don't be afraid to show your color

  • Aries: You'll be as bright as the sun and make the most difficult choices in your life soon. Chin up, spit the blood, and fight for your beliefs.
  • Cancer: Maybe things seem pretty rough right now. Think about what you want for the long run, maybe it's not what you want now. Where are you in 10 years?
  • Taurus: You're always so nervous and tedious about your work. You know what? If you're trying to impress something or someone to get what you want, maybe it's not for you. Because if you're not doing what you love to impress people, screw that. Do what you want.
  • Gemini: Oh boy. You have no idea. You have such big dreams and so little time. Go with what you want and don't let anybody get in the way of it. You're really never late to anything. There's time, just a limited amount.
  • Leo: Summer down, maybe your dream when you were little won't work. Maybe it will, who knows? The thing is, don't live your life in solitude, find someone to adventure with and show your colors.
  • Virgo: My dear, don't be afraid of society's rules, they're meant to be broken. Prove your point. Be an example. Break the glass.
  • Libra: You've been told what to do and how to do it for too long. Stop obeying and start pioneering your own future. Dream for yourself.
  • Scorpio: You think you have it all figured out don't you? Just know that life throws curveballs all the time. Be ready for anything darling.
  • Sagittarius: Maybe you don't know. Maybe you know. You're in the dark yet you see light. I promise it will become clear for you one day when you probably least expect it.
  • Capricorn: You're ambitious but not supported. I'm sorry. Put yourself in a healthy group of people and environment and you'll grow as fast as time passes.
  • Aquarius: You can not see the future and there are things you won't be able to predict. Stop trying so hard and let go. You'll find your success elsewhere. Don't expect a pretty platter of success to be handed to you.
  • Pisces: You fall but you need to get back up. Don't loose sight of what's important to you and your journey. You've grown so much in this period of time. Keep it up and success will be great.

Hi Lou! I loved your very long response about not borrowing trouble. I think the issue since 4B is fans don't trust the writers now. Even the ultra positive fans are tempering expectations (I saw jbuffy respond to a blog comment on how S wears red on their dates with "well F doesn't own the color red" - even though she's written metas on that color!). I think the trick is to follow your advice: don't borrow trouble, don't think you write the show, but don't be afraid to call it out when it's bad

Well, I don’t think @jbuffyangel was backing away from her certainty about Olicity with that comment, anymore than I am, Nonnie. I don’t think Jen and I could be more sold on an Olicity reunion if we were holding the script in our hands. But some people do pick up thematic things she points out and then try to apply it with a teeth grinding zeal that it isn’t really meant to be. Like the colour thing. It’s fun to notice little things and put together a thread of thought around it, but some people then take it as some kind of code of practice that Arrow is using to drive their narrative. 

It happens to me as well with some of the stuff I say. People want to turn observations and generalisations into some kind of system for working out exactly how everything is going to go down. That’s what Jen was trying to back away from. Again, I’m not a fan of speaking for others, but I don’t see Jen tempering anything other than the pacing of everything, which we always temper because, you know, it’s Arrow. It’s more like don’t let colours overtake the actual narrative. Or timing of events in episodes. Or directors. The best indication of what is going on with the show is the actual show. 

Which circles me back round to what you were saying about what I was saying, Nonnie. lol Trying to get ahead of the writers is not to be recommended if you can’t have fun with it. If all your specs are horrible and negative and it makes you feel hopeless, then perhaps that’s not the best use of your time. If speccing isn’t fun, then stop. That’s my motto. Whether you spec or not, the same things will happen on Arrow. And definitely, if you’re not enjoying the show, then take the right actions for you to sort that out. :)

Can I just say here that this whole Blackout thing was absolutely fucking incredible. I’ve never seen so many beautiful and amazing selfies on my dash as I did today. Holy buckets. Where have you guys been? Please feel free to flood the internet with your pretty faces more often. You don’t need a special day to do that. Wow. <3
