Welcome to the pre-show. Today is special because I just realized that this is the same week I found Emmerdale. So, sit down children and enjoy this small story of my entrance into a crazy land that is the Emmerdale fandom.So, last October, I was bored and scrolling through Tumblr when someone I followed posted this picture:
I stared at it thinking that it was cute and then scrolled on. Then I scrolled back to it. Scrolled on. Then went back. Looked at the tags and saw: Aaron Dingle x Robert Sugden was tagged. I clicked on it and found it was part of Emmerdale. Against my better judgment, I went and googled Emmerdale which gave me all the information I needed. I floundered around for a week or so checking out some fanfiction and gifs wondering about those two. Finally, I sent out a message onto Tumblr asking for some help. I asked for a channel that had their story. I got two messages and a warning.
Thinking they were being overdramatic I shrugged and went to the link and I haven’t looked back. I didn’t watch my first full-blown episode until January and that was on some shady website I’m sure gave me a virus on my old computer. Then I got some help on watching live and my backup Britbox appeared. In fact, the first episode I watched on Britbox was the Robron wedding. A lot has happened since I jumped into this world but I’ve enjoyed my time here. I’m positive things will get better very soon. I know people are upset at current events but we have an endpoint. We know Robert and Aaron find their way back to each other. As they always will. Also, this Roberts story and I’m loving that he is getting some focus. Last year was about Robert being there for Aaron once he hit rock bottom. This year it is Aaron being there for Robert after hitting rock bottom. There is more to it but it makes my heart sing. It has been one hell of a ride and we aren’t done yet. Never a dull moment and I wouldn’t have it any other way.
(On a random note: I think I’m more excited to see Rebecca’s face when she realizes that Robert picked Chrissie, Aaron and now Lawrence over her. He was sober for all of them too. Anyone but her makes me laugh so hard I can’t breathe. Oh…and….GOATS. Goats forever and ever. Amen.)
Let’s crack on, shall we?
With all the talk of Chas and Paddy, I guess that is why we are getting Rhona stuff.
“Can’t you all get along with your own tiny lives please?” – Then there wouldn’t be a show Vanessa! I’m just saying.
Vanessa is confused. She doesn’t need people making her more confused. I feel like all people have to do is listen. Listen to what Vanessa has to say. How she feels.
SOCK MONKEY! *This is an old obsession. I collected them for a while. They live on my tree. Long story. Pictures to come*
So, Vanessa, you might be bi. Or you need to get out there and figure out what you want. I can’t wait to see the talk Robert and Vanessa are going to have next week.
I don’t understand the maple syrup thing either, Jai.
I think she needed to be immature to start the healing process.
The Café Crew
I’ve been watching 2009 episodes, and I love Brenda with brown hair. It looks great on her.
Dark and white. Chrissie is in white and Rebecca is in black. It’s interesting.
I usually tune out of any scenes with Rebecca, so that is all I got.
Um….Robert looks good. He always looks good. He would look better with a dirty little grease monkey on his arm.
I love how everyone in town is having a gossip session with the cops.
God Pete is still mad. I thought he would have calmed down by now.
Nicola coo-ing over Laurel and Dotty. That is adorable.
Dude. Watch your mouth around Tracy. She is upset over Finn too. You guys are in the same boat.
Pete is upset but also…guility? *dun duuunnn dun!*
I forgot they had to bury Emma next. Two Funerals. That has to be crazy expensive.
Lawrence looking for his best friend, booze. That is Lawrence’s true love.
Awkward. Thanks, Tracy.
Oh god. Lawrence and Rebecca are the stupidest people in the history of Home Farm. *waits for fans to argue with me*
Chrissie is the only one doing due diligence. Same with Lachlan. I see Lachlan is the only one who seems to know what is going on. Lachlan called Rebecca stupid too. That cracked me up.
Lachlan. On a scale of 1-5 (5 being the most serial killer), how are you feeling today? *Will never give up on this rumor!*
“Your sister won this on her own merits!” *FOOTAGE NOT FOUND*
This is getting funny now. *LAUGHS*
*Awwww…another cute baby!*
Leyla has been the other woman before. You would think she would understand forgiveness. More people getting a taste of their own medicine? Another theme.
True. That is a theme. Turning back time. Turning back bad decisions and mistakes. Can we? Can they?
Oh god! That is horrifying. The shaking stroller? God. *bubble wrap comes out*
Poor baby! *sad face*
Awwwww, they are hugging. Now…go after Pete. *evil smile*
POOR BABY! *BUBBLE WRAPS MEGAN AND JAI*
Does anyone work here anymore? Aaron? Adam? ANYONE? Just Robert. Is Robert keeping the business going too?
This actor is proactive. Well, not really.
OH GOD. Robert needs to find better actors. *SNORTS* His beautiful face.
‘It’s Just Speculation!’
As per usual: Stay off the message boards, respect each other’s opinions, breathe, reboot and eat a Snickers. If you want to talk theory or the show come on over to my twitter and Tumblr @AmandaJ718
Until next time, see you around in Emmerdale!
