The way I dress is really about the message I want to send out to the world about who I am. Growing up in Alabama, I was black. I was poor. I was assigned male at birth — that’s how I like to put it. These things defined me, but I’m not any of these things. Clothes were a way for me to announce to the world who I was. I am not any of these things. This is who I am." - Laverne Cox

Favourite Alex Vause things > holding hands with Piper.

Anon 1: I haven’t heard anything about these rumors, and I try not to let it bother me too much. Try not to freak out though, the actors have to say as little as possible and at the same time peak everybody’s interest. A bloodshed could mean anything. Knowing what massive trolls the cast can be, and what this show is, try not to read too much in to rumors. I remember last year everybody thought Sophia was gonna die, and then it was massive rumors Alex was supposed to die and then the show was rumored to be cancelled so much so that Netflix had to deny the rumors. So I’m like avoiding rumors at all costs now, because that stressed me out.

Anon 2: That completely depends what kind of shows you life, or feel like watching atm. Otherwise I’ll hurl a way too long list at you, and you will drown in the possibilities. But you should watch In The Flesh though, like yesterday.

Anon 3: I’m so sure I’ve seen it anon, but all I can find is this clip.

Anon 4: I think she’s great. It sounds like you connect her too much to That 70s Show, which isn’t weird. I never was a big watcher of that show, so she doesn’t have such a strong connection to the Donna-character for me as she likely does for you. They say that is the problem for the Friends actors, and why their careers is basically non-existent now. I love Taylor’s Piper though, like don’t even get me started I’ll wax poetic in a mini-essay for sure.

Anon 5: Aw thank you <3 It doesn’t drag me down, I think the reason I don’t ignore it completely is because the criticism is similar to what I hear in real life a lot. I overuse sarcasm and people some times initially mistake me as rude and at times mean. There are a lot more lovely people sending me nice messages, the difference is that they are rarely anon so I can answer them privately. BUT YES FUCK EM, HAVE A TOPLESS PIC OF VEE

Anon 6: I don’t disagree with you, however I think there are so many characters still that would benefit from a/more backstory so I don’t really think that problem will arise anytime soon? And oh man, I have no idea. I’ve never been good with following continuity when it comes to time, so I’m just not thinking about it all.

do you/have you watched weeds? what do you think of it?

Yes I have! That was actually how I got in to OITNB, it was being marketed as a show “from the creator of Weeds” and Weeds was one of my all time favorite shows by that point. Weeds is super funny and hella weird. I love it sm! The last couple of seasons were not as great as the rest, but it’s still way better than a lot of other shows imo. Definitely watch Weeds people :3

You are so close- minded. Why does something have to be wrong with someone if they feel differently than you? Going off on someone who doesn't like the weeds theme song is both childish, and ridiculous ( especially since the song does kinda suck). You're entitled to think its great, the same way they are entitled to think it isn't. I have noticed recently(as I'm sure everyone else has) that you're starting to post non stop hate. Did you not get enough love as a child? Just try to keep it civil.

I honestly don’t understand how you expect me to answer. This isn’t the debate-pages of your local newspaper, it’s tumblr? Obviously I don’t think there’s actually anything wrong with somebody if they don’t like the things I like. It’s a way to get a point across, just as I’m sure the anon threatening to cut off their own clitoris if they heard “You’ve got time” one more time was in fact being a little overdramatic. The point of my answer was to make it clear just exactly how much I disagreed to the point here I’m not really interested in discussing it.

Also I was very much loved as a child, I had an amazing childhood. Just saying that, since you asked the question..

Yep I agree with you completely. I often see fandoms losing their collective shit when there are like rumors of shows ending and stuff (often been there myself), but when you get those extra seasons all I can ever think off is how /sad/ it is to see your favorite shows go completely to shit. oitnb is such a masterpiece of tv-show, if it loses what makes it great it will effect the brilliance of the great parts of the show.

Yes absolutely! The worst part about loving a show and being in a fandom for a long time is the part where you end up going “nooo, what the hell is this shit”. And it is very likely that ends up happening if the show is kept artificially alive. The show’s structure is so clearly set too, that if the timeline starts requiring the inmates to get prolonged sentences and stuff it will end up feeling unauthentic. 

I fear that Larry can end up being a sort of forced narrative in season 3? Even I, an oh so great hater of Larry, can admit that Larry served a purpose to further Pipers storyline in season 1 and 2. But nobody is interested in following the blossoming new love that is Larry and Polly I hope, so why is he still a part of the show? For now it’s mostly fun to hate on Larry, but if his part of the show becomes forced it will undoubtedly effect my viewing of the show as a whole. And to some extent forced narratives is probably to be expected on the show. Most shows ends up “servicing the fans” when they end up

  1. keeping a beloved character on the show, even when their own storyline clearly dictates they should’ve died 3 seasons  ago or something
  2. repeating a storyline with essentially different characters. 
  3. IMO the biggest cardinal sin ever, ruining a character by having them do shit they would never do just to keep them interesting (I’d much rather my favorite character leave the show)

It sounds like I’m arguing for the end of the show though, which I’m definitely not!

Do you think Jenji will pull a weeds again & lower the quality each season starting at 3 or 4

You know, I kind of do? Not in the sense that I expect the show to go bad, but it has such a high standard I would understand if they couldn’t keep it up. Unpopular opinion ahead, but I’d rather they end the show on the level they are now than have it go bad like with Weeds (meaning I would be okay with the show having a run like BB for example)

i've been binge watching weeds for the past few days and let me tell you. jenji kohan is great at producing funny shows. but her 1.5min long intro songs need to fucking stop. like the songs pretty much suck. weeds is even worse than oitnb. like, it should be 20sec and good quality like friends.
