came to my mind after listening to Kuroshitsuji Web Radio and I would really
like to share them with others. I really hope that my English isn’t bad and
this post would be understandable (English isn’t my native language and I’m
still learning it xD). Also I’m a Grelliam shipper, so forgive me please if
someone ships the other pairing and sees no affection between William and Grell. In my opinion, every
pairing with our red-haired princess is awesome!
I believe, there
is no need to speak about Grell’s feelings towards him, ‘cause Toboso-san
confirmed, that William is the main Grell’s passion, while Sebastian is just an
idol. So, let’s speak about William, he’s pretty interesting and unclear
character, ‘cause he is the person who doesn’t show his emotions at all.
Anyway, Grell is the
only one who wakes the emotions up inside Will. We just need to remember that
smile from the OVA, when Grell called him by his name for the first time. And
this name was «Will», not «William», what also makes sense. It is clear that
Will dislikes shortened names (because of that he calls everyone by the full name
and surname), but Grell is the only one who can call him
and William doesn’t mind at all. I believe, he even likes it somehow.
Grell is allowed
to enter Will’s personal space. In the 5th episode of Book of Circus William
Ciel and Sebastian to go closer to him and blamed Ciel for entering his
territory for a 3 centimeter long. At the same time Grell can hug William in
front of other people and he says nothing about it. It can be because of his
calmness, but I believe, that here is another reason. For example, Sebastian
calls Grell’s flirt «revolting», but it’s just a flirt. But for William Grell
shows real love and intention of physical connection and William doesn’t even
say a single rude word about it. Grell’s attention isn’t «revolting» for him, it’s just
very annoying, ‘cause Grell is a very loud and energetic reaper, who causes lots of problems and can even tire others.
I don’t believe
that William is a very rude and sadistic person in fact. We should remember
that he is a boss and Grell is just his subordinate (very incompetent, lazy and
emotional subordinate). Actually it would be a shame, if everyone knows that the
face of the management division is in relationship with such awful subordinate,
who is physically a man, what will cause even bigger shock among other reapers.
That’s the reason why Will has to behave that way just to save his reputation. Also
let’s notice that he kicks Sutcliff only for the time when Grell starts
speaking about feelings towards him. Will just has to kick, because it’s the only way to
make Sutcliff silent and not allow everybody to realize about their relationship.
helps Grell with work, which is not his actually. He works overtime, but when
Grell is in a trouble or needs help with collecting the souls, then William
will help with it. I believe, it shows Will as a very close friend or even as a
beloved one to Grell, because rude and sadistic boss won’t help you with your
job, but Will helps and does it every time.
The way how
Ronald jokes about Will’s relationship with his subordinate. In 10th episode of Book of Circus Ronald points out, that Will is angry because of
meeting him, while Grell went to the Phantomhive’s mansion. Also in Kuroshitsuji Web Radio he says «Spears-senpai and
Grell-senpai have a good relationship». Then he mentions that he can have a talk with
William only about weather and Grell-senpai, but about weather Will is not
talkative and he also can’t follow the discussion about girls. And Ronald notices that
Will doesn’t care about the web program, but came to it with Grell to support his subordinate.
Actually, Ronald just behave as their shipper. xDDD
after Grell’s words. It’s just cute how he hits Sutcliff’s head in 18th episode. It’s
like the behavior of husband, who just doesn’t want his beloved to be an
unintelligent reaper who knows nothing about Undertaker’s personality.
William started taking care after his glasses and speaking about it only after Grell’s request. Is he following the words of his beloved for 100 years? It’s pretty loyal.
towards Sebastian. Could it be jealousy? Well, actually I’m not sure about that,
but William hates Sebastian the most and sometimes I think that this is because
of Grell’s attention to that demon. So, if there would be no Sebastian, Grell
stops follow him and… starts working well. Yes, William is dreaming about that
with the bottom of his heart.
And that look of
William. His gaze becomes warmer and softer when he is looking at Grell and I
think this says the most about his feelings towards his subordinate.
To say it
simple, Grell just makes William emotional and alive, what is impermissible for reapers. They are forbidden to have feelings, because it can cause
problems to their responsible work. So, I just believe that William is in love
with Grell too, but has no possibility to admit it. If Will admits his
feelings, he becomes weak in front of others reapers, so he must be unemotional
to do his job professionally as a leader.
Well, I suppose
that’s all the points that came to my mind today. This post turned out to be even bigger
than I had thought, but I really hope that you enjoyed it while reading!
Have a nice day
and thanks for reading and your attention!
okay but like kihyun on this show is fucking life 🙌🙌 like he slayed it. his gestures, facial expressions and (obviously) voice was freaking perfect. his lisp somehow made it sexier like idk if that’s just me but that just made me even more attracted to him???? i also love how they were kind of underestimating him because of his age and then he shut them up with his vocals like slay
