I love that the Ranger’s Apprentice fandom can disagree with each other and dislike certain characters but the minute someone mentions Gilan the whole fandom just nods in appreciation because Gilan is an angel and everyone loves Gilan.
Gilan is the fabulous one who bursts into melodramatic song whenever something goes wrong. Imagine him sitting in some tree hopelessly crooning about angst because Blaze is paying attention to Jenny instead of him. Will and Horace do these kickass duets while fighting enemies side by side. Crowley and Kind Duncan rap battle. Evanlyn can;t sing but she breakdances in the background and ends up in a dance-off with Alyss, who’s the graceful ballroom style against Evanlyn’s modern moves, and they complement each other so well that they do an epic piece together. And the Skandians belt out this sea chanty and it turns out Erak has the voice of an angel.
And the whole time Halt is just sitting there rolling his eyes at them all.
