you know all the anger I’m seeing from fandom, from media outlets, from pretty much everyon tells me just how much Sleepy Hollow, Abbie Mills, the Mills Militia, Frank Irving, and Ichabbie are loved. this righteous anger is making me hopeful ya’ll.
right now I’ve been hearing some rumblings that we should watch and promote the hell out of Mama! I think this is a great plan and should be our plan for the rest of season. Any episode that promotes the dynamics and values we tuned in for should be praised to the heavans and everything else should be ignored.
What are our values:
race and cultural diversity
equal gender representation
Abbie written with honor and respect
the Mills sisters and their storyline being showcased equally to the Cranes
What does this look like?
Jenny being important to the plot and conclusion of each episode
Frank being important to the plot and conclusion of each episode
Abbie and Jenny sharing the screen and working together to solve the apocalypse (Ichabod can be there too)
TeamWitness working together
not against Katrina being present, but no more displacing the main four, no more removal of her agency, no more prop, toy or object to a man’s subject. if the writing for one woman is sexist the writing for all the woman will be sexist
diversity is more than black and white, new characters should be Native, LatinX, SEA, EA, from any of the many African countries
What we don’t want to see?
Hawley and Katrina sucking up screentime
Hawley getting in between Abbie and Jenny
Katrina being counted in the decison making process as if she were a Witness
Abbie being too stupid to call Jenny as her back-up against Crane stupidity.
Native Americans being stuck into the story for no real reason
Sleepy Hollow promised many things in this first season and they’ve stopped delivering. Let’s help them get back on track!
