Circe Invidiosa (Jealous Circe), John William Waterhouse, 1892

Priestess of Delphi, John Collier, 1891

Anatol Knotek's piece is a great example of the power of perspective. From one angle the piece is unreadable, confusing; from another, it reads, “wrong”; from a third, “right.”

Stigma is often a problem of perspective. Remember that you may not always have the whole picture or may not be looking at something from the right angle. It is important to be aware of multiple perspectives in order to know what is real and true.

    
Anonymous : I've got to admit I always sorta (and by sorta I'm mean totally) shipped Olivia and Astrid and also Walter and Astrid and peter and Olivia, along with Olivia and altlivia in the end too I'm all over the place lol

I swear it’s like looking in a mirror.

I never quite shipped Olivia and Altlivia (I can def see it, though), but all the rest of those yep.  Yep.  Guilty as charged.

    
Anonymous : I didn't know you watched fringe?! I love Astrid too, it kills me how under used she was and how so many potentially interesting plots/characters would just be dropped. What did you think of the show overall though? I lived with people who hated Olivia so much and all was complained she was too stoic but I always loved her too.

I did!  I was SUPER INTO IT a few years back.  I even watched it on a real tv that’s how into it I was.  But yeah, that was why I worried no one would get that answer, because I really don’t reblog many Fringe things - not really by conscious choice, it’s just that no one on my dash reblogs Fringe stuff, and I don’t go looking for it on my own.

If there was one thing that was constantly frustrating to me about the show it was the fact that there wasn’t enough Astrid.  Jasika Nicole is such a talented and wonderful actress.  She made Astrid patient and kind and funny even though she was often given very little to work with, imho.  We got glimpses of the character but it was never nearly as much as the other main ~lab crew and that really steamed me.

Those people you lived with were wrong. I loved Olivia to bits because Olivia Dunham is a fantastic character. The scene where she breaks down in season 3 and starts throwing her sheets and clothes and things in the washing machine? It’s like a kick right in the fucking heart, EVERY TIME.  I tend to gravitate towards tragic characters, or characters with a lot of complexity and sadness, and Olivia hits all those buttons for me.

It’s weird how people can be so much more critical of a ~stoic character if she ~just happens to be a woman.  It’s not like Olivia didn’t have a sense of humor, or a passionate desire for justice, or gentleness for the victims she came across in her work, or fears and flaws and anger.

The show overall I would have a harder time commenting on.  I’m not a person who tends to really fixate on plot-weaving or that kind of thing. But I loved the characters (Olivia and Astrid, mainly, but also Peter and Walter) and some of the major plot threads were VERY enjoyable.  Seasons 2 and 3 were probably my favorites - that was a really great time for the show.

<3 Thank you for reminding me all over again of my love of the leading ladies of Fringe, dear anon.
