“The moment we sat down and talked to each other, we had like a natural connection right away. He said to me afterwards that the most important thing for him was to feel comfortable. He had to be comfortable with me and I had to be comfortable with him to do all the stuff that we did this season. I think we just clicked and he felt as much as I did.” (x)

كُن جميلًا في كل شيء :
صداقتك ، حبك ، أخلاقك ، تعاملك ،
حتى في البُعد كُن جميلًا .
 
  

Be beautiful in everything:
your friendship, your love, your morals, your behavior, even in the parting be beautiful.

Sure, the bedroom scene is #iconique, but can we talk about how Keith gives Lance the softest look ever in the middle of a f i g h t??

i know there’s a lot of high school headcanons going around for the thb and the ipre right now so let me throw mine into the ring

-magnus is on football and lup is a soccer captain and they have a bitter rivalry that turns into a dear friendship where they constantly try to get the other to join their sport

-magnus also plays hockey in the winter and track and field in the spring (he’s a thrower) which is how he meets killian and carey in their respective sports

-carey is a sprinter in the spring but in the winter she’s the gymnastic team star and she saw taako do a death drop once and never stops pestering him to join the team

-as opposed to lup, who does literally everything, taako does no sports and no activities, yet is somehow always present at them because his friends won’t goddamn stop signing up for things. he was a cheerleader briefly junior year but they kicked him out for flashing kravitz

-kravitz is football player and he transferred there sophomore year. on his first day he was so nervous that he replied to a question in a british accent and realized he would have to either explain that or fake an accent for three years. guess which he chose

-lup and barry meet in orchestra freshman year (they have to share sheet music because there weren’t enough copies) and it’s the beginning of an unlikely but beautiful friendship between a punk jock and a total nerd. all their friends know they’re in love but neither one does anything about it until senior year

-merle is not technically a weed dealer because he grows it and then gives it to them for free. none of them know when or how they became friends with him, but boy it sure did happen

-lucretia is top of her class despite skipping two grades and is basically the best at everything. when the music director leaves junior year, lucretia steps in as the teacher and just sort of.. keeps doing it. all her friends call her “madame director” whenever they’re addressing her in class

there’s more but this is already very long. in conclusion, this is griffin’s fault

six of crows is literally one of the best ya books out there right now it takes ya tropes but presents them in a smart and new and interesting way that comments on those tropes but also demonstrates how they can work without being cliche. you have a ragtag group of underdog characters who come together for a heist but each individual is so fleshed out and given a backstory that informs their choices you love every single one of the group. the series also has some of the best worldbuilding. its a fantasy world with magic but it focuses on a part of fantasy world we dont often see: the poverty stricken areas. there are gangs and gambling and prostitution that make the world seem real and gritty and gives it depth. it also is so ambitious in the Issues it addresses but does it in the most tasteful and beautiful way it makes me cry. there are discussions of trauma, sex slavery, agoraphobia, race, religion, class issues, learned racism, nativism, addiction, and ableism. and like none of that is even the main part of the story this is a heist book with magic and the most pure and beautiful romance and friendships … i cant believe this book is getting slept on i need a movie deal for this series asap so young people can experience it and learn about overcoming trauma in healthy ways i would die for kaz brekker by the way
