* FandomRivalry: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-MysTEBNyA Extinguished]], another short film revolving around the concept of love represented through symbols and trying to hide it. The factor of the main character trying to hide his love (to no avail) from the love interest doesn't help either.

* FandomRivalry:
** A rather one-sided one with ''WesternAnimation/TheEmojiMovie'', if only because that film has so few fans to begin with. The two animated films were released within days of each other and fans of the short like to use it as the movie's ultimate foil, that the low-budget indie film made by two art school students is an artistic and highly personal masterpiece while the multi-million dollar feature is a forgettable, [[ClicheStorm by-the-numbers]] cash grab, complete with a [[TokenRomance token straight romance]] and transparent attempts to pander to LGBT viewers that were only considered a CluelessAesop.

* TearJerker:
** When the cute, lovable, anthropomorphic heart gets literally split into two. All it wanted was to bring Sherwin and Jonathan together.
** ''Happy'' tears when Jonathan brings half of Sherwin's heart back, allowing it to heal, and then sits next to Sherwin and smiles. Jonathan's heart then appears, too, and the screen fades to black as the two hearts combine into one.


* SugarWiki/HeartwarmingMoments:
** The heart's pure, unadulterated joy upon seeing Jonathan. It captures the feeling of first love ''amazingly'' well.
** Jonathan in general is clearly a very nice kid. He's obviously confused by Sherwin's behavior, but he's kind and nonjudgmental about it. When he finds out that Sherwin has a crush on him, he doesn't mind at all, and is implied to reciprocate.


* JustHereForGodzilla: Disregarding actual homophobes, there are viewers who feel that the LGBT aspect is really the only interesting thing about the short and that it's an otherwise by-the-numbers love story that wouldn't be as interesting with a heterosexual couple.

Added DiffLines:

* MemeticMutation: The shot of Sherwin hiding from Jonathan behind a tree is popular with shitposters. They like to replace either Sherwin or Jonathan (or both) for humorous effect. One particular edit replaced Jonathan with ''[[ScrewYourself another Sherwin]]''.

Added DiffLines:

* PortmanteauCoupleName: "Josh" for Jonathan/Sherwin. And yes, it's [[RuleOfFunny intentionally confusing]]. There are alternatives, of course.


* CrowningMomentOfHeartwarming:

* FriendlyFandoms: ''WesternAnimation/StevenUniverse'' fans '''love''' this short. In fact, a good number of SU centered channels gave the short a ColbertBump. Also, Sherwin and Jonathan are [[CounterpartComparison commonly compared]] to Ruby and Sapphire.

* DiscriminateAndSwitch:
** Many of the comments call the film disgusting because Sherwin's heart is continuously getting dirty.
* FandomBerserkButton:
** Claiming the short is "pandering" to LGBTQ-friendly ideas is a good way to piss off fans. Being [[HeteronormativeCrusader outwardly homophobic]] will most likely get you killed.
** Attempting to {{Rule 34}} Sherwin and Jonathan.
** Giving the mixed Latino Jonathan a RaceLift.


* SuspiciouslySimilarSong: The main theme of the short sounds a lot like the "Reprise" theme from ''Anime/SpiritedAway''.
** Others could say it sounds like the main theme to ''Film/ThePolarExpress'', "Believe".
*** Or a part of ''{{Film/Elf}}'''s [[https://m.youtube.com/#/watch?v=mYkHQkCZUT0 main theme.]]
