goodbye to boston

A Seasick Crocodile

Summary: After one too many bad setups, Emma thinks the best way to get out of another blind date is to tell her sister-in-law she already has a boyfriend. But when her brother makes the assumption she’s dating Killian Jones, Emma just might need a Christmas miracle to pull it off.

 “So I know you really didn’t like August all that much, but I was thinking–”

“No.” Emma glares across the table at her sister-in-law, trying – and failing – to keep from brandishing her fork like a club. “No more Christmas party blind dates.”

“I know the last few–”

“Seriously? Mary Margaret, he was gay. You set me up with a guy who doesn’t even like women. The one before him turned out to be a skip. The one before him was Ruby’s ex.” Emma ticks them off one at a time on her fingers, her irritation only growing as she relives each horrible date. “So this year, I’m saying no. Absolutely not.”

“What have you got to lose?” Mary Margaret asks, completely undeterred by Emma’s protest.

“I already have a boyfriend!” Emma blurts out, reaching for her glass of wine and taking a large gulp to hide the lie. It’s the only thing she can think of to shut Mary Margaret up, since her brother is sitting uselessly next to his wife with an amused look on his face – amusement she is pleased to note disappears the moment she makes her announcement.

So, it kind of just hit me that I’m going to be leaving the Boston area in a month, moving on to (hopefully) better and brighter things in Vermont. This is the first in a series of Goodbye Boston tributes I’m doing, sort of as a way to cope with moving from the place where I’ve lived for 22 out of my 24 years of existence.

This is a scene from a particularly great afternoon spent with close friends (all very talented cartoonists too) in June.

There is a scene in the trailer at about 1:30. It's really short .. after Jamie in Culloden and before Claire covering her mouth with her hand ... a woman - I think on a table having sex? - is that Claire? What do you think? And could you post a picture and do your magic with it? Thank you very much!

Hi Anon! 

I believe what you’re referring to is Claire and Frank, but they’re on the floor:

That second part where Claire covers her mouth is when she’s saying goodbye to Boston:

Hope this helps! ;-D

I’m really happy. He’s an amazing player I really enjoy to play with and we’ve created a lot of chemistry over the years. I was getting a little worried now with him playing with Sid,” Bergeron said with a laugh. “I’m really happy it’s done and we can move forward for himself and also for us as a team. I can’t say enough about him. It’s well deserved and he’s an amazing player.
