can we just talk about this scene for a minute?? so i went into this show with absolutely no idea that these two would get together at some point, so when April locked the door and turned around and that bass music started bumpin, i was understandably SHOOK.
bc wow, not only did they give a romantic storyline to one character who started the season losing her virginity to her long time boyfriend and another character who’s in a straight-straight alliance...
but i was also shook bc of APRIL’S FACE.
do you see the desperate longing and yearning on this child’s face, in her EYES?? someone sedate me i’m
this look doesn’t just come out of nowhere.
April’s been quite possibly waiting for this moment (believing full well it would never come) since the 5th fucking grade, when Sterling not so subtly gave her away. skip ahead 5 or 6 years, and Sterling finally wants her back. and not just back, but BACK.
Sterling is one of April’s Adeles who come back from Arizona!
but instead of feeling threatened by April’s intensity—like the actual Adele—Sterling always returned that same intensity head on (and is now returning it to the point where it matches April’s), so not only am i shook, April’s shook.
and by April’s own words, she is intense, and so she buried that shit so deep (not her sexuality but her feelings for Sterling) that the moment her feelings are reciprocated, like that VERY moment, April’s like “it’s on,” proceeds to lock the world out, and jumps Sterling’s bones, quite literally crashing their faces together without a moment’s hesitation.
i mean, she barely put any thought to it, leading me to believe she’s definitely imagined kissing Sterling countless times before.
Sterling—the girl who was supposed to be her, quote, mortal enemy, like, less than a week ago. Sterling—the girl who ditched her in elementary school when she got her first bf. Sterling—the girl she always seemed to compare her wins (and losses) to, even when Sterling had no idea.
Sterling, Sterling, Sterling.
April had been competing against Sterling for years to be the best, when in actuality, all she really wanted was to be seen by Sterling as the best.
but the poor baby gay had been suppressing those feelings for Sterling for so long that she confused a complicated crush with “i must crush her,” only for a kiss from said crush to wake her the hell up.*
like c’mon, look at these last two stills—if that’s not enlightenment, idk what is
*our gay modern day sleeping beauty, what did we do to deserve
Netflix really is trash as hell. They cancel 90% of the lgbtq shows they put out. Stop giving us shows/characters to care about if you aren't planning to keep them around for more than 1 season, it's not cute
I havent seen anything like this happen yet but I am begging people not to get weird with Devon and Maddie on Insta or Twitter like... I've seen enough f/f ships over the years to know the actresses can get overwhelmed, or they get inundated with inappropriate and invasive messages and it makes them distance themselves from the ship... please just be respectful!
TBH has got a good thing going and we're lucky the cast interact with us so much please don't blow it by making them feel uncomfortable 🥺
Ok so i saw Teenage Bounty Hunters on Netflix and it looked so stupid but i started watching and immediately thought Wow this IS so stupid
Trying hard to be quirky and like oh cool teens with secret lives and oh they're rich and white and the cliché storylines with their suburb parents and their struggles.
But i kept watching bc i was procrastinating and the characters started actually growing on me? The positivity and sweetness and kindness in their core, the healthy loving uplifting relationship (most between the twins but others too) and the storylines actually ended up a lot more complex and unexpected than i first anticipated?? Like every cliché i thought was coming ended up not.
Then in the last couple of episodes i was just like WHAT THE FUCK IN THE WORLD WHAT WHAT WHAT
It suddenly became a crazy action movie holy hell
Anyways, my mind was blown and i kinda desperately want another season
(BUT let women be BI and not "oh i just don't like labels" 2k20)
So I was thinking about how sometimes twins seem to run in the family. So when April and Sterling are ready to have kids, Sterling really wants to adopt, because her and April are going to have a STRONG appreciation for chosen family. And April decides they should adopt twins, because (even if it can be annoying) Sterling's bond with Blair is really enviable.
April finds herself regretting this decision a multitude of times throught the children's childhood and adolescence
I just finished Teenage Bounty Hunters and fucked. Me. Up. I really need another season because omg Blair grow up so much in just one season without losing her goofy traits (if that's a way to put it) and seeing her grow one more time will clean my soul because she is my child and I'm very proud of her. As for Sterling, I really need to know how she is going to process all this new info about her mom and the fact that April's dad is out of jail. I mean if she becomes unstable and having an identity crisis now and then it would be interesting to watch it from her and Blair's perspective. Ugh I really hope it gets renewed!

totally agree with what you said about not getting weird with maddie and devon!! my fear has always been celebs interacting less with fans bc of invasion of privacy. i especially hope that people keep in mind that they do not owe us anything.
Yes! As I said I haven't seen people being weird towards the cast at all, it was just kind of a preliminary post that I didn't expect to gain notes! The one thing that kinda made me think was that live that Devon and Maddie did where someone asked if Devon listened to girl in red but it all played out well in a jokey way (does she though 👀 but also it's none of our business).
TLDR; as you say they don't owe us anything and as long as everyone knows there's a boundary between interested and invasive that's fine. It seems like they enjoy interacting with fans which is refreshing!
