ok, but since i started following the skam soundtrack on spotify, i’ve always said that all i ever wanted was to go to a party where they played those songs… what i’m saying is:

nrk, you could have sent me an invite to yesterday’s party.

Sana’s Eid party is wonderful, everybody’s happy and chatting and having fun all together. Sana is glowing, shyly smiling at Yousef as he serves her some kind of delicious biscuit cooked by her mom. Isak has seen the last Hei Briskeby video (maybe a bit more than a couple of times) so he knows Yousef should be in Turkey right now. But, for some unexplainable reason, he’s come back to attend the party.

Faen, Isak couldn’t be happier for his best bud.

He’s laughing at one of Magnus’ jokes-that-were-never-meant-to-be-jokes when he sees him. Even. The last time he noticed him in the crowd he was talking to Mikael. Now he’s alone, though. Drinking some incredible juice as red as his lips. Brows furrowed in a way that Isak doesn’t like. At all.

He excuses himself from his friends and makes his way towards the man of his dreams.

«Ehi,» Isak says. Even doesn’t reply.

«Is everything okay?»

«I don’t know,» Even says. He looks down at his glass, thinking. Isak just waits. «It feels like an ending.»


«This. All of this. The party, us, our friends. All of this. It feels like we won’t have it ever again.»

Isak smiles, and bumps his shoulder with Even’s. Even raises his gaze, meeting Isak’s green eyes.

«Maybe in another universe that’s true,» Isak answers. «Maybe in another universe this is actually the end, and we’ll never see our friends anymore, and the two of us will break up, and everything we have will just disappear.

But in this universe?

Oh, Even. In this universe, this is forever.»


Well, this show is coming to an end and I couldn’t be sadder. I enjoyed (almost) every little clip and update. I’ve never done this, but I think there’s a first time for everything.

First of all I want to thank that anon who motivated me to watch Skam. I’d been seeing some gifs of the show in my tl for a while, but I never really started watching it because I thought it was the same as most teen shows. But that message was what made me move Skam from ‘Shows to watch when I have time’ list to ‘Bingewatching even though you have finals’ list.

I want to thank Julie for creating this beautiful world. Her idea is so original and realistic that it just seems we’re watching a documentary on Norwegian teens.

I want to thank every crew member involved, because Mari and her updates killed me everytime, Susanna made me fall in love with everything they wore, the soundtrack was amazing, scenaries where breathtaking, and so on.

I want to thank all the actors for playing those amazing characters with such genuineness and caring. They’re all so young and most of them have little experience, and yet, they did amazing (proud mamma).

I also want to thank everyone that has made laugh, smile or just enjoy a little more the show. And that is you, Skamily, with your funny edits, your cute and amazing edits, your ramblings or just your reactions, you helped me get through the bad clips and love even more the good ones.

And last, but definitely not least (it’s the real reason I decided to write this), I want to thank every single one of you that spent his/her time translating every clip, every message, every instagram post and every interview. Without you Skam wouldn’t be what it is today, you were the ones who made it possible for us foreigners to watch it and you deserve the world. 

Without receiving anything in return, you decided to reupload all the clips 5 minutes after they were upload in the page, and that is incredible. Believe me when I say I’m thankful, because it’s true. I’m thankful that you are such good people that decided to help others (people that you don’t know, btw) in their way to happiness. 

I don’t think you realize how important it is what you did. Thanks to you, some people were able to watch this show and that helped them through the hard times in their lives, they felt represented, they saw that they’re not alone in their problems and that someone is going through the same (I know it doesn’t really solve youre problems, but it makes you feel a little better),…; overall, they were happier than they were before they knew the existence of Skam


If you keep doing what you’re doing this world would be a little better, I’m sure.

I’m tagging every character because I think these people deserve to know how thankful we are. Sorry if it seems like I’m spaming the tags.
