T minus 3 - inspiration

With Will and Hannibal having taken the leap, there are people left behind who now have to deal with their fear of an unleashed Hannibal but also with the fallout and the implications of Will’s becoming… Show us their perspective!

“Quality kiss, Doc. Good work.” ~Happy Quinn 

This kiss in “Dam Breakthrough” (2x12) officially reignited the Quintis flame and I am forever grateful for this moment. Then, I love it because while Happy blatantly asked Toby to kiss her, she did not expect him to respond with such passion and fervor. This is a side of Toby that is extremely attractive and oh so sexy.

In my opinion, there has been a steady progression of change in the Quintis kisses. While their earlier kisses are passionate and spur of the moment, their more current kisses still have that passion but also have a gentler, more thoughtful side to them (if that makes sense? - I haven’t slept in almost two days, so my brain may be lagging behind). From their first kiss in “Once Bitten, Twice Die” to their (well, soon-to-be) most recent kiss at the moment they are pronounced husband and wife in “Something Burrowed, Something Blew,” the evolution of the passion, care, and emotion in these kisses - to me - is representative of the evolution of Quintis as a couple. Thus, while I love the kiss in 2x12, I can’t choose a favorite kiss. They are all wonderful to me in some shape, fashion, and form.

QUINTIS WEDDING COUNTDOWN: Day 5

Day 5 - Favourite Hug 

The options include: 1x12, 2x17, 2x18, 3x07  (and that’s it, basically, because we haven’t gotten to see any more full hugs on screen)

While they’re each precious, I’m gonna go with the 3x07 proposal/Cd-baby hug, because of the whole scene and what we saw and heard just before that  hug that was both about them comforting each other at the moment of “sadness” & their sweetness and joy for their future marriage and family

QUINTIS WEDDING COUNTDOWN: Day 4

Day 4 - Favourite Kiss 

The options are: 1x16 (almost kiss), 1x18, 2x12, 2x16, 2x20, 3x08 (almost kiss), 3x13 + 2x17 & 3x08 & 3x12 & 3x18 forehead/top-of-the-head kisses


I love them all, because they all fit into the moments, and are special in their own way, but my fave Quintis kiss so far is the 2x16 “reveal kiss” & my fave non-lips kiss so far is the 3x12 forehead-kiss

I went through all the times Dark made an appearance in yesterday’s videos again, including the old ones (don’t blink, don’t move and relax). Here are my thoughts (this turned out way longer than planned, and it’s not even all, yay for way to much theorizing?):

If you’ve found the Exit video, you know that after you go through the door, you see Dark smiling at you and you get put back into prison. Dark made the loop. Like @caustic-synishade​ pointed out here (and Mark “confirmed”): he wants you to get stuck in the game. Now I was thinking, why the prison? Mark even said at the beginning that he’s seen us before, so that would make more sense right? But consider this: the only way you can get Mark killed in the game, without Dark making a clear appearance, is by choosing to split up. That event only occurs when you escape the prison again, Dark wants you to find this other option. This way, you make it easier for him to take over. He doesn’t even have to go through all of the trouble of killing Mark, you took care of that. (More on Dark taking over later)

So, Dark makes a clear appearance when you choose the Horror play in the theatre. There are some (okay, way too many) things that caught my attention regarding his powers. First, Mark disappears. Dark appears on the stage, your vision gets stretched and weird. Next thing you know, you’re somewhere else, with Dark in front of you. This, suddenly appearing somewhere else, happens a lot in the videos with and without Dark. The ones with Dark are more sudden, unlike the other ones, where Mark hugs you, puts his hands before your eyes, etc. I think he also did this during the Exit video, like I pointed out before, when you are suddenly put back in the prison. This makes me think that Dark is capable of some serious telekinesis (I have so much more to say about this! So I’ll probably do a different post on what I think Dark’s powers are, with more detail and research).

His behaviour is also very interesting (during the Horror, Freedom and Left videos)! Like @http-jack​ says in this post (thank you for putting my thoughts together so well!), Dark is serious business. He wears a suit, makes sure he speaks clearly, puts his hands behind his back and has good posture. This guy is bursting of self-confidence and he doesn’t play around. But that doesn’t mean he never loses his temper. Every single time he raises his voice, you can see that he didn’t mean that to happen. He fixes his tie and jacket, sighs and continues his speech. If we say that the options Dark gives you at the end of Horror are the “canon” times he made an appearance, then he’s been around since June 2012. More than enough time to get seriously pissed off.

Not only his behaviour, but also the things he says lead me to believe that Dark is anything but happy with Mark.I’ve been pushed aside. Replaced. Mocked. And then, he had the gall to not invite me to his little adventure with you. No more. Never again. It’s my turn now.
He’s angry with Mark’s arrogance and ignorance towards him. He’s waited long enough, giving Mark the change to do this willingly, but if Mark won’t let him in, he’ll do it himself. He’s jealous of all of the attention Mark’s been getting, while he was humiliated and forgot. He’s desperate to show off how stupid Mark was for ignoring him. “Take your pick, anything of four different choices. More than he could’ve ever given you. (…) If dinner is what you want, then I can provide. And I can take you wherever you’d like to go. (…) I can give you anything! (…) There’s nothing you, or he, can do to stop me!” He shows off how strong he is and how weak Mark is beside him. He straight up says he can give you so much more than Mark, you just have to let him in, it’s as simple as that.

Dark’s loving all the attention he’s finally getting. He’s putting up one hell of a show. He shows off his powers, mocks Mark and he pretends he gives you a choice (with the loop the choice at the end of Horror). Even though Mark puts up a fight, I don’t think Dark ever really leaves or gave any of us a choice:

I’ll talk more about the difference in the speech of Mark and Dark in the Right and Left videos in the powers post, but at the end of both videos, it’s clear Dark is still there. When you “accidentally” kill Mark, it’s clear Dark’s still here and here to stay. “But now we’re going to be together, forever.”
If you actually shoot Dark, he’s not gone. In the Right video, your vision is still somewhat distorted, but the actual Mark is there. Dark never left and he didn’t actually give you a choice, he took control. It’s his turn now.

Now, I was thinking, why is Dark so obsessed with getting a connection between you and him? “I’ve been waiting a long time to get some, personal time between us. (…) So, now that we are here together, we can really get know each other.”
Consider this: he needs us. He can take over Mark, but Mark’s able to push him out. But we’re not. Mark’s there in his physical form, we’re not. He knows that Mark cares a lot about us, so what does he do? Make us suffer. He loves to see Mark suffer (in don’t blink and relax, Mark’s hurt in some way), and he knows he can hurt him by hurting us.

If you read the whole thing, thank you! I’d love to hear your thoughts on this. I’ll do way more theorizing on things like: Is Dark there the entire time? What are his powers? What even is he? How far does this rabbit hole even go? Who knows Dark, who knows.
