You know what I’m really happy about this last episode?
I’m really happy that Hoechlin got the opportunity to play something a little different and show he’s really good and he just need more opportunity to show his talent! Because I feel he’s really under appreciated sometimes and that makes me sad.
Fuck guys please season 3 is not even over yet, please tag your spoilers for season 4!
I love Teen Wolf, I really really do (it’s my favorite show airing right now) but I have no fucking idea what this episode was about and what was the point of have of the things that happened. I felt like we took a real step backward in term of quality (story wise, not acting wise) and it felt really like it was going in every direction and barely keeping it together.
Plus I’m pretty pissed there was no Isaac (yeah okay I know I’m not objective about that) and even more so that we barely saw Derek at all in 3B and I just really love Hoechlin and I wanna see him more.
It’s not really fully formed yet, but I want to see if people are even a little bit interested before I start taking the time to kind of gather things together for it.
So, at Days of the Wolf, there was a couple instances of different actors confessing to having days where they wake up and wonder what it is they’re doing - which is, I think just part of the human condition. But they’d also say things like “this is why I do what I do” after hearing stories from fans, or, in Crystal’s case, talking about the scrap book one incredibly sweet fan gave her and it made me start to think.
I feel like, a lot of the time, it’s very easy to assume that actors in shows we love understand how much their characters mean to us by virtue of the amount of attention we pay to them. And maybe that’s true sometimes. But on that same token, it’s easy to forget that they often times don’t get to see the areas of fandom that we see every day.
And I’m sure a lot of us have felt the desire to share with them just how profoundly or deeply their work has helped us through things in our lives, no matter how big or how small, but a lot of times conventions aren’t really the best environment for that sort of sharing to take place.
So, inspired by the scrapbooks I’ve seen being put together, and various appreciation projects I’ve seen floating around - I’m wondering if like….
Would people be interested in maybe trying to compile a book of letters (or other various mediums, I don’t want to force people to write if they don’t want to) to the actors or, even just to the show itself to say things as simple as “hey, this helped me through something” or “hey, I’ve learned about myself through this” or…you know, just any sort of story that may not be the easiest to say into the microphone at a convention but might still be something you’d like them to know.
There’s a lot of negativity floating around the fandom lately about shipping and what not, and I’m not going to dismiss any of it, but…I don’t know, I think it would be a really nice thing to do?
It’d obviously be a really big project and I’m only at a very nebulous stage with it right now, but I want to get some feed back.
What do you guys think? Does anyone have any interest in this sort of thing at all?
