the staff of ACN reacting to Will and Mac’s engagement
#this scene/montage/whatever is everything to me #because Will’s arc (or more indirectly Mac’s arc) is about learning to let go of needing audience validation #and just be happy #to stop pandering and be himself #and Mac encouraging that and pushing him and supporting him #but also building this family around the two of them #with her and Will as the parents #(I mean look at them in rundowns they’re the two heads of the table) #(Maggie is actually what their child would be) #(They parent shit out of all their newsbabies) #so at the end of the finale #Will doesn’t want audience validation #he wants validation from his family #(the exact fucking opposite of who he was in the pilot) #(this is how you character development) #and the News Night family is so fucking ridiculously happy for them #from the kids to Charlie to Will’s horde of little sisters and Mac’s band of little brothers #anyway #it’s not ‘you better you better you bet’ #it’s ‘we’re here for you always’
I have watched almost every single River Song episode of Doctor Who in the past two days but I refuse to watch the end of Forest of the Dead. I won’t do it again and you can’t make me.
Nothing says confidence like doing sudoku with a pen.
"Voldemort tried to kill you when you were a child because of a prophecy made shortly before your birth. He knew the prophecy had been made, though he did not know its full contents. He set out to kill you when you were still a baby, believing he was fulfilling the terms of the prophecy. He discovered, to his cost, that he was mistaken, when the curse intended to kill you backfired. And so, since his return to his body, and particularly since your extraordinary escape from him last year, he has been determined to hear that prophecy in its entirety. This is the weapon he has been seeking so assiduously since his return: the knowledge of how to destroy you"
