hey remember that time disney made a movie with a diverse cast and strong female characters and not-entirely-evil antagonists and interesting characters and a poc princess and unique animation and an exciting plot and a steampunk submarine to top it all off
and nobody so much as gave it a second glance
THIS MOVIE IS MY HAPPY PLACE
Scott, that is blood money. Seriously. Those people that died? That money has their blood on it.
You keep it? You are disgusting.
I’m going to have to respectfully disagree. Times are hard.
There were allusions to rough times in the McCall household S1. Now, years later, the house is falling apart and they’re three months behind on lights. Unless they catch up all the way and then pay the next month, they’re literally screwed. (Been there. the Power People are serious and relentless when it comes to repeat offenders.) Light problems = food problems = even bigger money problems.
Money is money. The cops don’t need it for evidence. The dead are dead. He’s not buying a new bike he’s saving his mother an ulcer and saving his livelihood. Not to mention, he’ll probably split it with Stiles. The only question now is how to pass it off as legal money.
I could’t agree more. I hate to say it but if that were me, the moment I know the money couldn’t be traced, I’d be giving it to my mom and telling her not to ask questions. The struggle is literally real, we’re still in that kind of position. It’s one of the reasons why I can never hate Scott, he’s a family man through and through. He’s a mamma’s boy and its the biggest trait I relate to him with.
Blood money. It’s disgusting. It will never be right.
Where the money comes from is not okay, but Scott taking it is understandable. When the power goes off, it’ll be followed by other things (repossession, eviction, Melissa getting sick from stress leading to more stress because they can’t pay the bills if she can’t work) and it’s horrible for anyone in that situation. Scott would do everything he could to stop that from happening. Being in that position, it would be incredibly difficult for me to not take that money because when you can’t afford basic things, like power or heating, it wears you and everyone else down and it makes you desperate. Scott is only about 17 or 18 at this point - he’s basically a kid who shouldn’t have to deal with this stuff, and normally I’d agree and say Scott’s making bad decisions again and not thinking of the consequences, but when you’re a teenager and desperate to help you will do stupid things like this.
Nope. You get another job. You sell your things. You help with the household repairs. You quit your sports because that costs money. You yell at your deadbeat dad for not helping around the house more. You don’t steal money, especially not blood money.
ok well when jobless Stiles uses some of that “blood money” to pay his medical bills (because that’s kind of the point of the money, the kids being tempted because of their troubles), I’ll be waiting for you to give him shit for it.
Get another job???? Scott is 17, in school, and already has a job. You’re saying a 17 year old needs to have two jobs?? Do you want him to drop out of school in order to do that? You want him to quit his one extra curricular activity? You want him to be responsible for his grown ass father.
This just in, young boys of color can’t fucking win.
