Excerpts from an interview with friends and acquaintances of Eric and Dylan:
Meg Hains: I am black/white mixed. And when the media is coming up with this thing that Dylan and Eric were racist, they weren’t. They were my friends. They were very nice to me, both of them. I don’t get this whole racial thing that people are coming up with.
Devon Adams: Dylan and Eric did use racial slurs. Because, unfortunately, it’s becoming common. And what I have heard is they did call Isaiah an N before they shot him. I don’t think it meant that they were racist. I think that they were just using the word that they - unfortunately it’s true that it has bearing from the movies and TV - that they had learned is O.K.
Interviewer: What about the Nazi stuff?
Meg Hains: That is the biggest load of [expletive] I’ve ever heard. They never wore swastikas around their arm. Never. Not in this entire year that I’ve known them. No.
Dustin Thurman: Everyone said that they saluted to Hitler after a strike in bowling and stuff. That wasn’t true. If they got a strike, they would just sit down.
Devon Adams: If Dylan and Eric were like neo-Nazis or whatever, then they kept it secret. They didn’t proclaim it. And I don’t think Dylan was.
Just imagine, you’re sitting in class doing your work or whatever and there’s a knock at the door. Your teacher says “ come in “ and your favorite character is outside the door; you try not to lose your shit and your fave character is posing as an Government agent and asks you to step outside for a moment ‘to ask questions‘ and asks you to come with them to their world. What would you do?

me, an intellectual:
x company, an amazing canadian tv show about spies in nazi occupied france that definitely deserves more recognition and appreciation, starring beautiful and talented evelyne brochu, with many amazingly portrayed and complex characters and an excellent character development, that at some point will probably ruin your life
Dustin, Lucas, Will and Mike all meet on the train, sharing a compartment together because they’re just smol scared 1st years and hey these guys don’t look so scary.
Mike and Will are sorted into Hufflepuff together, Lucas into Slytherin (I’m Slytherin and I think he fits really well, it’s an honour that he’s one of us ) and Dustin into Ravenclaw (that boy is smart and always the one who came up with the science plans so yeah I’m sorting him into Ravenclaw)
They mean well with their magic but it usually goes wrong and ends up with them in detention.
One time they are sent into the forbidden forest with Hagrid where they bump into a lost 1st year Gryffindor - El.
They start hanging out with her as she doesn’t appear to have any friends of her own, she’s quiet but actually pretty cool.
Mike asks her to the Yule Ball in 4th year but only because everyone’s supposed to have a date and it’s easier to just go with a friend and it’s not like it’s a real date or anything, unless she wanted to but it’s not like he likes her or anything, it’s just as friends.
Spoiler alert: he has a massive crush on her.
They meet another Gryffindor in their 5th year that had slowly become friends with El. She’s loud and a really good Quidditch player and threatens Dustin with a hex if he tries anything - another one of the boys lost to the charms of a Gryffindor girl.
Max fits into the group as if she was there from the start. Others wonder how a group made up of all the houses works so well - they do butt heads sometimes but at the end of the day, they’re all still close friends.
In 5th year, Mike officially asks Eleven out and they go on cute dates into Hogsmede, late nights on the astronomy tower. When they have prefect duties in 6th year, they patrol the corridors at night hand in hand, ignoring the jokes and taunting from Peeves.
When McGonagall, who had been watching the two flit around their feelings for years, sees them together in the Great Hall, she laughs and exclaims “finally!”
