karen, do you know of any new ideas I could use for my sci fi story? The one idea i have and its more of like, okay im pipe dreaming for a moment but lets say this story does get made and onto dvd or blu ray, perhaps this could be used for a bonus extra, but to expand upon the characters hobbies and personalities cause idk if you ever saw some of my earlier tvd/TO comments but im like how the heck are we supposed to identity with a bunch of killers and vampires?, its nearly impossible to do unless we're given insight into their minds and how they think, u know what I mean?
Maybe give them an origin story and a fictional-historic plot. For example, a universe where humans and vampires know of each other. An ancient war maybe that’s pitted both species against each other, but more human atrocities against vampires happen than vamps against humans. Something like this could give readers/viewers the incentive to feel sympathy for vampires in your universe.
I know what you mean. I was on mobile and saw the vandalizing and couldn't get to the Quick Tools quick enough lol. Thank you WHAM code XD (That was actually the first time I had to use it for vandalism and it worked perfectly!)
Anyways to answer your post from the other message, it's been good. Congratulations! Senior year flies by (at least it did for me). That's good to hear, a milestone, indeed! I'm actually done with the science classes in terms of my major, just taking a class to get letter grade to complete Master's requirement and I hope to graduate next spring too.
Congrats! I wish I was getting my masters; I still need 2 more years of school for that, lol. What are you intending to pursue outside of school once you graduate? Speaking of, we’re so close to graduation XD ! I hope it flies by; I’m taking advanced music classes and they’re already driving me nuts, lol. I’m taking a 4-semester program of music history and I’m in 3/4. Let’s just say the first day I already had 3 hours of homework, fun! XD
I completely missed this XD. Btw, I really like your new profile image. It really fits with the a.k.a. "Devil Goddess". XD
Still figuring it out, I guess. In the short term I'll probably stay with what I'm doing which is just research and then maybe move into R&D or just see if I can get a gov. job doing something similar. Right now I just want to graduate and not have "school" to think about for a while.
I'm sure it will. The fall always seems to fly by the fastest for me because that's usually when my semesters are the busiest so December and Christmas break will be here before we know it. Ugh.. I'm definitely not a history person, so more power to you. Cannot even imagine spending that much time on history XD Good Luck!! I just have a paper to write and attend class, it's pretty chill. Outside of that, I'll just be writing for my thesis.
Thank you! I felt it was time for a change after having the same profile pic of about a year XD . Also, thanks for helping me out with that user earlier. I don’t know what’s so hard about creating their own wiki vs. not and following the rules on this one.
Also, I hope school flies by this semester. Fall isn’t so quick for me, lol. Two weeks in and I already have to arrange a 4 string (meaning violins, etc.) sonata for one of my classes. I can’t wait till winter break now! XD
(: I've gotten into changing my image like once every month or two, though I'm really feeling my current one. I did notice however, that Kat has since changed her IG pic to the one of her that I'm using, though my is cropped for convenience with FANDOM XD. No worries. I wasn't sure when you'd be back on and I noticed it earlier this morning and thought I should follow it in case if it escalated. I've only been getting on FANDOM like once or twice and only really responding to message if my attention is needed or making small edits here and there. Their behavior was uncalled for and rude and considering you explained it twice, no less, they probably won't listen. But who knows, benefit of doubt and what not.
Me too. I took music classes like in HS, but nothing any further. It sounds like something I'd struggle with though XD. I wouldn't even know how to explain that tbh. So far so good for me, just have to write a short (thankfully) paper for my class while I write for my thesis, so... you know just no large amounts of free time or fun. I'll only allot like 4 hours of tv a week or something. Legacies, Charmed, Chilling Adventure of Sabrina (Netflix so I can binge), and AHS: Apocalypse. Did you ever get into the AHS series? Cut out the DC stuff and most of the 'new' stuff. probably skip over SPN unless I like how an episode sounds.
Legacies, Charmed, and maybe Supergirl (if done right and if I like the premiere) are the ones I definitely wanna watch. I might do the same with Sabrina. And I hadn’t even heard of AHS until like it’s 3rd season and I just never got around to watching the show XD . I might just watch Freakshow; that season really interested me but I never got a chance to binge-watch it.
I’m also watching this new show called Siren; I may have told you about it awhile ago, I forget, lol. It’s okay plot-wise, some romantic stuff, but they really go into the mythology of the mermaids (it’s a dark-ish history plot, which I like lol). Overall, it’s a pretty limited year for supernatural-themed shows imo. The DC heroes shows really dominated (and continue to do so) the CW for the past several years, unfortunately. And none of them interest me anymore, except DC’s Legends (especially last season).
Edit: What did you think of the Charmed premiere? I just finished it, lol. Let me know what you thought! :D
i have some fairly sad news, due to certain personal reasons, Im dropping out of the story we were writing on but I will be happy to have your help if I ever need it for another story I'm working on, next time though I'll be more prepared though and we'll communicate via email.
this is basically what I told john as he may help as well:
this is my story:
sypnosis-Judas Iscariot is let out of hell to redeem himself after satan is murdered, the whole timeline of the bible becomes dislodged and Judas must take it upon himself to find the killer and fix the timeline. He only has 1 shot and he uses his new angelic powers to fight demonkind while finding the killer.
here are the first 2 chapters I wrote for references to help u:
Judas-I am still in hell, for 2000 years I have been trapped in this hellish cage. But I deserve it. For what I did, I betrayed humanity, I betrayed my closest friend. I learned english over time, because I heard the screams of the thousands if not millions of people who ended up here, they all yelled and asked God to let them out, but he never did. He isnt a cruel god, he is a forgiving one but these people marked their fates, including myself. I deserve this, I keep telling myself this. I've lost count of how many days I have been here, Im not one of those people who marks their days over the wall with like a knife or piece of chalk. There is no reason to in my opinion. But I have learned to overcome the burning, maybe I'm the only one immune to this pain by now. Maybe there are more who are immune to the pain, I really don't know and I really don't care at this point. But I will never be immune to the mental pain, its scarring deep to the minds eye and have blinded it to the point where I don't want to imagine things anymore to make me feel better. It's just another day. Or at least it was. A rumbling from overhead hits like a nuclear bomb, yeah I know about those too, I hear alot from the people down here. But it hits and shakes and parts of hell start to crumble apart. I think to myself can this be it? Can this be the day it all ends? But again it makes no difference to me at this point cause the hellfire is just part of me now. It does nothing. But it would still be nice to have a change of atmosphere and still use my senses to feel again if the fire hasnt burned it away. But I look at a bright light above my cell and down comes....an angelic figure, I never saw the angels to be honest. But the angelic being fights off tons of satans minions, banishing them into thick darkness. He does it like its nothing. He then approaches my cell. I think to myself, what could this guy do that hasnt already been done? Make me feel even worse about myself? He then uses a form of telekinesis I suppose to break apart the cell door. He then demands I walk out. He says we need to talk.
Scene 2 I don't want to walk out at first cause this guy is a stranger to me. But he still demands I walk out and approach him. I ask who he is. Gabriel-My name is gabriel, I am an angel, and one of a dying breed, we're getting picked apart from a mysterious killer. Sighs....and we need your help. Judas-What?, my help?, I ask why? Gabriel-Because you're immune to hellfire, you can fight off demons and survive, especially when I give you these powers. Judas-Wait, what powers? Gabriel then telekinetically drags him over and puts his glowing hand on Judas's chest. Judas-Wait!, what is that?, what is it? Gabriel-Quiet!, he demands. I think to myself, I have felt burning before but not like this, this hurts 1000 times more than hellfire burning but its refreshing at the same time, cause I feel power coming into me, something I have never had, not really. Gabriel-It's done, as he releases his hand off my chest. Judas-What's done?, what was that? Gabriel-I just gave you some of my abilities, you have telekinesis which as you saw, you can move things with your mind, I gave you teleportation which allows you to travel anywhere in time and space. Telepathy which allows you to read and to an extent control the minds of any being you desire. And finally semi immortality. Judas-Semi immortality? Gabriel-Yes, you can still be destroyed by certain methods. Or you can do this job for us and ascend onto heaven. Judas-And if I say no? Gabriel-Then you will be kept in here forever but as far as I am concerned, you don't really have a choice. Judas-So what, is this my destiny?, my purpose? Gabriel-No, not really, you're just a lackie to a greater purpose. Judas-Which is what exactly? Gabriel-Okay look, the devil, the reason you haven't seen him lately, he's dead. Judas-Dead?, how is that possible? Gabriel-His body was discovered, right over there, but his body was moved by his minions. Judas-Isn't that a good thing? Gabriel-No...because it goes against what the bible planned and laid out. Satan was supposed to be stopped in the end, but not now, we don't understand what is happening. We need you to find the killer and kill them before they go any further and find satan and send him back to hell. And you'll be tracking down all of satans minions who are freed from hell because of the hole I punched. We simply do not have the resources anymore to track down these abominations. But you must find which one of them is behind this all because none of it stems from our garrison. Judas-If that is the case, why didnt you get information from those demons you slayed? Gabriel-I read their minds, they offered nothing of use. But the others might have. Judas-But how am I suppose to do all of that? Gabriel-Not our problem. Judas-Our? Gabriel-The angels and I. So you will be sent back to earth, and its changed alot. Judas-I know many things. Gabriel-Perhaps, but you will have to learn to be born again, in the true sense of the word. Gabriel then sends me to earth. Gabriel-Just so you know, money, food and even technology have all changed, you must adapt....or perish. Judas-You're not going to be of any help? Gabriel-I've helped enough, it's time for you to prove yourself. Do these 3 things for heaven and you will be greatly rewarded. Do the opposite and its back into the hellhole, and when I say sent back, I mean back into the deepest darkest loneliest parts of hell, with nothing but your troubled and regretful thoughts....forever. Judas-But... Gabriel-No more of that! One final thing, you'll need a weapon. Pick and choose. Gabriel then throws a box full of weapons to me. I look through them and see a particular one. I cannot even describe it. Gabriel calls it a gun. He says it shoots out bullets, which are blunt objects but can cut through nearly anything like a sword. I choose the gun. Gabriel says however those bullets won't work on demons. I need specific bullets. Judas-I think I know what I can use. It's the only thing besides my clothes that were thrown into hell with me. It's a few silver dollars. Gabriel then looks over and blesses them with angelic power. Gabriel-Now you are prepared, you are ready. Gabriel then walks away. Judas-Wait!, I have one condition on all of this. Gabriel-You're in no position to make your own demands. Judas-I clearly am, otherwise you wouldn't need me. Gabriel (in an angry voice)-What is it? Judas-When I find these demons, I cant just send them back to hell, they could escape, so I am going to take them out my way, I'm going to give them a second chance and wipe their minds of all the evil they've done. If I am getting a 2nd chance, so should they. Gabriel-That is an abomination and goes against everything the bible states. You're not allowed to do it, that is your first and only warning. The second you do it, you're sent back to hell. Gabriel then dissapears. Unbeknownce to him, I am going to betray yet another friend, if I can even call him that. I am going to banish the evil from these monsters and give them the 2nd chance we all deserve.
I need help creating dialogue as he is to interact with a church of people that are wishy washy on helping him, some want to, some do not. Also I need him to interact with demons and other angels too.
Mostly this will be an action packed series so let me worry about the action unless u want to help in that area as well. But I need you to help me find enough dialogue for 20 chapters, this does not need to be done all at once, take as much time as u need.
My advice on introducing the church people is thru a specific person and congregation. As a person who was raised a Christian, I experienced many people in church with a tendency to remain stubborn and closed minded, but they’re also unaware of their own closed mindedness so they are mostly decent and well mannered with other people. If you’re going for a hardcore, Christian church vibe, I recommend writing the scene as if it’s Southern/Western USA. For example: Judas lands in a rural Christian town in Texas (on Earth) and these towners have southern accents (he experiences this with both awe and confusion at the change earth has underwent). The scene could focus in on a specific southern Christian church-goer. Seeing and interacting with Judas could be thru his/her experience. Let’s call him Bobby Smith for now. Mr. Smith could be a minor character set in his ways, but also wants to help Judas save the universe and planet. This minor character could be the start of a potential human following Judas gains throughout your story. The Iscariots or something like that. That’s just one suggestion.
judas iscariot-He is the main character, the anti hero and he is looking for redemption desperately. He hates destroying things and people but will if he absolutely must. Unbeknownce to gabriel the angel, he is mind controlling the demons he finds to make an army of good demons but to gabriel, this is an abomination. He wears a welders mask, only wears long sleeved t shirts, pants, coats and carries guns and knives, bathed in holy water and his own blood. He can also channel hellfire to shoot at his victims like a grenade launcher.
gabriel the angel-He is strict in the ways of angel kind and his garrison, he's alot like castiel from supernatural, the difference is you see his wings and halo and his mighty sword he carries on his back. With what few angels left, him and his brothers and sisters go searching for satan as it was gabriels idea to use judas as their pawn. He is more powerful than he looks BTW. He is nearly indestructible, especially with his angelic armor he wears. The other angels stay in the background for now. All angelic creatures such as pixies, fairies, dwarves, elves, dragons, holy witches/superheroes, and other holy creatures derive from angels
leonardo thomas-the oldest of vampires, similar to klaus in appearance and the way he acts, except he doesnt have a vampire family but rather the biggest army of vampire minions the world has ever seen due to his power and charisma, he is older than dracula, jesus, and judas himself. Its rumored he is old as time itself. He was freed from hell when gabriel punched a hole into it, knowing he could free abominations from it he released the deadliest creature that even satan is a bit scared of.
the church goers-
melissa-she is a warrior of god, who lost her wife due to her beliefs, she is forced into this life but will not serve as a love interest for judas or the other characters
sarah-she is melissas wife who is now deceased and seen as a ghost, its rumored she might be sucked into the black hole of nothingness if hell and heaven isnt repaired soon. She is extremely powerful with her ghostly powers.
gemma-she is a very kind person and merely the gardener of the church but she may have a vicious side underneath and is ready to use it to protect herself and her family
jenna-gemmas daughter, she is 19 and wants out of the church life, she looks to her boyfriend for comfort but her boyfriend maybe a demon working for satan or a vampire working for leonardo
metacalf-he is gemmas husband, very strict in his church goeing ways and is working for the pastor ezekiel yaegar, he is the pastors right hand man
pastor ezekiel yaegar-the owner and leader of the church, he claims his mission from god is to rid the world of its abominations but isnt a racist towards humankind, he sees himself as a noah preparing for an end of the world scenario. He is very skeptical to take judas in after finding out who he really is but the other members convince him eventually to take him in.
tons of demons got out of hell when gabriel punched that hole and the cages broke, some were already on earth, their current leader is the legendary vampire alphonse de beau who is leondardos maker and might be the oldest human to ever walk the face of the planet. His very name draws fear and the vampires will take command to him over leonardo anyday. He learned some unique powers being advanced in his old age.
the rest of the demons are all reptilian or buglike in appearance, they are fallen angels and possess humans as hosts to carry out their missions, they are afraid if they expose their true selves to humankind, the humans and angels will exterminate them all as the pureblooded demons as rare as the angels nowadays. The demonkind has bred bloodsucking vampires, flesheating zombies, horrific goblins/trolls/imps, and finally, werebeasts whose very bite can bite through steel or the toughest of bones.
i hope this helps u for now. if u need to know more, let me kno
The outline is good! I like how it’s a reminder of certain shows I’ve watched over the years, but your story still has a lot of originality in it. Let me know if you wish to incorporate more species later on.
do you have a discord? and if so what is ur username?
i ask this cause i dont want our work to be stolen by someone else. But I will incorporate more ideas into their personalities and look even if we cannot bring in new fresh original ideas, it will at least be fun to make and who knows, we may even make a couple of bucks out of this or get to be the next vampire diaries to be on television cause I envision this as a tv series rather than a film series. Judas is going to be chasing down many many many demons in his path, its too many to put into a film series.
I understand. Plagiarism is a big fear of any author/aspiring author. I myself enjoy themes like yours inside books, shows, movies, etc. It will be fun collaborating with you on a Judas-theme such as your current plot!
Hi, I'm sorry to bother you, I was wondering if you could unlock the Elijah Mikaelson long enough for me to edit the quote. Along with some other pages like Hope. Please get back to me when you can much love. RBM
If you'd like to, lol! I made the name about 3 1/2 years ago, so my interest shifted on whether or not I should keep the name, lol. And thank you! I've always loved the goddess-name XD . So how've you been?? I actually have some time now to edit around the wiki this semester, lol.
Lol tbh, I'm probably going to forget. I will have to retrain myself because "Karen" just comes so natural to me. XP Lol I've updated a few things around her to reflect the name change (navigation, templates, etc.)
I know how you feel. I've had mine roughly the same length of time. who knows maybe with the TVDverse ending soon, I'll revamp myself once I move on. I do love the name though Greek and Roman mythology was always a favorite topic of mine in school.
I've been Good. Busy though. I'm practically the opposite. My semester is heavy with writing and reading so I've been semi active. I've also been contributing else where so my already little wiki time is now divided.
I hope you're doing well. Hopefully by now, since we last communicated, you've been successful in your move!?
We’re almost done moving in! We just need to unpack most of our stuff and move more furniture in once our basement is fixed up. Thankfully, we’re almost there, lol.
I have mostly music courses this semester, thankfully. I just have an Italian and an English class. I’m also able to stay on time with my shows, lol! Have you been watching Supergirl, the DC shows, or the new series Black Lightning?? I’m enjoying Black Lightning; it’s different from the other superhero shows. I’m also thinking about watching a new series airing next month, called “Siren.” That trailer/teaser looked pretty cool!
That's good new then! :) Glad it's finally coming along.
I've kept up with Supergirl. The other DC shows, I haven't really cared much about; Flash, Arrow, it's just bkg noise while I work. Though I'm excited for LoT XD I've not watched Black Lightning. With all the other superhero shows, I didn't much care to start another one. I did however watch The Gifted and Marvel's Runaways (A Hulu Original).
I've heard of it. See a few things around the Fandom about it. Seems a bit like Shadowhunters to me. Haven't decided if I'll attempt to watch it or not. I know I probably can't watch it live, unless they do it on the Freeform App.
I’m sticking with Supergirl because it’s starting to pick up a little bit for me lol, but the other DC shows are just meh to me now. The Flash has become a dumb Westallen Soap opera show and Arrow is starting to become annoying to me again with the little tiffs and disagreements between the team, especially with the rebirth of Oliver and Felicity being front and center again. It’s starting to feel like a violent version of high school to me, lol.
Lol I'm feeling the same. I'm generally likely the "worldkiller" plot, but kinda annoyed that Supergirl is losing every fight against them. I mean they were created to beat her, but.... now there are two of them and one of supergirl. Odds aren't looking good. Flash's story line as bored me since the winter finale and it's only got worse. Arrow's drama is just annoying. And the whole team break up thing they bring it up like EVERY episode since they split. They should get over it. Now they are having altercations with one another. I just can't even with them. Omg. You're totally right. They are being so childish. I doubt they will "make up" and be one team again. Smh. Team Arrow 2.0 or whatever they want to call themselves are just a bad version of the original.
Lmaoo maybe that team will be yet another Arrow spin-off/superhero show! How exciting would THAT be, am I right?! Lmaoo just being sarcastic; I’m sick of superhero shows XD . That’s why I’m looking forward to watching Siren in about a month and a half. The superhero shows are just losing it for me. Supergirl seems to be the only one worth sticking with.
Lol right!? Given their track record, it might just happen. I'm getting to that point. CW is saturated with them. I do like Legends of Tomorrow though. That and supergirl are my top favs.
It seems interesting to say the least. There's not to many shows that's tackled a "mermaid" or siren creature of that capacity. (TVD's "siren" was a joke, smh). I may give it a shot and check out a synopsis or something. It looks like it's YA or fantasy by nature, but idk what kinda audience it's gearing the show towards.
I like Legends myself; it has a supernatural yet action and science theme for me. I like that hybrid theme it has! And yeah, TVD's siren was terrible. We didn't even get to see their true form, just some creepy hand at the end of season 7 /: . Their actresses annoyed me too so that didn't help either XD .
This season, more so than the last, it has. I like it and they are finely going into more details about the African totem things which I love! I know. It's not overly sci-fy, or supernatural, or action, etc. It has a really good balance or themes and characters. Yeah. If it can even be called a true form. They should have shown it at least once, or could have done a flashback about her and seline. Sybil and the actress annoyed me. Seline, I like her actor in the other JP show containment but her TVD character was lacking in personality imo.
Edit: Oh idk if you heard but on 2-14, Midnight, Texas was OFFICIALLY RENEWED!! Lol Took them long enough.
I know right. Lol I think it was more so Nathalie Kelley though. I've had the displeasure to watch that new/reboot show she's in and it's still horrible imo.
I know right. I was hanging on to hope and twitter was floating around with things like "internal review", "meeting with key cast", "news in May"... that sorta stuff. Yeah there's some changes though. Monica is leaving for other projects so two other consulting producers are talking overs as EPs. Additinally, Creek and Rev. are no longer series regulars, but there's hope for guest appearances - Deadline cited budget cuts with the renewal, so their status is probably related to that. Or plot, if they are still following major novel points.
I love her. She was in Quantico, while I still watched it. I love mystical artifacts too, so I'm happy they are finally exploring it more.
Aww the Rev was pretty cool; he's the weretiger, right? Creek was one of the "normies" as I referred to them as, lol. However, the main witch, Lem and the hunter (Arielle Kebbel) were my 3 top favorite characters. I found Lem's vampire anatomy interesting (with the feeding process I mean; both by blood and by feeding off emotion).
Yes, he's the weretiger. Lol that's a good term for it. I like it, "Normie". Yeah in the books she leaves anyways after what happens with Connor, so her character leaving isn't really a shock to me. The Rev. was in and out of appearance all throughout the books, didn't really have a major/central role in any given story line unlike Lemuel, Manfred or Fiji (which she was the main focus of all three books, in one form or another). If they continue with where Monica left them, then Olivia should be the main focus with her issues surrounding her father. Me too. I kinda hope they explain that more, even though Xylda has apparently moved on.
Xylda moved on?! Omg nooo!! She was hilarious!! And I was neutral about Creek; she was alright but not one of my favorites on the show. I’m just glad Fiji and Lemuel are there to stay; they’re two of my favorite characters. And I enjoyed the weretiger plot; it’s a shame he’s leaving.
Omg I totally forgot, you've not caught up. I think it happens in ep 7. I don't remember. Yeah I was thinking she did it to Lemuel, so we may or may not learn much more about how it was done. Idk if Manfred actually knows it or not. Apologies for ruining it.
I believe that was the episode I have to see next. Once my schedule lessens this semester, I'll try to binge watch the rest of the first season. By any chance, has the second season been announced for when it's airing? I can't find any confirmation and/or possible articles telling the exact date yet.
Again, sorry for spoiling that. It's truly a sad episode, all around, so it will hit some feels.
Hmm. Not they've not release any additional information about when they will begin to film for the next season or when it will be released. There's been no update on ep count either, so... since it's already March, I don't look to see it in July like season one unless they continue to film as they air episodes, idk. Assuming ep count won't be any more than 13, max, if we get any additional eps (probably 10 again) given "budget cuts". So right now everything is practically up in the air.
Don't worry about it; I kind of suspected certain things to happen anyway XD .
Aw, I hope it gets a season two. The show deserves to be continued! There's not too many supernatural shows lasting anymore that are good. I'm still disappointed that WOEE never got a third season and I'm waiting for the day a good witch shows comes on tv. I'm actually a bit excited for this supposed Charmed reboot the CW is planning to do. I wonder if they'll have both Prue and the other sister (can't think of her name right now, lol) on the show somehow? I'm looking forward to attempting to watch the reboot.
Midnight is confirmed for a season two. I believe they will start filming in march. A few other shows I follow are listed under production weekly are to start in march but it's one of those things where you have to purchase the info, so I assume, Midnight is listed there because the timing is all the same. idk for sure though.
I'm not. I love Charmed but I think they are killing it with this reboot. Everything I've read about it is really just turning me away from it.
I’ll have to catch up with season one; Ill try doing that once my spring break come along, lol.
And I haven’t read much about what to expect from the Charmed reboot. However, it may be the only true witch show to catch my interest on the CW now that TO is ending. Lol, what do you think about this supposed Hope Diaries spinoff?
Whoops kinda missed this. Were you able to catch up?
They've not really released much. Fans seem to either hate or love it. While I love the thought to having a reboot (Charmed in general) I don't think I'm a fan of the other stuff, but given the lack of witch-y-ness, I may check out, at least the premiere.
Ehh. Atm, I'm indifferent. Given 13 previous season... why not watch another spin-off. I would like to have a large enough time jump to have Bonnie's child(ren) present and old enough to do something, but then again, they'd probably screw that up too. What about you?
I’ll probably catch up with MTX this weekend. I’m also trying to catch up on all of my other shows, lol.
And I might as well watch the Hope spinoff if it goes to Pilot/airs. I’ve watched TVD/TO to their entirety already. I might as well watch a second spinoff of the show.
I’m also iffy about the Charmed reboot myself. I just have a feeling the series will spiral out of control and the quality will just decrease from season 3 on if it were to last that long, especially if TVD/TO’s writers get their hands on the reboot.
I spent the weekend catching up on The Magicians XD Are you all caught up or nah? No worries. What other shows are you watching now? Supergirl returned last night. Was an okay-ish episode I guess.
Right?! Lol. I mean as conflicted as I am about it, I honestly don't see them picking it up. So many of the cast members are moving on, seems like it wouldn't even be the same. Idk, the plot would have to be better, I'm over this Hogwarts ripoff.
I do not think it will last that long. But it if did, it probably would tell a completely different story by then. I mean they can't tell the exact same story.
I still have to watch a lot of shows, lol. I’ll probably be watching Supergirl tomorrow night being tonight’s the premiere of TO, finally! And I saw a user post something about a similar plot about a witch named Hope, who lives in NOLA, and the show would be about witches. Sounds very Hope-esque whether it’s intentional or not, but I might give it a try, lol. I’m actually caught up on that show Siren I told you about a little while ago and it’s an interesting plot, but still reverts to the same old love triangle relationship-issue, *yawn*. Lol I don’t think Hope Diaries would last too long either. Most fans and cast members are done with the TVD/TO universe, lol.
I've been trying to catch up on all of mine. So far, mostly caught up --Shadowhunters, OUAT, Magicians. Just need to get to a few others. I think I know which one you're talking about, though the name escapes him. Magic and NOLA, seems like it. I may watch it, if it's about witches. We shall see. I think it's a pilot though, for the fall. Can't remember if it's been ordered or not, but we'll probably hear about it next month during upfronts or whatever the networks are doing.
Ugh. Everything literally revolves around a love triangle now, doesn't it. Like come on, is that all they teach in script development and writing? Smh. For an ABC (or was it FreeForm ... Idk)? network show, it looked alright, wasn't really enough to gain my attention though.
I'd be shocked if they got a pick up but would be very doubtful if they got a second season renewal. I'm not banking on it though. Like you said the cast have been doing this for 8+ seasons depending on the series, they want to move on so they'd have to bring in new characters and plots and move away from the same old storylines.
I actually just caught up with TO. School delayed me again, lol. The plot is getting somewhat better for me, but Roman’s continued involvement is going to put a damper on things if they keep having him show up for no apparent reason other than to speak to Hope, lol.
Also, you were right, the returning episode of Supergirl (the one breaking its hiatus) was okay. I found Winn’s backstory interesting, but not enough for a copycat story when it gave more of chance for some Kara and Mon-El drama, ugh.
There’s not many shows on that I’m watching lately mostly because the ones I start just don’t keep my interest and attention. I do however enjoy watching Siren. There is love drama but not what one would call a love triangle. It brings in the U.S. military who hunt the Sirens on the show and creates a X-Files sort of conspiracy on the show for the non-main characters, lol.
That seems to be about it with him. That and he's probably related to the 'big-bad' of the season.
Ugh their dram is annoying me. Like I get 'drama' is a must on a CW show. I have to say I like the backstory for Winn. I think they would have done it a little more before his mother showed up, but I liked the dynamic. J'onn's father though.... depressing and sad, but the development has been good.
Hm. Interesting. Maybe if it gets picked up for a S2 I'll give it a shot. I'm busy with other shows atm, so maybe I'll watch it over the summer or something, if I get bored.
Siren is currently my favorite show, even over Supergirl. I’m behind on two episodes of Supergirl being its getting so ‘meh’ for me, at the moment.
I wonder if they’re going to pull a Haylijah-development-thing by killing Mon-El’s wife off (can’t spell her name, lol) and have them get back together again. I can see the shipper craze now! Ugh, CW even becomes repetitive in their storylines and their development too, lol.
Also, I’m actually surprised Legacies made it! I like to remain enthusiastic about the upcoming spinoff, but if history has taught us anything between this universe and the writers of it, it can just all go downhill from the first and/or second seasons if it makes it that far.
I saw the user you blocked after they removed an image on the Josie Saltzman page and I took some time to click on their new Legacies wiki. Would something like this be considered copyright or something being this page is clearly a copy of our Hope Mikaelson page? I believe most of their wiki pages are sort of copies of our own wiki.
I can relate. I think the break really took the wind out of it. Upfront's scheduling though, supergirl will now be on Sundays in the fall... idk how that's going to work out.
She's from the future, so (minor spoiler alert) well I guess it's expected? -- she leaves. XD
I don't even know how. Like I guess, the CW or JP knows something that fans don't. Maybe they are factoring in something else other than ratings? Idk.... it's a shocker for sure, especially over Wayward Sisters. Also did you see the Charmed trailer?
Seems like there's a lot of that going around... smh. If they fail to attribute TVD, then it's a breech of ToU. I've already contacted a user here for their fanon cite, where another user was c/p work. The user graciously apologized and made it clear to the user on their community to source the info. Alternatively, another user, here with already an extensive record was c/p 'large quantities of work refused to attribute so I requested staff to get involved. That's --on going atm. This is what a Staff member said, in part, "While the site license (CC-BY-SA) does allow content to be copied, the source of that information should be mentioned."
If it continues, without attribution, then a message should be left on their wall here. I've removed their right to comment on their wall, so that can be changed, but if they ignore the request, then staff will have to get involved.
I actually saw the reboot Charmed trailer about 2 weeks ago. I don’t know whether to be excited or disappointed. I’m more in between, leaning towards excitement..I guess? I’m just so used to the original show, I honestly don’t know how to feel about it right now, lol.
Also, I’m getting tired of even Supergirl now. Flash is such a bore to me already and don’t even get me started with the crybabies on Arrow, lol. DC’s Legends is really the only DC show I still enjoy watching. I tried watching Black Lightning for a few episodes, but I just couldn’t keep up with the amount of other shows I still had to catch up with while it was still airing. Black Lightning was pretty cool though, but DC’s Legends is the best for me so far.
And I’m not even sure how to feel about Legacies, but I feel like it’ll cater to younger audiences, like my siblings’ ages (14-18). So it might feel too young for me, but I’ll still give it a shot, lol.
You sound like me. I mean I feel like it's too soon for a reboot because I still remember and watch the original Charmed and this trailer would probably appeal to me much more if I had no idea about the original. I mean, it looks cool, the cast looks pretty good, (the oldest sister reminds me of Parisa Fitz-Henley). It's just this nagging thing in the back of my mind that they are still deviating from the original. I mean they're jumping with the half sister in ep 1 and the youngest doesn't even have premonition. And their names don't start with 'P'.
Legends is still good and they're getting into magic; plus Constantine is joining, so that will be great!! Bored with Flash and the crybabies on Arrow. I've been missing Supergirl episodes but eh, it's whatever at this point. I feel like the over saturation of "superhero" shows is losing it for me.
I don't even know why JP wants to continue. She doesn't even want to write decent supernatural plots --probably just going to be a ship-fest or some other nonsense about this silly magic show. Lol same. We've been brain washed into continuing. XD (I'll do it for the witches; if there's any left by then).
I hope there’s witches on Legacies! And not just Hopey-Dopey’s and the twins’ versions of being a witch; I want to see a witch evolve like Bonnie (no one can surpass Bonnie, I just want another witch, period, lol).
Also, I’m liking Constantine’s involvement. He’s an interesting character and he reminds me of a comedic version of a serious character from the Exocist, lol. Constantine can spice things up a bit for the rest of the characters and plots on DC’s Legends. I just hope there’s no dumb, future love triangle in the future with Sara, Constantine and Ava. That would ruin it for me then.
I’m still behind on Supergirl, like 3 episodes-worth. It’s just not as interesting for me to watch anymore as it was back in season one/half of 2. I hope next season will bring me back to my positive feelings of Supergirl (the show).
It feels like I’m closing the superheroes phase of my movie/show-life. I’m sick of Arrow, Agents of SHIELD, and Supergirl may just add to that list if I feel the same after catching up with it this remaining season, lol.
I'm sure we'll see some. Probably not many considering three of the main characters are "witches" which continues to baffle me because Julie doesn't want to write supernatural plots and come S8 TVD and S5 TO didn't want too use magic (hence why Bonnie was kept depowered and in the S5 comic con interviews she said she was going to only do like 1 spell an episode, if they even used magic, etc.) It will be interesting to say the least how she writes the plot(s).
I love Constantine's character! He brings a new vibe to Legends. I so hope so. They've been pretty good about not making it all about relationships, so hopefully they continue that trend. lol
I'm like 3 or 4 behind, but went ahead and watched the finale (also a few bits from the episode prior). Wasn't bad, but didn't really do it for me as a viewer. Have you seen the finale, or waiting to catch up?
I gave up on SHIELD ages ago, probably won't get back into it. Arrow, is just background noise and the next season looks like trash imo. Flash is a bore to me now as well, especially with so many dang reruns and nothing 'good' on in the summer.
I’m debating whether or not to finished Supergirl still. It’s drama is now reminiscent of high school, ugh. I may get back to watching Black Lightning or Lucifer, but I’m not sure yet. I have so many shows to still catch up on, lol.
And good thing TO is ending too. The storyline this season is killing me. Of all topics to choose, they’re gonna go with Nazi vampires for the finale? I can’t believe how disappointed I am with the final season this year.
SHIELD is just another show at this point. Nothing productive is going to come out of it at this stage of the game, imo. The rest of the other shows (DC) are starting to bore me too. Supergirl included, unfortunately.
I’m still debating whether or not on watching the Charmed reboot. I might watch the Pilot and see if I want to continue watching the show, but I have a bad feeling it’s not going to “wow” me. Same goes for Legacies; it’ll probably be just another “meh” show for me, but I’ll watch it for the sake of the TVD/TO’s universe being one of my first long-lasting supernatural show(s).
I missed like 3 episodes or so of Supergirl, but watched the finale. Apparently a couple characters are leaving and a couple others are changing up what they're doing/job on the show so the dynamic will be different going into the new season. Idk if I'll continue it or not. I feel like I've lost interest in it.
I agree. I thought S4 was bad, and that S5 couldn't be worse, but surprise... it is. I mean they have less good points than TVD final season. I mean they haven't even done anything that's really peaked my interest with the witches. Although I like Ivy and they've 'killed' her off or worse, turned her into a vampire.
I doubt I'll ever get back into shield unless something ridiculous major happens to draw me back. I have other marvel shows to keep me interested. The only real DC show that I'm excited for is Legends. The others, repeated storylines with different shows/characters. Such a bore and a waste. Arrow and their repeated crap, over and over, and over. I don't see how it's still on the air.
I'll watch it for the sake of it being a witch show and see if they can even properly attribute the original. I loved charmed so it better be good, because the fans that actually will give it a shoot will hold it to a much higher standard. The only 'wow' factor I'm expecting is the effects, which the originals had, but given the timeframe, should be much better this day in age. Same. I'll watch it because why not. I sat through 8 seasons of TVD and 5 seasons of TO, there will probably only be one or two for Legacies, so I can do that much at least lol.
