*sobs* (Can we see the hypothetical cradle!Loki?)

I didn’t expect Sigyn to get that far, like Thor stops her before she even gets close to the Cradle. BUT IF SHE DID I imagine the Loki clone would fall apart in her arms because a) Loki’s really alive so there’s no soul to put in the fake body and b) his DNA is alien and the Cradle is geared for Midgardian substances. 



“I-I don’t understand! Why isn’t it working?!”


In Pottermore, you were sorted to Gryffindor. Could you tell us
how you feel about that?
“Devastated. Heartbroken. Yeah, I was really not happy. I was filming the end of the documentary and they were like, just tap on something on the laptop so it looks like you’re busy. So I was like, OK. And they opened up Pottermore, and I thought, you know what, let’s do this. In fact, I did try and answer the questions to try and get Slytherin as the answer. And I think the computer saw through my attempt to try. I saw J.K. actually the next day and said there must be a glitch in the system. She guarantees me the Sorting Hat is never wrong.” - Tom Felton.

Saw your tag saying you liked the balcony scene. Really intrigued to know what you liked about it?!

Ok, so I have 10 (not kidding) versions of this question in my inbox. All because of my tags on a photoset I reblogged on Sunday. Ok. so here are a few things I love about the proposal scene:

I love all the contradictions

I love the proposal scene because I’m not a proponent of an Olitz marriage. Not until Fitz is no longer President, if that’s what Olivia wants.

I love the proposal scene precisely because it’s such a lie, and instead of pretending-is-what’s-real that the visuals represent, we get words that preserve the integrity of the Truman balcony in the end. Fitz initially tries to paper over a transactional proposition with flowers and candlelight that not even he believes in for the moment. Clearly we know that Olivia likes romance in the form of candlelight, a warm fire, roses (208, 308, 417). What she didn’t want was some trite proposal fantasy for a wedding she was being handled into. Fitz read the situation incorrectly. And this wasn’t ‘finding another way’ as he said two days earlier. No amount of Coming To America roses was going to make the marriage feel ‘right’ when they were absolutely starting with the wrong purpose. For Fitz it doesn’t matter because all he has ever wanted is Olivia. But it does matter for Liv. She’s fought too long and too hard to finally embrace her love for Fitz to jeopardize it by marrying him when she is not ready for the life that it presently entails. He was robbing her and the both of them of an authentic moment.

I love the song that’s playing–“Aint’ No Way” by Aretha Franklin. The following lines are apt:

I know that a woman’s duty
Is to help and love a man
And that’s the way it was planned

Oh but how can I, how can I, how can I
Give you all the things I can
If you’re tying both of my hands?

Stop trying to be someone you’re not
How cold and cruel is a man
Who paid too much for what he got?
And if you need me like you say, say you do
Oh then please, please
Please don’t you know that I need you?

Olivia can’t be who she is, and she can’t even help Fitz in the way she’s been able to if she becomes his wife while he’s President. Ain’t no way.

I love that Fitz drops the pretense about the ‘do over’ business, when really he’s talking about the fact that he doesn’t want to do some elaborate set up when he knows that this whole marriage thinks is really a distraction just so he can remain President. And the business of that is what he’d rather be doing. But I wanted to punch him for being so gotdamn obtuse about what getting married would mean for Olivia. It’s incidental for him, but not for Olivia. He was thinking about himself. Even that whole elaborate set up was about him, in a way—a means to a goal. As long as Olivia is in his life, that’s all that matters to Fitz. The how/when/where/why? Not so much.  That’s why he thinks it’s marriage writ large that she has a problem with. Ahh, he didn’t see her Vermont dream. Sigh.

I love that Fitz says “No man ever wants to do this.” I think that’s mostly true. They do it because they think that’s what women want. We’ve allowed ourselves to think that proposing marriage to someone must look a certain way in order to be considered ‘legitimate’ or memorable. What a lot of people really want is a good story to tell their friends. Why else are folks making elaborate YouTube videos of their engagements to live in perpetuity. That moment is for no one else but the people getting married.

I love that Fitz twice asks Olivia, “What do you want?” Because there ain’t no way for Fitz to love her the way she wants if he doesn’t know what she wants. She can’t answer the question. She can only deflect by telling him she doesn’t want some teenage girl’s fantasy, when that’s not the question he asked her. That’s very true to character, and it’s also a hard question—believe it or not. We’ve been wondering since 312 what Olivia’s goals and dreams are. Now that she’s realized one of them by embracing Fitz, what else does she want. I identified this, in my poster analysis, as one of her key challenges this season. We’re still waiting, but she’s been busy defending herself since 502. I know she’s going to get there.

Lastly, I love that Olivia and Fitz are both loveable idiots. Sigh.
