Because, okay, I really cannot stop thinking about it basically and I've watched it, idk, 6 or 7 times now? So here is the breakdown analysis that I keyboard smashed at dearest Loz in a massive DW comment.

Usual meta stuff applies: this is just my opinion and stuff and as terrifyingly good as I appear to be at figuring out what Tobias Menzies is doing with his acting I'm not actually him and can't truly speak to what his motivations are.

(But I think I'm pretty fucking close, all the same. :D)

Under a cut to avoid spoils for 1x06.

BASICALLY I HAVE LOT OF FEELS OKAY? )

It's amazing. I just. Tobias and Sam are so brilliant. There's so many layers in the scene. I mean, most of that hideous flailing up there came from the first viewing (where I was literally chin handing in my astonishment) and some of the closeness of it came from the repeated viewings.

In conclusion, folk that didn't watch Eternal Law: go look at these gifs and then go and race through the episodes so you can actually see the scene in action. Because the evens I cannot are incapable of being textually rendered.

ETA: I've got a million fic ideas (lies, it's much less than that) but the one I'm choosing to work on next is karaoke themed. I have chosen the best song for Tom. No-one will ever convince me that it is not the song he sings every time the office drags the angel lawyers to a party. Every. Time. (Amongst other ideas: a 40s thing that, if I say so myself, is going to be amazing. A story where Richard doesn't have the best of days post 1x06. A Mrs S. smackdown on Richard after his appalling behaviour towards her. A 5+1 I've been working on since the start of the show which accidentally turned into the story of how Richard Pembroke Came To Be.)
