Notes/Warnings: Don’t run because Tomas is in here, lol. This is me using fic to deal with the gag-worthy fact that Blair is back with Tomas, as revealed in the GH crossover.

Summary: Tomas Delgado is finally free and Todd Manning is the one in handcuffs. So why does Tomas still feel like he's the one who lost? T&B, obviously. Spoilers for the finale and vague ones for the OLTL-GH crossover.

I CAN'T EVEN. It's hard to remember when you're watching old YT clips that were made from transfers from VHS tapes people dubbed in the 1990s JUST HOW GORGEOUS THIS MAN WAS.

Roger Howarth, circa 1995, ladies and gents. ALL OF THAT BEAUTIFUL HAIR, ZOMG.

Goddamn, my soap OTP were some gorgeous people back in the day. Not that they aren't gorgeous now. ;)

I'm just going to put this here for everyone to enjoy...

Notes/Warnings: No warnings. Set post-finale, pre-Port Charles
Summary: John McBain just wants to forget he ever heard of "Todd Manning," but Blair is making that very difficult for him as long as Todd is still behind bars. Valentine's Day 2012 what-if, set post-finale.

I don't have anything of import to post, I'm just tired of staring at the last chapter of my last fic whenever I hit my journal, so I'm bumping it down with this nonsensical post.

My birthday was a few weeks ago, an event met with ringing apathy aside from my coworkers. My landlord has finally agreed to fix my crumbling bathroom walls which I am cautiously excited about. The team comes on Thursday but I'm worried about how long it's going to take and if I'm going to have to shower someplace else for a few days. Yes, this is how boring my life is at the moment.

I saw Haywire and Shame this weekend with a friend of mine and I think they are both exactly what they promise on the package. I liked Haywire much more than I did Shame, but I was expecting that.

Friday the 13th was the last day of my soap, One Life to Live. It ended on a cliffhanger in true soap style, but not before my favorite couple (Todd and Blair, forever, people!) confessed their love for each (again) and had a big love scene (again). I kid with the parentheses because the show did a bang-up job with the dialogue of bringing their story full-circle after a 16-year love affair that has seen many highs and lows. The only downside was, of course, they were the ones affected by the cliffhanger as Todd was arrested for the murder of his twin brother seconds before the show was over. On the upside, they are supposed to be showing up on General Hospital next month for a short visit, so hopefully we'll get some closure there.

If you follow my tumblr, you know that this is basically been the focus of my attention for the last two weeks. It's partly because of the finale (SNIFF) and partly because I cannot write and therefore have nothing to do with my time but watch old soap opera clips on YT. I would rather be writing but that is just not happening, it seems. It's too bad I went out on such a low note.

On top of everything else, school is back in and I'm already behind. Why am I doing this again? XD

ETA: My favorite soap actress, Kassie DePaiva, who played Blair on OLTL, tweeted back at me this weekend! It was definitely the highlight, lol. HERE IS MY PROOF:

Summary: Blair remembers what it's like to feel like Starr does now. (~260 words)

this will always be my memory
;

She remembers.

As Blair watches Starr kneel at the hospital’s altar, as she watches her daughter bow her head and struggle to understand the latest hand Fate has dealt her — Cole, shot, maybe dying — Blair can barely hold back her own tears, her entire body shaking not just for her daughter’s pain that she shoulders with her, but from the force of the memories that consume her.

She knows how Starr feels, the grief that might wait around the corner of her; Blair remembers every torturous moment of the months she thought Todd was dead, lost to her forever, a wound that would’ve never healed, not if he hadn’t come back.

Somehow she’s forgotten it until that moment, forgotten those days when she would’ve traded anything to know that he was alive, no matter how much sorrow he might’ve brought with him, how she bowed her own head and thanked god for his return in those months afterward even when things had seemed impossible between them.

Somehow, Blair let herself forget that.

Blair staggers out of the hospital chapel to give Starr a few minutes alone with everything she must be feeling and she cannot stop her own grief, her own tears. She slumps against the wall, still shaking, fighting for control.

And then there are arms around her, warm and tender, echoes of promises in the careful way they hold her, comfort her.

Todd.

Blair makes her own promises to herself in that moment: she will never let herself forget again.

Please allow me to take a break from my XMFC fangirling to fangirl over my soap opera for a minute. Because Monday's episode was the best episode ever. Trufax!

If you've followed my rambling about OLTL for the last six months, you'd know my favorite actor playing one of my favorite characters involved in one of my favorite romances ever has returned to the show after 8 long years. On Monday, the original Todd Manning revealed himself to his family and kissed Blair within an inch of her life to prove he's the real Todd.

[FANGIRL SQUEEING OF EPIC PROPORTIONS GO HERE]

I fell in love with this couple in 1995; they've been apart since 2002. You guys do not understand how much awesome this is for me.

Here's a video to help you with that:



And it wasn't just the actual kiss, it was the dialogue. When she first sees him, she whispers, "Where have you been?" because she instantly knows that this is the real Todd Manning, this is the man who made her the happiest she's ever been.

"You know me," he tells her.

"I don't know," Blair says and his heart breaks because she's not sure.

And then after Todd kisses her, he has the best FUCKING LINE EVER: I dare you to ever forget me. I dare you.

Holy hell, people, I melted right away. Don't be surprised if that line shows up in one of my fics. BECAUSE IT'S AWESOME. I can only hope this means that I will get a true reconciliation for these two before the show ends. I HOPE AND PRAY TO THE SOAP GODS EVERY NIGHT.

And now back to my regularly scheduled fangirling. ;)
