Did Edlund said it was a mistake though? Because I’ve always had theories for that line. In any case, I just love that moment.

No, he’s never said anything about it one way or the other, as far as I know. But other writers (Glass and Thompson, if I remember correctly) have acknowledged that it was a mistake.

In light of Meta Fiction, I am even more certain than I was at the time that that WAS NOT a continuity error…

I do think it was an error. But I think it’s the kind of error that they could easily explain in canon, especially considering (as you pointed out) “Meta Fiction.”

TESSA THE REAPER RETURNS — After a massive attack on the angels, Castiel (Misha Collins) calls Sam (Jared Padalecki) and Dean (Jensen Ackles) for help. As they leave, Dean’s eagerness to bring the First Blade doesn’t go unnoticed by Sam who is worried about the cost to his brother whenever he uses the Blade. Meanwhile, Castiel is shocked when he learns the angel that caused the attack was one of his followers and did it in his name. Dean discovers there is a conspiracy amongst Castiel’s angel followers and at the heart of it is Tessa, the Reaper. Guy Bee directed the episode written by Andrew Dabb (#922).




5/4/2012 marks the air date of Kevin Tran’s debut episode. In two years, Kevin rose from a minor side character to one of the show’s most beloved protagonists. From May 4th to May 10th — and beyond — let’s celebrate Katniss Freakin’ Solo!


From Sunday to Saturday, create as many fanworks for Kevin as you can, and tag them “kevintranweek" so everyone can keep track of what’s being produced.

Whether they’re fanart, fanfiction, fanmixes, icons, GIF sets, or cosplays, show off your work! This initiative is open to any and all pairings, whether popular or rare, so ship away, write gen, or generally do whatever you feel like.

All that matters is that Kevin’s a focal point. He deserves the attention!


Osric loves seeing fanart, so don’t forget to tweet your efforts to him, too!

Yay! Thank you for starting this elendraug!

You know, you can love words and prose and also be a visual thinker.

I don’t know whether to laugh or cry that people have decided this quote means Ben Edlund doesn’t care about anything other than prose and words and knows nothing about the visual and that’s the problem with his directing.

Uh…you do know that he’s an artist? Not just an artist, but a comics artist, which means he knows all about the importance of visual exposition and not just dialogue. When he worked on The Tick cartoon, he was so concerned with the visual aspect of the show that he apparently storyboarded the first few episodes by himself. (Apparently his obsession with making the show look right—among other things—also made it quite a bit late…) He’s said a lot of his ideas start out as pictures and drawings. Phil Sgriccia said one of the strong points he brought to his directing was that he is a very visual thinker

You cannot conclude that he doesn’t care about anything but prose and knows nothing about the visual from a quote where he says his scripts start out with a lot of prose. Just how on earth do you even get “I don’t care about anything but prose” from “I think prose is good.”? Even if you don’t know the first thing about Edlund, that makes no sense. And if you do know anything about him, it becomes a ridiculous misinterpretation of what he said. Personally, I think his visual-orientation contributes to his writing style, because he probably has a very clear image of how he wants things to look and that ends up expanding his drafts with a lot of (possibly descriptive) prose that doesn’t have any place in a script. 

I don’t know whether the directing in TMWWBK (or “Reading is Fundamental”, or “Smile Time”, or that one short film he co-directed) is technically good or weak or whatever. I thought TMWWBK was a strikingly beautiful episode—and both RiF and “Smile Time” had their moments too—so I’m personally satisfied with his directing work. But that’s just my personal opinion; I have no technical knowledge of what makes “good” directing and I am not a visual person myself so I really can’t properly critique it. But I do know that whatever his weaknesses as a director are, they have nothing whatsoever to do with him not understanding or appreciating the importance of the visual.
