Nixiel Veres: I’ll have you know that my trust issues and my daddy issues are two completely different topics of conversation.
also re: my apush research paper, i was talking to my teacher after the first round of proposals were turned in (only one student per year can write about each document) bc pretty much everyone else already had them in (and i won't until tomorrow) and so she was telling me to avoid popular topics when choosing which documents to write about and i was like "oh i've narrowed mine down to letters written by james madison during the war of 1812 but i'm still trying to figure out which of his correspondents to choose from" and i swear she just took a moment to buffer bc i Know she thought she had figured me out in that i was just another unmotivated student who breezes through classes by turning in all the work at the last possible minute and gets As anyways (which i am, sure, but i'm trying to change that) and she was just like "Ok. you don't have any competition for that time period, just try to figure out a second one and avoid topics like women's rights and education"
i want these panels to be from a good comic so so bad but they are not
[id: two panels from x-men fairytales #3. In the first panel is a silhouette of a pair of scissors in scott’s hands, pointing toward jean’s neck. jean is saying: “Please, the spell’s already starting to take hold. I can’t do it myself..if you love me...”
the second panel shows jean and scott facing each other. jean has wrapped her hands around scott’s, holding the scissors with him./end id]
shhhh.... your thoughts are keeping her awake!

From Cory continuation of this X
Why does she want that personal apology so badly...(it’s about power and control for sure and she’s been wronged..but to go three weeks about it...I mean?). Remember Reese says Bradley thinks she’s in control but she’s really not...X This scene is a prime example of it. I find it so interesting it all changes the moment he comes down to her room, when it seemed pretty definite that she wouldn’t come up for the dinner... but a few minutes later after he left. She did. I just have some thoughts on it because if anyone else were her boss...unfortunately Bradley would be fired(let’s be real guys), and the whole dinner...speech thing beforehand, would not have been an option...
Anyway more long ramblings below
It’s clear she wants an apology from Cory and she doesn’t exactly get it... She’s resentful she has to go through it with her agents and resentful that honestly Alex is getting preferential treatment.
But from this scene(IMHO) I get the sense she wants him to reach out to her...especially her reaction to the phone call from UBA below...which I talk about more below:
She is hurt, she felt let down and betrayed and she has every right to be....but again remember three weeks has passed...and that’s a long time. Long time to hold a grudge, risk your job(she has every right to). But this hurt goes a lot deeper(definitely centring around her trust and abandonment issues tbh X and here X).
IMHO They and them is Cory guys tbh.
..yeah she’s probably angry at Mia and Eric too(cause she says she won’t go back till he’s gone). But she seems ok with Mia at the dinner and eventually hugs Eric(probably for the show...honestly I don’t like Eric after the latest episode), but nah this pain is directed at Cory IMHO
Tagging you again @chiara-mastroianni <3 because your new gifset captures it perfectly.
Then the bit that had me convinced that this isn’t about the network and her contract...but the betrayal by Cory... it’s the fact she says this isn’t about Alex...that made me go ooof... She’s every right to be annoyed by Alex tbh. But this is definitely about something else. She gets extremely hurt, when she tries to convince herself and them what it’s really about
The way Reese acts this is brilliant...she struggles to say it out loud, and the hurt that comes along with it when she does (I’m still maintaining they and them is Cory)
THEN HER PHONE rings...it’s the “network” and her reactions says it all tbh. I talk about it here or have screencaps of it here X But from her just looking at the phone, she’s all in pain when it’s ringing and want looks like she wants to answer it. But won’t do it in front of Jeff
It’s in the above screencaps, but got to quickly cut to how smug she looks about to answer it...(only answering it when no one else is around...hmmm).
Anyway back to negotiations, where Bradley seems bad ass initially telling Jeff where to go(loved it cause he deserves it). But while Bradley has some valid points here....she loses track. Her agents know they don’t have much ground to hold on...not really...she knows it too in a way, but doesn’t want to admit it..(Is “they” in this scene, still Cory..maybe...)
When they don’t respond the way she expects them to, she leaves and the above phone call in the hall happens, where she reluctantly agrees to go to the meal at Cory’s..But when the meal occurs, oh boy she takes her sweet time going to it (so on purpose). To the extent that Cory has to go down to her room to convince her to come down(he has no choice).
But I think there’s part of her that wanted him to reach out and to test him in way. I mean look at her reaction at the door knock, she was hoping for it maybe...but not expecting it either
Then Bradley has another rightful but childish reaction to Cory(still very angry and hurt at him). But he then he gives a fair accurate speech to her on how she’s only fucking herself(and she is :(), and he is really trying to help her.
But the reaction she gives is captured in awesome gifset by @billy-crudup asking where is her apology? Is just prime example, she wants to maintain control and it’s easier for her to feel angry, rather than focus on anything else. But her reaction after he leaves...OH MY HEART (she looks like a child all hurt too IMHO). She didn’t get her apology....and she’s confused as to why (why does she want it so badly from him)
But five minutes later who arrives at Cory’s door dressed and ready to go
I do find this funny the way she walks into his penthouse, like she owns the place. Then we have the awkward dinner from hell, filled with awkward and angry glances directed at Cory, and finally the screaming match at Alex. But eventually she returns to work....whether motivated to take down Alex or by Cory’s speech who knows...
I legit don’t know what my conclusion is but the whole negotiations with her agents really shows a lot going on with Bradley. While it seems she wants to do battle with Alex now...she’s holding onto that anger that pain, that anger and pain is probably transferred over from Cory to Alex by the end of the episode. Even though she says it’s not about Alex and I really don’t think it is, the fact she emphasises that and is pain when she does...reveals a lot more than she even really knows. I think it’s more than Cory. But Cory set off these motions and Alex’s return became a part of that, but there’s some other stuff...and she’s so desperate to have control. Because like I discussed before in other essays it’s being continuously let down throughout her life and she thinks for once Cory is different. But despite all of this....she doesn’t leave her job, she’s still there. She still goes to his penthouse for the dinner..she still listens to him in a way...but going forward I am so curious how we are going to see this with her growth and emotions...if it’s really going to be explored...what exactly this rage and hurt is really about
SPOILER totally her family screwing her and being lost and confused about her identity...also other major SPOILER..but will add that in later too
the way i’m weeping at every dan/trixie scenes 😭😭😭

I know I come onto this dash every couple of months to talk about Dany when she’s sick. But...the girl really and truly does not believe that she can get sick. When she tosses her head and haughtily tells her advisers, “Have you ever seen a dragon with the flux?” she means that shit. She never got sick as a kid, never saw Viserys get sick, or, at least, she cannot remember?? Which is why she was also so scared out on the Dothraki Sea because that was the first time she has been/can remember being SICK (from the poisonous berries!!!). It’s the same in modern verses! So when Dany gets sick, she’s just...confused...and you have to tell her to stay in bed to rest!! Because she’s going to try and get up to hold court or work on something, and SHE JUST NEEDS TO STAY PUT!
