1. Yes, I love me some Liz. =)
2. We don’t know why Lily doesn’t remember.
I did! Once upon a time, eons and eons ago. I basically read mostly Usagi/Mamoru AUs, though I liked the occasional other canon fic too. I have only one fic I actually published in that fandom, but it’s not like Commentarius and it will never be unearthed from its ancient ffnet grave. ;)
Ha, nope! I just thought it was the sort of thing James and Sirius would do, buy matching watches. So they have them. =)
I’d heard that theory before, but never gave it much credence because it just seemed a very strange turn to take in a comedy. But it’s clear that the writers at least want us to think it’s heading that way. I’m not entirely ruling out their blatant trolling because lord knows they like to be the most clever people in the room and so basically revealing it like that with three more episodes to go seems a bit strange, but I also know Ted and Mom weren’t sitting there tearing up at a table for shits and giggles. So I don’t know. I’d be super disappointed if that were how it ended. The irritating trend that only equates poignancy with tragedy is just really tragic in itself. But we’ll see, we’ll see.
I actually have never read PD fan fiction! Does anyone have any recs for anon?
What’re you thanking them for? They’re not the bums banging this shit out.
The moment when someone in a couple first says “I love you” is stereotypically built up to be this very big, very serious and defining thing in many romances (fictional, and otherwise). It’s a declaration of feelings above and beyond what might already be there or said. It takes the relationship to a higher, more serious level. So James saying it to Lily is sort of his—rather angry—declaration that this isn’t and has never been casual for him. He loved her, which instantly removes any way for Lily to slowly ease her way into the relationship as she’s been doing. So that’s why she sort of freaks out. And that’s why it’s sort of a big thing. Does that explain it better at all?
leo doesn’t want the damn pizza he’s here for the oscar
Spending Oscar commercial breaks repeatedly checking weather.com in a sad attempt to calculate what the odds are of a projected 1-3 inches of snow falling between 3-8 am have of shutting down the subway and thus giving me a snow day.
The prospect is looking grim. Bastards.
