Poppy thinks galio is the true bearer of the hammer, galio tries to convince her its obvs her, they get into a screaming match of compliments

“Geez, what a pain,” Poppy said to herself, taking a seat on the steps of Demacia’s Great Library.

“Oh, Poppy, fancy seeing you here,” the statue next to her said, suddenly coming to life and also causing the yordle to jump. “Ah, did I scare you? My apologies. How are you doing, little one?”

Poppy sighed, looking at the hammer in her hands before looking to Galio. “Same old, Galio. Me, going out to look for the hero. Me thinking I found the hero. Give the hero the hammer, and every time,” Poppy said, then punctuated the end of the line by gesturing across her throat. “They croak! It’s getting to be real tiresome, y'know?”

“Patience, my dear. Some things take time,” he said. “Something tells me that when the time is right, you’ll find the hero you’re searching for.”

“Really? You think so?” Poppy responded.

“Of course,” Galio said. “In fact,” he added, a crooked smile forming over his features. “I think the hero might be in our very presence right now.”

“I don’t know, Galio. None of these people look very hero-worthy,” Poppy said, looking over the crowd. After a moment of studying the people passing by, her eyes lit up. “Unless…”

“Unless…?” Galio repeated, grinning.

“Unless the hero isn’t a person, but something else entirely!” Poppy hopped to her feet and thrust her hammer out towards her friend. “Galio! Take the Hammer of Orlon! Seize your destiny!”

“What?” Galio said, grin sliding off his face as confusion set in. He shook his head. “No, Poppy, I didn’t…” he put his hand over his head, then gestured to her. “I meant you, silly yordle. You are the very hero you are seeking.”

“Huh?” Poppy said, finding it was her turn to be confused. “No, I could never be the hero. I mean, look at me! Tell me what you see, Galio.”

Galio moved off his perch and stood in front of Poppy, leaning down until their eyes met each other. “I see a very determined, brave, and selfless young girl who would lay down her life for her people. That sounds like a hero to me.”

“No! I’m nothing special, man. I’m just a girl with a hammer, not a hero. But you, Galio,” Poppy said, the shine returning to her eyes. “You’re huge! And not just physically. You’ve got the biggest heart I know, and you guard this city with everything you’ve got. Sounds like a hero to me.”

“I’m no hero, Poppy,” Galio said, turning his eyes away. “You and I both know that. I’m merely trying to atone for my wrongdoings.”

“All the better! Everyone knows a good hero has a tragic backstory, Galio! And you’re one of the most tragic I know! Well, next to Vayne, anyway,” Poppy muttered, reminding herself to stop by the Vayne Manor while she was in town.

“Poppy, my past is irrelevant! If we look at what happens now, you are the perfect hero for that hammer!”

“Yeah, well, you could be more perfect! You’re really cool, Galio!”

“I am merely a servant of this fine city. You, however, are absolutely inspiring!”

“I’m no hero, Galio. We’ve been over this!”

“Yes, I believe we have,” Galio said, climbing back onto his perch. “And I ask you now to drop the matter until you see sense! If you don’t think it is you, then I ask you find another hero.”

“I will!” Poppy shouted, starting to walk away. “And by the way, you’re doing a great job!”

“And I hope you have a wonderful day in our wonderful city!”

Have you even been platonically in love with someone? Like, you wouldn’t necessarily date them or kiss them or anything like that, but you just love talking to them and their presence just relaxes you and makes you feel safe and your whole world gets a little bit brighter whenever they’re around? Because those are honestly my favorite kinds of relationships.
