Let's talk about 13 Reasons Why for a moment (MOSTLY SPOILER-FREE FRIENDLY DISCUSSION)
Firstly, a show has never given me more emotions. From joy, to sadness, to fear, to anxiety, to confusion, to anger, to relief, to frustration, to utter sadness… the list honestly does not end. So in terms of entertaining, A+. These actors are so talented. How many crying scenes did almost every character have, and they nailed it every time. That’s talent.
The writers accurately represented high school. In MY high school experience, no one got raped but that sure as hell obviously doesn’t mean it doesn’t go on. They got the bitchiness so damn right and I loved watching the Hannah/Jessica/Alex friendship break apart because gosh, that shit happens in real life. The writing on the walls in the bathroom and the categorising of people into “lists” (best ass, funniest, etc) happened at my school. The list was stuck on walls all over my school and to this day we don’t know who wrote it. People get away with this stuff! Even though most of the stuff across the 13 episodes didn’t happen in my experience, of course they’re still ongoing issues but it’s the overall theme to be taken away: high school can be hell. Quote of the series: “you never know what’s going on in someone else’s life”.
Entertaining, yes, but I think it lacked so much on promoting that people going through what Hannah was, actually have options, and suicide should not be one of them. Hannah sought help in the final episode, and whilst the counsellor definitely cared and tried to help her, he was definitely responding inappropriately considering Hanna was reporting feeling “empty” and that she wants life to stop. (That scene… gosh. Speechless. So accurate.) No counsellor would ever let their patient walk out the doors that easily if they’re reporting intense feelings like that. I’ve seen people say that Hannah had high expectations for the counsellor to chase her out the door, but I disagree. He should have. He should not have let her go.
So, I feel like the show really went wrong with promoting options for getting help. I feel like showing a counsellor being useless actually might tell people that therapy/counselling is not worth the time and effort of speaking up, so don’t bother with it. That’s a really bad message. But also in general - I feel like there should’ve been at least ONE character who sought help for their personal issues. EVERYONE was shutting out their parents, EVERYONE was keeping secrets, no one was seeing the counsellor, no one saw a psychiatrist for medication, etc. No one sought help, which, I think, kind of came across like “be quiet, don’t speak, you’re in this alone”. Definitely not true. I got so excited when Clay slowly started telling his mum what’s happening, but he didn’t tell her the whole truth, which frustrated me and I think the show would’ve benefited if at least one character took at least one step to seeking help.
One thing critics are saying is that the show glorified suicide. Where?? How?? That was the hardest (most disturbing) scene I’ve ever watched, in any TV show, period. And the whole show in general served the purpose of showing the repercussions of suicide… which as we saw across 13 episodes there definitely were no positive repercussions, let alone the suicide being glorified. My heart absolutely broke for Hannah when she said something along the lines of “I know what I need to do now”.
The overall concept of getting answers (through tapes) as to why someone committed suicide is unrealistic. And I get that - at the end of the day it is a show trying to entertain. But, I think it’s important to highlight that the family and friends of someone who committed suicide generally will not get FULL closure as to why, because, well, not everyone leaves behind tapes or notes or messages.
I hope there is no second season. I feel like it needs to stop there. It was called “13 Reasons Why” and we know the 13 reasons now. Sure, there are some loose ends, such as why that person in the last episode did what they did to themselves, but I think that touches on my previous point: we don’t always get answers to this stuff. Sometimes we never find out why someone hurt them self and that’s realism. A second season may give closure on that and not having closure is realistic. Definitely hard, but realistic.
To summarise the show: damn entertaining, as a TV show has never given me that quantity of emotions to feel in a single hour. The show was very realistic in showing the current issues in society, however it lacked in promoting options for support. I don’t agree with critics that suicide was glorified, as not one part of me was saying “yes, good choice Hannah, suicide is the answer to ending it all!” Instead, my heart broke, saying “please don’t do this, it can and will get better if you get help”. I thought Hannah was making the WRONG choice, rather than the right choice to shut it all out. But I think the interpretation of Hannah’s suicide scene will vary across every individual.
Let me know what you thought, I think this is a very interesting topic! I’m so happy a show like this exists.
You woke up with a pounding headache and a throbbing pain in your shoulder and lower regions. You felt sick but also very hungry. You were laying on a bed, you assumed from the firm but comfortable mattress you were laying on and the soft comforter that covered your body. You slowly opened your eyes but squeezed them shut because of the bright light of the ceiling fan. You rubbed your eyes and slowly sat up. You blink a few times, your eyes adjusting to the light. Once your eyesight adjusted, you felt your blood run cold when you realized where you were.
You were in a large bedroom, possibly the master bedroom. You were sleeping on a king size bed, covered in black sheets and black pillows. The room was covered wall-to-wall in polaroid photographs and papers containing writing or drawings. The bathroom door was on the left-hand wall, the doorway open. The door must have been taken out. There was a flat screen television hooked up against the wall across the room from you, a table with multiple gaming consoles underneath it. You saw a dresser in the corner next to a curtain-less window. That familiar black duffle bag sitting on the top of the dresser.

Over and over, until the white paint is ruined.
He does this all week.
Every bathroom they find is vandalized.
None are safe.
Soon this isn’t enough and now it’s tables and chair being written on.
Is it a sign?
A message from god?
Maybe something more- or is it just a clear picture of the hell we all live through every day.
‘I’m taking writing requests for BMC ’ @trash-cass you know exactly what this is
hello this is a cute little highschool!AU for otayuri it’s my second fic ever don’t judge me
anyways this was supposed to be a funny little crack fic based on some starter but here we are with 3486 words and a whole lot of regret
The last thing Yuri Plisetsky expected to be doing with his day was searching for a certain handwriting, collecting samples to compare with a scribbled graffiti on a bathroom stall.
But hey, c'est la vie.
some canon-verse henry/ronan thoughts (i have additional thoughts in various aus but):
clearly they are flirting in bllb. sharpies are thrown, things are called farces, petitions are defaced. i would posit, based on this - on the fact that ronan went straight to pigtail pulling while henry was Not A Threat to his relationship or friendship with gansey - that henry and ronan have Some Sort Of History.
ronan doesn’t do the casual thing, clearly, but i do think it’s likely that henry, in possession of a decent gaydar, may have flirted with ronan prior to niall’s death for dual reasons of “this is a way to get a read on niall lynch’s kid for Plot Reasons” and “he is canonically the hottest member of the gangsey possibly bar gansey himself”. and i think that it’s possible! that pre-niall’s-death, ronan would not necessarily have shut him down point blank.
i would ask you to consider henry/pre-niall’s-death-ronan terrible teen gay-chickeny flirtation while gansey was mostly ronan’s only friend, and the possibility that this flirtation may or may not have been a way for ronan to distract himself a little while he was dealing with jealousy abt gansey making friends with noah and/or adam, because the boy gets jealous. obviously he comes to adore noah and adam but. he is a one man sort of boy and gansey went and found other people. ronan can find other people too! obviously he is terrible at it and then his dad died and he lost interest in absolutely anything but gansey and his family.
so like, henry and ronan went from having a pigtail-pulling closeted-gay-chicken kind of flirty relationship (which gansey, at least, and probably most other people, mostly misread as straight up antagonism, though some more observant kids possibly realized it was Gay Antagonism). not that they hung out like, together, alone, but definitely at school there was flirting!! they both have crushes on gansey but like, you know, there’s a limited pool of potential Gay Friends / Frenemies at aglionby. come on.
and they went from that to like… ronan going fucking Trauma Central, shaving his hair, getting tattooed, started going reckless and self-destructive in ways that probably convinced henry that ronan was k’s type of magic/jerk/etc after all. so pulling back from him would have been a combination of practicality (ronan is bad news, niall is now dead so there’s no need to get close to ronan, just to keep an eye on him) and hurt feelings (henry thought they were something like friends, also ronan is cute)
also, it is canon that someone wrote ronan’s phone number under the word BEELZEBUB in the nino’s bathroom in sharpie. who might have RONAN “what’s a cellphone and why do i need one” LYNCH’S NUMBER and also be dramatic enough that he would write it on a bathroom wall in sharpie and call him the devil??? i guess maybe k, but i think henry doing it in a fit of melodrama is funnier.
in conclusion please come talk to me about henry and ronan.
EDIT: i cant believe i forgot to talk about the possibility of henry flirting with ronan at tennis practice (henry is terrible at tennis) but please consider it. we know henry would join a sport to flirt with a boy given that he did join crew and then quit it. but. hand gesture. tennis is easier to dick around during sports time than crew is tho so he can just sit around waiting for a court to open up indefinitely.
Hey I got an idea, just a small one. If you’re trying to convay to your audience that “angry Teens” are writing “hate speech” on the bathroom walls and are really “damaging the other kids” . How about you know….actually writing some??? like???
“Don’t let the world bring you down” Tragic
“Don’t write on walls !! ^^” Down right hate speech
like this is a show that dragged out two rape scenes and a suicide but they didn’t think of taking an extra second going “Hey maybe we should take an extra second and like idk man liek actually writing some damaging shit on the walls. like something a little bit more ya know angry and damaging than: Hippie”
lowkey i was convinced neil was a trans boy at the beginning of the foxhole court and i still think it would make a solid AU
like okay maybe when his mother smuggles him
away it’s with him dressed as a boy because nathan thinks he has a daughter,
and maybe they can throw him off their trail a little, but neil’s mother dies and
he keeps dressing like a boy and choosing male names because that’s what feels
right (what’s felt right ever since his mother first changed his name). it’s
not a disguise anymore, his father’s men have caught up with him enough
times to know, but at least he can let himself have this, even if he’s not allowed any other truths
