spuffy_noelle: (Veronica Mars - LoVe neon)
[personal profile] spuffy_noelle


THREE DAYS. I am beyond geektastically excited at this point. I'm going to see it in the theater plus I've already pre-ordered it on iTunes for download. (Don't judge me.) In reading some of the reviews from the premiere, it seems that fans are very happy. Do we think this has anything to do with Veronica/Logan?

I've been reading a lot of fic, and a common theme in a few of them is Veronica holding a (deserved) grudge against Dick for his part in her rape. I guess I never really put it together-probably because I actually do like Dick as a character, but Veronica should hate his guts. Whether it's healthy or not to hold a grudge like that, it'd be really hard not to. Maybe I was just oblivious (could absolutely be the reason), but I didn't really see Veronica's dislike of Dick as anything more than contempt for someone she is disgusted by. Did I totally miss the boat on this one?

Uh, I thought I had more to say than that but I'm honestly exhausted and probably a little delirious.

Anyone else excited for Friday? Let's be excited together!

NO PARTICLE OF MY BODY IS READY

And yeah, that's what I got from Veronica's behaviour towards Dick, too. You could read that it's because she blames him but in the text, she actively blames Madison instead. IDEK.

Yeah you're right she holds this major grudge against Madison which is fine but should be shared with Dick. I guess the writers of the fics I've been reading are trying to make that point.

I am so excited....but I discovered I live no where reasonably near where it is playing!! The stupid local theaters are not showing it and I'd have to drive too long to see it. I am very disappointed.

But I think it's released online Friday too? At least I hope so because I can't wait!

Honestly I think there was some brushing under the carpet retcon when it comes to Dick, just because Rob Thomas liked the actor and wanted to use him more (and he apparently became a very close friend of Kristen Bell's too). He was more or less just a glorified extra in season 1 when he was setting up drugged Veronica to be raped by his little brother, then he became a loveably harmless goofball once they made him a regular and a bigger part of the show, but that is hard to square with Veronica being more or less comfortable around him, yet she is all over Madison being at fault for her rape simply because Madison unknowingly gave her the drink that Dick spiked! So I always kind of assumed that Rob Thomas retconned his character a little bit and wants the audience to forget all about his role in the rape

But yeah it's definitely not something that's ever come up in canon with Dick (didn't she trust him with her drink at one point in season 3?), so I would guess that if it's in fan fic a lot it's because many fans are annoyed by that and want to address it

Yeah I could see them wanting to keep Ryan around because he really was great as Dick. DK why they had him basically instrument Veronica's rape then...

Anyway super psyched for the movie!
