This is why I download before buying

Dear J.T. Krul, and every other writer who has been part of thankfully ending train-wreck that is Green Arrow and Black Canary,

Please stop treating Dinah like a one trick pony whose only ability is her Canary Cry. I direct you to the early BoP issues where she DIDN'T have the cry, and was still, amazingly enough, a awesomely badass hero. Hell, I even direct you to the wedding issue, where Dinah STABBED OLLIE IN THE NECK when he attacked her, instead of standing there crying and getting beaten.

Accomplished street fighters do not lose slapping matches to guys who shoot trick arrows. Dinah fucking Lance doesn't stand around sobbing while her undead (redead?) husband smacks her. She stabs him in the neck with his own arrow. Because she's awesome.

No love,
-Crook

P.S. I'm fairly certain that, not too long ago, Mia said that Connor already knew about Ollie leaving his mother. If your going to retcon something, retcon deadbeat!Ollie entirely out of existence, please.



(all of my entries here so far have been wanking posts. I need something happy to post about, dammit!)

Two Things

1) The stupid Olympic "I Believe" song is starting to get on my nerves. It was a nice song the first 4 or 5 times I heard it. The 457 times after that, not so much. I'm beginning to feel some horrible sort of conditioning set it. Soon, every time I hear that song I might be compelled to punch someone in the face out of annoyance. Or go skiing. My knowledge of Pavlov is very limited.

I also feel bad for all the people who bought it on itunes (according to CTV, it was the number one download in Canada the day it came out). I don't know how much you people paid, but you can hear it for free EVERY FREAKING DAY!

2) I enjoy that dreamwidth doesn't use the words "friends" anywhere. It makes me feel less pathetic and anti-social becuase I don't have any. Having no subscriptions and groups? Far less depressing than having no friends.
