|OMG OMG MY HALL & OATES T-SHIRT!!!!!|
|True believers Tessa and Kate worship at the Church of Hall & Oates.|
Hey Tessa - favorite music?:
|"OMG, this is so embarrassing. I don't even|
know the answer to that right now."
|Scott: "Hall and Oates"?|
Tessa: "What am I into?"
|We keep our lives separate, separate separately.|
We are very different people. Totally.
Separate people. Who live separately.
|They don't even know how much|
they're going to miss each other
when this is all over and they go their
separate ways even more than they go
their separate ways now.

Often they don't connect on the ice.

But I don't know for sure cause
I don't know him that well.

P.S. - Hey Scott. Who did your eyebrows?
|Oh those ill at ease, awkward silences when Tessa tries to reach across the gap,|
and Scott is just embarrassed for her. And a little bit pitying.
Sorry, my bad.
Also want to briefly revisit this:
Yes, we know what this means, ignore it. It's a set up, he's gay, he's a relative, he's a random, he's a charity case, he's the actual boyfriend, he's someone else's boyfriend, he's an in-law or co-worker. We can't know, we only know past is precedent, and the natural assumptions don't apply. Just wait for the other shoe.
But I'm going to go to the face value interpretation just for fun. To imagine, as a wish fulfillment exercise, a scenario where coSaundra was over it before Sochi, went to Sochi, and afterwards announced she was finished with the whole thing, and then relieved her pent-up feelings by slapping up a picture of herself and her boyfriend. (The lines of their faces, the expression in their eyes and their smiles, and everything else between them in this image is congruent and in sync). A boyfriend who resembles Charlie White way more than Scott. Finally prove to everybody that her situation wasn't really as pathetic, grasping and desperate as it registered during her entire tour of duty as the official girlfriend (which she still may be).
The odd part is she'd be sending the message to "us". The ones who were scammed; the stupid public. Why would she even bother. The VM fandom gets so many mixed messages:
"You suck and you're stupid - we've erected a fortress of lies!"
"Hey - wake up! Where are you going? Look at our fortress of lies!"
And then - "Hey - moment of your time. We'd like to share a few liner notes vis a vis our p.r. output just concluded; a few editorial commments and asides. We want to walk some things back and re-set for the next round, without really saying that's what we're doing."
"Look at our latest fortress of lies!"
For some reason we are the ones they lie to, but also the ones they preen themselves in front of, show off in front of, weep in front of, and try to set straight. I don't actually get that.
And also maybe the profile pic wants to tell us that her real boyfriend is cute, actually likes her, and, btw, doesn't take an entire summer to generate facial hair. A girl can only take so much.
IOW, the fantasy here is this is her move, not Moirville's move.
I don't think so, but that would be the most dramatic, soap opera scenario that actually scanned. People don't tend to really act with such a straight line from A to B, though.
