Oh, the ~delicate sensibilities~ of Castle fans! In this thread at castletv.net, people were finally admitting that they're not in love with Alexis. A huge step for the fandom, heh. I was overjoyed to find this, and jumped in to joke that I wouldn't care if the character got eaten by a bear. Ok, I didn't expect everyone to LOL, but I did expect that such an over-the-top statement would be taken as a joke . . . yeah, no. Several comments followed along the lines of "omigosh that is so harsh! D:"
BUT YOU WOULDN'T KNOW IT TO LOOK AT THE THREAD. Because my flippancy, and their snowflake-y outrage has all been deleted from the thread. *Beckett eyeroll*
Later, in that same thread, the Beckett love gets out of control. Someone mentions loving Beckett the way Firefly fans love Mal. Fair enough. Then several others jump in to say that, no, they love Beckett more. Obvs.
I was a bit miffed, because, look, Browncoats are insane. Our love knows no boundaries. But besides that, it's ridiculous to try to compare different people's levels of affections, even if one group has been around for years, and is insane. :)
So I jumped in to joke around again, saying "OH NO YOU DIDN'T! Nobody loves anybody more than I love Mal!!! :-P" Surely everyone would recognize such a silly statement + tongue-pokey as a JOKE, right? Right?
. . . nope.
All of a sudden it's all serious, and hey we shouldn't go around fighting about these things.
OH I FUCKING GIVE UP. Honestly, I'm disturbed by just how miffed I actually was by their ascertation, but I responded with humor, which is more than any of them have done. Like, EVER. Their ever-so-earnest sensibilities are anathema to me! LOL
And then in this thread, that old blind item is invoked . . . someone says: "And I totally thought it was a lie becasue for one, Nathan would never speak to anyone, especially a woman, the way he supposedly did. Two, no woman in their right mind and with self-respect would still want to work with a man who called her such horrible names."
So, it's a lie, because . . . someone you've never met would never use a word you disapproved of? OKAY.
And no woman would work with someone who used such a word?
I just can't get this one scene from the movie Serial Mom out of my head, where she says "l have never even said the "P" word out loud... let alone written it down. No woman would."
NO WOMAN WOULD! *nods* And then I imagine how horrified these people would be by John Waters' sense of humor and I LOLOLOLOLOLOL!
