Dudes, I have been waiting all season for this kind of movement in Cosima’s storyline.
Yes, she’s a TOTAL brat, but with good reason.
Cosima is very aware that Delphine is looking for a cure. She also knows that Delphine is willing to do really sketchy stuff to do it. In short, she doesn’t want to need her help. With Kira whisked away to an undisclosed location, how far will Delphine go? Use Sarah? Helena? Helena’s precious cargo?
Cosima also feels like she’s burdening people when she’s sick. She spent the better part of last season not telling anyone about her illness. So she puts on the show. I feel great. Everything’s fine. But, in reality, she’s Leslie Knope trying to convince Ann Perkins she can do cartwheels. This time, she’s getting called out on it. You know it’s bad when Alison calls you out on your shit.
I don’t know how trustworthy Shay is, but to Cosima, she’s a safe harbor. She’s the first person we’ve met on the show who just loves being around Cosima for her awesomeness, and not her cloneness. (Again, as far as we know. I’ll be hella broken if Shay is indeed shady.) She treats Cosima like a fellow human. She hasn’t lied to her, or tried to manipulate her, she’s just Shay. Someone to talk to. Or make out with. Someone who is warm and comforting when you reveal you have a scary disease eating you alive.
If I’m mad about anything, it’s that it took 7 episodes to see this kind of movement in Cosima’s storyline.
The fact that Scott McCall went from a kid who once answered a question about steroids with ‘My mom does all the grocery shopping’ to being a True Alpha who isn’t afraid to stand up to a hunter just gives me a lot of feels.
Can we just take a moment to appreciate “the giggle”.
Emma “Walls As High As A Beanstalk” Swan giggled.
She is *not* the giggling type.
This is a big fucking deal.
Hello, character development.
She feels comfortable as hell with Killian. And she’s flirting showing off her magic and enjoying it. Embracing it. The way he encouraged her to. So she thinks he’ll be impressed and encouraging and his usual sassy self.
But he’s not, because he hates every second he has to keep his cursed lips a secret from her. It’s killing him, being close to her, seeing her gleeful and flirting with him and letting him in, because it’s all he ever wanted. And now he needs to shut her down to protect her.
Does he wanna see something even more impressive? Of course he does, Em. He wants to put his lips on all your impressive places, but he can’t. And you have no idea how much he’s torturing himself by spending time with you.
You’re finally letting down your walls, wanting to move on - WITH HIM - and he’s hurting because he’s never been anything but true and honest with you. Until now.
And you just giggled. That giggle would have made him light up so brightly he could power Storybrooke for a month. But right now, you’re breaking his heart. And that’s breaking mine.
Late night concept mouse doodle of the MC! Didn’t exactly intend this to be his first appearance, but I gotta start somewhere (more “official looking” art will come sometime next month). The MC currently does NOT have a name. The above is simply a late night doodle of his current designs.
MC has a double life. But nothing cool like a “spy” or an “assassin.” At home, he is quiet, secluded, and generally treated poorly by his family. On his free days, he is… Perhaps a performer? Like this, he is his “true self” and his personality is completely opposite of his “normal” personality.
HELLO NEW YOU is a work in progress game by SGT-Babyhands. The above post has information subject to change along the way.
Thank you for following the development of HELLO NEW YOU.
This entire arc this guy (Xander Pane) has been leading his terrorist group around and threatening everyone with bombs and when he runs into Elecman it’s revealed that, when reprogrammed, Elecman had nearly killed him and in the process destroyed one of his eyes
What does Elecman do when he realizes this?
He apologizes to the terrorist because he genuinely feels guilty. He’s like “I know I hurt you and even though it won’t make up for it, I’m sorry.” And he hopes it means at least something.
