lexi and fez at the corner store:
an obsessive frame-by-frame breakdown
FIRST of all, I just want to talk about how adorable these two are. Like just LOOK AT THEM.
I feel like no one else has really SEEN Lexi the way Fez does and she's just so giggly and bubbly and Fez is all smiling and laughing it's so fucking adorable and anyone who says otherwise is just plain wrong.
NOW, let's get to the corner store scene.
Like... LOOK AT FEZ'S EYES JUST LIGHT UP. I swear I have never seen this manz so awake in his life. Also Lexi worked up the courage to blast hyperpop, put on this adorable outfit, and bike all the way to his store to come see him. Season 1 Lexi would have never.
And just look at how HAPPY Lexi looks to see him. This is also just some color theory BS but she chose to wear red lipstick, a color she rarely wears. It also matches with the neon background of the fridge behind her. I just thought this was cool since red is like the color of intensity, romance, and love. It's clearly the focal point in this scene.
But listen... the MOMENT she sees Faye her heart immediately just drops. Her entire smile vanishes and she just looks so defeated. She automatically makes the assumption that Fez and Faye are together.
She is just in such disbelief that someone could actually SEE her. And the moment she finally builds up this courage to SAY something, to make a move, it all comes crashing down. It is almost a form of self-sabotage. Her insecurities are taking over again, and she feels stupid and like she made a mistake for even coming to see Fez.
She then shuts down the entire encounter by saying she "just came to get a drink" instead of being truthful and just allowing her feelings to be known. Also the way Fez's smile IMMEDIATELY disappeared when she said those words UGHH.
I know the show is trying to make this a slow burn romance type beat but come ONNN they deserve to be happy. Anyways, they are the only two people in this show with common sense and I am rooting for them.
ALSO. Can we just talk about the beautiful, cinematic PARALLELS of this masterfully crafted moment with Lexi looking at Cal enter the store:
Juxtaposed to the same exact shot of Fez when Nate walked in during Season 1.

Elliot x reader. Rue x reader (platonic) Jules x reader (platonic
Elliot and his gf hotbox his room for Rue's first hotbox (idk this is my first imagine idk how I feel writing ab Elliot)
Smoke pours out of Elliot's window as it swings open. Rue and Elliot's coughs filling the previously silent room. The cool fresh air outside soaks in your lungs as you stand on Elliot's window seal recovering from the hotbox. You take deep breaths some are stolen by coughs as your lungs scream for the fresh air. Your head feels harm and the familiar high of weed stings your body. Honestly the best fucking feeling ever.
"Dude that was awesome," Rue gasps out between breaths.
She lays on Elliot's bed. A goofy smile takes over her face. At Rue's feet, on the other end of his bed, laid Elliot. His bloodshot eyes watch you. He watches your chest rise and fall with each breath you take. The way you lean out his window. The fresh air kissing your flushed skin.
The blunt, resting in his fingers, nearly goes out from him looking a little too long. You leaned down and steal it from him. You bring it up to your lips and hit it. The cherry burning bright in the dark room again. The smoke fills your lungs before you blow it out the window. The harsh smoke stinging in your chest again.
Before you can pass the blunt to Rue, Jules bursts in the door.
"I can fucking smell you guys down the road," She announces.
"I'm sure it always smells between me and (Y/N)," Elliot comments sending a knowing look your way.
A smirk rests on his face. You nod agreeing that weed was definitely your drug of choice.
Jules rolls her eyes and takes the blunt when you offer it to her. She joins the party casually making conversation with the three of you.
Before you know it the blunt is gone and Rue's phone is ringing.
'' Oh fuck. It's my mom," She stands quickly grabbing her jacket. She slides it on and slides her shoes on, "Jules. Bike home with me please."
Jules nods and gives you a quick hug before leaving behind Rue.
Elliot sits up and his fingers are sliding over his guitar. He plays a tune he's played a million times with ease. He smiles at you and you melt, smiling right back.
You sit next to him on his bed, "I can't believe Rue had never been in a hotbox before," you laugh softly.
He matches your laugh and sets his guitar down. He pulls you closer to him, his arm wrapping around your waist.
"Well, not everyone is a stoner like you babe," he says softly.
You scoff, "I know that." You run your fingers through his hair, "But it's Rue!"
He chuckles and squeezes your hip where his hand rests. He lays his head on your shoulder, his body leaning on you.
"I could lay on you forever." He smiles, changing the subject.
You lay back on his bed, pulling him down with you, "Id let you,"
He smiles into your neck and presses kisses up the skin. He leaves one last kiss on your lips before laying his head down and falling asleep on you.
