The first and last time Fakir and Ahiru dance with each other.
#OKAY BUT JUST LOOK AT THE WAY FAKIR EYES HER IN THE 5TH GIF #AND COMPARE IT TO HOW HE’S GAZING AT HER IN THE LAST #DO YOU SEE THAT #DO YOU SEE HOW MUCH CHANGES #AND HOW DRASTIC IT IS #I JUST #THE WAY HE LOOKS AT HER IN THE LAST ONE I WILL NEVER BE OVER IT JESUS CHRIST #HE GOES FROM THINKING SHE’S A MEDDLING NUISANCE #TO LOOKING AT HER LIKE SHE’S THE ONLY THING ON THE PLANET WORTH LOVING
ugh, yeah, you just made me cry some more
and there’s so much to appreciate here in terms of the stark contrast between the two scenes! like, on a stage in front of others under bright lights vs. it being dark and intimate and just the two of them. the distance between them in the first one and how he’s doing nothing to quell her nervousness (and is in fact the source of some of it), vs. how he pulls her close in the second gif and is trying to comfort her. the rough handling in the third gif vs. how he gently and completely supportively lifts and spins her in the fourth, how much she’s come to trust him since then. in the fifth, they’re both openly disliking each other and kind of facing away, while in the sixth they’re HOLDING HANDS *sob* and face to face. and in the last two, the rude, terrible way he drops her and leaves her vs. how he’s holding her close and smiling at her in that completely sweet and wonderful way and she’s so content to be there in his arms and feels stronger for him being there.
it’s just… yeah. too many feelings.
