I honestly can’t stop laughing.
No, this post isn’t about the what happened last night.
It’s about the shotty research that has permeated Downton over and over again.
Time and time again Julian Fellowes have proved that he will go to all lengths to write Downton as dramatic as possible with weak research and insufficient background information.
Feel free to add more.
Come to us angry American S/T shippers. Hate with the people who’ve known since October.
Let us hate JF, cry, and read AU fanfic together.
It’s much better than Downton Abbey.
JF has expressed that he would like Shirley Maclaine to come back.
If Martha is coming back, does this mean that Reed will come back too?
Because I ship Alfred and Reed too.
I watched Downton Abbey last night. It tore my heart apart, but I’m still gonna watch the rest of the series…
I think it’s a terrible coincidence for PBS to show 3x05 on the week of my birthday.
As terribly as season two was planned and developed, I think it will always be my favorite because my OTP became cannon.
All the Sybil/Tom and Matthew/Mary shippers.
I feel your pain.
I won’t be watching the Christmas Special. Can someone tell me what happens?
Is it bad that I think Dan Stevens leaving Downton is a good thing? Mostly because I’ll be saying, “Thank god it isn’t just my ship that went down in flames.”
ilovethebransons answered: SINCE WHEN IS JUST- WHAT? IS THIS TRUE?
In the new promo, it looks like Edna is pulling away from Tom (as if they just kissed) and she’s in his bedroom and he’s naked (or at least shirtless.) It is not too far off to assume she is going to pine over Tom. This is in no way right or fair.
And just a small rant. The S/T ship is a very loyal ship. To make Tom fall in love with someone else is so heartbreaking to see. Sure he needs to move on, but let’s face it. Tom isn’t real. Neither is Sybil. But for JF to think he can just say, “OH! Since I killed half your fucking OTP, I hope substituting some maid from out of the blue is going to be okay” is so wrong. In reality, it’s the shippers who are burdened with the loss. For JF to push this new ship in our face to quell our sadness is so insulting. And no, I’m not over Sybil’s death.
I understand that Tom needs to move on (if this show is going to be “realistic” *bitter chuckle*) but it’s too fucking soon.
And I think it’s pretty obvious that when Julian Fellowes writes his scripts, he doesn’t give a fuck about the fandom (mainly the S/T ship)
After seeing what the JF has done to my ship, I wish I could go back in time and tell my former self to not watch Downton Abbey. I love that I’ve made a bunch of new friends and found Allen and Jess, but shipping Sybil and Tom causes too much heartbreak.
BRB, I’m gonna sulk in the corner.
