    Yeah, it does follow a trajectory.

    But ours was all Ginni's fault:
    See - I hate to say it, but MBTV just hasn't been thrilling me like it
    used to, and I miss that. I miss all the snark. It has kinda just
    lowered itself to Pacey-lovin'. Not that there's anything wrong with
    that, but I totally fear that we're turning into FF but with better
    grammar, reasoning, spelling and capitalization. And in some cases,
    not even that.

    So - in the vain hope that we've not completely lost people like Miss
    Alli, Kisle and the like, I want to go back, smackdown these newbies,
    and show 'em just who they're aspiring to be. Because once upon a
    time, there were people who did want to be in our exclusive club, and
    instead of getting them up to par, the doors just kinda opened and we
    let all sorts of crap flow in. SR (rhino-hide girl) and TP - I'm
    lookin' at you!

    See - I love all you bitches, and I want to be able to go there and
    laugh solidly for an hour or so, just like I used to. Now I go, and
    there's 400 black arrows, and so many of the posts are just utter
    shite that I just skim them looking for familiar names.

    SO - in summary (jeez - just get to the fuckin' point already!), I'm
    strappin' on my rhino-hide boots (once I've flayed rhino-hide girl
    that is) and kicking some newbie/annoying arse this weekend. The
    bloodier the better.

    Who's with me?
    Ophy is the voice of reason:
    I must agree that I only visit MBTV infrequently now instead of
    living there 24/7. And I rarely post because -- well, what's the
    point?

    And I feel bad for poor Sars -- she's not even a paceyite and her
    beloved board is now all about that. It's no wonder she doesn't post
    much there herself anymore.

    But honestly -- don't you think it's too late now to fix what is
    broken? It's a little like closing the barn door after all your
    horses done get out, as my grandad would say.

    But, that said- a coup would be a helluva good time.

    Me, being self-aggrandizing, as usual:
    See, I think the biggest problem is the goo. I hate to say it but
    Pacey Love must be mocked. It should stick to the Goo thread and a
    little in the fic threads. Other than that? SNARK must rule. I'm
    tired of all these "good things about this character/show" shit!
    This show is not good. And these people don't know what snark is. I
    know. I was there when it was born.

    I skip over posts now. I NEVER SKIPPED A POST BEFORE! Part of the
    problem is that we've all gone underground - ranches and IMing. I
    love that shit but we've been on vacation so long claim jumpers have
    taken over our beloved homestead. I'm in. I'm so IN.

    diesel puts her hate of Dawson over her love of Pacey:
    WTF does that even MEAN anyway? I never considered myself a "PJer" either,
    until I started going to FF. I mean, hey, I liked season 3 Pacey and Joey,
    but my main concern is that Pacey isn't shafted for that loser Dawson. If it
    weren't for Dawson, I couldn't give a shit whether Pacey and Joey are 2getha
    4eva, you know? Ick.

    --d.
    Linda will help:
    Unfortunately I'm too new, and I don't post regularly enough, or you
    can be sure I would wade in to rid the board of it's horrible "taking
    the show seriously" disease.
    diesel agrees with me:
    Agreed about the goo. The goo must go. (or, as you said, it must remain
    in the goo thread or on the fic board, where of course, Pacey goo will
    continue to reign supreme as long as these cool babes continue to supply
    us with the fic). I like Pacey a LOT, but please, for the love of god,
    can we stop drooling collectiveyl, as a board, about him? Jebus.

    I do think that PART of the problem is that there haven't been any new
    eps in six weeks. I mean, we don't have anything new to snark about, so
    people start making filler posts, and that's no good. Like "What song
    would you have?" BLAH. I hate (almost) all the music on Dawson's Creek
    (yeah, they did play Elvis Costello the ONE time), so I really don't
    give a shit what piece of crap they choose for the graduation song,
    because it is going to SUCK, just like everything else about the show
    SUCKS. Once new shows start we will have PLENTY to snark about.

    But I think the biggest problem is that 1) the boards have been horking
    and partially as a result 2) we have taken it underground. I give you
    all my snark directly at the ranches or through IM, so it's kind of hard
    to have any left over for the boards, especially when they are so
    fugging hard to get into. BLAH.

    Still, I'm all for smackdown en masse.

    Itís just really honestly so tiring and emotionally draining to have to get upset over reality constantly.

      diesel must have briefly forgotten that she adored both characters.

        I love how I got to be The Voice of Reason twice! Kind of wish there was an award for that.

        Ah, good times.

          "What song would you have?" GROSS. I must've blocked out just how gooey it got.

            Pretty much the whole thing gets side-tracked by hate for poor StaceyRosie!

            Kath replies once and then replies a second time:

            Oh, and FUCK stacey hosey indeed! You KNOW my feelings about her.
            Kath was on the Stacey Hate Train VERY early. Seriously, some of the earliest emails reference it! Ha!

            Ophy was not amused by Browwen's ass-kissing:

            did you see AWG's attempt at asskissing?

            "Very glad to see this thread, Sars. And you even named it after a
            Dylan song!"
            AWG was our evil nickname for her "Acid Wash Grandma"! Neo was HORRIFIED by her in person.

            Linda's amazing response to a VERY long point-by-point assessment of Sars' Hard Rain post:
            I'm not exactly a regular at MBTV. It took me about 6 months to
            reach Neilson Family status (and days later they changed it to Video
            Archivist. Grr, but I digress) but I always loved reading the
            boards. When I first "found" MBTV it took me a while to start
            posting because there seemed to be so many in-jokes. I thought one
            of the problems with the boards recently is that they have become too
            newbie friendly. But obviously more posters means happy Sars, so
            we'll just have to exchange quality for quantity. That makes me sad.

            I loved reading posts by Miss Alli, Ginni and Is. I thought LaaLaa
            and Fox were terrific (I was stunned and scared when I found out they
            were still in high school. They are so much more intelligent and
            articulate than me. Bitches). I thought Frozen Ripple was
            insane/bitter/angry. I remember when Neo and Manos took the boards
            by storm seemingly simaltaneously. I remember when Herman changed
            from slightly odd, crazed Josh fan to hilarious MBTV icon. I
            remember my thrill at finding out diesel was ksdc at FF, which helped
            to ease my FF posting shame. I remember the excitement when Laura
            Smith started posing at MBTV. I remember making my "breakthrough"
            with Neo on a long forgotten thread when I enquired about her (lack
            of) sleeping habits. I remember my shock (and delight) at winning a
            prize in the slugline competetion .... Happy days.

            I could go on ... but I'll stop because I'm embarrased.

            Now MBTV has turned into an orgy of Josh loving, and shipper
            supporting. Which is fine, only there are other places I could go
            for that. And I don't think Sars really has the time to police the
            boards so much now. I noticed that Dims signed a post ... and Sars
            replied to her post without saying anything. Back in the days, she'd
            have edited that. I think what I'm saying is that the "old" MBTV has
            gone. But I think I'll start posting more. And I'll ignore all the
            grammar corrections, and I'll ignore all the stupid posts I don't
            like. So I'll be ignoring a lot.

            Just for the record, I never though SR really fitted in at MBTV.
            Having spoken to her just once on AIM, I feel I am qualified to say
            she is tedium personified.

            Stupid ol' lazy eyed bitch.
            I hope StaceyRosie doesn't lurk here anymore! Bwah! Seriously, no hard feels, Stace! Bygones.

            I'm also pretty sure Linda is accusing neo of being Manos, too. Linda thought Neo was everybody!

            Linda quickly sent a second email:
            Well, that was gushing and overly sentimental and it didn't really
            make sense ... but I am taking a lot of flu medicine just now. So I
            am excused.

              I secretly thought Neo = Manos for a very long time, too. Then I met Neo in person, and I decided that she wasn't Manos. But I thought Manos was EVERYBODY. Like, famous people. Or Monica Keena. For a very looooong time, I thought she was Monica Keena.

                Neo had me CONVINCED that Manos was Big Red from Bring It On.

                  I don't know how I got sucked in to the DC Survivor boards today, but I don't think I have ever read them before.

                  The fandom board part is the best. Please tell me who was doing this awesome Bronwen impersonation:

                  I have such a long commute to work and I hear all this DC music all the time. It just breaks my heart and I have to pull over in an effort not to weep for my poor Pacey.

                  I woke my sixteen year old daughter up this morning at the stroke of midnight so that we might light a birthday candle on the cupcake cake I made for our precious Joshua Jackson in honour of his birthday. We giggled like schoolgirls over the fact that our sweet boy is now one year older and one step closer to the career that is truly waiting for him beyond the creek and this Witch Island madness.

                  We giggled dreaming of a life for Pacey where he is truly appreciated for the fine piece of toned young man that he has the potential to be. We got so loud I was afraid we'd wake up my husband and sons!

                  We're rooting for you Pacey. You don't have to win this thing to prove you are the better man. We love you just the way you are. Just come home to us in one piece and give MamaJo a big, loving kiss. You can put it anywhere you want it. :winks:

                        Actual Bronwen post from MBTV in spring 2001:

                        Bronwen
                        Video Archivist
                        posted April 28,2001 00:58:11 AM EST profile email
                        --------------------------------------------------------------------------------

                        You know how Sars wants to become Mrs. Tom Frost and live in a little
                        cottage with him where she would cook him meals and bear him little
                        Frostlings? She can't really explain why. Tom Frost is not classically
                        good-looking, he's a bit pudgy and has a hint of a double chin, and he
                        sometimes does things she finds annoying or even offensive. Yet, there's
                        still that certain something...

                        Well, that's how I feel about Pacey. My inner 17-year-old wants to have
                        Pacey buy me a wall, count to 10 before kissing me, and tell me he
                        remembers everything as he dances with me at the prom. Why? I can't
                        really explain it, but I think it's because that would have been far
                        better than what really happened in my teen years. I suspect that is
                        true for most people. No matter what drek or drivel the writers put in
                        the mouth of Pacey Witter, he'll always be the boy who sat by the fire
                        outside Aunt Gwen's and poured his heart out to Joey Potter. From that
                        moment on, Pacey had me for the taking.
                        I mean, I get her sentiment but it's just so over the top.

                        Linda replied:
                        You realise that Bronwen is the Jerry D of MBTV. Bronwen AWG.

                        How scary. I bet her daughter's boyfriends refuse to go round to her
                        house.

                        Ugh.
                        Neo continued to be horrified:

                        Just be glad you didn't stay to meet her. That's all I'm saying.

                        The woman drove back out to the Witterschloss BY HERSELF after she
                        had been there TWICE with us. I guess she wanted some *private time*
                        to stare in at the magic couch.

                            I still have access to the Scarlet J group, too. I just started looking at the folder full of html files of the MBTV Pilgrimage Thread. Bronwen, shockingly, is full of inappropriate advice and more personal info on the cast than your average hired hitman would be.

                            IMHO, the only proper greeting for any DC cast member is that time-honored Capeside salutation, "Hey."
                            Ugh, she really was our Jerry D.

                                Aaaaand the laughter fades to a "euuuugh!" God, she is the creepiest! Even Jerry D was sometimes self-aware.
