Favourite Sophy quotes about Faberry
Always Faberry. Always Rophy.
You don’t know this thing about me because I don’t like to talk about it very much because I would much rather spend my time swooning over stories with you, but I have struggled mightily with depression over the last year. My doctor can’t seem to decide if it’s seasonal or situational or a…

Okay friends and fans, here’s the diggity dealio: I’m sure by now everyone is aware that our beloved 1940s girl power gem of a television program has not been renewed for a third season (promise of a TV movie as consolation, but we’ll leave that discussion for others and elsewhere) and we are all dealing with this news in a variety of ways (I personally am stress eating and crying over cast tweets) (to each their own), but I think I can safely say that we all agree on the feeling of “man oh man am I going to miss the ever loving shit out of this show”. As I scroll through my dash, I see post after post about why Bomb Girls is great and why it’s important television and why and how it has affected so many of us in so many different ways and I thought— why not compile all these feelings into a wonderful video of love and adoration?! We’re not going to magically get the show a third season, I think we’re sadly beyond that, but we can let those involved know just how much they and their work has meant to us (and means to us!).
It’ll be simple. Make a video of yourself explaining why you love Bomb Girls, how Bomb Girls has affected you as a viewer, or any other sort of ooey gooey feelings you have about the show, its characters, and the people who brought them to life. Email it to me (Lizzie!) at firstname.lastname@example.org, the incredibly creative gmail account I made specifically for this occasion, with your name and where you’re from. Keep ‘em shortish in length so the end result doesn’t end up being too crazy long (and if you have more to say, maybe we can create a sort of online scrapbook with longer notes of appreciation and other things) (and hey, if you don’t want to/don’t feel comfortable/are unable to make a video, just send me a little note and I’ll make sure it makes its way into the end product). I’ll edit them all together into one video bursting with happy and love and probably rainbows and we’ll tweet it to the cast and creators so they know just how much we have loved this ride we’ve been on with them.
Deadline is undetermined— sooner is better!— but I’m in finals week at school and I want to give people the time they need to say just what they want to say. I’ll post in the tag when I come up with a solid ~due date~ so keep an eye out for that.
Finally, share this post with everyone you know who likes the show!! I know I’m personally super easily excitable and over enthusiastic about this sort of thing, but I think it could be a really lovely sort of gift to the show and the people involved. A thank you, in a way. A token of our appreciation (and fangirlish glee).
Feel free to email/message me with any questions, concerns, or suggestions on how to make this the bestest of all things.
I’ve mentioned before that I was born and bred as a Southern Baptist, raised to walk along the narrow path of the most conservative interpretations of the Bible and vote within the guidelines set forth by the Jerry Falwells and James Dobsons of the world. Luckily, I was also born with a good set of critical thinking genes and a hunger for knowledge, so in my grown-up life, I was able to walk away from organized Christianity — which I believe has entered into a mutual hijacking situation with the Republican party, the goal of which is to consolidate power by exploiting ignorance and fear — and reconcile my Biblical knowledge with my life experiences with my intrinsic value system of mercy and goodness.
Funny thing about spending all those years in church, though: I know more about the Bible than I will ever know about anything else. I studied it like it was my job for two decades of my life.
I often have run-ins with former buddies from church, all of whom are really wonderful people on the inside, but most of whom do not have a particularly thorough or enlightened understanding of politics or history or religion. What usually happens is they do some Bible verse-slinging at me, and I patiently try to explain where they’ve been duped by their church or their politicians or their own ingrained prejudices.
Today, I realized it would probably be an even better idea if I just made a reference post so I can point people here and save myself some typing time. Hopefully, you guys will be able to use this as a resource too.
