I’m not an avid Marcellus/Marcia shipper, for me, this moment is pretty darn perfect. Like, has anyone actually visualized what the full scene looks like?
Marcellus (stumbling forward): Septimus- Marcia!
Marcia (rising and looking around): Marcellus? Marcellus! What were you thinking-”
Marcellus: Is it you? We thought- we feared you had-”
Marcia: The moving chamber- and you and Septimus-”
Marcellus: Is it really you, Marcia?
Marcia (seizes his hands): Of course it’s me-
Marcellus: You’re not dead-
Marcellus: It is you- you’re alive-
Marcia (Irritated): Yes, Marcellus, I am real-”
Marcellus: Oh, thank goodness…
(They both pause and realize their hands are joined and Septimus is staring at them.)
