Molly: The last time I saw my mom and dad, I was eight going on nine… eight years, six months, and three days… almost as old as you are. They were going on tour and leaving me behind for the first time, because they didn’t want me missing any more school, and they came to my room to say goodbye and I wouldn’t open the door, so they left. I fell asleep and then the next thing I know, my nanny was waking me up in the middle of the night telling me their plane had crashed.
Lorraine: You’re lucky… that you were mad. See, when you’re mad you don’t miss people and if you stay mad, it’s like you never knew them at all… that way you don’t have to feel sucky about it… You were lucky…
Molly: I wasn’t mad, I was confused… everyone was talking, talking, talking at me and I couldn’t understand a word they were saying, and then their voices became a blur and soon I couldn’t even recognize their faces; they were like these blobs and they started to grow fangs and their eyes became green and I knew I had to run away. So I packed my knapsack, got on the train, and looked up at the map and decided I wanted to live on Coney Island. I thought it would be… you know… a real island. That I thought I could hide there like Tom Sawyer and Huckleberry Fin, but imagine my surprise… The teacups were the only ride they would let me on by myself, so I got on it and I started spinning around and ‘round and ‘round. But I feel like I am still there… spinning ‘round and ‘round and ‘round… and the ride won’t stop… You were right, Ray, I am scared. But you’re scared too. You’re scared as I am and I thought that maybe if we could go together…
Yup, that’s the point you just stay still and let it do whatever the fuck it wants that doesn’t involved you getting eaten.
REALLY FUN FACT for big cats cheetahs are fucking docile as shit
my grandfather ran a cheetah sanctuary in south africa and he’d just lie with them and sleep among them and they’d rub against him and chirp at him they’re big fucking babies
Another Fun Fact: Cheetahs are incredibly nervous animals. One of the (many) reason’s they’re going extinct is that cheetahs are so sensitive and nervous, some of them are literally too nervous to breed. Other’s will breed, but stress themselves out so much that they’ll loose their cubs.
So zoo’s with breeding program’s had to figure out how to make Cheetahs comfortable enough to: A. Get laid and B. Not spazz themselves into miscarrying.
So what’d they do? They gave the cheetahs their very own Service Dogs!
The dogs make them feel safe, protected and secure!
Andrew Marlowe and the Castle writers, getting foreshadowing right since 2009: “Think of foreshadowing as setup. The best foreshadowing is subtle and is woven into the story; often in multiple ways. In this fashion, foreshadowing helps build tension and gives resonance and power to the story.”
