It’s Claire’s birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Claire is a super awesome person and I am so glad we got to go see Brandon together and freak out together and meet him! She’s funny and she’s nice and just look at how beautiful she is! I can’t wait to see more shows with her!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Happy birthday!!! Hope it’s as amazing as you!
The way she goes and just holds him in this scene…
She doesn’t say anything, nor does she need to. That’s how expressive Caitriona Balfe is, it’s just all there, written beautifully on her face.
She can’t bear the thought that he had to consider such a proposition and the consequences he had to endure for refusing. She doesn’t expect anything from him, she just wants to hold and heal him, support and comfort him, for him to know she’s there completely. Always. Slowly bringing him back from his memories, back to her. Then as he slowly wraps his arms around her, she melts into him…
It mirrors their time at the Abbey so much. She reaches for him over and over and over again, wanting to touch him, heal him, comfort him - each time he pulled away and each time he does, you see on her face how another piece of her heart breaks. She finally does hold him, expecting nothing in return, just holds him fiercely, slowly bringing him back from his memories, back to her. Always. Then as he slowly wraps his arm around her, she melts into him…
Kim Rhodes will be reprising her role as Sheriff Jody Mills in the twelfth episode of the season, titled, “Don’t You Forget About Me.” As Supernatural showrunner Jeremy Carver put it, “Sheriff Mills, who’s taken in Claire and Alex, has a case fall a bit too close to home.”
first in this week’s line up of [SLURP] music, a theme for Claire!
with SLARPG’s new protagonists, i wanted to create themes that would speak to each of the characters’ personalities. @ponett described Claire as someone who means well, but whose know-it-all tendencies can make her seem intimidating, bossy, and even reckless. nonetheless, she believes she’s doing the right thing and really wants to prove she’s a good friend.
with this track, i hoped to capture Claire’s awkwardness and know-it-all-itude while still keeping an optimistic vibe to the song. the odd rhythm (7/4 time!) keeps things just a beat shy of symmetrical to represent Claire’s tendency for good intentions falling through. meanwhile, her brainy qualities come through as a super patternistic arrangement: each instrument plays very strict and mathy-sounding rhythms and melodies in each section.
i geeked out a lot while making new tracks, which made me think of how something magic happens when you get to nerd all over your passion—and since Claire’s nerd passion is witchcraft, it seemed fitting to let some of that rigid mathiness loosen up and bring in some mystical vibes with smooth sax action (saxion???), to end on a note that ultimately says “this is what i love.”
also, lots of cowbell LOL
very very excited for the next theme coming up—i’ll be posting it in a couple days. stay tuned!
