Fallen Musketeer: Freddie McClair
1992 - 2010

I fucking love you, man. I fucking love you to bits.

I am going to cry my eyes out when Cook finds out. Hell, I want to cry at this.

Thanks, bb. :(

I've had this song on a mofo-ing loop ever since episode 7. Reminds me of Cook and Freds so much. I seriously hope Cook does that psychopath in. I can't even imagine what state Cook's going to be in when he finds out.

The song "It's A Wonderful Life" by Sparklehorse that was featured on Freddie's episode last season has been on repeat for quite a long time on my iTunes. For some reason, that particular song always reminds me of his character and it's depressing. I'm quite sadistic in that way, I think. Seeing the TV trailer for next Thursday just looks like utter sadness, particularly Cook falling to his knees at the end. :(

Just gave it a listen, and I think that song perfectly captures Freddie, dream-like, surreal, there's a hopefulness but it betrays itself with this undertone of fatalistic sadness. Very haunting.

Cook sinking to the ground and crying just about killed me. I really don't know what his character is going to do without Freddie, who's always been there to bail him out of trouble and chew him out when he's being an ass. :(

I remember the exact scene the song was from, and ever since I've just thought "FREDDIE!" every time I hear it.

I know. I just got teary-eyed watching their fight scene (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=e8rndgkxxnw), so god knows what I'm going to be like when it's not anger Cook is expressing but sadness. What really makes it tragic is their relationship wasn't so villainous this series and Cook was willing to step down for Freddie. Cook's episode this series is going to be much sadder watching over, especially when he calls Freddie in jail and takes Effy's picture down in his cell and replaces it with them two together. :(

It's probably the most depressing thing on Skins that has occurred.

Although this is gorgeous. The Three Musketeers are no more. :(

ITA. :( Chris's death was very depressing as well, but Freddie's came totally out of left field.

I agree. Chris' death seemed inevitable to me, although I was kind of shocked. Freddie's was so senseless and it really shouldn't have happened. I heard some spoilers early on about how he was in the end credits of the finale, but I didn't actually believe it.

The whole scene was so chilling to me. The way he whimpered and screamed; how the blood splattered against the glass was so horrifying.

I seriously don't know what the writers thought they'd achieve by going through with it. Shock value, more drama? How does it make sense in terms of plot? What's it supposed to do? I wasn't a passinate fan of Freddie's but no character deserves to go out like that. :(

And can we not have another male character on the show obsessed with Effy??? Really, it's getting ridiculous.

I don't know why they decided to pull all the dramatics now, towards the end of the series. It's weird, I don't know how they can even pull an acceptable finale now, with all this shit that just happened. I'm so anxious to see how next Thursday will go down. His whole death was complete shit. It was so, so unnecessary. And I actually liked Freddie. Ugh, the writers pissed me off. But Skins is super ballsy and known for not pleasing their fans. Which can be good, they're controlling the show; but what keeps it alive are the fans. I'm just pissed off about the way they wrote him off and a couple other things, lol.

Everyone loves Effy, apparently. I love her too, but I don't like it when all the guys are so crazy about her. She's an intense and complex character. I thought C/E were good together because they were alike, but I also liked F/E because they contrasted a bit. I liked both ships a lot, hah.

You should upload this to tumblr. I'd like to reblog it ♥

Oh my gosh, apologies for the late response! Feel free to save this and upload it to tumblr, as long as you credit my lj. Freddie wasn't my favourite either, but he was likeable!
