#so maybe the only reason karen notices the phone ringing in the crowded club is because she’s seven shots deep#and starting to think that texting people her feelings is the best possible thing she can do right then#so her thumb’s hovering over his name when it starts flashing on the screen and she answers without a second though#t#starting to push through the crowd to find a quieter place where she can actually hear her own thoughts and ends up in the women’s toilets#”anyone there?” he’s asking and she laughs a little drunkenly at his confusion#”yep yeah i’m here sorry it was noisy i couldnt hear you”#”ah. partying away like a proper star then?”#”you know me” she says and theres an agreeing heavy silence#”so i saw the movie” he offers then like that wasnt the reason he was calling her at 3 am#”’yeah?”#”chris pratt is well hot.”#”matt”#”yeah yeah. you were there too i know. and i gotta admit… you…”#karen isnt sure why shes holding her breath. probably the alcohol.#”your head was absolutely fucking massive”#she makes an ugly snorting laugh noise that hurts the back of her throat#”no like i’m not saying that because your my mate. it was fucking huge. it could probably affect the tides. ive never been prouder of you.’#”oh really?”#matt laughs a little hoarsely#”really.” he repeats and his voice has gone soft#”you were the only thing i saw on that screen.”#”because of my giant head?” karen asks smiling at the filthy looking trashcan by the corner#matt just huffs a laugh and she can imagine him shaking his head fondly#”look i gotta go. see you wednesday for lunch?” she asks then#”my mum says she can’t wait”#SEE THIS IS VERY SUBTLE BECAUSE ACTUALLY I AM THE FILTHY LOOKING TRASHCAN BY THE CORNER#GOD#I’M SORRY ABOUT ALL THIS#NO CHILL ABOUT ANYTHING EVER EVEN WHEN THE THING IS YEARS OLD
I remember how much her realization that she was “never going to be good enough for him” resonated with me when I first watched this movie. She decided to push herself, not to be with him, but to prove him the fuck wrong.
Strong female role models who can still wear pink and love fashion. Yes yes yes.
I FUCKING LOVE THIS MOVIE OH MY GODDDDDDDDDD
CAN WE JUST STOP FOR A SEC THO?
HE’S INSULTING HER FOR BEING DUMB
SHE GOT INTO THAT SCHOOL ON HER OWN.
WARNER NEEDED HIS DADDY TO CALL THEM TO BE ABLE TO GET IN.
I LOVE THIS MOVIE NO ONE EVEN UNDERSTANDS.
AND he was WAITLISTED.
