Okay, so I’m doing a post with all the conflicting dates from the show, because honestly this is driving me bananas. Tagging @nekosmuse because we were having this discussion earlier and @inkyfishes because they seem to know a lot about the background and have loads of cool metas.
I don't know what to say right now. I'm just so in shock of what happened to your family. To you. What do you say to someone when they going through a horrible ordeal without making it about you or sounding insensitive? I just hope you guys will be ok. *gives you big hug*
At this time, saying, “I’m sorry” and “I’ll be thinking of you” is really enough. Nothing that can be said will make us feel better or lighten our loads. Nothing more brings us any comfort. Just the support has been great and I’ve been trying to take the time to answer as many personally as I can. This is because I want you to know how it is appreciated, and it also gives me something to do…a distraction from the constant melancholy.
15. “I’d say, ‘why don’t we just have sex? Let’s get it on with right here on the table of this coffee shop!’ He better fucking say ‘yes’!” - Gillian Anderson

11. We’ve known each other for more than 21 years. We are best friends. And always will be.” - Gillian Anderson
10. “Gillian has beautiful eyes. Her eyes anchor me to the scene. They’re big and they’re blue and they’re wet.” - David Duchovny
9. “I think as you get older, I think if you’re lucky, if you’re maturing, the stuff that used to bother you, the little things, kind of evaporate and all that’s left is the heart. And that’s all we have left is just total appreciation of one another.” - David Duchovny
8. “Lying in bed in Jodhpur watching live NYCC panel. Miss you guys. Especially one of you.” - Gillian Anderson
7. “We see each other on rare and pleasant occasions and it’s nice. It’s a great relationship and I’m very fond of it and him.” - Gillian Anderson
6. “It’s magical and difficult, wondrous and painful, frustrating and joyous, as any intense , intimate relationship is.” - Gillian Anderson
5. It’s a little as if we have secrets between us. Everything is conveyed by communication beyond words. Perhaps, after all, you could interpret that as love.” - David Duchovny

3. “We have a connection, not just in the fact that we experienced that together, but we have, as two human beings, we have a connection and a camaraderie and a dynamic between the two of us that is also unique to me than any other relationship that I have in my life. There’s an intimacy there, that only exists there, in that particular way.” - Gillian Anderson
2. “David and Gillian stood in that room together alone, and held each other for a good five minutes. They didn’t talk, they didn’t move, they just held each other. Tears running down their faces.” - Kim Manners
1. “You could just see it in their faces, how much they truly did love each other. And that wasn’t just Dana and Fox, that was David and Gillian. They truly, truly loved each other. Oh, I never saw anything like it. I’ve been in this business all my life, literally. And I think David and Gillian’s relationship, Scully and Mulder, are one of the greatest male/female in TV history.” - Kim Manners
FAHC think themselves kings, call themselves rulers, act like they
built the city, like they did anything but burn it to the ground.
They are a blight upon Los Santos, they are a plague. There’s a
darkness in them, one no one can ignore, a corruption that runs deep
and irredeemable. It must have started somewhere, come from
something, but outsiders can only wonder if it was born from the
crew, spreading out across their domain or if it sunk into them from
the city itself. Some are perceptive enough to blame the leader, to
recognise the way he created this, the way he revels in the
wickedness of his domain, but even they will never know the answer,
never hear the true story of Ramsey’s decent.
grew up on the worst kind of stories of heaven and hell, of sin and
punishment and purgatory. Where glory is sacrifice and pain,
obedience and punishment. Where holy is the carrot you never quite
reach, the stick that reminds you of your place. He grew up making
sacrifice without reward, practicing obedience and still being
punished, looking up for answers and hearing nothing but his own
voice railing against broken promises.
has to give, and give it does; first patience, then forgiveness, then
faith. Then glass bottles and abandoned houses, then Geoff’s
knuckles, someone’s jaw. Someone’s skull. It’s not like Geoff was
looking to be a killer, he didn’t mean to keep crushing the life out
of people, but he couldn’t live in limbo forever and surely there was
no greater test. Surely this was as bad as anyone could be, this of
all things would blacken his soul, and still nothing struck him down.
Still nothing stood in his way. And that was that, really. Because if
you’re going to be bad you may as well be the worst. If you’re going
to fall you might as well plummet. There’s apathy and then there’s
anarchy, and when push comes to shove Geoff has never been an
he plummets, into the darkest corners of the city, into the bloodiest
jobs and nastiest gangs, into the kind of sin that is never forgiven.
The kind that no longer seeks forgiveness. Even when he takes a turn,
cleans up his act and stops rolling around with the lowest of the low
Geoff doesn’t look back. Doesn’t regret. He pulls himself together
but he doesn’t pull himself out, doesn’t even try, just thinks
bigger. Thinks about kingdoms, about empires, about the kind of power
that inspires awe. That inspires fear and respect. Obedience.
like misery, is always after company, always on the lookout for
similar minds, for those who can be dragged in, dragged down. Geoff
wasn’t exactly collecting angels, but an argument could be made that
the members of the FAHC are worlds worse together than any were
apart. That the monstrous parts of them came from somewhere. Came
from someone. Maybe it was inevitable regardless, maybe not, Geoff
doesn’t care either way; they’re his now and he’s never letting them
he does let go of, somewhere along the line, are some of his sharper
edges; splits who he has to be when he’s at work from who he is with
his crew, packs the nasty ruthlessness of Ramsey away and brings back
the more mellow aspects of Geoff. He learns to seperate fear from
respect, recognises that there are greater things than obedience,
that there are things worthy of sacrifice. Geoff stopped looking up
for answers a long time ago, stopped waiting for something to come
along and save him. Now he looks down at his own kingdom, dark and
dirty but entirely his own, and maybe it will never be holy but it’s
more salvation than he’d ever dreamed of.
