Dan, Sweetie, you’re killing me here! I’m trying to keep my composure with this crush on you, only hanging on by a thin thread as it is, and then you SING A COVER OF BEHIND BLUE EYES? how can I not fall deeper after that?!

I’m back home after being in the hospital for five days. it really, REALLY sucked.
so imagine my delight when I open social media and see that not only has Dan done another BUILD series interview, wearing Doc Marten Union Jack boots
but also that he’s gotten an earring!
and what about last week’s Legion episode? I think it’s been my favorite one yet- all the different realities.
oddly enough, Legion is what grounds me in reality week by week; I know it’s Tuesday because that’s Legion night.
you make me happy when skies are grey…
The weather has been so crazy lately, like it can’t make up it’s mind if it wants to move on to Spring or stay Winter. The same could be said of my mood lately; I can’t seem to make up my mind what I want to focus on. I have multiple projects around the house that need attention but I can’t choose which one to devote myself to, so I do none of them. I feel in limbo at the moment. When I feel like this, I tend to fall back on the easy things that make me happy…
Legion, season 1. The second season of Legion is due April 3rd, so I did a rewatch of season one this past week. Binge watching the series is so much better than waiting week to week; Dan’s acting skills stand out more when you watch episodes back to back. Sweet vulnerable David, morphs into maniacal mutant and back again, in the blink of an eye. Once David harnesses his abilities though, he’s kicking ass and taking names! It’s a roller coaster ride that I hope will continue in season 2.
Dan’s Alice in Wonderland ‘playing card’ Docs. Appreciating Dan’s choice in shoes has become a fangirl experience in and of itself; his shoes need their own fanclub! each time new pictures of him come out, I giddily scroll down to look at his shoes. Will they be colorful? Will they be rugged? Will they be classy, casual, or sporty? Every time is a surprise.
And this one too:
Dan’s Instagram account. His photography is lovely and his captions are witty.
I enjoy the way his posts highlight his personality.
And although this hasn’t aired yet, I know I’ll love it too
When I was 7 years old, I sent away for a Nestle Quik Bunny drinking mug. the handles were bunny ears, it was awesome. I could imagine myself drinking chocolate milk out of it every night at dinner and not even complaining about how much I didn’t like milk. so I waited. and I waited. I went to the post office with my mom, and my dad, and my grandma and checked our box eagerly, hoping beyond hope that this time I would see the slip of paper inside that said we had a package. it seemed to take for-ev-er. finally the day came and I ripped into that package like a wild animal! I am happy to say, the mug was everything I hoped it would be. I drank out of it for years to come. both my kids drank out of it. sometimes I still drink out of it.
Waiting for the second season of Legion to air on FX is like that. I’m dying a slow death as I wait for it to start in April.
When I see or read little tidbits about what to expect in the new season, like Oliver and David having a dance off for control of David’s soul, it’s pleasure and pain in equal measure.
To make matters worse, the DVD of season one isn’t available to purchase in the US yet. can’t you take pity on me, FX network, and show a marathon or something?
It probably doesn’t help that every time I open my computer, I see this:
Followed by this:
And then this:
I adore David Haller, truly!
I’m very much looking forward to David opening himself up to the powerful Legion that is inside of him. even if that means he doesn’t always make heroic choices. the confusion, the struggle, the threat of corruption, it’s going to be fantastic!
Because David is awesome.
….my brother’s name is David, and adolescent me can not believe that the words David and Awesome just came out of my mouth at the same time.
For the record,
David Haller, as portrayed by Dan Stevens, is awesome.
okay. glad we got that straightened out.
