but so glad it's over with

anonymous asked:

I'm the anon about WD spinoff. First I'd like to say thanks for asking why I was unhappy with it and this might seem like a rant than a counter argument. So it's basically a female version of Supernatural. But why does Rhodes get a spinoff? I have nothing against Kim but ever since she said they'd have to recast Jody if they kill her my attitude changed forwards her. We’ve had far better female fan favorites come over the years. And I don't really care for any of the WD characters.

(2/3) Supernatural is also a show that doesn’t warrant a spinoff. It is its own entity. I’m glad they’re giving the fans what they want but honestly that’s all it is is fan service. I don’t see this show lasting a long time if at all. Charlie and Eileen were my last favorites and they got butchered for plot. But these guys get a spinoff. Basically my unhappiness is due to bitterness. I also like to point out I’m all for female empowerment. Girls kick ass.

(3/3) I’m done I just like to thank you again for hearing me out or putting up with my rant.


So you’re right about that– the new show is just a fanservice, but I don’t really see that as a bad thing. And you have to look at it from the creators’ perspective. They are constantly getting accused of not doing what the fans are asking for (and rightfully so) – they’re not involving the relationships that the fans want, they’re not keeping the female characters or diverse characters that the fans love, and they’re always bringing it back to the brothers, while excluding other characters that are just as much series regulars as Jared and Jensen. So instead of altering the original series, they are creating something new.  Now that may be taking a route that isn’t really necessary– making this spin-off  is excessive,  but they’re at least trying to do something for the fans who are getting upset that the original show is not making these desired changes, and I for one,  am counting that as a win. 

Perhaps the creators are doing this because they have a vision for what they want Supernatural to be, and it doesn’t matter if the fans agree with it or not, they just want to bring their vision to fruition,  so none of those changes really work for them. It might suck, but that’s their right as the show runners.  In any case,  the spinoff is an attempt to soften that blow. Supernatural is its own entity,  as you said, but that doesn’t mean we can’t have more.

And I think for the same reason that you lost respect for Kim, is also why she was cast in this leading role. That attitude of putting her foot down and saying she will not return to a show that kills off her character may come off as harsh to some, but if you look at it from her point of view, she is taking the stand for the person that she’s been representing. There is no reason to kill off Jody, and Kim is making that very clear by saying she will refuse to act on Supernatural anymore if they try to hurt her character.

Jody also makes sense as a lead for this spinoff since she has been on the show for the longest out of any of these other female characters. She has been made into this adoptive mother, and all the other surviving women on Supernatural have been somehow connected to her. She is the bond that links everyone else to the main plot line of Supernatural, so it makes sense that she would be the bridge to something new, apart from the original show.

 And yes, this may just become a “female Supernatural”, but if it really is a attempt at fanservice, and they really are listening to us, then hopefully they will take this opportunity to start doing the things the fans have asked for.  After all, they have made money and created a substantial name and created longevity for themselves by focusing their attentions on the “Supernatural Family”, so this new show should focus on that as well if they want to ensure that it stays on the air. 

Of course, they could still mess it all up and be stupid and make stupid choices … but right now, I’m trying to be optimistic and hope for the best. Obviously you can have whatever view on it that you choose and I completely understand the ones that you’ve expressed. I am very bitter as well, but I’m still hopeful that this spinoff will be everything that I want it to be.

Thank you for explaining your opinions and I respect your thoughts.  Feel free to share them with me any time.

To new, inexperienced drivers:

so idk if they teach you this in drivers’ ed class or whatever, but if you see someone in the opposite direction flashing their high beams at you, they’re NOT being a dick. they’re saying, “SLOW DOWN, I just saw a police car back there”.


If I hadn’t known that today, I wouldn’t have noticed the police car hiding in its fox hole and gotten a ticket for going 20 over the speed limit. and I’m glad I don’t have to pay $80 for a dumb mistake!!!

[EDIT!!!] I am in no way advocating people who speed on purpose. you stop that!!! Always try to follow the speed limit! But some people can get a little distracted so it’s nice to have a reminder to check your speed.

“Here,” John says almost as soon as Sherlock’s settled next to him. “I wanted to give you something special today. Something important. And I, uh, I think it is.” He says it with a little shrug, a tiny bit of doubt creeping in.

“It is,” Sherlock reassures him, and John huffs out a laugh.

“You don’t even know what it is yet.”

My thoughts on ‘Tales From The Yawning Portal’

I received my advance copy of @dndwizards​’s new book Tales from the Yawning Portal not quite a week ago. If you haven’t heard of this book here’s the gist of it:

TftYP is a collection of seven ‘classic’ dungeon adventures from D&D editions past, all updated with fifth edition rules. In this book you get…

  • Against the Giants (AD&D)
  • Dead in Thay (D&D Next)
  • Forge of Fury (D&D 3e)
  • Hidden Shrine of Tamoachan (AD&D)
  • The Sunless Citadel (D&D 3e)
  • Tomb of Horrors (AD&D)
  • White Plume Mountain (AD&D)

All of the maps and layout have been updated to make them easier on the eyes, while their traps, monsters, structure, and challenges remains largely unchanged. TftYP is a ‘best of’ book, rather than a remake or reboot of these adventures.

If you’re a millennial who got into D&D through things like Acquisitions Inc, The Adventure Zone, or Critical Role, my take on this book is gonna be of interest to you…because this book might be specifically FOR YOU.

Part of me is like “Jean Valjean is the main character of Les Miserables and that’s very important and maybe the miniseries will remind people of that” and part of me is like “listen. I literally only care about Les Amis and would watch six hours just of Enjolras and Grantaire sitting in the same room doing nothing” so I’m a little conflicted

  • Leo: "omg wHO WAS THAT GIRL ON the train she wAS SO fuckN HOT SHES MY SOULMATE I SWEAR"
  • Virgo: "uh-oh i still haven't started that assignment and it's due 90 years omg im SO LATE"

and it’s like…………………………. objectively i cant begin to comprehend what youre getting that excited about but glad youre having fun

Summary: Professor Stilinski is definitely not expecting to see his favorite porn star among the students of his Human Sexuality class.

Notes: Inspired by this ask. I don’t do power imbalance, so nothing happens until Derek is out of Stiles’ class. Also, while there are mentions of porn, there is no actual smut in this. Sorry. (On AO3)

@nogitsunelichen and @cobrilee – this is probably not what you had in mind, but I wrote it!


When Stiles pushes open the doors to the lecture hall, it’s completely empty. He blinks down at his watch in surprise, and realizes he made the walk across campus faster than he realized. There’s always an adjustment period at the beginning of every semester, where he figures out where his classrooms are and how long it’ll take to get there.

Well, he might as well utilize this time, then. He sits at the desk at the front of the room, and gets back to writing his proposal for a class on the influence of society on gender.

He gradually hears students come in as he works, but he keeps focused, because he knows he has at least another ten minutes before class starts.

But when he hears a student ask, “Hey, are you the professor?” he has to look up, and he begins to wish he’d done it a lot sooner.
