so me and daf, @josteninski, have been talking all day long about our hopes for series 4 or 5 being about even, and one of the points raised was about the “mandatory 10% attendance” that’s been addressed on skam, that you need to have.
now, i think i’m pretty certain in saying that … i feel like even’s for sure gone above his 10% limit - even his 15%, as isak said, if the principal is nice to you and likes you. so does this mean that even doesn’t graduate this year then?
so if he doesn’t graduate this year, does this mean that he’ll have to redo his final year again, but with the current 2nd years this time, so that when he does graduate, he’ll be graduating with the current 2nd years? so with isak, and the entire squad?
/if/ that is the case, then, me and daf were saying how it would be pretty awesome, if say, series 4 wasn’t about even, but someone else, and how even would then get a whole series to develop on the side, forming and cementing some solid friendships, so that he /COULD/ potentially lead series 5 - the start of his final year that he’s had to redo twice before. but, 3rd time lucky, maybe?
also, there’s something that’s been on my mind. i may be OVER OVER reaching here - i probably am, tbh, but i need to get this off my chest - the 10% drugs sana gave back to isak last night, and how when even took them, isak snatched them away straight away, saying they’re not good for him. after analysing that, what i realised was, that this could also be said for even’s attendance this year - his attendance this year in school hasn’t been good, for obvious and valid reasons.
even then goes onto say, that “neither is it good for you”, which was true when isak said to kollektivet that his attendence was already bad, and he couldn’t fuck up even more, to which isak said “no, it’s fine for me”, and i’m assuming isak’s attendance is okay, that he’s still not messed up majorly to the point where it’s undoable.
and then they talk about how isak basically “is taking care of even”, and in some way, i feel like, if even did have to redo his final year again, then … maybe this time, he WILL graduate with the current 2nd years, because this time, he’ll have isak and all the squad as his friends, he won’t be alone. he’ll have a proper support system that will be there for him if he does stumble. but that in the end, he will graduate.
so based off that, series 5 being even’s would be IDEAL. series 4 would be great too, but series 5 would be prime for him then. because there, even will know that he /has/ to graduate now, and showing him face his struggles head on as he manages to make sure he does, is something that i think will be SO IMPORTANT to show. to show how mental illness can affect your education (because it did with mine, but also, it does, with several people) but how ultimately, it cannot control it, if you have the right network and support system with you. but also, its to see how even’s life is outside of isak, as a friend, a son, a student. a series dedicated to even would be so important to show him as so much more than just his relationship with isak, and to see how he navigates through life and finally does graduate.
