-It’s her birthday today.
-Do you want to discuss something with me?
-Yes, indeed father. It’s… Are you aware that Polly comes to me when she… has questions about mother?
-To me. Because she knows very well that she will get no answer from you. What was her favorite song? what was her favorite poem? her favorite writer? her favorite flowers?, and the worst: Why do people always tell me that I am exactly like her?. And I have no answers to give her.
-I am sorry to hear that but—
-Are you? You… I don’t know. We can not even mention her when you are in the same room. You deny her whole existence.
-Stop talking about her.
-When was the last time you said mother’s name? Or the last time you just thought of her?
-I think I understand. It’s probably easier for you this way: no memories, so no remorse when—
-Enough Patsy! Don’t say anymore.
-If you need me, I will be outside.
( she buried her tiny nose in the flowers, eyes closed, dark auburn curls around a lithe face, and slowly breathed in the fresh scent. the smile she offered him was ravishing.
“they are beautiful Tom.” )
-Her favorite flowers. Bachelor’s buttons. The purple ones...

voilà! It’s just… the Jeffersons give me a lot of feeeeels, OKAY?! So, idk, i have the feelings that the ‘Martha subject’ (his late wife and, imho, the loss and the love of his life from which he never fully recovered) was a very sensitive topic during all his lifetime, and he always avoided to mention her -like in his autobiography for example- which was pretty difficult to handle for their daughters. FAV HISTORICAL OTP ALERT GUYS!
yep, i’m making my own TJ mini-serie and dreamcast in my head!

“R I S E and F A L L and R I S E”
London | 1927, end of the Roaring Twenties
—Two egocentric aristocrats siblings sponging their Father’s fortune, live in their own champagne’s bubble: alcohol, luxury, ‘parties fines’, and, on occasion, pure Chinese opium. But the 1929 crash and the fall of the Great British Empire are coming. The Family loses its entire status, ‘breaking’ their Father’s heart, and the only reminiscence of their abundance is their -now empty- manor. Wounded in their pride, the siblings decide to ‘shine’ in other spheres whatever the price. Law graduate and brilliant Machiavelli, the brother thinks politics could be his salvation and he finds particular interest in this new German party more and more popular in Europe. At the same time, in need of freedom and opium, the sister comes closer to the artistic London sphere, discovering the socialist and communist ideas.
The two siblings’ life follows now Europe’s destiny: previously close, now hating each other and fighting over the manor’s inheritance.

So it’s disgusting, she thought.
What was the name of this meal again? Golubtsy or something like that ; one of these Russian recipes of which he alone had the secret. She swallowed slowly and looked up at him, his face full of pride and apprehension.
“So, it’s very,” she started -Don’t look at him in the eyes! Don’t. You’re an actress, so act!- “… good?”
