bad buddy’s conflicts started out w pranpat frightened of the disapproval of others, both the faculty and their own parents, but those conflicts weren’t concluded by them getting/earning said approval, it was by them learning so much about themselves and love and happiness thru each other that they said ‘fuck it. we don’t care about ur approval.’ they defied 'we don’t care if it upsets u that we’re together we won’t let go of each other no matter how much we love u bc we love ourselves more.’ bc in choosing each other it was their own happiness, themselves they chose.
bad buddy wasn’t about forgiving their parents either. there was no forgiveness in pranpat’s actions, like when they told them they broke up and their parents were relieved that too was an act of violence against them. that’s why they had no qualms about lying anymore. bc why should we care. why are we the only ones that have to care, why can’t you care about us more? why should we be the bigger person when ur the adults? and so for the first time in their lives pranpat openly lie to their parents. 'u hate lies so much but can’t stand the truth? whatever that’s not our problem anymore. we told u what u needed to hear to stay happy, so now, u either drop the curtains on us urself and ruin ur own peace and quiet, or u shut ur ears to us going behind ur back.’ they said 'now that’s their problem not ours’, like it’s always been, like it should have been, they should have never had to worry about their parents and now they decided they won’t.
bad buddy wasn’t about love bridging the gap btw two enemy states thru ill-fated love (that ended up being smth those ppl resolved on their own in the end). it’s about two ppl who fall in love in spite of those circumstances, who thru their love unlearn that deep-seated hate and defy the world and their upbringing by constantly choosing each other. like no they don’t wanna hurt their loved ones. but they also need each other and they won’t make such a huge sacrifice for ppl who simply need to put their egos aside. their love isn’t some huge dramatic tale of tragic, forbidden love, it’s a simple everyday story of how love is healing, how liberating choosing ur lover can be, how love always wins.
