I feel personally victimized by this decision.
You know why I love AUs? Because the whole point of them is that everything is changed, and yet these two people are still going to meet and fall in love- that they’re so set in stone and so meant to be that you can change literally everything in a hundred universes and they’ll fall in love over and over again.
The way Simon reacts to Kieren’s kisses is the most important. Like he’s so surprised every time and that is simultaneously so endearing and so so tragic.
Like he’s surprised that someone, especially someone as good as Kieren, would want him. That someone would want to touch him without hurting him. Cause all he knew for so so long was pain. Pain that encompassed needles and torture and rejection.
And he’s been searching for a home and for acceptance for so long that having someone as gentle and kind as Kieren want to show him love and comfort is completely shocking.
It’s something that he’s craved so deeply that he’s willing to turn his back on everything to protect this incredible boy.
