I think Jack likes to talk about his feelings a lot, but the problem has always been that no one is patient enough to listen to him. And it’s not always their fault. Sometimes they don’t even know that they’re interrupting him because he’s been silent for five minutes trying to think of the right words to say. His parents are too desperate for answers, or too sad to listen to the silence. His therapist will ask him another question if he doesn’t give him an answer fast enough, thinking that he just doesn’t have one yet. And Shitty will say that Jack doesn’t have to explain why he’s feeling down and Jack doesn’t even have the words to explain that there’s so much he wants to tell him.
Eric didn’t get it at first either. He would always try to fill the silence with something because the cold look in Jack’s eyes when he talks about the things that make him have bad days is something that still haunts him. But with time, with too many nights of being there and not knowing what to do, he starts to understand Jack’s need to take his time - just like he does with all his other emotions.
“Do you wanna talk about it?” Eric will ask when he sees something bothering him. And Jack will nod, because he does, and then maybe not say anything for a few minutes. And Eric will hold him, run his fingers through soft hair, and listen to the silence until it’s ready to not be there anymore.
So were re-watching the LotR trilogy (again) & I noticed Legolas recycling bits of his dad’s old quotes.
Well obviously, I know Return of the King was released first. But it’s interesting that they’d have Thrandy use the same phrase to describe the threat of Mordor in DoS. It makes it look like Leggy is echoing his father’s words when you re-watch RotK.
shitty calling jack “babes” …. jack leaning into shittys side when he throws his arm around his shoulder …. shitty poking his head in jacks room and asking if he’s alright and getting a tired shrug in reply, so he lays in bed with him and puts on some trash tv and waits for jack to fall asleep before leaving. Jack finds a little pine scented candle or a bath bomb or a well meaning but unexplained jar of pickles or peanut butter on his side table when he wakes up, usually with a heart scribbled on it somewhere in sharpie …. jack joining shitty on the couch and asking if he’s alright, and shitty sinks down and settles his head in jacks lap and talks about every single thing thats stressing him out while jack plays with his hair and listens attentively …. Uh hi shitty and jack are so good to each other and their friendship has me ? dead!
