i still love nick

  • what she says: "g*psy"* by fleetwood mac is a really good song
  • what she means: "g*psy" by fleetwood mac is perhaps one of the most beautiful songs ever written. we, as a planet, do not deserve it. before stevie nicks even sings a note, it is already the most goddamn gorgeous song. the first fifteen seconds alone. everyone will always cite works like "silver springs" and "the chain" for insight to stevie's relationship with lindsey and while those are valid, her clear nostalgia and near-longing for a simpler but meaningful time with him makes the love they genuinely had very evident. they shared a single mattress in a shitty apartment, in a room she would decorate with small trinkets to cheer it up, and this is the place the now-famous musician thinks of. that place, and that time. what must she feel every time she sings it? what must lindsey feel? the "lightning strikes, maybe once, maybe twice" line to describe love alone, jfc. this isn't even touching on the loss of her friend robin anderson, the other inspiration behind the song, who passed away and was "dancing away from you now" as stevie was writing it. it's heartbreaking, it's evocative, and furthermore--

But now we must sleep

I was gonna redraw this scene w/every detail:

But then I realized that these two need more art of them together. :3 And I didn’t want my silly au to get in the way.

Enjoy! (And I totally support this ship <3 It’s so cute)

Nick Bottom is a drama queen.

I’m really curious to see how all of this will end up. The writers are writing Nick SO into Reagan since her debut episode. He has story lines about her even when she’s not there (“The Last Thanksgiving” won’t be the first time). And, well, the writers are not rebuilding Nick and Jess’ relationship how I thought they should on season 6. If it wasn’t for Jess openly saying she’s still in love with Nick I’d say their relationship is exactly like on S4 again. Now she even might develop some tiny feelings for Robby.

Now seeing all that I have so many questions, like, to what point will the writers invest on Nick and Reagan’s relationship? In what point will the tables turn? When is Nick is going to stop putting Reagan in a pedestal and how is this going to happen? Is Nick going to realize that Reagan is not the one for him on his own or she’ll have to dump him for someone to point that? What will make Nick suddenly realize he still has feelings for Jess? What’s the purpose of Robby? Does anyone think Nick is going to fee threatened by him at some point, somehow, and that would make his feelings for Jess come up again? How would Robby act as an catalyst for Nick’s feelings for Jess if even the perfect Ryan or Dr. Sam never did?

TBH, I don’t like the build up so far. I’m not enjoying this Nick and Jess development, I’m not gonna lie. But I’ll still be here waiting, curious to see what will happen.
