ok yeah I know, I’m supposed to be going to bed, but I’ve been ruminating on Fitz’s behavior during this episode & how it could pertain to what they’ll do to have him eventually remember Jemma.
first, he seems far more interested in the information that May brings him about a random infraction at some school than someone at his high level in Hydra should be. then, he’s oddly interested in Skye’s application to co-habit with Ward - as if, perhaps, he senses he’s missing that feeling himself. finally, AIDA refuses to let him see pictures of the surveillance of the infraction (Jemma), and he gets unnaturally upset about it. (as if his mind has been warped to believe that he’s upset because he wants to protect AIDA, but deep inside himself he knows he’s missing something else wildly important.)
also, a lot of us were laughing at the irony that Fitz finally gets to be The Doctor - but not in the way that he would ever want (or expect). and the show has a history of Doctor Who references.
rewatching the livestream from yesterday and i’m still in awe at how amazing this pack looks. every breed looks so distinct and the traits and personalities and little details truly set them all apart. the fact that we’re also getting a full beautiful world with new places to explore and things to do makes it that much more amazing. i’m willing to go on a limb and say that this might be one of the best expansion packs…. ever? i’ve never been this happy with a pack that isn’t even out yet and it makes me that much more excited.
look i will give Spider Man Homecoming so much money if they give Vulture this Tony Stark-related motivation and someone in the movie tells the actual villain who is hurting innocent people to take his motive and shove it up his ass.
As Obi-Wan watched Ahsoka run off with Shmi into the market crowd, he could hear hear his master’s words echoing in his mind.
“You have to get Satine and Anakin to safety!”
With his stomach twisting itself into anxious knots, he saw Ahsoka and Shmi almost pass through the crowd before someone spotted her distinctive blue and white montrals and gave a shout that brought back Gardulla’s thugs.
No! he wanted to shout, but the gangsters’ flashy and brutal warning to the populace had turned the residents of Mos Espa against them.
Master Ahsoka’s question hung sharp and clear in his mind. “Do you understand, Obi-Wan?”
No. I don’t. I don’t want you to go. I don’t want to do this by myself. I’m not ready, Master! I’m… I’m…
Obi-Wan closed his eyes, ashamed to admit the truth as Ahsoka and Shmi disappeared around a corner with the thugs in pursuit. No one had seen him and Satine yet, tucked up against a building across the way, but that could change at any moment.
I’m scared, Master. I don’t… I don’t think I can do this all by myself!
Obi-Wan did not expect any kind of answer and yet he felt something warm and strong at his back. A pair of unseen hands came to rest on his shoulders, along with a whispered promise. You can do this, Obi-Wan. Your master believes in you. Satine believes in you.
Anakin believes in you.
You are ready, Obi-Wan.
“Obi-Wan?” Satine murmured, reaching out hesitantly to touch his shoulder, unsure if she should interrupt what was clearly some kind of communing with the Force. Anakin was starting to fuss against her and the longer they stayed in one place, the worse their chances grew.
Startled out of his worried thoughts, Obi-Wan looked back at Satine and Anakin, at her nervous expression and Anakin’s round blue eyes. They were waiting for him to act, waiting for him to lead them to safety. They were counting on him to be the Jedi he claimed to be, to protect the innocent and to serve the greater good. To be the Jedi Ahsoka believed he could be.
One of my favorite technical colleges that I’ve looked at is the location of the National Technical Institute for the Deaf and and honestly that’s still such a cool concept to me…I could actually use my ASL knowledge for once, and maybe actually learn it properly too. I’d actually have the incentive to practice and learn new signs if it meant that I could hang out with HOH/deaf/Deaf nerds.
