The fact that there’s Seaver hate on day one of the appreciation week really pisses me off. Guess what? I’m not the biggest Ashley Seaver fan, but I’m participating and enjoying it and starting to come around on what an amazing character she was.
The main argument seems to be she’s useless. Lol I’m sorry, what? How would they have solved her first case without her personal experiences? How would they have found Prentiss if it wasn’t for her being the freshest eyes and knowing what to do? Answer - they wouldn’t.
Then there’s ‘she’s not JJ’. No. She wasn’t. And that’s not her fault. What happened with season 6 behind the scenes had nothing to do with her. She was just brought in at a time where the fans (and even people on the show) were pretty pissed off, and that wasn’t fair to her at all. We as fans can’t hold a grudge against a character because some shitty decisions were made.
Don’t be an asshat. Don’t like her, good for you. You don’t need to post your opinions on things that are geared toward appreciating the character.
ashley seaver being ‘ineffectual’
she fucked up once. she was still a student. she fucked up ONCE.
remember when rossi joined the team and was fucking up because he was wasn’t being a ‘team player’ and hotch told him to get his shit together?
lol and @ reid fucking up all the time but no one says anything bc you’ll all infantilize him to the grave
a male character can fuck up over and over again and, ‘AW BABY ILY IT’S OK WHO NEEDS RULES IT DOESN’T EVEN MATTER THAT IRL YOU WOULD’VE BEEN FIRED AWW’
but when a female character makes one mistake it’s game over. she’s the scum of the earth. incapable of learning. must be badass and flawless from the womb.
ahhh I love the smell of Luise’s fear in the evening
Incredible how Aaron Hotchner can beat to death a serial killer with his bare hands and the fandom loves him for it and ignores the fact it was incredibly wrong and Ashley Seaver slips up once and is suddenly the worst character in the show’s existence.
Sit down and shut up.
"EVERYONE born in the 90’s remembers this show! if you don’t know this you had a horrible childhood!"
*picture of a purely north american tv-show that was never broadcasted anywhere outside their borders*
i can only handle so much socializing until i get tired and start getting irritated towards everyone and want to go home and sleep or lock myself in my room and go on the computer
This is what it means to be an introvert. Not being shy. This.
Also, the pentiss favouring seaver hate calling her useless amuses me to no ends because if it wasn’t for Ashley being, you know, useful, they never would have figured out the profile to find out where Prentiss was and Doyle would have flat out killed her.
