CJKnick, it's funny. I distinctly recall defending EJ when he was called a rapist, the same as I defended Lucas when he was bashed. I never really had anything against EJ except for the extreme hero-worship. What I hated were the dumb Lumi-EJami wars. AT one time, I didn't care WHO Sami ended up with. I would have been happy with either solution. So, if you're referring to me, I just blew your theory out the water. In a debate, it helps to do your research. ;) If it seemed I bashed EJ more, perhaps it was because, well, certain parties were more VOCAL about their dahling's perfection than the other? I was sick of the nastiness towards Lucas that turned into out and out Bryan Datillo bashing.That's what finally turned me off to EJ for a while. I couldn't go there. So your argument about how funny it is that the "shoe is on the other foot" doesn't wash with me. In fact, (in regards to others) you should be HAPPY that James Scott has more fans, if it is that. I'm willing to wager that a lot of Lumi and anti-EJ fans were never anti-James Scott fans. They're not allowed to change their minds about a character? I've certainly done that over the years, and yes, it can happen if they see a character with a new significant other that seems to click more with that viewer than the previous one. I couldn't stand Belle until she was with JKJ's Philip. I never liked JC's Shawn and FF's Mimi until they put Shimi together. I always liked James Scott. I just quit liking the whole Ejami thing from the writing and the "my guy's shit don't stink" attitude I was getting from quite a few parties.
And now, that he's in Nicole's orbit, I can find him more enjoyable again. The whole EJami aura and pimping is over, or at least, I thought it was I should have known better. :shrug: I was hoping to possibly enjoy him with someone else and possibly, see the start of a new relationship for him done right. And, to me, it seemed that James Scott has that twinkle in his eye again. For a while, with Sami/Allison, it seemed that both parties were sick of what was going on. That's my perception as someone who was NOT involved with a fanbase, but tried to see the actor AND character as an individual entity. I wasn't going to fanwank. I never thought much of Nicole one way or another until this round, although I enjoyed her previously. Ari's past acting classes have paid off, and I see two well-trained actors kicking ass around each other, playing off each other, and enjoying something new and different. I know you're going to spout about how you see the chemistry with James and Ali, yada, yada, so please spare me. You've pretty well restated yourself over and over.
Course, with the writing, I was wrong there, but at least, until now, I could enjoy him without the ever-lasting fanbase wars. And, although I'm a Nicole AND EJ fan, I don't consider myself part of a fanbase. I'm not going there again. And, when the writing stinks, depending on how dark they make EJ go, I might continue to like him or I might dislike him again. He's a stinking fictional character, for pete's sake. They can change him on a whim, and I can change my notions about THE CHARACTER on a whim. That's my perogative as a viewer of a soap opera, viewing FICTIONAL characters. It's a form of relaxation and entertainment, for pete's sake, not a way of life!
Rant over. Damn, if I keep writing any more books, I'm gonna have to get them published! "LadyoftheLake's take on soap opera debates and rants". :D
