#liv has become so cynical after all the pain she and fitz have gone through and she tries to put that all on on andrew #tries to compare the relationships BUT THEY AREN’T THE SAME #she thinks that andrew stopping the affair would be bc he chooses power but it’s not #in the end he’s always choosing mellie #waiting for her #it all goes back to ‘someone needs to look out for you - be on your side’ #AND EVEN THOUGH HE WANTS TO FIGHT AGAINST OLIVIA AT EVERY TURN #’glass houses olivia #’this isn’t some sleazy affair - mellie and i’ #’i’m in love with her - i love her’ #the middle row is so imPORTANT #BECAUSE LIKE #that’s a moment of clarity for him #that he’ll suffer not being with her if it means still being in the white house #serving this next term with her #LOOKING OUT FOR HER AND BEING NEAR HER IF NOTHING ELSE #he has never expected something from her or felt like he was entitled to her and that’s why olivia’s speach about choice #which is really just a fucking speach about her and fitz #’men like you will always choose power yada yada’ #doesn’t faze him #he doesn’t EXPECT mellie to choose him over her career #HE WANTS HER TO HAVE EVERYTHING #and he wants to be able to give it to her #he LOVES HER SO MUCH #that that spark of hope and rebellion against what olivia that is saying that mellie WOULD choose him is telling him he has to end things #because liv ruining him and mellie still standing by him? #that would kill any chance of her political future as well #i have so much more to say but ahhhhh #all that really matters is that his tie matched her dress when fitz’s didn’t #♥♥♥♥♥♥♥
