Transcript: Caduceus isn’t a pacifist and alligators eat babies – TM for CR C2 Ep59 0:36:16

I feel extremely called out, Brian w. Foster, but you're not wrong. Here's your alligators eating babies transcript. "Flowers are beautiful, mushrooms are fascinating, rot is beautiful, and the swamp smells great. Also, alligators fucking eat a baby. And you're like, 'And it's all part of the tapestry.'"Taliesin Jaffe Scene runs: 0:36:16 to 0:38:15 0:36:16 … Continue reading Transcript: Caduceus isn’t a pacifist and alligators eat babies – TM for CR C2 Ep59 0:36:16

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

Transcript: The story Matt wants to tell – TM 2019-04-09 for CR C2 Ep057

A major theme of this Talks episode was the narratives Matt does and doesn't want to tell. He talked about why he doesn't want to kill the pets, doesn't want Nott to be rejected, doesn't want to end the campaign from poor choices, and wants light in the darkness to inspire. Sam said Matt is … Continue reading Transcript: The story Matt wants to tell – TM 2019-04-09 for CR C2 Ep057

Transcript: Caduceus’ reaction to the romance novel reading – TM for CR C2 Ep50 0:36:36

This answer tells us a few things about Clay. It's clear he knows sex is a thing, enough to know a colloquialism for it. Which suggests his knowledge isn't textbook. Meaning he's not just sheltered. You don't pick up the word hanky-panky from people instructing you what sex is for the sole purpose of telling … Continue reading Transcript: Caduceus’ reaction to the romance novel reading – TM for CR C2 Ep50 0:36:36

Analysis: Caduceus and Caleb build their relationship – CR C2 Ep47 2:40:07

The two flattering exchanges between Caduceus and Caleb caught my ear as much as anyone. There's clearly some stronger, closer relationship forming there. Maybe it will come to something else one day, but on review, I'm not reading it as romantic overtures so much as two socially awkward people trying to communicate kindness.

Transcript: Taliesin hints as Caduceus’ sexuality and discusses Fjord’s “bad decision” – TM for CR C2 Ep41 1:04:07

This wasn’t the answer on Caduceus’ sexuality I was hoping for, but I’m so grateful for it. Taliesin knows what this means to people, and he wants to make sure he has time and space to explore it properly rather than give a short, incomplete answer. “We’re not there yet, but definitely…” He wants to … Continue reading Transcript: Taliesin hints as Caduceus’ sexuality and discusses Fjord’s “bad decision” – TM for CR C2 Ep41 1:04:07

Transcript Caleb and Caduceus talk about faith and fate, Caleb hands off the periapt – Critical Role C2 Ep041 0:12:14

This scene hit me hard. It was something I’ve felt for a long time, through several years of hell, but never had the words for. My full story, how Critical Role fit into that strife, and my thoughts on what Caduceus and this scene mean to me are here. I encourage you to read them … Continue reading Transcript Caleb and Caduceus talk about faith and fate, Caleb hands off the periapt – Critical Role C2 Ep041 0:12:14

Transcript Fjord asks Caduceus what the plants say – CR C2 Ep038 0:13:17

Reading the Talks Machina question submissions this week, I was struck by how many of them asked how Caduceus felt about Melora not talking to him or not in the way The Traveler talks to Jester. Some asked if this was a conscious character choice, and they were nearer the mark. Caduceus is heavily rooted … Continue reading Transcript Fjord asks Caduceus what the plants say – CR C2 Ep038 0:13:17
