“…I’m someone who’s mostly dead inside but still has a little hope for something extraordinary, which, as I said, is the worst breed of human, because it means I know everything is bullshit, but that I secretly hope for the day when it might not be.”
You know, two characters disliking each other doesn’t mean underlying sexual tension. Sometimes people can’t stand each other, and there’s damn good reasons for it. Constantly reducing a character’s valid reasons for hating someone to “sexual chemistry” or hidden feelings to justify your ship is side-eye worthy, and questionable at best. Cut that shit out.
