You a pilot?
No, not yet. But I wanna be one, more than anything.
#that fucking chin-lift on ‘what’s your simulator score’ #HEY GURL MY NAME’S RALEIGH WANNA HEAR A SECRET? MISS MORI I AM IN TO YOU. #YOU WANNA BE A PILOT #MAAAAN THAT IS COOL #YOU REBUILT MY GIANT ROBOT HEART PROXY AND YOU ALSO WANNA BE A PILOT #I BET YOU’RE REALLY GOOD AT IT #OH WOW 51 KILLS YOU *ARE* REALLY GOOD AT IT #WHAT ARE YOU DOING LATER? #WANNA BE MY CO-PILOT? #OR GET A COFFEE? #OR SEE A MOVIE? #FOR AS LONG AS WE BOTH SHALL LIVE?
#help me#i know this is so cute but it’s just#i will never be over the sheer amount of respect that raleigh has for mako mori#this isn’t just plain infatuation or attraction#this is an admiration down to his bones that lights up his entire being#finally giving him a purpose after long wandering years after losing his brother#the first person since yancy that he’s truly wanted to make proud#and was willing to do anything to make that happen#it’s not as simple as attraction or even love#it’s that from the moment he meets her on#she and her happiness and success and wellbeing#are as important to him as oxygen#raleigh would gladly face down a million kaiju on his own for mako#not because he wants to possess or own her like so many men#but simply to allow her to continue living#to reach her goals#and i always think about#how the one thing he wasn’t expecting#was just how devoted she’d become to him in return#even if he hadn’t asked for that- even if that hadn’t been his intention(via queensamwise)

“Watching them smile at each other, Taria felt their kinship and the complicated love. They were such an odd pairing on the face of it: Obi-Wan so self-contained, Anakin so reckless, but they’d found their balance, and now they were two halves of a whole.”
