Unresolved Sexual Tension?
« on: October 04, 2012, 02:40:13 PM »
When Eva and Neil were watching the shuttle leave, Neil tries to put his hand on Eva's shoulder (or hold her hand) and she brushes him off. Any ideas of what Neil was trying to do and why Eva brushed him off? And why would Kan put that in there?

PS: I'm just curious.

PPS: Yes. I AM a TV Troper.

Hmmm. We might get to see this resolved in future chapters... Maybe.

I think he was going to push her off like she did to him at the lighthouse.

Maybe he was going to try to pull it off as a sweet moment, THEN push her off.

I like Jess' take on it. That'd be the most in-character :P

I just figured he was making a joke. :vikonsmile: But how do I explain it...

Neil doesn't handle emotional stuff very well. He thinks it's cheesy and all that. ;D So at this point, arguably the most emotional point in the game, he was just trying to lighten the mood with a little joke. I definitely wouldn't call it sexual tension! Well that's my take anyway.

Spoiler: show

I thought it was pretty obvious that they were doing a high-five. They did their job and completed the task, and like most teams who did an exemplary job of it go, they went, "Fuck yeah, we rule."

Of course, I really wouldn't be surprised if something develops along the way. It's far too obvious.

Yeah definitely looked to me like Neil reaching over but to my mind he was either doing it for lolz or to push Eva in.

I think Neil is quite fond of Eva. Kan has made it quite clear that they've known each other for a long time, and they know each other well. My friend has pointed out that they act a lot like a married couple. They do care about each other, but I don't think this will sprout into a romance any time soon, although they are quite adorable. This just ain't one of those corny stories where two friends fall in love with each other and live happily ever after in each other's arms. Neil might have the tiniest little crush on Eva, and he both annoys ad amuses Eva, but as the imaginary people say, "Work before Womance". Eva and Neil weren't the main idea in To The Moon, but their relationship should develop through the episodes.  :deepstuff: :Evapple:

That scene was really cute though. As well as,

"Y'know I... *scratches head bashfully* didn't really mean to call you a moron, right?"

"You know that I did, right?"


Eva's the serious, stone-faced one. Especially when at work. No time for feelings!

Neil's pretty squishy compared to Eva. :P
