here is a big ol dump of day 2! i was going to try to do this systematically but hey it didnt work like that. if you are any of the cosplayers here PLEASE let me know so I can give you proper credit!!!
I made a malec playlist. You know that meme that goes “My hobbies include: switching between the same three apps for hours, not speaking to anyone for days at a time, listening to the same songs I’ve been listening to for 15 years, imagining myself in situations that will literally never exist”? <—- ME. So, I have a lot of indie-ish music I still listen to from years as an angsty teenager. Probably half of my music library comes from songs played on shows like The OC and Grey’s Anatomy. Honestly, I could use some new music and I would love to trade music that reminds you of Malec! I’ve linked these to YouTube, but this really was meant to listen to seamlessly from one track to the next. Feel free to message me… I can put this on zippyshare or something. :)
I think Dennis default assumes everyone attracted to men wants to sleep with him or can be Easily Convinced, and he defaults to very tactile things when he wants to control someone in an emotional way (Mac and Dee, obviously, but see him calming Charlie down in Extreme Home Makeover for instance, or even in the last episode where he gets RIGHT IN his face before the chanting).
so yes, on a particular level he knows Mac wants him because that is the Dennis Reynolds State of Mind, BUT. a few times in a row now his reaction to Mac saying things that are romantic and domestic is to be very confused. not grossed out or quickly moving past it, confused. ‘why our house?’ ‘our son, huh, weird.’
I feel like we’ve had it wrong. I feel like Dennis really doesn’t get it, that Mac is this in love with him, isn’t computing this idea that to Mac this is a relationship and a marriage even though to be honest, they are already as committed and married (dysfunctional and resentful, but MARRIED) as Mac is already gay. and that opens up a whole world of potential and I’m very excited for it personally.
