i can’t believe rise was so promoted by nick at the first half of season 1 to the point that they had their own fucking SPLATFEST but once that new stupidass president came along it just got thrown in the trash
I understand Draxum became a better person(?) towards the end of the series (which I’m sure his redemption arc would’ve been much longer if Nick hadn’t decided to fuck Rise over smh), but I’m glad they wouldn’t have had the boys all call him “dad.”
He had no hand in raising them, he isn’t biologically related to them (which I’m not saying he would have to be for them to consider him a father), and he tried to kill them several times.
I’m not saying you can’t write or draw or think of him as their dad, I’m just explaining my view in canon.
And B/ronJitsu (I don’t want this in the tag lmao) in canon also just didn’t seem possible imo. I totally understand shippers like it and you’re all totally valid (I find the art cute myself, I just don’t actively ship it), just the way Baron treated Splints even during his redemption arc (and literally intruded on his and Mikey’s bonding day just to be an ass) doesn’t seem like “lovers” material to me.
Again!!! You guys can ship whatever you want!! This is just my take on it not being canon.
Anyway, thank you to Russ for these replies! It cleared some things up.
JESUS I KNOW IT WASNT THEIR FAUL BUT THEY SHOULDNT HAVE KILLED KARAI SHE HAD LIKE 5 MINUTES OF SCREEN TIME
All right. So some of the Rise writers came forwards with information on Rise.
They planned three seasons of build up for that finale.
Normally you get 11-12 weeks for one script. They were told to cut 13 and write four finale episodes with 6 weeks on the clock.
We would have gotten some episodes like:
-Donnie tries to grow a giant pumpkin.
-Ghostbear has a wedding to a new yokai. Raph and Mikey crash it.
-Giant robot dinos that Mikey thinks are cute appear (”boopable snoots” is used).
-Mikey is left the oldest brother when the other three get turned into toddlers.
-The Foot Clan runs a cupcake store.
-Karai remains as some of the main cast for a GOOD while.
And more. You can check Russ Carney’s Twitter for the actual tweets.
If you want to see these. If you liked the show. Please support Rise. Send requests to Netflix for it, search for it in Netflix to ding their system, use Twitter and all of the support Rise hashtags. Tomorrow at 6 pm est I believe we are going to try and get Rise trending.
Be polite to Nick, email them (firstname.lastname@example.org), but we can’t let them ignore this fandom until we fade away.
That team was incredible. Don’t let it end here.
Nick told the crew the show was on “pause.” The initial vibe was “wait-and-see-after-the-movie.” That’s not a no. Glitch Techs did this move. Invader Zim did this move.
