There's so much random hate on tumblr... so much... even though gwen's not herself.

*sigh* I can't even enjoy the acting because the fandom is so shitty.

You know they will hate her no matter what.

When it turns out that she was under a spell all along, a lot of people will switch back to loving her again.
m_pendulum 18th-Nov-2012 08:48 am (UTC)
Not that many loved her to begin with.

MTE. This story line is just giving people an actual reason to hate her other than "SHE'S IN THE WAY OF MERTHUR!!!"

I'm still surprised when I read "I HATE GWEN" posts. It's not like she does that much to warrant the hate anyway.

People hate her?! I haven't watched much, but I've loved her from first sight <3

Yeah, I can point you to some evidence...

I just did a recent tumblr post about the random hate.

i don't think that she's under a spell tho, i think that Morgana just seriously messed with her head and fucked her up that way.

that being said, i'm having a real hard time with Gwen being ~evil~ in the first place. i like Gwen, i've always liked this Gwen on the show and Angel is perfect in the role. i just hate what they're doing. now both females are ~evil~ and it causes way too much tension. i wanted Gwen to be badass this season....not bad.

Except the promo description for ep 9 pretty much revealed that she is under a spell. Which gives them an out of course with her. I find it stupid that Morgana wasn't under a spell as well when she came back but was just evil for evil's sake, but they make sure Gwen could never fold like that.

I have to roll my eyes at the people who watch this promo and then crow about being vindicated that Gwen never loved Arthur. I'm like 'you idiots know she's been tortured and under a spell right?'

lol I've legit seen people say it's easier to hate gwen than morgana... and that they love morgana despite the fact that she's evil~

that's why I avoid following too many Merlin tumblrs, the hate people have for her is way OTT and just disgusting

this fandom is awful

Gwen's going to get hate no matter what. She can't win.

I haven't seen anyone rage and bitch about Arthur sentencing Tyr to death and he was innocent. When Gwen did the same thing to a guilty person, all hell broke loose.

wtf?? sometimes you just have to laugh at it.

Right???

Combined with the fact that Gwen actually used her smarts to hatch a plan to use Sefa to her advantage and she wasn't actually going to punish her for treason. When Gwen did it all of a sudden everyone was so fucking concerned for servant's rights and the rights of magical people! There wasn't much outcry either when Merlin literally threw all magical beings besides himself under the bus.

This fandom's so full of shit.
