If Emma Woodhouse and Gilderoy Lockhart ever met, you think they would just have a wink-off?
Going through the Emma Approved tag, all i can imagine is Alex sitting at home in sweatpants, crying, and shoving ice cream in his mouth. It’s a funny sight, even though i know he’d be like climbing rocks to clear his mind or something.
Just gonna casually photograph this bird on an early morning stroll. Oh crap, he spotted me.

I didn’t think Emma Approved could hurt me in this way. Alex said the thing, but he also said a lot of other things. Seeing him choke up a little bit when he told Emma he didn’t want to be part of the world she is in…that was nearly unbearable. Well done Joanna Sotomura and Brent Bailey!

god, the boxxhill pictures are such a glorious combination of pain and angst and awkward and perf
My favorite photo from the Boxx Hill gallery. If you go through the previous ones in the set Alex is watching Emma’s behavior and is clearly disappointed. And obviously Maddie becomes increasingly mortified, which is heartbreaking. But in pictures even before that Alex and Jane watch Frank and Emma laughing together and are clearly jealous and displeased. I feel like as the final photo of a group of people, this speaks a lot about what Alex is feeling. Caroline and Elton are clearly clueless as to any behavior, good or bad, and no longer important to the story - just filler characters who once were very important. There’s a hand that I haven’t been able to place in the lower left corner and I’m starting to think it belongs to Frank. And there’s Alex, struggling with a lot of emotions right there.
In other adaptations of Emma, I always think this is a little bit after Knightley realizes he loves Emma. Maybe this even is the time he does - perhaps it’s first his jealousy at her easy laughter with Frank and then his passionate disappointment in her that makes him realize it. But that’s got to feel like so, so much to Alex. I love my best friend. She’s hitting it off pretty damn well with this Frank guy, who is a total asshole and egging her on. Oh, and what’s he egging her on for? Some pretty shitty behavior. She’s being a godawful person.
Being disappointed in someone you love is tough. Realizing you love that someone, especially a best friend, is tumultuous as well. Imagine feeling all of those emotions at once.
