is that a tsundereon I spot (ngl I would be happy if they just bickered off into eternity; Leon’s being sentimental is my favorite part of his character because he is /such/ a loser about it…but we know he does it anyway)
Leon is deep down very shy and insecure and scared of trusting people! He is very, very transparent about it once you actually know this. Gulcasa understands him very well and yet likes him, and Leon cannot help but be so embarrassed.
I live for the moments in this ship where Leon actually is willing to respond to Gulcasa and take care of him back, because Gulcasa needs a lot of tenderness and support. And there Leon goes being willing to provide it. Leon!! How is that not precious.
