When season 3 ended, my friend Tori and I created this network so we could all survive the hiatus. Well we’re back from season 4 and are looking for active members to add to our network! About 20-25 people will be added.
Would you mind sharing a list of all your ships? I'm in need of a new pairing to obsess over and you have great taste!
ahhh, you flatter me, anon ;) thank you. as for ‘ships, here’s a shortlist of those that truly-madly-deeply succeeded in wiping the floor with me:
Hannibal & Clarice (TSotL, Hannibal) Red & Liz (The Blacklist) Petyr & Sansa (GoT/ASoIaF) Elias & Chise (The Ancient Magus’ Bride) Phantom & Christine (PotO - i’m extremely partial to the 25th anniversary performance #sorrynotsorry)
also had a short-ish but intense Snape & Hermione phase years ago bc the fics for these 2 were divine af
(tbh I blame my childhood obsession with Beauty and the Beast for my fascination with these relationships above since they are essentially patterned on this “archetypal” dynamic. i was predisposed, your honor.)
Richard & Camille (Death in Paradise) Foyle & Sam (Foyle’s War) Liz & Jack (30 Rock)
Roz & Frasier
(Frasier) Daphne & Niles (Frasier) Walt & Vic (Longmire) Bill & Virginia (Masters of Sex) Grissom & Sara (CSI) Rose & Nine (Doctor Who) Eli & Natalie (The Good Wife) Frank & Claire (House of Cards) Ginny & Mike (Pitch) Deb & Lundy (Dexter) Stuart & Freddie (Vicious) James & Miranda & Thomas (Black Sails) Silver & Flint (Black Sails)
Why must Nickelodeon hurt me this way? I mean it’s been 10 years. I’ve made my peace. I’ve moved on. I’ve found new shows to obsess over. New ships to love. New characters to cry about. I had forgotten all about Zoey and Chase up until this point. I’ve done my grieving. And now you cOME AND PULL THIS SHIT? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME???? WAS THIS SUPPOSED TO MAKE ME FEEL BETTER???? I WAS DOING FINE. I THOUGHT ZOEY AND CHASE WERE LIVING HAPPILY EVER AFTER SOMEWHERE DOING IDK WHAT BUT NOW??? NOW I KNOW THAT THEY ARENT EVEN TOGETHER IN THE CURRENT TIMELINE. NOW I HAVE 100 MORE QUESTIONS. WHAT HAPPENED TO THEM? DID THEY GET TOGETHER AND BREAK UP? WHY? WHEN? HOW? WILL CHASE FINALLY FIND HER AND WILL THEY LIVE HAPPILY EVER AFTER? BUT MOST IMPORTANTLY WHY YOULD YOU HURT ME THIS WAY NICKELODEON?
Why does everyone act like Lexa was the best thing to ever happen to the show? She wasn’t? You guys didn’t feel the same when Anya was there, why is the soggy white bread any different?
I will fight any clexugh shipper that acts like they’re entitled to the show and that it should cater to their every need. Like no, Alycia was never supposed to be a part of it for that long or to that extent, and everyone knew she would be killed off because she’s a fucking extra that is idolized for being bland af.
And about the whole queer baiting thing, lol. No, that’s not queer baiting. You guys got what you wanted, and it was foreshadowed and known that Lexa would be killed off. There’s a very big difference between queer baiting and what happened on the 100.
I just feel bad for the cast and their characters being belittled all because the new fans obsessed over clexugh. The show was never about ships, and now thanks to them I actually really hate this toxic fandom. Most clexugh shippers I’ve encountered are frankly, mean and ignorant and really don’t care about anyone or anything other than getting their precious ship. (Standing up for j rat when he bullied Ricky, but suddenly hating him when he kills of a fictional character). Giving a fake spoiler to disappoint bellarke fans. The fact that they trample over all the other characters like they’re not the main cast and their fav isn’t an extra. Trying to cancel and show and their efforts to do so actually hurt Bob so much he had to speak about it. Like wtf is wrong with you people?
This show used to be about the 100 and their survival and friendship and character growth. I haven’t seen any of that this season, at all. All I see is a total 180 of Bellamys character that even Bob and the cast think is absurd, Clarke falling head over heals for some chick that is literally not bunnies and rainbows like the clexugh fandom paint her out to be. Season 1+2 Clarke would never act like the lovesick puppy she is now, never mind the fact it took her ages just to admit she loved Finn who she knew longer than Lexa by a shit ton. I have so much more to say but my fingers are starting to cramp.
After a few beers in I found myself trying to think what it was that I wanted to say about carmillaseries, one year on, and I realized that it was basically a long list of thank you’s.
Thank you for giving me something to focus my energy and occasional free time into when I was kind of flailing. Something that clears my head and doesn’t leave me with a guilty feeling, an empty bank account and a 4 day hangover (I limit those to 2ish now).
Thank you for introducing me to some truly awesome people, some of whom have been the catalyst for an extremely memorable jaunt half way around the world (mostly memorable, the details of that last beer-filled Saturday are a bit fuzzy solesmusic).
Thank you for giving me something to be entertained by on a bi-weekly basis and a new ship to obsess over enjoy. (Although I’m not sure if that’s been a blessing or a curse, really.)
Most importantly, thank you for giving us some solid queer representation in a series that isn’t about coming out, that doesn’t use the character’s queerness as a plot device.
Coming out stories are great, and they totally have their place, but it’s about damn time that the media grasped the fact that the big coming out drama is not the be all and end all of queer stories (especially when you’re old like me and did all that jazz years ago).
What the world needs now is for being queer to be seen for what it is: just another facet of the much wider picture of a person. Not just for the queer people who can watch it and finally be able to relate to their favourite character in that way without feeling like a plot device, but for the rest of the world to start realizing that that is not the most important or interesting thing about a person [insert Cosima gif].
And that is what Carmilla, over the past year, has done so well.
I wasn’t so sure going into the movie. I was excited for a second one and really wanted one after the first one but I was scared that it wouldn’t be as good. I read other people say it wasn’t as good which made me even more nervous. But me and the friend I went with both thought it was really good and maybe even funnier than the first. We decided we probably liked it as much as the first. I loved this movie so much and soon after we left the theater I asked my friend if the DVD was out yet because I want it right know. I seriously need to see this movie again.
There was a lot less Jessie and Treble makers than I expected. They were barely in it. I thought they’d be in it more. But I guess if we had more of them then we wouldn’t have gotten as much of the other storylines with the new girl Emily, Beca and her internship, and the Bella’s trying to take not DSM. Because this was seriously lacking Jessie we hardly got any Beca and Jessie moments except for them meeting at a part and him coming to see her and the other girls perform at the end. I think the longest scene in which they were together and actually together was when he dropped her off at the internship. They were at the riff off together but they were hardly even together there.
I really liked Das Sound Machine. They were just so much fun and they were really good singers. I loved hearing them sing with their accents. It was hard to understand what they were singing sometimes because of their accents but they were still amazing. They kept bringing it with their trash talk and Beca just kept complimenting them. I kept waiting for at the end for Beca to finally get them good but she didn’t she ended up telling them they smelled like cinnamon. That was my only real disappointment. I just really wanted to see Beca take them down with a good smartass comeback.
In the first movie I totally shipped Jessie and Beca. I just wanted them to get together. Then before I saw the movie I saw all these posts about Bechloe and really liked some quotes I saw. I wanted to see the movie and see what all these Bechloe shippers were seeing. You know part of me thinks that if I hadn’t gotten on Tumblr and saw all those posts then I wouldn’t be shipping Bechloe. Damn you Tumblr. I was just fine before but now you’ve given me a new couple to completely obsess over and ship. After seeing this movie I now ship Beca and Chloe more than Beca and Jessie. I need a third movie so they can finally get together. I need them to be together now. I need to see them actually together as a couple on screen. Because then it will be real and not just a dream. It needs to become real. They kept hinting at them throughout the movie and then that tent scene I just wanted something to happen. We just need to get a third movie, make sure everyone comes back, and at the end Bechloe becomes official. I mean they have to be endgame right? I didn’t catch it in the first movie but there were tiny hints and then this movie there were giant hints everywhere so there needs to be a third movie where it just happens already.
Bumper was so much nicer and not a bad guy in this movie. What happened? I’m not complaining I like this version and the older version of him. It’s just he seemed so different. I loved seeing him and Fat Amy finally become a real couple. One of my favorite parts was her singing to him trying to win him back. I also loved how we got the Beca and Chloe watching and wondering why she didn’t just walk around and then saying she never does anything small. I kept expecting Amy to fall and it never came. Another small thing I was surprised about was that Beca and Fat Amy were roommates. I really thought Beca and Chloe would be. But then we wouldn’t have gotten that lovely scene of Fat Amy telling Beca she knew about the internship and that she also takes $20 from her all the time then completely avoiding it when Beca tried to discuss that. I also loved Amy giving Beca some of her confidence.
I really liked the new girl Emily. She was so fun and weird unlike the other girls who are much more confident. I liked how she always just said the most awkward things. Her and Benji were also just so cute and awkward. I wish we would have seen more of them together. I liked how she wrote Flashlight and then worked with Beca which helped both of them and then they ended up performing it at the competition and everyone held up flashlights.
I thought we’d spend a lot more time on the camping retreat. The trailer just seemed to show so much of them camping so I was expecting for them to be camping like half the movie. The camping scenes we did get though were great. I loved how when Beca got caught in the net everyone freaked out and she and everyone was thinking she was going to die but then when Amy runs off and gets caught in it they all just stay seated and are like walk it off. I also love that they were going to form something to catch Beca but then she was cut down by the quiet girl who I love but who’s name I can’t remember and she just fell on top of Fat Amy. I really liked how Aubrey was In charge of the retreat because she enjoyed controlling people. I like how when they got there they were all happy to see each other and they hugged and everything then a second later she was yelling at them for screwing everything up so badly.
This movie just made me want more. I want a third movie. I have no idea what they could do with it but I want another. I also only want another if everyone will be back mostly Rebel Wilson, Anna Kendrick, and Brittany Snow. I know Rebel Wilson signed on to do a third movie If they do one but no one else has said anything about it. I know this one kind of felt like they were saying goodbye but it also didn’t feel like goodbye. I think the movie will only just as good if they’re all back because they’re the main characters and I don’t want a bunch of new people it would be like starting over. I would also love to see the Germans again. They were just great. Also as I’ve said before I want another movie so we can make Bechloe official.
