what are your thoughts on caitriona’s oscars appearance?

From the minute she posted the story with the Oscars invitation it was evident that the past week was something that Caitriona has actively wanted and worked hard for. She was so excited she shared details. The literal envelope… and boy has she pushed the envelope. But at what cost? At what personal cost?

The saying be careful of what you wish for must be resonating so strongly right now for Caitriona. It seems that the dream to walk the red carpet and be in the audience at the Academy Awards has been realised. The price for admission to the pinnacle of awards week is evident. Caitriona looked beautiful, but cold. Her joy was hollow. There was none of the warmth and light in her eyes. There was no support for her nearby. He hid. And lurked as he always does.

The passive aggressiveness of this man is something to behold. He doesn’t give her the respect of seeming interested in her, AT ALL.

This was work for Caitriona. To be seen at the Oscars, to network. The Oscars are all about fashion and grooming. Looking your absolute best. For both men and women. But not for the PA. No!

This was a man who didn’t even wash his hair! Who did not think wearing the regulation tux was worth it. A man who makes it very clear that everything to do with Caitriona’s professional life is a chore.

But then again I suppose you get what you pay for. Second rate, second best. He clearly wasn’t able to negotiate a better contract, because as we have seen his professional life is littered with failure.

I know that the Oscars are tonight and everyone’s focused on that right now, so I’ll probably repost/reblog/retweet after the hubub dies down, but here’s this if you want something to read during commercial break or during best documentary. PSA: mAjoR NSFW in the second half.

Chapter Sixteen: Here’s Looking At You 

Claire

For once, Jamie’s bright red hair doesn’t stand out, caught up in the blaze of the sunset. The view from this spot is stunning — breathtaking, even — with the sparkle of the fading sunlight on that big blue ocean. And yet, I can’t take my eyes off Jamie.

For several minutes, I’ve been standing here on the edge of this boardwalk. Frozen in place. Two beer bottles are clutched in my hands, with condensation beginning to trickle down into the grooves of my palms.

Tipping my head back to point my closed eyes at the sky, I let out a deep breath. It’s a futile exercise, trying to keep myself calm. I know damn well that the second I get close to that man, my whole body will react. Just like it always does.

It’s been a week now, and to say that Jamie has been accommodating would be a gross understatement. He takes me to work every morning and brings me back home every night. He never pushes me, never asks for more than I can give him. I never invite him in, and he never follows me through the front door, even though I can tell he wants to. I know Jamie well enough to know when he’s holding something back. I can see that familiar fire in his eyes every time he looks at me.
