happy to talk

Hey children, Did You Know?
Representation isn’t exclusively important for the people being represented!!!
White kids need to watch POC being heroes too!!! It shows them that people can save the day regardless of their race!!!
Boys need to watch girls being strong and powerful!!!! It shows them that people deserve respect regardless of their gender!!!
Slim kids need to see confident and adored fat characters!!!! It shows them that everyone can be loved and love themselves regardless of their body types!!!!
Cishet kids need to watch queer kids falling in love (or just not falling in love!!!) and having happy endings!!! It shows that everyone is valid and everyone deserves to be happy regardless of sexuality or identity!!!!
Representation isn’t just for minorities, it’s important so that kids can learn that yes, they can be whoever they want to be and they deserve good things, but so do people who aren’t like them!!!!

“In the absence of human relationships I formed bonds with paper characters. I lived love and loss through stories threaded in history; I experienced adolescence by association. My world is one interwoven web of words, stringing limb to limb, bone to sinew, thoughts and images all together. I am a being comprised of letters, a character created by sentences, a figment of imagination formed through fiction.” - Tahereh Mafi, Shatter Me

I love how it shows that Jin really can be a big mood booster for Namjoon.

Namjoon really thinks a lot about things, because he’s so smart, but some times he can spiral into seeing something good as a flaw.

Something that really moved me was this part when they were talking about their struggles at the beginning and how would it be if they had to go through it all over again and Namjoon was kind of frustrated and said “Why do we always talk so much about this!!”

And Jin calmly said “Because it’s not gonna happen”

I felt like in that moment, Namjoon saw things from other perspective instead of getting worried/frustrated about it.

Namjin make a great team because I think Jin is a simple minded person that says “It’s going to be okay” and he trusts as he works. Namjoon on the other hand, worries as he works.

Together they get the mood and the maturity to think and overcome.
