lord of the flies 1963

Can we just talk about jalph

Jack Merridew and Ralph from Lord of the Flies who

“Smiled at each other with shy liking” 

The first time they met

And even when Jack was bossing everyone else about right from the start, he and Ralph worked together

Ralph found himself alone on a limb with Jack and they grinned at each other, sharing this burden […]
‘Almost too heavy.’
Jack grinned back, 
‘Not for the two of us.’”

Jack and Ralph who act in a flirty way around one another without even trying

His grey shorts were sticking to him with sweat. Ralph glanced at them admiringly, and when Jack saw his glance he explained.”

Jack and Ralph who even though their leadership ends up in conflict, turned to each other before anyone

Ralph and Jack looked at each other while society paused about them. The shameful knowledge grew in them and they did not know how to begin confession.”

Jack and Ralph who act like a married couple taking care of children. Jack’s out hunting and when he returns Ralph is hurt at being left alone. 

D’you see? All day I’ve been working with Simon. No one else.”

Jack who gets jealous that Ralph looks out for Piggy, 

That’s right -  favour Piggy as you always do-”

Jack and Ralph who through everything, even when Jack leaves and when he succumbs to savagery, always have something between them that never becomes malice.

They looked at each other, baffled, in love and hate. All the warm salt water of the bathing-pool and the shouting and splashing and laughing were only just sufficient to bring them together again.”

ok, I cannot get over how touchy-feely Tom and James were with each other and how they were in each other’s faces all the time and looked and smiled at each other (not to mention that scene with tom over james at the beach), and I get  that, in those times, not everything was as sexualized and that children and youngsters were more comfortable with touching each other like that, but it’s not like Tom and James were that young, from what I’ve got they were around 15 (Tom was even 16), so I’m thinking that maybe it’s possible for the boys to have had some sort of crushes on each other and not realize it (after all, in those times, homo and bisexuality were way too repressed and shunned by the society), I mean they played the Jack-Ralph tension way too good, almost like they were lovers at times

I don’t know, maybe it’s just me, maybe not, but it’s undeniable that they had a really good chemistry

I just love the fact that all three actors for jack, roger and simon had major things in common with their characters

  • tom (jack) was hired because he had the attitude and arrogance of jack and had a really similar personality with the actual character
  • roger (roger - lol) started killing all the lizards on the island by throwing them into fans and fire
  • tom (simon) actually became a forester when growing up
