i was the first thing i thought of when i saw it

anonymous asked:

Why is WA's love so beautiful? The look they gave each other when Cecile asked how the proposal went down. Even Barry blushing when Iris said that he sang to her. Also, I missed this the first time, but when Cecile asked Barry if he sings, I saw Iris nodding her head, going "Mm-hmm", while Barry said "Not as good as Joe".

I don’t know, Anon. Why does the sun rise & set? Why does the tide come in and out? Why do stars twinkle? It’s a mystery & one I will not question.

As far as that small blip of happiness, I actually thought Iris’s hesitation was b/c she was debating which proposal story to tell or if she should tell both. Lmao. But you’re prob right. They were prob just gushing over the whole thing. And naturally Barry didn’t want the spotlight on him for too long. It was a very pleasant, happy moment.

“I can get a bit insecure about my health condition. In the beginning I was worried that I wouldn’t be able to give her everything she needs. Because I can’t lift her. I can’t run after her. It takes me longer to do things, so I thought she might get frustrated with me. But none of those worries came true. She’s perfectly fine with our reality. She’s very patient. When we get out of the car, she knows that the wheelchair goes first, then Daddy, then Mommy, then Olga. She’s very happy sitting on my lap. And she loves to lie in bed with us. She even tries to help me. In the house I don’t use my wheelchair because I can walk while holding onto my husband’s shoulders. Olga saw us doing this recently, and she came up behind me and tried to help by pushing my legs.”

*What have you thought about all the signs at the protest rallies that quote song lyrics from “Hamilton”?*


It’s just really humbling is the best way of putting it. I saw some first-hand when I participated in the women’s march here in London on my day off. I saw a couple of “Love is love is love” signs and that was very amazing.


It’s so funny because “Hamilton” is about not being able to control your legacy, and I believe that’s true. You can only control the thing you make. And then the way that lands on the world and the way that continues from generation to generation is completely out of your control. And so you’re grateful when you find that thing you wrote resonates with other people.


*You probably didn’t imagine the lyric “Immigrants — we get the job done” would resonate in the context it’s being used now.*


No. I had Lafayette and Hamilton on the eve of a battle just finding some common ground. That was my job as a dramatist. I could never have imagined it being picked up as a callback like this.

Allow me to rant about Maggie and Sanvers

When we first meet Maggie, we learned three basic things about the character: she’s an out and proud lesbian, she’s a cocky little shit, she cares a lot about people. For a while, this is all we had to hold on to. Maggie’s layers were added painstakingly slowly, and you had to pay attention to see what they were. Looking back, the traits that made Maggie Sawyer the woman we love, were always there, we just didn’t know it.
