Having dissociative amnesia is so weird because it’s not like normal forgetting where you’re kind of like “I think this happened but I don’t know the details”, it’s looking back at a period of your life and seeing absolutely nothing. There is nothing TO remember, it’s just like a big black pit where your childhood should be.
So you know how when you’re watching a fictional show or movie that includes supernatural characters or elements like stranger things, the vampire diaries, supernatural, etc… there’ll be moments when you’re so frustrated that no one believes what the characters are saying and then you’ll remember that you probably wouldn’t believe the characters either in that situation. But what if you didn’t know that the supernatural exists in that universe the show/movie is taking place in?
Just imagine watching a show expecting it to be a typical drama that takes place in a realistic universe but there’s always this one character who might be the social outcast everyone ignores, or just some random neighbour that you see a few times, not enough to really affect the plot but little do you and the rest of the main characters know this character is about to be one of the most influential characters in the show/movie.
Try to imagine Stranger Things focused on the angst and the drama taking place in the town like Nancys dealing with choosing between her best friend or her boyfriend and occasionally shows Nancys nerdy brother who always acts like he’s hiding something and Joyce, the crazy grieving mother who everyone talks about because she believes she can talk to her son through lights.
Or try to imagine the vampire diaries but it’ll seem like a typical high school drama with Elenas love triangle and best friend drama until she realizes wayyy later on in the season that the brothers are vampires and all the strange stuff going on around town has been connected to them and her all along and the audience would have never seen it coming
I want a show with typical high school drama and romance and heart break and all of a sudden slightly strange things start going on and it all leads up to the main characters finding out it’s all connected to the strange kid who sits in the back of the classroom by themselves and doesn’t have many friends and it actually a fucking monster hunter
JUST FUCKING IMAGINE an episode of a show like Switched At Birth or The Fosters or Degrassi and all of a sudden Sam and Dean show up like “we have reason to believe you’re in danger, get in the impala” and they tell the main character they’re from a line of vampire hunters and supernatural creatures are out for them.
There are literally so many characters in 11 Little Roosters but it just so happens that Michael and Gavins characters are paired up the entire time?!?! Like RT wants me DEAD!?!? Also Gavin calling Michael “Mikey” gives me LIFE!!!!
