    21 Reactions That Perfectly Sum Up Everyone's Love For Nina And Matthias From "Shadow And Bone"

    I love these two more than waffles.

    Warning: There are obviously spoilers ahead for Shadow and Bone Season 1!

    Shadow and Bone is finally on Netflix, and I can't seem to talk about anything else.

    As a fan of Leigh Bardugo's Grishaverse novels, it has been amazing to watch these characters and this world come to life.

    While I love Alina, The Darkling, Mal, and The Crows, my absolute favorite Grishaverse characters are Nina and Matthias.

    So, to watch Danielle Galligan and Calahan Skogman bring them to life was incredible, and I haven't stopped talking about it.

    Nina telling Matthias, "No. I'm beguiling you" and Matthias telling her to stop and smiling

    I mean, some of the Nina and Matthias scenes from the show were taken right from the pages of the Six of Crows duology.

    Matthias and Nina introducing themselves

    I truly love them more than waffles.

    Nina saying, "Thank you for saving me" and Matthias responding, "You did the same for me"

    Like me, the rest of the internet can't stop talking about Nina and Matthias. So here are some of the best reactions:

    β€œI love you” β˜…β˜†β˜†β˜†β˜† "You're better than waffles, Matthias Helvar." β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…β˜…

    He got to his feet and offered her his hand. "I'm Matthias." "Nina," she said, taking it. "Nice to make your acquaintance." Six of Crows, Ch. 20 #shadowandbone

    #shadowandbone spoiler - - - god i love cal’s acting so so much. u can tell thru his facial expression in that scene where matthias is holding onto nina that he was thinking of letting go & had that internal conflict within himself of what to do.
