we don’t just need feminism, we need lisa simpson feminism
The best part about the Simpsons was it was written all by educated men that wanted to be comedians but saw things wrong with the world and wanted change.
Anonymous said: A&E having help? JJ Abrams. Seriously, A&E have been working alongside Abrams since the Felicity days. Hell, Once uses the exact same format as Lost. They claim to have been working on season one for 10 years. So, honestly, does anyone think they DIDN'T have Abrams, or Lindeloff, give some notes on their 'cool story'? Season one of Once has Abrams fingerprints all over it, particularly when compared to seasons two and three. Without that particular guidance, they've lost the plot. Literally.
Okay, but why would Abrams allow his ideas to be stolen by A&E and thrown into this (now) craptastic show? Or, you rather meant they were ‘given notes’ in terms of guidance, after which when they took off on their own – and we got what we got, now? Either way, what you’re saying makes perfect sensical sense. Because if MY ideas were taken in this way and then twisted, I might actually wash my hands of it all. So the question remains, and you do evoke this question once again, as to the rights of two cis white men to retell fairytales in any way shape or form – much less the racist, heterosexist, sexist manner in which they are retelling them?
But now there’s also this news about possibility of a spinoff with Frozen characters (testing the waters, anyone?) as well as indication that Disney might not give BrothersDim full reign (and will naturally retain full creative control over their golden hen, doh) and also this interview where Kitsis says that they’re just average fanfic writers (paying homage to the successful franchise they can only dream of, naturally)? All of which leaves NO doubt about what the real reason why pandering to (what they think is) their most “revenue-generating” audience takes precedence over actual intelligent storytelling, and the re-imagining of the iconic fairytales featuring strong female characters – as what we have been promised, to start with?
This one might be true. There was a comment a while back from someone in the industry that showrunners are often given a minder in their first seasons. The comment also said that you can tell if that was the case by looking at the discrepancy between season 1 and subsequent seasons. This begs the question why studios would invest time and money into a minder for just one season, but… Also ppl like JJ Abrams and Joss Whedon often script doctor for oodles of money, but without credit.
Given the above I think it plausible that someone talented guided season 1. Then that person moved on leaving tweedle dee and tweedle dum to fuck up royally.
this fic fucked me up so bad and i cried for hours
here read it
listening to a song about a relationship and thinking I can’t relate to this at all
I’ve read fanfiction by 14 year olds with more narrative consistency and character continuity. Calling Ouat fanfiction is an insult to fanfiction…
although at least there’s no mpreg…
Disney needs to get a better handle on what a fandom can produce before it spends money on attempting to engage with fans, then, because it’s like the writer with the least talent that begs for reviews on ff.net just got given an unlimited budget, and has the nerve to insist that their interpretation MUST be Canon.
IF IT’S ALL FANFIC, THEN NOTHING IS CANON.
God damnit, The Fosters was supposed to be my stress-release not make me a sobbing mess.
