searching our hearts for so long
searching our hearts for so long
Sparktober 2014 - 31 Days of John & Elizabeth | Day 1
You realise that could get us into all sorts of trouble?
We don’t read and write poetry because it’s cute. We read and write poetry because we are members of the human race. And the human race is filled with passion. And medicine, law, business, engineering, these are noble pursuits and necessary to sustain life. But poetry, beauty, romance, love, these are what we stay alive for. To quote from Whitman, “O me! O life!… of the questions of these recurring; of the endless trains of the faithless… of cities filled with the foolish; what good amid these, O me, O life?” Answer. That you are here - that life exists, and identity; that the powerful play goes on and you may contribute a verse. That the powerful play *goes on* and you may contribute a verse. What will your verse be?
Rest in peace.
so sad :(
Hotch/Reid: Favorite Moments, pt. 1
surely the fact that I could actually *hear* Hotch’s voice in all of these isn’t a sign of addiction, is it?
Evolution of a friendship: Emily Prentiss & Aaron Hotchner
Requested by jareaus-prentisses
More Emily love.
They were such good friends. I think I loved Emily/Reid the most but Emily/Hotch was a very close second.
Why do I always ship the ships that will never be!? I see it, so much. And love it so much! And I miss Emily!
“We genuinely get along. On other sets they say ‘Cut’ and everybody goes to their trailers. Here everybody stays.We’re all joking around and talking.”
This is what I love about this show - they all seem to genuinely get along on and off set and I think it shows in the acting.
I love the behind the scenes silliness! Love this show and this cast! (Totally miss Paget!)

I would love a pair of shoes like this, but they’d haveta not cover my ankles. I have a thing about that.
I kinda want these. And I don’t do flowers usually but these? I’d rock the shit outta these!
More rambling about Huff…pretty sure I’m the only person on my tumblr who has seen (or even heard of) it but there is just so much that I need to put out here and get organized in my brain (the bunnies want a Beth-study fic and it’ll be a while til I can write it).
So much of Beth and Huff’s marriage mirrors what mine was. Obviously there are differences, but essentially, theirs falls apart for a lot of the same reasons that mine did.
I wish, though, that my ex-husband had been as interested in talking it all out as Huff was. Of course, Huff was a shrink, and shrinks talk shit out (and he’s a fictional character with a script writer, but whatever). My ex never wanted to talk, never wanted to engage.
I feel Beth’s need for attention. I am the giver in all of my relationships. I am the one who pays attention and is there to lift the other person up. The support. Seldom, however, is that reciprocated. Interestingly enough, in many of my new friendships, I get that support and attention that I need. But when it comes to romantic relationships, I rarely ever did. Toward the end of my marriage, before he created a situation that made him feel less guilty about walking out, I got no attention or support.
i can relate to Beth on so many levels, not only in this fight but throughout the entire two seasons of the show.
I haven’t seen the last three eps yet (off to do that now, actually), so I don’t know what became of their marriage. I do, however, know what happens when the husband still doesn’t pay attention, and have the divorce decree to show for it.
Also..really kinda sad that 1) I never knew this show existed when it was actually on and that it’s taken me 10 years to discover it and 2)it only went two seasons.
I should be sleeping…but true to form, I watched on interview on youtube and have spent the last hour and a half clicking clip after clip. This post is it…then it’s time for bed *nod*
I just recently watched this ep as part of my whole CM straight-through watch. But this scene…I’ve been watching it over and over for the subtext (kinda like I’m a profiler too) and omg it all just breaks my heart.
Emily’s reaction as Reid shares his death-experience (that they’d all witnessed so it wasn’t a surprise to any of them that he’d died and been resuscitated); the huskiness of her voice as she shares her experience, so different from Reid’s (and subsequently shares her fear that it won’t be different next time); JJ and Hotch still feeling some guilt in the lie; non of them realizing how close they’d actually come to losing Emily; Reid’s voice, so childlike and incredulous, asking “you actually died?”; Morgan just plowing on through with the profile, like knowing he’d actually lost Prentiss for a short time is too much to handle right now (and they do still have an unsub to catch); and Rossi just looks on, processing it all in that Rossi way.
The plot bunnies are a-hoppin’ and the muse is loving all the emo angst this show gives her episode after episode (it doesn’t hurt that I of course ship the ship that can’t ever happen - talk about emo angst!).
Paget as Beth Huffstodt on the brilliant shortlived show “HUFF”. Discussing blowjob parties with her son and husband. I do not own this clip. Used for entert…
I recently discovered the show “Huff”, thanks to falling in love with Paget Brewster on Criminal Minds and wanting to check out other work she’s done. I will probably post more and more clips from the show but this one HAS to be the first.
Because the reality of this scares the shit out of me. I have heard of these blowjob parties - and I pray that by the time my boys are old enough to be interested in girls that either A) these parties cease to exist or B) I’ve taught my sons enough about respecting themselves and others to choose not to participate.
There are just so many reasons why this is just so wrong….
And Beth’s (Brewster) reaction is so beautifully perfect - the idea that while Byrd and Huff simply see her as “mom” and she reacts as “woman” says so much. I understand the way a woman’s identity changes when she becomes a wife and a mother - like she’s no longer simply “woman” but morphs into something different. She’s seen as provider, nurturer, caregiver. She’s no longer a person with valid feelings that deserve respect.
And the fact that Huff is a psychiatrist and has lost sight of this is just…well, kinda brilliant for the direction the show takes through it’s 2-season run.
This scene spoke to so many things I’ve felt through the years as a wife (now ex-wife technically) and mom and is just perfect. We need to remember that we’re still, at the most basic, women and that we deserve to be heard and respected. And it’s ok to speak up and sometimes even shout it out when we’re not.
