You know I have to ask Poe for that character ask? But if its too obvious/you've already done it, then Shao or Mylene
As for Shao and Mylene, I love them both so I will do both
said Zeke Figuero probably I mean whaaaaat….
Shaolin Fantastic, Noted Heterosexual™
- Why I like them: He’s a tiny bird nerd orphan child who just NEEDS TO BE LOVED. Someone give the poor kid a hug, jesus christ. And he’s putting himself out there as this badass who Does Not Care but he cares so much – he looks at Zeke and he sees not just this kid who can do something for him, but just this basically decent guy in love & he HELPS HIM OUT when he didn’t really have to and he gets all soft & gentle sometimes (lol around Zeke, mostly) but he also has a good relationship with the rest of the Kipling brothers because HE’S SO LONELY, YOU GUYS. He’s a poor lonely child who keeps pigeons. Someone help him.
- Why I don’t: I mean he’s not great about women, is he? He’s got his reasons, obviously, but– yeah, he could stand to be less of a douchebag to Mylene, for instance. I mean there’s That Boy Is Mine but there’s also being a misogynist dick and…maybe back up from that line there, Shao.
- Favorite episode (scene if movie):
I MEAN. The giggles. The snuggling right up in there. The play-biting. Shao what the fuck. What the fuck.
- Favorite season/movie: I’mma do favorite episode: the last one, just for the final DJ battle, and the prep before it. Just such AWESOME SCENES and such great back and forth between Shao and everyone: him and Ra, him and MYLENE, even. Love it. I MEAN, THIS IS EPIC:
- Favorite line:
IT’S JUST SO EARNEST & HONEST & POETIC & ADMIRING.
- Favorite outfit: Oh man in general I love how committed he is to the red + white aesthetic, and the red jackets in general are gr9 (but especially the one he wears for the final dj battle, where HE AND THE REST OF THE BROTHERS ARE ALL MATCHING OMG), but I like the red t-shirt from that rooftop scene above SO MUCH.
LOOK AT THEM!!!!
- Brotp: I mean i know Shao/Zeke won’t ACTUALLY HAPPEN like a romantic thing so I’m ok with it being a BROTP too. Like LET THEM BE FRIENDS FOREVER. Let them both live & keep collaborating & being happy & hugging. GIVE SHAO A HUG.
- Head Canon: I think before The Get Down Brothers, Shao had no one and nothing in his life he genuinely loved except for his pigeons; I mean he’s LOYAL to Grandmaster Flash and he works for Fat Annie etc etc, but he doesn’t care for anyone else for their own sake. EXCEPT FOR HIS PIGEONS. I mean it’s sad but also – he really loved those birds, right? And before Zeke he’d never introduced them to anyone. But he’d named them all and would tell them about his day and stuff.
- Unpopular opinion: I mean IDK if it’s popular or unpopular, but I just generally feel that while he IS 100% entirely in love with Zeke, he’ll never a) DO anything about it and b) even actually acknowledge it to himself.
- A wish: I JUST WANT HIM TO SURVIVE. And get a hug from someone nice & who loves him & wants to take care of him NO NOT YOU FAT ANNIE.
- An oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen: I’m honestly worried he’ll die or go to jail for the major contrast of Zeke going on and being ~famous and successful~. Like ~not everyone can make it~ kind of thing. It would bum me out.
- 5 words to best describe them: tiny, bird nerd, lonely, talented
- My nickname for them: Noted Heterosexual™
