netflix’s 3%, episode 2 (2016)

it’s a common thing in scifi and fantasy stories to put a disabled character in their narratives or give a physically abled character a (mostly physical) disability for the purpose of offering them the chance to “cure” themselves through the story. of course it’s bc most of these stories are written by people who didn’t experienced some kind of situation like that. in this scene of 3%, fernando is telling michele that he felt his legs again bc he was given an opportunity to taste what the “better” place - the one they’re trying to go to - can offer to you; in other words the opportunity to be physically abled like most of people. usually they don’t put in these characters all the years or months or days that they had to deal with their disability and try to accept it as hard as they can bc that was their reality, that was how their lives would be for the rest of their lifetime. and here you have fernando, a brilliant black boy, who grew up in a poor and fucked up place, dropping truth bombs. it’s something we all should think more about, even more and more if we’re writing similar characters at some point. watch 3%, btw. 

yurio walks into a room.

viktor and yuuri are sobbing into each others’ arms

phichit, leo, and guang hong are laying on the floor, reevaluating their lives

seung gil, chris, emil, and michele are staring into the abyss with tears fighting to be released

otabek is unfazed where he stands at the dj booth

“otabek? what happened?” yurio asks, tiptoeing around his peers. “why are there like this?”

otabek makes direct eye contact with his friend before putting on his noise canceling headphones.

“the new ed sheeran album” is the only answer before he turns on the music

suddenly yurio finds himself on the ground, suddenly both in love and heartbroken and all the feels in between as he joins the other skaters on the ground

otabek wins the next grand prix

a non ridere per primi
guardandosi negli occhi
e alcuni sono così bravi
che diventano tristi
per la vita intera.
