it's pretty though isn't it

One of the four postcard designs I’m doing for shatterdomeseattle! (An additional four to be done by geniusbee.) The postcards were available through the Indiegogo that was run last year, and I imagine they’ll also be available at the con itself on May 3rd. So go to the shatterdomeseattle page and get up to Seattle. :3

I had to make one of them coffee related, and given that I usually always draw Newt, I decided to go with Mako instead.

The whole thing about Jack and Kent’s relationship really reminds me of high school. Like you’ve got a bunch of young kids who aren’t quite adults yet and are trying to act like it and are also in a relationship and are trying to figure stuff out without having anyone they can go to for help. And I knew a lot of kids who dated for the entirety of high school and then broke it off for college. They did this for a variety of reasons, didn’t want to date anymore, wanted new experiences, didn’t want to do long distance, etc. And then there are the relationships which last the summer before and fall apart during the first semester of college for a lot of reasons similar to the ones I listed above.

What this has to do with Jack and Kent. If you imagine an au where Jack and Kent are vying for a spot in some top ranked Ivy or whatever for college. And Jack assumes that they’ll spend the summer together and then have an amicable break up and go their separate ways to their separate Ivys. Except I don’t think he told Kent that. Kent just from what it seems expected them to keep on going. And instead of having a discussion about their expectations for the relationship or even just breaking up, instead Jack has a mental breakdown right before they were set to head off to school and instead takes a gap year and then heads to a tiny liberal arts college before meeting up with Kent again at grad school. Kent in the mean time not only had his boyfriend break up with him via mental breakdown and silence, not text, not a phone call, we don’t even know if he got a we’re done from Jack and he certainly didn’t get any closure or ability to argue his point or ask why, but he also has to go to his fancy ass school with his prestigious major and make new friends while also pretending to be totally okay™. And maybe he found a good group of friends who are willing to help him and support him. But maybe he didn’t. Because Kent is smart and hardworking and good at what he’s majoring in and it’s not like he has a boyfriend or any friends to take up his time. Instead he just has classmates who are sort of friendly but he spends all his time studying and getting good grades and I can see that making his peers mad at him and envious of him more than I can see it endearing him to them. At least he has the emotional support cat he found behind his dorm junior year and jumped through so many hoops to keep. So yeah, Kent might have a support network but even if he doesn’t the way Jack broke it off is harsh and leaves lasting scars. And it doesn’t help that there has been literally no contact between the two of them. So like literally the first time he hears about Jack joining him at grad school where he’s already been for several years and is doing good he’s torn up. Because some part of him wants back what he and Jack had and another part wants an explanation and a third part just wants Jack to hurt the same way he hurt. Now imagine the first time they share a class or interact. Maybe Kent is TAing one of Jack’s classes. It’s one thing to be okay in theory and another to be okay in fact. And I think that Kent might think he’s in a good place, but then in comes Jack obviously happy and content with his life and Kent has everything that they wanted when they were kids and going out and he can’t understand how Jack is so much happier than he is. And even if he is happy where he is, how dare Jack not want the same things anymore. When you leave/lose someone as abruptly as Kent must have lost Jack, they tend to freeze in time. They stop being a person and start being an image in your head. So I’m not surprised that Kent has trouble accepting that Jack has changed.

It’s hard to enjoy getting older when I can see my parents getting older too cause I miss going on hikes and exploring with my dad but now all that stuff is getting too difficult for him and I guess what I wanna say is you should really appreciate the time you have with your family while you have it, if you’ve got a good one that is
