So I just opened the link with the picture of the script for 3x05, called “The Secret Origin Of Felicity Smoak,” super excited that we’re finally going to give our girl the backstory she deserves!
I went to the comment section waiting to share my excitement with the other fans only to see half of them calling the Felicity-centric episode…. *drum roll*
Are we being fucking serious here?! Like, its not enough that those against Olicity have no valid argument to provide against the pairing so they have made the word “Fanservice” their mantra all over the internet, now there’s this? In which fucking universe is exploring A MAIN CHARACTER a fanservice?! Since when giving a character that is SERIES REGULAR -and the one who is actually considered by very many to be the female lead of the show- a backstory is a fucking fanservice?
EVERYBODY has a backstory. Even Sin that we’ve seen a handful of episodes. Even Deadshot. Even Amanda freakin’ Waller, we know that she was involved in what was happening in Lian Yu since season 1. Gosh, even the bird Oliver killed on season 1 to survive has a backstory. We have known a little something about everyone except Felicity. To me, it has always been obvious that they wouldn’t take so long to show something about her if they didn’t have big plans for her all along. Not to mention that she was the surprise of the show. For every other character, the writers had had a plan all along. Felicity wasn’t part of their plans, so *surprise surprise* IT’S NATURAL TO TAKE LONGER TO EXPLORE HER PAST SINCE THEY DIDN’T HAVE IT PLANNED OUT ALL ALONG. However, those very, very few people who dislike her, have been using as an argument the fact that she has no backstory to say that she’s not realistic nor the female lead because of it. Now she finally does get the backstory, she gets ONE episode dedicated to her after two freakin’ seasons and it’s FANSERVICE that you’re gonna skip watching? And you’re calling yourselves fans of this show?
Since you’re apparently so angry that now you’ll have absolutely NOTHING to say against Felicity anymore that you do nothing but spit poison, I say you open up a dictionary before using the word because it’s pretty obvious you’re clueless about its meaning and desperate to find something to root your hate on. Or even better? Quit watching the show and leave all those who enjoy whatever the hell they want to enjoy, alone!
