It’s been way too long since your last OUAT rant. <3

I’m trying to be good. But, what the hell. Let’s do this:

I mean, REALLY: If someone were to write a book about this fandom and portray me as someone who ranted at least 8 times a season about the show, yet (for some reason) kept watching, I’d own it because, hey, that’s who I am.

So if, say, I was a queen who plotted to kill her husband and then coerced some schmuck into doing it, then continued to kill a bunch of common folk while on a vendetta against my stepdaughter, ripped a bunch of hearts out and kept taking advantage of my (admittedly, super-hot) underling, and someone wanted to paint me with the brush of “villain”? I’d own it and stop whining about it.

AT LEAST they’re actually making her try to steer into the curve of goodness by not killing Marian. And how messed up is it that I have to laud them for making one of the leads NOT kill someone?

In the meantime:

* I grow weary of the stick that’s perpetually up Grumpy’s ass. Yes, yes, he’s living up to his name. But can we give him something else to do other than getting everyone else worked up about something?

* So, hey, a blonde woman falls out of an urn with the same powers as Elsa? Elsa, whose other immediate family members look just like her sister and have no powers? GOSH, I WONDER HOW THEY COULD BE RELATED. I just haven’t the foggiest, so I do hope they’ll spend at least another nine episodes showing me vague flashbacks to Arrendale that don’t tell me a damn thing until episode 13.

If this show really wanted to surprise me, it would just use one episode rather than four to get to the damned point, and throw a bone in the remaining episodes to one or two of the other 20 cast members who just get to run around town, all worked up over something that Grumpy was feeling bitchy about.

Regina wants to track down the person who wrote the book, because she was written as a villain? Really? Maybe someone who gleefully killed her way through anyone who stood up for Snow was written like a villain because that’s what they were? Maybe?

This show’s annual attempts to whitewash Regina and turn the world upside down to connect Rumpelstiltskin to everyone who ever said the word “magic,” rather than give the other characters something to do beyond just getting all worked up and chasing after their own tails (I almost typed “tales,” and hey, that works, too), will never cease to astound me.

And yes, I meant for that sentence to be just as long and ridiculous as OUAT’s storylines.

do you ever get mad because there’s so much wasted potential in characters and relationships and plotlines in some shows

So they decided to have the troll king from Frozen in this new season. John Rhys-Davies was cast. This is really ridiculous and stupid. Why the hell do they need a minor character from the movie?

They can bring the entire cast of Frozen in the show, but can’t bother to take care of the characters that are already there.

That’s ouat for you.

Shiny New Toy Syndrome.

Hey, that’s what I call it, too!


I JUST saw “Frozen.” There was absolutely nothing about the ending that made me go, “You know what I need? Some dramatic tension to screw up this happy ending.”

And yet, here we are.

I wish they’d remember the people in Storybrooke that they established from the start of the show. I hate the gimmicky characters they keep bringing in because they don’t know how to write anymore for the ones they’ve already established.”

Word.

You’re probably aware that I’ve been running a fundraiser for Green Wish all week in honor of Mr. Raphael Sbarge. You can find that here. Green Wish is a non-profit organization that funds locally green projects in communities. Mr. Sbarge helped create it, and it’s…

Let’s shoot to get the first $100 in tonight! We’ll come together as a fandom and each donate $1-5 at least! That can go a long way, and it’s to honor Mr. Sbarge!

Signal boost! :D

Hey look, it’s Shep and Kaidan chillin’ like bros! ;)

I told Raph this looks like the promo shot for an 80s sitcom:

He’s an on-screen actor with roles on two shows at the same time; he’s a Canadian voice actor and videogame nerd. Watch what happens when they’re trapped at a con together, coming Thursdays this fall!

I’m so horribly awkward sometimes, but I took photos with Raphael Sbarge, aka Jiminey Cricket from Once upon a time who is also the voice of Kaiden in mass effect and Miltos Yerolemou, aka Syrio from game of thrones. And then my friends met a guy from Shield, but I haven’t had time to start that show so I don’t know who he was.

I’m the awkward Blonde.

Pretty sure the guy from Shield is J August Richards, if you want to check out something he’s in it would probably be better to check out Angel (spinoff of Buffy the Vampire Slayer) as he has a bigger role in Angel than he does in Shield

LOL. I love the Internet. Cause I took your friends’ picture with J.

Apologies to them, btw. If I’d have seen the light flare around his face, I’d have taken another shot.
