MUSE OF FIRE RESPONSIBLE: M. Fae Glasgow
HAS POOR VILA BEEN DRAGOONED INTO THIS SHITSHOW? Vila
WHY ARE BLAKE AND AVON DOOMED THIS WEEK? Because Blake is deluded and dangerous and Avon is TOO COOL FOR SCHOOL (eugh) but also a woob but also ICE COLD but also god you know what fuck it
EDITOR’S NOTE: feels like beginning of Torchwood or something
PROSE: oh god the Vila dialogueOVERALL: In someone else’s hands I’d describe this as three intelligent people who think REALLY differently, but I don’t think we’re supposed to see this Blake as anything but a deluded moron Avon might well fall for despite the blazing rightness of his contempt for Blake. I think probably Glasgow believes Vila is allowed to be The Voice of Reason here, and to be righter than Avon, but not in any ways that actually–threaten Avon, as Blake is casually threatened here? I hate sort of–false conditions to call people on, it’s like that Davros ‘you make people killersssssss, Doctor!!’ shit when actually that is a false flag, or at best a THOUSANDTH part of the structural issues with the show/character at that point. I’ve talked about the False Call-Out before. And actually Vila here ‘undermines’ Avon in ways that only serve to highlight Avon’s Specialness? Also, sometimes Glasgow does this thing with Blake pining after Avon that I like in a guilty pleasure way, but it often goes on too long?
