Louis was about to reassure Harry further when Gemma bounded back over to him, slipping a hand around Louis’ waist. Harry’s eyes followed the movement. And then that lip gnaw again. Christ. How was he supposed to survive this weekend?
He turned his attention to Gemma as her palm came to rest right above his heart. Laying it on a bit thick, dear. Or at least that’s what he hoped he’d conveyed with the simple tilt of an eyebrow.
In response, she went up on tiptoes and laid a noisy kiss on the hollow beneath his cheekbone. Louis didn’t take his eyes off Harry, who watched the scene play out with a blank expression. Once Gemma dropped back to the ground, Harry shifted away from them, his gaze dropping to his feet.
[Or the one where Louis pretends to be Gemma’s boyfriend for her horrid cousin’s wedding but fate is a nasty jerk and throws Harry in his way.]
okay so I think that this season what people are going to learn most is going to be how to communicate and I just wanted to share my thoughts.
Let’s start with Sana, as she’s the main… Sana isn’t communicating her feelings and thoughts to the people around her:
- She doesn’t tell the girl squad (and specifically Vilde) that the things they do are bothering her / plain out micro-aggressions. Because of her silence the girls think that their behavior isn’t problematic, so Sana’s borders aren’t clear, which leads to misunderstandings.
- Sana doesn’t tell Noora about her crush on Yousef and instead lies and deflects Noora’s attempts to learn more about about Yousef, etc. Sana not communicating about her crush is already creating misunderstandings and creates situations where the girl squad acts in a way that is (unintentionally) hurtful to their friend.
- my theory that Sana is going to distance herself from Yousef now instead of possibly talking about it with him which once again will cause misunderstandings because Yousef is going to notice and connect her taking distance with what he said and think she’s not interested anymore while that might not be true at all.
Sana is such a closed off person and because she doesn’t communicate that is influencing everyone around her which is also something we see in the trailer with the chain reaction.
Then there’s Noora who isn’t communicating about what happened in London. She’s avoiding the topic and although it’s clear something happened she’s just talking about it and instead keeps it in. Her friends don’t have all the information and again this can leads to misunderstandings.
Opposite to that you have her friends knowing Dickhelm has a girlfriend, while Noora is going on and on about how they are going to be end game. The girl squad not telling her friend, because they’re afraid of hurting her is already influencing their friend who probably would have an easier time moving on if she had all the information.
Vilde doesn’t communicate either, not about what matters anyway. She keeps saying her mom is doing wine tastings etc and now Sana called her out on that it’s clear there’s more behind it than we might have original thought. But again Vilde isn’t communicating and instead overcompensating about other parts of her life like her relationship with Magnus.
And now, with Sana calling her out on stuff it’s obvious something is brewing between them. But, instead of communicating and talking through their feelings both girls are being passive aggressive towards each other. This is going to blow up soon.
And then…. Even not communicating with Isak which can also lead to misunderstandings because Isak knows there’s something bad. Don’t get me wrong, I think Even has every right not to tell Isak, but the fact he’s not sharing it and Isak has figured out there’s a connection between Sana and Mikael is making it grow in Isak’s head. Like I’m pretty sure that by now a thousand different scenarios have gone through that boys head. And because of that he might misunderstand Even and the situation. And that can hurt Even in the end too, even with Isak by his side.
In many ways Even and Sana are very much the same, but most notably they share the same trait of having difficulty communicating what’s going on in their heads with the people who love them. They’re both scared of people judging them in one way or another and we’re seeing this play out on screen pretty well already.
All of this ties back to the song in the trailer: so many misunderstanding are forming/have formed already and it’s all because they’re not communicating with each other, which would help all of them so so much.
I love that it’s canon that both Victor & Yuuri get jealous for each other. Yuuri got jealous when Victor was giving Chris more attention, and Victor got jealous when he mistook Yuuri for comparing him to an ex-lover called Chihoko.
