Dino: the excited confessor, will be like a kid at a candy store big smiles, lots of giggles and is a little over the top

Proclamation Night 2: Your ribs.

It’s a subject we’ve already touched on. Excuse the pun. But here we are. You lowered your arms, so now I have to move on. I’m not sure if any of your ribs are more ticklish than the others, are you? What? Not giving me any hints? How mean! I suppose I’ll have to use the scientific method then. Let’s take it from the top. How about these tippy top ribs? My fingers prod them softly, rubbing them just slightly. It’s a little startling. The timing on both sides is just a little off, so the left side is a split second before the right, keeping you on your toes. It’s a good first reaction. I wonder how many ribs your have? You’re a short little cutie, so maybe you have less? Let’s start. 1 pair. You feel the fingers repeat their movements, sending short shocks up your spine. I keep this up, counting downwards, pair by pair. Being sure to give each the attention they deserve, as I wiggle softly on the muscles inbetween this pair and ones above just so gently. With my hands coming from behind you, it’s so close to an embrace that you feel almost comfortable. That is, until the fingers being their prodding again. They finally find the bottom ribs, before ascending up again, reversing the order. Oh, is it worse the second time around? Someone’s ribs are awfully ticklish, huh, darling? Such a tickwish little ribcage her, like a cutie’s xylophone! Why don’t we speed up and see what order produces the best tunes? My fingers wiggly playfully now in random patterns, scribbling all over in now discernable order to elicit the sweetest giggles and occassionally more proper laughter as I hit your most ticklish spots. As I reach the tops of your ribs, a thumb every now and again slips into your underarm to provide a new sensation. Poor little wonderful, didn’t expect that. How could I resist when I’m presented with such a sensitive little one as you? Awww, cootchie coo. Tickle tickle. These ribs have made some beautiful music, but a song can’t last forever! The next tune should be played on that tummy, featuring your sides~

The deeper truth hiding behind the ugly CGI

After looking at that silly (and quite a bit mocking, I admit) manip made as a joke for @ashermajestywishes, I kind of saw beyond it and then i realized something important. 

The awful interpretation of Hades A&E went with for 5B is a result of a much deeper and more troubling pattern. This thing right here: 

You know what it is? Can you guess? Let me give you all a hint: why does Hades have to have flaming much of CGI on his head in the first place? 

I mean, there’s no absolute reason for it. Ouat has ‘creative license’. They could have re-imagined a classic Greek mythological figure. They could have put their own spin on him. Made him a shriveled old man with skin pale as paper since he had been away from sunlight for so long. He could have been blind. He could have been actually Greek. He could have been black or Middle Eastern. (oh, noes) He could have dressed in jeans and a hoodie instead on finely tailored suit. He could have been one of those characters that have lived for sol long they don’t give a shit. He could have been – gasp! – a she

But no. It’s another white dude with blue eyes and quick tongue, adorned with unnecessary and poor CGI. I wonder if this has anything to do with this smooth and charismatic fella over here:

Hmm, might is have something to do with another Disney property the showrunners are trying to pull into their show and plainly cash out on? 

The answer is yes, but not the way you might have thought. A&E had devolved inot a pattern ever since 3B. And said pattern consists of grabbing in interesting property, an interesting character and copying said character/property as closely as they can. However, that copying only reaches the visual stage. They want them to look the part. To evoke the same association with a particular piece of media. That’s why Zelena’s Wicked Witch was green and had a pointy hat and used a broom to fly around. That is why she had monkeys as her helpers. That is why the whole Frozen half-season was a carbon copy of the movie. 

But. There it all ends. The similarity is there to drive your interest the second you throw your gaze upon a promo image or trailer. The ‘new vision’ of the character follows their incomprehensible mess of shoddy writing. The characters might look similar, sound similar, do all the parlor tricks on demand (remember that Elsa making a bridge out of ice bit? Wasn’t it ‘just like in the movie’? *eyeroll*), but that’s all superficial. Underneath all this glitter is just… nothing. The characters that are written as a replacement for what influenced them are hit or miss, yet the result entirely depends on a random element of what foot the writers got up on and if they wanted to write something good or just move along like usual. 

This whole pattern is a sign of a systematic problem plaguing the later seasons of Once upon a time. Which is extreme laziness camouflaged as innovation. 

Remember the original reinventions of fairy-tale characters, the ones the show began with? 

– The Evil Queen had a whole wardrobe of outfits. She wasn’t forced to wear the same exact replica of Disney’s Sleeping Beauty outfit. Her story had been changed, her whole identity had been reinvented going from ‘pretties of the all envy motivation’ to ‘deep, meaningful origin story unique to this character’.
– Red Riding Hood wasn’t a carbon copy from the story. She was the wolf.
– Frankenstein wasn’t copied off a recent movie starring a similar character or the classic one. He looked different, had his own story, and his own motivations.
– Mulan had her own look and her own story, which had nothing to do with the animated version.
– Strangely, back then Maleficent wasn’t wearing the outfit that she wore later constantly. An outfit eerily similar to one worn on a popular movie by Angelina Jolie. 

The list goes on and on and on. Back then the characters had originality written all over them. From their looks to their essence. This. This has none of that originality. It’s a copy-paste lazy method of catering to the nostalgia and demographics that react to anything flashy like a squirrel to shiny things. 

What you see there, on that promo is a lie. It’s the same lie we saw on 4A poster, only this time it’s more obviously worse looking with less effort put in. 

I wish we could get something new and interesting, refreshing and daring, a subtly clever re-tooling of the familiar setting, but alas… That is not what this show is about anymore. 

My face when the Sherlock fandom tries to use legit science and maths to determine if Sherlock was able to land in the lorry from the distance and time given.

My face when they forget the fact that Sherlock would have to either climb out and then roll or roll out of the lorry straight away and then keep going for several feet, pour the fake blood, and then position himself before any of the paramedics or John got to him.

My face when they take what is more than likely an editing mistake as a serious clue.
