I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WAS EXPECTING.
WHAT IS THIS
this is probably the dumbest thing i’ve contributed to this fandom and that’s saying something
I may be super over-analyzing this, but just looking at this moment over and over again since it’s in gif form made me realize…
They’re reaching for each other at the same time. Both terrified out of their wits, they seek comfort in each other, and they’re trying to protect one another. And I always imagined that’s what their relationship would always be like. They spend the whole movie taking turns saving each other. Ariel’s always there for Eric, and Eric is always there for her.
That’s why I think this is an ideal romance.
^ this is why you’re one of my favorite blogs, you say exactly what I think but can’t put into words and you can!
