fave random character to show up

I’m gonna actually lose my mind with this fandom one day. 

2x7 was a monstrous fuck up all around as far as malec is concerned. They literally faded to black on their first time just after Magnus expressed a very real concern and vulnerability that was literally pushed aside because Alec really wanted it so Magnus shouldn’t worry- I’m not faulting characters here, this is strictly about writing and editing. 

When LGBTQ fans and genuine allies rightfully called the show out for this- especially the fact that the same episode literally had Jace and a random seelie rolling around half naked in a bed, in Magnus’ loft as a matter of fact- some fans, mostly straight, tried to say all we wanted was to see our faves naked and that we needed to shut up about it. They kissed, we knew they had sex, asking for more was clearly because we were perverts and wanted smut.

But what might actually be worse at this point than straight fans telling us we have no right to be angry and that we’re just perverts is these random few LGBTQ, and also straight, fans who are saying we shouldn’t and won’t have intimate malec scenes because straight girls will fetishize them. First all off, straight fans, shut the fuck up. We don’t need you to explain to us how often and in what ways we are fucking fetishized. We live with it. My fellow LGBTQ fans who have expressed this opinion- what the actual fuck? So because some random straight girls might fetishize it we shouldn’t want, and should stop demanding, intimate scenes between the main LGBTQ canon couple? I really don’t care. We deserve those kinds of scenes. Those scenes should be as normal as het sex scenes and scenes with heterosexual intimacy. 

Like I’m honestly… what the fuck. Like how many different ways do LGBTQ fans need to be silenced when all we’re asking for is equal fucking representation?!

Your nice but of snark beneath Emma's picture in the finale review was fun... but also kind of true. OUAT has been on a steadily downward curve for some time and plummeted in the last few seasons, that's a given. Many people blame it on the ships; I blame it on the overly convoluted plots that strangled the characters, which were the main focus in S1. Ships got so much focus because that simply was what they could focus the characters on with the little time that was left. Any thoughts on that?

I think OUAT’s One Big Problem is that they can’t stick the landings on their character arcs because they’re trying to smoosh everybody together into one plot. The show routinely shoves its characters aside to try and create “suspense” through people frantically looking for Random Magical Doodads right up until the finales– but we’re not here for the Dollar Store Glitterpalooza Extras, we’re here for the characters. The doodads only matter as a pretext for getting our faves to have some sort of emotional change and interact with others; it’s the character’s emotional payoff we’re after, and it’s that payoff that the show has trouble executing during the finales and that’s led to the show’s creative downfall.

The Doodad Dilemma ™ first appeared in early S2, where the first third of the show was everyone in FTL running around after a series of Lucky Charms side-quests (magic beans! wardrobe dust! magic compasses! squid ink! hearts! etc.). But of course nobody gives a shit about “sparkly dirt,” as Hook so eloquently put it– we only care about the subsequent Hook vs. Cora subplot; we don’t care about a compass, we only care about how Mulan is willing to fight her friends to save Aurora.

What did the compass do again? (No, don’t tell me.)

At its best, the show uses these magical props as a device to link the FTL flashbacks and modern-day Storybrooke scenes together, while showing how the characters are changing. For instance, in S2 “The Queen is Dead,” the Death-swapsies Candle was symbolic for Young!Snow’s innocence, the Mills vs. Snow family vendetta through multiple generations, and how Modern!Snow failed the moral test that her younger self passed. When Modern!Snow picked up the candle in Gold’s shop I let out a little gasp because I was shocked Snow was going to whack Cora by proxy. The candle by itself is nothing– how it symbolized Snow’s dark side is what’s important.

  • interactions i enjoyed the most Joan and Kitty. I just…they were just adorable and I loved their interactions together.
  • the character who scares me the most I don’t think there is one, at least from what I’ve seen of S1 and S3.
  • the character who is mostly like me Marcus
  • hottest looks character Joan. Second runner up is Jamie.
  • one thing i dislike about my fave character Joan doesn’t seem to show emotion much, which I know other people have noted changed more in the most recent season, so I can’t wait to catch up on seasons 4 and 5 to see it for myself.
  • one thing i like about my hated character I cannot think of one damn thing I like of Mycroft in the random eps I’ve seen of his. His accent, I guess?
  • a quote or scene that haunts me As much as I love Jamie, it’s the scene when Sherlock realizes she removed the mole when she’s undressing and changing into the new clothes. Like, it was such a tiny detail in her game but for him it was huge and it just broke my heart how much it hurt him that she did that. And then the reveal? Poor guy.
  • a death that left me indifferent I think, in a way, Moran’s? Like, I felt bad for Sherlock not being able to stop it but like…it didn’t feel like an important one to me?
  • a character i wish died but didn’t I don’t remember his name because I haven’t seen the arc in a while, but Stuart Townsend’s character. Like, I know why they didn’t kill him but damn it, I wanted him mutilated, murdered, burnt to a crisp and have it all not done by Kitty.
  • my ship that never sailed I still staunchly support there being more Jamie/Joan interaction. ::nods::

my favorite thing about comic books, at least in DC and Marvel, that other media just doesn’t have, is that since all the stories exist in the same universe you can be reading a comic about one character and others you love suddenly show up and there’s nothing that makes me happier than unexpectedly seeing my faves, random team-ups I never though would occur, there are so many possibilities and dynamics, it’s crossover paradise and I love it
