The best laid plans...

So, there are all the notes I made, oodles and oodles of ideas of projects, research, filed trips, books, theatre, paintngs, things to kind start the curiousity and the journey through biology, forensic chemistry, art, literature, poetry, history, RE, geography, philosophy, social science and PD, and maybe it still stand, all these plans for the home education around Lewis, but
[Spoiler (click to open)]bk: good job I'm not normal, you know, neural typical, because if I was, I would be crying and crying and crying. It doesn't make sense. and I always thought Innocent and Hobson were together, her reaction was worse than James.

me: long rambling chat on multiverse, diversion and Cold Summer onwards was written for her and starts at the end of season 4 and that won't change. After a while, sort of hopeful considering the finacial mess we're in - 'So, shall I cancel the amazon pre-order on the season 7 boxset?'

bk: no! We have all the others. We must get them all. It is all pattern.

me: but you won't watch!

bk: I will fast forward and will pretend it doesn't happen. And the end bit with Gray was so sweet, can you write me a back story?

me: with Morse. of course.


So, even more stuff to write with no time and health, on top of the back stories and the new bedtime verbal one going on and the mo - omegaverse, mpreg! And not even a penny saved :(

And I seriously, seriously hope that the 'Lewis project' stands, as once the Winter one is finished it should take us all the way to the end of the year!

The joys of children, throwing carefully made plans into disarray!
Like when they suddenly decide they are too old for something they loved before and then, as older teenagers, they rediscover it.

But it does show a certain maturity and tenacity to decide continue watching but ignore something you do not like. Supposedly mature adults often throw their hands in the air and refuse to watch a programme when it takes a turn they dislike. And it means you can continue with the HE stuff.

They do indeed, it's called being a child, isn't it? ;)

I'm inclined to think some of the stop liking it and the rediscovering it is partly peer pressure to 'grow up' and 'not act like a little kid' and BK will be immune. Already, things that she had forgotten or ignored since half way through Y7 have now, in the last few days, been played with/built/used :)

I think the Lewis project is good to go, but we're determined to finish the Winter project, however late, as we began it in Y6 originally and were both doing well, when the SS came with all their threats and it was forgotten. We feel we will be finally free of those awful two years is it is completed. *fingers crossed*

I think pandabob's little ficlet is a good way of looking at it
I mean, the whole pub scene at the end of the episode looked unbelievably like Robbie and Laura were taking the piss out of Innocent (and possibly James? That was less clear...)

It looked completely staged, and the ending with them walking off together even more so. Seriously, Laura playing the 'little woman', hanging on to Lewis' arm with dreamy eyes? No, it just looked weird and completely out-of-character for her: not their getting together, they are both lovely and clearly fond of each other, have been since their Morse days, but them putting on a PDA show? Deliberately? In public? In a pub?!

I don't buy it for a minute. And I think it will be quite easy to completely ignore it going forward.

You are right. And yes it is, pandabob has done a wonderful job for my daughter, and so quickly :)

It depends on how the final story goes in terms of ignoring it or inventing our own pocket universes. I doubt James would contemplate tolerating Laura as Robbie's full time 'beard' and I can't counter her agreeing either!

Re: I think pandabob's little ficlet is a good way of looking at it
Yes, I am hoping the third episode will entirely ignore the whole thing. So many things in that episode are completely out-of-character... Just thinking about the bicycle ride double-entendre is making me wince. Seriously, I can see Laura joking like that because she's perky and very modern, but I cannot see steady and curiously conventional Lewis getting it in a million years. He always used to miss Morse's dirty hints by miles.

And not recognizing in DC Gray a boy formerly involved in one of his cases? I just can't buy it: Lewis would have recognized him because Robbie actually pays attention and cares about innocent witnesses and anyone who is only peripherally involved in his cases. I mean, DC Gray is apparently just like an older Declan (from Counter Culture Blues, episode 4 of season 3). Can you imagine Lewis not recognizing Declan if he joined up the force ten years later? And based on how young DC Gray is, it cannot have been much more than ten years...

No, there are too many sloppy, inconsistencies in that episode (and don't get me started on the main plot which has so many holes I cannot make any sense of it. I'd be here all day - I have pages of questions about the inconsistencies in the whole mess... )

Seriously, would the Lewis we know have forgotten such a kid to whom he spoke in such circumstances, even years ago? I can't believe it. Lewis, who is so good at police procedures he writes down everything in his little notebooks? Are we talking about the same person we have known for 20+ years?

You have confused me. When you wrote "It doesn't make sense. and I always thought Innocent and Hobson were together, her reaction was worse than James," is the first I BK speaking and does the "her reaction" also refer to BK's reaction? Or is BK saying she thought Hobsons' (or Innocents'?) reaction to something on screen was less than James' reaction to it?

I haven't seen the episode yet and won't until it airs in the Detroit area. Which hopefully won't be months & months but wouldn't surprise me if it were. I love Hobson as a character and I want her happy, but not at the expense of James (who I am convinced utterly worships his gov).

sorry for confusing you :(

It was BK speaking, and she meant that Innocent's reaction was worst than James' in terms on something on screen that happened in front of them.

We love Hobson too, and without giving any spoilers - after all this is only our opinion - the writing took her out of character!

I hope you don't have to wait too long to see it in the Detroit area. That's the original Motown, right? You did know that along with the dreaming spires and medieval colleges Oxford is our original motown - the site of the Morris motor company, the first manufactoured car factory in Britain. We still have a huge carworks - not Morris Oxfords and Minors anymore, but BMW Minis :)

Not only does James worship his guv, but LF worships KW, he's said so, in several interview - 'loves him with all his heart' apparently :)

Sooooo behind on watching Lewis, haven't even seen the previous series *cry*

I found a little free time though and because I'm still stuck plotwise, I thought it was time to do some fun with BK's Hathaway!Britney Spears request. Should be finished by next Friday :)

You're not missing much, sadly.

It's awesome! Seen the finished artwork now and BK loves it! and garryowens/dogpoet offering to write a fic, maybe. So excited :) xoxo
