HBO Warmas → Day 18/25: Disney AU

Eugene Roe as Tiana

“Mama, I don’t have time for dancin’, that’s just gonna have to wait a while.”


Listen up. Got some bad news. There is a patrol set for tonight – so far, Speirs wants McClung–

Okay but what about apartment au where, of all people, roe and guarnere are roommates like can you imagine what that would be like cuz I can

- bill is the cook because gene is so perpetually exhausted half the time he goes to start the coffee machine and he’ll forget to put water in
- bill didn’t tell gene he could cook though until he came home one day and found gene trying to cook spaghetti and it broke bills Italian heart
- doc starts out bandaging bill after his stupid shenanigans, but after the third (bill says it’s the third time really it’s the eighth time) gene makes a jar that bill has to fill with money and trinkets (scissors anyone?) that’s labeled “stupidity fund”
- everyone assumes that between the two of them bill is crankier in the morning, but luz comes swaggering in unannounced (unwelcome) and gets a med textbook to the face
- bill feels bad for making gene come home from exhausting classes and grueling shifts to loud parties and babe eating all their cereal so he makes sure to cook something Cajun once a month
- their first argument as roommates was a total disaster because neither could understand the other because their accents got thicker and thicker the angrier they got

deus vult [an instrumental fanmix for The Sparrow]

The Jesuit scientists went to learn, not to proselytize. They went so that they might come to know and love God’s other children. They went for the reason Jesuits have always gone to the farthest frontiers of human exploration. They went ad majorem Dei gloriam; for the greater glory of God. 

They meant no harm.

Loosier AU idea (yes, I am team Loosier)

AU where Leckie is a famous author/poet and Hoosier is a reporter

Hoosier is supposed to be interviewing Leckie about his recent book but he won’t stop fucking flirting with him

It would be slightly less awkward for everyone else in the studio if Leckie wasn’t flirting back

Luckily Chuckler is a really good editor so the studio has something to submit to the Tv network

But someone on the camera crew got ahold of the cut clips where they’re flirting with each other and posts it on YouTube (probably Snaf tbh)

It goes viral and rumors start to fly that Leckie and Hoosier are dating

Runner, Leckie’s agent, is freaking out that he’s involved in a scandal but Leckie just thinks it’s hilarious

He starts inviting Hoosier to dinner parties and get-togethers just to fuel the rumors because he’s a major troll

And Hoosier plays along because they’re both cynical little shits

One night at a party Hoosier gets drunk and kisses Leckie and someone gets a photo of it

The media goes nuts

Leckie and Hoosier think it’s the funniest thing to ever happen to them

They start dating a month later

I think a lot of the complaints about Tanis/other podcasts that don't feel like they have any consequences for the characters is part of a problem with the serialized nature of the medium. If you look at other serial mediums you will see the same problems, like network tv or comics. Greater Boston feels like an equivalent Netflix or HBO series, where they aren't just being innovative with their story but also how they use their medium, while Tanis feels more like the equivalent of Lost/Fringe.

This is one of the main reasons I enjoy shows like Greater Boston so much and I have such a deep love for just about everything it does so well. If things like Ars Paradoxica is one of the trendsetters for time travel shows and The Bright Sessions has its excellent take on human conflict and mental illness, than Greater Boston better well be one for…say, slice of life/light comedy/drama/soft surrealism types. *

I think the problem with certain types of podcasts is that there’s little use of action and consequence, beginning-middle-end, or even any sense of conclusion to a series of problems. Even shows like TANIS that build themselves on an underlying since of drama, they still don’t wrap it up in a way that’s meant to feel like an ending that has everything make sense, or at least pull it together in such a way that something can feel finished. 

At that point, it won’t be much a conclusion as it is the series just stopping. No writer should have to submit to the idea that their story just needs to stop going, it should have a conclusion, wrap up, etc.

As I said, wrote an article about structure and closure, though it is an issue I hope won’t be so recurring with newer shows that come out, as they appear to be at a very rapid pace. 

That’s why I’ll use shows like Greater Boston as ways to present things that are genuine to the podcast style, but still have an idea of storytelling and setting up arcs.

*Back in 2014 was when a lot of shows came out but I think it’s only now we’ve gotten into this sort of podcast renaissance era and these specific titles are certainly at the top of their field.

My kink is that scene in John Adams hbo where Abigail is reading all the awful things Jefferson wrote about her husband and she's just getting more and more pissed off and John's just like "Abby, it's not a big deal" and Abigail is like "I am going to murder Mr Jefferson with my bare hands". Abigail Adams is the founder of the John Adams Protection Squad. (I don't mean to be That Girl™️, but angry Abigail Adams can murder my ass any day of the week gotdamn)

Listen I tell my g i r l f r i e n d I want Abigail Adams to rail my ass on the regular I hold no judgement


But beauty is a lure. We’re trapped, Teddy. Lived our whole lives inside this garden, marveling at its beauty, not realizing there’s an order to it, a purpose. And the purpose is to keep us in. The beautiful trap is inside of us… because it is us.

Hi, Emily! Do you think the cannibal cop really intended to kidnap and cannibalize the women he searched for? I watched an HBO special where his lawyer explained that he did it because he was simply bored while doing his job; in other words, he didn't actually think to go through with the crimes he talked about. I completely disagree, but I'd like to hear your opinion!

I don’t really know all that much about the case to be honest. I’ll need to check that documentary out!
