But then suddenly something’s different. You feel the wind on the tips of your fingers, and the rain. Because before that you’re not really sure where you are but… but now you know. And you’re pushing through and then all this stuff at once. The moon and this incredible storm blowing. And the clock chiming midnight and you’re just standing there. N o b o d y else around.
#somewhere in the ether there’s words for how good this show is#how brave and wise and horrifying and beautiful and important#this incredible complex fable about difference and minorities and illness and intolerance and survival#it’ll break your fucking heart#and it’ll keep doing it#because the characters are so intimately & tenderly drawn#every single one#[especially the female characters]#and the whole thing just says#look#look at how terrible and fearful and petty and cruel and stupid humans are#and look at how brilliant and courageous and tragic and loving#god i don’t even know how to praise it high enough it’s fucking astonishing#i just mainlined the most recent eps off iplayer & i’m a goddamn wreck#i’m just#god#it’s so good#every second of it aches and it’s so bloody good(x)
