Can you please explain why bellamy is so beautiful????????
It feels like all the stars aligned with Bellamy. Everything about him is so breathtaking. He’s the paragon of the tragic hero, forever stumbling after his tragic dream. He is everything he thinks he isn’t, his self-perception is the opposite of his true character, his true qualities, his true values. He’s so incredibly selfless yet he feels selfish. He’s loved, so loved, but he isn’t aware, and doesn’t agree. He loves too much yet he thinks he can’t possibly love enough. He carries himself with so much courage and bravery but all he sees is his fear: of mortality, of time, of the uncontrollable. He’s saved so many yet he can’t help but feel this indelible sense of failure.
And Bellamy is a genuine soul, a sincere lover at heart. All he knows is loyalty and affection and this need to protect and it all stems from his upbringing. What he defines as love is more like a conflation of fear of failure, overbearing responsibility and a love so strong it can burn him out. You see it in everything he does; every step he takes, every word he utters is for the sake of one of these three things. He lets his fear dominate at times, and other times it’s his duty of care/love reaching through. You can’t even pin him down to ‘modest’ because he truthfully is not aware of his own beauty to even conceal it.
Bellamy is, to put it simply, a masterpiece. Crafted to near perfection, he’s a fusion of tragedy and fortune, of all things beautiful and all things sorrowful. Bellamy is an untapped spirit, so incredibly unactualized. His main arc is actually his road to self-actualization: Bellamy has been written for gradual ascent to his final revelation where who he wishes he could be can absolutely be congruent with who he truly is. The moment this happens is the moment he will see what everybody else has been seeing this whole time – just how beautiful he is.
