I’m putting this under a read more cause it’s gonna be kinda long, but the idea’s been bugging me for a bit so here we go…
Roz’s Totally Legit Theory That TVD is Actually A Mass Hallucination created by Mental Hospital Patients with Personality Disorders
if only the writers put this much thought into their work
what a show we’d have
Totally not derailing, cause I agree. I don’t think they did this on purpose at all. And that’s the scariest part! That this illustration was unintentional, BUT ITS STILL THERE.
i do think it implies that our system of entertainment and what we believe is appropriate for children, is seriously fucked up. How could something that could be this twisted, qualifies as a
kidsyoung adult show?
MISS ME WITH THAT FIRST GIF THO
but yeah idk man. since the genre is supernatural, horror-fantasy, sci/fi shit, i think it’s supposed to be a bit questionable? but the way the writers go about romanticizing the shit is gross and side-eye worthy
And this always ends up being my crux with TVD. If it was just gritty and in-your face and didn’t try to make excuses and OBVIOUSLY try to okay the behaviors of their characters by devaluing the victims time and time again, i could be so here for TVD. I love fucked up characters and creepy stories and villains, but TVD characters aren’t “villianous” there’s just kinda pathetic and rash. Not cute.
To clarify, I was basically a mild Delena shipper (I know, le gasp) up until joining tumblr. It was the way I saw so many people in the Delena fandom, young girls in particular, idealize the relationship, instead of seeing it for the thrilling, but destructive, combination it is, that turned me off. I even feel myself doing the same with some of the questionable things that pop up in Bamon fiction. (I’m looking specifically at some of those seriously fucked up fics that I don’t even want to get into details about)
I feel like the very fact that I would rather the series say “it was all in your head” the quintessential jumping of the shark, versus all this bullshit is legit, says a lot about the characterization, at least in my opinion.
