so much potential in this story

#SAVETHEPOWERRANGERS

It really saddens me to know due to people not give The Power Rangers 2017 film a chance that there’s a very small chance or no chance at all to getting a sequel. This film introduced the FIRST INDIAN, LGBTQ, AND AUSTIC POWER RANGERS! When casting for each power ranger the casting directors were not looking for any particular look for each ranger but who they thought was fit best for each character and they image they have portrayed for the yellow, pink, blue, black, and red ranger. The casting directors who picked Naomi Scott as the Pink Ranger, Ludi Lin as the Black Ranger, RJ Cyler as the Blue Ranger, Becky G as the Yellow Ranger, and Dacre Montgomery as the Red Ranger did a fantastic job on casting these people for their rolls. Each person listed here worked so well together on and off screen and even on and off the set.

TO THOSE WHO AREN’T WILLING TO GIVE THIS FILM A CHANCE BECAUSE THE ORGINAL POWER RANGERS IS A ‘KIDS SHOW’ GIVE IT A FUCKING CHANCE.

I’ve talked to many friends about Power Rangers film and some gotten negative and positive feedback from those people. This film has so much potential for a sequel and not only do I want a squeal but many other fans of this movie do as well. As for someone who is part of the LGBTQ community and know people who have autism it makes me so proud to know that the directors and writers of this film incorporated something so real into the film. A potential love story between Kimberly and Trini is someone many people want as well as I do would make it real due to best friends ( even if they just met not to long ago) developing feelings for each other whether it be the same gender or not.

I hoped to see more of these five amazing people who did such a wonderful job with the roles as Trini, Kimberly, Jason, Billy, and Zach.

These five people deserve to be back together on set for film a sequel for Power Rangers. Due to us not getting a sequel at all or very small chance at it proves that one, y'all won’t give a film a chance and two you only like diversity in a film as a thought.

To my fellow power ranger fans and followers please give this movie a chance and buy the DVD as well. YOU WON’T REGRET IT.

17. for the Salty Ask List

17. Instead of XYZ happening, I would have made ABC happen…

Instead of Regina being split into two and having a bullshit plot for most of S6 - I would have split the plot for 6 into 2 parts - the first dealing with Jekyll and Hyde and the Land of Untold Stories (SO much potential… that was dropped :|) and the second with Rumple as the big bad who was finally revealed as being an irredeemable dick (therefore not wasting time by introducing two new characters - BF and G - who I frankly cared little to nothing about).

i'm very happy your blog exists. i feel there is so much hate for Hanzo and he is my favourite male character in Overwatch. i love his design and story, and feel it's such a shame he's (and players who enjoy using him) always the butt of the joke. memes are great, sure, but i wish more people appreciated the elder Shimada. ; n ;

I want my blog’s legacy to be loving Hanzo when all is said and done so ty, dear

and BIG MOOD!!

If you take away all the fandom shit, Hanzo as a whole is a great, complex character that has wonderful potential and Michael Chu finally admitted in wanting to expand on him. He’s totally undeserving for the hate that he gets both game play and lore wise, like?? People hate you for playing him, people hate him because of ships, PEOPLE HATE HIM BECAUSE HE ALMOST KILLED GENJI, LIKE DID WE WATCH THE SAME SHORT???? 

lmao I’m afraid of people hating him getting across to Blizzard and they’re like, well, guess we won’t do much with him if people don’t like him… I can respect someone’s decision to not like something obviously, but Hanners gets too much flak for stupid™ shit

anonymous asked:

But what if our Cas is really gone and he never comes back and Misha is in the show as an alternate reality Cas like this would mean THE "profound bond" and years worth of connection doesn't exist anymore so it would be the easiest way to squash any remaining hope of canon Destiel forever.... i'm sad i never had much hope anyway but this... ugghhh :(

Nah, they’d never do that permanently. There’s too much drama in Cas returning and too much potential there. His story is faaaaar from over. Have faith. ;)

anonymous asked:

Character meme kazama chikage:)

Ohhhh yessss, my favorite!!! And one of the characters done the least amount of justice in both fanon and canon, if you ask me.

  1. He is the hero of his own story. Let’s face it. Kazama Chikage is pretty much a complete bastard, even on his own damn route. He’s so stubborn and set in his ways that he’s pretty near irredeemable. The thing is, he doesn’t think of himself as a bad person; he’s an Honorable Demon doing whatever he perceives as the Right Thing. He’s not some generic antagonist whose only agenda is Evil, even if he seems to be the go-to villain in Hakuōki (which is a terrible decision since he has so much more potential than that, but that’s another story).
  2. He never lies. He’s extremely honest, and always, always tells the truth as he sees it… which is most of the reason why he comes across so blunt and harsh all the time. He isn’t a liar, and he isn’t a fan of deception. He likes getting his own way, but he will not stoop to trickery to get it. He’s very straightforward with who he is, what he wants, and what he intends to do. And he prefers it when other people are the same way.
  3. He likes testing people. Even if he doesn’t lie, Kazama still enjoys testing and/or teasing people to get a reaction out of them. His raids on the Shinsengumi are all tests. His scene with Chizuru in Shimabara, you know the almost-kiss CG, was a test. He likes seeing exactly where the boundaries are by provoking people into showing him when he’s crossed their line, and using those tests to navigate interactions with them accordingly (because he likes to be In Control). So, although he doesn’t lie outright, he also isn’t always serious, if that makes sense.
  4. He’s definitely a virgin, ok. Like, I can’t even begin to count the number of things I’ve seen that describe him as ‘erotic’. Yeah, he’s handsome and his voice is seductive and he’s the stereotypical sadistic ‘bad boy’ in pursuit of Chizuru. That does not mean that he is some sort of hypersexual beast, because even his so-called lust for Chizuru is rooted in a more practical desire for her to become his wife to preserve their bloodlines; in his route, he swears not to touch her until she marries him. His integrity is extremely important to him, so I cannot possibly take that away from him by changing his immediate goal to something so shallow as sex. And as for my assertion that he is a virgin, there’s no way a proud demon like him would ever deign to give himself to anyone other than his wife—especially not a human, since there are so few female demons around. The man has no experience with women in any way, shape, or form. There’s just… no way.
  5. He doesn’t know how to express his emotions. In a healthy way, at least. And that lends itself to a complete lack of understanding of emotions in general. As a typically logical person (even if it is his own logic), he doesn’t understand Chizuru’s more emotional decision to stay with the Shinsengumi. They’re humans, right? How could she possibly decide to stay with them when he, a pureblooded demon, is ready and waiting to take her away? He isn’t well-equipped to use his words to prove points unless they’re backed up with a sword. This man has zero coping mechanisms. And don’t even get me started on how, as of all currently localized games and the anime, he has never once expressed that he actually has any kind of feelings for Chizuru, whether shallow or deep—even on his own damn route. Feelings are not his forte.

Honestly, the third point is the most important here. I’ve seen way too much emphasis on how seductive he is, when that’s just not what he’s like. Hopefully that’s enlightening as to how I prefer to write him!

Would you say ESO is worth getting even if one hates MMOs? ESO looks sorta fun but I hate MMOs so much. Would an MMO hater still enjoy the game or am I better off just waiting for the next single player Elder Scrolls game?

I mean, I barely played myself so my opinion is likely not one you should be seeking but it entirely depends on what you’re looking to gain from the experience. 

Roleplay? Perfect for Roleplaying. Hell, I’d say aside from the random idiots you WILL encounter, it’s the best title for roleplaying potential, plus being able to roleplay with others.

Gameplay? Lol no, unless you love MMO grindy stuff. 

Story and quests? Aside from the generic stuff, obviously I haven’t seen much, heard surprisingly awesome and good things, looking forward to finally diving in seriously myself, with Morrowind spearheading me into the title after years of holding firm, lol.

But it’s an MMO, so there is fetchy basic boring stuff, it’s the nature of the beast.

Lore, and nostalgia. That’s basically the main reason I’m caving. I’ve come to quite like TESO lore, and there’s no way I’m experiencing Morrowind lore second hand or years after everyone else has, this time.

new genre concept: soft apocalypse

the world as we know it has ended and mother nature starts taking back what’s hers. there are no zombies or cannibals or murderous bandits. the most valued members of the community are those who know how to garden and farm, sew and weave, treat wounds, work wood or build with bricks, cook from scratch. 

people bond together to begin rebuilding instead of killing each other. everyone teaches each other whatever they do know and works together to figure out the stuff none of them know. books become incredibly valued resources because they’re often the only way to learn critical information. if someone is elderly, disabled, or otherwise unable to work at the same level as most of the community, they’re taken care of by the others, not told any sort of “survival of the fittest” bs.

as the generations ware on, communities begin expanding into small cities. some of the settlements even find ways to repurpose solar or wind power on a small scale and have electricity in some of their buildings. storytellers wander the countryside telling tales of the old world in return for some hot stew or a place to rest for the night, and the mythos of the new world start to incorporate elements of the past. the only thing that remains constant is that humans survive, and they do it by working together.

It’s been 6 years and it still baffles me that OUAT had every opportunity to do something truly amazing and make the birth mom fall in love with the adoptive mom and let them be a happy family and raise their son together, but instead they just decided to go with the most boring hetero romance story that’s been told a million times before and is neither modern nor original. 

There are probs already posts like this but I haven’t seen one so ima say it anyways

They didn’t design Keith’s dad to look similar to Shiro on accident okay hear me out

It’s so clear to me that Keith does miss and want his father around. The pained look on his face when he says ‘of course I do’ in his little hallucination dream sequence makes that painfully obvious. In Keith’s bio on the Voltron site it says that he joined the garrison after being orphaned at a young age.
So what I’m thinking is… little newly orphaned Keith joining the garrison because he has nowhere else to go/live and he misses his father. And then he meets shiro and imprints on him because he makes the connection in his brain like ‘looks like father = new father figure’
Keith looks up to shiro and finds this paternal bond with him, and Shiro takes Keith under his wing. That’s why their father/son/brother dynamic is so important to the story and honestly I think it has so much potential to be interesting as long as they write it properly. It’s so painfully clear that they see eachother as family and I want more info about it!!

I talked to my uncle/3rd-best-friend about how is Danny Phantom and how is the Phandom, and this is his opinion:

About the show:

“Vlad is right. Fuck the Fenton parents.“

“Wow, they reversed the popular-girl-and-poc-character by making Paulina the most popular girl whilst the blond-white-blue-eyed is her minion.”

“Ember is hot.“

“Sam is cool. I like her.”

“This could be so cool if DC put it’s hands on it and made it officially a dark show.“

On ‘Shades of Grey’ “Wait, she canonically tortured him?!”

“The parents want WHAT?!“

“WAIT, all of his enemies know hid secret identity BUT not his parents?!”

On Danielle “Well, fucking hell, that girl is gonna grow up with a lot of traumas and seeking male aprobation. Which member of the animation staff was letting loose their own traumas?“

On Cujo “Hey, the puppy’s story is sorta cute…”

On Poindexter “Wait… did he commit suicide…?“

“This has a lot of potential for a children cartoon.”

“THIS SHOW IS SO FUCKING TWISTED, WHY DID THEY PUT IT AS A SIMPLE CARTOON?“


Now, on the Phandom:

“The creator provoked a Shipps War? Didn’t he know that you can’t decide how the fans shipp?”

“Vivisections-what?“

“Oh, forget the traumatized little girl, WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU?”

“This is way too much gore for a children cartoon.“

“You are all crazy.”

“Ok, yes, this show has dark potential, but you are way too much.“

After some phanarts “Oh… what is wrong with you?”

“And you are part of all this?“ “A little part, but yeah.” “Ok, I’m paying for your therapy.“

After years of seeing references to the Aaron Ehasz shipping Zutara, I finally set out to find out more about this, and all of the old feels are back. So, so much wasted potential. Such a great, compelling story that could have been told–that never will be told. And not just the Zuko and Katara stuff. Iroh backstory? Toph working on her issues with her parents? Aang grappling with the consequences of energybending? Ty Lee’s airbending decent being relevant? Sign me up!

I just…ergghhhh! I am pretty sure I will forever be in mourning for Ehasz’s Book Four.

Season 2 Klance and Shallura Analysis

Alrighty so this is another one of those voltron prediction/theory/rant its basically an analysis of some parts of season 2 not all bc that would take me forever but just a few key parts (aka the key to my heart Klance okay bye). So grab a drink because this is an essay folks that I spent way too much time on than I should have. Let’s begin shall(ura) we? (I hate myself)

So I’m gonna start with a very good and very platonic (in my opinion) relationship, which is K//allura. Okay okay, they have so much potential to be bffs its exciting.

First off, I took the whole Galra Keith and Allura tension as a message the creators wanted to convey to the viewers about judging someone merely by their race. Honestly I really love it when tv shows, especially kids shows, integrate bigger ideas like racism into their stories. Its subtle yet satisfying and I really really appreciated this particular scene with Keith and Allura.

Allura is describing her hatred for the Galra which is basically her hatred toward a part of Keith that he can’t even control. He never chose to be Galra, it’s just in his blood. And obviously that hurts him because its a part of who he is:((

Like ugh this is so sweet guys. So as you know from the title of this, I don’t ship K//allura at all, but this scene was very special to me in a much different way than how I feel from a romantic interaction. Like this is a genuine moment between two characters that are haunted by the same group, the Galra. Keith is part Galra, he has a part of the enemy inside of him which is probably causing inner turmoil maybe even self-hatred within him. And Allura as we know hates the Galra for killing her entire civilization. These two have a deep character development from this scene alone. We see that Allura has matured from being bitter toward Keith for being Galra to understanding that a person should not be judged by their blood but who they truly are. Also we see that Keith has accepted the fact that yes he may have a part of the enemy within him, but that does not mean he has to be anything like them. He is also pretty stand-off ish and doesn’t like opening up necessarily. He’d much rather keep to himself (other than Shiro), but he is finally opening up to someone else as well. He forgives Allura immediately despite how offensive her bias opinion was towards him. I just love Keith. 

So these two are super close now or should be? Which is pretty awesome considering… Keith is super close to Shiro too. SO now he’s close to both Shiro and Allura who are both, might I remind you all, much older than would be appropriate for him to have a romantic relationship with. Anywho, this reeks of space parents and an angsty teen.

Which then leads to Shallura and why I believe it is pointing toward canon woot woot love these goobers. Alright so I’m solely focusing on a few scenes in particular where my heart was pounding and my eyes watering and I was clutching my heart while screaming at my computer screen. The feels man the feels. 

I just about swooned at this. Like these underrated moments are what really get me. Like I love the whole Shiro taking Allura’s hand and telling his wife to get some rest, that got me feeling some sort of way. But this scene guys. In the heat of battle, Shiro is concerned for Allura. He’s basically saying “I wish I could be there to take care of her but Coran you have to do it for me.” I cannot guys I cannot.

She could’ve called for anyone else. Was it Keith? NOPE IT WAS SHIRO, PEOPLE!!

Never forget honestly. This is the face of a broken man. I have never seen Shiro more distressed and this pic doesn’t do it justice but when you watch this scene his eyes are glistening like he’s about to cry. The calm, collected leader Shiro is on the verge of tears? omg I can’t. 

Honestly this is my weakness. When a character gets hurt and another character goes ballistic and rages. Like Shiro is so determined to kick ass in this scene and avenge Allura. End me. 

For Shallura, they both have an understanding that they need each other. They are each other’s support especially considering they both are the leaders and are the older ones of the group. They help bear each other’s responsibility which is much different than Klance’s dynamic. For Klance it is much more playful and focused on chemistry. And also because they are younger it is much more naive and afraid. Both Keith and Lance obviously care for each other but they try not to show it especially when the other is present. They are self-conscious and afraid of what the other will think, that the other doesn’t feel the same way. Shiro and Allura, however, both know that they care for each other and they aren’t afraid to express it through calling each other’s name during battle and other small gestures like that.

Which I forgot to mention that everyone is freaking out over a simple hug between Allura and Keith but like have you noticed that both Klance and Shallura have not had a proper hug yet? Ummmm is this a slow burn fic or… Seriously tho, I’ve watched plenty of shows and animes (I’m shameless) to know that usually the canon couple does not have that special hugging and seal-the-deal scenes quite so early in the series because all the anticipation builds up until the perfect scene is created. I swear a tender Klance and Shallura moment is coming I swear. 

Which then leads to my mains, Klance. I just have to admit that one of the many reasons I love these two is because of the fact that Keith and Lance are like my fav characters of all time. And I can relate to both of them at the same time idk. Anyway, back to what’s important: evidence of canon.

So… Do I really need to show these? Like these scenes do not need further analysis it just reeks of dorks-in-love-who-don’t-know-they’re-in-love-with-each-other-and-who-don’t-know-that-the-other-is-in-love-with-them. Man I love Klance. 

So instead let’s over-analyze a few other scenes…

“Babe I thought you would have my back.”

“First you forget the bonding moment now this.”

Look this one is a stretch lol but just look at Keith’s face. When you watch this scene, Keith goes from his signature annoyed and irritated look to a betrayed and frustrated look. Maybe that’s just me, but aside from that, he doesn’t necessarily look pissed off, his face changes from his usual pissy look to something much different. Obviously what Lance says does calm him down enough not to yell back at him, but he also looks frustrated because no one understand him or his secret about his past with the Blade of Mamora and all that good junk at this point. I think it is especially bothering him that he can’t just upfront say what he is hiding, and instead he knows he is looking like a fool in front of them (and especially Lance). 

Body language is important. Keith turns around as not to face them, I think he is hurt because obviously this whole situation is important to him but not even Lance seems to understand him. And I seriously think Keith and Lance have like this weird mutual understanding usually. Like ya they fight I get that, but usually they kinda get what the other is trying to get at I feel, idk maybe thats just me. 

Let’s take a moment to appreciate how blue Lance’s eyes are in this… I love my son…

So like if you look closely at this scene you notice that when Lance is making eye contact with Keith, Keith has his typical “I hate you Lance but really I don’t but I’m gonna pretend like I do” face. But right when Lance looks away Keith actually looks sad and kinda hurt. Out of everyone, he hates that Lance is the one revealing his flaws, and even he knows its true. Lance stop insulting your husband. He’s actually sensitive about what you think of him:(((

Uhhh lowkey I think Keith is just as insecure as Lance is, but he just doesn’t show it… Oh the Klangst!

And another thing we get to see in Season 2 is that Lance is showing ALOT of concern of Keith’s wellbeing which is pretty big if you ask me because season 1 was basically Pining!Keith worried about his boyf. Now we get to see some worried Lance.

Honestly, like I mentioned before, the creators are going for a slow burn. And both Shallura and Klance definitely have their little hints and subtle moments that are very easily missed. But that’s the point. If it’s too obvious then the ending won’t be as powerful, the couples won’t be as special. Also, the development of both of these couples is going slow but very well thought out and I actually appreciate it a lot. I know for a fact K//allura won’t be canon because their interaction is too straight-up(lol) for it to be canon. It could be said as “predictable” but idk I just get a total brotp vibe from them nothing more, plus if they were hinting at canon for them, they wouldn’t have them hug so soon. Also their reactions and facial expressions toward the hugs and touches would be very different. It wasn’t tender like the Bonding Moment™ or the Shallura hand grab™. Facial expressions and reactions are key! Keith looked indifferent when Allura fell into his arms and their hug was sweet yes but it wasn’t hesitant and nervous like a couple who just discovered their feelings for one another would react. It was a hug between two people who recognize their bond. It was a strong bond yes, between two lovers? no I don’t think so. Allura, herself even confirmed how she now viewed the paladins as her family and it just felt to much like a familial bond I couldn’t see anything more to it. If Kallura was to be canon they would have more subtle moments than in-your-face big moments. Little details in the way Keith or Allura would look, or in the background they would be gazing at each other (*cough* like Keith does to Lance *cough*) It’s the little things that count, remember that.

The only ship I was concerned that would be canon was Sh//eith, because they have an obvious bond that is much different than everyone else. But ever since the “Shiro, you’re a bro to me” happened, it basically killed any chance of it happening. Which in my opinion is much better because Klance and Shallura have so much potential and their stories can expand and be written so well. As it is, the creators are doing a really good job at unraveling their stories slowly but just enough as to give the viewers hope which is the goal usually for tv shows. They try to make the shippers suffer sometimes *sigh*. 

Anywho, if you read up to this point thanks for listening to me rambling about space parents and space ranger partners lol! I loved season 2 because it revealed a lot about Keith not only through the obvious backstories and blade of mamora stuff but also through his interactions. And yes Keith is my fav lol. Anyways, I am 99.9% sure Klance and Shallura are gonna be canon but by no means am I saying you shouldn’t ship what you want. You do you, folks. Ship on and enjoy the show!

One of my favorite things about Sense8 is how they don’t stick to stereotypes the media has about Korean, and really all Asian, women. Often media panders to fetishist by making Asian women submissive, accommodating, and meekly flirtatious. But in Sense8, the South Korean character, Sun Bak, is a business women who is damn good at her job and works hard to try and break the glass ceiling. She was also a champion kick boxer in her youth and kept training in the sport as a passion despite her father’s disapproval. And she is also a ride or die bitch who is extremely loyal and truly kind hearted. In the show there are two very strong built guys, a cop and a gangster who aren’t strangers to a fight, as well as two other men who are also in fit shape, but it is Sun who is always at the forefront of the whoop ass. All the men know that if they’re in trouble, Sun is the one they want to come and help them. She isn’t fetishized. She isn’t weak. Alternatively, she isn’t portrayed as some evil kung fu assassin throwing ninja stars and using katanas and other amalgamations of differing Asian cultures that aren’t specifically from Korea, She’s just a woman who enjoys a sport and is able to utilize it to it’s fullest potential. And it shows how intelligent she is to do so. Yet the show also shows how the patriarchy hinders her from reaching her full potential which makes Sun’s story extremely relatable. Basically Sun Bak deserves so much happiness.  (she also really loves her dog)

'Once Upon a Time' Creators Explain the "Next Chapter" to Come in Season 7

The Hollywood Reporter turned to series creators/showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis to go inside the decision to overhaul the series, what it means for old characters and why fans should continue to tune in for season seven of Once.

Are you approaching the story of adult Henry as a total reboot of the original Once Upon a Timepremise?

Kitsis: Kind of, yeah!

Horowitz: I hesitate to use the word “reboot.” We’re more thinking about it as a hybrid of a lot of things. We’re paying homage to the original premise, but there are certain characters who are returning and some who are not. It’s a combination of a lot of things, but what we’re trying to do is go in a new direction but stay true to the spirit of what the show has always been.

Will you be recasting any other characters as adults?

Kitsis: Potentially, yes. Not right away. That’s the biggest one.

Horowitz: We want to keep under wraps how we get to Henry grown up and what that means for Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle), who are returning regulars. There’s stuff that we’re excited to unveil, but it’s not about recasting so much as we’re hoping to open up the universe more.

How do you plan to tell stories about Regina, Rumple and Hook without some very important family members?

Kitsis: The answer to that question will be answered next year. We’d rather show it than tell it.

Henry’s got a daughter. Will we be meeting her mother?

Kitsis: Yes, next year. [Lucy’s] mother and Henry will be a very epic love story in the tradition of Once Upon a Time, just like his grandparents. We can’t forget, he’s the grandchild of Prince Charming, which technically makes him Prince Charming Jr.

Horowitz: Junior junior. Prince Charming III.

How many new roles are you looking to create with six series regulars leaving?

Horowitz: I don’t think we want to confirm exactly right now, but we will say there will be more regulars, and they’ll be more recurring characters as well, and we’ll probably make some announcements as the summer progresses.

Besides Jennifer Morrison, who will return for one episode, who has promised to pop back in?

Kitsis: Everybody has said they’d be willing to come back. As our show is and has been for six years, we see people come back all the time. Rose McIver came back and she is the lead of her own show [The CW’s iZombie, which was also renewed], so we hope to be seeing everybody.

Horowitz: While we tried to really wrap up a lot of their stories and give a nice send off to these characters we’ve loved being with for six years, they’re still part of the universe, so hopefully we’ll be seeing different people at different times.

Fans, as would be expected with six regulars leaving, are upset. How do you get them to come back for season seven?

Kitsis: At a certain point after six seasons, some people’s journeys needed to have an endpoint. We believe that what we are going forward and doing is what people love about the show, which is a show about hope and fairytale characters trying to find themselves in the real world. We’re going to return to more storytelling like that, and if they love the original Once, then hopefully they will enjoy the next chapter and the new universes and adult Henry.

Horowitz: We’ve been so blessed to have such an incredibly passionate fan base that feel so strongly about all these characters that we totally hear and feel the emotion at hearing that some of these characters won’t be there every week. But some will and then there’s always chances of seeing some again. But really, I think as Eddy said, we’re trying to go on in the spirit of what we started in season one and telling those kind of stories again with a new canvas that’s really exciting to us as storytellers. We really hope that the audience will feel the same way as they see these new stories that we start to tell.

Kitsis: Part of it really is, creatively, wanting to end one chapter and begin a new one and get back to that fresh, original idea that resonates.

Once did hit a string of series lows in season six. How do you hope to bring new viewers back and broaden the show to those who haven’t tuned in before?

Kitsis: You can’t really control ratings. Every year ratings go down and everyone reacts like it’s the first time. I think that though ratings are down, what’s interesting is the fan base continues to be up, so we’ll still trend and all those things. That being said, we feel it’s a great way next year for new viewers to come in and not be burdened with knowing the six years of mythology. You can come in fresh next year, and I think if you like fairytales and you like magic, you should check it out.

Horowitz: The live, next day ratings — we all know they’re becoming more archaic … We’ve been so encouraged that regardless of what numbers are saying, we have an incredible fan base that’s been so passionate all these years. To us, it just feels like a miracle that it’s season seven and we’re working on it. We’re so grateful to the fans who have stuck with us, so that we’re here.

You’re heading into next week’s finale not knowing if the show’s going to be renewed. Do you feel like the finale gives closure, or are you guys charging head-on into a potential fifth season

DE CAESTECKER: You can always see more. Even when the show ultimately does end, there’s always still stories to be told, so.

HENSTRIDGE: Yeah, we haven’t had our wedding scene, we’ve not had a birth scene.

Wow, that would be quick!

HENSTRIDGE: Oh, yeah. You know, there’s just a lot that can happen. Maybe that’s what season 5 is, just like the domestic bliss.
DE CAESTECKER: I’d love to see a kid in the show. That’d be great, wouldn’t it?
HENSTRIDGE: Yeah.
DE CAESTECKER: Like you doing all your lab stuff and whipping up kids.

Summary: Bartender!Dean AU where he has a bet with you each night to see who can keep a straight face the longest. In Sam’s words, “This was the weirdest damn flirting he’d ever seen.”

Word Count: 2351

Warnings: Fluff!

A/N: I have this headcanon that if it wasn’t for Azazel and the hunting life, Dean would be the happiest guy out there. He would just be loving life and laughing around and basically be a force of nature that always gets what he wants. He would be unstoppable and would be so damn happy. So that’s the version of Dean that I imagined for this AU.

Version en Español: El Otro Lado de la Barro


“Sam, my man!” Terrance bellowed when Sam walked into the bar. Upon seeing his old friend, Sam broke into a smile and gripped his hand, pulling him in for hug. “Our boy Dean didn’t tell me you were in town.”

“Well, finals are finally over and Dean’s been after me about checking out his new bar since he opened it.” Sam glanced around the dimly lit room and couldn’t help but feel impressed. “So I thought I’d surprise him.”

For someone who hadn’t set foot in a college classroom, Dean was actually a pretty good businessman. This was the third bar that he’d opened in Eastern Kansas, and every bar that he owned was doing ridiculously well. When Dean asked Sam to take a look at his finances and make sure that everything looked good, Sam started rethinking his own life plan. If Dean was making that much per bar, then what in the world was Sam thinking, digging himself deeper into debt to get a law degree?

Speaking of Dean, Sam glanced around the packed room in search of his sandy-haired brother. As usual, he was behind the bar talking to a chick. But he wasn’t smiling or joking around like he usually did in the company of any living, breathing female.

“What the hell?” Sam asked, drawing Terrance’s attention. “He’s having an actual conversation with her instead of just flirting?”

  • What she says: I'm fine
  • What she means: of all the arcs in it, Danganronpa 3's Despair Arc has to be the worst. I mean Hope Arc was bad, but seeing how it had 30 minutes to wrap up the entire series after everything else had been screwed up so badly it was already dead on arrival but Despair Arc honestly had so much potential that it threw away on nothing. What was the point of calling it the remnants of despair story if all it focused on was the new characters who Kodaka himself admitted were only created to be killed off? Even if the whole point of this was to focus on the Future Arc characters backstories why shove aside characters like Gozu or Bandai or MIAYA?! One of the creators of the Neo World Program? And if it's true Kodaka didn't care about them and wanted to tell the Ultimate Despairs story then why are they shoved in the background and treated as comic relief who have one-off personality traits? People have spent years theorizing about how they fell into despair, the characters all have backstories and quirks the story is RIGHT THERE waiting to come out but the best he can come up with is anime? Anime that we explicitly see makes people do things against their will when so much time was spent making the characters struggle with the fact that they had to fucking own up to their actions and fix their shit themselves? It's like he couldn't decide who's story he wanted to tell so he went "fuck it" and made it both but even then, why waste time on pointless shit. We could've focused on plenty of things other than sexy soup. What was the point of showing us the student council killings when we literally know nothing about the characters and it gives us no new information? Why rewrite the information surrounding Chiaki and have her take spotlight when she already had so much of her own screentime and development in her own game, and make that information go AGAINST her development? Why spend an entire episode reintroducing characters who we already know? Why focus so much on Seiko, Ruruka and Izayois conflict when it gets revealed to be a petty misunderstanding because Nagito couldn't keep his marshmallow hair out of trouble again? Hell, all three of them die anyways so it's pointless. Imagine if Andou had a redemption in future arc. That would be great to see! And back to the topic of Nagito, that incident could've even been used to pull more of the class into despair while Chisa was gone. Even the twilight syndrome could've been used to pull or at least kickstart the fall into despair of six, count em, SIX people! But no, it's forgotten about and two characters find Chiakis death more despair inducing than the death of family members, or people that they've known for way longer than her. This entire universe just revolves around Chiaki. Even Hajime who had a close relationship with every SDR2 character only gets to meet her. This whole anime was just so scared of giving us any sort of development for these characters, good or bad, that it simply chose the easy way out with a disappointing story about brainwashing and footage of Izuru Kamukura saying the word memes.
