Sometimes I think about season 1 and how Murphy and Bellamy both actively hated Clarke and then the last time Murphy saw the two of them together they were at each others throats - then he came back in I Am Become Death and Bell is like
did he do something to you?
and Murphy’s probably thinking wtf i wasn’t gone long enough for you to be in this deep
It’s kind of fucked up that Sam and Tucker didn’t call an ambulance when their bestfriend was not only electrocuted, but blasted with an intense otherworldly energy, regardless of the fact that he got up afterwards. I mean damn, I’d be too freaked out not to call for one (or, at least, would have ran immediately to his parents) And they just deemed him okay enough to shut up about it like “You good bro. You may or may not be dead, but you’re good.”
The cool thing about The Raven Cycle is that the aesthetic posts can have like. Psychic and tarot stuff. Prep schools boys in prep school uniform. Magic forests and caves. Explosions. Molotov cocktails. Cars. Bloody knuckles and bloody knees. Guns. Boats. Church. Cows. Barns. Ravens. Nightmare monsters. Medieval kings. Fruit yoghurt. Miniature towns. Market carts. Pink switchblades. Ghosts. Grease-stained hands and clothes. Freaking coca-cola. And all those are like “yes this is 100% raven cycle whoa”
The great thing about being a larrie that has been around a minute and read all the things and watched all the inconsistencies and relished all of the weird out of place denials, is that despite articles and dumb talk show games and whatever else that happens, I still don’t give a fuck about what the public party line is because I still know the truth.
