Analysis & Transcript: Fjord is ashamed of losing his abilities – CR C2 Ep62 1:56:49

I really sympathize with Fjord right now. As someone whose had their abilities and their old life taken from them, who thinks every day about what they cost their loved ones, this is a powerful and intensely real narrative. That denial and shame are horrible. It's awful and terrifying feeling like everything you've been working … Continue reading Analysis & Transcript: Fjord is ashamed of losing his abilities – CR C2 Ep62 1:56:49

Transcript: Fjord’s inner fears – TM for CR C2 Ep61

This is the longest Talks Machina transcript I've put together (it's 14 pages), and it's only half the good stuff: Beau's answers were also excellent. This is the absolute best of what Talks can be: Travis spilled absolutely everything about the subtext of Fjord and what's been going on in his mind as he panics. … Continue reading Transcript: Fjord’s inner fears – TM for CR C2 Ep61

Analysis: What Caleb’s appearance means to him – CR C2 Ep61

Caleb’s recent change of appearance shows how far he’s come. It’s as important as any new magic item or ability. It’s not just an aesthetic change, it’s full of subtext about how he’s started overcoming his trauma. Scruffy, dirty hobo Caleb with arm bandages represents the traumatized place he started from, but he’s moving past … Continue reading Analysis: What Caleb’s appearance means to him – CR C2 Ep61

Analysis: Fjord’s reaction to Wursh – CR C2 Ep058 0:29:14

Doing something a bit different. Instead of a full transcript this will be a body language read of Fjord after the analysis. I highly recommend rewatching the scene and just watching Fjord. He takes an epic face journey throughout that gives off a lot of his emotions while trying (badly) to mask them. All of … Continue reading Analysis: Fjord’s reaction to Wursh – CR C2 Ep058 0:29:14

Transcript How Fjord looked as a kid – Critical Role C2 Ep011 3:04:42

This feels way more important after the encounter with Wursh the blacksmith in Ep058. How Fjord was perceived as a half-monster by the people who raised him defines so much of his current behavior. Scene runs: 3:04:42 to 3:05:51 3:04:42 Fjord, clearing his throat: "I understand. I know what it feels like to be ashamed … Continue reading Transcript How Fjord looked as a kid – Critical Role C2 Ep011 3:04:42
