my friend who does not know JATP guesses JATP characters and their personalities
“Felix- unashamedly is invested in the Real Housewives drama. threatens to fight sexists and cat callers. poor depth perception. only owns 1 jacket but still gets complimented by strangers for his style”
“Madison Reyes, i only know this cause you TALK ABOUT HER EVERY OTHER DAY. her necklace says Julie but let’s ignore that, maybe Julie is her girlfriend because this woman is absolutely not heterosexual. her name is Melany and everyone wants to be her friend. she owns 40 different phone cases. bedazzles all of everything. stuffed animal collector and proud”
“BOOBOO STEWART OMG. this character is named Henry and if i’m wrong then no i’m not. he does free lance art. is definitely gay. shops at pacsun but tells people that he doesn’t shop at pacsun. people know that he shops at pacsun. he cannot hide the pacsun. stop lying about pacsun, Henry, it’s okay, no one is judging you. probably nice to everyone but will judgementally gay stare at you if you are rude”
“is this Julie? one of them has to be Julie, so i’m guessing that. this is julie. mhm. and do i spot a fellow lesbian??? her earrings confirm my suspicions￼. my gaydar is ringing. hates everyone except, like, 2 people. those two people are her girlfriend and Felix. her girlfriend is named Melany. Julie likes painting rocks and pinning blankets to her bedroom ceiling. she has 5 different colored converse”
“Terrance. Terrance does not know how to flirt with women, but he tries, and we are proud of him for it. definitely gives off the most approachable vibes ever. super open. emotionally competent (?). will bake you brownies without an explanation as to why. likes ￼elevator music and finger guns”
“was i wrong? was i wrong and Melany is actually dating this man? because no person looks at someone like THAT without being so obviously in love with them. you go Melany. got him simping as fuck. as you should, queen. his name is Jared and he likes skateboarding and reading. he’s a weirdo. he doesn’t fit in and he doesn’t want to fit in. look at his hat. he’s weird. did you get the reference? please tell me you got the reference otherwise i’m embarrassed”
“this girl would be so mean to me and i would take every last second of it with a smile on my face. she could purposefully trip me to the ground and i would kiss her boot. i love her. she is named Emma and she’s probably very mean to Terrance, poor boy. anyways, she likes glitter, participated in the mustache trend of 2013 and deeply regrets it, and wakes up at 4am every morning so she has time to get her life together.”
“this is Benjamin. Benjamin looks like he’s been through it and smiling through the pain. it’s okay ben, you look fabulous, get a therapist and you’ll be great.”
“Emerson. respectful king. he looks so nice. might be straight and if he is i just know that he is SUCH a good ally. he and Terrance are best friends. he probably ￼plays baseball”
“YOU DIDNT TELL ME THAT CARLOS PONCE WAS IN THIS SHOW????”

everyone take a moment and think about the fact that
julie and the phantoms has now won awards from the television academy. a little netflix original show that has only had one singular season and has a target audience of younger people and is a musical has won mtv awards, telltale awards, and literal daytime emmys associated with the television academy.
this show, no matter how it's treated by netflix, is truly a marvel. no matter how frustrated we are, at least others see the beauty in this amazing project and the wonderful people who put their hearts and souls into it!!!

Sometimes I think back to the expectations I had during when I was first watching Jatp and I’m just flabbergasted. Like to be fair the way that it just constant broke my expectations, proved them wrong constantly could be why I love it so much. Since I went in with those expectations and proved them wrong it made me love it so much more bc they did something different.
Even before I started it, I had looked up like the cast’s insta’s and stuff before watching it just bc I was curious and I had looked on Owen’s and saw this picture:
And I remember going “Hmm... a female lead and 3 male leads... hmmmmm... bound to be a love triangle here” granted I did know that Alex is gay going into it but that even still made me go “Ah, the other two are definitely going to be in a love triangle for main character” even more.
I think about that now and it is so strange to think about given how I know how Reggie and Luke are and it’s just so weird now. There are just all these tropes that have been set up by media that you just go into Jatp being like “Oh I know how this is gonna go” but then it doesn’t go that way and you’re just so surprised.
During when I was watching (for the first time) I was just saying to myself how I thought it was about to go bc of these tropes I had in my brain that we’re soooo used to seeing. But then, none of those happened and shocked me so much.
A show where mean girl isn’t just mean to main character for the sake of it? A show where mean girl’s boyfriend has a spin? A show where there’s not just an LGBTQ+ character just so they can say they have an LGBTQ+ character? Etc. etc.
You just go in with all these expectations of tropes that we’ve been conditioned to see in media and then when Jatp breaks those it’s so cool to watch. Then that means that you can’t guess what’s going to happen and it makes you so invested to see what actually does happen
