can we just talk about how much ciel is clinging onto sebastian
this is probably the saddest picture and panel in the manga, because you see a broken beyond repair little boy, clinging to his own death but only saviour. you can see how human and broken ciel really is in this, and sebastian’s true nature and indifference to human emotions. there is so so much to this picture, more than just ‘ciel clinging to sebastian’. he’s not even clinging because of shipping sake, he is clinging because he’s too little for the shit that’s happened to him, too young to face all of life’s harsh truths, too young to sell his soul to the devil and kill so many people. he had a panic attack and painful flashbacks from his past, you can see that he is still pained by it and, although he hides it every day, this picture really shows what’s going on in his mind and heart.
