I can’t decide if I love or hate myself for writing it, either, tbh. but I give you hugs and kisses and cuddles to help you through your pain :* because it does mean the world to me that you’re at least (positively?) messaging me about this
“Well, the world has changed so radically, and we’re all running to catch up. I don’t want to jump to any conclusions, but look: Dinosaurs and man, two species separated by sixty-five million years of evolution have just been suddenly thrown back into the mix together. How can we possibly have the slightest idea what to expect?”
eh, it’s okay. I don’t really like using the Titanic storyline for Titanic fics. and I don’t really write bp!Kurt, soooo. but it’s interesting enough
exactly. it was buoyant, yes, but it could have in no way fit two fully-grown people on it. like with just Rose on it it was submerged slightly underwater. they both wouldn’t have been directly in the water, but they both would still be sitting in a good few inches of it
oooooh boy okay this is getting posted because there is seriously nothing that pisses me off more than when people say things like this.
okay, besides the fact that, yes, it was proven that both of them could have fit, one, both had already been submerged for some time in below-freezing water. they’re going to be shaking and their bodies are already going to be slightly more lethargic than if the water had been warmer. getting both of them situated would have taken some time, and two, that they both would have been submerged slightly under the water, thus effectively ruining their makeshift life raft. Jack just wanted Rose to be safe, and it it meant sacrificing himself, then so be it. there’s also the fact that this movie is about the sinking of the Titanic, where over half of its passengers and most of its crew perished. James Cameron has said himself that it would have been a disgrace to the memory of the people who lost their lives by having a happy ending. would Titanic have been such a hit at the box office if Rose and Jack walked away? no.
there’s also the fact that IT IS NOT A DOOR. none of the doors on the Titanic looked like that. what Rose floats on was modeled after an actual artifact found at the site of the sinking, and it was a piece of carved paneling around a first-class doorway that had ripped off.
YOU’RE GONNA GET OUT OF HERE, YOU’RE GONNA GO ON AND MAKE LOTS OF BABIES, AND YOU’RE GONNA WATCH THEM GROW. YOU’RE GONNA DIE AN OLD LADY WARM IN HER BED, BUT NOT HERE, NOT THIS NIGHT, NOT LIKE THIS, DO YOU UNDERSTAND ME? WINNING THAT TICKET, ROSE, WAS THE BEST THING THAT EVER HAPPENED TO ME—IT BROUGHT ME TO YOU. AND I’M THANKFUL FOR THAT, ROSE. I’M THANKFUL. YOU MUST DO ME THIS HONOR, ROSE. PROMISE ME YOU’LL SURVIVE. THAT YOU WON’T GIVE UP, NO MATTER WHAT HAPPENS, NO MATTER HOW HOPELESS. PROMISE ME NOW, ROSE, AND NEVER LET GO OF THAT PROMISE
Favorite Titanic scenes: “So, you wanna go to a real part?”
