I’ve been reblogging and fangirling on my FB all day about this but…
THIS IS WHY I STILL SHIP SO HARDCORE AFTER TWENTY YEARS.
They are OTP. Sarah attests to it, David has given interviews for eons about how he knows they end up together and now even Joss admits it’s the greatest love story he’s ever written.
THEY ARE OT-MOTHERFREAKIN’-P.
ARGUMENT IS INVALID. I CAN NOW DIE A HAPPY SHIPPER.
Also, it should be noted that David has maintained for years that he doesn’t do reunions – OF ANY KIND. He hates them - he prefers to move forward to new projects. He’s been maintaining this mantra since at least 2003 – FOURTEEN YEARS AGO.
That’s also another concept that makes this so interesting – you could tell DB was a bit uncomfortable/anxious – yet when it comes to SMG, there’s this camaraderie and closeness that they have…it’s unlike any other. I think he went back on his anti-reunions mantra because of SMG and their mutual adoration for one another, not to mention this ship. He still goes on record to this day and thanks her for a lot of the great successes in his career, and that RL friendship and their fictional pairing is still the ONE thing that he looks back on when he refers to the Whedonverse.
What are you feelings on Fall of Lenster and its interpretations of Jugdral canon?
First of all I am super duper happy that Quan’s mom, Alfiona, existed and was a badass knight instead of a nameless woman who died in childbirth like Siggy’s mom.
(i have something against this trope)
I’m miffed however at Quan saying all his family comes from the Nova line - does it imply that Quan might have had siblings, or cousins who could have minor noba? Are there more minor noba people around in Manster (what kind of holy blood Fergus’ mom had?)?
However I loved Reidric’s crowning moment of glory - and how he has always been a backstabbing piece of slime. It’s really fitting how someone like Reidric was the one to betray his kings and ultimately lead to Calf’s demise. A holy blood less nobody like Reidric ! It’s awesome, for him, and tragic for the Leonsters. I think it’s written how it was a shame for such a great warrior to be defeated by Raydrick - who - to add to the injury - beheaded him!
(and took his head and showed it to everyone bragging about having defeated Calf which oddly takes me back to another guy. Has Mananan let a war cry when he held his son in law’s head?)
And we also have some interactions between Finn and everyone, Finn and his new lieges now that Quan’s dead and how they “entrust Leif” to him, Finn and Raquie - who is in her badass warrior phase now, eons away from that moeblob in heroes - how they escaped the castle, how randoms tried to buy them time, how Glade (yes him) also plays a part in Leif’s escape…
Nah, definitely Leonster’s fall is a good read (and a must read if i may add if you truly want to get the broader FE5 Jugdral picture). I don’t know if it’s considered Canon as in game-canon, but for all intents and purposes, to me it is.
…because people who talk about their dreams are actually trying to tell you things about themselves they’d never admit in normal conversation. It’s a way for people to be honest without telling the truth.
