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.

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.

THIS. THE FINALE WAS A LET DOWN WHEN YOU THINK ABOUT EVERYTHING THAT WE HAD BEEN GIVEN AND IT'S LIKE...THAT'S IT? IT COULD HAVE SERVED AS A SERIES FINALE, AND PARTS OF IT WERE PROBABLY GOING TO BE APART OF IT TO BEGIN WITH. BUT YOU KNOW THAT'S PROBABLY NOT WHAT WAS ORIGINALY PLANNED BECAUSE THEY HAD TO GET AROUND THE SIXTH SEASON.

I LIKED IT AS IT WAS, BUT THERE WERE THINGS THAT WERE LESS THAN STELLAR. AND EVERYONE HAS A PROBLEM WITH IT IN SOME FORM OR ANOTHER, THERE'S NO DOUBT ABOUT THAT.

AND IF SEASON SIX IS EPIC FAIL, WE'RE ALL GOING TO LOOK LIKE A WEIRD COMBINATION OF THIS AND THIS

THERE WERE MANY FAULTS WITH IT, AND MANY THINGS THAT PEOPLE DISLIKED ABOUT IT FOR SURE. AND THE MORE I THINK ABOUT IT THE MORE I REALIZED THERE WERE SO MANY PLOT HOLES THAN I'D REALIZED. AND GOD, HOW I HATED THAT RANDOM ENDING. JUST, UGH.

IF S6 DOES NOT DELIVER I WILL START WAILING ON THEM LIKE THUS:



BECAUSE LORD KNOWS I DON'T WANT THIS SHOW TO TURN INTO THE NEXT HEROES OR SMALLVILLE. :/

I KNOW WHEN I REWATCH THE SEASON I'M GONNA BE LIKE OMG WHY SO MANY PLOTHOLES.

OMG HEROES. LETS HOPE IT DOESN'T COME TO THAT.

I THINK THEY HAD SOMETHING GOING IN THE BEGINNING OF THE SEASON, BUT SOMEWHERE ALONG THE WAY - PARTICULARLY ONCE GOING WITH THE NOTION OF "OH SIXTH SEASON" - THEY LOST SIGHT OF THAT AND HAD TO MAKE CHANGES, FOR WHATEVER REASON. WHICH REALLY SCREWED EVERYTHING UP. :/ WHICH IS SLOPPY WAY OF HANDLING IT, TBH.

*CROSSES FINGERS IT DOESN'T EITHER*
