"Through The Looking Glass" Sequel to "Mirror, Mirror"

.......Still standing here in front of the looking glass. As I continue to stare intensely at my image, I see all of my 30 years dancing around me. I find myself contemplating my fate more often now. I realize that my senses are not what they used to be. This frightens me so.

I still feel alone, but then suddenly I sense something on my shoulder. I turn to see a man smiling at me. He is tall and handsome. He has a cigarette in other hand.

You have me. That's all you need. Isn't that enough?

I think to myself, no it's not enough.

I still want more. I look back into the mirror. I see myself at age 18. Still lost and so unsure of myself. So much uncertainty. I place a hand on the glass, then ripples appeared. Everything becomes distorted for a moment.

You have me. That's all you need. Isn't that enough?
He says to me again.

Everything is not the same. I realize then that I am not the same as I used to be. I turn to him. His eyes welled up with tears.

Yes, you are enough. Always have, always will be.

I reach out to him. He opens his arms and pulls me into him. I inhale his sweet smell. So masculine, so serene all at once. I smile and say,
Yes, you are enough. Always have, always will be.

The looking glass shatters behind me. All there's left are pieces of the past. A past that I can now let go. I have found my salvation. My safe haven.

The past is the past. I fight for the now. I fight for the future.

Yes, I found my salvation. My safe haven.

Scandal Season 7 Review...the deconstruction of Olivia Pope

Olivia Pope portrayed by Kerry Washington. Hi friends, I know it has been some time since I covered Scandal and I apologize. I have been watching multiple shows all at once, so it has been hard for me to get my reviews together. With that being said, I have a major gripe with the seventh and last season of Scandal. I want to start off by saying..."Where is Olivia and what the hell happened to her?!" As a viewer of the show since its first season, I have seen a lot of changes happen. From the departure of OPA alum Stephen at the end of season 1, Columbus Short's publicized departure from the show at the end of season 3, the death of James (which makes me still hate Jake) and so on. But this season has Liv as the head of B613 (Command) and she is quickly becoming the stuff that nightmares are made of. Liv has now taken to tactics that her father, Rowan would do when he was the head of the organization. But seriously, what happened to the lady in the white hat? Wher…

#30 Day Shipping Challenge: Day 2: What was your first ship?

Over the years, I have been fans of many ships. But, no ship has got me in my feelings as much as Buffy and Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer (Angel). Buffy and Angel was my first ever ship. From the moment that they meet outside the Bronze to the moment after the fight with the mayor, Angel and Buff stare at each other from a distance as he turns to leave (Angel goes off to L.A. to have his spin-off series.) The ‘Bangel’ ship was the first tv couple that I had ever written fanfiction on. I don’t know, at 16 years old, they were thee ‘it’ couple...despite the fact that he was a 200 something year old vampire and she was a teenage girl groomed to be the Slayer (on paper this pairing is sooo not legal). But their relationship made for such interesting drama. Especially, after Angel turns into Angelus (Angel without a soul) after he and Buffy consummate their relationship. Things are never the same with these two, especially when Angelus begins to torture Buffy and the Scooby Ga…
