When I read your fic about Isak not wanting kids I felt such a wave of gratitude! This is not meant to put down other writers and their visions, but it was just liberating to see a different take on what seemed to be a universal truth in the Skam fandom; Isak and Even have to have kids. Though I do feel slightly uncomfortable when they go to the lenghts of making Isak pregnant because it clearly matters to them that the child resembles them as well, it's not just kids for kids sake.
thank you for this ask; it’s really nice to hear my fic made you feel so grateful!
i’ve said this in a few comments on the fic, but i simply felt that it was needed. all interpretations of what entitles as happiness are welcome; that’s what’s so great about fanfic!
and i think that isak’s familial trauma would really keep him from having his own kids. some might say that’s keeping him in a destructive circle. i disagree; i see it as him choosing his own happiness. even might be a lot more keen on having kids, that’s true. but to soothe my own soul, i really needed this representation of isak – a kid from a broken home that chose for himself what happiness is.
which, to me, means him choosing even and them staying each other’s sole top priority ‘til the day they die.
it’s a bit unconventional, so i’m so glad my interpretation could soothe someone else as well!
