Deep in the depths of my files...I found them.
This actually made my whole week thank you so much<3
Thank you Veronica!!! This brightened my day, i miss so much the Divergent era!!
Part of the reason why they’re a strong & relatable couple, neither sugarcoated each other’s feelings, they’re both honest with each other even though sometimes it’s difficult to do so given their situations. It makes them question about everything about themselves, each other, & their relationship. Truly, you’re a genius!👏👏👏👏
The general point I think in this deleted scene is how someone deals with trauma & how it’s handled in a relationship whether it be friendships, Romance, or familial. Both Tris & Tobias have dealt with trauma, but for Tris it’s really hard as she’s never experienced pain like this before. Plus, I think I see how hard it is for Tobias not to completely understand her struggles as though he’s too experienced pain, he’s never understood it like what Tris recently went through & he deals with it differently than her
There’s also the fact there’s a lot of Erudite in Tris as she’s very more logical in certain situations especially emotional ones in any relationship. Kinda reminds of Booth & Brennen’s relationship (from Bones) to with Booth being the more passionate & Brennan being the logical: two opposites that yet go exceedingly well together 🥰
Plus I could also understand Tris’s perspective in the conflict as well. As a strong woman you’ve been taught to build yourself up in a way that no one should ever hurt you especially in a world where anything or anyone can because of you being a woman
Tobias had experienced pain for most of his life mainly due to his family & it’s been hard for him to trust anyone to bare his secrets & vulnerability to in a society that makes you suppress them. Plus it also shows how strong Tobias & Tris’s dynamic is, I remember from a Q&A in one of the earlier editions of Insurgent you mentioned how reversed the gender norms in a relationship between Tris & Tobias. Normally it’s the woman who’s emotional & the male more logical in the relationship, so to see that kind of thing differ in their relationship is so real raw & refreshing cuz the woman would get emotional about her male partner for not feeling enough, but I see that through the male’s perspective in Tobias which makes his character all the more appealing 😏😘
Thank you so much Veronica, I enjoyed these deleted scenes so much!
I was shocked, moved, & amazed by these deleted scenes.
I know you thought that Tobias sounded like an a***hole for what he felt about Tris not being in love with him & lied to him about Will & I agree with you on your thoughts given what Tris had been through, but at the same time I can see from Tobias’s perspective because Tris had not experienced any pain till her time in Dauntless & the Erudite attack
This was awesome!!
This blessed me so much Veronica! Today i had the pleasure of finally flying into and out of O'Hare and it was a magical experience that your books; specifically Allegiant, enhanced so much, so it's a tremendous blessing that you sent this out today!!!
This made my year lol
I find reading these cut Scrivener excerpts slightly freaky, as my kids are called Tris & Tobias.
This was so refreshing to read! Made me realize how I've missed reading Divergent. The Divergent series will always have a special place in my heart! This world you created and its characters have always inspired me when everything else in my life went south. I wouldn't have grown into the same person without it. Thank you so much Veronica!
This was really cool, thank you so much!!
