why do they have to keep opening old wounds


weekly reminder that marco was probably the most important person in jeans life- a person who encouraged and believed in him- and he is dead.
sometimes I wonder how often jean thinks about marco, and then it occurred to me
it’s been like 11 episodes since Marcos death, and he is still jean’s sole motivation for moving forward.
jean frequently questions his own abilities, to the point where it’s obvious that he does have a severe lack of self esteem and purpose.
but marco answered jean’s questions as they came, reassuring him - “you gave the right orders. That’s why I could jump, and it’s why I’m alive.” honestly, there’s no greater solace than what marco gave jean.
and now, even after death, marco is still answering jean’s questions.
Or rather, he is the answer.
