Comments & credit are always very much appreciated!

The Kate & Mother icons aren't shipper stuff, they are for my pet theory that Mother was a time traveling Kate.

These...these are absolutely gorgeous! Each one is prettier than the last and I really can't pick a favorite. I'll be over here drooling over these!!

You're too kind, thank you very much Laura! :D

Gorgeous! This was a great episode to icon.

Thank you so much! Yes there were so many great moments I could've done 20 more. :)

The emotions are so perfect for this episode; I am somewhat reserved about loving it thoroughly, just because there was so much potential seeping out from every pore of this episode that wasn't actualized, and I feel like the emotions you picked sort of encompass all of that. Really beautiful work, bb!

Thank you very much! Yes, there was a lot of potential for these characters - they really could have told more stories in flashbacks throughout season six. I loved watching Jacob's backstory more than some of the flash sideways stuff. The biggest potential wasted also, is who is Mother & where did she come from and who give her the job? Well, you can see what I like to imagine as her back-story,;p; But it would have been nice to see a real one!

Agreed about the sideways stuff. It still seems somewhat gratuitous and arbitrary for the viewer because we obviously didn't need to be waken up about their island past :x Darlton, we could've used that time learning more island mythology backstory :( :(

Right, we were just wondering why everyone forgot, but there was no suspense as to what they had forgotten! Plus I don't think any one could ever forget the Island. Especially Locke and Jack (who basically died for it). Speaking of potential, I was thinking it would have been cool if Locke was the Charles Widmore of the sideways world instead of just being regular Locke, and all of their lives were vastly different.
May. 25th, 2011 08:11 pm (UTC)
That would've been so much more interesting! (Speaking of, why didn't Ben and Charles have any interaction in the sideways? I feel like the sideways ended up oversimplifying the rather complicated tangled web of relationships created on the island.)
May. 27th, 2011 04:56 pm (UTC)
I know, Ben & Widmore were mortal enemies! But Ben had forgotten they were dead and he once had been alive on the Island while Eloise & Widmore the other leaders of the Others remembered it. Don't get me started, because I still say no one who had been there would ever forget the Island. I've complained about this before, but IMO it would have made more sense if everyone was longing to go back to the Island again, and they all went to LAX at the end thinking they were going to depart only to remember they were "departed" and already on another "plane" of existence.
Then Jacob (who protected the light for 2000 years) could have led them into that mysterious light at the end. Nothing against Jack's father but he was only important to Jack, while Jacob had brought everyone together and had been watching over the candidates for who knows how long.
May. 27th, 2011 08:32 pm (UTC)
I honestly think that the flash sideways was a mechanism solely of Jack's, because it mostly resolves his own issues (especially regarding his father) ughhhh.

I get why they didn't include either MiB or Jacob in the sideways, sinc ethey were sort of elements of the island mythology that would've digressed from the general relationshippy vibe of the sideways, but I think the sideways would have been way richer if they'd integrated the mythology a little more. I mean, it was an important element of the show, even if it frustrated everyone.

I didn't really mind the Jack parts of it, I just wish they would have handled the other characters better and have had less flash side ways (stuff that didn't contribute to the story arc, like Sawyer's whole cop fantasy life) and more of the Island sci-fi/fantasy part of story.

Great job! :)

I know BB!Jacob is so cute & baby in black too! The kids were adorable, too. ♥ Thank you Nikki Jo those are my favorites, too. :) Rage was fun to make and made me think that MiB = great Disney villain!
