Well, this is embarrassing

Left: Adrianne Palicki promo shot for NBC’s Wonder Woman.

Right: Kimberly Kane promo shot for ‘Wonder Woman XXX: An Axel Braun Parody’.

….is it just me or does the porno version outfit not only look WAY BETTER crafted and prettier, the actress also has more muscles, a nicer fitting chest piece and a waaay more fitting body type and skin tone. 

Also the porno version doesn’t look more “feminine”/more sexy whatever.

That… is EMBARASSING

the “official” one looks like a really bad Halloween costume

I mean fuck the porno one has bigger wrist cuff I REPEATE: BIGGER WRIST CUFFS PORNO WOMAN IS BETTER DRESSED TO KICK ASS *cries*

can someone contact the designer of the porno 

clearly he/she knows how a womans body works.

It’s embarrassing when the official looks a like a porn and the porn looks like the official thing.

The thing that makes me stunned the most is that even the boobs of the porn version are cupped and held in better by her clothing than those of the official thing…

The moment a porn movie treats the boobs of a woman with more subtlety than a big name production, some staff changes are in order.

What both fascinates and disturbs me the most about these is the body language and facial expression.

The “official” TV version looks passive, slightly confused, her pose is sort of ambiguous and floppy. She’s waiting for the viewer to do something before she reacts. The XXX version looks determined and fierce, and is taking literally 0% of your shit.

One of these Wonder Women looks like a sex toy, and it’s not the pornographic one.

"It’s never, never, never the woman’s fault. No man has a right to raise a hand to a woman. No means no. […] The one regret I have is we call it domestic violence as if it’s a domesticated cat. It is the most vicious form of violence there is, because not only the physical scars are left, the psychological scars that are left. This whole culture for so long has put the onus on the woman. What were you wearing? What did you say? What did you do to provoke? That is never the appropriate question."

9 seasons, 195 episodes, 80 hugs, and thousands of tears later … it all began, September 13, 2005, with two brothers.

Never quite hit me before (because I’m slow) but Dean carries Sam out at the end of the pilot, much like he did at the beginning. Now I have feelings again. 

Don't click this link; it leads to a terrible "article"

The Guardian has a piece in this month’s printed Do Something insert, and they put it online too. It purports to be about fanfic but it includes ridiculous lines like these: 

What should I write about?

One Direction, Justin Bieber, Twilight, Harry Potter … your fanfic masterpiece can be inspired by anything – as long as that thing has a large and devout following of teenage girls.

…snooty editors with their red pens are the stuff of a really boring fanfic set in the olden days.

The holy grail of the fanfic world is the major publishing deal.

The first seven words of the article are fine, but the rest of this piece is a muddled up, poorly researched mashup of insult and inaccuracy. 

Here’s the first seven words:

Fanfic works on the logic that you…. 

…can be inspired by someone else’s story, like Rosencrantz & Guildenstern were inspired by Hamlet, Bridget Jones was inspired by Pride & Prejudice, and Peter Jackson was inspired by J.R.R. Tolkien. 

…can write for fun, much like some people play football or tennis for fun. 

…shouldn’t take advice from people who don’t bother to research something before they opine on it. 

…have a lot of places online to share your fanworks these days, because the internet is awesome and vast and contains multitudes. 

What else can finish that sentence?

Fanfic works on the logic that you….

What? 

Becky Barnicoat, the writer of the piece, has responded in the Comments section:

BeckyBarnicoat

Hello all - I do see what you’re saying with this one. Piece was meant to be quite tongue in cheek, but as we’ve presented it as a ‘how to’ that could be misleading. I know fanfic is a big universe, and people do it for all sorts of reasons, inspired by a ton of different ideas. I love that it exists and as far as I’m concerned the more people that are writing stories the better. Sorry to offend!

It’s possible to write a tongue in cheek piece about writing fanfic - especially when Shakespeare In Love, which is fanfic, has been turned into a play on the London stage this season, and as Sherlock is gearing up for another run, and there was a new Bridget Jones book recently. 

But none of the other pieces in Do Something were tongue in cheek, it seemed - and The Guardian could do themselves a lot of good to actually write a real How-To on writing fanfic that isn’t filled with gibberish, stereotypes (which aren’t even semi-accurate) and exaggerations. 

Hopefully they will.

Say No to CW's Supernatual Poster Contest

euclase:

Hey followers, the CW is currently holding a contest for posters.

What’s the prize for this contest? ”Winners will receive social notoriety.”

That sounds great, right?

Actually, it’s pretty shitty. The CW is taking advantage of its fans, most of whom are not professional…

Teen Wolf Ratings are down 17% this season? http://bit.ly/1r9zChy
What are y’all watching instead?
Really. I want to understand what happened.
ADDENDUM - I should point out that I’ve heard all the theories about the disgruntled fandom. Even if every pissed off person stopped watching - it wouldn’t add up to a 17% drop. I really want to know what you’re watching at 10pm on Mondays instead of Teen Wolf.
ADDENDUM 2 (because I can’t respond to half of you directly) - I get that there is an angry fan faction. I’ll give them responsibility for about half the drop. I get that the Simpsons reruns beat the show on a US holiday Monday. There are all sorts of reasons for that too. I’m trying to get to the heart of where YOU went. What are YOU watching when you used to be watching Teen Wolf.

Oh, my sweet summer child, I really want to give you a satisfying answer because you are always so kind and precious, here and on twitter too.You already know the problems, I know you really do.And you are right, the drop is not about tumbler users’, it’s about casual viewers mostly. The big numbers are made of them, not of us.I know you know about the timeline, the plotholes (Malia and Cora, the biggest of all), the bad characters’ development, the fact that the show never addresses what’s happend in the past and the consequences that should be here, in present time (like Stiles’ possession, Allison death, Derek’s trauma, etc), that the showrunner and the writers made a point about dimissing every criticism or asked us to overlook the problems (so, so, so unprofessional, but I’m not going to add more about this subject), the useless and nonsensical romances made of bad tropes (some of them makes me shiver in disgust), the lack of any built up (Stalia in Eichen House - Jesus, that was disgusting - Dreaden), the emorrhage of the cast, the dismissal of beloved characters due to Davis’ incompetence (Boyd and Danny), the focus on new characters that a very few people cares about to the detriment on the ones we love (like Lydia and Derek’s 3-minutes screen time per episode, that’s SO STUPID), the PR debacle and the shameful use of the sterek fandom for votes, ratings, free press and good buzz about the show, just to humiliate and annihilate said fandom later, the anti-marketing campaign that followed to finally kill this portion of the fandom (really, tell me someone else who managed to censore a CHARITY project, I want to know) because they thought they could replace it with Dylan’s brand new TMR fanbase (surprise motherf**ker: movie delayed from february to september!), the buddy-buddy relationship with really problematic people within the fandom that are know haters and harrasser on twitter (and just so we are clear, I’m NOT talking about Qhuinn at ALL, in fact it’s the opposite) and all the other problems a lot of people poited out since 3A.
But instead of listening, Davis chose to mock, dismiss and ignore his own fandom, and instead of trying to fix real problems he started to write the exact opposite out of spite. He let his pride and arrogance took over, and you can see the results within the ratings.
"Fans don’t write the show". While on one hand the statement is very true, on the other hand it’s even more true that YOU DON’T WRITE AGAINST THEM.
A few examples? 
We asked for a timeline and to know the actual age of the characters, he messed up the timeline even more and moked the fan for the age request.
We asked to cover the plotholes, he said we should just overlook them all.
We pointed out how nonsensical Malia is, he said that we should get over it and that if she’s good enough for Stiles and Scott, she should be good enough for us as well (because viewers’ brain and critical sense is something you can compare with two FICTIONAL characters HE writes, of course).
We pointed out how problematic the Eichen House hook up was, and stated that we hoped they didn’t have full sex, instead of back pedal about it he confirmed the full sex scene even if it wasn’t filmed.
We called him out on all the bisexual Stiles’ hint (that he confirmed in a interview), he brought back a lesbian background character and turn her bisexual instead, and then Dylan dismissed the whole thing.
We called him out about killing too many POC and female characters, he brought Braeden back from death (against all logic, yeah, more plot holes!) just to make her a useless love interest and to warm Derek’s bed.
We called him out about Derek losing his alpha status just to make Scott shine, he took away even his werewolfiness (is that even a word?).
We called him out about Derek’s trauma, he made him completely apathetic and OOC (I still hope for double!Derek but I won’t hold my breath about it).
We loved some characters he didn’t expected, he cut their screen time or erased them from the show.
We called him about about Scott character and his development, and about the fact that Scott always took credits for other people actions and never makes choices on his own, he made him bit Liam by accidend and now he turned him into a berseker against his will (I sweat to God, Scott never took a single decision in his whole life, all he does is speak like a politician, what a waste of potential).
We loved something unexpected like Sterek, he erased every single interaction between them in the show, and between the actors outside the show (but first they milked the ship for votes and ratings and free press).
We called him out about lgbt representation and about tokenism, he introduced Mason (Danny 2.0) and erased Danny (gay quota already reached) and then he and the cast proceeded to preen about representation and how grounbreaking the show is in every interview (read this, really).
This is just a little portion, I can go on for hours, but that is not the point.The point is that even causal viewers will eventually catch up with all the problems in the show. In a more bland way, of course, but eventually they will, and this is the day.They won’t point out the problems one by one, they won’t write essays about it, they won’t tear the show apart with amazing analysis. But that doesn’t mean they won’t have a general feeling of disinterest, and when the disinterest will overcome the interest, they simply quit. As in: back to the present. Because casual viewers are not faithful and they will look the other way immediately if what’s on screen isn’t good enough, but at the end of the day what they feel is what we feel, even if it’s a duller version of it.
The fanbase is both- a sounding board (a really powerful one) but it can resonate in a positive way or in a negative oneand- a thermometer, a market survey for freeand should be used exactly like that: to measure the customers’ satisfaction and improve the services. 
MTV chose the opposite way: instead of listening, they proceeded to alienate part of the old fanbase to get rid of the unwelcomed people (as in: sterek shipper and older viewers) and to shift the audience to their ideal, younger target. But the quality of the product deteriorated, the positive buzz stopped and a negative one started, and the supposed new audience - both from TMR and MTV repositioning - never came in.In simple words: the marketing strategy failed, a good portion of old fans is long gone, there is no one here to give the show free publicity and positive buzz and to drag new people into the show. 
You ask what are we all watching instead.The answer is simple: nothing.
I watch many other tv shows, but I used to watch them alongside with Teen Wolf. It’s not a matter of this OR that.
This is not about another tv program that somehow took Teen Wolf’s place, it’s about the fact that Teen Wolf did lost his own.


I’m not angry about Teen Wolf. I just don’t care anymore, for the reasons listed above.

*sighs* I’m sticking it out, as there’s only one episode left, but I am anticipating being royally p.o.’d by the finale. SO many wasted characters and potential arcs and and and… If only there were more Bryan Fuller’s to go around. If he’d had Teen Wolf in his care… ohhhh what an interesting and wonderful show it would’ve been!

We’re almost at the end of the season? I’m not feeling it at all. It’s been really forgettable. There isn’t a single thing I’m looking to the finale for.
