let me ask you something - so someone had said that star is only dating tom out of pity bc she doesnt want him to feel like how she did when marco didnt want her. but i mean, i disagree? i feel like they both actually care for one another. what are your thoughts? do you think star and tom share mutual true feelings toward each other? or is it one sided?
(Long boring answer ahead, just a warning lol). In my opinion, I don’t think Star is dating Tom out of pity, mainly because there hasn’t been anything insinuating otherwise. I mean, in that whole ball episode Star angrily wanted Tom to get that she’s not into him, and even told him to his face (even though she was jealous of all the attention he was giving other girls the entire episode, but I guess she wasn’t aware it was jealousy lol). So Tom clearly got the message and even said he’d back off. But then they got into a big fight and were forced to dance together, and while doing so the angry tension turned into a beautiful dance; it opened up feelings (feelings maybe Star was pretending she didn’t have). No pity, they weren’t even planning on dating again in the first place. And then the next episode Star is really worried about him changing himself and they of course get into a fight and she leaves and is done with him (or really she’s just covering up her rage for how worried she is about him) and she comes back for him and just holds him, and tells him she’s right here, even though he can’t hear. No pity there. And the next few episodes they’ve both been equally as into each other, shopping together, sharing marshmallows, playing volleyball, kissing etc. I really don’t see any pity, at all. It just wouldn’t make any sense since none of these episodes have even shown that, you know?
