Thanks! Leave a comment if you like it.
“If you tell me that you can pilot an aircraft, I’ll be yours forever.”
“I can pilot an aircraft.”
"If Logan has noticed, he hasn’t shown it. A part of her wants to know, wants to reach out to the past version of him who was all exposed nerve and pull him to the present. The boy who openly admired her, told her how beautiful she was at every opportunity."
I loved it. I’m in fangirl bliss.
*whispers*please write more :)
Anonymous asked: re: the 'woof' hand swipe, idk, but maybe he's checking to make sure they got all the chocolate sauce off?
This may be the best answer EVER to that question. Thank you, anon, for making this possible in my head.
I remember when the episode aired, there was a different explanation floating around and we’re just going to leave it at that because I’m a lady.
I was gonna say, my explanation is a lot simpler and a helluva lot dirtier.
What’s yours? The consensus at the time was
yourmoonyface asked: *lacks preamble* if you had to narrow down logan echoll's character to three defining moments, what would they be?
Impossible! How can you narrow Logan Fucking Echolls - the most complex character EVER - down to only three moments?
Actually, choosing the first two is easy.
1x6 Return of the Kane. Ventura Highway. — When we first see Logan with Aaron, he’s capitulating to something he’s clearly uncomfortable with (posing for the tour bus crowd). In later shots, he’s cowering in fear. He physically gets smaller when he’s around his father. Draws in on himself. Speaks in a unoffensive voice. But there’s this moment when the Ventura Highway song kicks in that takes my breath away. Aaron pulls away from the gas station, and the camera watches Logan watching Aaron. It’s a close shot - uncomfortably close. And I feel like he has an epiphany here. He takes the message from the homeless vet, applies it to his father, and He’s. Just. Fucking. Done. He takes back his power. He goes to the shelter and commits half a mil of his father’s money. He chooses his belt with his head high. He has no regrets. And he never ever cowers from Aaron again.
3x20 The Bitch Is Back. ”Yeah. Someday.” Gory is connected-connected, and Logan doesn’t give two fucks. He has nothing to gain here. He’s not going to “get the girl”. He’s not even going to earn her forgiveness. He makes this decision fully aware that it’s all risk with no reward. He does what he knows is right. He takes a stand and avenges Veronica when she can’t do so for herself. And he walks away with his dignity, stopping on the way out to apologize to the person he had wronged.
This is where it gets hard. My first instinct is to go with 1x21 ATTtD "If you have a problem with my girlfriend, head for the rectangle with the knob.". Or maybe 2x22 NP, where he swallows his own complicated feelings about Cassidy’s death and Aaron’s release from jail, in order to be a rock for Veronica. Or 3x13 PM, where he cleans himself up and goes back to school - this time, not for Veronica, but for himself. Because he finally realizes he’s worth it.
But instead, I’ll going to go with a quieter moment.
3x4 Charlie Don’t Surf ”You and your dad - you know that thing that you have? I never had that.” This entire episode defines Logan - from the adorably awkward dinner at the Mars’ house to the ending where he keeps trying to reach the real Charlie. He is a product of his upbringing. He’s always going to be the kid who wasn’t loved enough. Who wasn’t given as a child what most people take for granted. He’s always going to crave that kind of family connection he was denied. Hopefully, he found some of that in the miltary. Hopefully, he’ll be welcomed into the Mars family in the upcoming books/movies.
