Logan was sitting on the couch, trying to do work on his computer. Except he can’t. His hands lepta twitching, he couldn’t write sentence good. His mind was blank but to full at the same time. He figured this was some sort of anxiety (they had just uploaded a video and only then he had noticed continuity errors), but all of the tricks for helping Thomas’ anxious trait rendered useless for himself.
He had just slammed his laptop shit as Roman and Anxiety walked in, hands linked. Anxiety immediately noticed that something was off about Logan. He exchanged a few words with the prince, reached up and kissed his cheek, watching him walk out. He then slowly moves over to the logical trait, waving his hand to get his attention.
“Hey, Lo, you okay?”
“Yes. No. Yes. No.” Logan’s face was blank, but fearful. Anxiety carefully sat down next to him, mindful to not be to close.
“Do you want me to go get Patton?”
“No no no that’s not who I need right now.”
Anxiety moved onto his next idea. “Do you need any kind of physical-” His sentence was interrupted by Logan’s hand shooting out and snatching his own. Logan didn’t initiate any more, so he asked “Do you want to watch TV or something? Something fun like Steven Universe?”
Logan nodded slightly, but didn’t move except for squeezing Anxiety’s hand. Anxiety switched on the TV, letting the cheerful theme song play.
They watched about ten episodes, and Anxiety made sure all of them were light-hearted and fun. He could feel Logan’s grip getting looser and gum becoming more aware, eventually letting go of his hand completely. They sat there in silence for a few minutes, watching the screen as Greg and Steven discussed the epidemic of of square pizza.
Eventually, Logan turned to the other and said “Okay, I think I’m ready to go find Patton now.”
“Yeah, that’s good.”
Logan stood up and was at the hallway door when he turned around and said “Anxiety, if I’m ever in a state like that again, may I come to you for comfort? I’ll also go to Patton, considering he’s my lover, but you seem to have a better grasp on reality then Patton or Roman, and that may be more beneficial for me.”
Anxiety smirked and said “Yeah, of course. Those two can be over the top sometimes. Anytime, Logan.”
The logical trait grinned and murmured a ‘thank you’ before going to find his partner. After a few minutes, Anxiety got up and clambered to Roman’s room, opening the door, climbing onto the bed and curling up next to the prince.
Roman smiled down at him and said “Hello my darling.”
“What was the trouble with Logan?”
“He was just a bit out of it, he’s talking with Mo right now.”
Roman kissed his forehead and said “I’m glad you could help.”
Anxiety grinned to himself and said “Yeah, me too.”
So, like some of y’all, the finale left me feeling a little empty. Same thing happened last season, but last season had little bby!wrenchers in it so I at least had that to comfort me. Anyways, this season finale didn’t feel like an ending like the last season did. It felt like it could go on for another season due to the nature of the abrupt time skip and the events leading up to the closing credits, and that’s what kind of kills me because we might not get another season, and if we do, it’ll probably be set in another time because that’s how each season has worked throughout both the series and the movie itself. Sure there are some signifying connections between each season (i.e Wrench and the blatant movie references), but in the end, each season is their own case; their own story, which each have a beginning and an end.
This season, however, didn’t have an end. It was left open-ended actually, and we’re left questioning whether or not someone is going to come and let Varga go free. I, for one, think that after a season spent of the future getting the best of Gloria, that she’ll finally get the upper hand as the automatic devices that finally recognize that she is there are to be taken into account. But that’s not the point. The point is that there is no ending to either the case on which the story is centered around or to the characters that still remain because there is still a story to be told. The Fargo series isn’t based on actual truth, but they are formatted as such, and the way that this season ends breaks that cycle by not concluding the season in its usual manner.
So if we do get a new season, it needs to continue where season three left off, which means it will have to take place this year, and only this year. If it doesn’t, then it’s a betrayal of the series’ usual format. And if we don’t get another season at all, then we’ll be left to wonder.
