I still can’t believe that Flint’s entire character, his whole persona, his ambitions, his entire life, is canonically based on his romantic love for another man. Literally everything that drives him stems from that love. Everything he’s trying to accomplish, everything he is. Captain Flint is literally a character created by a man who loved another man. And it’s canon.
general opinion: fall in a hole and die | don’t like them | eh | they’re fine I guess | like them! | love them | actual love of my life hotness level: get away from me | meh | neutral | theoretically hot but not my type | pretty hot | gorgeous! | 10/10 would bang (don’t ask how he’s both, he just is, y’all should Understand) hogwarts house: gryffindor | slytherin | ravenclaw | hufflepuff best quality: the fact that he’s literally more explicitly feminist than 90% of female characters on television (runner up: he actually owns up to his mistakes and apologises, frequently) worst quality: man, this boy dumb. he do so much dumb shit. so much. (I love him for it.) ship them with: Jake/Amy is the best and purest het ship in existence (though Jake is bi af, fight me) brotp them with: Gina, Rosa, Charles, Terry, Holt (this is more of a dad one). boy loves his friends, boy is such a good friend, what a good, I love him needs to stay away from: his dad. and the Vulture who needs to stop slapping his ass (hc: the Vulture is quietly bi too, and therefore needs to leave my boy Alone) misc. thoughts: honestly I could talk about how fucking wonderful and vaguely revolutionary a protagonist Jake is forever bc like, he could have been the typical immature cis white guy who does a bunch of shitty stuff and gets away with it
and instead he’s a feminist Jewish cinnamon roll who does fuck up on occasion but learns and apologises for being an ass, and is like, the Most Supportive Friend Ever, and he loves his friends so much and he loves his girlfriend so much and respects her so much that he refused to sabotage her dates when he was still too chicken to ask her out because he wasn’t about to fuck up her life and make her choices for her just because he wasn’t brave enough to do anything
like bro he casually called out transphobia in a beloved movie and he punched a homophobe (who had up until that moment been one of his idols) in the face with barely any hesitation despite knowing the repercussions it would have
Jake Peralta is bisexual af and I’ll scream it from the hilltops I love this good pure bi boy
but also on the other hand - FUCK JAKE PERALTA FOR UTTERLY RUINING MY SPEECH PATTERN, I say ‘noice’ and ‘cool cool cool cool’ and other various ridiculous bullshit because of him, I cannot believe the audacity
