"I'd Kiss You If It Wouldn't Kill Me."
Relationships take hard work, especially when you're a reanimated corpse whose boyfriend will re-dead you with a single touch, or you're a lonely pie-maker cursed with an inexplicable power that makes you real good at being a private detective and real bad at love. Rather than being your typical "will they, won't they," Pushing Daisies is the ultimate "can they, should they," taking all the quirks and complications of long-term love and slapping a technicolor filter, and some whipped cream, on top.
Allen "Key Lime" Ibrahim
The ultimate misunderstood badass, Allen thinks you haven't been hugged properly. It's like an emotional heimlich. Someone puts their arms around you and they give you a squeeze and all your fear and anxiety come shooting out of your mouth in a big wet wad and you can breath again. They love hugs.
Magellan "Pumpkin" Pfluke
Magellan often stares off blankly into the distance as the quaint British man in his head describes his feelings of unrequited love, or forces him to remember his boyhood at a creepy boarding school. Sometimes, he also remembers his girlhood as a world-class jockey, but we don't really talk about that too much.
