Can we talk for a second about how the roles are reversed here because I love this image and the symbolism it harbours. For months, Delphine has been the one to diagnose, examine and comfort Cosima through her illness and treatments. And now suddenly, that’s no longer the case; the patient is now treating the doctor. Look at Delphine, for once she isn’t locked on to Cosima, but rather what is happening to her. It’s almost as if she’s braced for impact. This is a vulnerability we’ve yet to see Delphine display. This is so much more than just an examination of a wound now healed, this is bringing a trauma into dialogue (perhaps for the first time since it happened), this is a revelation of sacrifices and promises and this is a declaration of love, the kind of love that says ‘I’d die for you’, ‘I’d fight for you’, ‘I’d come back for you’.
I feel bad because I really want to wear "feminine" clothes but I don't because mainly I'm worried about what my parents will say since they're already not really supportive. I'm afraid they'll say something like I thought you said you were a boy why are you wearing girls clothes? Or something.
