Q: I’ve been completely obsessed with Jun this comeback, but at the same time I feel like he’s the soft submissive [easy to push down] type. I’d like to ask, how can I capture his heart? ps: I’d like to tell him that his singing voice is really good, his dance is also amazing, please have more confidence in the future! pps: Wishing him an early happy birthday!
J: Then you should come over and push me down haha~~
I’m seeing a lot of people saying ‘I hated lars initially, he was an asshole! he was created as an antagonist!’ like I understand that he has been mean but I never really saw him as an antagonist? He wasn’t very nice but also wasn’t mean for the sake of being mean, instead I think a lot of his issues stemmed from his own insecurities, which we kinda saw from the beginning. His feelings for Sadie, his attitude towards the cool kids, and his treatment towards Steven all really centered around the fact that he didn’t think they could actually care about him and like him the way he was, hence him pushing people away and defending himself.
It even became literal with him running away to hide instead of helping Sadie, because he has never been able to put himself at risk like that. And sure, it wasn’t really nice or fun, but it felt really…honest? While Sadie and the cool kids are all great and fun characters that are pretty different from how teenagers usually are portrayed, I think Lars has been a really strong contrast from that. The cool kids are so sure of themselves, which is why they’re so good at lifting up people around them and expressing themselves. No matter what Steven and Sadie and the cool kids say or do, Lars couldn’t really act the same way until HE confronted his feelings and learned to move past them and grow.
Turning pink could honestly be a physical representation of that growth, because it was Steven’s fear and choices that finally allowed him to express himself. So I don’t think Lars was ever a villain, and while he wasn’t as nice and fun as the other young people in Beach City, I think it still made sense and didn’t necessarily make his character unlikeable. He has just been a scared teenager who is too insecure about himself to see that those around him aren’t perfect and don’t judge him for his imperfections, and once Steven made him listen and understand that, he could finally learn to be brave and risk himself for the people he cares about, because now he knows they won’t turn on him.
I see a lot of people saying this was his redemption arc, but I disagree. I don’t think he needed a redemption arc, because he didn’t need to be redeemed, he just needed to grow and learn to love himself so he could love the people around him too.
He came to the conclusion that waiting was the biggest waste one could do with his life.
And he had wasted a lot of his life already. Waiting.
He had waited for his father to acknowledge him, to show him he was proud of his son.
He had waited for his mother to stand up to his father, whenever he had talked her down, whenever he had treated her like less than his wife.
He had waited for his friends to come to his rescue when he had needed them most, to save him from himself.
And he had waited for the stupid prat to notice him. Really notice him. To look beyond the petty insults and his sneering.
For years Draco had been waiting.
He had waited in vain. But not anymore.
Draco was sick of waiting.
What had he even waited for? For him to come to the right conclusion, when Draco hid his true intentions so well? For him to realise what was really going on?
He probably would have to wait forever.
No. He would have to take matters into his own hands. And whyever should he not?
Yes, it was time to act.
Draco focused on the mop of black hair across the Great Hall.
He was sick of waiting.
He got up, marched over to the Gryffindor table and grabbed Potter by his robes. Without waiting for his reaction, Draco started dragging him out of his seat.
There was a yelp and shouts of protest, but Draco didn’t care.
He was so sick of waiting.
“Malfoy, what are you doing?” Potter shouted, shoving at Draco’s hands.
Draco ignored him and dragged him out of the Great Hall.
He could hear Weasley and Granger shout something at him. He heard footsteps behind him, indicating that several people were following him. Potter was still trying to get out of his grip.
Draco had wanted to find a more secluded place to do what he wanted to do next, but when the shouts behind him only got louder, he turned around and glared at them.
“You want to watch? FINE! I don’t even care anymore!”
He tightened his grip on Potter’s robes as he pulled him towards him forcefully.
Because he was so tired of waiting.
His mouth crashed with Potter’s and suddenly everything went silent.
Draco had thought it would be rougher, that Potter would try to fight him more. Apparently he was just shocked. He stiffened as Draco moved his lips against the other boy’s. He buried his hands in his hair like he had dreamed of so many times.
He had waited for this so long. This was it.
Or was it?
Draco suddenly noticed Potter moving and braced himself to be pushed away at any second. Instead, tentative fingers curled around his hips to pull him closer.
Draco was sure there were gasps and murmuring, but he didn’t hear any of it.
His whole mind, his whole body was so consumed by Potter. Potter, who was kissing him back.
Yes. This was what he had been waiting for all this time.
I know it’s too early to jump to conclusions but it feels really wrong that climon gets so much intimacy and both sweet and hot scenes. And I’m not even there for hot sexy malec scenes but it’s just not right that we get only romantic little things (well, still not enough) and a blackout for malec but all kinds of moments for a straight couple that fans are not even interested in
