I was watching the HOA marothon on Teenick and i felt so bad for Joy. She didn't have to act so different i liked her when she was nice when she wasn't trying to get Nina out of the way. Even know that Nina took like most of her stuff away(not really her stuff )
Joy=Dramatic, dramatic=Joy, but I have to admit I do feel bad for her because leaving in S1 was NOT her choice, and in S2 everyone sort of favored Nina a little (or a lot more). But even then Joy should NOT have written that article about Nina and definitely should NOT have taken Nina's mask just so she could kiss Fabian, quite frankly I was not a fan of that. Another thing about Joy is that she pushes away the people who try to help her and doesn't even TRY to see other people's points of view. I DO, however, think it was kind of her to help Sibuna get Nina back in the Senet game, despite their, umm... differences. And did anyone else notice that she cries, A LOT??? though in S3 when Fabian shoots her down in "House of Pi" I have to say it is understandable because Fabian could have been a lot gentler... I mean, When you're a girls crush (and you know it, which I'm pretty sure Fabian did) you cant just smash her feelings down,you have to be CAREFUL with things like that!!!
I don't really know why people feel bad for her. I mean, sure she was taken away and a lot of stuff changed but that doesnt mean she has the right to do bad stuff to Nina. Nina didn't do ANYTHING to Joy, but yet Joy is mean to her. Joy writes a mean article about her, she kisses her ex-boyfriend, and she even flirted with Fabian while Nina and him were still dating! It's not right. And Joy shouldn't have done all that stuff because she was angry, it's just not right. I'm sorry if that was a little harsh, but I'm a serious fabina shipper, so.
I feel really bad, especially when she would cry. Because in Season 1, Patricia is SUPER worried that Joy wasn't there, and that her "BFF" wasn't there. But now that Joy came back, Patricia rarely talks to Joy in Season 2. BUT, Joy shouldn't have done the things like the Article on Nina. So I'm 50/50
Trueee BUT we can't forget how in one of the episodes of season 2 joy kissed fabian while he thought she was nina. Fabian and Joy had a thing for each other they were't going to date or anything they just really liked each other and they were really close friends. Joy saw how happy he was with Nina and she didn't care she was being selfish. She broke Nina's heart and Fabian may have broken hers but not on purpose. He likes Nina a lot more and Joy should have respected that. i don't like joy that much in season 2. And Nina didn't take her stuff. She didn't replace her or anything. Nina didn't even know what Joy had they never knew each other in season 1. It wasn't Nina's fault. Plus in season 1 joy said she wasn't coming back to the school so Nina could make herself at home.
It wasn't Joy's fault that she had to leave and she was just upset because once she was back in the house she ignored and everybody's eyes were on Nina. The truth is that Joy is really nice and if people had treated her like they did Nina then Joy wouldn't feel left out.
I know right! People need to put themselves in her shoes. The poor girl had to stay away from her friends and be the chosen one. And her and Fabian were about to be an item (at least I think so), but then she had to leave. Next thing you know, she comes back and Fabian is with another girl. That would be heartbreaking. And in Season 2 episode 1, she walked in and nobody was that excited to see her. "Joy..." and "NINA!". You see the difference? I am a total Fabina shipper, and that article wasn't cool. But to be honest, I wasn't really mad when she kissed Fabian at the ball. I was actually impressed. If you ignore the whole Jabian/Fabina drama, Joy is actually a really nice, happy, and funny character.
