Regal Believer Appreciation Week
Favorite mother/son moment:
I love how Lana chose to pull her feet off the floor here. Both of them. It’s a very “I’m vulnerable with you” maneuver in body language.
She can’t get away without being hurt. Should he shove her away in anger she will hit the floor before she can get her feet to catch herself. It’s supplication.
For Regina this is a major emotional moment. She’s not powerful witch here; she’s not badass mayor. She’s the mother of every hospital-bedridden child ever, curling up to be as close to her son as possible.
This is an even more emotionally vulnerable position than when she curled up in the chair next to him when he was in the fire room, back in season 2.
could we all just stop and stare at her smile at the 4th pic? just pure happiness from seeing her baby safe by her side… i want to just stare at it whole day…
I don’t know how you are so familiar to me - or why it feels less like I am getting to know you and more as though I am remembering who you are. How every smile, every whisper brings me closer to the impossible conclusion that I have known you before, I have loved you before - in another time, a different place - some other existence.
You know, this is a tough question because I love these two scenes for many different reasons.
I loved this scene:
This scene shows an understanding, a connection and a tenderness that is clearly remarkable. I absolutely love how he caresses her face with such gentleness and kisses her until she smiles sweetly. It’s clear from this scene that he’s already growing crazy about her and he’s falling in love with her. He wants her to smile and to be happy. He sees that she’s upset and you know the first thing that comes to mind for him? Almost like a second nature? Is to comfort her and make her feel loved and to have someone who cares about her.
He is gentle and the way he kisses her shows that he already values her like a sacred object that he holds dear to his heart.
With her too, you see something unique. She doesn’t hold back, she doesn’t go into the evil queen mode like she does with everyone else. She’s open with and honest about her feelings when she’s with him. It’s clear, that she too is falling in love with him. Her little nose bump thing against his too, a sign of great affection and love is too endearing and is always so cute. She clearly likes his attention on her, and I just love how she isn’t afraid, in fact she embraces his love for her.
This scene makes me smile like an idiot… well this couple makes me smile like an idiot:
You see… There is something about this scene that really makes me proud. She is scared, scared that if she tells him why they are drawn to each other the way they are. They are soulmates. She is scared to tell him this, she is scared she’ll lose him forever and he’ll end up hating her. You know Robin. He’s already fallen down and is captivated by not only her heart and soul, but her. ALL of HER.
They look into each other’s eyes and the connection and chemistry is bouncing off the walls. He asks her what’s wrong and you know what they do? They comfort each other. They are there, in that moment, captivated by one another and they are each other’s world.
She doesn’t hesitate. She tells him instantly they are soulmates because of his tattoo; they are destined to be together. Their love will overcome practically anything.
When they exchange what fears they have, he instantly understands why she ran. “Is that why you were afraid to open yourself up again?” - That right there is their connection, why it’s so strong. He GETS her. ALL of her. He doesn’t even really need more evidence of her. He understands her completely.
The moment when they look into each other’s eyes lovingly? That’s when I knew. They are meant to be, soulmates in every way.
They adore each other.
I agree with Lana even more now, Marian may have to find another man. He’s clearly in love with his soulmate.
First time I voted for a singer on AGT —— moved me to tears
I saw this live and in person. It was AMAZING. One of those singers whose voice resonates in your entire being as she hits those notes.
And she is adorable in person too! After they cut to commercial she used her dress train as a cape and kind of flew off into the wings. I am just such a big fan of hers.
