Derek’s worth it, he really is.
He was worth meeting. He was worth getting to know. He was worth falling in love with. He was worth all the hurting. He was worth the two years of misery. And he was worth doing all that all over again.
He’ll always be worth it. Every single time.
but he still let himself start falling for Simon, let himself kiss him and bring him over the meet the family and tell Simon straight up that he looked for Simon when he disappeared and that basically that hurt. He lets himself be vulnerable with Simon, and it’s just so brave. And of course part of it is that now he’s also letting himself build a support system and that’s a confidence booster too. Idek I just want to flail about Kieren’s character development a lot.
WE CAN TALK ABOUT THIS FOREVER AS FAR AS I’m CONCERNED.
I’m in love with the way Kieren is starting to fall in love with Simon. Gosh, I mean, he liked Simon from the second Simon opened his mouth and started reciting poetry at him in the graveyard, and then Simon had to go and be a disciple of the guy Kieren thinks is dangerous bad news, and watching Kieren work through that to find the real Simon beneath the believer… good boy, Kieren. Keep it up, you can do it! You can find him, help him save himself!
I’m just a person who didn’t wanna do any more harm.
