You don’t feel your wounds then, or the ache in your back from the weight of the armor, or the sweat running down into your eyes. You stop feeling, you stop thinking, you stop being you, there is only the fight, the foe, this man and then the next and the next and the next, and you know they are afraid and tired but you’re not, you’re alive, and death is all around you but their swords move so slowly, you can dance through them laughing.

"Does Olivia know about Clearwater?"
Oh Harrison you love women with baggage don’t you ?
This ship is so hot though !
And this fuckery with Clearwater will go right back to WH and Fitz. Lawd.
If Mellie was traumatized by the rape and was unable to touch or even be with Fitz because he reminded her of his father then how did Karen get born?
Not to say that Mellie couldn’t gain her sexuality back but she seemed very adamant about not touching or being near Fitz. So how did she go from don’t touch me at all to having a kid close to two years later with that mental state?
I don’t think of it in terms of her “gaining her sexuality back.” It’s not remotely beyond the paler that she could have slept with him again. I really doubt they stopped having sex entirely for 20 years. It may have been less intimate than before, but they clearly had sex on occassion.
I’m speaking a bit personally as a victim of rape (and yes all rape victims have different reactions to trauma, I know) but it took me a minute to trust men around me or to even think about opening up sexually around someone. Which is why I said gaining her sexuality back because it is a process, at least it was for me. From what we saw she hated Fitz’s touch because he reminded her of Jerry. So how did she get over that soon enough to have a child with Fitz again in such a short period of time?
