the reason why i watch this show

anonymous asked:

can you name 5 things you dont want to see in s2? shippings aside

most of the things that i don’t want to happen regarding ships are for deeper reasons than just it opposes my ship, so it’s kind of hard for me to exclude shipping from my list. most of my fears for season 2 have to do with romance, so i can’t keep shipping off my list entirely– but i’ll explain into further detail why it’s on my “please, god, don’t” list for season 2 (or any future season). 

  1. B*RCHIE & the BAV love triangle. i will stop watching the show if ether of these things happen. my love for bughead plays into that, but it’s also much much deeper. having romantic b*rchie happen, or resurrecting the triangle from the first two episodes, destroys the bond between the core four. i’ve watched so many shows where i couldn’t invest in the friendships because they were all dating and fucking each other. you cannot convince me that somebody would be okay with their best friend dating somebody that they used to be deeply in love with. for me, it doesn’t matter how long you’ve been broken up, it’s just something that you don’t do. and you definitely cannot convince me that two people can still be best friends with no animosity after fighting over the same romantic interest, especially if one of them is/was in a relationship with the person they both have feelings for (ex: peyton and brooke from oth). i’m not interested in seeing the beautiful friendship between veronica and betty be decimated for a love triangle that has already been done a hundred different ways. it had a long life (too long). let. it. die. and i don’t want to see the bond between the core four be strained for a coupling that a) very few people want and b) robs betty of all of the character development she’s experienced since we first met her. she has come so far from her comic counter part who let people walk all over her and pined after archie despite the fact she was clearly second best to him. and how am i possibly supposed to believe that archie is riverdale’s “hero” if he assured veronica that he only views betty as a friend, and then proceeded to sleep with her, only to turn around and be like psych. one of the things that has kept me from disliking archie is the fact that, despite all of his screw ups, he was still a good person. having archie develop feelings for betty after his and veronica’s conversation in ep 13 would turn him into a smarmy fuckboy. i’m not going to watch a show where out of our four main characters: one receded on all the growth she’s experienced to be with a boy that has only treated her like shit (romantically) in the past, and another can’t figure out what he wants, so he dips his hand into every honey pot in riverdale; not realizing how it hurts them and their friendships with each other 
  2. keep paranormal shit away from riverdale. if you want to have your show be paranormal, you have to introduce that right away. you can’t start your show as human monsters and then suddenly shift to actual monsters. it just doesn’t work. a prime example being pretty little liars– out of nowhere they started introducing ghosts and psychics and it left the audience like ???? that’s one of the reasons their pll spin-off, ravenswood, flopped so hard. they were counting on the pll audience to also watch the spin-off show, but a lot of people liked pretty little liars as a show about human monsters. they didn’t want to watch a show that took place in the same universe, but with ghosts and demons and prophecies. if they want to keep doing little dream sequences with zombies and having the kids talk about legends involving witches in the woods as a nod to roberto's afterlife with archie comic, that’s fine, but don’t make it real 
  3. no more incest. it’s upsetting that i even have to type this. please, stop. no more twincest vibes with cheryl and jason, and no more cousins sleeping together and having children. i don’t even want step-sibling type incest, which means no fred/hermione or fp/alice 
  4. i don’t want a bughead break up. this one does have a bit of bias, but it’s more than just my love for them. it’s why i love them. betty and jughead have one of the most refreshing, honest, believable, loving, supportive, healthy relationships i have ever seen on television. i know that some people, for some reason, believe that for a couple to be interesting they have to break up and get back together throughout the show, and i firmly disagree with that. in fact, i find on again-off again relationships to be obnoxious. they’re either breaking up over something stupid that they should be able to work through with conversion and time, or something terrible that makes them getting back together later hard to believe. the more they do that, the less refreshing, honest, believable, loving, supportive, and healthy that pairing becomes. i don’t want that for bughead. i’ve said it before, but i’d like to see them have a relationship like nathan and haley from oth. they got together in the first season and stayed together the entire show (9 seasons). their relationship was not boring. the writers put them through hell, and they stumbled a few times, but they fought through it and always came out stronger. that was amazing to watch because it made their love feel so real and was such a rarity on tv. it still is. the way they wrote season 1, they have a prime set up to make betty and jughead their anchor couple. i want that. i want that so much more than the tired break up, date other people, get back together formula most television writers fall back on. and nobody give me the “it’s not realistic” speech. this is a show where they hid heroin in maple syrup barrels. it also might be rare for teens to get together and stay together, but it is most definitely not impossible or unrealistic. i’m sure that quite a few of my followers have parents that started dating in high school and are still married 
  5. i also don’t want betty to become a south side serpent. i know a lot of people like the idea of her going dark and becoming the “serpent queen,” but i think it kind of romanticizes her mental illness. she’s not dark betty or light betty, she’s both. having her go full dark is just as unhealthy as what she’s doing now. she needs to learn that it’s okay to be both. she needs to find balance, and (i don’t think) joining the serpents is going to help with that. i want her to spend time in the south side, and make friends there, because i think being around people who are unapologetically themselves will help her learn to accept all parts of herself, but i don’t want her to become a serpent. it also tethers betty and jughead too tightly together. they need to be their own independent people within their relationship 
Marlene King is literally the worst writer in television history.

We have literally wasted 7 years of hints and clues towards so many characters. To get a character who didn’t make an appearance until the very end. I’m so bitter. Hot For Teacher was the best reveal ever. I really wish they made Ezra or even Wren the twin. It would have been 10x better. This twincer BS is dumb. What was the reason to go after ALL the girls? Why did poor Hanna get tortured? What the hell did she do to the dumb british bitch…. ugh im so mad. I will never watch a Marlene King show ever again.

anonymous asked:

please enlighten me on why you enjoy servamp so much (genuinely curious) - i tried watching it a while back but it just didn't get me hooked. what am i missing??

030 hoo boi. Okay, as much as I wanna go into a hyper deep analysis like I normally do and list 800 reasons why. I just gotta say anon. It might just be a personal opinion for you and I can’t shove opinions down your throat. ^^;

But how I came to like it WAY MORE was reading the manga afterwards. Cause oh boy I was NOT really fond of the anime’s ending. AT ALL. I watched the anime first and then was just EXTREMELY CONFUSED and was honestly ready to dub this as a “bad series my dude.” But then I kept hearing so much talk about the manga. 

Anon. Amigo. Buddy. Pal.

THE ANIME SKIPS SO MUCH.

  • They legit removed characters. Like they suddenly don’t even exist anymore. 
  • SKIPPED AN ENTIRE ARC FOR LUST PAIR. (and tbh one of the best ones, they basically skipped Lust Pair so we could get to Greed Pair quicker instead. -w-)
  • left out some important dialogue (imo)
  • introduced some characters WAYYYY earlier than they were supposed to be shown.  
  • they also left out some funny/kinda cute moments
  • some scenes are shortened.
  • lots of character development that we don’t get to see in the anime, or characters like Snow Lily, Mikuni, etc. have a less major role in the anime. WHICH SUCKS cause they are so much more than the anime gives them.
  • and so on…..


the whole anime ending is completely made up. Like it’s similar up to a point and THEN BOOM nothing makes sense anymore. There is quite a bit of anime only moments too. So yeah. It doesn’t match up in many ways…. it’s cool we have a anime, but gosh they butchered this series. So maybe give the manga a chance anon???? I see a lot of people say the ending sucked or “didn’t make sense” and they are anime only people.

 and EVERYONE ends up saying “just read the manga” just like I’m saying right now. That’s usually the case with anime vs. manga.

Thank you for your question. Hope you check it out! ^^ or not. It’s up to you!! Have a good day!  ❤❤❤

I never watched Steven Universe and all the fandom is hyped. Obviously I haven't watched spoilers because a friend told is worthy even with the filler episodes. So tell me is worthy to watch?

if you get into its “story”/plot,it is. From my point of view, it’s a great show,it’s original,most of the characters are likeable and they keep getting a good development. This show changed many things from my life(all good) and it’ll be one of the only modern shows that will probably stay in my heart forever,as the old shows did. This show is one of the main reasons why I’m here.

Of course,this is just from my point of view,everything depends of you ,if you’ll like it or not,but as I said,is worth watching. Good luck and enjoy watching it !

This could be my tiredness coming out but like I’m so tempted to try and get naegiri fans to use kirinae because like the people who don’t like naegiri apparently never heard of a forward slash and refuse to use it so the hate shows up in the search and I get salty because when I go in the search I don’t want to see these ridiculous reasons for why the ship doesn’t work because um have you even played dr1 or watched dr3?

Even if you say you tag it as anti naegiri think about the people on mobile who can’t blacklist

So I’m using kirinae

Five reasons to watch Netflix's new Anne of Green Gables adaption, Anne With An "E"...

So I didn’t think I would need to make a post like this but negative reviews that don’t do the show justice (particularly that horrible vanity fair article) have apparently left me no choice….
Overall, Netflix’s Anne With An “E” or simply Anne The Series as it was called when it originally aired on the CBC in Canada, is wonderful. 

here are five reasons why you should watch Anne With An “E” on Netflix:

1. Anne herself, Amybeth McNulty. 

Originally posted by greengableslover

Amybeth completely captures Anne’s spirit. I swear it’s like someone shook the book and Amybeth fell out of it. She plays Anne with all the dreaminess, quirkiness, and charm that we know and love, as well as adding more depth to her than we’ve seen in previous adaptions. This brings me to my next point…

2. Anne is portrayed as an abuse and trauma survivor, as she should be! 

Sure, we all love the lighthearted humor of Anne’s many misadventures in the original stories, and that’s still there in Anne With An “E”, but Anne was also the victim of a lot of mental and physical neglect and abuse in her past life before being adopted by the Cuthberts. In the show, she suffers from symptoms of PTSD and the effects of her past trauma are evident. The result of adding more details of Anne’s past do make the show darker at times, but the dark times only make the light times shine brighter, and we know there are more light times to come in Anne’s story!

3. Besides Amybeth, the rest of the cast is superb as well! 

All around, the casting is spot on and the acting is spectacular! I don’t even know what else to say here, but everyone is just so wonderful!!!

And don’t think I’d forget… you can count on me to give a special shout-out to everyone’s favorite slate smack recipient, Gilbert Blythe.  

Originally posted by violentfille

Lucas Jade Zumann is PERFECT as Gilbert. He brings a slyness and playfulness to Gilbert that was there in the books but glossed over in other adaptions. And by the way, his chemistry with Amybeth McNulty is everything you could ever ask for and more…

(side note: I would also like to throw out a special mention to Aunt Josephine Barry, no spoilers but she’s more lovable than she’s ever been)

4. The show tackles timeless and contemporary themes of identity, feminism, bullying, and prejudice.

Anne’s life, realistically, doesn't become all sunshine and rainbows as soon as she comes to Avonlea. She struggles to fit in and faces bullying at school. The show also addresses issues of sexism and classism and does a great job at it while accurately (for the most part) staying within the time period it is portraying. 

5. Everything about the show is high quality.    

From the aforementioned acting to the cinematography, music, costume design, sets, editing, and the GORGEOUS opening title sequence, everything is the highest quality and you can tell how much thought, time, effort, and passion went into the making of this show. 


Please give it a chance and check it out on Netflix, given the opportunity the show could grow and get even better if it is renewed for future seasons!

I just… really love this movie

Thirteen Reasons Why - Explained

Thirteen Reasons Why

I’ve seen a lot of posts about Hannah being a ‘drama queen’ or overreacting to small things everyone did so I thought I’d explain a bit about what I understood.

1. Justin - Justin exaggerated what he and Hannah did. While this seems mild, it set Hannah up for a terrible high school career because she earned the reputation of 'slut’. This happens so often in schools and in the adult world and can RUIN someone’s life in a certain, if not all areas.

2. Alex - Alex put Hannah as having the best ass against Jessica as the worst. It is clear that the internet is doing its thing again and not taking time to understand things properly; this was NOT A COMPLIMENT AND HANNAH HAD EVERY RIGHT TO BE ANGRY. It was a clear violation of friendship and an obvious example of men pitting women against each other for their own benefit.

3. Jessica - I’m going more by the book here, but Jessica was on the tapes because she didn’t believe Hannah and abandoned her when she needed her. A clear example of how people can easily be lead by others and girls turning on each other because of guys. Jessica deserved to be on the tapes because she didn’t hear Hannah’s side of the story and instead took her anger out on her first friend at the school.

4. Tyler - I don’t think I need to explain much about this, but he abused his position as a photographer in school to violate boundaries for his own pleasure similar to how a lot of people in a power exploit those below them. He made Hannah feel vulnerable and took the lack of comfort she felt at school to her own bedroom.

5. Courtney - I suppose this is kind of harder to understand. Courtney was a closeted lesbian and therefore it is understandable that she was upset at the thought of her being outed before she was ready, but Hannah confided in her to help her expose someone else and instead she protected herself by further ruining Hannah. This shows the selfishness of those who feel the need to protect themselves by harming others.

6. Marcus - I haven’t seen much on Marcus honestly, but I dislike him immensely. He took advantage of Hannah because of the impression of her he had put together from rumours created by other reasons (Justin, Courtney) which is an expression of how men feel owed something from women, especially those who are seen as 'slutty’.

7. Zach - At first glance, Zach doesn’t seem too bad. At half a second glimpse, this changes. Hannah rejected him because he said something silly, a mistake, and if he had made an obvious effort to explain and apologise, he could have helped Hannah. Instead, he chooses to punish her by preventing her from receiving happiness from others. This is one of the clearest examples of how men can’t handle a woman’s right to say 'no’ and reject him…

8. Ryan - This tape is similar to that of Tyler in that he made her feel unsafe. What Tyler did was worse than Ryan, however the effect of Ryan’s actions had (in my opinion) worse consequences that Tyler’s. Ryan published her poem because he thought it was something that needed to be shared, a selfish and naive action (when considering the maturity of high school students), which meant that Hannah’s personal thoughts were no longer her own. She was not comfortable at school, home or in her own mind.

9. Clay - Though I agree when Hannah states that he shouldn’t have been on the tapes, Clay does represent 'everyone else’ who stands by and watched people like Hannah slowly fade and retreat into themselves because of the actions of others. The 'bystanders’ if you will, whose lack of part in our stories can be just as important as those who intrude on us.

10. Justin - It is evident in the series that Justin was extremely haunted by the rape at Jessica’s party and this is probably why he is gaining so much sympathy… this is also why I recommend you all READ THE BOOK. Justin stood by and watched his friend rape his girlfriend, why is he receiving more sympathy than I’ve seen for Jessica? Of course it was hard for Justin to witness that, but staying friends with Bryce and staying with Jessica without telling her is reason enough for him to be on the tapes again.

11. Jenny - Jenny was kind to Hannah, offering her a lift home, but she didn’t take responsibility for knocking down the stop sign which lead to someone’s DEATH. The guilt that Hannah was left with from this (because she was in the car) was understandably overwhelming, especially as the victim was a classmate who was blamed for drunk driving. Jenny is an example of how our reckless actions and lack of responsibility for them can destroy other lives; is that not the entire plot?

12. Bryce - Lord help you if you need an explaination.

13. Mr Porter - A perfect example of how there is not enough support out there for students (and people in general, honestly). The counsellor advising Hannah to 'move on’ after she confides in him that she was raped is one of the most haunting moments in the entire series, solidifying her reason for suicide- she had no comfort amongst her classmates, in her own home, in her mind and now, the specialist designated for dealing with situations like this bore no real interest in her problems and told her to 'move on’.

It’s extremely important for us when watching shows with topics like this to remember many things.

First, the show is not just this situation. Everything represents something more in society; each tape side is a problem in the world that leads to suicide, not only a small action by one character leading to Hannah Baker’s suicide. If you need help in understanding this, or want something else similar to this story, I recommend watching or reading 'An Inspector Calls’ by J.B. Priestly- a masterful piece tackling classism/sexism and how each person’s seemingly small actions lead to a girl’s suicide.

Second, memes are sometimes funny. The 'Clay every time he sees Tony’ memes are really funny, the 'fuck off, Courtney’ memes are funny, but the 'welcome to your tape over a slight inconvenience’ memes, they’re not. The show is raising awareness for the seriousness of suicide, not to create a fanbase of jokes about it. Promoting these after you watch the show, is a clear statement that you haven’t understood why it was made and is completely unacceptable.

Third, separate the character from the actor. Justin Prentice is NOT Bryce Walker, do not spam his comments with disgusting name calling or threatening- this is CLEARLY wrong and unnecessary. This also works the other way: Brandon Flynn is NOT Justin Foley. Just because Brandon is attractive and nice, doesn’t mean his character becomes as such.

Please don’t turn 13 reasons why into another generic element of pop culture. I love pop culture, don’t get me wrong, but we have a tendency to begin digging for meaning and giving up halfway; overusing the profound starting points of progress we find by loosely throwing them around, emptying them of all meaning.
