I think it’s kind of like a fairy tale. Or old royalty. I don’t know! They’re really rare in this fandom!!
But for me, there’s something so innocent about an arranged marriage (in a case similar to what I like to write/read, where they’re able to take their time before they’re physical) but also kind of hot. Like they’re bound to each other. That’s it. And it’s romantic when they choose each other after all of it in both cases.
And I like pretending to be dating fics because you always know where they’re ending up, but getting there is the fun part, and also it’s like a lifetime movie network movie but with your otp.

OOHHHHHHHHH MYYYY GOOOOOOOOD HOLY SHIT THIS IS BLOWING MY FUCKING MIND
The reason Thor hesitates in picking up the hammer in Avengers is his fear that he will no longer be worthy after not protecting Coulson from his brother.
