The thing I loved about the DVD commentaries from Dawson’s Creek was that the producer would say things like, “this story did not work out.” “We screwed this up.” I wish more TPTB would do that. Granted, all of that is probably easier given that the show was over.

chrisodonline said: I never really watched ‘Dawson’s Creek,’ but the “actor teeth” comment made me laugh.

Paget Brewster (from Criminal Minds) posted an instagram of herself at the dentist saying she was getting her actor teeth done. Which is where I got it from! 


There ya go. (Also, Katie Holmes aka Joey does not at all have her actor teeth yet.)

I miss TWOP so much right now, I really want to read ahead and find out what happens in this episode. I remember basics, but you know. When your memory is basically “Dawson’s a complete ass.” (Oh, it was not the plot I was thinking. PS Dawson was a complete ass.)

dawson’s s1 overview:

I remembered the show was sexist and Dawson was a douche but WOW, I was not prepared for how very very illustrative of rape culture the first season was. Or that Dawson was such a budding meninist.

Also, ugh, Pacey’s horrible haircut. And I’ve realized that what bugs about Jen is that her brows seem overplucked. This is important stuff. I can look past the horrible clothes, but really, brows are so important.

Anyone surprised I’m reading a 85k epic Dawson’s Creek story? Really?

(p.s. it’s also HIATUS fic. Beautiful not what the show did hiatus fic. I told you I loved the stuff.) 

Here we are at ep 7. Foreshadowing a plenty while Joey and Dawson argue and Dawson states a disturbingly close to MRA ideal of how women are and the foreshadowing is that Dawson says you don’t see me and Pacey fighting over a girl!

Cause you’d lose, loser.

Hey, Dawson SMOOOOOTH MOOOVE calling the woman you are attracted to the OBJECT of your desire. I mean, you don’t realize it, and I don’t think the show does, but people should not be objects to you.

For real, Pacey, this is called abuse. Also, I think it’s your awful hair that makes me think your eyebrows need more grooming.

It’s not ABSURD it should be PUNISHABLE he is FIFTEEN. She is taking responsibility because YOU ARE A FUCKING CHILD PACEY and the way you keep talking makes it clear YOU ARE FIFTEEN.

PACEY you are fifteen how do you even know you are not good with girls?

OMG Pacey hello this is ABUSE. If you were Pacey short for Paisley and played by Katie Holmes being kissed by an older actor I like to think even in 1998 it would not have been seen as good.

Though, for real, using Wuthering Heights to gaslight the minor you’re interested in abusing is … something.

Thank goodness, by the second episode the boys are all wearing cargo shorts.
