This is the first gif set I have ever made, and it’s been a long time since I made a gif for anything at all. I’m going to get better at it.
Now, can we talk about how awesome Lennier is? How he is devoted to Delenn, not simply because she is powerful or beautiful, or that he covets anything about her, it’s that being near her helps him see the world through the eyes of a better version of himself. He loves her because she sees him from a higher place, and she makes him believe it. Over the past four years it has made him stronger, and wiser, and this is one of the earliest instances in which we see the fire with which he protects that world. I love how all the religious caste start to look more and more guilty as the scene progresses, and how they even look to the leader of their consipiracy as if to say: ‘I KNEW this was a bad idea.’
Or how At the start of the scene Lennier sighs and looks up as if to say: ‘I don’t have time for your shit right now’ Then when he is thanked he looks ready to slap someone. But still, he reminds them all that there is a better person inside all of them, and if they’d swallow their pride for a moment then Delenn may just show it to them.
