thank you! ok so approximately 1.2 million years ago @jehnt prompted enjolras as a groupie and grantaire as a rock star au, and it was supposed to a little thing that turned into like 30k and ate my soul, and i don’t know if i can ever finish it, but i liked it quite a lot. not sure how i can post parts of it here for you all without massively spamming tumblr, so i put the first bit up on ao3. 8k and a complete sex scene, because who would i be if i didn’t give you that
For the twentieth time in twenty minutes, Enjolras asks himself what the fuck he thinks he’s doing.
As I’m sitting here writing part 10 to Poisonous Soul, I’m realizing that this is nearing the end to the first half of this series and I’m actually kind of sad. Of course, it’s only the first half, but this is my first series and kind of my baby in a way. I don’t know, I guess I’m getting nostalgic and seeing that it’s actually getting finished is crazy! I mean, I didn’t even think I would ever share my writing with anyone, let alone all 1,000 something of you all.
I guess I just wanted to let you all know that I love you and couldn’t do this without all of your love and support. You guys mean the absolute world to me and I can’t imagine not being apart of this family.
breathe. you’ve made it so far this year. you’ve gotten through so many things that you thought you wouldn’t, and you’ll continue to get though this, whatever it is. i know you can. i believe in you, and i’m so, so proud of you. i know it probably seems impossible, but it’s going to be ok. it’s going to be ok.
breathe in, breath out. and just keep breathing. we’re gonna get there.
Everybody is talking about the Mike/Eleven relationship this season (and not without good reason) BUT I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE AREN’T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THE GLORIOUSNESS THAT IS THE MIKE AND WILL FRIENDSHIP.
Just a few examples of this goodness:
Mike literally refusing to leave Will’s side pretty much from the moment he got infected by the shadow monster until the final episode.
Mike sleeping in a hospital chair next to Will’s bed at the lab
Will confiding in Mike about all the shadow monster episodes
“I’ll take care of him. Let me take him home.” (on halloween night)
Mike instinctually trusting Will about Dart being the demogorgon no questions asked
“If we’re both going crazy then I guess we’ll go crazy together.”
When Will had forgotten a lot of things because of the virus, but he hadn’t forgotten Mike
Mike trying to phone Will throughout the school day when Will didn’t show up to school
Joyce trying to send Mike home when Will’s infected and Mike is just not having ANY of that bullshit
The only time we see Will’s facial expression change when he’s under the control of the shadow monster is when a single tear rolls down his face after Mike has finished telling the story of the day they met
Oh no Will’s in trouble! *first thing we see is a camera pan to Mike’s worried face*
Oh so when Will wakes up in the disguised shack of course Hopper will be there in case something goes wrong. Joyce and Jonathan obviously, because family. Oh and Mike Wheeler, despite the fact that the rest of their gang of friends remained in the house.
are you telling me that mike and will are like family because i am not emotionally ready to deal with that
When they’re all telling stories to get Will to snap out of it and Will’s own mother and brother have told heart-wrenching emotional stories and nothing’s come of it and the thing that finally gets Will to fight back and start replying in morse code is Mike telling Will about the day they met
Basically my emotions went everywhere when Mike was talking about the day that he became friends with Will
“It was the best thing that I’ve ever done.”
You can go on and on about any of the other relationships between characters. But you cannot deny that the friendship between Mike and Will is literally the purest thing to ever exist on television.
To conclude, why are people not talking more about this beautiful example of everything good about the world that is Will Byers and Mike Wheeler’s friendship
