About the poster, the funniest thing is, if you look at the ladies, their waists look as thick as Stephen's, which is hilarious, since they should be smaller, even if they were the same width, because they are standing further back?
Stephen’s whole body looks weird. All the guys look weird. They should have just had the promo poster be Laurel and Felicity, they look fucking fabulous.
like i don't understand how people can have a problem with the poster not being the "original team" or whatever when clearly the problem is how tiny roy looks? like if it's supposed to be perspective then how come digg is still relatively tall? what happened there like we get that roy is supposed to be younger but that doesn't mean he's shorter than all of them
Well, mainly, Roy looks tiny because, um, he is… Like, Colton Haynes is 5”9, in comparison to Stephen who is 6”1 and David who is a whopping 6”3, so…
It looks funny because he’s so much smaller, but he really just is so much smaller…
I think they probably could have balanced that out by switching Diggle and Roy around…
It's amazing to me that tumblr has an issue with the placement of people in the Arrow poster when the whole thing in general is underwhelming. I guess I was just expecting more when they pushed the release back a week. They used the photoshoot from last year which is super annoying. Other CW shows had huge new shoots a few weeks ago. It bugs me that this seems half assed. And where are Willa and Barrowman?!
So, from what I understood, there’s going to be a second poster. This one is about the Extended Team Arrow, so I’m gonna guess the next one will probably have the villains? I don’t know.
And yeah, if anyone’s interested, legit my ONLY beef with the poster is the shit graphic design but it’s the CW so I didn’t really expect anything else??
#well now i just want a fic #where the two of them just finally go #fuck this shit #and hijack it straight out of starling to cruise the bahamas #Laurel x Thea #YES #they could have been sisters-in-law #fuck
What do you mean “could have been”, Rosie? Embrace the idea of “could still be”. I mean, Tommy’s coming back, right? Right?! Because Lazarus Pit? And then he and Laurel could get back together and then Laurel could marry Thea’s brother (even if it’s not the brother everybody assumed for so long that it would be) and — hey, presto — sisters-in-law!
(Please excuse my excessive punctuation and feels-flailing. I’m having a weird day.)
i’m just gonna pretend this is how it’s all gonna go down
is that what people are pissing about? i’m so glad i rarely go wade in the tags—i follow enough people i can avoid the crap. but considering the fact it’s a POSTER maybe we should wait for some, i don’t know, scenes before we make judgements? maybe?
i don’t even go in the tags, it’s just i follow some people who follow other people who i do NOT follow for a REASON so stuff trickles on to my dash anyway and just - UGH.
That was actually how I found out about it via Twitter. Just people complaining. Like, ugh, didn’t even give me a chance to go see it positively first.
i saw it a few times with really positive feedback until i came across a reblog of one with an obnoxious comment about team arrow and just-
If you ever wondered why I GISH, it’s because GISHWHES is about kindness and love as much as it is about randomness and insanity. It’s because GISHWHES is about putting a bright spot in the lives of people who may be in very dark times. It’s because they practice what they preach, and you should, too.
It’s because I found a group of people who love and support each other from around the world, despite the fact that there’s a very good chance we will never see each other in person.
So thank you GISHWHES, for being there for me and for the people I love. I know you hear all the time about the lives you’ve changed, but mine is one of them, and I’m so grateful.
This 'Olicityplease' twitter account you sometimes retweet spends her time on twitter and tumblr spreading hate on Katie Cassidy and Laurel Lance, I just thought I'd mention it.
I don’t know if this is true or not but I will be checking it out to be sure.
I’m also taking this opportunity for a soapbox.
TO ALL SHIPPERS WHO SPREAD HATE FOR CHARACTERS WHO THREATEN YOUR SHIPS: shut the fuck up. Stop it. Now. The entire point of a shipping is LOVE, so stop with the HATE! Some of you will get your ships. Some won’t. Regardless, it’s just horrible to be so horrible to actors and characters others may root for. You get pissed when people hate on your ship characters! Don’t you think others feel the same? Whether you think they’re wrong or not, being hateful is a horrible way to be. So please. Stop it now.
