gotta say, i’m really loving all of us who have quickly realized how ~fandom~ despises/ignores Michaela but idolizes Connor without a second thought. that’s what most fandoms have become and it looks like there are quite a few of us who aren’t gonna have the bullshit anymore. Everyone wants to talk about representation but they really only mean gay characters. that’s great but let’s turn the spotlight on characters of color.
let’s look at Annalise the fucking badass. let’s look at Wes, someone who has surprised us more than once and will probably continue to surprise us. let’s look at Oliver, a man who isn’t gonna let a hot ass guy walk all over him. let’s look at Michaela, a stunning and intelligent student who is actually Hermione Granger. i’m pretty sure it wouldn’t be a reach to see Hermione talk to Ron the way Michaela talked to Aiden. but Hermione is cherished and Michaela is not. hell, let’s even talk about Laurel. she might be white passing but the actress is Mexican. i’m really interested in learning more about Laurel in the next episode. she seems extremely calm during the murder and i dig it. so let’s talk about that. i’m not interested in seeing a good ass show be spoiled with this “omg my favorite gay!!!” bullshit while other important, interesting characters are brushed to the side. nah.
