The Touch of Another: A Mick/Beth Picspam

I've always been a sucker for the underappreciated, and Moonlight definitely fits into that category. Chiller ran a Moonlight marathon over Thanksgiving break and, in between massively unhealthy portions of both mac and cheese and family company, I caught most of the episodes. I instantly fell in love with Mick and eventually warmed up to Beth. There was something special about Moonlight, aside from the decided hotness of its lead actor. Alex O'Loughlin does a really amazing job as Mick. It's too bad that Moonlight was cancelled after only one season, it could have been phenomenal. It deserves more love!

Sixty years is a long time to deny yourself the touch of another. But you do it because you just can't bear the thought of seeing yourself as a monster in someone else's eyes.

Mick: Please don't look at me.
Beth: Oh my God. What are you?
Mick: I'm a vampire.

What do you do when the one thing you need to save your life is the one thing that would make life unbearable?

Maybe it was her blood in my veins that let me feel her. The beating of her very living heart. Or maybe we've always been connected. Either way... being near me puts her in danger. So it has to stop.

Mick: Come on, let’s go do something.
Beth: Like what?
Mick: I don’t know. Something fun. Something quintessentially New York. We’ll catch a set at the Village Vanguard, with a couple of martini’s. A steak for the lady. Just you and me on the town. Come on.
Beth: I don’t know...our flight leaves in a couple of hours.
Mick: So, we’ll take a later flight.
Beth: Look, I don’t know. I…I do think I need to get home.

Mick: At the funeral, you were wearing his ring.
Beth: Yes. Yes, I was. But um, I realized even if he had proposed to me, I wouldn't have said yes.
Mick: Why not?
Beth: There's someone else. Has been for a while. I care about him a lot. And I think it's time he figured out what he's going to do about it.

Beth: Being a vampire isn't all you are. It's not what's keeping us apart. It's just you.
Mick: Maybe you're right. I don't know. But just give me a chance to figure it out, okay?
Beth: Just don't take too long. You may have forever... but I don't.

Beth: That night that we first met or met again, whatever... what was I wearing?
Mick: Blue jeans, white-striped shirt, cream jacket.
Beth: What about my shoes?
Mick: You were barefoot.
Beth: How can you remember that?
Mick: Because I love you

Man, I miss this show. It really could have been something amazing if it was given the chance.

Lovely picspam, I love the quotes/scenes you used. Some of these really defined Mick and Beth's relationship :)

I know right. It really could have. :)

Moonlight is amazing. I wish it wasn't canceled at all. What really bugs me is that a couple months after this was canceled, vampires became all the rage.

Awesome picspam btw :)

Ugh, I know. And they weren't anywhere near as good as Mick.

Thanks. I'm glad you like it. :)

Thanks. I'm glad you like it.

I bought the series off amazon right after the marathon ended. Oops. It is one of the best vampire shows ever.

I loved this show, I still can't believe it was cancelled.

It so should not have been cancelled. :(

Gorgeous picspam! Moonlight really was such a fun show plus Mick is really pretty which is a bonus.

Thanks! Ah, Mick. ♥

How funny that just as I'm about to marathon Moonlight, I see this on my flist. :p

Great spam! You really captured some of the best M/B moments. I miss this show. :(

Great minds think alike. ;)

Thank you. I'm glad you like it.

Amazing picspam. I love Moonlight and mourn its loss - you've captured so many beautiful moments. It's the only show that has ever really engaged me in a fandom and I still can't quite let it go. So beautiful. Thank you. :*

Thank you. It's too bad I didn't watch it when it was first on. I guess better late than never. ♥

One of the best shows ever. I rewatched it so many times. Mick is the only vampire I have fallen head over heels for, I usually find the whole vampire thing a turn off actually.

[identity profile] hiddleasaurus.livejournal.com 2009-11-30 12:34 am (UTC)(link)
Yep. It could have been so amazing if it was given the chance.

Aw, love it! Such a cool show! I miss it.

Ahhh, Moonlight. I miss thee. And yes, more love for the show please. ♥
Thanks for this.

There can never be enough Moonlight ♥.

Just beautiful. Mickbeth always have been and always will be just amazing. I miss this show every day, so thank you for the picspam and reminder of how great it is!

What a lovely tribute to a wonderful show. Your choices of pictures and quotes really spoke to me. I've been a fan of the series since its inception and still love it as much as when I first saw it...maybe more. Thanks for keeping it alive!

Thank you! ♥

Because I Love You

Never seen a picspam before, but this was truly poetic! I will never forget the classic romance of Mick St. John and Beth Turner; Moonlight will remain in my heart forever.
