(all the people I have not replied to - sorry! These have not been the easies few days....)

I didn't particularly like Eileen - I didn't dislike her, and the actress seems cool - but beyond what the actress brought to the role, mostly all we got was "she's so badass".... I find that so - just - I would have appreciated more. The representation seems to have been good/appreciated, so yay on that, but come on, please, you're Robbie fuckin Thompson, please put more into this ep's characters....??

Mildred made me super uncomfortable - had there not been the thing abou Dean yes being interested, it would have read like nothing more than "old people are gross".... and even that was shaky, fetishized, and I felt was - like the people making this were not exactly sure whether it was a joke or for real ? I'm *sure* she was written to say the opposite, but for me it did not read that way .... and again, badass = very boring characterization, problematic to connect with etc.....

I never connected with Alex, I only connected with Clair on her first ep (mostly), nd I kinda try to like Jody, it's not that I dislike her, but again, I like the actress, could do with more characterization....

After the new ep is definitely would not want the Wayward Daughters theoretical spinoff....
I've watched the new ep a second time instead of sleeping to make sure - I didn't miss some awesome goodness, but it is just so badly written and just .... no....

Am I really the only person who feels this way?

OK, so - I need to reply to people- and write papers and things -
so instead - this -
(I'm so not up to things I am supposed o be doing.... sorry.... ) -

Rose and Peony from Spindle's End
I don't want to give too much away, but I love unlikely friendship, and friendship between women, especially the sort who are supposed to hate each other, in tropes
When they finished laughing they were on their way to being not just friends, but the dearest of friends, the sort of friends whose lives are shaped by the friendship

Steven and Connie
It is not a perfect relationship, and I do worry for them sometimes, but each of them is so much their own person, and then they are so devoted to each other - they're so so awesome!

Legolas and Gimli

I mean, overcoming history and war to find the beauty in the differences and similarities between you, then planning to spend years traveling the world together, learning about each other's worlds? How gorgeous, loving and gentle ....

Elves of any kind are strange folk. Yet you comfort me. Where you go, I will go

Thingumy and Bob
It was so nice to sleep in the pittle lockets

Abbi and Ilana

They just - are so themselves and such parts of each other's lives, and so easily honest and enjoy each other even at hard times....

So many others!

Feel like sharing yours?
