Here’s what I find curious (not necessarily in direct response to anything you said, but in general on this topic)…is that when Ivanova makes her remark to Garibaldi about snapping his hands off at the wrists, many people have assumed that she was insulting him, berating him, being bitchy, truly disliking and threatening him.

But the same words, put in the mouth of another male, wouldn’t have drawn that reaction, and would’ve been classified under, ‘kidding around’ or affable sarcasm.

Ganya Ivanov: Susan, what are you doing here?  You’re supposed to be at the university.

Susan Ivanova: Well, you know me, never where I’m supposed to be.  I just wanted to see you before you left.

Ganya Ivanov: I thought big brothers were supposed to take care of their little sisters?  Not the other way around.

Susan Ivanova: So sue me.

Ganya Ivanov: I will, later, when I get back.

Susan Ivanova: I was just worried, that’s all.  I’ve heard so many terrible stories about what’s going on out there.

Ganya Ivanov: It’s not as bad as everyone says.  I’ll be fine.  The military takes care of it’s own.

Susan Ivanova: Well good.  Then you’ll back me up when I decide to sign up in a few months.

Ganya Ivanov: Susan Ivanova you can’t-

Susan Ivanova: I’ll be old enough by then!

Ganya Ivanov: Father won’t stand for it.

Susan Ivanova: It’s my choice, not his..

*Background Chatter*

Ganya Ivanov: I have to go.  I love you little sister.

Susan Ivanova: I love you too.  Ganya wait.  Remember when we were camping and we got lost.  And then I lost my earring and then we were found but I never found the earring.  And you made me feel better by telling me that is was lucky?

Ganya Ivanov: I remember but-

Susan Ivanova: Here take this.  For good luck.  I won’t wear it again until you come back.  Until you give it back to me.  That way we know you’ll come back.

Ganya Ivanov: See you soon.

SUSAN IVANOVA/TALIA WINTERS. your heart is the only place that i call home. ►listen.

for all the dreams we had to silence, that’s all they’ll ever be
