I don't want to come off as clueless or ignorant, but what makes you think that Noora was Julie's self-insert?
she’s said in interviews that noora is very similar to her and that noorhelm was based on an old relationship (the guy she named william after is named odd-magnus williamson…) and once you realize this it becomes so clear how she prioritizes noora and william above all other characters as a way to live out an alternate version of her high school relationship lmao
Is the only one who actually works to get money for Dragon’s Lair
Fact: has the best poses when the boys are getting their pictures taken in their ghostbuster costumes
Calls out Mike for assuming he should be Winston because he’s black
When Dustin thinks he’s discovered a new species, Lucas’s first instinct is to show Mr. Clarke + when Will thinks it may be from the upside down Lucas suggests they take D’art to Hopper = the only sensible child in this show. Don’t be afraid to ask for help kids!!!
THE ICONIC DOOR KICK !!!!!!! !!!!!!1111!!!!!!!!11!!!!!!!!! !!!!!!!!!!!!!
Somehow makes jumping out of a dumpster look cool
Oh man, Caleb McLaughlin’s acting when he asks Max “how do you know about El?”
In that one line he conveys how much Lucas: 1. misses El, 2. cares about El, 3. wants to protect El, 4. is sad that El’s gone, and 5. feels guilty for not saving El. (asdjskafsdfh am I reading too much into this?? I’m sorry his friendship with El is just A Lot™ for me.)
Goes to his dad for love advice (seriously the only one that has any faith in adults) and listens to him (thank god there’s at least one healthy biological father-son relationship on this show)
After he tells Max about Eleven, he says, it feels “like yesterday” that they lost her. (Seriously FIGHT ME if you think El disappearing didn’t affect Lucas (or Dustin!))
Is such a good listener when talking to Max on the roof of the bus. He lets her pause as long as she needs to when she’s thinking about what she wants to say and when she finishes speaking, he doesn’t say anything right away because he’s processing what she said and wants to give a thoughtful, comforting response instead of saying the first thing that comes to mind.
Most characters are lucky to get one (1) iconic accessory. This boy has THREE.
He also puts the black paint gunk stuff (i dont fucking know what it’s called ok??) under his eyes because when he’s gearing up to fight upside down monsters he commits to the Look™.
“Analogy” PRECIOUS GRAMMAR SNOB.
READY TO WRIST ROCKET THOSE DEMODOGS INTO NEXT TUESDAY WHO GIVES A FUCK IF IT DIDNT WORK ON THE DEMOGORGON HES READY TO THROW DOWN #nofear
Anyone who kicks Billy Hargrove in the balls is a hero to me
Doesn’t let anyone talk shit about his girlfriend’s driving skills. Mike: she’s only driven in a parking lot. Lucas: “That counts!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1!!!11!!!”
Practices asking Max to dance. so. many. times.
Still manages to fuck it up. #RelatableAF.
His hesitation to put his hands on Max’s waist. Someone help this boy, he’s so nervous.
His face after Max kisses him is so precious. I can’t even describe it. Gifs don’t do it justice. Just go back and watch the whole snow ball scene again, you know you want to anyway.
In conclusion, Lucas Sinclair continued to be a icon in season 2 and idk how anyone couldn’t love him.
