I don't think it's spoilery to say WOW. But I can't say any more than that without going into spoilers, so I'm going behind a cut.

I know I've been quiet on here, but I've been very busy with RL. Fandom inspiration finally struck me and I wrote for the first time in ages! YOI fandom has so much inspiration laying around that some of it had to strike me eventually.

Reign: On the Closing

This post's a few days late, but it's been a really intense week+ at work (more intense last week instead of this one, at least) and I've mostly been crashing hard whenever I get at home.

Anyway, Reign! The show about Mary, Queen of Scots via CW eyes, which I fully only started watching with the intention to check out how bad it is, but ended up following closely and regularly over four seasons to its finale. (And, uh... writing the summaries on wikipedia for every single ep.)

I loved it for its cheese, its YA sensibilities, its hyperfocus on its female characters, and it was at its very best when it was being all-out ridic and only vaguely brushing against historical fact. At its worst it was a hot mess of a rage-inducing show that tried to handle too many things to the point where it effectively handled nothing well, and I could list out all the ways that they messed up season 4, but I never felt like I was wasting time while watching it. I would've wanted one more season to wrap up the storylines that were dropped, plus to give Catherine actual closure, but perhaps this is for the best, and the actors get to move on.

Four seasons is longer than I expected for this show, and I can say that for all of its problems, I would love more of this kind of fun, indulgent loose retelling of history, though I have the feeling that Reign is one-time thing, and not all comparable to its adult counterparts The White Queen or The Tudors -- stop it, articles that are recommending the latter if you like the former, THEY'RE NOT TONALLY SIMILAR AT ALL. Reign is sugary glitz, teen soap poppyness, it's Lorde's Royal as background music of a royal party, it's a contemporary of The Vampire Diaries.

I'm glad it existed and I'm glad to have watched it, and I'm sad it's over.

Also, while I was frustrated with most of season 4 (and kinda wished they dropped England and/or France entirely so to give Mary & Scotland more its due, no matter how much I love Rachel and Megan), the final two minutes genuinely moved me, which was surprising. Reign had forgotten how to take its time for emotional beats, but at least they didn't miss that one.
