In which Tobias has imaginary conversations with Tris, because he knows she’d make him feel better when things get bad. Although, sometimes it’s hard to pretend and instead of helping, it makes matters worse.
When we worked here together, we fought, scratched, and clawed to make people’s lives a tiny bit better. That’s what public service is all about: small, incremental change every day. Teddy Roosevelt once said ‘Far and away the best prize that life has to offer is a chance to work hard at work worth doing.’ And I would add that what makes work worth doing is getting to do it with people that you love. I started my career more than thirty years ago in the Parks and Recreation department right here in Pawnee, Indiana. I had a lot of different jobs, including two terms as your governor. And soon, a new, unknown challenge awaits me which to me, even now, is thrilling because I love the work. Not to say that public service isn’t sexy because it definitely is, but that’s not why we do it. We do it because we get the chance to work hard at work worth doing, alongside a team of people who we love. So I thank those people who walked with me and I thank you for this honor. Now, go find your team and get to work
I understand that you think I acted too emotionally. And putting aside the fact that men always say that about women they work with, I’ll get straight to the point. I am emotional. I do bring it into my work. It’s what motivates me. It helps me to get into the headspace of our victims… See what they’ve seen. Even if I don’t want to, even if it horrifies me. And I think it makes me a better agent. If you have a problem with that, sorry. You can fire me.
so I was feeling lousy and decided to take some of the best advice I can give to anyone feeling lousy- which is to draw your fav character being sad get out there and freakin make something! man, I am suuuuper out of practice with animating though golly (how do you even use photoshop for this?!?!??)
anyway I have a horrible feeling season 2 is going to feature Sylvia getting hurt bad and Wander thinking/realizing it was all his fault
Can we talk about this for a second? I made these gifs for another set, but when looking at them I noticed something. Look at the lighting here? You can not tell me that wasn’t deliberate.
Half of his face is in the light, half is in the dark. Much like how Rumple is making him feel right now. Light and dark. Part of him KNOWS he’s changed, a better man, a GOOD person. But now Rumple is making him question himself. Maybe he hasn’t changed… maybe he really does still have a dark soul. This part of the season we are gonna see Killian battle with his inner demons, the ones that are eating at him and trying to tell him who he is and who he isn’t. He doesn’t know anymore. The only thing he knows is he loves Emma, and wants what is best for her. But what if that isn’t him? What if he truly is, just a pirate.
Of course as a VIEWER, we know better, and we know Killian does have a good heart. But Rumple is playing all his cards just right, making Killian start to doubt himself. Much like I think the Snow Queen is about to do with Emma (hence her starting to lose control of her magic soon)
But what is so beautiful about this, is that THIS is what is going to make them both FULLY accept themselves. They will have won the battle in their own heads, and be CONFIDENT in who they are. Sure, they are confident in each OTHER, but not themselves. Not just yet. But soon. Very soon.
When I get married, you’ll be my maid of honour and you can.. get a cake from the supermarket for all I care! And then when you get married, I’ll be your maid of honour and- let’s be honest, I’ll probably do a better job. And then we’ll get houses next door to each other, and we’ll grow old together. And when we’re old ladies off our rockers we’ll be like, ‘remember that croquembouche?’ And we’ll laugh and laugh…
