I am rather tired of fanbases being blamed for everything.
I've been a fan for a long time. Devoted fan since 86.
I threw things at the tv when Roman came back, and the Roman I loved was gone. I remember all of my friends being just as upset as I was. We tuned out. Then we tuned back in after we chilled. Writers didn't say, oops, that's the story I want to tell, but it bothers J&M fans so we'll fix things.
I hated Marlena going back to Roman after the affair, the writers didn't care. They focused on their job. Good story telling.
I couldn't believe after MB, they had John still in love with Kristen. Ridiculous. Guess what, the writers still wrote THEIR stories (thank goodness).
After Possession, SURELY J&M would realize what they mean to each other. NADA....
After Aremid, FINALLY they knew but now they were both stupid.... sigh, but Ok, I was cursing the writers but still glued to the tv because those darn pesky stupid writers had me right where they wanted me. Sure I was furious and yelling at the tv. But I rushed home those days when I thought something might happen. They dragged it out to the point where I started not caring, then threw the Secret Room at me. Vicious evil sadistic writers. I LOVED them!!!
I hated Marlena and John having trouble over all the Gina/Hope/merc John story. I was so mad on their honeymoon, I ranted all over the house and vowed never to watch again. Looking back, it's one of my favorite stories. Sure, I hated elements of it, but some of it was amazing. The John backstory was awesome. John and Stefano were riveting in their scenes. Marlena/Bo/Hope/John were all amazing. No wonder these vets have hung around. They are talented and have great chemistry together. So did I rant and rave during this story? All the time. But the writers stuck to their story for the most part.
I do agree that when writers start reacting prematurely to any risk to fans vs. writing what they know are good stories, it's a problem, but how do you blame a fan for feeling like they do? Just because I want J&M to be happy, doesn't mean you have to write lollipop stories that give that to me. I really don't want boring stories, but I love to rant at good stories.
There is plenty to write for J&M. We just don't have writers or producers or whatever that are willing to anymore.
I refuse to feel guilty for throwing popcorn at Kristen every time I saw her back in 96.
