What light. So breaks. Such east. Very sun. Wow, Juliet.
this breaking bad hiatus is unbearable
Haven’t any of you ever had a dream?
For me this was that one moment of relief in the story. Ellie is clearly suffering from some form of post-traumatic stress after her near-death encounter with David. Joel is trying (and failing) to re-connect with her. It’s always go go go go, all the happiness has been sucked out of the world. At previous times Ellie would try and bring that good back and Joel simply dismisses or brushes it off with a “stay focused.” Everyone you meet is on edge, pissed off, tired, or out to kill you. So in this one moment. This one scene. You could just take a breath and appreciate the good that IS out there. And it comes at such an emotional peak. This is my favorite moment in the game easily. And what a game it is.
#the last of us #not over it never over it #an entire world carved out of trauma #this is all just a game about trauma that’s all it’s ever been about #what it does what it looks like how it carries over how it carries the day #what you can do with it what you can do against it what you’ll do because of it #trauma as identity
