I remember reading this two part story months back, still affects me the same way.

Rather than this being just some type of OTP or shipping doujin, I think it paints a really vivid picture on ulterior motives for joining the league, reminding us that as alpha as pantheon may be, he is still a human being.

I just remember going teary eyed when I first read it, his ult ties so well into always being there for leona, even if he is far away, he'll be there when she needs him.

Leona being innocently flirtatious (probably not the best description for how she comes off in the comics) makes you love her even more.

I wish I could animate, because I would make a series of this

I myself am not completely up on any larger plans, I can only comment on what I work on directly with them.
whoops I accidentally downvoted you

As a Leona main, this makes smile and wish all Pantheons were like this.

What interests me in this sort of story is a continuing theme that people seem to attach to. Leona, that she's sought after but never quite returning of the affections. In my eyes this stands pretty true with where I think we want to go with her. Pantheon might indeed have a deep love for her, something not obvious or overt written into the lore, but Leona is otherwise oblivious or, dunno the right word to use, "pure", to show interest.

I sort of view Leona in this odd puritanical nature, sort of "above it all" concerning mortal love affairs. That's not to say she's ambivalent, I think her Solari calling just tends to trump a lot of her emotions concerning romance, but the human urge can always be calling. Personally I like that because it causes tension with her, Diana and Pantheon. I can see some pretty cool stories coming out of that triangle. I can see alliances and other turns. I'd love to see if we can flesh it out more.
So what you're saying is Pantheon may harbor a hidden crush on Leona
and Leona is romantically oblivious

...

This sounds like an anime plot.

As a member of the Touhou fan community, this isn't all that unusual for me. Touhou has more 'main' characters in it than even League of Legends, but thanks to the fandom, each and every one is a fully developed character with a variety of attachments and relationships with other characters. Friends, rivalries, family-like bonds, even some hate floating around.
