CAN WE HAVE NOTHING? YOUR DEMON ASS SON KILLED ABBIE’S FAMILY AND YOU WANNA INSULT THEIR MEMORIES BY LIGHTING A DAMN CANDLE EVERY DAY TO MOURN JEREMY?
SHE IS SO FOUL
Damn it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You’re right.
How I imagined this scene from Sleepy Hollow 1x06- The Sin Eater
if you don’t like abbie mills you don’t like the show
this show would not work without nicole beharie playing abbie
I second that
I wonder if they are going to show more of Ichabod using the internet.. Imagine he’s on there cause someone sent a video he thinks contains pertinent information for a mission, starts watching it and then all of a sudden when it seems like it’s the most important part
Sleepy Hollow | Bloopers vs. Actual Scene
just so you know what is going on in my country right now:
- votes came in for independence 45% yes 55% no
- media very “”no”” centred and bias
- unionists are now attacking yes voters
- a seventeen year old girl has been stabbed
- they are burning our saltire giving nazi salutes
- our first minister resigns
please signal boost this
They only like Jenny because 1) she’s not a threat to their shitty ship, and 2) they found out that Katia and Lyndie are roommates. They didn’t have shit to say positive about Jenny/Lyndie during season 1.
And she light-skinnededed with “good hair” thanks to her white daddy, but I’m sleep.
I love Jenny/Lyndie and pitting one black girl against another is gross in and of itself, but if you can honestly say that Abbie is not an interesting character then you’re bullshitting and I need you to get your god damn life together. I just need people to stop using Jenny as a scapegoat excuse to show how they’re ‘not racist’.
#WhiteFeminism It’s one of THREE DAMN SHOWS on with a black female lead and of course, white fangirls have to shit over it. Fuck their jealousy and entitlement. Of course, they like Jenny Abbie is too dark for them.
i definitely suspect that part of it is because lyndie’s “acceptable black” to them.
Seriously? A character who was in ONE episode is more developed than Abbie? Are you fucking kidding me?
anyway, i dropped a mean girl quote and they replied:
I assume this is meant to put me down, but now I’m really curious about the relation between back hair and TV shows.
Anyway, what I think is, Abbie is just a mixture of the traits associated with her identities, as is Ichabod (noble Sherlockian gentleman fish-out-of-water). Jenny, however, overcame her initial portrayal as a bitter I-was-right-all-along person, and we discovered that she was in fact quite level-headed, badass without being cliché, sort of a paranormal investigator and freedom fighter, plus Lyndie Greenwood is just a much better actor than Nicole.
So I stand by what I said.
y’all, i went AWF (though not as much as i could have considering that i didn’t address their obvious dislike for nicole). this isn’t very articulate, but:
it means i think your comment’s myopic and i didn’t feel like exhausting myself, but sure why not…it’s not like i was gonna actually work out today anyway.
abbie’s a mixture of traits associated with her identities and jenny isn’t a “mixture of traits associated with her identities”? because what you just described about jenny are definitely traits and not at all what makes her interesting.
abbie being a “black police female cop” isn’t what makes her interesting inside the context of the series. “black female cop protagonist” isn’t exactly a new or interesting characterisation for black women—there have been black female characters in “tough” roles because that’s all black women are ever allowed to be portrayed as. abbie’s character could have gone stereotypical pretty quickly had she not had other layers to her. what makes her more interesting than her description are other factors like her fear and her vulnerability.
i could say the same that jenny’s only interesting because she’s a “black female freedom fighter and paranormal investigator”…like we haven’t had freedom fighters and paranormal investigators in fiction who overcame their bitterness and were right and level-headed all along? both jenny and abbie satisfy certain tropes, which are subverted by the fact that they’re both black and female—but that’s in a societal framework (i.e. how black female characters are typically represented in media).
the exploration of both characters’ stories and personalities is what adds multidimensionality to their characters, not their occupations or the tropes they satisfy.
in the actual story, things that make abbie interesting:
