A couple of years ago, I read that Ciel probably chose Sebastian’s looks to more closely resemble his father. Idk how true that is but it seems sadly canon.
Will Ciel’s dad ever stop looking so much like Sebastian

demandhumbly request a fic where HoriKashi have to pretend they’re in a relationship for some reason or other and for a while it works because they’re both fantastic actors
except one day they realize it’s not acting anymore
I thought that I would feel better once the board exams ended and I could put down my books and thousands of flashcards. But once I got home I couldn’t breathe. The end of the exams didn’t make anything better. They just mean that I now have to face the reality that I need to make decisions about my future. I need to apply for residency. I need to face the consequences of the fact that I didn’t do very well in med school and that the only attending who can vouch for me is my mentor so suddenly I have no one to approach who can write my recommendation letters for me. I’m dying. I can’t breathe. I’m not sure if I even want to be alive—I plan my suicides daily and lovingly with the dedication of a bricklayer—let alone be a doctor, let alone be a surgeon. I don’t know what to do. I’ve run out of time.
I feel that Sakura is kind of serving as the everyman here. She’s still not a regular shoujo heroine (still kooky and a bit insane for Nozaki) but she serves as kind of a pleasant foil to the insanity around her, plus when her expectations (which parallel shoujo tropes) are shown, their sudden subversion is hilarious.
To fully appreciatte the beauty of how meta GSNK really is, you have to understand that not only every character is a desconstruction of a common shoujo manga trope, but also that every single ship in that series is based on a series of misunderstadings due to lack of communication which ALONE is the most common shoujo manga trope of all.
