do you think alicia is still alive

Essays in Existentialism: FtWD IV

In the dark, there is nothing to see on the water. The sky melds into the ocean and the stars jump from the heavens to the sea, skinny dipping with reckless abandon and no reverence at all for the inevitable eyes upon them. The glow of the lights, the small amount of lantern glow, of solar-powered flashlights, of candles whimpering in the breeze, they all create a dome, create a universe that is impossible to truly gaze out from honestly.

In all absolute seriousness, I love Alycia Debnam-Carey to death and I will support her in every project she’s a part of and I wish her nothing but the best.

But it really ticks me (and others, apparently) off that one of the main reasons she was free to do FT/WD is because The 100 didn’t have the sense to see how brilliant the character of Lexa was and book her with a long-term contract. She could be playing Lexa right now. But instead she’s playing a character that, while I enjoy it simply because it’s ADC in the role, it’s just… BLEH!

Alicia (at least the ADC version) wouldn’t exist if Lexa were still alive. And given the choice between the two, who do you think we’d take? If Jason and Co had any kind of business or storytelling sense, they would have signed Alycia. But nope. And that pisses me off. That we lost Lexa, one of the best characters I’ve ever seen on TV, and instead we have… not Lexa.
