Yes, I wrote my daughter a letter. And that bastard that made me call him Father took pieces of it, that only Allison would know were from me, and used it to manipulate her, to turn her into something she was never supposed to be. I never wanted her to become me. And it got her killed. I will find that man, and I will kill him. Even if I have to come back from the grave.
Eaddy Mays (as Victoria Argent)’s very powerful answer to the question of whether or not Victoria actually wrote the letter to Allison
And I left it because she clearly told me she was done talking about it and what do you do when you can’t argue with the person anymore? TAKE IT TO TUMBLR!!!
My main problem with a statement like this is that it seems like she’s saying it to defend herself and her “friends” for the shoddy treatment of storylines revolving around women and people of color on the show. What it comes off as is “them hoes are just lucky they’re collecting a check.
It also looks like she’s saying "we’re doing you a favor by recognizing you exist at all, so just be happy that you’re even on the screen” because to come back with the… uhh, da-doy statement of “we could have had all white people in those roles and the story wouldn’t change (which is problematic in and of itself) just smacks of butthurt and is really dismissive. Even Darren Aronofsky was like "really, sis?”
Think about the aspiring POC and actresses who want to be on your show but know right off the bat that contract is going to be short because you will be killed in some nonsense way. Heck, think about the people currently on your show begging for story-lines and job security. Y'all already know Danny is scared like a mug with Khylin Rhambo on the callsheet.
I don’t know what whitewashed shenanigans the future of team wolf holds but I guess I’ll be here for it. Sigh.
Few things have ever been as surreal as sitting in a Gentle Derek panel during a discussion of a/b/o while knowing Gideon Emery and Brian Patrick Wade are sitting behind me, listening to everything, chins on palms.
Even though Crystal couldn’t make it yesterday, I still picked up two more autographs to add to my collection at Bitecon. But I have to say, the piece of art I’m most proud of seeing signed, IS THIS STICKER OF STILES PISSING ON SCOTT’S SANDCASTLE XD
