no shit just facts

Remember when your blog was called beronica-love and once, one of your post was in a buzzfeed article

I don’t like to dwell on the past. Also I do like to dwell on the fact that buzzfeed just kinda shoves shit in their articles without contacting the creators :/

voltron: here! have this stereotypical loverboy trope and absolutely worthless vlog where lance could’ve had an important storyline like keith but didn’t bc we dont like lance that much lol!

Alright this is really stupid. 

In the original series, Ryuk is a Shinigami who’s bored. He’s in the human world cuz he has nothing better to do. he’s not so much evil as a chaotic neutral. He wanted to see what a human would do with a notebook that kills people. 

He could kill people if he chose to, but it’s not like he was being malicious. It’s his job, he’s a Shinigami. 

He’s a monster, but the real monster is the human. 

Light Yagami. 

The fact that Ryuk was frightening in appearance was something of a fakeout, because he’s an observer, not the main evil or anything. 

NOT some mean-spirited babadook-type demon that’s whispering into the human ear, always trying to convince people to do evil. 

He SOUNDS like the green goblin, actually, which is just really stupid. 

Because it makes him sound like he’s the one pressuring Light to turn to the dark side, or some shit. 

I really don’t like this story change.

It just undermines the fact that Light was the true evil.

He was never pressured to do what he did in the original series. HE CHOSE to because he was a crazy megalomaniac. 

This makes it look like this demon is the antagonist, you know?

Like he says, “you don’t have to use it, but I’m going to give it to someone else in 7 days.”

They made it seem like Ryuk’s notebook had to be “passed along” like that stupid fucking box in Wish Upon, you know?

Like “He who wields the Death Note is going to die…and then I’ll find another person to curse with it!”

But in the original it’s literally just a book. You could use it or not. Ryuk didn’t care, he’d still get his souls eventually. 

I think Netflix was trying to make Ryuk look like the typical scary demon. Like one of the many generic demons they have in their horror movie section. 

They wanted Death Note to be like a horror movie, hence the Final Destination deaths instead of the boring, mundane “heart attacks.” 

Hence the stupid scene in the abandoned orphanage, where L’s name was. 

And by doing so…they’ve essentially abandoned the more cerebral, high-minded nature of the original Death Note. 

They decided “hey, let’s make something terrifying and ominous” instead of making it about a battle of wits, a suspenseful detective kind of drama. 

Where you get to see the serial killer and detective play a dangerous dance of sorts. 

Instead you get…gory deaths. 

Final Destination deaths. 

Hence why Light is in HIGH SCHOOL, not college.

Because he can be the victim of childish school bullying, for one thing.

But also because high school puts you at that high-emotional period of your life where injustice feels much more dramatic and personal than the deadened college student feels. 

And in general,horror movies like high schoolers.

Like their vulnerability. And the angst gold mine. 

Light is doing other people’s homework for them. 

He’s a “troubled” youth who’s angry at the world. His mom died to a criminal who’s going to get off with connections and money. His dad is “weak.” He has an edgy girlfriend who “understands” him. 

But what’s dumb about that is that the original Light Yagami was highly educated. He didn’t panic or get furious that often. He was an evil mastermind with lofty aspirations and condescending arrogance that lead to him trying to make himself the “god” of a new world. He didn’t care about his girlfriend. He was calm and collected and ready for the challenge of outwitting L.

He did NOT start crying and panicking the second L was on his tail. 

Him being a college student was an important part of that. It made him more mature, more ready to be an “adult.”

Light being a teenager just makes him look like a dumb kid being tricked by an evil demon. 

Edit: I don’t know why I thought light was a college student in the original. I guess he just seemed like one and Japanese high schools are just much cleaner and better taken care of, so it looked like it…my bad. But my opinion still stands. Light wasn’t a bullied edgy teen. He was arrogant and intelligent. Not pouty.

Another edit: Also, the fucking prom scene and the “romantic” ferris wheel? They were trying to make him look like an “Average teenage boy” who accidentally fell into the wrong crowd, the demonic crowd lmao, and was bullied into doing “bad things” and manipulated by his girlfriend. 

It was lazy. 

A lazy way of making Death Note look like a horror movie.

Shame on you netflix. 

This seems pretty good, except for the fact that the Vietnam War was over by 1975. In 1973 the US decided to pull out from Vietnam, POWs were released in January and the last combat troops left from the country in March *Edit* if there was any year that Logan would be in Vietnam, it would be in 1968 when shit really hit the fan for American troops

I hope I don’t bother you when I’m upset. I don’t usually tell people things, so I’m sorry I let everything out all at once and just hope you can make me feel better.

If you say “pan/ply people are basically bi, so they go under the b in lgbt,” I will come to your house and kick your ass.

Let’s talk about the Alternate Universe in s12 for a moment. Specifically, in its relation to Sam.

Remember how Dean and pretty much anyone else blamed Sam for the apocalypse? Remember how, even now, it’s still something that he drags around, being the one who freed Lucifer and caused the apocalypse? Can you imagine the burden this is for him, the pressure it puts on him to not make the same mistake again? Remember how a second apocalypse was the only thing that stopped him from saying yes in s11?

Now, let’s think about this for a moment. Without Sam in this other universe… how could it be possible that the apocalypse still happened, when it was his fault? I mean, we know Mary existed and John did at one point too, so up until then it was probably a very similar universe, don’t you agree? So, how come the apocalypse happened without Sam, when he’s apparently responsible for it?

Easy answer: Because he is not! And he never was!

Obviously, which is proven by canon now, Sam was never the one responsible for the apocalypse to happen. In a different universe, it happened without him - with much worse outcomes! This means that every single time Sam has been accused of causing the apocalypse - openly or not - it simply wasn’t true. Because even without Sam ever existing, it would have happened anyway!

It just happened that, due to different circumstances, Sam was the one to break the last seal. With different circumstances, someone else would have done it. In the end, Sam was simply at the wrong place at the wrong time and that’s canon!

In reality, Sam was the one who prevented the worst. He was the one who ended all of this by jumping into the pit - with Michael and Lucifer!

So, the next time anyone dares to hold the apocalypse against Sam to prove how horrible and bad he is, remind them of that. Because, no matter what, in the end, Sam saved the world and did not destroy it. It was destroyed without him!
