Smallville Spoiler Thoughts

Or, maybe I should've titled this "Smallville Spoilers Thoughts, coming soon..."

I've never used a filter before.  Oh, wait, thats incorrect.  I did have a filter for the 4 people I did the "Tom Welling Birthday Card Project" with.  I'm not sure that counts.

But, here's the thing....I'd like to speak openly about my thoughts on the SV spoilers.  And in doing so, I'll probably be a little ranty.  And frankly, I'm feeling a little burnt by fandom at the moment, and so I'm really not looking to provide fodder for anyone who wants to go complain about me, or my thoughts, elsewhere.  I know that seems overly sensitive for me, since I'm usually all "Damn The Torpedoes!!".  But here I am, and thats where I'm at.

So, this post is actually asking a pretty basic question...who wants to engage in some conversation, good, bad or indifferent, and who would rather be filtered?  Whether that be because of wanting to stay in a Happy Place! (which I totally endorse and understand), or whether that be because you don't feel you can refrain from taking what I say elsewhere, or whether you just aren't feeling like getting into it at the moment.

Just for clarication purposes, I'm not dropping anyone off my flist, or anything radical like that.  I'm just trying to avoid conflicts and harsh feelings, whethey they be something I inflict inadvertently on someone else, or whether I'm the recipient.

So, please chime in and let me know where you're at.

I'm open to everything you say. If I'm feeling happy that particular day and don't want to be harshed, I'll just skip the post. Don't worry. I don't have any problems with any of my friends talking their opinions out ... God knows I do it often enough. It's kinda corny, but I like being a part of my flist through thick and thin, heh. So yeah, I'm all in. *hugs*

I'm assuming you realize you don't even have to ask me, yes? ;-)

I like knowing what my friends have to say, especially we come from totally different perspectives.

So yes, keep me on the filter. :)

I think I just contradicted myself there, I mean to say don't filter me out. :p

I'm in for any and all discussion, squee, rants, glee and rages for the coming season.
Bring it on! =D

I'm up for whatever you have to say, always! Given my current situation, I might not always have time to jump in, but I'll try. Please don't filter me, if filtering is the way you decide to go.

Don't worry about me... opinions are opinions, and if I'm feeling squeeful and particularly protective of my squee, I certainly know how to hit the scroll bar. I'm certainly not going to be offended or upset by anything that you write. :-)

You know I always love to read your thoughts and I usually agree with most of what you say to the point that I don't bother to say it myself, since you articulate everything much better. So please, keep me on.

I warn you, though, that my feelings about the show right now waver between being "blah" and really negative. To put it mildly, I'm not feeling much love for it. I keep watching for Tom and because I love Superman (in spite of the disservice TPTB too often do to the character) Please, bear with me. I'm still hoping against hope that a show I used to love so much will still give me some kind of satisfaction now and then, besides the constant enjoyment on seeing Tom Welling onscreen

I'd like to think that LJ can be used as a nice and friendly way for online friends to get into a lively and informative debate but heck maybe I should take off the rose coloured glasses too..lol. So I'd love to read your opinions regarding SV and where they are taking the Superman mythology and everything regarding Tom.

Not everyone has to have the same opinion that I do. :-)

Variety is the Spice of Life (now there's a cliche for you).

I prefer people who say what they think.

Kryptonsite is a cesspool, ain't it! I may stop going there for the spoilers because some of the people who are posting seem somewhat deranged to me (and no, I'm not talking about shippers of any stripe per se, just people who see the whole show through a one dimensional filer.) But I definitely look forward to your opinion! I don't always agree and tend to be a little more optimistic, but the OD left a REALLY bad taste in my mouth.

I don't want to be filtered either. I always love reading what you think because usually, you take the words right out of my mouth.

If it's spoilers and it's not going under a cut, then I'd greatly appreciate it if you filtered me out. I try very hard to avoid spoilers.

It will be under a cut, but it will be a spoiler discussion, so just to be safe :)

I'm down for happy discussion! I am only vaguely aware of what you're talking about due to someone else on my flist, and that might not even be the same fandom burnout you're talking about, because I hang barely on the outskirts of fandom most of the time.

Put me on the filter if you make one, and if you don't filter that's cool too, either way I like chatting SV with you b/c we agree on a lot of things.

LOL, I can't promise you "happy", but I can promise you respectful, and free of disgusting character bashing. :)

Clark Kent sucks balls..Tom Welling can't act his way out of a trash bag......huh? Oh...No character bashing..sorry..

;)

I hear you about being over the fandom. I have been over it for quite some time. It's getting petty and personal between some factions, so even if I agree with one side of whatever the argument is about, I usually just keep my mouth shut. Read what is being said and move on.

Still, you know I want to hear your thoughts..Since they are almost 90% the same as mine..

OH!!!!..And, for those that don't know, I'm a big Clark Kent fan and a big Tom Welling fan...So, the beginning of this post was a joke...lol

I love to read everything, be it that I agree or disagree with it. It's fun. :)
So yes please on me not being filtered out.

I don't want to be filtered out I want to hear what you have to say about S9

You can keep me part of the conversation, if you want. I just want you to know that I won't always agree with you. I have my own definite opinions on stuff. I'm always open for discussion, and I respect your opinion, though I know we won't see eye to eye on everything.

I never have a problem with someone disagreeing with me. I do have a problem with someone running elsewhere to tell other people how much they disagree with me, so that the other people can commiserate on how much I suck.

But disagreeing with me is totally cool :)

Yay! I want in! (and I friended you back!) I don't mind the negative, it's the discussion in good faith that is important for me. And you seem to be always in good faith.

I'd rather not be filtered out. I'm not sure that I'm up for a lot of deep discussion about the show anymore though, which is kind of sad, I guess. However, I would be interested in reading your concerns.

But I am getting antsy to see Clark return and I am trying to still be hopeful for this season. So I guess I'm neither overly positive or negative these days.

I don't mind. I can't say I'll always be around to engage in conversation but if I am I would love to! Smallville is one of the few fandoms I actually take the time to discuss/rant/squee about.

I read most of your Comments around Kryptonsite and I love how intelligent and how great you are with your words.You can say I'm a fan of yours. I'm not a member there because it's a hostile environment for me but I do enjoy reading your views and others as well.I tend to agree with you 99.99 % of the time.The show has a quarter of inch of losing me as a viewer from the abysmal writing in seasons 6-8 but I hang in there for Tommy.But I kinda want season 9 to suffer in the ratings and get the axe. I hate the spoilers we have gotten so far and just want it end finally.

Well, hi there. A fan? You flatter me.

Just so you know, my journal is always a safe environment for people with one condition...just don't come here and bitch out Clark. Thats all I ask. Well, and don't bash on characters too much, with the name calling and stuff. I'm OK with criticism, and even negative feelings. So, if you want to pick a name, and join here, you are more then welcome. :)

As for SV S9, I hope it will pleasantly surprise us both.

I'd like to read anything you have to say and frankly if I don't I'll just skip it. ;-) I'm not sure about the show though. I'm still on the fence about whether I'll watch but I love reading your posts and you have great rants. So yeah.

I love any and all discussion of SV. Good, bad , rave or rant its great to see the vibe that the show creates

Don't worry. This filter is just for spoiler discussion, and I'm getting rid of it once the episodes start to air. So, its all going back to normal. This is temporary. So, I'll leave you off of that for now, and once the eps air, we'll be back to discussing :)
