To all the writers of the show…
Forever disgusted that they used burning angel wings as the title card, leading the audience on to think this would totally be the season of angels, and then they completely dropped the ball on both the angel and Cas arcs, wasting a whole episode on bestiality jokes while most of the interesting angel shit goes happens offscreen.
They just fucking walked away from the angel story, Cas was human for like five minutes, nothing but bad things happen to him, he learns nothing nice about being human, completely separated from the Winchesters, can’t even get his own grace back (and the showrunner doesn’t even think that’s an issue, any old grace will do).
Forever disgusted that they used Misha’s status as regular to keep us all excitedly watching. It turns out Cas is in as many or LESS episodes than when he was a guest star.
And how did we find out?
A writing student said one of the writers, Buckner (the lovely one who gave us 9x03 and 9x09), said in front of a whole classroom Misha was signed for 11 episodes. Great PR, SPN. Great PR.
Why am I not surprised. It seems to me that quite a few of the writers and producers would like to see Cas go, and they can’t because they’d lose so many viewers on that. Someone made a chart/sheet/anything to see if there are writers/producers who consistently leave Cas out? (Glass?)
If I were Misha, I’d have walked out half a season ago instead of going to waste in a show that doesn’t seem to want him or his character in there.
You know, it’s the last paragraph that hurt the most. If only they had more respect for Misha and his fans…
Please, when did anyone have respect for Misha?
Ever since he came there, people and crew have wanted to cast him out. If he didn’t have such a strong fanbase, and those things we did last year to keep him, nothing would have happened. And you know Singer has been sweating on his neck all that damn time.
I love Jensen and Jared with everything I have, and some of the writers, God bless their heart, but sometimes, I wish they’d just try more on the situation with Mish.
But you know what is the thing that fucking bugs me to no end? It is the fact that all this bullshit happened when Edlund left. He was a strong voice on the final decisions (as a partial director, writer and consulting producer), that he was able to back up the importance of Castiel against the assholes who wished him dead. he did so for 4 seasons.
Everything, and I mean everything, from Jenny Klein’s episode to the god-awful 9x03, was a product of Edlund’s departure.
Because the show, without him, is falling apart.
Maybe people can stop complaining? He wasn’t even supposed to be this far in the first place. It’s really annoying to writers and such when they have a great story line and a character is done but the fans won’t stop pitching bitch fits about it so they have to keep a character on because God forbid they don’t some fans will just cry and bitch and moan until they get what they want. There’s so much shit going on right now in the aftermath of season 8 and they’re doing what they’ve always done actually, a few filler episodes here and there and then some real shit and more fillers. The title card is not misleading. You’re all just stupid and whiny. The season finale will have something big to do with the title card, if you haven’t noticed before.
This show and their writers give the fans just about everything they want, and when they try and take more direction with it, boom, a group of babies start crying and getting angry about it.
At this point I want Castiel’s death the same way I want Daryl’s in the walking dead, because the fans ruin the characters and baby him and cry about anything and everything when they were never really apart of the original/main storyline. And if you can’t handle that, then stop watching it. It’s as simple as that.
What a compelling argument you have made, how logical and rational. Yes, you are right, those poor poor writers, having to deal with fans who really like a character on their show (a character they parade around like an albino king cheetah in a diamond-studded collar whenever they want to hype up the fanbase), who had to gall to watch their show and keep them employed. I mean, how dare we, where do we get off?
And you’re right, they did have so much going on in the aftermath of season 8, you know, with the angels falling and Cas being human. Obviously with all the angels falling/Cas human stuff they had to deal with, they just didn’t have the time to dealing with all the angels falling/Cas human stuff. I mean, they had those pivotal plots about The Wizard of Oz and Gay Yorkies making bestiality jokes and Virgins and Fish Tacos and the 800th heavy-handed Dean/Sam parallel to make. I mean, all that shit was pivotal to what happened in season 8, with the angels falling and Naomi and the tablets and Metatron and Cas losing his Grace and Cas’s missing memories and all that other Season 8 stuff, you are exactly right. How could I not see that?
And you’re right, the show DOES give us just about everything we want. We’ve all been asking for more endless brother angst, and for Cas to be separated from the Winchesters, and for them to get rid of all their side-characters, and for them to retcon John into an adequate father so they can just pretend like Dean is psychologically damaged from his childhood, and for more misogyny and heteronormalization in every single episode (but only heteronormalize Dean and Cas, people like Sam or Kevin don’t need to ever express interest in the female sex). We’ve all been asking them to write the angels as thought they were basically demons, I mean, nobody was asking for more insight into the unique angel history and culture.
Absolutely NOBODY ever asked for a human!Cas slowly learning how to be human alongside the Winchesters, no no, what we wanted was for Dean to kick him out on the streets with no supplies, and for like 90% of Cas’s learning-to-be-human story to happen off-screen, just show us the part where he complains about having to pee. Because it’s not like a character discovering what it is to be human is a great opportunity for storytelling or anything. We’ve all been clamoring for so long for Cas to be coerced into sex by a Reaper possessing a human girl, and for Reapers to suddenly possess the ability to possess people, and for Cas to be the unwilling accomplice is someone else’s rape, and then make jokes about it. Gosh, what we all wanted in Supernatural was MORE normalized rape. I myself wrote a postcard specifically asking for that.
Everybody wanted Kevin dead, that unlovable asshole. SPN has plenty of PoC characters anyway.
And absolutely nobody has ever asked for them to actually pony-up to the queerbaiting that they’ve openly admitted to doing. No no, what we wanted was more bad ‘ho-yay’ jokes. Characters can only be queer if it serves the plot, and we all know it’s ludicrous to think a queer man could stop the apocalypse.
Destiel? What’s that? I’ve never heard of it. Is that French for ‘sorry’? I may not know what that is, but I certainly know no fans have been asking for that, no sir, not a one. Cause if they did, obviously these writers would give it to them, they give the fans just about everything they want, after all.
I find your arguments fascinating, and I wish to subscribe to your newsletter.
Okay. Okay. Can I say, just for a second - I believe there is no way Sherlock doesn’t know what a date is. He understands innuendo (‘Do you want me on the floor, too?’ - that wasn’t just an innocent comment), he thinks John is coming onto him, and in spite of his seemingly oblivious reaction to Molly’s offer of coffee, he knows he can flirt with her to manipulate her to do things. He knows. And he isn’t someone to say things offhand - he also knows what he’s saying. Now, I can only take guesses at whether he was attempting to ask John on a date or he assumed they were already, in some proximity dating, but I do not for a second believe that he didn’t understand or that he didn’t mean it.
…I am now under the firm belief that even Sherlock thinks they’re dating, and John is literally the only person in this show’s universe that doesn’t.
How is this not possibly Canon, I mean, HOW.
It’s official, John is the only one who doesn’t get it. Even Martin Freeman gets it! Even my mum gets it!
EVEN I GET IT
AND IM ALMOST LITERALLY OBLIVIOUS TO INNUENDOS AND THINGS LIKE THAT
Guys, they’re just good friends.
Ha, I almost said that with a straight face.
I can’t remember this episode very well; at this point did Sherlock already know about the circus? He must, right? So instead of just telling John “Look, we need to check out this weird Chinese circus act for the case,” he tries to talk John into going on a date. Adorable.
BENEDICT IS LIKE THE ONLY PERSON WHO DOES NOT GET IT
^NO, ACTUALLY, IT’S JAWN.
OMFG I JUST
