episode 2  
Picspam, yes, but only of the parts that I liked which means NO SOPHIA-RELATED SCENES AND LOTS OF NAOMILY. I will, of course, talk about Sophia a bit, but only as much as I can handle because I don't want to think about the bad stuff unless I really have to.

Hello immediate moped fluff, I love you. Did you see Kat's ass? Did you see it? I can't get over how fucking fantastic it is. Also, the fact that they were playing The Temper Trap's "Sweet Disposition" during a naked scene is like the best thing ever. And Emily in that coat, hhnnnggg. AND THEN THOSE KILLER GOGGLES and the school girls. "Morning Jenna, you're looking very beautiful today." NAOMI ♥ And then the Naomible and the school kiss, fucking gorgeous. Even though I'm already starting to get a big angry at Naomi at this point, her clutching Emily's hand under the table was like the sweetest thing ever.

Kathryn Prescott is fucking beautiful. The lighting when she was in Sophia's room, even though I didn't like Emily snooping about I really had to appreciate the scene because it was gorgeous. Then the coloring on the pitch scene just blew me away. Seriously, I miss Kat with red hair. The color is fucking mint, I can't get over it. 'SCUSE ME WHILE I SKIP THE CREEPY LOCKER SHRINE SCENE AND GET TO THE SEX.

This was hot, short, but hot and there was giggling and tights and back muscles HHHNNNGGG. I have a thing for back muscles alright. Now I've told you, ok? Now you know. And then that bit, I know you know the one, WITH THE LACK OF SPACE BETWEEN CROTCHES AND THIGHS. Ridiculously hot.

I love the Fitch's always having such important conversations at the dinner table. WHY IS KATIE'S NEW BOYFRIEND LIKE 30 YEARS OLD???!?!?! K-Fitch, why? "He's an arse licker, that's what he is."

James: Is Naomi coming?
Jenna: No Naomi couldn't make it.
James: Aw, I wanted to show her my new number.
Jenna: Stop calling it a number.
James: A lot of boys become very curious in women's clothing once they approach pub-erty.

♥ James. LET'S GET FITCHED, oh Katie, supporting your mum, who's the arse licker now? Poor Papa Fitch, guh, STFU JENNA, nobody likes you ... except Katie, kind of.

Emily: Don't you get it? I want Naomi.
James: I want to fuck Naomi. What? I do, get over it.
Jenna: Rob?!? Did you just hear what he said?
Rob: She is attractive, love.
Jenna: FUCK ROB, he said fuck.


Then twin-fight! "I am concerned, BITCH!" Katie, I love you, I really do. And then the twin-speak. ♥ I can't wait for Katie's episode. She really needs to go back to being pasty though, I can't handle her skin tone; it makes me uncomfortable. Jenna Fitch is a right bitch (rhymesss) but it's kind of sad that Emily hates her so much. I can see she's actually really torn up about how Emily feels about her. :(

You can be my pajamas.

And then mustachioed Mexican tequila party for two: FULL OF STACHE2STACHE KISSES, SOMBREROS, PONCHOS, FIRE, AND PINATAS. So cute. Then, I think maybe my favorite part of the whole episode: drunken Naomi slurring her words, holding Emily's hand and re-naming her place "ours".


I guess now I can discuss the srs bsns happenings, put the fluff aside for a bit. I figured there would be Naomily drama, knew it was going to happen but I thought it was just along the lines of Emily getting angry at Naomi for selling drugs. I just figured it would be something more superficial, I didn't think they'd have Naomi cheat. Skins is really good at breaking up couples by way of a cheat, makes teenagers seem a lot more devious and horny than most of them are BUT WHATEVER, IT'S TELEVISION, THEY EXAGGERATE.

I didn't really know what to think when Emily was looking through Sophia's book. My heart clenched, that's for sure, but my eyes didn't well up, I just felt completely betrayed. I looked at Emily and I just didn't understand how Naomi could have done that to her, but now I understand. Emily plans, she idealizes. Emily is overwhelming in about every single sense of the word. And Naomi, Naomi just can't handle it all. She's used to being on her own, fending for herself. She's gotten accustomed to closing herself off to the world and letting Emily in was probably the hardest thing she's ever had to do emotionally. I'd have preferred if there had been no cheating at all, had there just been a girl that Naomi had been talking to. As far as I'm concerned Sophia and Naomi only kissed; I think it was implied that they did more but I don't think Naomi could do that.

Right now I'm just hoping that the Skins writers have come up with the best possible course of action for Naomi to make this up to Emily. As much as I do want to hate Naomi for what she's done, I just love her so much that I can't help but feel for her. ♥

The Cook/Naomi kiss I'm actually not all that angry about. We know that Naomi is not attracted to Cook so I think the kiss is more of a comforting action. Nobody cares about the Cookie Monster so I'm glad Naomi's taken it upon herself to be his caretaker, even if it means kissing someone that is not Emily. I've always thought that Cook, Naomi, and Effy would be the penultimate friend triangle so if that's where this little kiss is headed I'll be very happy.

My crying didn't start 'til the very end when I saw the note on the door; I really could've used some of this.

Papa Fitch is the best. Oh also, my crying took place with background music; song of choice: "First Floor People" by Barcelona. I had been listening to it on repeat and I needed to muffle my crying so I put on the song and once I was coherent enough to listen to the lyrics I decided that, if Naomi had had background music when she was crying, this song would have been perfect.

This hole is deeper by the hour
My hands are bleeding I spin around
You’re nowhere
I’ll throw away my ugly plans
They’re too tired to push me anywhere but down

So who am I to fool now if you’re gone, you’re gone?
When I am found below the ground
I’m searching, I’m desperate

First Floor People in case anyone likes it enough to want it.
Please Don't Go also by Barcelona, this song I think could a song for Naomi or Emily.

I wrote a lot. :)

i'm so glad people are coming around to seeing what happened, and seeing the point of view from naomi's perspective. i think it's important to understand it because many people can feel betrayed by her actions (i still feel like i got dumped last night) and ask themselves why anybody would do that, but they might some day find themselves in the exact same position as naomi. we can't really judge, we're all only human. i still stand by my whole belief that when most people face true, intense emotion like that, ESPECIALLY love... they can't handle it. to really give in to love is losing control. it's about trust both in yourself and in the person you're with. some people don't have that. and sometimes it becomes so much easier to shut yourself off from it all, and take the easy way out. i'm not saying it's right, it's just easier. it's a true testament to those of us who are courageous enough to face our emotions and power through them.

also any episode that incorporates dinosaur jr is the best. fucking. episode. ever.

Look at you, spinning all this out in a matter of minutes, I love it when you write extensively. :)

I'm kind of mad at myself for overreacting as much as I did, even though I'm sure I held my head at a decent level most of last night post-cry. Naomi is still my favorite character so it was kind of necessary that I put myself in her shoes. As soon as I did I felt much better about the situation, okay well not better but I understood so much more, was less confused. I completely agree that most people can't handle intense emotion, especially love in Naomi's case, on a first run. It's something you've got to get used to, something you've got to let grow; I'm sure it'd be fantastic if you could latch onto it first try, first hint, but that's just not how it works.

lol that would be fucking epic

oh I saw Kat's ass. Oh I saw it ♥

I'd have preferred if there had been no cheating at all, had there just been a girl that Naomi had been talking to. As far as I'm concerned Sophia and Naomi only kissed; I think it was implied that they did more but I don't think Naomi could do that

This could be my thoughts.

Asssss. ♥

I'm glad you agree with me on Naomi and Sophia, I'm just going to believe this unless told otherwise.

There is nothing I don't love about this picspam or your thoughts about this episode.

While still disappointing and awful, I think they can finally slow down and genuinely address their relationship issues now, which is better than letting their problems accumulate as they likely would have otherwise. Things will get fixed from this point on, I'm sure of it. I just can't wait to see how it progresses from here.

Agreed with Jade - this was the best episode ever. Making me think and feel, I mean, what's that all about?
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on February 6th, 2010 01:05 am (UTC)
See I'm really looking forward to having the girls properly address their issues but since Naomi doesn't have her own episode this series I don't know when exactly everything'll be worked out. I'm hoping that maybe they'll build a little bit in Cook's episode and maybe in Katie's too, otherwise I don't really think we'll be seeing a lot of their progress. It'll probably just be mostly implied.
[identity profile] arachnospores.livejournal.com on February 6th, 2010 01:21 am (UTC)
I think we'll see tidbits of progress throughout since it does seem there's more mixing and mingling within their group, but Cook's and Katie's eps do seem the most likely to have stuff going on for them.

You know, I could have sworn it was said at some point they had would have bigger roles to play this time around - but it doesn't seem so far like it will be, especially without a Naomi episode.
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on February 6th, 2010 01:29 am (UTC)
I guess it might be like bigger roles as attached to the group, if that makes sense? Like Emily and Naomi's relationship with Cook and then Naomi and Effy's relationship. Maybe the two of them will just act as solid backbones for some of the more emotionally weak characters.

Hi! I stumbled upon this lj by accident, but I just have to say how much I agree about Barcelona with you. The whole album could be a legit N/E soundtrack now. It makes me so sad, but I love it!

And awesome picspam BTW!
Emma[identity profile] falsealarm715.livejournal.com on February 9th, 2010 11:12 pm (UTC)

like srsly, i could definitely fit so many of their songs to Naomily, it's spectacular

glad you like the picspam :)
