ugly mofos

speaking of the lotf boys’ looks, I think people often forget how Jack was described as a gangly, ugly ginger (I mean, I myself forget all the time since I draw him attractive lmao), and I’m pretty sure Golding literally implied the “Beauty And The Beast” theme from the original fairy tale with Ralph and Jack (probably not romantically, but who knows after all), because it’s too much of a coincidence how Ralph was the perfect pretty boy who tried really hard to be civilized and proper and hated violence, while Jack was the opposite in terms of looks and was basically an angry, savage beast who loved violence
