I feel like Sebastian and Ciel’s relationship goes beyond the realms of consent. They need each other like the sky needs her stars. They are inarguably bound beyond any measure of law or moral. Ciel is no innocent boy, either. He is corrupt and unashamed. He embraces Sebastian even though he is the very means to his end. Sebastian marvels at this witty creature, and together they play off each other as dew on morning’s leaf. It’s just so beautiful. And ugly.
