I-LOVE-THIS-SCENE-SO-MUCH

how they dare make Gaston a kind, not really pushy person who just wants to win girl’s heart. He doesn’t mock Belle for reading. He actually tries to understand her unlikely to the others. A character who went to war and now suffers from PTSD. Who just wants to live a peacful, happy life with a wife by his side. How they fucking dare do that and not expect that I would fall from him,

Can I be honest with you? Man to man? You know, your mom and me, we always try to treat you kids the same. Always have. Hasn’t always worked, because, well, you’re not all the same.

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.
