Do you think Rachel and Max would get along?
i believe if they were to initiate a friendship a lot of it would be based off peer pressure (max doing things she doesn’t want to do), clashing opinions (rachel puts herself first at times whereas max is very much an empath. i can see arguments rising over this.) and the inability to comprehend each other’s views. (at least from rachel’s part.. max is more understanding of other people.)
moreover, rachel is very direct and doesn’t beat around the bush (a lovely trait to have) and max is quite calculated in everything she does so i could imagine there being lots of awkward silences and ‘ah, right…..” moments.
i have more reasons but the ones i’ve just mentioned are things i thought about thoroughly. in the past year i really wanted to make a platonic relationship work with someone who was very much like max and i (being the rachel of the bunch) kind of wanted things to progress quicker. (she wanted to think more about it which didn’t make sense to me at the time) …and not to mention our humor was very different so it uh.. was awkward and just overall a weird dynamic that was inevitably going to end?
chloe isn’t enough to make the two girls get along, i don’t think.
but that’s just my opinion and anyone can disagree with me. for real. 🐳
