The Last of Us
do you think ellie and riley are more than friends? i got a kind of "strained romantic relationship" vibe from that trailer.

Not one bit, and it bothers me a little that some people actually took it that way! They’re young and young kids are playful. Plus, if you’re in a situation where you literally only have one person by your side, you’re going to be naturally close(r) with them/have a stronger bond than usual.
That’s just my personal opinion on it.
(unrated-g: ”Like… I’m not ruling it out, but it IS perfectly normal for two people of the same sex to be close and intimate without it being romantic or sexual. Friendship people.”)
