So what's up with twitter and Megan Boone and the blacklist? she is not okay with what's happening to her character, she is not happy about the marketing and she liked posts that criticized K2 and abuse...
To be honest, I’m not super active over on Twitter. I follow her account, but not closely.
I’m assuming you’re referring to the posts she’s made that everyone’s been chattering about over here on Tumblr? I think it’s probably a very complicated situation in which we don’t know all the details of. We have no idea if this has been an ongoing discussion behind the scenes between her and the various people that would be in charge of marketing and social media or if tweeting about it is her first go-to. We don’t know and unless she or someone else in the know were to tell us, I’m not sure we’d have anyway to know, so any deeper meaning to the tweets besides what she’s actually saying is speculation on our part.
From what I’ve seen, her point was that she’s been the co-start and female lead for 4 full years, starting in on the 5th, and she feels like James gets much better representation in the marketing. I don’t think she’s wrong about that. Maybe it made sense in S1 when James was a well-known name and Megan wasn’t as well known, but we’re going into S5. We know who she is and she’s just as important to this show as James is. If she went about expressing it in the right way… that’s where it gets murky for me, mostly because I have no way to have all the facts. You can say “I would have handled it such-in-such way” all you want, but the truth is that we don’t know how many other avenues she’s taken to try to approach this issue before taking to Twitter.
As for liking and not liking posts etc etc… I think people get very excited over it when actors like their tweets (I know I do), but we have no idea why they like them. It’s their own personal thoughts on it. If she loves Keen2, hates it, or is entirely indifferent to it, who knows? It’s easy to assume that actors and writers see the characters like we do, but I don’t think that’s always the case. Shipping is very important to many of us in our fandom culture, but those actually working on the show do have an entirely different angle that they approach things from.
All I ask is that Megan does her job well and to the best of her ability, and she does. She’s a great actress and, I think, getting better each season.
Devs advertising their games these days:
This is the BIGGEST game ever......the map is 57 times bigger than all the maps of our past games combined........the BIGGEST game you’ve ever played......our protagonist has so many voice lines that we had to hire 2 voice actors because one lost his voice while we were recoding.....please buy our game it is tHE HUGEST™
I was planning at first to make Hanzo as the king of Atlantis just for the delight to imagine him say “You presume much to think you are welcome here” (one of the best lines of the movie). But well, who could be playing the role of Kida then?
Also I always loved the shot of the guards kneeling in front of their fallen king, so have the sons grieving their father instead (yes Genji is here and he’s green). Hanzo is not supposed to be there at his part of the movie but WHY NOT ?
Glancing at the Silmarillion fandom from afar:
Detailed descriptions, intense character relations and details, sons of fëanor 89% of the material, Melkor might be sassy but sauron is VERY sassy, fingon and maedhros are dedicated husbands okay, FËANOR FËANOR FËANOR
Actually reading the Silmarillion:
hundreds of years of events are covered in like two pages, um I think the sons of fëanor are doing something like over there and over here maybe, Morgoth is sending out orcs, sauron is being mauled by a talking dog-- maedhros was held in captivity but you might have missed that if you weren't paying close enough attention and fingon was there but literally it's like a page moving on-- elu thingol is actually the only one with development here to be honest I don't know why he's so ignored-- also fëanor died like forever ago (men are kinda important to the story but elves
