Ugh just saw they dropped something! I’ll have to watch it when I get home
I tend to regret deleting posts and should figure out how to stop doing it so much. Hey anxiety go away!
I’m trying to find my old post speculating about Murray being future-Mike and I can’t find it, so maybe I need to write a new post.
I’m done being formal about anything here. I’m over it. This is the post now.
- a writer
- dark curly hair
- glasses like Ted
- Wheeler-style sweater
- yells at his mom in his voicemail message in a very Mike-like way
- makes thinly-veiled comments about Nancy’s love life during meals (“What test were you studying for again? human anatomy?” / “So Jonathan…”)
- gets along very well with Joyce
- Hopper describes him as annoying but “harmless”
- queercoded (mainly the flirty conversation with the Russian guard about not needing sunlight as long as they have booze and each other)
I know you all think of this as a crack-theory but I do see it as a legitimate possibility. 😌
@bylerainbowheeler 😈 Eeehehehe! But What If?
Murray being future Mike? More likely than you think.
People like to think of themselves as points moving through time. But I think it’s probably the opposite. We’re stationary, and time passes through us, blowing like cold wind, stealing our heat, leaving us chapped and frozen. I don’t know, dead. I feel like I was that wind tonight.

Will and Joyce having this conversation in s4
Something something the occasional shots of a starry sky before panning down to the world below and Sara’s interest in galaxies and the fact that there’s billions of other galaxies potentially with planetary systems similar to our Milky Way galaxy something something Hawkins and the Upside Down only being different variations of this dimension
i followed you for your url because i have a whole thesis about how will would totally be the final girl in a horror movie. literally the first episode of the show has him react to a horror movie scenario with the smartest and most logical series of decisions despite him being terrified—a monster is chasing him so he runs home, locks the door behind him, yells for his family to help him, calls 911, and grabs a gun to defend himself! and then he proceeds to survive a WHOLE WEEK in a nightmare dimension with no food and minimal water being hunted by monsters, and figures out a way to communicate with his mom from across dimensions! in season 2 he outsmarts the eldritch demon actively possessing him using nothing more than morse code! in season 3 the INSTANT he realizes the mind flayer is back he completely forgets about his interpersonal drama because he realizes that stopping the mf is way more important, and he's the one keeping his friends on track when they start arguing about relationships instead of focusing on the imminent threat to their lives! society is too afraid to have a horror movie final girl who happens to be a gay teenage boy from indiana. it's 2021. it's time
Hey! I love your posts
I just wanted to ask, iyo, what are the worst ST ships you’ve seen?
Aside from obviously inappropriate pairings, the only fandom ships I’m against are h@rrin//grove and romantic Stobin. There’s also some ships that I just think work best platonically.
As far as canon ships, I think J@ncy ran their course, Nancy and Jonathan deciding to go their separate ways makes the most sense at this point.
How do you feel about fans who don’t interpret Billy as racist since in the show itself We were never told clearly and straightforwardly Billy was racist and in fiction when you don’t make something direct it can be interpreted in multiple ways? Do you think Billy could’ve been redeemed? How do you think the duffers handle Billy? Left field but Do you have any interesting theories you haven’t heard anyone talk about for season 4?
I feel a bit iffy continuing to argue whether or not this fictional character is racists through subtext and interpretations when this conversation is much more bigger then that.
Billy is a sad, sad story but I feel the show is done with him, unless it’s through the repercussions of his impact on Max. And there’s sure to be hope found in Max’s eventual recovery and ending the cycle of abuse. They gave Billy one last hurrah, not as redemption, but to let us mourn that innocent and beaming young boy he once was. As far as how his character was handled, he reminded me a lot of Henry Bowers from Stephen Kings IT. Being the secondary antagonist and serving as yet another obstacle standing in the way of our beloved heroes. His possession storyline was a bit funky, but in the grand scheme of things s3 somewhat feels like it was building a bridge for s4, and though handled with care, Billy was just another chess piece.
Do you think billy Hargrove was racist?
Yeah. I don’t know what part of Billy stating “There are certain people in this world you stay away from” isn’t clicking for people.
In L. Frank Baum’s The Wizard of Oz, the land of Oz was intended to be an undiscovered world, in which Oz truly does exist and is located somewhere on the planet Earth that can never found.
While in the 1939 film it’s heavily implied that the Land of Oz was merely a concussion-based delusion, as Dorothy uses her imagination to step away from her reality, Kansas, and escape to “Somewhere over the Rainbow” which could be represented by the young lab subjects seen crawling over the rainbow. The sickly and gloomy corridors of the facility being their psychical reality and the eye catching Rainbow Room appearing disturbingly welcoming to the young subjects with children’s toys being this superficial reality, as it’s suggested in their world of sensory perception. There’s also the stuffed Lion/ Tiger plushies as well. As Dr. Brenner enters El’s room, frightened she clutches her lion stuffed animal, the only hint of any merry and childish decorations seen in her cell. And Sara’s Tiger rests by her side on the hospital bed, and with Will. In the Wizard of Oz the gift the lion is given by the Wizard is the subconscious thought making clear that throughout his journey he always had courage within himself that he was just unaware of, saving Dorothy and her friends from their many terrifying encounters in Oz.
Hawkins Laboratory is even compared to the Emerald City, the stunning capital and center of the Land of Oz where the great and powerful Wizard resides. Promising gifts as the man behind the curtain is paid no attention to as onlookers are entranced by a fantastical aura of booming lights and elaborate magic tricks. Basically, if Hawkins Lab is the Emerald City then I’m viewing Dr. Brenner as the not-so-wonderful Wizard of Oz because he really is the man behind the production operating the controls.
This is more of a reach, but the Land of Oz is described as a place made of dreams, an idealistic realm (despite Dorothy and her friends encountering many terrifying obstacles throughout their adventure). This could be referenced by the pattern of false assurance from Brenner to El that nothing can hurt her while within the boundaries of her own head, in the Void or while she explores the sick and diseased recesses of Billy’s mind. Which prior to El’s attempt to make contact with Billy, her flashback is triggered by an image of a rainbow.
