Literally fandom discourse largely just comes down to kids taking shit too seriously. It isn’t that deep. It really isn’t that deep. Fandoms aren’t that serious. Stop talking it so seriously. Stop putting so much negative energy into something that literally isn’t even real or that serious. Fandoms are fandoms they’re there purely for enjoyment. Just enjoy what you enjoy, avoid what you don’t, and let others do the same. Stop taking fandoms so seriously it literally isn’t that deep and was never meant to be. Lighten the fuck up kids, life will be so much nicer for you if you do.
Might I just point out that this is one of the only times in the movie when Peter is visibly angry. He cares so, so much about May. The slightest idea of anyone, even Ned, his best friend and the person he probably trusts the most, giving May more grief, and he immediately drew the line. And he still was able to be respectful about it afterward. He thanked Ned for holding his secret. He thanked him. He realized the burden. WHAT A KID. SERIOUSLY.
*starts with the scene about mike having to kill that lamb*
oh my god is mike going to be our main character? this makes so much more sense since the old version had him writing all their adventures down. oh this is such a smart decision for the character and itll offer a cool perspective this is so much better than the old one
*gives all of mikes important contributions to ben*
*doesnt introduce mike to the group for forever*
*excludes mike from the finale because of henry bowers*
There’s a huge line between joking around with your kid, and straight up being cruel then falling back on “that was sarcasm dear” “I’m just kidding” “why do you always take everything so seriously”
Somehow people seem to think that line is easy to cross unintentionally but it isn’t. You don’t say cruel shit accidentally, routinely. You don’t joke about your child’s insecurities then get to say they can’t take a joke.
