Get it Starr Manning… I mean Kiki
When the news broke today that 1990s series Sailor Moon is getting a new installment due out next year, I happened to remember that in 2001, Starr was seen playing with a set of SM dolls in the aftermath of the hell no wedding.
Of course, Starr being Starr, “playing” means dressing the dolls in bandages and eye-patches and having them “vote” on whether or not Blair should stay in jail forever.

[Notes: While the picture (which ran in SOW in December 2011) was apparently taken during the shooting of the T&B confront Neela in Angel Square scenes, I guess RH and KDP decided to break the fourth wall for this shot. As for the tagline “a match made in…somewhere,” Todd said that to Blair in 2001 when he was trying to convince her to marry him for the third time.]
Every time Starr watched her parents together during Roger Howarth’s latest return, I always thought that underneath her wise, knowing smiles and glances she was secretly jumping around and screaming at the top of her lungs “HEY HEY EVERYONE LOOK! MY MOM AND DAD ARE GETTING BACK TOGETHER!!”

Blair takes charge.
“If you’ve ever trusted me, you need to trust me now!”
LOOK AT HIM COVER HER!!!!!!!!!!! He literally CRADLES that woman to cover her ENTIRE BODY!!!!!! He would take a BULLET FOR HER, HE LOVES HER THAT MUCH!!! She is his WIFE and the mother of his children! I love that he was just hanging out ready for her to come by and tell her what’s going on, SHE was the first person he went to see! I love how his first instincts are not to LIE to her anymore, or give her some bullshit of how he needs to leave town to protect them (THANK YOU PP FOR CLEANING UP RON’S BULLSHIT, PUTTING IT IN A HEFTY BAG AND SENDING IT RIGHT BACK TO HIS ASS, LABELED: UNWANTED).
I LOVE that for the first time since virtually 199fucking5, he’s being HONEST WITH HER!!!!! He is letting her IN as a PARTNER, cause that’s what you do as husband and wife, you let the other person IN and it’s all Blair’s ever wanted, for him to PROVE that he would and that he TRUSTED HER. That’s something I KNOW has haunted her since the original baby lie and then Patrick, Todd not being able to trust her. And then his return from Ireland and kidnapping Starr. Gosh, that cycle started and every regime SINCE then felt that THAT was the way to go with them, lies and betrayal.
WTF?! Twenty damn years with a popular couple and every regime post Ireland felt we needed to be miserable. Much like Todd, I eventually stopped wearing socks too, cause I was so damn depressed FOR them. I’m so glad that someone is FINALLY getting it right, FINALLY. No fears of SEX and then BOOM the other shoe drops from a lie Todd told her. No fears of the usual dread that comes from them giving themselves to each other. For the first time in nearly 20 years, Todd and Blair and their FANS are being appreciated. We’re not getting a “bait N switch” that ABC was so known for, we’re not getting a bunch of questions on how Todd and Blair feel about one another, we’re not getting an incompetent as FUCK headwriter teasing in a magazine that one or the other COULD feel the same way, but we’re not sure. CACKLE CACKLE! (that’s a flat out slam against Ron, I have no damn shame)
I’m so GLAD that PP saved Todd from utter destruction on GH. I honestly wasn’t sure how I was going to feel about him again, then he walked into Shelter looking at Blair like he wanted to devour her whole and I was pretty damn gone. I don’t want to discuss how easy I am, as it’s not proper, but I can be pretty damn easy!
These are people who have a PULSE ON THE FANS. They LISTEN and take fan reactions and fan questions and comments into ACCOUNT. T&B fans have been literally BEGGING for the times of GBW because it was the last time Todd and Blair were properly written for as a couple who MATTERED. So GRATEFUL there are people in charge who give a damn! Much like Blair, I’d forgotten what it felt like to not be lied to, hell, I might lose my clothes too. LOL
That’s what I’m talking about! (Coming soon, TnBers!)
I I I I I I WANT TO SAY SO MUCH, BUT AT THE MOMENT, I AM A FUCKING MESS!!!!!!!!
REBLOGGING, CAUSE I CAN!
AND, cause I need to add your epicness, Witchy, cause babe, your words are POETRY!!!!!
But guys, he’s so fucking serious. No goofing. No looking like sex with her makes him uncomfortable or is “icky”. No closing his eyes even in the after glow. It’s like…..part of him can’t believe she’s there but a bigger part of him has always known that this would be and even knowing it, he doesn’t take it for granted. He wants to suck up every moment and just take her all in. I love it. He’s so much more intense than before with none of the Rodd or Fraud bullshit, either.
This is one of the many reasons why I love them. They are self-aware and they are aware of the other’s flaws. They know that they’re not good people. But they still love each other and want each other despite not being good or good enough.
Also, working with older clips, and YT clips at that, is hell.
Winners of the most pathetic contest. Llanview’s losers. Like Asa called them, “soulmates from hell.” They wanted to torch the whole town down for hating them, and I found that beautiful in its own way.
GUH! Reblogging for *reasons*!!!!!!!!!
Jack: Stop talking about Victor, I love him. And I know you don’t want me to say that, but it’s true, I love him. And now he’s gone, and nothing I do or say will bring him back, so can you just leave me alone?
