This one scene in The Brothers Bloom. You know the one. Bloom and Penelope are walking, they pass behind a wall, and all of a sudden they are holding hands. Such a simple act, almost meaningless to so many people these day, but such a lovely and wonderful thing that is taken for granted. Bloom smiles, Penelope smiles. Pure and simple happiness.
And then! He methodically, purposefully, pulls his hand away and puts it in his pocket. Penelope looks confused, slightly hurt.
This scene always resonates so deeply with me. I think because it is the epitome of every relationship I have had in the last few years bunched into a few minutes of film.
The joy and elation of meeting someone you actually LIKE, someone you just fucking love being around, and thank your lucky stars this great person likes you too! Silly smiles, and carefree attitudes. And then he gets distant, and he pulls his metaphorical hand away, deliberately. It wasn’t just dropping your hand for a moment, he was shutting you out and he wants you to know it without being ballsy enough to come out and say it.
So you bring your hands closer to yourself, you take the hint. You don’t fully understand it, but what can you really do? The smiles fade. It’s so quick. It’s so quick you don’t even know if you made the whole thing up in the first place.
It hurts, and all you want is to hold their hand again.
One day I’ll be lucky enough to find someone who won’t let go.
I can not be the only person who thinks about Ross Geller while watching Dinosaurs on a Spaceship, can I?
thoughts on the new TARDIS interior
first thoughts upon seeing pictures online: uhm. but. ok. why though?
primary thoughts upon seeing it during the episode: TOO MUCH CHANGE. NO. I HATE IT. HATE IT. MAKE IT STOP. NO.
secondary thoughts about 5 seconds after primary thoughts: actually. ok. FINE. IT’S RAD. IT’S SUPER RAD AND I THINK I MIGHT ACTUALLY LOVE IT OK.
tertiary thoughts after letting my mind wander: Maybe he just needed to redecorate to help ease the pain of losing the Ponds, keep his mind occupied and hands busy…maybe it reminded him too much of the past and he wanted a new start. Oh god, WHYYY ::sobs::
and lastly: very very reminiscent of classic who JUST IN TIME FOR THE ANNIVERSARY. i see what you did there…..
bottom line: APPROVED.
if i ever met Amy Poehler.
i would probably act how Leslie Knope acted around Joe Biden.
you forgot rose.
just a typical friday night bar hop, and as usual i manage to turn the conversation over to doctor who. my friends know little to nothing of this wonderful magical show…
Friend: Let me sum up for you everything I know about Doctor Who in 10 seconds. Matthew Smith. David Tennant. Amy Pond. Rory? Donna. TARDIS. Martha. And a whale in space.
Me: IT WAS A STAR WHALE.
