Deryni High

I was plotting a fanfic and wondering whether Kelson was being emo.

Then I wondered: if Alaric Morgan was emo, how could you tell?

Then I thought maybe he's goth ... but he'd be likely to sit with the punk kids at lunch.

Then it hit me: Deryni High.

Brion Haldane had been the football quarterback and team captain who had taken the team to multiple State championships. So all eyes are on his son Kelson, an entering freshman but already a phenom, almost magical.

But his mother doesn't want him trying out for the team, and especially doesn't want him hanging out with that delinquent Alaric. But Alaric is protecting Kelson from swirlies. The first season ends with Charissa Festil trying to give Kelson an atomic wedgie.

Kevin McLain is a wide receiver and is dating Bronwyn, a cheerleader. In the second season, Kevin is forced out of bounds and collides with Bronwyn, tearing both their ACLs and ending their careers.

In the third season, in the semifinal, co-captain Edmund Loris is doing everything he can to sabotage Kelson, even if it means the team going down. But Alaric laterals the ball to Warin Grey, who runs it in for a touchdown. The coach benches Loris, Corrigan, and a few others. Warin gets written out of the show afterwards for some reason. Maybe the actor asked for a raise.

In the final ep of season three, there's a few seconds left and Torenth is up by 1. The Torenthi QB hands off to Rhydon Sasillion, who runs it backwards for a safety, putting Deryni High over the top!

I think I need to take my temperature.

Love that!

Here's a rundown on emo and goth, which is what I believe tmcd was referencing:  https://www.dictionary.com/e/goth-vs-emo/
"If having a soul means being able to feel love, loyalty, and gratitude, then animals are better off than a lot of humans."

James Herriot (James Alfred "Alfie" Wight), when a human client asked him if animals have souls.  (I don't remember in which book the story originally appeared.)

I think Emo was declining by the time my DD entered high school, so she and her friends were more like Scene Kids.

Thank you DR and Evie.  I guess I am just a 1980's Pop Culture girl Who started working two full time jobs after college just to survive, and didn't have time to watch what the younger generations were doing.

You're ahead of me Laurna, total cultural incomprehension on all levels! 
However despite understanding about one word in three I still got that it was funny and clever.
God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.
(Psalm 46 v1)

For goth, a youth of the time expressed it as (this works better aloud): [hand to forehead] "I'm going to die, die ... dye my hair black!"

I am far from a youth, but I have an impression of a goth being more attitude-y, reveling in the darkness in his soul, but emo would be gazing at his shoes. I could be wrong.

Here is an emo bunny.

QuoteNobody understands Emo Bun

Emo Bun is going to put on his skinny jeans and play guitar in the garage.

Emo Bun doesn't expect you fascists to understand his art.

Emo Bun is destined to travel through the misty and cold fog of existence alone and cold.

Life is hard for Emo Bun.

Here is an emo bun with eyeliner, as is tradition.

As for "if Alaric Morgan was emo, how could you tell?": at the start, he's wearing black and rings. (Mail, as it happens, but that's another form of rings.) And violating the rule of tincture on his armory, raising the middle finger to heraldic authority.

Hey, Morgan, there's a sale at Hot Topic (https://www.hottopic.com/guys/). They have a sweet Metallica t-shirt that you'd like.

(I don't know how to mark up links here.)
