is2g do we just vaporize when comic con rolls around (x)

Watch AOS do more awesome things with Mockingbird in first few eps that she appears in than Arrow writers managed to do with Laurel Lance/Black Canary in whole fucking two seasons.

I’m gonna publish that to producers, hopefully i could get their attention….even if it can’t change thing I would like to try.

It won’t change anything, but gotta try. The way they are treating her is disgusting, both how they treat the actress and how they treat the characters

Part of me hopes they just kill her if they are not doing anythin with her, so I can finaly be done with this show and not expect anything from it.

I agree with a lot of people. You know what they say “no news is good news”! I think that Laurel’s storyline is big enough that they are going to keep it secret until it airs. They also said that everyone is going to be really happy about Laurel’s arc.

We thought that about Season 2 too.

Look how that turned out.

The new arrow trailer does absolutely nothing to make me want to return watching that trainwreck

  • Laurel still gets total of ~1sec of screentime even in trailer.
  • Mary Sue Sara is Back(why why oh why, the actress is awful, the character is awful, the voice is grating on nerves).
  • dumb felicity fanpandering(because the showrunners can’t help but abandon their artistic vision and bend over for the fandom’s favorite annoying comic-relief-turned-bland-love-interest nonsense).
  • more random stuff thrown at viewer so the season can last for ~20 episodes before it gets to the fucking point.

No thank you.

This show does not deserve Katie Cassidy.

So is there any Scydia happening any time soon on TW?

Or can I continue ignoring this sexist trainwreck of a show?

Because after the fridging last season and marysue kira introduction, I can’t find any other reason why I would ever go back to it

Snow White in TWAU is positively warm to the fierce ice age that is Snow White from Fables. She’s way too soft in the game and that was kinda disconcerting seeing as she was fundamental to the founding of Fabletown and its management for like, 300 years

Its quite clear from the game’s character development that Snow is trying to “leave” who she was behind during time of TWAU(her comment in Third Episode to Bigby on how this feels like home and asking him whether this gives him an excuse to be who he really is, which in turn is also directed at herself)

I guess somewhere in between TWAU start and Fables Issue 1 Snow facepalmed way too many times and went “fuck this shit, time to get shit done my way again

Wouldn’t it be nice to get another episodic story by Telltale which tells us that story?

Really fearful for Fables chapter 143.

As Morgana said, when it was happening in her time, she had very clear and understandable reasons to go about the way she did. It makes sense that Snow would be the same in this situation. She is not going to jump at her sister with a sword, just because she seriously seriously dislikes her right now.

Knowing who is writing this franchise, i would not be surprised if Snow will have to end up killing the returned Bigby, leading to a difference of opinions between her and Rose on how to handle Leah - Snow is yet again denied her chance of revenge by Rose, which essentially spawns the whole doom and gloom war between them.

Let’s hope a different showrunner won’t fuck up the show.

E.Andras did some VERY GREAT THINGS with both S3 and S4, when compared to far more lackluster S1 and S2.

One of many great things being valkubus

IF there ever was a TWAU episode that was too short…

It would be the last one.

In the end it felt way too much like a “promotional” material for the franchise than truly it’s part.

It had some nice bits exploring Bigby, but in the end we got absolutely no pay off for Snow White’s character and build-up.

TWAU was basically one big advert for the superior part of the franchise - the comics.

I don't get why Snow gets hate for sending Toad to the farm in TWAU. They already warned him several times and they were more than fair in giving him time to get glamour.

captainese:

1: Mass Effect, The Last of Us, The Walking Dead, and more games that’d overflow your tiny point of view have female characters that disagree with the protagonist. Where’s the hate for Tess or Carmelita? No, sir/ma’m, if you think that’s why people don’t like Snow, then you can fly off to wherever else for all I care. 

Mass Effect has pretty much no real disagreements and its the “Fuck em all” simulator of fetishes anyway.

Quite a lot of people hated the female characters of Walking Dead both in tv show and in the game.

TLOU Is overall overrated so of course it will get praised the fuck out of it.

In the end the decision is ALWAYS In your hands in those examples. Not so in TWAU.

2: Snow White is not the character, any more than Bigby, Cinderella, Frau, or Flycatcher. All of them are in a cast, but none hold the main spotlight.

Protagonists can change. Sometimes its SNow, sometimes its Bigby, sometimes Cindy. 

The main character is only one. Unless its a side-story(Like Buffkin’s mis-adventures), its always Snow.

 No, see, Snow White can be a real bitch, and somepeople, like me, don’t like her much because of it.

Oh so you do not like her because she is not timid boring good girl. That just proves my point.

Has been, will be, can be. She smothered her and Rose’s relationship because Rose wouldn’t do what she said and cement Brandish.

Good. Rose brat needs to learn that there’s no place for “compassion” or “idealism” in real world. Brandish is a scum and Snow WHite has every right to get revenge onto him in worst way possible.

Rose Red in Fables is living by wrong ideals, just like Ned Stark in Game of Thrones/ASOIAF. There’s no place for chivalry or compassion when the target of it does not understand the concept of it. 

She becomes bossy and inconsolable when people actively defy her.

Because she is the fucking boss. Of course she will re-assert her authority. That’s the basis of her character. She runs things and she tramples over the bugs who get in her way.

Do you know wether you burned the tree or not Bigby would still get reprimanded by Snow?

Only if Bigby tries to over-step the boundaries of his rights. Snow feels that either he is off the leash or that he feels like he can barter compliance with defiance. So she is re-asserting her authority of being the one in charge. Its especially important with the war looming around in town.

She yells at the nurse because she’s too fat, so she can’t be bitchy.

So she knows her privileges and is not fearful to employ them. All the while knowing how to rustle someone’s jimmies. What’s the bad deal again?

She wags her finger at Cinderella for letting a fencer, an old lady who would cement your death, an old Boxer, a living tree, a moon and Ali Baba (all of these unimportant to Fabletown and Cindy didn’t know) and then turns around and thanks her for saving her.

There’s nothing wrong with calling out the fact that Cindy DID get to chose who lives and who dies. Even if her choices SAVED these people, she essentially killed the opposite choice with her actions.

So while Snow is grateful for her continuous survival, she knows it does not speak well for Cindy AND can open new enemies for her. As snow perfectly showcases, this outcome is okay for her, but that does not mean that that outcome will be okay for Cindy.

She tries her best to cover all weaknesses and it ends up making her look silly. 

That’s just your sexism talking. Snow always stands strong when shit goes down and does not let her weaknesses get the best of her. Even with her life she built falling apart she still confronts brandish. Even with everyone trying to kill her she still cooks up a plan to get the rebelious fuckers at the farm, etc, etc, etc.

No matter what damage they dish out to her. She turns it around. She wins wars. And she is the one left standing. That’s strength.

IS what she does always right? Not really, because she’s human and certainly not a  heroic one.

That’s what makes her such a great character. 

I prefer Snow when she’s cast in a more human light. When she cries, when she acts like an actual mother than a commander, when she laughs, when she casually talks to others or sarcastically jokes or when she does everything but this silly bad-ass act.

Ignoring the sexist parts at the beginning, that’s who she is - A sword. Its not an act. Its her survival. Her will power, her intellect and her viciousness are something that allowed her to survive her enemies.

When someone hurts her, she hurts them back tenfold before the thought of crying even comes to  her mind. That’s why she is top head bitch in charge.

3: Holy shit. “No good guys in Fables?” Have you even read the comics?

Yes, idiot. Ambrose and Riding Hood are canonically the only fabletown inhabitants with no real crimes or ill intent. 

Everyone else would pretty much fit into Game of Thrones.

4: If we’re going to go with “They need to be in the Farm where everyone is safe” reel, then Flycatcher, Beauty, Buffkin and Snow should go to the Farm too.

Bufkin can’t leave for his duties. EVER.

Flycatcher is counted insignificant enough to not make a mess.

Whoever goes after Beauty has to deal with Beast and unless you are Bigby that’s not a wise idea.

Snow can really take care of herself.

Frog Bastard and Colin have absolutely no way to defend themselves. They are what one would call collateral.

The Farm is one big comfy prison. Imagine you were an intelligent being who knew a whole world outside and was confined to a small plot of land in New York. You be pissed too.

So what? Its only as bad as its inhabitants make it to be. Its still the safest and most serene place in fable community.

So what if they can’t leave? Sacrifices have to be made for the betterment of many.

Toad is poor and can’t afford to glamor all of his children and doesn’t want to live the rest of his life in a giant green prison. He’s suffering from a broken and corrupt system just like all of the other poor Fables. How the hell do you expect him to get money if he has no glamour to get a job? 

Toad is also  an opportunistic  asshole who keeps trying to swindle money of both his clients and the business office. Book of Fables also indicates that he gives fuck all about fable laws and would continue to defy the order of the current rulers anyway. Getting rid of non-compliant only benefits the system.

invested-in-your-future:

I think it boils down to few points:

  1. They can’t stand the fact that Snow, a female character, actually has more say than the supposed protagonist. Any female character that does not agree with the protagonist gets hated. That always happens.
  2. Snow’s personality is quite shocking for your average person. People have “expectations” of supporting female character, but Snow is NOT a “Supporting” character, she is the character of the franchise. People also have certain “expectations” of, well, Snow White from fairytale and Snow is intentionally the opposite of how she is usually portrayed. So when someone you expect to sing along happily, agree with everything you decide, do chores and be naive, starts handing out verbal beatdowns, holding grudges and reasserting authority and being shady, your average non-informed person will react negatively to that.
  3. Toad, at first glance looks like “good guy”(ignoring that there are no good guys in Fables). If people would have read the Book of Fables, they would understand that he does not give a fuck about laws and most of “baw I don’t have money” is actually a front to get more money.  Comic Book readers know what Farm is and why they HAVE to go there. With Colin I understand, even a comic-book reader would be conflicted, especially with knowledge an average fables reader would have. But even then, sending them away makes sense even if you want to play “Bigby who bends the rules” - getting your weaker friends as far away from conflict makes the most sense. And since Fabletown is about to get engulfed in some very nasty conflict, ironically, The Farm is the safest place for those two to be in.

Frankly I don’t care. Those who hate Snow White don’t deserve this franchise anyway and can fly off wherever else for all I care.

Jesus Christ, how about you reevaluate yourself before you tell other fans to piss off the fanbase? 

Ever try looking in the mirror? All that sexism is just leaking out.

I don’t trust this darker outfit

A ha….
AHA AHAHAHAHAHHAHAHAHAH.
…..
There’s a bout total of one character in the span of the whole storyline both comic book and the game, that is trust-worthy. A janitor with a frog hat….
Two if you count another character who is supposedly dead.
Everyone else simply has their own interests and grudges.
There are no “good guys” or “bad guys”.
There are no noble knights or idealistic heroes.
All the people of that kind died in actual conflict against Adversary, while those who survived were too busy busy to participate in it because of plotting and conspiring against each other.

Snow is on Bigby’s side(well, technically Bigby is on Snow’s side, since she is the leader). That much is clear so far.
Does she have ulterior motives for it? She always does.
Is she hiding something? they all are. Does that matter? No.
Does the situation benefit her? Sure it does.
But that does not change the fact that in this war, she is on his side.
