“The main thing is the way people look at you and talk to you, because you don’t feel any different. A light never went off, like ‘Ok, I’m a new me.’ So it’s hard when people treat you differently, I mean you don’t feel any differently. It’s alienating. You feel like a zoo animal, or something. I don’t know what it is. It’s something in somebody’s eyes. It’s like not connecting, not making eye contact sometimes. And now I’m surrounded by people all the time, and I can be so lonely when everyone goes. But I have to remind myself it’s just being alone, it’s not lonely.” — Jennifer Lawrence
I was that ambitious when I was very young as well. Gwen is clear on what she wants to do with her life – in terms of her job and her sense of purpose. I think and hope that I am in the same ballpark there. Science-wise, though, she is much better than me.
Probably my favorite part of the ending to portal 2 was this shot right here. For the entirety of Portal and Portal 2 you were always confined within the blank chambers of Aperture Science, even at the beginning the second game, when you walked through the ruins of Aperture Science, taken over by plant life, it was obvious that you were still trapped. The entire time through both games you were also never alone, you were certainly supposed to feel isolated, but you were never by yourself. If it wasn’t the voice of GLaDOS dictating your decisions, it was Wheatley, even at the beginning of the game when you first woke up the voice of the system AI provided continuous information whenever Wheatley wasn’t around to fill the silence.
Then suddenly after the Elevator ride the door opens and you see an open field. For the first time in either games you are completely out of the confines of Aperture Science. Valve gave Chell; a protagonist who does not speak once for the entirety of either game, an amazing ability to make you understand what she is motivated by. The entire time your actions are intended to defy and escape Aperture, and a final shot of her being alone in a field is possibly the best payoff I could have asked for from a sequel because, for the first time, Chell has direct control over her life.
Orphan Black 2x01: a summary
you know what i haven’t seen happen in regards to lgbt characters in tv shows, is not having one lgbt character automatically fall in love with another lgbt character
idk if that makes sense, but i kinda wanna see one gay/lesbian/bi/etc. character tell another gay/lesbian/bi/etc. character their feelings for them, and then have that person be like “oh hey, that’s cool and all but i just think of u as a friend”
not because they aren’t gay or bi or something
just because, they just aren’t interested in that other person
