loved well

all this new short haired ladybug art has got me like *heart eyes*

So I finally figured out why I love HR so much. 

He’s Watson

Think about it: a man who is too often labeled as nothing but a moron (Harry’s comments/Nigel Bruce portrayals), but who has a certain amount of genius within his specific field of interest (medical knowledge/creativity). He acts as a stand-in for the reader/viewer, acknowledging how impressive the other protagonist(s) accomplishments are and often times ‘dumbing it down’ for the rest of us. His overall ‘usefulness’ to those around him is primarily in the form of companionship + the ability to act as a sounding board. Watson is there to help Holmes “shed light” on tricky situations by asking the right questions; HR is the team’s “muse” and continually provides creative insights into their problems. 

One of the potential issues then is that recent adaptations of Watson (Sherlock, Elementary) allow him to be these things and become a more overtly ‘useful’ partner to Holmes. John provides physical backup, Joan is a full-fledged detective, etc. HR hasn’t been given that opportunity yet. He’s still the Watson of the 19th century: absolutely necessarily, but still supposedly ‘lesser’ when compared to Holmes - or in this case Team Flash. 

Acknowledge HR’s awesomeness already. We need more Watson’s in the world.

Grantaire for his unique voice and approachable nature. Also the oldest judge on the show (and the one with most wins).

Just.

Good nature bickering and/or flirting during and between takes.

Summary:
It’s a difficult thing to go from secretly crushing on your school rival at a distance to sharing a tentative psychic connection with him, an audience of three other people, and an assorted collection of sentient machines.

Harder still to watch that crush come to be something more.
