breathe. you’ve made it so far this year. you’ve gotten through so many things that you thought you wouldn’t, and you’ll continue to get though this, whatever it is. i know you can. i believe in you, and i’m so, so proud of you. i know it probably seems impossible, but it’s going to be ok. it’s going to be ok.
breathe in, breath out. and just keep breathing. we’re gonna get there.
Everybody is talking about the Mike/Eleven relationship this season (and not without good reason) BUT I CANNOT BELIEVE THAT THERE AREN’T MORE PEOPLE TALKING ABOUT THE GLORIOUSNESS THAT IS THE MIKE AND WILL FRIENDSHIP.
Just a few examples of this goodness:
Mike literally refusing to leave Will’s side pretty much from the moment he got infected by the shadow monster until the final episode.
Mike sleeping in a hospital chair next to Will’s bed at the lab
Will confiding in Mike about all the shadow monster episodes
“I’ll take care of him. Let me take him home.” (on halloween night)
Mike instinctually trusting Will about Dart being the demogorgon no questions asked
“If we’re both going crazy then I guess we’ll go crazy together.”
When Will had forgotten a lot of things because of the virus, but he hadn’t forgotten Mike
Mike trying to phone Will throughout the school day when Will didn’t show up to school
Joyce trying to send Mike home when Will’s infected and Mike is just not having ANY of that bullshit
The only time we see Will’s facial expression change when he’s under the control of the shadow monster is when a single tear rolls down his face after Mike has finished telling the story of the day they met
Oh no Will’s in trouble! *first thing we see is a camera pan to Mike’s worried face*
Oh so when Will wakes up in the disguised shack of course Hopper will be there in case something goes wrong. Joyce and Jonathan obviously, because family. Oh and Mike Wheeler, despite the fact that the rest of their gang of friends remained in the house.
are you telling me that mike and will are like family because i am not emotionally ready to deal with that
When they’re all telling stories to get Will to snap out of it and Will’s own mother and brother have told heart-wrenching emotional stories and nothing’s come of it and the thing that finally gets Will to fight back and start replying in morse code is Mike telling Will about the day they met
Basically my emotions went everywhere when Mike was talking about the day that he became friends with Will
“It was the best thing that I’ve ever done.”
You can go on and on about any of the other relationships between characters. But you cannot deny that the friendship between Mike and Will is literally the purest thing to ever exist on television.
To conclude, why are people not talking more about this beautiful example of everything good about the world that is Will Byers and Mike Wheeler’s friendship
Aries: They’ll try to change you. Maybe you won’t even notice it, but in relationship, they just want things to be their way, so if you know about a bad habit of yours, or just about anything you know she hates, prepare for her trying to change it.
Taurus: Kinda jealous, but you most likely won’t know. Oh yeah… except they’ll just randomly ignore you, give you evil looks and suddenly become affectionate in front of your female friends. But they’ll never actually tell you what’s bothering them…
Gemini: They literally can’t decide what do they want. At first, you were just someone they were dating for fun, but suddenly they’re planning a wedding with you. Once you start participate? You’re too commited for them.
Cancer: Super overprotective to the point where it’s uncomfortable. They’re like a mother but 100 times worse. They’ll always ask you million questions about everything and will want to go everywhere with you and do everything with you.
Leo: Needs constant excitement or they’ll get bored super quickly. I mean yes, relationships are about excitement, you go places together and all that, but with Leo girl, you literally have to be doing something all the time and give her your attention 24/7. They have zero chill.
Virgo: They soemtimes act as if you guys were only friends. I think this might be because they’re not the best at showing affection, so sometimes they just joke around and don’t actually do anything related to dating such as holding hands, kissing, etc… I’m not saying it’s exactly a bad thing, it’s more about how it makes you feel…
Libra: The insecure and whiny ones. And listen, they’re not normally insecure. But in front of you? Lord helps you. they’ll always ask you if you think they’re fat, want you to remind them that they’re loved every single day and if they have a bad day, they’ll give you a VERY detailed speech about it. Lowkey jealous as well.
Scorpio: They don’t know their boundaries. They’ll ask you about your day and expect you to tell them with full detail. Whenever you go on a trip, they want to know exactly where you go. Also probably know about every single one of your female friends. And they already hate them.
Sagittarius: Once they’re in the relationship with you, they think it’s okay for them to do literally anything. Going through your phone, suddenly ignoring you for a month, flirting with other people… I mean it’s not a big deal, after all you’re a couple, right ?
Capricorn: That girlfriend that will yell at you in front of your friends because you smiled at another girl. They look like calm and loving girlfriends, but there’s this evil side of them that awakes once you date for more than a week. They just want you just for themselves. On the other hand, they can actually get pretty flirty with other guys, though you wouldn’t really guessed it…
Aquarius: They’re not really good at showing love. Like, they’re loving and actually secretly enjoy romantic sutff, but they don’t really get affectionate or anything. This is not anything horrible, but it might make you feel as if they didn’t even care. Also tend to be flirty with other people a lot while they’re in a relationship…
Pisces: The overthinker. Oh boy. They will look at every single one of your moves and overthink it to the point when they’re just sobbing and already thinking about you breaking up with them. Might make a big deal out of a lot of things. Lowkey jealous, but not hysterical.
