has dedicated his life to giving back to the one man who never gave up on him. Dedicated his life to showing Shiro what it is he sees in him, even if Shiro cannot see it in himself. Dedicated his life to buying Shiro as much time as he could to follow his dreams, just like Shiro helped him. It brings my heart so much joy to see something so validating and so beautiful.
If that isn’t the purest form of love, I don’t know what is.
I feel like we don’t appreciate Charmaine calling Clarke Bellamy’s girlfriend enough. Like that deserves SO MUCH appreciation, she literally referred to Clarke as Bellamy’s girlfriend aka not friend aka not platonic soulmate aka not anything that can be explained away. Glances, touches, sacrifices, implied pining and actual moments when they’ve cared for each other aside, this is the best confirmation we’ve ever got of Bellarke being romantic or at least perceived as it.
