Where Do They Find Them And WHY Do They Keep Sending Them To Me?  
When reviewing a fic at The Pit of Voles, please pay close attention to the section of a fandom you're in. More specifically, the part that tells you if it's a TV show or a movie series. Reeveverse and Returns-verse are not Smallville. If you watch Smallville and you wander into Movieverse and find the characterization not to your liking, please either stop reading or realize where you are. Do NOT attack a pairing or characterization that you don't GET. Or if you do, do your homework and find out what Movieverse means for you, your favorite character, or your favorite pairing. Things change from one version to another and you'll only look foolish. 

Guess how my morning just went? Did you guys know Lana was black-haired in the movieverse? *disgusted sigh*

ETA: Anissa Strikes Back.

*facepalm*

Times like these, you just want to send certain segments of fandom to remedial classes. O_o

A small quote:

Lana is NOT a mindless red headed chearleader. She actually has black hair, is a badass who almost married Lex, then spied on Lex with supercomputers, stole his promethius project after escaping from men with guns, and got superpowers of her own, and the biosuit under her body absorbed kryptonite when Lex made it so she had to diffuse a kryptonite bomb so she can never even be near Clark, much less see him in a flight from Mexico to Metropolis. Wanting Lana to not be with Clark is one thing, but making her seem like a bimbo chearleader is quite another. Lana quit cheerleading in the second week of freshman year, if you remember correctly.

Okay, does any of this sound like my Lana? At all? This is SMALLVILLE! And I could choke someone over the 'mindless'. Not in my 'verse!

It's when stupid people do stupid stuff like this that I think that some people shouldn't be allowed to breed.
Lois: Lois :: Badasskalalanekent on August 18th, 2010 06:04 pm (UTC)
See above comment for details. *makes face* Do they not even know where they are? Do they really think SV and the Movieverse are the same? Seriously?

Oh, my... the hair color is the least of the verse differences. *shakes head at people*

Good freaking god, as if your verse didn't have Reeveverse WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. *matching disgusted sigh* What did you reply?
Lois: Heirs :: Lois :: Me and A Gunkalalanekent on August 18th, 2010 06:48 pm (UTC)
Thank you. And as if it's not in the MOVIEVERSE section, not the TV one.

Just that she had her 'verses mixed up. Then I blocked her.

EPIC FACEPALM!!!

People are just batshit crazy!!! Rahhhh!

(and I left more on Anissa's post.)

*hugs you and smashes the crazy KKLana groupie*
Lois: Lois :: Huh?kalalanekent on August 19th, 2010 04:46 pm (UTC)
It just boogles the mind. Truly. I just don't get how she could get the fandom confused. Srsly.

Yeah. The batshit insane, it is strong with this one. *headdesk*

Tell me about it. If it had made the slightest bit of sense to compare the two, okay. But what...how...HUH?!

*hugs you back*

I really which I still has my "hellcat" Lois avvie among my available ones right now. I just seems so completely apropos. I posted most of my response over and Anissa's so I'm just posting here to say I'm so totally with you guys.

It's one thing to comment on someone's characterization when there's obvious canon to back it up (I do tend to get a little... for lack of a better term... b***y when I do see that without an explanation that the author is doing so in the Author's Note) but so TOTALLY another when you're complaining about something that has CANONICAL support backing up the characterization and complaining on that it doesn't fit your impression of her because your impression is skewed by a different source which is non-canonical. That'd be like saying your Lana is too quiet and nice because you're so enamored with the "New Adventures of Superman." *smirks at the image*
Lois: Richana :: Lana :: Lost in Thoughtkalalanekent on August 19th, 2010 04:51 pm (UTC)
THIS. The part that made me the most crazy, really, was that Lana had just made her first appearance when this girl started ranting. As in, she'd been in no more than a couple of chapter. We were JUST getting to know her and already, she's flipping out.

Whaaaaaat? *facepalm*

Talk about massive reading fail, right there. *shakes head* What a dumbass.

*hugs you and Anissa* I'm sorry you have to deal with that, hon.

(And honestly, how hard is it to keep 'verses straight? Those of us in mainstream DC fandom manage to do it just fine. Then again, this IS a Clana shipper we're talking about...)

THIS THIS THIS THIS THIS!!!!!

Seriously! There was just so much foolishness where this was concerned. I mean, the character had only been in one chapter before she freaked out. There's sixty more chapters that flesh her out. And that's just the most obvious DUH!!!!!

The stupid, I hope it's not catching.

It's actually pretty damn hilarious now. It was then, too, but it's just how 'need chlorine in the gene pool' (to steal a phrase from swingandswirl) the comment was. I'm just... floored. I mean, seriously? And you're posting the on the FIRST CHAPTER she appears in? *headdesk* You may want to read the other SIXTY-THREE chapters to see what I do with her first, okay?

I'm also beyond amused than anyone could read that much of your story without cluing into the fact that it was set in the movieverse.

*throws hands in the air in disgust* I know, right? I could totally see how you could get the two versions of fandom mixed up. *rolls eyes*

What's really scary thing is these stupid people go on to breed more stupid people. Like world already isn't overpopulated with idiots.
Lois: Lois :: Mischeviouskalalanekent on August 19th, 2010 05:09 pm (UTC)
I just wish that some people would learn to read. I mean, this is totally apples and oranges. And you actually have to choose between TV and Movies over there. And I don't think this is listed as a crossover. *sighs heavily*
Brin Londo5brin_londo5 on August 19th, 2010 05:26 pm (UTC)
It only goes to show that Smallville leads to obvious brain damage....
Lois: Lois :: Smart-Ass Grinkalalanekent on August 19th, 2010 05:31 pm (UTC)
XD Only if you try to keep up with their version of canon. Although I have to say that I'm seriously loving the show right now. Infusions of sweet, sweet canon make up for it!

OMG, hi, you! Long time, no see! *hugs* Sorry I haven't been over at ES lately. I just can't keep up with everything over there. I'm always about twenty comments behind even when I go every night.
Brin Londo5brin_londo5 on August 19th, 2010 10:50 pm (UTC)
I admit individual episodes can be well-written, but all in all, I have to place myself into a self-hypnotic state before watching, granting me canon-amnesia in order to enjoy it.

Don't sweat not getting to ES lately, I JUST got my computer back today, and am having to manually pull up and save my internet bookmarks INDIVIDUALLY, one-by-one, so it might be a day or two until I can, either...
