Round of applause for Malia Freaking Tate for being mature enough and such an amazing friend/person that she flat out admitted that Lydia is more important to Stiles than she is even after painfully remembering how much Stiles meant to her. Her character development is so incredible. Malia you are an angel too.
“You must know… surely, you must know it was all for you. You are too generous to trifle with me. I believe you spoke with my aunt last night, and it has taught me to hope as I’d scarcely allowed myself before. If your feelings are still what they were last April, tell me so at once. My affections and wishes have not changed, but one word from you will silence me forever. If, however, your feelings have changed, I will have to tell you: you have bewitched me, body and soul, and I love, I love, I love you. I never wish to be parted from you from this day on”
i rewatched the episode again and now that i wasn’t so focused on alex in the last sanvers scene, i really noticed how gentle maggie was? like this is….. the softest goddamn rejection i have ever seen with my own two eyes,,, she’s doing what she thinks is best for both of them (and ultimately i think she’s right, the timing isn’t good for them just yet), but she knows it’s gonna hurt alex and she’s just so thoughtful? making sure to say that alex didn’t do anything wrong and making sure to tell her that she’s still there for her, just as a friend. maggie sawyer is such a wonderful and beautiful and caring person, i’m bawling my eyes out
what she means:
jaehee kang lost her father at a very young age and her mother died in a car crash when she was only in ninth grade so she went to live with her uncle and aunt who didn't love her at all nor did they even try to conceal the fact that they considered her a burden but she still managed to get a scholarship to an amazing university and graduate early because she's so strong and intelligent and independent but that also means that she has no one else and she's so busy from constant working that she has no time to calm down and be herself and destress but she desperately needs time to unwind and relax i mean you can practically hear the relief and gratitude and love she sends through her messages when MC is kind to her or puts her first or vouches for her even when she doesn't know she deserves it because she always pushes her own needs away in lieu of everyone else's and she always feels so much better after talking her problems out but isn't that what everyone needs and takes for granted because it seems like such a simple thing to have a friend but jaehee's so busy working her life away for other people that she has absolutely no time to even smile or laugh or vent or make friends and be happy for herself especially because her goddamn boss thinks that money constitutes happiness and never gives her a break both literally and figuratively and even though she works so hard and that's what she's always acclaimed for it's not what she wants people to see because all she really wants to be is considerate and kind-hearted and she truly is but it's been so deeply buried under labels like 'diligent' and 'organized' and 'capable' and 'thorough' that she's starting to forget who she really is and what she cares about and that she is a sweet, kind, loving person with a heart of gold who always puts everyone else before her and deserves the world and more and i intend to fucking give that to her if it ruins my life and kills me
