Ahhaa hello! Thank you all so much for your kind messages and questions. I will be updating my FAQ soon! I will try my best to reply to everyone but if I dont get to you, know that you and your inquiry are appreciated!!
remember back when you were a kid and answering the phone was such a big deal? like, the house phone would ring and everyone in the house would yell “I’LL GET IT” and suddenly everyone was standing around the phone in the kitchen while one of you played with the stretchy cord? And everyone would stand around and mouth “who is it?” and then you’d pace around in little circles because you were physically attached to the wall? Good times
season 3 was such triumphant television, it exemplified everything i adored about the magicians as a show. all the characters had to work together towards the same goal and everything that happened narratively, good or bad, felt earned. nothing in season 4 feels earned. even compared to season 2 (which is nowhere near as positive as season 3) season 4 falls flat. tragedy can work if done the right way. tragedy done right can leave a lasting impact and improve a show in many ways. this wasn’t done right. everything about this feels badly paced and sloppy, like tragedy for the sake of shock value and nothing else. that kind of writing makes my skin crawl. i hate how often writers think that anything grimdark and tragic is a better narrative choice than something triumphant and happy done the right way. it doesn’t make any sense, especially not in a show as unapologetically hopeful as the magicians. this show has always had an underlying theme of moving forward. because magic comes from pain, but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth using. because life comes with pain but that doesn’t mean it’s not worth living. and now none of that matters or holds any weight. quentin represented that motivation to keep going and now that he’s dead those themes mean nothing. where do they even go from here? how do they keep the show going, with the same underlying message of hope that people have grown to associate with the magicians, when they’ve just spat in the face of everyone who dared enjoy those aspects? they can’t. even if they try it won’t make any sense after this and that’s what i hate the most about season 4.
I’m sorry for the inactivity on all my social medias recently. I’ve been taking a bit of a break for myself after finally finishing my grad film a few weeks ago (yay!) and graduating just last week (double yay!).
The truth is that my last year of uni, particularly the last few months, exhausted me physically, mentally and emotionally. I pushed myself to an unhealthy amount and just completely burnt out. I’m so proud of the work I did and how the film turned out, but I just need some time to shut down and come back to things at my own pace when I am ready.
The good thing is that the film turned out AMAZINGLY! I won’t be able to post the film publicly for a while, its currently in its rounds of potentially being sent to film festivals. Thank you to everyone who sent me support while we were working on it. I can’t wait for everyone to see it!
This is very important y'know and sorry for leaving without telling. I just can’t stand the toxic’s behavior sometime. And sort of childish explain like they are just children so they do nothinv wrong or need more experience so they kept doing it.
Disney making a bunch of TV shows in phase 4 instead of movies is just a cash grab to push their streaming service. With the shows being directly tied in now and needing to watch all of them to grasp the timeline of events. Marvel productions as a whole are just going to become even more muddled and hard to follow for most people.
If you choose to watch the shows just torrents or illegally stream that shit honestly. You’re not hurting Disney and they’ll push on with marvel as a franchise even if this streaming venture fails. The MCU makes too much money for them to abandon.
Penny’s greatest sin is being a dick. Like, aside from his attitude, Penny is one of the most consistently “good” characters on the show. But for some reason he gets punished the most narratively for small things like being rude while others get off for doing way worse??? Despite getting nothing in return he helps the group anytime he’s asked, and even when he dies no one reacts! He got himself poisoned just to help Kady! And lost his chance to leave the library by helping someone he didn’t even know that well! He said timeline 40 “isn’t his timeline anymore” which is a pretty definitive way of saying our Penny is gone. He deserved so much better. :(
how are y'all? i hope you’re feeling niceeeee!! so… my bf made a youtube’s channel for color coded and he’s so happy and proud that he made a cc for txt’s teaser of crown! we would be so thankful and happy if you give a view in the video, please! is so important to us! anyway, take care of yourself and have a magical day… thank you, ilyyyy 💗
i’m gonna say it. it rly pisses me off how rude some people are to awsten in his replies like. its so unnecessary. i know its all a joke and funny and stuff but it just comes off as a bit tone deaf and idk a bit much. im just kinda glad i don’t rly engage w that side of twitter like at all but whenever i see it a bit of me cringes and dies.
May I suggest that you all read? And often. Believe me, it’s nice to have something to talk about other than the weather and the Queen’s health. Your mind is not a cage. It’s a garden. And it requires cultivating.
the line “help me hold on to you” is so tender and beautiful, especially in contrast with “I will hold on to you” in new year’s day because this time she’s being so vulnerable and self aware in admitting that her self-doubt and anxieties and past issues mean it’s hard for her to hold on to a relationship, but at the same time there’s the implication that she asks this because she knows he is the one person who will help her hold on and who could stay when other people wouldn’t so basically I’m emotional
Colton sat in his home office, going through papers to grade for his classes, and trying not to roll his eyes at the level of work some of his students found acceptable. “Honestly,” he muttered to himself, crossing out another wrong answer before he set the paper down and rubbed his eyes. If this was how stupid his class wanted to present themselves, then he didn’t even see the point in grading the rest of the papers tonight. With a huff he picked up his phone, sending a quick text to Ace, knowing he was home. Sven was working at his store he was sure.
Text Ace: Please bring Master a cup of tea with a shot of whiskey.
Sure the whiskey wouldn’t do anything in terms of getting him drunk, but it would make him feel better to know he was drinking like these idiot students apparently were when they should have been studying for their tests.
Why does everyone keep saying Leafpool’s death is “badly written” because she doesn’t have a death scene yet? Come on guys, she’s obviously gonna get a proper sendoff in Squirrelflight’s Hope. The Erins wouldn’t be stupid and lazy enough to give Leafpool— Firestar’s daughter, the one who discovered the Moonpool, and the mother of two prophecy cats— the Spiderleg treatment. Cats have been killed in Super Editions before (Willowpelt, Dustpelt, Blackstar, etc.), so chill before you make any assumptions.
I only wish that SH had been written and released BEFORE Lost Stars so her death will actually be unexpected. That was the only mistake made in this situation.
(Also everyone saying “DING DONG THE WITCH IS DEAD” in response to this because they didn’t like Leafpool needs to shut up and let everyone grieve, just saying)
Sometimes I get sad and think that the things I say mean nothing, but then I think about that John Mulaney skit where he says that “The things crazy people say mean NOTHING to them, and EVERYTHING to me” and then I feel better
I’ve been seeing a lot of arguments on my dash today over whether headcanoning an autistic character as asexual and/or aromatic is right or wrong. As an autistic person, I believe I deserve to put in my own two cents.
I think it depends on WHY the person headcanons this character the way they do. Do they relate to the character and want to project their own sexuality onto them? That’s fine, leave the person alone. Do they believe the character wouldn’t be interested in romance or sex for reasons unrelated to their autism? Okay, whatever.
Does the person see the character as a “precious, innocent baby” because of their autism and believe they wouldn’t understand romance or sex, let alone engage in it? Then we have a problem.
I don’t say it often but to those who originally follow me just for particular fandom but ended up sticking with me, supporting me and my works in general till today, you’re all SUPER awesome!! You know who you are <3
p.s. be sure to keep your eyes peeled for next week
