I have watched this scene a thousand times and I remember the very
first time I watched it and my heart still does the same funny thing.
I remember absolutely losing my shit at the shot of the flowers in the air and I was like “OMG BRENNAN’S GONNA CATCH THE BOUQUET. ARE THEY ACTUALLY GOING THERE. ARE THEY GOING TO DO IT???????? OMGGGG.” And they teased us with the slow mo shot, heh. (When I rewatch this scene, I STILL get that anticipation of excitement.)
AND OF COURSE SHE DID.
adore that she looks back at Booth,who just does an adorable smile/half
shrug, trying to seem nonchalant when you know he’s screaming on
the inside, like all of us. HAHAHA.
No, but seriously, the marriage arc
on Bones was just perfect, there was NEVER a single instance when Booth
pestered Brennan about marriage. The ball was in her court all the way
through, and Booth absolutely would have been fine if they had never
married in the end (”I LOVE EVERYDAY.”) A testament to how much
Booth loves her but also a point of great character development for
Booth, who was once fixated on the idea that he HAD to get married.
(Arguably, you could say that his change of heart was because Brennan
was the only one who really mattered, which is equally valid, but I like
to think that Booth learnt something from his previous mistakes).
here, Brennan was not horrified at the thought of catching the flowers;
marriage no longer seems like such an awful concept when it’s in relation to Booth ;)
When the nurse I’m giving report to huffs, puffs, and gives me attitude the whole time because she got a bad assignment (an assignment I have absolutely no control over), and flips her shit on me because ONE thing didn’t get done.
But it’s only when I see a clip of her in the field, leading a raid on the main entrance of the Nut, that something clicks and I realize I’m in the presence of another victor. Lyme, the tribute from District 2, who won her Hunger Games over a generation ago. Effie sent us her tape, among others, to prepare for the Quarter Quell. I’ve probably caught glimpses of her during the Games over the years, but she’s kept a low profile. With my newfound knowledge of Haymitch’s and Finnick’s treatment, all I can think is: What did the Capitol do to her after she won?
>Euclid: Get absolutely pissed that your old undead boss showed up on Alternia.
>You aren’t going to go back to being a boring undead human. That was so boring. You’ve done things like this before but you finally have a life you’re happy with! can’t he just give you a break? Last time he forced you back he reversed time on you and you had to deal with shitty Bro again.
