And here is a super salty post about the way a lot of this fandom treats Tobin
That’s what this post is. See look ^^^^^ – it’s right up there in the post title. So if you’re looking for humor or anything but salt, scroll on. You shall not find it here, nope. And while I will be a C@ryl (look at me censoring my own ship tag!) shipper until the end of time, but this is not remotely a shippy post. Okay, good talk.
(…just skip to the italics if you don’t wanna waste your time k bye)
OMG IM SO GLAD I STOPPED WATCHING REIGN THE RAPE WAS THE LAST STRAW FOR ME SO I STOPPED WATCHING
BUT BECAUSE I KEPT SEEING UPDATES ABOUT THE SHOW ON TWITTER AND FROM HEARING IT FROM MY FRIENDS I JUST COULDN’T HOLD IT IN ANYMORE.
I KEPT QUIET AND KEPT MY SMALL RANTS ON TWITTER TO A MINIMUM BUT I CANT DO IT ANYMORE
TODAY MY FRIEND MESSAGED ME SAYING HOW GOOD THE RECENT EPISODE WAS AND OMG THAT WAS MY LAST STRAW I FUKING CANT KEEP IT IN OK
*deep breath* lol
first of all- the rape scene
that scene is pretty self explanatory on how ridiculous that scene was. I feel like I don’t need to talk about this because I’m pretty sure everyone covered it . for me.
Its not even about the rape though- the bottom line is rape is a sensitive topic, and yes I completely agree that it should not be ignored and can be a topic of discussion, but its just the way they portrayed the assault was disturbing. the fact that they used it as a plot device to advance francis’s plot is absurd
“feminist show” my ass.
basically laurie was on crack or something when she planned out that episode. I cannot express my feelings enough on how badly I feel that she needs to be fired.
ever since season 2 the show has been goin downhill. ever since from the beginning the show has been getting bad
it’s not just the rape scene that ticked me off- in fact like i said the rape scene was the last straw.
I haven’t seen a single reign episode since 2x09 until my friends wanted me to watch it with them and jfc I’m so glad I haven’t caught up with it.
Mary’s character development has reached an all time low people omg
I’m assuming from the gifsets and shit that last episode she let him “be free” although I’m not sure why bc I haven’t actually seen what was going on these past months (so happy I haven’t)
but anyway 2x14 was the first and last episode I have and will have ever seen since 2x09 because OMG
what the actual fuck
I don’t get how a woman who has been through something as horrific and disgusting can be so freaking open to this nigga conde who she barely knows and completely shuts off her husband and “true love"
I haven’t seen her "recovering” episodes but still
the mary that I knew- the mary that was in love with francis- ‘I want you to be free"
and then here comes francis walking in like
talking to the woman that WAS WITH HIS BROTHER AT ONE POINT
francis’s love for mary amazes me
ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME LAURIE WHAT THE FUCK ARE YOU DOING ARE YOU TRYING TO MAKE PEOPLE HATE MARY BECAUSE IT SURE IS FUCKING WORKING
like ok i get it she was raped and by no means am i saying that doesn’t matter ( i am still infuriated by the portrayal of the rape btw) but the fact that she runs off to conde and just last episode she says she loves her husband doesn’t make any sense.
jfc after the episode I have seen, I still can’t believe people are watching it.
I still can’t believe people are watching this after 2x09 TBH HOW
i’m so glad people have stopped putting themselves through watching this shit but It annoys me that it took monde to shut people down.
speaking of monde -why is marry always the object of all the dudes affections in the show i mean really ????
and why is mary always infatuated with someone of francis’s family??
and always breaking up with francis???
i don’t remember the last time francis broke it off with mary actually..(maybe in season 1? i think? idk)
AND DON’T EVEN GET ME STARTED WITH THE LOVE TRIANGLE OMG
……..WELL THIS IS AWKWARD ISN’T IT
claps 4 u laurie AMAZING WRITING
and then back to monde-AKA MASH 2.0
i don’t even know.
and the “you will be the death me” thing UHM WHAT
i thought…mary loved francis????? ??????????????
i didn’t watch the last episode like I said before but from what I heard that’s what she said ??? was she lying??? laurie where are you I need you to explain this because that makes no sense
I guess I understand why people are leaving reign now after this episode but I still don’t get how you stayed in the first place? #sorrynotsorry
But then again frary is hard to let go? but still ?? …idk i just don’t know what to say anymore
then I saw the promo for 2x15 and OH MY GOD
mary jumping into bed with francis just for the purpose of securing her country lol what
I thought after what she has suffered- and her love for her husband - i mean - I thought-but francis?-oh wait she loves conde
–the mary I knew- that loved francis - is not this at all
and I don’t ever forget all of the times mary fought for francis, but that mary is not this mary right now
idek what i just said
All of that being said (if any of that made any sense lol) I miss reign honestly and truthfully- Yes I miss it not reign right now but the show I fell in love with. I miss mary. The only character that seems to have had me-through the bad and the good - is Francis. It’s not just because I am irrevocably in love with Toby. All biases aside though, Francis has changed as well, but he has never lost that same aura from season 1. The only thing I am afraid of for him is if Laurie will continue to write him off as some helpless husband pining for his wife the entire season, but I probably won’t care anymore because (I hope) after this post I will remove reign season 2 from my life. And I love Mary okay. I do. It just seems that the writers have made Mary too fickle and made her fall too fast and too hard too soon- like her feelings seem meaningless now. For every man that has shown any interest to her she loses herself. Her character development is horrible to say the least. I hope that I can just pretend that reign ended with season one and was a good show. Not because of monde or the random love triangles but because ever since season 2 started the plot lines got boring, they got recycled from season 1 and a lot of things don’t make sense to me. I kept saying I was done since 2x09, when the writers pulled that painful rape scene, and I REALLY wish I was but from exhausting myself to reading things online and watching promos of the show to see how bad it was doing- I realize I wasn’t done. As a former passionate watcher of the show, I cared about it too much. And even now I realize I care as I write this ( I realize how long this is already lol) but I really hope I can put this behind me. Reign season two doesn’t exist. Laurie ruined my show lol k bye
idek what i said ok I can’t speak english people bye
