#AlexOLoughlin & A Month of Mick (#30) – And then there was Beth……

A while back I wrote a story about Mick and Beth,  and I want to start with the exact same words that I used back then – because it is still true……

My observations are coming from somebody that did not really ship anybody in the story. I just watched it in total awe of the magic that Alex brings to the small screen. The romantic girl in me loved Mick/Beth, the passionate hot-blooded woman in me loved Mick/Coraline and I could even see and feel the Mick /Josef connection…….

We as viewers enter the story of Mick and Beth at a very profound moment in time. It was the day Beth changed in Mick’s eyes from being the little girl he saved and protected a long time ago, to becoming a woman that stirred some passion inside him. She kind of surprised him by being this daring woman who would do anything to get the story – even walking barefoot through a fountain in the early hours of the morning……..


What do most girls want?

Maybe a man who will cherish and protect them…..

And what do most men want?

Maybe a girl who is spontaneous and fun, but who will also take care of him……someone he can trust.

Was this what Mick and Beth found with each other?

(Okay, most of you will say this is an old fashion view on love and matters of the heart, but as I say maybe “most”, but not all…. 😀 )

Once again Mick saves Beth, but this time she is a woman who can make her own decisions of what to do with her hero……..


She decides to follow her dreams and find out why he is part of them……..


In his time of need…….she takes care of him


And he protects her once again……


He thinks it is best for her if he stays away…..

……..And then she lets him know that she cares for him…….


And we find out what he really wants…….and that it matters!

He cares enough to protect her against herself…… 😛


By being a gentleman…….


And then she realises he is her ‘Guardian Angel’…..


And she cares enough, to not let their past matter……


Josef: You are in love, my friend……..seal the deal!! 😀


……but fate stepped in…..and she (and us 😛 ) only get one kiss!


and it is complicated! 😕


They try dating 😛


She still has some doubts about his loyalty to her….

….but he only wants to make out with her and no one else!


In the end, she thought it might be best to let him go….. 😦


But for him, it is about what they mean to each other, “right here and right now!”

ml16-i-love-uBecause he loves her!


It was a tough show for everybody in a sense that it was a high maintenance girlfriend. You love her, she’s great in bed but it takes so much of your time to appease her that you’re left going, ‘Okay, is this worth the end result?’

    Call me old-fashioned because I agree with you. I keep looking for those qualities. Of course I’m nearly 43 and never been married. Ah hell, I’m not lowering my standards! I need me an old-fashioned guy like Mick! 🙂


  2. I am totally with you on this, I love the romance between Beth and Mick. I am also 44 years old, and never been married, I would love to find a guy like Mick.


  3. I have no words how beautiful this post is! The words, these gifs, this…. everything!
    Simply wonderful!

    I am old fashioned too and this is a beautiful summation of their relationship and the pictures are delightful. Thank you, I love it! 🙂

    I’m old fashioned too and think had the showed continued we would have been all the more in love with him and the vision of Prince Charming! Ahhh, to bad it happens only on tv or in the movies!
    Great gifs, beautiful pictures. Wonderful everything!


  6. What a wonderful post! Thanks for the great gifs and pics. 🙂

    This is indeed a wonderful post with fantastic gifs!
    I’m old-fashioned too, married for nearly 15 years and still waiting for my NotMcG to become PrinceCharming 😉!! What i really wanted to say is, that a RL Mick only happens once in a blue moon, all the others happen ONLY on tv, ONLY on tv!!!! But nevertheless, i’m as happy as i can be (with my life) and i can have my little “dreams” on the side!!
    Hopefully i haven’t offended anybody or dissappointed – otherwise i’m truely sorry and apologize!!
    I have to add, that i love it here very VERY much, i love all the comments and the flirting around Mick!


  8. I am a romantic and am still waiting for Prince Charming. Knowing me, I’d find him dull and look for a bad boy. That is why Mick is so appealing to me. He is an old fashioned gentleman, but the vampire in him is bad @ss, which I would hope to see carry over into the bedroom department now and then.
    Paula, your gifs are a masterpiece! They not only pull at your heart strings, make you laugh ( love the dinner date when she says she won’t work for vampires…his reaction was perfect) but mostly they stir a deep desire of passion that only a man like Mick could satisfy.
    I love my Steve and Stan, but Alex as Mick has some kind of hold on me. Mostly in my nether regions. 😉
    Thank you both for an incredible month of Mick! Wouldn’t we all die to have a month with this man one on one?! Eternity may be a little too long, but with Mick I’d give it a try. 😀

    Your gifs summed up the whole series so beautifully. I am old fashioned and that’s one reason I loved the show so much. I think a show is sexy when love is revealed in the characters, and that’s through finding out about the other person, being attracted to them, respecting them, sacrificing for them, being foolish for them, committing to them and exploring that commitment, wanting the best for them, all things we saw in this wonderful show. Thanks so much for your beautiful art and making Moonlight come alive again.

    Oh Paula I am so going to miss this now that we are in a new month. You have done a great job showing us why we love alex as Mick so much and forever, and the gif? Oh I drool everyday. I have to say in honesty that as much as I love mick I never ever like beth or cared for her character. I tried very hard to like her but in the end I did not care for her. I just did not belive she loved mick. I think she loved the idea of Mick.

    I think she loved that fact that this tall, dark sexy as hell stranger has been watching over me since I was a child , and now is in love with me, and will do just about anything for me, ( I mean what woman wouldn’t) I also think she loved mick exciting and mysterious life as a vampire, instead of her boring life with good old lawer josh. That is what I think she was in love with. My heart was more for than her. I wanted him to be happy and win beth’s love out of love for him, Not beth. Iloved to see Mick let his passion show when he kissed beth on the roof top I just melted like jello becsue it was such a passionate kiss (if that was me I would say to hell with it and take him to the bed room! In that final shot of the last episode I was happy for mick, but not beth. In the end I wonder if they reallywould last as a couple? Me personal I would say no, but at least I got to see the hot passion of Mick and that I will always love.
