It’s a little different up close, huh?
THIS. THIS is EXACTLY why Jack wants people to see him so desperately. Look at the middle gif- He looks so tired and sad and pained because he lives this; loves children. Seeing their kindness and innocence, seeing their specialties, their strengths and everything about them that he cherishes. He’s SO fond of children- he loves them so much. He loves making them happy, making them have fun, giving them joy. He LOVES spending time with them just goofing around- he loved it before he became Jack Frost too. When he says it’s a little different close up, he MEANS it with every fiber of his being. He would probably give anything just to have Jamie see him in moments like this, which is one of the reasons why I love Jack so much.
