Quick question for you. If you don't like a ship, why would you go read stories on here that you know isn't your thing? Do you really find it necessary to talk crap to other writer's, when no one made you read their work? Are you that insecure with your own ship?
Okay, here I am again. I was just going to take the high road and keep my mouth shut and my opinions to myself. Unfortunately, I wasn't raised that way so I am just going to explain my views on the matter real quick. You can skim past this or you can read on, either way, it must be said. I don't normally ship bash. I don't swim around from site to site and from ship to ship and read stories that I know will sicken me just so I can trash talk the writer and give them my two cents regardless of whether they want it or not. Unfortunately, not everyone is like that. And since quite a few of my friends are getting bashed because they are Caryl shippers I figure it's high time I gave a little piece of my mind. I'm not deliberately trying to offend anyone but if the shoe fits...
This is for the ones who read the Caryl stories and then leave your guest reviews about how much better a couple Beth and Daryl make. If you aren't one of these people then skip what I have to say because you'll probably get mad and that isn't my intent. This is for the crap talkers, not you. Okay, we have all witnessed your argument. You argue about Beth is better than Carol because of this or that. And here is my opinion. Beth is weird. I would leave it at that but that would be a little bit "OOC" and I've decided to keep myself in character. That seems to be important around these parts. So this is Haitus80, live and uncut.
Beth spent the better part of season 2 in a self induced coma after a botched suicide attempt because she understandably couldn't take the heat. For the entire 2nd season Daryl Dixon was too busy looking for Carol's daughter, bringing her the flower, risking his life, telling her stories that would give her hope, and keeping an eye on her to even bother to bat an eyelash in Beth Greene's direction. In season two not one word was spoken between the two of them. I don't know about you but that is not really what I would call chemistry. He did get nasty a few times. I saw that. He called Carol a stupid bitch, right before that walk by the pond where he apologized to her for it.
On to season 3. Daryl Dixon spoke to Beth Greene once. He asked her to look after Carl. Other than that, he was too busy doing other things. A few of those things being, going out alone to Carol's "grave" where he put that flower, the same kind he had given her in the first season. Oh yeah, and saving her life when she was lost in the tombs... you remember, right? It happened right after he had that emotional breakdown after finding her knife in that walkers face. Yeah. Meanwhile Beth was usually pretty mute unless she was breaking out in random song. She did do a good job packing the baby around though. So there you go. We have 3 seasons down where Daryl communicated with Beth 1 time. I'm really starting to understand where you guys are coming from now! How did I not see this connection before?? Well now I just feel stupid! That was me using sarcasm for those of you that don't catch on quickly.
And finally, season 4. This is the season that gives you your ammunition. You sly devil's! In this one, Beth decides that people dying isn't an excuse to cry. I was happy about this decision because, although I think that Emily could be a decent actress if the writers would actually give her a personality, her cry is extremely loud. She's a wailer. Hey, come on! With all the nasty things you all have to say about Carol, I can be honest here! Stop getting angry. Anyway, Beth did get a hug. Or an uncomfortable arm touch, depending on how much you squint during that scene. That's point for your team. I will give it to you. And now they are out there all alone together and the ground is nearly shaking from you girls bouncing up and down in your seats squealing in anticipation. And this is where the kicker comes in. Gimple, you know, the guy that is overseeing this whole shindig at the moment, was asked about a romance between Beth and Daryl. And he looked about as sickened as I feel when I have to read the word vomit that certain Bethyl shippers, under the guise of "guest" leave on my friends stories. The writer himself, not that I am a fan, said that there will be no romance between the characters. Because... drum role please... it wouldn't make any sense for the characters. His words! Not mine!
Okay, this is fanfiction. People get ideas and they write their stories and different fandoms are filled with different people. I understand AND respect that. That's the reason I stick with my own ship. If you so happen to be one of those girls that decided to read my friends stories and proceed to talk crap about their ship, well, I do believe I just sunk yours. Really. Like... even the writer won't give you girls a glimmer of hope. And if I am wrong, which has happened before, then by all means, bash away little ladies. Bash away. But keep in mind that when you bash on Carol, talking about how she is too old and isn't pretty enough and blah blah blah, remember that Norman Reedus would probably tell every single one of you to go to hell, because Melissa McBride is actually his friend. He would most likely get the impression that shallowness and vanity is your base makeup and you probably wouldn't be very liked by the guy. Just a thought tho! That just so happens to be my opinion of you.
If this made you angry and you feel the need to go bash me and my own stories now, all I ask is that you keep your a$$ signed in. If I was going to go be rude to you and leave a crap review then I would show you the same courtesy. I wouldn't be a pansy about it. My friends would appreciate it too. If you think you have so much to prove then at least give them the chance to defend their work. And if you can't then just stay over there in your own fandom and leave people alone. It's the whole reason that most of us in this one believe that none of you are over the age of 18. It's simply childish.
Let's see. I like to write. Duh. I guess you would know that already.
Axelrocks is my muse. She's another writer on here and she keeps me company through the tough chapters. And the easy chapters. And while I'm cooking dinner. And while I'm getting myself ready to go somewhere. Okay, She's just a staple in my everyday life now. We've actually started watching t.v. together through private messaging. Yeah, it's strange but it works for us. But we aren't in a strange fanfiction relationship or anything. That would just be too weird, even for me. Haha Go read her stuff cause she's good.
Okay, I should talk about myself but I'm not sure what you would want to know. Well, I'm a conspiracy theorist. I'm totally paranoid about the Government. I like to read. I'll read anything. I got bored one time and I read a phone book. No lie. I don't sleep much and when I do it is always during the day. I have the strangest taste in music than probably anyone you will ever meet. I was born in the mountains. Well, actually I was born in a hospital but it was in the mountains so it's the same thing. But now I live in the city and I loath it. I've had the same best friend for twenty years. I grew up in a small town that reminds me of Mayberry and it was awesome. I have a dog and a cat. I have a brother and a sister.
One of the things I have realized since becoming a member of this strange world we call fanfiction is that you can't please everybody. And some of the most brutal critics are either people that have not published any stories of their own or people that have published stories that are in need of some serious editing. I will never claim to be an exceptional writer. My stories have their flaws. But I can say that no one pays me for this. You aren't charged some fee to read the stories on here. If you don't like what you're reading then go read something else, or write a better story yourself.
So, anyway, that about covers it for now. I'm sure I'll think of more to say in the future. Until then, read on!! XD
So, it's been a little bit since I started writing on here. Since February I've managed to dish out 12 stories, 10 of which are complete, and archived over 1,000,000 words. I have two WIP's and I think that after those are finished then so am I. This is the only fandom I want to write for and considering how horribly the writers have managed to mangle the characters on TWD I think I'm over it. I can't really write fanfic for a show that I don't even really care to watch anymore. I'll be too far out of the loop and there is only so much season 1,2 and 3 I can come up with. I've been super lucky though. I've met awesome people here and made some great friends!
