My sister and I are having a slight disagreement about the news that Christine Booth has been recast.
It’s mainly a convenience thing, but if I can work out how to make my personal blog the primary one on my account then I will leave Brenchcoats there if people want :)
I stand by my decision to delete my blog but everyone’s responses literally made me cry. I’m spending the evening backing up my posts and listening to Rascal Flatt’s “What Hurts The Most” on repeat because this feels like a breakup.
Also - last chance to follow my other blog whatiseyre.tumblr.com before Brenchcoats dies. It’s a bit all over the place but I’m careful with tagging!
I haven’t really made this clear on Tumblr because I don’t want to stir up drama, but I should probably say that I stopped watching Bones after the wedding. There are a whole bunch of reasons for this:
- The show really isn’t the same Bones I got addicted to, and for the past couple of seasons I’ve only been watching it out of habit and obligation.
- Some of the things that they do annoy me so much that it compromises my love of the show as a whole, which is not a feeling I enjoy. (See: the recurring storyline of Brennan being a Rational Robot who needs to be taught how to Feelings.)
- The cases are frustratingly predictable and, with only a few exceptions, show zero respect for human life the way they used to.
- I don’t care how irrational it is - I’m mad that they replaced the Hartman twins, and I always will be. Scroll through my blog for five minutes and you’ll see how much I love Susie.
The wedding was perfect, and made me remember how much I used to love the show, and I cried and it was amazing. So it seemed like a good time to end on a high note.
Obviously the implication here is that my blog no longer serves any real purpose. It kind of hasn’t for a while. I won’t delete it just yet because I still love lurking on Tumblr and chatting to all the people I follow, but I’m going to phase it out. If anyone’s interested I have a personal blog (whatiseyre.tumblr.com) that I will keep running, and I’ll probably start reblogging archival Bones stuff to there. Apart from that, the Brenchcoats era is coming to an end. Dun dun duuuun.

This picture is so perfectly sassy I can’t handle it.
