like honestly the whole part of Michael burning pictures of him and Jeremy just screams heartbroken, that poor nerd has a gigantic crush on Jeremy and his heart was crushed.
and like i’m also a very big advocate on how like, even if there weren’t any romantic undertones (but i mean like. c’mon) friends can break your heart just as terribly as anyone you’re romantically drawn to can. the musical pulls through on that so well and jsut. UGH
