now why do I go on Twitter and find out that Gina wasn't casted as Gabriella bc she wasn't "innocent" enought to play her?? no bc I'm fucking pissed that makes no sense. gina is a new student, a sophomore, so one of the youngest people in the cast, and the only interaction ms jenn had with her prior to casting was her audition; there was no way to gauge "innocence" from this limited interaction except for racism. she was (and is) more qualified that nini at every step and the literal only reason nini was casted was bc she was calm when the lights went out and remained committed to her performance. it's simply not adding up. also on ricky's sheet, she said he had off the charts chemistry with nini but they weren't even casted yet so why did it matter??? ugh Gina DESERVED to be gabriella no one can tell me different like me jenn is simply anti-Black. gina had every single right to feel robbed; she fucking toured with Annie when she was younger while nini was playing the back end of a cow. yeah Disney will pay for their crimes. also including the pics of the auditions from the book
Um yeah so does anyone else think it's weird how they just rewrite Ricky and Nini's backstory like first they met in 7th grade, but then they changed it to like 1st grade or something. Idk what the point of that was, but I liked it better that they were just each other's first loves and first relationship bc then at least his commitment issues make sense, like ur gonna know someone since kindergarten and not be able to say "ily"? And it kinda just makes them seem codependent and weird like they've spent their whole lives together and can't function without each other. Like literally, Nini couldn't do the play unless Ricky was Troy. And Ricky can only go to Nini with his problems (which is ok i guess except its kinda rude to use someone to unload all your emotional baggage on after you hurt them but also made it clear you want them back? Idk seems like a lot of mind games to me! Like it can't just be on ur terms Ricardo!) Anyway, yeah...I think this new backstory was just to escape from Nini/EJ and Ricky/Gina but it actually made it worse bc their feelings toward the other 2 were just dropped like a hot potato out of the blue. Like wouldn't it make more sense if Nini actually liked EJ and Ricky had to work harder to win her back? Idk I would make him work harder! If I was Nini, I would be thinking "hmm so you joined the play to prove your commitment to me meanwhile I have to walk in on you serenading Gina and ya'll 2 going to the skate park? No, ma'am!" And I don't even like Ricky and Gina anyways, but it was weird how quickly his feelings shifted and how cold he acted toward her when she came back. It's like why even have that plot in the first place then when you might as well have just made them friends? But then u also can't act like you didn't and try to ignore EJ and Gina just bc Rini is back together. You shouldn't have to disregard one relationship to build up another, especially bc Rini was already good and didn't need to do that by adding this new backstory and other mumbo jumbo. Real stupid luv. Rini got back together too soon, and the backstory of them knowing each other their whole lives just makes them seem codependent. It was good that Ricky was able to finally express his feelings, but the whole last ep was kinda rushed. And with Nini going to this new skool and stuff...idk doesn't seem the best time!
Moving on...anyone else think seblos is just nothing? Like it's good that people want representation, but how many times is there gonna be an LGBT couple that gets thrown together with no build up and just exists in the background while everybody uwus over them bc they make it up in their heads! I am not gonna sit here liking seblos bc idk why they're together! They just were together all of a sudden like...wut? I personally would like Seb a lot more if they acknowledged his shadiness bc that one scene w Kourtney where he said "don't quit make up to be in the show! Ur so good at it" was a dif way of saying "U stay in make up bc that's where u belong and i don't want u to steal my spotlight. Stick to the status quo." And he's Sharpay so it makes sense, right? Guess not bc everyone just treats him like a smol angel bean! He's a Slytherin!
Big Red and Ashlyn is the worst thing ever btw! All their "flirting" is major cringe and forced and they both seem geekburger to me. I don't get why people want them together except bc they're bored. If anybody likes this pairing, hmu bc I would luv to fight about it!
Gina is also overrated imo. She just gets the Jade treatment while errbody hte on Nini and for why? Ugh ya'll will never be the GMW fandom! 😩
y’all the hsmtmts instagram is STILL using those pictures of seblos that we didn’t even get to see in the show to advertise. i hope they improve their advertising next season because that isn’t okay. for many reasons.
I started to write a fic, but I got stuck. Because on one hand Big Red and Ashlyn are adorable together and Big Red deserves good things. On the other hand: Ashlyn is a useless lesbian if I’ve ever seen one
Do I write it with Big Red/Ashlyn (adorable couple) or do I just make Ashlyn the lesbian icon she deserves to be?
