I am SO incredibly excited to share a little piece of my heart with you today!
I wrote Midnight Air about a year ago, at a time of great heartache. How beautiful it is that the things that break us also bring us the most light. I had no idea this moment of vulnerability would take me on such a journey and connect me to so many hearts. For this I am infinitely grateful.
HUGE THANK YOU to every single person that has helped me get here. You know who you are! A very special thank you to Teon Gibbs for recording/ producing the track. And for getting behind my EP! I’d also like to thank Hugo Alejandro for capturing my emotion in this song so stunningly through your artwork!
Gratitude all around - thanks for listening guys! (:
Also don't agree on awards for either. I wonder if people in this fandom watch anything other than OL. There's a lot of well written tv and consistently amazing performances out there. Cait has really improved from S1 and gives a solid performance, but not always exceptional. Sam has his moments, but isn't consistent from ep to ep. HW awards aren't a meritocracy in the first place, but imo to be a contender you need consistency and much stronger writing to showcase. Sorry, OL is not top tier tv.
Both are good, but not great.
So many better shows!! Outlander is inconsistent.
The Good Doctor and Freddie Highmoore comes to mind.
Because I love Carol so much that I need to say this. That’s why.
Here are a few more of my thoughts on Carol in “Not Tomorrow Yet.”
If you dislike Tobin or watch TWD only for the C@ryl ship (never thought we’d hit a place where I’d censor my own ship tag, but wow, wacky fandom is wacky), you won’t want to read this. Cheers, and happy scrolling!
OH MAN i’m gonna do my top 5 per season because AS USUAL i have too many feelings
1x01: pilot. i just have to stick the pilot here bc LOOK HOW FAR WE HAVE COME. remember when they could barely stand to look at each other?? lmao idiots. and i love the iconic lines: “breaking the law to keep you from becoming chancellor was the easiest decision i’ve ever made” little do you know, abby. little do you know. and “that’s the difference between us, kane. i choose to make sure that we deserve to stay alive.” GET REKT.
1x05: twilight’s last gleaming. aka the ep where i feel like they really start to ~get each other. and we have that great little scene where kane tells abby he has men monitoring the radio in case there is word from raven. and abby thanks him (looking all confused and surprised that he’s on her side for once) AND HE STARES AT HER FOR AN INAPPROPRIATELY LONG AMOUNT OF TIME. BLESS.
1x09: unity day. marcus loses mama kane. abby is compassionate. i am cry.
1x11: the calm. MARCUS CRAWLING THROUGH A BOILING HOT MAINTENANCE SHAFT TO SAVE HIS PEOPLE AND FINDING ABBY AND CRADLING HER AND SMILING LIKE HE DIDN’T JUST HATE HER EXISTENCE 10 EPISODES AGO IT’S FINE I’M FINE.
1x13: we are grounders (part 2). self-explanatory tbh but okay. marcus being a self-sacrificing moron. abby looking legitimately terrified at the thought that he would be gone (i mean???). the hand holding. the protectiveness. the looks. the everything. “there has to be another way.” and then ofc the end of the ep with them looking at earth for the first time together !! so nice. so good. so pure.
2x03: repercussions. duhh gotta include the shock-lashing ep. VERY important in their development not only as individuals but also in their relationship. this ep really flips a switch in marcus and he realizes he maaaaaybe has not been making the best decisions as a leader. AND LETS TALK ABOUT THE WAY HE LOOKS AT HER DURING THE SHOCK-LASHING. NO LET’S NOT BECAUSE I CAN’T HANDLE THAT LOOK. anyway then he gives abby the chancellor pin and marches off to save the world. i cry.
2x08: spacewalker. ♪ reunited and it feeeels so gooooood ♪
2x09: remember me. oh my god there are so many great little kabby moments in this ep SLAY ME it’s one of my favorites. the campfire scene. the flirting they are totally flirting in that scene fight me. abby’s heart eyes. and then marcus being all protective of abby on the way to/in tondc when they’re around the grounders. just??? all?? of???? the little???? background moments?????? they’re so married.
2x13: resurrection. abby ‘must save the bae’ griffin. rubble truth talks. perfection.
2x16: blood must have blood (part 2). uM?? marcus being a complete wreck as abby is being tortured. the repetition of “there has to be another way.” his little jog to the table to free her. holding her hand on the way back to arkadia. etc. etc. kabby gold.
3x01: wanheda (part 1). STARTING SEASON 3 OFF GRAND. abby being comfortable enough to sleep around him??? DOMESTIC AF. heart eyes all over the place. ridiculous sexual tension. i’m so alive.
3x03: ye who enter here. BICKERING + SUPPORT. HAND ON HAND ON SHOULDER. AND THEN THE MOST GLORIOUS POLIS DATE EVER TO EXIST. ABBY ‘HEART EYES’ GRIFFIN AND MARCUS ‘HEART EYES’ KANE. SO MUCH TOUCHING AND SO MUCH PURE HAPPINESS. BYE.
3x04: watch the thrones. **battle couple mode activated**
3x09: stealing fire. NEED. I. SAY. ANYTHING???????? THE ULTIMATE KABBY EPISODE?????????????????? i still have not recovered. i can’t even put it into words rn but you guys know. you know. this is THE Kabby Episode™
3x13: join or die. it almost pains me to put this on this list. ALMOST. just because it was completely not what i expected and my heart still hurts bc that was not our abby. but really, it’s a very important episode for kabby. it’s more build-up for what’s to come in the finale. and that makeout scene doesn’t really count tbh BUT it was hella hot and gives me hope for future scenes lollllll. but uh. how about MARCUS KNOWING WITHIN SECONDS THAT THAT WASN’T REALLY ABBY. AND I MEAN. LET’S TALK ABOUT THE FACT THAT MARCUS IS WILLING TO DIE FOR HER??? kabby is endgame af and they are so in love. /sobs
