get to know me meme | [2/5] favorite male characters - John Crichton (Farscape)

Ah, screw it. But I am not Kirk, Spock, Luke, Buck, Flash or Arthur frellin’ Dent. I’m Dorothy Gale from Kansas.

Probably the only male character who managed to avoid the dreaded Man Pain. He was in pain a lot of his televised existence, but you saw WHY. His pain didn’t drive his journey; it destroyed it. His curiosity and wonder and desperation drove his journey. He wanted to go HOME, more than anything else. But he managed to build himself a new one. He was damn near destroyed by his drive to “get home”, but in a stunning turn, the narrative showed him that he’d outgrown what he remembered. All those choices and damage and connections he forged grew him up. And in the end, HE CHOSE to leave Earth and everything it represented behind. John Crichton isn’t defined by his pain, nor is he motivated by it. He’s defined by his choices, and that is what makes him so much… more.

#john crichton #i also think he is made so much more by his approach to masculinity #i know i am harping on this a bit #but it’s so refreshing #remember when we were all overwhelmed with raleigh from pacific rim? #john is four seasons of that plus wormholes #like. he actually makes masculinity look attractive #because it’s not threatening or dangerous #(he can be threatening or dangerous but not by virtue of his masculinity) #rather his masculinity is nurturing and protecting and caring #and that’s usually coded as femininity but this show illustrated that could be masculinity too #he is a breath of fresh air and i already miss him (via @ladytharen)
