Guys, let's admit it.
For once in your fandom life (twice if you were there for SPN 15x18) a part of you actually believes a ship you're shipping is going to become canon.
No matter what your brain AND your experience say. You heard Loki telling he's bi, you saw his wistful expression while talking about love and "real", you noticed how agitated he got when he found out that everyone at the TVA is a variant and you thought: oh my gosh they're gonna go for it. They're going to make Lokius canon.
Now, we still know it's a feeble hope, and that we're opening ourselves up to SO MUCH disappointment.
BUT... that tiny part of us still, somehow, believes.
What can I say, we're all a bit masochistic in here and boy, I'm proud of it.
