#long post for ts
It seems to me that a lot of the characters negative traits are exaggerated in riverVale but hold some truth to the characters themselves in RiverDale. Betty going to extremes when she obsesses over an idea and willing to go way too far for it. Jughead’s tendency to close off and just forget about everything when he tries to write. Archie’s obsession with following "his fathers legacy" and be the hero of the town. Veronica trying but failing to be some weird version of her father. I also think the romantic relationships have conflicts that do exist in RiderDale to some degree and will be decisive to the success or failure of those relations.
Betty and Archie being unable to communicate about a future because they only seem to hold onto the childhood version of themselves (something that Cheryl pointed out too once upon a time), it doesn’t seem they have anything in common expect childhood friendship. JT - I found interesting they found ways to include Betty twice in their fights when it wasn’t necessary and it was absolutely deliberate. Jug didn’t seem to "let go of Betty" – he was forced to and his confession was sad and resigned, not optimistic. He has carried the typewriter with him for so long because there’s still not closure (not matter how hard BAs try to make themselves believe there was) and Betty will always be his inspiration (she still hasn’t read his book, at least in RiverDale). Also, I don’t know since we truly don’t know her very well yet but I think maybe Tabitha's insecurities towards Betty and Jug's past relationship do exist in RiverDale but in the AU they are extremely amplified, we saw it back when Betty still remembered his phone password, and just the whole conversation about the drafts seemed too intentional. Plus, I think RiverDale Tabitha doesn’t seem like the type to rush into a relationship with someone that as of now doesn’t feel stable, and for me, them in RiverVale kind of gives a vision on how their life together would be if they rush that relationship to work. As for Veggie, I just think it’s pretty obvious that Reggie will always be jealous of Archie and will always be trying to compite with him. As for Tangs (?) I don’t even know what to say about them because it’s just absurd lmao
I think those things will for sure come into play again and will define a lot of decisions moving toward. I’m just interested to see what things will stay when we come back to RiverDale and how it will affect the relationships, because the town choosing to sacrifice Archie for their own self interests will probably be very interesting.
(Also, did BAs truly believed the ritual baby was gonna be a permanent feature for RiverDale lol)
I have stopped trying to understand the BA fans' logic. heh. To quote @thetaoofbetty, they keep moving the goalposts with every new episode. Shrug.
But yes to all that you said. It's becoming clear that Rivervale ship conflicts are the extreme illustrations of what ultimately doesn't work in these relationships.
I wonder why they did it, though. Not like we couldn't tell, before all these pairings happened, that they wouldn't work and why. We know why BA doesn't work. All they have in common are childhood memories. They don't even have much of a present, let alone a future.
We know why J*abitha is not a good idea. They actually do have some things in common, and they had some solid seeds of a perfectly lovely friendship. But getting into a relationship with the guy who is so obviously, so clearly not over someone else? That was doomed from the start.
Veggie's problems are also obvious and expected, everyone could see this coming.
And yeah, don't even know where to start with Tangs? Like, here are two people who have been basically siblings in all but blood, and suddenly they decide they want a romantic relationship? Which we have yet to actually see much of? They co-parent, but even that feels flimsy, because here Toni is, unable to even remember he exists when she hands Baby Anthony to Betty to raise! And neither can the audience, because he is that inconsequential in this relationship.
I guess we'll see what the big idea was in cobbling these couples together at the last moment, but I suppose, if they wanted to have true horror stories, doing this with the couples no one cares about is the way to go?
Anyway, yes to what you said.

BEYOND obsessed with this house in fort worth, texas i mean
okay pretty normal, let’s look at the interior photos—
WHAT THE FUCK
here we see the first example of a pattern that will recur throughout the house, which is that once your eyes adjust to the bonkers dictator chic marble-and-gilded-everything, you notice some pretty egregiously shoddy workmanship. look at how that baseboard intersects with the outlet. look at how the marble... uh, thing on the wall (i was gonna call it a fireplace but it’s not a fireplace, i have no idea what that is) has gaps and weird angles wherever two pieces meet. it’s like they’re trying to recreate versailles on an ikea budget
i... don’t hate the kitchen. i mean, obviously it’s ugly and #toomuch and there was zero effort made to match the very modern appliances and sink to the cabinets, but still, i’m a sucker for a pass-through and a big sink with a window above it.
this ceiling Fucks but the wrinkly, uneven curtains and terrible caulking around the faux-column in the middle anti-Fuck
why did we suddenly completely switch aesthetics. why is there an old TV set into the wall at floor level. why is there a tiny set of doors next to it. why does the fireplace look like an asset ripped from the original dark souls. i feel a sinister presence sucking at my soul the longer i look at this photo
i feel like whoever designed this monstrosity started with the dining room and then once they’d finished it realized they’d blown half their budget on just this one room. it’s so overdecorated that the gaudiness feels intentional, like it’s a statement rather than a side effect of genuine tastelessness. i can applaud that.
here we have the antithesis of the dining room. i don’t know what this room is supposed to be but i hate it. i’m pretty sure everything in this photo literally came from ikea. there is a lack of commitment here and it is rancid
ladies, gentlemen, distinguished colleagues, we have now hit the cornerstone of any great tacky real estate listing: the heart-shaped bathtub! this one gets bonus points for being next to a gilded mirror and surrounded by bright red damask wallpaper. as a bathtub i’d give it a 1/10 because those angles look incredibly uncomfortable, but as a place to shoot my lover through the heart while wearing a gauzy fur-trimmed bathrobe before fleeing with our ill-gotten fortune i’d give it a solid 11/10
here we are with the lack of commitment again. this literally looks like the kitchen in my college dorm but with a weird fringey lamp and some curtains that are absolutely too long for their windows
again, the mix of styles here is just killing me. half damask wallpaper and carved wall panels, half normal-ass bathroom? really? isn’t there anything truly unhinged left in this house? anything truly opulent, decadent, off the chain, extravagant, gaudy—
THAT’S WHAT I’M TALKING ABOUT BAY BEE!!! THAT’S MORE THE FUCK LIKE IT!!! COMMIT! TO! THE! BIT! GO BIG OR GO HOME! IF YOU’RE GONNA STICK A CEILING DOME IN THE FOYER OF YOUR SUBURBAN TEXAS HOUSE IT HAD BETTER BE TWELVE FEET IN DIAMETER AND PAINTED WITH DOZENS OF FLOWERS OR ELSE WHAT THE FUCK ARE WE EVEN DOING HERE??
and finally, to close out the show, a reminder that this entire acid trip of a real estate listing took place in an ordinary, modern single-story house in texas, one with a backyard and utility boxes on the exterior walls and neighbors who may be blissfully unaware that they live mere feet from a yawning pit of madness.
i love tacky real estate listings.

I don't have twitter and I'm seeing posts but a lot of them involve knowing what I'm looking at...can you pls explain the latest spn/Jensen news, pretty please?
Sure! Explanation of the events of the past week (some of these dates might be relative to my timezone, apologies for any errors):
JUNE 24: News breaks that Jensen Ackles and Danneel Ackles’ production company has a prequel in the works focusing on John and Mary Winchester; entire fandom displeased
Fandom ire at the prequel focusing on John and Mary momentarily overshadows the fact that it seems like Jensen Ackles has the rights to Supernatural (!!!) and has ‘five shows in the works’ of which this is only the first
Showrunner is Destiel fan-favourite Robbie Thompson, responsible for such Absolute Banger Episodes as ‘Meta Fiction’ (see more here)
A lot of blowback from absolutely all sides of the fandom - BiBros et al mad that it focuses on Not The Brothers, Destiel fans mad it focuses on Not Resolving Destiel, everyone largely mad it focuses on John Winchester (widely regarded as abusive) and the ‘epic love story’ of John/Mary (canonically forced by cupid magic)
Various cast members including Misha Collins, Jim Beaver, Jake Abel, Ruth Connell and Julie McNiven reply to the article with comments indicating they’d like to be involved
Eric Kripke tweets that Jensen and Danneel are ‘the perfect people’ to take control of this story and Jared is ‘too busy Texas Rangering’ to be involved
JUNE 25: Jared Padalecki tweets about being left out of the loop on the prequel; absolute chaos ensues
See this ask reply for a list of tweets, events and reactions
I’ll also add that this gets large enough to get coverage on Vulture, Variety and other news sources
Robbie Thompson retweets his tweet from 2019 saying ‘I ❤️ you #SPNFamily’ in response to… everything
JUNE 26: A scramble for Jensen, Jared and Eric Kripke to do PR damage control on the Jared issue. Meanwhile, Misha Collins does his best impression of this scene from the Lion King to promote GISH
Eric later deletes all tweets about the issue, which is VERY funny. Man can’t handle the heat!
Very funny contrast between Jared’s ‘have a talk, as we often do’ and Jensen’s ‘miss these talks'
Jensen later changes his twitter header and bio from Supernatural/Dean Winchester to The Boys/Soldier Boys which IS somewhat unfortunate and perhaps deliberate break-up related timing
Jared tweets that he ‘doesn’t want anyone to receive hate or threats’ which is like… Jared YOU started this, YOU tweeted this to your millions of followers
JUNE 26: Jensen Ackles does further damage control by tweeting ‘Canon? we got you’ and linking to this article about what the show might hold, which points out the Problems of John Winchester
See article for further details but this implies Jensen actually does care a lot about doing right by the fans and the narrative canon
This, combined with the fact Robbie Thompson is running it, convinces most Destiel-side fans that the show Might Be Better Than Expected and one CW-approved stepping stone to greater things
BiBros are furious because article is written by ‘known Heller’ Natalie Fisher, who is friends with writers such as Meredith Glynn and Robert Berens
Meanwhile, Steve Yockey references the ‘Steve Yockey is dead?!?’ tumblr meme on twitter in a reply to Ruth Connell
JUNE 27: Gen Padalecki posts an instagram story which may or may not be shady commentary on Jensen Ackles
However, yesterday Danneel Ackles also promotes the Padalecki MLM product on HER instagram - can I just say I simply love the use of a) product promotion and b) instagram stories as tools of warfare and diplomacy
JUNE 28: Various scripts drop thanks to the team at tumblr’s spnscripthunt (go support and fund their efforts if you can!)
Notable changed content includes Castiel telling Dean to ‘parent’ Jack in 14.16 and Castiel texting emojis to Claire in 12.16 (possibly an in-script joke about Dean being attracted to a poodle?)
JUNE 29: News breaks that Chaos Machine Productions was started as ‘Free Will Entertainment LLC’
The name was apparently changed in October 2020 - was that as a result of the 15.19-15.20 filming? Or something else?
The idea that Jensen set up a company called ‘Free Will Entertainment’ to continue telling the story of Supernatural is honestly BONKERS. A lot to unpack here to do with the textual and metatextual narrative of Supernatural that I don’t have time to get into, since there’s about twenty wild implications that could be speculated from that name alone
Stock price on ‘Jackles’ Sexy Silence’, conspiracy that Jensen didn’t like the ending of Supernatural and was quietly plotting to take the narrative under his own control, to bring Dean back to life and possibly to canonise Destiel, reaches historic high
The fact does not go unnoticed that, through coincidence or not, Jensen and Danneel registered the company on a Thursday very close to September 18, the Lazarus Rising/Castiel Anniversary Date when Dean was saved from Hell
JUNE 30: Misha Collins makes a social media post with Castiel art for the last day of Pride Month
Twitter post liked by Robbie Thompson
On his instagram, Misha also puts music on the story of ‘Can’t Help Falling In Love With You’ a song made famous by Elvis and then subsequently Destiel AU Fanfic Twist and Shout
“The song was initially written from the perspective of a woman as “Can’t Help Falling in Love with Him”, which explains the first and third line ending on “in” and “sin” rather than words rhyming with “you” - Wikipedia knowledge obtained via @jurisffiction
Falling… sin… But we don’t have time to unpack all of that-
JUNE 30: 8.17 Goodbye Stranger script excerpt surfaces with Dean’s ‘I love you’ to Castiel
Fandom has long known that the ‘I need you’ was formerly an ‘I love you’ because Jensen believed Dean saying it in that moment to Castiel was out of character - but we did not have the script to prove specific changes
Additional ‘I forgive you’ not included in the episode - the original scene reads as very romantic, since this was Dean absolving Castiel for past crimes and telling him he loves him in the moments before death, as well as ‘I love you’ of course being what ‘broke the connection’ of Naomi’s control
Notably this episode written by Robbie Thompson, the very man Jensen and Danneel chose to helm their next project
JUNE 30: Misha Collins misses his blanky text
To cap all this off, Misha Collins texts fans a selfie of himself at ‘the spare room at Jensen’s apt in Vancouver’, saying he ‘misses his blanky’, implying he has spent many nights there
It has been an open secret that Misha basically shared Jensen’s apartment in Vancouver since around 2018 due to [redacted dubiously obtained information] but it’s never been publicly stated (to be clear, this does not imply anything other than friendship, as actors in Vancouver often share accommodation and Misha had previously couch-surfed at Jared and Jensen’s places)
Cockles shippers go wild. Does the ‘blanky’ refer to Jensen? Was there a reason to send this on the last day of pride month? Will this man ever shut up?
Hope that helps! May this wild carousel of News About A Show That Ended Eight Months Ago never end!

"Jenga means: I fucked up, my name is Vax."
"This is Vex'ahlia, you can call her Vex. I'm Vax'ildan, you can call me Vax, some call me Vex."

"Should we drop De Rogna's body out of a window?" - "So I'm guessing she's not meeting us there because she's dead..."
"There was a bunch of fucking dwarves singing about what they had for breakfast, about what they had for lunch, tales of mysteries to the north. They had beautiful voices, but they just wouldn't shut the fuck up. One day we got ambushed and they all got torn apart."
"Sorry is a free action, bitch!"

shut your pie hole, harold
I was already burnt out on Jared courting conservative demos for walker, his overmarketing of his sand water, his twitter meltdown and his taxidermied chicken in the bathroom but I gotta say--that was bad. And not "cuz Destiel."
Antis will, of course, say it's about Destiel, because we know they have no convictions. They'll misgender and deadname/wrongname anyone they think is "deserving", delete comments from queer creatives and whatever else suits their agenda while retweeting AOC to blend in as civilized monkeys.
So first things first let's get out of the way that if any wincels pop up on this post to posture and try to lick their wounds about the "not about incest" comment, don't humor them, or elevate their age old homophobic dialogue to appearing legit or worth stage in the debate.
This is for the actual people with like, morals, and shit. Things they believe in. Don't just say or lipservice, but act, and do, and work through natively, as a first instinct, not a performative mask.
Jensen's response isn't innately GREAT, but it wasn't disqualifying and frankly tried to convert Jared's miscellaneous unwitting phobic rantings into something less awful without outright slapping his coworker on stage, though the facerubbing looked like he was REAL close.
But Jared? Jared that was a whole basket of fuckery. Not only did you springboard into a conversation that you are literally the last related party in (none of the related characters), or immediately sexualize the queerness of minors a mother was trying to represent--
--one mistake from a cishet man mispeaking, that's fair. Look we all fuck up, phrasing can trip the best of us. But no. He kept on. It's like he didn't know how to stop his mouth from running. Somehow, in one breath and one answer to a question not for him, he did all that, basically slapped any like trans men that haven't completed meto, disregarded the ability for queer love in asexuals, and I don't even know what the fuck else. Oh yeah, did the one thing GLAAD tells you very stringently not to do and try to conflate homosexuality to incest. I don't think that's consciously what he meant to say, but it's the base of his thought process revealed.
Sure, great. The show's not about incest. All but 2 dozen brainless child porn watching brotherfuckers already knew that. But you literally just tried to unweave the work of a gay man AND a (self-unlabeled, umbrella) queer actor THAT PLAYED IT. IT'S GAY, HAROLD.
You are literally the least qualified person in this conversation. You didn't play the reciprocating character, you didn't play the discussed character, you aren't the one talking about your gay kids, why the fuck are you rolling over Jensen?
Is Jensen's answer great, no. Like the Pristine Lustless Gays take--given, mostly springboarded from Jared's word vomit and converted outward to elevate it--aged out in like 2001. But Jensen did actually give another standard queer take here: that sexuality and romanticism (eg "lust vs love") are not themselves perfectly correlated or exclusionary. Hence you know. The sexual-romantic axis. The years of "THE GAYS JUST WANT HEDONISM" that is actually implicit in the subtext of what Jared jumped to from go made that a familiar, wide topic.
The familiar face rubbing of stress, anxiety and reservation that used to hit Jensen a lot more when he was younger and shyer but resurged again with a tick of torqued lips of either anger or distaste. Jensen wasn't happy.
Do I wish Jensen had taken a bolder stance than the idea of like sure hets if you wanna het it you can interpretations are equal, yes. Did Jensen at least frame his in queer dialogue, yes, just a few years dated compared to modern buzz.
Like it's 2021 and the gays are allowed to want love AND fuck that's fine. But one of these two was wildly phobic to like 3 parts of the queer community and broke multiple DO NOT DO of queer rules. One was slightly dated queer talking points trying to patch over it.
But like, that's it. I'm done. Oh, I even forgot to include him managing to make BLM about him somehow in the past or seeing a story about kids and cages and deciding the cops struggle was done and-- I could go on. I won't. But this? Nah, sorry. I was already distanced from him but there's a certain amount of repugnant I can tolerate in one dose and Jared vaulted past that into outer space tonight.
And J1ers will scream and say it's hate and do anything they can do to reroute the conversation without actually addressing any of the above issues, they'll try to pick out some fractal part of the structure and argue it to bits or purposefully invert queer talking points.
But it doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if you like a show, or a character, or even if you like(d) an actor. Nobody is obligated to continue following, supporting, consuming content from someone who rather than getting better and learning doubles down.
And minding the length of the list, people have given a LOT of fucking clearance already. I think it's mostly the brazen magnitude of this level of phobic cockup. Fandoms aren't abusive relationships. You aren't obligated to take that shit and keep supporting.
The fandom abusers, who coincidentally ship the abusive ship, and watch abusive porn, and who get off on abuse and homophobia when it suits them, they're irrelevant. No matter how they beat on you, you're not "less of a show fan" for not choking down phobic rhetoric with a smile.
I know people that blocked Jared for their mental health tonight. That's fair. And I want to reinforce that actually. Nobody is obligated to keep following after that because of some public illusion of fandom. TV doesn't supercede the real world.
Everyone, take care of yourselves, but You Are Valid.
Some cishet rich white dude's inability to tolerate when a conversation isn't about him--be that BLM, queerness, or a spinoff--is his problem. It's not yours. And it's definitely not your responsibility to either endure it or worse argue with the spineless, Janus-faced, nullifidians that want so desperately to be relevant in the field of debate that they reveal their native amoral default in search of gratification.
Outside the vortex of SPN fandom, where this nonsense reverberates infinitely, these talking points, these problems, are already resolved. Wincels or J1ers taking up 1992 republican debate tactics doesn't mean we have to go through it all over again. Don't lift their takes. Don't give them the time of day. Slap them with a rainbow flag if you acknowledge them at all, and don't waste your time, and energy on something or someone that is wilfully obtuse--whether that be a fan, or a celebrity.
