okay but can we just talk about how the stranger things cast is the same age as their characters?? like hollywood always tries to cast actors older than the characters they play but these kids ACTUALLY ARE MIDDLE SCHOOLERS and it’s beautiful

  • Max: Alright, just moved to Hawkins. I wonder what this town is like. I mean, it seems pretty normal-
  • Hopper: *in the background, being dragged away by the Bad Men™
  • Joyce: WHERE'S WILL AGAIN?!
  • Will: *transforming into the Thessalhydra*
  • Mike: *crying over boxes of Eggos*
  • Dr. Brenner: *returns but his body has cyborg pieces which he needs after being mauled by the Demogorgon*
  • Eleven: *battling Cyborg Papa while trying to console Mike*
  • Jonathan: I LOVE NANCY
  • Steve: I LOVE NANCY
  • Nancy: *swoons* I CAN'T DECIDE
  • Jonathan, Steve, Nancy: *soap opera bickering in the background*
  • Ted: WHERE DID ALL MY CHICKEN GO?!
  • Karen: WHY DO YOU CARE MORE ABOUT CHICKEN THAN ME!
  • Chicken: *becomes sentient and starts attacking the Wheeler house*
  • Barb: *returns from the dead as a zombie* I have returned...to seek...justice.
  • /
  • /
  • Max: ...well, fuck me, this is some strange shit.
  • Lucas: *bikes up to her* GURL, YOU THINK THIS IS STRANGE? THINGS ARE ABOUT TO GET...STRANGER!
  • Dustin: *puts on sunglasses* YEEEEEEEEEEEAAAAAHHHHH!

Meanwhile in heaven…

Bob: ahghggggg!!!….. wait where am I


*sees three glowing figures approach him, bob stares in awe*


Bob: who are you guys


Barb: we are….. the deserved better squad


Bob: woah


Benny: so what happened to you big guy


Bob: man all I wanted was to date joyce Byers and help this kid out-


Benny: oof never help the kid, that’s how they get you


Bob: yeah and I end up getting eaten by demo dogs


Barb: sorry man well at least your best friend didn’t make you go to a party then, leave you to be abducted by a demigorgan.


Mews: can y'all shut the fuck up, I didn’t do anything stupid like you guys, I wasn’t sitting on no pool edge alone, I didn’t open the door for some secret service member and, I most definitely did not stop and smile at Joyce when I was home free. no, I was minding my cat business when that little mother fucker jumped me.


Everyone: Mews! You can talk?


Mews: no shit now come on Bob join the deserved better squad


Bob: yeah, Bob newby, superhero deserved better


so bob, Benny, Barb, and Mews walk into heaven together, where they spend the rest of their lives getting praised, looking at #deservedbetter memes of themselves and do whatever the hell they want cause they deserved more….. the end

So I met Shannon Purser today at MS Comic Con. When Shannon asked my name for the autograph and I said Blake, she complimented my name. I didn’t shut up about it. All day, my friend heard me talking about it.

Later on, I went and told Shannon how much it means to me that she complimented my name. I explained I’m trans, and I don’t have the support of my parents or anything. They refuse to call me Blake, and then there she was, complimenting the same name. After I told her this, she hugged me and said she was proud of me, and I was pushing back tears. I legitimately almost cried.

Shannon Purser is a literal gift, and I’ve never felt so blessed. This is the best convention experience I’ve ever had.
