Older people are usually always nicer, kinder, and more generous, because after years of being an asshole they realize it wasn’t worth it.

‘Tiny’ meta on the guitars in Roswell New Mexico
Because I hate this show and it’s dumb.
So recently I was trying to figure out what kind of guitars Alex has, for fic reasons, and I had the brilliant idea to look at both of the guitars in 1x06 and the guitar Michael plays in the Wild Pony at the end of 1x13.
Unfortunately for me, you, and everyone, what I discovered is that the guitar Michael steals from Alex when they initially meet is the same guitar that he plays in the bar. (A Läg guitar, if you are interested, likely an occitania model of some sort. Interesting historical footnote: Neil Diamond also play(s/ed) this brand.)
For those interested, there are a total of five guitars show in the series so far: Alex’s Läg, the guitar Michael has in the photograph from 1x02(likely the same guitar Rosa is playing in the pilot), the guitar Alex gives to Michael in the toolshed in 1x06, and the two in Alex’s house in season 2(2x05+2x11).
Tumblr media
So my meta/headcanon here is that when Alex leaves for Iraq, he gives Maria the guitar for safekeeping - since it’s likely he would know it wasn’t safe at his house. She keeps it, sometimes using it at the Pony for performances and as a backup guitar for impromtpu jam sessions. The only time we see it at the Pony there is also a drum kit set up.
During 1x13, Michael tells Isobel that he’s had the realization that his relationship with Alex isn’t healthy, that lately it ‘just hurts’ and ‘feels like a crash landing’; to which Isobel gives him the advice ‘Maybe Max is right. Maybe it’s time we stop looking back and start looking forward.’
For me this is a big reason why he goes to the Wild Pony later, rather than meeting Alex and talking about their entangled past together. Michael is trying to move forward.
And just like Alex will in Season 2, the best way for him to start to do that is through music. (Which...tfw your coping strategies and healing rituals are the same....COSMIC.)
Now that his hand is healed (however non-consensual the act itself) Michael actually has that chance to try and heal himself. It isn’t the magic remedy Max hoped his healing powers would be. (’To heal this, you’ll have to reopen the wound in your mind. All the pain you’ve hidden there.)
To really heal from grief, one of the key components is that you have to let go of the expectations and hopes that you wanted from whatever isn’t possible anymore. And Season 1 has a really interesting progression showing Michael starting on that journey. And in this moment in the finale he has the same chance Alex will get in Season 2: to say goodbye to the person he was and the relationship that could have been and all the hurt that he’s held onto because of that, and start trying to move forward.
So, Michael goes to Maria at the Wild Pony, and sees The Guitar. The same guitar that he ‘borrowed’ from Alex eleven years ago that started them on the path to where they are now.
He wants to be with Maria, he agrees with Maria that they need to talk. But first, he has to say goodbye to what he’s been holding onto with Alex.
By playing the same guitar that brought them together.
(The way he looks at the guitar in this moment reads so much more tender to me than just him being able to play music again. Yes, this is something he’s been hindered from doing for ten years, but Maria doesn’t seem overly surprised to hear Michael playing. She is only surprised when she notices his hand is healed. Moreso, I think that - especially since in the in-between scene is Liz talking to Rosa’s grave, wishing for all the things Rosa never got to experience - that this is Michael connecting with his grief in a way he hasn’t been able to, and reckoning with his own hopes for the past.)
Tumblr media
Like he’s momentarily transported somewhere else.
And I don’t think this is coincidence. There are multiple guitars and to use *this one* - the one that started it all - feels significant.
It feels like a signifier that Alex still is and always will be an important part of Michael’s life. Even if he’s playing this guitar in Maria’s presence, even if he in this moment is choosing Maria, Alex is always, *always* going to be a part of him. (And we could do a whole *other* meta on how music is the language through which Michael and Alex - oh wait I already did that. But, regardless, music is a large part not just of how Michael finds peace, but how he connects to himself. And Alex is always going to be a part of that.)
(You could, if you chose, also see this as yet more foreshadowing of the three of them having a role in each other’s lives and healing journey, or you could not, but the fact that it is *Alex’s* guitar that Michael plays I think is undeniabley significant.)
Even if the relationship that he has with Alex right now hurts, Michael isn’t throwing the whole thing away. He might be forming a new relationship with it, but what he has with Alex is...well...you know.

i am going to enact violence.... hhhrgGHHHG
#there is one single tiny window air conditioner in one room of the house (not even mine)#and all the bedrooms are connected to one hallway so we've nailed up a curtain to close the hallway off from the rest of the apartment#so everyone can like... get air flow from the on bedroom with air but still - a single small window air conditioner is not meant to cool mul#tiple rooms jhjkhkj ... I have a little personal fan and a little table fan though I can put next to my bed. my windows have layers#of stuff nailed on top of them to keep all light out. I have some spray bottles and usually wet my sheets in the sink before going to#bed or at least use a wet wash cloth so my bed is damp and cool  but........hhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh#I licherally cannot emphasize enough how much i HATE heat and warm weather.. SO much.. not even just dislike#but I'm really sensitive to it. Even when I'm completely hydrated and fine otherwise I just get nauseous and completely lose my appetite#and often have headaches and my skin can get itchy and rashy sometimes when I sweat too much. ALSO I CAN'T SLEEP!!#at least with these kind of older not very well insulated apartments - it's this thing where during the DAY (when it's actually hot outside)#it's cooler outside. and during the night (when it's COOLER outside) it's hotter inside. It's like all the heat from the day ONLY happens#to seep in and finally take a hold on the house at the end of the day which is also like.. that's when people SLEEP#and with multiple days of heat there's no chance for the place to cool down so it just gets worse and worse. On a 90F day it can#get up to 82F inside at night so I can only imagine.. on a 110F day it's going to get to like 97 inside or worse.. INSIDE#I've mad plans also to maybe hole up in the bathroom. it's in an interior corner and has no windows - a tile floor - and water#ALSO in heat waves sometimes the power goes out. ALSO the fires are going to be bad this year probably if things are shaping#up to be this hot and dry. I hATE it i HATE evil violence kill HGHGHHBJ... iMAGINE having central heating and air#imAGINE living in a place where it just never gets this hot (though with climate change i imagine those places#will eventually run out). WHY can't we enter another ice age !!! if it was global cooling?? that'd be bad too but I am not made for the heat#when temperatures in the winter are like 113F everyday because of fuck shit billionaire companies fuck idiot stink ruining the planet#(kill them all btw) then us helpless masses stuck along for the ride are just going to.. what#... melt?? at least in the cold you can bundle up. In the heat it's like.. there's only so many layers of clothing you can remove#there's only so much you can do. absolutely inhospitable.. This combined with other things I'm having like an early mid-life crisis#I've barely gotten anything done in life I'm fearful I'm NEVER going to have the resources to move.. I'm going to stay stuck here#forever - stagnant and incapable - just waiting around until I die from heat stroke or fires or earthquakes. I have to get off of this coast#hjhbhjbjhhbhjbj I'm in like my mid 20s and I'm debilitatingly mentally ill and unproductive. if i functioned well enough to have published a#book already or something or to have COMPLETED things like.. get some of my projectfinally finished.. MAYBE i'd have enough#resources to scrape together and GET OUT.. HGH anyway.. I feel very situationally insecure at the moment like I do every summer#why can't i just live in like.. northern scotland or something.. i make games and sculptures for a living and am not in repetitive danger#of wiildfires and heat death.. also I have 5 cats.. also I'm 7 feet tall and have fangs and elf ears... SINCE we're speaking in ideals lol
