you are the harbinger of death, Kara Thrace

My mother went to oracles. She thought I was special. That I had an important role to play in life, and she was so convinced of it that I felt I could never live up to what she had in mind. All my life I've thought she just wanted me to succeed where she didn't. All my life I've lived with her scars.

you will lead them all to their end

You say you see the patterns, so let's get this over with. What do you want from me?

This is just such classic Starbuck. I like the combination of nostalgia, vague guilt, and agression. Awesome.

The level of and attention to detail in this is really poignant. From what I've seen of the show so far, I'm a big fan of Starbuck's impatience and this captures it so well, with a weary subtlety.

You've done a beautiful job capturing the complicated emotions of that moment. She doesn't know whether to be confused or frustrated or hopeful or fed up, and all of that comes through in just a few lines. Wonderful.
