dangermousie: (Faith OTP by vierran45)

The thing that strikes me so much about Encounter's OTP is that he is so open and unguarded and explicitly emotionally vulnerable and that is what she is so drawn to, after being surrounded by cold calculating people who play games. (Her own mother!)

In contrast, there are no games - there is what you see is what you get. Not only that, but the way he lights up wheneber she responds to his overtures - it's such openness and she is not used to it. And she drinks it in as someone who has been deprived of it her whole life.

And it's not just that - he doesn't want anything from her but her, for herself. When she is seen as a commodity, a path to power or connections, this must be an incredible change.

And of course the fact that he's emotionally forthright and fearless and willing to put himself out there. And you can tell she yearns to take that but is terrified to. When he told her he missed her, I nearly died. They both have such expressive faces.
