To r600 in the last thread: I called Fraulein being a bash troll AND fraulein’s alt being a troll first both times. Sorry but my intuition has checked out multiple times here.

R4 Well, I think you’re pushing it with this one. I don’t even know what issue you can have with his last comment.

by Anonymousreply 5February 9, 2024 4:53 PM

R5 you’ve gotten it wrong twice defending her haven’t you? If I’m wrong and this is a Joe fan, great: I’ll be thrilled. But I think my track record is better. He’s made comments that Joe posted OF Nick to instigate Bqsh, asked one day why bash and Joe broke up and the next day started opining on the breakup, started defending bash for “living his life and minding his business”, denied Joe has body image issues, and now said people don’t look out for Kit “as much” as Joe. When the fuck has anyone defended Joe from the cast (who adore and defend both Joe and Kit) or from Alice Patrick etc (who are trash to everyone) more than Kit? As I said, I’ve clocked Fraulein twice based on similar shit.

R8 what’s the point in arguing with me on this? Genuinely. I’m not gonna change my mind. As I said if I’m wrong amazing and I’ll admit as much. But I can identify patterns and if I’m right then hopefully you’ll admit as much.

You’re also totally ignoring everything I posted above. The same “idk anything about the breakup” one day and the next “well here are my opinions on it and actually bash seems like a good guy”. The insinuation the cast treats Joe better than Kit. The “Joe doesn’t have shitty PR kit is just more thoughtful” stuff. As I said: if I’ve been right twice and beaten others to the punch on identifying trolls, I’m gonna trust my instinct and not yours.

R22 The idea that fans look after Joe more than Kit is hilarious. The guy was getting death threats and they were crying someone was standing outside Kit's hotel and being pushy and saying Joe's not famous enough for anyone to want to harm.

by Anonymousreply 24February 9, 2024 5:29 PM

R22 with all respect I would say the opposite. if anything, the entire cast is OVER babied and infantalized by fans. i say that thinking kit absolutely deserved to be defended for the queerbaiting shit. it was fucking evil. but the fandom does not treat him as more adult or less in need of support because of his looks. they make fucking weird edits of him fidgeting and say he's so clearly anxious and shy, turn every troll cc about kit or joe into a huge melodrama about how protective they are of them, and make weird fucking infantalizing comments about how kit despises being called hot. i think kit's looks and demeanor have nothing to do with people being cunts to him. i think it's that trolls fucking suck and sadly know they got a reaction from him, a fully justified one might i add, about calling him a queerbaiter so now they'll keep doing it.

by Anonymousreply 25February 9, 2024 5:29 PM

R24 I don't get where you are taking that I think fans look after Joe more than Kit. I have not mentioned Joe in any of my comments about this. R25 That's fair. I remember when film accounts posted about Kit's birthday last year, a lot of people were shocked he was only 19. They tweeted that they felt bad he went through what he went through so young as they thought he was older.

by Anonymousreply 26February 9, 2024 5:35 PM

R26 i don't think the birthday comments example really changes my thoughts tho i get what you were saying. because it doesn't seem like anyone thought what happened to him was ok. just they already thought it was bad but knowing he was even younger makes it even worse.

by Anonymousreply 28February 9, 2024 5:39 PM

R26 I do think the cast looked up to Kit a lot because he was the most experienced. There must have been a sense of taking on this role that maybe was heavy to take on as a 17 year old. Always hated when Patrick called Kit “the king”. He was so young. At the same time, I hated how fans would jump on Joe’s neck every time he breathed wrong (in their eyes). Hated the way Alice would complain in interviews when Joe and Kit had to deal with so much more.

by Anonymousreply 29February 9, 2024 5:40 PM

I think I see where R26 is coming from, and I don’t want there to be 5 alt accounts from the same person, so I’m giving him the benefit of the doubt. HS fans deep in the trenches are all crazy and definitely infantilize the entire cast. But I do think more casual fans and the public at large assume Kit’s in his early 20’s. He’s very mature, looks older now than he’s so built, etc. But the fandom itself is a different story.

by Anonymousreply 30February 9, 2024 5:41 PM

R26 and i didn't leave r24 but for me at least the point was we had been discussing in the last thread how the cast treats kit versus joe, and agreed the cast loved and protected both pretty equally but that joe was maybe treated a little differently because of factors like them being the only ones to really understand how much bullying had hurt him, and him being a generally more anxious person, while kit was an old pro when they went on set who they looked up to so wouldn't really baby as much. i think in that context, and i get it wasn't meant this way, saying kit is less taken care of or not "as much" as unnamed others, it's a pretty reasonable inference that you were referencing joe. because that was the entire context of the conversation.

by Anonymousreply 31February 9, 2024 5:42 PM

R26 Do you not read the context of the conversations that are going on before you comment?

How it started

[quote] to be fair I think kit also forgets Joe isn’t the baby of the group

[quote] With Kit, I think everyone is definitely protective of him, especially after his coming out. But they've also mentioned him as a leader or guide of sorts because he had the most experience when they all started working together in S1. They all talk about it as though he still 100% treated them equally and was very kind and patient with them, but I imagine that created a shift where they were never going to quite see him as the baby. Tangentially, there's that cute anecdote about how their castmates knew the show would be good as soon as Joe and Kit started performing during S1 read-throughs. It would seriously be the smartest thing to release physical media with that behind the scenes stuff people would eat up. The S2 read-through video is famous to this day.

[quote] and to your point of seeing/not seeing someone as the baby: I think your reasoning makes a lot of sense and will say in reverse with everyone treating Joe so gently that they’ve all mentioned him being anxious and overthinking, and very obviously the nonstop shit he got on Twitter impacted him more than we’ve seen so I think those things interplay to make him a little more doted on to use the DL phrase

[quote] Yeah, you can't even chalk it up to physicality in S1 since Kit was still pretty tiny himself. Joe and Kit would often call themselves similar to their characters in S1 press, so while they were filming, I wouldn't be surprised if everyone was affectionately protective of Joe in the same way S1 has everyone affectionately protective of Charlie

And then you

[quote]The youngest of the cast is Cormarc, right? And then Kit? I feel bad for Kit because I feel people see him as being older so they don't look out for him as much.

People were talking about Joe, you show up and say no, actually Kit's the youngest and don't look out for him. Not hard to see how people think you were implying something about Joe

by Anonymousreply 32February 9, 2024 5:43 PM

R30 I mean maybe I’m just very very jaded by Twitter but cast aside, I don’t think any young stars are treated well whether they look older or younger. Millie Bobby Brown was clearly a child, like 13, when people first got on her for being annoying and talking too much and pissing them off. Even if kit still had a baby face and was small don’t know the general public would be kinder

by Anonymousreply 33February 9, 2024 5:43 PM

R30 The reception to Kit almost seems split at sometimes. I do think most are now aware that he looks quite a bit older than he is, and he doesn't really have the babyface that he did in S1. For those that watched S2, the physical transformation really jumped out at them if they weren't following cast stuff during the wait between seasons.

But the coming out scene with Olivia is perhaps the most famous of the entire show thus far. For those that don't watch the show or maybe just watch it casually, the image of him in that scene may be the strongest in their minds, coupled with Kit's own coming out where he did personally underline that he was 18 at the time. DiscussingFilm even used a shot from the Olivia scene in The Wild Robot announcement, though that's not too jarring as a children's animated movie where he may very well pitch himself younger.

All of this to say: In terms of coming out, both because of S1 Nick's big scene and Kit's own story, he's often remembered as younger than he is to highlight the true fuckery of it all. So it makes sense that that's what people are most protective about when it comes to Kit.

by Anonymousreply 34February 9, 2024 5:47 PM

R34 yeah basically I just don’t think kit singularly amongst the cast is given untold shit based on looking older. Ironically, and I know the OG commenter said they weren’t alluding to Joe, I’ve seen people express surprise Joe is over 18 in the exact same tweet they’re calling him hideous so I don’t think knowing kit is only 19 would help. And I want to be very clear this isn’t me trying to insist we should care less about the shit kit gets. It’s just saying that people do not see age as an impediment to ac completely monstrous to young stars

R35 No, you're right. There's actually a queer Twitter account that can be ruthless about how attractive they find celebrities, and I saw him make a vague tweet about how people should stop being so nasty about Joe since he's only nineteen. I think this was the Vogue Self-Portrait picture that blew up because of the Elf bar comparison? Anyway, even that guy had some reservations just based on age alone. But unfortunately, not a lot of people care.

It's funny because being famous is such a common dream when you're growing up, but in this age of social media being so nasty, that dream can become a nightmare on top of the usual pitfalls for child stars and young actors.

by Anonymousreply 38February 9, 2024 6:03 PM

R35 My thing is a lot of people think Joe is the less looked after by the fans and fandom. If someone think it’s Kit, why is it a problem? Realistically, Yaz would be the one but we all have our reasons.

by Anonymousreply 39February 9, 2024 6:25 PM

R39 I want to say something that's completely wrong and that has no basis in reality, why is that a problem is basically what you are saying

Also not saying they "look after" Kit in a decent way either. They are fucking annoying, treat him like a child and then equally seem to think he's their bestie they can lovingly roast. With joe, they just don't give a shit at all one way or the other

by Anonymousreply 40February 9, 2024 6:30 PM

R40 Correction, don't give a shit until he does something that they want to cancel him for while holding him to a higher standard than anyone else in the cast

by Anonymousreply 42February 9, 2024 6:31 PM

R39 and in all seriousness: it’s absolutely yaz. Theres just no world in which a black trans woman isn’t receiving outsized hate even compared to other minorities in the cast. But — and not defending the fandom here, but also calling myself out a bit since I’m also guilty of this — I think a lot of her hate is done more privately than Joe or Kit’s which is why the conversation focuses more on them. I absolutely believe her DMs are fucking disgusting. And her mentioned tweets after Doctor Who were vile, I reported many and bitched about them here. But obvious fandom bias aside I do think how public the hate is versus “private”, so mentions and tweets versus DMs, plays a role

by Anonymousreply 43February 9, 2024 6:34 PM

R39 and my last point is, and genuinely not trying to rant at you because I think it’s fine to disagree, I’ve also never claimed or supported the idea that Joe gets “worse” hate. I think what I’ve said very consistently is the only metric that matters is that it’s very deeply hurt both of them so comparing “Joe gets X number of mean tweets a day and Kit gets Y number” is dumb. So I don’t think your point is best directed at me anyway, since I’ve also relied to people saying Joe gets more hate or who were IMO downplaying the biphobia Kit gets to call that out.

by Anonymousreply 44February 9, 2024 6:36 PM

R41 Then why call him a troll for that? That’s my point though. We should be able to disagree.

R45 it’s a pattern of behaviour. I’ve said it hm, 5 times at this point? And given you like 5 examples beyond this comment. You can disagree but please stop ignoring the shit I’ve said to build your own narrative that I don’t care about kit

by Anonymousreply 46February 9, 2024 6:39 PM

R45 sorry but this is pissing me off. If that was his only comment on the matter fair enough. I’ve listed multiple others. 1. Claiming one day to know nothing about the breakup and opining on it the next. 2. Saying Joe doesn’t have shitty PR just “different goals” and isn’t as strategic as Kit. 3. Saying bash is a good guy and not a clout chaser confusingly right after saying he never liked bash. 4. Saying Joe posted OF Nick to snipe at bash. 5. Now this.

Again, disagree with me, fine. But oversimplifying the shit I’ve said and again the TWO other times I’ve been the first person on these threads to pinpoint a troll in order to imply I’m downplaying kits experience is fucked up.

by Anonymousreply 47February 9, 2024 6:45 PM

R80 I’ll probably wrongly call it now that Tobie and Kit might be the last. If they go right in early May, they can see Will play with Laufey, see Joe in sweeney Todd (presumably not the final performance for obvious reasons), kit can go to the met gala, and then since Joe ends May 5th actually have a few days to really hang out with one another in NYC.

I really wasn’t expecting Yas to be the first to visit him, assuming it’s just a catch up and she may not be at the show with him tonight. How cute though. I think she’s fond of him and the rest of the cast, but is a bit self absorbed so doesn’t really make a conscious effort, but this was nice.

People are probably more freely able to visit him this time around right enough, not like when he was on a set last year which meant nothing of note until after the 6 months.

Maybe the rest of the cast will go when then can sporadically, but travelling to New York is a bit different from if it were London. I’m solidly expecting Kit and Tobie to go and maybe Will. The rest would be a pleasant surprise.

R91 yeah fair. Also a pride thing I think: nothing wrong with not having the money or time for two trips to NYC within a few months, but while I’m sure Joe would be happy to pay for Tobie to come visit as he’s done with his IOM mates, I can get how accepting that from a best friend who’s also a “colleague” is less appealing than from a best friend who’s an actor while you’re a broke student

There's a Conan/Kit truther in Conan's fanbase:

[quote]I think there is a chance Conan’s british ex is Kit Connor (anon because I don’t want to get hate for saying this). The guy in his lonely dancers music video looks almost identical to Kit and is dressed like Kit plus the brunette girl he’s kissing looks identical to that girl Maia Reficco that Kit was dating last year. I saw videos that they were together for halloween last year and Kit had been liking Conan’s pictures for a while then stopped. The rest of the heartstopper cast all follows Conan and we know that Conan spent a lot of time in London last year because he was dating someone there. Conan and Kit are both super private people so it makes sense we never really saw them in public. I know it’s a crazy theory but I thought i’d share because I feel like I shouldn’t be the only one to notice this??

R123 absolute nonsense but love it. Kit stopped liking his pics frequently right when Joe stopped filming which I think we all interpreted as having his favourite slim twink back but sure, it’s a breakup.

R122 hard to say. Theyre definitely the two lead roles. Would assume Pedro is playing the other robot sent to destroy Roz who as he’s dying tells her humans will never stop looking for her, and would assume Stephanie is voicing Chitchat who is Kit’s character’s friend. So could kind of go any way.

R174 I honestly don’t feel invested other than wanting Joe to be amazing, which he has been, but I can see a situation where the person who said she made it her own hadn’t seen the understudies, but was comparing her to Annaleigh. And she has a very different performance from her, but the very similar one to one or both of the under studies. That’s my guess anyway.

I just looked at Jack’s grid. Tobie doesn’t currently follow Jack, but he liked the majority of Jack’s posts last spring. If Joe told Tobie he was working with Jack that could have lead to Tobie not following him but clearly paying attention to his posts. But also, Tobie is thirsty for everyone.

I don't know what Kit is like as a boyfriend, tho it's funny to read about it as a conspiracy theory because I always thought that while Joe wasn't an option because at the time he was with Bash, Conan and Kit would be hot together in a similar style. Still I have a hard time believing they wouldn't have been spotted together at least once if they actually dated for a while.

If only Joe would get rumors about age-appropriate guys instead of old creeps. Speaking of, I hope the old guy wasn't there last night and that means he's fucked off back to the UK. I think I've finally come across his insta and if that's him the descriptions undersold his unattractiveness. Daniel Tweardy-Torres is in a throuple, maybe a certain trio can get inspiration from that and Joe can replace Methuselah with two hot young guys.

R303 Honestly, there are a few reasons I doubt it, but a big one is that Kit is connected to Joe and Louis, who are both connected to Olivia, and that of course loops back to Conan. They did all overlap at that Halloween party from what little we saw of it. Friend groups having exes is not unheard of, but there's dealing with that privately within the group and then there's openly talking about it to media.

Conan said the London guy left him for another guy? I completely believe that Kit has gone to extra lengths to be private about who he's dating, but that'd be insane stealth levels if he swiftly went from Conan to another guy. And that's without considering that the second guy might also be in the public eye.

I think what makes the Conan/Kit thing funny is so much of it tracks while also being hugely unlikely to be true. The Notting Hill references, Conan falling into Kit’s general type, living in London, the Kit to Conan likes. But then the story of this guy dumping him mid flight for another man seems highly unlikely to be Kit, and the mutual friend thing of it all adds another layer.

Anyway I checked and while Conan’s likes on most people’s posts are all over the place, for instance he hasn’t liked a Joe post since October, he did like one of kits posts in September. Which I doubt he’d do if he was upset about being dumped over text in the summer

by Anonymousreply 308February 10, 2024 2:17 PM

R308 Agreed, and I find the Kit and Maia comparisons to be another huge leap since I doubt those relationship timelines would have ever been close enough to matter. At most, it'd be a visual hint for people that like to do deep dives for potential Easter eggs. They're pretty generic looks, though, and I say that with love to Kit and Maia. They're both hot, but those Disney fits aren't supremely unique to them.

R343 not Broadway obviously but he played Hanschen in his theatre school’s Spring Awakening which is a pretty good sized secondary role

R344 yeah I’ve been reading a lot and the “worst” comments have been that he’s amazing but they mildly preferred Gaten, and even many of those have noted that they saw Gaten months into him playing the role opposite Annaleigh as opposed to one week in opposite brand new Sutton, so they’re open to changing their minds. And honestly the number saying he has the best Tobias voice they’ve heard is insanely high. The purists are also happy especially given Aaron that they switched back to the original key for not while I’m around

R344 I’m not positive if he’ll be in another musical as soon as next year just because I think between marvel and likely s4 filming it’ll be tight, plus anything else he may book, but it’s absolutely a very viable path for him generally. His voice is stunning and he’s an incredible actor

Losing it because HStwt started making vague tweets about Nick & Charlie mischaracterization and apparently the biggest debate is whether either of them would be Swifties.

I can't even judge because I feel like Charlie would enjoy Olivia Rodrigo's style, it's actually how I imagine the sound of Sahar's band. But people might avoid that headcanon because of breaking the fourth wall vibes with Joe.

R358 It'd be nice if Tobie got another Netflix project. I have mixed feelings about Isaac's storyline but did see a lot of casual fans moved by it, and a lot of them came out of S1 charmed by Isaac and wanting to know more about him.

It's also a shame the S2 vlogs don't seem to be happening anymore, because I think that could have been another niche for Tobie. Almost a variant on how other actors have photography as a side hobby.

R368 I don't know if Joe and Kit would have teased him about the S2 vlogs during the Lyme Regis lives if that were the case, but you never know. Isaac was so much more involved with the overall group in S2 that Tobie would have had a lot more variety this time. He got to interact with practically everyone, even Cormac in a fan fave scene.

I feel like the main conspiracy theory is the question of how much Bash footage to keep, but I doubt that alone would derail the whole project.

by Anonymousreply 371February 10, 2024 5:39 PM

R371 I doubt the ex would derail the whole thing, but just wondering if there's not a lot footage to begin with since the cast might not have been that eager to be filmed this time around. And some things they just want to keep private among themselves. Add in the question of how much Bash to cut and the strikes, and I can see why they didn't bother.

Can see how it would be weird to see the guys all together having a laugh considering what's happened. Though agree, Netflix might be saving them for S3 but still expect them not to be nearly as long this time.

Speaking of the ex, Yaz was pretty much the last cast member he paid attention to. Assuming she's out too now. RIP

R371 True, like a countdown event towards a S3 release date or just something to celebrate three years since they began filming Heartstopper.

Headcannons about characters are strange sometimes. I only read the books once after watching the show, but isn't the whole idea about them that there's a contrast between the popular jock and the artsy twink? Charlie has posters of The Strokes and Radiohead in his bedroom, it makes little sense that he would he listen to Taylor Swift. But Alice is terrible at making them 3-dimensional in that sense, so we actually know very little about their individual personalities. I may be way off on that.

And I'm willing to be proven wrong, but I'm surprised to read that Tobie said he vlogged a lot when they shot s2. Where did he say that? I'm one of those who thinks he either filmed a few bits here and there and after the break-up they decided to scrap the whole thing, or he didn't actually film anything. The s1 vlogs were overall net positive because it was a special moment, but most people ended up using them to scan the background for clues and analyze the possible secret relationships and cast irl dynamics. S2 filming coincided with the decision of most of the cast to stop sharing stuff on social media, so I struggle to see the incentive for them to vlog bts again after people got so invasive the first time around.

R385 I think people saw him filming at Disney, but they take pictures and video of each other a lot that they will never in a million years share. He never said it, but vaguely remember him liking a comment about it.

And I always though S2 vlogs would be pretty sanitized and short. There was also a lot of shit going on at the time. Probably not in the best mood to share things with fans at the time.

by Anonymousreply 387February 10, 2024 6:37 PM

R385 It's probably a clash of comics canon and show canon, honestly. The show is faithful to the comics but the characters can still have different vibes, so what might fit a comic version of a character might not fit the show version in the same way. This goes for everyone, not just Nick and Charlie. Elle is a big one because her storyline has perhaps been expanded the most.

The Heartstopper yearbook has some profiles with a specific song for each character. As far as Swifties go, I think show!Tara is the only canon Swiftie, she has a Folklore poster in her room. There was heat about this when some Netflix account used Imogen instead of Tara as the Heartstopper character in a Swiftie meme.

As for the vlogs, I think S2 vlogs would absolutely have a different vibe. Still candid moments between scenes, but probably more strictly within the sets/locations and not too much outside of the professional environment. If they did have footage from their downtime, then they'd be more aware of it being seen one day and act accordingly. That said, I know DL would have its paper and pen ready to document any signs of certain things. (This is a self-callout.)

It'd be really fun to see a vlog for the sleepover scenes in episode 1. I doubt the cast actually had to stand there and watch the Nick/Charlie kiss in the doorway, but filming their reactions was probably really funny. Tao's shit-eating grin always reminds me of Will's in that Attitude interview where Joe and Kit talk about the coffee breath.

R417 If anything, I'd guess they were more worried about the heavier scenes that are more strictly about Charlie's mental health. The sex scenes aren't 100% separate from that, but might feel lighter in comparison and more appropriate to joke around about between takes. I'm sure they wanted to get the sex scenes right as well, but just from the way they talk about the scene at the end of S2, you can see they treat that type of serious dialogue-heavy scene with a lot of care. Kit wasn't shy about mentioning bringing in elements of their own relationship, either, because of what they've been through together.

If they're asked about the sex scenes, I expect a lot of nods to the intimacy coordinator but also just: We're comfortable with each other, we'd known each other for nearly 3 years at that point, the show has been building to this so it felt like a natural progression for us, and so on.

Man, even in the Teen Vogue interview we were just discussing, Kit instantly went to "More kissing!" as how he'd describe S2.

R435 It's also gonna be the most mild sex scene in the world. Though I also didn't really love the actual hickey moment scene and thought other scenes were better, so I think some random ass kiss is likely to be more sexual than the actual scene meaning to be is. Fandom is for sure going to say they shouldn't be asked about sex since they might be virgins though

I think the consensus has been he has a gorgeous voice and is a great actor for being so new to the role let alone broadway. Nitpicks are fair and good for growth but I’ve rarely seen so much universal praise for a debut

R438 R164 is the thread. There's also a thread under The possibly Unpopular Opinion of The Aaron/Sutton Debut that has some Joe praise. Saw this on tiktok yesterday, this guy is a pretty big theatre guy on tiktok. He wasn't trashing Aaron, but was complaining about "hot tenors" and key changes taking over broadway for context.

R448 I also think a lot of that plays into self esteem. Not trying to overanalyze him but the fact that his track record seems to be extreme extroverts who for both the current fossil and bash “come on strong” and sort of lovebomb early is something I’ve seen in friends with lower self esteem. And it’s not even that they’re seeing validation or need constant compliments, it’s literally that they think so little of themselves or their looks that things like more subtle flirting and displays of interest they don’t even register because it doesn’t occur to them that guys would be into them. It’s honestly really hard because many of them are amazing guys, and I wish they (including Joe) saw what catches they are and the wide variety of quality men into them

I definitely believe that IOM has a strangely high caliber of amateur theater, because Joe’s voice control is better than most professional trained actors. He definitely had great training as a kid. But also agree Joe takes humility to crazy heights.

by Anonymousreply 456February 10, 2024 10:20 PM

Also going to add to the Joe dating speculation the obvious point that older men who want to date people his age are excellent manipulators. He’s freshly 20, outside the heartstopper set is generally the youngest person on any set he’s worked on, lives alone, and away from his family for most of the year and has since he was 17, and is, unfortunately, in a profession where older people taking advantage of or getting with younger more vulnerable people is not uncommon. And as has been noted on these threads, hasn’t had the ability to stay in one place long enough to develop a really strong community of older people who can give him advice with the benefit of experience. He’s kind of a target, especially given the low self-esteem, for the kind of weirdo who tells him he’s so mature for 20, definitely above his age, stuff like that. He’s extremely intelligent but even smart people get manipulated, especially young ones in this sort of unique position

On the older gay man front it seems like he bonded more with Fisayo and Nima (not sure if Nima is queer) this season, and I’d really like if they could become a bigger part of his life and give him the benefit of their insight

R450 I had the same thought the other day as I was reflecting on what all these guys have in common, especially Lego and Fossil. I hope Joe finds a way to see how amazing and gorgeous he is, and starts hooking up with (or dating) more deserving guys while he's still in his early twenties. I'm glad at least he also has good, successful people like Eric around him. It's why the way social media talked about a 17/18-year-old's appearance when HS came out will forever make my blood boil. Also why Lee's trolling on here calling Joe ugly all the time to this day is inexcusably disgusting.

Btw is there anything sadder than having to move goalposts and bend logic in constant failed attempts at turning Joe's insane career into something negative? Joe makes his Broadway debut singing iconic Sondheim songs age 20 to almost unanimous praise - "anyway, here's why that's terrible news" lmao what a waste of oxygen

There is no way Joe is pursuing these guys. He’s definitely got his age filter set far too broadly on the apps but fucking them is very different to ending up semi living with one. He’s getting love bombed by the kind of older guys who intentionally pursue 20 year olds. Joe does seem like a bit of a flirt but assume others are right - he basically needs to be aggressively pursued to realise someone could actually be into him.

R476 nah Joe and Kit and Tobie are all honestly still gaybies. It’s not me infantalizing them to say that: they should be able to fuck their way through London and NY and have fun but with people their age. Their relationships with older gay men should be like Fisayo: jokes he’s like their uncle, takes them to drag night at gay bars, invites them to his wedding. He doesn’t fuck them and lovebomb them. Joe was 17 when he first read comments mocking how ugly they thought he was. 18 when he got a much larger wave of homophobia and bullying saying he was way uglier than his onscreen boyfriend/best friend and in real life boyfriend. 19 when homophobic fucked up marvel fans were added to the mix and when he experienced a messy breakup.

Charlie looks pretty nervous and like he’s not actually enjoying it and Kit doesn’t look like he’s actually giving him a hickey. He’s also not kissing his neck naturally - he goes in for a single kiss. I know I’m in the minority so I’m not going to shit on anyone who loves it

R488 I like the way you can see Charlie mouthing "Oh my god" as he looks at the door to make sure they won't get caught.

I don't mind the scene but weirdly find some of the stuff outside of the hickey itself to be more charged, like the already mentioned rolling around and kissing beforehand. Also Charlie petting Nick's hair as Nick touches his waist before pulling him down to bed, how rough Nick sounds when he mentions Charlie tasting like toothpaste or asks if it's okay to keep going, their embarrassed laughs afterwards about Nick losing the challenge. Similarly, when they do get actual sex scenes, I think they'll nail (for lack of better term) a lot of the charged scenes leading up to it where they want to go further but don't in that moment for whatever reason. S2 really proved that they know how to have fun with those scenes where they're interrupted or trying to kiss in secret or whatever. Chocolate bar scene for president, as we know.

R497 I don’t mind the headcanon that Charlie or Nick are autistic but I think they often cross the line from headcanon, which is your own personal read on the situation, to basically being upset people don’t agree it’s canon. Saw a Twitter exchange a few weeks ago where someone tweeted a hot take that Nick was an asshole in Nick and Charlie and they hope Alice changed it (I agree fully). One example they gave was him ignoring Charlie texting him for two weeks just because the photos he was sending showed up as black boxes and pointed out clearly Charlie was still trying to contact him regardless and Nick shouldn’t have ignored that. I think Alice wrote them both as unlikable and Nick as basically a dickhead in that book so hope she changes it but that’s an aside

Someone else replied that actually autistic people don’t always make those logical connections innately and it’s ableist to say they’re bad people as a result. Ok but like, nick is not canonically autistic so what’s the point there

by Anonymousreply 507February 11, 2024 12:03 AM

The build-up was really well acted but I almost skipped the hickey moment when I watched it because as soon as Kit went for his neck it looked so poorly staged/choreographed that it made me cringe. It looked awkward af and it was obvious nothing was happening.

I know this is an unpopular opinion, but I'm torn with their kissing scenes because they have incredible chemistry and some kisses feel really natural and relaxed (way more than other "sexy" shows actually) but overall in my view there's a persistent difference between Kit really going for it every time while Joe tends to hold back, that sometimes takes me out of the scene. At times Joe seems a bit too aware of keeping his lips as closed as possible, going for the top of Kit's upper lip, etc. I was surprised that Thackeray and Euros didn't try (or manage) to fix those little details to make the kissing more even throughout S2. At first I thought maybe it was an acting choice, but it makes no sense because it's only limited to the mouth - if Joe was trying to play Charlie's hesitation or insecurity, it'd be expressed beyond his lips imo.

I'm very curious to see what happened with S3, having way more experience with intimacy scenes and with filming under such different irl circumstances. Was Bash the issue all along? Guess we'll see later this year (half joking)

To me it looks in a lot of the kissing scenes like Joe is taking one of Kit’s lips half into his mouth which may be why it looks like he’s tightly closing his lips to you? If you watch the scenes you can see he starts off parting his lips around one of kits at first basically every time. I just rewatched to make sure I was being fair and yeah, still completely disagree that “Kit really going for it every time while Joe tends to hold back” or that Joe is in any way an actor who takes me out of their scenes.

R516 I think he wasn’t an asshole for having a fight, he was an asshole for the way he handled it. If you’re pretty sober leaving your wasted boyfriend at a party because of a fight and you don’t check in on him the day after, then ignore his texts for a week after not speaking dor 2 just because his photos aren’t sending right you’re a dick. I think the messy hurt fight followed by a misunderstanding that lasted the weekend could’ve been fine and realistic, the way he handled it overall was shit. Something like idk, random example: tao blocking Nick’s number on Charlie’s phone for what’s meant to be just that night because Charlie keeps trying to drunk dial while sobbing, forgetting to unblock without telling him, and then each thinking the other blocked them when their respective texts don’t go through the next day before they make up Monday. Just think the fact that Alice made Charlie be the one to apologize when Nick was kind of a dick about it all too, instead of something more mutual, also sucks

R508 Do you have a kiss in mind? That’s interesting. I do think it might be because they’re letting them go for it in S2. Maybe Joe was more nervous. Kisses like the one at prom where they’re with their friends are really relax and passionate imo.

R518 I mean I also strongly disagree with the comment but trying to give benefit of the doubt that he didn’t mean what he strongly implied, that kit is the better actor

by Anonymousreply 521February 11, 2024 12:16 AM

I still maintain the hottest scene in S2 was the pillow fight scene in ep 6. Charlie pinning Nick’s wrists, Charlie grinding on Nick’s dick while Nick pulled him closer, Charlie calling it payback and how breathless a Nick looks when he blinks. So fucking hot. (Let’s not talk about the cringy dialogue that comes after.)

R521 when you’re talking about Thackery and Euros needing to pick it up and fix it, how Kit commits more and how it takes you out of the show it’s just saying Joe’s shit. Pretty straightforward

Just a reminder to people on this thread that as we’ve also said about Twitter fans, you can compliment your fav (ex: say you love how much kit goes for it) without shitting on the other (ex: saying Joe is way too restrained and “takes you out” of the scenes because his having a boyfriend at the time means he can’t act as well)

by Anonymousreply 525February 11, 2024 12:19 AM

R516 They're definitely going to have to ditch Nick's phone breaking down or whatever it was. Charlie will give Nick a photo album to fill with pictures in S3, so I feel like Alice will change their big Nick & Charlie resolution to Nick leaving the album at Charlie's house by accident and Charlie filling the last pages left with more recent pictures or something. In the novella, I think it was a digital camera? I don't know, maybe Kit would be into Nick getting a proper camera.

R511 I said it in a recent thread, their final kiss of S2 in Nick's doorway is so good from Joe's end in particular. He totally looks like he's in a trance while kissing Nick, can barely get his words out afterwards. And a lot of their S2 kisses have them smiling through it, which maybe doesn't look physically perfect but adds to the charm IMO.

I also feel this scene with the recharging neck kiss ended up more popular than the hickey scene.

I'm of the mind that Nick wasn't an asshole, just didn't handle the fight in the best way (they were both drunk and they're both young, so understandable), and I like that Alice allowed him to be a bit messy. Gave him and the relationship layers.

by Anonymousreply 527February 11, 2024 12:20 AM

Or actually, maybe Nick wasn't drunk? I should re-read it, I guess, but I don't remember either of them being assholes. Just insecure and not properly communicative.

by Anonymousreply 528February 11, 2024 12:21 AM

R527 yeah to be very clear: I think he was a mild asshole in the fight but in a very teenage way. They both were. That’s fine. My point is then ignoring your boyfriend for weeks on end even as he tries to make amends IS fucked and yeah a dick move.

Anyway the point of me bringing that up originally which has been derailed is not me shitting on Nick; it’s saying when someone had the opinion he was a dick in the book they got called ableist to autistic people when Alice has outright said she’s happy with headcanons but never intended any of them to be autistic

by Anonymousreply 529February 11, 2024 12:23 AM

R519 I relate to Nick more. I thought Charlie was being unfair bottling up his emotions and lashing out. He expected Nick to read his mind. Overall though, can agree that the aftermath doesn’t make sense for their characters. She needs to rewrite that.

by Anonymousreply 530February 11, 2024 12:23 AM

R530 eh agree to disagree. When you’re sober, your boyfriend is wasted, two of his best friends have just broken up, and he lashes out because he’s afraid you’ll do the same, I think screaming at him is probably the wrong move. Dont think you need to be a mind reader to get that maybe that combo of factors is upsetting him. But again, it’s the after the fight shit and the fact that the apology ISNT MUTUAL, it’s just Charlie making all the amends with Nick ignoring him, that’s shitty

by Anonymousreply 531February 11, 2024 12:26 AM

R528 I think Charlie was a bit tipsy, also really handsy with Nick in front of other people at the party, whispered in his ear that they should find a bathroom and hook up. I remember part of their fight included Nick very confused because Charlie would go from closed off in talking to Nick, to trying to get off with him. If S4 goes there, it should be a good parallel to the S3 kitchen scene when Charlie is tipsy/handsy. That scene is also about Nick moving away to uni.

Honestly, it's even kind of cool symmetry that their big fight happens at another Harry party, though I know from Alice's perspective, the Nick & Charlie fight was written before she wrote their first kiss at Harry's party.

by Anonymousreply 532February 11, 2024 12:28 AM

R531 I mean being drunk doesn’t get you a hall pass to project your insecurities and both were stressed in general. Maybe it’s because I’m a fire sign but that shit would annoy me. 2 weeks in hardly a breakup in my eyes. She really needs to work through that. But also she made Nick too perfect so it’s norma fans have this reaction when he acts “out of character”.

by Anonymousreply 533February 11, 2024 12:32 AM

I think from reading others comments (more “pro nick” and mine) here’s my issue which I think I’ve written very unclearly so my bad: it’s not that I mind Alice letting Nick be flawed. Him and Charlie having a bad fight because they’re both a little tired, drunk, scared for long distance, and accidentally poking one another’s insecurities makes total sense, and I think even the screaming fight where they make each other cry and nick storms out is fine and a bit sympathetic to both.

It’s that imo Alice doesn’t really then make it clear that they’re BOTH flawed and this is complex. We here are saying it makes Nick flawed but the issue is that’s not how she presents it, it’s that Charlie is the one who needs to make amends. There isn’t a lot of remorse from Nick’s side or understanding how he mishandled it. It’s them both waking up the morning after devastated, mutually avoiding for two weeks, and then Charlie putting in literally all of the legwork to reconcile. I don’t mind them mutually being pricks to one another in a fight or even the temporary breakup, totally normal: I don’t like that only Charlie is the bad guy who needs to make up for it

R533 no offense but you’re expecting too much from a wasted 16 year old who just saw his two best friends break up and is terrified for his own relationship. I never said Nick is some awful person; I could just as easily say to you that Nick not appreciating how Charlie snapped doesn’t give him a hall pass to scream at and abandon his drunk boyfriend when he’s sober and then ghost him. I think they both fucked up in a way I could sympathize with but I hated the post fight writing.

by Anonymousreply 536February 11, 2024 12:34 AM

R533 I kind of hope they keep Nick lashing out at Tao after the fight, even though his narrative thought that he never liked Tao doesn't hold up with show canon. But show!Nick is incredibly patient and kind with Tao from the start, and it could be fun to see him finally crack even when Tao doesn't necessarily deserve it. I suspect S3 will keep breaking down the idea that Nick is nothing but a perfect boyfriend, though, and I mean that in a good way.

by Anonymousreply 537February 11, 2024 12:35 AM

R534 I know Alice has said that Vol 6 won't 100% adapt Nick & Charlie, just like Vol 4 didn't 100% adapt Solitaire. But I wouldn't be surprised if Alice does take the opportunity to do some rewrites of that arc, if not fully in Vol 6, then definitely S4.

by Anonymousreply 538February 11, 2024 12:38 AM

My overall point was not “Charlie was right, Nick was wrong”: it’s that Alice actually continued feeding into the narrative that Nick is the perfect boyfriend who needs to put up with all this shit Charlie throws at him when she makes them BOTH assholes in the fight (which I’m fine with) but then makes Charlie the only one to work at fixing it, implying he solely was at fault. It pisses me off that it’s characterized as such in the fanbase and the book doesn’t help

by Anonymousreply 541February 11, 2024 12:41 AM

R541 I think the disagreement between us is fine in that it shows I think the complexity of the fight: neither is really in the right or in the wrong. Nick should’ve had more empathy and not talked nonstop about how excited he was for basically leaving his boyfriend, Charlie shouldn’t have bottled up and lashed out. It’s the aftermath that fucks me up because it doesn’t present it as “we’re two people who love one another, both fucked yo a bit, feel bad and want to come back together”. It was just one more instance of the “Charlie is a burden on perfect Nick Nelson” thing

by Anonymousreply 544February 11, 2024 12:48 AM

I do like a little miscommunication trope, it's so, so, so overdone but gets me every time. That being said, I think in Nick and Charlie it was out of character in terms of the TV show, haven't fully read the comics but I assume Alice has written them one way in Nick and Charlie and changed their characterisation through the adaptations.

As someone said upthread, she may adapt it for volume 6 and then there will be some tweaks during the show if there's another season. As long as it's done well, I don't mind. I'm sure Joe and Kit would kill it either way!

by Anonymousreply 545February 11, 2024 12:51 AM

I absolutely think that Joe gives it his all in the kissing scenes too, maybe Kit is just a bit more into it idk. I am curious as to what scenes they mean when they say that though, to be fair they kiss a lot so maybe one or two aren't as electric as the others?

by Anonymousreply 546February 11, 2024 12:53 AM

They both do apologize to each other even if Charlie does all the work to get them there, but the 'oops I dropped my phone and can't see the pictures you sent so I just ignored it' is stupid . Think they can completely skip that part of it and just go with Charlie giving the pictures to Nick. i don't really mind someone having to make the first move to end the argument, but it should be multiple steps

by Anonymousreply 549February 11, 2024 12:55 AM

R511 I agree they both sell it really well, but in some scenes - and again, strictly talking about their mouths - I think you can tell Kit tends to go for it more than Joe. In S2 the goodbye kiss at Charlie's and the famous chocolate scene are examples of what I'm saying. For S1, the rain scene and the photo booth kiss come to mind. Solid scenes, chemistry and body language is all there, but the way Joe uses his lips doesn't fully match Kit, who seems to be the one leading most kisses btw. I can see the "intimacy acting" from Joe in those more than in other scenes. I don't know what's at play, maybe he just had a more self-conscious day or whatever.

R515 haha no, that's not me. I love Kit but Joe is actually my favorite actor in the show, and I think he conveys Charlie's emotions beautifully. And agree about the chemistry and body language - it's off the charts.

The recharging scene and the park scene come to mind as really great S2 kissing scenes so I think it's just the slight inconsistency, since other kisses are so good. And probably if instead of watching the show several times I had only watched it once like normal people, I wouldn't have noticed it lol But I get it that I'm on my own with this nit-picky opinion so I will shut up about it.

R546 they said it was an across the board issue that took them out of scenes which is tbh a ridiculous claim, but whatever makes them happy. Again, single Kit out for praise in some scenes, that’s totally ok! I’ve said for instance that Joe plays Charlie insanely lovable, if he said Kit sells the hell out of the kissing very fair, he does. But posting a long comment about how the director and intimacy director need to work with Joe, how maybe he couldn’t act as well due to his bf, how he doesn’t sell it like Kit, and how he takes you out of scenes (what, that and not Alice’s shit writing?) is fucking rude ngl

by Anonymousreply 553February 11, 2024 12:57 AM

R545 You're right, Alice has actually been pretty upfront about how both Solitare and Nick & Charlie were written before even the Heartstopper comics were concieved, let alone their characterization in the show. I can appreciate the honesty in not acting like they've always had some mastermind vision with everything aligning perfectly. The show already rewrites the comics, I don't see there being any ego preventing some tweaks of the Nick & Charlie storyline. Miscommunication can definitely be great when done well, and I do think the end of Vol 5 already sets in motion that a) Nick is in absolute pieces about the long distance and thinks of himself as less confident/independent than Charlie, and b) Charlie is going to be doing his very best to be vocally supportive of Nick and Leeds, even as he's also in pieces about the long distance. Some classic crossed wires as they're both trying to support each other's independence.

If it was written that Nick was also going to try to make amends and was about to call Charlie when Charlie texts him first, absolutely. Someone needs to clear the air first. But it’s so one sided and that makes no sense for their characters. I hope Alice writes it for the show as Nick also deciding to reach out

R556 eh I won’t weigh in on that. Someone doesn’t have to be your fav to not shit on them totally regardless. I have my thoughts on some acting choices and acting overall on the show here but I think it’s a phenomenally talented young cast so I keep it to praising what I see as the best bits and not shitting on them regardless

R550 again, totally disagree with you but you’re entitled to your opinion, but maybe work on wording things in a way less cunty way that shits on one of them when it is so completely unneeded.

Anyway, because I really love Joe and think he killed s2, I’ll shout out that he sells the hell out of not believing his luck with Nick. We’ve all talked about the intimacy and sweetness of him giggling into the kissing scenes he’s apparently so bad in, but even things like the way he smiles into the mirror and looks breathless in the recharging scene or looks awestruck when Nick comes out. It’s so so fucking compelling

by Anonymousreply 561February 11, 2024 1:08 AM

Putting aside my ire now. Regarding the Charlie and Nick fight - I kind of hope Alice doesn’t change it. Even perfect boyfriends have their times when they fuck it up. The fight read true of two boys in a new and stressful time in their relationship. A lot of relationships break up for exactly that reason - one goes away to uni. Both were kind of dicks but I read it as Nick knowing on some level they may not make it and being angry when he has to actually confront that.

by Anonymousreply 562February 11, 2024 1:10 AM

I always thought it was clear Charlie was more nervous in the kissing scenes (especially in public) because Nick wasn’t out? Is that what the guy is talking about? The kiss/grinding when they’re alone, at the hotel is completely different in terms of energy.

R560 I don't know if he was trying to connect it to the earlier convo about whether JoeKit's chemistry will change now that Bash is out of the picture.

R562 I think most are fine with the fight staying relatively the same, just want the aftermath to be written better. Even just in terms of technology, the technology is outdated because it's more early 2010s than 2020s. Like, for reference, Charlie is Tumblr famous in the novella and his followers send him asks about him and Nick. That's likely hitting the cutting room floor, just like the show has them using Insta instead of Facebook.

by Anonymousreply 566February 11, 2024 1:13 AM

I also have a chip on my shoulder about Joe, but no need for a little comment about him looking to me more self conscious during a few of the kissing scenes prompting people to jump down my throat when you can read all my posts so far have been praising Joe and defending him from the Bash troll.

If anything, my comment was more a critique on the director and the intimacy coordinator than anything else, because, again, even when the popular opinion is to say that Kit's the best one in the show, I actually prefer Joe. Like I said at the beginning, I'm also surprised that apparently they didn't take an extra 5 mins to look at a monitor where you can tell no hickey is happening in order to modify the angle or Kit's choreography slightly and make it more believable.

We may disagree on the perception of how Joe moves his mouth during some of the kissing scenes for whatever reason (Bash mention was a fucking joke) but we're on the same side, people. I prefer Joe, I love both of them, and their chemistry is lightning in a bottle.

R562 The fight was perfectly fine. Just change up the resolution a bit.

I think Nick does think that on some level (or at least Kit's Nick will) since I don't buy the idea that Nick just has no clue what's wrong with Charlie so he has no fault because he can't read his mind. He knows Charlie doesn't want to hear about about uni , And Charlie isn't exactly wrong that Nick thinks it'll be the best and most exciting experience of his life

I think it'll work better in the show here they are more developed anyway

by Anonymousreply 570February 11, 2024 1:16 AM

I think it actually may work better in the context of the show too given one thing Alice has said is that she plans to focus s4 around Nick creating his own identity outside Charlie too. My thoughts on 2/4 seasons being Nick centric and only 1 Charlie (s1 was split) aside, I can see that adding to the conflict.

Nick having these internal thoughts that he’s too dependent on Charlie and needs to create his own identity but not sharing them much; Charlie not knowing this is a struggle for him because they haven’t discussed it and feeling it as Nick pulling away; part of Nick’s excitement about Leeds specifically and uni generally being that he’s not just “the rugby captain” and can try new things without fear, be out from day one, etc; and him waxing rhapsodic about how amazing it’ll be without realizing that his desire to be as well rounded and self fulfilled as Charlie is coming off to Charlie as him pulling away to dump him before uni. One of the more understandable and realistic misunderstanding tropes

The one thing I hope Alice changes MOST in the fight which is overall fine is drunk Charlie asking Nick to go hook up in the bathroom and being upset he says no.

by Anonymousreply 581February 11, 2024 1:33 AM

S1 was not nearly as close to Charlie centric as s2 was to Nick centric. Think Charlie got 3 min more screentime in s1, and Nick 14 more in s2. The biggest plotline by a mile in s2 was Nick coming out; I don’t think a Charlie storyline dominated s1 the same way. It was truly about them coming together and I’d actually say if anything Nick got the bigger more resonant scenes (googling his sexuality, coming out to his mother). It was split. S2 Nick was the main character. S3 I presume it’ll be Charlie. Then s4 ideally she splits again for the last season

by Anonymousreply 582February 11, 2024 1:36 AM

I was just going through the first episode and the camera closing in on Nick's smiley face on Charlie's hand as Charlie's completely zoned out during Ben's half-assed apology and kiss...I hate it here but really good direction, cinematography, editing. Insane acting from Joe in his breakout role.

R581 I genuinely love how S1 opens with Charlie as our PoV character, then gradually blooms out into Nick's perspective as Charlie helps Nick become less repressed. The first episode is honestly really great and compact. I'm thankful for the binge format since the episodes are so short but if it had aired once a week, this ending sequence would have had the people in shambles. Does a lot with so little.

Even Twitter fangirls who spend their time imagining ways to make Charlie storylines about Nick and always want more of him say s1 was an even split. You can’t compare a 3 min difference in screentime where Nick gets two incredible heavy solo scenes without Charlie, the coming out and the sexuality realization, to season 2 with a 14 minute disparity and a heavy emphasis on Nick’s coming out with Charlie’s mental health mentioned in the last 5 min of the entire season in a scene they share. Season 3 will be about Charlie. It’s weird to pretend s1 was.

R586 were very clearly not going to agree and you are the singular person I’ve ever seen insist s1 was as inclined towards Charlie as s2 was towards Nick. Most descriptions of s1 say the primary storylines are Nick realizing his sexuality (Nick 1, Charlie 0) and Nick and Charlie dating (Nick 2, Charlie 1). Most descriptions of s2 just outright say the major focus is on Nick coming out and describe Charlie’s storyline as supporting him. His mental health is mentioned with the b plotlines. Based on the above I could actually make a better argument that S1 is ALSO Nick centric, but I’m not. Just s2. And s3 will be Charlie.

R586… are you seriously ignoring Nick realizing his sexuality, Nick coming out, Nick making a grand gesture in front of the school, nicks speech to Imogen to try to say he had nothing except episode 6? Weird

R588 The whole story in season 1 is coming from Charlie. I don’t know how you can think it’s split when the only thing we know about Nick is that he realizes he’s bi and his mom is accepting. It’s never going to be only about Charlie just like season 2 wasn’t only about Nick. They’re both main characters. S1 is definitely more about Charlie.

R590 I tell you again no one else has ever mentioned this opinion and I strongly disagree. You do you though. Also idk why the larger points I’m making about how Alice could improve certain storylines are always ignored to zero in on one comment so someone can idk, say fictional character nick Nelson is abandoned by Alice and s1 ignored him

gotta ask is this the same guy who coined the phrase low blows to nick nelson who is now insisting he had no storyline in season 1 because charlie talked to his teacher once about his crush

Episode 1 of s1 was definitely about Charlie. By the time we get to episode 8, the show has shifted to being about Nick. The POV character gradually changes from Charlie to Nick but that change definitely happens.

I honestly don’t even think s3 will be super focused on Charlie. He’ll have a larger storyline for s3, but I’m still expecting their screen time to be very even.

A lot of fans like have Nick be the main character of the show, even if Charlie is the main character in the comics. Netflix is not going to sideline Kit in any noticeable way.

R592 I'm sure. Ask anyone what S1 about and they aren't going to say Charlie.

R591 I haven’t seen anyone apart from the people in the fandom, look at minutes on screen and things like that. S1 reviews definitely talked a lot about Charlie.

R595 you know who else s1 reviews talked a lot about? This guy named nick. The coming out scene was the most discussed by a mile. Thus me saying it was… equal…

R595 It's 3 more minutes

This is a dumb argument even for me and DL. I will never agree with you that s1 was Charlie centric, you will never agree with me, let’s move on and engage with the substance of my comments rather than nitpicking

R596 Disagree and Charlie is my favorite character.

R599 don’t really care who your fav is? I disagree with you as I’ve said idk 6 times and won’t change my mind so why the fuck continue arguing frantically
