The difference between Cal and Aseon vs Priscilla and Zeus is that Cal and Aeson were friends first and that they had trust to begin with. It’s recently due to whatever is going on that their relationship is straining and thus the deteriorating trust. They had it to begin rather than completely being absent
At the very least, it’s made clear Cal and Aeson’s trust issues is because they care. Cal thinks he’s too reckless and Aeson feels he should carry the weight of the world alone (sans MC)
And again, they were not devoid of having trust from the get go. It is/was there. So when Cal says she doesn’t trust him, it’s not she doesn’t really but she doesn’t like where his decisions are going
(And as of now to what we know)
Priscilla, at the very least, did not trust Zeus from the beginning and implied by gia that even during the duration of their relationship did not. There was no basis for a romantic bond between her and Zeus as of her current journals
(The dude’s introduction in her diary is that she views him like he’s a stalker does not bode well)
Priscilla has been referred to as someone Zeus “owns” or someone who Zeus thinks he’s entitled to. And this gets lampshaded a lot. Refer to how many times past/present rewrite that he talks about her as being “his” and other possessive terms/references. Priscilla also knows this.
Most Explicit Reference
Zeus thinks he has some semblance of claim over me. He has never outright said so, but the way he watches me and talks of me expresses the notion enough
And Priscilla’s first instinct – as per her diary entry – is to run from him because she straight up thinks he’s bad news and continuously writes (in her entries) why she does not trust him, want to be around him, etc.
So given these two at the very least, I don’t see how this can develop into love when clearly she:
is held captive and has never been given free reign to believe she is not in a prisoner of Olympus – her birthing the MC says a lot when she says they are her ticket out
the imbalance of power within the relationship (like in an earlier thread here talked of how consensual was her relationship with Zeus given he’s a god and she’s a mortal, and reference texts are very explicit in how Zeus deals with his conquests, I mean can she say no to him and it is a no Zeus will honor?)
So as someone who has worked with people dealing with similar situations as Priscilla, it is very concerning (to me) that this gets labeled as “love”
Attraction, yes. But love? Very leery of the term to describe them as such
