…How did Kalinda end up co-writing two eps in a row?
Um. Jane is right there…? She’s an option, yeah?
Makes me really look forward to S4 even more……… not
*sigh* Honestly, it was not that huge of a promo. I was out and thought it was an actual episode 1 promo. Now we’ll really have something to worry about if we don’t see her in any of the episode promos. Don’t let this kill the excitement of all the good stuff we’ve heard at comic con and the set photos.
Right? It’s one 30 second promo. So…*shrug*
Maybe if Belle didn’t have a job, or read books indoors all day, we’d see her in more promos?
Wait, why are you talking like this is on the character? Like Belle, the fictional character, said TOO BUSY AT THE LIBRARY GUYS, CAN’T DO IT? We all know the characters don’t decide shit.
Also confusing: people acting like this isn’t part of a wider pattern of Belle getting sidelined. Like, seriously? It’s not just the promo department; she gets the least amount of screen time of the regulars (and that’s no secret).
People can pretend that doesn’t matter either but, honestly, they’d be shitting themselves if their fave was being treated like this. Watch Rumple be left out of everything and there’d be constant freak-outs. Same goes for every other character with a solid fanbase, but Belle fans ever dare to get annoyed at how absurdly little space she gets and people tell us we’re wrong to be pissed. They’ll even act like it’s weird we even noticed anything was off. Is there a point to policing people that way, beyond not wanting to hear it?
Nah. There’s no point living in denial like that. I see things crystal clear, so I can’t be on board with hand-waving anything. If people say things don’t need to improve, that there’s no problem with this weird pattern of exclusion (where they give her only the bare minimum) they’ll do this crap to Belle forever. Rumple matters to me too, of course, but no way is it just about him for me when I fell for this ‘ship. Belle matters. To many viewers and the actors involved in playing out rumbelle at the very least.
Like, people can’t pretend Emilie isn’t aware that she’s not getting treated the same as the others, either, you know? It’s her job and a big part of her life. It would be strange if she didn’t notice it a long while back and I don’t want her to feel unappreciated. No one wants that.
They can do better by everyone. They can. It doesn’t actually require much effort to do so. They just haven’t bothered, and that sucks.
How many people do I have to block before Hook gifs and the like no longer show up in the Belle tags? IDK.
