-Vanessa is Nancy’s beautiful softball gf who’s lowkey a badass -She’s also Steve’s best friend -Vanessa’s a latina girl & she rocks her naturally curly hair all the time -Vanessa exclusively wears sweatpants…..you will never see her in jeans -Vanessa is that girl who can pull of a leather jacket with sweats -When she’s feeling particularly fancy, she’ll dress up her sweats with some heels (Nancy fall even more in love when she does this) -She smells like sweat and grass and flowers & Nancy LOVES it -She move to Hawkins her sophomore year & is a year younger than Nancy (and takes Steve’s “King” title after he graduates) -Nancy goes to all her gfs games & brings Jon and Steve and they all cheer for her embarrassingly loud -Steve and Vanessa love to play sporty games together & make Nancy and Jon play with them & manage to wrangle the party in and soon it’s Saturday & they have a whole game going in the Byers back yard….even Hop & Joyce are playing -Vanessa is super carefree about her relationship. She walks around & always holds Nancy’s hand or has her arm around Nancy’s shoulders (she’s taller) -Vanessa and Steve make a bet 2 weeks after she moved to Hawkins: who can get their crush to go on a date first. (Vanessa wins) -Vanessa is a big role model for Max & El. She started hanging around the party a lot because of Steve, and because she’s the only girl, Max & El started spending more time with her -She’s also trans and has a gf so Max is like woah shit and really looks up to her -Vanessa gives Max a key to her van & the girls love to skip bad classes (mostly gym) to go hang out in the van together where no one can judge them -(Vanessa gives Max her van when she moves away for college) -Vanessa beats the shut out of Billy on her first day -He bothers Max too much in school, to get at Steve, who’s dropping Lucas and Dustin off, talking about how Steve doesn’t run the school anymore & as long as the kids are at Hawkins High, they’re his -Vanessa comes in, grabs Billy by the collar of his shirt and gets all up in his face -”You’re right. Steve doesn’t run this school anymore, but I do and those are my kids and if you lay a hand on them and I’ll make sure you’re six feet under, hear me?” -While Vanessa takes over Steve’s reign, people learn to leave the party alone because those are Steve’s kids and now Vanessa’s kids and no one wants to be on Vanessa’s bad side -By the time Vanessa graduates, Elmax have become somewhat of a power couple & take over her reign
stop being creepy and obsessive over kids?? it’s bordering on predatory at this point. dedicating whole fuckin blogs and gifsets to child actors, shipping real children… yall are weird. stay the fuck away from kids.
I wanna talk about Keith and hugs. Keith loves hugs. He never rejects them or moves away from them and more often than not they leave him smiling and lingering close:
But. Oh god. He’s always so careful with his hugs. So, so careful. Like, compare them to Hunk’s:
Keith’s hugs are just…. they are so gentle… there’s no pressure… everything is slow and soft…. he’s so careful not to overdo it…..
Keith gives the softest hugs, they are barely there… and that’s so interesting. Keith doesn’t shy away from physical contact, he reaches out when someone needs help getting up and has no problems with placing his hand on someone’s arm/shoulder to encourage them etc. It’s not the touch itself that troubles him. Look at the group hug, he doesn’t mind getting squished between other bodies. Heck, he obviously likes it!!
But his hugs. His hugs are like his smiles. Keith isn’t used to showing affection. He loves receiving it, it doesn’t embarrass him at all, but he doesn’t really know how to do it himself. His hugs are soft and tender and careful, always open so that the other one can pull away in case they feel uncomfortable or don’t want him.
JUST. PLEASE GIVE HIM MORE HUGS. SHOWER HIM IN AFFECTION, DROWN HIM IN IT, TEACH HIM HOW TO HUG TIGHTLY, MAKE HIM FEEL APPRECIATED, MAKE HIM FEEL HAPPY-
I love poe so much from “As long as there’s light, we’ve got a chance” to “We are the spark, that’ll light the fire, that’ll burn the First Order down” poe is so iconic and determined and cheesy as hell
