a sweet lil michael jones and ryan haywood moment is when theyre racing or battling against each other, sometimes when they pass by the other they’ll cherrily say “hi ryan!” and “hi michael!” amidst all the sprunking and killing
i was thinking the other day ‘why is transboy bitty so much more popular than transboy jack?’ n i realised it’s probably bc of how small bitty is. like he’s not SMALL but jack is quite big in comparison n ppl, especially on tumblr, seem to see trans guys as these ‘smol precious beans uwu must protecc’ and bitty being the smaller n more “””feminine””” of the two probably makes it easier to see him as trans. which sucks.
tall trans guys exist!! buff trans guys exist!! traditionally masculine trans guys exist!!! JACK LAURENT ZIMMERMANN CAN BE TRANS!!!
Caitlin doesn’t get his number after Chris knocks her over into a pile of leaves. They make awkward conversation (“Are you ok?” “Yes.” “Are you sure you’re ok?” “Yes, I’m fine. Are you aight?” “Yeah, fine.” –and round and round again for five excruciating minutes).
By the end of them, Caitlin may or may not have a tiny, miniscule crush on Cute Hockey Boy.
She gets his number the next day, when she sees him at the gym. She’s heading for her usual elliptical when she notices Cute Hockey Boy stretched out in a split on the mats, forehead pressed to his right knee. She takes a deep breath to quell the fluttery feeling in her stomach. “Hi Chris!”
He jerks upright. “Hi! Caitlin, right?”
He’s just sitting there like chilling in a full split, legs turned out like a ballet dancer, is no big deal.
