While watching the gorgeous “Give Me Your Hand” deleted scene - the prelude to Jamie’s dream of intimacy with Claire that begins 02x02 “Not in Scotland Anymore” - I saw a few more things that give a fabulous insight into Jamie’s core desires.
To have a fully functioning hand - and to have Claire heal that hand.
For Claire to care for him, and literally work magic to restore his hand.
For Claire to speak soothing words to him. Touch him gently - the touch of both a healer and a lover.
To have an unscarred back (as we see in the lovemaking sequence).
To give Claire the utmost in intimacy and pleasure - notice how his (healed) hand twines with hers as they make love, and how his view of her focuses on the ecstacy in her face and the “bonnie noises” we know he loves so dearly. It’s just her face and hands - and her smile - not any other part of her body.
And for Claire to not wear Frank’s ring. We don’t see it at all during the dream. And yet we see Jamie’s ring, on Claire’s right hand, several times. When their fingers tangle during the healing scene, and then while they make love. Jamie’s ring is front and center. Integral to their intimacy. A physical reminder of his love for her - not to mention his claim on her.
You tossed a blanket from the bed,
You lay upon your back, and waited;
You dozed, and watched the night revealing
The thousand sordid images
Of which your soul was constitituted;
They flickered against the ceiling.
T. S. Eliot, from section III of “Preludes,” The Complete Poems and Plays, 1909-1950 (Harcourt Brace Jovanovich, 1971)
You can tell a lot about a person by what music they listen to. Put your Ipod, spotify, Itunes, youtube etc. on shuffle and list the first 10 songs and tag 10 people.

OK so. Podcast are super duper important to me and two week ago i thought ‘hey!! I should draw my fave eps from the shows i can listen to and feel safe!! and calm me down!!’ So i dedicated a lot of time to this!! It was fun!! Here they are in order:
WTNV: A Beautiful Dream, Condos, The Debate
TAH:Beyond Belief: Prelude to a fish
Captain Laserbeam: Three Sides to Every Story
Sparks Nevada Marshal on Mars: Space Oil, The Agony of the Feet, Free Kicks
but today I had Make Believe stuck in my head and realized just why Prelude to a Dream is called Prelude to a Dream. “I am a living thing, I am not a human being, but I’m alive”.
That sentiment is what leads to the dream in Make Believe, which is to forget the bounds of society and be who you are. “Dream it, but you got to really mean it. There is no disagreement. The bounds of society are make believe.”
Society says robots can’t be alive because they’re not human, but robots can be alive and have meaning to their lives even if they aren’t human (in the SPG verse). So it’s like… you don’t have to just believe what society says about what you can or can’t be, because society’s boundaries are make believe.
Why do I feel like this basically sums up why SPG is so important in my life. I wish I could be as confident and positive about my different-ness as in that song.
Hey kids, what you know, what you think you’re doing?
THE PAJAMAS I’M SO SORRY but do you get the pun? DO YOU GET IT HAHAHAHAHHAKLSJDLAKDH
I’ve had this sitting in my files for quite a while now… but I stopped because LMMS was freaking out and I kept losing inspiration because I just could not figure out the chords for the “reading love and writing love” part D:
I’m sorry for its short length… but I swear I am almost done with a different arrangement too so I guess that should make up for it ;~;
Well then I hope you guys enjoy this music box arrangement of “Prelude to a Dream” ;____; Thank you for enjoying the music box arrangements and being an awesome fanmily ;____; and I’m sorry I somewhat butchered the chords towards the end… I was trying to build it up but it ended up sounding er… meshed together OTL
