skins meme: 1/6 OTPs (Rich Hardbeck & Grace Violet Blood)
“What do people in Shakespeare plays do when it’s all fucked, when they’re trapped? Maybe stories are just stories, or maybe we could make our life a story. So marry me, Grace Violet Blood.”
A few months ago I dragged Rich along to this carnival but Rich, being Rich, decided that the carnival was ‘lame’ and only for ‘wankers’ who want to spend loads on winning ‘cheap useless bollocks’ so naturally he grumped and wouldn’t go on the rides with me so I grumped right back and went on the big wheel alone.
15 minutes later I see him trying to knock a coconut off of a shy for me. He was TERRIBLE…I mean there were children laughing and everything. I secretly watched him spend about £20 on the game until eventually the man at the stall took pity on him and gave him that duck.
Later on Rich found me, apologised and gave me the duck (he told me he found it on the floor). That’s why I love my duck, and the boy even if he throws like a girl.
Grace x Rich is so cute, I can’t even deal.
I quite liked the parallelism with the old couple that Rich/Grace asked to be their witnesses. When Grace’s head was resting on Rich’s shoulder, in the background, you could see the old couple in the back in the exact same position! So maybe Grace won’t die, because there’s this hint that Rich/Grace will live to be an old couple?
OH MY GOD PLEASE YES. PLEASE LET THEM GROW OLD TOGETHER :’)
Hehehehehe, I’m so glad my observation is giving hope to all of the Rich/Grace shippers out there! PLEASE LET ME BE RIGHT.
Instead of working on my Physics PSet, I wrote a Skins one-shot.
Lots of fluff fluff fluff, just in time for Valentine’s Day! :)
Freya, you are flawless. Her acting in tonight’s episode was so on-point and she makes the greatest faces and she is adorable off-screen.
Also, I am very happy with the Rich/Grace and how it stayed lovely and awkward. I hope there is much lovely awkwardness to come.
I appreciate how this series of Skins has been a lot more…I don’t know, relatable? But that’s not quite the right word. I like how this series has brought back into the forefront all of the insecurities that come with being a teenager. And what, extracurriculars?! Maybe it’s because I’m an overachiever, but part of what resonated with me with Mini tonight is how she put so much into that fashion show and it had become something that important to her. (Of course, there were other things I loved) And I love how the adults, in general, have been far less of a caricature than they have been previously. And that there are real friendships. And that it’s NOT all about having crazy parties and sex and drugs - that’s certainly not the majority of a teenager’s life and I’m sorry, but if you think that that’s what Skins is about, then you’ve been missing out on what makes Skins great.
Just watched the second ep. of UK Skins.
I have to say, I’m really pleased at how great these first two episodes have been. And my Grace/Rich shipping was encouraged with tonight’s episode - although, of course, frustrated in the end. But! I have hope that this means their relationship will have proper development and I’d rather have that anyway.
Also, Alo is amazing. Everybody was hating on Will before, but he is spectacular.
