“The Nutcracker” (working title)
Premieres : December 10
Official logline: “Rising star, Lilly James lives and breathes ballet. Her sister, Beth, is not only her biggest fan but often forgoes her own needs to make sure Lilly has every opportunity possible. Lilly’s devotion pays off when she is accepted into the New York City Ballet. Her biggest dream comes true when she lands the lead role of Clara in The Nutcracker and will make her debut on Christmas Eve. As she prepares for her big night, she receives the tragic news that her sister has died. She is removed from the show by none other than Mark, her boyfriend and dance partner. Betrayed and heartbroken, she vows never to dance again. Years later, Lilly’s niece receives the same Christmas wish, the role of Clara in the prestigious Philadelphia Nutcracker Ballet, only to find that the Ballet Director is Mark, who betrayed Lilly years ago. Will Lilly see the truth about her past, and allow herself a second chance to dance and another chance to find love?”

Second Chances Ch 13 Preview

Once again, this chapter will take a while to get down, so here’s a brief preview:

“This is ridiculous,” Lucas said out of the corner of his mouth. “I can’t believe we’re being held captive by my fourteen year old daughter.”

Riley laughed at him. “Remember when I had you tie up Maya? At least we can walk around.”

The two sat again in silence. “Why is this so hard,” Lucas asked. “We used to be able to talk all the time.”

“Things change,” Riley said sadly. “We were boyfriend and girlfriend and then we weren’t. You moved back to Texas, met someone else, got married, had a beautiful little girl. Life moved on. I heard what you said about missing talking to me, and I miss it, too.”

“So you think our past and the time apart has changed us so much that we can’t do this any more?”

“I don’t know. Maybe we should just forget our past and start over.” Riley turned to face him, holding out her hand. “Hi, I’m Riley.”

Lucas took her hand. “Lucas.”

“So tell me a little bit about yourself, Lucas.”

“Well, I live just outside of Austin, Texas with my daughter, Lilianna Elizabeth.” He gestured over at his daughter.

“That’s a beautiful name,” Riley said.

“It was her mother’s name,” Lucas said sadly. Riley reached over and took hold of his hand.

“I’m sorry, Lucas,” Riley said. “I didn’t mean…”

BONES Season 11 Recap: Part 7 of ?

Perhaps I’m in the minority here. But since the beginning (well in the last couple years), I have found Jessica Warren to be a very welcome addition to the Jeffersonian team. It really took no time at all for her to win me over. Which is unusual, since I am normally not as quick to accept newcomers in this show. First of all, the lab definitely benefits from adding another female intern. I know that Hodgins is a bit outnumbered in terms of full-time “squints,” but Daisy has really always been the sole female squintern on the team. Enter Jessica. There is definitely a contrast between herself and Daisy, which I of course appreciate. Though I would expect nothing less from the writers. Each intern is unique. And each one adds something wonderfully different to the story. Jessica brings an almost-laid back “vibe” to her cases. She is still brilliant and eager to learn. But like Booth, she goes off the gut- something that obviously drives Brennan to the brink of insanity at times. After just a few short episodes, we really got to know her. She is a product of an educational cooperative, and she takes the “creative” route when it comes to science. She’s a breath of fresh air, in my opinion. I know others may disagree. I do know one person who definitely will not disagree. And that is James Aubrey. Much of Jessica’s story this season centered around an abbreviated will-they/won’t-they plot line between the FBI agent and the anthropologist. But more on that to come!

It just hit me again on how the class is treating Nagito, now.  Like.  Interacting and I just imagine at this point, after everything they’ve been through (together and not) and all, just… accepting their quirks better and just… yeah.

And it just… just thinking that with the way they’re acting?  All friends?  That Nagito just… finally won’t have to feel - nor be - so alone.  Just…

It’s just a really big deal and made me tear up :<

(I want some Class 77 + Hajime shenanigans in like an OVA or something with all of them on that boat or something after what just happened.  And showing more of their interaction now that they’re… not in some sick “game” or whatever… and now having been through their own Neo World and Hajime’s things… and more on that :<  Just.  Yeah.  /doesn’t know why she’s sharing this, but yeah.)

i think everyone needs a marcus.
there was a reason that we were “’rails before pails”, so to speak.

even though we’re just friends now,
he’s just as damn good of a friend now as he was years ago.

i’m glad i never run out of second chances.

The Ginny/Amelia ship was just cranked up to 10.

A whole episode largely dedicated to their back story and how they met.

Amelia being depressed and sad about her husband leaving her and seeing a news story about Ginny and being inspired.

She said she came to Texas because Ginny needed her but it’s she who needed Ginny. (and her not being forthcoming about that to Ginny because she didn’t want to appear vulnerable to her because she needs to always be confident and powerful in Ginny’s eyes so Ginny never second guesses taking a chance on Amelia or worse loses trust in her😢)

The fact that the way it happened -her sitting in a meeting, hating her life, looking up, seeing Ginny, seeing her way out in Ginny, giving up EVERYTHING in an instant - makes them seem fated to be in each other’s lives.

Granted, she definitely does still see Ginny as a walking dollar sign but now we kinda get where that desperation comes from. She’s on her own, she quit her agency. Aside from that, it’s just her job. Can’t be mad at it. It may take a while before we see their friendship develop.

tl;dr? That storytelling was gay as hell. I’m excited. I want these two to be close and complicated. I know they’re not going to be romantic. I don’t need that to appreciate it.

Everyone, including Frisk and Chara, deserve a second chance, and they deserve to be cared about, and loved. I'm always willing to give that chance .3.

“* (Dreamer Chara opened the transmission.) * And I must believe in this Chara, too! For they can be a good person! * (Don’t Give Up plays)”

*What kind people you are!

*We’ll have to wait and see if your kindness is warranted…

Okay so I had to write this. Read at your own risk, this is not a fun fic.

Seriously its TPK shit and nightmares in the 2nd person perspective

You died. Rationally you know this. You fell and there was a flash of golden light and suddenly you were breathing again. Remember? It was the amulet Pike gave you. Yet another second chance you’re not sure you deserve. But it was given to you, so you try to get up, try to return to the battle. You try to stand to face your demons, in every sense of the word.

You know what?  I’m looking forward to seeing the EQ in Storybrooke.  There’s something so completely over-the-top and campy about her, but, hey, that’s half the fun of OUAT most of the time.  I do love the show’s theme of redemption and second chances.  I love that Killian and Regina have rejoined team!hero and are growing and changing and becoming better people, but at the same time, there’s something refreshing about having a villain who’s just plain villainous—someone you can have fun rooting against.  (That, for me, was the appeal of season 3 Zelena—although her “Oh poor me!  My sister got everything while I got nothing!  It’s not fair!  I’m going to stamp my feet and throw a toddler-worthy temper tantrum” thing got old pretty quickly.)

This whole “split personality” thing really was a clever way for the writers to allow Regina to continue on her redemption path, while still bringing in the Evil Queen—someone I get the impression both A&E and Lana have fun with.

On a more substantive point, though I like the idea that Regina’s inner turmoil over reconciling the villain she used to be with the hero she’s becoming more and more everyday—and dealing with her tendency toward self-pity and self-sabotage as well as blaming people (often the WRONG people) for the bad things that happen in her life—gets to be manifested in a very physical way via this Jekyll and Hyde storyline.

So, yeah.  In addition to looking forward to more CS growth, the savior mythology storyline, how the Untold Stories fit in with what’s going on, Aladdin/Jasmine/Jafar, Jekyll and Hyde (and whatever the writers have in store for us where that story’s concerned), Robin Hood being back in whatever capacity he comes back and Regina’s further character development, I’m genuinely looking forward to the Evil Queen and all the delightful havoc she’ll be playing in Storybrooke.

Season 6 has kicked off with a promising start!
