"Lillian’s approach to her death — reasoned and methodical until the very end — is moving enough, but Virginia’s response to it is really well-done, too. This will sound weird, but sometimes I actually forget that Lillian and Virginia are friends, mostly because Lillian’s stoicism and Virginia’s spunk seem so at odds that they should logically be enemies. But really, in a TV landscape where non-competitive, Bechdel-compliant friendships are rare, they are — ugh, were — a pretty remarkable pair. As Virginia reconciles herself to the fact that Lillian won’t continue treating her cancer, we watch her come to terms with the fact that Lillian’s way is best simply because it’s hers. She can’t do it any other way.
"It’s a leap for Virginia to mentally accept that the decision to let go isn’t actually counter to the "ferocity" she’s always loved in Lillian, but it takes even more for her to watch her die — to help her, even, just by virtue of not intervening. This is a show that’s shown us all sorts of love and all sorts of intimacy in all sorts of ways, but I don’t know that there’s ever been a scene so lovely and right as Virginia climbing into bed with Lillian after she overdoses on sleeping pills. Farewell, Lillian.”
-There’s Lillian-tha, with her crown and her chariot.
-Lillian-tha, there’s no Lillian-tha.-Oh, you don’t know that myth? The warrior princess? Strong and brave? And so tall and beautiful that she struck some men down. Some men very down. But she knew who she was. And that is why she burned so brightly. You could always spot her in the sky.

OH THANK YOU!!! :D Lately my blog’s been a bit Doreah-lacking, but she is first and foremost my reason for blogging here. My love for her will never die (and I’m sure other Doreah stans feel the same, hehe). Haha, you’re welcome! I can’t stand blogs that have hidden nav or reblog buttons too! Never apologise for such kind words! xx
Did you ever fall in love with a boy?
I think so…no one’s ever been in love with me, though. Not that I’ve known of, anyway. I’ve had relations a few times. But no one’s ever stayed. You know, lingered. That’s what I’ve missed out on—that kind of closeness.
