[ part 1 ]
I love how this scene isn’t even about the different theories. ^_^
By the time Dorian has finished speaking he knows the actual content of his speech is irrelevant because what they’re really saying to each other is:
Dorian: imma keep going right to the end of my sentence because you paid me the compliment of asking me to continue but I can tell the wall-of-sound effect is grating on you man
John: well done for keeping up the pretence thanks for helping me get through this THE LORD IS TESTING ME
It’s interesting that the face Dorian pulls in #1 is the same face he pulled after he punched Det. Paul - eg. like he’s pained by what he’s just done.
[ In this case I reckon he’s worried that by participating in the robot-wars he’s inadvertently contributing to John blowing his top. ]
But I actually think John had his temper under control and wasn’t going to shoot the MX at that point (from the way he nods and clenches his jaw, like the worst is over.)
Because up until that point, Dorian hadn’t betrayed any actual hurt from what the MX was saying…
But then he does that look -- that little hurt look when the MX refers to him as a "retired old system" — and not even calm, cool, super-tolerant Dorian can hide the fact that the insult has hit home…
AND THAT’S WHAT CLINCHES IT FOR JOHN (!!) >_<
[ you can see the precise moment at which he snaps, too — it’s on the words “appropriately cancelled” — probably because they could so easily have referred to himself! ]
And the way he pulls out his gun it’s like it’s inevitable, like "well shit now I have to shoot the sucker." But he also shoots a sad look at Dorian like "sorry man I know you don’t like conflict but we just can’t have this can we?"
So while I know we’re supposed to be bemoaning the weird double-standard of Dorian being treated like a person when MXs are treated like garbage…
BUT I JUST REALLY FRICKIN’ LOVE THIS SCENE, OKAY??
Better than a human leg?
Throughout the readalong there may be events that are time sensitive so I was wondering if you could all reblog this post telling me what time zone you are in so that I can figure out when the best time to post is. (If you are curious I am part of the Pacific time zone.) Thanks!
