writtenwords-and-constellations asked: HI AGAIN (I'm sorry I message you so much but none of my friends are as enthusiastic about TLOU as I am so I just need to flail at someone) so I work at Gamestop, right? And tonight I had to resist the urge to buy every copy of the Remaster. NOT TO MENTION we have this dumb TVs in the store that play game trailers and such BUT THEN SURPRISE GUESS WHAT TLOU REMASTERED TRAILER SUDDEN JOEL/ELLIE FEELINGS I AM RUINED so yeah I just wanted to share my pain with you. ;v;

This blog was created for TLOU flailing. Clearly I’m not doing my job if you aren’t wailing feels at me. WHAT YOU WORK AT GAMESTOP THAT IS THE BEST THING EVER. Definitely the best place to be for someone with our addiction I MEAN INTEREST. Yeah, man. You gotta watch out for those ninja-attack Joel/Ellie feels. They attack and send you sprawling to the floor at the most awkward times. YES SHARE THE PAIN SHARE ALL OF IT THE PAIN FEEDS ME.

writtenwords-and-constellations asked: fic update: jealous!Joel is happening because the jealousy trope is one of my favorites. Ellie, naturally, thinks he's just being an idiot but he's HER idiot so that makes it okay. *nods*

There is nothing in this world I love more than jealous!Joel. It is known. I LOVE EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS LITTLE UPDATE AND I AM DELIGHTED THAT I HAVE BEEN INFORMED.

So guess who just watched TLOU One Night Live? Yep. It was fun, it was cute, and the singing bit left me in stitches. Of course, I’m on the other side of the Atlantic at the moment and couldn’t be there, but I’m fortunate enough to have some inside sources. Seriously Isabelle, do I ever owe you one! So apparently there was an epilogue of sorts they didn’t release because it didn’t fit in with the ending. Basically, Joel sang an implied apology to Ellie, and after he left she strummed on the guitar he left and smiled. You can read the whole description if you give it a quick Google search. Hell yeah implied forgiveness that didn’t really make it to canon and won’t be released officially? Like Isabelle told me when we talked, it felt like closure. Any of the articles you read will tell you it was reportedly ‘a good-bye to Joel and Ellie.’ It definitely felt like it. Do I dare to believe the dreaded sequel with them splitting up isn’t happening? Hopefully EllieandJoel’s story will end just as it is. FINAL THOUGHTS: I’m glad they did this. It was a great way to bring everybody together again and give one last big hurrah. 

Did your friend say if it really was four years after the ending of the game or after they’ get settled into Jackson? That’s what I’m most curious about. It feels like a good scene for closure though, him finally singing to her. Makes me feel warm and fuzzy….!!

Depending on who you ask, it could be either or. From what I gathered from multiple articles, it just happens after. No official timeline. Whatever you feel makes the most sense to you, I suppose. Considering it’s not exactly hard-and-fast canon, I’d say there’s definitely some wiggle room there.
