And why I'll be mostly using pics for this. Aside from the obvious, of course.
because I can, because I have no life, because I need to get one etc
I'm just gonna assume most of the people who read this
which could very well be no one
have played X5. The game where practically this pairing became effin' official. That's right, folks. Official. Like, screaming "TOO OBVIOUS" right in your face, all over the place. With a cherry on top.
On that note, don't even bother to read the rest if you don't like Zero/X, yaoi, excessive fangirling,
... You know the drill. Thank you <3
I strongly advice you against hitting the jump if you haven't played the thing. Otherwise, YOU'RE GOOD TO GO. ♥
Soooo when playing Mega Man X5, you get to this part of the game. Zero lies pretty much dead on the ground, so what does X do?
You can pretty much feel where this is going.
It wasn't until THIS particular cutscene that I realized X was holding Zero a little bit waaay too close to his face, and, like, I swear. I am literally bursting with LOVE here as I watch the
still bunch of images
cinematics go. I squee, I hold on to my seat or whatever grinning like an idiot, expecting a kiss coming until-
SIGMA YOU HOMOPHOBE
Then I was like...
And then, when you finally beat X5 and manage to get the happy ending, which also oh so HAPPENS to be considered the canonical ending in the series out of all the
other ones you could get...
X's little phrase here practically does it. The pairing is official. THEIR LOVE IS FRIGGIN' OFFICIAL.
OH HAI ZERO THERE IN THE BACK
But THEN I remember...
Zero is not really there. X doesn't have his blonde with him. He is alone.
THIS ISN'T... THIS ISN'T HOW IT WAS SUPPOSED TO BE!!
Subsequently you get the rage fist.
So when I finally do get my shit together, I get all...
And what would you know. They DID.
And so the ghei
boys are reunited at last!
... But more could have been done with that. That I'm not gonna deny.
When you finally find yourself
aboard the ship
attached to the duo as in a romantic level, you have the general non-yaoi fanbase throwing the typical "it's just a friendship" "they are just best friends" "they are not gay!! IT'S BROTHERLY LOVE" kind of commentary at you, right?
But then I say...
And, as a matter of fact, we all know what this really is. Pfff
And before I depart here, let me tell you, that, indeed, I am very, wholeheartedly aware that...
Thanks for reading. Now if you'll excuse me...Gifs source: here
, and Tumblr search option, as well as Google.**EDIT**:
so I just noticed that for whatever reason Photobucket decided to lovely screw up several of the pics this post contains, the pics it relies on in order to get my point across *facepalm* Not to worry though as I finally decided to switch to another photo storage so now the images will stay as they are. If you happened to see this post and some of the pictures were missing or unavailable, I encourage you to try to see it again.
Thank you and may everyone have a wonderrrrful day! <3
