I don't believe we have formally met. My name is Benjamin Linus, and I've lived on this island all my life.

I was told a lot of things — that I was chosen, that I was special. Ended up with a tumor on my spine and my daughter's blood all over my hands.

Maybe there's another way. A better way.

anonniemouse asked you:
Richard Alpert
  • why i like them

[It was just so cool that we didn’t really see much of Richard early, but he turned out to be a huge part of the last few seasons. And I LOVED how Nestor Carbonell didn’t know who the heck his character was until the sixth season!! :D

  • why i don’t

He was never the leader. Always second in command, never stepping up to be the leader (or maybe Jacob didn’t want him to be in charge— fair point.) Maybe he even didn’t want to be the leader because he didn’t want people to have a leader who never died. So, really, what I’m getting at with this is that there is nothing to not like about Richard Alpert.

  • favorite episode (scene if movie)

Ab Aeterno

  • favorite season/movie

Season 6

  • favorite line

Either “Then I don’t want to die… I want to live forever.”

or “We are all dead, every single one of us. And this, this, all this, it’s not what you think it is. We’re not on an island, we never were. We’re in Hell.”

  • favorite outfit

The usual nice shirt and grey pants

  • otp


  • brotp

Richard/Ben , maybe Richard/Locke

  • head canon

Jacob never told Richard everything, never told him his plan because Richard never would have agreed with Jacob allowing himself to be killed (because I think Jacob knew everything. As Ben said, “I seriously doubt Jacob was ever confused”. Jacob knew, and had a plan, I think.)

  • unpopular opinion

Richard wasn’t in the church because the most important part of his life came with Isabella.

  • a wish

Richard could’ve seen Isabella when Hurley translated for her in the garden.

  • an oh-god-please-dont-ever-happen

Richard/anyone besides Isabella. NO.

  • 5 words to best describe them

Immortal, adviser, wise, loyal, old

  • my nickname for them

Richardos? ]
