Why Stranger Things is the greatest thing ever and how it empowers girls and break stereotypes

Stranger Things was the biggest and greatest surprise last year, and with this new season that was just released, Netflix has done it again. This show has rocked my life for a second time, and guys, this is not something that happens often. The first season, released last year 2016, was an ode to the 80’s and a hymn for nerds and outcasts. But this second time around, I couldn’t help but notice that what was a sidekick during season one, stomped into the room and stole the spotlight: GIRL POWER.

Victoria Schwab confirms that ADSOM is being developed for TV!

Victoria Schwab has confirmed that A Darker Shade of Magic is being developed for tv. And this is the best thing eveeeeeeer.

Guys, you need to read this. I am flipping out right now. Okay, let’s talk business here and stop with the rambling and the exclamation points.

I was randomly checking Victoria Schwab’s goodreads profile and I noticed she just updated her blog she updated her blog like a month ago WITH THE MOST AMAZING NEWS EVER. And caps are totally necessary.

You can check the source here.

In her post, Schwab confirms that ADSOM is being developed for a limited tv series in the 10-12 episodes format. But there’s more, oh yes, much more. Schwab has been working with her producer on the script for 6 months, so we know now she will be involved in the project. Which is fantastic! I think when the author has a high degree of involvement in the adaptation, the final result is just better. Closer to what we already love.

Here’s a part of her post:

Q: You’re writing the script?!?!

A: I am indeed. When the producers asked me if I wanted to write the pilot, I thought long and hard about whether it was the right decision. One of my primary reasons for agreeing to adapt the material was the creative control, the opportunity to dictate the aesthetic and story. My producers have involved me in every decision, and promise to continue doing so, and I’m immeasurably grateful. This means that if ADSOM comes to TV, it will do so with my seal of approval. 🙂

The not so good news is that the airing of the show is yet not definitive. So, chances are this project might not take off, but let’s focus on the great start and on the fact that it is currently a work in progress.

Now, we fangirl.

Matthew and Isaiah

Right. Can I please open big fat brackets and say “oh my oh my, holy guacamole with new Alec. Or what!”. Blue eyes you say? Oh no, please ABC don’t make him put on contacts, those green eyes are too cute.

…Wait a minute, I am so much more excited about Matthew – Alec than about Dom – Jace, that’s NEW. And unexpected, ah well what are we gonna do, right? There it goes one more reason for watching the tv show. He!

And speaking of, Cassandra shared on her tumblr that cutie Matthew auditioned for Jace’s role. Surprisingly enough, she felt he would make an excellent Alec… in Cassie Clare we trust! Hell yeah.

Now that she mentions that The Lightwoods will be a mixed race family, I want to tell you, people, stop complaining about Luke’s casting choice. Oh my! Luke’s ethnicity was different on the books, so what? Big deal.  Well, what do you think, shadowhunters? BTW, Cassandra has shared on one of her social media accounts (don’t remember which one) that they are looking for an Asian Magnus. Yay! Don’t think they are getting Godfrey Gao back but ah well.And before I go…
