Eddie admitting he's scared and needs help, being emotionally vulnerable, wearing Dan's sweater.
(I mean seriously who's sweater was that anyway, has to be Dan's. )
That's exactly what I want in my protagonists as a dude.
Gimme the Eddie Brocks. Gimme the Aragorns. Gimme the Samwise Gamgees as examples for masculinity.
Gimme men who can be strong, who can be brave, who can write songs and poetry. Gimme men who can be vulnerable and need to rely on others to help them. Gimme unhinged men who learn stability and work on mental health. Gimme men who are stable and kind. Gimme men who aren't too proud to admit their mistakes. Gimme men with eating disorders and neurodivergence. Gimme men who aren't afraid to show their "feminine traits". Gimme men who become genuine friends with their exes and their new partners. Gimme men who become friends with other man and aren't afraid to hug or kiss them. Gimme soft men.
I say this as a man myself.
But we need more representation like that.

Per the Legolas/Sauron ship situation, I've seen Beauty and the Beast mentioned, might I also suggest a 1000 Nights Sheherezade dynamic thrown in?
Ooh!! Don’t believe I’ve ever heard of that before—I did a quick search and I’m intrigued so far! I’d be keen to learn more though, especially regarding Mairon and Legolas, if you can help :D

I would like it to be known that I’m loving the Legolas x Mairon stuff that is coming onto my dash. It is a joy to wake to.
Let it also be known that I love it too XD and for the ship, I now headcanon that Mairon “promoted” Legolas to Mordor’s lieutenant against his will.
No, I didn’t consult anyone or ask for their permission, but there.
