oh it wasnt a passage, just when blossom started shouting at brick asking what he did to her she mentioned cindy called a friend crying? idk sorry!!
Oh! No worries, anon, you’re right! I see what you mean haha sorry, I didn’t catch that. That’s my bad!!
My read into that part is Cindy crying because Brick had rejected her and ended up ruining her so-far-wonderful prom night. He kissed her, kind of inferred that they were to do ~*things*~ and…ended it there. Probably dropping her off at her place after being really…despondent. She realized it wasn’t going to go anywhere. He just kinda played her.
I was thinking Cindy cried over a broken heart ;;;;
it’s why her interactions with Brick after that point were really one-sided. She clung to Brick during the school shooting fiasco and kind of approached him again, thinking, you know…that he changed his mind afterwards. But he really didn’t.
hello sorry if this a dumb question but i'm very confused on the cindy situation in chapter four? i'm going through a reread and i'm still not really sure what happened? brick said he'd only kissed her, but then why was she crying? maybe i'm just bad at making inferences, but i'm just super confused! thanks!
where was Cindy crying? I’m going through chapter four, and I haven’t read a passage about Cindy crying.
I often do little “exercises” in my head where I think of either a situation or a line and then imagine how each character would respond to it. This particular instance was heavily influenced by my devouring of the first season of Scandal…
Hey guys! sorry I’ve been AWOL for a while. I just wanted to update everyone that I am in my last semester of college, and I’m in the middle of production for my thesis film. I apologize for not keeping up with discussions or asks for the time being.
I hope everyone is having a great February so far quq
Because of ppgz I think of Blossom being really good at tricks with a yoyo and the first trophy she ever won was a yoyo competition one and she still plays with her yoyo when she has free time
I remember how sbj and blogmod said that the Blues are very underrated. I think it's because the lack of tension and conflict isn't there much anymore. I mean, it was first there, as we can remember, and I do love how Boomer's shaped, and how Bubbles is protective of him. But really, I'm kind of wondering IF there will be any conflict/tension between them in the future again? I mean, MTH is long from being over, after all. Just a speculation because I did enjoy the conflict between the Blues.
oooh yeah, anon. the most recent chapter is pretty rife with possibilities about what could go wrong with the Blues’ relationship. If anything, I feel like that little hiccup with Boomer and Bubbles in chapter 9 was just the tip of the iceberg for their issues.
The issue with Bubbles’s morality versus Boomer’s inclination towards doing-whatever-he-wants is a hurdle they still need to work over. It’s not prevalent that it’s the major issue right now, but it’s one of their first conflicts that was set up way before they started going out. And I believe the issue is big enough to pop up over and over again.
The other variable is Boomer’s insecurity about not taking care of himself. We saw a glimpse of it in chapter 9, but Bubbles—
(lol hilarious tangent i’m trying to look for the specific part, and the word “stupid” appears 30 times in chapter 9)
—is able to gently coax him out of his growing rage. If left uncapped, Boomer could fly off the handle and have the potential to hurt a lot of people because of his feelings. (Aaaaaaaaand that’s where the Blues parallel steps in. Bubbles’s and Boomer’s true power is unveiled by their emotions…although I believe Boomer operates on a more self-preservation level (don’t hurt her they’re mine/they’re important to me/i dont’ know what i’d do if i had to live without them) and Bubbles on a more selfless plane.)
I mention that last point because there’s still a chance that Boomer is gonna go in a rage and Bubbles won’t be there to hold him back—or that Bubbles might not be enough to stop him.
