I was talking about future Wilhelm and Simon getting married in one of the GCs, and now I can't stop thinking about it. I'm just gonna share my thoughts here as well, so you can all suffer with me. Also, feel free to add your own thoughts or version of our idiots proposing to each other, I want to know how you all picture ittt.
I feel like Wille would want to get married purely so he could say, "that's my husband," and Simon would only agree to get married because Wilhelm wants to, and he knows it'll make Wilhelm happy. I also think Wille would be the one to propose. He would plan for it to be all sweet and romantic with a whole candlelit dinner or plan to go to a lookout on the side of a mountain with candles, wine, and a blanket spread out. But he'd end up doing it when they're laying in bed one day because the moment is so perfect. He'd reach into his nightstand, and from the very back of the drawer, he would pull out the box and be all shy about it. And Simon would be so smitten and tease Wille, but ultimately say yes, but only after making Wille blush. And then they would make sweet, sweet love with Wilhelm leaning against the headboard and Simon's above, resting his hand on Wilhelm's chest so they can both admire the ring and look into each other's eyes with small smiles that say 'I love you, and I want to be with you forever.'

The way you act at a party when you know that your crush will be/is there:
You are scanning the room immediately as you enter.
When you spot your crush, you are kinda shell-shocked. Even more so when you lock eyes.
You are enjoying the party, but every other minute you check on your crush's location.
When your crush does anything out of the ordinary (like dancing awkwardly on the dancefloor) you cannot stop staring and smiling (awwww, that's my idiot).
Be aware: The second you loose your crush in the crowd, your crush will reappear suddenly by your side and start a conversation. You will not be prepared and behave like a weird blob.

Initially, Simon is completely unimpressed by the prince of Sweden who has suddenly come to be a part of his daily school life. He’s actually not swayed by wealth or status at all. We see this from the very beginning, when August approaches him to procure booze for Wilhelm’s initiation party. Simon has zero interest in doing what August is asking of him, even with the possibility of an invitation to the elite party on the table. August is a pompous jerk to him, hasn’t given him the time of day in the month he’s been at Hillerska. It’s only when Simon can potentially be “of use” to him that August even acknowledges his existence. Simon sees right through the phony act and wants no part in helping this asshole.
Simon immediately assumes that Wilhelm is the same as his cousin. Arrogant. Self-centered. Shamelessly rich off of the backs of the working class. Maybe he’s even worse than August because Wilhelm is second in line to the throne, unlike his second cousin who is nowhere close to it. Simon minces no words in class when talking about the rich versus the poor. He’s been looked down upon by the other students, whispered about behind his back. He knows what many of the kids that go to this school are like, what they think about him and Sara.
It’s only when Wilhelm approaches Simon at lunch, and agrees with him, that he begins to think maybe his initial perception of him was wrong. Simon is definitely skeptical at first. I doubt anyone has even attempted to speak to Simon with any sort of friendliness in the month he’s been at Hillerska and now, the prince has approached him to introduce himself. And there’s no ulterior motive. Wilhelm is kind and nervous and soft-spoken and so very clearly nothing like August. Nothing like the other rich kids.
Wilhelm trips while walking away, smiling shyly at his own clumsiness as Simon watches (he may be a prince, but he’s awkward and imperfect), and I think that humanizes him a bit in Simon’s eyes. They glance at each other from opposite ends of the table and Simon is… amused and intrigued by this cute, shy, friendly, awkward boy who is nothing like he thought he’d be.
The next thing we see is Simon, outside and alone, clearly struggling internally. He remembers August’s earlier offer. If he gets booze for Wilhelm’s party, he could be invited. And if he gets to come to the party, maybe just maybe he will get to have another interaction with this boy who has piqued his interest. He’s deciding if he’s willing to compromise his ideals and give into August’s request… for Wilhelm. For that chance to see him outside of the classroom or the lunchroom. He nervously approaches August but insists he and Sara get to come to the party if he gets the booze. He knows how August operates and he won’t risk August reneging his offer. It works. They’re in. He’s just got to go visit his estranged father to secure the booze first.
All of this to say, I love how the moment Wilhelm is kind to Simon, the moment he changes his mind about Wilhelm and realizes he is drawn to him as maybe more than a friend, he reconsiders August’s offer. He’s very uncomfortable approaching him to tell him he will get the booze but it’s worth it to him to secure the invite to the party. He’s uncomfortable visiting his father, but again, worth it. He can’t help but grin when his dad brings up impressing “a cute guy.” He’s already smitten by Wilhelm and there’s no stopping it.
