I wonder if Arakawa knows how loved Riza Hawkeye is. Like, does she know how many significant others she has? Or how many times she’s been given a happy ending? Does she know that we love pictures of her snuggling with her dog or smiling or just being happy?
Does she know what she has done by giving us this incredible character?
Don’t be selfish. If you don’t love them, let them go. If you don’t love the way their eyes crinkle when they smile or the sound of their laugh. Let them go. If you do not think of them as a fucking masterpiece let them go, because someone else will! If you do not think that they are a fucking blessing upon this world please let them go. If your heart doesn’t almost beat of of your damn chest whenever you’re near that person, let them go. Because holy fuck, I bet someone else would kill to be in your position. Being with someone when you don’t fully appreciate is cruel. Not only that but you’re also holding them back from being with someone who could give them everything they could ever want. Someone that feels their knees getting weakened by just the sight of this person. Someone that has had the worst days but the mere thought of them just turns everything around. Someone who just by hearing their name, it brings the biggest smile to their face and a slight pain in their heart. Someone who hears the sound of their voice and it can soothe the darkest of their nightmares. If that person is not you…let them go. They are beauty, they are magic. They deserve someone who believes in them, cares for them and overall loves them.
