"Getting people back together"
Don't. Not because it should/shouldn't happen in theory, but because you dunno why it stopped. Everyone has inner workings.
You always root for the characters in your movies and shows because you SEE the development and follow them and see those full flashbacks and WHY they are upset. You live through it with them, but in REAL life when you're just staring at someone through a computer and you dunno why they won't appease your nostalgia good feels boner because you miss YOUR good ol' days when so and so was friendos' with so and so or these two people were together. Like dude, you can like someone online/in person and they can seem chill and rad s heck and be a total pile of hot garbage when that mask isn't on.
Bill cosby was this pinnacle of this, as much as I HATE that he's become that. :'). You can appear/be great in one area, and be a shitpile in another. Ya'll have to start separating ACTIONS - FROM INTENT and start applying some more thought into stuff as a species my people.
