Tom Riddle hit the floor with a mundane finality, his body feeble and shrunken, the white hands empty, the snakelike face vacant and unknowing. Voldemort was dead, killed by his own rebounding curse, and Harry stood with two wands in his hand, staring down at his enemy’s shell.

John Crichton + tickles my pickle
#the thing i love so much about john crichton is that he is nominally the leading man #but rapidly undermines every macho romantic trope there is #he is the physically less capable to the trained sublime warrior that is aeryn sun #he’s considered an idiot barbarian by most species he encounters #he rapidly eschews and abandons almost every inhibition or notion of normality he has #which includes the trappings of macho-ness (which - interestingly - he only assumes #when he is impersonating a peacekeeper captain) #he’s emotionally raw and vulnerable and unstable - #in fact in some story arcs occupies the same kind of narrative role as women often get shunted into a la river song #the one with otherworldly power or knowledge or capacity that makes them terrifying and a target and often out of control of their own agenc #agency #and he swings wildly from being a figure of absolute ridiculousness or absurdity to terrifying violent lows #i’ve said it before and i’ll say it again #in any other show these people would be the villains #they are branded as fugitives and terrorists and it *gets* to them #they get compromised and make stupid cruel selfish choices oriented entirely around self-preservation and home #and family #and john crichton devolves entirely from his polished scientist-astronaut daredevil leading man #into something much more peculiar and subversive and viscerally thrilling #and he keeps his heart the whole way through
I like your analysis of John Crichton.
❝ Stage is my first love, absolutely. It’s hard work, but it’s so rewarding. You know if they love you and you know if they don’t. A live performance is a living thing. It changes every night. You’re saying the same words, and it’s the same people you’re working with day in and day out, but it’s a living, breathing, thing, because it’s live. ❞

Okay, I want to change my url. I’ll change it back if ccharlesxavier ever comes back and will be cute matching mine and sseancassidy's urls again. But for now… IT'S TIME TO CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-CH-CHANGE!
