Everybody is talking about the Mike/Eleven relationship this season (and not without good reason) BUT I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE AREN’T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THE GLORIOUSNESS THAT IS THE MIKE AND WILL FRIENDSHIP.
Just a few examples of this goodness:
Mike literally refusing to leave Will’s side pretty much from the moment he got infected by the shadow monster until the final episode.
Mike sleeping in a hospital chair next to Will’s bed at the lab
Will confiding in Mike about all the shadow monster episodes
“I’ll take care of him. Let me take him home.” (on halloween night)
Mike instinctually trusting Will about Dart being the demogorgon no questions asked
“If we’re both going crazy then I guess we’ll go crazy together.”
When Will had forgotten a lot of things because of the virus, but he hadn’t forgotten Mike
Mike trying to phone Will throughout the school day when Will didn’t show up to school
Joyce trying to send Mike home when Will’s infected and Mike is just not having ANY of that bullshit
The only time we see Will’s facial expression change when he’s under the control of the shadow monster is when a single tear rolls down his face after Mike has finished telling the story of the day they met
Oh no Will’s in trouble! *first thing we see is a camera pan to Mike’s worried face*
Oh so when Will wakes up in the disguised shack of course Hopper will be there in case something goes wrong. Joyce and Jonathan obviously, because family. Oh and Mike Wheeler, despite the fact that the rest of their gang of friends remained in the house.
are you telling me that mike and will are like family because i am not emotionally ready to deal with that
When they’re all telling stories to get Will to snap out of it and Will’s own mother and brother have told heart-wrenching emotional stories and nothing’s come of it and the thing that finally gets Will to fight back and start replying in morse code is Mike telling Will about the day they met
Basically my emotions went everywhere when Mike was talking about the day that he became friends with Will
“It was the best thing that I’ve ever done.”
You can go on and on about any of the other relationships between characters. But you cannot deny that the friendship between Mike and Will is literally the purest thing to ever exist on television.
To conclude, why are people not talking more about this beautiful example of everything good about the world that is Will Byers and Mike Wheeler’s friendship
ppl go on professor kukui’s pokemon world version of a facebook page expecting to see a bunch of pokemon research posts but instead it’s just filled w/ videos of his rockruff being cute and 5 million posts abt how much he loves his wife
can I request something where instead of keith that pilots the black lion after shiro's disappearance, it's shiro's s/o that's chosen?
keith: [wipping sweat away from his forehead]: “oh thank the universe”
the only person left on the ship who hasn’t tried out piloting the black lion is you
everyone is confused™
Lance: “wait, we’re letting Shiro’s partner pilot the black lion? Wha- hey, do you know how to drive anything?”
you’re a little worried about it activiating because you’ve never helped beyond the castle ship
when you step inside the lion and you sit down, you hesistate
Lance: “okay, someone has to check on Shiro’s partner, this is a little too long.”
no one does though, and they wait because you are their only hope
when you place your hand on the controls you feel a slight tinge spreading from your fingertips and suddenly everything is purple. the controls have come to life and are activated
the lion then slowly gets up and then from the screen, you can see all their shocked faces
when you come out, Keith is looking a little reliefed (but he still has a pained expression), Lance looks a little dejected and Pidge and Hunk just look glad they found someone to pilot the black lion
Allura congragulates you with a smile, but you can see how she’s dissapointed that the black lion didn’t react to her
Coran is just stroking his mustache in thought
Coran: “could it be that the bond between you and Shiro is so strong that the black lion has somehow connected to you?”
Pidge: “sweet peanuts! that makes sense!” [Pidge is busy]
Lance walks up to you and places a hand on your shoulder and gives you a small smile
Lance: “Shiro will be proud of you”
Keith [at the corner]: “Shiro has good taste”
you’re a little excited because, hey! it’s the black lion and you’re a paladin
first mission, however, things go messy and you didn’t know how to control the black lion
you [fumbling with the controls]: what the heck does this do?
but you calm yourself after a while after getting help from all of them, and you think to yourself: “what would Shiro do?”
[like the Lion King where the dad appears amoung the clouds] Shiro: *appears amoung the stars* “wreck them”
things didn’t go correctly, but it did went rather smoothly for your first time
your motto: WWSD (what would Shiro do)
but honestly, every night, you think where the frick is Shiro
cue crying in black lion on those nights and you just hug whatever you can that reminds you of Shiro
of course, you start to mix your ways of leading and Shiro’s ways of leading to create a new type of leading. who knew, you’re a natural leader. everyone is actually, if they had to chance to properly show it, and you had yours.
allura x shay: soft-hearted ‘the princess and the pauper’ gfs from different worlds but with the same selfless heroic spirit, everything is sweet words, cuddles, and allura being carried bridal style, and gazing up at the sky, picking flowers, holding hands and long distance gossip
allura x nyma: ‘rich sheltered girl meets abandoned girl from the streets’ gfs with very different world views, butting heads but admiring each other’s resilience and passion for life and falling for each other despite themselves, everything is never staying out of each other’s space despite claiming that they’ll ‘never get along!!’ until being forced to work together for a shared cause and confessing their romantic feelings when stakes get high
allura x shay x nyma: a medley of chaotic good (allura) meets lawful good (shay) meets chaotic neutral (nyma), a perfect system of lesbian checks and balances
I’M RESPONSIBLE FOR SO MUCH OF THIS DHFKJGDJHGDSGD
you are. i’ve only been able to keep this good of a track of everything bc i’ve literally been following since you first day you made your blog.
but that was only because i was trying to get the url klanced for myself but saw someone else already got it literally only hours before i did. like literally i scrolled down your blog and there was only three posts and it was “lol i can’t believe i got this url.” i was pissed. im still pissed. my rage is unending, katie klanced. but yknow, if you cant beat ‘em join ‘em. so then i followed you and was able to document your gradual spiral downwards in the internet shithole of the voltron fandom
