Today was one of the most unexpected and crucial days for John Murphy’s character development in all of The 100
John Murphy- who has been beaten, outcasted and left for dead by his own people, who once only knew how to survive for himself first and foremost, who was once near suicide when he realized he had no one left, who once thought he was worthless and unlovable, who shut out the world that was always cruel to him- just admitted that he loved someone
He just did that
John Murphy has found a reason to live, a purpose to his survival, someone to share life’s pain with and make it all bearable. He found someone that he’s willing to protect at any cost- and when her life is threatened, he’ll make it known
John Murphy is screaming to the world that he’s in love with Emori, and that he’s more proud of her than he ever could be in himself.
From a selfish, murdering psychopath to a selfless man in love.
This moment was so brief and rather pushed aside next to everything else that happened tonight, but this one line was so beyond important that I refuse to let it be lost in translation. I can’t wait for the day they are truly able to say “I love you” face to face. I cannot wait
burr is back in new york, it’s the end of the war and he was sent home for a medical reason. he has been waiting anxiously for the end to war, to be finally reunited with laurens. just reading his letter aren’t enough anymore, he’s longing for john’s warm touch.
he receives a letter and eagerly opens it, thinking its from laurens.
burr reads that john laurens has died heroically in the war. he just c r u m b l e s. the letter falls from his hand and sobs wrack his body. he has always been so reckless and the one time it counted for him to be safe, he’s gone and burr can’t take it

~ used to love the ocean as a child, but bc of a bad experience, as in he almost drowned, he was terrified since
~ was taken out to the beach at high tide when he was seventeen by a friend and like nobody was on the beach and that friend somehow helped him through his fear and now he fucking loves the ocean and like whenever he’s staying at a place near the ocean, he just goes out on long walks on the shore in the evening and just literally stands there, staring out to the horizon

BURRENS!! but like burr is very dedicated to his studies and John's off smoking weed with Alex and eating a shit ton of taco bell, and only finishes hw at the last minute, while Burr is tight laced and he blames alex, (but also thanks him because John drops in his room ready to cuddle and sleep after an all night)
Burr has to coax John to study like with a blow job or strip tease. John has to convince Burr to lighten up and live a little with him. Inviting him to Taco Bell at 3 a.m.
