Dom says that if Bobby ever suggested he go to rehab, there’s a 97% chance that he would
this just in: Dom is now Bobby’s favorite
Happy Late Birthday, Chrissy! I love you SOOO much and wish I could’ve posted this ON your birthday (rather than having it sit in my notebook for a few weeks)
They say your life flashes before your eyes when you have a near death experience, but that wasn’t true for Emmaleigh. All she saw was Jack’s face the day she met him in a seedy little bar on Persephone. All she’d expected from that night had been to regret it in the morning when the alcohol made its way out of her system. If you would have suggested to her back then that it would lead to her being cornered by Reavers out on a Rim Planet that she had never learned about in her Alliance-Run school back on Ariel, she would have laughed in your face (and then probably apologized for that rudeness).
When your character has been acting a little strangely and even you aren’t completely sure why but then it clicks and it HURTS.
(the reason Bobby is trying to be so laidback and non-YOU NEED HELP about Jack’s health care is because when he tried to pressure Brooke into healthcare for her eating disorder, he lost her and he desperately doesn’t want to fuck up his relationship with his brother)
Also by canonless I mean like… The events of the series happened but a liiiittle differently (not sparked by one person really) and the site would be centered on victors (both tributes in the quell and not), their families and district 13 citizens
So am planning to make a canonless Mockingjay site (sort of a followup to htkc). Planning for it to be SUPER laid back- probably no word count and either no or a very gentle activity requirement.
I’m going to start work when we have internet again (next week) and am thinking of giving jcnk a second chance.
But ugh, Jack, Brooke, and Bobby would’ve all been in the District 2 victor pool. And Jack knew he was dying and didn’t have long anyway so he’d say he would volunteer because it didn’t matter if he died and he could protect Bobby from having to go back in and try to protect Brooke inside (because of course she’d be reaped, fate and writers are cruel) and Bobby would have grudgingly agreed but then he’s standing there knowing Brooke is going in and knowing Jack has a wife and a child and WELP I VOLUNTEER AS TRIBUTE.
(lord now we know what’s going to happen when I have internet)
Brain keeps going “but what about another take on a thg site? Since the main issue was how to fairly run the games, what if it was like a canonless mockingjay site”
No self. You haven’t had internet in a month
It’s amazing what doing being the lover of a great composer can do for your career as a soprano. Most would probably find that to be true, however she’d found that your lover also having murdered a few stage hands and the late patron of the opera house probably helped to ensure that he got his way. It was perhaps too easy for her to dismiss that bloodshed he’d caused- partially on her behalf, however she had. She couldn’t blame him (or anyone else) for lashing out when mistreated and backed into a corner); she had only once felt afraid of him, when she’d first met him. That had faded- he had been gentle as soon as she’d shown she would treat him compassionately and like a person rather than with pity or hate.
Of course, it made others fear her when she emerged from their home below the Opera house, his composition in hand and their instructions on her lips.
Happy Birthday, Chrissy!!
