Thoughts while rewatching 513 this evening:

1. I remember when the "Its only time" speech made me so sad. Now it makes me laugh so hard. Omg he is such a drama queen.

2. My only real complaint about the last episode is that aesthetically, I don't love the sex scene.

3. I wouldn't change the ending. Brian in the strongest space he's ever been mentally, is kind of perfect. He really can't dance, but that doesn't stop the last scene from being absolutely gorgeous.

Also, and I've had this thought many times, not just tonight: I'm certain that a few months after Melanie and Lindsay moved to Toronto and marriage became legal in Massachusetts, they had second thoughts about moving to Toronto. I'm certain that since they were already in Toronto, they decided to give it their all. I'm certain that roughly a year later, after realizing they could be much closer to everyone in western Massachusetts, and Melanie could practice law, and that their marriage would still be recognized, they moved to Massachusetts. And they built a beautiful life there.

Yes to all of the above. Except for the part about Brian's dancing. Brian is an excellent dancer. *waltzes away in my perfect little world*

I have another couple that fits into your dark hair and blonde hair duo...its piper and alex from orange is the new black..( I remember from a post you did a long time ago talking about it)

omg!!..that would make more sense of Mel and Linds moving to Massachusetts than to Toronto..

I still cry when I watch 5-13..but now they are happy tears..cuz I know that brian and Justin are together..just not in the same city..

I *still*..think Cowlip still could have had their open concept but Brian could have received a call from Justin while on the dance floor..smiled and cut!!

I always totally understood why M&L would have moved. But I would be surprised if they'd stayed when things really started to change here. Unless everything went perfectly for them there.

imo..I think they stay in Toronto..& wait to see what happens on prop 14 (it took me awhile to figure out Cowlip is talking 14th amendment here)..if prop 14 gets voted down..they would move back..or like you said to Massachusetts..

1. You make me want to rewatch and see what I think now that so many years have passed. Man, my life and the country and the world have changed so much since I watched 513 for the first time.

2. I never liked the pictures of them projected on their bodies. Weird. But I love the song - Ambition by Doves. It is set as my alarm ringtone because I couldn't handle any sort of loud beeping first thing in the morning. The first few times it made me think about Brian and Justin, but now it's just my alarm.

3. I watched the entire series after it aired, so I never had any issues with the ending like other people seemed to. I think probably because I immediately transitioned from watching 513 to reading post-513 fics where Brian goes to NYC or Justin comes back or one of them gets hit by a bus and it's all very tragic and sad :)

I love your head canon about Mel and Linds.

Scrolled through my icons and selected one at random, because why not? :)

1. So true! And so wonderful! To think how far we've come between now and then. :)
