Modern Amis (and co.) Coming-Out Headcanons

(I don’t even remember how the subject came up but @beatlemaniacinthetardis and I were taking about the Amis getting together at someone’s house and telling each other stories from when they came out of the closet. We stayed up way too late last night coming up with these so we felt the need to share) 

Bahorel comes out to his family when he goes downstairs in the rainbowest of rainbow shirts, announces that he’s going to Pride, and just sort of stares at each of them until they understand.

Courfeyrac realizes he’s gay in his preteen years and it takes him like a year to work up the courage to come out to his friends (Enjolras and Combeferre) and family (mom and dad). When he tells them they all just go “sweetie, we know”. Enjolras and Combeferre bake him a confetti cake that says CONGRATS in edible glitter. Courfeyrac cries. 

Feuilly doesn’t really have anyone to come out to, since he has no living relations and he went straight into a job at a young age. He kind of…forgets to, to be honest, so he’s not out to his co-workers. They only find out when Bahorel comes to get him from work one day and he kisses Feuilly hello.  

Like in canon, Cosette grows up into a pretty girl who loves attention. She’s very meticulous about the way she looks and is like nice when she notices guys checking her out. One day, though, a pretty girl smiles at her and does the checking-out thing and Cosette is like oh no when she feels her heart do the THING. She tells papa later that evening, and he’s amazing and supportive because, well, he’s Jean Valjean. He joins her marching in the Pride parade the following summer. 

Enjolras’ coming out doesn’t go so well. He’s pretty much known he likes boys since forever ago, but only tells his parents at the end of high school. His parents are cold and arrange a Nice Girl for him to marry at the age of 25 or whatever. Enjolras fights with them on it, but when they continue to stand firm he decides they don’t deserve to be in his life anyway. He moves in with Combeferre, who he came out to years ago.

Joly and Bossuet, who have basically known each other since birth, come out to each other before anyone else. They then make a pact to come out to their friends and family on the same day. Bossuet’s parents don’t take it so well–his dad is pissed, and his mom tries to push him to go back to church. His friends, too, say “yeah that’s cool” but he can tell every time he says something that even approaches the subject of his sexuality that they’re weird about it. Joly’s, on the other hand, went well. His friends start teasing him like “yeah man I bet you thought you had appendicitis the first time you saw a guy you liked” and stuff, but they’re cool with it. Joly’s family ends up pretty much adopting Bossuet, too. Bossuet’s parents come knocking for him one day and Joly’s four younger siblings work together to slam the door in their face. (Bonus: since those two have a hivemind, they tell each other about being poly the same day.)

The subject of their combined affections, Musichetta, was a total badass about her coming out. She told her parents straight up that she was poly/pan. They were not sold on the idea, but she told them to accept her as she was or she’d leave without a second thought. It takes them a while to get used to the idea, but Chetta answers whatever questions they have. They grow to understand her, and come to love Joly and Bossuet once the three of them start dating.

Jehan has a hard time with it all. They WANT to come out, to family and friends alike, but they want to understand themselves before they try and explain it to anyone else. They tell this to the Amis who are all just like…you don’t have to ever figure it out. It’s alright. No matter who you are or what you do or who you love, we’ll be here to support you. Jehan cries really hard because they’ve been so confused for so long and their found family is saying that it’s okay to be unsure forever because who needs a title anyway? The greatest of group hugs happens that day, Jehan smiling in the centre of it. (Bonus: shortly after that, Jehan asks the Amis to start saying “they/them”. Grantaire buys a ton of neutral-looking clothes with gross flower print that he knows Jehan will LOVE. Enjolras falls in love with R a lil bit more since he knows he doesn’t have all that much money but he spent a bunch of it for Jehan to be happy and comfortable anyway).

Combeferre comes out to all his friends shortly after he meets them, but he never comes out to his family at all. He knows they’re homophobic, and a) he doesn’t like to start fights, and b) he decides that they don’t deserve to know. In an act of silent rebellion, he secretly gets a part-time job as a sales guy at a boot shop for drag queens. Courfeyrac’s the shop’s #1 customer. (Kinky Boots AU someone back me up here)

While Marius is almost entirely on the straight side, but every so often he’ll meet a man who sets his little Pontmercy heart aflutter. Courf is one of those guys and when they end up roommates Marius kind of…”aksdjasgkdhdh Lord save my poor bisexual soul”. But then he meets Cosette. He doesn’t tell her for ages because he’s terrified of what she’ll think, but eventually he works up the courage. She laughs because hey she’s bi too!! From that point on, they point out attractive people of various genders to each other while they’re on dates. (Bonus: one day, Marius and his grandfather get into an argument about politics over dinner. In a moment of passion, Marius stands and yells “LONG LIVE NAPOLEON! ALSO, I SOMETIMES LIKE BOYS!” His grandfather faints into his chair.)

Eponine never really had friends, so she has no frame of reference for what romantic attraction feels like. When she meets Marius, she figures instantly that what she’s feeling is romantic love. Shortly after, she meets Cosette and feels the same way. Now she’s confused. And then she meets the rest of the Amis and feels the same way about ALL of them. It’s very strange to have a crush on everyone, she thinks. With Grantaire and Jehan’s help, she comes to understand that what she’s feeling is, in fact, platonic love. And god, is she relieved to know. The only family members she tells about being aro/ace are Gavroche and Azelma. Azelma is like “I think that might be me too” and Gav is like “sweet, more lovely ladies for me”.

FINALLY, Grantaire. He’s never really given a shit about what gender his lovers were, and never given a shit about who knows about it. He doesn’t know or care whether or not his parents know. But oh, god, then he meets Enjolras, and can no longer imagine loving anyone else of any gender. When the Amis share their coming out stories, he just snorts and says ‘does it count if you’re only attracted to one person?’ and he accidentally stares at Enj as he says it and the Amis collectively suck in a breath because if they didn’t know who he was talking about before, they certainly do now.  (Bonus: Everyone braces themselves when Enj stands up and goes to R, thinking Enj is going to try and start shit, but they start applauding when instead Enjolras grabs Grantaire’s face and kisses the life out of him).

I sighed in annoyance, while attempting to get my boyfriend’s attention as he was too focused on the computer screen, writing his novel. 

“Juggie”, I plead again, rolling my eyes. tonight was the first night we’ve had alone in a long time, and I needed some relief as my heat throbbed for some sort of touch. 

“What?”, Jughead asks, annoyance in his voice and his eyes continued to stare the computer as his fast fingers typed. I get off the bed and walked over to Jughead, who was sat on the chair at his desk. I rubbed his shoulders, creeping them down his shirt, but all he did was shrug me away. I was not giving up and I straddled him on the chair. Finally, Jughead looked up at me, annoyance flickered in his eyes.

“Juggie, please”, I begged. 

“Not now. I’m too busy”

“You’ve been at it for 3 hours now”, A sigh once again escaped my lips. An idea sparked up in me. I know what’ll get him in the mood. My hips grounded into Juggie’s, and I inhaled a sharp breath. Jughead seemed to show no reaction - but an undefeated sighed fell from his lips, when I rocked my hips faster and when my fingers grasped his hair, tugging at it. 

“Y/n, I need to get b-back to this”, he moans, struggling to keep it in. “Fuck it”, he murmurs, hands grabbing onto my hips and guiding me as I continue to rock my hips at a fast pace. 

“Jug..”, I moan into his neck, softly biting it. He groans and bucks his hips it, causing me to moan loudly and throw my head back in intense pleasure. My fingers grasping on his hair tighter, as the knot in my stomach formed.

“Juggie”, A pleading moan slipped from my mouth.

“Let it go, baby”, he grunts. My breathing became rapid and I grinded harder and faster onto him, letting my heat gather up the last bit of pleasure before I came. Jughead came shortly after me, holding me as I panted into the crook of his neck.

“I should focus on you more often”, Jughead laughed, jokingly.

Annotating Effectively

Not to brag, but if there is anything I have mastered so far in my high school career, it is the art of annotating poetry and prose for close text analysis. This guide will focus primarily on close-text analysis, but will also touch on a full annotation of a larger piece. Basically, I will be giving you a few different techniques given to me by my English teacher, as well as a few that I have learned on my own! Enjoy!

{ Some of the names are weird because my english teacher is a hilarious person! }


  • What: Basically coondog is all about “sniffing out” motifs and symbols. So for example, when reading a series of poems, if you realize there is a lot of references to the ocean, go through from the beginning with a highlighter and highlight every single reference to the ocean you can find – whether it literally mentions something like “waves” or “fish”, or is far more subtle.
  • Why: Using coondog is extremely helpful, especially as writing about a motif is a great starting point for an essay or paragraph. If you are in the IB program, motifs are awesome for anything from an English extended essay to your unseen oral commentary. Remember, a motif can vary! Some examples of some I have seen commonly are: water, corporeal, animals, time of day, cosmic, textile, etc.
  • My English Teacher came up with the name (I think it comes from one of her crazy life stories haha)


  • Who: Who are the characters? What is the point of view?
  • What: What happened in the piece (paraphrase)?
  • Where: What is the setting? How does the setting effect the piece?
  • Why: Why did the author do _______?
  • When: When was the piece written?
  • How: How does the author create the feeling of ________?

Read Aloud Silently

  • What: This is basically just making sure you hear the piece in your head as you read it. This is extremely important while reading poetry.
  • Why: Reading aloud silently will you help you catch so many things you wouldn’t by just skimming through it. Things like internal rhyme, rhythm, onomatopoeia, tone, consonance/assonance, cacophony/euphony, etc. will all become more obvious. This also ensures that you don’t skim past a line or anything.
  • Even if you hate every single other tip I have given you, just use this one and you will benefit incredibly.


  • Title: Read the title before reading the piece. Is it an allusion? What does it connote? Does it reveal anything about the novel?
  • Irony: Look for irony and humour in the piece. Both are excellent to write about, so keep your brain peeled!
  • Paraphrase: After you finish reading everything, think about what literally happened in the piece. Do this before finding the ‘sub-text’.
  • Connotation: Time for sub-text! What is the piece saying indirectly? As in what is it trying to reveal other than the literal happenings of the work? Ladies and Gentlemen, it is time to read underneath the lines!
  • Atmosphere: Highlight anything that reveals the tone/atmosphere of the piece. Highlight any hints you find that make you think the story is shifting in one way or another.
  • Shift: Find any narrative shifts. This could be anything from a shift in tone, to a shift in point of view, to a shift in the characters feelings.
  • Title: Now that you have examined the piece, look back at the title and think about it’s relevance. Were you right when you looked at it the first time? Or did it reveal a hint about the ending?
  • Theme: Now it’s time to put it all together! What is underneath the piece? What is the author trying to convey? Remember the theme will often be something profound and important!


  • Beginning & End
  • Never skip your beginning and ending as I personally feel as if they are perhaps the most revealing sections. The beginning will set the tone and mood for the poem, while the end will ultimately reveal the theme. When examining the beginning and end, one way to comprehend what happened in the piece is to map out where it started, and where it finished, and fill out (with quotes) how the narrator/characters got there. This is most helpful with poetry or prose excerpts as novels would have wayyyyy to much going on in the middle.


  • Poetry has feelings. Yup. That’s a thing.
  • So, remember, atmosphere and tone are incredibly important. Write down how the poem makes you feel, how the poet might have felt when they were writing it, how the characters/speaker feels about the situation – any feeling word that comes to mind will be significant when you talk about the atmosphere of the overall poem! Plus it will give you a more thorough understanding of the premise :)

Handy Dandy Things to Watch For!

  • Bored of talking about Simile’s and Alliteration? Here are some other things (often a little more rare) that are almost always relevant when annotating poetry (and a lot of prose as well!)
  • Allusion: I promise you, there is almost always allusion in poetry. Biblical will probably be the most common allusion you see (in Western literature), and it is extremely easy and effective to talk about it. Allusion to mythology is also common, and is often used in order to show the universality (through space and time) of a specific theme.
  • Elevated/Archaic Language: Always keep an eye out for this, it is extremely
  • Parallel Structure/Anaphora: You can never go wrong with parallel structure and anaphora as they will exist often! It doesn’t have to be a perfect parallel structure, it always elevates and intensifies a piece of poetry or prose.
  • Structure: In poetry especially, sentence/stanza structure is extremely significant. Look at the length of each line? Is it short-long-short-long line structure for the first few stanzas and then all of a sudden just a rhyming couplet of two short lines? Mention this! Talk about why this might be. Also keep an eye out for the actual structure of the stanzas on the page! This is not on accident, poets often put thought into the way it will look printed out. Plus, if you are unsure, you can always say “perhaps” to keep yourself save. Remember rhythm, syntax, enjambment, and general structure are your friend!

My Method (close-text, small section) ~ This is how I annotate for unseen timed commentary’s (but it is effective for all annotation!)

  1. Read aloud silently.
  2. Write down the general tone/feeling I get from the piece.
  3. Read second time focusing on a possible theme.
  4. Underline any poignant/interesting/beautiful imagery (as guess what, this is usually the best stuff to talk about in your paper!)
  5. Write down a tentative theme and/or thesis (just off of what you get out of the poem the first time around – don’t worry, this isn’t permanent!)
  6. Why did you pick that thesis/that theme to work with? Think of 2+ points that support your thesis.
  7. Highlight any quotes that support these points.
  8. And there you go, a body for your essay is completed.
  9. Annotate with more specific notes towards each highlighted section. This is when you think of literary techniques used like simile, alliteration, onomatopoeia, etc.

For a Whole Book / Set of Poems:

  1. As you read the book, highlight any interesting/potentially useful quote.
  2. Let’s say you finish reading for the day after an hour. At that point, open a word document (or notebook), and record every quote you have found in different categories (include page numbers!!!!!).
  3. Categories could be things like: John Doe’s Character Exposition, Water Motif, Setting & Context, etc. etc.
  4. There are a few perks to doing this. First of all, you have all your quotes sorted, chronologically. This means that when looking at something like character development, you have a list of interesting quotes in the order of them happening thus basically creating a skeleton of their character arc! Second of all, having quotes in a large word document makes it far easier to find them! You can use command-F (if on a Mac), and search for a specific word/quote. This way, you don’t find yourself wasting time tracking down one tiny detail for an essay. Another perk is that by recording a few chapters wort of quotes at a time, you won’t be overwhelmed by hundreds of highlight marks throughout your book after you have finished reading. This basically ensures that once you have finished reading, all you have to do is sit down and write! No more spending hours searching for that one perfect quote in a 400 page novel!

The Charming family has finally defeated the Evil Queen. After years of torment and suffering, they’ve vanquished her for good—banished her to a far off land, that she’ll be unable to return from. All it took was the help of Rumpelstiltskin. The man who had previously been unwilling to aid them against Regina had finally found something worth his interest or, to be precise, his son’s interest.

Emma met Neal when she was 17.

She had been preparing to take her horse out for a ride when she saw movement in her peripheral vision, a blur running through the forest. Grabbing a sword, she headed after whatever she had spotted to discover a young man hiding in the trees.

He told her his name was Neal and that he was hiding from his father. He didn’t ask her for help but she had been raised by, whom she is sure to be, the most compassionate rulers to ever live and she had learned to spot a soul in need. So she offered him food, promised to keep his secret, and began to spend time with him.

Magic Bullet by matildajones (1/1 | 10,345 | PG13)

Someone clears their throat loudly and Derek looks up and finds Stiles in the dead centre of the room, his arm raised. Derek finds himself smiling slightly.
“Seriously?” Stiles says. “Don’t you think you’re reading too much into this?”
Derek’s only comfort over the past few years has been a novel written by his favorite author. When he decides to teach it at an entry level university course he doesn’t expect a fiery student to disagree with everything he says…

After School by thingsiwontadmittohavewritten (1/1 | 869 | NC17)

It’s the first day of school after the long summer, his smart mouth once again getting him into trouble

still bored still tired by Acrylicdemon (1/1 | 6,145 | R)

It wasn’t all terrible, Stiles knows. He was so cold, Derek was so warm, everything was fading and he was just so tired. His mom gently took his hand, led him to the abyss, and it was alright. He was safe. Everyone was safe. Nothing is cold, everything is warm and welcome. And when Derek joins him in a matter of blinks, he can only smile. His dad joins them, and he’s happy. He’s never been so wonderfully filled, so loved. Everything is complete, and everything is okay. He leads Derek into Nirvana, and Derek shoots him a loving smile that melts his insides into gold.

He’s content with holding Derek’s hand for an eternity.

Riverdale was the perfect city, nothing happened and everything is calm and quiet. One day one of the Blossom twins, Jason, disappeared. Since then chaos filled the city and everybody talked about the boy.

A few months later his body was found in the river, and that was the exact moment when the panic began.
You weren’t really worried about the killer and the dead boy,  you had other things on your mind, like good grades and her boyfriend.
You and Jughead have been dating for at least 3 months. At first it was fantastic, Jughead is a really good boyfriend but when Jason’s body was found you two weren’t together like before, you were almost strangers.

You walk in the hallways of your school, the last bell just rang, sign that the lessons were finished for today.
You turn around trying to get to your boyfriend’s locker.
“Hey Juggy” you kiss him on the cheek.
He looks at you and gives you a small smile returning to his locker.
“So where are we going tonight?”
Jughead sighs and looks at you with pity.
“I’m sorry Y/N, I can’t go out tonight, I have to write my novel”
You take a step back and put a fake smile on.
“Okay, see you Juggy”

You throw yourself on your bed, letting the tears fall from your eyes.
What did I do? He doesn’t love me anymore. I can’t live like this. Why doesn’t he love me anymore? Why does he prefer that stupid novel?
Millions of question fly inside your head, tears dry on your cheeks.
Slowly your eyelids begin to close, sending you in a dreamless sleep.

When you wake you notice the moon outside and get up to check your clock.
You get up, put your shoes on and grab a jacket.

When you open Pop’s door, the smell of fries and Pop’s smile almost make you forget what you came for. Almost.
You walk towards on of the boots.
“We need to talk”
Jughead turns his head to you, confused.
You look at him and then start to walk towards the exit, he walk behind you.
Once you are outside you take a deep breath and turn around.
“It’s over”
He furrows his brows.
“It’s obvious that you don’t love me as much as I do and I don’t wanna stay with a person that doesn’t love me so it’s over”
At this point of the conversation tears start to run down your face.
“See you at school”

Embers (Teaser)

The sudden explosion sent Hiro’s small frame flying through the air. A pained cry erupted from his lips from the rather excruciating impact. The raven knew he had been careless enough to have allowed himself to be in such a predicament but he couldn’t tear his eyes off the scene before him.

Orange and yellow hues accented the figure standing in the heart of the demolished terrain. There was no doubt in Hiro’s mind that he was the cause of this fiery abyss but the reason was why? Why would ‘he’ of all people be hell bent on causing destruction?

The flames twirled and whisked gracefully around the antagonist’s form as he closed in the distance between them. Amber eyes were wide in the horrid concoction of horror and disbelief. The ghosts of his past were finally catching up on him leaving nothing but agony and turmoil in its wake.

This couldn’t be the same person that watched out for him all his life. This couldn’t be the same big brother he looked up to. No, this man before him was just wearing a mask. This ‘thing’ couldn’t be Tadashi.

The cackling of the fire subdued an eerie silence to befall them until ‘he’ decided to speak.

“Long time no see, knucklehead.”

“T-Tadashi….?” he rasped.

I was planning on making a Sunfire! Tadashi Marvel inspired comic. This was supposed to be just the teaser but honestly this took way too long than expected. I have a lot of idea’s spinning around in this head of mine but I’ve been really busy as of late.

Although I might be continuing this in a simplified monochromatic form of comic! So stay tuned for that (maybe)(hopefully)!

Enjoy <3

Doing things a bit different this week…

Life got in the way for me this week as it sometimes tends to do, and I haven’t been around tumblr as much as I would like.  I am so sorry that I haven’t been the reblogging machine that I normally strive to be.  :(  

I have had a few other people reach out that they are a bit behind in their reading too, so I had an idea.

Our next reading selection will actually be one of the novels!  We will be reading The Valley of Fear starting May 1st!  

But in an effort to give me some time to catch up with all of your amazing posts about DYIN and CARB and reblog them for everyone to see, and to allow others to catch up on their reading, I have decided to make this week a prep/catch-up week. 

Feel free to post and tag your closing thoughts on DYIN and CARB and I will include those too.  Christmas husbands deserves more love that I gave it this week so I intend to catch-up!


Time for a bit of house-keeping and maintenance so I can finish reblogging all of our DYIN and CARB shenanigans so we can be ready to tackle The Valley of Fear on May 1st!  

If you have any questions let me know.  And if you want to get started on reading and blogging about The Valley of Fear, make sure you use the tag #VALL ACD 

(And I remembered to check this week haha…no one is using it)

See you May 1st!

And don’t be sorry!  I still haven’t worked out a masterpost for all my posts, so if you can’t find something, don’t feel bad.  I do have a tag page that you can check out for more information.  I tried to be as thorough as I could, so hopefully you can check out some more of my stuff if you want :)

Thanks again, and good luck!

If you need advice on general writing or fanfiction, you should maybe ask me!

i read on the ereri tag something about a novel called 2000 years of love, do you know what that is? they say its written by isayama, is this true? is it available in english? thank you and sorry to bother you

You don’t bother me anon! Do not worry :)

It’s been so long since I heard about that! But that novel doesn’t exist, because it was just some fake images a tumblr user did!

You can see them here and here. As the caption says, they’re fake. They’re also tagged “fake”, and that person even has a whole fake tag where they have many other edits they did ^^. Which are amazing, by the way! 

The person who edited them also clarified on this post that they were fake.

So nope, not real. Unfortunately, Isayama has never written an ereri novel!

All of this so much!

It’s also for many of these reasons and some others the I believe Chris was meant to be the next King Arthur.

I am - personally - strangely okay with Chris NOT being the true owner of Excalibur and Wyatt being the one who was chosen (with no effort of his own, which is very important to keep in mind) to wield it instead. Because it highlighted that you cannot be a hero by the sole virtue of being related to heroic family or because said family dotes on you incessantly.

Even when Chris sacrificed HIMSELF to spare Wyatt who was the main source of his traumas the one traumatic experience that Wyatt used as excuse to be evil and to terrorize all mankind and when Wyatt was supposed to be “good” he demonstrated the inability to handle a ONE FIFTH of the same neglect Chris had been dealing with on part of Leo in both timelines.

In Cheaper by the Coven Wyatt felt petty and entitled when little Chris was born and when their parents’ attention was divided between them. “Good” Wyatt then did exactly what he did to Chris in the dark future - exiled him from his home by orbing him out of the manor out of envy.

Everyone felt bad for WYATT, Phoebe predictably defended his actions - after dismissing two decades of the abuse adult Chris had suffered at Wyatt’s hands as “picking” (that sentiment came from a magical advice giving empath with a psychology degree that should have been revoked there and then). Until Phoebe realized said “picking” was going to affect HER and the rest of the world; which is when it suddenly became Chris’ “destiny” to redeem Wyatt, save them all and die.

Phoebe later insisted it was Chris’ job to “change” Leo’s toxic parenting KNOWING that even when Chris was rightly angry with his father he was still willing to put HIS pain aside to work with Leo on behalf of their family, before and after the reveal of Chris’ identity (after Leo assaulted him, told Chris he “wasn’t family”, threatened to kill him, planned to leave him for dead and petitioned to send him to dark future to be killed by his own brother, on top of the neglect Chris had suffered at Leo’s hands in his timeline).

Whereas Phoebe was too busy violating her suitors in alphabetic order through magic and barely visited pregnant Piper at magical school having to keep tabs on her condition by asking Chris how she was doing. Something even Piper later called Phoebe out on when noting the latter never visited her unless she needed something.

Chris kept a track of Piper’s pregnancy for all nine months (as shown starting from Spin City and highlighted in Crimes and Witchdemeanors where Chris materializes the moment Piper calls for him - he asks what Piper needs even before fully forming on the spot. Leo even preyed on Chris’ love for Piper to violate his boundaries and force Chris to talk to him) when he wasn’t risking his life daily to prevent Wyatt from turning into evil maniac. That is, in BETWEEN playing a fatherly figure to little Wyatt - a brother he’d spent a lifetime being neglected in favor of, brother who murdered Chris’ fiancee and told him he “didn’t need him” while trying to murder HIM not too long ago - during Leo’s half year long absence.

The absence Chris wasn’t even allowed to be angry about because Leo concluded it was Chris’ mission to not just save Wyatt from the latter’s conscious choice to be evil but to save their relationship that Leo had ruined in both timelines - and Chris ended up doing that too. By constantly giving Leo encouraging talks, assuring him he forgives Wyatt for everything and keeping that promise and telling Leo it was okay to choose Wyatt over him again. Even when Chris himself was dying after having sacrificed himself FOR Wyatt.

Chris died to spare Wyatt the traumatic experience that the latter used as a justification to be the literal ruler of all evil - “the trauma” was going to “turn Wyatt” and THAT trauma mattered.

Chris’ traumas were constantly dismissed by his family - and not just during his trip to past (with the purpose of saving them AND Wyatt) but after baby Chris’ birth too.

His brother terrorizing, abusing and trying to kill him while also terrorizing the world was “picking” until said family realized THEY were going to be affected by Wyatt’s actions.

Chris himself “wasn’t meant to be” because he was so focused on protecting his abusive brother and the family that mistreated, rendered him homeless and almost got him killed that he completely forgot about his own existence - except if that gross assertion from Phoebe was true then she had no leg to stand on when she blamed Chris for coming back to past to save them all in the first place. And for the choices Leo and Piper made in every version of past, present and future.

On top of the fact that Phoebe based her entitled pursuit of a happy ending with husband and kids (by using magic on her unknowing suitors via rapid fire dating to see their future thus actually “playing with people’s lives”) on a vision that Chris was a part of (that’s how she figured his identity) - but apparently HER happy ending was meant to be but Chris was not (she never even mentions it when Chris, depressingly, embraces the idea that his existence wasn’t meant to be - Chris gives HER a pep talk by saying it’s okay for Phoebe to dismiss the importance of his life like that because he “had been wondering the same thing” - and he has fulfilled his mission of warning his family about Wyatt. That’s the only argument he uses to even GET his aunts to help him not to cease to exist earlier in the episode - because if he isn’t born there’s no one to come back from the future to warn them. He KNOWS he is not valuable enough to his family as an individual).

Additionally, according to Phoebe Chris’ destiny was to “warn them about Wyatt and that’s all” because his existence and life did not matter beyond his usefulness to THEM - but not when they kicked him out of his own house for doing just that (warning them about Wyatt). And not when adult, “good” Wyatt accidentally blurted that little Chris swallows the marble at some point and Phoebe told him to “go easy on the future information”. Because this information was only good/acceptable when it could benefit everyone BUT Chris.

Phoebe started loving future information again when Chris gave her the needed details to retrieve Coop - Wyatt just participated in the conversation but it was Chris who initiated the reveal.

And that entire scene in Forever Charmed? All about Chris helping Phoebe get HER happy ending because apparently Chris’ “destiny” extended to that too - when he wasn’t objectified and used “for inspiration” so Phoebe could eliminate convicted criminals she breaks out of jail when under the spell she has inadvertently cast on herself - whereas Chris’ happy ending with Bianca is never mentioned.

Chris’ second trip to past was to help Wyatt reclaim the powers the latter abused against him in either timeline (and Chris even acknowledges Wyatt’s magic as a part of their mutual future despite the abuse he’d suffered in both timelines because of Wyatt’s powers. And despite nothing happening to HIS own magic. So when good!Wyatt puts Chris down in front of other family members Chris is being a bigger person and doesn’t gloat). As well as to give the aunt who insisted he “wasn’t meant to be” beyond making everyone’s lives better and safer her romantic happy ending.

Wyatt makes a speech about Phoebe’s alleged ~sacrifices and how the Elders decided to REWARD her for them by sending Coop (an actual person with agency and individuality) to her as a “prize”.

That is, after terrorizing Piper and Leo for their love and after one of the Elders MURDERED Chris in attempt to kidnap and kill his brother (which Chris knew Gideon could NOT do - but he still sacrificed his life to protect Wyatt from that ONE bad experience instead. Because he knew Wyatt would not handle that experience and starts tormenting the entire world. That’s why Chris told Leo - father who had been ignoring him for his whole life in Wyatt’s favor - to “save Wyatt and save the future” and leave him alone in his final moments).

Chris is not even allowed to be rightly angry at the Elders (Leo? He’s allowed to not just kill Gideon out of revenge but to bail on his family and little Chris AGAIN thus disrespecting Chris’ dying wish to not give up on their family and repeating the SAME mistakes. Because everyone’s experience is valid but that of Chris).

He tells Phoebe: “[the Elders] weren’t going to put you through what mom and dad went through’. Not ONCE does Chris mention himself and what HE went through because of them.

Chris’ experience with losing a mother on his 14th birthday was all about Piper blaming her absurdly NON-hateful son (who put up with all forms of abuse from his family in order to save his abusive sociopath brother from CHOOSING to be an abusive sociopath - ending up nearly obliterating his existence and ultimately giving up his life for that cause) for supposedly “hating her” (Piper ignored Paige for identical psychological reasons originally but that parallel was never mentioned. Chris rushing downstairs at Piper’s first call KNOWING nothing was physically wrong with her or his baby version - while HE was figuring out how to not be murdered violently by the demons in a process of figuring out who turns Wyatt evil - was also brushed aside).

Chris was the only one consistently on Piper’s side when even her sisters and Leo weren’t (Piper herself admits in Witchstock that Chris was the only one she could interact with when her sisters moved out whereas Leo was ignoring his family’s calls for hours KNOWING Wyatt was in danger. Chris, conversely, was instantly on the spot). Only to be kicked out of the house for telling the truth about what became of Wyatt in the future. And for using the same spell the sisters were using literally hours prior except THEY used it for wholly disturbing purposes of forcing a magically conjured man on Piper against her express wishes.

Whereas Chris tried to save the world by binding Wyatt’s powers - something PIPER herself wanted to do as well (for selfish reasons related to having more time for personal life) - because Chris knew for fact Wyatt was not going to handle said powers right. And because Chris was about to cease to exist as he was running out of time while trying to save the family that told him they “didn’t want to see him anymore”.

Needless to say it would have benefited Wyatt’s safety to not have demons attacking him daily - and it was established Wyatt did not have Chris’ self awareness and strength of character to deal with bad experiences WITHOUT becoming a tyrannical overlord.

Once Chris reveals that on top of dealing with Wyatt’s sociopathy and Leo’s neglect (and his aunts dying at one point which is when Wyatt put their untimely deaths on display in the museum he had built out of the manor after ALSO kicking Chris out on the streets) he had to deal with losing a mother at such young age (and on his birthday, no less) HE was made to apologize to Piper for her own false perception of his actions. After repeatedly stating he could not talk about the future out of fear of changing it for worse for HER (Chris was willing to put up with hurtful accusations towards himself but he couldn’t stand Piper hurting and blaming herself for being a bad mother).

Chris’ experience with Wyatt’s abuse was dismissed again when Leo told him to not hold a grudge which Chris never held given what he’d sacrificed to save Wyatt essentially from the latter’s own terrible choices.

In that scene Chris remarked that “as long as Wyatt is not ruler of all evil” he forgets and forgives all the personal offenses like they don’t matter.

Chris’ experiences were dismissed even when his child version was born.

Leo wouldn’t even hold baby Chris in his arms due to self pity fest, then adult Chris’ vision comes to give Leo a pep talk AGAIN - as if the one the real Chris gave to his absentee father on his deathbed when Chris begged him to not give up on his abusive brother (whom Leo had been choosing over Chris for 23 years) was not enough - and it is all about Chris being Leo’s “root pain”. Not about Leo making a mockery out of his son’s sacrifice.

Wyatt abusing magic against little Chris is all about WYATT’S feelings being hurt by the attention his little brother supposedly received - even Grams calls that out and says Wyatt will have to learn to deal with problems when Phoebe jumps to Wyatt’s defense per norm - and it’s never acknowledged that Chris dealt with worse neglect in both timelines. And still never became evil or vindictive or abusive.

HOWEVER, it’s also the point - “good” Wyatt KNEW he did not have Chris’ willpower and his self organization. In the new timeline Wyatt knew he needed his brother’s guidance - it is not random that Chris took on the role of little Wyatt’s guardian in Leo’s absence by repressing the traumas inflicted by evil Wyatt (that previously prevented Chris from being able to babysit little Wyatt, such as in 6X01 and 6X05).

And it’s not random that while Wyatt spouted future information left and right Chris actually knew WHEN it was and was not appropriate to reveal it (Wyatt specifically waits before Chris instigates the reveal crucial to Phoebe being able to “reclaim” Coop - and it’s Chris who gives all the useful details, up to directly telling Phoebe how to do it).

Wyatt became the Excalibur owner - as mentioned above - through no effort of his own. Chris chose to be a hero (no matter the slips and questionable choices) in spite of the traumas he had endured which IS why that story was HIS, not Wyatt’s.

After Chris Crossed one would THINK it will be a cliched vindictive quest once Wyatt murders Bianca, after torturing and trying to kill Chris for defiance (defiance being - trying to make sure Wyatt grows up a GOOD man).

But as it later turns out binding Wyatt’s powers was the furthest Chris was willing to go in terms of “stopping” Wyatt (he could have killed Wyatt the moment the latter stopped lifting the shield in front of Chris - who had just been rejected by his own family that said he was no longer welcome in his home BECAUSE Chris told them the truth about Wyatt’s terrible choices in the future). Which is what Paige planned to do - hilariously - to Richard’s powers who NEVER attempted to deliberately hurt anyone no matter his issues with magic.

What’s especially interesting is that Chris’ determination (as emphasized by Piper in Witchstock when she said he became “more determined than EVER” to protect Wyatt from evil - after the latter killed Bianca whilst Chris had to listen to daily tales about how important love and romantic relationships were for Phoebe and Paige. While he was risking his own existence to save the brother who murdered the love of HIS life - but Chris never ignored his responsibilities unlike them) to protect his family in the face of trauma was paralleled with Grams. And her experience with losing Allen (her first love) and using her grief as a fuel to protect her girls.

Piper highlights both Chris’ determination to protect Wyatt through ardent demon hunting after the trauma of losing his fiancee (unknowingly to her - because of Wyatt) and how losing their grandpa “made Grams who she was” (she refers to Grams as a “demon killer”).

Both Chris and Grams take an issue with Piper’s sisters bailing on her and moving out but not because there is something wrong with it (or with falling in love) but because it interfered with their responsibilities as witches AND siblings (responsibilities neither Chris nor Grams ever ignored).

It is also worth noting that Chris didn’t even care that Phoebe completely abandoned Piper (”the only reason she’s even here is Paige missed a vanquish”) as long as it was coordinated between the three of them that Paige shows up for vanquishes instead (something as Chris points out she ENJOYED doing previously). He only brings that topic up because Piper “handled the last four vanquishes alone” and that specific demon was “too strong for one witch to handle alone”.

Of course an hour later Chris’ family forgets all about what he said and blames HIM for not trying to get THEM to work hard enough. Like when they dismissed Chris’ warnings in “the power of three blondes” about the demons being after the book, then it turned out to be true and they needed Chris to get them out of trouble.

Or worse, when Chris flat out said he was “running out of time” and tried to, after nearly disappearing forever, get his family to take his theories on who turns Wyatt seriously (instead Paige kept a score on how many of said theories did not pan out while feeling offended when Chris pointed out the amount of vanquishes SHE had left Piper to deal with on her own). But when it turned out the deadline was reached they made Chris repeatedly apologize for trying to handle things alone and to protect them/not get them involved. After repeatedly shunning and dismissing him, that is.

Witchstock is a direct follow up to Bianca’s murder, the only episode where that event and Chris’ emotional response to it (”He’s trying his best to hide it, but he’s still really shaken up”) is acknowledged by people other than himself - and it’s the episode where Chris and Grams’ first meeting happens.

Because they are both determined and opinionated and don’t let tragedies force them off the right track they don’t immediately get along.

Chris argues with Grams on equal footing when she insists he is “not qualified for the job” and is “much too green to guide her girls” but he respects her authority when she tells him to not interrupt.

And in the next scene where Grams’ own backstory is revealed:

“Allen was killed by my best friend. I didn’t know it then, but she was evil. And I walked in right after it happened.[…]

I know I’m a ball buster. But it kept me alive to protect my girls from all the demons that came after them as kids”

Even Chris’ facial expression here indicates he GETS it

because Bianca was killed by his evil older brother and this tragedy only made him more determined to protect his family (including the brother in question).

Despite Grams putting him down repeatedly in previous scenes Chris still empathizes and sympathizes with her here.

In the next scene Chris and Grams both remark Leo’s plan regarding how to deal with the demon is bad and when it seems like Chris is arguing with Grams she calls him out and he makes it clear he is NOT trying to fight with her. He accepts her authority and treats her like an equal.

(meanwhile, Leo brings up his authority as an Elder in front of both Chris and Grams knowing the latter doesn’t like it. The only time Leo appeals to Grams is when she - temporarily - reverts back to being a “flower child” and is technically not herself and Leo asks her to tend to Wyatt. Thus reducing her to a more conventional female role vs treating her as a partner like Chris does).

When Chris comes up with a plan he makes sure to ask whether Grams is okay with it and gets her approval (”are you okay with that?”). That’s how he earns her trust by the end of the episode.

Where Chris is paralleled with Grams and Prue there is Wyatt who is paralleled with Phoebe. The latter pair always needs guidance despite having a great potential and Chris gave Wyatt that guidance the same way Prue gave it to Phoebe.
