so come on home
just come on home
For me this was that one moment of relief in the story. Ellie is clearly suffering from some form of post-traumatic stress after her near-death encounter with David. Joel is trying (and failing) to re-connect with her. It’s always go go go go, all the happiness has been sucked out of the world. At previous times Ellie would try and bring that good back and Joel simply dismisses or brushes it off with a “stay focused.” Everyone you meet is on edge, pissed off, tired, or out to kill you. So in this one moment. This one scene. You could just take a breath and appreciate the good that IS out there. And it comes at such an emotional peak. This is my favorite moment in the game easily. And what a game it is.
#the last of us #not over it never over it #an entire world carved out of trauma #this is all just a game about trauma that’s all it’s ever been about #what it does what it looks like how it carries over how it carries the day #what you can do with it what you can do against it what you’ll do because of it #trauma as identity
The Big Bang Theory shows geek culture the same way that 50 Shades of Grey shows BDSM culture.
OH MY GOD YOU PUT IT INTO WORDS. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU.

"Margulies played Fantasy Alicia perfectly. She captured Will’s projection and his desire to see her vulnerable. Eyes filled with unshed tears… The reality of Alicia (in a much more sensible, dark suit) is that she has steel in her spine. Will thought he could anticipate her response (the titular “Decision Tree”), but she outmaneuvered and not only anticipated his questions but implicated David Lee and L/G while she was at it." (x)
