Nothing too fancy, but I wanted to move my masking give-aways and WMW videos somewhere else other than my main channel. Since this is where they will all pop up from now on, make sure to subscribe because A LOT of videos will be coming your way soon. ;)
We need to talk about Carlos and Jane in Descendants 2
Okay, so, first of all: I’m not saying that you can’t ship them ‘cause everyone knows that in Descendants franchise there’s a lot of couples that we like. This is not a hate post. So, if you ship them, be happy and have a nice day :)
But this is something that was really bothering me since I saw the BTS special today, so I need to talk about it: Carlos and Jane really looks forced.
It’s like they feel obligated to pair up him with literally anyone,and they chose Jane. When I watched Carlos new scenes I saw the way that he’s always trying to ask Jane out or something like that, but IT LOOKS REALLY FAKE!
And I don’t think this because I think that he’s gay. It’s because I don’t think Carlos needs to be paired up with someone. Yes, I think Jaylos is a better ship, but the thing is: we don’t need Carlos dating someone just because it’s cuter. We just need Carlos. He has an amazing history that they could explore a little bit.
In “Ways to be Wicked” one of his lines is: “Hear her voice in my head”.He lived with the fucking Cruella De Vil! Can you imagine how was his childhood? This isn’t something that you forget easy just because you live in a better place now, or because you have a crush.
It must be very hard for him to go back to the place where his mother lives. The person who tortured him for years. But he goes, because he cares about Mal. His friends (Mal, Evie and Jay) were his family during all the years that he lived on the isle, and Carlos does anything for them, even if that means that he might have to face Cruella again. This is something that they needed to show in the movie.
I didn’t read the books because I never saw them here in Brazil, but in the first movie, Carlos and Jane just danced together in “Set It Off”. It was just this. I know that we’re talking about a kingdom with the characters from the fairy tales, but, I don’t think that one dance made Carlos fell in love with her. And, in my opinion, their scenes were kinda (I mean, very) awkward…
What I’m saying is that Carlos is a survivor. He has a very good history and they shouldn’t waste it just because they think that they have to pair him up with someone.
What Carlos need isn’t a girlfriend or boyfriend for sure. He’s a badass.
And I’m saying again: feel free to ship him with whoever you want. I will. But this is my opinion about Carlos and Jane in Descendants 2.
I needed to unburden, sorry :3
Love you all <3
P.S.: I was thinking about writing another posts about the other characters, what do you think? Yeah, I guess I will…
