yeah, i’m over the slapping/firefly references. it was all awkward to me. (but other people still love that so?) the whole thing was just the boys being dumb. (and i love them, but it’s been six years …) not enough stana, not enough of any of the women really.
i feel like last year’s was more natural and funny. how are they trying to tell me they had only 35 seconds of that weirdo stana in a 6 minute video? she is basically a walking blooper reel.
see, i don’t blame them fully, but you know where i do place a lot of the blame? abc, the writers, etc. i 100% think they allow it to affect the way they write the show (can you say “we have to respect the characters’ privacy”?), the way they schedule interviews, photoshoots, etc. a lot of it is also abc completely ignoring this show, but it is clearly not a coincidence that the photoshoots/interviews stopped like 2-3 years ago. i think catering to their whatever is ridiculous. they’re actors, they have PR training, they can figure out how to do an interview together. because having the two romantic leads on a network tv show not do any promo together for several years (especially just as their characters actually got together?) is so much more obvious and weird.
that stuff is just a part of what it is to be on a tv show, and the absence of it all is glaring.
yay! i feel the same way. i am definitely 100% for differing opinions and debates/conversations … that’s what’s fun about fandom to me.
lol. it drives me crazy that nobody really talks about it, and anybody who brings it up is told to stop “creating drama.” if someone is making it one of them versus the other, i get that, that is unnecessary/dumb, but i’ve never done that and i still get shit.
i basically feel like it’s a thing that exists in reality and completely ignoring it makes it feel more awk to me haha. this is a coping mechanism people.
