Was feeling left out of the tumblr #Scandal fandom. So this is me, dipping my toe into the pool.
See, the problem for you people is that it is not a made up article as you are claiming. It was written in the year 2000 and is available on the internet for anyone to find. And again, Interpol and the FBI do not deal with this, and it is not slanderous or libel if it is true, and if it caused no harm to anyone. Do your research, people!
This woman is a sick, delusional liar and is finally being exposed. Don’t continue to follow her now; you’ve already been laughingstocks for far too long.
Who is saying it is made up? These people are crazy!
Who are you brunch ladies?! I love that you show up in my mailbox every week. Yes, I needed that ginger tea. Thank you.
I absolutely still love the show. As a matter of fact, it is information I come across on my Tumblr dashboard that is more likely to get me down than anything that actually happens on the show. I am very aware if the contention going on right now in the fandom. I choose not to read many of the complaints because psychologically it impacts how you feel about the product itself: Scandal.
I treasure my experience of Scandal, and I do what I have to do to protect that experience. That means that I don’t read everything because it seeps into my psyche, subconsciously affecting how I feel about the show. I’ve been there. I know. And when you have a chorus of condemnation constantly undermining their own experience of the show, it renders people almost incapable of finding pleasure where they used to.
I must be honest—and I don’t care if I get side-eyed or unfollowed for this: I don’t support attempts by people to wage campaigns to encourage people to not watch the show b/c they are unhappy with some of the storylines. The fact is that the audience is not homogenous and there is no one direction that we all agree on. So naturally some will be happier with some storylines over others. And I find absolutely no joy in seeing ratings fall or settle into some kind of consistency. That’s MY personal belief. I hate the fact that some people are trying to high jack the show to being exactly what they want, or else they wish cancellation upon it.
I’m interested in the writers, directors and actors’ vision for the show, even if I don’t always like it. I’m here to see how the Scandal characters deal with everything that’s thrown their way. Obviously, I’m a huge #Olitz fangirl and a Fitz stan. But I am interested in characters and relationships full stop, not just romantic ones. Human behavior and motivation is the stuff of life. This show has helped me force myself into being a better thinker, to write more, and to give me more confidence in my own ideas. So yes, I love the show and I’m gonna keep loving it until I don’t. But I don’t see that happening anytime soon.
Ok, I’ll stop blathering on.
Thank you for this. Nice to read something reasonable and logical and not hate-spewing and vindictive.
Rock on KP
Your stupidity is baffling to me.
