OB finale aired, delphine is back and cosima is
I'm torn. On one hand I'm happy to have my gay girls back on my screen. On the other, stop fucking killing them off in the first place. Shaw was bearable because the writers were very upfront about Shahi's condition and were very obviously willing to do whatever they could do to work around her pregnancy so they could get her back. Rose I expected to have faked her death right away because it's a telenovela for christ's sake, who the hell didn't see that coming? But for shows like Arrow and OB and the one that shall not be named? The way they handled it leaves a real bad taste in my mouth. Not to mention one of them brought the lesbian back so they could kill her AGAIN.
Wynonna Earp may be a cringeworthy wreck, but in a show where dead people come back to life regularly, at least the queer girl who gets shot unambiguously lives.
These two are so cute it slays me and they happen to be two of the best characters in the show. Thank god there's confirmation that they're alive and well by the end of the series, I really don't think I can handle more dead lesbians this year. What is it about bisexual/lesbian pairings that make writers want to kill them the lesbian for plot?
That's the one about a kid with lesbian moms, right? Is it worth watching? It at least sounds like it might not kill off anyone or have the moms cheat or something equally terrible.
So Orange is Black 4th season started...
Nope, I tried first season but nothing in it really hooked me up, the lesbian moms, or rather bi woman and a lesbian mom, aren't really that interesting and aside of that and drama with the bi woman ex husband the whole focus goes on heterosexual romance drama between the teens who are their kids, so from yuri point of view it's not really that interesting.
Maybe someone could spoil if it changed into next seasons is bigger focus put on the moms part?
>drama with bi woman ex husband
>heterosexual romance drama between the teens
And here I was hoping it would be a show about lesbian moms in the background and boring teen angst in the foreground. I'd put up with boring kids if it meant a few moments of pleasant married lesbians, but of course they have to make more of the same tropey garbage every show has when gay women are involved.
I stopped at that Episode its episode 12, its safe too watch until then. I am usually pretty cool with dead lesbians but you know they pushed them do hard and they were so cute and healthy and worked through their issues, I should have known
Are you fucking kidding me. OITNB was like the one show left (that I'm following) that I thought was good for lesbians.
Well, fuck that, onto the next I guess. Time to start Wynonna Earp. And is anyone here watching Wentworth? I hear it gets dark, but what's the extent of it?
OB is the kind of show that is really tight-lipped about spoilers, and brochu definitely had other projects going on. based on how the beginning of ep10 was shot i think they always planned to keep her alive. just be happy.
kek what the fuck. i didnt think this show was gonna start killing non-antagonists. my
mom'sgonna be upset. i wonder if i can convince her to not watch it so she just has happy memories of SoL s3 ending.
i didn't think about the switch, but i think the main takeaway is that they have the ability to treat cosima and keep her afloat until the final season. thank god they're not dragging the show out even more.
>Spoil a show many people wanted to watch on the first day it airs
>Thinking a dead lesbian is that relevant in OITNB, a show swimming in lesbians and bisexuals
>Not realising they've been killing lesbians from the first season
>"waaah why don't people like my good deed waah"
Fuck off and die.
>>"waaah why don't people like my good deed waah"
What a retarded faggot you are.
>>Thinking a dead lesbian is that relevant in OITNB, a show swimming in lesbians and bisexuals
You deserve to get shit on by a pack of elephants, retard.
Go ahead, be butthurt some more. OITNB is crap and you suck.
While Root yet another dead lesbian, I was referring to Shaw and the new trend of "shockingly" killing the gays and then "surprise twist!" bringing them back. But if you think Root's death was the ONLY thing that could facilitate Harold's arc, you're sadly just as unimaginative as all the other het white show writers. But honestly PoI gets a pass from me on Root because I think everyone is going to die, except the Machine. And Bear. Though I do think Root died WAY to early.
Well Arrow was last year, but they killed bi Sara Lance and brought her back to life. But it all felt very...clumsy?
>OB is the kind of show that is really tight-lipped about spoilers, and brochu definitely had other projects going on. based on how the beginning of ep10 was shot i think they always planned to keep her alive
They're not that tight-lipped. Their spoilers just tend to be cryptic. The issue is how the writers acted after, and again after the Lexa debacle. Like I said, the PoI writers were VERY clear and upfront on their efforts to retain Shahi. VERY clear about the odds it may or may not happen. They didn't cloak it in "mystery," and then their further defensiveness was totally tone deaf even though they have previously been quite understanding of other hot button issues. Moreover there are only so many times "surprise! x character is still alive" a show can do before it get old. IMO OB already hit that limit. And from a purely fiscal standpoint, giving better/any reassurance that Delphine was alive would only have upped their ratings the entirety of the season, regardless of when they actually reveal it.
>just be happy
This may be a shock but one can be happy with certain events while still being critical/dissatisfied with how they came about.
Like I'm happy for Waverly/Nicole even though I objectively recognize the show is fucking terrible.
Plot is meh. The acting is terrible. Pacing is weird. All the characters are pretty 2-dimensional. It's weird, but in a sort of predictable way. It tries to straddle the line between campy and heartfelt, doesn't really succeed at either. At best it's mediocre.
It's a hit or miss kind of show where everything falls under it's potential. As long as you don't take it seriously, don't go in expecting it to be incredibly gay and don't go in expecting a masterpiece you'll be fine. My advice would be to do what I did and watch a few episode previews on Youtube before you watch it so you get an idea of what the show is like. If you really don't like the way it looks just stick to the WayHaught youtube compilations.
I actually finished that scene now because I admit I quit when it came clear she was gonna die any second, she actually suffocates. Mirroing erik garner I assume, pushing the black lives angle but it falls flat on its face because they choose a nice guard who feels really sorry you know and it was really an accident. honestly didn't need to see this. Why did I do this.
I used to watch it since it started airing but I dropped it like a hot potato on the episode in which Steph(?) cuts her hair. I understand that she
got a masectomy because of breast cancerbut that stupid speech about female identity reinforced through a fucking tattoo and a "male" haircut was just too tumblr/dumb for me.
It's from the latest Wynonna Earp, by the way.
Older sisters, huh. Always ruining the fun.
>She pisses me off, though.
Amen to that. Didn't like her the moment she became more than a random victim.
It pisses me off how obvious they made it. God damn I figured it out when they hit the treehouse. Willa's fake acting throughout the entire hotel debacle was ridiculous. How did no one, especially Waverly who is supposed to be the smartest one, spot that?
On another note though, A* for Nicole this episode. Living up to the Haught name.
>Does the older sis also have a thing for one of the girls too?
During one of the previous episodes the two older sisters were talking in the barn, and it was hard to hear part of what they were saying. At first they were talking about gummy bears, and then they talked about the older one wanting to make out with the gummy bears. I interrupted it as meaning that the oldest sister and the middle sister had played moving the gummy bears between each others mouths using their tongues.
>tfw Based Franco delivers in every single way.
>And is anyone here watching Wentworth? I hear it gets dark, but what's the extent of it?
You fuckers better start binging Wentworth right now because season 4 is currently airing and it's getting more and more likely that the main character is gonna bang a sexy chick any second now. Not that we haven't seen /u/ content before in this show but I've been waiting for the MC to become one of /u/s since season 1.
But this really is a dark show, so I'm pretty sure it will end badly, but goddamn these two are fucking amazing together and the show as a whole is fucking great too. The surprising thing though, as grim as it is, Wentworth has actually been quite merciful with their lesbians. It has featured multiple queer women during the series and so far only one of them has died.
Saw a youtube ad of some lesbian vampire movie that's coming to Netflix (or premium cable, forgot)
The ad had her bring the vampire chick back home to introduce to her mom
Anyone know which one I'm thinking of?
So that was not that bad, actually. I couldn't keep a straight face throughout it all, because it indeed is pretty fucking campy, but if you like lesbians and vampires and bad music it's 10/10.
Yara was really working it in that scene, and Daenerys seemed to appreciate it. I don't know whether I'd call Dany bi yet though.
Then again, she's already had sex with a woman before... but that was as practice at being a good lover for her husband.
It was miles better that it had any right to be.
Maybe Lifetime would make it a tv show like they did with Lizzie Borden, which looked like it would had lesbianism but never went higher than subtext.
>download 720p version
>there's a distracting "(movie title) coming next" during the sex scene
That sex scene was pretty bland, though. You hardly missed anything.
In all honesty, it gets all kinds of fucked up. I'm not going to bring up the good old "it deviates from the books too much" argument, but this season had me seriously question sanity and the ability to make rational decisions of many, many characters.
Also, magic bullshit. I'd say wait till it finishes airing and binge watch it in one go.
It's okay. I watched it before in lower res without any overlays, wanted to post some 720p webms but that banner was too huge, and it was the only time anything besides the logo is shown too. The network sure chose the perfect time to do it.
And the scene itself was fine, it's not like it would add anything to make porn out of it. Cuts were pretty noticeable and unfortunately chosen, but that's about anything I didn't like about it.
>Cuts were pretty noticeable and unfortunately chosen
I'm an autist that gets annoyed by this stuff, so it made the scene unpleasant to watch.
That and constant cuts to characters talking about serious business for two seconds before cutting back to sex.
>constant cuts to characters talking about serious business for two seconds before cutting back to sex
I liked that, actually. Or perhaps more precisely - the idea of connecting two time instants, but the execution was a bit clumsy.
>Season 3 dragged that show even further into the gutter but I was still thinking of watching it when bored. It would be nice if there was at least one /u/ show that didn't pull this shit.
After now watching all 13 episodes of new 4th season, it's just so boring.
I really hoped there would be much more interection between Alex and Piper, but for so many episodes there was literally nothing, and then suddenly in another episode a sex scene out of nowhere, killing the lesbian at the end instead of just making her to be released earlier to disappear from the series was just a really shitty move on the writer part(and even in her so called last episode tranitio nscene she didn't get some cute girls to move her on and instead got drag queens), for me it was the weakest season from all so far, it wasn't even funny, where's my black humor when you need it?
The whole crazy lady plot with Healy having revealed mommy lesbian issues was just so uninteresting... I wish they would introduce some new interesting characters but there was no one which I could say caught my interest.
5/10 season in overall thanks to nazi Piper, but later it was changed into another waste that they didn't make her go crazy nazi leader for longer and in bigger scale as joking goes.
Series finale of Person of Interest it today (and following the past few weeks pattern, the episode will out in less than an hour) so I might as well dump of Shoot stuff.
In other news Emison is back on.
And it going to be a thing for the rest of the show.
Personally i think they should have done this last season instead of turning Emily into a nun.
>There's some /u/ content in Finding Dory
Please no, don't make me lower myself so much so I would have to watch it for /u/ related content.
>In other news Emison is back on.
I thought they would bury that ship, maybe none of other actresses wanted to make out with Emily anymore than Ally?
POI Finale spoilers
Not sure how I feel about the ending. It wasn't bad but it didn't have the impact I expected. John getting riddled with bullets and blown up with Finch as witness was a good death at least. Much more than I can say for Root's. Fusco shrugging off yet another potentially fatal event and even Harold got to cheat death which just makes me more pissed with a finale literally talking about the meaning behind Death would play with it and cheapen it like that. The Samaritan hitman was comical by the end with how often he got away so his death didn't bring me any catharsis. His purpose in the show was obviously rushed and now that its over I still don't even know what the hell he was in it for besides giving a face to Root's killer
I'll miss it. Maybe in 10 years we will be lucky enough to get another /u/ worthy show of this caliber that delivers a good /u/ end.
I think that its obvious they producers got some kind of weird gay panic last season or something liek that or just maybe they wanted to not introduce a lame new romance with Emily that would end just like the ones the other girls got back into status quo, then again Sabrina exists...
PLL became a mess the last couple of seasons.
TVLINE | If there was a thought bubble above Shaw’s head when she is smiling up at the surveillance camera at the end, what would it say?
NOLAN | I think [the smile] is much about hearing Root’s voice [on the phone]. And one of the few regrets I have about the way the finale cuts together is that’s not totally clear. We had a moment between them at the end, dialogue in that moment with Sarah on the phone, and it just didn’t “fit.” At that point, “the train was running,” the main score was going, and it felt like it stepped on the moment. But the clear implication is that that relationship continues in this new form — and that the franchise continues. It felt to us not like a naked attempt to try to build a spinoff.
There could easily have been a conversation about a spinoff in Season 2, with the show riding high and Sarah Shahi’s character making such a splashy debut, but Greg and I weren’t interested in that. We were interested in doing one great show. We wanted everything to echo within the show itself, so in that moment at the end, the idea is just that The Machine keeps going, the mission keeps going. Shaw is like Reese, there’s the sense that this mission has given them meaning in their lives. And she leaves with a relationship with a dog and a god.
>show gets cancelled
>remembers you could get a spin off
>realize you put potential spin off protagonist in relationship with lesbian
>kill lesbian for 'plot'
>clean slate for spin off
Genius. No wonder they insisted so hard root had to die
thanks for the webms anon, was hoping to see the last one.
oh shit i must have taken a wrong turn.
honestly less brutal than expected, but i'm not disappointed. it could be because i was braced for the worst.
harold didn't cheat death, he had the death he chose taken away from him and then had to watch his best friend die. again. and maybe he tried to be happy this time because otherwise it'd be throwing away jons sacrifice.
And she leaves with a relationship with a dog and a god
Oh for fucks sake, that's utterly stupid.
So that was a long exercise in futility. Could've been really great, but unsurprisingly the longer something runs, the more chances it has of fucking up.
For all the flaws it had, I still think that it was a decent send off for PoI. Actually made me cry. Honestly, my main gripe about it was
Harold and Fusco not dying. Harold bled out on that rooftop for, what was it, 8 minutes? That's not counting him walking there and then walking back down the building to find medical aid. It would have been poetic for him to die, the man who helped instigate the war between two gods, and The Machine's final saying would still true if only because The Machine itself could be the one to hold onto Harold and John's memory. And since Shaw was the only one of the main crew not to have been critically wounded, she would have too. Now with Fusco, don't get me wrong I've always like him and if he wasn't injured at all I would have been happy, but since they bothered to get him stabbed multiple times they might as well have let him go. Fusco's death could have been the most touching of all if they went through with it: they kept him in the dark all this time to keep him safe and when they finally reveal everything to him and let him help keep The Machine safe he gets brutally killed, leaving his son fatherless. Having only John die in the finale felt like a bit of a cop out. I am happy Shaw lived though, she was the one I really did not want to die. I thought the graveyard scene would probably be the best 'Shoot' interaction we'd get, but The Machine actually causing Shaw to feel emotion by saying the words Root never got to say to her fucking killed me.
I'm talking about Harold cheating death by being shot in the gut and bleeding out but because of plot he survives, just like everyone else who receives serious wounds with plot armor Root survived multiple shots to her center of mass through the show until the writers finally decided she needed to die. And even Reese was still aware enough to look up and see the missile headed towards him even though enemies unloaded machine guns into his chest at point blank range. The realism of TV violence has never been good but that was absurd. Joss was the only one to get a realistic death scene.
Agreed, if they wrote this season with a spinoff in mind I would not be pleased.
I would have rather seen Shaw die too so the machine could develop a split personality and Shoot could flirt vocally, forever.
Yeah I agree.
Harold dieing would make the Machine's "lesson" that people live on in memories much more poignant as well as tie in nicely w/Greer's death - 2 men who sought to bring a "God" into the world for different reasons, both ultimately being killed for doing so. Also it bears some nice symmetry - if Root is killed off to facilitate Harold's "arc," Harold being killed off to facilitate the Machine's "arc" - who has taken Root's voice - is sorta poetic. Not to mention the whole flashback of Harold's relationship w/his (dead) father is a bang on metaphor for the Machine's relationship w/Harold (her "father"). Another wasted parallel. And yeah, John dieing was a total cheat. Should've reworked it so Harold and John died as a team. Fusco I don't care either way if he lived or died, I think he was too much a satellite character to the Machine for his death/life to have much meaning thematically. One thing I really have no problem with is Shaw. Stoked she lived. But again, had Harold died along w/John, it would've been a nice call back to when Harold told John he hoped he would continue "the mission" had he died. So basically I guess I'm saying the series/finale would have been a LOT better and stronger had Harold died.
Overall it was kinda underwhelming. Not enough to take away any enjoyment of the series, but enough to make me notice they missed a big opportunity to really round out the whole thing with impact.
is killing lesbians in stupid way some new writers meme?
So far we can count 3 liked lesbians killed this year in such way in tv shows where we really don't have so many of them at all.
I bet in Grey Anatomy next season Arizona will get killed too in some stupid way or maybe Emily will be the first one from big cast treated with similiar way in PLL.
Not new at all. That's part of the reason why everyone talks about it so derisively.
You're probably right about those lesbians getting a bad end in the future. Happy lesbians are a tragedy magnet.
Your count is way off. I think the dead lesbians are up to around a dozen by now? It's like 60% loss or something. 2016: the year of the queer girl cull on tv.
>I bet in Grey Anatomy next season Arizona will get killed too in some stupid way
Actually Shonda seems pretty good about not killing off her minorities on Grey's. Whether or not Arizona gets a good plot or remains on the show is up in the air, but I sincerely doubt she'll be killed off.
>maybe Emily will be the first one from big cast treated with similiar way in PLL.
There's no way any of the 4 girls are getting killed off (I doubt Allison will be, but if Marlene wants to kill someone for the shock factor it'd be her). And honestly, I believe all the girls will get their "happy endings." Of course Emily will still have bizarre plot lines if any at all and probably get treated like shit in the meanwhile. Dear lord this show needed to end like 3 seasons ago.
It's not new, not at all. It's just that because we're getting more and more lesbians in media that aren't just one-off appearances and have actual substance to them (basically main or recurring characters), the dead lesbian trope is becoming even more obvious than it already was. Even more so when Lexa and Root died within months of each other, two people that were popular, well-written and part of the most popular ship in their respective well known shows with the notable characteristic that they were the only lesbians (or rather, we assume Root was a lesbian. I'm not sure if the writers ever clarified it) that were part of the main cast.
I'll be suprised if they don't soften the trope next year after the backlash this year. Just look at Wynonna Earp, the writer actually went out and said WayHaught survives at the end of the season well in advance just to garner some good LGBT points for not killing off the lesbian in their show.
According to Autostraddle's masterlist, 17 lesbian & bi female characters have been killed so far this year. That's of course considering minor characters like that girl from The Magicians that was only in one episode.
>There's some /u/ content in Finding Dory, its not overt but its there.
If you're referring to the 5 second scene of two women and a baby carriage you can go fuck yourself. I know /u/ survives on scraps since the last passable yuri anime aired 10 years ago, but have some fucking self-respect.
>That's of course considering minor characters like that girl from The Magicians that was only in one episode.
Yeah, i get why they included really small characters on that list but it felt as cheap as how the writers of several of these shows used said characters, also the one in The Expanse...Julie Mao wasn't gay, i read the book a couple of months ago and then watched the show and no were they said she was gay or straight actually.
>According to Autostraddle's masterlist, 17 lesbian & bi female characters have been killed so far this year.
Really so many?
It looks I missed watching quite a big number of shows with lesbain/bi characters then.
I get the feeling that most of them are minor recurring characters. Still, 2016 is well ahead with the kill count.
As biased as the Autostraddle list is, it's giving me a few chuckles and a fair amount of nostalgia
>Jenny Schecter, The L Word (2009)
>Cause of death: Murdered by Ilene Chaiken
>Root didn't fake her death
>spoilers weren't an elaborate lie perpetuated by the showrunners
Anon, why did you get your hopes up? It was painfully obvious from the moment
Fusco sees her cold dead body in the morgue. Fusco wouldn't have looked so forlorn if she was faking it since no one else was there. If it's any consolation, at least Root died for something she believed in. Something in character and in a plausible way.
>why did you get your hopes up?
"/u/ - Denial and Suffering"
>it was painfully obvious
But I wanted to be surprised.
I'm pretty sure they shook off worse wounds. Fuck, Finchy Finch was bleeding out for 20 minutes and survived, and it's not like he was in top physical condition.
>If it's any consolation
Only bitterness and despair now.
Her romantic life, never gets any mention whatsover, which is weird considering that Miller does investigate her pretty thrughly.
Theres an inference,
by Miller, that she was probably raped in the Belt or something happened to her that some time ago.
Which could explain why there was never actually nothing romancewise in her life.
The dude that invented the drive had a pair of lesbian/gay friends in Mars when he was young in the short novella that launches The Expanse universe but they are really, really secondary characters.
And apparently rape stays, but incest is cut.
Fuck that noise, then.
Even if they aren't main cast, it's still a pretty horrific kill percentage. If you apply the same math (including minor characters like the article did) to any other minority group I don't think any of them die off at the same ratio/rate. (Well 'Murica loves it's government agency shows, so maybe Muslims?) And the year's barely halfway through.
There will be a season 4 right? I watch this shit because while Amy does go through a few chicks at least I still feel like Karma could be endgame. At least none of the lesbians are dying. I will take teenage drama and the chance of het just for that.
AFAIK it was cancelled mid-season 3, before Karma even got a chance to properly realize her feelings for Amy. But yeah, the ratio of lesbian screentime to hetero screentime was better for that show than for almost any others, I wish some other network would rescue it.
Actually I'd predict no romantic ending for either of the ladies. They fade out on the usual "gal pal" bonding moment which is absolutely no homo but also not 100% hetero and the show will remain forever in plausible deniability and subtext limbo.
I got halfway through season 2 of Faking and dropped it. Fucking garbage. It's better than Glee, but so is a steaming pile of dog shit. Most of the show's romance is between Karma and the Robert Pattinson wannabe kid. The rest is basically the bi girl pining after her straight best friend. The tension is never resolved because it was cancelled.
Don't watch Faking It, you will regret it.
The error is watching the series expecting Karma to be gay, she could be, perhaps a bisexual in abysmal deep denial or simply straight but Karmy was never endgame, it'd be too forced on Karma's side..
Amy got a girlfriend on the third season and by the end of it every major character had an SO, your "Robert Pattinson wannabe kid" ended up with the intersex girl.
I hated both Glee and Faking it, that said:
Glee was actually a better show overall.
The creator could sure give Ryan Murphy a run for his money in the biggest douche ever championship thou.
at least in Glee the latin chick and the retarded chick got their happy ending, right?
I'm still pissed off 'cause Faberry never went beyond subtext. meanwhile Rachel ended up with the asshole who threw eggs at her and Quinn with her douche rapist
also, didn't the Director of Faking it used to make fun of and criticize RM on twitter because of his treatment to lesbians? and then at the end of the first season he has Amy getting a good dicking from fish lips kek.
I totally agree with spoiler.
It's a shitty thing that Amy was bi and not a lesbian. Besides fucking fish lips aka Pattinson wannabe kid, she gets a romantic interest on season 2, the guy is nice but he's is a guy.
He pins after Amy but by the series finale he has a something going on with Karma as Amy gets back together with her girlfriend.
Also, the only lesbian in Faking It ended up being Amy's first girlfriend.
Me too he was awful, worse than Mako in LoK.
Also for all the hate you guys are giving faking it it did deliever on it's queer content without being overly biased between het and lesbian scenes. It was baiting to a straight crowd too but c'mon, with how little actual content and lesbian main characters we get I could dig it.
Bring back Reagan though, she was fine as fuck.
What about these guys?
For anyone who cares about Wynonna Earp and fancies getting spoiled on the /u/ stuff:
Nicole knows about the Revenants now, Dolls inducted her into Black Badge on the spot. Waverely admitted she loves Nicole to Wynonna after Willa outed them. Nicole got shot by Willa. But it's okay, she obviously wore body armour. Wynonna approves of Nicole dating her sister. Cue dramatic 'I thought you were dead' kissing while Wynonna is dismayed at the timing because they have way more important things to do. Nicole isn't seen for the rest of the episode after this.
Also fairly big spoiler for the end, which isn't really /u/ but kind of affects it:
Waverely is revealed to not be an Earp, Wyatt Earp is not her father. She touches Bobo's demonic blood, eyes go black and she suddenly shoots at Wynonna and Doc in a cliff-hanger.
What are the chances of this getting a second season? Because I loathe cliff-hangers not getting answered.
Why do I feel like someone pulled the rug from under me with that last scene? At least she's not dead. How closely did it all follow the comic books?
I can acknowledge it was the smart thing to do from the marketing side of it, but I still don't like it.
It seems it's pretty loosely based. Only two of the major characters, Wynonna herself and Bobo, are from the comic and in the same interview the comic writer admits that the TV show serves as backstory to the comic series so you can't really tell what exactly will happen in the show.
The story with Waverly is very unknown, she was created for the show. It's actually got me worried now since she doesn't exist in the comic, which may mean that she'll have to go away somehow...
I just had a funny thought. You know what the ending reminds me of the most?
Panty and Stocking.
>the gun doesn't fire, because it has no bullets
>Doc sprays her with sleeping powder
(becasue every western Doc carries a pouch of sleeping powder)
>Waverly wakes up restrained in Nicole's bed
>Nicole makes a sacrifice
of her virginitywhich expunges the evil from Waverly
>they go on adventures and shoot more dead guys
I want to believe.
If anything, it would be refreshing not to prolong it.
The point, you have missed it so bad. It's not that it's necessarily a bad literary device (although it's fair to argue that it's especially lazy writing nowadays given the overabundance of the "grim dark" slant current entertainment seems to have a hard on for) but that queer women already die disproportionately to everybody else. The article listed here >>2077942 may be biased af, but there's truth in there. The lesbians were already being killed off regardless of whether they had story arcs or not. But hey, if you honestly think the ratio of het couples "separated by death" is the same as homo couples are, I can't argue with delusion.
I took a look and I think I heard Heathen was good but not a fulfilling romance. I faintly remember someone posting Before you Go on /u/ before and it seemed ok. The rest look like a waste of money unless someone tells me otherwise.
>Wynonna Earp may be a cringeworthy wreck
i'm about 3/4 of the way through this. i suppose that's an adequate description, though possibly a bit understated.
i did finally get to the part where waverly and nicole hook up. suppose i'll have to finish watching it now
To be fair, it does get a little bit better. The pilot was the worst I think. Still its...bad. But there are lesbians, and they're not celibate, and they're still alive, so...hard to be picky in 2016.
Lexa's death was so incredibly stupid and ill-timed that it counts as 10
0stupid deaths at minimum.
The writers need to fucking kill themselves already.
Funny how it made me immediately think of this because of how similar it was.
>Sister my Sister
Bad end depressing crazy sisters but I don't remember anyone recommending it for the /u/. It only gets brought up whenever this question is asked because it is the only thing that has even a smidgen of western incest. I think there have been multiple adaptations actually and it is based on a book.
Today I heard of a short-lived romance between two women in a Finnish soap opera called Salatut Elämät. Their relationship ends in a pretty thoughtful, anticlimactic way, though -- neither of them are prepared to "turn their lives upside down" just to pursue a romance that might not last. I'm not sure how accurately this portrays modern life in Helsinki, but at least they didn't get stomped to death by reindeer or meet some other stupid TV lesbian fate.
>Inside, he found the bodies of Madame Lancelin and her daughter. They had both been beaten to the point of being unrecognisable, and one of the daughter's eyes was on the floor nearby. Madame Lancelin's eyes had been gouged out and were found in the folds of the scarf around her neck.
>In July 1933, Christine experienced a kind of "fit", or episode, in which she tried to gouge her own eyes out and had to be put in a straitjacket.
At least Lexa got killed off because the actress was leaving the show. Joss only killed Tara off because he has a boner for redheads and couldn't think of a better way to write a dark Willow story line. I still can't get over the fact that on a show where they fight vampires and demons every episode, she got randomly shot with a gun through the window by some fucking nerd.
Sister My Sister is alright. It has Jodhi May, who's pretty hot. She was in Tipping the Velvet too.
Buffy is a great show. By today's standards it doesn't have nearly as much action, but in the late 90's/early 2000's there was literally nothing else. Willow and Tara are a great couple.
>If one of them is Alison Hannigan
At least he managed to sneak in an lesbian oral sex scene during a musical episode on network TV while one of the girls was singing this:
>"The moon to the tide, I can feel you inside.
>I'm under your spell.
>Surging like the sea, drawn to you so helplessly.
>I break with every swell,
>Lost in ecstasy, spread beneath my Willow tree.
>You make me complete.
>You make me complete.
>You make me complete.
>You make me complete."
Left a channel on after I'd watched a show on it, and some show called Guilty was on after what I had watched. I was half paying attention while doing something else when I noticed a couple of lesbian characters going at it near the end of the episode. Guess its a possibility for lesbian characters somewhat regularly.
>You make me Cum...plete
Yeah that wasn't even subtle. Once More With Feeling was GOAT. The Buffy and Faith scenes were also great. I remember once someone said that the Kitty/Rogue sexy dance from Xmen Evolution was choreographed from the Buffy/Faith dance at the Bronze, and they're actually pretty similar. In the comic Buffy has sex with another girl, but I don't know if it ever goes beyond that.
Frankly the reason Lexa's death created such an uproar was because the producer/writers fucked it up IN EVERY POSSIBLE WAY. Like it's kind of unbelievable how BAD the whole thing was handled from the "real life" angle AND the "in show" angle?
1. "Queerbaiting" to a new low - flat out lying about her survival, seeking out lesbian forums specifically to lie about her survival
2. Set her up as a tragic figure, give her hope and sapphic bliss and then kill her literally seconds later
3. Shot by a stray bullet (in an almost identical way another beloved lesbian character was shot over a decade ago)
4. By someone who is a "father figure"
5. For basically falling in love (with another woman)
6. Ignore fallout of beloved characters death
7. Finally speak up to "apologize," only to double down and say "oh yeah, it was a totally great idea, I'd do it again. Btw she wasn't a lesbian she just happened to be gay."
8. Proceed to get caught in lies about schedule/network conflicts
9. The rest of the show proceeds to shit all over dead lesbians legacy
10. The reason the lesbian died is retconned so its not even valid anymore
11. The plot the lesbian died for is dumb as shit.
12. Kill her AGAIN.
Yeah. It's utterly mind boggling just how stupid the entire thing was. They could have avoided so much if they just hit only a few of those dumb points, but no, they hit ALL OF THEM. Honestly I didn't think anyone could fuck up as bad as Glee, but the genius' behind the 100 set an amazing new bar.
I didn't see that interview but I assume that they tried to steer away from her being labeled a lesbian and just as gay for damage control because of the loveable trope were it's the 'lesbians' that keep getting killed off just for the sake of it. It sounds like their dumb way of going 'But we didn't intentially follow the trope! She just happened to be gay when we killed her!'
Look, anonee-sama, I get it's dumb and unfair, but this dramaticism benefits no one.
Wow, I should've followed it a little more closely. Sounds like a real shitfest. I knew that other viewers were already quite torn up over Lexa being killed off, but I had no idea there was this whole stinking trail of mistakes after the fact. What a bunch of goombas. Makes you wonder how on earth they managed to put together a successful show in the first place.
I mean, it's The 100. A show about teen deviants being sent on an important mission because "hurr durr they're cannon fodder". I'm not sure why anybody expected quality out of it when so many things characters do makes you question their ability to make rational decisions.
And don't even get me started on its plot, let's add a goddamn A.I. subplot for half a season that leads to no real character development, has a couple of half-assed worldbuilding moments and would be pointless if not for the last ten minutes of it.
Yup, bang on. The whole "we don't see x character as 'a gay' so we're not part of the trope." With undertones of "stop making everything about sexuality!" When they just spent the entirety of S2+hiatus reaping the praise of introducing a bi lead & her lesbian love interest and bragging about it. Poor form.
That's not even being dramatic. It's just facts. Trust me I can much, much saltier.
Yeah, seriously. Amazing how bad it all went down. I mean who even did PR for those idiots? If they even had anybody, boy I hope they were fired. It's like a bullet point list of things not to do.
Season 2 was actually good though and it's what got it noticed by critics. Specifically once the dumb "throw a buncha kids to a probably toxic earth" plot is finished and the grounders become a more developed entity.
Which, like you said, they threw all away for that dumbass "sci-fi" plot. Which literally nobody cared about when they introduced it in S2. And honestly, you're too kind. I don't think the last 10 minutes are even worth the whole damn plot. It's moronic too.
man, i caught up on GoT afraid Yara was going to end up at the bottom of the ocean in the last ep. happy she didn't tho. you sl/u/ts are worse than the friend who told me to read the books in the first place because there was great lesbian sex.
they were a fucking liar.
here's hoping HBO feels bandwagon-y and opens s7 with Yara and Dany boning on a ship.
The lesbians tend to be the most interesting characters so there's emotion involved when you kill them off.
Plus it's a women's prison show thing. OitNB isn't the first to kill their lesbian inmates.
This artist is so freaking based, it's a shame he doesn't really do f/f that often.
I can believe this.
But yeah this huebro is a great artist, I even went to his Patreon to see if he takes commissions. Turns out that $30/month patrons get a monthly doodle of their choosing. It's tempting.
>decline a request
Not after money has changed hands, I wouldn't think. But I don't know the website's rules, or whether legal action can be taken against an artist.
In the case of Picolo_kun, though, a "monthly doodle of your choosing" is promised to patrons. It's not the same as a proper commission -- he couldn't possibly have the time every month to complete 10 full requests of satisfactory quality, so I'm guessing "doodle" means that you get what you get and you're expected not to complain too much.
>Brides to Be
>A wedding in a haunted house. A supernatural thriller about love.
Just saw this trailer for a movie, anyone see/hear anything? Not sure if I want to try renting it or not. The writing/acting seemed decent and the horror element give it an interesting twist even though I don't really like horror.
There are also two videos on that channel Together Forever and Practical Things that were shorts with lesbians.
>[It] is the kind of economical, smart, Hitchcockian film that M. Night Shyamalan wishes he could make
Anyhow, haunted house is usually crap. The trailer kind of makes it look like a sex sells thing.
>monthly doodle of your choosing
Where are you seeing that? All I see is "Monthly custom doodle sent to your email" which might mean he draws something he wants without any input and then sends it to you as a surprise.
I just wonder, cause I'm curious whether someone can hit up an artist, pledge 20 bucks and say "yeah, I'm paying, so you better draw dungeon rape porn now". Though I imagine it depends on how the pledges are constructed and someone who doesn't want to draw any would not leave them to free interpretation.
