I went to the Michigan Antiquarian Book and Paper Show this weekend and picked up two new books! Some more niche Victorian studies and another book of poetry to add to my Vincent collection.

— Pickpockets, Beggars and Ratcatchers: Life in the Victorian Underworld, by Kellow Chesney

— Huntsman, What Quarry? by Edna St. Vincent Millay

A Michigan man walking down the street in subzero temperature was detained by a deputy for the suspicious behavior of walking with his hands in his pockets.

Brandon B Waxx McKean pulled his hands out of his pockets to begin video recording, which prompted the Oakland County sheriff’s deputy to pull out his own phone to record in a vertical syndrome standoff.

“You were walking by,” the deputy said.

“Walking by and doing what?” McKean asked.

“You were making people nervous,” the deputy said.

“By walking by?”

“Yeah, they said you had your hands in your pockets.”


I remember back in the latest Q&A when Rucas shippers were really nervous as to where the show was going regarding Riley and Lucas. But the writers told us that we shouldn’t feel bad, because both Riley and Lucas will go through something they hope it will be one of their most IMPORTANT lessons. 

Obviously, many shippers from the other side jumped saying things like “I bet they will teach that first love doesn’t last” or “People’s feelings change” or to “Let go of their childhood dreams”. 

Firstly, what kind of lesson is that? Their production is better than that. Do you all realy think that Michael Jacobs and his team are going to tell kids to “Give up on your first love, it’s never going to work”, or “You are just a child who obviously doesn’t know what feelings and life are”, or “Why bother fighting for love? Here is your dosis of reality. It’s never going to happen, so stop being inmature and move on”. The fact that many actually believed they were going to teach kids something like this is incredible and shows how bitter some people are. 

Secondly, are you seriously telling me that the same people who went and defended Cory and Topanga that time somebody in the University of Michigan wrote a paper saying “Don’t aspire to be Cory and Topanga, it’ll only bring your heartbreak” will ever teach kids and teens to give up on love because it won’t ever work? Because if somebody really thought so, it’s obvious they don’t really know Michael Jacobs and his team. (x)

Last, Michael Jacobs once said: 

“Yes, chase love. If there is anything, chase love. It’s the most important decision you’ll make in your life, who to go through it with. Hold on tight, I guarantee you, you will be drag in the road, but if you get up you’re fine. The thing about anything worth having is it takes a lot time to get there.” (x)

The fact that he and his whole team firmly believe in chasing love just proves once and for all that whatever lesson they are planning with Riley and Lucas, it ISN’T one involving heartbreak or “moving on” or “letting go”. 

To my fellow Rucas shippers: If one of you even thought about giving up on them, don’t. Michael and his team have been building them since the pilot. They are going to teach everybody something with them. So just like Michael said “Hold on tight" because this will be a bumpy ride, but it will be worth it in the end.
