Oh, okay, wow so this quote is basically amazing and here’s why:
“The whole sad point is nobody would notice if I died.” That’s it. That’s Sarah and what she thinks of herself at the beginning of the show. No one would notice. That’s why she left [insert fictional city name] at the drop of a hat - she thought so little of herself that she figured leaving wouldn’t affect anyone. And, I suspect, she went with Vic because she thought he was the only one who did care, and put up with a lot of his shit because of this belief.
But people did notice, a fact that comes crashing back down on Sarah when she sees Felix, Kira, and Mrs S again. She’s cast herself as a loner, but she does have people who love and care about her, and it’s in incurring the wrath of their anger/hurt/disappointment that she finally starts to figure this out. Her existence does matter, it is unique to the universe and there are people out there who would notice if she disappeared.
AND THEN. AND. THEN. (this is where the show starts to blow my mind)
IT TURNS OUT SHE’S A CLONE.
“Nobody would notice if I died.”
If you’re a clone - one of god knows how many - it’d be so easy to come to this conclusion. What’s tragic about Sarah is that she decides this before she finds out she’s a clone (Alison, on the other hand, comes to this after, “I’m not even a real person!”)If Sarah dies, someone else who looks exactly like her could theoretically step into the void. No one would notice.
Except people do notice when Sarah’s clones try to take her place. Look at Kira. She knew right away that Alison wasn’t Sarah. And though it seemed the wool had been pulled over Mrs S’ eyes, she noticed too.
Sarah believes her life’s interchangeable with any other human on the planet. Orphan Black has set out to prove the exact opposite, by giving Sarah foils who are literally interchangeable with her. Even though there are maybe hundreds of people who share her face, the world would notice if Sarah Manning disappeared. It has before, and every interaction, every time a clone impersonates another clone, it becomes clearer. No one is like Sarah and everyone knows it. This show is proving Sarah wrong by using people who are genetically identical to her. Holy shite.
And now for something tragic – let’s take a look at Beth. Oh, my dear Beth. No one notices that she dies. Paul. Art. Cosima. Alison. None of them notice that Beth isn’t Beth right away. These are arguably the people closest to her and they don’t have a clue. Yes, they do catch up eventually. The fact that they don’t notice might be more of a testament to Sarah’s mimicry skills than anything else; then again, Alison did a pretty great job mimicking Sarah and it still didn’t fly. Sarah’s Beth ruse doesn’t end because people notice – it’s because she gets tired of it, or she messes it up in a way. Mind you, the way she messes up isn’t related to not being Beth. It’s related to being Sarah. The Clash. The accent. Fingerprints. For fuck’s sake, Helena walks into the precinct pretending to be Beth and no one can tell. At most, they think she’s had a bad day.
Whereas Sarah thinks no one would notice if she died, for Beth it’s actually true. Ow. Ow ow ow.
It’s a specific choice to have Sarah slip into Beth like this, then. Because as the show’s trying to prove to Sarah that, yes, people would notice if she died, it’s also presenting the opposite scenario to her. She’s the one proving that no one noticed Beth leaving. So can you blame her for thinking the same of herself?
TL;DR This show isn’t about clones at all. It’s about wondering if your existence matters to the world.
I was watching some bits of The Impossible Planet/The Satan Pit and of course it got me thinking about this line:
"But that implies, in this big grand scheme of Gods and Devils, that she is just a victim. But I’ve seen a lot of this universe. I’ve seen fake gods, and bad gods and demi gods and would-be gods, but out of all that, out of that whole pantheon, if I believe in one thing, just one thing, I believe in her."
and after I took a minute to fangirl about that line and think of some edits, this line from The Stone Rose popped into my head:
"Let’s hope we are in ancient Rome," said Rose. "You’ll get lynched if you hang around the estate dressed like that,"
"I’m sure you’d rescue me," said the Doctor. (page 17)
(and can we just talk about how he kissed her after she saved him later on in that same book?)
something about Rose saving the Doctor and the Doctor having complete faith in her ability to do so (and also saving entire worlds as well of course) just really melts my heart
Yeah you will because who even is Jake Miller
um….jake miller is amazing. he’s a new singer/rapper that only has one album out. so for him to be second to taylor on the top 140 trending list is actually amazing.
Plus that was a really adorable, humble tweet, so that makes me like him even more
the last one
He had the chance, he took it
is it your own skin though? As in you grew it, on your own body, from birth?
This skin was grown yes. On a human body. That is mine. I’m not a robot
Ok ok I’ll believe you… If you first tell me what this says:
I don’t need to prove myself to you how dare you, I love breathing oxygen
