This gif. It fucks me up every time I see it. LoOK AT THE WAY HIS EYES NEVER LEAVE HER FACE EVER. SHE IS NOT EVEN PAYING ATTENTION AND ALL HE CAN SEE IS HER. THE INTENSITY OF THOS STARE. EXUSE YOU STEPHEN AMELL. SIR. YOU DO NOT LOOK AT SOMEONE WHO IS NOT YOUR GIRLFRIEND LIKE THAT. AT ALL. EVER. FUCK ME UP WHY DON’T YOU.
“I’m telling you,” Isaac continued, “Augustus Waters talked so much that he’d interrupt you at his own funeral. And he was pretentious: Sweet Jesus Christ, that kid never took a piss without pondering the abundant metaphorical resonances of human waste production. And he was vain: I do not believe I have ever met a more physically attractive person who was more acutely aware of his own physical attractiveness.”
Real talk, during the podcast when Ian was like “I have a lovely girlfriend who’s in the room right now” I got so fucking hyped like it takes time for YouTubers etc. to be open about their relationships because fans can be fucking crazy and it just made me so happy that my boy is happy and being open about it and ugh
ok since i promised to do more metas! here’s a s3 parallel i haven’t seen anyone mention but i think is a really important indicator of isak’s character development/educating himself about depression/mental illness:
in episode 3, when vilde approaches isak about the invites for the rave pregame and he tries to come up with an excuse to get out of hosting, he uses linn as that excuse because of her depression. i don’t know how well isak and linn really know each other or get along, but i think his instinct to blame her is deeply related to the way he’s used to using his mom’s illness as a burden and an excuse. we’ve all seen isak do it in s1, deflecting responsibility for telling the school about eva and p chris by using his mom’s episode, and he also does it to excuse his blowing off the boy squad and emma’s pregame earlier in ep 3. this isn’t to say that isak doesn’t care about his mom - he clearly does, and her health obviously makes life stressful and complicated for him. but, rather than being there for her, educating himself, trying to understand, he victimizes himself.
