Katherine Pierce.

United, we stand.

Ladies and Gentlemen, after four months of fighting the man and picketing, THE STRIKE IS OFFICIALLY OVER. With 92.5% of the writer's vote (3,492 said yes, 283 said no), there's no doubt about this now: the strike has come to its end. Now the remaining question remains, what will happen to our shows now that it has been decided? Some will be returning this spring with new episodes, others will be postponed until the fall season. Some have uncertain fates due to ratings while others have been axed indefinitely. You can look at this article here to learn more about the futures of your shows. For my favorite fandom, Heroes will be returning this fall. It seems like a long way away, but I think the extended perid between now and that time is a good thing.

Anyway, this strike has placed many things into perspective. Like how we tend to take what happens behind the scenes of our favorite shows for granted, and the hard work these writers do and the headstrong determination to fight for what they believe in. Things may have changed in Hollywood because of this strike, but I firmly believe it is for a good cause. Many people may not like it, and there was a lot sacrificed in this and it's going to be a gradual comeback for many writers with their still-bitter feelings, but in the end it was all worth it.
