What do you think happened to James' full frontal scene? Maybe they pulled it from the finale because they needed more time for Bill's endless dying. If that's true and the scene was a love scene w/Lafayette, maybe that's why Lafayette was absent from the finale until the end, because they cut his only part? It also means the last sex scene ever on True Blood was the sad, comical Ginger/Eric one. I'd expect better from a show that had portrayed sex in such fun and creative ways.

Oh, man, I forgot about that! 

I think that full frontal scene was supposed to be in episode 9, though, not the finale. But it doesn’t change the fact that, if filmed, it was definitely cut, and probably in favor of more Bill. Sigh. 

And yes, when you think about it, the “love” scenes in this season were all kind of off: That uncomfortable veiny Bill and Sookie coupling (a guilt-fueled, completely unsexy one). A queer-bating dream between Jason and Eric that led absolutely nowhere and had no narrative purpose at all. An Eric and Sylvie aborted vineyard tryst that ended in her dying! The cringe-worthy violent coupling between Violet and Jason on the hood of the car. A scene of James two-timing Jessica with Lafayette (not exactly a stuff of dreams). A sad/comfort sex between Jason and Jessica. A creepy seduction attempt by Violet that wasn’t really a scene, per se. A mostly-played-for-laughs fumbling attempts at sex by Adilyn and Wade. A shared dream between Keith and Arlene on that Pool Table of Doom. A “hey I just met you, and this is crazy, but we used to live together, so fuck me maybe” between Hoyt and Jessica. And yes, the crown jewel of it all: the 30-second second-hand embarrassment wonder of Ginger and Eric … which … can it even be considered sex? I could be forgetting something…

For the show that had a lot of sex that was about anything but being sexy, True Blood used to make sure to include something in the mix each season that had real significance. But in the past 2 seasons, and in this one specifically, nope. 

Honestly, I couldn’t care less about full frontal scenes. I do care about the fact that Lafayette was shafted and that we are basically told that he is happy, etc., and so why bother showing it?! Much more important to give Bill interminable brooding moment. 

Sex is fine. HBO and TB has never shied away from it (though they do shy away from male full frontal, unless it’s in a grotesque setting involving someone’s life being endangered, go figure). But yes, it’s as if the show has forgotten in the recent season that sex is also supposed to be fun. At least on occasion. 

The user from youtube was the one who gave that information (James’ full frontal), and we know the guy was trolling so, I think that information was false too

You know i all i hear is Blah blah Hit Bill Blah Blah. He is dead!! Can’t you just stop slamming him. Get over it!  He was the star, best actor, and he sexy.  Eric looked terrible in veins that is why they kept Bill in them.  He is the only one who could pull it off.  This is so Fucked up! Stop with Crabid shit and look at the real problem.  Lame ass writing and betrayal of Eric fans and Bill fans.  I have tons of Eric friends who do not do this.  Please listen for once.  Everyone is sick a tired of the shit!!

Say what now?

I won’t even try to parse this nonsense of a comment for meaning. But here’s a bit of a free advice:

1. Do not tell people what to do and how to feel. It’s tacky.

2. Do not barge into a discussion that wasn’t originated by you with insulting remarks about the people participating in it. You do not come into someone’s house and take a dump in the middle of a living room because you don’t like the decor.

3. Try to differentiate between the character and the actor. If you have trouble doing so, step away and seek some help. Likewise, try to understand that there’s a world of difference between disagreeing with someone’s view and insulting the person holding that view.

5. You are not everyone. Your opinion is not now nor will it ever be shared by every single person. You can scream until you are blue in the face that Bill is sexy in veins (or without them), or that Bill was the best actor (I assume you meant Stephen Moyer?), and I guarantee you a lot of people will laugh at that. Because the notion is laughable to them. And guess what, they have every right to. Your opinion, let me reiterate this, because you don’t seem to grasp this, is not paramount and is not all-encompassing. 

6. If you can’t handle someone not appreciating your favorite, perhaps you should step away from the places where you will run against that. Which is basically any and all fandoms and the entirety of internet.

Now, regarding your request that I stop slamming Bill Compton:

And if you think that what I said in the post that so infuriated you was “slamming,” you are in for a rude awakening. This was mild. I can do a lot better and have done, in fact. Also, will continue to do so for as long as I damn well please.

Thanks for playing. 

Hmmm….most of this post had nothing to do with Bill, but rather addressed the bad writing for many of the characters.

Someone’s feeling a little touchy.

Great response!

Thank you, dear. Hugs!

And yeah, the post had barely any Bill “slamming” in it. You never know what will infuriate someone. :)

So apparently iCloud was hacked and pretty much every female celebrity’s nudes were leaked. I’d like to remind my followers not to post them, because they’re supposed to be private, and just because some asshole leaked them doesn’t mean you should make it worse by spreading them around.

Just in case you needed any more proof of why feminism is still a fucking necessity.

Go watch her play the cover HERE and tell me she isn’t fucking talented as fuck… on another video of hers, where her cleavage isn’t in plain sight, comment after comment is “where are the boobs?!” 

Reblogging to give her some proper publicity. She really is amazing at that guitar.

People wonder why I am a feminist. These guys are disgusting

straight cis men are fucking gross and extra

Anonymous inquired:

Can you elaborate a little on the "structured dialogue"? Although I can sorta guess by it's comparison with naturalistic dialogue, it's not a term I'm familiar with so I'd like to be sure.

burntlikethesun:

lmao i pulled that term out of thin air because i haven’t learnt about this kind of technical stuff in a while and needed something to describe what i meant

it’s hard to explain (not just because i’m exhausted and it’s 1:30am) but what i mean is that RTD’s dialogue- he writes it how people actually talk, and he’s written in his book about how he imagines what the character would say in the situation if they were real, and just writes that down. there’s fillers, colloquialisms, stumbling over words, the dialogue flowing naturally back and forth. characters have their own idiolects, for instance jackie tyler usually uses ‘sweetheart’ as a discourse marker when talking to rose, ten will say his infamous ‘well….’ etc. there’s a consistency which isn’t there in moffat who (like they introduced clara saying ‘oh my stars’ in TROA because her mother also used that expression… and it’s never been said ever again)

i prefer this naturalistic way of writing, to moffat’s preference on very deliberate… sort of… back-and-forth banter. like the doctor and river communicating in either one liners or trailer speak metaphors, which couldn’t really be conceived of on the spot. it just seems… rehearsed and that disengages me with the reality of the show. as a gifset maker, i’ve found moffat’s dialogue fits a lot easier into gifs when someone is making like… 9 Rory quotes or whatever, because lines are written to stand alone as snappy quotable quotes

his characters have a lot of fun punchlines and zingers, which i’m just not a fan of. i guess it’s like how some people say they don’t like ‘whedon speak’; some people just aren’t attuned to the voices of particular writers, and that’s fine! just like how i’ve seen people say they hate how rtd’s characters talk about what they’re having for dinner- i like that! i like that element of realism that isn’t really in moffat’s who, sort of… every day small talk which isn’t funny or plot relevant. it has no purpose, but that doesn’t mean that people don’t say it irl, and that’s what makes characters real to me

additionally rtd wrote in his book about how conversation is less two people talking, but rather ‘two monologues clashing’ because human beings don’t listen to each other, but rather think about what they themselves want to say. he also speaks about it a bit with charlie brooker about what makes good/bad dialogue

the wonderful quantumtardis has written about it far more eloquently than i can here, too

probably none of that made any sense to anyone but me, o well, i hope you can fathom something from it haha
