If it exists, I would like to read a CS fic from inside the Echo Cave. After Hook’s confession, Emma started to move towards him, like she was going to say something. I NEED fic about what she would have said/done if MM hadn’t cut her off (on purpose? I see what you did there, MM). Please link?
Thoughts & Feels On Busy Little Humans & Other Entities. Also Homeland Fangirling.Ask me anything
I’ve been thinking too hard about the scene at the end of the OUAT finale, specifically Hook’s failed attempt at True Love’s Kiss. I have…an interpretation:
He seems to be aware of TLK’s power, and therefore possibly also its limitations. After he goes for it, he says it was a long shot, but worth a try. “I was hoping you felt as I did.” Past tense, right? I think maybe what he’s really doing here is admitting (again?) that he fell for her as soon as he first met her, and he was hoping she had just had a similar experience when she opened the door to find him there. He means, “I was hoping you felt just now what I felt when I first saw you.”
Of course it doesn’t work, that would be too easy. And Emma’s much too guarded to be a love at first sight kind of girl. I agree, though, it was worth a shot. Sorry, Killy. Try again. Also, stop it. You’re killing me.
Season 2, episode 4, “New Car Smell.” Did Brody “make” Carrie in the bar? Did he actually figure out that she wasn’t really there in a friendly capacity? I’m going with YES. YES, HE DID. If you disagree or are on the fence, please see exhibits A through D below:
A. This is how Brody normally looks at Carrie when things seem copacetic. He’s all sparkly eyed and affectionate, even when he knows he should be wary.
B. But then he digs at her about the ECT, and she slips. She lets him see this face, which clearly says, “I wanna rip your skin off, you sonofabitch.” (Thanks, Quinn.)
C. After that, he’s looking at her wrong. He’s not looking at her like she’s a sunrise, or a sports car, or a soul mate. He’s wary, and scared, and closed off. Add to that the fact that he cuts and runs here, and they don’t end up in bed (which really they normally would), and this is a no-brainer for Carrie.
D. Just to hammer it home, look at his body language when she gets up to his room. His posture is completely defensive. Back up, arms out, poised and ready to either fight or flee. He’s even wiggling his fingers on his left hand in anticipation of having to make a move.
This is a fucking brilliant, many layered sequence that I just can’t get enough of. I have a lot more thoughts and feels about what plays out next. Maybe I’ll get to that soon.
Is what I think the headlines will be on Monday morning. Cause I read the finale spoilers. And then I died.
And yet….here I am typing this. Which can really mean only one thing, right?
in the bag. But I’m also convinced Brody’s toast. Poor Carrie.
Confession: Homeland has taken over my life.
I dream about it at night and I eat it every morning for breakfast. And it is IN THE WAY. So I’m going to offload a bunch of thoughts and feels about the show on this blog here and hope that this release will help me free up some brainRAM.
A couple of notes:
I’m mainly interested in the characters and their relationships and all the brilliant brilliant acting. So most of my spew will be about that.
Also, I am not a member of the Plausibility Police. I have no interest in nitpicking plot holes and realism in a fictional universe. Unless it’s something really glaring (like when one week everyone is agreeing that Brody and Carrie both need constant watching, and then the next week for seemingly no reason NO ONE is watching either of them), I don’t give a shit.
Anyway, follow along, if you want. Or not. Whatevs. Comment, even. Except, you can’t. Stupid Tumblr.
for insightful discussions re: characters I like that will commence just as soon as I have the time and motivation to start them. Also, fangirling.
In the meantime, you should study up on:
Homeland, Breaking Bad, Doctor Who & Game of Thrones
