Today is the Positivity Day, so I’ve decided to dedicate a post to one of the most positive Kuroshitsuji characters - Elizabeth Midford.
Many SebaCiel shippers dislike her, so today I’ll try to explain why I myself, as a SebaCiel shipper, love and respect Lizzy so much.
Lizzy is the only thing that keeps Ciel’s faint connection to “light”.
Sure, Sebastian understands Ciel better than anyone else. Two years of being together made them become one. Sebastian undoubtedly saved Ciel from complete loneliness (not to mention that without Sebastian Ciel would’ve probably been dead by now). He protects the young master, makes him cookies and they are constantly mocking each other like old buddies.
But do you really think this is enough for a 13-year old boy? He is still just a kid. He needs to communicate with his peers, but instead he is only going out to investigate mass murders.
And above all, Sebastian is the darkness.
Lizzy is the light.
She is always trying to cheer Ciel up and bring some happiness and fun into his life.
And Ciel, though he doesn’t realize that himself, is reaching for this light. He doesn’t show that
because he is a tsundere but he really feels good when spending time with Lizzy. She is the only reminder of his happy childhood.
Many people find her obsession with cute things annoying. But she became like this for him.
Even if Ciel doesn’t have any romantic feelings for her, he deeply cares about her as his dear cousin and friend.
Don’t forget, that she is still just a girl. It’s amazing how desperate and serious is her love for Ciel.
She is strong.
She went through a great loss when she was just a child.
Being the wife of the queen’s watchdog is not easy. But she bears this fate with dignity.
And lately, I feel like she is in danger.
Seeing one of the most cheerful characters with this sad blank look in the eyes really breaks my heart. So let’s all cross our fingers for Lizzy.
