Sheridan: Goodnight, my love… the brightest star in my sky.
Delenn: Goodnight, you who were my sky, and my sun, and my moon.
#10 | John Sheridan & Delenn (Babylon 5)
“Tomorrow is Sunday, Delenn. And I am going on a Sunday drive.”
- John Sheridan (Babylon 5, 5x22 Sleeping in Light)
THEY. THEY. THEY MAKE ME SQUISHY. They’re the sole reason why I went through three seasons of Babylon 5 in like 1.5 weeks and they make up such a huge reason why Babylon 5 is my one and only sci-fi space show. I love that it’s almost love at first sight, and yet it’s not. They developed, through their interactions together, through their need to get through some odd scrape, or if Delenn has to struggle through dinner when Sheridan decides he is an awesome Minbari cuisine chef (he isn’t). Also, Delenn is my favorite character. and John Sheridan is epic as hell. And they are perfect. JMS agrees. I honestly can’t decide what moment of their’s is my favorite because they’re all so very lovely. I really love their first “date”, but I also loved when Sheridan found out she was preggers. And when Delenn turned her freaking fleet on the Earth forces to protect Sheridan. That’s love, baby. But then I really love their goodbye (though it wasn’t a goodbye, it was a ‘good night’) in “Sleeping in Light” because it NEVER fails to make me bawl like a freaking little girl. Or how he faces his own death in “Comes the Inquisitor” or how she takes a knife in the back to protect him from her captors. Did I mention this adorable scene where she goes through all the English words for “grumpy” in describing how he’s been acting to his face and it’s just, so, so awesome. They are awesome. They make my soul happy and now I want to go watch “Severed Dreams” and “Falling Toward Apotheosis”.
