I’m very not over the fact of this. THIS ONE SECOND MOMENT OF SEASON 9 EPISODE 3 OF RVB.
North notices the ledges collapsing and he’s already twisting and lunging himself towards South who hasn’t necessarily reacted yet. The third picture is when he finally got out his “Get Down”.
South doesn’t pull away she doesn’t try running she just instinctively puts her hand over her head and curls into North as he covers her. He covers her making sure she’s safe and if anything, he’d get hurt first/take most of the blow protecting her.
GOD I’M SORRY I LOVE THE DAKOTA TWINS AND THIS ONE SECOND GETS ME SO MUCH.
