Because of Amelia, Helena went to the church and Sarah to the state; because of Amelia, Rachel went to the corporation. All three were assimilated not into families like Alison or Cosima but into groups, into systems, and the relationship between individual and system is one that Orphan Black loves to explore. Because of this choice, OB is mobilizing Sarah, Helena, and Rachel into the three most important clone pillars this season, as the mystery unravels. They are thematically representative, narratively connected, and poised for conflict. More so than the others, they act not only of their individual will but also as a result of their contextual upbringing. - Orphan Black 2.04, “Governed As It Were By Chance”
just one mistake
is all it will take
we’ll go down in history
remember me for centuries
"Where television is fantastic, and is way ahead of film, is it doesn’t feel the need to polarize women so much. Male writers often wanna make a woman either the angel or the whore. Make her the witch or put her on a pedestal. They’re not mutually exclusive. You don’t have to be practical, politically savvy, and not be a good person. You can be a good human being and be shrewd. They’re not two separate things. We are as complex and contradictory as the men." - Natalie Dormer
favorite character meme - [6/6] quotes
"I’m beyond tired. I’m beyond scared. I’m standing on the mouth of hell and it is gonna swallow me whole. And it’ll choke on me. We’re not ready? They’re not ready. They think we’re gonna wait for the end to come, like we always do. I’m done waiting. They want an apocalypse? Well, we’ll give ‘em one. Anyone else who wants to run, do it now, ‘cause we just became an army. We just declared war. From now on we won’t just face our worst fears, we will seek them out. We will find them and cut out their hearts one by one until the First shows itself for what it really is. And I’ll kill it myself. There is only one thing on this earth more powerful than evil, and that’s us. Any questions?"
The truth is a matter of circumstances, it’s not all things to all people all the time. And neither am I.
But if I know you, I know what you’ll do. You’ll love me at once, the way you did once upon a dream.
