I do not. I think Liam is very comfortable in his illness. Not just comfortable, he wears it like his armor (think of his hating college makes me fucking delirious speech) and in my opinion, he’s never going to change that. He’s good at hiding. He knows he’s charming and witty and that’s part of his defense,too. At some point (I hope and pray and plead), Rae is going to get better. She’s going to love herself and take care of herself, and in doing that, she’s going to realize how much Liam does not like himself. (and I don’t care what anyone says… if you don’t fully love you, you can’t fully love anyone else.) Liam’s way of showing he cares has been to force food on her when he knew she had issue with food, to continuously be in her space, to kiss her when they were both very vulnerable and then not show up when his girlfriend was going to kick her ass (i’m also a little ticked at Iz and Chop, but I’ll save that for some other time.
And yeah, that’s future. But right now, I’d say no, too. At the hospital there’s a sign in the office that says “Healed people, heal people. Hurt people, hurt people.” and I believe that. Tix loved Rae and wanted her to get better… but she also beat Rae up with some flowers (favorite scene, tbh). Chloe wants to help Rae, but Chloe needs some healing herself.
So after all of this (and I am so far away from the question)…
Liam wants Rae to be comfortable in her illness and wants her to feel alienated from everyone else by it (his fucking delirious speech, again). Chloe wants her to say she’s better (and not necessarily be better) but Finn Fucking Nelson is the only one to say “I don’t care if you’ve got stuff. We’ve all got stuff” which is a) him tell her he likes her regardless and b) wanting her to know that he doesn’t think she’s mental because EVERYONE has things going on.
CHILLS RUNNING DOWN MY FUCKING SPINE.
and i loved this analysis of Rae & Tix “At the hospital there’s a sign in the office that says “Healed people, heal people. Hurt people, hurt people.” and I believe that. Tix loved Rae and wanted her to get better… but she also beat Rae up with some flowers (favorite scene, tbh).”
i didn’t do a single thing i was supposed to over break
