    Rant and Rave without Repercussions [S7 Leaks Edition]

    NCW: "You always look for little clues... There are a lot of, all throughout season 8, moments where you go, ahhh, I remember that in season 2, and now... Surely at one point we're going to meet again, there must be some payoff, and now..." Here's another where he says they revisit the early seasons in the final season: They set up a lot of this early on...

    Outlander II: Sing me a Song...

    Sure is! Here's more on the locations: Showrunner Ron Moore reveals that the producers did initially investigate shooting the new season in the United States as many other TV shows do, but ultimately decided against it. “We looked into it, and it just didn't make sense to us for a lot of reasons, both financial and also we have this enormous infrastructure and this amazing team of artisans and craftspeople and crew in Scotland, and ultimately we just didn't really want to let go of and start all over again," Moore says. “So we will shoot Scotland for America. We will also travel to eastern Europe to do some exterior work to sort of sell the mountains of North Carolina the rivers and things like that.” https://mashable.com/2017/12/10/outlander-season-4-america-spoilers-season-3-finale-recap/

    He sure did. It's shocking even today. Wow.

    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    Fabulous! I wonder sometimes if birds know how fabulous they are and how much joy they bring us. I hope so!
  7. A good quote from Jamaica Inn, by Daphne du Maurier, about that push and pull that is typical of the romances in this series. "Falling in love was a pretty name for it, that was all. Jem Merlyn was a man, and she was a woman, and whether it was his hands or his skin or his smile she did not know, but something inside her responded to him, and the very thought of him was an irritant and a stimulant at the same time. It nagged at her and would not let her be."
  8. I added those! Kept finding more.
  9. Glad you liked it! For the purposes of this thread, the term "romance" is used in terms of the overall story. With romance as a genre, the story often begins when the characters are younger, to show character development that leads to the eventual romantic conclusion. The seeds are planted, then grow, it's all part of the "romance" as a story. Adding this video I found, just to show an example from another story, starting the story when they are young to set up the connection, like with George and Mary in It's A Wonderful Life:
  10. Ah, that's beautifully said, and very true. She gets to decide, and that's what makes it so special.
  11. Oh, that's a good one! There's also a name Geillis as a "seer of the future" uses, Melisande! And lots more, like Jamie saying to Claire, like Sandor says to Sansa, whether you will it or no, which is about strong feelings on an instinctual level, something deep and true. I like that DG says Marsali's strength is her own inner feelings, and knowing what she wants. That's something no one can ever take from her, not even a cruel world, that strength that comes from within.
  12. He's got some nice Jane Eyre ones going on, too. Right down to the wording, I'll add that later.
  13. Nice points, and a great find of the cedar hope chest mention in GRRM's other story! These were commonly used by young women to prepare for married life. I found some ads here and here. Love stories are about hope, and this one is beautifully so. Found a nice quote from Diana Gabaldon in Voyager, Marsali reminds me of Sansa. She wants to marry the man she loves, Fergus, who, like Sandor, has only his heart to offer, and he's older, too (Marsali is 15, Fergus is 30), but she knows what she wants: So she had done it. One fifteen-year-old girl, with nothing but stubbornness as a weapon. “I want him,” she had said. And kept saying it, through her mother’s objections and Jamie’s arguments, through Fergus’s scruples and her own fears, through three thousand miles of homesickness, hardship, ocean storm, and shipwreck. She raised her face, shining, and found her mirror in Fergus’s eyes. I saw them look at each other, and felt the tears prickle behind my lids. “I want him.”
  14. Great points! And this is what it comes down to, she wants to make her own choices! (I put the quote on the next page!)
  15. Sandor showed love for Sansa from the start, I think the turning point in their story is that Sansa shows her love for Sandor. Now it's her turn to show her love for him, and I think she will in a big way, it's the next beat of the Beauty and the Beast story. In Pride and Prejudice, Mr. Darcy showed his love for Elizabeth Bennet by looking out for her sister, and she was very moved by that. I think we will see a similar scene in this series, Sandor showed his love for Sansa by looking out for her sister.
