it would be only ep in season 4 that i would be watching

sacchariwrites  asked:

Are you going to tell us now how you changed the story after you saw episode 10? You said you had to go back and re-outline the whole thing. I am interested in knowing how it differs.

i’m sorry if someone has already asked you this but can you share with us the original plan you had for umfb before episode 10? or can you not tell us until after the companion fic?


How Episode 10 Changed Everything (and other fun stories):

So as I’ve said a couple of times before, episode 10 was an absolute game changer for Until My Feet Bleed and My Heart Aches and now that the fic is finally done I’ll try and explain how although this may get a bit long and I wont go into too much detail about Viktor for companion fic reasons.

So the main three things that episode 10 changed in the fic was Viktor’s entire character, Yuuri as an unreliable narrator and the program music.

The most significant by far was Viktor’s character. Because pre episode 10 we really still didn’t know that much about Viktor and we had no idea about the banquet. So before episode 10 I assumed that Yuuri fell in love first and Viktor came to coach Yuuri out of curiosity because he likes surprises and doing something different and eventually and unexpectedly found himself falling in love. In a draft for another fic I was tossing ideas around for it actually centred on Viktor only realising he was in love with Yuuri just before the kiss in episode 7. Viktor was always very mysterious and I’m sure people who were in the fandom pre ep10 will remember all the theories that he was just using Yuuri and all that and while I didn’t believe that, I did assume that Viktor’s character trope was the ‘workaholic slowly learns how to love by being loved’ one.

But then episode 10 comes and completely knocks that out of the water because we find that Viktor is actually this adorable sappy romantic who calls Yuuri sleeping beauty and adores him and fell in love with him when he was wasted and dancing and brought life and love back into Viktor’s world. And that completely changed Viktor in the fic because after an episode from his pov I had a much better handle on his character and realised he absolutely wouldn’t act like he had been planned to act in the fic.

In the original plan he wasn’t ever a bad person or anything but he was actually a rival for Yuuri and he didn’t fall in love until much much later. But with episode 10 we also found out that Chris and Viktor are best buddies and Viktor likes skating with Chris and can’t imagine a season without him which means that in the fic there’s no way that Viktor would feel threatened by Yuuri as a rival because in canon he’s besties with his competitor and he’s way too much of a sweetheart for that. So in the fic it changed from Viktor reciprocating the rivalry to Viktor actually enjoying the challenge and excitement it brought into his life.

As for him falling in love, in chapter 10 the singing thing was always planned but that was originally the first sign that Viktor was starting to feel affection for Yuuri and was just the very beginning of him falling in love. It chapter 10! But after ep10 I realised that Viktor ‘love at first drunken dance’ Nikiforov would definitely not be having a solid two years of a ‘relationship’ and just be starting to fall because that would be seriously ooc and we finally saw just how much he adores Yuuri through his own eyes. And so in the fic I reworked the whole thing to fit with Viktor as a character as I now understood him and that included him falling first, falling hard and falling early.

Episode 10 also showed us just how much of an unreliable narrator Yuuri is, with the banquet and also how different everything seemed from Viktor’s eyes. And so that meant that I started to play with the idea of Yuuri being a seriously unreliable narrator and trying to tell a story where his version is very different to the version the audience see, which is obvious now pretty crucial to umfb&mha.

I also went back and reworked all the program music for the fic once episode 10 came out. Before it was all important and did have significance but after I knew that Viktor was going to fall early I decided to play around with the idea of showing the audience how he was feeling through his music. So I went back and completely changed the program music to tell a proper story (funny story, originally Yuuri was going to be the one skating to Sun and Moon. And then episode 10 happened and I looked at the new outline of the fic like ‘this is such a Viktor song oh my god).

Another thing that episode 10 changed was originally Chris wasn’t involved in the fic at all until we found out about his and Viktor’s friendship and that he’s actually such a bro not just a weird guy who gropes Yuuri and comes on the ice. As well as that, in episode 10 we also found out that Yuuri was actually the unknowing playboy in the Eros story not Viktor, coming into Viktor’s life, stealing his heart and then leaving without a word, which lead me adapting the fic to umfb!Yuuri becoming a perceived playboy by others through certain things that will be explored fully in the companion fic as a reference to that. There were also some smaller changes like the inclusion of the drunken Olympics and Yuuri knowing how to pole dance as a shout out to the episode.

Episode 12 also changed a lot. One of the things was Yurio and his role in the fic and how he feels about Yuuri which will be explored more in the companion fic. Also the original end of the fic was that Yuuri was going to try and fail to do the quad flip which ruins an otherwise perfect skate and potentially loses him the gold but he was willing to sacrifice it to tell Viktor. But in episode 12 we see that Yuuri can do a quad flip with his love for Viktor as motivation so it changed to Yuuri still potentially ruining his skate because he isn’t sure if he can land the jump but doing it anyway and actually succeeding because every time he tried and failed before it was because he was doing it out of bitterness trying to beat Viktor and this time he was doing it out of love.

The fic also changed a lot over the course of writing it just because characters take on a life of their own and my first draft was very rough and done before I’d written anything so I’ll try and do a chapter by chapter run down of the big changes from the rough plan I wrote before starting the fic to the end result.

Chapter 4:

·       Phichit originally wasn’t a big part of the fic but that very quickly changed because it’s Phichit and he’s so damn important to Yuuri and such an amazing character so I added him in early and made his part much bigger

·       There was originally going to be a discussion between Viktor and Yuuri that went badly and they both ended up annoyed and offended which sparked Viktor’s side of the rivalry but there was no way to do that without making them both dicks and ooc and after episode 10 it changed to Viktor trying to be helpful but unreliable narrator Yuuri taking it wrong and cutting the conversation short

Chapter 6:

·       Yuuri was originally going to be watching interviews and stuff of Viktor and thinking how arrogant and self-assured he was but this changed with Viktor’s character change because that’s just not him

·       Viktor was going to make a comment about Yuuri’s quads but this one was actually going to be an insult and again changed when Viktor’s character changed

·       The idea for the dream sequence only came later

Chapter 7:

·       Pole dancing only became a thing after episode 10

·       Viktor was going to only miss the GPS and come back for Worlds but lose because he wasn’t fully recovered but I decided I didn’t want the first time Yuuri won against Viktor to be so unsatisfying

·       The watching Yuuri skate at the rink didn’t originally happen at this point in the fic until after I saw ep 10

Chapter 8:

·       Yuuri never lost motivation originally but I decided at that point it was important in his character to almost give up but then come back with a vengeance

·       The drunken Olympics never originally happened

·       They were both originally going to be drunk when they first slept together but that got thrown out almost immediately because consent is very important and there was no way I was going to write a scene where both of them were drunk and therefore couldn’t give proper consent.  Also it was important it wasn’t a drunken mistake but a deliberate choice.

·       Viktor getting drinks never happened, instead he was going to be treating Yuuri in a similar way to how Yuuri was treating him

Chapter 9:

·       Yuuri was originally still going to be very hostile before I realised it was ooc and a dick move after Viktor was being nice to him so it changed to him congratulating Viktor after Viktor won. That then changed the sex scene from the mutual hatefuck it was going to be pre ep10 to Yuuri and the comments thing that sent him spiralling. The not-talking thing was also added as a plot device because Viktor as he became acted very differently to him as he was originally planned to be and it would have been too easy if he had been allowed to talk.

·       Viktor was originally going to take Yuuri out to dinner at the WC purely out of guilt

·       There was originally going to be another sex scene after the WC and dinner where Yuuri was angry at Viktor for ruining his skate but it would be ooc for both of them and got changed early on

Chapter 10:

·       Number swap was supposed to be just for hooking up but changed after ep10

·       Yuuri’s theme was originally going to be something related to hatred but it changed as his character developed and I realised how he was being affected by the events of the fic was different to the plan and that would be doing him a disservice as a character

·       Viktor was still kind of being a bit of a dick and making snide comments during sex when Yuuri won which was changed when I rewrote Viktor as a character after ep10

·       Conversation with Phichit was very short and didn’t involve a lot of the stuff it did in the final chapter

·       Viktor was again going to be acting very different in the second sex scene with none of the need or desperation that happened which all came about during his character change

·       Conversation with Chris never happened until the third of four re-writes of ep10 when I realised Viktor’s actions needed some more context for people who were ignoring the music

Chapter 11:

·       Lots of sex was supposed to happen in this chapter before I changed it for plot reasons and also companion fic reasons

·       Sex scene was supposed to be all about Yuuri acting like Eros Yuuri but those two idiots in love were very sappy and sentimental instead and it became a crucial relationship shift point instead

·       All domesticness from that chapter was planned out later in the fic as the fic was being written not in the first plan, including the borscht scene

Chapter 12:

·       Meal with the other skaters never happened

·       The revel about Yuuri’s virginity never happened in the first plan. Then in the rough draft of the chapter it happened at the same time as the second reveal but I split them because it worked better that way

·       This was when Viktor was supposed to secretly watch Yuuri skating his routine

·       Yurio wasn’t originally involved at all and Yuuri left after getting jealous. The love revelation never happened

Chapter 13:

·       Yurio appeared in this chapter instead although the conversation was very different in the rough plan because everything he talks about in the final version came about after episode 10 changed everything

·       Yuuri was originally going to be much more angry at the scandal and used his anger to win while Viktor still fucked up his skate but this changed early when I realised it was ooc and Yuuri would actually react very differently and that emotional devastation and heartbreak would ruin his skate instead

Chapter 14:

·       None of the conversations with Yuuri’s family were planned in detail in the first rough plan, I just knew he needed to go back to Hasetsu and have some revelations

·       Yuuri was supposed to convince himself that Viktor never loved him and never could and only realised Viktor’s feelings after seeing stammi vicino. This changed because it was very important for Yuuri to go and get some distance and time and then decided to come back and decided to try again with Viktor before he saw stammi vicino. It also changed because with Viktor as he became after ep10 and how he reacted there was no way that Yuuri would convince himself that Viktor never cared for him. He’s a bit emotionally dense sometimes but not an idiot

·       Yuuri was going to fall on the quad flip

So yeah, all this is from the very rough draft before I wrote any of it and the story adapted and changed along the way as I got more into the characters and got a better handle on how they would act until it became what you see today. It definitely became a much better story and I’m very happy with all the changes that I made! Having a plan is great for a framework but letting the characters grow and change naturally during the writing process is much more fun and I think makes for a better story

Summer Anime 2016

This summer we have so many anime with an all-male cast, I was so happy I decided to to a rec/ranking/review/summary. Note: I only watch anime with mostly males I’m sorry it’s just what I like lol so this list may not match yours. (I cannot stand female leads - except maybe Gintama? - because they will escalate into romantic relationships and they annoy me to no end. It’s like the only purpose of females is romance and I hate that.) And a warning is that I’m kind of shallow so I normally look at the guys’ looks and then their character. But good character and relationship developments are definitely essential to me too.

1. Fukigen na Mononokean

I’ve rec it so many times I feel like I’m part of the official publicity comm but it’s really good :) My favourite character is Abeno cause he’s really adorable and tsundere (?) haha. If you like youkai, friendship and touching moments, do try this out!! It’s a little similar to Natsume Yuujinchou too.

2. Servamp

It looks really interesting so I watched it and when I saw the OP I screamed cause all-male cast! Compared to Spring 2016 this season does look more appealing to me. And I’ve ran out of anime with all bromance (other than sports anime) and no romance. So anyway for Servamp, Kuro was a really cute cat, and the setting seems interesting enough for me to chase. I feel like I might not like the main character as much though but we’ll see. 

3. Fudanshi Kokou Seikatsu

Ahh this is really cute I can relate so much to the main character as a Fujoshi myself :D and I can hardly find friends who can fangirl with me. It’s really sad to be embarrassed for liking gay ships ;n; The only bad thing about the series is that it’s too short each episode haha.

4. D.Gray-man Hallow

I’ve read the manga but didn’t understand most of it. Still, it’s likeable and I like Allen and Kanda. I felt like this season they beautified all the characters and Kanda definitely looks better with his new hairstyle/fringe :DD I hope they can animate most of the manga and I hope we can finally understand what is going on with the 14th.

5. Handa-kun

I just watched the 1st episode today and all I can is that it’s really good and hilarious omg. Only it’s too short with the first 9min trying to break the fourth wall and I couldn’t understand the humor at all. Still, the rest of the episode was worth it! Can’t wait for the rest!

jacquipoirier  asked:

was there any indication that hyde still loved jackie in season 8? i only was able to watch like 4 episodes and they werent in order. I think i just saw the first two, the valentines day ep and the finale.

I saw the first episode, the one where Jackie falls and gets super dirty and Hyde is like 3% nice to her, and the finale, so I’m not sure I can answer this as good as one can do. Except that I know for spoilers and conversations with my friends a few things.

Okay, let’s put on the heart eyes to talk about this shit. Here comes the long ass meta after the cut, pals!

Thoughts on the HTGAWM finale

…..okay, what the fuck.

• One of the first thing that struck me was when after Connor’ confession to being at the house the night of the fire, Laurel told him he should kill himself. Seriously?? That was so out of character! Laurel is grieving, Laurel is feeling miserable, and I will fight anyone who calls her annoying for dealing with such a horrendous loss, but pushing someone to suicide? Laurel Castillo would NEVER do that. Her mother was mentally ill for crying out loud, she knows what it’s like to struggle with depression and she never would have said those words, so already we’re off to a bad start from the writers. (It was also much more gut-wrenching since we knew from the opening scene Connor was actually suicidal.)

• Talking about Connor. I don’t know what to think. He made us all extremely angry over the past few eps with his attitude towards Wes but we’ve always known that to him, being self-destructive and making people hate him is a coping mechanism. It doesn’t excuse what he said, but it explains it and I still think he’s a redeemable character. Also for what happened when he found Wes, he seemed to have done his best and seeing him come clean about it was very poignant. Falahee’s acting was particularly impressive this episode.

• Oliver’s arc keeps on revolving solely around Connor lmao. I loved their dynamic in seasons 1 and 2, but season 3 was messy and they don’t seem to have fixed their issues. It’s sweet how much they care about each other, I was convinced by Oliver’s worry and I smiled at his proposal but it’s mostly thanks to the actors’ chemistry rather than the writing. Connor and Oliver “love” each other yes, but this finale felt like a cheat-way out of actually digging deep into their relationship troubles.

• I stay not caring about Asher. I’m sorry. I don’t like him. I don’t give a shit about Frank either. I was happy when he said “it should have been me, I know” because YES IT SHOULD HAVE

• Michaeala is such an interesting character. Weirdly enough, the whole struggle about the “i love you” didn’t bother me I didn’t think it took away from the gravity of the ep. I never complain about a look into Mic’s psyche. Although I don’t like her relationship with Asher.

• And now onto the real real issue I have with this episode. How they handled the Wes storyline. Fucking awful. That scene towards the end showing Wes crawling to the door and being caught by his murderer, overlapped with Annalise demonizing him and pinning everything on him? I was bawling my eyes out. How could they do him this dirty. He was good. He was kind. He was a gentle mentally ill black man who worked hard and was about to be a father. He deserved better than this. I had harvested the hope he would be revealed to be alive but. No. He wasn’t. He was murdered and he was slandered through his death, by the same woman who claimed to love him as a son. Another weird writing decision. We know Annalise can be ice cold and goal-oriented but would she really drag Wes through the mud after he died?! Even to protect the others? It ripped my heart out.

• I would like to say though that the reval of who killed Wes, it being a hitman employed by Laurel’s father and/or ADA Danver wasn’t the worst choice the writers could have made. I wouldn’t have accepted him being killed by another Keating5. Wes still deserved better though. Oh and Bonnie calling him a murderer was fucking rich lmao, she’s the only cold-blooded assassin of the group, second worst is Asher who literally ran Sinclair over with his car bc she was.. being mean? Wes only killed Sam because Sam was about to kill Rebecca and everyone still blamed him. I want to scream.

• The whole Charles was Wes’ father not Wallace???? What the hell? How old is this kid? Made no sense! Seemed like a plot twist for the sake of a plot twist.

• The baby plotline? Is Laurel going to keep it? I don’t know. I feel nothing. Except that that baby should have grown up with two parents. Also Laurel seems to be heading towards a dark direction judging by how she seemed ready to just shoot Charles Mahoney in the middle of the street?

• I don’t want to watch season 4 after what they did to Wes. But I want to see Dominic and Mr Castillo and ADA Danver rot in hell. Dilemma.


Tell me your thoughts! If you agree/disagree I would love to talk.

heycaam  asked:

So my question now is: do you think the nine-nine is getting shut? Idk is there is some info going around or not, but I really hope it doesn't shut down :(

listen my guy i absolutely do not think the nine nine is getting shut down, and let me tell you why

this next episode is kind of a random one in terms of season placement - we’re three eps in from returning from hiatus and there was only a two-episode intro/build-up to this shut down. one was the mid-season premier that was actually primarily focused on the lead romance within the series - not so much on the threat of the shut-down - and the second honestly felt a bit like a filler episode? the shut-down wasn’t even the a-plot of that ep, it was once again primarily focused on developing a friendship within the show with the shut-down staying in the b- and c-plots

i just feel like if the nine-nine getting shut down was going to be the Big Plot Twist of this season, they would have dragged it out a LOT more. i mean there wasn’t a lot of buildup for the season 1 finale but frankly they were kind of afraid to do story arcs back then, and still weren’t super comfortable with it in season 2, but in season 3 we knew who pimento was and we knew where he came from for WEEKS leading up to the finale, which built up and built up into this big explosive cliffhanger. i think i remember either listening to or watching an interview that either mike schur or dan goor did about b99 where he talked about experimenting with story arcs in season 3, liking the results, and planning on doing similar things in season 4.

my current working theory is that the paperwork goes through and the nine-nine is chosen to be shut down. everyone kind of goes into “panic” mode - jake and charles desperately trying to tick every item on a case bucket list off together and terry freaking out over mr. nine nine (and subsequently rosa and gina throwing themselves into making terry feel better) and hitchcock and scully doing…….god knows what - EXCEPT holt and amy. i think amy initially wants to take advantage of the fact that she has very little time left with holt, and therefore goes in under the guise of wanting some last-minute mentoring, but whatever storyline they get is going to lead to them inadvertently saving the nine nine. i mean, look at this picture from the preview:

everyone is clearly shocked, with the exception of holt. terry and scully even look like they’re both about to start cheering (and if u wanna get real crazed theorist on it, u can even see charles’ hand on the other side of jake and he’s doing that thing he does when he gets excited, that like hand-shaky thing, kinda like this:

Originally posted by grahamewill

……..anyways)

i think that’s a still from the moment after holt tells the squad that the nine nine isn’t going to be shut down after all thanks to [insert whatever super helpful thing amy does in this ep] and amy will get a chance to BEAM WITH PRIDE at holt and i’ll get a chance to die in a hole because i love her so much

all of this to say, i don’t think the nine-nine being shut down is the big twist. it would send all the characters in different directions and that’s messy to do in the middle of a series. if this was the last season, yeah, it would be pretty likely, but since they’re currently operating under the impression that fox is going to give them a fifth season (@FOX I’M WAITING?????????) i would honestly be extremely shocked if they shut the nine nine down. i DO think this might serve as a catalyst for whatever the real Big Plot Twist is going to be - but more on that in the next ask i’m about to answer!!!

Mary is the Biggest Mystery on Sherlock

We first meet Mary Morstan at the very beginning of Series 3. Sherlock is still dead, and John is preparing to get married. Although she was a major character throughout Series 3 and 4, we still know almost nothing about her history.

Sure, we don’t know much of anything about Molly, Lestrade, or Mrs. Hudson, either.

BUT… their history hasn’t been a major plot point in the show. Mary’s history – Mary’s story – has been THE major plot point throughout series 3 and into series 4. 

And that plot has never been resolved. We don’t know who she is, where she came from, or how (or more importantly, why) she ended up living in London, working as a nurse for Sherlock Holmes’ best friend.

The show has given us very blunt reminders that we do not know anything about Mary. 

We’ve been shown an AGRA flash drive twice now. A flash drive that contains everything there is to know about Mary. The woman who married John and who shot Sherlock without hesitation. The first time, no one looked at it and John burned it. The second time, Sherlock “glanced at it,” but wanted to hear the story from Mary herself. Mary tells Sherlock the bare minimum and then knocks him out with a soporific she apparently borrowed from Vastra (that was a reference to The Name of the Doctor, FYI). The AGRA drive, although now bugged, is never seen or mentioned again.

Why should we care? 

Because everyone in Sherlock’s world has trust issues. John does. Sherlock does. Mycroft does. 

But when it comes to Mary - no one has any trouble trusting her. 

Remember when we first met Mycroft? He put on a big scary show of his power for John. He even read quotes from John’s therapist’s session notes. This took place one day after John met Sherlock. In the span of a single day, Mycroft not only found out that John was moving in with Sherlock, but deeply researched his history and even had John’s therapist’s notes in his possession. 

But research on Mary? It appears Mycroft just didn’t bother to do any. 

Although … The Study in Pink was quite a few years ago. Maybe Mycroft isn’t keeping as close of a watch on John and Sherlock as he used to? 

Well, no. Mycroft is still keeping a very close watch on John. Granted, Mycroft likely anticipated that Sherlock would want to see John as soon as he got back to London, so he probably checked on where John would be that evening. I doubt that Mycroft makes sure that he knows where John plans to be every night… but still. We know that Mycroft is continuing to watch John. So why isn’t he watching John’s soon-to-be-fiance? 

Well… perhaps he did check into her history. Mary is a “retired super spy with a terrifying skill set.” Maybe her false persona was really well constructed, and Mycroft was fooled. Or maybe he wasn’t that interested in her, so he didn’t dig quite far enough to find anything suspicious.  

As it turns out, Mary’s cover wasn’t very good. Sherlock managed to find the source of Mary’s identity in less than a day, apparently without Mycroft’s help. And he did this while running around London planning his ambush of Mary for John. Oh, and he had just been shot. In the chest. And almost died. 

So… it doesn’t seem as though Mary had an airtight fake identity. 

So what is going on here? Is Mary just a big plot-hole? Is this just shoddy writing?

I don’t think Mary is a plot-hole. 

Sherlock’s initial deductions of Mary were a storm of trouble. 

“Liar” is the one that everyone remembers (because of HLV), but some of my favorites are “cat lover,” “shortsighted,” “only child,” “12,” and, “secret tattoo” (12 is shown alone and as “Size 12”). There are quite a few others, but these ones have not been explained.

That storm of deductions does not suggest that Sherlock was fooled by Mary. She’s a shortsighted only child, but we never see her wear glasses and she claims to be an orphan. She’s a liar, she disillusioned, she’s a linguist, and she’s a nurse? 

Of course, Sherlock doesn’t follow up on any of this. He just… ignores all of these warning signs? He immediately trusts this woman whom he just met and whom he knows is a liar? Seems… unlikely. 

Of course, nothing in the deduction storm directly suggests that Mary is dangerous, so maybe Sherlock knew she was lying about her past, but let it go because he didn’t think she was dangerous? 

Well, no. 

Sherlock definitely believed that John was in danger. John is in so much danger that Sherlock actually comes back from the dead to save him. 

His solution to that danger? Take down Charles Augustus Magnussen. Because he was the threat, right? He had info on people that would want to see Mary dead. That would put John in danger, so it makes sense, right? 

Not really. 

Sherlock describes Mary shooting him as “surgery.” But was it really? 

According to Sherlock, Mary shot him, knocked out Magnussen, and then immediately called an ambulance. Sherlock still nearly died. From the look of things, Mary shot Sherlock in the liver. And the show was accurate - the biggest risk of death from a liver shot is bleeding to death. 

I don’t think Mary necessarily wanted to kill Sherlock, but I also don’t think she shot him where she did in order to make sure he lived. I think she shot Sherlock in the liver because 1) it would look like a kill shot to Magnussen (he was shot in the chest and was on the ground convulsing within seconds), 2) there would be a lot of blood, and 3) Sherlock might not die. 

In other words, I think Mary’s priority was making Magnussen believe that she would kill Sherlock to protect her secrets. That wouldn’t work if she shot Sherlock in the shoulder or the arm. She had to shoot him in a place that could very likely prove fatal. If Sherlock lived, that was just a bit of good luck. 

So… Sherlock knows John is in definitely in danger and he definitely knows Mary is dangerous.  What does Sherlock do? He creates an overly complicated plan to pretend to sell Mycroft’s laptop to Magnussen in exchange for a look at the Appledore vaults. A plan that requires drugging his entire family. 

That plan fails because -surprise!- Magnussen has a mind palace. No vaults. 

Sherlock’s solution to that problem? Murder Magnussen in front of about twenty witnesses. That seems like a pretty severe approach, but whatever. It worked. Sherlock is just really lucky John remembered to bring his gun.  

Yeah, I’m not buying any of this. 

I’ll add my theories on what is actually happening shortly. 

About Yoi ep 1 (while knowing what happened at ep 10,11,12)


EDIT: Added more things thanks to the last eps! 

All of this has spoilers so read with caution.

Hello everyone! Let’s talk about the chronological events of Yuri on Ice because we now know that Viktor was in love with Yuuri since the GPF gala everything in the anime has a new way to be seen. All of this is what information the episode one has given to us.

First, the order of dates in the chart are based on the actual figure skate season (of this season irl in specific) and dates told inside the anime. This in order to have a better idea on when each event is happening.

Thanks to Yuuri’s very brief and concise explanation of things we get what happened in his skate season till March (the day he got back to Hasetsu).

HC - Serena’s storyline

This may seem like an unpopular opinion, but I’ll let folks make up their own minds on the issue, regarding the current Serena storyline. All are valid points/concerns. This ended up being a lot more wordy than I thought when I started writing, so bear with me. :D

1. Part of it was designing a storyline that could take them to a point where they could cover Catherine’s three month sabbatical for the duration of rehearsals and performances of the play she’s doing. There would need to be a significant reason for the character of Serena to require that much time away. It’s not like after Adrianne’s death (which to some extent was expected following repeated strokes and vascular dementia) where she only took a couple of weeks off. They’d already used the idea of a secondment that they’d used with Bernie last fall; it was unlikely that they’d go down that route again. I don’t believe that Simon and crew would have entrusted this kind of storyline with just anyone - they knew that it was something Catherine could dig her teeth into and do it justice, both with sensitivity and gusto. They also knew that Jemma as Bernie would continue to be that unwavering support and love that she has been giving. It’s a tremendously emotional storyline and as much as it pulls at the heartstrings, they want us to want to wrap them both up in swaddling blankets and keep them safe. We’ve become invested in their fictional lives.

2. Which brings me to the next part. If Serena had taken off more time post Ellie’s death, stayed at home longer to grieve, as by all rights she probably should have done, then we’d have had a lot less screen time for Serena. Grief affects people differently and perhaps Serena felt that staying at home all the time to grieve was driving her right up the wall. She has seemed over the past few years that work is her life - perhaps less so with the addition of Jason and Bernie to her life the past year - and so work is her fall-back point; that which she is usually comfortable to rely on. But this loss is quite different to the loss of her mother, or indeed to Arthur’s passing. So, if Serena had taken much more time off now, we’d not have seen how she handled her grief as it would have been done off-screen, and at home.

3. We’re going to have a three month gap of no Serena covering the length of time of Catherine’s sabbatical coming up before we know it; she’s on through some time in April, then off for three months, back mid-end July.

4. Many in the fandom have complained that a lot of the domesticity of Berena (along with other relationships, it has to be noted) is done off-screen. If we didn’t have this pretty accurate portrayal of someone’s grief after such a loss, I suspect there would be (and rightly so) many more complaints of ‘off-screen’ coverage of Serena’s loss, why didn’t we see more of what she was going through. It’s kind of a hard balance to maintain. So, whilst it is incredibly sad, and at times painful to watch, this is something we are seeing played out very well. Grief can be and often is uncomfortable to watch others go through, either in fiction or in real life.

5. Unlike shows like Greys Anatomy, where probably a quarter of storylines can be shown away from the hospital or bar (i.e.. the doctor’s homes), neither Casualty nor Holby City do that. It’s very much a rarity to show scenes away from hospital grounds/Albies. We did briefly see a bit of domesticity of Dom & Isaac at home - which as we can tell now was a precursor to how ‘nice’ Isaac was at the beginning and to establish how Jeckyl & Hyde his personality has been ever since. 

6. External sets: part of this could be budgeting (actually it’s more than likely a factor in comparison). Greys is now into its 13th season, and has about 24 episodes per season. Casualty, in it’s 31st season has 43-49 episodes per series, Holby City in its 19th series with 52 eps per series. They’re quite possibly limited to what kind/how many 'external’ (to hospital) sets they can re-use/repurpose.

There’s probably more to be said, but I think that’s it for now.

Cast

What I am expecting

1. Alot of bad ass women, and fighting their asses off

China White, Cupid and Liza Warner are quite a trio and I’m excited to watch them work together.

Also it looks like Dinah / Tina is going to tackle them head on and I’m expecting a lack of testosterone in this episode’s fights.

2. Green Arrow getting (almost?) arrested

Uh… didn’t we watch that one already? About two times?

In the promo this looks pretty serious but this is Arrow there’s no way the ACU or SCPD is going to arrest Green Arrow. What would that turn out to be

Don’t mind one bit, myself.

(this gif is just for my personal pleasure. Confused Puppy Mayor Queen is to adorable)

4. Green Arrow being hunted down by ACU and SCPD puts DA Adrian under the spot light.

Don’t mind not even one bit.

Still that makes me think that the “friendship” between Adrian and Oliver is going to grow a bit deeper.

(where did I saw this kind of friendship before? hum…)

Season 2 feels anyone?

5. Marc hinted that by the end of this episode we will know Prometheus has just been setting up the pieces on the chess board.

I made a post about how I felt like Arrow Writers, up untill now, were only getting all their chess pieces in place and only now are we going to watch the first move (post here). 

A few days later Marc gives this interview and I’m like

7. No Felicity. That’s right. Another episode without Felicity.

You know who would be pretty bad ass to join China White, Cupid and Liza?

Originally posted by kinneyandreedus

Brie Larvan. 

There’s a theory out there (can the creator of it please come forward because I really don’t recall who it was) that Brie is dead. 

Maybe so, but as this episode is concern I’m pretty sure Brie isn’t one of the escapees because that would bring Felicity into the storyline. And God forbide that would happen… so another episode where Felicity will be invisible to all other characters

8. Diggle kicking China White, Cupid and Liza Warner ass with Dinah/Tina back up.

So another ep where Diggle is more concern about the newbie than his friend in need.

If I could somehow pay to have one SU headcanon confirmed as canon

it would probably be “Pearl inherited leadership of the Crystal Gems from Rose, and verbally, in explicit terms, abdicated that role to Garnet.”

Here’s why:

1. It puts Garnet’s dynamism in the spotlight and gives her greater leeway to grow. The subtlety of the change Garnet has undergone over seasons 1-3 has drawn both praise and criticism. She’s under intense scrutiny both in-universe and metatextually: as the most stable (due to her essential nature) team member in the wake of Rose’s death, it falls to her to hold the family together as their relationships are rocked by grief and change, and as a Black-coded lesbian-coded character she’s held to so many bullshit double standards that she’s still drawn fandom wank even while providing wise and relatively unwavering support for Steven and the team. Saying that she was never supposed to be the leader doesn’t solve the second thing, but it ramps up the sympathy of the first–it gives the unbiased viewer a huge, concrete reason to say “cut her some slack!,” which means that her character can take more risks, make more mistakes, and be more relatable. It also makes the change she has undergone much more emotionally resonant in retrospect by giving us insight into the pressures placed on her: if Pearl asked her to do this because she knew Garnet would be more stable than herself, then she must remain stable at all costs, or she’s letting down a tremendous leap of faith on the part of someone she in all likelihood once looked up to.

2. It recontextualizes Pearl’s arc to consistently echo the show’s self-loving message. Here’s the thing: when you watch all the eps straight through without hiatuses or fandom discourse in between, it becomes pretty clear that Pearl’s character development is supposed to be more “fall of the team ace” than “purgatory of the team screwup.” But it does demand sympathetic assumption on the part of the viewer–the narrative, by virtue of Steven’s p.o.v., asks us to believe that Pearl’s done things right when it mattered in her life. IF the narrative were to explicitly show us/tell us about her making a responsible, conscious, swallow-pride decision about her own mental health, it would become clear that everything she does after that decision is done in a place of self-awareness and concern for the group. Simply put, it rebukes the notion that Pearl was ever selfish and replaces it with the notion that she was too selfless for too long. The moral of her story becomes an UNFLINCHING “don’t demand perfection from yourself while recovering from trauma, it’ll only bring out the worst in you”–a poignant, truthful, and necessary message. And, as an added bonus, one that could find intense parallels in Garnet’s arc! Which brings me to my next point:

3. It makes room in Pearl and Garnet’s dynamic for them to participate in each other’s healing and find common ground. A vivid reminder that Pearl is in fact the oldest and most experienced of the surviving Crystal Gems removes (for everyone, including Pearl herself) the expectation that Garnet must always, 100% of the time, be the wise and knowing guide for the rest of the team. I’m not saying Garnet shouldn’t be that, just that it shouldn’t be solely her responsibility–and sharing the role makes more space in the narrative for focus on Garnet’s needs. And what are Garnet’s needs? Well, the change she’s undergone so far has centered on her freedom to express herself under pressure, dealing with the anxiety of having to set an example, and the perceived need to prove the worthiness of her marginalized identity. Here’s the thing: Pearl has already gone through that, defying her preassigned role to fight in the war. But from Garnet’s perspective it’s always been a given that she was at Rose’s right hand–she’s probably never really thought about the similarities between their feelings, especially not now with their differences of experience driving such a wedge between them. The conclusion I’m taking this to is this: Garnet could use, and massively deserves, support, guidance, and care from Pearl in particular, and needs to know that SHE IS NOT ALONE. Pearl loves to draw on her rebel roots to build up the team, and has known and trusted Garnet for long enough to open up about her story–being a confidant and mentor to Garnet could be a way for her to get something positive out of her past. Not to mention the fact that A Leader relying on her for support again would help her stop slipping into old ideas of hierarchical valuation.

4. It shows Rose’s good intentions but also her short-sightedness. A confirmed switch in leadership just after Rose’s death reminds the fans of something they very easily forget: Rose had faith in Pearl, and Pearl built her identity on that. Please spare me your edgy theories about how Rose never existed and Pearl just made her up to cope with her loneliness for a second and take that as a given; none of her motivations make sense without that, the alternative is to just accept that Pearl is a badly-written character, which seems unlikely given that she’s one of the central group on a show full of well-written characters. However, the idea Pearl was left in charge in Rose’s absence highlights Rose’s largest character flaw: despite caring about and believing in the people around her, she didn’t understand them particularly well. For all her faith in Pearl’s ability to lead, she didn’t pick up on or take into account her self-doubt or the intensity of her grief. She also didn’t realize Garnet’s incredible potential as a leader, or take into account the team dynamic in her absence. Rose felt that what was so great about earthlings was that they changed; she says in “Greg the Babysitter” that she believes gems don’t change. But the Crystal Gems had changed since she first got to know them and continued to change once she was gone–it was this that escaped her notice.

Which brings me to the final point, and the one I’m going to let linger on you guys:

5. It means the first thing Pearl had to do after saying goodbye to Rose was contest Rose’s decision, possibly for the first time ever, and that has haunted her for the past 14 years.

I’m leaving the BBC Sherlock fandom

(Please read this while listening to Eurus’s theme for emotional effect)

Don’t get me wrong. I LOVE BBC SHERLOCK. I admired the clever writing, the dry humor, the way I saw how Sherlock thinks, the time when I felt intelligent, and last, but not the least, especially, the subtext Yes, the TJLC subtext gets me back all the time. All those Johnlock videos on youtube, Rebs TJLC explained series, TJLC on tumblr, on instagram, and pinterest. All were believers.

However, I just can’ deal with this bullshit anymore. Not even after I gave 1/29 a chance and put a deerstalker-shaped tinfoil hat on and donned it for two weeks. Most especially, after the TFP put up their middle fingers to our faces and made up a parody of their own show. A rip off. A James Bond/Shutter Island/Saw/The Ring show. And REALLY, REALLY AFTER THIS WHOLE BBC COMPLAINTS TEAM WAS BEING RUDE. I had hopes, excitement, and motivation to keep me going for 5 years after first seeing Sherlock. I am not part of the LGBT+ community, but I identified myself through Sherlock, I saw who I was, I found resemblance in my being/personality through him. Not wholly, but there 90% of the circumstances/things he did were the things/tasks/attitutde/personality I actually sported in real life. Believe me or not, this is not the time to debate. 

After TFP, I was so hopeful of coming fourth episode. It was just too fucky, too shitty, to be the last episode. However, after Moftiss mentioning the “This was never a love story” thing, and “Perhaps we took the joke too far”, I knew this show is already toxic for me. But no, I pushed. and pushed for a fourth episode. I made a complaint to the BBC one after Jan 15, TFP. It was about queerbaiting, about the plot holes, about the rape, about the weapons used in TFP, about the representation of “gay baddies” on the show. And all I got was the template answer of BBC. If you haven’t seen it, it’s here. 

Then, I saw Sue’s tweet, saying that there was no fourth episode, and Gatiss’s tweet saying “RIP” to a fan who said that she/he would die if there was no canon johnlock. There, I did not believe that yet. But now, one day before 1/29, I lost all my hope. All my hope for Martin’s statement “This is the gayest show”, Benedict’s statement on “Love conquers all”, BBC Three’s tweet on “Sherlock back and he’s in love. But with who”, Luke’s (The Sherlock reacts guy on youtube) statement on “The greatest love story never told” and “a fourth episode? That’s silly”, Moftiss’s statement on “This is the story we want to tell”. BBC’s statement on “Groundbreaking and making television history”. I’m all done with that. These were all lies. They feed on false hopes. Tomorrow is already 1/29, the johnlock anniversary. And we’re getting nothing. All those metas, speculations, analyses, they were really great. And I really appreciate all of those because they made me have hope, and made me believe in johnlock, once more. I want to thank all the meta - writers and those who made predictions based on the subtext and clues in the show. I CANNOT EXPRESS MY GRATITUDE ENOUGH FOR ALL OF YOU. You made me realize that there was still hope for the PLOT, and hope for the show to be saved. Because TFP just really killed the whole series. All that build-up, for SEVEN FRICKING YEARS, just to have an ugly, blown-up, messed, fucked-up ending.

The articles posted by the independent, vox, nerdist, I agree with them. All those gaping plotholes, and why the story is not good. It is better compared with other TV Series, but for character development, NAH. Then considering how rude some of those who comprise of the Sherlock team in answering the fans’ questions on twitter, it made me question this show. Yes, what would you do with a show which teaches you important values such as humanity, family, trust, bonds, friendship, valuing of life, when they won’t even demonstrate it to us? The fans were asking questions because they were searching for answers. They were curious. We were. We wanted a closure. Something that would say that this is really the END. No series 5, no loose threads, no cliffhangers, no possibility of episode 4. So we turned to them for answers for the questions we had regarding the show. I’m not one of those who tweeted/messaged them on twitter, but I saw how they reacted to the fans. That was just rude. Well, I’m sorry we tried fixing the mess you made in series 4??!?!!? I never asked/wondered why this show got the lowest ratings in rotten tomatoes compared to the past 3 seasons. We’re all about the cases, not the relationships. The relationships/character development will work out in the background (TJLC included of course, Molly’s becoming stronger character, esp). But season 4 was just all over the place. I thought then, that all these were illogical if it would not lead us to another episode to answer for all of these. We only got logic to help us. So far, nothing’s been confirmed. I’m losing hope. I lost hope. All we got is that stupid email. 

We were just seeking for closure, for understanding, for someone to comfort us during these difficult times, for someone to take our side from the BBC Sherlock team. No one dared to take our side. The show’s MOST LOYAL FANS were hurt, the LGBT fans community were hurt, and they would not even just say that they apologize. “I like to play with the homoeroticity between Holmes and Watson” just kept replaying in my mind. THAT’S STRAIGHT UP QUEERBAITING. “Who you really are doesn’t matter” THIS IS THE MOST HURTFUL THING EVER. What was the point of the whole TFP if it was about Sherlock discovering about his identity, his best friend, and his sister? What was the point of TAB, if it was not for equality? I’m sorry for all those who were offended, including me. I took the bait, I was definitely sure of it. I was friends with many people who are fans of the show. And hurt? No one can tell you when, how, or why you got hurt. It is a feeling. Every one can say that they are hurt, and they are allowed to express that. Hate comes after the hurt. It’s the anger inside that drives you towards hate. I love this show, indeed, but I had hated this season for many reasons. 

I’m not going to discuss the reasons here, instead, I’m just going to put my feelings through gifs (disclaimer: i don’t own the gifs) while I have been in this journey with you, fellow Sherlockians. 


Me while watching Series 4:


My family members and friends to me after watching TFP:

One-two days after Jan.15. I thought that was really it. No means of saving TFP and the mess that was eps 1 -2 of Series 4


Then I saw the TFHC (tinfoil hat club/tinfoil hat conspiracy) on tumblr and started to believe again:

Yes, that must be it. Apple Tree Yard is fricking fake!!!! I outsmarted this strategy of Moftiss!! HAH! Now give me the fourth episode!!!! “THE LOST SPECIAL”, YES, THAT ONE! 


And that Apple Tree Yard is definitely a FAKE SHOW. I waited for ATY like this: 

I was looking for answers. What made Sherlock so groundbreaking then? Making history? Amanda’s answer: Sian Brooke’s acting of different characters. Surely, this was done in other films/shows. So… now what if this ATY was a real show?

EVERYTHING JUST MADE PERFECT SENSE!!!!1/22 or 1/29 FIT THE PUZZLE! JOHN’S DREAM. CHEKHOV’S GUN, 3 GARRIDEB-CLIFFHANGERS, EVERYTHING! We were trying to make sense of everything that was nonsensical in TFP. It was clever, good. It was what we made of TFP.

But at least we still got 1/29, right? After 1/22 was a failed attempt of Moriarty hacking into the BBC? (because he has been hacking Picadilly circus, right?)

The bomb being the heart, and the analyses on TEH connections and all…

But then. One day before 1/29, everything just fell apart. I just couldn’t believe that BBC’s PR was not so …. good at doing their job??? PR? I mean…. 

That’s when I thought that this is ACTUALLY THE SHOW’S REICHENBACH. Probably, some higher ups in the Beebs requested this? Forced Moftiss to write something else? Make a parody? Cause they built this on something, definitely. 

Me right now:

I mean, why would they do something like this? They were award-winning writers, actors, production team, for fucking Pete’s sakes. Why won’t they just do it?? ??? Somebody will do a johnlock adaptation in the future (and you might just be one of them)

I wish I hadn’t believed in all their lies. Hadn’t read much into subtext. Hadn’t invested ALL MY FEELINGS, AND EMOTIONS INTO THIS SHOW. JUST TO BE THROWN AWAY. 

Yes, they told us all the fucking time. But still, the show speaks for itself. I don’t need anyone telling me that it’s not a love story when clearly, the show says it is!!!!! I wish I did not love this show. This show disgusts me. It disappoints me. I cared so much.

I think I’m going crazy. I dream about the show because of how often I spend my waking hours reading fanfics, metas, viewing drawings, art, rewatching and rewatching and rewatching and  rewatching and  rewatching and rewatching and  rewatching and rewatching this HELLA SHOW. 

I was JUST SO STUPID TO NOT HAVE LISTENED. TO NOT HAVE LISTENED TO THE WRITERS THEMSELVES. THEY ALREADY TOLD IT. 

Now, I only have my own to save. Not even BBC would take action and look into the mess they have made. Stop looking for closures, people. Stop looking for answers. You’ll never get one. 

THIS SHOW, BBC SHERLOCK, WHICH MOTIVATED ME AND DROVE ME TO MY AMBITIONS, WHICH GAVE ME THE KNOWLEDGE OF WHO I WAS!!!, AND DROVE ME TO BE BETTER,

JUST THREW ME AWAY. IT RAISED ITS MIDDLE FINGER AND TOLD ME TO GO FUCK SOMEWHERE ELSE. 

So here I am now, please help me.

Just. I dont know what i even want. 

I once thought that you were the best, most clever show I have watched. I was wrong. I was played for a fool. Trick. I gave you everything, BBC SHERLOCK, my time, talent, treasure, EVERY FUCKING THING, YOU TOOK ME FOR GRANTED.

SO, I’M SORRY SHERLOCK FANDOM. I’M JUST DONE. SORRY I LEFT YOU ALL. it was for my mental well-being. i’m sorry i had to leave you during this crisis. during these unfortunate times. I just can’t take it anymore.


I’m not leaving Sherlock. The story is still in my heart. I have read the original books, watched too many adaptations of Holmes and Watson for it not be part of me. It is part of me now. I’m just leaving BBC shithole Sherlock. And this will be me reading and telling the story to my grandchildren in the future. 


SO, DEAR MOFFAT, GATISS, VERTUE: 

MITJ Season 3

Okay so my post asking if anyone else watches MITJ got way more notes than I was thinking it would do and people have been asking my thoughts about certain things so here goes. Bare in mind I rarely post things like this - I could have posted like mad over the Gilmore Girls ending (Team Logan all the way incase anyone was wondering just check my feed and you’ll see that) but there’s so little MITJ on Tumblr so heres my thoughts.

I found season 3 different from the others for some reason and I can’t fully explain it. I binge watched seasons 1 and 2 beforehand so I remembered everything but something about the first few eps bugged me and that may be just down to noticing the lip syncing of Monica and telling she wasn’t singing. I’ve done film studies before so I have a very nasty habit of spotting every little detail like that which can ruin shows and movies for me. 

Moving beyond the lip syncing though and moving onto what we all are thinking - Rodrigo and Hailey! I have been waiting for this since the beginning and I love that this show isn’t solely focused on when will they get together even though it has been moving toward this for a while - coffee grounds anyone.

I absolutely adore their friendship and all the little moments that we have been given throughout the 30 episodes. I find those more telling in some ways than when you get big declarations and big scenes thrown in your face, that being said, their last scenes in episode 10 had me smiling like a loon, and constantly on repeat as well if I’m being honest.

I loved that Rodrigo could tell it was Hailey playing during her audition, I love Gael’s facial expressions when it comes to their scenes. The casting directors picked a good pair with Gael and Lola.

The fact that he came to tell her in person that she didn’t get it, again goes towards their friendship and I love he tried to say it was the committees decision that she didn’t get it as we know he would have pushed for her to be given it, possibly for the selfish reason of seeing her everyday.

Their conversation during the walk and how he told her about the visions of the composers. Again I love that its part of their friendship that he trusts her enough to tell her these things without being worried. Lets be honest, telling someone you’ve been seeing visions of famous composers since you were a child would cause some people to laugh at you and call you crazy. Well even more crazy than people already think he is

The scene on the pier I loved. Rodrigo was trying to be the sensible one saying they’ve done well so far in not giving into temptation but even that can only be held back for so long.

I think Lizzie was all the fans when Rodrigo walked out her room and his response was typical Rodrigo, I loved it.

The goodbye scene was cute. Loved seeing Rodrigo carefree and happy, teasing Hailey. Caio Caio

The scenes afterwards I think are very telling. Both of them are now realising the full impact of whats happened. Rodrigo looked so concerned, and while I think some people will say he’s regretting it, I think he may only regret it in the fact that if it got out, Hailey will never be able to play in the orchestra again while he is there as they will think she slept her way in like Betty Cragdale did at the very beginning, and he knows how much she wants to be playing in an orchestra. I think Hailey’s flashback scene didn’t truly show what she is thinking, she seemed more lost in the memory and then shaking herself out of it as she needed to get on with her day, Lizzie was waiting after all. But we know, as many people have pointed out to her, she’s in love with Rodrigo and will have been happy to keep repeating the memory in her head. 

I loved the final flashback to them lying in bed holding hands. I was half expecting Rodrigo to nuzzle Hailey’s shoulder when he moved his head but it was still a cute little scene. 

Now we’ve had them fall into bed together I’m interested to see where they go next season, and by god there better be a season 4. The show just won 2 Golden Globes you don’t cancel it now! With Hailey now having her own visions and being told not to give up, it’s going to be fun to see which route Hailey takes. Will she stick with the oboe or will she pursue conducting. If she sticks with the oboe which orchestra is she going to fight to get into if she still wants to be with Rodrigo, or will the show go with them not pursuing a romantic relationship as such but still having their kisses every so often like we’ve had so far.

I am intrigued to see how it goes and just praying that we don’t have to wait  a year for the next series. If we do can we please have the season 1&2 soundtrack released on cd, I bought the season3 one as soon as I saw it on Amazon and can we have the show released on dvd! Managed to wangle it so I have it on my iPod classic but would prefer to watch dvds instead of having to use my wifi everytime I want to watch it on my tv.

And for those asking I’m in the UK. I spotted the show got released about 11.30 on Thursday night and stayed up all night watching them, luckily for me I was off work so I could stay up.

anonymous asked:

Hi :) i just wanted to tell you that i love your blog so much <3 (and sterek! that ship will kill me one day) but im having trouble of finding some other good blogs (tumblrs) as yours is and i wanted to ask you if you dont have some good ones to recommend ? and also do you know about some new sterek/hobrien moments from like...2015 or even from this year ? just started watching teen wolf and im already a big fan :D i hope youre having a lovely day :)

Thank you, anon, that means a lot! <33 And yes, I know of some amazing blogs, can’t get enough of them! :D 

@warengrey, @officerstilinskihale, @allthemstilinskifeels, @thepsychicclam, @mad-madam-m, @hoechlindylan, @felicitysmock, @alecymagnus, @stilesandderek, @soldieronbarnes, @pale-silver-comb, @loserchildhotpants, @halekingsourwolf, @omgsterekplease, @zainclaw, @derekandstiles, @attoliancrown, @hoechlinteeth, @sinyhale, @hoechloin, @sterekgifs, @sterekballs

Ugh you guys are wonderful and amazing and are such a pleasure to follow everyday and anon, I feel like you would love following these guys because of Sterek, but they also bring a lot more to their blogs, not only the content, but who they are as people. I just love them all so much <333 And I know I probably forgot amazing people as well, and for that I’m sorry and I suck and you’re the best!!! 

As for Sterek/Hobrien…for Sterek, all we got were these two moments in 2015:

(source)

and

(source)

Because Hoechlin left the show (and like they would had much sterek on the show anyway even if he hadn’t) but they were some awesome moments that of course the Sterek fandom took in our lovely hands and ran with them.

And what’s amazing to me is that despite the lack of canon Sterek, and the fact that we haven’t had ANY sterek in almost a year, there is still SO MUCH sterek, the sterek fandom is still so big, and I still see at least one new post a day about sterek, whether it be a gifset, graphic, fics, drabble, or text post non-fic just talking about them together. Most days I see way more than one new post about sterek, too. 

Yeah, the Sterek fandom isn’t as active as it once was, but considering that we’ve had no Sterek for almost a year, no new source material to work with, and the fact that there’s still a ton of Sterek all over the place? Speaks to the power of the Sterek fandom. We aren’t going anyway anytime soon. Well, at least I’m not ;)

And as for Hobrien, we haven’t gotten much there either, considering the fact that Hoechlin and Dylan were separated or just not put together much in those last months/year before Hoechlin left the show (and MTV was obviously trying to get people to forget Sterek and let it die, and the fact that they’re both very private people and we never really got anything of them hanging out together before anyway except for a picture here and there) but we did get a few lovely gems like,

When they called Hoechlin at SDCC last summer (and Dylan lost his shit ;)):

Dylan about Hoechlin leaving:

(source)

Small moment from the Season 4 gag reel

(source)

Most recently with Dylan’s injury, a fan asked Hoechlin about it at a con (and why Hoechlin didn’t say anything publicly about it) and this is what they said he said:

http://haletostilinski.tumblr.com/post/144438479040/when-we-met-him-we-did-he-said-he-called-him

and at (what I believe is) the same con, Hoechlin said this:

(source)

(and also reiterated how his fave eps are ep 4 of season 1 and 2, the sterek eps;) which led to him saying that

Oh! Hoech also said this last year at a con:

(source)

Also this tweet from when The Scorch Trials came out:

http://ryvetted4.tumblr.com/post/129369661808/im-ded

And then this story at another con:

http://literaryoblivion.tumblr.com/post/132765295773/hobrien-moment

http://literaryoblivion.tumblr.com/post/132834729258/hobrien-moment-part-2

Also I think I remember fans like…being outside Dylan’s hotel last year and then SURPRISE, a wild Hoechlin appeared! Suffice to say that everyone freaked out about that, too.

And well, maybe that actually is a good amount of hobrien even though we didn’t even get one pic of them together in 2015 and so far this year, like in the same room haha. 

Stil aweosme moments, all of them :D

Hope all this helped, anon! And enjoy the Sterek fandom ;) 

#LastLeight

If you’re a 2.0 fan, you probably won’t like this, so either open your eyes and ears or turn away. 

The countdown to Warren Leight’s last episode as showrunner is coming to a close in a few days. 

But for a good portion of #SVU fans, the days can’t come fast enough. #TheLeightWasOnTooLong

Emily Andras AMA over at Reddit

Q: How did the whole Lexa situation affect not maybe the shooting (as I believe it was already shot), but the engagement with fans on social media, for example, of WYNONNA EARP?

And second, how do you experience the showrunners world being a female creator and writer and any advice for - ehem, fellow, hopefully - future writers who want to bring more diversity and good writing to Television?

EA:  The Lexa situation didn’t affect the creative of WE as it WAS already shot, but it made me feel happy about certain storytelling choices we’d made. I was aware of the BYG trope, but I was impressed at how passionately that fanbase pushed it into the mainstream media and have started to demand better representation. 

If you are a ‘future’ writer (hell, if you write, you can just say 'writer’ now) who wants to bring more diversity to television, you should surround yourself with diverse writers and mentors. Then if and when you’re lucky enough to be in a position of power to make change, i.e. as a showrunner, you should put your money where your mouth is and hire diversely.

Q: Did you personally choose Melanie Scofrano to be your lead lady? How was the process to find “the” Wynonna? btw she is doing a great job

EA: I did personally choose her, along with my producers, and it might be the smartest decision I ever made. She is doing an amazing job because she is a once-in-a-lifetime performer. We saw over 300 young actresses across the coast, but in the end, there was only Scrofano. And all was right in Purgatory. :)

Q: In your experience writing/producing tv as a raging feminist, what have been some elements (trope-smashing, specific plots, themes, stylistic choices etc.) for which you’ve really had to fight to be included in the final product? Have you faced any backlash or resistance as a result?

EA: I have always had to fight for the LGBT stuff. Always. Initially nobody wants the pretty girl to be a lesbian. Even if she’s been like that since I started developing her (and I usually have). Nobody thinks there’s an audience. Nobody thinks it’s a real thing. Then it is. And the audience comes because they get it. And I feel triumphant. And happy. I think also 'female’ driven storytelling is still somehow seen as less 'legitimate’ or 'prestigious’ than shows that feature a male anti-hero…in the same way almost any novel written by a female author is decreed 'chitlit’ regardless of content. So I feel like my work is often dismissed as pap regardless of critical adoration or audience success. But here I am, still making TV that I’d watch. And that smells like victory. :) That’s my raging feminist answer and I’m sticking to it.

Q: Was there originally more to the WayHaught barn scene? It seems like it begins in the middle of an interaction.

EA: Could be. DVD EXTRAS, Y'ALL

Q: What is your fav quality about Wynonna? What quality of wynonna do you personally relate to?

EA:  My fave quality about Wynonna is that even though she is such a hot mess with such a dark past and has every reason to give up and give in to simply being 'bad’, she never does. She fights and tries and cares, despite her many mistakes and flaws.  I relate to her torrid love affair with donuts. But she’s much braver than I. :)
