Day 29 — What do you plan on doing now that LOST is over?
We started watching them again from the beginning as soon as season 6 ended. We’re nearly finished again. I plan on rewatching over and over again. I really don’t think there could ever be another show to top it.
Today I went to the London Tattoo Convention. We go every year and don’t normally get anything done but this year we had early bird tickets. There were already hundreds of people there when we arrived and they all seemed to want tattoos from the Frith Street booth, as did we. I was hoping to get another Valerie Vargas tattoo but I knew it was unlikely, I also wanted my fingers done by Stuart Robson. All of Valerie’s appointments quickly filled up and everyone dispersed but me and Adam went over anyway and it turned out Stuart still had spots. So I became the first tattoo of the morning. Adam also got tattooed by Stuart with an amazing wolf head. The morning was spent hanging around the booth having a laugh and getting amazing tattoos! Excellent! My tattoo is actually 4 tattoos. “Fate” on my left index finger, “Late” on my right index finger, “117” on my left pinkie and “195” on the right pinkie. The first two are obvious Lost/Charlie references to anyone who watches the show. The numbers are Ben and Charlie’s candidate numbers. I already have the 6 famous numbers on my leg. Right now my fingers are really fat and I can’t really bend them but here are the first photos anyway.
Sawyer’s nicknames, time travel, polar bears, Benjamin Linus, Charlie Pace, Apollo Bars, Richard’s eyelashes, Dharmaville 1977, flashes of any kind, buttons, fish biscuits, 4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42, electromagnetism, constants, fist-fights, daddy issues, hatches, others…..not knowing what the fuck is going on!
That’s hard because it’s difficult to separate them from their characters sometimes, and because I haven’t seen many of them in other things. Probably……. Michael Emerson, I remember him in Saw and he scared the hell out of me.
My newest MCR tattoo is this Party Poison inspired number under my Revenge tattoo. As we don’t know much about the Killjoys yet I can’t say much about it other than it would seem Gerard is Party Poison. Terrible picture I know….
I don’t really have one. There were murmurings about how people can or can’t die on the Island depending on if they are alive or dead off the Island…I don’t really remember but it was interesting at the time. I once thought the Island was a huge submarine. The theory that Desmond’s son is Charlie is cute but stupid. I always thought Aaron was more important than he was. Walt as well (although that kind of came true in the epilogue).
I doubt very much I’m like any of them. I wish I was! I guess, at a push, I’d say Juliet. She loves her family (her sister and nephew) and would do anything to get back to them, I know I can’t stand to be away from Adam for long so we have that in common. She also settles into a really simple life with Sawyer in 1977 Dharmaville and I like to think I’d be happy with that sort of existence. She has quite a strong moral code, as do I (most of the time) and will fight to do what she believes is best. One way in which we’re different though is that I would never refuse the advances of Ben. Ever.
Other than that…maybe Penny. She lives for Desmond and little Charlie and I think I’m very much the same. Adam is my constant.
Day 16 — Character death that made you cry the most
Everyone knows how I’ll answer this. Charlie’s. But really I cried twice for him. There was when he was strung up by Ethan and Jack and Kate fought to save him. I really thought he’d gone and it was way too soon. Heartbreaking and one of the darkest things I’d seen on TV for a while; blindfolded and hanging from a tree in the jungle. I was so happy when he came around. Then came his real death that I really do think is the most beautiful and terrible TV death ever. He came to terms with what he had to do and became a true hero, sacrificing everything he’d gained on the Island. “Not Penny’s boat”. *Sobs*.
Season 5. I do adore season 1 but it’s almost a different show. Nothing can beat the mystery of season 1 but season 5 has Dharma 1977, young Ben and a dapper old Ben. The only thing it doesn’t have is Charlie :(
