Do you think Guan Shan feels attracted to He Tian? I think he hasn't realized how hot he is.
considering how guan shan was staring at he tian so intently that even he tian himself could feel guan shan’s eyes on him while he was surrounded by girls fawning over him, i’d say guan shan knows exactly how hot he tian is and appreciates that a lot ( ͡° ͜ʖ ͡°)
no, but seriously, you have to keep in mind that under all the drama and action and mafia subplot, 19 days is also a coming of age story, and that even if they don’t look like it, the characters as we’re seeing them right now are only 15 years old: there are some kids this age who are already fully aware and secure in their identity, but most of the time they are not, and adolescence is exactly the period in life where identity starts to be built, where people start to learn more about themselves and to explore the world and interact with others in a more conscious way
we’ve seen this in 19 days mostly with jian yi, in the way he is struggling to accept and come to terms with his attraction and feelings for zheng xi, while on the other side we have he tian, who seems to be perfectly aware and at ease with who he is and what he wants, and then we have guan shan and zheng xi, who are still at the very first stages when it comes to discover themselves and what we know they’ll come to feel towards he tian and jian yi respectively, however!! we have started to see the beginning of it
when it comes to guan shan, his attraction to he tian - both physical and emotional (and im using these terms because it’s not quite yet a sexual and romantic attraction, but it will turn into that with time) - is pretty obvious, even if it is shown in a subtler way: as i said at the beginning, it’s in the way he stared at he tian so intently that he tian ended up noticing, but also in the way he kept he tian’s note on his bed like he spent all night rereading it, in the way he used his shirt to cover the cut on he tian’s hand and stop the bleeding, in the way he blushed bright read when jian yi brought up kissing, in the way he lay down on his bed still wearing he tian’s jacket, in the way he either read he tian’s horoscope or his own but obviously thought about he tian when reading about his ‘partner’, in the way it looked like he was inching his hand under his pants as if to jerk off while thinking about he tian (….okay, so maybe the attraction is already sexual), in the way he clearly considered compromising to have he tian on top of him……….
i don’t think we will ever get to see guan shan doing very obvious stuff like ogling at he tian’s body, or at least not until he becomes more self-aware (tho im pretty sure he already realized how hot he tian is), but we do have a lot of subtle and at the same time evident moments where we see guan shan showing some kind of attraction towards he tian, even if guan shan himself is not fully conscious of it yet, and we’re only going to see it develop more and more in the future!!
I feel like He Tian would dress like a total pimp later while Guanshan stays with his bomber jackets or warm winter jackets (bought by He Tian and the devil personified refuses to take anything for it in return *cough* Maybe Momo’s soul, but that’s a different story *laughs*)
When Nino and Alya entered Marinette’s room to work on their group project, they did not expect to see Marinette Dupain-Cheng making out with the Chat Noir. The couple’s school items tumbled from their arms at the sight.
Zhan Zheng Xi closed his eyes, resting his forehead against his best friend’s. His hand grasping the nape of his neck, his soft blond hair tickling his knuckles, their breath mingling in the small space between them.
They were so close, his own head being cradled by two hands running through his short hair.
He almost lost him, he was sure of it, he did not know where he went or why, but he couldn’t shake the fear that he almost lost his best friend.
He closed his eyes tighter, if he hadn’t returned…no, he was not going to go there, his friend is here and safe. This close it was undeniable that Jian Yi is real, his soft breath and warm hands make him feel like he is surrounded by his presence.
He felt himself tilting his head up, slowly moving closer almost involuntarily, pulling Jian Yi in by the neck until their lips just brushed.
As soon as Zheng Xi realized what he was doing he quickly broke the contact, his face and neck burning red.
“W-What was that!?” Jian Yi’s eyes were opened wide and he had a blush spreading across his cheeks and neck to match.
“It was nothing! Forget about it!” he pulled away out of his grip, letting his hand fall from Jian Yi’s neck and averted his gaze.
They just stood there for a minute, Jian Yi staring at his best friend who he has the biggest crush on and Zheng Xi staring holes into the pavement in front of him while clenching his fists painfully tight.
“Can we do that again?” it was said hesitantly, barely above a whisper.
Zhan Zheng Xi was not sure if he even heard him right, if he even wanted to have.
“I-I don’t know” he muttered, annoyed with himself.
He wasn’t entirely sure what he wanted to do, or why he did that in the first place. All he knew was that at the time, somehow, it felt like the right thing to do. He felt so overwhelmed with relief at seeing him, touching him, hearing his voice again, it felt as though his body reacted on its own.
He suddenly felt an arm being thrown over his shoulder, “Ok, how about we go get some ramen, I’m starving. You’re going to treat me right, because you missed me so much!” Jian Yi instantly reverted back to his cheerful self and he felt himself being pulled along with the raging tides that make up his best friend.
“What? Who said I’m paying!?”
“Come on, I don’t have my wallet. And didn’t I mention you missed me so much that you want to treat me to some food” he pouted, tilting his head up to look right into Zheng Xi’s eyes.
He blushed slightly at those irresistible puppy eyes, whatever he was feeling though, he was not yet ready to give it a name.
“Fine” he resigned with a huff. For now, he figured he could buy some cheap ramen and savor the feeling of being beside his cherished friend once again. Though he had to ignore the unsettling feeling burning at the bottom of his chest that made him fear letting Jian Yi out of his sight, that if he did, he may not return again.
