You know what I love in rewatching when Percy gives Vex her title - watching exactly when the cast reacts.
Matt obviously never breaks fucking character.
Marisha knew from the previous episode so she’s got this sort of smug smile the whole time like ‘yeah that’s right - he ‘bout to do That’
Travis kinda waits to the end like ‘oh shit he did That’
Sam gets A Look the second Percy says “it’s Lady Vex’ahlia” because, like much of the shippers, I’m pretty sure his mind went straight it ‘are we about to do a fake married trope???’
But Liam and Laura I love most, because Liam and Laura don’t react really (I mean Laura reacts a little to “it’s Lady Vex’ahlia” like ‘yes you have my attention’), but they don’t really really react until Percy says “Whitestone”.
Liam’s eyebrows shoot up and that, that is where Laura’s jaw just drops.
And that’s just… thinking of those reactions in terms of characters it works so well. Like I think both Vex and Vax were aware that Percy was being a Pretentious Dick on purpose to fuck with their asshole dad, and they were cool with it. And I think both of them wouldn’t have been THAT surprised if Percy had gone ‘fake married’ trope, or just pulled a convincing-sounding title out of his ass for the conversation.
But Percy gives her a part of Whitestone. Whitestone, which means everything to him. And it’s no wonder that Vex tells him (well, tells his dead body) that THAT is why it meant so much to her, THAT is what made her fall in love with him. He didn’t just give her a title, he gave her a part of him.
You ever think of all of the circumstances that brought you and another person together? How intricate each of the events that led up to you meeting were? Every moment had to be exactly how it was for you two to be exactly how you are together.
This one is for my sister @origamihoshi! She wanted her beloved fish child in doll form. As always, I tried a lot of new things here. Never given these dolls a hat before, much less one of Magikarp! Thanks ot her noodle limbs, she’s pretty top heavy because of that hat. But she turned out cute and that’s all that matters! And you can’t have Baba without Best, so I tried my hand at another pokemon.
