Okay, so I’ve been rewatching Meine Liebe, mostly thanks to Phoebe’s yuletide story. And the other night I got to the end of Weider, with the fraught face-off between heros and villains. And, at the moment of peak tension, the Headmaster returns. There is a burst of orchestral “here I come to save the day” music, and the large doors are pushed slowly open, and there he is, all backlit and savior-esque.
And his every fat ringlet curl is bouncing in dramatic slow motion.
I had to pause the file until I could stop laughing. It took a while.
The fact that even this does not make me love the series any less should be all the recommendation anyone could want.
Also, this time around, I noticed how hot Nicholas is (Lui’s kind-of counterpart, the commoner-Strahl group leader with the green eyes). I feel called to write some fic for him. Possibly for him and Lui, because Nicholas enunciates his admiration of Our Heros and the logic behind it so clearly, and I think that probably makes Lui twitch when loyalty is directed at him. *grins*
