seasons catering

Rashad did not deserve to win last night! This show was about the best dancer and the best story and frankly we all know Normani had that. Let’s not pretend that the Harmonizers are small they are massive and come in clutch when it comes to online voting and there’s no way in hell David and Rashad votes are more then Normani. Look at every award show that has a fan vote and mostly 5H wins beating 1d fans and JB fans. Now everybody might think I’m salty but I have every right to be since she consistently improve and is the best and this whole season catered to male mediocrity. This should have been an all female finale but DWTS can’t afford to let that happened. First, they need David there because they what to pull in the MLB demographic as well as hopefully get another baseball player since he is the first. Second, Rashad is jobless (sorry not sorry) he was a apart of the NFL which they always have a player, they announce he was going on tour with them which is almost always the winner of the show before 3rd place was announce and Rashad is jobless while David retired with young kids and Normani is flourishing with a solid career so they were no way for them to do the tour so therefore Rashad being the only option hence the winner. DWTS has some real nerve to think that the people watching are stupid because they amount of support from all across the world from multiple celebrities who have push for #Valmani has been way more and at the highest degree then the boys. DWTS must hate female excellent because the females were best dancers and we would have probably seen more stories and actually been more entertained by this lackluster bootlegged male mediocrity finale!!!

why I love Miraculous Ladybug

- character design + animation of characters and the scenery
- marinette and her relatableness  
- the fact that our main duo aren’t perfect and their mistakes/flaws are sometimes integral parts of the episode, showing that in order to improve yourself it’s necessary to make and learn from mistakes
- the diversity of the characters (and the fact that our main character is half-chinese)

Characters done most wrong by S3

1. Bellamy (takes place in mass murder all so Clarke can confront him about how he ruined all the good she and L.exa had done)

2. Lincoln (killed in a needlessly brutal and dehumanizing way after being sidelined for most of S3 AND 2)

3. Clarke (written more passively than ever in the series, literally referred to as a cheerleader by the showrunner, allows herself to be used as a political symbol and it being shown as a romantic/reverential act, previous medical genius thinks a chip is a person)

4. Raven (love interest dropped, hugely sidelined for more than half the season)

5. Octavia (shown abusing her brother with no remorse, two of her key relationships most likely irretrievably ruined)


Not on this list? The guest star who had an entire season written around their redemption and love life.

Last season I NEVER even CONSIDERED the possibility I would ever have to say this but we’re four episodes in to the second season and THIS ISN’T GAY ENOUGH

BOUEIBU NEEDS MORE GAY HOW COULD THIS BE??

I HAVEN’T GOTTEN MY DOKIDOKIS SINCE THE KINATSU IN FIRST EPISODE

what she says: I’m fine

what she means: I’m literally so nervous for Sherlock season 4 i mean I’m excited about the christmas special and ready to have some emotional debates over the return of John’s mustache but I’m also literally so nervous someone please tie me down. and benedict cut his hair and i can’t handle sherly without HIS PRECIOUS ANGEL CURLS I MEAN WTF. And will the christmas special somehow effect the outcome of the characters in season 4? Will it just be a giant paralleled hint? Will it have any effect on the current characters? Also, are you going to make johnlock basically nonexistent now that Mary’s here? Or is something going to happen with that character arc? Also, steven mofatt said “The first series was all about the beginning of their friendship. Second about the formative stages, the love and fear and loss and all that. The third was good days, me and my pal and my pal’s wife. Those are golden days. The missing element in a lot of Sherlock Holmes adaptations is allowing it to be funny. There’s a lot of humor in Sherlock Holmes, and it’s ignored in a lot of adaptations. [Season 4] is going to be… I suppose you’d say… consequences. It’s consequences. Chickens come to roost. It’s dark in some ways—obviously it’s great fun and a Sherlock Holmes romp and all that—but there’s a sense of… things… coming back to bite you.” Do you know what this means? i mean neither do I but i s2g that I’m not emotionally prepared for what it is somebody hold me. And I mean ffs could he be any more vague and broody, “dark consequences”. So if this is the “Darkest” season as he suggested then WTF were all the other seasons? Is it gonna be darker than season 1 and 2 because how much darker can you actually get I mean you’ve already hit the floor of hell (emotion-wise) and i did not wait 2 years for another season where everyone dies and comes back got life. I mean its cool that Moriartys back but i just wish that maybe you would stop playing with my emotions. I know that they said moriartys “definitely dead” but at this point if i trusted everything you said than i’d be stupid. And is that why you made the third season more catered towards the fans and lighthearted and altogether more like a giant fan fiction (not that I’m saying thats bad). Was that just a cheap trick to make people excited about getting back to fun stuff after the 3rd season? Im honestly so stressed right now and I need answers.

I really appreciate that you occasionally criticize the writing on GMW, because often in this fandom the writers are treated like infallible geniuses & to me that's just not the case. I've found Maya's identity crisis arc to be especially clumsy and opaque-- casual viewers shouldn't have to turn to analysis blogs to translate the plot points. If you were writing for the show, how would you have treated this storyline? Which POV would you have given the most weight to?

First of all, thank you so much. Second of all, this may be the best ask I have ever gotten. 

I just think that the first two seasons catered to multiple audiences pretty flawlessly. Casual viewers could enjoy what is right in front of them, while those of us actually invested in the show could dive deeper into the context of episodes depicting what was going to happen based on character trajectories, hidden Boy Meets World parallels, costuming, set design, dialogue, etc. It was all extremely streamlined. There was always a clear “surface” message for an episode, while there was also a clear underlying subplot for us to follow along with as the season progressed. I think that the writers did an excellent job setting up where these characters were headed while managing to teach us something completely relatable with the “social” aspect the show. Then they had to re write GM New Year and things got way off course for S3.

I’m not saying S3 has been terrible, because episodes like Permanent Record (and even Jexica) have been pretty stellar. But now those once clear subplots have become extremely convoluted. I think if you really analyze the show, you still can see what they are trying to do with this identity crisis: Maya found hope from Riley, got a little too deep into her world (Rileytown, as they call it) and now has to rediscover her original voice , in order to round herself out as a balanced individual. Unfortunately, if you are  a casual viewer at this point, it looks a lot like Maya actually did “become Riley” and that all of the people who love her really just want her to fail out of school and date boys that are terrible for her. 

I think Triangle is where it particulary started to get clumsy. I think that by focusing so deeply on Riley’s point of view about Maya’s identity issues, it complete invalidates the feelings of the person who is actually struggling through the conflict.This makes things confusing. Riley is written as an unreliable narrator often, but she also is known to her friends as the “person who always fixes things”. So what is the audience supposed to think? Is Riley right or wrong here? Did Maya really become Riley, and only like Lucas because she did? If you haven’t watched every single episode of GMW and understand how misguided Riley can tend to be, you may actually believe your protagonist. Riley has this extreme resistance for listening to Maya “scream”and as a result, the story(as well as the point) gets very, very convoluted. 

The strange thing is, they writers do have Mr. Jackson and Shawn make comments where they diagnose the situation correctly, ultimately showing that Maya just needs to learn balance and she hasn’t lost any of her growth. But Mr. Jackson and Shawn are both secondary characters in this show. If you blink, you miss the point. So what does that leave us with? That leaves us with Riley’s unreliable narration, something that normal viewers are not going to grasp, especially over a multi episode arc. 

If I had written Triangle, I would have botched that entire bay window scene between the two of them. Riley sounds crazy and Maya sounds logical but then the rest of the episode plays out to Riley’s favor. Honestly, I probably wouldn’t have written Triangle, period. Triangle made no sense to me at all until I watched Upstate and then went back and revisited it. You shouldn’t have to back track episodes in order of them to make sense. Upstate, in my opinion, gave a more clear and concise direction as to where the writers are trying to go with this.They really could have just started there. 

If NOTHING else, I definitely wouldn’t have Riley questioning how Maya feels about Lucas- “Do you like Lucas just because I do?”. And then Maya actually possibly agrees with that sentiment? What, writers?! We just spent an entire season building a relationship between Lucas and Maya, a very intricate and genuine one, one laced with Maya’s continuous attempts at suppressing her emotions just so we could bail out with “I just liked him because I became you”? If that’s really where we are going with this, you are using this plot as a copout. 

If that isn’t where we are going and they are leading us to a bigger lesson, I think they are dragging it out for too many episodes, where important story points are just getting lost in translation and signals are getting crossed. Regardless of whether Lucas picked Riley or not, this specific arc could have been figured out in a different way, and it should have been figured out probably by the end of last season. You can’t ignore everything you built so beautifully over the previous two seasons and then just destroy it to solve a conflict that’s been dragged out for too long. Well you can, but its frustrating. If we had solved this issue at the end of season 2, maybe by now we would be on to RILEY growing as a character. At this point, she’s almost a caricature of herself. I want to see her date Lucas and learn from the experience, I want to see her the way she was in Permanent Record, or even better the person she was in STEM. I want to get back to that GMW and I want them to stop trying so hard to tie things together in order to have everything “make sense”. 

Ultimately, I would have had that jelly bean scene happen sometime at the end of Season 2. I still would have had him pick Riley and then I would have used that to jumpstart Mayas identity crisis. A guy choosing your best friend over you, in any world no matter how much you love her, would be enough for anyone to go on a bit of a bender. This would then allow MAYA to question whether her feelings for Lucas were because she was in “Rileytown” for awhile, or if it was all genuine, rather than having Riley push that on her.  It just lends too much credibility to how Riley perceives things otherwise. I would also have Riley and Lucas finally try their relationship and ultimately fail, so that our protagonist(and Lucas for that matter) can continue to grow and move forward in other ways (Probably with the realization of Riarkle, possible reopening of the Lucaya chapter). Season 3 would still be dealing with feelings,but the characters wouldn’t be coasting, they would be growing, and their lessons in perception vs. reality would be ever evolving. 

What would YOU do, anon?

After yet another week of watching teen wolf social media fuck up and completely misread their fans, I don't think I've ever seen a social media team for a show have such a complete and utter disconnect with their fan base before as bad as the teen wolf one seems to have. Do you think I'm being too harsh on them? Or do you think that how they market the show online and who's actually watching the show are two completely different fan bases?

I think the social media team for Teen Wolf is just at a cross roads of how to act and in being there makes some dumb mistakes. I mean if I were them and I saw how vocal the Sterek fans got around season 2 I’d prob cater stuff to them as well but when the show doesn’t follow through it looks shallow. And then they back off so those fans feel neglected…it’s just a cycle. 

Same thing with them reblogging all this fan art and hiring fans, they want to be like hey fandom we see you and appreciate you…but sometimes it feels incredibly disingenuous. 

My main issue now has just been how utterly incompetent Rachel seems to be running the twitter account and how she always tweets something offensive every week like clockwork.

Also, what most marketing teams suck at is understanding exactly what fandom is. They’re just on the sidelines looking for ways to get people to watch and continue watching, not realizing that fans take things to heart. Like them taking a 100% back peddle from Sterek pimping in polls surely felt like a slap to those fans, much the same way Scott fans felt marginalized that the main character on the show wasn’t celebrated on the tumblr until the actor threw a tantrum. 

However I will say that despite their many faults, they are attempting to do their best. The show’s fandom has sort of grown wildly and they have to figure out how to cater to them, which is not an easy task when there are so many takes on the show.

Do you think we would be more accepting of Maya eating up so much of the storyline if we actually liked her character? I liked Shawn, and had no problem with him having his own storylines and getting a lot of screen time on BMW, but I still recognized Cory as the main character. I have never liked Maya and have always had a hard time watching her scenes(even before the triangle).

Yeah, I would definitely be less annoyed, but the thing is, it’s not really the amount of screen time dedicated to the character that’s pissing me off. It’s what the writers do with that screen time that bugs me. 

It’s the fact that she had a scene with Cory x Topanga in the opening credits, but Riley didn’t. It’s the fact that nothing is Riley’s and Riley’s alone - including her love interest. It’s the fact that Maya has a better relationship with Shawn, Topanga and Josh than Riley does. It’s the fact that Maya went from I would never go after Lucas and hurt you like that, to I know that going after Lucas would cause you pain, but that’s not going to stop me from making my feelings known. And it’s sure it just hit me that I went out with your ex while you still liked him and you stepped back for me, but I don’t care to acknowledge that or your pain.

It’s Topanga comforting Maya in front of Riley. College girls irrationally trying to set up Maya with Josh. Riley stepping back from her mutual thing with Lucas. And Shawn randomly falling for Katy in order to fulfill Maya’s wish of possessing a nuclear family. And Angela, an original bmw character coming back with the sole purpose of helping Maya with this.

It’s the fact that the season 2  narrative caters to Maya and treats her like more of a lead than Riley. Because the world revolves around her. 

That’s my issue. 

He has a very red voice. Tucked deep back just above his heart, shaking in the darkness until it spills into the air. Rage in his eyes infects you, and suddenly his cause is yours. The world has been unfair to him and if you could, you’d change the axis of his luck and cater the seasons to his liking. Once you saw him smile and spring rain came down fresh as air in an ocean. 

He tore salt from the earth and rubbed it across his skin, cleansing himself in the word of God and in his own blood. More blood has been spilled for less, you know, but you’d rather make a river from the innocent than let him continue militant in his campaign of self-flagellation. 

Your hands shake to hold him when he cries. There is no tragedy written to compare with his bloodshot eyes slipping shut, exhaustion from emotion lulling him to nightmare-ridden sleep. Would that you could crack his skull open and chase all the demons away. He’d have to let you first. 

The sun shines from his skin, new powers of creation laden in his touch. You once knew only how to destroy. His pride in you has made a fail safe to give you freedom. 

There are mourners somewhere holding a wake for the person you used to be, but here and now is your birth. You don’t spare thought to death when life is just finally starting to feel like it’s worth living.
