Please be warned that there are almost 200 caps beneath the cut. Seeing that I managed to reduce it from over 3000, however, that is quite an achievement.

(Best episodes of anything ever. Oh wait, didn't I say the same thing last week?)

Eun Soo is freaked out of her mind at the thought Choi Young may be killed and Deok Heung offers her a bargain. I love how contemptuous she is when he says in return for saving CY's life, he wants her to marry her. She is all 'is that all?' Ovaries of steel, that is my Eun Soo. Eun Soo who is willing to marry her poisoner, to save the man she loves. I also love how these scenes are intercut with CY sensing something is wrong yet not being sure what.























He finds out the powder and realizes the plot. And being CY, you can see him start thinking why on earth they let him off...





Those two are pure awesome. I'd watch a whole drama about them.





CY trying to figure out the plot with the help of his awesome aunt. This is here largely because he is so hot as to be unbearable to my hormones.














Gongmin pwning the courtiers. Every day, GM grows into the amazing man he is destined to be. And he is helped immensely by his utter mutual empathy (because it goes way beyond simple understanding) with Nogook.











The bromance in this drama is pretty amazing because it's all sorts of complicated and started off on such a rocky ground...














Nogook gets the news that Eun Soo agreed to marry Deok Heung and is all 'whaaaaa?!' I love how nobody can believe ES would do this voluntarily. They are such a close-knit group.








CY finds out about the engagement from his aunt and storms off. He is certainly Mr. Frontal Attack.











She's been dressed up like some sort of fancy doll to go meet Mr. Scumbag but all she can see is CY everywhere. And it breaks my heart that she keeps seeing him smiling, the way he never smiled before he met her. It's as if what she is buying with her sacrifice is his happiness...























I love how implacable she is with DH. Even more, I love that she tells him she could forgive him for poisoning her because she is no longer in pain. But she can't forgive his attempts to harm CY and that is all she is thinking when she looks at him. Guuuuh. They are so Gift of the Magi, the other person above self types. The fact that she places harm to CY higher than attempt to kill her - OMFG, Eun Soo, you are beyond amazing.








And then CY shows up at the palace and I love how Jang Bin tries to calm him down but our unflappable general refuses to calm down, saying he can't sit still. OMFG, all that dam of reserve has slowly been chipping bit by bit and now it's about to fall apart.








And he crashes the royal dinner, utterly heedless of the guards and the danger to him, eyes only on ES who is, likewise, staring at him with all her heart in her eyes. And the way he treats DH as a minor annoyance (this must eat at sociopath DH, inflated with the sense of his own importance), and almost kills him without thought when he thinks he's a danger to ES and ES has to hang on his arm. And then they are left alone and the way he begs her to stay by his side, to do what she plans together, and he's figured it out that he's the reason she is doing this. And he asks her, desperately, when she will get the rest of her diary, and she says wedding night. But hastens to reassure him she'll steal it before then. And his face. And the way he hugs her when she confirms it's for him, all fierce and protective and desperate. But he doesn't drag her with him because he knows ES should do what she wants. Did you notice she wins every argument now?




























































































Ugh, scumbag, burning her diary. I hope you painfully get eaten by ticks!





ES with Lady Choi. I love the face Lady Choi makes when she realizes ES is as much in love with CY as he is with her.








CY is back at the palace and I love how he orders DH off the throne. ILY, CY!








This scene! I have so much love for this scene! First of all, by now they are such utter partners, sneaking around (or rather she is sneaking and he's sneaking behind her to protect her) and telling every emotional truth there is, not holding back. And he wants her to give up looking for the diary if the only thing in it is the manner/date of his death because he doesn't care about that, he just wants her safe. And her response that she must find it because there is nothing else she can do for him - that soon she will be gone and they will never be able to see each other again, and she MUST know he is living well. That is such a confession of love, you know! And his face - love and pride in her and resignation and impending loss. How can they be so expressive?
























































Lady Choi asks CY if he asked ES to stay and he says she doesn't want to stay. Liar! Poor darling liar! You haven't asked her, and your nobility prevents you from asking, but I bet if you asked, she'd stay (and I think he knows it, which is why he doesn't ask). And oh, the way he says there are days left - it kills me. It's as if he's resigned himself to his heart being ripped out of his body.





The most spectacular "I am dumping you" in history. CY telling her he didn't care about the notebook gave ES the freedom to dump scumbag. I especially love when he is all 'you don't want the diary?' (that you burned, you bastard!) and she is all 'nope!' And he tries to tell her if she dumps him, he will say it was because of her cheating on him with CY and she is all 'so?' He tries to say that means they will be flogged and made slaves and she points out GC wouldn't like it. Then scumbag is all 'I'll make you GC's slaves' and I love how she laughs in his face. But he does manage to blackmail her with the King's life. The thing that gets me, he tells her that everyone knows for CY, Goryo and the King come before a woman. WROOOOOOONG, scumbag! As the end of this episode demonstrates (and as CY's confession to the King in ep 18 that ES is always first to him demonstrates), you couldn't be further from the truth if you were on Mars.











So then there is the wedding from hell, and despite the fact that he is in the middle of planning a coup and the King has been attacked, CY comes anyway. Because she comes first. And I love how he never takes his eyes off her, not even when GC tries to attack him (and he now defeats GC easily - it's as if ES' love gave him power). And she tries to warn him about the King and get him to go but he won't - it's as if they switched roles, placing the other's importance about their own - she knows how important the King is to CY and negates her own desires for his. But the does the same for her. When he kisses her to break off the wedding (check out the scandalized faces of attendants, LOL), it may be a statement but it is also expression of feeling that can no longer be contained - in the middle of their enemies, of bloody coups and God knows what, they kiss and both close their eyes, both sink into it, as if the world and its dangers are immaterial to them now.












































Do you notice that even after the kiss is over, he keeps his hand on her neck, as if he can't bear to let her go, to stop touching her? And the way she looks at him, like woman in a dream...











DH orders him arrested and CY goes off to jail. Head held high. And oh, oh, oh, how Eun Soo shines. She is radiant there - and how could she not be, given such huge, tangible proof of his love and of her importance to him, above King and country. I love that though the whole DH tantrum and his arrest, CY keeps looking at ES as if everyone else doesn't matter. And he smiles. In the middle of it all, he smiles. Because his heart is at peace.


























This is a great contrast to how we first meet them - separate carriages, barely talking. Now, once again they are in danger, but they are together and draw strength from each other. This drama really seems to promote the idea that love makes you a better person.








Yesss! She took her lessons well. I loved it. But scumbag poisons her later. Can someone murder him already?








Ohhh, I totally cried as Woodalchi were cut down, but here I really lost it. And Gongmin feels so guilty and he knows CY will be devastated. GM is amazing!





This scene! He finds out ES has returned and runs. I died. And there is hugging (have you noticed how he initiates so much touching now?) and he is so worried and tender and she is smiling and I just want to protect the two of them forever. And she won't tell him about the poison, protecting him. And he tells her he was so worried about her and distracted. Which - closed off CY being so open and unabashed about his feelings, kills me. (Also, if this is how effective he is when distracted, I tremble for the world if he is ever fully attentive). And when he is with her, he totally forgot the King is coming and she had to remind him. OMFG. And he keeps turning to look at her. Oh my perfect tragic woobies!


















































DH in a circle of swords = life worth living.








CY finds out about the deaths of 24 of his men and tries to maintain his stoic facade but you see he is dying inside.








Awww, ES is so worried about him being late coming home. They are SUCH a married couple!





He is at the temple. And then Gongmin comes in. And CY blames himself for the deaths (not everything is your fault, CY!) And he pretty much tells GM that it's his fault because he put ES above everything. "She has always been first to me." And I love that even with that, he has no plans to distance himself from her. I discussed this scene in a previous post so I will refrain. All I will say is this is amazing.











And he comes home all drained and she tries to feed him and get him something to drink and she talks about the Woodalchi (and she knew so well how he feels and what he did) and then she does this thing with the signs and reads them to say everything will be OK (and he smiles! She can make him happy even in the depths of despair) but in reality the signs are asking if she can stay with him until she leaves. Oh, they break my heart!












































Gongmin and Nogook. And how she hates the palace because Gongmin has not been sleeping well. But what strikes me is that she says something that parallels what CY said before - that to her the person she loves (GM) is most important, so she is siding with him against her birth country. And I do think love is crucial - without love you turn into a soul-dead opportunist like DH.








They are so domestic - her with her messy hair and him reading in the corner, his feet up (and she makes him put them down, LOL). Ostensibly he is there to protect her, but you know he just wanted to hang out. And I think our general is VERY distracted by her hair - he is all 'put it up' etc. I bet if she really wandered around with messy hair a lot, he's totally not be able to restrain himself from pouncing.


























But then he notices her poison mark and is so angry but the anger is there to cover his terror (she is hurt yet again) and his hurt (she didn't love him enough to trust him with this) and she tries to explain that she didn't tell because he'd go to DH and who knows what DH would make him do and he's been hurt and imprisoned because of her so many times. But he is so heartbroken and walks off, and then the most amazing scene in the ep happens where she hugs him from behind, begging him not to turn and asks him if she can stay in this world. And his face! And he, of course, pretty much refuses - because she's been poisoned again, living proof of how deadly this world can be to her, and then she tells him that in that case she wants to keep loving him the way she wants to until she leaves, and can he promise to forrget her and not waste his life suicidally or sleep it away and he refuses to promise and they cling and just their faces and OMFG. Nothing can break CY except for her.









































I am with [livejournal.com profile] scottishlass, they totally made love between the last, full of tension and intensity scene and this one, which is light and domestic, with her tending her medications and him bringing in her mail, and her teasing that he should read the letter as she isn't good with Chinese and if it's a love letter, he should respond on her behalf :P








But it turns serious quickly when it turns out Yuan envoy wants her and he says they should run. Oh yes please. Please please please. Run away together, never get to that door, and raise warrior babies together. He earlier told her he will protect her and then take her to heaven's door, but that is one promise I want him to break.

















You alive yet, after reading all this? A medal for you. Well, a medal of a CY clone, your pick.

he wants her to marry her. She is all 'is that all?' Ovaries of steel, that is my Eun Soo
I love that. It's like "Pfffft, sure, let's do it. Can we get more food here?"

Love that after Aunt asked him where ES is, that she thought they were together, he then turned into this lost puppy. Pacing forward then back again. And he looked so lost coz he didn't know what to do next. Is it safe to say without ES he is without direction now?

CY finds out about the engagement from his aunt and storms off. He is certainly Mr. Frontal Attack.
Love the denial part where he's all "stop joking around". And then when he realizes that Aunt is serious. He's putting things together. He knows ES so well.

She's been dressed up like some sort of fancy doll to go meet Mr. Scumbag but all she can see is CY everywhere.
It's so cool how she's pulling and tugging her clothes in irritation. Lol. That's what ES wants to see all along. A happy and smiling CY. Living.

They are made for each other. But DH is right, she shouldn't show too much of her care for CY coz it's her weakness. Though I think by this time everyone in Goryo knows how they're both willing to sacrifice for each other.

OMFG, all that dam of reserve has slowly been chipping bit by bit and now it's about to fall apart.
About time! Lol. Just kidding. And we are here to reap the benefits. I love how worked up he is. Knowing ES is with an evil slime like DH, knowing she could be in so much danger. All for him.

But he doesn't drag her with him because he knows ES should do what she wants. Did you notice she wins every argument now?
Yes, and I love that he's already accepted this. The way he said "let's go. together.", there's a hint of fear there that he knows that's not going to happen. His face when he's asking her to stay by his side. At the core of it, all he's asking is to be able to spend more time with her, coz she's leaving him. When he asked that she's seriously going to wait till the wedding night, I'm seriously thinking how can DH still be alive at this point. I still can't get over the fact he's the one seeking to touch her now when before he's all get away from me.

I love that Aunt is the one who gets to listen to them ranting about each other. Like the time CY was pissed ES put a knife to her throat. Lol.

And his face - love and pride in her and resignation and impending loss. How can they be so expressive?

How can he not love this woman? I love how ES thinks she's being really sneaky when in fact she's already got a tail. Lol. And the fact that CY is always there for her. Awww. Love the little smile he has when he's watching her looking for her diary. Hee. A man in love. And when he prevented her from breaking that ceramic. I squeed. They're so couple-y. Hitting him on the chest and asking what he's doing there. And CY now has no sense of personal space between them. He didn't have to stand so close, almost blocking her in. Lol. Can we get an ES/CY detective show? Lol. Love the juxtapostion of ES finding the fallen guard and doing this funny step and CY just calmly hitting him with his sword. Lol. And when they were in that dark, enclosed space. Feels like lovers meeting secretly. The way CY was looking at her at first. The line "It's not as if we parted ways coz of a fight, not as if I can go see you when I get drunk" got to me. That is really it. So she can't give up. She needs to live the rest of her life knowing he is going to be alright. :( Kiss her! Okay, I know you will, but still.

The most spectacular "I am dumping you" in history

Lol. So cool. This is the part where even ES doesn't have an argument that CY will put her above his king. Awww. ES, you won't know what will hit you. Okay, you will know. CY's lips.

Do you notice that even after the kiss is over, he keeps his hand on her neck, as if he can't bear to let her go, to stop touching her? And the way she looks at him, like woman in a dream...

You think we'll get another kiss? One that doesn't have political strategy coming with it? Lol. But nevertheless, I still love the kiss.

I am shocked we got even one kiss in a sageuk, let alone a kiss with lip movement, so I wouldn't hold my hopes up, but then you never know - I didn't expect this one!

Awww. ES, you won't know what will hit you. Okay, you will know. CY's lips.

LOLOL

I'd watch the hell out of a ES/CY detective partners show. I looooved the way he calmly hit that guard again. And yes, the way he was looking at her - sometimes amused and sometimes deadly serious, but always with utter love.

The line "It's not as if we parted ways coz of a fight, not as if I can go see you when I get drunk" got to me. That is really it. So she can't give up.

Yes, the finality of it is so absolute and they both understand it - in some ways, it's worth than death because you can still feel.

And CY now has no sense of personal space between them.

Considering he kisses her to bits and hugged her twice (in a very desperate, clinging fashion), I think any attempt to maintain space would be futile :P

When he asked that she's seriously going to wait till the wedding night, I'm seriously thinking how can DH still be alive at this point.

Yes, I think DH is not long for this world.

And yes, the might general totally becomes a lost puppy without ES.

Another thing I noticed - ever since she showed up, he acts so much younger - I don't mean he is immature, but before her, he was this robot or a 100-yr person, and now he acts like a 20-something man.

Yeah, the writer will probably shock us all again. I hope it's a good kind of shock like this kiss!

I wish I had money to produce such a show. Lol. CY's always there for her, huh? Even catching her when she lost balance with her chair. So they have to stick together. Permanently. Lol. It's so different from the look of exasperation he had for her then. Hee.

Yes, the finality of it is so absolute and they both understand it - in some ways, it's worth than death because you can still feel.
All those feelings they have, all the memories, it's going to crush both of them. I can't see ways for them to "get over" one another. It's too impossible. I mean, there's no way out when they're crazily missing each other.

Considering he kisses her to bits and hugged her twice (in a very desperate, clinging fashion), I think any attempt to maintain space would be futile :P
Hee. I guess CY finally has realized it too. Good on him. That's what we want to see.

Another thing I noticed - ever since she showed up, he acts so much younger - I don't mean he is immature, but before her, he was this robot or a 100-yr person, and now he acts like a 20-something man.
Yes, he was so world-weary then but when ES came, he picked himself up and changed for the better. They've changed each other so much that not one thing can fill the void when they part ways. I just want to know how it all ends. :(

They are so different than they were at the start - that is why I think it will be so hard for them to move on - being with each other fundamentally transformed them, and how do you move past that?

So love that little smile. And the way ES was looking at him as he goes willingly to be taken away. Sigh.

Yesss! She took her lessons well. I loved it. But scumbag poisons her later. Can someone murder him already?
There's a long line already. Love that both of them has held a knife to this slime. Go ES!

This scene! He finds out ES has returned and runs. I died. And there is hugging (have you noticed how he initiates so much touching now?) and he is so worried and tender and she is smiling and I just want to protect the two of them forever.
Running is making me swoon. I love the little noise ES makes when he pulls her into his embrace. Aw. The way he held her like he's not going to let go. Ever. And when she's all I cried so he let me go. He's like "Huh? You cried?" Lol. But the way ES was looking at him, all shining eyes and soft smile, still trying to make like everything's alright. Awww.

And he tells her he was so worried about her and distracted. Which - closed off CY being so open and unabashed about his feelings, kills me.
Hee. Aw, CY. You can see he's forgotten about the king totally. And he's like do I really have to go? I want to stay here. Hee. Lovelove. I love that he takes a second longer to look at her before reluctantly turning to go and then he turns back again, and ES gives him her usual smile. And that makes everything better. It's like he has to see that smile always now. Wah. This is not going to be part of their goodbye at the portal, right? Where it's ES turning around this time to see him smile. Noooooooo.

And he comes home all drained and she tries to feed him and get him something to drink and she talks about the Woodalchi (and she knew so well how he feels and what he did)
I love the little smile he gives when ES guessed what he did. Aw. Love that she interrupted him explaining it was the initial plan to put DH in prison, and then their wedding will be held off, but he didn't expect DH to move it up like that, and ES just cuts him off. Love that she said "someone" will protect her here when CY asked if her idea of hiding is just this way. Hee. And the way she used the cue cards to somehow cheer him up a little at the same time, trying to convey to him what she really wants to say, and phrased it so his answer will be yes. The answer she wants to hear from him. :( At least she got him to smile. And I teared up when he said that this time he won't let her miss going to into Heaven's door and you can see it's killing him to say it. Killing both of them. :(

I bet if she really wandered around with messy hair a lot, he's totally not be able to restrain himself from pouncing.
My thoughts exactly. He's waaaaay hung up over her messy bedhead. Lol. He is a man after all. Love their reflection in the mirror though, for some reason. Like a married couple's portrait. Hee.

and then she tells him that in that case she wants to keep loving him the way she wants to until she leaves, and can he promise to forrget her and not waste his life suicidally or sleep it away and he refuses to promise and they cling and just their faces and OMFG. Nothing can break CY except for her.
I still get all teary when I watch this scene. Why can't they just be happy together? The way CY was so hurt that she hid this from him. Like he's still a stranger to her. And the way ES was looking at him like no, how can you even think that? Yes, CY how can you think that? This couple is killing me.

they totally made love between the last, full of tension and intensity scene and this one, which is light and domestic

What? Why didn't they let us see then?! Lool. It's so cute how ES is teasing him about responding for her. And CY as usual ignores her teasing. Coz he doesn't find it funny. He'd probably rip the letter as soon as he sees it's a love letter. Lol.

Oh yes please. Please please please. Run away together, never get to that door, and raise warrior babies together.
Warrior babies. Warrior babies. Seriously need them to be together. Or I'll just go crazy. Well, crazier. Gah. ES's all WTF? Again? Well, can you blame them? CY seriously has to fight everyone off of her.

CY clone, please!

I wonder who is going to kill DH.

So love that little smile. And the way ES was looking at him as he goes willingly to be taken away. Sigh.

Yes - she looks at him so happy and proud and shining. A man would be totally fine going to jail to have a woman he loves look at him like that.

Your theory about their goodbye at the portal kills me. They must be together, they must!

You can see he's forgotten about the king totally. And he's like do I really have to go? I want to stay here.

LOL so true. I love how everything is a distant second to ES for him now.

I teared up when he said that this time he won't let her miss going to into Heaven's door and you can see it's killing him to say it. Killing both of them.

You know he is still haunted by keeping her from that door back when. So he is going to expiate even if it tears out his soul, but I do not want that! I want him to be selfish for once!

He'd probably rip the letter as soon as he sees it's a love letter. Lol.

Totally.

Bed stuff between backhug and final scene is probably my wishful thinking but I can totally see that - I mean, she told him she will love him in any way she wants, and that would probably include...you know what. She IS a modern woman!

Ovaries of steel, that is my Eun Soo
I love her in this scene ... she is all WTF? You are so dumb, idiot! And she let's him know. I love that she implies that he might not manage to keep her till the wedding night (let alone life till then).

He is certainly Mr. Frontal Attack.
Isn't he just? I love how he is pacing like a forlorn puppy and yet he is already thinking about a new plan. I love that he always denies that he knows about all the political tactics and yet he is playing that game now, he has to.

She's been dressed up like some sort of fancy doll to go meet Mr. Scumbag but all she can see is CY everywhere.
She looked so etheral, like a fairy from Heaven and that she sees CY every where .. I think she wanted to bolster up her courage: this is my wedding, and this is the man I love, he is waiting for me. As if thinking, if I imagine I'm going to him instead of DH I can bear it all the better.

OMFG, all that dam of reserve has slowly been chipping bit by bit and now it's about to fall apart.
That chipping away started the moment he walked into that seminar room and she looked up and smiled at him. He was a goner at that moment and ES wasn't that far behind.

Did you notice she wins every argument now?
Not only that but this 14th cent. guy actually listens, he might not always like what he hears but he listens. Just as GM now does with his wife.

The most spectacular "I am dumping you" in history
And rightly so ... she is so get out of my face you scumbag and DH doesn't even register how close he is to being stabbed. Not because of her but because he threatens her love. So different from the ES who squeaked at every blood drop before. Now she is willing to shed blood in the name of her love and she bloody doesn't care! She has become a warrior('s) woman.

Do you notice that even after the kiss is over, he keeps his hand on her neck, as if he can't bear to let her go, to stop touching her? And the way she looks at him, like woman in a dream...
Es looked as if she had been just pole-axed. Before she knew he had feelings for her, but she never imagined he would show them so openly with utter disregard to the powers that be. That knowledge now gives her the liberty in turn to show her love for him, danger be damned.
And the touching .. I love how he invades her space in such subtle ways ... the times he has stood behind her ... a wall of protection and now he just can't help to touch, to feel, to allow himself that he has a right to do so.

I love her new hair/dress btw - it makes her look very feminine.

It's true, they had that intense connection from the first, even if not acknowledged.

This drama is very good about its portrayal of women and relationships as they should be.

I also love the fact that Lady Choi is so accepting of their bond. She might not like it but seeing those two she has accepted it and also is happy about her nephew not being that killing machine anymore.
I loved the fact that now he is always running towards her.

I love her new hair/dress btw - it makes her look very feminine.
I loved how she looked for her wedding. She looked so radiant once CY turned up. The camera man and lightning crew did a wonderful job there. And her hair :)


It's true, they had that intense connection from the first, even if not acknowledged.
Yup, and the way he got annoyed with her because she was so different from all the women he had knwon before. But do you remember when she cut her pants off and the Woodalchi were all oogling her and he got really angry with them (I think he threw something at them)? His protective streak was there already have way turning into love by then.


This drama is very good about its portrayal of women and relationships as they should be.
Oh absolutely, and I hope those who watch it in Korea will notice and try to implement that into their lives.

I feel like crying now. You are so right.
I will be really sad if they don't get a happy ending. I don't know why but this drama really captured my heart. And I think I'm halfway in love with Choi Young Daesang as well LOL

He is always running towards her. He's changed so much. No wonder LC is happy with him having ES in his life - it must have hurt her to see him so dead for so long.

Her hair is gorgeous....

But do you remember when she cut her pants off and the Woodalchi were all oogling her and he got really angry with them (I think he threw something at them)?

Yes, and he was gulping at her legs!

I love it that Lady Choi has somehow become closer to him - I always had the impression that while they were related, their relationship was not on good terms and never this close. I guess LC didn't want to have a cold killing machine as nephew.

Yep, gulping. It was hilarious esp as she had all these cuts and bruises on her legs. But I really think part of his attraction to her (apart from loving her zest for life) is the fact that she has that coloured hair and that she almost always wears it open.

Ah I love those two to bits, They are so functional as a couple. Even if they quarrel, there is this underlining understanding and respect and support for each other that most drama couples (modern or sageuk) lack. Their problems stem from outside sources and not through petty misunderstandings or false pride. And they always pull through which gives me hope for a happy ending (please, please, kdrama gods!!!!)

That is a good point about Lady Choi - when he was as closed off as he was, nobody could get through and close to him.

I agree, her hair is totally a fixation for him. Now there is a NC-17 fic waiting to happen :)

I agree - in addition to being lovers, these two work perfectly as friends and partners. They are beyond compatible.

They are beyond compatible.
And it would be an utter disappointment to have these two live their life separated. The whole theme of Faith is about taking faith in friends, comrades, king etc. It's such a strong red ribbon throughout the series and it would be completely wasted if the OTP would lose all faith because they can't be together.

As for the NC17 fic ... I'm trying .. I really am.

As you know, I'm strangely not gaga Lee Min Ho, despite knowing objectively how aesthetically fantastic he is. But I love his acting. It's so genuine. Especially the most meaningful beats come from deep within him and evince a quiet genuineness. THAT I do find sexy. Melt your knees kind of sexy.

He really is good - he was good despite everything in bad dramas, but now that he is doing good ones, whoa.

Did you notice she wins every argument now?

Oh yes, I did. Tickles me silly that our deadly general is such a lamb with her now.

I look forward to your post so much dangermousie and you always bring so much love and clarity to them. <3

Thank you!
