no but you know what i would love to see in season 2 (even though i know it’ll probably never happen)? for joyce and hopper to have a heartfelt conversation about everything that happened in their lives up until the point where the show started.
they are sitting next to each other or across the other on the table, nursing their drinks and each left to their own thoughts and then somebody breaks the silence
hopper starts talking about sarah, things he never mentioned to anybody else, not even flo (bc lbh flo’s like a mother figure to him and she probably knows him better than himself most of the times), about how his marriage fell apart, about how he felt when his ex-wife got married again, and then got pregnant again, and he was there, stuck in this… limbo, just navigating through life not even trying to pick up the pieces because he felt everything he’s even been had just melted away, vaporized, gone, just gone forever.
and joyce listens, she really listens, not saying anything but giving him the comfort he needs, even if it’s silently, because they too are still testing the waters, they’re just back into this camaraderie but they trust each other anyway.
and joyce talks about lonnie, about her marriage, doomed from the start but how she believed she and lonnie could have made things works (she doesn’t know how she could’ve been so naive). how she used to feel worthless and never good enough for her sons and for her husband, even working her ass off to provide for them all, trying to make sure her boys knew she loved them, gathering all the strength inside her to finally let go of the hell she lived in, learning not to care when the whole town started talking about her behind her back (thick skin, joyce, you always had it) and how none of these matter anymore because she would go to the end of the world for jonathan and will (and he knows it, he whispers so softly he’s not sure she’s heard him - she has).
and it’s cathartic for them both, it’s all they truly needed to finally turn these pages, finish those chapters, start fresh with their strengths renewed.
(side by side, yes, but that’s a realization for another night.)
Already missing my gal 😪 But omg these pizzas last night were out of this world 🚀🌍 Flo got the marinara with potato & broccoli and I got the margarita with cherry tomatoes 🍕 🍕🍕 @fedbywater we’ll be back 🙌🏽✨
weekes has said he was against what happened to Thane Krios in ME3 - that is, players having no choice over their LI’s fate in Mass Effect 3 (Thane dying no matter what)
he wrote Mordin’s story in ME3 - AND THERE IS A WAY to have Mordin live, even tho that character DID things most people find horrible, & Mordin was having a redemption arc. (ok, there are huge consequences, but we can’t expect no less!)
if there’s more dragon age content, he wants to give closure to solavellan!
he’s now LEAD WRITER of dragon age
i’ve read his personal books series… and having read it, I TRUST HIM EVEN MORE to give us a CHOICE in the end (the consequences may be tough though) (read the book, btw, they’re awesome)
