Holy frick I just remembered by rereading the series that Wicked Lovely literally has everything that YA readers have been complaining about not seeing:
- Sex positivity
- Bisexual representation
- Strong diverse female characters
- Gay relationships
- Subtle rejections of heteronormativity
- And a frickin beautiful and complex storyline about fairies, magic, politics, war, tattoos and love that spans over five books and a bunch of short stories/novellas
List of complete coincidences that do not mean anything at all when compiled but give me hope anyway:
-Wicked has been slated for an upcoming film
-Ben Platt loves Wicked
-The Wicked film has yet to be cast
-Ben Platt will be free of Broadway commitments as of November 20
-Ben Platt’s father will be producing the Wicked movie and his brother once played Fiyero on stage
-Ben Platt has played roles in movies produced by his dad before
i’ve waited decades for you to want me around, begged to be in your presence. that was before her. things are different now. i’ll always come when you want me. how many times have i told you that? that won’t change. ever.
“What does it mean when nightmares dream of peace? When shadows wish for light?”
super fucking pretentious aesthetic/moodboard for 2010!15 year old!me’s favourite book lmao.
but also lowkey ink enchange is still p. great it has creepy faeries and super feminist undertones (overtones? i still don’t know what these words mean help) and the main relationship is polyamorous and bisexual; would recommend if you can deal with YA and weird flowery metaphors.
Bmc Tumblr headcanons (has anyone done this yet? Probably)
-Jeremy has a secret furry blog but his main blog is an aesthetic blog for him to go on when he’s sad because it makes him happy
-Michael has a meme blog and Jeremy has notifications on for it so he’s always the first to like all of Michael’s posts which Michael thinks is just adorable
-Sometimes Michael’s memes get a little too self-deprecating and whenever that happens Jeremy pms him cat pictures (Michael can’t not smile)

-But he also has a secret blog for reblogging meaningful shit and makes posts about pining after a “secret someone”
