I’m going to address the two ton elephant in the fandom: the fan interpretation of Dick Grayson. So yeah, I’m basically going to say out loud what half of you are thinking and what the other half of you are ignorant of.
Dick Grayson is not an eternally happy-go-lucky, trusting, or friendly guy. There, I said it. Dick has flaws. Bring on the pitchforks, fandom, I’ll fight you to the death. I’m glad that Dick Grayson is such a popular character, but the fact that so many people characterize him wrong drives me crazy. Yes. You should love Dick Grayson. You should also make sure you’re loving Dick Grayson for the right reasons.
Hey Korra Nation! Phew. Some of you may have heard versions of this news elsewhere, but here’s the official word. After this Friday’s on-air premiere of Episode 8 “The Terror Within” at 8/7c, all remaining Book 3 episodes will move to a digital rollout. That means two things: 1) Korra is NOT…
okay this is what I want: season three felicity is in a relationship with this great guy and oliver starts acting all weird and one day felicity is just like okay oliver cut this shit out what's your problem and oliver goes "I meant it" felicity is obviously confused, what is this idiot in green leather talking about and so he smilies and goes "I meant it, I love you" and I want her to get angry a little bit at first and then cute shippy stuff. that is the ONLY way they can fix this.
Yup. Yes. Agreed.
I realize that Oliver meant it. And it kills me because oh my God he’s in love with her. But Felicity doesn’t know that. She thought it was a lie and for a second she bought it and was so happily shocked. They’ve put this couple in a position in which either they spend all of next season basically dating without dating and get together at the end or it’s game over for me. Because you can’t just say those things, clearly mean it, have one think it was a lie, and then not do anything about it.
So basically what I’m saying is this:
Oliver Queen is in love with Felicity Smoak and he knows it.
Oliver Queen is in love with Felicity Smoak and she DOESN’T know it.
Felicity Smoak is in love with Oliver Queen and they are BOTH ignoring it.
This is simultaneously the worst and best thing ever depending on how the writers play their cards. Next season will be the make or break for Olicity in my opinion and this is dangerous territory.
This is a reminder, this is not a family friendly podcast. We drop F bombs, We talk about Porn and Saga, and all kinds of things you may not be comfortable listening to with your Children or Parents, so I advise you don’t.
