Day 23: "Oy vey..."  
Day 23 - Most annoying character

There are plenty of characters that I find annoying in almost all my fandoms, so it really depends. There are certain characters that are annoying mostly due to how a particular actor portrays them, or how they're written, sometimes even both. Sometimes it's not even a character I dislike, it can just be the direction the writers chose for a season or storyline or whatever. And honestly, it would take forever to really list the names of characters that I found the most annoying in all these fandoms that I have, so I'll just leave it at this because it could turn into a huge ranting post if I did. Besides, if you know me and are familiar with my opinions on certain fandoms, I'm sure y'all know which characters I find irritating and annoying, so I really don't need to get into that today. *g*

Masterlist of days here.

Okay, everyone knows that I don't do spoilers unless my curiosity gets the better of me and I seek them out myself. Well, there's been one particular spoiler that I couldn't avoid.

From SFX issue #198: "There's also been talk in the writers' room about how to bring The Trickster (Archangel Gabriel) back."
THEY'RE THINKING ABOUT BRINGING MY BB GABRIEL BACK! :D :D :D



Lord have mercy, I just about cried right when I read this. Seriously, if there was any character death on Supernatural I was the most upset about it was Gabriel's, for sure. I mean, I guess they read about how outraged most of fandom was based on the petition of saving Gabriel was put up the moment after that episode aired, and now they're in the works of actually fulfilling it. Which I'm very sure it was fandom's influence because our voices do count in certain ways.

I just hope if and when this occurs they better fucking use his character with everything they've got, because just to bring him back for a flimsy little thing is not gonna cut it. Gabriel is a fantastic character portrayed by a very talented actor, and this better not be one of those "bring them back only to use them minimally and then kill them off (again)" spiel that this show is very famous for doing now. THEY HAVE ALREADY FUCKED WITH MY EMOTIONS ENOUGH WITH FAKING OUT HIS DEATH AND THEN DOING IT FOR REAL, AND NOW THIS NEWS. IT BETTER BE FOR PERMANENT OR ELSE I AM CUTTING SOME BITCHES. Either way though, I know that Richard Speight Jr. will be absolutely thrilled once learning they're planning on this, because he's been just a sweetheart. Only four episodes of the whole series, but his gratefulness towards the fans have been so overwhelming that I'm sure he'll be just as overjoyed as we are when they finalize this.

My theories on bringing Gabriel back is quite simple: God brings Gabriel back because he was faithful to the cause. I mean, come on. Castiel was resurrected twice now and mostly it was in protection of the Winchesters. Gabriel did the same thing, coming through in the end, even if it was a suicide mission, but he put others first before himself and faced up to Lucifer. He deserves at least a reward for that, it just makes perfect sense. And my wish is that Gabriel and Castiel have more screentime together, brotherly bonding, perhaps traveling alongside the Winchesters. Or even their own little mission! Wishful thinking I know, because since when does the show focus on any other character, supporting or otherwise, that isn't the Winchester brothers? But you never know.

I know I shouldn't get my hopes up, but dammit this is GABRIEL! And I love Richard and this just, yeah. It makes me happy.


Other than that, I've been rewatching the first season Dark Angel, because it's been forever since I've watched it and I suddenly had an itching to view it again. I think it's interesting how many people now have started watching it from the second season rather than the first all because of Jensen Ackles. Which yeah, he was great in it, but I prefer the first season much better since I think it flowed more smoothly, mythology-wise. The second season introduced many new elements that were hardly finished, and it leaves me wondering had they not been canceled would those mysteries be resolved? I think the first season was simple enough that it had a mythology element that wasn't too complicated, but it was just right to keep you intrigued in what was going on. Also, as a personal observation, Jessica Alba seemed happier and healthier during the first season.

That's just my own take on it, anyway. Love the show as a whole, but the first season really remains my favorite due to that.

OMG IF THEY BRING THE TRICKSTER BACK, IT HAS TO BE DONE RIGHT. BUT THEY'VE MANAGED THAT EVERYTIME SO NO WORRIES :D
Renée: Gabriel. BB COME BACK!rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 02:16 am (UTC)
BUT THIS TIME IS DIFFERENT BECAUSE OF HIS REVEALED NATURE AS THE ARCHANGEL GABRIEL, AND I AM WARY IF THEY ARE GOING TO BRING HIM BACK JUST TO SIDELINE HIM. BUT THEY BETTER DO HIS CHARACTER JUSTICE AND HAVE HIM IN AS MANY EPISODES AS POSSIBLE.

I WANT A CASTIEL AND GABRIEL FAMILY REUNION IMMEDIATELY WHEN THIS HAPPENS. BICKERING WILL ENSUE, IT'LL BE AWESOME.

I TOTALLY FORGOT KRIPKE ISN'T THE HEAD ANYMORE. OMG WHOEVER'S IN CHARGE DO NOT MESS THIS UP PLEASE AND THANKYOU.
Renée: Caprica. Zoe Graystone.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 02:32 am (UTC)
THE FORERUNNER NOW IS SERA GAMBLE. SOMEONE WHO I DO NOT TRUST HANDLING THESE CHARACTERS AT ALL. BUT KRIPKE SAYS HE'LL STILL BE WORKING IT IN THE BACKGROUND, AND SINCE THIS IS HIS SHOW HE'S STILL MAKING MOST OF THE CALLS. NOT THAT I TRUST HIM ENTIRELY EITHER, WITH WHAT HE DID IN THE S5 FINALE. BUT AT LEAST WE KNOW HE'S NOT FULLY GONE FROM THE DECISION-MAKING. I HOPE.

*SIGH* I AM VERY VERY NERVOUS AND WARY ABOUT THE SIXTH SEASON BECAUSE OF THIS ARRANGEMENT WHICH ULTIMATELY FUCKED UP THE FIFTH SEASON AS A WHOLE, NGL.
icecoldrain: Stock - Cupcakesicecoldrain on June 26th, 2010 02:39 am (UTC)
IDK, WHATEVER HAPPENS IT SHOULD BE AN INTERESTING SEASON. ALL WE CAN DO IS HOPE FOR THE BEST AND EXPECT THE WORST, AND MAYBE IT'LL FALL SOMEWHERE INBETWEEN.

I WONDER WHAT SEASON FIVE WOULD HAVE BEEN LIKE IF IT WASN'T COMING BACK FOR A SIXTH SEASON. I GUESS WE'LL NEVER KNOW LOL.
Renée: BSG. We has teh mindfraks.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 02:45 am (UTC)
I DON'T HAVE HIGH HOPES, BUT YEAH I GUESS WE'LL SEE.

IDK, BB. S5 HAD TRULY BEEN THE FINALE SEASON, NO EXCEPTIONS, PERHAPS THEY WOULD HAVE HANDLED THE APOCALYPSE WITH MORE SERIOUSNESS? LESS FILLER AND MORE PLOT-FILLED? SOMETHING SUBSTANTIAL? THE FINALE TO NOT SUCK ASS? THAT'LL FOREVER BE A MYSTERY.....
icecoldrain: Supernatural - This party sucks.icecoldrain on June 26th, 2010 02:48 am (UTC)
I LIKED THE FINALE, AT THE END IT LOOKED ALMOST LIKE SAM WAS STANDING BY SOME CAMERAS AND I WAS LIKE OMFG WHAT IF IT WAS LIKE SUCKERS, IT WAS A SHOW WITHIN A SHOW. THEY COULD HAVE TOTALLY DONE THAT IF IT WAS THE FINALE SEASON TO PISS EVERYONE OFF LOL.

BUT YEAH, THIS SEASON WASN'T ALL EPIC</i> LIKE I WAS EXPECTING IT TO BE.
Renée: Cara. Warrior.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 02:53 am (UTC)
I LIKED SOME PARTS OF THE FINALE BUT THE REST I JUST HATED BECAUSE THEY DIDN'T FOLLOW THROUGH WITH ANYTHING THEY GAVE OUT. IT FELT INCOMPLETE, EMPTY, NO EXPLANATIONS WERE GIVEN. AND WITH EVERYTHING WE LEARNED, ALL THE STUFF THEY INTRODUCED TO US, MAKING US THINK SOMETHING BIG WAS GOING TO GO DOWN AND THEN SUDDENLY....OH, MEMORIES FROM A FUCKING TOY SOLDIER, SAM FALLS INTO A HOLE. THE END. HOW LAME IS THAT?

I KNOW, IT WAS ABOUT THE ~EMOTIONAL~ BROTHERLY STUFF, BUT YOU KNOW WHAT? YOU CAN HAVE THAT AND AN EPIC MOTHERFUCKING BATTLE UP HERE IN THIS MOTHERFUCKING BIBLICAL APOCALYPSE, FFS.

YEAH. I AM STILL BITTER AND PISSED AT IT. SUE ME. ;P
icecoldrain: District 9 - Wikus and Christophericecoldrain on June 26th, 2010 03:27 am (UTC)
I WANTED AN EPIC BATTLE TO. ACTUALLY, I WAS EXPECTING AN EPIC BATTLE BUT IT WAS JUST DEAN GETTING BEAT UP. AND JAKE ABEL ACTED THE CRAP OUT OF THE FINALE WHILE JARED WAS DOING ZOOLANDER IMPERSONATIONS.

ON THE OTHER SIDE, I CAN SEE WHY THEY SKIPPED THE BATTLE BECAUSE THEY WERE LEFT WITH 'WTF WOULD HAPPEN AFTER THAT?' BECAUSE OF THE ADDITIONAL SEASON.I WOULD HAVE RATHER HAD AN ADDITIONAL SEASON FOR THEM TO GET ALL EPIC APOCALYPSE ON US.

BUT I'M GOING TO GIVE SEASON SIX A CHANCE, I'M ALL MIXED UP ON IT. IT MEANS ANOTHER SEASON AND I WAS ALREADY LIKE OMG IT'S GONNA BE WEIRD WITH NO NEW EPISODES OF SUPERNATURAL. ON THE OTHER, I'LL BE SAD FACE IF IT'S EPIC FAIL.

YES. TO ALL OF THIS YES, ESPECIALLY HAVING AN ADDITIONAL SEASON TO HAVE A SUCCESSFUL APOCALYPTIC ENDING. THAT'S WHAT I HAD WANTED, SINCE THERE'S NOTHING OUT THERE THAT CAN TOP AN APOCALYPSE LIKE THIS ONE.

ALTHOUGH EVEN WITH THE KNOWLEDGE OF A SIXTH SEASON THEY SHOULD HAVE CONCLUDED THE FINALE WAS SOMETHING BIGGER AND SOMETHING MORE FULFILLING TO WHAT THEY'D BEEN HYPING IT ALL UP TO BE. YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN? LIKE, SERIOUSLY. EVERY SEASONAL ARC SHOULD HAVE A SUCCESSFUL BEGINNING, MIDDLE AND END REGARDLESS.

MYSTERY SPOT + CHANGING CHANNELS.

Renée: Castiel. Whumped :(rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 03:53 am (UTC)
WASN'T IT SAID THAT JEREMY CARVER WAS LEAVING AFTER THIS LAST SEASON? I THINK THAT'S WHAT IT WAS.

WHICH I'M LIKE NOOOOO! HE'S ONE OF THE FEW WRITERS ON THE SHOW I ABSOLUTELY LOVE AND TRUST WITH THOSE EPISODES ALONE! D:
kaiyotekaiyote on June 26th, 2010 03:57 am (UTC)
WAIT, WHAT? I HAVEN'T HEARD THAT! I WILL HAVE TO GO LOOK FOR THIS! D;

I DO KNOW THAT HE'S WORKING ON... BEING HUMAN, I THINK?

BUT HE NEEDS TO STAY ON SUPERNATURAL TOO D;
Renée: Castiel + Cell phone = OTP.rogueslayer452 on June 26th, 2010 04:12 am (UTC)
I THINK THAT'S IT, YEAH.

I REALLY REALLY REALLY REALLY HOPE HE GETS CALLED BACK TO DO ANOTHER EPISODE, PREFERABLY GABRIEL'S BECAUSE HE DOES GREAT WITH THOSE ONES.
kaiyotekaiyote on June 26th, 2010 04:24 am (UTC)
LOL, I'M LIKE SEARCHING SEARCHING SEARCHING RIGHT NOW TO TRY AND SEE IF HE'S GOING TO BE STAYING ON OR NOT.

SO FAR IT JUST SEEMS LIKE SPECULATION INSTEAD OF ANYTHING CONFIRMED? IDK, I WILL HAVE TO LOOK MORE.

ALTHOUGH WITH HIM BEING ON ANOTHER SHOW CHANCES PROBABLY AREN'T SUPER HIGH.

IDK, I JUST WANT HIM TO WRITE MORE EPISODES FOR SUPERNATURAL. :(

IF HE IS LEAVING I WONDER WHO'D BE REPLACING HIM, THOUGH...
