>>109877012>CotBM sequence and this handholding scene
I honestly didn't think that the show could make me go 'dawwwww' ever again. But boy I was fucking wrong. It's such a tender and affectionate moment, it's so different from the usual whirlwind-like state Star is in.>though the overly fucking around with Tom and Kelly was, rightly, uncalled for and wore out its welcome quite early
Yes you are right. The reason why it was so painful to have these is because we knew that they were going to end, so we didn't want to get attached to them. But at the same time, they did have some heartwarming moments together, so it was really a mindfuck, it was difficult to set our sights on a single ship.
I guess it's kind of unfair for all the sideromance characters. Because they were cute, but we knew that their only purpose was to be a stepping stone. It could've been done in a way that was more bearable (like give a little more breathing space for every relationship) but they didn't. The show always had problems with the pacing... And that didn't stop there. Everyone felt like the ending shot could've used at least one more hug or kiss. Oh well. There's plenty of starco moments to fill up a wall.
