Day 15: The couple that are at their moral worst when around each other.
Gaius Baltar/Caprica Six (Battlestar Galactica)



Icons are here.

So... this one feels rather self-explanatory? I mean, morality is not exactly something I pay much attention to in my wrong!ships, but the initial foundation of their relationship was her using him in order to annihilate the human race. After that, most of their morally terrible decisions are motivated by imaginary versions of each other, rather than them actually being together, but it's their love for one another that leads them to obey their imaginary friends. That's not to say Gaius and Caprica aren't good for each other... just bad for literally everyone else in the universe, lol. Which makes it doubly hilarious to me how much I adore that they get one of the few "happy" endings in the show. Caprica Six, the Cylon who was the face of destruction, and Baltar, the human cockroach who manages to survive the apocalypse and everything after AND gets the girl in the end. LOL. The ending of the series was kind of a hot mess, but bless its little heart if it didn't get that part right.

Lol truth. I support everything you've said. It's funny that after the miniseries, everything Gaius and Six are motivated to do by their head!versions isn't... actually morally wrong? For Six anyway. Survival for Gaius, with a hint of vague selflessness. But their good intentions pave the way to TERRIBLE THINGS anyway.

This is the best summation.

Good post, you have my feels.
