Headcanon that thats actually real Jeremy from RT and he snapped when all the people he looked up to got murdered, Lindsay's ghost semi possessed him, but despite getting agent Kojima to join with them, they're really terrible at being evil and agent Mica knows its them and is just humoring Jindsey like 'oh no that poorly disguised trap nearly got me, maybe next time buddy *pats*' and Matt and Trevor come along for the ride too trying to make sure Jindsey don't hurt themselves
There are already headcanons for this, holy fuck you guys
why do you think ichabod's family storyline isn't as compelling as abbie's? i'm not asking as if i disagree (i think his family drama is absolute trash) but i'm wondering why you think it might not be resonating with fans like abbie's does? do you think it's because it's unrelatable?
Well, I think the biggest problem is that Ichabod isn’t a character that’s designed to have so much dramatic focus. His development and storylines are undercut by his own premise.
Crane works best when he’s used for humor or exposition, because it doesn’t require you to really dig that deep into his character. When he’s discovering something from the 21st century or is out of his element, he shines. Or when there’s a ton of dialogue that reads like a lecture, it’s best when given to him since that fits his character, i.e. the professor from Oxford. When the writers try to bring “realistic drama” into Crane’s storyline, it falls apart rather quickly. Crane is an outlandish character, so any serious attempt at grounding what he’s going through is hard to digest and comes off as ridiculous. If Sleepy Hollow’s storytelling was structured differently, I don’t think Crane’s storyline would be as tedious.
The show does a lot of “What you thought was one thing in the past is actually something completely different” storytelling. That works for Abbie because her past is still with her in the present - Jenny is around. Joe is around. Corbin, Lori and Andy all are/were around. We meet people who knew her before she met Crane, like Sheriff Reyes and Luke, or even randoms like the bank teller in 2.03 and the case worker in 2.04, so her past is still relevant. The supernatural has a presence in Abbie’s life, but it isn’t the reason for everything that happens to her. Her relationships exist outside of the supernatural. Her life exists outside of the supernatural. Abbie exists outside of the supernatural.
For Crane, everything about him, including his existence, is entirely dependent on the supernatural or is just downright ridiculous. To start off, he was apparently at every event in the Revolutionary Era and knew everyone…ever, so yeah, it’s hard to really take him seriously from jump. So then we’re left with his relationships providing insight and backstory, but that works against him as well. All of the people who knew Crane should be dead. All of the meaningful relationships he developed when he was younger should also be long gone, because unlike Abbie, his past should not carryover into the present. So how do the writers get around that? By doing wacky shit. Bring his best friend back by making him a headless demon soldier of the apocalypse. Make his wife a witch over 200 years old that was trapped in purgatory. Make his son a warlock who was buried alive and still living now. And then how do they create meaningful relationships between Crane and characters he had no contact with for 200 years? By centering their drama around hurt feelings, love and secrecy, because those are the only things that could arguably last for so long - and that in and of itself is a huge stretch. Nothing about what happens in Crane-centered storylines is organic, so trying to ground it in reality is even harder to wrap your head around. The only time it has ever worked IMO was when Ichabod learned he had a son. It was one of those few times for Crane where it was a realistic story (learning about being a father and dealing with the loss of a child you never got a chance to meet) that was put in a supernatural setting. It worked because it was human, and you could at least understand Crane’s loss, even if you found it uninteresting.
I swear, it’s like Crane and Abbie’s storylines are unintentional antitheses of each other. Abbie lives a grounded existence that is elevated by the supernatural. Cranes lives a supernatural existence that is grounded by reality. The problem is that works really well in one case and not the other. It’s much easier to digest that everyday occurrences are really fueled by otherworldly shit as opposed to crazy shit being born from relatively normal things. For example:
Lori committing suicide and suffering from mental illness being revealed as her being tormented by demons for protecting her children vs. Henry selling his soul to the devil and murdering people to bring about the end of days because his parents hurt his feelings
Jenny committing multiple felonies being revealed as an attempt to protect her sister from being hurt while Jenny was possessed vs. Abraham becoming the Horseman of Death and wanting to murder Ichabod because he wants to marry Katrina.
When you compare them to each other, Crane drama just looks…fucking ridiculous and petty. And until the writers figure out a better way to do his storylines and family drama, it will continue to be lackluster.
I think one of the most interesting & important things about Alex & Piper is their introspective deconstruction & subsequent inversion. like Hannah’s been pointing out a lot lately that Alex has always been presented as the Femme Fatale™ but this season kind of completely obliterated that with the constant stream of “you are not cut out for murder” from almost every character around her. but I think that’s still only like a small sliver of it tbh. when the show started the Alex we were presented with was so in control & cool & just… devastating. & the Piper we were presented with was meek & scared &… the total opposite. & then the season progressed & ended with Piper nearly beating another inmate to death with her bare hands & it became clear that she’s so much more than the wispy blonde lady the world sees her as. I just think it’s so interesting that this show presented us with these two ideas & then completely deconstructed them; wispy blonde woman has mad anger issues & depth, & cool controlled badass is TERRIFIED & has no idea what she’s doing. but like… the thing that makes it even cooler is that after they took that deconstruction they then INVERTED the ideas completely. & PIPER became everything we initially thought Alex was (but it was a warped twisted version because it’s never what Alex ACTUALLY WAS, it was just a mimic of the false projection we were all initially fooled by) as Alex became the one who needed protecting, she became the OPPOSITE of femme fatale which is essentially a clearer version of the false Piper idea we were initially presented with. like. Piper & Alex are so goddamn interesting as individual characters but when you look at their development as a couple too it’s crazy intriguing. like how in the world do people think they’re boring???
how can a show acknowledge how much a character has suffered (lapis’ ‘I was terrible to you!’) and then turn around and make them into the bad guy again and continue to punish them for…. what??? being big and strong and menacing-looking????? cause i really can’t think of any other reason lmao
like i’m still super hyped and the leaks made me super happy but i just
wish they weren’t making jasp suffer endlessly lol
just have to wait for the episode and see what happens i guess
I feel so bad for Yanks because they don't have table legs. Their table tops just rest directly on the floor and it must be terribly inconvenient. I'd post a picture of table legs so they could see, but they're probably better off not knowing what they're missing. #JustLittleBritishThings
Hang about, mate. You call them "table legs"? Ridiculous. Those are barnsnoodles. How do you even look at a barnsnoodle and think "table leg"?
Excuse me, those are actually called timlimbs. I didn't think anybody else knew about timlimbs, since you can only get them at Tim Hortons.
steve/bucky/sam. eventually bucky does come back to them. sam takes that as his cue to leave. bucky and sam give each other the "talk", both mistakenly believing that the other one is going out with steve. steve would like them to know that there is enough ~FREEDOM~ to be shared lolol if you get his drift
I have to say, Sam Wilson falls under a category I really love and vaguely lump together under “WOULD LOVE TO SEE MAKE OUT WITH HERO, WOULD NEVER DO IT”. Like I’m sure he’d love to tap that and yet he never would because a) wow, issues, he’d rather not be working at work AND working at home, and also b) like Bones McCoy he sees the position of being someone’s friend as being more valuable than putting his face against Steve’s face, as glorious as that would undoubtedly be.
I guess it’s an ace thing or whatever. ANYWAY if he and Bucky ever got into a pissing match over Steve, or if they were trying to not step on each other’s toes over a relationship I think it would actually be more likely to be his friendship? Especially for Bucky because in the context of how he perceives himself and how the world perceives him, he’s always been Steve’s Friend and Brother and while it is manifestly a bad idea for Bucky to be Steve’s Friend and Brother now, he reasons, it still hurts to let someone else into that role. (Yes I’m aware that Bucky prewar was probably the one people remembered more but to a real extent, in the first movie Bucky himself revolved around Steve in a way that makes you wonder if you weren’t supposed to go there why did they hire Sebastian “my two main acting skills involve kissing dudes and also crying a lot” Stan.) Whereas Sam is like, Go! Be free! Repair your relationships! By the way Don’t Ask Don’t Tell is repealed FYI and Bucky is like, What the fuck are you talking about, and Sam dispenses a few home truths about one thing the modern world has sort of gotten right.
And then Bucky’s just like o__________________o because cultural homophobia plus deeply ingrained protective instincts toward Steve equals wow that never even crossed his dear little mind before but now it’s all he can think of like for forever. Then he’s like BUT DON’T YOU WANT TO – because Bucky can’t honestly not imagine soaking up Steve’s everything jealously for himself (oh man do Bucky and Tony not get along) and Sam’s like, Well I guess but crazy.
Then they stare at each other for a while and Bucky says very quietly as if it’s being torn out of him, that he wants Steve to have the best. Of everything.
And Sam’s like OH JEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEZ and says Can I give you a hug buddy and Bucky allows him, warily, and by the time Steve wanders in after a full day of having terrible ideas with Natasha and bickering with Tony, Bucky is clinging a little desperately to Sam and Sam is holding onto him, tight tight tight, and Steve freezes for a second. Sam looks up and says, Get your spangled ass over here, Rogers, and Steve bolts over and piledrives into them, into a long hard hug that lasts for what seems like forever.
not all Muslims do horrible things like that. I'm a Muslim and I hate what they're doing bc it goes against my and other Muslims morals. Please don't group us with those people. It hurts to know that people look at us like monsters
Not all KKK members do terrible things or physically hurt people.
But if you’re tied to groups that have been known historically AND EVEN TODAY to slaughter people who disagree with them, you’re going to be viewed as someone who supports those acts.
It’s up to you to change. To change the way people view your religion, change the religion itself itself or move away from it. But it’s all on you. Instead of messaging me telling me how you’re not a terrible person, maybe focus on what are you doing to change the violent Muslims.
my family is terribly disappointed in me for not having higher aspirations, i am going to school for cosmetology and they're all angry at me. they don't understand that i am just trying to make myself happy. i enjoy doing hair, makeup, beauty things. they just look at it in a way of me not being rich.
Not only are you doing something that makes you happy but think of all the people you’ll make happy by giving them confidence in their appearance. Your parents should be proud.
