Alex: Luke, truth or dare?
Alex: I dare you to kiss the hottest person in this room
Luke: Okay, Julie?
Julie, blushing: Yeah?
Luke: Could you move over? I’m trying to get to Reggie
I love the idea of the boys popping into the school when Julie is taking a quiz or something and giving her the most random answers that isn’t even for the right question/class. Like her taking a math test and one whispering “the answer is Romeo and Juliet” or giving a number that is super obviously wrong
Would 100% recommend going through your oldest posts and reblogging with commentary like I just did. It was super fun to look Back at my jatp posts from almost a year ago and see what’s changed in the fandom!
Tag me if you also reblog your old posts :)
Just went through and reblogged some of the first fics I made in the fandom To see how well they aged with some commentary! Check them out!
I’m going to reblog some of my oldest jatp posts and see how well they aged
“I ran my fingers through my damp hair, turning away from him so he couldn’t see the lie in my eyes. Bobby and I had been friends since we were kids -- long before I’d met Alex and Reggie. He knew when something was eating me away. And he knew it now. (...) He always knew how to help. Even when I didn’t ask him for it.”
LUKE PATTERSON about BOBBY SHAW, Chapter 8 of “Whatever Happens” (JATP Novelization #2)
Genuinely though, Luke's characterisation in the book is like exactly what I've been wanting to see from him. His problems with Emily are there consistently throughout and clearly impact most of, if not all of the decisions he makes. His music isn't this vague overpowering obsession, he wants to be just like Dave Grohl and he'd perform at empty lounges just so he can play. He has complicated and emotional relationships with the guys, he talks to people outside the band, and he has a job that he struggled to balance with school and his music. He feels like a full person!!!!! That's what I wanted from him!!!!!!!! Let's just not talk about Reggie because I genuinely want to unread his chapters
do you guys ever think about alex mercer and his fluffy hair and his awkward hunched shoulders and his snarky eye-rolling and his tongue-between-his-teeth grin and the heart eyes he has for willie and just c r y
Everything is the same except instead of explaining what he knows, Willie just puts on Ghost(1990)How he got the tv or the DVD is not important. Alex fully has the intention to take notes(despite not being able to write yet) but just sobs half way though because it’s really sweet ok?
Intro post ramble-
I technically posted this before, but I wanted to update it with some more info and the proper tags. My bad 😅
I’ve completely speed run the show in a full night, so I’m still trying to take everything in. However what I can remember is absolutely art. It’s just, like you can tell it was aimed for younger audiences but it’s clearly one watched by the slightly older audience? If that makes sense? Like some of the conflict resolution is to simple and they can’t curse(more on that later). However I LOVE it. ITS FREAKING GHOSTS HOW CAN I NOT? If there is two things I love in this world it’s vampires and ghosts because there is SO much story potential and clearly the writers could see that to.
I like how the show KIND OF goes by Ghost(1990 Patrick Swayze movie) logic. Mainly when it comes to touch. Putting all your energy into it or being in a super emotional state. Also not being seen or heard etc. Except The Whole while performing/ by Julie is def it’s own thing. Which again I love. I definitely want to see it explored as well , same with the boys getting caught up as they were just told “hey it’s no longer the 90s” and still basically know nothing lmao. Same with some more Ghost lore but that’s just me.
Ok so about Jem and the holograms - I mean Julie and the phantoms (I think I’m hilarious).
So we have
Tip toes (Luke does this a LOT when he’s jumpy)
Finn the human
Seriously I KNEW he looked and sounded familiar and when I say my head exploded.
Random quick things in the back of my head-
-Free willie (HA movie references, but seriously, save this sweet boy)
-I demand more Carlos.
-Seriously are we just going to ignore the fact he cried for 25 years and neither of his friends thought to give him a hug or at least calm him down.(even if it felt like just a hour that’s a pretty damn long time to just let someone cry)
-Luke is the embodiment of the “my music taste” meme. He’s out here in Poison, Iron Maiden etc shirts but the music he plays (at least with Julie) is all more Pop rock then hard rock/metal. I just. I personally find that funny. Love the bands tho he has good taste
-They should be allowed to curse once in the show and personally I think they should have added it into the club scene : *in tears* “what the FUCK is a jar jar?”
So I’m probably going to rewatch the show, likely not immediently but you guys are SO detail oriented for every single scene and every single detail it’s insane! I’m also like that, but more when it comes to lore and character study. however I’m not the kinda person who really gets into actors or their lives so I’ll leave that to y’all.
Fan art (screenshot redraws, own ideas etc)
Theory’s , headcannons etc
I’m taking suggestions for all of these as I genuinely have no idea rn! So please if there’s something you’d like to see tell me! :)
Also I’m brand new to the fandom so if someone could catch me up on things like
Last names, ages, stuff that’s not outright said in the show etc that would be fantastic.
I haven’t been in the fandom for very long but I’ve heard you guys basically already know everything, from nail color to parting hair levels of into and that’s insane to me. Share you secrets smh. I don’t know if this is going to be me live-blogging or going episode by episode with the small things I notice. However I think you guys already got to everything? Who knows
asdfgfdssdf imagine if Alex was a fedora guy
how do i explain that alex gives off the vibes that he has three sisters (one older two younger)
God it's honestly so hilarious to me that Luke, Reggie, and Bobby are like these very openly flawed and sometimes just kinda bad people, then Alex is just in the background trying to overcome his fear of disappointing his parents. Literally Reggie is flirty to the degree of being a literal creep (which, I hate it, please god take it back) and Alex is just checked out and wanting to get his friends places on time
Candace Buford @ Alex while characterising Sunset Curve:
I can’t believe that Julie and the Phantoms is getting nominated to these many awards and yet Netflix still hasn’t said a thing about a renewal. They’re missing on a goldmine, I swear.
who would want to collaborate with me on a jatp themed inktober type thing? it could be a fun thing to make sure the fandom stays alive, especially around the one year mark
send me a message or something if you’d want to help run it!
I love that twice now someone has essentially gone 'yeah the others are good to great but Alex? Amazing. The best.' Candace Buford is the number 1 Alex stan we love to see it
Ok but Alex being the sensitive and compassionate one, Bobby being the observant and rational one, and Reggie being the conflict resolver my beloveds
I may not like this super flirty version of Reggie but Alex immediately spacing as soon as he has to be around m/f flirting is a huge mood
