Lot of dire news coming out of BiteCon. Looks like S4 will continue the slide into the garbage can.
There’s two new writers, and one of them (Eric I believe?) is actually really thoughtful and eloquent and VERY promising. Derek’s arc for S4 is his. I AM SEEING A LIGHT.
(Also chatted with Arden about it and she said it was “no less intense” but also a “definite break” from the psychological trauma of S3. She also said she finally got to film with the girls and that MOST of her scenes are lady-to-lady. Praise.)
[LIGHTING A CANDLE FOR ERIC]
[PLEASE DO US RIGHT ERIC]
He said when he first got the job the thing he most wanted to do was write about either Cora (filling in her story) or Allison (because he liked her) so I mean, this guy. I think this guy knows what we need.
We’re counting on you, Eric the new writer.
So I keep seeing everyone getting super stoked about SIRENS and their lovely asexual character, so I thought I’d just add a few other things that make the show perfect
- One of the lady EMTs (Stats) has OCD and it isn’t treated as a joke, she is included in all the group events, and isn’t dehumanized for comedy
- Hank is an openly gay black man, who is wholly respected, and not biphobic like a lot of gay male characters can be. (He’s my favorite ok he’s legit a freaking angel)
- Johnny is your run of the mill heterosexual main character in the beginning who is obsessed with Sex but then isn’t ashamed of his need for emotional attachment in a relationship.
- Brian (ie The Twinkiest Twink to ever Twink) is a complete noob who has moments of ignorance, realizes his mistake, learns from them, and makes sure to do better the next time. His naivety is used to hold everyone else to higher standards.
- Theresa, Johnny’s ex, is a successful cop who has bisexual tendencies and a vibrant sex life, and isn’t shamed for it.
- The cast is balanced evenly between men and women
- Cash is a godfearing christian who isn’t a mockery or homophobe in anyway
- Even race representation
- Asexual EMT Lady (Voodoo) badass
- Great platonic relationships for all the characters, seriously, all of them
And the comedy is brilliantly written
so give SIRENS a try
Can’t we all just respect eachother regardless of gender/race/sex/sexuality
Please don’t fight fire with fire, it just causes more fire.

I kept all the names & twitter handles of all the people who spoiled shit for me. And guess what, there’s two more books coming out. So you fuckers can expect a tweet from me in about the next 2 to 3 years. I can read fast (x)
Got bored & decided to get out one of my ratty wigs and put on some makeup. I wish I had the time/skill to cosplay.
