I’m Sensing a Theme…

Music & More challenge

29.) a role that makes you frown

could you be more specific? there are so many!



I frowned when Lucas was rejected by Elizabeta and then  jumped off a building.



I frowned when Guy was played by Marian and then stabbed by his conniving sister.

The Gisbornes: they take sibling rivalry to a whole other level

I frowned when Porter’s wife said they were all better off without him and then his head got chopped off.

she's all heart
she’s all heart

I’m sensing a theme here…


I frowned when Standring gave his all to Carol, without concrete results.



I frowned when Thornton proposed to Margaret, with chastisement as his reward.



& I will frown all over the place when I see Thorin next!


music question: a song that makes you sad

Traveling Soldier by the Dixie Chicks

This song is romantic, yet heartbreaking. A young man preparing to go to war, spends a few chaste hours with a sweet teenage waitress. He writes her letters from Vietnam, sharing all his hopes and fears. But then one night at the school football game she hears his name read off the list of local soldiers who wouldn’t be coming home.


Crying all alone under the stands
Was a piccolo player in the marching band
And one name read but nobody really cared
But a pretty little girl with a bow in her hair


stupid depressing questions…

  1. Don’t get me started! LOL!!! It makes me frown that his characters always seem to be attracted to women who reject him! Are they blind or just plain crazy? I guess it makes for an interesting story line, but really??? Rejection of RA is just not believable… not even in fiction. 😉

      1. It’s true, almost all his characters are star-crossed…. as you say, more fun for him but more exhausting for our feels! Speaking of that, what a wonderful but horrendous song…. somehow timeless. I love it, but not one I can listen to very often, just too sad.


        1. I love it too but it always gets me right in the gut :/ my dad was drafted when he was 19. my mom wrote him a letter every day. he was wounded but came home in one piece. so many others didn’t, if they came home at all. so yeah, it’s heartbreaking 😦 confession: I wrote a fanfiction of sorts based on this song a few years ago, just so I could give it a happy ending 😉

          1. Aww… now your parents have hit me in the feels too :”) And I appreciate so much the heart behind your fanfic, as in my own heart I think every soldier’s story deserves a happy ending.


          2. I just finished revisiting a fanfic from the Twilight fandom (an all human one) that took place in a military atmosphere, so I’m in that frame of mind 😉 it was about a career soldier who had just come home from his latest deployment. events happen and he ends up dating a widow with 4 boys (yikes!) whose father had been killed in Iraq. what made it different is that this man was confident enough in himself that he was able to not only honor the memory of the deceased husband/father but to embrace it with warmth as well, making it so much easier for the boys to accept him into their lives 🙂

          3. if anyone’s interested, here’s the link: https://www.fanfiction.net/s/6023650/1/The-Bigger-They-Are
            the only “Twilight” references it has are character names, nothing else, so you wouldn’t even know it was “Twilight” related if I didn’t tell you 😉 the title comes from the phrase “the bigger they are, the harder they fall”- it is a “Mature” rated story, but the title has nothing to do with that fact, so get your mind outta the gutta 🙄


  2. It’s a bad, bad theme! A trend he didn’t exactly make better with Proctor and don’t even get me started with Gary Fuller (bad enough he was a widower, they had to be separated at the time of her death? Why the double whammy?????) Dr. Scott White doesn’t exactly feel like he’s going to have a happily-ever-after either. That song may have caused a tissue shortage in our house. Sigh.

    1. I didn’t feel the sadness with Gary that I have with the other characters. I guess I just assumed since they were divorced, he hurt more for his boys than for some lost soul-mate or whatever. I am excited to see what Scott White’s story is though, it will be complicated no doubt 😎
