friendly reminder that the li's in the freshman are good people
this is chris powell we’re talking about here. the guy who purposefully told the entire school about his criminal record because he thought it was the honest thing to do. the guy who auditioned for the lead of a play with his girlfriend, and when he didn’t get the lead still super loved his part and played it with charisma to support his girlfriend and his friend. this guy is a good guy.
bad boy? yes, that’s the trope we have to deal with. the guy who risks everything he has to protect the people he cares about. who protected our main character when sebastian outright threatened her. this guy is a good guy.
ok james won my forgiveness back in the last chapter, mainly because he apologized but also because I understand that sometimes you just have to write something when it’s on your mind. this is the same guy that got to know the english professor that everybody else thought to be a cranky old man. the same guy that tried for years to please his parents despite knowing he was meant to be an english major. this guy is a good guy.
i’m not exactly a kaitlyn fan, mainly because she’s problematic in so many ways, but i will acknowledge she has good qualities. this is the same girl who gave up being part of a sorority that she so clearly wanted to be a part of because her two friends didn’t get accepted. this is the same girl who made a point to get to know the main character immediately after they met so that our mc was definitely going to have a friend at school. this girl is a good girl.
people make mistakes, and they always will. i love that this book series shows that. sure, i’m pissed, but i’ve realized that everybody’s being super hard on them when all they’ve done is be overprotective(in zig’s case) and have a little less time for mc. sure, the fights have been crappy but who’s going to read a romance book if the relationship is absolutely perfect??
