tv: the class

You are not a fake fan if you only like the movies

You are not a fake fan if you only like the books

You are not a fake fan if you only like the TV show

You are not a fake fan if you don’t want to rewatch

You are not a fake fan if you don’t want to reread

You are not a fake fan if you are not active in the fandom

You are not a fake fan if you don’t buy merch

You are not a fake fan if you don’t go to cons

You are not a fake fan if you dislike the actors/authors

You are not a fake fan if you skip episodes

You are not a fake fan if you skip chapters

You are not a fake fan if you don’t ship the main ship

You are not a fake fan if you dislike the characters

You are not a fake fan if you only watch/read to get a taste of LGBT+ representation

The only thing that makes you a ‘fake fan’ is if you pretend to like something for someone else’s benefit

I feel like I need to recruit people to the Class fandom because no one on my dash is talking about it and it’s awesome. So here are some reasons to watch Class.

- Openly gay protagonist who gets a romance arc from the first episode.

- Miss Quill hating everyone but still having to save them constantly and being thoroughly sarcastic about it all.

- Loving and supportive father/son relationship between characters of colour.

- Issues of racism getting discussed (”Have you ever tried going through airport security in a turban?”).

- A character who loses a limb and has a whole story arc about getting used to the alien prosthetic and worrying about his future in athletics.

- Miss Quill and Charlie not understanding popular culture (*reading the Hunger Games* “Did this actually happen?”, *discussing Narnia* “Is that in Canada?”)

- The most academically brilliant character looks like this:

- Characters who act in shitty ways to people getting called out on it by other characters.

- Characters having to do bad things for good reasons and worrying about what this means for them and/or their relationships.

- Characters dealing with loss and grief and addressing the emotional consequences of what they’ve seen.

- Someone just saying “yes” in answer to the question “if we wipe out the entire species of aliens who go around wiping entire species out of existence and are currently threatening to kill everyone Earth, are we any different?”

If you’re in the UK, the entire show is available on BBC iPlayer right now so go watch it.

A bunch of things that have happened at my school.
  • The graphics teacher here is seen and worshipped as a legend. Some of the graphics kids made hundreds of stickers of just his face and stuck them on stop signs all over the world.
  • Some girl got caught piercing another girl’s bellybutton during lunch. Like ya do.
  • Our TV class (they film the school news, aka “the buzz” every week) went to California, but some of them got arrested for underage drinking while there.
  • Last year, my US history teacher kicked open his door while wearing a jedi robe, proclaiming “IT IS TIME TO PLAY DUNGEONS AND DRAGONS!” (after which he made students play dnd with him)
  • My friend went up to our creative writing teacher and yelled “I’M GAY!” to which the teacher responded “WE KNOW!”
  • We have a huge rivalry with another school. Multiple times, both schools have been told to tone it down with the hatred. Football games are insane.
  • My marine science teacher made a student hold a spider while using “it doesn’t have many mitochondria” as reassurance.
  • This kid on instagram threatened to shoot up the school on a saturday. No one really caught onto the saturday part, so everyone freaked out.
  • We take spirit week VERY seriously - during the most recent one, people were running around the school in those inflatable dinosaur costumes. Also, we have “jazzercise thursday” aka seniors dress up in neon clothing and sprint around the school with whistles, consequently making all the teachers crave death.
  • The graphics teacher found ink buckets in the ceiling of his lab. No one really knows how they got there??
  • Because this is the south, if you go to the student parking lot, I guarantee you can find at least three jeeps lined up next to each other.
  • In french class sophomore year, we were being taught how to count in french. The french word for eighty (quatre-vingts) literally transltes to four twenties. My best friend stood up and screamed, at the top of his lungs, “FOUR TWENTY!” and got kicked out of the classroom ten minutes before the bell.

That’s all I have for now; I’m sure I’ll be back with more.
