I HAVE POSTED A THING.

Let's not talk about how long it has been since I posted fic, ok? But here is my first Killjoys fic:

 

We don't measure the blood we've drawn

He has nothing to do but wait for Fancy Lee to wake up.
Gen, post 1x10
 

Apart from Killjoys stuff I've been writing terrible Emmerdale drawerfic in my head, so just be glad I've posted something half-sensible.

I have also posted an ad on fivenights.com, but it hasn't been moderated yet. However if anyone's looking for a room to rent Mon-Fri in London, check out the Greenwich listings on the website from next week :D I am renting my spare room out to fund a trip to Japan which will be taking place next year. \o/ \o/ \o/ SUPER exciting but also very expensive.   This entry was originally posted at http://hestia8.dreamwidth.org/70428.html.

OH GOD well of course it is Aaron/Robert (I hate the way Robron sounds, lol) because I am a cliche. But it's just basically angst angst angst, everyone's life is horrible, hence why it is never getting posted because the show is doing just fine on that front (there was a gifset on Tumblr basically showing how much they apologise to each other for stuff, haha).

Tumblr Emmerdale fandom does not seem to know how soaps work, or maybe it's just that fannish thing of thinking fandom is more significant than it is because you're inside it? Idk. Apart from gifsets I've not really found much there, although I find this with most tumblr fandom, because I am grouchy and old.

HOWEVER while I'm here, let's talk about Emmerdale. I mostly email a friend who doesn't even watch it, lololol. I am surprised to find that I actually hate Lawrence WAY more than I hate Robert; he's fricking awful and I can't stand him.

I also find Holly very annoying and I am not remotely here for whatever Holly/Cain thing is going to happen. I desperately hope that when she makes a move he just refuses her and then tells Moira, but I somehow doubt that will happen. :/

Gabby is awful. Lachlan is also awful but thankfully he's not been featured overmuch recently. Emma is THE WORST and I don't really care about her whole family (Finn is ok). Everyone else is...watchable, I guess? At least. The dementia stuff is getting pretty upsetting. The Rhona/Pierce stuff is just bizarre.

I can't think what else has made a big impact recently, haha. What do you think about it atm?

Really? God, I just hate Robert more than I've ever hated anyone. He's just so smug, and they pretend he's charming when he really isn't, and they pretend he's clever when he really isn't, just so he can have plots, and he literally just does it out of selfishness, like at least Lawrence has a character and a backstory and what he does sort of makes sense. I genuinely, like even on a meta/understand the writing level, hate Robert. And as a result I just can't get into Aaron/Robert at all, like I can't understand why Aaron would look at him. It genuinely almost makes me not want to watch the show.

To be honest, I think the whole show is having writing problems at the minute, and I don't know why. Maybe because they're about to change to a new director? Like, I also hate Emma, but them having her be crazy and manipulative one minute - and then suddenly self-aware and guilty the next day, I just find really bizarre. But she's never self-aware enough to stop being crazy and manipulative, and if she's meant to be crazy and really suffering with it, they never explore mental health in any way? So it's just a bunch of half-measures, so they can never really have fun or be meaningful with anything. It just feels like they're writing a lot of scenes rather than storylines at the minute, and I don't know why.

But it's still my show, and I love it. At the moment I love Ross, and Charity (Charity/Ross forever), and Tracy, and Laurel and Ashley and Nicola and Jimmy always knock it out of the park. And oh god, I love Vanessa, I really loved her and Kirin, I hope they find something for her to do again now that he's gone. All of these people make things a joy to behold. I wish I could just watch a show where they all survived on an island together.

Excuse typos, I am doing this on my tablet.

I have been trying to think of a way to answer why and it is because of how he reacts when things don't go his way, because of how he just won't deal with things except when he tries to pay people off and because I think he's just as selfish and as impulsive as Robert, really (like getting Andy beaten up, like this whole thing with Chrissie's biological dad - maybe for once her feelings are more important? She's an adult FFS, stop trying to control her decisions). If Lawrence and Robert actually worked together for evil everyone would be screwed - their plans would be terrible but they would be destructive, haha.

IDK, with Robert the second anything bad happens everyone goes 'was this you??' (for valid reasons!) and I feel like by now Lawrence should be under the same suspicion from his family at least.

Also in Robert's defence, at the time he was being accused of having Gordon killed (before anyone even knew the cause of death), Cain had just kidnapped a dude on very little evidence (OMG everyone in this show is so impulsive! Think before you act, people!), which was admittedly funny but also a bit hypocritical. Robert hasn't kidnapped anyone for ages (j/k, sort of).

Well, Aaron has probably made about three good choices in his entire life, so I think he has form here. The constant break up/make up is getting tiresome though (seriously! Again??).

Yeah I think that could be it - things do seem to be a bit all over the place. I never buy Emma being self aware or even really loving her family - she just wants them closer to control/have as props.

Oh yes, I like Tracy! Charity/Ross is pretty good, especially web they attempt to do crime. Vanessa needs a plot, you're right there - Kirin was awful (continuing the theme of not dealing with stuff, fucking Rakesh not making him take some sodding responsibility). I really like Nicola and Jimmy atm too.

He didn't actually get Andy beaten up though - as far as I can tell, he really did hire the dudes to warn him, and then things got physical without him knowing. I know he genuinely is an arse, but I just don't think it's the same as say, Robert hiring a hitman to kill Chas. And given Lawrence's history - being arrested for being gay, and then everything that happened to him in prison and because of that - I kind of understand him wanting to keep control over things, even if I don't like it. Whereas Robert just seems to have no empathy and want money. He creeps me out. Which I guess is the problem - I just don't really believe he feels anything for anyone besides himself, and he's been really consistent as a kind of sociopath, as far as I could tell, so now I don't understand if they're trying to handwave it? Or pretend it isn't true? I just don't know what to make of any of his character, anymore.

Charity and Ross are amazing though. The heist they did of the jewellery shop was one of my favourite moments in recent months. I want them to get married and heist forever.

Fair point - it has been a few weeks so I got the details wrong. I have been on the Emmerdale wiki a lot recently, lol. I don't retain this stuff very well. He did try to pay Andy off after admitting to it though so he wouldn't tell Chrissie - he's so determined to control her, it's really creepy (similar to Emma really). Idk, I get his history but he just drives me MAD because he gets away with it. Whereas everyone (onscreen) knows Robert is a dodgy piece of work and generally reacts accordingly.

Well I think they probably are trying to handwave it in the soap way because it's not directly plot relevant at this moment in time. I think it will probably be on the back burner until he's properly split up with Aaron, whenever that is.

Oh the jewellery shop heist was great! They really should get back together. Is that on the cards?

They really should get back together. Is that on the cards?

In an interview Michael Parr said they might sleep together again 'just to annoy Cain', which sounds like the BEST WAY they could possibly get back together. But at the moment they're keeping her obsessed with Cain, and calling him her soulmate despite that one time he tried to smother her with a pillow, so possibly not, sadly. It's a shame, because I think they'd make a great couple - they suit each other way more than Charity and Cain, or Ross and Debbie.

Haha, that would be great and should totally happen (apologies for the lateness of this reply).

Everyone is Emmerdale is so messed up, it's amazing.
