215 acres outside of Rutland. Rutland? Vermont. Okay? Ample space for the library, close to my house. You can run the foundation from Bennington. It’s nearby. You want me to move to Bennington? I want you to run my foundation. From Vermont. I’ve decided that’s where I’m going after the election. Take Teddy. It’s close to Karen. I’ve never been fly-fishing. I hear it’s the most challenging, the most peaceful. Vermont has some of the best fly-fishing in the country. You’re not saying anything. I can actually learn to make jam. No. No? No! I have been busting my ass building up your foundation. I am killing myself to further your legacy, to accomplish something, to change the world, without Congress or or he courts as an obstacle. And you want to make jam?!
Chris would never admit it, but he was absolutely and irrationally terrified of scary movies. He didn’t know why, scary games or books never really bothered him that much. But movies? That was, for some reason, on a whole different level. A friend theorized (yes, it was Matt and his big nose that he liked to stick into people’s business) that it was probably because you controlled games and books were only as bad as your imagination, while movies gave you all the details and, if you were in a theatre, you couldn’t pause the movie or leave without people seeing you chicken out. Either way, Chris didn’t do horror films.
Until it was revealed that Jason loved them. Adored them even, the man had a thriller movie collection to rivel the collective works of Stephen King. He was obsessed, and so Chris would bite his tongue and try not to start crying when people were shoved face first into a buzzsaw. A formidable task, but one he was somewhat willing to put up with for J.
‘The things I do for love.’ He thought mournfully as Jason dragged him into the theatre and grabbed a handful of popcorn. “I’m glad we got these seats, best view in the house.” Jason whispered and shoved the food into his mouth. Chris just tried not to whimper in fear as the the movie began. The worst part about scary movies, in Chris’s humble opinion, was how the first half hour always tricked you into thinking ‘hey maybe it won’t be so bad this time!’ before it ripped away any security or safety you might be feeling.
As the film continued, Chris was rather impressed with himself; he’d only screamed once, had managed to close his eyes in time to avoid the gory parts, and Jason seemed to be having a grand old time. All in all, better than expected. He was feeling pretty good until a terrifying looking figure slipped across the window and Chris almost vomited from fear alone. The scene was dark, the entire theatre was tense in anticipation and terror as the actor on screen moved further into the pitch black apartment.
“Chris? You okay?” Jason whispered and Chris realized he was trembling. Wordlessly, he shook his head and almost jumped out of his skin when his boyfriend wrapped an arm around his shoulders and pulled him close. “It’s okay, babe. I’m here. I’ve watched enough horror movies that if anyone or anything tried to come after you, I’d be three steps ahead and five cities away with you safe in my back seat.” He soothed. Chris felt some of his fear ease and he hid his face in Jason’s shoulder.
The entire theatre screamed in reaction to something he couldn’t see (he could feel Jason laughing and was concerned for a moment). Despite the strong feeling of terror around him, Chris almost smiled at the feeling of Jason holding him tightly and kissing the top of his head. 'Maybe horror movies aren’t so bad after all.’
This whole scene is actually one of my favourites ever for many reasons and one is because it is actually the first time we see her initiate a kiss without rushing through it. And another is because it all looks so natural that it’s heartbreaking: him holding her hand, her caressing his chest and going exactly for that spot where we know his scar is.
As we said many times already, all their sexual encounters start on fire, with her literally throwing him down or against a wall. They’re hot, intense, passionate but when it’s over, despite them having just shared what many consider the most intimate dance, they become almost hesitant around each other, as if talking or acting too quickly would break their invisible bubble of peace and stillness.
So him touching her face and her leaning down to kiss him is exactly them, who they truly are: two long-time lovers truly, finally reacquainting themselves with each other while raw and exposed because at the end of the day, when it come to Vane and Eleanor, it’s not while they’re having sex the moment they’re actually naked.
That simple kiss spoke of love in the purest, most open way ever.
↳ prince caspian cast commentary ⇾ pevensie affection. Georgie: Will and Anna, I think that’s the first time in both of the films when the Pevensie children have actually shown some kind of affection towards each other. (sound of grumbling and disagreement from the others.) Anna: We all hug Skandar in the first one. Georgie: Apart from the hugging of Skandar… it’s just Skandar who gets all of the hugs. Anna: I hug you at the Stone Table. Skandar: Yeah, there are lots of hugs. Georgie: Okay, actually, I’m going to take back what I said. In this film, that’s the only sign of affection that the Pevensie children show to each other. Anna: You hug Will in the bear scene. Georgie: Good point. Will: Yeah, and in the Aslan scene. Georgie: I’m just gonna shut up. Skandar: It’s the only time in this five minutes where they show any affection!
#yeah the pevensies never show any affection #who would think that?
A lot of the fandom seems to be freaking out about this so let’s talk about it!
This was actually one of my favourite scenes from the episode. Not because of any kind of impending drama but because this conversation has honestly been a long time coming.
After episode 7, there was no relationship talk. Victor and Yuuri have yet to sit down and tell each other straight up what they want out of their relationship (both personally and professionally). Flash back to episode 4 where Victor was asking what he should be to Yuuri. Now they actually are boyfriends (well, even more than that, fiancés) but same as we’ve never heard them state it, I don’t think they’ve really made it explicitly clear to each other either.
I feel that so far they’ve just been letting things evolve as they go. The Cup of China was actually only a bit over a month ago in-series. Their intimate relationship is still very new and it’s been moving really fast. They’re definitely physically intimate (as you can see by the pushed-together beds) but they haven’t quite connected the same way on the emotional level. They definitely love each other and want to stay with each other, I don’t doubt that for a moment, but they haven’t sat down and said “I want to spend my life with you” to each other. They haven’t told each other what their plans are for their professional relationship either.
We know that Victor has been doing a lot of thinking, and it was very obvious in this episode that he is grieving his career, but it’s also obvious that he doesn’t plan to go back to skating competitively.
Yuuri however, being the anxious person that he is, is reading Victor’s grieving all wrong. Yuuri is thinking that not only is their professional relationship (which he could end simply by retiring) but also their personal relationship is holding Victor back from what he “wants” – to go back to being a competitive skater. And thus we get the line that we did here. This is Yuuri’s attempt to “free” Victor to allow him to chase what Yuuri thinks he actually wants, which turns out could not be any further from the truth.
They aren’t going to break up. I can tell you that right now and with absolute certainty. Rather than this being something that is going to create drama, it is actually going to work to solve it. Yuuri needs to hear from Victor that Victor has no intention of leaving and that he wants to stay with Yuuri more than he wants to continue his skating career. Also very important is that Victor needs to say it out loud. Victor is a thinker, he rarely makes big decisions on a whim. He’s been processing what he wants to do with his life for a year now and he has definitely come to his decision (as was evident in episode 10).
Victor has chosen Yuuri over his skating career and this line from episode 11 is just the gateway to the discussion that will firmly cement their personal relationship in place. And the final bow-tie on the gift that is their relationship will be the duet skate at the end of the episode.
