There’s something missing between these two scenes even though they happen only moments (and one page) apart. There’s a line missing (Bellamy: “Get some sleep.”) We’re also missing stage directions (i.e. the actor’s movements between these two scenes) and on the show, Bellamy turns, picks up his jacket and then looks at Clarke for a bit longer before finally walking out. Clarke’s eyes follow him (her eyes are still wet with tears) before she wipes them away and then rips the list out of the book and places it in the desk. She then stands up, grabs her own jacket and walks down the hall toward medbay.
We have two separate script pieces only moments apart that contain absolutely none of these moments. There is a reason for that and it’s because whatever is contained in that small bit of script that’s missing? It means something for Bellarke.
P.S. Eliza “That Blarke Shit…obviously isn’t happening Taylor” ad-libbed the hand nuzzle. Think about that.
History cannot be changed or forgotten. Especially when witnesses of those crimes are still alive. These people who were taken to Siberia, who were scattered around the territories of now former Soviet Union, who lived through unimaginable physical and emotional torture, they deserve to be remembered, they deserve justice and our active condemnation of the crimes committed against them.

So the 20th anniversary of the publication of Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone is coming up and I thought it might be fun to do a group reread!
This is for anyone to get involved in, no matter your house, so hopefully we can all go back and relive the magic together
I’m aware that people have different commitments and a lot of people still have exams so, by popular consensus, we’re going to be taking it slow so there’s no pressure to read particularly fast. We’re going to be reading one chapter a day on weekdays, and two chapters a day on weekends which hopefully is a pace everyone will be able to keep up with
This means the reread will last just under two weeks, so we will be starting on the 14th of June, meaning we’ll finish on June 26th, the actual 20th anniversary
It’s up to you how much you want to get involved and how to document your own rereading journey, but I’ll be posting my own thoughts on each chapter on this blog; things I’d forgotten, things I never picked up on before, favourite quotes and moments, how my thoughts on characters have changed, that kind of stuff
I’ll also be posing a discussion question based on the chapter so feel to chip in your own thoughts on that!
If you want to reply to me or make your own posts, artwork, questions, anything like that then use the hashtag #hogwartsreread so we can all join in each others discussions and talk to each other about our rereading experience!
Reblog if you’re interested so we can get as many people involved as possible! I’ll be posting reminders as we get closer to the day but I’m so excited and hopefully you guys are looking forward to it too!
