butterfly: (Back Again -- Doctor/Rose)
I am going to be posting backdated versions of meta posts that I wrote on tumblr. I'm going to try to remember to get the settings right each time, but I might make some errors. Just FYI. <3

honestly, the more i think about it, the more annoyed i am that shiro’s personality got streamrolled like that? in which the culmination being that all his former dreams were thrown away so that he could get married to some random person we have never see him interact with before (apparently he works on the atlas bridge, i have learned and was given a name… in the subtitles only… but, you know, i shouldn’t have to play where’s waldo with a main character’s ‘endgame’ love interest).

like… Shiro loved space so much that he ended his previous relationship to go follow his dreams. he spoke in s6 about loving being a paladin and that was AFTER all the trauma he’d been through in space. he got his own fucking ship to captain so that he could be part of the final arc. and then… apparently none of that means anything to him anymore and his ‘happiness’ literally ONLY relates to his sexuality, rather than any of his previously established personality traits or any of his previously established friendships.

i mean, at least keith’s ending flows from his actual previous actions and personality in the series, you know? hanging out with the blades. helping people. sure, okay. and we know keith has a habit of running away from relationships and shutting down if he’s worried he’ll lose them, so i even buy that he would cut off his friends like that and only see them once a year, though it does mean his ending is depressing as fuck, too.

but shiro? shiro’s love of space not even being MENTIONED in his ending? part of the reason that shiro being confirmed queer at the start of s7 was so ground-breaking was because he was already such a fully-rounded out and beloved hero! he had a strong, established personality and emotional connections to the people around him. but apparently none of that matters! just the fact that he likes dudes. that is the ONLY thing relevant to him in the ending. we know nothing about this dude’s personality or their relationship. we don’t know when it started. we don’t know jack shit about it. but it’s gay and that’s supposed to be enough. shiro deserved better. he deserved to still be SHIRO, not just a cardboard cut-out that looked like shiro.

anyway, since alternate realities are a confirmed thing in vld. i guess i’ll just assume they accidentally set s8 in a different reality to the one we’ve been watching in the previous seasons. one where shiro is defined solely by who he wants to date, has no friends and only coworkers, and has no goals or dreams. depressing reality, but at least it’s not the only one.

My disappointment over dropped character and relationship arcs in VLD S8 happening in such close proximity to that nail-biting episode of Critical Role did remind me of one of the things that I love so much about CritRole and the RPG genre:

Because every protagonist is helmed by a specific player, every main character has a fierce advocate (of course, it does mean if that person isn’t there, their character will fall a bit to the wayside - ex. Yasha while Ashley films in NY). But, in general, I don’t have to worry about things like Caleb’s friendship with Nott suddenly disappearing and them only having work-related convos, because that friendship is incredibly important to Liam and Sam. Because the players power the characters, the core of the characters will always be intact. And that’s not something that can be guaranteed with pretty much any network-type show.

Like, damn, so many of the themes of the season - about cooperation and about love! So into those! Loved seeing how it took everyone all together to win! I loved so much that we got the… uh… At-Tron? The Atlas-Voltron mecha and that Shiro was part of that last journey. I was so into that! Seeing Shiro’s face with the other five gave me so many feelings!

But… man, it was weird to me that Shiro and Keith’s friendship… went underground after the EPIC Black Paladins episode in S6 and then bringing Shiro back in S7 (…literally the same vibe as the Lance-brings-back-Allura scene this season, too). Keith had multiple one-on-one conversations with Lance (mostly about Lance’s relationship with Allura, it seemed)… but absolutely zero time for a one-on-one personal conversation with Shiro. I mean, even if the writers were overwhelmed by the chance to have Shiro have an on-screen kiss… that doesn’t mean his friendship with Keith should, you know, stop existing. So that was weird. It was like Shiro was just friends with VoltronGroup as a whole and his personal connection to Keith didn’t matter at all, even though they were fighting Honerva, who had specifically called out their connection during S6 as a big deal.

And the big goodbye with Allura and the Paladins was… I mean… it kinda felt more like they were sending her off for summer vacation than sending her to her death. That’s part of why I thought maybe she was coming back at the end!

So… idk. Endings are hard. It’s easy to fuck them up. But it just kinda felt like… I’ve been watching a marathon runner going around a track, cheering them on, and then when they’re five feet away from the ending mark, they got distracted by something, wandered off, and never finished the race. I feel… unsatisfied.

Well, at least there’s always fandom.

I was also disappointed because I thought the lions all lighting up was going to mean Allura was coming back! So, yeah, basically the ending was a series of “oh, well, that’s not what I hoped for’ moments. Which is a shame, because I loved SO MUCH of the actual season.

Tags: so much was great! and then the ending just... kinda fitzed out i mean sadly i was emotionally prepared it's not the first time a generally great show has had a disappointing ending from an emotional standpoint *stares at syfy's haven* but still a disappointing ending can color the previous stuff even if that stuff was really great! so... unfortunate

On another note - one day I may understand why so many shows that spend time building up a found family will split them all apart at the very end… but that is not this day.

Original Post: VLD S8 - found family

On a meta level, I totally understand ‘grabbing whatever representation we can where we can get it’ but man, on a personal level of actual emotional investment, my interest in ‘main character hooks up with nameless random at the literal last seconds of the show’ is… basically negative infinity.

Anonymous asked: I was specially looking out for poi spoilers before I watch the show because I was fearing this would happen. I heard people say that since the trope wasn’t as badly written as on the100 it isn’t bad but to me that’s not the crucial element of the harmfulness of the trope which is imo already minimal queer female rep and then staggering amount of death/tragedy for these already underrepresented rep. It can the best or worst written thing ever it doesn’t change it for me,

Butterfly replies: Yeah, part of the ouchiness of the trope is that both bad and good writers do it. It almost seems to be a constant of network television and it’s just really depressing. Whether the writing is gold or trash, queer ladies are always expendable.
Like, I read that there’s a new couple over on Wynonna Earp and apparently right after they got together, someone said in an interview about the show that ‘no one is safe’ and general fandom went ‘oh no’ because at this point, we are just conditioned to feel that ‘no one is safe’ means ‘queer ladies aren’t safe’ because they’re usually the first on the chopping block. So, I’m kinda in a place where unless a new show actually is willing to say ‘hey, everyone is safe’, then I kinda just want to wait until the last episode of a show has aired and then watch it after I already know that the wlw actually survive the ending.

Tags: the day the world went away is certainly an apt title for the episode

Original Post: POI - reacting to Root's death

Other Tags related to this issue: i don't know if i can say that root deserved better than the ending she got she did a lot of terrible things she said herself that a good ending would probably be more than she deserved and that's probably true but queer ladies watching tv deserve better than to constantly see their only representatives die and i realize that this ending was written and shot before the epidemic of queer ladies on tv this season getting killed all over the place but 'we were killing wlw before it was popular' is not really a winning argument bury your gays code 307 which is named after lexa i assume dead lesbian trope i already miss your face another one bites the dust :-(

it really hurts that they never got to have this in reality i was telling that anon a couple of weeks ago that it would make no narrative sense to give them this in a simulation and then rob them of it in reality and it really doesn't it makes everything feel rushed and cheated and frustrating a week ago i was so excited and into this show it's so exhausting to be put in a place where all that gets taken away when i think about the fact that poi is airing tomorrow i just feel exhausted and concerned that it'll be shaw's turn to die for the team she IS the last lady left standing after all they were so close to making it out alive i put SO MANY shoot scenes in my queue before last week happened and i don't want to take them out because i do still love them but now there's this frustration and tiredness and yeah some bitterness i'm just so tired that we keep losing what little representation we have

i'm so sorry shaw you got to have her back for such a short time before the inevitability of queer ladies dying on tv took its toll

i still can't at this point decide whether or not i'm glad i started watching this show john's face in the middle there that's still kinda how i feel right now it hurts whenever i think about it

hope is so important when you kill hope so much else dies along with it i have to admit that i have a hard time understanding how the writers who so clearly understood how powerful and important hope was for sameen failed to understand that hope is important for their queer fans too

i miss you i miss you so much you were worth more than just a voice you're more than just a voice god i miss you

When I said ‘even if it ends tragically’ about Shoot, I was still not thinking that would happen this episode? Like, I was thinking finale. Not literally the episode right after they reunited. That sucks. That’s disappointing. I wish queer ladies weren’t always considered so expendable.  We’re important enough to kill to motivate (usually male!) characters but not important enough to actually be allowed to stick around to the end of a story.I think I may start a new policy of only watching shows with queer ladies if the entire run of the show has completed and I already know whether or not they die (which reminds me: check out All For One – it’s adorable with many queer ladies and S1 just finished). For POI, I think I’ll probably wait to catch up on the rest of the episodes after they’ve all aired, rather than watching week by week. I still want to know how the story ends, but I’ve been pretty strongly derailed, excitement-wise.

Original Post: the day the world went away

The brother line tonight on SPN did make me appreciate all over again how unique and vital Person of Interest was for actually following through on their queer subtext – for taking the chemistry between Root and Shaw (neither of whom were originally intended to be queer, if what I’ve read is accurate) and going “you know what, if this were a guy and a girl, it would be a romance, so let’s make it a fucking romance with kisses and undeniable canon text and a whole-hearted love story”. I mean, I still have to wait until the end of the season to find out whether or not they’re a tragic queer love story or not, but I appreciate the show for taking that first step, even if they fail to take the second one and give the queer ladies a happy ending.

Which just makes me upset all over again how terribly CBS has treated POI.

So, hmm. Quite a lot of that I loved. Pretty much everything involving Amara was A+, yay! and I really enjoyed the introduction of Lady Toni, who is, indeed a MoL and an antagonist. Seeing Billie again was fantastic. And… was that the first finale ever where no one died? (at least, I don’t think anyone died).

So, obviously Shaw’s escape emotionally overshadows everything else that happened the last couple of nights (\O/), and I’m certain I’m going to reblog tons of gifsets about it, but there was a lot of information about how Samaritan thinks vs how the Machine thinks in the last couple of episodes and that was pretty fascinating, too.

“I hated myself and so I punished you.” That kinda sums up the whole episode right there. There’s a lot of self-loathing and a lot of anger and a lot of rage.

I enjoyed this episode but I don’t know if I have a lot to say about it!

I think that’s partly just because this show is so intense that I really need more than one day to process the last episode before my brain is ready to jump into the next one, so I’d like to extend a hearty ‘fuck you’ to CBS for burning off the show like this.

I was not expecting Elias to be alive! But, on balance, I was pleased to see him.

Fusco is going to keep pushing until he gets himself killed – TELL HIM THE TRUTH. And this is a parallel to what we saw with Elias’s friend (whose name has slipped my mind), where he’s just gonna keep pushing and pushing so you really need to be honest or he’ll get himself killed.

I noticed that Finch held back how bad things are really going in the Machine v. Samaritan simulation from Root but opened up to John about it with minimal pushing. I also noticed he said ‘she’ again when talking about TM. <3

Everyone’s fear over potentially losing John (after having lost Shaw) was well played.

I’m glad they were able to save the number. And I liked Root potentially putting some doubt into one of Samaritan’s agents.

John has no apparent angst over the break-up with Iris, but he never seemed that into her, so this is not entirely unexpected.

I knew going into the episode that it was a simulation, so I was slightly distracted looking for tells in the direction and narrative (the flashes of light even after the chip had been ‘removed’ being the most obvious), but as an intense character study of Shaw, this episode is very effective.

I am so happy that I wasn’t spoiled for Kevin’s brief appearance. I yelled and practically fell out of my chair. Oh my GOD. Kevin! Baby! I missed you! It sucks that you’re still dead! But it was really good to see you!

I have to admit to being a little bemused that John and Iris were already at the ‘meet parents’ and ‘sweetheart’ stage of their doomed attempt at romance. When did that happen? Sadly, I’m not surprised that John arranged to meet said parents in a restaurant where he was doing numbers work, despite that obviously being a terrible, terrible idea.

And so Iris/John ends with a whimper, not a bang. Probably the most positive ending they could have gotten, considering the other would likely have been Iris killed by Samaritan (tho I guess that could still happen).

My eulogy for the Iris/John relationship – you didn’t really have chemistry, you were an unethical and bad idea from the start, and you had the shelf life of a banana, but I guess it could have been worse.

I wish for Iris to have a long and happy life and date no more patients. I wish for John to stop idealizing ‘normal’ life especially if it means lying to the people he dates because he chooses to date people who can’t survive in the life that he chose to live. John telling Iris that she reads him well was the funniest thing he said all episode, except that I think he actually believed it, which makes it both funny and sad.

I LOVED seeing Kara again and meeting Beale (I think we haven’t met him before?). Flashbacks are my favorite thing and Kara is such a great character. Terrible person, great character.

Definitely intrigued by the larger plot lines hints with the malware. What is it doing? And Finch doing his part in both plots was great. I love when he gets hands-on and in the field.

The episode starts out delightful (facial recognition!), becomes intense and terrifying, then gives us back a tiny bit of relief and happiness (family picnic!) while reminding us that greater horrors loom in the distance.

I have to admit that I’ve never had strong feelings about the Chuck=God thing one way or the other before now, but that opening scene sold me on it. Metatron’s clueless douchbaggery was the perfect way to introduce this element into the story. Also, Chuck’s ‘World’s Greatest Dad’ mug cracked me up the second I saw it (because it’s so hilariously NOT TRUE).

That was incredibly stressful (in a good way).

Apparently, it’s now a rule that all Harold/Machine interactions will cause me to weep buckets of tears at some point in an episode. The flashbacks killed me. I am dead and typing from the afterlife fyi.

Everyone was perfect. Everything was perfect (and very intense and stressful). Root’s voiceover at the beginning had me waving at the screen in terror because it was beautiful but ominous, and then things just kept getting more and more tense over the course of the episode.

Root using her past criminal connections to find a way to save the Machine was like ‘aaaah’ and then her basically telling Harold how much she admires him was very sweet. I love their relationship so much. It’s just this complicated living thing that started out as weird and kinda twisted but now has a beauty and a purity to it, idk.

John Reese got to do so many John Reese-y things in the episode; I was delighted. I didn’t mind John Riley as much as some people did, but I never liked the Riley cover anywhere near as much as I like John Reese, so I was throwing him virtual hearts whenever he showed up on screen.

I was kinda doing that for all of Team Machine tho because I looooove them.

I can’t even really talk about Harold’s plot because it was just too many emotions and I am, as previously mentioned, dead because of them.

I’m so excited/terrified for the remainder of season 5!
