Delphine Cormier: Nature Under Constraint and Vexed
Auuuuugh, I probably won’t get around to it until Orphan Black is done and/or my writer’s block kicks my teeth down my throat, at this rate. But it is def on my list. High on my list. And also on my DVD shelf.
Oh wow, don’t put yourself into a coma for fic, please. But seriously, this is high praise, and I am grinning. Thank you, and enjoy your night as well!

This is what writing looks like, right?

Anonymous asked you:Cosima when she finds out that Delphine gave Leekie the blood sample! Please! That would be wonderful! :)
This makes pretty solid sense to me. Which is sort of sad for Angie…except, since she annoys me so often, I don’t feel all THAT bad for her. :p
Nope, I’ve been at work all day. But I will def check it out when I get home. :) I’m sure it’s excellent.
I think Delphine is two parts ambition, one part yes, I am puppy, love me. I think ambition is a powerful, powerful motivator. That said, ever since that moment (and the one in the car, where he told her to do whatever was necessary), we haven’t really seen a recurrence of the sexual aspect of their relationship, whatever it may have been. I believe Delphine threw herself into Cosima, and therefore cut whatever situation she had with Leekie off. She speaks to him curtly now, and with perceptible disgust. “Congratulations, I’m invested.” If they were sleeping together (for her ambition, or for any other reason), I don’t think they are anymore. Which doesn’t really minimize the woah, gross factor of them in that hotel room, but it does sort of improve things now. In my mind.
(I also sort of have this sense that the hotel room scene, from a writing perspective, had a lot to do with shock value. I don’t know that it was ever meant to be a definitive character moment as much as that surprise! thing. But that’s just my read on it.)
I knooooow. I love that little quote from Evelyne, about her making a statement. I love that Delphine doesn’t care about the opinions of her peers. (It is possible, of course, that Delphine’s primary goal is Cosima’s trust, and therefore she will do anything at all to win and sustain that trust, but shhhhh, we’re going with the human side here.) I love Delphine. The end.
Dude, Kira’s being ransomed or some shit by a creeper with big hands and terrible taste in barrettes. Of course I’m upset! (But, more seriously, I have a singular averse response to unknown kidnapper guy + young child, always. I do believe Kira will be fine, in the long run, because she is Kira—but that doesn’t diminish my visceral response to her situation. Much like when she was struck by the car.)
