i know “yor finally gets assigned to kill twilight/loid finally gets assigned to kill thorn princess” is a really fun and popular future plot line people like to think about, but i think “yor gets assigned to kill desmond sr” could cause equal amounts of drama. because operation strix is not KILLING desmond, it’s getting close to him and infilitrating his inner circle. and you can’t do that if he’s… dead
cue shenanigans of twilight miserably trying to keep this horrible man alive from this demoness who he had assumed was an urban legend and yor going “who is this fucker who keeps getting in my way”
Beni, Loid-san's penguin voice is the cutest thing ever!!!!
for reals! that voice is adorable — he’s such a good dad, anything to cheer up his daughter even if it means acting as one of her toys and yor playing along as well. literally anything for their little anya 😭
both of them blushing while doing it too, cutest parents ever.
Throughout the 64 chapters of Spy x Family we slowly see the evolution of Twilight into Loid Forger.
When Operation Strix was first conceived and assigned to Twilight. He had to get married and become a Father in 7 days in order to infiltrate an Academy that a dangerous politician goes to in order to prevent a Cold War from going hot. Right here he is Twilight an Agent of WISE due to his annoyed reaction of WISE wanting him to start a family ASAP. But regardless he will approach this mission like all the others he’s done.
With cold ruthless efficiency.
But after adopting Anya
and marrying THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE Yor. We slowly start to see the Loid Forger persona take over Twilight.
From renting a castle and becoming “Loidman” to “rescue” his daughter as part of his celebration for Anya getting into Eden Academy.
To stressing out about his wife being unhappy and immediately taking Yor on a date (with 100 different plans to go on said date.) as his way to thank her for all the hard work she does.
Getting a giant plushie toy for Anya despite being overworked and tired from all the other missions.
Reminding Fiona/Nightfall that he is a married man.
And carrying his sleeping family after spending the whole day with them.
It’s pretty clear Loid Forger has taken over Twilight and the lines between real and fake blur for Loid just as it does for Yor, but that’s okay. Throughout his life it was just himself and no one else. But I think deep down Operation Strix was the best thing that could have ever happened to him. Yes he still needs to prevent a Cold War from breaking out, but he found a family in the process.
