And just realized on just how CLEVER Norn’s Revenge against Kenzi is…
Its not about the goo itself, nor the effect it had on Kenzi.
That’s just the start of it.
Kenzi’s most valued possession was her humanity, and through the kitsune stuff(and thus Inari and the whole kidnapping), Norn essentially caused Kenzi to despise it, despise how human, how powerless she is, to the point that Kenzi is seemingly obsessed with NOT being that, glorifying the idea of faedom as something superior. .
Kenzi came to take back Dyson’s love and Norn took from her what Kenzi valued the most. her (pride of) humanity.
This is a rant because I just can’t with certain people.
I’m gonna stop torturing myself and read the replies addressed to the official Person of Interest twitter account because those people tend to anger me. Why can’t they provide a real reason for a character to stay or go? In my opinion “she’s boring and annoying” isn’t a valid reason. Granted you only have 140 characters but you can make something better out of them.
First of all, Root is far from boring! If you can’t appreciate a complex character with drive and purpose I am very sorry for you because you’re missing out on half of the show.
Second of all, Root doesn’t “take away from the original purpose of the show” she adds to it. If you think she does take away from the purpose of the show, please you will have to come up with valid reasons and examples which doesn’t include “she’s boring”.
Finally, when you don’t have shit to say about a fucking character’s “purpose on the show” shut your fucking mouth and refrain from attacking the actor/actress who portrays said character! I’m sick and tired of seeing women of the show being put down and torn to pieces because they aren’t “hot enough” for your taste or “they suck” and so on and so forth.
You have an opinion? Good I can respect that, I don’t have to agree but I respect it but if your opinion consist of being mean to a human being who don’t even know you exist, or consist of saying said human being “should die in a fiya or sumting” (actual quote, sadly) then I call bullshit. It’s not an opinion it’s called being nasty and a bully.
On that note, I’m done.
Reblogging because this is always valid. Not just for Root, but for every single female character in this show that certain parts of fandom irrationally bash reusing same “arguments” over and over again.
