Yet he realized that the captain’s normal reservations concerning his personal life did not extend to him, just as he understood that the reverse was also true.
Kirk glanced up from where he’d been studying his boots, and felt the familiar telepathic door swing open between himself and the Vulcan.

tbh one of my favorite concepts in ace attorney worldbuilding is the idea of apollo meeting franziska and he expects her to be her usual insulting, whip-wielding self that he’s heard horror stories about
only for her to do a 180 on him and treat him decently, whether it’s because she’s aware of all the shit he’s been through or if she’s doing it as a roundabout way to screw with pheonix’s head or some combination of the two
and at first apollo wonders if the stories were exaggerated, only to see her pull her usual acts with other people, leaving him very confused
And at the same time He denies that Lucifer was His favourite son, because as a parent He loves all of his children equally. Why do then everybody, including Michael and Gabriel considered so? Why did it seem that Lucifer received more of their Father’s attention that the rest of them did?
Because He has always known what was coming for His brightest son.
God knew that Amara would twist and corrupt Lucifer, but the Lightbringer was the only one who could be trusted with her, the only one stubborn, strong and bright enought to bear the Mark back then, at the beginning of times.
So He tried to give Lucifer as much love, affection and care as possible, knowing that He won’t be able to do that for a very, very long time, and all this God-Darkness-Archangels family drama kills me and is actually much deeper than depicted in the show.
