Hello and happy Wednesday!
Todays topic is Mother Figures. It actually took me a little longer to compile this list because to be honest most mums in fiction are either dead or just not that great.
All weekly topics can be found HERE.
1- Jean Milburn (Sex Education)
This past weekend I watched all episodes of Sex Education (it’s literally 8 episodes so it wasn’t that hard) and I fell in love with Jean. She’s a sex therapist and the mother of Otis, the main character. She has a her flaws like all mothers do but I love hers and Otis’ bond. Plus she’s hilarious.
2- Sally Jackson (Percy Jackson)
Sally Jackson is the real MVP. (I don’t know if I’m using that in the right context but what I’m trying to say is that she’s amazing).
3- Ma Mary (Derry Girls)
I couldn’t find a suitable gif to show her amazingness so instead take this video of her season 1 best bits. Honestly I’m obsessed with this show!
4- Mellissa McCall (Teen Wolf)
(By “one of these” she means a body bag. She’s literally threatening a 15 year old with death and I love her)
Yes it’s 2019 and I’m still talking about Teen Wolf. Let me live!
Mellissa reminds me so much of Sally Jackson. Nobody could handle having a teenage alpha werewolf who get’s into a whole lot of supernatural shit with his friends quite like her.
5- Gansey (The Raven Cycle)
For the lolz but also not. I feel like it’s universally accepted that Gansey is the mum friend and he deserves the recognition this mothers day.
Thanks for reading 🙂
