the actors did such a good job with them

rakel (linn) was on ‘harm og hegseth’ podcast and talked about skam and her own life. she said that isak and even her favorite couple, and cried when she was watching the scene where isak was running to even in ‘o helga natt’ scene
and it was a little bit strange to her to be a part of this complicated story that told about bipolar disorder and suicide attempt (i guess she was talking about ‘o helga natt’ again), but actors did a really good job, and tarjei is a really nice person, and henrik is really friendly, and they both incredible actors (and morten was like ‘yes, yes’ like he was strongly agree with her and was praising them too)

Go Go ‘Power Rangers’ (2017 Review)

Is this good? Is this bad? Will my inner-child allow me to judge this appropriately?

“Power Rangers” is a reboot of the classic 1990s action-packed children’s show “Mighty Morphin Power Rangers,” which in turn is based on the Japanese tokusatsu “Super Sentai Series.” It’s directed by Dean Israelite and stars a cast of young actors, as well as Bryan Cranston, Bill Hader and Elizabeth Banks. The film is set in the small, fictional town of Angel Grove, where local high school students Jason Scott, Kimberly Hart and Billy Cranston (Dacre Montgomery, Naomi Scott and RJ Cyler, respectively) are all caught up in detention. Through a series of shenanigans, they come across Trini and Zack (Becky G and Ludi Lin, respectively) as they all discover an ancient, otherworldly construct. It’s there where they meet Zordon (Cranston) and his robot assistant Alpha 5 (voiced by Hader), and attain the responsibility of becoming a powerful team known as the Power Rangers, and to stop the destruction of an ancient, powerful witch known as Rita Repulsa (Banks). 

This is the absolute perfect “what if” movie. The answer to “what if they remade ‘Power Rangers’ for adults” question. This is the film we asked for, albeit cautiously. We really owe it to franchises such as the “Transformers” series, because without them, this film would be seen as an impossible reach.

Being a millennial, I was very much a child when “Power Rangers” had its long television run, and I stayed true through each incarnation, from “Mighty Morphin” to “Lightspeed Rescue,” and considered myself a retired fan after “Dino Thunder” (I was already in middle school at the time). So yes, shameful as it is, I know my shit. As you can see, I want this to be good. But was it?

Yes. Surprisingly, it was pretty good. It’s not shockingly “I thought this was going to be shit but it ended up being amazingly amazing” good. It’s just good.

Here’s one thing that the film does better than the TV show: the acting. In a great departure from the “Saved by the Bell” mood that the 90s actors gave us, we now have grounded, realistic, rebellious teenagers. These new actors fit the “teenagers with attitude” description way better than the 90s actors ever did. You have Montgomery as Jason, playing the rebel who ends up having to deal with the most responsibility. Scott plays Kimberly, the girl who does a good job of not just being the obligatory female casting, or the fighting damsel-in-distress, unlike the original. The dialogue between these two is usually filled with charm, whether its casual banter or a proclamation of their contempt for Angel Grove. 

But they do something different with the rest of the cast, which helps to modernize them. Cyler as Billy provides the humor and keeps the grittiness from ever getting lower and lower. Of the five teenagers, he is the one with the most charisma But he also serves to represent autistic teens everywhere. Yes, unlike the television counterpart, they made the Blue Ranger autistic, which is a pretty bold and commendable step for something based off a children’s property.

To keep the ball rolling, they then make Becky G’s Trini represent lesbians and confused, oppressed teenagers everywhere. Okay, this film had me at shedding light on autism, but encouraging more LGBT representation? Hats off to you, Lionsgate and Saban. Despite this, I found Becky G’s performance to be slightly annoying until about halfway through the movie, when they developed her much more, and gave her a more integral role in the plot. 

While I praised the rest of the cast, I’d have to drop the axe on Ludi Lin as Zack, the Black Ranger.  Compared to all these convincing performances, Lin’s is absolutely haphazard. The way he is introduced is to set up how much of a cocky outsider he is, so naturally he’s by himself. He then starts speaking to himself, which is one of my absolute biggest pet peeves in a movie. I despise movie moments where normal-functioning people start speaking or quipping to themselves, the only sensible reason being that the writers assume the audience is too dumb to know what the character is thinking. I get it if a character has schizophrenia or another mental illness, or if the words are limited to comedic inner-banter, but not in this case. He’s someone with decent social-competence and no reason to quarrel with himself, other than provide exposition to the audience.

But like Trini, I did find him to be much less annoying when he opened up. They gave him a pretty touching backstory with his own troubles, and they make his motivations really apparent. And just to keep the ball rolling, he’s also the most foreign one of the group, being bilingual, unlike the original black ranger. Now that I think about it, many of the Power Ranger series’ casts don’t feature any overtly foreign characters, apart from maybe of an alien race. 

That is precisely why this casting works. Whether or not you find these characters annoying, you can’t doubt that they’re there for a good reason, and you might even warm up to them as the movie progresses. They also help to introduce bouts of political correctness, but they aren’t preachy or condescending about it (which is really the only good way to go about political correctness). They represent people of various colors, mental states and social capabilities, showing (but not telling) that everyone is capable of extraordinary things as long as they have camaraderie.

I can’t say much about Cranston as Zordon. It’s a great homage, seeing as how Cranston has actually been a part of “Power Rangers” since the original television show, where he voiced many of the villains they face. I do love his voice-work here, and while it took some getting used to, I ended up really liking how they presented him. Rather than a chubby, floating head in a tube, they made him manifest into a wall, kind of like one of those pinpression toys. Not to mention they could have easily made him a one-dimensional character. But they went above and beyond to give him his own arc, his own set of feelings and doubts, and a world of lore behind him.

If you thought Alpha 5 was annoying in the television show, then you can rest your worries because Bill Hader fixed him up good. The original’s voice was so high-pitched and screechy; basically in typical 90s fashion (or how the 90s thought Aliens would sound like). This time, he just kind of does the same thing he did as Fear from “Inside Out,” except less screaming. His design had me slightly worried but I got used to it.

Now, Elizabeth Banks as Rita Repulsa has me split down the middle. On the one hand, I do like that at least ONE person in this entire film is trying to recall the absurdity and campiness of the original series. At the same time, I found her to be over-the-top, and incredibly outlandish compared to the rest of the grounded cast. She is guilty of overacting here, which is both a blessing and a curse. The prosthetics on her are amazing though, from both start to finish. She starts out as an outright horror character, which is something I didn’t expect to see even in the gritty version of a children’s property. 

If you kept up with me for this long, you know that a recurring theme here is that this film takes several risks that are rather uncharacteristic of a children’s property. Sure, there are hints of silliness to try and match the youthful appeal of the original, but they also throw in more mature bits of humor, about things such as drug tests and jacking off a cow (no joke). Me personally, I welcome these jokes. If anything, this is much more of a film for the adults who grew up watching “Power Rangers,” rather than children. The maturity really shines through in the form of character development and chemistry.

I must say that if you are bringing a child to watch this, keep in mind there will be mild swearing, and several mature jokes.

A common criticism (ad nauseam, pretty much) is that this film is a forced collision between two different movies. Two thirds of the movie is essentially the origin story, which focuses mainly on character development. At the same time, this is the section that appeals to the audience the most, whether you’re fans of the original or not. No one comes into anything titled “Power Rangers” and expects to feel for the characters. But through one particular scene where all the characters develop a kinship, we develop a peculiar attachment to each of them. It was at this moment that I’m glad these people are the ones I’m spending five more movies with (Yup, that’s right).

But when it sticks to the original, it definitely sticks, and that’s where the last third of the movie comes in. If you’re looking for cool looking suits fighting monsters with martial arts and gymnastics, you will get it. If you’re looking for giant robot dinosaurs battling another giant monster, you will get it. And MOST OF ALL, if you want to, at least once, hear the iconic theme song, you will get it. In all it’s pure, epic goodness.

But this is where I have to defend my appreciation for this movie, because many people will come in accusing me of being “blinded by nostalgia.” Despite having these borrowed features from the original show, there is really nothing nostalgic about it. The action here is far better than most of the show’s episodes. There is no silliness to be had apart from what would be silly by realistic standards (as opposed to having two obligatory bully characters).

Even some elements taken from the show are vastly different. Case in point: Rita, who in this film is actually getting shit done by herself rather than sitting up in some moon tower yelling at everyone.

Even the formula of the show is broken up here. Back then, everything was so fast-paced to where every time a new series was brought in, the new team of Power Rangers would unrealistically form intimate familial connection and extraordinary abilities within 20 minutes. This film actually shows you that the Power Rangers had to train for this, both physically and mentally. They didn’t just have these abilities bestowed upon them as a result of the plot rushing it together. You see them work for it, which is something I really appreciated about it.

I had to bring that up because many of the people who didn’t like this film will be quick to see reactions like mine and guilt me for “nostalgia.” But that “tone difference” that they’re faulting this for is the reason why you can’t pin nostalgia on this. All that means is that everything I liked about this film has been on its own merits, maybe (at most) perpetuated by quick little homages to the original. 

I suppose before I wrap this up I should mention one more thing. Not really a problem, but more like something I wish happened: I wish they played the theme song more. It was wonderful hearing the iconic theme song, perfectly borrowed from the 1995 film, and at the height of its “Power Ranger-ness.” But I felt that if they really were gonna throw it in there, they should have totally owned it and at least left it playing for a bit longer. If not that, then at least make an instrumental cover to play in the background during the climax, rather than GODDAMN KANYE.

This is a film that has fans and critics alike split down the middle, but it’s pretty clear that everyone who hates it is hating it for the same two reasons: (1) It has a massive tone-clash towards the end, and (2) It caters way too much toward product promotion for Krispy Kreme donuts. I do agree with the latter, make no mistake. But when I hear people complain about this tone-clash, it reminds me of people who complained about the “slow parts” of every other superhero film, whether it’s “Captain America: Civil War,” or “Batman v Superman.” Apart from being a “Power Rangers” movie, this is also an origin story film. And for something as ridiculous as “Power Rangers,” it definitely requires a slow initiation process. To get us going on a six-movie deal, the creators will have to help casual viewers acclimate to the premise, because chances are the naysayers are the ones who skipped out on this franchise as children, and therefore missed their window of opportunity. Ironic how a movie based on a children’s property requires a mature level of patience from the audience.

As I said before, if you came into this wanting to see colored suits, martial arts, explosions and giant robots, you will get it. If you’re dragged into this film but appreciate elements like character development and chemistry, you will get that too. As someone who enjoys both, I actually would go so far as to say I loved this movie. I don’t care if I’m alone on this, but I can comfortably say that I loved the “Power Rangers” movie.

What  I liked about 12x12

(first notes after watching)

Holy hell, what a ride! I loved every second of this.

—————————I LOVE YOU!!!!! But I’m getting ahead of myself …—————————-

Tarantino: As a kid of the 90s, these movies were the benchmark for great cinema for me. So I enjoyed this a great deal. From the camera angles to the music cues to that awesome slomo of Dean, Sam, Mary, Wally and Cas to the small details like the glowing box Crowley gave to Ramiel (as a throwback to the suitcase in Pulp Fiction). At no point did it feel like a cheap copy but always like a love letter and an homage. Well done, Davy Perez and Richard Speight jr.

Cinematography: Which brings me to my next point – that camera work! I mean we know the attention to detail is out of the park with this show, but the shots in the diner and the fight scenes in Ramiel’s house were fantastic even by those standards. Great editing, too! The first hard cut from the diner to Ramiel’s house stands out, and the cuts to the music for Crowley’s first meeting with the prince of hell.

Mythology: Speaking of that. It’s always a gamble to bring new adversaries into play, but I think Davy Perez did a very good job with this. The background for the princes fit well into canon as far as I can see (I’ll have to consult the verdict of the specialists later) and sounded coherent. Ramiel was a three-dimensional villain and the actor did an amazing job! Favorite line: “Three humans with one good liver between them and a busted up angel” – new catchphrase!!! And there are two more princes – so much new material!

Mary: Even if I don’t like her working behind the boys’ backs, I appreciate that she’s getting her own storyline and the way she held her ground against Mr. Ketch. Her just driving over Ramiel was awesome, too.

Crowley ex machina: That was a great twist imo and the throwback to his history with Ramiel was well done, too. I always like to see characters get fleshed out through good storytelling. Just as we saw with Rowena last week, Crowley showed a massive development with this is my book, because the wise thing to do would have been to vanish and hide from Ramiel. Also: “What’s up with feathers?”

CAAAAAAAASSS: Wow, that hurt. “You’ve changed me.” *Gross sobbing* Seriously, that was the best kind of heart-wrenching angst. The line about how this was the best part of his life … I don’t think he stated it that clear before. Misha was amazing and all that gore looked positively disgusting – kudos to the make-up department!

Cas and Dean: (Cas looks at Sam, then Mary) YOU’RE MY FAMILY. (looks down, cut to Dean, who doesn’t meet his eye). I LOVE YOU. (still Dean, still not looking at Cas, lips moving as if he wants to say something) I LOVE ALL OF YOU. (Dean again, then Sam). AAHHHH, the feels. I’m gonna need every slow motion analysis of this scene as soon as I post this and can go through my dash. And: “No.” - “Yes.” And: “Let’s go home!!!!!!!!!”

Bonus points: I liked Wally as a character and he gave a good outside view on the chaos that is the Winchesters’ life+++Lucifer manipulating Crowley – great ending scene+++”Urination. I understand. “ Cas knowing about human things…+++”When do you get off?”- “Whenever I can.” The one good line in that whole mess with Mandy. +++ THE MUSIC+++I LOVE YOU!

I'm most worried about Bokuto, Oikawa and Kuroo in the dub. Like, how do you find an actor who can replicate the perfect amount of joy and excitement into Bo's voice? Who can manage to balance sounding super sweet and adorbs along with Oikawa's pettiness and still make me love him? And who else has a voice that is just pure sex like Kuroo's? *bangs fist on table* These are the important questions we need to ask when considering a dub!

I know bean. The seyiuus did an incredible job bringing our favorite characters to life and I’m very emotionally attached to every single one of them…that’s why I guess I’ll probably cringe at the dub no matter how good it is. 

How could someone else scream with the same desperation “so call for the toos again, ace”, who could hold a candle to the original “HEY HEY HEY” or “HINATA BOKE!”? ARE THEY GONNA KEEP THE HONORIFICS???? 

You’re right dear, so many questions, so little answers we’re getting.

God I feel so bad for Troian can people stop giving her shade for the accent? I mean just because people were upset with the storyline that's no reason to take it out on Troian!! Or any of the actors. They all gave their 100%. I feel so bad for them, I can't even imagine how horrible it would be to read all those comments. I would definitely start crying if I were them. People have become so insensitive hiding behind a computer screen

Yes that’s why I don’t name the actors. I hated the reveal but that was Marlene’s call, not Troian’s! She did an amazing job by playing Alex, while watching the episode live I literally told my dad “Troian is way too good acting” and he agreed.

anonymous asked:

hi! can i pls request rfa + v and unknown finding out that mc has a child from a past relationship and the father of the child isn't around (ps i love u)

Yoosung:

  • He’s probably the most intimidated by the situation.
  • It’s not because he doesn’t want to help MC or doesn’t care enough for them to want to. He’s just unsure whether he’s ready in terms of actually being able to offer help.
  • It’s not like he has much experience when it comes to parenting kids or looking out for them. He’s practically a child himself, still.
  • But he wants to try! And maybe he’ll suggest they look around for a babysitter in case it does get too overwhelming.
  • Most of all, though, he’s truly impressed that MC has handled the situation so well up until now and still continues to be a badass parent. Good on them!!!

Jaehee:

  • She’s shook. Having a child must be hard work itself, but looking after it by yourself must be even harder!!!
  • Swooning over how tough MC is.
  • She remains realistic though. She does want to offer a helping hand, but it’s likely not possible, since Jaehee’s work schedule is pretty tight and doesn’t allow her much freedom to take care of a kid.
  • On the other hand, she’s not averse to the idea to bring the kid to work, actually.
  • She herself is a little overwhelmed with looking after a child, though. But she learns quickly and is determined to do a good job.

Zen:

  • He’s super surprised, but in a positive way. Similar to Jaehee, he acknowledges the effort it takes to take care of a child all alone.
  • All the more, he’s determined to help them out. He knows they could technically work it by themselves, but they don’t have to, it would be super unfair.
  • He’s actually very good with kids and bonds with MC’s child quickly. He did want a family of his own for a very long time, eager to do a better job than his parents did when he was young.
  • The only downside might be his image as an actor. It’s likely shocking news for any fan to suddenly see Zen as a guardian / father figure of a kid.
  • Still, he does want to support them and is positive there’s a way to rock both lifestyles.

Jumin:

  • Fear not, financial support is no big deal anymore. Jumin can offer and provide them with all the things necessary and will do so even without them having to ask.
  • When it comes to him looking out for the kid himself though, he’s pretty damn lost as to what to do.
  • At least he’s patient and doesn’t freak out. He keeps his cool no matter what.
  • Basically calls Jaehee every 5 minutes to ask her for advice. She’s starting to think that kid will become the next Elizabeth the 3rd she has to babysit.
  • He’s the type of person that kids love even though he doesn’t know what to do.

707:

  • Well, technically… congratulations, MC on having two kids to babysit, with being in a relationship with Seven.
  • Can you really trust this man to hold a baby? You know this meme where the father throws his kid up in the air to catch it again? And the mother is concerned, seeing the kid being thrown like 6 feet up? That’s Seven for you.
  • At least he’s living it. No matter how old the child is, he knows how to have some fun and finally gets to live his own childhood.
  • He’s hip with the kids. He knows which cartoons to show them and stuff… MC should probably check up on it though.
  • “Seven, you can’t teach a 6 year old how to hack into a computer.” – “Why not? Geniuses gotta learn early.”

V:

  • A super supportive angelic babe that drops everything whenever MC calls just to take care of the kid.
  • He’s so thoughtful about anything surrounding the child. “I’m going grocery shopping real quick. Do we still have enough diapers?”
  • He loves kids, he’s never really thought about it, but they’re so adorable to him. And kids generally love him too. They keep playing with his hair and/or glasses and he always lets them, it’s so funny to him.
  • Proudly wears a baby carrier and holds the baby by his chest like a pro.
  • If the kid happens to be a little older than just a toddler… prepare for the dad jokes. Really horrible dad jokes and amazingly stupid puns.

Saeran:

  • He’s quite overwhelmed with the situation, but something inside of him wants to learn about how to help MC.
  • Let’s be real, he has no idea how to take care of a kid and gets frustrated easily (not necessarily annoyed at the kid, but mostly just really frustrated with himself).
  • Funnily enough, he’s a boss when it comes to changing diapers and feeding a baby. He’s looked up some YouTube tutorials or whatever and immediately nailed it first try. He’s not even grossed out by it, he’s so casual about it.
  • Whenever MC would thank him, he’d just blush madly and say “Wh–why are you thanking me? It’s nothing. You’re doing much more and… you already did so much for me, I gotta return the favor somehow.”
  • Warms up to the kid so quickly. At some point the kiddo might call him dad and his heart might possibly jump out of his chest.

Miwa Shirow one year ago:
For the sake of convenience (even though they’re fake names), I personally use the voice actors’ first names, such as Kaminaga Ryouhei or Jitsui Jun, when there is a need to call the D-Agency members by their full name. #jga

Miwa Shirow now (quoting past tweet):
Although I once said this in the past, the stageplay itself did such a fine job of performing that I now think that calling them Sakuma Shouichiro or Miyoshi Shougo would be fine too. Everyone was so good…
“Shougo” means “to be victorious over oneself.”

anonymous asked:

Do u sense that Katie cassidy feels any sense of envy to her DC ladies. Candice Patton plays the female plan A endgame, what she was supposed to be. EBR usurped her in every way and Caity Lotz made it even harder for KC to be BC and now she headlines her own show where she gets rave reviews something KC didn't really get on arrow. On top of all that , her BC has been replaced by an actress who has been getting positive feedback in her less than 10 epis so far. KC is probably shades of green.

If I were her I’d be pissed at the writers for fucking up her character but, then again, I would’ve asked to be written off at the end of season 1.

Look, Colin Donnell has gone on record more than once about the fact that he had a seven year contract (three with Arrow and four with an eye on a spin off) and they had discussed with him the possibility of turning him into Doctor Mid-Nite.  When it became obvious that the chemistry wasn’t there with Amell and KC and the romantic triangle was hurting the show, they went to Colin and asked to break his contract. Amell was the star, KC was the first one hired with a rock solid contract, so he had to go. He could’ve fought it but, instead, he bowed out gracefully even though, according to him, it scared the shit out of him. He said when he got his seven year contract he was so happy because it meant he’d have steady work for seven years then, all of the sudden, he was unemployed and thinking he would never work again. A week later he was on Broadway.

Had I been KC and seen how they were writing my character, seen the bad reviews of my performance, I would’ve told those guys to keep Tommy and kill me off. It would’ve saved her character and opened her up other opportunities. She could’ve come back in flashbacks and still been a major part of the show only as a noble and beloved martyr. 

I honestly think that KC has ruined her career with Laurel. This character and the bad writing hatchet job they did on her will haunt her forever. A great actor once said that they never remember the awards, only the flops. Which stands out more in your mind; Cuba Gooding Jr’s Oscar winning role or all the stupid B movies he’s done since then? Do you remember Russell Crowe more for his acting chops or for the fact that he hit a guy with his phone? 

Like Marc Antony said in Julius Caesar Act 3 Scene 2, “ The evil that men do lives after them;The good is oft interrèd with their bones.So let it be with Caesar.”

Black Canary may very well be the smartest move she’s made since accepting that role when you think about it. KC isn’t a great actress and she has very limited range but she plays a good villain.  She likes being the mean girl and every actor will tell you that the villain is always the meatier role. Maybe Black Siren will actually fix her career, who knows?

i finished Castlevania on netflix and it was…wow it was amazing. the animation was a bit awkward in some areas but overall it was beautiful. (these 4 eps were obviously them testing the waters, but since we’re getting a season 2 we’ll probably improved animation) i REALLY loved the voice acting, it was very atmospheric. the actors did such an amazing job.

Adi Shankar and the team did a wonderful job and I’m so proud at how well this series came out. My hopes were in good hands. I can’t for the second season!

anonymous asked:

For the question thing; 4, 13 and 28?

4. If you were to make a Phantom movie, who would you cast (dead or alive)?

I’m quite frankly the worst to ask about fancasting or dreamcasting - I don’t have any specific way of seeing the character (nobody’s asked me #30, but if they did, I would say that I’ve seen so many different versions that it’s all blended together so that Erik and all the other characters look like vaguely humanoid, flesh-colored blobs with no faces), so I can’t cast based on looks, and I feel like most actors can do a competent job of portraying the characters, given a good script and direction. So you know… *shrug*. Anyone good.

13. How often do you bring up PotO in real life among friends and strangers? 

Very rarely. I tend to keep my obsessions tamped down and private, so I only talk about them if asked, or if I hear or see something related to it. (My dad is the best outlet for it, because he’ll sometimes listen to musicals. Most recently, he listened to a recording of the title song saying he didn’t know who the cast was, only for me to launch myself at his computer and yell, “That’s Emmy Rossum! I recognize her… vocal qualities.”)

I also think that while a lot of people know of POTO, most are not really obsessed fans. My current job also has me working with preteens and teenagers, so when I can bring up something I’m obsessed with as a way of relating to them, it’s usually something more popular, like… the MCU, or Star Wars, or whatever.

28. Do you let non-phans know how big your obsession really is?

Ha, well, this kind of relates to the above, and the answer is really the same: no, not really, because I tend to keep the stuff I like quiet and to myself.

Yeah Lili and Cole were both amazing actors during that kitchen scene. I bet they were repulsed by every second of it really. They certainly make it sound like it was hell during interviews, like they hated every second. Plus they have no sexual chemistry so it must have been so tough for them.
Never said they hated it, I’m sure they fucking loved it, especially Cole, cause he’s finally able to do an adult scene, that’s a BIG deal for him. You idiots are literally just admitting you don’t think Lili or Cole can act, if you think that was SH, then, they are really bad actors cause they can’t separate real life from characters. There is not a single actor in the SH fandom, I don’t think there is a single person who has worked in entertainment. I mean, there really can’t be.

Ummmm……

Except SHE’S the one who just said Cole can’t act/did a bad job/had no chemistry…and that Lili was a good actress, solely based on that scene and you know,

What we’ve actually always said is “Cole and Lili are both amazing actors but they sometimes blur the lines when playing romantic scenes, because they’re also a real life couple”. Not even remotely the same thing….

But you know, I’m not an “industry insider” (who is routinely appallingly ignorant on bare basics), so what do I know?

Also…..

                                                                           Anonymous: Which scenes do you mean where Cole forgets to act when he looks at KJ?                                                                                                                                                                                                        

Locker room, football field, kitchen, bedroom, those are the MAJOR ones. But anytime he looks at KJ, unless Jughead is supposed to be in love with Archie, which, as much as I’d like that to be the case, sadly isn’t.

Guess someone’s been fapping to her headcanons over time again, huh?? Nice job insulting Cole…the best actor on the show, you stupid bitch

ETA…I just realized who her circular, self contradictory, finger pointing, self victimizing (while attacking), feeling rules don’t apply to her arguments bring to mind…
