I mean, look at this kid. Look at him.
He’s mathematically gifted, but artistically adrift. An innate tactical genius, who fills supersoakers full of Borax and knows the only way to escape a charging moose is to duck and swerve. (For that matter, he actually runs faster than Sam — who is himself a runner — even while holding a heavy rock tablet.) He’s vegan, displaying a strong sense of responsibility to those weaker than him. Oh, and he picks locks, and has great taste in blazers, and he loves his obnoxious mom, and he’s so full of a lifetime’s worth of responsibility, and fear, and courage, and cleverness that I just want to reach into the tv set and squish him forever. I mean:
“I just want to be the first Asian-American president of the United States.”
Why? Why does anyone that young want to be president? Because he wants to be a leader. An inspiration. A hero. Goddammit, Kevin Tran is the best damn thing to hit this show since Jody Mills.
Oh, and did you know that Osric Chau actually recorded a post-Season 7 diary from Kevin’s point of view and uploaded it to Youtube?
Because Osric Chau is awesome.
COULD THIS GIRL GET ANY MORE PERFECT
SOBBING BECAUSE YOU JUST SUMMED UP MY FEELINGS FOR KEVIN TRAN IN A WAY THAT I COULD NEVER DO
#am i allowed to say i’m the leader of the kevin tran fanclub #because #i loved him the moment he appeared #can i #can i be the leader #please #i can pass messages onto osric for you if you’d like #well #i say that #we haven’t talked in a while so #it would be awkward to send him a message out of the blue saying that someone loves him #though i’m sure he knows #BUT YES #PLEASE #CAN I BE THE LEADER
Would that make you his campaign manager, maybe? KEVIN TRAN 2016 :)
Anyway, I’m totally on board with you. I loved Kevin too, from the moment I heard that alarm ding on his computer. Lots of people dismiss him as a stereotype, but I dunno, I grew up with a lot of Kevins; hell, for a long time, I was a Kevin myself.
So seeing him in the S8 trailer break free and carve out his own path (with Borax supersoakers, nonetheless) was an honest-to-god fist-pumping moment. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
LOVE ALL THE KEVIN TRAN
