When I saw the pic, I thought of Hyuuga and Ayanami immediately. Hyuuga is Ayanami's best friend like Mikage as Teito's best friend. He is also like Hakuren or Frau in their relationship (Because of Yukikaze's death like Mikage's and Hyuuga was always there to protect Ayanami, etc). And that has made me wonder how strong their feelings for each other are. Also that is the reason why I love them so much.
