One of my favourite things about the Orphan Black finale is that, despite the happy ending, Sarah is still not completely alright. She doesn’t have Mrs. S anymore and without the constant life-threatening situations, is scared of things going back to the way they were before she found Beth and stole her identity. The adrenaline has worn off and she no longer knows what to do and fears going back to her old bad habits. She skips out on her high school exam, tries to sell the house, and isolates herself.
She sees other people being happy with the lives they could go back to but doesn’t know how to do that and doesn’t want to burden them. And it’s painful to watch but it’s realistic. So often on television we see characters go on traumatic journeys and be perfectly alright once they’re over. We see the credits roll and assume all is well. But that’s not always the case in real life. Trauma follows you sometimes, like a shadow from another room. It’s not all consuming, but it never quite leaves and it wears you down over time. Often to the point where you feel like a hollow shell. You force yourself to be happy for others but quietly resenting them because they don’t understand what you’re going through and you’re too exhausted to reach out to them so you get caught in a vicious, often destructive, cycle. And we see this here with Sarah. Not only that, but we see her start to break out of it as well.
Sarah has an excellent support network of her sisters. Not only are they there, but they reach out to her. They listen to her, share their stories, help each other. While she always had Felix and Mrs. S, Sarah didn’t really have any good friends and was kind of a drifter. But now she’s more grounded. She has people who she can reach out to and who will always be there for her. And in real life, having a good support network can make an incredible difference in how a person is able to recover from traumatic events and situations. I love this show, all five seasons of it, but those last twenty minutes of Sarah trying to rebuild her life mean more to me than I can put into words right now. Thank you Orphan Black.
Replace the sex in "Grey's Anatomy" with Paperwork, and you have life as a junior doctor.
So this is the trope I don’t get in medical dramas: sex in the on call rooms as (if nothing else), a junior doctor.
Ignoring the whole “professionalism” thing, the logistics just do not compute.
I can’t take two seconds to shovel food into my mouth without getting paged. I try to pee, you can guarantee one of my patients is going to code. Take a coffee break, clinical reviews.
It’s like a law of being a junior - you are the hospital’s bitch. The number of times I’ve been on my way to a clinical review, downing the ice cold coffee I bought and tried to enjoy before I was paged to do some “SUPER URGENT WARD JOB”.
So how the crap can they find time to bang in the on call room?!
Jackie x Donna ★/☆/☾/♡ (sorry if this is to much, but I am loving these so)
☾ - sleep headcanon
Jackie is always the little spoon, ALWAYS. She likes to be cuddle because Donna is always warm and her breast feel soft against her back, it makes Jackie feel safe.
When Donna does’t feel like spooning, they sleep like this, with Donna being in the dude’s position:
★ - sad headcanon
Jackie hasn’t seen her mother ever since she told her she was with a woman. She also knows Pam keeps telling people Jackie hasn’t found the right partner yet and that’s why she is not married.
It sometimes make her cry out of nowhere, just to remember that.
☆ - happy headcanon
“Every night it’s girl’s night!”, Jackie says as she gets ready everything she needs to give a make over to her girlfriend. Donna just rolls her eyes but smiles as Jackie tells her about her day while they are doing each other’s nails on their bed.
♡ - romantic headcanon
For Valentine’s, Jackie starts giving Donna a small gift every day until the 14th. While Donna always makes big plans for date night for the day.
They are always trying to surpass their own game every year, which makes it more fun for both of them, and bigger the surprise for the other when they see what their loved one has planned for them.
That moment when both you and your crush reach for something
at the exact same time. :3 Yes it’s a cliché but it’s a super cute cliché,
especially when the people in question haven’t admitted to liking each other
yet. I felt like brainstorming for my story yesterday and also wanted to draw
something cute and fluffy, so I sketched up a possible moment from the upcoming
chapter. (And then wrote about 2-3000 words last night in one sitting and was
up ‘til 5 am, oops.)
BUT long story short, I am still working on Legacy, even if
headaches, low motivation and general malaise has been getting me down lately! And I’m still going to be drawing these two dorks because I heart them a ton. :3
